After threatening to sue Big League Politics in a desperate 3 a.m. denial of sexual assault allegations, the Democratic Lieutenant Governor of Virginia claimed that he was smeared by The Washington Post, and threatened legal action against them, too.
Justin Fairfax says the allegations levied against him by Stanford professor Vanessa Tyson are false, and responded to a Washington Post report, in which Jeff Bezos’ blog claimed that it, too, had heard of such allegations, by threatening to take the publication to court. The paper contradicted some of the facts in Fairfax’s original denial of the allegations, so he threatened legal action.
This type of smear is what we meant when we said that politics and the coverage of it needs to rise to a higher level that befits our country and the 400-year history of our Commonwealth. This is what we meant when we said that people who continue to spread these false allegations will be sued.
We ask further: What other major elected official in the Commonwealth of Virginia would be smeared with sexual allegations that were presented without corroboration?
Nobody should be unfairly smeared.
But here’s the thing: The Washington Post traffics in uncorroborated reports of sexual misconduct regularly. It’s one of their tactics for making sure democracy doesn’t die in darkness. For proof, see Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. For further proof, see former U.S. Senate Candidate Judge Roy Moore.
By the way, let’s not forget that the paper failed to report these allegations in the first place, despite the fact that they are at least as detailed, if not more detailed, than those of the Kavanaugh and Moore cases. Big League Politics had to report the allegations first, thursting them into broad daylight (where democracy lives).
Fairfax wants sympathy? He feels as though he’s been unfairly smeared by the news media? Welcome to the life of every Republican, ever! Unless Washington Post is planning to re-work its editorial standards and publicly retract every story it wrote about Kavanaugh, Fairfax has no room to gripe.
And what about the ordinary American conservatives? You know, the ones who just wanted to be left alone, but instead were slandered for decades as backwards, racist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, xenophobic, sexist, misogynistic, and hateful by the likes of WaPo and the rest of the mainstream press?
It’s going to take more than one report about allegations of sexual assault – allegations that Fairfax himself confirmed existed – for this reporter to lose a wink of sleep over it.
The political left made these rules. Now they have to abide by them. Cry me a river.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time
The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.
She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.
“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.
“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.
Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.
“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.
Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.
“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.
President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.
"This was a wealth transfer… do the math. The $1,200 check is just the cheese in the trap" @RepThomasMassie stood alone in Congress against last week's 2 trillion-dollar stimulus package. He explains why it SHOULDN'T have been a controversy. #istandwithmassie pic.twitter.com/nPPNYh5vkS

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.
…& costly. Workers & small businesses need money now in order to survive. Virus wasn’t their fault. It is “HELL” dealing with the Dems, had to give up some stupid things in order to get the “big picture” done. 90% GREAT! WIN BACK HOUSE, but throw Massie out of Republican Party!

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
