Disgraced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who Big League Politics exposed in either a KKK hood or blackface in a racist photo in his college yearbook, is calling a special session to address gun control in the wake of the Virginia Beach shooting.
Northam, who admitted he was in the racist photograph revealed in February, stated on Tuesday that he wants every state lawmaker to go on record for or against his gun control schemes during the special session that is set to take place this summer.
He prefers this method to the traditional way of having bills go through subcommittees where they will likely be killed.
Northam stated, “I ask that the members of the General Assembly engage in an open and transparent debate and that the bills brought before the legislature are put to a vote by the entire General Assembly.”
He added, “The nation will be watching.”
Northam told the Associated Press that he wants the Republican-controlled legislature to listen to public outcry for more gun control. One GOP lawmaker indicated on Monday that he’s open to debate, but doesn’t believe that Northam’s bills will pass.
This shooting witnessed Virginia Beach city employee DeWayne Craddock use two .45 handguns, which he acquired legally to kill 12 people. In other words, he had to pass a federal background check to acquire his firearms. Craddock was killed by police in a gun battle.
As far as gun control bills are concerned, Northam wants universal gun registration, limits to one handgun purchase per month, and a “red flag” gun confiscation bill that would allow law enforcement to seize a person’s guns.
Republican control of the legislature will make it difficult for Virginia to pass gun control.
However, the 2019 elections will likely be centered on gun control, which will put Republicans to the test on the issue.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows Makes Attempt to Nab Traitorous Leakers
On July 12, 2020, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows announced that he gave several pieces of information to suspected leakers.
According to Axios, Meadows has proceeded to do this “to reporters — a trap that would confirm his suspicions.”
“Meadows told me he was doing that,” commented one former White House official. “I don’t know if it ever worked.”
The Trump administration has been plagued with leaks since day one. Meadows has taken it upon himself to find the leakers and expose them for subverting President Trump’s agenda.
One leak that recently infuriated Trump was involved an alleged Russian plot to pay the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers.
Trump was also furious when the New York Times revealed that the Secret Service took him down to the bunker while riots raged outside the White House.
Although Meadows has not caught any high-profile leakers so far, a source close to Meadows said he is “focused on national security leaks and could care less about the palace intrigue stories.”
However, during a recent podcast with Ted Cruz, Meadows revealed that they discovered and fired a federal employee who was caught leaking information about a White House social media executive order.
Trump will ultimately need to get his house in order if he wants to keep his agenda coherent and intact.
One of the overarching themes of the Trump administration has been in its inability to tame subversive advisers and other actors within the administration.
This allows for Trump’s America First agenda to be derailed while legacy institutions like the defense industry benefit greatly.
D.C. is in desperate need of a cleanse and it starts within the executive branch.
