Here is Northam’s statement:
“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive.
I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.
This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment.
I recognize that it will take time and serious effort to heal the damage this conduct has caused. I am ready to do that important work. The first step is to offer my sincerest apology and to state my absolute commitment to living up to the expectations Virginians set for me when they elected me to be their governor.”
But Northam has shown a disturbing pattern of behavior.
Northam refused to shake the hand of his black opponent E.W. Jackson during a 2013 televised debate in the Virginia lieutenant governor’s race.
E.W. Jackson, his black opponent, said that Northam is “consistent” in his behavior, and not shaking his hand was just evidence of that.
“It was insulting, but, on the other hand, I thought it was consistent with the way he behaves. Because, this spot he’s been running, saying that I believe that a child born with birth defects is born that way because of their parents’ sin is just a damnable, palpable, despicable lie. I don’t believe that. I never said anything like that. And it’s that kind of dishonesty that, to me, says this is not the kind of person that needs to be holding state-wide office. Not shaking my hand really just confirmed that,” E.W. Jackson said in an interview on WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall.
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.
