Democrat Virginia governor Ralph Northam wrote an editorial for the VMI Cadet student newspaper during his time at the Virginia Military Institute explaining the honor code expulsion policy at the college. In the editorial, he said that “personal honor seems to mean little” on “the city streets.”
Northam’s views on race are now coming under scrutiny as the governor tries to rebound from Big League Politics’ publication of the blackface-KKK photo on his medical school yearbook page.
Northam was president of the VMI Honor Court in his senior year, and as such he presided over the “drumming out” of students found to have committed honor code violations.
“In this time when personal honor seems to mean little, from the city streets to the highest echelons of government, it is essential that the Honor Code at VMI be tirelessly defended and upheld not only for the sake of today’s Corps of Cadets but also for those who have been and for those cadets who follow,” Northam wrote on August 20, 1980 in a piece entitled, “Code of A Gentleman.”
“I put it back to the former Honor Court President of the VMI Class of 1981, Governor Ralph,” says VMI graduate Roger Jarrell in a statement provided to Big League Politics. Jarrell did not attend VMI at the same time as Northam, but knows about the drumming-out process that Northam describes in his op-ed.
“When VMI cadets are “drummed out” for honor violations, the Honor Court wakes the entire corps of cadets in the dead of night. The Honor Court President then marches around the courtyard explaining that an individual cadet had been found guilty of an honor violation ‘placing personal gain above personal honor and that his name will never be mentioned within the four walls of the Institute again.’ Any alumnus can describe in great detail how those drums sounded and can describe in great detail the first drumming out ceremony they experiended as ‘Rats,'” Jarrell said.
“We used to call it a bongo furlough meaning that it was permanent…not the way to end one’s tenure at VMI. As Honor Court President, Ralph Northam presided over countless drumming out ceremonies and the underlying pre-trials and trials conducted under the UCMJ. He more than any other knows what it is to place personal gain over personal honor. Right now, the people of Virginia have lost faith in him. They know longer want him in office. By staying in office in whatever meager attempt to vindicate himself, he is truly placing personal gain above personal honor,” Jarrell said.
The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now
Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.
She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.
Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.
Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.
However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.
She told BLP:
Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.
Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive. It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.
Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country! Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.
DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.
Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.
This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.
Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.
Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.
In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.
Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.
This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.
The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
