As Virginia continues its response to the coronavirus, Gov. Ralph Northam has made it a crime for people to attend church.
The governor now so infamous for appearing in a Klan hood in a college photo, issued an autocratic executive order to ban people from attending church in groups larger than ten worshipers.
You read that right. KKK Northam has made it a crime for “too many” people to attend church.
Northam’s order concerns such gatherings in two sections, according to CNSNews.
Paragraph 1 says: “Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Article V, Section 7 of the Constitution of Virginia, by § 44-146.17 of the Code of Virginia and in furtherance of Executive Order 51, I order the following: 1. Effective 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, March 24, 2020 until 11:59 p.m., Thursday, April 23, 2020, all public and private in person gatherings of 10 or more individuals are prohibited.”
The second relevant section of the order says: “Violation of paragraphs 1, 3, 4, and 6 of this Order shall be a Class 1 misdemeanor pursuant to § 44-146.17 of the Code of Virginia.”
The order adds, “Executive orders, to include those declaring a state of emergency and directing evacuation, shall have the force and effect of law and the violation thereof shall be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor in every case where the executive order declares that its violation shall have such force and effect.”
Granted the executive order does not specifically mention churches. But the inference is clear that a church service would qualify as an illegal gathering.
After all, how many church services have you been to that have less than ten worshipers?
Still, Northam’s government did put out another info sheet telling Virginians to “seek alternative means of attending religious services, such as virtually or via ‘drive-through’ worship. Places of worship that do conduct in-person services must limit gatherings to 10 people, to comply with the statewide 10-person ban.”
The website info is incontrovertible proof that the Executive Order bans church services.
So, what would the penalty be for daring to go to church?
The Code of Virginia spells out the punishment in § 18.2-11. It says: “The authorized punishments for conviction of a misdemeanor are: (a) For Class 1 misdemeanors, confinement in jail for not more than twelve months and a fine of not more than $2,500, either or both.”
Is this what we want governments doing? Especially in the very state that led the nation in implementing religious freedom?
Northam took a wave of criticism early in 2019 after a photo showing him wearing a Klan hood in college went viral.
In February of last year, an avalanche of information that depicted Northam as a long-time racist came out, including that his college nickname was “Coonman.” But the photo that appeared on a page of the governor’s med school yearbook was the most damning. It depicts a student in blackface standing next to a student dressed in the white robe and pointy hood of the Ku Klux Klan.
On Friday evening, Northam apologized for the photo and even confirmed that he was one of the two figures in the photo — though he refused to say if he was the student in blackface or the one in the KKK hood.
Still, many think he is the one in the Klan hood.

Yes @NYGovCuomo is wearing a mask! He is wearing it wrong just. If you don’t wear your mask correctly it is worse than no mask. Remember when this started they didn’t want masks because people don’t wear them correctly. Cuomo is an idiot, can’t even wear a mask correctly!

What, wear a mask wrong? Shove sick old people into homes that can’t take care of them – leading to the highest death rate in the country? Complain about not having enough while sitting on the stock he has? Mismanaging the state economy then having to beg to be bailed out?

Holy cow! Not only did @NYGovCuomo kill many seniors with his order that Nursing homes take Covid positive seniors, he is too ignorant to know how to wear a mask properly.
— GalRN (@rn_gal) May 28, 2020
Bless your heart ma’am, a real leader would know how to wear a protective mask. They would also know not to send COVID-19 patients back to a nursing home. And, no ma’am it ain’t the Federal Governements fault.

Joe Biden Confuses D-Day With Pearl Harbor
Joe Biden seemed to confuse the anniversaries of D-Day and Pearl Harbor when speaking during a live-streamed event on Wednesday.
Biden said that Delaware ‘declared our independence on December the 7th, by the way. And it’s not just D-Day’ when the governor remarked that parts of the state were formerly in Pennsylvania.
His campaign denied that the former VP had confused the date of the D-Day invasion of northern Europe in World War II with the date of Pearl Harbor Day during a fundraiser.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden confused D-Day and Pearl Harbor—as well as the date that Delaware declared its independence from neighboring Pennsylvania—at a Wednesday campaign event.
“We declared our independence on December the 7th. It’s not just D-Day,” Biden said in an online townhall with Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf, referring to Delaware’s breakaway from Pennsylvania.
While President Franklin D. Roosevelt did declare December 7 a day that “will live in infamy,” the date marks the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy, took place almost three years later, on June 6, 1944. More
A typical day for a Biden staffer begins with denying, clarifying, mischaracterizing, deflecting, and pretending that Joe Biden didn’t actually say what he said yesterday.
There is no way in hell that Joe Biden could beat President Trump in the 2020 election! This man is STUPID – PERIOD! Fight strong against #VoterFraud #MailInVoting because it’s the only way this empty vessel could win.

RNC Shatters Biden’s Claim They Didn’t Have Any Scandals In Obama-Biden Admin (Video)
The Republican National Committee released a new ad that highlights the scandals from the Obama-Biden administration after the former vice president claimed on numerous occasions that the administration had no scandals.
The video highlights these scandals from the Obama regime:
- The administration’s response to the Benghazi attacks.
- Former President Barack Obama being awarded the “lie of the year” for falsely claiming that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”
- The Obama administration’s IRS investigating conservative groups.
- Sent pallets of cash to Iran, which is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.
- Armed Mexican drug cartels with weapons that were used to kill U.S. federal agents.
- Attempted to hide long wait times across the VA health system.
- Funded Solyndra by giving the struggling company, which eventually collapsed, hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded money.
- Tradedfive terrorists for a U.S. soldier who “abandon[ed] his post in Afghanistan.”
If the Obama regime were fully investigated, even close to what Donald Trump has been, they will not only make Whitewater look like stealing candy from babies but will find the worst, most corrupt administration ever!

Minnesota Democrat Governor Tim Walz: Restaurants Can Have 50 People, Churches Only 10
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz announced that while restaurants will be able to host up to 50 customers in their outdoor seating areas, churches will remain restricted to serving just 10 congregants at a time, whether indoors or outdoors. The only remaining concession to churches is that they’re allowed to hold “drive-up” services, in which worshippers must remain in their cars and tune in to the message.
Ironically, restaurants require touching a lot of common objects, where churchgoers can literally go into service and out without touching anything. Plus the fact churches are about 50x the size of a restaurant dining area.
On Wednesday, Minnesota’s Democratic governor unveiled the state’s new timeline for its “Stay Safe” plan, which includes the mandate that places of worship not be allowed to hold any types of services for more than 10 people — whether inside or outside — while simultaneously allowing restaurants to serve up to 50 customers at a time in outdoor dining areas.
The pandemic has resulted not only in a devastating economic crisis in the United States but a massive civil rights debate amid state and local mandates effectively prohibiting American citizens from exercising their constitutional rights, including First Amendment-protected rights of “the free exercise” of religion and the right to “peaceably to assemble” and “petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Several state and local mandates prohibiting “non-essential” entities from operating have ended up including churches, and some officials have even cracked down on churches providing safely socially distanced “drive-up” services.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) heaped fuel on the religious freedom fire on Wednesday in his unveiling of the state’s “Stay Safe” plan beginning June 1. More
Do we still have people insisting there is no overreach occurring? Or it’s just a few states? Seems to be a common theme to limit churches with zero rationales. Masks can’t be worn while eating, so how does this add up?
Trump Will Sign Executive Order Rescinding And Waiving Regulations To Aid Economic Recovery
President Donald Trump will sign an executive order rescinding and waiving regulations in an attempt to aid our economic recovery.
White House officials say this new order will direct government agencies to identify any regulations that can be briefly waived to “promote job creation and growth.” A secondary action directs agencies to determine which of the 600 regulations currently halted under the national emergency should be permanently rescinded.
— Nevada RLC (@NevadaRLC) May 19, 2020
President Donald Trump will sign an executive order Tuesday aimed at fast-tracking economic recovery by rescinding or waving regulations he says are inhibiting rapid job growth.
Senior Trump administration officials told the Daily Caller that the Regulatory Relief to Support Economic Recovery Executive Order “is the first time in living memory that a president has responded to a national crisis by deregulating instead of grabbing more power.”
The order would mimic action the administration took during the early days of the pandemic to expand health care services, specifically telehealth options, and hopes to provide economic relief to the millions of Americans who lost jobs due to state stay-at-home orders.
The latest unemployment figures from the Department of Labor show that that more than 36 million Americans have filed jobless claims since the coronavirus pandemic began. Predictions from Goldman Sachs suggest that total U.S. unemployment could peak at 25% in 2020 without serious government intervention. Furthermore, the National Bureau of Economic Research recently warned that 42% of all coronavirus-related job loss could be permanent. More

Democrats Admit They are Warming Up Another Attempt to Impeach Donald Trump
House Democrats have asked the U.S. Supreme Court for materials so that they can start yet another impeachment trial against Donald Trump.
House Democrats have asked the U.S. Supreme Court for grand jury materials redacted by Robert Mueller so that they can start yet another impeachment trial against Donald Trump.
That’s right, despite having absolutely no proof whatever, House Democrats are once again looking for angles to start impeaching Trump all over again.
Democrat attack dog attorney Douglas Letter, who has been the Democrat’s top advisor for impeachment, filed a 33-page motion on Monday to have the court release documents from special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Mr. Letter’s filing demands access to the documents because the House Judiciary Committee’s “impeachment investigation related to obstruction of justice pertaining to the Russia investigation is ongoing.”
“The Mueller Report grand-jury material remains central to the Committee’s ongoing inquiry into the President’s conduct,” Letter wrote on behalf of the Democrats. “If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the Articles adopted by the House, the Committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment.”
Per the Washington Examiner:
Mueller’s 448-page report, released in April 2019, said the Russians interfered in 2016 in a “sweeping and systematic fashion” but “did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government.” The special counsel also laid out 10 possible instances of Trump obstructing justice but did not reach a conclusion. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded Trump had not obstructed justice.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected the Justice Department’s request to stay its ruling affirming a lower court order that it hand over the Mueller grand jury information last month. The appeals court ruled in a 2-1 vote in March to uphold U.S. District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell’s October 2019 ruling that House investigators should be given access.
Now, the DOJ is moving to have the Supreme Court take up the case.
The Democrats are on a desperate fishing trip for any information they can use re-start their illicit impeachment trials all over again.

Schumer Says Trump Is “Picking On” China
Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says that President Donald Trump is “picking on” China by confronting them on their handling of the coronavirus pandemic during an interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.
— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) May 15, 2020
Chuck Schumer is one for making up allegations against President Donald Trump that have no basis in reality. In this video, he claims Trump is “picking on China” to distract from his alleged failures. Democrats are trying to make the president look bad all why they spout Chinese Communist Party propaganda.
Democrats have been the enemy of the American worker ever since Jimmy Carter. Since Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to support China so badly, they should be ripped out of office and face charges of treason.
