Fearing a repeat of the deadly violence that engulfed Charlottesville more than two years ago, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam plans to declare a temporary emergency Wednesday banning all weapons, including guns, from Capitol Square ahead of a massive rally planned next week over gun rights. That's according to two state officials who were briefed on the plans but not authorized to speak publicly about them. The governor, a Democrat, plans to announce the plans at a news conference Wednesday afternoon because of credible threats of potential violence and extremism, one official said.

Comments:

A gun-free zone filled with tens of thousands of people. What could go wrong?

He is running scared about next week's Pro-Gun rally in Richmond. When blood is spilled there, he will use this declaration as cover.

This is like punching someone in the face and then you call them an extremist when they punch back.

You can't fix stupid. And the stupidity here isn't the governor or Congress that will pass this insanity. Sure, they are definitely stupid and evil. But it's the voters that actually elected them to office when they said clearly what they were going to do that are the problem!!!!

Antifa too? I doubt it. Antifa is the left's storm troopers and are loved and protected by the left. You can bet Antifa will be there, and they will have clubs, pepper spray, mace and anything else they can think of - and they will be turned loose on the unarmed rally attenders.

Soon to come from Marxist Communist democrats; As the Supreme Court has not ordered Virginia and other states to obey the 2 Amendment to not infringe on the rights of citizens to carry arms, we the elected political leadership are hereby banning all guns in the state of Virginia. Turn them in to government police officers or face years in jail if you are not killed when the state has to come and take them from you.

The CROWN Act – which has been passed in California and New York – gives residents a legal recourse if their hairstyle impacts their employment status, or if they’re denied service because of it. Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro said the CROWN Act “seeks to advance racial equity” by defining Protected Hairstyles.

The jury just rendered its verdict on punitive damages in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case. Daniel McGraw, our reporter in the courtroom, reports that in addition to the $11.2 million compensatory damages awarded last Friday, the jury awarded a total of $22 million. That brings the total damages to $33 million. We will have the breakdown soon. The jury also awarded attorney’s fees, to be determined by the judge. In closing argument, Gibson’s lawyer Lee Plakas argued: “Why is the country watching you. Because the country agrees that what happened to the Gibsons should not happen to anyone, but could happen to everyone.”

Gibson awarded $5.8 million, David Gibson #3 million, Gibson Bros. $2,274,500. Next Tuesday there will be a separate punitive damages which could be a double award (meaning tripling the $11 million to $33 million). According to Dan, Meredith Raimondo was held liable on the libel but not the other counts. We are still sorting out what that means in terms of damages against her.

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that two House chairmen who led President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry will be among the House prosecutors for Trump's Senate trial. They are Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of the Judiciary Committee. Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House last month on charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden as Trump withheld aid from the country. He was also charged with obstructing Congress’ ensuing probe.

You’ve probably never heard of the most economically transformative legislation of the Trump era. Granted, it has not yet passed and it might not pass. If it does, it would affect a large portion of Americans, but hardly all of them, unlike the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. And its potential effects are hotly contested by policy advocates, politicians, and economists. Still, California Senate Bill 50, winding its way through the state legislature again this month, could generate tens of thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars of new investment, reshaping the geography of the biggest state and solving a large chunk of the cost-of-living crisis

She later added that she will kneel anyway, which would force the IOC to enforce its rules or back down. Not one for fine distinctions, Megan understands the world only in relation to herself and, as usual, completely misses the point. The IOC said nothing about silence. They said she couldn't use the Olympic stage to push politics. You can noisily talk about anything else — your girlfriend, the state of soccer,
