Virginia Got To Love 💕 Her

Submitted by ub on Sat, 02/09/2019 - 09:44

They say Virginia is for lovers, but the Commonwealth is developing into a state of political chaos. Poll: Northam has majority African American support amid blackface scandal and Lt. Governor is denying sexual assault allegations.

Meanwhile, there is one Virginia I am sending my love 😍 to as we approach Valentines and also prepare to celebrate her birthday.

90+-year-old Ginger or Ginny as I like to call her may no longer be a dear neighbor, but she has not been forgotten by #MusselSuckers and #ClamDiggers alike, who will continue to admire Virginia albeit from a distance.

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post, published an essay on Medium, in which he described an alleged attempt by National Enquirer parent company AMI to blackmail him.

It appears from Bezos' affair with former television host Lauren Sanchez, but it might also include Donald Trump and Saudi Arabia officials. That means this is a developing story.

The Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is China's most important holiday. Chinese New Year 2019 fell on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, beginning a year of the Pig. In China, the public holiday will be observed between February 4–10, 2019.

It's Lunar New Year, day 1 of China’s lunar calendar, which is within a day of the second new moon before the Spring Equinox moon phase. It's oddly called Spring Festival, with it being in winter for most of China, but that's because everyone looks forward to Spring.

The Democrats say POTUS and his Republican colleagues have been running rampant for a couple of years causing American blood, sweat and tears, so now it's time to exercise oversight which has caused widespread @GOP fears.

Since President Trump was sworn into office, his party has turned its back on their oversight responsibilities protect him. Congressional Democrats are working for #WeThePeople to help bring accountability back to Washington, DC.

Everyone knows the Republican mascot is an elephant, but can anyone decipher what the head of that party is saying, or thinking and does @realdonaldtrump have a leg to stand on? Things may not be as they initially appear and perhaps even looking grim.

UNITY Seriously?

Submitted by ub on Tue, 02/05/2019 - 06:19

POTUS is expected to call for unity in his attempt at reset after two years of partisanship deep divide and personal attacks. #SOTU will come with a large serving of partisan divide which could lead to another government shutdown or to an emergency declaration over the #Mexico border, but what about the #Canada northern border? Politically wounded from his federal shutdown, #Trump may face an uphill battle with his agenda.

Will Americans, or the rest of the world buy this White House attempt at turning a new leaf? We’ll have to wait and see, Mr. T.

Something really strange is happening in The Divided States of America and no State of The Union is going to solve it. The deep divide between liberals and conservatives is widening more than ever,

As far as foreign policy is concerned, take note that over the past years, our so-called #USA leadership has managed to pick fights with friends and foes alike and it is beginning to catch up. A nuclear arms race is suicidal and brings with it the threat of human extinction, not to mention our attack on the environment.

On the eve of the Super Bow, the possibility of a devastating Nuclear war is getting surprisingly little attention when one considers that there are enough weapons of mass destruction to end human civilization in just a matter of hours.

This is a global game of chicken over the INF nuclear treaty after Trump decision to lay the groundwork for a nuclear arms race and a dangerous new era of out of control brinkmanship.

After #USA announced a withdrawal from the nuclear deal with #Russia, Putin pulls #Russia out of US nuclear treaty putting the world at risk of World War 3

President Trump doesn't have the best record on telling the truth, and dismissing our intelligence community endangers all of US.

CSPAN: "Did you talk to your intelligence chiefs today about the displeasure you had with their…"

POTUS: "I did. They said that they were totally misquoted, and they were totally – it was taken out of context…The said it was fake news."
