    While the nation has been focused on the Coronavirus crisis, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and his Democrat-controlled legislature, have been hard at work passing new laws.

    Northam has signed numerous bills into law on everything from abortion to gun control. Virginia as we knew it is gone.

    Susan Jones reports at CNS News:

    Virginia Is Reborn As a Leftist Enclave, Following Governor’s Easter Weekend Bill-Signing

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam signed a slew of bills into law on Easter weekend, transitioning the Commonwealth into the liberal bastion that Democrats want it to be.

    On Sunday, Northam signed legislation expanding early voting to 45 days before an election without a stated excuse; repealing the state’s voter ID law; and making Election Day a holiday.

    To maintain the same number of state holidays, lawmakers repealed the Lee-Jackson Day holiday, established over 100 years ago to honor Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

    “Voting is a fundamental right, and these new laws strengthen our democracy by making it easier to cast a ballot, not harder,” Northam said in a news release. “No matter who you are or where you live in Virginia, your voice deserves to be heard. I’m proud to sign these bills into law.”

    Other bills addressed criminal justice:

    The felony larceny threshold is now increased from $500 to $1,000.

    Other bills permanently eliminate driver’s license suspensions for unpaid fines, fees, and court costs; raise the age of juvenile transfer to adult court from 14 to 16; and change certain parole conditions.

    And social justice:

    The new laws repeals “racist and discriminatory language from Virginia’s Acts of Assembly,” give localities the ability to remove or alter Confederate monuments in their communities, and begin the process of replacing Virginia’s statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in the United States Capitol.

    “Racial discrimination is rooted in many of the choices we have made about who and what to honor, and in many of the laws that have historically governed this Commonwealth,” said Governor Northam.

    Here are the details on gun control, via Northam’s website:

    Governor Northam Signs Historic Gun Safety Legislation into Law

    Governor Ralph Northam today announced he has signed several landmark gun violence prevention measures into law, including legislation to enact an Extreme Risk Protective Order, require background checks on all gun sales, mandate reporting of lost and stolen firearms, prevent children from accessing firearms, and reinstate Virginia’s successful one-handgun-a-month policy.

    “We lose too many Virginians to gun violence, and it is past time we took bold, meaningful action to make our communities safer,” said Governor Northam. “I was proud to work with legislators and advocates on these measures, and I am proud to sign them into law. These commonsense laws will save lives.”

    Tucker Carlson talked about this on his show last night. He now refers to Northam as Governor Klanrobes Blackface:

    Now we know why the media didn’t drive Northam from office over his racial controversy. They knew that with full control of Virginia, Democrats would take full advantage, and boy did they.

    As a Virginia resident, I’ve been saying this for a long time. The Republicans have only had a tenuous hold on the legislature for a long time and as more and more imported liberals from DC and points north have moved here to escape the tyranny of their home governments, it hasn’t take long for that to be overturned.

    Combine that with the abject incompetence of the Republican party in Virginia pretty much the entire 25 years I’ve lived here and it’s a recipe for disaster.

    It’s just typical Republican strategy: pander to the people who are never, ever going to vote for you and ignore (or actively undermine) your base and expect them to vote for you anyway…and then wonder why you keep losing elections.

    At any rate, as soon as the Dems had control of both the legislature and governor’s office, the writing was on the wall.

    The are going to do everything in their power to ensure they never lose another election…hence the fraudulent vote enablement act (otherwise known as repealing voter ID). Just wait until they get a chance to gerrymander the voting districts. That’ll be fun.

    Virginia’s toast. It’s been coming for a long time, but the cancer is terminal now. Give it a decade (maybe less) for the state to go completely in the toilet and it will be added to the long list of places liberals flee from to infest other states…only to merrily engage in turning their new home into a mirror of the hell-hole from which they fled – coming soon to a state near you.

    It’s times like these that I’m glad I’m old and am not going to live long enough to see the total collapse of the America I grew up in.

    Do not redistribute the federal bureaucracy to still decent states–butto places like Guam, American Samoa, etc. Or even better simply fire 10 percent a year.

      I kind of thought that, as a country, we were trying to work toward the goal of genociding FEWER native populations as time goes on. You should rethink this.

    We’ve heard so often about the vigilance necessary to keep freedom. A lot of that hints at maintaining a balance against government through an armed populace. It should also get an increased emphasis for vigilance at the ballot box, too.

    We know how few people are interested in even bothering to vote, much less being informed on the issues / candidates. This should be a wake-up call across the rest of Virginia, and the whole nation, that voting is not just a civil right…it is a civic duty. If the less urban areas of this and every State could match and exceed the voter turnout that the activist Left does, then we wouldn’t need all these movements to split States into multiple parts.

    I agree with most of you and if the Republicans will get off their Asses and come and talk to people so that we the people can Vote for them due to the DEMOCRATS are have people out polling all the time for them that’s our problem in Virginia and it seems Republicans do not care about Rural Areas in Virginia and the DEMOCRATS for sure do not give a shit about Virginia at all!!!!!
