Gov Ralph Northam (D-VA) Demonstrates that the Lord Works in Mysterious Ways

One week ago Kathy Tran’s (D-​VA) abor­tion till the day of birth bill was came out of Vir­ginia:

Gilbert: Where it’s obvi­ous a woman is about to give birth, that she has phys­i­cal signs that she is about to give birth. Would that be a point at which she could still request an abor­tion if she was so cer­ti­fied? She’s dilating.

Tran: Mr. Chair­man, that would be a deci­sion that the doc­tor, the physi­cian, and the woman would make at that point.

Gilbert: I under­stand that. I’m ask­ing if your bill allows that.

Tran: My bill would allow that, yes.

The next day Gov­er­nor Northam (D-​VA) on the radio, defend­ing the bill and expand­ing the idea of abor­tion to the 4th trimester, that is after birth.



This was a big deal to folks like me but the MSM decided it was not a national story, and all over cap­i­tal hill folks from Nancy Pel­soi to a dozen sen­a­tors never heard of it

For a jour­nal­ist who con­sid­ers his first duty to a polit­i­cal cause, though? Per­fectly respon­si­ble gate­keep­ing. The ques­tion to be asked about Rodgers’s tweet above isn’t really why Democ­rats in Con­gress won’t com­ment on Northam, it’s why only a reporter from a right-​wing site like the Daily Caller seems to have tried track­ing down Democ­rats for com­ment and found it remark­able that so many some­how missed yesterday’s news. If a Repub­li­can gov­er­nor was push­ing leg­is­la­tion as morally abhor­rent as Northam or Andrew Cuomo in New York, Cruz, Rubio, and Sasse couldn’t turn a cor­ner in the Capi­tol with­out run­ning into a jour­nal­ist eager to pin them down on it.

Which is to say, our media is very deep in the tank on this issue, even more so than they are for most left-​wing causes. We’re all long used to it. But occa­sion­ally the depth still man­ages to shock.

And it looked like the MSM was going to mem­ory hole this 4th trimester abor­tion debate.

Then came the photos

Now sud­denly it became impos­si­ble for the left to pre­tend that Gov Northam (D-​VA) didn’t exist. He was front page news every­where and even more sud­denly his com­ments about abor­tion, even after birth, were being broad­cast. Even the pres­i­dent men­tioned it

Now just a few min­utes ago I just say Jake Tap­per, play­ing the radio clip on SOTU ques­tion­ing Terry McAu­li­ffe on Gov Northam (D-​VA) who was his Lt Gov and bring­ing up this abor­tion bill and McAu­li­ffe pub­licly denounc­ing it. and shortly after­wards had one of his guests go on about this bill. That didn’t go over well for the NARAL lady on the panel who denounced him and denied Gov Northam (D-​VA) said what Tap­per had just shown.

None of this is pos­si­ble with­out the year­book pho­tos, which some­how all the opp research missed dur­ing the elec­tion but came out just in time to illus­trate just how far the mur­der of chil­dren is now being pushed in America.

As it says in the title of this post. The Lord works in mys­te­ri­ous ways.

For a journalist who considers his first duty to a political cause, though? Perfectly responsible gatekeeping. The question to be asked about Rodgers’s tweet above isn’t really why Democrats in Congress won’t comment on Northam, it’s why only a reporter from a right-wing site like the Daily Caller seems to have tried tracking down Democrats for comment and found it remarkable that so many somehow missed yesterday’s news. If a Republican governor was pushing legislation as morally abhorrent as Northam or Andrew Cuomo in New York, Cruz, Rubio, and Sasse couldn’t turn a corner in the Capitol without running into a journalist eager to pin them down on it.

Which is to say, our media is very deep in the tank on this issue, even more so than they are for most left-wing causes. We’re all long used to it. But occasionally the depth still manages to shock.

Now suddenly it became impossible for the left to pretend that Gov Northam (D-VA) didn’t exist. He was front page news everywhere and even more suddenly his comments about abortion, even after birth, were being broadcast. Even the president mentioned it

Now just a few minutes ago I just say Jake Tapper, playing the radio clip on SOTU questioning Terry McAuliffe on Gov Northam (D-VA) who was his Lt Gov and bringing up this abortion bill and McAuliffe publicly denouncing it. and shortly afterwards had one of his guests go on about this bill. That didn’t go over well for the NARAL lady on the panel who denounced him and denied Gov Northam (D-VA) said what Tapper had just shown.

None of this is possible without the yearbook photos, which somehow all the opp research missed during the election but came out just in time to illustrate just how far the murder of children is now being pushed in America.

As it says in the title of this post. The Lord works in mysterious ways.
