The girl in the picture isn’t any more real than the bull. They’re both statues. But she does have a name. It’s Fearless Girl.

The rake has turned. And President Trump’s acquittal was the final indignity on the Democrats’ long march to impeachment. Every step of the way seemed to backfire on the party elite.

The resistance first schemed to rid itself of its tiresome president with the emoluments clause. Next up was the 25th amendment. And then on to the Russian Collusion conspiracy. But still unable to prove the president of the United States was a Russian spy, they followed Joe Biden into the 2020 campaign. Only to step in it in Iowa as Bernie emerged from the meltdown.

The World Health Organization wants to ban Chinese virus exports. So this week it officially designated the coronavirus outbreak a public-health emergency.

But also this week, Boris Johnson gave the official o.k. for the U.K. to import Huawei G5 networking technology.

And that doesn’t sit well with Boris’s best buddy Donald Trump. Last May Trump issued his own national emergency, essentially banning Huawei in America.

Another Chinese Virus?

Secretary of State Pompeo believes China spies through Huawei networks. He’s in London to welcome Brexit but “warned that the Chinese Communist party did not have “a technical back door to Huawei. They have the front door.”

Saudi officials call the allegation absurd.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is defending the state senate’s Red Flag gun law. He was last seen defending late term abortions and apologizing for wearing blackface.

But many Virginians seem to think Northam has his ban impulse backwards. And about 20,000 of them marched in protest of the gun law.

That set off a minor media hysteria about white supremacist gun violence. But the armed marchers behaved and even cleaned up their trash.

Which didn’t stop the senate from passing the bill anyway.
