It has been almost nine months since President Donald Trump and Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un met in Sentosa, Singapore, and it seems as if North Korea has been completely dismissed as a threat in the interim. Trump and Kim’s summit in 2018 may not have denuclearized the peninsula but it did reduce the probability of war – bigly.

Three weeks ago, it seemed like things could not get worse for the Virginia Democrats. They were attempting to pass a controversial abortion bill, that was facing severe opposition from Conservatives and even a fair amount of Moderates in the Commonwealth. This bill was always a long shot, as it would reduce oversight on second and third-semester abortions and scrap a previous requirement for a 24 hour waiting period before getting an abortion.
