Patricia Richie-Folks: The Underwhelming Candidate

By Greg L | 4 November 2017 | Manassas City | 6 Comments

Here is Patricia’s resume, the one she provided to the Manassas City Council in consideration for her first attempt to gain political power.

Highlights:

2011-2015: Secretary for a small magazine that went out of business
2008-2011: Telemarketer
2007-2008: Temp Office Help
1998-2007: Ran the laundry at a hospital

Based on her experience, would you hire Patricia to be the accountant for your small business?  How about as your treasurer?  Is it any wonder that the treasurer’s office in Manassas is in complete and utter chaos?

Danica Roem: It’s All About Trannies

Danica Roem, picured on left

Every election cycle the strangest, most unqualified and thoroughly unelectable Democrat candidates come out of the woodwork to challenge Delegate Bob Marshall in the 13th District. I’d thought I’d seen just about everything, but then this Danica Roem character shows up. Good Lord, if this is the direction our political culture is lurching, heaven help us.

Pat, In Her Own Words

By Greg L | 3 November 2017 | Manassas City | 3 Comments

We’ve decided to take a bit of a break from the web of deception Patricia (Fill-in-The-Blank) in the years prior to her relocating her flim-flam, here in Manassas. Pat has decided to make her case directly to the voters, as to why they should reelect her, and she remains true to form. In striving for a better-informed electorate, we’ve analyzed her statements made over at Potomac Local, and will dissect these statements, exposing the lies and half-truths contained therein:

Pat Who???

By Greg L | 31 October 2017 | Manassas City | 3 Comments

We’ve uncovered much regarding Patricia Ritchie-Folks (and all the other aliases she’s used over the years), and have started to dive down into what she’s done in the many places she’s lived, but really we’ve only covered her time in Georgia. Looking at it now, it’s as if Sherman’s March to the Sea got intermingled with a caravan of Gypsy fraudsters. Where did the “Pat Show” go next? Tough to say, what with all of those overlapping names and addresses, Paticia Richie-(Pick-a-name here) was using. As best as we can tell, Pat (is it REALLY Pat?) landed in Florida. Perhaps Florida was a chance to get a “fresh start”. She settled in a modest apartment, not far from the beach, near Miami. Who wouldn’t want a little time in the Sun? But, it seems that Pat couldn’t break some of her old habits. You know, like paying her bills. Pat was sued by a company that provides care for the elderly: (more…)

Just Who Is Patricia Richie-Folks?

By Greg L | 26 October 2017 | Manassas City | 4 Comments

What a great question! So many aliases. So many addresses. So much overlap. We are sure that you can understand why it has taken so long to unravel this web, woven by this spider who now holds the city’s check-book in her hands. Undaunted, we entered her parlor of deception not as flies, but as wasps and hornets, looking for possible reasons as to “why” Pat (are we sure it’s Pat?) has gone to such great effort to hide her background. There are as many possibilities as there are names and addresses, but we managed to find that common thread, made of spider-silk, that leads to the center of the web: Money.

Pat (who currently goes by the name Patricia Richie-Folks) likes to talk about her “vast financial experience” that she brings to the office of treasurer. Oh, she does indeed have financial experience, just not the kind that many of us might aspire to have. (more…)

It’s Hard to “Get to Know Pat”

By Greg L | 25 October 2017 | Manassas City | 6 Comments

We all know who Patricia Richie-Folks claims to be. She’s a financial expert with deep connections to the City of Manassas, right?. She’s was a “co-owner” and “payroll manager” of a construction company. The problem is, “Pat” (can we call you Pat?) has presented little in the way of specifics regarding her life, prior to moving into the city. The local press, in an abdication of its traditional role as “seekers of the truth”, has done little except to print Pat’s vague descriptions of her vast experience, leaving it to someone else us to do the actual work normally associated with that arcane practice once known as “journalism.”

Well, we’ve been working.  Someone has to. Using publicly-available information and a high-level of determination, our team of citizen investigators have uncovered much in the way of the enigma that is the recently-elected City of Manassas Treasurer, and don’t think for a moment we’d keep all the juicy bits from you.

Caveat Emptor: Get to Know Patricia Richie-Folks

By Greg L | 24 October 2017 | Manassas City | 4 Comments

Patricia Richie-Folks was elected City Treasurer during a special election last year, which happened to coincide with the Presidential and Congressional elections. Richie-Folks rode a wave of local anti-Trump sentiment and a woefully inept local press to a 2%-margin win over her opponent, Russ Harrison. It should be noted that this was Richie-Folks third attempt at elected office, having twice previously failed to garner enough support to be elected to Manassas City Council.

So why was “three the charm” for Richie-Folks? Why did she win over someone obviously better qualified for the position? Who is Patricia Richie-Folks? What special qualifications did she bring to the office? These are all legitimate questions that need to be answered…and we will answer them. However, the biggest question is, what in Patricia Richie-Folks background might otherwise disqualify her from office, or at least give the informed voter sufficient reason not to pull the lever for this individual of questionable character?

Manassas Tea Party Denounces Arrival of Violent AntiFa Groups

By Greg L | 28 August 2017 | Crime, Manassas City, Prince William County | 1 Comment

The Manassas Tea Party released the following press advisory late Sunday evening: 

Manassas Tea Party Denounces Arrival of Violent AntiFa Groups
Calls on Community to Refrain from Lending Support and Counter-Protesting

The Manassas Tea Party is denouncing a potential influx of AntiFa groups into Prince William County, Manassas City and the Manassas National Battlefield Park over the Labor Day weekend in what is being called “The March to Confront White Supremacy.”

“After the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, citizens of Manassas and Prince William County, peace-loving, tolerant and law-abiding people, are broadly opposed to the potential for similar racial strife and bloodshed in their backyard.” Manassas Tea Party Chairman Dan Arnold said. “Whether it is being stirred up by white supremacists or by AntiFa activists, Manassas residents have no interest in having their community and history used as political pawns in an increasingly dangerous game of ‘Gotcha’”.

AntiFa-affiliated groups and white nationalists have a history of engaging in violence and destruction that is antithetical to the Constitution and the Rule of Law and neither should be welcomed in Manassas. The majority of agitators from these groups typically do not reside in the communities they infiltrate and are often bused in from outside locales. Thus they have to rely on support from local organizations for lodging, food, etc.

Manassas Tea Party is calling on all residents, businesses and religious entities in particular to refrain from lending support to this effort or any counter-protesting efforts which only seek to divide us, damage the historic nature of our community, and encourage violence and destruction. The organization is also calling on local governments and law enforcement to be vigilant in preparing for and acting upon the potential destruction of public property and the outbreak of violence.

There is no credible evidence that has been made public that such groups involved have applied or intend to apply for any permits to stage demonstrations in the City or at Manassas National Battlefield Park, a potential legal violation.

“We believe firmly in the First Amendment right to free speech but also advocate for upholding the rule of law. We’re not a political organization and we don’t take sides.” Arnold said. “But we hope that all citizens and organizations in the Manassas area will speak with one voice that manufactured political violence is not welcome in our town, regardless of ideology.”

The Manassas Tea Party is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization of hundreds of Manassas and greater Manassas area citizens dedicated to preserving constitutional principles of every level of government. Its mission is to inform about the issues of the day, influence friends and neighbors to engage, and inspire those around us with a message of hope.  

No Civil War Weekend, But Death And Destruction Anyways

By Greg L | 27 August 2017 | Crime, Manassas City | No Comments

AntiFa is coming to Manassas next weekend on their way to call for an overthrow of the federal government in DC.  Let’s hope this faction of AntiFa isn’t in the lead.

The End Of The World As We Know It?

By Greg L | 14 July 2017 | Patriotism, Crime | 5 Comments

A lot of folks I know are quite concerned about large-scale civil disturbances after watching events unfold such as happened in DC, Ferguson and Baltimore, along with the re-emergence of violent anarchists such as AntiFa. Commercial property is set ablaze, cars are firebombed, cops get shot and wide swaths of the community are vandalized, looted and burned. When these happen our social media feeds get clobbered with posts displaying in real time the shocking violence perpetrated by rioters who seem rather insane, and ineffective law enforcement responses to this violence which only seems to make the problem worse. The question of how safe our families and communities are, and what we can do to address this threat inevitably rises.

Those aren’t easy question to definitively answer, but it certainly is a lot easier to get close when you consider that large-scale, violent civil disturbances aren’t anything new in this country. We just haven’t had a whole lot of them in most people’s memory, and the earlier ones happened before everyone was carrying around a mobile phone with a camera.

Is Illegal Alien Crime Declining?

By Greg L | 5 July 2017 | Illegal Aliens, Crime | No Comments

Of the 22 murders in Prince William County in 2016, eight of them were at the hands of persons known to be illegal aliens.  The press  also reports that 1 of the 10 persons arrested for rape in the county were illegal aliens as well.  Gee, the press would have you think that crime coming from illegal aliens is becoming less and less of a problem now, wouldn’t you?  Well, that’s what some folks want you to think.

The problem here is that Prince William County lost all visibility over whether an arrestee was an illegal alien back in 2012 when the federal government under the Obama Administration terminated the Section 287(g) program.  Before then, law enforcement officials were able to verify a suspect’s immigration status when they were taken into custody using federal resources under the supervision of an ICE agent.  If the individual was foreign-born and had a record of legal entry, was admitted as a nonresident or resident alien, or naturalized as a citizen, he was known to be a legal alien.  The absence of such a record indicated he was an illegal alien, and that system swept up illegal aliens by the thousands.  It worked very well.

Verizon Pulls The Plug On Their Email Service

By Greg L | 30 June 2017 | Local Economy | 5 Comments

All you folks with a “verizon.net” email address are going to have a decision to make shortly.  Do you pay extra for some unknown third-party email provider to provide you service at some unknown price just so you can continue to advertise the Verizon brand that has now abandoned you?  Or do you sign up with someone else, tie their corporate identity to your own, tell all your friends about your new email address and hope that at some point they don’t do the same thing to you as Verizon just did and start this all over again?

Well, there’s another answer and long ago I charted a course that you’re free to follow.

PWEA Are Nothing But Union Thugs

By Greg L | 23 June 2017 | Schools | 8 Comments

Back in 2009, when facebook was just starting to become “a thing,” a number of concerned parents joined together there to form a “Prince William County Education Reform” group to discuss the county’s math curriculum and coordinate efforts to advocate for reform.  Eventually, the “Math Investigations” curriculum would be replaced and one of the leading proponents of that program on the school board would be defeated by Alyson Satterwhite.  That group has been one of the most long-standing and impactful resources for parents who want to have a voice in how their taxpayer dollars are spent educating their children.

Of course the Prince William Education Association and the Virginia Education Association teacher lobbies felt threatened by this.  These left-leaning lobbies, slavishly devoted to the Democrat party and the principle that elites should dictate what the proletariat is allowed to get, fought bitterly against the parents on PW Education Reform at every turn.  After name calling and public bullying didn’t seem to work, they settled on a different strategy - to embed themselves in these parent resources, try to take them over, and eventually destroy them.  Last night they celebrated what they think is a victory in wiping out this six year experiment in representative democracy.

Danica Roem Campaign Funded By Wisconsin State Tax Revenues

By Greg L | 22 June 2017 | 13th HOD District | 8 Comments

Danica Roem is the 33 year-old “transgender” former reporter who still hasn’t moved out of his parent’s house, but is running for the 13th District House of Delegates seat as a Democrat.  Not too surprisingly he’s getting a lot of his funding for the campaign with out-of-state donors, one of which is Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele who coughed up a remarkable $25,000.

It turns out that this multi-millionaire can easily afford to be this generous with Roem’s campaign given that he hasn’t paid any state taxes in Wisconsin since 2010.

When Roem inevitably starts talking about the rich “paying their fair share” of taxes I hope he can use his donors as a demonstration of the problem.

Chairman Kim Jong-Sawyers Suspends The First Amendment

By Greg L | 20 June 2017 | Schools, PWCDC, Prince William County | 11 Comments

Here’s the story that the leftists supporting Prince William County School Board Chairman desperately do not want you to see on social media, so perhaps it’s time to at least suspend my hiatus from blogging.

Tomorrow night the School Board is going to have a meeting where Democrats are almost certainly going to enshrine special protections for “transgender” staff and students in official school policy.  Given that in the past five years there hasn’t been a single incident where any “transgender” persons has reported any problems, the result of this policy will be to arm activists with a cudgel to beat down anyone who even expresses discomfort when they’re forced to share private areas with people of the opposite sex.  It’s a tremendously effective way to enforce groupthink, as the purpose of policy is to define behavior deserving of punishment, not to enable anyone to do anything.

Liberals Double-Down On Insanity

By Greg L | 4 January 2017 | 13th HOD District | 6 Comments

If you were a Democrat not suffering from a mental disability, the announcement of your candidate running against Bob Marshall probably wouldn’t be headlined “Transgender journalist challenges Bob Marshall for 13th House seat.”  No, I’m not making this up.

The mainstream media’s approval rate is a mere 32% according to Gallup, so 68% of the electorate already thinks journalists are inherently untrustworthy.  It’s all downhill from there.

Roem joins Mansimran Kahlon, an avid Bernie Sanders supporter, in the race for the Democratic nomination who apparently thinks the purpose of the First Amendment of the Constitution is to guarantee “equality.”

Mark Wolfe Is Bankrupt

By Greg L | 19 October 2016 | Manassas City | 46 Comments

I’d been under the impression that if you’re able to funnel public money to your private business because you’re voting on those specific municipal appropriations, going broke would be a near impossibility.  It’s not as if government is running out of money any time soon, right?  Well, Mark Wolfe has apparently accomplished the impossible after filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy earlier this month while at the same time campaigning about what a responsible steward he is with the money you are forced to give government.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

No mention has been made so far about his firing of Patricia Richie-Folks as treasurer of the Manassas Ballet (at the same time she apparently owns a construction company, curiously enough) for incompetence.  Word is that Richie-Folks couldn’t manage to execute a T-shirt sale without basic math errors, requiring the Manassas Ballet to reach back with an additional assessment for $15 items unless they wanted to lose money on their fund raiser.  And yes, this individual is running for City Treasurer.

What a pair.  A person who can’t pay his bills spending your money, and someone who can’t do basic math cutting the checks.  That’s your Democrat ticket in Manassas.

Hang on for a data dump of some court filings.  I bet they’ll be real interesting.

Mark Wolfe Picks Another Winner With Whatever-Her-Name-Is

By Greg L | 11 September 2016 | Manassas City | 26 Comments

Since most of you are already sick of hearing about the competing dumpster fires of the presidential candidates, here’s something a little closer to home, and certainly a lot more interesting to consider.  When you think about the person who will be controlling the checkbook for the City of Manassas for the next four years, the following chart might be of some help as you consider the alternatives:

So it turns out that Patricia Richie-Folks is even more of an awful candidate than anyone initially thought.  In case you might want a high qualify PDF copy of this to print out and share with your friends, here’s a handy link.

Democrats Raise Money At Event Named After Genocidal Racist

By Greg L | 7 April 2016 | PWCDC, Prince William County | 10 Comments

Reward for whipping escaped slave

While Prince William County Democrats feel it is beyond abhorrent to have a school named after a Virginia Governor who at one time was part of the “massive resistance movement” it doesn’t seem to trouble them at all to raise money for the local party apparatus using the name of a slaveholder who was responsible for atrocities against minorities.  Kinda makes you wonder what the real agenda at work here is, doesn’t it?
