Subject to a recount, Senator Mark Herring has been elected Attorney General of Virginia and Senator Ralph Northam has been elected as Lieutenant Governor. That these “progressive” warriors will exercise executive and legislative power in Virginia is a sobering thing, but there’s a chance to limit the havoc they’ll be able to wreak by flipping at least one of the two senate seats they’ve vacated to the Republican side. With a Republican majority in the Senate, the opportunity for Ralph Northam to cast a tie-breaking vote diminishes enormously and given Northam’s ardent support of gun control, abortion, growing government and other liberal causes the importance of putting this kind of muzzle on him cannot be overstated.
The likelihood of Brentsville Supervisor Wally Covington getting appointed to a judgeship has had conservatives in Prince William County talking a lot lately, especially after former Planning Commission and Soil and Water Board member Austin Haynes spent a bit of time talking with people about the possibility of running for the spot. Austin is known for subjecting himself to some pretty extreme physical challenges on his birthday as a means of raising money for some worthy county charities as well as being a pretty solid real estate investor and agent in the county. There’s hardly anyone out there who could utter an unkind word about the guy, he’s quite well plugged into the political class, he understands land use, rezoning and planning like nobody’s business and it’s quite likely he’d be pretty adept at raising money.
I am sick of seeing the thirty second propaganda spots running on cable TV that advocate the Outer Beltway, ads that are being financed by YOUR taxpayer dollars. Government using your money to convince you that developers need you to spend money for their benefit is an absolute outrage.
If you want to help support an effort to run ads opposing the use of taxpayer dollars to sway public opinion in order to benefit developers and political insiders, drop me a line at the contact email address listed in the right-hand sidebar of this website. Let’s hit back against this kind of brazen corruption with an effort to have the General Assembly outlaw taxpayer-funded government propaganda during this next session and make sure this never happens again.
UPDATE: The House of Delegates is taking notice and starting to issue press releases condemning this. I expect legislative initiatives will soon follow.
About the only surprise here is that it took so long for the owners to figure out that Old Town was an awful place to put an adult-oriented store.
KK’s is shutting down and the building has been sold. Let’s hope some bright, enterprising soul out there does a better job figuring out what kind of businesses can thrive in a nice space like that than the last tenants.
A civil war sutler/re-enactor’s shop absolutely comes to mind.

Catch the broadcast of Ken Cuccinelli’s final “Get Out The Vote” Rally right here, starting at 8:30PM.
Share this one with everyone you know.
Gee, I wish someone would have presented these arguments to Democrats when we were debating whether to enact TrainWreckCare. Had someone pointed these arguments out to President Obama, that it is unfair to penalize people for not buying mandatory insurance they cannot afford, maybe things would have turned out differently.
Ken held a rally one week out from the election at a packed Victory Office in Bristow, VA along with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Here are his full remarks.
Share this widely. There are a lot of voters out there who know nothing about this election other than what they’ve seen in thirty second television commercials.
Ken Cuccinelli had a great event in Bristow on Monday with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Share this with your friends.
Funny how the supposed “War On Women” Democrats keep harping about is apparently sponsored in part by Democratic Senator Chuck Colgan.
If you’d like to see this running on cable this week, swing by this fundraising page. Every time it runs, a Democrat’s head explodes.
E. W. Jackson is a fearless conservative, and he can use your help in the home stretch to get his message out. Go to his website right now and pitch in what you can.
Polls have been consistently showing this race as being a toss-up and your help can make the difference. Perhaps the best part of a Jackson victory would be that establishment wouldn’t ever be able to claim that we must to nominate more mushy, milquetoast moderates if Republican candidates are ever going to win.
This is about the strangest communication I’ve ever gotten from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Which Democrat did I piss off this time?
Funny, I never thought I was a charity before.
Here you have it, voters of Virginia. The Ralph Northam supporters say that 4 in 10 unplanned pregnancies end in abortions, but that’s “okay” because those dead children are spared from the possibility of suffering anxiety or remorse. You apparently can save people from all sorts of problems in life if you simply exterminate them before they have the opportunity to experience life at all.
Sunday morning’s veterans rally at the World War II memorial became the spark for a peaceful revolt against the tyranny and oppression of the Obama administration, as veterans tore down barriers intended to keep them away from the very memorials that honor their service and dragged them to the White House. They stormed beaches, they walked “point” in the jungles of Southeast Asia, they rolled across the deserts of the middle east and they’re certainly not going to be intimidated by metal barriers with “do not enter” signs.
For those of you who align with the libertarian movement, I commend to you this very insightful piece written by Jaime Radtke. There are a handful of people in Virginia who have been instrumental in promoting that cause in Virginia, and Jaime is not only one of them, but perhaps the person who started that whole movement in Virginia long before anyone heard of an obscure congressman from Texas named Ron Paul. Her message is clear and undeniable: if you stand for liberty in Virginia, you need to stand with Ken Cuccinelli. (more…)
If you’re an environmentalist, or even a conservationist for that matter, the prospect of Terry McAuliffe becoming governor of Virginia should utterly terrify you.
While Terry will return the money he took from a scam artist who stole the identities of terminally ill people, he hasn’t returned the $120,000 he got from the Liberian International Ship and Corporation Registry (LISCR), which acts as an official arm of the Liberian government as it peddles their “flag of convenience” scam against the rest of the world. This entity actively facilitates lax regulations and non-enforcement of basic maritime safety for international shipping so that Liberia can boost their foreign currency income by 25% while major shipping conglomerates save billions of dollars by avoiding any effective oversight whatsoever. Liberia wins, huge shipping companies win, and the rest of the world loses.
Ken Cuccinelli delivered these remarks at the Rally Against The Bi-County Parkway (which I refer to as the Outer Beltway), making it very clear that this November we have a choice for Governor between one person who stands with people, and another whom stands for anyone willing to cut him a check.

With the shutdown of the federal government comes the closure of Manassas Battlefield National Park. You’d expect from this that the doors would be locked at the visitor’s center, that gates might be closed, and that there wouldn’t be any park service employees at the park. On that last point though, you’d be wrong. They on the job, busily making up laws to cite while putting tickets on the cars of anyone they think may be on the grounds and citing laws that don’t exist as justification.
Nothing makes you feel more at home at a public candidate debate than to have an officer of the Prince William Committee of 100 invite you to photograph his balls.
