BVBL’s Top Ten Stories Of 2007

By Greg L | 31 December 2007 | Blogs | 18 Comments

2007 was a quite a year on BVBL, with stories of scandals, lawsuit threats, historic legislative efforts to combat the illegal alien problem, the Rack n’ Roll scandal in Manassas Park, and more. Here are the stories that readers found most interesting this year, based on the number of times that readers requested a post.

#1 Once More Into The Breach - UPDATED (6168 views)

Manassas Park didn’t particularly care for BVBL’s coverage of their unlawful harassment of Rack n’ Roll owner David Ruttenberg, and got a Virginia legal powerhouse to send a cease & desist letter threatening litigation. Our answer here was to publish the letter, which got picked up by Instapundit and became the single most widely read BVBL post of 2007. So much for the idea that threats make bloggers shut up…

#2 It’s Show Time! (5720 views)

Prince William County had it’s third and final vote concerning the Rule of Law Resolution in a historic 13 hour board meeting which ended with a unanimous vote in favor of restricting county benefits to illegal aliens. BVBL readers contributed significantly to this victory by pressuring their elected officials to support this effort, and helped turn the tide against the illegal alien lobby which had been trying to quietly turn Prince William County into a sanctuary jurisdiction prior to this effort.

#3 The Aftermath (4094 views)

While I was away on vacation the Washington Post decided to do a story on yours truly, and it ended up on the front page of the Sunday edition which came as quite a surprise to me. That must have been the case with readers as well, as the comment threads exploded on this and the short post I put up before it alerting readers that I might be in the Post somewhere, soon. That ended up being quite an understatement.

#4 I Get Some Press (3936 views)

Here’s another thread on the surprising Washington Post coverage of BVBL this summer.

#5 The Anatomy Of A Setup (3112 views)

BVBL walks readers through a nice little operation where the Joint Narcotics Task Force can’t find enough local drug dealers to drag into the Rack n’ Roll Billiards Club and set up the owner, so they send an informant out to Dumfries to puck them up and bring them to Manassas Park.  Then they can’t find buyers, so police undercover officers act as the buyers.  So here we’ve got police-supplied drug dealers selling drugs to police officers, and this is somehow supposed to demonstrate that the location of this goofy operation is somehow at fault for being a drug market.

#6 A Tale Of Two Establishments (2945 views)

You’d think that Manassas Park would at least try to treat business owners consistently, because there’s this pesky equal treatment of the laws thing they’re supposed to comply with.  Here, readers get introduced to the place that Manassas Park wasn’t cracking down on while at the same time they were fabricating evidence at Rack n’ Roll.  Live lesbian sex shows, motorcycles doing doughnuts on the dance floor, and dealing coke over the bar won’t get your full liquor license pulled, but should anyone flash a boob during Mardi Gras a few doors down, their beer license gets yanked pronto.

#7 Once Upon A Time In DemocratLand… (2810 views)

Democrat fair-haired boy and perennial loser James Walkinshaw writes a letter to the Gainesville Times that clearly demonstrates the delusional state of some within the PWCDC.  This thread was hugely popular with the many political insiders which find Walkinshaw to be pretty laughable and can’t figure out why candidates bother with this guy.  Walkinshaw’s rantings makes this far too easy…

#8 Satan Joins The Manassas Christmas Parade (2756 views)

Here’s some multi-culturalism for you — how about having Satan join the Manassas City Christmas Parade, just because there’s some obscure cultural thing going on somewhere in the world that happens to honor Satan sometime between the end of summer and the beginning of spring?  Better yet, after we shock everyone in attendance, we can give the little outrage a prize!  Sometimes, the nutballs briefly wrest control over the City of Manassas, and when they do it sure is going to be a stunner.

#9 Webb Apologists Hit 100 RPM (2747 views)

Jim Webb’s staffer takes Jim Webb’s handgun through the District of Columbia and into a Senate office building where it trips a metal detector.  Jim Webb courageously denies any involvement and hangs this poor slob out to dry, until the Democratic establishment ensures that all charges are dropped about a week later and releases him from jail.   Not long after, a DC Court rules the District’s ban on firearms ownership and possession is unconstitutional, Jim Webb courageously gets saddled with running pro-forma sessions of the Senate during what would otherwise be a recess period, and becomes irrelevant on Capitol Hill.

#10 Rule Of Law Resolution Implementation Passes Unanimously (2713 views)

And yes, when citizens weigh in with their elected officials, they do what the citizens want.  Prince William County followed through with the implementation of the Rule of Law Resolution, beating back a frenzied effort by illegal aliens to try to derail any and all efforts that might be taken to discourage their unlawful presence.

It’s been quite a year, and 2008 promises to be an even better one.  Make sure to visit often, so you don’t miss any of it.

    Lafayette,

    “Bailey’s Crossroads apartment complex on Knollwood Drive.”

    The notorious Culmore ‘hood.

    Stabbings? Must be using sharp pointy guns now.

    WOW my hood of Manassas Park in 4 or 5 of those top threads! Way to go guys! …..not

    I still find it hard to believe that that kind of stuff ACTUALLY went on in this town and the State Police and FBI have refused to do anything about it. It just doesn’t make any sense if this is the case.

    Lafayette,

    Culmore is on the border of Fairfax and Arlington, just off route 7. I live on the Arlington side - sad but true. The border areas between counties seem to become a sort of no-man’s land where each county dumps its unwanted urban blight. Weird zoning and industrial park stuff.

    Culmore, a large WWII era apartment complex is now a sort of low rent slumlord area which is heavily populated by immigrants. Not sure of the whole history, but many central American refugees where settled in this spot in the early ‘80.

    The two main topics that brought it notoriety are the Culmore 7-11 link to 9/11 and MS13.

    Bridget,
    Thank you. I’m like you yesterday. I don’t what I can say that wouldn’t get me banned from bvbl.

    This “no man’s land” exists with all neighboring counties. This is good for criminals, I guess. However, it doesn’t do one thing good for the law abiding citizens.
    I’m sick that a girl age 11 would have to have her mother escort to the bathroom. These parents are doing their children NO FAVORS by have unkowns living with them. I wonder if they share houses with strangers in their countries of origin.
    Anyone know?
    Where’s Social Services in the case of the roach infested house. This unhealthy living conditions for anyone, and certainly for innocent children. I could go on and on, but I will stop for now.

    Laf, my guess is that the health department is not summoned to apartments where tenants have broken the lease terms for occupancy … again, it is a slumlord set up. All manor of illegal activity … unlicenced babysitting, food peddling, prostitution etc… police playing cat and mouse with gangs … I would bet Fairfax county long ago struck a deal with the landlord regarding this hands-off set up.

    Completely off-topic here, but I need some help. I’ve recently
    been reading letters in the JM regarding Gary Jacobsen’s
    opinion pieces and most of the letters are rather negative, so
    this morning I decided to give Jacobsen a chance. Obviously,
    he is very pro-illegal and writes of poor old Juan Valdez and
    his arduous journey from his pathetic life in Central America,
    etc. etc. When, at the end of the article, I read what “Juan”
    had penned on a piece of paper provided by a police officer,
    these words, “wet-foot, dry-foot”, all I could say was “WHAT
    THE HELL??”
    Please, can one of my BB’s (Blog Buddies) help me out here?
    What does this mean? I’ve never heard the expression, “wet-
    foot, dry-foot” before, so somebody please enlighten me.

    The wet foot/dry foot policy is a prime example of why we should stop politicizing our asylum and refuge policies - asylum should not be granted based on the foreign policy of the moment - on the approval or disapproval of the government of the applicants homeland.

    Bridget beat me to the punch on wet foot dry foot. And I agree with her position that the politicization of our asylum and refugee policies only adds to the chaos if the immigration system as it is implemented today.

    Gone Fishing,

    Any time, any time. Glad to help. Hey, fact is, l learn and gain far more than I give on this site.

    Happy New Year to All! Off to a great start, IMHO.

    Better luck next time, Rob!! LOL. BTW, “my” position is not mine at all, but the one garnered from the Federation for American Immigration Reform ages ago.

    Who was the immigration attorney that spoke to the hijackers in Arlington? Is there any info on that?

    Anonymous,

    That’s a good question … I have never come across an article or document that named the immigration attorney. I don’t believe he was ever convicted, but I had read that he was disbarred.
