Recount Over, Cooch Wins Again!

20 December 2007 | Fairfax County | 8 Comments

Apparently the recount went forward, and the margin of victory for Senator Ken Cuccinelli managed to improve a bit thanks to a transcription error identified by the Chairman of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee. After a close election, a canvas, and then a recount, Ken is now the undisputed victor in the November election, […]

School Board Violates Open Government Rules

20 December 2007 | Manassas City | 6 Comments

So when is a meeting not a meeting? According to Manassas School Superintendent Gail Pope, it’s not a meeting when the meeting would violate Virginia laws regarding public notice. In a rare occurrence of actual journalism, the Manassas Journal-Messenger managed to fully cover a story instead of just doing a drive-by of who […]

Board Member Enters The Twilight Zone

19 December 2007 | Humor & Satire, Prince William County | 43 Comments

Welcome to a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind, a place of things and ideas between the pit of Man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge.
Meet Martin Nohe, age forty-one thirty-seven. Occupation: retailer, business owner. This is not just a Tuesday drive for Martin Nohe. He perhaps doesn’t know it […]

Kaine’s Budget Lacks Honesty

19 December 2007 | Virginia Politics | 2 Comments

Last year the General Assembly decided to take $250 million of the then $600 million budget surplus and set that aside in the General Fund to finance transportation improvements. This year, Governor Kaine has decided to take $180 million of that amount, and instead of using it to fund transportation, use that money to […]

The Budget Bowl Begins

19 December 2007 | Prince William County | 4 Comments

The annual budget game kicked off in full force yesterday at the Prince William Board of County Supervisors as the board wrangled over the guidance they would give to county staff for department budget requests.  In many ways this opening salvo dictates how the entire budgeting process will unfold, as the next phase takes this […]

Bob Marshall Passed By On P&E Committee

19 December 2007 | 13th HOD District, Virginia House | 11 Comments

Speaker Howell, in a payback move to Delegate Bob Marshall’s effort to have a different speaker selected, has chosen Delegate Mark Cole of Stafford to chair the House Privileges and Elections Committee despite Marshall being the most senior member on the committee. Although it’s gotten a few bloggers all atwitter, I can’t imagine these […]

Dem Introduces Great Immigration Bill — More To Come?

18 December 2007 | Illegal Aliens, 51st HOD District, Virginia House | 7 Comments

A reporter asked me today whether changes in party control mean that it’s going to be even harder to get bills though the General Assembly this year that attempt to address the illegal alien problem.  My answer was that it shouldn’t, as many Democrats made a lot of promises during their campaigns that they’re going […]

PWCBOCS Passes On Funding Illegal Alien Crackdown

18 December 2007 | Prince William County | 172 Comments

I’m hearing that the Prince William Board of County Supervisors left off a budget item in their deliberations today — any funding for implementing the rule of law resolution that was passed on July 10th. I seem to recall a number of citizens saying this should receive funding priority, but for some reason this […]

Deeds Gets The Communist Endorsement

18 December 2007 | Virginia Politics | 71 Comments

The mayor of Charlottesville, VA for some strange reason took time out of his busy day to email me and tell me why he is supporting Creigh Deeds for Governor.
“…we’re pleased to have Senator Deeds carrying on [the late Emily Couric’s] progressive ideals in Richmond. He’s always protected a woman’s right to choose, and has […]

Desperate Lies By The Illegal Alien Lobby

18 December 2007 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 67 Comments

Claire Gastanaga is a lobbyist for the Virginia Coalition of Latino Organizations who lives in Virginia Beach, and although I just about never agree with her, it’s been my experience that she highly values her professional reputation and makes every effort to at least present facts fairly.  On occasion I have found myself educated on […]

Parrish Officially Launches Mayoral Campaign

17 December 2007 | Manassas City | 10 Comments

UPDATE: ANDY HARROVER ANNOUNCES HE WILL NOT RUN FOR MAYOR.
It’s official: Hal Parrish will be running for Mayor of Manassas. Hopefully Andy Harrover will announce soon and give conservatives a positive reason to participate in the Republican nomination for mayor. Hal is a decent guy, but has hardly been a fiscal […]

Save The Old Dominion

17 December 2007 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 68 Comments

Today’s edition of the Potomac News tells readers about the formation of Save The Old Dominion, an umbrella organization for local groups combating the effects related to the unlawful presence of illegal aliens in our communities. Virtually all of the grass-roots organizations at the local level that are active in Virginia have chosen to […]

Leslie The Loser

17 December 2007 | Fairfax County, US Congress | 11 Comments

Mason Conservative has an interesting write-up on “Leslie Byrne The Loser” who is running for the Democratic nomination for the 11th Congressional District. I was aware that her win-loss record as a candidate wasn’t all that hot, and she frequently has shown her devotion to causes that would be, well, communist, but this tidbit […]

Bob Marshall on WTOP

17 December 2007 | Virginia Politics, US Senate | 96 Comments

Delegate Bob Marshall appeared on the first segment of the Mark Plotkin show on WTOP and just fell short of announcing that he would run for the Republican nomination for United States Senate.  It’s an interesting listen, even if Dick Saslaw called in, which I found distracting.
Anyone who underestimates Bob Marshall clearly does so at […]

Mukit Hossain Is Coming To Town

16 December 2007 | Loudoun County, Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 25 Comments

Today’s edition of the Washington Post has an interesting article about how growth and development issues upstaged immigration as an issue and lead the the defeat of a number of candidates who spoke frequently about the need to crack down on illegal aliens in Loudoun County. Their analysis is pretty solid, and points out […]

What Tolerating Lawlessness Gets You

16 December 2007 | Crime | 167 Comments

Here’s an interesting anecdote. I have no idea how common this might be, but stuff like this never helps to relieve widely-held concerns that the behavior of some of our (most likely) uninvited guests in this country may be counterproductive to good order in our society:

MJM: Residential Overcrowding Is Nothing But Our Imagination

16 December 2007 | Prince William County | 39 Comments

The Manassas Urinal-Massager, using the suspect statistics provided by Michelle Casciato of the Prince William Neighborhood Services Division, has come to the conclusion that there really isn’t a residential overcrowding problem in Prince William County, and all the concerns expressed by citizens regarding this problem are nothing but figments of our imagination. Since the […]

Davis Is Not Running

16 December 2007 | Virginia Politics, US Congress | 7 Comments

Evidence continues to mount that Tom Davis will not seek re-election in the 11th Congressional District in Virginia, with new reports that senior staffers are leaving and district offices are shutting down.  With Gerry Connolly and Leslie Byrne expected to run for the Democratic nomination, so far there’s been scant mention of what Republicans might […]

Lou Dobbs: Gov. Kaine “A Complete Cop-Out”

15 December 2007 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 27 Comments

Tonight’s broadcast of Lou Dobbs Tonight included a segment on Governor Kaine’s steadfast refusal to enroll the Commonwealth in the Section 287(g) Program, and the show body-slammed Kaine for his inane position that Virginia should not be involved in ensuring that federal immigration law is respected and upheld. While Delegate Dave Albo was interviewed […]
