Now that the DC Examiner has run the story, it’s time to start talking about the effects of Prince William County’s crackdown on illegal aliens on the county’s budget.
When Prince William County was considering the Rule of Law resolution, one of the arguments supporting it’s passage was that the county pays an enormous amount of […]
Once again, a place for all of those off-topic discussions…
The Senate Courts of Justice Committee killed Senator Colgan’s SB 90 which would have required that Virginia employers use the federal E-Verify system today on a 13-2 vote. This one wasn’t even close, with all Republicans other than Obenshain and Cuccinelli voting to “pass by indefinitely”, or “kill” this important legislative reform. If […]
The Special Subcommittee on Immigration of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee killed SB 433 which would have enrolled Virginia in the Section 287(g) Program. This program ensures that illegal aliens who are convicted of serious felonies such as rape, murder and felony assault are deported after they have served their sentence rather than be […]
It didn’t affect me, but I heard that a transformer blew and left a huge swath of Sudley Road and surrounding areas without power tonight. It sure managed to keep the public safety people busy, as I heard sirens for hours.
Anyone have the scoop on what happened?
At the request of Delegate David Poisson (D-Loudon), the opening prayer of the Virginia House of Delegates was offered today by Imam Mohamed Magid. Magid is the Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which has somewhat of a troubling history in the United States, prompting U.S. Senators Max Baucus and Charles […]

Senator Colgan’s SB 90 moved to the Senate Courts of Justice Special Subcommittee on Immigration today where it faces an uphill battle to survive given that Dick Saslaw heads this subcomittee. SB 90 would to require that all Virginia employers participate in the federal E-Verify program, making it tremendously more difficult for illegal aliens […]
Guest Post By “Raging Redneck”:
If you live in Prince William County and send your child to public school, the answer is unfortunately, yes. Believe it or not, PWCS has implemented the controversial math program called TERC Investigations in Number, Data and Space, a radical program that has been widely criticized and shown to be […]
The Episcopal Diocese in Virginia — yes, the one that is chasing away some of it’s most vibrant and successful congregations as it has rushed to throw away any relationship between the Bible and church doctrine — has decided that the most important thing they could do to save souls and inspire others to faith […]
Although the source here has absolutely no credibility whatsoever, being little more than a psychopath nutball himself, Manes Pierre’s recent letter to the editor seems to suggest that PWCDC Committee Chairman Peter Frisbie has been conducting character assassinations of competing interests in the Democratic Party using blogs. It would be interesting to see if there’s […]
From the way some of the comment threads have turned, it looks like it’s time for another open thread.
Senator Colgan’s SB 90, which would require that Virginia employers screen potential hires using the federal E-Verify Program, is on Monday’s agenda for the Senate Courts of Justice Committee. This bill would level the playing field and help ensure that employers who are compliant with federal labor laws aren’t unfairly disadvantaged when competing against companies […]
Jonathan Way, Mark Wolfe and Steve Smith received the Republican nomination for Manassas City Council in a well-run and smoothly operated convention this morning that again demonstrates the continuing effectiveness of the Manassas City GOP in conducting conventions. Other party units could learn a lot from the Manassas GOP, which brought a record 376 delegates […]

Of the 341 gang members arrested by ICE in the state between February 2005 and September 2007, almost […]
After seeing years of neglect, residents of the Woodbridge Magisterial District are now getting a response from Supervisor Frank Principi to their complaints about the out-of-control day laborer problem along the Route One corridor in Woodbridge. Principi is publicly requesting the Prince William Police Department actually do something as novel as enforcing the law, […]
Sorry about that folks, a really nice story which should have been embargoed that went up a few minutes ago had to pulled down until it gets released by it’s source. My apologies to the DC Examiner, which is going to have one heck of a story coming out soon about the effects of the […]
House Democratic Caucus leader Brian Moran made a big push yesterday to provide more funding for a task force that tries to root out sexual predators. It’s a good idea worthy of support, although if Delegate Moran was actually committed to protecting Virginia’s children from sexual predators he wouldn’t be so determined in his opposition […]
Saturday the Manassas GOP will select their candidates for City Councilman and Mayor in a convention that has signed up about 600 delegates, which is a rather large turnout. With so many critical issues facing the City, it’s no surprise that interest in this convention is running really high. To help delegates sort out the […]
