So I don’t have to keep removing off-topic postings from other threads…
Here is where they go, folks.
I’m hearing that the Virginia Supreme Court has sided with the arguments of Delegate Bob Marshall and determined that granting the Northern Virginia Regional Transportation authority taxation powers is unconstitutional. The power of this authority was granted by the General Assembly during last year’s session with HB 3202. Details aren’t out yet, but […]
In a 7-5 vote, the Senate Courts of Justice Committee killed (passed by indefinitely) HB 623. Although nearly all Democrats voted to PBI this bill, Democrat Roscoe Reynolds voted against passing this by, Republican Senator Quayle abstained from voting, and for some reason Republican Senator Ken Stolle (who opposed this measure last year) […]
WTOP is reporting on the conviction of a Manassas man for helping illegal aliens fraudulently file for “Temporary Protected Status” and fabricating fake identification documents.
Federal prosecutors say Fredy Lopez, who is from El Salvador, was running a company that submitted fraudulent immigration-related documents to help illegal immigrants obtain documentation, such as green cards.
Lopez also […]
We are inspiring a nation. That’s a key take-away from a recent Cal Thomas op-ed that appeared in today’s Orlando Sentinel, which praises Virginia Attorney General Bob McDonnell for his actions to identify and deport over 170 criminal alien sex offenders that either had been released from prison and placed on the Virginia Sex Offender […]
28 February 2008 | Virginia Senate | Comments Off
Tonight’s “Cucinelli Compass” gives what is probably the best account of what happened in the Virginia Senate today that will likely emerge from non-blogger sources. I had the pleasure of witnessing this amazing event while waiting for a Senate Courts of Justice Committee meeting for HB 623 that never happened due to this Senate […]
Because of a huge brawl in the Senate today over the budget, the Senate Courts of Justice Committee did not meet and HB 623 which would enroll Virginia in the federal Section 287(g) Program still hasn’t been heard. There are almost fifty bills still stuck in the Senate Courts of Justice Committee which has scheduled […]
If ever there was a defining statement about a candidate, Shaun Kenney just gave it in a Washington Times article in today’s edition:
“People may come after him and say he is not a team payer, but Bob Marshall never has to apologize for a bad vote to his conservative base,” Mr. Kenney said.
The operative word […]
There’s been a fair amount of talk about a proposed property tax exemption that got voted down today, and Senator Ken Cuccinelli made that the topic of his most recent Cuccinelli Compass. If you want the real story about what this was, and why it should have failed, read on…
I know plenty of Democrats that want to ensure that law enforcement has the tools they need in order to protect us from criminals, just as I know plenty of Democrats who think it’s an outrage that illegal aliens and those who unlawfully hire them are actively protected from facing the consequences of their unlawful […]
Delegate Jackson Miller’s HB 623 is now scheduled to be heard by the Senate Courts of Justice Committee tomorrow at 2:00PM in Senate Room A of the General Assembly Building. If this gets out of committee, it is very likely it will pass the Senate.
Although Jackson has recovered from the flu, which is what prevented […]
Did the propaganda that all Hispanics somehow feel common cause with illegal aliens and are being driven towards liberal Democrats just fall apart today? PWConservative thinks that may be the case with “Hispanic Voters Now The Most Republican Voting Bloc in Virginia?”
Approval Ratings By Race in Virgina:
The Manassas City Council endorsed a very tough agreement with the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement under Section 287(g) with another unanimous vote that I understand will now form the template for all other 287(g) agreements in the area. As is common with these agreements, there’s a long list of crimes which will trigger […]
A Manassas City Schools teacher by the name of Ted Johnson has been arrested for attempted indecent liberties with a child and misdemeanor sexual battery according to NBC4, which got the information from, of all places, the Stafford County Sheriff’s office. It’s just one more example of how Osbourn High School has been spinning out […]
The local illegal alien lobby is definitely getting desperate by the looks of a letter to the editor in the MJM today by local Reconquisata advocate Ruben Pineda. The illegal alien lobby has put away the honey, and is now trying to attract flies with vinegar in trying to bully everyone into promoting amnesty […]
Help Save Manassas will have their next General Membership meeting on Wednesday, February 27th at 8:00PM at the Manassas City Council Chambers in Old Town. With all that’s happening right now, this is your opportunity to get up to speed on simultaneous initiatives happening in Prince William County and Manassas City, as well as the […]
Want to see what’s happening in the Governing Board of Manassas Park? Tough cookies. Unless you’re not interested in anything that’s happened since December, 2007, you’re out of luck.
Government subjected to the people, by the insiders, for the powerful. And just in case you might be interested to see how city officials […]
The residential real estate market is in the tank, but in Manassas Park they’re still granting building permits to transform affordable housing into monstrous boarding houses that just beg to be overcrowded. Here’s a picture taken today on Holden Drive in Manassas Park, where a nice little house that would probably have suited a small […]
This Monday Chief Skinner will present the draft Memorandum of Understanding with Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for the Section 287(g) Program to the Manassas City Council for ratification, and finally begin the implementation of an effort initiated by then-Councilman Jackson Miller in 2006. This agreement is very similar to what the Town of […]
NumbersUSA, with thousands of members in Virginia has joined in the effort to get HB 623 through the Senate Courts of Justice Committee. On top of the efforts currently underway by Save The Old Dominion, this should help put the pressure on our elected officials to make the sensible choice and support the systematic deportation […]
