Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

The Enemy Of Your Enemy Is What Again?

By Greg L | 29 October 2008 | Manassas Park | 7 Comments

A letter to the editor in the now-relabeled MJM by Democratic Chair E. J. Scott demonstrates a terrifically rare inability of a local Democratic party unit to obtain any respect from a local newspaper.  Seeing the MJM, anything but a bastion of conservative thought, dismiss the candidacies of all the Democrats in Manassas Park is pretty amusing.  That’s hardly anything new for the Manassas Democratic Committee, that took over a hundred hours to figure out that condemning a pamphleting by the KKK last year deserved condemnation, and did such a good job of promoting such “quality” candidates as Jeanette Rishell.

It is a little unfortunate to have the MJM overlook Manassas Park Democrats however, because in this election Democrats offer a rare but compelling alternative to the incumbents running as independents in Manassas Park.  Peter Farrell knows well the abuses delivered on the business community by the establishment in the Park when they happen to own, or have interests in property that has fallen within the covetous regard of Mayor Frank Jones to become the next taxpayer-funded development pipe dream.  He knows what crushing tax burdens, deteriorating quality of life, and utterly opaque decision making processes do to the future of a community.  Having heard first-hand the horrror stories of others, this man would be in a good position to start making Manassas Park’s government more responsive and less of a predator to the people who live there.

So now, Ms. Scott, you can say that Mr. Farrell is aligned with me as well, or at least I am aligned with him.

In Manassas Park, it’s pretty hard to imagine alignments between people who despise what has happened there as anything bad, especially when you’re promoting alternatives to the current cabal of conspirators who hold their public meetings behind a door marked “Employees Only” in the city hall, and have records of their meetings inexplicably altered, then “disappeared” from the archives of the public library.  In a rare moment when the convictions of the Democrats and myself align in a jurisdiction, it’s not that surprising that E. J.Scott wouls start throwing rocks at natural allies.  Regardless, their candidates as well as the Republican candidate Brian Leeper are vastly superior choices to serve on the Manassas Park Governing Board.  Heck, replacing the Governing board with the members of the city’s planning commission, with the exception of the members that serve on both bodies (isn’t that strange) would be a vast improvement, even considering that Jeanette Rishell’s husband would then become a Council member.

Yes, it’s that bad.  Folks should remember that this is the Governing Board that decided to harass Artisan Auto Body with almost daily visits by zoning personnel trying to fine the business out of existence in order to obtain the property for an expansion of the Town Center development, which abused the owner of Rack n’ Roll Billards into financial ruin because they wanted his space for a Colonial Downs gambling parlor, which decided to lavish public dollars on the Cougar Elementary expansion making it by far the most expensive per-student facility in Northern Virginia, which maintained residential assessments far above market value during a downturn in order to forestall even larger tax hikes than those which gave the Park 20% higher tax rates than any surrounding jurisdiction.  This is all on top of utterly negligent property code enforcement that enabled overbuilding houses into mini-apartment buildings and an explosion of residential overcrowding.

The Park desperately needs a turn-around.  Farrell, Leeper and Naddoni are the only hopes we have of accomplishing it, regardless of their party affiliation, as it’s clearly evident the incumbents are hopeless.   Whever runs against those incumbents should receive support.

    I like Mr. Brian Leeper’s outlook on taxation and pay-go government. Government should determine what services are required and what are desired and fund accordingly. I live within my means I should have my government do the same - instead of tapping me yearly for a larger share.

    Good luck Mr. Leeper!

    Speaking of enemies:


    Has anybody received a movie about radical Islam called ‘Obsession?’ I did. And boy is it an eye opener. I remember an Obama interview where he tripped up and said ‘my muslim faith, uh I mean my christian faith.’ Freud would be proud of that slip.

    I would love to be able to post a copy of the movie for ALL to see, but I don’t have a clue about how to do that.

No breaks in the chain of hands holding back the illegal alien onslaught. Support Arizona for it is all of us who will be affected.
    From: Roy Beck, President, NumbersUSA

    Most important vote is in Ariz — Symbolic for rest of nation in fight vs. illegal immigration


    If you want to help maintain the momentum of enforcement against illegal immigration, the most important thing you can do is make an immediate credit card donation to the Arizona group fighting Proposition 202 in Arizona.

    Prop. 202 would gut what probably is the nation’s most successful state enforcement against hiring illegal aliens.

    Click here to donate to the NO ON PROP. 202 ad campaign.

    They need the money today. This organization is run by reputable, experienced elected officials and long-time political leaders of the state who have been tireless opponents of illegal immigration. Congressman Tom Tancredo is urging a NO vote and support for this ad campaign.

    If Prop. 202 passes, it will send a signal throughout the country of retreat on enforcement.

    Because it would gut Arizona’s young but very aggressive workplace verification law, we would lose probably our best example of how Attriton Through Enforcement opens up jobs for American workers and drives illegal aliens to move.

    We are in danger of losing this Arizona vote because the greedy business supporters of Prop. 202 have outspent our side at least 10-1 on advertising — and have been allowed to commit fraud in the way the Proposition is named.

    Your donation will help increase the NO ON PROP. 202 ads in these last few days — to warn Arizona voters, most of whom do not know that Prop. 202 would gut workplace enforcement against illegal alien workers in Arizona.

    You see, the pro-illegal businesses have been allowed to put this on the ballot with the name “The Stop Illegal Hiring Act.”

    It appears that all kinds of Arizonans who oppose illegal immigration are prepared to vote for Prop. 202 because they falsely think it would increase enforcement against illegal immigration.

    We need some massive last-minute advertising to stop this calamity.

    To read more on this sad state of affairs, click here.


    Special thanks to Bay Buchanan and her Team America PAC for taking a lot of leadership the last couple of weeks in drumming up help from national groups for a last-minute rescue on this. The ad has been cut and a lot of media time already purshased for the next few days. Please help increase the media saturation.

    None of this money is for NumbersUSA. Your gift goes directly and entirely to the Arizona ad campaign.

    Give here:


    ( and pass it on if you can )

    Maybe if Leeper, Farrell and Naddoni are elected they can uncover all of the coruption going on in our city.

    I am familiar with Leeper thanks to his contributions here on the blog, and he has my vote.

    However, I am not familiar with Farrell or Naddoni. I know about Farrell’s fight with MP over the signage on his property, and that he was denied by the city. But does being a victim of MP politics qualify one for office? Should I elect him because he has a score to settle?

    I’ll consider voting for Naddoni and Farrell, but give me a reason other than the fact they aren’t Treuting, Pope and Jones. I am looking for more than change. Things can change for better or worse. I want something better, I want IMPROVEMENT. What will these guys do better?

    I’m not arguing, I’m just asking to be educated.

    JM, even if you cannot reconcile voting for Naddoni and Farrell (although it would be a good thing to have more than one person on the board who is tired of the MP nonsense), keep in mind that a bullet vote for Brian would be like giving him 3 votes and increase his chances. Whatever you decide to do, I’m sure it will be what you feel is best for the citizens of Manassas Park.
