Twenty-two people, including foreign nationals from Eastern Europe were recently indicted for their part in a massive immigration fraud scheme according to WAVY.com, showing that illegal immigration is not only a phenomenon involving Central America, but alluding to significant national security concerns.  Our broken borders and weak controls on identification documents make possible all sorts […]

Kaine’s Prison Plan Should Be Handcuffed

14 January 2009 | Virginia Politics | 8 Comments

Guest post by Sanford D. Horn
So Virginia Governor Tim Kaine is interested in letting a few “good” prisoners out of the gray bar hotel 90 days early as a cost-cutting measure claiming they are “non-violent offenders who have been model inmates” and were due for a 30 day early dismissal, according to an article […]

Will Schools Be Able to “Opt Out” of Math Investigations?

12 January 2009 | Prince William County | 49 Comments

County School Board Chairman Milt Johns put a fascinating item on the agenda of the School Board’s meeting for January 21st.  It’s a discussion about whether schools should be able to “opt in” to provide “traditional” math instruction to elementary students instead of the controversial TERC “Math Investigations” program.  If you’re a parent that is […]

Needing (A Better) Real ID

12 January 2009 | National Politics, Virginia Politics, Crime | 25 Comments

A recent article in the Washington Post demonstrates the problem that our currently lax methods of ensuring the validity of identification documents makes easily possible.  In this case, a Virginia “Korean mafia” syndicate manufactured fake identification documents to facilitate the presence of illegal aliens that were used to help the syndicate engage in black market […]

Terry McAuliffe Visits Manassas

10 January 2009 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 32 Comments

Former Clinton advisor Terry McAuliffe wants to buy his way into the Governor’s office despite never having held elected office before, and came down to Manassas today in order to make his case to local voters.  My first impression of his candidacy falls pretty flat, based on what his vision for the state seems to […]

The Fiscal Implosion Of Manassas Park

8 January 2009 | Manassas Park | 19 Comments

In order to offset a 38% drop in tax revenues in the next fiscal year, the residential tax rate in Manassas Park would have to rise from $1.24 to $2.00 per $100 of assessed value.  Years of fiscal mismanagement and bad policy in the Park, abetted by indifference from the electorate crashing down on city […]

The Impact Of Corrupt Governments

7 January 2009 | National Politics, Illegal Aliens | 86 Comments

Jim Patrick notes that there’s a lot we can achieve by looking at some of the larger issues that are driving illegal aliens to come here.  Although the left constantly harps on various international policies that the United States pursues as the supposed reason why foreign nationals feel compelled to unlawfully flood across our borders, […]

Hargrove Promotes Term Limits In Virginia

7 January 2009 | Virginia House | 19 Comments

Looking through the bills that have been pre-filed for this year’s General Assembly session is this curious one from Henrico Delegate Frank Hargrove.  HB 1755 “Death penalty; abolished for all Class 1 felonies committed on or after July 1, 2009.” would abolish the death penalty in Virginia.  That’s pretty strange coming from a “conservative” who […]

The American Nightmare

5 January 2009 | Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 32 Comments

The Wall Street Journal touched on the wave of foreclosures in Prince William County showing that much of why we ended up with this mess has to do with ethnic-based identity politics, corruption, abuse and illegal immigration.  So many in the real estate industry conspired to prey on Latino immigrants — legal and illegal — […]

Circus Maximus

3 January 2009 | Virginia Politics | 46 Comments

Although Virginia Republicans have long-ago settled on Virginia’s Attorney General Bob McDonnell as their candidate for Governor, Democrats are engaging in a sitcom style battle to figure out who is supposed to capitalize on what they think is a shift in the electorate and follow Tim “I promise not to raise your taxes” Kaine.  It […]

It Must Be A Slow Newsday…

2 January 2009 | Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 132 Comments

You can tell it’s a slow news day when the Post runs an article on the Hysterical Housewives of Haymarket about six weeks after the article was written.  Oh well, I guess having some stories sitting on the shelf for days such as this is what newspapers are all about.
