The race for the Republican nomination for Attorney General got quite a bit more interesting this week after a bizarre email was sent out by the John Brownlee campaign that had lots of immigration enforcement activists scratching their heads. At a debate in Southside this week, Brownlee claimed that Ken Cuccinelli had stated his opposition […]
The county’s Office of Information Technology recently came under the microscope of an independent auditor working for the Board of Supervisors, and lo and behold, now three employees are under investigation for bid-rigging. It’s about time this fiscal black hole in the county budget got some scrutiny, and thanks to the Board of Supervisors and […]

In plain English, what the hell is the matter with this pinhead masquerading as a leader? An unannounced fly-over Ground Zero in Manhattan for the purpose of a photo op near the Statue of Liberty by a plane serving as a backup to Air Force One not to mention the […]

This just in: former RINO Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania has made it official just moments ago that he is leaving the GOP and returning to his Philadelphia Democratic Party roots, in what is no doubt a desperate attempt to hang on the Senate seat to he currently clings.
Specter announced he […]
The race in the 52nd House District just got a little more complex with the announced withdrawal of Amy Frederick from the race. From the tone of this, it would appear that the Fredericks are positioning themselves more to lead a conservative grassroots revolt within RPV than seek office under it. While it’s still possible […]
UPDATE: Here is the video of Franklin Raff’s speech, a highlight of the event:
If you didn’t make this, you missed a great event. The speakers at this event were:
Tomorrow (Saturday) will be another Tea Party protest, this time in front of the White House at Lafayette Park. While raising your voices on April 15th helped, getting runaway spending under control isn’t going to happen by spending just two hours in the rain on tax day. It’s going to take a continuing effort, and […]
Some residents of Montgomery County, Maryland saw the April 5th post regarding illegal alien fugitive and suspected child rapist Marcos Danilo Reyes Banegas and started to ask some pointed questions of the county police chief Thomas Manger and County Executive Ike Leggett. Incensed that Banegas has been arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct […]
In honor of “Earth Day” (or Lenin’s birthday, if you prefer) I invite you to enjoy the above video of some members of Earth First. Maybe we can all shed tears in remembrance of all of the horrible things that the human race has visited on Mother Gaia. The […]

Before enjoying the local Cinco de Mayo festivities around Alexandria, take five minutes on Tuesday, May 5 to cast ballots for City Council and School Board candidates. The polls are open from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. and that a mere 19 percent of eligible voters bothered to turn out […]
Consistent illegal alien apologist Steve Smith has been appointed to a judgeship on the General District Court, a potentially troubling development, but the appointment opens up a seat on the Manassas City Council. That raises a number of interesting possibilities which could help determine whether conservatives can improve their position in Manassas City politics, or […]
Once again, have at it!
Jeanette Rishell is out there once again trying to be our delegate. After the twenty point thumping she got last year, most would have thought she would have gotten the message about just how terrible a candidate she is and how extraordinarily difficult it would be for her to unseat Delegate Jackson Miller. Even the […]
This is the first of several videos I hope to get to from today’s Tea Party at the McCoart Center, and is an overview of the event. As time allows, I’ll get the speeches posted, which will probably start happening tomorrow. This gives a good overview of the event […]
From noon till 2PM today, bring your signs and yourself to the McCoart building and protest the irresponsible spending by this administration and Congress. Yeah, the weather won’t be great, but your grandchildren will thank you!
The Department of Homeland Security released an intelligence assessment yesterday entitled: “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” DHS has completed a number of assessments in the past four years informing local police departments of Islamic Jihadists, the illicit use of portable digital music players, neo-Nazis, and […]
UPDATE: THE NOMINATION FAILS! No: Caddigan, Stirrup, Jenkins, Principi, Stewart. Yes: Covington, May, Nohe.
Quick, can you answer this question? Who said the following?
“I live in Prince William County, VA, the current capital of local government sponsored, institutionalized racism.” (ref)
Okay, maybe that was an easy one. Next question: Who decided Katherine Gotthardt would be a […]
As the inside story continues to leak out about the removal of Jeff Frederick as RPV Chairman, it looks like a grass-roots revolt may be brewing that will come to a head at the upcoming RPV Convention. Howie Lind’s recent email to Republican activists certainly adds fuel to that fire, but so far any actual […]
Even in these troubled times, we are reassured that our Savior has risen, and although we didn’t deserve his grace, we have it. No matter what happens, our faith sustains us and we have certain hope for the future secure in our knowledge that God has a plan for us.
His is risen!

Columnist Michael Shannon raises a lot of good points in today’s News & Messenger about Prince William County Police Chief Charlie Deane’s approach to implementing the direction of the Board of County Supervisors. The ultimate question raised by all of this is whether regular citizens should be able to expect fair treatment from the police […]
