The story that so far no one has dug into is why the Deeds campaign (through the Washington Post) chose now to dig into Bob McDonnell’s college thesis to find a hidden supposed bogeyman. When campaigns traditionally go into high gear after Labor Day, who’s trying to drop an “October Surprise” in August, of all […]
In the summer of 2007 and before the Section 287(g) Program got in full swing at the Prince William County Adult Detention Center, Manassas Park Police arrested Jose Martinez-Zeron for posessing fake identification documents. Because this was a relatively low-level offense, this illegal alien was released on a $1,000 bond. The day after he was […]
This segment from the Recess Rally in front of Congressman Gerry Connollly’s District office features a constituent demanding that Congress enroll in the same program they are trying to force on the rest of the country and who asks why it’s supposedly OK for people to demand that government stay out […]
If Congressman Gerry Connolly won’t allow a public discussion about healthcare reform and the real alternatives that are available other than socializing the whole thing, then Keith Fimian will. Once again we’re seeing that real leadership in the 11th District isn’t coming from the person pulling a taxpayer-funded paycheck to provide it, but from the challenger […]
The announcement of Jeanette Rishell’s most recent campaign event in Manassas urges the massive throngs of 50th District voters (presumably the hard-core porn demographic) to contact a new face for the Rishell campaign, who seems to have been left out of previous announcements. It’s got to make one wonder whether Rishell has traded up from […]
Former Fairfax County School Board Member Steve Hunt weighed in on ObamaCare when constituents came to Congressman Gerry Connolly’s office, offering some interesting alternatives to the proposal that Congress is considering. You’d think that with all the good ideas that Republicans are coming up with, the majority in Congress might want […]
Looks like we have another hero in the county.
The car’s engine compartment caught fire, and that’s when the driver told the officer that his baby girl was inside the car.
Oyler rushed to the car to find the child.
“I couldn’t get the driver’s side door opened so I went around to the passenger side door and […]

Much akin to throwing the Christians to the Lions, and by Lions I mean the winless 2008 Detroit Lions, so anemic they haven’t the will to devour their potential prey, US Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia’s eighth Congressional District faced a mostly convivial if not staged audience Tuesday night at […]
Normally it’s the adults that instruct the children, but in this video we see a young boy demonstrate more sense about the responsibilities of our legislators than Congressman Gerry Connolly has ever demonstrated. Thanks to fellow activist Lisa Miller for helping out with the interviews on these!
Do Virginia Republicans get new media? This video for a House candidate in little ol’ Tazwell County shows they do. In four days, this video has been seen over 11,000 times and completely energized the campaign of this challenger to long-time Democratic incumbent Dan Bowling. Let’s hope the rest of the […]
While Congressman Gerry Connolly didn’t want to hear from constituents in the 11th District, his opponent Keith Fimian did. Here’s a segment where Keith talks about how bad ObamaCare looks and what alternatives the Democrats in Congress are ignoring that would make real improvements in the quality, cost and availability of […]
If you’re a bored kid and want to make sure that your prank causes the greatest amount of confusion and tail-chasing, the News & Messenger gives you the recipe on how to do that here. No doubt this will be followed up with press conferences from visibly worried public officials and candidates telling us how […]
This morning the email inbox is abuzz with an announcement that Gerry Connolly will be holding a Town Hall meeting tomorrow. How nice that Connolly is giving people such short notice. Is he hoping that too few people could rearrange their schedules in one day so they could attend a Town Hall meeting that starts at 3:30 […]
What would someone say who lived under the kind of socialized medicine scheme that liberals want us to have here in the United States about whether it’s a good idea or not? If you’ve been wondering, here’s your answer, and it’s a pretty definitive one. Immigrants from Latvia and the Ukraine […]
Folks down in Richmond aren’t happy that Senators Warner and Webb aren’t scheduling any public Town Hall meetings with constituents that would allow them to express their concerns about the health care proposals being considered by Congress, or allow them to suggest alternative solutions. So they put up this billboard, and more are planned over […]
Here is one of Gerry Connolly’s constituents who attended the “Recess Rally” in front of Connolly’s District office and not too happy that her representative to Congress doesn’t want to hear her views on current legislation. Thanks to conservative activist Lisa Miller for helping out and being the talent in front of […]
The Department of Homeland has finally issued the revised agreement that would govern the participation of dozens of localities, including Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park, in the Section 287(g) Program according to the DC Examiner. So far, there are few details, but nothing reported to date would indicate any significant change in how […]
This weekend about 200 constituents went to Congressman Gerry Connolly’s District office to express their opinion on legislation pending before Congress, and not surprisingly Gerry ducked his constituents. Local activist Lisa Miller teamed up with BVBL to bring you coverage of this event and ensure that these constituents voices can be […]
Two hundred constituents show up in front of Gerry Connolly’s District office to voice their opinions about legislation pending before Congress, and Gerry Connolly has his office locked and avoids the event, so they demonstrate outside of his office. You’d think the mainstream media might be interested in such an event, but I only saw […]
Looks like Ken Cuccinelli’s call for a special session of the General Assembly, now being referred to as “The Cuccinelli Session”, ended up making Steve Shannon look like a chump, or so says Bob Holsworth. If Shannon is supposed to be some sort of great prosecutor, why the heck didn’t he figure out that a […]
