Readers shouldn’t be surprised that the light posting of late is an indication of some substantial recent work demands. In the meantime, lots has been happening that I wish I had more time to write about. Here’s your chance to pick up the slack…
Guest post by Allison K. and Chris P.
While there have been no new developments built in the Westgate/Sudley area for 25 years, the PWC School Board is proposing that a new elementary school be built at Stonewall Middle School where the track and the bus lot stand today. For a link to the Planning […]
Roll Call outlines how the Obama Administration has virtually ceased enforcing our nation’s immigration laws in many respects, giving illegal aliens what amounts to a “virtual amnesty” for illegals as long as they haven’t committed a felony. I can’t say such a turn of events is unexpected from these folks.
The statistics don’t lie. Last year, […]
This is apparently becoming a pretty popular video. Here’s Ken Cuccinelli explaining why the Commonwealth of Virginia is going to file a lawsuit against the federal government to strike down the health care reform bill.
In honor of Congressman Gerry Connolly’s perfidy this evening, I thought this video would be rather appropriate.
There’s a buzz out there that the folks shouting slurs at elected officials during yesterday’s TEA Party events at the Capitol may have actually been made by SEIU members trying to manufacture controversy and cast the TEA Party movement in a negative light. So far I’ve seen no evidence that this was the case, but […]
Congressman Gerry Connolly has once again played his little game of being ‘undecided’ on one of Nancy Peolsi’s key initiatives, but at the last hour broke the suspense and announced he would support her agenda on health care. Anyone familiar with Connolly’s voting record could have seen this one coming from a mile away. It’s […]
Manassas City is advertising a tax rate of $1.155, Prince William County is advertising $1.236, and Manassas Park’s advertised rate is $1.27. Then there are fire levies and all sorts of other charges on top of the tax rate to make matters worse. Of course these municipalities could adopt a tax rate lower than the […]
Those of you who can’t attend this presentation with Richard Vigurie and Pat McSweeney at the Chantilly Regional Library today from 3:30 to 6:00 PM will be able to watch this on my UStream live channel starting at 3:30 this afternoon.
UPDATE: Apologies to those trying to tune in this afternoon. We had an exceptionally […]
I’ll be back in town Sunday evening, and my travels haven’t allowed me to contribute to the political discussion in Virginia so far this week. Regardless, my blackberry has been constantly buzzing with plenty of happenings in the General Assembly and local news that I wish I had the opportunity to highlight. Until I’m back […]
Congratulations to Mark Sell for pulling out a victory in today’s election for LCRC Chairman. Both he and Candace Strother were excellent candidates for this position, and it’s a really healthy thing to see such great members of the committee step up for consideration by Loudoun Republicans for this job. Now comes the hard work […]
Keith Fimian and RPV kept up a steady barrage of criticism against Gerry Connolly for accepting money from the scandal-ridden Charlie Rangel, forcing Connolly to cast off $9,000 from his campaign fund lest his close association with Rangel become a campaign issue. Once again, Connolly is reacting to Keith Fimian who has been on his […]
One of the projects that kept me so busy this week (and posting less than usual) was this promotional video for the Ronald Reagan Lecture Series that the Loudoun County Republican Committee puts on each month. These seem like fascinating events, and I’ll do my best to keep readers informed […]
A proposal to shield illegal aliens in some circumstances from being questioned by law enforcement is under consideration by the House Courts of Justice Committee, and recently the Immigration Reform Law Institute was asked by Save The Old Dominion to evaluate the legality of this proposal after consulting with some members of the House of […]
Senator Chuck Colgan has done a great job so far this session of channeling Louis XIV. When VDOT complained about the costs of HB 652, a bill designed to ensure that those who have their property seized under eminent domain are properly compensated, Colgan voted to kill the bill, ensuring that the demonstrated practice of […]
Here’s the first in a series of one minute videos by Keith Fimian where he discusses his campaign and the important issues he intends to address as the next Congressman representing the 11th District. I’m really looking forward to seeing more of these.
I’m backed up terribly with time really tight deadlines, and have had no chance to post. Note the special election today in Fairfax, that SB 462’s limited amnesty for illegal aliens seems poised to shoot through the House of Delegates since nobody has seemed to notice this PC-fest has major problems, and HB 737’s jobs […]
I wish I could have been at this, but fortunately O. P. was there to capture some video of Keith Fimian’s official campaign kickoff for those of us who weren’t. I love how Keith continues to hone his message — it certainly gets the crowd all fired up!
