Tonight there was a “debate” of sorts between Delegate Bob Marshall, the author of HB 10, and Senator Donald McEachen, who amiably represents the exact polar opposite of the political spectrum. The topic of discussion was of course Obamacare. Not wanting to miss a match-up between such polar political extremes, especially when it was to […]
Go figure that the over-the-top hyperbole coming from the left and their “mainstream media” allies regarding Arizona’s new law is just as much a bunch of hooey as when we heard the same rhetoric about the Rule of Law Resolution in 2007. When references to Nazi Germany and the KKK were made even before the […]
In anticipation of some sort of announcement by Senator Colgan, candidates are ramping up for a primary campaign that should be rather interesting. Bob Fitzsimmonds has already sent out a fundraising letter, and now Jackson Miller is getting attention over at Virtucon. Can some news from Senator Colgan about his much-anticipated retirement be far behind?
Now that […]

The Washington Post, the alleged newspaper of record for the nation’s capitol and its metropolitan area, over the past seven days ending with Saturday, April 24, 2010 ran six articles, editorials or columns each decrying the lack of voting rights yet to bestowed upon the residents of the District of […]
Nice to see what Arizona is doing - stepping up to protect their citizens when the federal government is chasing it’s tail trying to figure out how to coddle illegal aliens. A few years back a similar bill was introduced in the Virginia General Assembly, but predictably the Senate wasn’t going to go for it. […]
After a discussion during closed session, no less, the Prince William County School Board decided to withdraw their appeal of the planning commission’s rejection of their attempt to locate an elementary school on the site of Stonewall Middle School. Board member Don Richardson and Superintendent Steve Walts in particular didn’t seem upbeat at all as […]
The Prince William County School Board is appealing the recent decision by the planning commission regarding shoehorning a new elementary school on the grounds of Stonewall Middle School with an appeal that reads like a bad joke. The entire thing reads like “yes, our idea isn’t optimal, but you should give us waivers anyways”and “the […]
The leftists are absolutely aghast that PWC Chairman Corey Stewart would have the temerity to challenge the imposition of federal mandates on local government that could negatively impact the provision of a wide array of services to our county residents. In the view of the socialists, ObamaCare is a done deal, and we are duty-bound […]
The Prince William County School Board is meeting tomorrow to consider whether to appeal the decision of the planning commission regarding adding an Elementary School to the site of Stonewall Middle School to the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. Of course there’s hardly any advance notice for this meeting (as Virginia law would seem […]
Yes, I called it. We’re getting a permanent home for the National Museum of Americans At War right here in Prince William County. Until then, Chairman Corey Stewart has his own tank battalion to employ in the defense of Prince William County and its residents. Well, not quite, but we can still dream, can’t we?

Article II, Section I of the Constitution of the United States of America requires the President swear an oath of office that includes the words to “protect and defend” that very document.
Upon the administration of said oath, that president becomes Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. United States military officers […]
You gotta love that “stimulus.” It has generated the most creative ideas imaginable, or hardly so, about spending your money for all sorts of ‘worthy’ purposes such as expanding the carbon footprint of Fairfax County Government by burning down the vacant Circuit City store in Springfield so it can become a bus terminal, where taxpayer-funded […]
Chairman Corey Stewart sent out a press release today saying a big announcement will be made on April 13th that involves a new museum locating in the county. The press release also mentions “tanks, half tracks, jeeps and other pieces of historic wartime equipment on display.” Not many national museums feature armored vehicles and might […]
Tonight the Prince William County Planning Commission unanimously rejected a plan by the Prince William County School Board to co-locate a new elementary school on the grounds of Stonewall Middle School. The School System has ten days to appeal to the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, which they are quite likely to do, and […]
Rumors are swirling that Prince William County Police Chief Charlie Deane is telling folks that he intends to retire in May. If this is true, that might be the deadline for the next outrush of illegal aliens from Prince William County. No one likely to be hired to replace Deane could be as accommodating to […]
The TEA Party returns to Prince William County this April 15th with what promises to be another stellar event. You can come by the McCoart Center on the 15th between noon and two PM to see a wide array of speakers tackle the reckless behavior of Congress and this Administration, and then pick up with […]
