Crystal Clear Conservative covers the recent developments about establishing a new hospital in Haymarket, pointing out the unusual behavior of the Commonwealth in trying to kibosh the idea. I still don’t understand why the state has the power, or even the inclination, to say no to a private enterprise wanting to expand access to healthcare. […]
So says Brian Kirwin, anyways. The Daily Press dives into the controversy and digs up some fascinating tidbits about what happened at Freedom Fest, making an already bizarre case even stranger.
It was pretty funny at the time to me. Sarah was giving boilerplate rhetoric from a written speech. Nothing wrong with that, but what […]
Jim Hoeft over at Bearing Drift gets kicked out of the Freedom Fest in Hampton Roads just as Sarah Palin starts speaking???
Beware, patriots. When big-name organizers tightly associated with one political party try to create their own Tea Party type events, don’t ever think that they give a damn about the real grassroots. It’s one […]
Well, at least I have to honor the guy’s honesty. This is from an email I got Saturday from a friend who had a chance to catch up with Congressman Jim Moran over the weekend:
I ran into Rep. Moran at the Del Ray Music Festival today. I was sweaty and miserable from the oppressive […]
One of the highlight’s of this Friday night’s Manassas Tea Party celebration was the appearance of Sonnie Johnson, President of the Virginia Chapter of the Frederick Douglass Foundation. I’ve never seen anyone at a Tea Party before rile up a crowd like this while blasting through all sorts of leftist […]
Although the gentle lady in this video is from Milwaukee, she pretty much demonstrates the usual depth of understanding on the issue of illegal immigration typical of liberals everywhere. Nothing has brought out such stunning displays of incompetence and ignorance as the left’s blathering about Arizona’s SB 1070, a law that […]
Be the first office building in your complex to display this creative ornament!
Only in America can you find someone who can supply a fake dead vulture to hang off your building’s roof. While the inclination to display this kind of creative corporate fashion statement would have probably forever eluded me, I can nonetheless celebrate the […]
Friday night at the Harris Pavillion is the Defend the Constitution Rally sponsored by the Manassas Tea Party.
I’m going to be there. Will you be?
The effort to establish an official day laborer center in Centreville by open borders advocates continues unabated despite a recent huge outcry by Centreville residents at a public meeting earlier this month. Fortunately, it seems that the shine on this monstrosity has worn off a bit, and the meeting this Tuesday only managed to draw […]
While I’m backed up on projects perhaps readers can start the conversation…

Rahm Emanuel is the opportunist’s opportunist. The Obama administration Chief of Staff first said “never let a serious crisis go to waste.” Then, this past weekend, Emanuel referred to Congressman Joe Barton’s apology to BP as a “gift,” demonstrative of how the GOP would behave. For that, Emanuel is a […]

Barack Obama left his ivory tower to talk about the progress of the stimulus package, yet his visit cost construction workers a day’s pay and nary a word was uttered about it in the so-called main stream media. However, a BP spokesman, for whom English is not his first language, […]
What’s the only thing better than drawing a Unitarian as a challenger in your next election? How about having John Gray run against you? It’s arguably a better position to be in as Gray has managed to enrage both Democrats and Republicans by flip-flopping between affiliation with both parties while retaining all the personal charm […]
Utterly shocking behavior from the NRA, and a complete sell-out of it’s membership. From VCDL comes this incredibly disturbing alert:
Where in the oath of office that Congressmen take does it mention that they must steal directly from their constituents in order to further their campaigns? Tonight I pose that question to Congressman Gerry Connolly, whose theft of the intellectual property from one of the people he supposedly represents clearly violates his oath of office […]
Via Corey Stewart comes the Rule of Law Campaign for Virginia, which would establish something similar to Arizona’s SB 1070 for the Commonwealth. Sounds like a fine idea to me, especially when the federal government is going out of its way to NOT do the job of getting and keeping illegal aliens out of the […]
Manassas will no longer be absent from the rolls of the Tea Party movement, and their inaugural event promises to be a blockbuster. On June 25th, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Delegate Bob Marshall, Virginia Tea Party Patriots leader Jaime Radke, Ben Marchi from Americans For Prosperity and Sonnie Johnson of the Fredrick Douglas Foundation will […]

If the Democratic Party of South Carolina truly believes in the American system of fair and open elections, it will stop attempting to sabotage its own senatorial candidate.
Granted, this advice comes from a Republican eager to see Senator Jim DeMint reelected to the body he serves in so well, but, […]
The clown act from Congressman Gerry Connolly continued last week as Gerry tries, and predictably fails, to get Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernake to join in on the notion that there’s nothing that can be cut from the federal budget and the only option left is to raise taxes. The […]
Old Dominion Watchdog reports on a development I’ve been hoping, and expecting to see for quite some time: that with fewer illegal aliens unlawfully resident in our community legal immigrants actually enjoy a greater degree of safety and security than before. Go figure that when you reduce the number of illegal aliens you also reduce […]
