Gainesville District residents hoping for an opportunity to dump Don Richardson had their prayers answered this week as Alyson Satterwhite filed her paperwork with the Board of Elections and is running for Don’s seat on the School Board. I’d say she’s got a very good chance of receiving the endorsement of the Republican committee, as […]
With the release of census data to state and local legislators, the time is rapidly approaching when we’re going to see some action on redistricting magisterial districts in Prince William County. That data also allows the general public, if they want to engage in a bit of number-crunching, to start projecting what the changes are […]
With precinct-level census figure now available, there’s some fascinating data available about population and voter registration rates in Prince William County. This quick-and-dirty way to spot outliers where the most illegal aliens unlawfully resident in the county isn’t by itself the perfect means of pinpointing spots where additional law enforcement and zoning attention would help, […]
Tonight PWCPS Board member Don Richardson held a town hall meeting at Westgate Elementary School to discuss the upcoming school budget and other plans of the School Board (topics I’ll cover in some detail later). What struck me first though was his answer on whether there’s been any thought to achieving some modest cost savings […]
Although the Senate rejected House amendments to SB 1049 today on a 10-29 vote today, the bill has now gone to a conference committee that will negotiate a compromise that will be considered by the House and Senate, perhaps as early as tomorrow. There is still time to contact your Senators, especially ones that wanted […]
UPDATE 2: Senate rejected House Amendments 29-10. Vote details will be up shortly.
Senator Barker’s weak SB 1049 was successfully amended by Delegate Jackson Miller today to include provisions the Senate previously hid from by not bringing the bills up in the Senate Courts of Justice Committee. Now the bill goes to the Senate […]
Rumblings are resounding over at Virtucon regarding redistricting in Prince William County, and it’s apparent the rearrangement of deck chairs has begun in earnest, even if citizens don’t have much of a clue at all about what is happening right now. As Marty Nohe struggles to find a way to remain within his district, and […]

With adult supervision being restored in the governor’s mansions in Madison, WI, Columbus, OH, Richmond, VA and Trenton, NJ, the GOP is keeping its promises of cutting budgets – and not with a scalpel, but with the necessary hacksaw.
In abject cowardice, Wisconsin’s 14 Democratic state senators fled the Dairy State […]
Finally we have an answer from the Chairman of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee as to why they aren’t going to allow debate on bills that would address illegal immigration in Virginia. Senator Henry Marsh claims he “didn’t want to take up time with them” according to a report from Delegate Scott Lingamfelter. Three […]
I guess democracy is only democracy when Democrats approve of the outcome of the democratic process, otherwise democracy is effected by democrats running away and not doing their jobs. Think this is unique? It’s not.
This silly drama unfolding in Wisconsin involving Democrat Senators fleeing to Illinois reminds me of when Frank Principi didn’t want a […]
Lots of out of control fires due to high winds today — a section of Interstate 95 was closed today, a few houses burned to the ground, and a neighborhood in Occoquan was evacuated. Not a good day. Every firefighter in the area is battling brushfires, leaving few resources, if any, for any other kind […]
Delegate Scott Lingamfelter responded to the deplorable actions by the Senate to stand in the way of any efforts to reduce the number of illegal aliens unlawfully present in the Commonwealth and reduce the incidence of violent crime committed by illegal aliens. When drug cartel violence has slaughtered 30-35,000 mexicans and drug cartels are […]
A number of Senator Chuck Colgan’s constituents were rather taken aback after Colgan sat on his hands and did nothing while the Senate of Virginia shot down a number of bills that would help state and local officials reduce the number of illegal aliens unlawfully present in Virginia, even after an illegal alien massacred three […]
What would the chances be that someone who has no fixed address and hijacks a car across the street from Frank Principi’s biggest illegal alien day laborer site might in fact be an illegal alien? Pretty good, it turns out, although the News & Messenger hasn’t quite gotten around to providing that information yet.
On the very day three victims of illegal alien crime were buried in Manassas, the Senate of Virginia killed ten bills largely on party-line votes that would have helped reduce the number of illegal aliens unlawfully present in Virginia. As has happened every single session since the issue arose, Democrats in the Senate of Virginia […]
While the Senate is considering whether to pass bills that would potentially reduce the incidence of illegal alien crime in Virginia, here’s an example of what they have already deemed worthy of their support this session: $300 million in new spending for a new office building for themselves.
Does anyone want to hazard a guess about […]
The News & Messenger is reporting that Hugo Liovani Chacon-Gutierrez was arrested on Tuedsay as a suspect in the sexual assault of a five year-old girl in Manassas that occurred on Saturday. What they are not reporting, at least yet, is that Chacon-Gutierrez is an illegal alien.
Defending illegal aliens must be a really difficult position to hold these days. After another massacre of innocent immigrants and natural-born citizens alike by an illegal alien, and the rape of an eight year old child by another illegal alien, following MS-13 attacks on schoolchildren committed by yet another illegal alien, finding a policy […]
Jackson Miller eloquently speaks for all of us here. These tragedies have to stop.
With the massacre by an illegal alien of three residents of the City of Manassas and wounding of three others one might think that the left, which is always so eager to assure us that illegal aliens aren’t responsible for much crime, might have something to say about what happened this past week. They’ve had […]
