    Webb announces he’s retiring.
    Radke raises $100 K.
    Allen thinks he deserves a coronation.
    Do the R’s have the heart to run a real race?

    Jim Webb to retire; Democrats eye Tim Kaine


    And away we go…Dems, please nominate Tim Kaine. Or better yet, Terry McAuliffe.

    Wait, the Dems could nominate Terry McAuliffee ? Wow, you must really have a high opinion of the over the hill senior women’s vote. Ok, yep, could happen.

    Tim Kaine has said in the past that he has no interest in running for political office again, or at least the Senate seat. He also ruined his chances when he became the head of the DNC, a very partisan position, that showed the true timmy, not the fake bi-partisan timmy that he tried to push when he was Governor.

    The only D that would have a shot at Allen or any of the nut cases(Stewart, Marshall, Radke) that the Rs might nominate is Kaine. The other possibles are deeply flawed or running for something else other than the Senate seat: Perriello just got creamed in his cong race, same with Nye, Wilder is just too old, Moran viewed as too liberal below Fairfax and needs to stay focused on rebuilding the D apparatus after the dreadfull “leadership” of Dickie Cranwell, McAuliffe is well into the Gov race to try to succeed McDonnell. So….Kaine is the one by default. He has statewide name recognition as well as a tough campaigner although a little thin skinned. Allen’s racist past will haunt him in an election in 2012 when Obama will likely bring out droves of young people and minorities (21% of VA electorate is black, 9% hispanic, 5% asian/middle east) so Allen loses 35% right off the bat, so Kaine needs 25% of the white vote, given huge margins he would get in Fairfax, Arlington and Alexandria, seems he would be electable.

    Great news!……….Don’t you think so?
    Virginia’s House of Delegates gave final approval Tuesday to a package of bills designed to crack down on illegal immigration, including a measure based on Prince William County’s policy that would require all state and local law enforcement officials to inquire of the immigration status of any person they arrest.”My thoughts are I regret that this is what it’s come to,” said Del. Scott Lingamfelter (R-Prince William) who sponsored the most controversial measure based on Prince William County’s policy. “I regret that the federal government has been so derelict in their duty that they have not enforced the laws of our land.”

    The Republican-ruled House also passed other immigration-related bills on crossover day — the final chance for the Senate and House of Delegates to complete work on bills originating in each chamber — that would order colleges and universities to adopt written policies barring illegal immigrants from enrollment, require schools to begin tallying the numbers of immigrant children on their rolls, and force large state contractors to use the E-Verify electronic background check.

    Still others would push the Virginia State Police to join a federal-state program used to enforce immigration laws, boost the criminal penalties for dealing in fake birth certificates, and require local social services departments to ensure that the recipients of benefits are not illegal immigrants. Another bill targets local jurisdictions that have gained a reputation as so-called sanctuary communities by directing their police and other officials to overlook immigration status.

    Even the Democratic-led Senate, which generally looks askance at many such bills and will likely kill a number adopted by the House, unanimously adopted a bill Tuesday to require public contractors to use the E-Verify computer system to confirm that their employees are legally present in the United States. Because the House adopted a similar measure, it is likely to go to the governor for signature.
    (link: http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.

    The Virginia Coalition of Latino Organizations (VACOLAO) warned Tuesday that the bill modeled on Prince William — sponsored by Lingamfelter (R-Prince William) — goes farther than Arizona’s controversial law allowing police greater latitude to detain illegal immigrants.

    In the 2011 budget, each member of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors was given $89,000 to add a new employee to their staff. Supervisors May, Caddigan and Nohe decided not to add new employees to their staff at this time because “they felt like growing their own office budgets in a tough budget year was sending the wrong message at the wrong time” and gave the money back to the county. Sheriff Glendell Hill was given $160,000 for two new employees. Did he decide to take the money and run, or did he too feel like growing his office budget in a tough budget year was sending the wrong message at the wrong time and gave the money back to the county?

    With the county police having to cut school resource officers that help teach children the dangers of gangs and drug use, and cuts in community resource officers that help keep our communities safe, I hope Sheriff Hill did the right thing, but knowing him I doubt it.

    Many democrats are revealing their “new” approach to a comeback in 2012. In an attempt to distract the voting public from the mounting damage they have done, a one two punch attack of calling “racist” at every opportunity and a heavy reliance on “white guilt” is their plan to victory.

    Taking a cue from our second black president, Barack Obama, they will ignore and downplay every racial slip from their fellow democrats such as vice president Biden and senator Harry Reid, and focus on any possible sound bite from the other party, no matter how old, in an attempt to discredit their opponent. Rumors and wild innuendo will also be considered as recent polls show the initial accusation has the most lasting effect, and most voters rarely connect a retraction to the initial story.

    In an effort to enlist any and all groups to their side, they will even venture overseas to gain allies who may influence their stateside friends and relatives. While the outright attack launched by Mexican president Calderon while addressing our congress received mixed reviews, recent actions such as banning the use of inflammatory terms as “Islamic terrorist” and “Islamic extremist”, and discounting any terrorist activities to “man-caused disasters” is already showing promise.

    Immigrant Advocates Rally in Arlington

    Local supporters of immigrant rights held a press conference in Arlington today to voice their opposition to a slew of anti-immigrant legislation in Richmond.

    Speaking in front of TV cameras and about 15 audience members at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Route 50, immigrant advocates said the bills represent the kind of “divisive, partisan politics” that Virginia’s immigrant community has “always feared.”

    “Now more than ever we cannot be silent, we have to act,” said Dr. Emma Violand-Sanchez, an Arlington County School Board member and a board member of Northern Virginia Community College. “We have to defeat all these anti-immigrant bills.”

    Violand-Sanchez said she was particularly concerned about HB 1465, which passed the Virginia House of Delegates by a vote of 75-24. The bill would deny undocumented students the opportunity to attend public colleges, including community colleges, in Virginia. Violand-Sanchez said the bill would affect about 200 undocumented Northern Virginia Community College students who are currently paying the out-of-state tuition rate.

    “We cannot create a permanent underclass of marginalized young people who are not allowed to continue to their education,” she said. “These students work hard to pay for their education… Will we close the door to them now?”

    Melanie Maron Pell, Director of the American Jewish Committee of Washington, which supports immigrant rights, said there’s an economic argument to be made for the defeat of HB 1465.

    “Are these not the young people we want in our society and in our economy?” she asked. “It’s simply bad public policy… Let’s stop punishing kids for the actions of their parents.”

    Here are three of the dozen or so other bills that the Virginia Coalition of Latino Organizations — which organized today’s press conference — is actively opposing:

    HB 1934, which would require Virginia State Police to enter a so-called 287(g) agreement with the Department of Homeland Security to give state troopers federal immigration enforcement powers.

    HB 1421, an “anti-sanctuary” bill targeted at Arlington.

    HB 2332, which would require state and local law enforcement officers to ask about a suspect’s citizenship status after they’re arrested but before they see a judge. This bill would also allow a suspect to be held without bond if they’re suspected of being an illegal alien.

    The bills have all passed the House and have now crossed over for consideration by the Democrat-controlled state Senate.

    “We believe in the American values of opportunity, equality, fairness and compassion,” Violand-Sanchez said, calling for the Senate to kill the bills. “These values have been trampled by the House of Delegates.”

    timmy kaine is done… he lied his way into the Governorship and has just been about as partisan as one can be in his role with the DNC. Outside of the far left is anyone going to believe he can suddenly switch back to being a non partisan hack?

    Warner ran on being middle of the road, have a look at his voting record. He is in the back pocket of Nancy and Harry, not exactly the poster kids for being bi-partisan.

Why should my tax dollars be used to educate illegal aliens? He is completely un-American. He claims he “fought in Vietnam”. My only question is, “on who’s side?”

    Boucher is an interesting pick. But, he may run into issues in NOVA, where he might just not be liberal enough for Arlington, Alexandria and parts of Fairfax. And those are areas where dems have to do extremely well.

    The GTS killings are either by the gang that killed Mickey Hernandez, or retaliation by gang members that knew Hernandez. His family claims he wasn’t a gang member (isn’t that what they always claim). maybe, but he knew a lot of them. After his killing, Father Bob invited Hernandez friends and family to the 5:30 Sunday mass at All Saints. These folks didn’t look at all comfortable in a church, and the first two or three pews were full of likely gang members. Why do I say that? because NICE teenage boys don’t have gang tats on their necks. As I feared, the GTS gang war was just starting.

    If only ICE would do a raid in Georgetown South. If only ICE would do their job at the border.

    I wish we could call the ATeam.

    How many more people have to die before the illegal alien supporters realized we have a deadly serious problem.

    Look at what goes on over at Coverstone. My neighbor’s daughter almost got carjacked at the Coverstone 7-11 recently. Look at Irongate. MS 13 and SUR13 are over there. How long do you think it will be till a major incident happens in those places. We have several powder kegs around here just waiting to explode.

    I really hope the multiple murders in GTS last night wakes them ALL up! And, if it doesn’t? Please, everyone, go to your polling place next election and vote them out. We should have zero tolerance for illegal immigrants and the people who provide them with jobs and welfare, while turning a blind eye to all of the destruction they bring with them.
