The left is all abuzz in the wake of the Richmond Times-Dispatch fact checking Babur Lateef’s campaign ad that tries to pin class sizes, the mortgage industry meltdown and current national economic difficulties on Corey Stewart. In a reprise of “it’s all Bush’s fault” apparently every pothole, school closing for inclement weather, and auto accident […]
Since we’ve had to re-arrest over 300 illegal aliens that we have previously turned over to ICE for deportation is it any wonder people are skeptical about federal law enforcement efforts? How many times do we have to turn these people over for deportation before they finally depart?
Instead, ICE continues to release known predators […]
Northern Virginia Lawyer provides not only the hope that the Senate redistricting plan can be defeated, but solid legal reasoning why it inevitably will if only patriots in Virginia will stand up for their civil rights. Regardless of the back-room negotiations that will push this horrible and decidedly undemocratic deal through the General Assembly, and […]
The Virginian-Pilot has put up some Google maps of the proposed Senate districts (amazing what can be done when you’re not relying on Microsoft technology) and wow, are they absolutely incredible. Not one of the districts in Northern Virginia approach anything resembling sanity — each one of them is a long, snaking mess that is […]
The House has posted their redistricting bill and within that are broad descriptions of the makeup of the now eight House Districts (up from five) that will be in Prince William. Although we don’t know exactly where the proposed precinct splits are drawn, this at least gives us some idea of what these boundaries will […]
House and Senate maps are up.
UPDATE: DLIS took the new maps down, and are promising they’ll put them back up shortly.
UPDATE 2: A Senate plan is now available. DLIS Server is being crushed, and it is nearly impossible to get pages to load.
Funny how criticism from within the Coffee Party — which is supposed to be an organization dedicated to fostering respectful political discourse — starts to sound like this:
We have been sent emails from our founder [Annabel Park] calling us timid bureaucrats, sexist jerks, out of touch with the people, fearful, intimidated, unable to understand the historic […]
On April 5th the Prince William Board of County Supervisors will have a discussion about the rather bizarre proposed redistricting maps that county staff has developed. Two maps have been made public, one which keeps the current number and general positions of the seven magisterial districts and another which adds an eighth district around the […]
Since both our kids had artwork selected to appear in the county school’s art show we went on up to Battlefield High School again this year. While we were there we noticed a lot of posters on the walls encouraging students to participate in the “Gay Straight Alliance,” which I found rather disturbing. That there’s […]
Alyson Satterwhite had a tremendous campaign kickoff last night with Gainesville Supervisor John Stirrup, and Delegates Jackson Miller and Bob Marshall there to lend support. As you can tell from the video above, this is an upbeat campaign full of confidence, energy, and backed by tremendous support in the Gainesville district.

Patricia is running for Senate in Loudoun County and probably by next Tuesday we’ll have a good idea of what district she’ll be in and who else may be running. I’ve known Patricia for quite some time now and without any reservation I say […]
If Senator George Barker’s campaign kickoff includes Congressman Jim Moran as a “special guest,” would voters be correct in assuming that Barker agrees with the policies promoted by Moran and his actions as a Congressman? It’s hard to come to any other conclusion when the first official event of your re-election campaign prominently features Virginia’s […]
After being pounded upon for releasing illegal aliens back into our community after they were turned over by local authorities for deportation, the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement rounded up 163 illegal aliens in Northern Virginia earlier this week. Meanwhile millions of Americans also did the jobs they’re being paid to do but no […]
So according to the Gainesville Times, Gary Friedman has decided to abandon his bid for Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. Not too surprising with the leadership of the PWCDC arrayed so defiantly against probably their most qualified challenger candidate for any office in years. They told donors to stay away from Friedman’s campaign. They […]
Here’s one that struck me as rather odd today: One of George Allen’s supporters wasn’t quite happy that in an online poll on BearingDrift.com Allen wasn’t getting the stratospheric levels of support that he thought George was due. While that’s in no way unusual, what is unusual is the message he sent out over facebook […]
And finally, there’s a proposed redistricting map up for Prince William County. What a whopper!

Governor McDonnell issued an executive order to have state agencies participate in the federal E-Verify system by June 1st rather than have them wait for the December 2012 deadline demanded by the Senate of Virginia. At least in the case of state agencies, new publicly-funded jobs will go to legal workers rather than illegal aliens […]
Ron Speakman is first out of the gate with some quality video in the Loudoun Sheriff’s race. This video appears to be cut for broadcast television or cable, which either indicates Speakman is going to do an ad buy in this expensive market, or is at least hedging bets with […]
I have been waiting so long for this…
Now maybe this makes sense, but to me it seems really strange. Why would a municipality pay someone $231,000 a year (plus benefits and expenses) to work part time up to 27 1/2 hours a week? If their duties for that municipality exceed 110 hours in a month, they get to bill the city $175 […]
