    I see that the Nun killer is scheduled to go on trial 31 October. Wonder if he will get another postponement or Ice will once again release him.

    I saw a massive campaign sign for Marty alongside the parkway near the Freedom Center. This was a sad reminder that Marty is now mine. I don’t want him.

    I think the drop in credit rating, while horrifying, is a wake up call to Congress and the administration as a whole - both parties - to quit f*cking around with the nickels and dimes, make the serious cuts in spending, make the tax cuts permanent and that will restore consumer confidence to grow the economy and jobs will be created.

    Anyone need a SS# and/or green card?

    Local News Coverage:

    Accompanying the news blurb covering CS’s suit against the DHS over the release of illegals was a brief segment which showed a women called Elena commenting on Corey’s law suit. Is this the infamous Elena who operates that blog?

    Colts fan - Miller Baker joined the Republican party only 6 months ago? Really? Miller has represented the RNC and the Virginia Republican Party, and he and his wife Margaret have walked preceincts for Ken Cuccinelli and Jay O’Brien, Bob Marshall and Marty Nohe. They were precinct chairmen in Springfield when they lived there — worked on the George Allen for Governor campaign, Kyle McSlarrow and Chris Braunlich for School Board. In fact, they haven’t missed walking precincts in an election for the last 20 years. So it sounds pretty funny when you say they weren’t Republicans all that time . . .

    Barbara- I said he just joined FCRC in December. That’s a fact. 6 months ago, and he’s running for the Senate. One can walk around saying I’m a Republican, but COMMIT to being one by joining the party and showing up to meetings is another. Yes, not all FCRC meetings are worth the time, and can be frustratingly dull, but non-the-less, showing support to our candidates when they speak, ask for help, volunteering at polls for THE Party does demonstrate a true commitment beyond self interest. Baker hasn’t, plain and simple. He joined just because he’s running for office, just like he just joined the NRA because he’s running for office, should I go on… He doesn’t even own a gun I’m told. And finally yes, I understand he sued FCRC last month complaining about ballot signatures that FCRC certified. Case closed. He’s a maybe-republican, small ‘r’ facade, and you’ve been fooled, plain and simple, regardless of the other guy. Also- FCRC records don’t have miller as a precinct captain in springfield ever… just thought you should know.

    Colts fan, I have been a member of FCRC continuously since 1988, so obviously I have a high regard for the organization, and I encourage people to join. Nevertheless I can tell you that some of the most dedicated and valuable volunteers are not members of FCRC for various reasons or at various times so it is in no way a sole measure of one’s activism or dedication to Republican candidates.

    Can you specify, please, what these FCRC records are and how you have access to them? Miller and his wife Margaret were precinct captains here in Lee District (where I am currently the Republican chairman) for about five years in the 1990s, in an area that is now part of Pioneer precinct, which has Springfield 22150 addresses. They were among the most active and reliable volunteers we had.

    We were sad to lose them as Lee volunteers when they moved but my friendship with them has continued and I know from talking with them regularly through the years that Miller and Margaret continued to volunteer for candidates in the area they moved to from here, and where they live now.

    I have attended some of the coffees that Miller and Margaret frequently host for their friends to meet and volunteer for candidates. They have been delegates to various conventions; in particular I remember Miller driving straight from his Reserve duty to Richmond to vote at a state convention.

    They have also assisted with pro-life GOTV efforts separate from the party, such as making phone calls to pro-life voters. They have knocked on doors, put up signs, and done just about every kind of volunteer work. These are the things that show commitment to our party, candidates, and principles and demonstrate a true commitment beyond self-interest. This commitment is part of who Miller and Margaret are.

    Miller has also provided pro-bono legal support to the party and candidates — and this does not even touch upon the ways Miller has used his legal skills at the national level to defend and advance our principles such as free speech rights for pro-life and other groups and protecting businesses from frivolous lawsuits.

    Colts’ fan - There is a difference between suing someone, which is a legal action involving the court system, and asking someone to look into some rather astonishing “irregularities”. You might check your own facts and don’t believe everything that gets sent to you in an email.
