The Obama administration has made it pretty clear over and over again that it has no interest in enforcing our nation’s immigration laws. The Washington Times reports that the Congressional Research Service and the House Judiciary Committee has tallied up what that policy has cost us in human terms, and it’s quite a heavy price:
The Obama […]
From the looks of this Washington Post article, the only reason local non-profits put sitting Supervisors and their family on their boards is so they can get taxpayer money. Thank you Chairman Stewart for pointing out so clearly the need for the Board of Supervisors to adopt Supervisor Candland’s ethics proposal.
Doesn’t this kind of describe precisely what […]
If you want to find out which of the members of the Manassas Park Governing Board have been corrupted by land developers, on July 31st you’ll have your unassailable answer.
An outfit called EMSI Properties has offered to purchase two city owned land parcels totaling about eight acres at a price $1 per square foot. Although […]
What need for ethical reform on the Board of County Supervisors could possibly be more obvious than Supervisor Candland’s proposal that would call on supervisors to recuse themselves from votes where they or immediate family members serve on the board of entities getting county funding? Wally Covington’s latest proposal to ladle gobs of taxpayer cash […]
The Sheriff put this up on his site this evening and I’ve watched it a few times, but I’m still not sure what’s going on here. Elizabeth Warren isn’t lurking around here somewhere, is she?
UPDATE: Blue Virginia, the mouthpiece of the Occupy movement and voice of the illegal alien lobby has rare praise for […]
After a citizen raised the issue that the defunding of Catharpin Park was political payback for Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s introduction of a motion to eliminate Supervisor’s political slush funds, Corey took this opportunity to explain how the BOCS is trying to find opportunities to increase the youth recreational opportunities, especially on the eastern side […]
Federal spending cuts under “sequestration” are estimated to eliminate over 200,000 jobs in the Commonwealth next year. The county’s unfunded pension obligations have exploded to over a billion dollars, more than doubling, in the past four years. Unemployment remains persistently high and the economic recovery has stalled. We’re clearly in for a rough fiscal ride.
So what does […]
Obama’s campaign stop in Roanoke may well herald the end of his presidential campaign. Saying that entrepreneurs aren’t responsible for their own success, success that should be attributed to government instead of business owners, isn’t just offensive to the huge chunk of the population that is building success on their own, it is utterly alien […]
Once out of the burning building, the fire victims seemed to disappear. Fire officials on the scene said no one came forward for help, EMS crews were not able to identify any victims on their own, and no one was transported to a hospital.
Gee, I have to wonder why victims escaping a fire felt the need […]
Exploding unfunded pension liabilities for Prince William county government and professional employees of the school division now amount to $2,500 for every man, woman and child in the county, according to new data from Sheriff of Nottingham. That’s with a school board and Board of Supervisors that’s supposedly comprised of Republicans, who love to wax poetic […]

Obama ventured into Northern Virginia on Saturday for a campaign event in Centreville, drawing several hundred protesters that demonstrated just how much things have changed in Virginia since 2008. Last time around, Northern Virginia localities like Fairfax County were Obama’s core […]
Mauricio Matrinez will be serving only seven and a half years in prison for his role in MS-13’s execution of a 15 year-old Hispanic boy, apparently chosen at random as he was walking down the street in Manassas. Of course at the end of his prison sentence he will be turned over to federal authorities for deportation, […]
Politico, hardly a hotbed of conservative thought, says that Americans by nearly a 2 to 1 margin want statewide laws similar to what Prince William County passed in 2007.
On another topic, a large number of voters — 61 percent to 34 percent, want an Arizona-style immigration law in their state.
The Arizona immigration law allows police to […]
If you want to understand Democrats, it helps to see them in action. Yes, it’s rather like delving into abnormal psychology, an intellectual exercise perhaps engaged in either out of morbid curiosity or driven by a desire to help these poor souls recover some appreciation of reality in the hope they can eventually live fruitful, […]
Last evening the Manassas City Council voted to appoint the leftist, liberal political activist Martin Crim as City Attorney. Only two council members had the courage to vote against this appointment, Marc Aveni and the newly sworn-in Ian Lovejoy. It’s refreshing to see that there are actually Republicans on City Council who act like Republican elected officials […]
