As elected officials line up to oppose the road development known at various times as the Bi-County Parkway, the Tri-County Parkway and the North-South Corridor, one important voice has been noticeably absent - that of Corey Stewart. Will Corey Stewart side with the people who are skeptical of the supposed “benefits” of this road project for developers and […]
Being on the board of directors of a local tea party that is affiliated with the Virginia Tea Party Patriots, I really don’t expect to be surprised by an out-of-the-blue candidate endorsement by them along with a federal/state political action committee called “Middle Resolution PAC.” Yet I was, so I’m immediately suspicious about how this came to […]
My friend Willie Deutsch released the raw data from the poll he ran on his site today and asked if some of us might do some number crunching for him. Of course I’m happy to oblige, as this was probably the best designed online poll of the election cycle and the results are probably the best those […]
With Manassas City Schools Superintendent Catherine Magouyrk joining the legion of public officials who misuse taxpayer resources to promote a political agenda, it’s time to bring the hammer down on these public officials who feel entitled to use our taxpayer dollars to badger other governmental bodies. Magouyrk is hardly the first to engage in this stunningly unethical […]
About the only good thing anyone can say about tax rates in Prince William County is that they’re not going to be anywhere near as bad as they’ll soon be in Manassas City, which itself is working overtime to bring their tax rates up to the stratospheric heights that only Manassas Park has achieved.

Jeremy McPike works for the City of Alexandria and is the Democrat running for the 31st House District, which is currently represented by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter. Either he’s getting a […]
I’ve been a huge fan of Tom Tancredo ever since he started grabbing the spotlight during the 2008 presidential election campaigns. He’s been a tremendous advocate of improving border security, protecting our rights, reducing the size and scope of the federal government and dealing with the illegal alien issue in an honest, effective and straightforward manner. That […]
Maureen Caddigan is at it again. Not content to have her recent outburst calling citizens serving on a volunteer budget review committee “despicable” as the most memorable example of her utter lack of fitness for office, now she’s on the warpath against the Mayor of Dumfries in yet another unhinged example of ridiculous excess. Did Gerry Foreman […]
Well, this comes as a welcome surprise. Perhaps some of our local elected officials, particularly those seeking higher office, listen after all.
Prince William County Chairman Corey Stewart will introduce a resolution this evening threatening to withhold county contributions to the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) unless the organization reverses resolution R3-2013, which advocates restricting Second Amendment […]
