The Washington Post, in an article which rather strangely reports on the Washington Post as if it was a third party, announced that it is “reportedly,” according to unnamed sources, considering putting up a paywall on their online edition. In addition, the 80 local newspapers sold by Media General to Warren Buffet (less the Manassas News & […]
Recently Chairman Corey Stewart complained to the Washington Post about “conservative bloggers trying to paint him into a corner” in regards to ethics reform on the Prince William County Board. For years this same segment of the electorate were among his most dedicated and reliable supporters. When he wanted to get something done, these were the […]
There’s quite a bit of chatter bouncing around the Virginia blogosphere about how the appointment of Tracy Thorne-Begland as a judge was shot down this week, most of which has wrongly claimed — and without any supporting evidence whatsoever — that anyone opposing this nomination was simply a bigot. Quite a few Republicans, most […]
BVBL crossed another milestone on Sitemeter today as we passed 1,500,000 site visits this morning. That number’s pretty close to the combined populations of Fairfax and Prince William counties, which doesn’t imply they’ve all paid us a visit yet but gives a little context to just how big a number that is.
If I only had […]
You can add one more item to your overflowing bag of reasons why you shouldn’t subscribe or advertise in the News & Messenger today, as their editor starts making not-so-veiled threats against the founder of PotomacLocal.com, which just happens to be outworking this dinosaur on the other end of the county from me. I can […]
Sitemeter reports we’ve crossed the three million page view mark this past week. Although my server logs report much higher numbers, sitemeter filters out visits and page views by bots from search engines and other automated crawlers, so this number pretty closely tracks actual eyeballs. With 3,905 posts and 104,027 comments on BVBL it sure […]
Not many things bug me more than when people who are supposed to be able to think for themselves swallow obvious leftist inanities without hint a critical thought. Such is the case with Bacon’s Rebellion today, a Virginia blog that at least used to receive widespread acclaim for thoughtful analysis. When the wildly partisan leftist […]
Defending illegal aliens must be a really difficult position to hold these days. After another massacre of innocent immigrants and natural-born citizens alike by an illegal alien, and the rape of an eight year old child by another illegal alien, following MS-13 attacks on schoolchildren committed by yet another illegal alien, finding a policy […]
This week I received paperwork from the Clerk’s office notifying me that the lawsuit initiated against me by Steve Chapman has been dismissed. Now that this legal cloud has been lifted I can give readers the full, behind the scenes story of the founding of this website without being concerned about how someone might use […]
And true to form, it’s something guaranteed to turn a lot of heads as Mike Albertness tells us that Chief Deane has secretly shut down the police department’s Criminal Alien Unit, something he was directed to establish by the Board of County Supervisors in 2006. Details are below the fold…
The Krystal Ball story has generated so much national attention that the availability of this server has been terribly compromised. While it’s nice to get attention from far and wide, BVBL isn’t done for a national audience. There are plenty of other places where items of national interest can be found, and the vast majority […]
It’s always such a treat when “enlightened” leftists drop by to comment after seeing or reading something about me and have their comments immediately snapped up by the comment filters that do their best to keep BVBL somewhat family-friendly. Every once in a while it might be worth it to share with readers these pearls […]
If NLS readers are upset about the previous guest post about islamists trying to locate a mosque at “ground zero” in New York, they can kiss my butt. I remember 9-11, I remember the innocent people who died on that day, and if liberals want to get their panties in a twist because Americans don’t […]
It was a great run, and a terrific service, but Dave Mastio has announced that BlogNetNews.com is shutting down. What a shame.
I’m really going to miss it.
So says Brian Kirwin, anyways. The Daily Press dives into the controversy and digs up some fascinating tidbits about what happened at Freedom Fest, making an already bizarre case even stranger.
It was pretty funny at the time to me. Sarah was giving boilerplate rhetoric from a written speech. Nothing wrong with that, but what […]
Jim Hoeft over at Bearing Drift gets kicked out of the Freedom Fest in Hampton Roads just as Sarah Palin starts speaking???
Beware, patriots. When big-name organizers tightly associated with one political party try to create their own Tea Party type events, don’t ever think that they give a damn about the real grassroots. It’s one […]
According to sitemeter, we crossed the one million visits mark at BVBL this week.
It’s not easy keeping up with maintenance and increasing capacity on a blog aggregator, and these days it appears to be even more challenging than usual. Two aggregators I find particularly useful in keeping up with what others are saying in Virginia have been failing this week, a frustrating return to the days when the only […]
I’m working out the details now, but it looks like I’ll be able to live stream coverage from the PWC Victory Party at L&B’s Pizzaria starting at 7:00PM Tuesday night. Republicans in some of the most-watched districts in Virginia will be there for live interviews, as well as local elected officials and perhaps quite a few surprise guests. […]
The Berry Award winners for 2009 have been announced, and local candidate Rich Anderson has garnered the top prize for this video, entitled “Leadership”. Congratulations to the Anderson campaign for setting the standard this election cycle!
