Despite all the assurances that Republicans made that they’d stop President Obama’s ridiculously detrimental amnesty for illegal aliens and that they’d stop the horrible impacts that ObamaCare is delivering on us, they’ve done nothing but allow these programs to continue while the federal budget inches ever-closer to bankruptcy. Despite all the assurances Republicans made to […]
When Brian Schoeneman decided to carpet-bag up to Sully District in order to run for the Fairfax Board of Supervisors (a plan Democrats were apparently in the know about in August of 2014) it presented an interesting test: can a blogger credibly run for public office? Would the volume of public blog postings and comments prove themselves […]
This November we have the opportunity to retire Gerry Connolly from Congress. This is the person who should replace him.
As the Prince William County Schools and the Board of County Supervisors continue to peddle the line that the “Unaccompanied Alien Children” program isn’t causing any “problems” for schools and other local government services, they’re resolutely refusing to release any information on the impacts this influx of juvenile illegal aliens to support their claims. They […]
I hope that most of you, unlike myself, have not been subjected to the ongoing clown show that has been the communications effort from Gerald Geddes. His bid for the Republican nomination in the 11th Congressional District of Virginia has been an ongoing demonstration of what happens when an idiot campaigner is armed with an […]
Frank Wolf has announced he will not seek re-election in 2014, which is guaranteed to kick off quite a contest to see who the Republican nominee will be.
Does Barbara Comstock have this locked down, or will there actually be a contest? We’re going to find out pretty soon.
UPDATE: Dick Black is looking at a run […]
We’ve talked a lot about transportation during the past decade at the state and local level, and we’ve poured a huge amount of borrowed money and tax increases into funding transportation. Is any of that going to actually solve anything?
You’ve no doubt heard that Republicans are supposedly engaged in some kind of “war on women” because they believe in the sanctity of life, aren’t interested in providing free birth control as an entitlement, or aren’t willing to see taxpayer dollars used to fund abortions. There actually does seem to be an effort to subjugate […]
As NLS puts it, this is totally unacceptable.
The Moran clan have been embarrassing Virginians with their out of control behavior for far too long. It’s well past time the whole bunch was retired from politics.
UPDATE: And this happens on a day when Jim Moran decries, of all things, voter fraud. Go figure.

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 […]
I get that candidates in a convention are going to try to make the rules as favorable to them as possible. That’s simply part of the political game. What I don’t get is when an incumbent district chairman is reported to have made a last-minute change in the rules that contradicts what was specified in […]
Whooda thunk? MS-13 gang-bangers using day laborer sites to pimp fourteen year old prostitution slaves to illegal aliens? And to think that the open borders crowd in Centreville just opened a day laborer site to make this kind of human trafficking even more convenient! That’s liberal progress for ya. It’s all about the children.
Dianne Blais might not have achieved much success in her run for Delegate in the 40th District, but she did manage to finish within the top three in a nationwide contest for the worst videos of 2011. Her third-place finish in the Sucky Awards is truly a notable accomplishment and for that she well deserves our heartfelt […]
I remember getting quite a bit of grief after reporting that Fairfax Supervisor John Cook (R) was cozying up to the SEIU during the last election cycle, but my hopes in doing that were that at the very least the critique might discourage him from helping this public sector union gain more power at the expense of […]
2011 was entirely boring and uneventful in Northern Virginia. Nothing at all of interest happened, except for floods, earthquakes, a furiously silly election season, the biggest historical reenactment and anniversary in 50 years, mass murders, redistricting, and well, okay. So 2011 wasn’t exactly boring.
With apologies to Dave Barry, here we go…
Lots of campaign activity across Northern Virginia, especially with Governor McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bolling, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, RPV Chairman Pat Mullins and Senate Minority Leader Tommy Norment swinging by campaign rallies across the area this weekend. As these races enter their final days, some races are tightening and you have an opportunity to make […]
Make sure everyone you know in Fairfax County gets to the polls a week from now and votes for Spike Williams.
This might have been a blog post, but it seemed to lend itself much better to a short film documentary format. You can’t quite capture with just written words what a difference it makes to a small business owner who feels like government bureaucrats are going to screw him over when a local elected […]
I don’t want to make it difficult for immigrants, who for a variety of perfectly legitimate reasons, find it difficult to participate in elections if their grasp of English isn’t what it should be. I still have to wonder though why Spanish language ballots are required for a county under federal law if the Census […]
