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. We […]
From the fine folks at the Manassas Tea Party:
Defying not only the recommendations of its own Manassas City Manager but also the pleas of hundreds of taxpayers, the Manassas City Council proposed a massive 10.4% tax bill increase for FY14. This huge hike is attributed to four City Council members seeking to hyper accelerate the […]
Buffalo Wild Wings, you are the stupidest business in Virginia and I sincerely hope you go bankrupt soon.
Eight Prince William County Police officers were refused service at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wednesday, apparently because they had their weapons displayed. (From Manassas Park Patch)
I don’t want explanations, or an apology, I just want this business gone.

Earlier this month the Metropolitan Washington Council Of Governments approved a resolution calling for more gun control which has prompted a few localities in Virginia to threaten that they will withhold their annual dues payments until the resolution, which has pretty much nothing to do with the mission of the MWCOG anyways, is repealed. Today I’ve learned that Manassas […]
Where do El Salvadorans go when fleeing justice in their home country? Apparently they run to Manassas. But do they get extradited back to their home country to face charges? Apparently not.
InsideNova reports on the arrest of 34-year-old Melvin Noe Sanchez-Izaguirre today, who had previously been deported in 2012 which would make his re-entry a felony […]
The Manassas GOP joins the Prince William County Republican Committee in getting their call for a delegate selection process for the 2013 State Republican Convention out the door, and as usual all we hear from the Manassas Park Republican Committee is silence. Those patiently waiting for an update to the Manassas Park Republican Committee’s website for any kind […]

While a needed step in the right direction, School Superintendent Magouyrk’s draft budget to reduce costs requires some analysis. As usual, the devil is in the details.
Ten years ago Jose Oswaldo Reyes Alfaro, an illegal alien from El Salvador, was ordered deported. He was subsequently arrested twice, but never turned over to ICE for deportation. In February, 2011, he murdered three people in Manassas with a .38 caliber revolver, wounded two others including a 15 year-old girl, and attacked another — […]
Candidates and campaigns win elections in the environment that exists while voting is conducted. While that statement isn’t terribly revealing it points out the three primary components of an outcome. Activists like myself can’t change the candidates (at least after they’re nominated), the environment is largely out of our control, but we do impact campaigns […]
In addition to the Presidential and US Senate elections, about which I’m pretty sure voters have pretty heard their fill already, Manassas City has a ballot initiative specific to the city this year. The question involves moving municipal elections from May, when they happen now, to Novembers when they’d be down-ticket from a Presidential election. If […]
The Obama administration’s announcement that it would unilaterally terminate the Section 287(g) program at the end of this year has plenty of people wondering what impacts this may have, and what can be done to buttress the rule of law that this administration seems so fundamentally disinterested in supporting. The press has done little more […]
Mitt Romney comes to town, and the place just goes nuts. There’s genuine appeal in the area for Romney and an extreme distaste for Obama to help draw a crowd, but the announcement of Paul Ryan as Romney’s running mate definitely put the excitement level over the top and today’s event was bigger and more […]
Want to send Obama a message that Virginia is going to repudiate his candidacy? Mitt Romney is coming to the Harris Pavilion in Manassas on Saturday, August 11th. Get your tickets here.
Nice to see our Republican nominee come to town!
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 […]
Finally, the long-awaited installation of Manassas’ contribution to Virginia sculptural artistry. Brought to you courtesy of a $1,200 state VTA grant and an undocumented quantity of effort and resources courtesy of the City of Manassas. This magnificent ouvre is right on par with the logo for “Discover Prince William,” solidifying our community as the very hub of artistic excellence […]
Apparently, this concept rendering represents Manassas City’s grand plan to promote tourism in Old Town. I can just imagine what kind of excitement and enthusiasm this will generate across the country, as people flock to come see that yes indeed, we in this part of the world can spell.
And produce art, at fairly substantial […]
This one goes out to the leftist wackjob, ridden with grief about the performance of Democrats in Manassas City elections, who whines that people are starting to wake up about this “hate filled blog.” It’s only taken them seven years to do so. Sheesh.
This was the first city election in several cycles that was little […]
Your kids are kidnapped, you give up your high paying job to go rescue them in a foreign country and suffer terrible financial consequences as a result. Then some miscreant decides to attack you for having gone into debt at one point in order to save your children. Yep, that’s how afraid some establishment types in Manassas […]
