My social media feed today gave me this utterly awful demonstration of the lightning fast decay our collective moral conscience has suffered in just these last few months. As a conservative who reveres the ideals our nation was founded upon I have always believed that the enduring principles of our forefathers would be understood well […]
This week Virginia Republicans vote for their nominee for President of the United States. That contest has effectively narrowed to a choice between Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, and the choice the Commonwealth makes couldn’t be any more important to the future of our country.
Conventional wisdom holds that Donald Trump is probably going […]
Did you notice how expensive candy has gotten this Halloween? You can thank government for that.
In honor of Speaker John Boehner announcing he will retire from Congress, it seems to be a good time to remind people about the motivations of some of those who helped encourage Boehner to make this decision.

One of the projects I’ve been working on lately with the Virginia First Foundation and the Virginia Christian Alliance is a documentary where Pastors talk about the implications of the Supreme Court’s recent decision on marriage and how the Christian community should respond. It’s not a hypothetical that […]
Ben Carson seems to have kicked off a pretty contentious debate this week with his comments about Islam and whether it is compatible with political leadership in the country. Such a subject probably deserves a more informed discussion than the knee-jerk responses that some on either side of this have been willing to offer, […]
As we are graced this weekend with yet another local story of a violent crime perpetrated by illegal alien MS-13 gang members, I can only hope that the questions it raises (once again) are useful as we try to figure out which one of the Republican presidential candidates speaks for citizens, and how many of […]

Anything that might possibly offend the delicate sensitivities of liberal statists is under assault across the country, and right here in Northern Virginia the target-du-jour is a small gun store that would like to expand their business. Myself and another strong supporter of liberty and […]
Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore announced this weekend in front of several hundred conservatives that he is considering a run for the Republican nomination for President. While Gilmore didn’t have any campaign staff in tow at the Leadership Institute’s “Conservative Soiree” in Centreville, he was happy to tell a number of conservative leaders gathered […]
If more Republican candidates would engage their audiences with anything approaching this level of hope and optimism, our government would look a lot different than it does now.
Funding for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has of late been turned into political chip in a high stakes poker game. And it’s all because the President has strained the bounds of his legal authority to protect from deportation millions of people unlawfully present in this country. These people, who otherwise would […]
Proposed legislation calling for a “Convention of the States” to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution has been the subject of a lot of discussion lately, and rightly so. Having never actually been convened before in the 226-year history of our Republic and with no legal mechanisms in place to govern what it would look […]
Are you one of the families that used to be able to afford health insurance before Obamacare loaded the marketplace up with regulations that increased premiums and made deductibles skyrocket? We are. We’re one of thousands of families across the Commonwealth that don’t get health insurance through an employer’s benefits plan and have to weigh […]
Those concerned about how illegal aliens are eligible to obtain special privileges not available to citizens because of their unlawful status may take heart in the fact that when these privileges involve rights protected under the U.S. Constitution, the grant of this special treatment is likely in violation of federal law. Not only that, but […]
Gee, I wish someone would have presented these arguments to Democrats when we were debating whether to enact TrainWreckCare. Had someone pointed these arguments out to President Obama, that it is unfair to penalize people for not buying mandatory insurance they cannot afford, maybe things would have turned out differently.
Sunday morning’s veterans rally at the World War II memorial became the spark for a peaceful revolt against the tyranny and oppression of the Obama administration, as veterans tore down barriers intended to keep them away from the very memorials that honor their service and dragged them to the White House. They stormed beaches, they […]
With the shutdown of the federal government comes the closure of Manassas Battlefield National Park. You’d expect from this that the doors would be locked at the visitor’s center, that gates might be closed, and that there wouldn’t be any park service employees at the park. On that last point though, you’d be wrong. They […]
Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about what happens inside in the area’s houses of worship. The faithful does what it wants to do, and we don’t concern ourselves with it. That’s how it should be, up until we start seeing these facilities used by agents of hostile foreign regimes. If a […]
Senator Tim Kaine provided this important message to his constituents and the country from the floor of the United States Senate the other day.
I’m certain all of his constituents felt very encouraged hearing this.
