As expected, Brentsville Supervisor Wally Convington was appointed as a judge during today’s special session of the General Assembly, and with that we almost-officially kick off the race to replace him on the BOCS, pending only the official announcement of a special election.
Republicans will hold a “mass meeting” to select a nominee at Patriot High […]
The easiest way to find someone who utterly doesn’t understand politics is to look at first-time candidates. The ignorant among them put on a tremendous display of what a fundamental lack of understanding looks like, and today’s poster child is none other than Brentsville Supervisor hopeful Scott Jacobs. Willfully breaking local ordinances enacted by the same […]
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 […]
Well, if it wasn’t enough that Youth For Tomorrow was getting paid millions by the federal government to increase the burdens on local schools by pushing illegal aliens every month into our already-overcrowded schools, they apparently want to do it even more. Look at what they filed with the planing commission on June 23rd, soon after […]
The Muslims want to build a new Mosque across the road from Cedar Point Elementary in Nokesville. I’d like to be able to say that I’d support the construction of more houses of worship no matter what religion they’re affiliated with, but before I can I just have to be able to distinguish between this […]
The federal government conservatively estimates we’re going to have 60,000 “Unaccompanied Alien Children” showing up on our southern border this year, and historically 5% of those children are ultimately placed with “sponsors” in Virginia. Right now we have program space available through grants with the US Department of Health and Human Services to handle only […]
There’s not enough money in the state budget for education? I’m calling BS on that tonight after learning that some corporate lobbyist for Microsoft managed to get a budget item inserted that has the Commonwealth buying a slew of tablets to hand out to ninth graders next year. I just can’t wait to see just […]
If we are actually to believe the information we’re getting from the Board of County Supervisors regarding the detention of juvenile illegal aliens by Youth For Tomorrow, it darned well better match up with official documents that are being uncovered regarding the program. Otherwise, reasonable observers are just going to conclude that our government is […]
Coles District Supervisor Marty Nohe is quite eager to assuage the concerns of county residents over the transformation of Youth For Tomorrow into a detention center for juvenile illegal aliens. Just days after the Board of Supervisors promised they’d get to the bottom of things, Nohe made sure to forward talking points from YFT’s executive […]
I asked the Virginia Department of Social Services whether they were involved in placing illegal aliens in Youth For Tomorrow facilities in Prince William County and got this response:
Regarding information on the unaccompanied minor children coming from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. They have instructed us to refer anyone who asks or has comments […]
How in the hell does a sitting Prince William County Supervisor profit from having illegal aliens detained by a non-profit entity in Bristow yet our county government apparently has no idea what is going on? How does this all come about with no information being provided to residents who may be impacted and apparently no […]
Without any public notice, the Youth For Tomorrow program in Bristow is now operating a facility for illegal aliens right here in Prince William County. The information I have suggests approximately 120 “Unaccompanied Alien Children” have been housed for several months now and that YFT has expanded to eight facilities in the county, several of […]
In January The Sheriff pointed out how Prince William County was buying meaningless fraudulent awards from “The Government Finance Officers Association” just so it could issue a press release announcing how great its financial documents were. Yesterday, Prince William County Schools announced that it also has been recognized by this same fraudulent entity in the same way Prince William […]
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 […]
This year’s VEX Robotics state championship at both the High School and Middle School division levels were dominated by a small private school in Manassas. Not some deep-pocketed private school that educates children in state-of-the-art, LEED certified, renewable energy-powered, technology laden campuses delivering a Pearson Education curriculum, but a pretty spartan school that still uses […]
It’s been several years since the FBI moved into their new building in Prince William County, and they’ve finally gotten around to announcing that they’re interested in investigating government corruption. My, will wonders ever cease? A federal agency announces it has an interest in doing its job? What a shocker, I know.
In hopes that there’s actual […]
In Prince William County budget season is once again upon us, and that makes it time for government officials to talk to us about pizza. Apparently we eat too much pizza, as it seems that every year they lecture us that if we do not reduce our pizza intake by some arbitrary amount and hand […]
What will the New Year bring to Prince William County? Hold on to your hats folks, it’s going to be a rather bumpy ride.
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 […]
The likelihood of Brentsville Supervisor Wally Covington getting appointed to a judgeship has had conservatives in Prince William County talking a lot lately, especially after former Planning Commission and Soil and Water Board member Austin Haynes spent a bit of time talking with people about the possibility of running for the spot. Austin is known […]
