While Prince William County Democrats feel it is beyond abhorrent to have a school named after a Virginia Governor who at one time was part of the “massive resistance movement” it doesn’t seem to trouble them at all to raise money for the local party apparatus using the name of a slaveholder who was responsible for atrocities […]
During last night’s PWC School Board meeting the local Democratic Party crossed the Rubicon, and nothing will ever be the same. I highly encourage everyone to watch the footage from that meeting if they haven’t had the opportunity so they can get a sense of the absolute ugliness that will dominate local politics until the next round […]
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 […]
Remember that “Dr. Hampton” who was so worthy of honor that we’d scrub the name of former governor Mills Godwin off the side of one of our public buildings in order to honor him? All because Godwin, who had been supported by the NAACP and upset segregationists so badly that the KKK burned a cross […]
Last night the PWC School Board “resolved” the unusual battle over naming a new elementary school, acceding to a compromise motion from Board member Justin Wilk to erase the name of Governor Mills Godwin from Godwin Middle School and replace it with that of George Hampton, a recent large donor to Democratic Party candidates who […]
Not too coincidentally, we’re told, County Executive Melissa Peacor will be resigning effective January 31st. I suppose we know now the results of the audit regarding staff’s undermining of the County Board’s Rule of Law policy regarding illegal aliens.
If you ever wondered whether your voice makes a difference, well, now you know. It does.
A barely-noticed article on the WJLA website about Prince William County being a “sanctuary jurisdiction” for illegal aliens has ended up uncovering an outrageous abuse of authority by Prince William County CXO Melissa Peacor and Police Chief Stephan Hudson. The 2007 “Rule of Law Resolution” that defined county policy on the issue, a policy publicly […]
BREAKING… YES IT IS TRUE!
WJLA is reporting that Prince William County does not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and will not comply with criminal or civil immigration detainers. After months of public debate and citizen input, such a change, if true, would represent a dramatic shift in policy done behind closed doors and with no […]
Here’s where things get interesting - in the races that decide what your property taxes should be and how they’re used. Prince William County has some major challenges ahead and we really need some changes if we’re ever going to be able to address them. Here’s how you might be able to make those changes […]
These are the races that are bombarding you with radio and TV ads, stuffing your mailboxes with fliers, and generally doing more to confuse you about the facts with their campaigns than enlightening you on anything. Don’t worry, I’ll sort out this mess for you without subjecting you to sheer partisanship and even if you […]
For the second installment in this series, let’s take a look at the often-underappreciated elections happening in Prince William, ones that have a far larger impact on our lives than some of the legislative races that we like to talk about more often. Those that hold the Sheriff, Clerk of the Court and Commonwealth’s Attorney […]
With so many races on the ballot it might be a little hard to keep track of the candidates for School Board in Prince William County, but given how the Board is in charge of a budget greater than what the Board of County Supervisors spend, it’s arguably among the more import votes you can […]
So much for the Democrat narrative that Republicans are the one’s waging a “war on women”…
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.

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 […]
So the Ashley Madison data hits the interwebs and what do we find? Of course we find a few of our glorious elected officials in Prince William County establishing paid accounts on a website for people trying to cheat on their spouses! It’s actually quite a relief to find so few of them on the list, but […]
When the Prince William Board of County Supervisors met in closed session during their last meeting to discuss what the board’s official response would be to Melissa Peacor instigating a criminal investigation of a private citizen for criticizing her, it failed to identify, as it is required under law, what provision of Virginia law authorized […]
Where does Mrs. Gilkerson, principal of Glenkirk Elementary, reside?
Where do her children attend school?
How does that happen? Does the school administration intend to tell the people who are paying their salaries what their senior employees are doing, and how they will address those questions?
As they come in…
John Guevara narrowly wins in Sully District of Fairfax
Steve Chapman (?!!??) wins in Woodbridge
Michele McQuigg Wins Clerk of the Court
Glen Hill wins Sheriff
Stewart wins BOCS Chairman
Marty Nohe wins in Coles
Ruth Anderson wins in Occoquan
For many of you out there, no political race excites so little of your attention as the Clerk of the Court. Many of you don’t interact with it; heck, many don’t even have a solid idea even of what it does. Despite the understandable ignorance of many, it’s a pretty important job that has the […]
