When illegal aliens come to America supposedly searching “for a better life,” might that include taxpayer-funded admission to performances of the Manassas Symphony orchestra? Apparently it does. If you’re one of the juvenile illegal aliens being temporarily housed (courtesy of your tax dollars) at Youth For Tomorrow, a new grant from the taxpayer-funded National Endowment […]
This open letter from Ralph Stevenson, Chairman of Prince William Citizens for Balanced Growth, should be required reading for anyone considering voting for Chairman of the Prince William County Board of County Supervisors in 2015. There’s not much chance that Corey Stewart will take note of what is in this letter, but voters definitely […]
Not much in the way of surprises at this evening’s debate, with Jeanine Lawson showing she knows what she’s talking about, Eric Young showing that in a lot of ways he doesn’t, and Scott Jacobs clearly demonstrating that he doesn’t want to know what he’s talking about. A few observations might be useful if […]

So, it’s an amazing but true story, one that once again calls into question the leadership of Prince William County Schools. Carolyn Custard, the Director of the Office of Student Services, throws one hell of a party (or at least she thinks she does). The only problem is that it […]
So you’re moderately active in politics and wouldn’t mind lending a few hours to volunteer for a campaign where your contribution might make a difference? Yes, there are opportunities where your time won’t be wasted.
This Saturday Youth For Tomorrow is going to have their “Country Fair and Auction” to help support all that good work that this celebrity-laden outfit is supposedly doing. They’re going to put on a nice dog-and-pony-show to tell folks about how they help troubled kids and need your charitable donations to continue their godly work.
When Scott Jacobs got the news that he was disqualified as a Republican candidate for Brentsville Supervisor because he failed to file on time as a candidate for the Republican Mass Meeting, he realistically had three options to consider. He could endorse Jeanine “for the good of the party” and recover some of the goodwill […]
I visited with Scott Jacobs today, originally to confirm that it was one of his employees pictured on Virginia Virtucon taking down one of Jeanine Lawson’s signs. Scott was still in the midst of trying to figure out what to do in the wake of his campaign essentially coming to an abrupt end after neglecting to file […]
Hey, Scott Jacobs! This is just a friendly head’s-up that I know who is in this picture committing a Class 1 Misdemeanor on behalf of your campaign, and based on just how close they are to you that it would be pretty laughable to say that you didn’t have anything at all to do with […]
Members of a political party should have the opportunity to choose whoever they think is the best candidate to run as their nominee in a general election. I can’t even imagine a circumstance that would cause anyone to disagree with such a basic premise, one that’s part of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. […]
This November we have the opportunity to retire Gerry Connolly from Congress. This is the person who should replace him.
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 […]
