A few days ago I estimated the cost of having the federal government dump juvenile illegal aliens in Virginia based on statistics from a few years ago. Today the federal Department of Health And Human Services released new data and the problem is quite evidently worse than I thought. Instead of getting about 3,000 juvenile […]
One of the questions state and local government has refused to answer thus far is what will the impacts be on our local communities as a result of non-profits getting on the massive money train of the Federal “Unaccompanied Alien Children” program. It’s hard to assess them all, but again, state, federal and local governments […]
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 […]
Former Lt. Governor Bill Bolling suddenly gotten quite concerned about cross-over voting in Primary elections after the defeat of Eric Cantor in the 7th District, and despite there being no evidence that Democrats played any significant role in that nomination contest Bolling nevertheless jumped on the “party registration” bandwagon in an op-ed recently. Quite predictably this has gotten heads […]
Republicans managed to thwart Terry McAuliffe’s effort to unconstitutionally expand government, or so the party line goes. Unfortunately, that’s not quite what happened, and such a viewpoint simply puts blinders on Republicans who don’t yet fathom just how difficult it will be to actually implement a budget this year. Get ready for absolute chaos folks, […]
The conclusion of another state-wide Republican convention, one that nominated the candidate that nearly all of the anti-convention activists hoped would win, hasn’t much abated the whining from them that we shouldn’t ever have a state-wide convention again. They got what they wanted as an outcome, but it isn’t enough. They’ll be satisfied with nothing […]
On Friday and Saturday, a few of my fellow conservatives will be travelling down to Roanoke for the Republican State Convention to select a nominee to challenge Mark Warner’s Senate seat. In a year where there’s a pretty pitched battle between establishment moderates and the conservative grassroots, this might be a far more interesting convention […]
Following the drama of the RPV Executive Director hosting amnesty activists two days after taking the job comes now rumors of him being the subject of an active investigation involving insider trading. The story — still unconfirmed — is that during his tenure on the Louisa County Board of Supervisors he became aware of an economic development […]
… is that we might never be subject to the inane, incoherent rantings of Gerald Geddes ever again. If ever there was a person not suited for campaigning for public office, he would be the guy.
Of equal note, the excellent Suzanne Scholte is almost guaranteed to be the Republican nominee to take on Gerry Connolly […]
Soon after Mark Herring became our Attorney General it became obvious that he’s much more of a politician than a lawyer. Just how bad a lawyer he is hasn’t been quite so obvious perhaps until today when he publicly released privileged correspondence because it had significance for the leftist political agenda to which he has […]
Tomorrow Republicans (and doubtless a few Democrats) will go to polling locations across the 10th Congressional District to select a Republican nominee for Congress to replace Frank Wolf. By all appearances this is going to be a not terribly competitive matchup between the establishment’s well-funded candidate Barbara Comstock and the typically under-funded Conservative Bob Marshall.
The truth (is now) out there. Contrary to his recent claims to the contrary, Shaun Kenny is actually on the Eric Cantor and Barbara Comstock payroll, and doubtless we will discover in short order what exactly his financial relationships with Ed Gillespie is as well. Secrets don’t last very long in politics, and lies have a […]
Yeah, just in case anyone was under the impression that our new Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia was serving the interests of Virginia Republicans by inviting these folks into his headquarters for an unprecedented “unscheduled” meeting, here’s what “Fast For Families” is touting on their twitter feed.
Sure, it’s a good idea to […]
The newly-minted Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia sure didn’t waste any time looking for a conservative pulpit to talk about Republican values.
“This is not an issue of right or left, this is an issue of right and wrong. And that’s what we need to hear… If we are going to have any sort […]
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 […]
As the Communications Arm of the Barbara Comstock campaign continues in their drive to crucify anyone who stands in the way of Comstock’s coronation, we might want to step back for a moment and consider just what the long-term impact might be of this new, leftist-style penchant for wanting to destroy good and decent conservatives with whom […]
It seems some bloggers aren’t quite as interested in their readers knowing the truth as I am, so as much as I don’t want to write this, I really feel I have no other choice.
The next time you see some blog post supporting Barbara Comstock or trashing her opponents with silly arguments, make sure you ask yourself this question: is the person writing this article on Barbara Comstock’s payroll? Or is the local self-styled pundit who is clogging up a comments thread being paid to do so by a […]
Subject to a recount, Senator Mark Herring has been elected Attorney General of Virginia and Senator Ralph Northam has been elected as Lieutenant Governor. That these “progressive” warriors will exercise executive and legislative power in Virginia is a sobering thing, but there’s a chance to limit the havoc they’ll be able to wreak by flipping […]
I am sick of seeing the thirty second propaganda spots running on cable TV that advocate the Outer Beltway, ads that are being financed by YOUR taxpayer dollars. Government using your money to convince you that developers need you to spend money for their benefit is an absolute outrage.
If you want to help support an effort to […]
