The Republican Party is in deep trouble. After candidates tell us during their campaigns that they’re actually conservatives, that they’ll fight for principle, that they’ll be reliable and honorable, too many of them retreat right back into doublespeak, back-room dealmaking and abandon their principles at the first opportunity for them to follow through on their […]
If you had to pick between Eric Herr and John Whitbeck to become the next Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, would that decision be as difficult for you as it would be for me? That indeed looks to be the decision the State Central Committee will have to make at their January meeting […]
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 […]
When a group of shady characters filed a lawsuit against the Republican Party of Virginia asserting that it is right and proper to have Democrats determine the outcome of local Republican Party operations, some of the names involved were hardly surprising. Jim Rich, for one, has been amazingly consistent over the years in demonstrating that he believes Democrats should […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

E. W. Jackson visited Old Town Manassas this week and spoke to volunteers and activists about his campaign and his vision for Virginia. This is the guy that some liberals are trying to characterize as some sort of monster, but the truth is quite obviously rather different. Jackson is one of the most […]
Meet the 2013 ticket! Here’s videos of the speeches filmed at the Fairfax rally that was part of the RPV Fly Around that kicked off the day after the Republican Convention.
Ken Cuccinelli for Governor
Delegates going to the Republican Convention in Richmond this weekend are still reeling under all the direct mail, phone calls and email messages the seven Lieutenant Governor and two Attorney General campaigns have been putting out in earnest over the past couple of weeks and having a hard time sorting it all that information out. […]
The Manassas GOP joins the Prince William County Republican Committee in getting their call for a delegate selection process for the 2013 State Republican Convention out the door, and as usual all we hear from the Manassas Park Republican Committee is silence. Those patiently waiting for an update to the Manassas Park Republican Committee’s website for any kind […]
According to NLS, staffers for Jeanmarie Devolites-Davis have been offering bribes to get voters to sign up for the 2013 Republican Convention as delegates for her. As if working overtime to deprive you of your constitutionally-protected right to self-defense wasn’t enough for her, now her campaign is violating Virginia law in an attempt to harm […]
Scott Lingamfelter has bumped up against the folks that can’t distinguish between the principles of libertarianism and the cult of personality that surrounds Ron Paul. In chastising Ron Paul for his recent comment of “live by the sword, die by the sword” about the recent death of a decorated serviceman, a legion of Ron Paul supporters have […]
Sometimes, YouTube is a dubious friend.
In this instance, Lieutenant Governor candidate Pete Snyder posted a video on YouTube, and it helpfully suggested some other “related” videos that I might be interested in watching after I finished with Pete. In this case, there are some news clips, something about a swine flu panic, a cow, a […]
