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 […]
A credible source has tipped me off that in the next few days Delegate Bob Marshall will announce a run for the 10th Congressional District, having obtained the level of grassroots support he feels he needs to run a strong and credible campaign for Congress. Barbara Comstock may well have a real race on her […]
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 […]
When the family members left behind after this Administration abandoned their sons, fathers and husbands in Bengazi went to talk to Congress, Gerry Connolly walked out on them. Ambassador Chris Stevens, US Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods died during an hours-long battle with terrorists, abandoned by an administration […]
As NLS puts it, this is totally unacceptable.
The Moran clan have been embarrassing Virginians with their out of control behavior for far too long. It’s well past time the whole bunch was retired from politics.
UPDATE: And this happens on a day when Jim Moran decries, of all things, voter fraud. Go figure.
Like quite a few other Virginians, I recently got my new voter identification card in the mail (no, not the one Bob McDonnell will be sending out again) because due to redistricting I’m being moved into the 1st District from the 10th District. I always liked pulling the lever for Frank Wolf and found him […]
After utterly zero consideration of the enormous flaws of the congressional redistricting map commonly known as “the incumbent protection plan,” Governor McDonnell has signed it into law. Thank you so much, Mr. Governor and our representatives in the General Assembly, for rolling over on this tragic stupidity so Congressmen can feel more safe and comfortable.
Just guess who Democrat Ann Wheeler picked to host a fundraiser for her on October 16th? Here’s a clue:
On occasion Congressman Gerry Connolly is prone to moments of honesty that are instructive for conservatives, and it’s important to pay attention when they happen. If we can ignore for a moment the ridiculous mischaracterization of the issue he was dealing with at the time, this is the absolute blueprint for defending liberty in Virginia - be […]
I was at an event in Clifton today doing some work for Delegate Tim Hugo. Part of the festivities involved local dignitaries, and Congressman Gerry Connolly was there just long enough to make an appearance and then bolt, as usual. Before Connolly left I saw him pigeon-hole Delegate Hugo and launch into a heated conversation, and […]
Inspiration from a press release from Vaughn for Congress.

While Congressman Jim Moran’s assault on the military and its veterans went viral Friday, April 8, one day following a town hall meeting held in Alexandria at Hammond Middle School, nary a word appeared in The Washington Post.
Moran treated Wayne Tunick, a disabled 27-year veteran rudely following an important question […]
The new Congressional redistricting map is out and it turns out to be even a little stranger than the map we were teased with earlier. Folks in my neighborhood, those west of Manassas and south of Rt. 29 are all in the 1st Congressional district, currently represented by Rob Wittman. At least we didn’t get […]
Just when there’s a budget crisis in Congress and the possibility of a shutdown and default are looming, Congressman Gerry Connolly emerged from his burrow to announce six more weeks of silliness in the greatest deliberative body in the world. Not content with defending enormous deficit spending, Connolly is proposing we change the short title […]
The so-called “DREAM Act”, a nightmare back-door amnesty for illegal aliens, is now on the floor of the lame duck Congress, which suggests that Nancy Pelosi has the votes to pass it. While it’s being billed as a way to give amnesty to minors, what it actually does is set up a mechanism to allow […]
Did Gerry Connolly vote for Nancy Pelosi to be House Minority Leader? He still won’t tell his constituents!
See if you can get him to tell you by contacting him at his DC office at 202-225-1492, his Fairfax office at 703-256-3071 or his Prince William office at 703-670-4989. If you don’t get an answer at one, […]
Today House Democrats chose Nancy Pelosi to be their Minority Leader in the next Congress. Finding no announcement by Gerry Connolly about how he voted, several friends took it upon themselves to contact Gerry’s office and ask whether Gerry cast his vote for Heath Schuler, or for Nancy Pelosi. Strangely enough, staffers refused to disclose […]
So after looking for every potential avenue for optimism and finding none, Keith Fimian has done what Democrats rarely do and conceded the election even though he could have legally called for a recount. Although we wish the outcome was different, we can take comfort knowing that we nominated a candidate with the class to […]
Are we looking at a battle royale over voting irregularities in the 11th District? From the looks of Fairfax GOP Chairman Anthony Bedell’s email, it certainly seems that way.
On election night the State Board of Elections reported that they had 26,000 absentee ballots yet to tabulate in the 11th District, even though their website showed they had tabulated the absentee precincts. Later, they said they had counted all 26,000 ballots in this tweet:
Now official: In Virginia’s 11th district race the 26,000 outstanding […]
