You don’t have to get elected in order to abuse the public trust. Just ask Jeremy McPike. You can do that from any position in government.
Jeremy McPike works for the City of Alexandria and is the Democrat running for the 31st House District, which is currently represented by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter. Either he’s getting a […]
Established in 1989, the Carter-Knight Freedom Fund Award is the most prestigious honor bestowed by the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund. Named for Harlon Carter, founding Director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, and George Knight, founder of the Fund, it was created to honor those who demonstrate exemplary support for the constitutional and […]
Once again Bob Marshall proves that he understands Virginia law better than anyone else in the General Assembly. This time, Marshall suspected that the establishment of a “Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission” that had the power to enroll the Commonwealth in an expansion of the federal medicaid program was a violation of the Constitution of […]
Well, that sure was a quick campaign. Donna Sellinger, whose campaign kickoff was just last Sunday, has announced on twitter tonight that she will no longer be seeking election in the 13th House District. This is the second Democrat candidate in two weeks to begin and end their campaign in this district without any public […]
There’s probably no one in the General Assembly more hated by the homosexual lobby than Delegate Bob Marshall, so each election year whichever far-left wingnut in the district despises Marshall the most will mount a campaign to try to unseat him. This wonderfully amusing bi-annual comedy to see if the Washington Blade’s endorsed candidate, backed […]
What if the Prince William County Board of Supervisors had the power to enact a local income tax to support additional spending without any voter referendum at all, and that tax could not be repealed at some later date unless some other source of revenue was made available to fund the spending that tax enabled? […]
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 […]
Once again I am pleased to be in the house district represented by Delegate Bob Marshall. According to NBC4, Marshall has submitted a bill to have Virginia schools designate staff members who would carry concealed firearms on school property, and be in a position to respond to emergencies. While the proposal is certain to draw […]
The WashPo reports that Delegate Scott Lingamfelter has filed paperwork to run for Lieutenant Governor in 2013 and setting up an interesting case where two candidates from the same locality are vying for the same statewide office. This certainly invites other potential candidates from elsewhere around the state to enter the race, perhaps as many as three […]
Call your Delegates and Senators right away and urge them to put a stop to efforts to appoint a homosexual activist to a District Court as a judge. Delegate Bob Marshall has proposed an amendment to the legislation appointing these judges that is scheduled on Monday, May 14th and unless that amendment prevails Virginia will […]
The House of Delegates is at it again. After seeing delegates use their time during the short session to talk about how their wives aren’t putting out, or to catcall “shoot him” at other members during a floor speech, they’ve sunk to a new low today.
Delegate Bob Marshall responds here to some of the hyperbole coming out of Democrats and their mainstream media acolytes regarding HB1. Nice mix of humor and facts here. Not that I expect the left to ever acknowledge the truth here, but it would be nice to see them make a policy argument other […]
Delegate and Pastor Luke Torian should be facing some tough questions from his congregation this Sunday.
So, when Luke Torian had an opportunity to stand up for human life and affirm the teachings of Jesus Christ that he purports to preach to his flock, he didn’t. Apparently his Democrat special interest donors would allow him to take a walk […]
Dianne Blais might not have achieved much success in her run for Delegate in the 40th District, but she did manage to finish within the top three in a nationwide contest for the worst videos of 2011. Her third-place finish in the Sucky Awards is truly a notable accomplishment and for that she well deserves our heartfelt […]
If there were a contest each General Assembly session for the dumbest bill of the year, HB 19 would be a very strong contender this time around. Seriously, are we really going to be giving people $8,000 tax breaks to help blast minuscule portions of people’s earthly remains into space?
Delegate Bob Marshall has filed an interesting bill to ensure that unborn children are recognized as legal persons, setting off a firestorm among the left. While the intent behind this is laudable, and it’s that very idea that drives those who want to protect the interests of abortionists crazy, I don’t think anyone on the left has […]
This was a race that shouldn’t have been anywhere near close. A strong conservative, running in a highly conservative district encompassing a swath of mostly Loudoun County and some of Prince William County, narrowly ekes out a 51 vote victory margin against a no-name liberal who runs a weak campaign amidst the biggest Republican wave […]
Lots of campaign activity across Northern Virginia, especially with Governor McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bolling, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, RPV Chairman Pat Mullins and Senate Minority Leader Tommy Norment swinging by campaign rallies across the area this weekend. As these races enter their final days, some races are tightening and you have an opportunity to make […]
Given that the House of Delegates has a substantial majority that is likely to grow to between sixty-four and sixty-six seats after this election, voters have to understand the difference between electing someone who will be relegated to a powerless minority and electing someone who will be in a position to make things happen for […]
Ever since “used condom girl” showed up to take the reigns of the Roy Coffey campaign, I knew Scott Lingamfelter would be in good shape. After precisely guiding the Jeanette Rishell campaign into a political smoking crater that effectively ended Rishell’s hopes of ever being an elected official, the Coffey campaign seems to be a reprise […]
