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 […]
Funny how the supposed “War On Women” Democrats keep harping about is apparently sponsored in part by Democratic Senator Chuck Colgan.
If you’d like to see this running on cable this week, swing by this fundraising page. Every time it runs, a Democrat’s head explodes.
Delegate Bob Marshall has filed suit against the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority saying that the process being used to select projects for funding does not comply with the law passed by the General Assembly. In essence, NVTA has ignored input from their town hall meetings from residents, failed to evaluate the congestion or safety improvements that projects […]
I saw on facebook that Jeremy McPike was going to have a campaign event at the Dale City Volunteer Fire Department tonight that was billed as “Zumba With The Candidate”, and I just wasn’t going to miss this. I’ve never seen a candidate dress up in a spandex outfit and lead an exercise class before, […]
The defeat of House Transportation Committee Chairman Joe May by Dave Larock in the 33rd District is being touted by some as an unprecedented revolt by the grassroots against Republican tax-hikers. It is not. Back in 2003, then-House Transportation Committee Chairman Jack Rollison was defeated in a primary by Jeff Frederick after Rollison played the […]
With porn shop owner Paige Critchley announcing her support for the Joe May campaign in a comment here on BVBL, we thought it might be a nice gesture to offer the May campaign some graphic design help with their next mail piece which really ought to feature this surprise development. It’s not every day that […]
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 […]
