50th HOD District Category Archives
So how many House Republicans in Virginia want to help leftist New York City Mayor Bill Deblasio collect punitive taxes on New Yorkers? As it turns out, there’s a lot.
We’re going to make it a felony offense for someone to purchase a legal product in Virginia with the intent of transporting it to somewhere else, where […]
Jackson Miller eloquently speaks for all of us here. These tragedies have to stop.
Two days before an illegal alien goes on a murderous rampage in Manassas that leaves three people dead, Delegate Patrick Hope of Arlington tries to argue that it is unfair to have illegal aliens who commit felonies held in our jails and that law enforcement doesn’t have the resources to detain and process for deportation […]
Here’s a fascinating exchange with open borders advocate Delegate Scott Surovell who displays a stunning ignorance about the illegal immigration problem that is typical of the apologists for illegal immigration. After waxing poetic with some utter nonsense that the armed forces somehow allow illegal aliens to enlist, Delegate Jackson Miller sets him straight with an […]
Delegate Jackson Miller recently had a chance to debate someone from the open borders crowd on Fox & Friends regarding a proposed bill that would require legal presence by attendees at Virginia’s public universities and colleges. Given that taxpayers subsidize these institutions pretty heavily, it makes sense that the slots be filled by citizens, legal […]
When was the last time you saw an elected official tell someone the gravy train ain’t stoppin’ at this station?
Delegate Jackson Miller had well over 200 people pack a Manassas firehouse for a campaign event this evening, complete with a visit from Governor Bob McDonnell. What I find fascinating about something like this is here’s someone who gets top-flight support from the Governor, raises a ton of money as his sponsor list for the […]
While many eyes are on the current 13th House District represented by Bob Marshall that will split into two districts in 2011, another district in Prince William County will undergo significant changes due to redistricting and that will be the 50th District, currently represented by Delegate Jackson Miller. Currently the 50th has a little under […]
“A mixed blessing is when your mother in law drives off a cliff, but does it in your new Cadillac.”
On the good news front, I don’t think there’s any way we’re going to have to deal with Jeanette Rishell as a candidate ever again. On the bad news front, Jackson Miller may not have […]
So what does Jeanette Rishell do when she’s got a huge inventory of yard signs and hardly any people willing to put them in their yards? Why, you litter them all along Route 234 in violation of Prince William County ordinances, hoping the county’s understaffed zoning enforcement department won’t have time to remove them before the election! […]
The question on everyone’s mind seems to be not whether Jeanette Rishell stands a chance to unseat Delegate Jackson Miller (she doesn’t), but why in the world she would try. Two years ago she got thumped by over twenty points in a campaign that was a complete embarassment to her and other Democrats in the […]
Months after the story broke, the News & Messenger finally devoted all of four sentences to a controversy between a candidate for the House of Delegates and this local blogger that involves First Amendment issues, homosexual conduct and free porn. What local journalism has sunk to in these days of fiscal retrenchment, while biased editors who will […]
Here’s an interesting story about the 50th District race I heard this afternoon that readers might find somewhat amusing.
Jeanette Rishell has about eight paid staffers working for her campaign, about the same staff size you might expect in a congressional campaign, but she’s hugely loaded up with these staffers in her quixotic attempt to do better than […]
The Jeanette Rishell campaign is handing out these flyers today in Manassas Park, claiming that she is endorsed by the Virginia Education Association. Only she’s not. Her opponent, Delegate Jackson Miller is the one who the VEA endorsed candidate in this race. Who would have thought that Jeanette Rishell’s campaign would sink so low as […]
It’s pretty funny to watch Jeanette Rishell try to squirm her way out of being caught in lies in the past while talking about how honest and trustworthy she’ll supposedly be in the future. Not too long ago she talked about maintaining the tradition of the late Harry Parrish, but right […]
Working on a bunch of projects right now that don’t afford me much opportunity to talk about how Jeanette Rishell looked like a complete goof at the Prince William Committee of 100 debate tonight, and about how John Bell got taken to school by Bob Marshall. I saw some readers in the audience, and this […]
So how do Democrats view the chances of Jeanette Rishell this November? The “Swing State Project” which is tracking targeted House of Delegates races has decided to drop the race from their list, saying “Rishell’s campaign is terrible.” What, did they expect something different this year?
Campaign finance reports are now available, and in Prince William County races there are only a few surprises. Most of these are falling in pretty much where I expected, but there are a few surprises here.
The Manassas News & Messenger’s editorial today points out that just like last year, when the campaign of Jeanette Rishell couldn’t tell the truth to voters about Delegate Jackson Miller’s voting record, she’s not being honest about his campaign this year. For someone who proclaims to be standing up for Virginia families, you’d think that she could at […]
An activist for the Jeanette Rishell campaign, who also happens to be in charge of setting up a debate between Rishell and Delegate Jackson Miller for the NAACP feeds a story to the Rishell campaign that Delegate Miller is refusing to attend an NAACP-sposored debate. True to form, the consistently hapless Rishell campaign issues a […]
