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 […]
As campaigns enter their final week it seems that Democrats are starting to grasp just what a debacle they’re potentially facing on November 8th, and it’s monumental. With no time left to adjust, finding themselves way behind in their campaign finances, and saddled with “leadership” of the likes of Brian Moran who is doing just […]
I had the pleasure of getting someone in Centreville who was having a problem with VDOT and Fairfax County in touch with Delegate Tim Hugo recently, because I knew this would be the most effective way of getting it addressed. Tonight I got a nice email back from him, and as I knew would happen, […]
Tonight’s debates between Bob Marshall and Carl Genthner, and between Dick Black and Shawn Miller were rather amusing. Both of these races are between strong, experienced conservatives and starry-eyed Obama supporters bearing no meaningful resume. Many thanks to the Prince William Committee of 100 for sponsoring tonight’s event, as otherwise there would be no opportunity […]
Some of you up in Gainesville that used to be in Delegate Bob Marshall’s district are now in the 40th House District which is ably represented by Tim Hugo. You’ll find that Tim is one of the easiest legislators to get in touch with and is a public servant who is highly dedicated to constituent […]
A lawsuit by Jo-Ann Chase’s campaign alleging that David Ramadan does not live in the 87th District was, as predicted, shot down in court yesterday. Ramadan sought an expedited hearing schedule so this annoyance could be dispensed with before the November elections, confident that this instance of harassment-by-attorney would be easily brushed aside.
This has left Jo-Ann […]
Northern Virginia has been quite the battleground this primary season and has had more than it’s usual share of amusing campaigns. Here’s a roundup of some of the more interesting races as we head into tomorrow’s primary elections.
