In response to his party’s caucus shrinking to its lowest number in over 80 year, Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY, outgoing Congressional Campaign Chair) revealed a tone-deafness that, if shared by the rest of his caucus, could lead to even further shrinking. Israel parroted the usual line we hear on the left these days – that… More Steve Israel…doesn’t get it
Out of pocket expenses have risen by 300%. The price of premiums for working families have gone up in VA by 15% So now healthcare premiums are in the $20,000-$25,000 range with a $10,000 deductible. A typical mortgage in VA is half that much. This is the fundamental change Obama has talk about, and Warner… More Warner’s Obamacare and Its Cost to You
Looks like the Democrats have finally gone once too often to that well. Every year they play the race card and hand out free stuff. Looks like the community that suffers the most from identity politics has decided to get off the Democrat merry-go-round. The African American community is the most reliable vote the Democrats… More Black Activists Turn On Democrats
The economic illiteracy of the the Democrat party is on full display as Hillary tries to make the ridiculous claim that businesses do not create jobs. Thats is correct. She said that this is, “trickle down economics.” No Hillary, is the free market. I remember the 80’s and 90’s. The private sector – relatively unencumbered… More Hillary Turns Left
The Pew Research Center has a new poll out on how self-described Democrats and Republicans view their own parties on abortion, immigration, marriage, and spending. Most are focusing on the top line: namely, that we Republicans are more upset at our party than the Dems – across the board. However, Pew did a little more digging about why Democrats… More What has the Democrats most upset at their party? Not social issues…

After losing an appeal to the First Congressional District Republican Committee which ruled that the party canvass held to select the Fauquier County GOP Chairman was “not conducted in accordance with the Republican Party of Virginia Plan of Organization” because the victorious party had knowingly enlisted Democrats and other non-Republicans who had no intention of… More Fauquier County GOP “Chairman” Attempts To Astroturf Appeal of His Election to RPV
There has been a lot of speculation about the president ordering a mass de facto legalization of millions of unauthorized immigrants “by summer’s end” (Charles Krauthammer, NRO), and the possibility that he might just be hoping for an impeachment reaction, judging by Dan Pfeiffer’s reaction (Reid Epstein, Wall Street Journal). His fellow Democrats appear giddy just at the… More Obama’s immigration order threats mean Ex-Im Bank is probably dead
This one? – OR – This one? Tell Democrats to stop turning women into victims. Yes. It is that simple. HAT TIP: Hot Air’s Allahpundit.
The most transparent administration in history has some serious problems with this thing called integrity. The real scandal is how ill informed the voting public has become. Ask people about the Louis Lerner and they do not have a clue. Ask them about Fast and Furious and they think you are talking about a car movie.… More What Scandal?
To her supporters, Senator Elizabeth Warren is a champion of the downtrodden and bane of the wealthy. To those of us who know better, she’s a government-always-first leftist who is quite fine with helping the biggest and wealthiest corporations in America so long as the government grows. We have the Heritage Foundation to thank for… More Elizabeth Warren backs the Bank of Boeing
After six years of Obama, 60 years of US foreign policy initiatives lay in ruins. Europe is buckling under the threat of Russia withholding natural gas. In the Middle East, starting under Nixon and Kissinger the US set about converting Russian client states into American client states. Why? Oil. Oil embargoes and the realization that our economy would… More Obama’s Foregn Policy Disaster
For obvious reasons, the more watched of the two special elections to take place on the 19th of August will be the State Senate election in Southwest Virginia. Control of the State Senate depends upon that outcome. However, the other race – for a House of Delegate seat in northern Arlington and (mostly) McLean – could provide… More Did T-Mac just hand northern Arlington to the Republicans?
Senator Lindsay Graham it talking about impeaching President Obama. http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/208264-gop-senator-obama-faces-impeachment-push-if-more-prisoners-leave-gitmo Impeachment over this would not be wise: 1) The President is Commander in Chief and so he is the person that runs wars, not Congress. President Obama has argued that Congress did not have the power to impose this restriction on presidential powers. One can… More Impeachment?

We’ve already noted fmr. Lt. Gov. Don Beyer’s radio commercial where he stakes out some pretty extreme positions in his race for the Democratic nomination in Virginia’s open 8th congressional district. There’s one thing that has jumped out at me during my repeated hearings of Beyer’s ad on WMAL. Beyer’s campaign says in the radio… More Does Don Beyer Practice What He Preaches?
Fmr. President George H.W. Bush (a.k.a. “41”) was honored with the John F. Kennedy Profile In Courage award yesterday for raising taxes as part of the 1990 budget deal. Why they decided to honor him nearly 24 years after the fact is a mystery to me. What is truly ironic, however, is that one of… More Irony – Bush 41 Gets JFK Profile In Courage Award For RAISING Taxes
As House Speaker Bill Howell said, “Y’all I wouldn’t want that picture to be in the paper.”
I know John Whitbeck personally for several years now. He is a good family man who runs a business, and the Washington Post, as usual, is conducting a character assassination of the Republican in a Northern Virginia Election. Take the time to learn about who is John Whitbeck. John believes that government exists to serve the… More Vote For John Whitbeck This Tuesday
For those wondering where I’ve been for the past three weeks, I was recently married (Sunday, the 12th, to be exact). For those interested, meet the new Mrs. Liberal. Anyhow, while I’ve been on my honeymoon, Ed Gillespie made it official – he is running for the U.S. Senate. Whether he wins the nomination or not… More The Republican Party, TARP, and Ed Gillespie (plus some personal news)
Randy Minchew is observing the shenanigans of both Joe May and Jennifer Wexton and has decided that the fiction that they live in the 33rd District must end. This is akin to Hillary Clinton’s declaration that she has always been a Yankee Fan. The text of bill can be found here: 1. That the Code… More Where Do Wexton and May Really Live?
The recount in the Attorney General race is nearing its conclusion. Democrat Mark Herring has picked up several hundred votes and now leads by approximately 800 as of early morning on Wed., Dec. 18th. How has he picked up so many votes? Well, apparently those “geniuses” who vote for Democrats can’t distinguish between the oval… More Recount Update: Are Democrat Voters Truly Morons?
