Everyone is talking about Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher who murdered his girlfriend this weekend before he killed himself. Then there’s NBC’s Bob Costas turning this into an anti-gun crusade (never mind that O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole was murdered with a knife.) Not many people are picking up on the aspect of Belcher’s girlfriend also … More Football, Kids and Marriage

When Rev. / Del. Luke Torian had the opportunity to weigh in on HB1, the “personhood” legislation before the House of Delegates, how did he vote? He didn’t. Note that he DID cast a vote on the very next bill brought before the House as well as the vote immediately before it (order of the votes … More Luke Torian’s Thirty Pieces Of Silver
It was all easy to dismiss when Obama and his band of merry liberals came for rich people, or banks, or small businesses, or countless others who depended on liberty to exist and thrive. How about when he stripped the religious freedoms of the largest denomination in the country, 25% of Americans- Roman Catholics? I … More …And then they came for me.
As you know, liberal Democrat Senator Edd Houck is running for another term this year, facing a real challenge from businessman Bryce Reeves. One of the reasons I am running for Delegate is to use my ground game to help elect Bryce and our GOP nominee in the 22nd Senate District (decided Tuesday also, by … More Here’s one reason I’m running for 56th District Delegate
Dan Sickles was a Union general whose loyalty to his country was never questioned, but his incompetence and lust for glory led him to badly weaken the Federal lines at Gettysburg on Day 2. He arguably did more for the Confederacy than any officer who wore the grey uniform. I am strongly pro-life (I volunteered … More “Dick Black went to Richmond and all I got was this lousy plastic fetus.”
No bones about it, last night’s New York result was a defeat for the Republicans – period. Had Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-gadfly Jack Davis won 20% of the vote – or even 15% – perhaps some solace could have been taken for the GOP. Instead, he only won 9%, meaning just about every would-be Republican voter was gleaned … More About last night . . .
Woodbridge Supervisor Frank Principi says on his own web site that he is “Pro-Life,” but when he had the chance to vote in favor of a resolution supporting the regulation of abortion clinics, he refused. In other business, the supervisors passed a resolution Tuesday afternoon in support of the regulation of abortion clinics in Virginia. … More Frank Principi Calls Himself Pro-Life, But…
U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) has opted to retire rather than be defeated in Nov. following his crucial vote for Democare that gave cover to other pro-life Democrats thus providing the narrow margin of victory for the legislation. Let’s see how long President Obama’s Exec. Order on abortion funding remains in place that was used … More Stupak Opts For Retirement Over Defeat
Virginia State Delegate: ‘I Don’t Believe That Disabled Kids Are God’s Punishments, Period’ “I don’t believe that disabled kids are God’s punishments, period, end of discussion,” said Marshall. “I have defended disabled kids.

Rasmussen released its latest poll on the VA Gov. race today showing Bob McDonnell further pulling away from Creigh “What’s In Your Wallet?” Deeds, adding 6-points to his lead in the last month bringing it now up to 9. More importantly, McDonnell appears to have the edge across the board on just about every major … More New Rasmussen Poll Gives McDonnell The Edge Across the Board
Just when you thought the campaign of Creigh “What’s In Your Wallet?” Deeds couldn’t get any more pathetic, the WashPo revealed on Sunday that he has apparently stolen the campaign playbook for Jerry Kilgore’s unsuccessful 2005 race for Governor. (Another “me, too!” moment for Team Deeds?) Just as the Kilgore campaign tried to make Tim … More Kilgore Campaign Calls On Deeds To Return Their 2005 Playbook
While what Dr. George Tiller did in performing late term abortions was wrong (some have even said “evil”), it was just as wrong for the man who took his life yesterday to murder him in cold blood. The pro-life movement has widely and swiftly condemned this act of violence. Changing minds and hearts is the … More Wrong is Wrong
D.J. McGuire has up his post about The Teleprompted One speaking at Notre Dame’s commencement yesterday and receiving an honorary degree (something that AZ State U. wisely denied bestowing.) Rather than going into lengthy criticism, I’ll simply paraphrase a t-shirt that they used to sell at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA … More Notre Dame – The Sell-Out Irish
Thank you Michael Gerson for an inspired, originial and instructive piece today. The Importance of Trig Being.
From the NYT: Republicans are gearing up campaigns to depict Mr. Obama as a radical on the question of abortion, because as a state senator in Illinois he opposed a ban on the killing of fetuses born alive. There is a word for this — infanticide. I’d say that is pretty solid grounds for calling … More NYTimes Stumbles Onto Obama’s Radical Pro-Abortion Stance
Douglas Kmiec, a(n alleged) conservative law professor at Pepperdine Univ. and former Dean of my alma mater Catholic Univ. Law, was denied communion at a Mass back in April on account of his support for Barry Obama (earlier this election cycle, he had endorsed Mitt Romney.) Kmiec is out promoting that Catholics should naturally support Barry … More “Conservative” Catholic Lawyer Denied Communion Over Support For Obama
I was stunned to open the op-ed pages of the WashPo this morning and see this headline: Obama’s Abortion Extremism From a column by Michael Gerson — But Obama’s record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called “too … More How’d The WashPo Let THAT Headline Slip By?
So, just how radically liberal is Sen. Barack Obama? So radical that as an Illinois state senator he voted THREE times against the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act” (a fourth time he cast one of his infamous “Present” votes) and then used his chairmanship of the Illinois State Senate’s Health & Human Services Committee to even prevent … More Just How Radically Liberal Is Obama?
