Mark Warner can run from his record, but he can’t hide it. I know…really going out on a limb with this prediction.

Obama on the Mideast: Punish our friends, reward our enemies

The Obama administration’s handling of the latest conflagration between Israel and the Palestinian terror group Hamas is nothing short of shocking. To put it bluntly: we have negotiated with and subsidized terrorists while pressuring, cajoling, and blockading our closest friend in the region. In the process, we have completely ceded the moral argument to Islamic… (more)


Rand’s Ron Paul Problem

By most accounts, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is the frontrunner for the 2016 GOP nod. In almost all of the major straw polls and in most of the scant scientific polling done to date, Sen. Paul maintains a lead over the likes of New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie, fellow Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and… (more)

Robert Sarvis Qualifies for the Ballot, this Time Without Liberal Funding?

Last year, conservative stalwart Ken Cuccinelli narrowly lost his bid for Governor of Virginia.  Although I believe that other factors, (press coverage predicting a McAuliffe landslide) tipped the balance away from electing one of the most freedom loving governors in our time, many laid blame on the libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis. The quasi-libertarian Robert Sarvis… (more)

Cuccinelli Endorses Constitutionality of Gov. Rick Perry’s Defense of Texas Border

Texas Governor Rick Perry said earlier today that he is beginning deployment of up to 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the border with Mexico to address the growing surge of illegal border crossings.

Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio Exonerated Again, and Again, and Again. BOS Votes 8 to 1 to Restore Sterling District Funds

Loudoun Democrats couldn’t beat the Sterling Supervisor in the voting booth so they turned to the courts, twice.  They failed, twice.  Some members of the all-Republican Board of Supervisors decided to jump into the clown car with them, parading around town making fools of themselves.  Only one Loudoun Supervisor continues to make a fool of… (more)

Sen. Mark Warner (D-WaPo)

Mark Warner’s campaign goes from hope to fear

Senator Mark Warner has largely achieved success in politics based on the false image of the rare politician who rises above all the partisan rhetoric and bickering to ‘get things done.’ So, given his success in projecting a centrist image despite his radically liberal voting record, it is interesting that Mark Warner appears to be shifting… (more)
