Virginia voters reject the gun grabbers as GOP retains Senate
Mike Bloomberg and his anti-civil rights group Everytown wanted Virginia. The front page of his website still promotes his desire to win the Virginia Senate from the Republicans, which would split control of the General Assembly and hand the advantage to Governor Terry McAuliffe in his twin quests for gun control and Obamacare expansion. Democrats in theory had a shot to take the Senate away, | Read More »
Reminder: Democrats Care More about Grabbing Guns Than About Victims of Violence

We must act to stop gun violence, and we cannot wait any longer. Praying for the victims’ families in Virginia. -H — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 26, | Read More »
It’s time for #WMATA reform.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, or WMATA, is an organization created by interstate compact. It runs the DC Metrorail system (America’s second-largest subway) in the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland, and is governed by the compact between those jurisdictions and the US Government. It’s broken, and it’s constantly being found to be broken in new and disappointing ways. It’s time for meaningful fixes | Read More »
Terry McAuliffe creates his own Kermit Gosnell
Back in 2013 most of the nation, other than Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood, were both shocked and horrified when the “pro-choice” atrocities of Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell came to light. Gosnell operated with state complicity. Governor Tom Ridge, a “moderate” Republican, had allowed his clinic to operate without any inspections and to perform partial birth abortions in defiance of Pennsylvania law outlawing that particular | Read More »
How Terry McAuliffe failed to impose Medicaid expansion on Virginia.
This Washington Post article on Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe’s futile attempt to sneak Medicaid expansion past his own state legislature is fascinating, but it has several flaws in it. There are things that are not mentioned enough, things that are mentioned too much, and at least one thing that is not mentioned at all. Unsurprising, given that the WaPo remains a Democratic cheerleader; but still | Read More »
Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D, VA): condemned [Puckett] judgeship deal in public, made his own offer in private.
It is unlikely that this is actually illegal, or at least illegal enough to get Terry McAuliffe in real trouble. But it’s gonna be useful, none the less.

RSC Tried To Solve GOP’s Women Problem
Single women could be a deciding factor in the 2014 midterms. Democrats know they’re the key to keeping the majority in the Senate, so how do conservatives push back against war on women narratives? The Republican Study Committee hosted a panel about these issues facing conservative women earlier this month. The Wall Street Journal Kimberley Strassel, who moderated the panel, said reaching women voters is | Read More »

So, Virginia’s new commerce secretary Maurice Jones comes pre-‘under investigation’ed.
My first reaction? “Well, that was quick.” Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s commerce secretary Maurice Jones improperly lobbied Congress as a member of the Obama administration, according to an internal federal investigation launched by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. …Oh, wait, it happened last year. Apparently the guy thought that it was OK to use his position as a HUD deputy secretary to | Read More »
Terry McAuliffe allegedly sold ABC board seat to ‘Republican’ Boyd Marcus.
Before we go any further, though… the Washington Post may tell us the details: they may not display any moral indignation. The Washington Post endorsed that corrupt suckweasel Terry McAuliffe for Governor of Virginia: the below is exactly the sort of thing that we all expected McAuliffe to do.

The Republican Donors Went AWOL – And It Hurt Cuccinelli
After Ken Cuccinelli ended Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling’s aspirations to become Virginia’s next governor, he remained idle; refusing to endorse Cuccinelli when he officially clinched the Republican nomination for governor. As the race progressed, the Republican donor base in Virginia went AWOL. In the end, it contributed to Ken Cuccinelli’s sinking campaign. Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist, wrote today that typically donors are aligned with the | Read More »
