Kudos to Ed Gillespie


As a tea-party-sponsored debate just outside Richmond wound down, and following some predictable clashes over cutting taxes, the question became whether front-runner Ed Gillespie doesn’t like Trump enough, or whether brash challenger Corey Stewart loves him too much.

Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors and a onetime Virginia leader of the Trump campaign, accused Gillespie of being insufficiently committed to the president. He cited Gillespie’s reluctance to support Trump last fall after a 2005 video was unearthed in which Trump was recorded making lewd remarks about women on the set of the TV show “Access Hollywood.”

“In the wake of the ‘Access Hollywood’ scandal,” Stewart said, “Ed was among the first Republicans in the country to kick him when he was down. . . . You refused to be anywhere near Donald Trump and refused to be on his leadership committee.”

Capt. George Harris: Song of the South?? Faux-Patriotism for the South

Guest opinion from our friend, Capt. George Harris:

A couple of days ago I picked up a copy of The Prince William Times and found a front page article about PWC’s “Mini-Trump”, Corey Stewart.  I found it most interesting that Stewart, a carpetbagger from Minnesota, ranted on about “our Virginia heritage”.  The worst kind of carpetbagging.  And he wraps himself in a flag that he declares is the flag of the Confederacy.  Another attempt at faux-patriotism  for the South.  This is the first flag of the Confederacy and there were two others.  This is the “Stars and Bars” that served as the national flag of the Confederacy.

This flag (below) was the Battle Flag of General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia-it was NEVER the national flag of the Confederacy.  However, it was incorporated into two subsequent Confederate national flags.  It’s continued use by white racists only serves to fan the flames of racism that that continue to burn more than 150 years after the end of a war that nearly destroyed the “perfect union” our founders so desperately sought when they signed the Declaration of Independence long ago on a hot, muggy day in Philadelphia.

I have seen the Facebook video mentioned in the article. Stewart is pulling out all the stops to show that he is a “True son of the South” when he is anything but.  He is so bad that even Trump fired him.  When are the citizens of Prince William County going to wake up and fire him?  And hopefully the citizens of the Commonwealth will see through this carpetbagger and not elect him to our state’s highest office.

It looks like Corey bet on the wrong horse, he got Trumped…errrr dumped


WOODBRIDGE, VA — Donald Trump’s Virginia campaign is ending its relationship with state chair Corey Stewart following a Monday afternoon protest event at the RNC headquarters.

Stewart was promoting his busy day just minutes before news broke that the campaign would replace him over the event.

“Tons of interviews today on behalf of Mr. Trump,” Stewart wrote on Facebook on Monday afternoon. “Then, I went to start a rebellion against GOP establishment pukes who betrayed Trump.”

It wasn’t long after that post that news broke of his exit from the campaign.

“He is being replaced, effective immediately,” said Trump Deputy Campaign Manager David Bossie in a campaign statement. “Corey made this decision when he staged a stunt in front of the RNC without the knowledge or approval of the Trump campaign.”

It sounds like Corey was being a good soldier and he got dumped.   I don’t feel sorry for him at all.

Now the Republicans should dump him for excusing horrible behavior and for staging a rebellion of sorts. What is going on here?  Stay tuned.

Corey Stewart: You will never get the Stench of Trump off you



Corey Stewart, chairman of Donald Trump’s Virginia campaign and a 2017 GOP hopeful for governor, stood by the Republican presidential nominee Friday night after his crude comments about women provoked a firestorm.

Stewart’s defense of Trump stood in stark contrast to the condemnation from two other 2017 GOP hopefuls for governor, Ed Gillespie and Rep. Robert J. Wittman, R-1st.

Asked about the condemnation of Trump by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Stewart, called them “establishment pukes” and said they want Democrat Hillary Clinton to win.

“What do you expect from the Republican establishment,” said Stewart, a Prince William County supervisor. “They want him to lose and they want the other establishment candidate — Hillary Clinton, to win.”

Stewart said the economy “is heading into the gutter and we’re supposed to vote for president based on some locker room statements by Mr. Trump? I think people are smarter than that.

“He’s not an angel — he’s not a pope. We’re voting for president of the United States. When we nominated him we knew he wasn’t a saint, but he’s probably the only person who can change its direction.”

Corey Stewart unloads on Virginia Republicans not voting for Trump


As more Republicans run from their presidential nominee, some have begun looking favorably on the Libertarian ticket, which consists of two former Republican governors: Gary Johnson and William Weld. A recent poll showed Johnson at 11 percent in Virginia. Retiring Rep. Scott Rigell, a Republican, has endorsed Johnson.

“This is not a standard two-person race,” says Liz Mair, a spokesman for Republicans for Johnson/Weld, “and we might see Johnson gain pretty significant traction here pretty quickly.”

This news is not being greeted calmly by Team Trump.

Corey Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of Supervisors and head of the Trump campaign in Virginia, called Republican support for Johnson/Weld “traitorous and destructive.”

“There is no such thing as an anti-Trump group,” Stewart told AMI Newswire. “Anti-Trump is pro-Hillary, and that’s what groups like this really are.”

He wasn’t finished.

“If we lose, I’ll know where to go to place blame,” Stewart said. “If they want careers in politics afterwards, they won’t get them. They’ll be destroyed. This is treason against Trump. For whatever reason — their pride, their personal interests — they will damage America permanently by helping elect Hillary Clinton. They are immature babies who are tearing down the Republican Party.”’

Jon Stewart does a Trump take-down

He’s back….at least temporarily!!!!

God, I have missed that man. I needed a Jon Stewart laugh, especially after that convention.

Speaking of which, I think Hillary should recruit Ivanka for her introduction. Ivanka is the most closeted Democrat I have ever hear….or rather not-so-closeted.

What will become of Faux News without Roger Ailes?  Hats off to Gretchen Carlson for delivering the death-blow.  Now I know why a smart woman, Valedictorian of her class, Stanford graduate, acted like such a bimbo.

Perhaps the biggest take-away from the skit:


“I saw a lot of people on the convention floor with their ‘Blue Lives Matter’ rhetoric who either remained silent or actively fought against the 9/11 first responders’ bill reauthorization,” he continued. “So I see you, and I see your bullshit,”  (triggering CBS’s censors.)

Stewart’s statements disavowed by the Trump campaign

I hesitate to post this.  I feel certain Corey will want to walk his words back at some point.  I will do so upon request.


 The chairman of Donald Trump’s Virginia campaign on Friday placed responsibility for a police massacre in Dallas on Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and another Democrat, Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam.

Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey A. Stewart (R), who like Northam is planning to run for governor in 2017, posted an article about Thursday’s slayings on Facebook early Friday, along with this comment:

“Liberal politicians who label police as racists — specifically Hillary Clinton and Virginia Lt. Governor Ralph Northam — are to blame for essentially encouraging the murder of these police officers tonight.”

Trump’s campaign disavowed the post, issuing a statement through John Fredericks, host of a conservative radio talk show and vice chairman of Trump’s Virginia campaign.

Corey, Corey, Corey….NO! Walk this one back, please!



 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s remarks about the “Mexican” judge presiding over a fraud case against him has drawn condemnation from many Republicans.

Corey A. Stewart is not among them.

Stewart, the chairman of Trump’s Virginia campaign and a GOP contender for Virginia governor in 2017, turned to Facebook to offer Trump his full-throated support.

When Trump travels to Richmond on Friday for an evening rally at the Richmond Coliseum, Stewart will welcome him to the commonwealth. Stewart has warned that if there are any illegal immigrants protesting at the Richmond event, “we’re going to kick their asses out of the country.”

Pre-election prognostications

This upcoming supervisors race is getting increasingly amusing.  Some of it is very predictable.  Some of it, not so much.

I hear things. I never tell names and tales in the same breath.  It cuts off your source of information.  Information is gold to a blogger.  You can use it wisely and prudently or you can shot-gun it all over the place and blow folks out of the water.  I have seen both.  I try to follow the former rather than the latter path.

I find it laughable that the same person ran his own strong-arm candidate acquisition scam.   I think about 20 people got strong armed.  Not many people have the stomach for this game so many just said no.

It appeared that there would be one Republican candidate and one Democratic candidate for the BOCS chair.  Then along came a rival, yapping at Corey heels.  I question the wisdom of  Candland support so early in the game.  That sends a clear message to the current chairman that Pete Candland is an adversary and doesn’t plan to work with Corey at all.  Candland might as well have declared war.  Why would you want to send that message, just out of curiosity?  Is that smart to show your cards that early in the game to someone of the same party, sitting on the same board?

Corey Stewart proposes ‘entitlement cuts’ rather than reducing defense spending

Corey Stewart is apparently wants to save all defense spending while taking a chainsaw to Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid.  His latest email blast in his bid for Lt. Governor is shocking!  His own words:

There is no question our Federal Budget has ballooned to epic proportions, but arbitrarily slashing defense spending is the wrong way to try and reduce the federal deficit.

90,000 civilian Department of Defense employees will be furloughed; this alone will be a $648.8 million hit to the economy of Virginia.

If Washington wants to get serious about reigning in spending, they must go after entitlements. Entitlement programs currently occupy 62% of our federal budget, with 44% of that being comprised of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Those programs are increasing beyond the rate of inflation and, when combined with Obamacare, will eat up 18.5% of our national economic output.

Did he really use the words “go after?”  Does he realize that many senior citizens have only Social Security  to rely on?   Is he declaring a war on senior citizens and the poor?  It sure sounds like it.

They Can’t Make Up Their Minds: This Dog Don’t Hunt!

Are we going to have to go through all of them?  Oddly enough, the Republicans have skipped the really unbaggaged intelligent ones.  Both Romney, Newt and Jon Huntsman are intelligent and knowledgeable.  However, Newt has so much baggage it will be hard to elect someone so unlikeable. 

Stewart has declared Bachmann, Perry, Gingrich and Cain to be zombies who don’t even know they are dead.  Jack Abramoff has called Newt corrupt.  You know you are bad when that guy thinks you are corrupt.

Corey Stewart: The Developers Candidate

Does everyone remember this statement from Corey, Washington Post Oct 19th?

Stewart said that developers were pleased with the direction the board has taken as a whole in easing permit restrictions, building roads and other key infrastructure and keeping taxes low.

He said that he has never taken donations from developers while they have a project pending before the board.

I’ll bet “developers are pleased with the direction of the board!”  Does Avendale ring any bells?!

Tell me, please, why do people spin the truth when the facts can so clearly create obvious contradictions.  From today’s Inside Nova:

On Oct. 7, Bruni Peters of Fairfax-based RK Realty contributed $10,000 to Stewart – just 11 days before Stewart and the rest of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors unanimously approved a comprehensive land use amendment and a re-zoning of one of Bruni’s future mixed-use properties.

At issue is the Hunter at Haymarket development. Thanks to the board’s vote, a six-acre portion of a 44-acre parcel of land off U.S. 15 was approved for office space. The board also approved a higher density residential zoning for nearly 10 of 15 acres that were originally designated semi-rural residential.

America’s Hawks to experience empty nest syndrome

 President Obama has managed to end 2 out of the three wars this week. 

Gaddafi has been killed thus ending our involvement with Libya.  Additionally, President Obama has announced that all Iraqi troops will be home by year’s end. 

Many of the hawks like Lindsay Graham and John McCain have criticized the president for pulling out and leaving the country unprotected.  But was this really Obama’s doing?  According to benchmark records, President Bush signed an agreement with the newly formed Iraqi government to leave all Iraqi territory by December 31, 2011.  Hmmmmm….why is this Obama’s fault?  

 Some might say he was a poor negotiator.  Others might say he honors prior commitments of other presidents. 

One of Stewart’s best skits….
