Heil Signer: Charlottesville Mayor’s new totalitarian police state

Just months after being warned that his new City Council meeting procedures are unconstitutional Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer has doubled down on their enforcement. At the June 20 Charlottesville City Council meeting, Signer unjustly exercised his unwarranted police powers at least twice and in doing so, clearly has violated the United States Constitution. The first instance […]

Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson on what is now Liberty Farm in Fauquier County, Virginia, on the evening of July 18, 1861, three days before the First Battle of Bull Run. So why would a prestigious state preservation group represent that as a fact? The current owner of […]

Stacked deck: Charlottesville Blue Ribbon Statue Commission’s fait accompli

Charlottesville’s recently appointed Blue Ribbon Commission on Race, Memorials and Public Places (BRC) appears to be a politically stacked deck. Sparked by Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy’s public call to remove the Robert E. Lee statue from Lee Park, and unanimously convened by resolution of the Charlottesville City Council on May 6, the BRC was given […]

Deniers: Charlottesville City Council ignores Muslim refugee threat

Compelled by his concern over the future of America—and fearful for the lives of his children and grandchildren—Charlottesville-area resident Joe Draego attempted to inform the Charlottesville City Council of the imminent threat that Muslim “refugee resettlement” poses to our community. Draego’s fact-based presentation, which took place at the June 6 City Council meeting, was met […]

America’s Warning Signs (The Tragic Result of Flying Blind)

I was reading about the circumstances regarding the crash of Aeroperu Airlines Flight 603 (2 October 1996). It was truly an accident that need not have happened, and it was due solely to human error. The maintenance crew had taped over the static ports before washing the plane, and neglected to remove the tape afterwards. […]

The Blue Spade Sings: The Prius Patrol

The Blue Spade (aka Scott Bandy) returns with another musical parody—this time a musical analysis of Charlottesville City Hall’s dreaded Prius Patrol. Sung to the tune of Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi (and in the style of Amy Grant’s version), Bandy warns Charlottesville residents and visitors alike of the predatory jackboots in their little white […]

Holding out for a hero: the failure of feminism

The other evening while at dinner, thanks to boisterous voices, I could not help but overhear the adjacent table full of twenty-something women, bemoaning how difficult it is today to find good men.

And the children shall lead (or destroy): How we’ve fostered our own demise

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”—Proverbs 22:6 History is so rich, and so profoundly educational, and sadly so purposefully poorly taught. Even now, there is a move afoot, perhaps even successful in some school districts, to ignore American history prior […]
