Identity Theft & Invasion of Privacy in the Age of Apple

The things that we’ve historically categorized as fantasy all too often become fact. Mary Shelley’s 1818 book, Frankenstein, predicted organ transplants while H.G. Wells’ 1914 novel, The World Set Free, foresaw the creation of the atomic bomb. In 1931, Aldous Huxley conjured a vision of a drug-dependent society that valued sexual freedom and drug use […]

Virginia is Not United on Gun Control

Florida Republicans may have broken with GOP values and the NRA by backing a wasteful $400 million gun control bill. Retail outlets like Dick’s Sporting Goods may be cowing down to the Twitter-happy Left by removing assault-style rifles from their nationwide locations. But not everyone is content to grin and bear the swath of social […]

Mechanicsville T.E.A Party Leader is Clueless

  In a fawning (almost sickening ) letter in the last edition of the Mechanicsville Local,  the  Leader of the M.T.P praised Congressman Rob Wittman for his vote to lower taxes. Given Wittman’s decade long tenure in Congress he has a record , and not one that most conservatives get excited about. Did you know […]

Nick Freitas Opens Door to Jim Gilmore to Lose to Tim Kaine

With the weak leadership at the Republican Party of Virginia apparently pushing Nick Freitas into the 2018 Senate race to topple far left Democrat Senator Tim Kaine, Jim Gilmore has to see that as a plus for his chances to win the nomination. And Gilmore will, of course, lose. That’s not a knock on the […]

Ron Hedlund Responds to RPV Chairman Whitbeck’s Attacks

Editor’s Note: I am posting this for Ron Hedlund. After the worst losing streak in Virginia Republican history, it seems John Whitbeck, the Chairman presiding over the disaster that is the RPV, instead of trying to find ways to win, Whitbeck is busy attacking people like Ron Hedlund. It is my personal opinion that any […]

Lovettsville Lady has Gone off the Deep End.

While I have never met Jeanine Martin , as a frequent commentator on The Bull Elephant, I do indeed read her posts and admire her passionate drive to move conservative thought forward here in Virginia. Mrs. Martin never hid her disdain for our current President but in her post today, titled  “ Proof Trump cost […]

Pelosi Lies Again, This Time on Concealed Carry

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before – a Democrat completely misrepresented our nation’s gun laws to try and push their own flawed political agenda. This time around, it was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who took to Twitter to whine about H.R. 38, better known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. […]

12 Weeks in Virginia: Why More Laws Will Not Stop Gun Violence

Another day, another silly, uninformed anti-gun story by a liberal media outlet. This time around, it was The Washington Post tracing where a handgun went over 12 weeks, and from the beginning, you can tell they’re trying to sell you on the horrors one gun can cause. The title alone references “a dozen criminal acts” […]

By Their Own Admission

  A story in the Richmond Times Dispatch November 14, 2016 prompted by a report of the Joint Legislative Audit & Review Commission ( JLARC) warrants taxpayers attention. It has long been alleged that the 20 year old legislation to create an ever expanding array of Economic Development agencies has been riddled with example after […]

My Unbiased Opinion on the Vogel – Reeves Email Scandal

I am not supporting any State Senators in the Lt. Governor’s race this year. Neither Jill Vogel nor Bryce Reeves will see my endorsement for two reasons. First, neither has impressed me with their voting records. But the biggest reason by far is the balance of power in the State Senate. Vogel’s seat may be […]

The Washington Post Owes Me an Apology. I Correctly Called the Poll Bias While They Scoffed

A couple of weeks before the election this past November, the Washington Post ran a column written by Catherine Rampell ironically titled “When the facts don’t matter, how can democracy survive?“ And in her column Rampell went on a rant against those of us who insist on accuracy in numbers. Government numbers and especially polling […]

Why Party Registration in Virginia is a Horrible Idea (or The Swamp Fights Back!)

Here they go again. Republicans just keep earning the nickname “The Stupid Party” year after year. And make no mistake, the push for party registration is a flat out GOP Establishment (GOPe) scheme to exert more control over the election process. But this year, State Senator Mark Obenshain is counting on the bitter Cruz Clingers […]

Did Russia Influence America’s Election? Didn’t Obama Try to Influence Brexit and Israel?

There is no proof that Russia had anything to do with hacking the Democrat’s emails. Yet the Democrats are asserting over and over that Putin was to blame for Hillary’s loss. The NY Times reported: WASHINGTON — President Obama said on Thursday that the United States would retaliate for Russia’s efforts to influence the presidential […]

What’s the Difference Between “Fake News,” Opinion and Spin?

So what is the difference between “Fake News,” opinion and spin? When you ponder that thought a while, the first thing that pops out at you is the term “Fake News.” The take away the left wants you to believe is that Fake is the same as False. So why not use the term “False […]

My Thoughts on the Virginia Trump Team Infighting and the 2017 Gubernatorial Race

I have been rather quiet of late, since Thanksgiving anyway. I had eye surgery the Monday after Thanksgiving which went quite well and have been taking a bit of a sanity break from politics the past couple weeks. Sometimes you just have to take a break to prevent burnout. It has been quite an eventful […]

President –Elect Trump hits just the right tone

I have marveled at the 24/7 news cycle and their often humorous efforts to “ make some news”, if they can’t find any, or when it’s a quiet 24 hour period.  This past week’s constant harping on how the Trump transition team was in meltdown is a case in point. One would think after the […]

A Wrap up on the 2016 Presidential Election Polls

I suppose I could start out by writing “I was right and the polls were wrong.” But I won’t. That would be gloating. However, I spent a lot of time telling people the polls were wrong. That they were over sampling Democrats and often under sampling Independents (not to mention Republicans). Also, the narrative that […]

The Left has Brainwashed their Voters. Talk About the Party of Hate! Call in the Shrinks!

The Democrats have spent a lot of time and money in this election pushing a message of hate to “energize” their base. Eight years ago, they didn’t need to do that because Barack Obama was billed as the positive candidate for change. Of course they still did their best to demonize the opposition in both […]
