Threats, Threats, and More Threats!!!

By Loudoun Insider

We’ve already covered the bogus threats from the LEA and their work to rule fiasco, which is backfiring nicely on them.

I missed posting about this when it happened, but we also have noted anti-Wolf robocaller John Grigsby threatening Keith Fimian.  Fimian is probably the most conservative Republican who ever ran for Congress in Virginia, and Grigsby is apoplectic because Fimian wasn’t scheduled to attend a Tea Party rally.  I have no clue if Fimian went or not, but what a bogus threat.  The email is provided below the fold.

Then we have a dire warning from Donny Ferguson, Delgaudio’s former aide who has been promoted from PR guy to Executive Director of the never before heard of Western Tradition Partnership (I bet this is a one man office).  In true over the top Delgaudio-trained style, Donny has blown the Ches Bay Act totally out of proportion in an attempt to incite hysterical fear with his “final warning”.  Another threat sure to be ignored by its intended recipients.  The press release is also below the fold.

This urgent request just in from Organizer John Grigsby

There will be Congressional forums at the upcoming http://www.vateapartyconvention.com. While the Libertarian candidates in the 11th and 10th Districts are willing to participate in them, many Republicans, including Keith Fimian and Frank Wolf,have refused to participate, or have claimed “scheduling issues”.  The latter claim is bogus, as the candidates have wide latitude in scheduling these forums.  

In less than two days,the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation, of which Northern Virginia Tea Party is a founding member, will send out a blistering press release against Keith Fimian and Frank Wolf, unless we can get them to participate in these forums.  If you’d like to save these candidates from bad press, please contact and alert them about this.  Frank Wolf already refused to participate in Northern Virginia Tea Party’s candidate forum. Let’s help him recognize how important it is to reach out to us, something both the Libertarian and Democrat candidates did, by attending.

WTP issues final warning to Loudoun Board before Chesapeake Bay vote
Citizen-powered grassroots group warns about 20,000 residents of bigger government, fewer jobs, higher taxes, loss of homeowner rights under Chesapeake Bay Tax and Control Plan
 
WASHINGTON – The nation’s largest grassroots opponent of radical environmentalism, with roots in Loudoun County, issued its final warning to county supervisors to drop its controversial Chesapeake Bay Act.  The citizens’ group sent a recorded telephone alert to nearly 20,000 Loudoun residents Friday evening.
 
“This radical Board is using fake claims about water as a ruse to seize control of your home,” said Donny Ferguson, Western Tradition Partnership’s Executive Director.  “The Board knows they’re lying, but they view private property as a threat to their radical green views.  The outdated, unscientific Chesapeake Bay Tax and Control Plan’s massive tax hikes and iron-fisted control of private property is the most ruthless weapon available,” said Ferguson.
 
“When the Board’s scheme accomplishes their goals of higher taxes, bigger government and bureaucratic control of private homes, but they admit it does nothing to address water pollution, people know what this Board’s real agenda is.  Higher taxes and control of your home.” said Ferguson.  “The time has come for this Board to drop its radical agenda.”
 
Residents in the Blue Ridge, Potomac and Sugarland Run districts were urged to call their supervisor at home.  Residents in the Leesburg District, where Supervisor Kelly Burk does not offer constituents a way to personally reach her, were urged to contact her government office.
 
Roughly 5,300 Dulles District residents represented by the frequently-moving Supervisor Stevens Miller, whose business phones have been cut off and does not list a reliable home phone number, were urged to contact him on his cell phone.
 
Ferguson served as a Board staff aide to Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio from 2002 to 2007.  Delgaudio has no involvement in or input into any of WTP’s lobbying efforts or programs.
 
WTP does not advocate the election or defeat of candidates.  Supported by grassroots members from across the nation, WTP is a fast-growing non-profit organization dedicated to fighting environmental extremism and promoting private property and responsible development and management of land, water, and natural resources.  WTP is active nationwide.
 
For more information on WTP, go to http://www.westerntradition.org.  For more information on this issue, or to schedule an interview, contact Executive Director Donald Ferguson at 703-200-3669 or at donald.f@westerntradition.org.

    did we just have good moment ;-)

    locally hired is a good thing :-)

    no matter where in the country,

    I am having a great moment here many generations before our movie party.

    from the little babies now who moms babysat our our boys back in Texas and now their little critters

  • sally says:

    Leej,

    I hope you and Dalyn will be ok. I am going to say a prayer for you right now! It is such scary times for a lot of people, and I am praying for our Country too.

    I for one have always enjoyed your posts! and your :) s

    You will have to keep blogging here when you go back to Texas!

  • Leej says:

    Thanks Sally girl :-) A few weeks ago I took Dalyn to the Micheal McDonald Boss Scags and some one of the Guys from Steely Dan concert at Belmont country club. Dalyn has always loved Micheal McDonald so I surprised Dalyn for her birthday and it was a phenomenal concert. You can see why they get paid the big bucks. :-) Then Dalyn goes we can’t afford this. And I said no we can’t and my brother actually paid for this and he insisted.

    A miracle happen that evening. We are driving out of the concert Dalyn does not drink and I had a few beers so she drives. Well Dalyn gets this phone call from one of our friends that went to the Concert. And she is crying and saying to Dalyn something happen to my leg and it hers so bad I can’t stand up. She did not fall or anything she just gets this painful flare up. As many of you know the concert is held in a huge field and also that is where you park.

    Well it is very dark. Also all these cars are leaving.

    Dalyn has the sense of direction in the world ;-) thank God the GPS was invented ha ha

    I say Dalyn how in the world are going to find our friend???

    Is she next to something we can identify???

    you better call security, and they, I am sure are better equipped at finding her in this big huge dark field with no identifying features by her.

    you can’t find the grocery store a slight exaggeration but almost that bad.

    Anyway Dalyn goes just shut up Lee, you just don’t know things.

    I am thinking we are now going to be driving around looking for a needle in a hay stack all night.

    Now the miracle, Dalyn drives right to her in this huge dark field in less then 30 seconds.

    I say, Dalyn how in the hell did you do that.

    And she says you just don’t know things!!

    That was a miracle and hopefully another one happens for us the way our life is deteriorating financially and many others are also having the same problems when I open up to them and they say how things for them are falling apart.

    I rambled on too far here and Thanks Sally for the prayer.

    Seriously we will be OK somehow, It could be worse, We have our health as I remember my grandmother would say.

    We are lucky to have good family and friends. And Sally we have never met you, but you are one of them.

  • sally says:

    Lee, wonderful post! What a sweet and thoughtful guy to take Dalyn for her birthday! You love her… real love. And I can tell she loves you.

    Had to laugh, “you just don’t know things!” SHE WAS RIGHT!

    We do have to believe in miracles, and I believe there will be many more in your life. I really do believe things are going to work out for you and turn around. Texas will be so much fun, you will be blessed there…something big will happen, just wait for it!

    But please come back here and blog, I will miss your posts! I consider you a friend too, and don’t know if I can help you in any way, but I would! Are you trying to sell your house? it only takes one person to fall in love with it and buy it, and interest rates are so low. I will pray for that too!

    Take care, and believe in more miracles to come.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    Come back and post Lee – You have a truly unique and optimistic outlook on life. I may not agree with you all the time but you have always been a gentleman. Texas is a fine place to put down roots (again in your case).

    My best to your entire family.

  • G.Stone says:

    Taxpayers are getting squeezed by:

    A. bad past development deals
    B. an overly-expensive school system
    C. collapse of housing market

    The perfect storm.
    Correct. I would add:
    d. A board not only willing but advocating the expansion of the size, scope and cost of local governemnt at exactly the wrong time. They are emulating the actions of our current leadership on the hill, as well as the president. A board unwillimg due to flawed political / economic outlook to set aside their propensity for expansion in the face of the greta Recession and all it entails. A common course of action at multiple levels of Gov’t. Stupid flows downhill.

  • Elder Berry says:

    Leej, this county would not look like it does, would not have suffered the growth problems it has, and would be far less divided over growth if the homebuilding had been dominated by the small local builders who built most of the homes in many earlier phases of suburban expansion. I remember houses going up two or three at a time, one street at a time. I’m very much on the team with local builders. But what we got was Mcbuilding by Toll Brothers, and local people, good conservative Republicans, defended the Toll Brothers approach and the Toll Brothers product and the Toll Brothers/Centex/big builder development scam that left our county in a bad way finance-wise.

    Stone, You call it expansion I call it just barely keeping up. The biggest growth in government and the deficit has been under Ronald Reagan and George Bush. So if the local government is creating big government it is taking after them. I don’t see them doing that at the supervisor level anyway. You hit a certain rate of growth and you can’t provide services that suburban residents (who start out as new home buyers) expect. Did you see the realtors who banded with the property rights advocates in the first half of this decade shouting about reducing government services, no way. The current supervisors are holding the bag for what went before just as the rest of us who tried to be prudent and didn’t go into junk mortgages are. I see them trying to cope with a rapidly developing and changing county where costs are high and mechanisms to raise revenue or reduce costs are actually very few. When Lori Waters, good fiscal conservative that she is, ran up against real Loudoun County budgets, she’s been hard-pressed to come up with specific cuts, and for good reason. Delgaudio shouts a lot generically about cutting government, but he’s nowhere when they look at line items, just like national Republican leaders. too bad we can’t start by cutting out…him.

    Sally you don’t get far with me by putting words in my mouth or going off on a tangent with a bogus issue. I happen to agree that the school board is probably building schools that are excessively outfitted, we could build them like Clarke or Fauquier and save some money, but heck, this county is still having to build four or five schools a year so the bells and whistles are a secondary matter not the big problem.

  • “The biggest growth in government and the deficit has been under Ronald Reagan and George Bush”
    The big lie…..agian. Investigate and correct that, EB…
    Otherwise, you are embarrassing only yourself and anyone stupid enough to believe the shit you make up on the fly.

    excellent observation
    we are losing the personal touch in this country at least in my business.

    When the national builders took over, the building business changed for the worst. Now you hear we bought so and so model and back in the good old days that would of been a custom built home fitting the needs of their lifestlye.

    Today people just accept the generic model make a few simple changes that the national builder will only do. Then brag about their generic home that have half the people in the neighbor have.
    Yet years ago they would of built a true custom home for that price. My home is a true custom home I designed and say best looking home in the area. Not to brag or better those days are fast over.

    It is real shame the national builders have forced the true custom builders and designers out of the market. And even more scary the new home owners accept the generic brand. And life style.

    It is almost like the old movie Step-ford Wives where everything was generic at least their robot like wives. Silly but true :-) .

    Young Berry,

    Toll is a marketing company. They design houses, buy land and help local builders market the Toll homes under the Toll name. Local builders build Toll houses. Toll was very innovative in their approach, and if you have checked recently they are still very profitable, publicly traded.

    The fury in home building was as much a result of loose credit, rules where you could buy a house without showing any income for a mortgage, and the policies of Freddie and Fannie, where the government required banks to lend, and then bought the mortgages and bundled them to the folks who sold them on wall street.

    Blame Barney. And Chris. Toll was just there supplying the demand for housing, and made smart decisions.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    “Stone, You call it expansion I call it just barely keeping up. The biggest growth in government and the deficit has been under Ronald Reagan and George Bush.”

    Good Lord, did you get knocked on the head with a coconut after inauguration day?

  • Eric the 1/2 troll says:

    “Toll was very innovative in their approach, and if you have checked recently they are still very profitable, publicly traded.”

    And currently scooping up land in LoCo.

    The builders were in bed with the mortgage companies that sold the notes with no documentation. These were bundled together as (amazingly) a AAA security backed bond (for the bond rating companies were in on the scam) and re-sold on the open market. Meanwhile, a few very savvy wall streeters bought insurance policies from the likes of AIG betting that the AAA rated bonds (made up of undcoumented loans) would fail. They were ALL in a big game of hot potato together but where did the underlying money go (you know the mortgages)? The dollars we covered in the bail outs? Three guesses…

    Remember the liberal Washington Times and their piece on the size of government?

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/oct/19/big-government-gets-bigger/

  • sally says:

    Eric, if the likes of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are going to force our banks to lend, and to guarantee the loans, by buying them immediately– that will certainly influence the market, and where investors put their money. Not many banks held onto those loans, the ink was just dry when the federal government owned them. That is what they gov’t wanted, and that is what it got… homes for everyone! lend to everyone, we will guarantee it, don’t worry about failure, we will guarantee it, and if you don’t loan, we will prosecute you ala the Obama suit vs. Citibank…

    The fallacy is that the Democrats think they can “fix” the market or social issues with these little schemes (and the climate for that matter.)

  • sally says:

    Eric, what land is Toll buying? I have not heard that?

    And Edmund, the article that you cited from the Wash Times mostly addressed the increase in our federal budget due to the TARP. Most of the TARP money has been repaid, with interest, and the Banks did not want to take it. It was given only to “healthy” banks, supposedly, to lend, to get our economy going, then when Obama came in, the rules changed, and he used it as an attempt to take over our biggest banks. They quickly paid it back.

    The stimulus money, on the other hand…. will remain a permanent taxpayer burden.
