Mr. Russell Was Right – It Is an Emergency!

by Staff

As our readers well know, we have been closely following the election here in Fauquier involving the biannual reconstitution of the local Republican Party. As you might recall we reported in a recent post, how Mr. Scott Russell stated, ”Please let me be blunt – there is a movement afoot with certain elements in the county to win all of the committee’s at-large seats and gain a controlling interest in the Fauquier County Republican Committee.” He went on to state “These are the folks who have stated publicly that they want to throw EVERY incumbent out and start over. They are also attempting to seize control of the 5th Congressional District Committee.”

We never discovered who Mr. Russell actually thought the “elements” were or just how signing up Republicans to join the local committee could be construed as seizing control of the entire 5th District, a District that runs from Fauquier’s northern border to Mecklenburg County’s southern border which adjoins North Carolina. However, through the work of one of our researchers, we did discover that Mr. Russell is attempting a “take-over” of his own. He is attempting to bring Democrats (or at least Democrat supporters) into the Republican Committee.

On Tuesday, March 18, 2014 11:27 AM, Scott Russell <> sent, an email to his supporters listing his slate of favorables for the open positions being voters on.

One of our researchers has submitted a report using public data that is copied here:

At_Large_1At-Large candidate #1 – Never donated to a Republican, suddenly wants to be a Republican.  Supported campaigns of non-Republicans running against Republicans.


At_Large_2At-Large candidate #2 – Donated to Creigh Deeds (Dem) and Albert Pollard (Dem).  Supported campaigns of non-Republicans running against Republicans.  Has made NO contributions to Republicans.


At_Large_3At-Large candidate #3 – Donated to Tim Kaine (Dem), Creigh Deeds (Dem), Don McEachin (Dem), William Day (Dem), Stevens Miller (Dem), and Ralph Northam (Dem)


Like Ronald Reagan said, “Trust but Verify”.  Feel free to verify this information yourself.  Follow the money trail using VPAP.ORG and FEC.GOV for these individuals and the organizations they are proudly aligned with.  See which candidates those organizations supported, and see who the major donors were.  Most important, ask the folks running for the Committee positions and currently on the Committee who invited these Democrats to run.

Since Scott Russell just moved into town and has only been a voting member of the Fauquier County Republican Committee for one month, it is easy to see how he could be misled by others around him as to the truth about who he has chosen to support in this election. It actually would have been better for him to have gotten the “lay of the land” here in Fauquier before assuming he should lead our party. To use a quote from Mr. Russell’s American Spectator in Jeffrey Lord’s article today written about Scott Wagner’s win in Pennsylvania, the “issue of the infiltration of the Republican Party by those at odds with core GOP principles of limited government” should play a central role in our decisions in defense of our Party, both in Pennsylvania and, I add, here in Fauquier.

Since Mr. Russell did not choose his team wisely, it is up to the voters in Saturday’s election to do that.

So make your own analysis. Do your own research. Draw your own conclusions. If you are a conservative and you are a registered voter in Fauquier County, now is the time to come to the aid of the local Republican Party. It is time to take a stand, a stand against Democrats in Republican clothing. Vote on March 22 to save our party. Come out and support the conservative cause.

The election is this Saturday from 9AM to 2PM at the Warrenton Community Center, 430 E. Shirley Ave, Warrenton.

And bring a picture ID. It is now the law, that is, until the Democrats take over.

    By your logic if I say I am the King of England then you should treat me as the King of England just because I say so. And if I tell you I am South Korean then I am just because I say so. Great, then we can get rid of all national security background checks because by your logic the North Koreans can just say they are South Koreans and we have to accept that.

    Reagan said we should not speak ill of fellow Republicans. Ok, we will go with that if you want (even though it was coined by Gaylord Parkinson, not Reagan). I have not seen anyone talking bad about a fellow Republican here. Back to the original premise, just because you call yourself a Republican does not make you one. So, since they are not real Republicans, nobody is violating this premise.

    While the other national level issues you cite are important too, they are not any more important than the local issues which this race is all about. The libs are trying to divert our attention away from all issues by confusing voters over the importance of the issues in each situation. They are not pitting conservatives against one another. However, the Conservatives ARE standing up and being counted as they stop the libs from polluting the Party.

    Those 3 people self identify as republicans. Not defending them but what happened to the great Reagan’s 11th commandment: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican”. We all need to work together to push back the liberal Obama agenda sweeping the country. The assault on marriage, the homosexual agenda, and the watering down of family values is way more important than zoning. If anything, the libs are distracting us with that, and pitting us conservatives against one another while they burn down America.

    PS To All – Isn’t it amazing to see the comments all of a sudden from individuals alluding (the correct word) that anyone who opposes the status quo is somehow silly, petty, crazy, or otherwise unfit to comment.

    The issues of zoning, the Boneta Bill, and government agencies targeting individuals are not minute. Dismissing these is the same thing the Tories did during the great revolution that founded this country. We fought to eliminate oppressive and abusive government agencies and officials to form a country that supported individual liberty and justice.

    I sense a great concern on the part of some that the Conservatives have had enough and are tired of being polite and just trying to get along peacefully. Hopefully we will see a great turnout of true Conservatives and not see the Democrats rushing people to the election. Then again, this just might be the wakeup call needed for Virginia to pass party affiliation laws and stop this craziness from occurring in the first place.

    You guys are all funny. This is all for control of the county Republican Party? Given the emotional tone of these discussions I’m really wondering what are these grave issues upon us where such divisive infighting within one political party could become so pervasive? Zoning? Boneta Bill? Come on. These are minute issues. Throwing around words like “tyranny” and “bullying” and eluding to the IRS targeting people over this nonsense is downright foolish to say the least. I’m also curious as to what constitutes an “environmental zealot” and why the republican party should be so concerned about such voices being a part of the discussion. Furthermore if all you are saying about these people is true, that these people have in the past supported Democrats (jeez Deeds and Northrum? such liberals right) is it not a good thing that they want to align themselves with conservatives now? Perhaps they have more in common with you than you think. The likelihood that they are some kind of double agents secretly working for some dark liberal lord is more than a little ridiculous.

      Dom – I wonder why you dismiss the concerns of the Conservative Republicans who want leaders who are dedicated to the core principles that bind the group together. Wait, I remember, isn’t this part of the plan where you ridicule anyone who questions your premises? So if people insist that their leaders are principled and uphold the standards of the organization you simply ridicule them and try to marginalize them. Seems that has been going on for years and we see the results.

      If these individuals were seriously embracing the principles of the Republican organization I do not think they would actively be involved in the leadership of organizations who recently and currently are donating to the Democrat organizations and candidates. Kind of crazy to imagine pro-choice groups donating to pro-life organizations. Just does not make sense to have a principled position and then fund your own opposition.

      Hopefully the true Conservatives will come out and counter the efforts to dilute the party leadership with those who do not support the principles of the party and who support the opposition. We want leaders who will stand up for what we believe in and promote those principles in our electoral process.

    Wow folks. The comments here give a much more negative impression of the Cam supporters that anything I have seen from the Russell camp. Do you really think potential new republicans are going to be drawn to the party by all these types of comments?

      Then you are not getting their emails, Vox.
      Here is just a bit of one:
      “A group of tea-party and anti-zoning zealots, backed by out of county
      developers, are trying to take over the Fauquier County Republican Party. If
      they succeed next Saturday in winning the Fauquier County GOP Chairmanship and
      stacking the GOP County committee, they will be able to hand-pick pro-growth
      candidates for the County Board of Supervisors.”

      Just a small sample of the lies and distortion going on.

      Vox Veritas Vita (hopefully not after the Dubai website with the same name). Using the motto of the California State University as your handle instead of your real name really makes me question the veracity of your comments.

      I am not sure how you see the comments here as negative compared to others I have seen, and others that have been made to me. All the material I have received from the Jones campaign has been positive and I don’t even remember any direct attacks on the opposition. Just about the qualifications of Mr. Jones, his track record of activity supporting the Committee and Republican candidates in the County and State, and how he wants everyone to come together to help us follow the Party values in actions as well as deeds.

      I have learned a lot from the posts here, especially the posts from fictitious posters. It has given me a lot more to think about. I hope everyone who votes will think about what they are doing. Voting in the Canvas of the other party is a very sleazy move and anyone advocating this tactic is not being honest, and that again gives me great pause.

      I have to keep asking myself, what is to be gained by asking non-Republicans to get involved in our Party Leadership decisions or in the operation of our Party Committee. Maybe it is just me, but I thought the idea was to leverage the collective talents of the committed members to the Party to carry forth the ideals of the Party.

    I second Mr. Navarre’s plea! We need Mr. Jones, a no nonsense hard-working conservative who will help the Republicans become a thorn in the side of our Hillary sycophant governor’s tax and spend schemes.

    Did Scott Russell not understand that any candidate who took all 19 At Large Seats would still not have the majority of the Committee. There are 83 Seats available on the Fauquier County Republican Committee. Apparently Scott has not been involved here in Fauquier long enough to understand how the process works. I hope he will stay involved and become a real help. Madge Eicher

    I am guessing the “elements” are the tea party and liberty folks, given all the issues with slating that have pooped up recently in virginia beach and henrico.

    You. Mention his email that contained his list of favorables. Can you post it, I would be curious to see who is rubbing elbows with this guy.

      People in Fauquier who go against these people suddenly get audited by the IRS, and other retaliatory things that people have to be very careful what they say publicly.

      Cam Jones does have a slate of people. He and they will be there on Saturday.

      To say that the tea party is supported by developers is a lie they tell to confuse people. Everyone seems confused about the tea party so they just use that. They get that from there democrat playbook.

      Scott Russell slate is the elite no-growth, moribund, old guard ruling class now chumming up with 3 environmental zealots who are trying to dissolve the Republican Party. …………… Plain and simple. Who cares what happens to the little guy in the country class as long as we get our tax breaks.

    If you are silly enough to let us join, why not? You were silly enough to help fund the Terry McAuliffe campaign for us. All those donations to our conservation causes that we funneled over to Terry McAuliffe. So why not just join you and then we don’t have to work so hard. Silly Republicans.

    Hey, we already run the County BOS and Warrenton Town Council. So why not run the Republican Committee as well. Then we can get our folks elected without so much effort or money. Silly Republicans.

    New order coming. Our man Barak has already done so much to transform the Nation into our idea of perfect. Just wait till Hillary takes over. Silly Republicans.

    You just don’t get it. Silly Republicans, tricks are for Dems!
