Catherine Crabill Doesn’t Need a Bullet Box…

…she just needs a revolver.

Yes, I imagine if a half a dozen or so Congressmen were tried, convicted, and executed, the rest of them would straighten out fast!  It is OUR fault these men and women betraying our country are NOT prosecuted for their obvious crimes against We the People and our Republic.

What “republic” is she talking about?  The People’s Republic of North Korea?!?!  Or perhaps this version of justice?

Just… just click on the link… and be ashamed.

One more reason to vote Wittman tomorrow.  Or six reasons, if you think about it.

    Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about, good old Islamic justice and beheadings in the town square at high noon! And she says she’s the “Tea Party” candidate?

  • Oh but they’d get a trial… that makes summary executions better, right?


    {cricket…. cricket…}

  • Dang. To think that this woman came kinda close to winning a seat in the General Assembly.

  • Tim J

    Maybe she should have run on a “waterboarding” platform as a way to extract confessions from “men and women betraying our country” for “their obvious crimes against We the People and our Republic”.

    Public executions would be held on a new reality TV show so that the “rest of them would straighten out fast!”. Obviously this means a Crabill do-over on the Constitution so that a “Crabill Posse” can hunt down these evildoers so they can “Hang ’em High”.

    Mathew Berry is just another self admitted Progressive government lawyer just like the guy he is trying to defeat Moran. What’s the point of trading one who is a out of the closet Progressive for another lying cheating scoundrel like Moran. Nothing Changes. For my money with all that is happening in the world we need someone with extensive military experience like Murray. At least he is not a progressive, and he is not a politician, and believes in the constitution an is not a fake. All good qualities and meets the Tea Party platform goals.

  • mytwocents

    I know everyone is entitled to their opinion but seriously…..this is insane.

    Not only Wittman has done an adequate job since his first election but the woman challenging him is essentially advocating violence. Ridiculous. What a waste of state resources!

  • livinthelife
  • We can only hope enough of the sane real Americans go vote today for Rob Wittman. It would be a great thing for the conservative electorate to make Catherine Crabhill a footnote in history–she is an embarrassment of the first order.

    I still can’t believe I had to vote for Albert Pollard last fall. She is THAT bad.

    It was only the next weekend at the Urbanna Oyster festival where I overheard a conversation by someone saying she was now so full of herself she was going to run against Rob Wittman. I asked her about that and she vehemently denied it. But here she is wasting taxpayer money on an open primary. I wonder the price tag for this election will be?

    They really should do background checks on these people. It is ironic that this person who declared bankruptcy not so long ago is now championing personal responsibility. This woman is dangerous.

  • Chipper J

    When did Crabill declare bankruptcy? Remember, last Congressional election, Dr. Hummel had to bow out because he failed to let people know that he declared bankruptcy…..THREE TIMES!

  • D.J. Spiker


    Regardless of how bad Crabill is, I would avoid publicly admitting you voted for a Democrat. That will get you kicked out the party, per the modified party plan.

  • steve vaughan

    You’d think the party plan would have an exception for cases where the party nominates someone certifiable.

  • I don’t know exactly when she declared bankrupty. I can assure you, however, my source is impeccable but for very good reasons this person cannot give me details–and even if they did, I would not post them here.

    It should all be a matter of public record.

  • Listen, VA GOP, if you are _not_ screaming for revolutionary war right now, then you are _NOT_ a conservative. No freaking way. And that is why we conservatives will be voting for the TEA party come 2nd November. That is right, GOP, come November, conservatives are gonna vote for the party that is screaming for _VIOLENT_ revolution! Conservatives sure as hell ain’t gonna vote for no stinkin’ RINO’s.

    Well, Mr Craig Kilby you are espousing a flat out lie regarding Mrs. Crabill declaring bankruptcy. Your so called source is either a liar or doesn’t know anything he/she is speaking of. I have known Catherine personally for all of her life and know full well her financial affairs. In fact she has never declared bankruptcy and has always paid every debt she or her family has ever owed. You are a liar, Mr. Kilby. So I challenge you to to come up with this “public record” or your “impeccable source” AND/OR email me ( directly or Catherine for that matter to discuss the lie you are speaking here. This is libel and that IN FACT is a crime.
    I expect you to make a correction to your statement.

  • Nancy Stanley

    And to those who are taking Catherine’s remarks out of context once again. Shame on you. Really, the reaching you and your like-minded fellows continue to do is so annoying. In fact the penalty for treason in the United States according to the United States Code at 18 U.S.C. § 2381 states that “whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.” So death is one of possible penalties for committing treason.

  • Ms Stanley,

    Perhaps Ms Crabill should think before she speaks, as this is not the first time it has happened. Or the second. Or third. Or fourth. Or fifth…

    Mr Bain,

    Musing that we should line up a half-dozen members of Congress is not conservative. It is fundamentally insane. Openly calling for violence is a crime. Mr Whitman will look forward to your vote on November 2nd.


  • Chipper J

    Ms. Stanley, you have done such a wonderful job quoting the definition of treason as laid out in 18 USC 2381, but I challenge you to now define ‘war’, the act in which treason is defined. And when I mean define, I want you to define it in the terms that the Founding Fathers would have used it when they drew up the Constitution. Then get back to me and we shall continue our conversation from there!

    Advocating violence in response to political oppression is a crime? Always? OK, well, when George Washington and Thomas Jefferson called for the head of King George III, did they commit a crime? Did they? In 1776, when our forefathers _violently_ opposed the British government here in America, did they commit a crime? Did they?

    Republicans, I have news for you. We conservatives have had it with you Republicans. You Republicans disgust us conservatives, most of whom will probably vote for the TEA party come November. Remember, GOP, you are _NOTHING_ without conservatives. NOTHING!!

    Freaking morons.

    — Paul D. Bain

  • D.J. Spiker


    To answer your questions:

    Yes, they committed a crime.
    Yes, they committed a crime.

    High treason against the crown. America subsequently went to war with England. 11 years later, our constitution was ratified and put into place.

    For an alleged lawyer, you’re kind of an idiot. I’m glad I won’t have any legal problems in the 1st district.

    Speaking as you do insults me as a conservative. Nutjobs like you give legitimate conservatives like me a bad name and bad reputation. Thankfully, we’ve done a very good job of painting you 99th district wackjobs into a corner, where you’ll stay.

  • Govgirl

    Paul – you need to do some reading in basic history of American political thought. As to your accusatioin – were Jefferson, Washington, et al, committing treason – the simple answer, yes and they knew it. They were well aware of the fact that if they lost they would hang for their actions, as traitors. HOWEVER, what you fail to realize is the situation which led to this “abolish of government” as Jefferson rights in the Declaration of Independence. The Founders lacked what we do not – representation in our lawmaking body. It is important to note that the Founders originally only saught representation in Parliament, NOT Independence. When it became clear that this would be universally denied to them and their NATURAL rights were being violated independence became the only option. It is also important to note that the Founders did not consider their actions revolutionary, they were not attempting to overthrow a government, just remove themselves from it. These may seem like fine points, but they are important ones if you are going to try and make parallels between 1776 and today.

    Paulie Boy!

    Define ‘conservative’ for us!

  • Libel’s a crime? When did that happen?

    I did a public record search and I’ve found bankruptcy records for a “Kathryn Crabill” but not a Catherine Crabill.

    Unless she spells her name weird, it’s not her.

  • NO, that is not her. Keep digging. You’ll eventually find the real one. The one who ran for Congress. Why not make this simple and just ask her directly? Bankruptcy records are not easy to find, so I doubt you found anything on a “public records search.” And this has nothing to do with libel.

  • Oh yeah, I double checked this. No matter how she spells her name, it is her. Sorry to bust your bubble. Bankruptcy court records are probably in Federal Court in Richmond. So keep digging.

    Did I hit a nerve? Isn’t 12% of the vote bad enough? Why not just call it a day?

  • Craig, it was a “public record search” on LexisNexis. If it’s not on there, I don’t know where else it is. There were only 14 records for the last name “Crabill” in Virginia. Unless she filed it in some other state, it’s not exactly easy to find.

  • @Brian. Well, it’s either true or it is not true. If it is not true, I will be the first to publicly aplogize.

    I doubt there could be two people named Catherine/Kathryn Crabill in little ole Lancaster County declaring bankruptcy. Sort of explains the rant on her web page about the judicial system.

    But in a world where carpenters are resurrected, anything is possible. (Yes, I stole that line from the movie “Lion in Winter. It’s much more amusing when spoken by Katherine Hepburn…or is that Kathryn Hepburn?)

  • @Craig Kilby
    I’ve checked the records for the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia through PACER, and there’s no record for a Catherine Thorsen Crabill.

    There are records for a Kathryn S. Crabill and Warren H. Crabill of Gainesville, Virginia, but nothing for Catherine T. Crabill, formerly of Irvington, and currently of White Stone, Virginia.

  • “I would avoid publicly admitting you voted for a Democrat. That will get you kicked out the party, per the modified party plan.” – DJ Spiker

    DJ, would that include endorsements? Campaign contributions? Just wondering.

  • D.J. Spiker

    Per the modified party plan yes, if you publicly support/endorse/donate to a Democrat in a race with a Republican, there are consequences.

    If your follow-up question is about Scott Rigell or Bert Mizusawa or Chuck Smith (who have all donated to Democrats at sometime or another), there is no retroactive penalty or retroactive reach, it applies going forward from November, 2009.

  • Mike Barrett

    It is a sad commentary when petty party politics transcends doing what is best for our nation, our Commonwealth, or our city.

  • The relevant paragraph from the Party Plan:
    “A member of an Official Committee is held to a higher standard of support for nominees of the Republican Party than an
    individual who merely participates in a mass meeting, party canvass, convention or primary. Therefore, a member of an
    Official Committee is deemed to have resigned his Committee position if he (a) makes a reportable contribution to and/or
    (b) allows his name to be publicly used by and/or (c) makes a written or other public statement in support of a candidate
    in opposition to a Republican nominee in a Virginia General or Special Election. Such member may be re-instated by a
    majority vote of the other members of the Committee.”

  • I am not a Party member per se, and I hold no position within the Party, and don’t plan to. Still, I vote Republican consistently and have, in my past, held elective office as a Republican. The only time I voted for a Democrat was last fall when the choice was between Catherine Crabhill (who is NOT a Republican though she ran on that ticket, which is another story) and Albert Pollard, a very well-liked person who had held the seat previously. I prefer to keep my right to speak my mind over being kicked out of a GOP Party position. If this somehow bars me from voting in the GOP primary in the future, so be it. I proudly voted for Rob Wittman and as far as I know, I can do so again come this fall. If someone passes a law telling me otherwise, I will see them in Court.

  • @Craig Kilby
    Nice how you obfuscated out of responding to my comment that there has been no bankruptcy filing by a Catherine T. Thorsen.

  • DJ, I was also thinking of Mayor Will Sessoms and Paul Lantiegne and others.

    Good to see who gets away with it. I guess you have to start somewhere.

  • Nancy Stanley

    Oh, Craig Kilby—I am Catherine’s sister…now will you be satisified with my reply above? You are a liar and are contributing to the spread of a lie. STOP! Enough! Why are you SO determined to assasinate another person’s character who has done nothing wrong OR illegal. Each of us as individuals have a right to run for office (as allowed by the law). Incumbent does not translate to life long term. Everyone requires challenging!!!! Everyone!!! Catherine Thorsen Crabill has never filed bankruptcy. CALL HER and ask if you must – she is in the phone book! She actually answers her phone when she’s at home. But stop the lies. It calls into question your character. Really, give it a rest. AND be humble enough (that would improve your level of character) to apologize and state that you are WRONG! Catherine, even if you disagree with what she says or stands for, has the depth character to apologize publicly when she has been wrong. So either apologize or STOP criticizing her and attacking her. It’s cowardless.

    Nancy Thorsen Stanley

  • Nancy Stanley

    And yes, her name is spelled C-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E as in Catherine the Great!

    And if you actually knew her you would find that she is. But you don’t so you won’t. And you throw your fiery darts from afar…because it’s easy for you to.

  • Nancy Stanley

    definition of LIBEL:

    libel 1) n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or his/her reputation, by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt of others. Libel is the written or broadcast form of defamation, distinguished from slander which is oral defamation. It is a tort (civil wrong) making the person or entity (like a newspaper, magazine or political organization) open to a lawsuit for damages by the person who can prove the statement about him/her was a lie.

  • Lee Talley

    Who cares about bankruptcy. How about the whole Truther thing. Her ideas about Oklahoma, her saying that many in Congress need to be tried and executed for treason.

    How about these rantings?

  • @Nancy Stanley
    Libel is not a crime in Virginia unless someone has insulted a woman’s virtue and chastity (Va. Code §18.2-417).

    Besides, everything that I’ve said or written has been true, as is this blog post and comments with the exception of the junk coming out of Craig Kilby.

  • First of all, Catherine is a public figure. So in order to prevail in a defamation case, which as Timothy says is not a crime only a civil action, she would have to prove that Craig was acting with malicious intent. That’s an extremely high standard and one that I don’t expect she could meet based on the comments in this thread.

    So just call him a jerk, and be done with it. Stop with the faux-lawyering.

  • If Ms. Crabill wants to sue me for libel, I am sure she has a very capable lawyer. So do I. The Truth is its own defense.

  • @Craig Kilby
    There’s no truth to what you’ve been saying, there’s absolutely no record of any bankruptcy.

    You said that “[b]ankruptcy records are not easy to find”. Really? I spent an hour waiting for the federal government to process my PACER registration and I have access to every record associated with bankruptcies filed in every court in Virginia.

    You’re full of crap, so why don’t you find something important to do? Maybe if people learn how full of crap you are, it’ll have a negative impact on your business.

  • Correction my last post. Last sentence in the second paragraph should end: “[…] I have access to every record associated with bankruptcies filed in every court in the United States.

  • Craig Kilby

    i have interrogated my source on this many times based on the vehement denials by some here. My source is steadfast in his statements. I cannot name this person nor the financial institution for which this person works–one of many parties in the suit. Suffice it to say, this may be one reason why the voter turn-out in Lancaster was an incredible 20% compared to the rest of the state of roughly 5%, though the results were just the same as elsewhere as in the 1st district. A resounding YES to Rob Wittman. A resounding NO to Catherine Crabill. As I stated earlier, if I am wrong, I’ll be the very first to admit it. I think I made it clear from the beginning my information came from “reliable hearsay.” I do not know this to be a fact.

    The person who told me this had no dog in this fight, is completely apolitical except to serve on juries when called to do so, and had no reason to make it up out of whole cloth. The office in which this person works, however, was elated at the election results. As were 85% of Lancaster GOP primary voters.

  • Old Redneck

    Didn’t the Crabill’s move to Virginia from Arizona (or one of those arid western states) — one step ahead of the law?

    Maybe that’s where they declared bankruptcy.
