Corey Stewart is At-Large Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Prince William County, Virginia, and he wants to be Governor of Virginia. He has a good record, but this account should give his supporters pause.
The Geller Report reported recently that “a hearing on yet another mega-mosque project in America is scheduled in Prince William County, Virginia for 6 p.m., Tuesday, June 27 at the James J. McCourt Building.” Here is an account I received from a Prince William County resident about that meeting. Stewart supporters, and lovers of freedom, take note.
Thank you for the great work you do. I am a resident of Prince William County, Virginia, and was up until 3:30am this morning watching the debate over the permit for the Muslim Brotherhood sponsored Mega Mosque in the western, rural part of the county.
After this morning’s vote, I believe a follow up to last week’s article is desperately needed to sound the alarm about what happened at the meeting last night and how Corey Stewart cowered in the face of threat and intimidation to ultimately allow Sharia Law to trump settled Prince William County law- http://gellerreport.com/2017/06/price-willima-mega-mosque.html/

I wouldn’t recommend you spent 8 hours listening to endless list of lies from the speakers in support of the terror Mosque, but you should watch the last 55 minutes of the debate when the Supervisors finally get a chance to chime in and vote.
What happened, to me, is unfathomable, especially coming from someone like Corey Stewart (and the campaign he just ran).
You were right. Corey was 110% bullied by the ADAMS Mosque and their associates (though I don’t agree that Jeff Sessions would allow his department to file suit against the county).
In the last 55 minutes of the video, he is clearly asking incredibly leading questions to back up his predetermined vote in favor of the Mosque AND their demands to use the taxpayer funded sewer that several churches have been denied access to over the last 20 years.
Not only did he dominate and dictate the debate according to his desired outcome to see the Mosque built AND receive an exemption from current county law, but the most maniacal moment(s) happened in the last five minutes where he coerced and intimidated the oldest member of the board (think Robert Byrd before he died, but with probably worse dementia) into voting for the taxpayer funded sewer system after he had voted repeatedly against it throughout the night and had given thorough reasons for doing so.
This gentleman, John Jenkins (a Democrat mind you), stated throughout the hearing that he was opposed to the Mosque receiving access to the sewer (see the 7 hour 22 minute mark – ADAMS made a demand of “no taxpayer sewer, no Mosque”) and voted accordingly at the 7:39 mark.
As a result, the motion tied 4-4 and failed. Hallelujah. Night over, right?
At 7:40, Supervisor Lawson (opposed) put in a motion for her vote, but is ultimately ignored by Stewart. Subsequently, a Democrat member, Frank Principi, offers a motion to split the vote in two; one, for allowing the Muslim Brotherhood funded Mosque to be built and two, to vote to allow them an exemption to use the taxpayer funded sewer that has been denied to so many churches in the past.
Stewart shuts down and won’t even hear debate over that request and immediately moves to separate the two votes as he sees that as his best option at passing.
At 7:42, after concerns from the opposed board members, they seek the opinion of the county attorney on whether or not they can pivot from the established written agenda vote and vote on the two issues separately. The county attorney informs Stewart that a 2/3 majority is needed to add additional votes to the agenda. Stewart loses again and the taxpayers of Prince William County win, right?
Seeing that the vote and current rules of order are not going his way, Stewart calls for a 10 minute recess to “discuss” the number of Supervisors needed to vote on additional amendments.
15 minutes passes and guess what? The bully Chairman, “Chameleon” Corey Stewart, somehow manages to get the rules changed from the 2/3 majority needed to vote on additional items to only a simple majority of the eight members present….which he gets.
Corey cuts off any additional debate after it becomes obvious to everyone that he has had the rules changed in a machiavellian style to get his vote. Simple questions about why an additional vote is necessary or even legal are immediately cut off by Mr. Stewart.
Of course, Corey gets his way and they proceed to get the 5/8 vote needed to allow for separate votes on the Mosque and the sewer.
The board, despite ADAMS’s ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, votes unanimously to approve the mosque.
Next, Supervisor Jenkins ONCE AGAIN votes with three Republicans (two other Republicans besides Stewart voted FOR the motion – Caddigan and Nohe) and the vote deadlocks again at 4-4 – praise God, the motion is defeated – again!
Corey wouldn’t have it. Instead of accepting the third failed vote for the taxpayer funded sewer for the mosque, Stewart calls out Jenkins (who had been opposed all night long) and says “wait, Mr. Jenkins, I think you voted inconsistently there”. Mr. Jenkins did not vote inconsistently. He voted the same way he said he was going to and had subsequently voted all night long. He only voted for the motion to allow the mosque and the sewer to be voted on separately.
AT 7:48, Stewart then proceeds to say “for those that voted in favor, we need a motion to RECONSIDER”. Why? Jenkins had already stated he was opposed to the sewer orally and then voted TWICE against it. Stewart simply wouldn’t take “no” for an answer in caving in to the mosque and giving them a special deal to use the county sewer line that so many Christian churches had previously been denied.
Supervisor Lawson naturally inquires how there can be a motion to reconsider when the vote just failed – again. She also asks about her amendment (the only one not to be voted on yet) and Stewart summarily dismisses her request to vote on her amendment once more.
At 7:49 Supervisor Candland points out the obvious that Supervisor Jenkins has made his opinion clear three times on the vote to allow the mosque a county sewer line.
Stewart of course ignores and then implores the board to vote to reconsider once again even though a second motion had not been made. The board doesn’t follow his directives to vote initially because there was not a second motion. Stewart proceeds to demand that they “please vote on the motion to reconsider, still without a second. Please vote YES on the motion to reconsider”. After he verbally implored the board to vote yes (I would have to think that violates some kind of rule), he then specifically tells a tired and elderly Supervisor Jenkins to “please vote on the motion, John. Please vote yes”
Aghast by Mr. Stewart’s actions, members of the board and the audience begin to yell at Mr. Stewart that he cannot tell Mr. Jenkins how to vote like that. Undaunted, the much younger and intimidating Mr. Stewart continues to tell Mr. Jenkins that he (Stewart) is voting for the bill, in another attempt to coerce Mr. Jenkins to switch his vote.
Finally, after nearly 8 hours of debate, at 3:30 in the morning, Supervisor Jenkins finally relented to Corey Stewart’s relentless intimidation tactics and voted to give the ADAMS Mosque full access to the Prince William County sewer line – the same sewer line that Mr. Stewart has denied countless Christian churches to over the years.
I know there’s a lot of technical rules and such here, but I think it’s important to provide context of just how far and how devious Corey Stewart was in making sure that the Muslim Brotherhood funded Mosque was not only built on land and in a neighborhood already devastated by intense traffic, but land that the Prince William County Board of Supervisors had previously made law (and before last night, good standing) which stated the land was off limits to large structures, such as a 22,500 square foot monstrosity in residential neighborhood.
Clearly, CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, and associates of the ADAMS Mosque got to Corey Stewart in an unbelievable way.
The lengths he was willing to go to provide special breaks for this Mosque that he had previously denied Christian churches in the county is not normal.
The rule of law in Prince William County was subverted this morning because of intimidation tactics, and the cowardice of the county Board Chairman, Corey Stewart, in favor of Sharia Law.
God help us.
You have a valuable voice. Please watch the last hour of the meeting for yourself and let people know what our Chairman in Prince William County did to the God-fearing “rural crescent” region.
