Harry Jackson, whose son attends Thomas Jefferson High School of Science and Technology (“TJ”), is blasting the magnet school’s new, “anti-Asian” admissions scheme. “TJ is 79 percent Asian,” Jackson notes. “Their new admissions process, with surgical precision, targets the Asian community, reducing their numbers down to 40 percent. This is called racial discrimination, and it is wrong.”
On Thursday, political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin delivered remarks outlining his plan to care for our veterans, champion their concerns, connect them with resources, get them the proper care, and reduce barriers on their capital and employment opportunities.

In a recent interview with AJ+, embattled school board member Abrar Omeish “doubled down” on her anti-Israel screeds, which many have characterized as hateful and needlessly divisive, if not deeply anti-Semitic, in nature. “There is no chance I am resigning,” Omeish told AJ+, which is owned by Al Jazeera and funded by the government of Qatar.
Omeish created a firestorm of controversy by accusing Israel of “apartheid” and “colonization.”
Virginia Democrats have nominated a career politician with a record of broken promises, who is intent on dividing our Commonwealth.

More than a dozen volunteers, from across the Lee/Mount Vernon area, gathered on Saturday, May 15 to remove litter alongside Franconia Road.

The service project was organized by the Knights of Columbus Council #9407, based at St. Lawrence Church on Franconia Road.
Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts joined WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall radio program last week to discuss the Republican Party of Virginia’s new slate of candidates for statewide office: Glenn Youngkin for Governor; Winsome Sears for Lieutenant Governor; and Jason Miyares for Attorney General.

The Republican Party of Virginia could not be happier with how smoothly and efficiently our convention was run today.

It is a promising sign of things to come that so many Republicans from across Virginia came out in record numbers and supported their candidates at the grassroots level.
