Delegate Kathy Byron (R-Campbell) introduced HJ 715 to amend our state constitution. If ratified, the amendment would ensure that tax dollars are not used to fund abortions in Virginia. The proposed amendment states:
“No taxes or other revenues of the Commonwealth may be used to pay for abortions, provided that nothing herein shall prevent the use of such funds to preserve the life of the mother.”
The Eastern District Court selected a series of legally indefensible redistricting modules that attempts to give Democrats an advantage at every turn. The modules selected by the Court target senior Republicans, myself included, without a substantive basis in the law

FCRC will hold an “unofficial” meeting during 7:30 – 8:45 PM on Wednesday, January 23, at the James Madison High School Auditorium, 2500 James Madison Drive, Vienna, VA 22181.
(See the map at the end of the article for where to park and enter the school.)
Meeting check-in will start at 6:45 PM. Light snacks and beverages will be served but NOT dinner.
The meeting is a make-up for the official meeting scheduled for January 15 that was canceled because of school closing.
The meeting is “unofficial” because the near-term date for the meeting does not allow sufficient time for the 10-day meeting call required by FCRC’s Plan of Organization. As an “unofficial” meeting, FCRC will postpone any votes that might arise to the regularly scheduled February meeting. Requirements for meeting attendance will also be waived.
The reasons for holding the “unofficial” meeting are to: 1) provide information about the upcoming special election in the 86th Delegate District; 2) update FCRC members about plans for developing the party and supporting 2019 Republican candidates; and 3) gain the benefit of the presentation on communist / socialist influence on education originally scheduled for the meeting that was canceled.
Meeting Presentation: ACAT Exposes Communist / Socialist Influence on Education. The Anticommunism Action Team (ACAT) will review how communist/socialist ideology and tactics have adversely influenced American education.
The Anticommunism Action Team is an independent, unaffiliated grassroots group of concerned citizens. Its mission is “to discredit communist ideology and counter communist influence here and abroad.”
Led by Chris Wright, a lawyer and liberty activist, the group offers experienced speakers, news updates, opinion articles, videos, an informative website, and even a college course—all focused on exposing “the false allure of communism.”

Down of America.”
*How American education has been taken over by the Left.
Come to the FCRC meeting and hear how the Left’s takeover of America’s education system is harming our children and setting the stage for

As you know if you watched his address on Tuesday night, the President made a compelling case for building a barrier on our southern border. We currently have 2000 migrants crossing that border illegally every day and, if caught, demanding asylum, often on specious grounds.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, in 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported using at least one welfare program as compared to 35 percent of native-headed households. Compared to native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45 percent vs. 21 percent for natives) and Medicaid (50 percent vs. 23 percent for natives). In addition, murders, extortion, and human trafficking (i.e., slavery) committed by such gangs as MS-13 are both brutal and widespread.
Clearly, something must be done, but the new radical Democrat Party led by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want no part of fixing the problem.
Mr. Trump’s request for $5.7 billion to build a part of the barrier represents 0.13% of the overall budget of over $4 Trillion. Therefore, it’s not about the money,
