Approaching its ironically-timed Groundhog Day “Return to School Working Session,” FCPS released on Friday a presentation that reveals yet again that the principal factor in the inability to open schools is not about metrics, or community spread of a virus, but the chronic inability of FCPS to manage its staff, and the apparent unwillingness of many staff to return to work. The presentation already sets up the game board for the inevitable “pause” for all students in grades 3-12 in Fairfax County…
Virginia Delegate Kirk Cox joined the Fairfax GOP Saturday night, live on Facebook, for a robust discussion of the issues facing our state.

On January 26, 2021, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted to adopt the Trust Policy which will prohibit the county’s law enforcement personnel from cooperating with federal immigration agents. All nine Democrat supervisors voted in favor of the new policy, while the lone Republican supervisor opposed it. The intended purpose of this policy is to reduce fears of being deported among individuals residing in Fairfax County illegally when they seek public assistance.
Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts joined WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall radio program Wednesday, to break down the latest failures of state and local Democrat officials — from law enforcement to vaccination to K-12 education.
Knotts’s WMAL interview came on the heels of news that Fairfax County formally became a sanctuary jurisdiction for unlawful migrants. “The Democrats are picking which laws they’d like to enforce and which ones they don’t,” Knotts said.
With public schools in Virginia failing to offer in-person classes five days a week, a majority of residents support measures for the state to provide financial support for parents who have opted to enroll their students in alternative education systems, according to a poll released this week. The poll, conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling and Strategy, found that 61% of registered voters would support giving parents a portion of the state’s K-12 funding to use for home, virtual or private education if public schools remain closed for in-person classes.
Dead last. Pretty much where we ranked in COVID testing last year. Virginia won’t reach 51st only because there is no 51st.
Accountability? None so far. Will the Governor please tell us why Virginia’s Health Commissioner still has his job? Will someone ask him that question in his next press conference?
The Virginia Senate Privileges & Elections Committee will be considering SB 1101; if enacted, the bill would enter Virginia into the National Popular Vote Compact. This would force Virginia to award its 13 electoral votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the national popular vote — even if that candidate loses in Virginia.
Chairman Steve Knotts shared the following message with the Fairfax GOP membership on Sunday, January 17:
The Fairfax County Republicans have repeatedly condemned all political violence and do so again in the wake of the attack on the Capitol. We remain grateful supporters of our dedicated law enforcement community and mourn the loss of life, including Officer Brian D. Sicknick and Officer Howard Liebengood, as well as veteran Ashli Babbitt.
President Joe Biden wasted no time filling the D.C. swamp upon his return to power. For four years President Donald Trump worked to drain the swamp. Now Biden, in an attempt to erase Trump’s accomplishments, will reverse that. Biden will take Washington back to the pre-Trump business-as-usual state of affairs by reversing nine of President Donald Trump’s executive orders.
Four years ago, we launched a great national effort to rebuild our country, to renew its spirit, and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short, we embarked on a mission to make America great again — for all Americans.
As I conclude my term as the 45th President of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together.
President Trump’s 1776 Commission unveiled its highly-anticipated report on Monday. The White House hailed the report’s release with the following statement:
“1776 Commission—comprised of some of America’s most distinguished scholars and historians—has released a report presenting a definitive chronicle of the American founding, a powerful description of the effect the principles of the Declaration of Independence have had on this Nation’s history…
On August 28, 1963, just a century after the Emancipation Proclamation, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led more than 200,000 Americans in a March on Washington in pursuit of jobs and freedom for all people. Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, he called on Americans “to sit down together at the table of brotherhood” and meet our promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.
