Still reeling from months of isolation and difficulties caused by the lackluster roll out of remote learning last Spring, many parents put on a brave face. They endured, fully assuming remote learning was a short-term blip that would soon end. However, the situation has become more dire with the majority of public schools across the Commonwealth using remote learning for the foreseeable future…
At the July 29th Library Board of Trustees meeting, my appointee Phil Rosenthal made a statement about the need for more diverse views to be represented in the library catalog’s highlighted books. He and other trustees pointed out that there is no review process for choosing recommended reads for the library catalog and that has led to an unbalanced selection. Since that meeting I have become very concerned by how partisan interests have defamed Mr. Rosenthal, a long-standing public servant…
The 2020 Republican National Convention was a great success, in terms of both substance and flair. As Breitbart’s Jonathan Pollack noted: “Over four nights, we saw speaker after speaker telling the stories of African Americans, of immigrants, of women — and of how President Trump had fought for them all.”
In historic remarks Thursday night, delivered in front of the White House, President Trump struck a patriotic, optimistic chord…
Investigative journalist Asra Nomani was on WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall radio program last week, to discuss leftist attacks on race-blind, merit-based admissions to Fairfax County’s Thomas Jefferson School for Science and Technology (TJ). “In this new era of woke activism, they want to bring in quotas and lotteries that are essentially race-based admissions criteria,” Nomani told Mornings on the Mall co-hosts Vincent Coglianese and Mary Walter.
Former Lieutenant Governor John H. Hager, who later served as Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, died Sunday. He was 83 years old. In addition to his long record of public service in Virginia, Hager was assistant secretary for special education and rehabilitative services during the second Bush Administration.
A Biden presidency would be a disaster for everyday Americans. If given the chance, Joe Biden will endanger your family’s security, infringe upon your rights, increase your cost of living, lower your home’s value, and hurt your 401(k) – all while killing countless jobs.
For starters, Biden wants to take away your choice to live in the leafy suburbs. During the Obama-Biden Administration, the federal government began trying to increase the population density of the suburbs and to take away the ability of local governments and residents to determine what type of housing was built.
The Fairfax County Office of Elections is looking to hire seasonal, hourly employees in the following areas: in-person absentee voting at satellite locations (about 40 people needed); processing mailed absentee ballots (about 200 people needed); and other office opportunities (limited people needed).
Pay is approximately $14 per hour. According to the Office of Elections, “Candidates will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis”
Last month, Suparna Dutta spent countless hours researching how her son could safely return to school this fall as a rising sophomore at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a sprawling campus of classrooms, laboratories and open spaces with names like “Gandhi Commons” and “Einstein Commons,” outside the nation’s capital here off Braddock Road. Little did she know that a secretive “task force” assembled by orders of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam was quietly meeting to discuss legislating radical changes to the school
Superintendent Scott Brabrand served on a statewide taskforce that waived school district accreditation for the 2021-2022 school year! Let that sink in. As the largest school district in the Commonwealth of Virginia, I can only imagine the outside influence FCPS brought to bear on this decision.
Why is this significant? As the Virginia Department of Education’s (DOE) website describes, the Standards of Accreditation regulations “establish the state accountability system for the Commonwealth’s public schools and set the requirements students must meet to earn a high school diploma.”
Manga Anantatmula, the Republican nominee for Congress in Virginia’s 11th District, discussed her candidacy on WMAL’s Larry O’Connor Show Friday afternoon. Anantatmula is running to unseat incumbent Democrat Gerry Connolly (“the poster child for term limits,” as O’Connor called him).
Anantatmula blasted Connolly’s “far-left” record, noting that he votes with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 90 percent of the time.
Aliscia Andrews, the Republican nominee for Congress in Virginia’s 10th District, joined Fox & Friends Thursday morning to discuss “the suburban mom vote.” Andrews listed public safety, job growth and education as the biggest issues for suburban women this year. “It’s so important that we show families they can be safe in America and we can thrive in America again,” Andrews said. “That’s what people are really looking for specifically in VA-10.”
Over the last several decades, Trump has given generously to heroes, the sick, and those in need. While the liberal media would have you believe that Trump is a virulent racist, it should be noted that a majority of the individuals who were recipients of these acts of kindness were racial or ethnic minorities.
In 1986, a Georgia farmer, whose farm had been hit by a severe drought, committed suicide…
