The Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) today announced it has filed a legal action against the Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Virginia Department of Elections seeking declaratory and injunctive relief based upon the invalid Declaration of Candidacy filed by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe that would result in McAuliffe’s disqualification from appearing on any general election ballot.
Local parent-activist Rory Cooper joined Thursday’s Vince Coglianese Show to discuss the grassroots, citizen-led efforts to remove Fairfax County School Board members Elaine Tholen, Laura Jane Cohen, and Abrar Omeish.
After more than 5,000 valid signatures to recall Elaine Tholen were submitted, the case to remove the embattled school board member was dismissed on August 20 — at the request of Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney James Hingely.
Large research universities have evolved into amalgamations of housing complexes, food service industries, semi-pro sports franchises, health systems, research enterprises, vocational training centers, and education systems. The administrative design of complex universities is such that they are nearly incapable of being efficiently managed.
Winsome Sears, Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, joined CPAC NOW’s “America Uncancelled” program Wednesday night. Drawing on her own background in the U.S. Marines, Sears addressed the Biden Administration’s utterly botched military withdrawal from Afghanistan. The candidate emphasized the need to support the many veterans who live in our Commonwealth.
“Parents proved today that we can mount a massive grassroots effort to gather thousands of signatures to recall a school board member. We are pleased to have won in court, but unfortunately it appears the fix was in when Mr. Descano handpicked his replacement from Albemarle County, James Hingely,” said Dee O’Neal, Open FCPS Coalition founder.
The prevailing narrative of racial grievance has been corrupting the instruction of American history and the humanities for many decades, but has accelerated dangerously over the past year. The most damaging effects of such instruction fall on lower income minority children, who are implicitly told that they are helpless victims with no power or agency to shape their own futures.
Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin’s campaign today announced massive support from Virginia’s law enforcement community with endorsements from 50 Sheriffs. Earlier today, Youngkin released an ad exposing McAuliffe as too dangerous and too extreme to tackle Virginia’s rising violent crime problem.
Former CIA Director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is thanking and praising our troops, while lamenting the Biden Administration’s utter bungling of the nation’s long-awaited military withdrawal from Afghanistan. “Our young men and women did amazing work there, and it was time to get our team home,” Pompeo tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “We could have done it in a way that would have reflected well on America and would have protected the interests we had.”
Critical to empowering voters and, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “a government of the people, by the people and for the people” is the elimination of the gerrymandered electoral districts in Virginia. To that end, in November 2020, Virginians approved a constitutional amendment that established a bipartisan commission (composed of eight legislators and eight citizens) to draw new congressional, state senate and delegate district maps.
Today, political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin issued the following statement on the Virginia Department of Health’s statewide mask mandate for K-12 schools:
“With today’s student mask mandate announcement, Ralph Northam, Terry McAuliffe and Richmond liberals have made clear that they will stop at nothing to impose their will and take away parents’ ability to decide what’s best for our kids.
A new ad from Republican Glenn Youngkin is blasting Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s embrace of “defund the police” extremists. “What is Terry McAullife’s plan? Refusing to meet with police officers; touting endorsements from extreme left-wing groups that want to defund the police and abolish ICE,” the ad notes. “No wonder the murder rate went up 43 percent when McAuliffe was governor. He put violent criminals first and victims last.”
Today, Virginians for Safe Communities (VSC) joined with notable concerned citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia to ask the Virginia State Bar to launch an inquiry into serious and recurring instances of misconduct by the office of the Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney, Steve Descano.
