The First Lady and I send our warmest greetings to those celebrating Juneteenth this year.
On this day 155 years ago, African Americans in Texas first heard the righteous and long-overdue words of General Order Number 3: “All slaves are free.” These words confirmed for still-enslaved people in Texas that the Union Army would enforce and defend their freedom, announced nearly 3 years earlier by President Abraham Lincoln in his Emancipation Proclamation
Fairfax County Republican Priscilla DeStefano was featured this week on ChoiceMedia.tv, the nation’s “education homepage.” Ms. DeStefano, who ran last year for the Board of Education, lauded President Donald Trump’s recent comments on the moral imperative of school choice.

For those of us who have lived in Fairfax County for more than a decade or two, we cannot believe how our once-great place to live has been decimated by a decade of Democrat rule.

But that does not mean the rate of taxes and spending must rise disproportionately relative to population growth
Cathy Ruse, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Human Dignity at Family Research Council, who authored the publication, wrote: “Well-funded international pressure groups have been extraordinarily successful in pushing agenda-driven curricula that sexualizes children and promotes a ‘sexual rights’ ideology among youth. School systems are devoting significant classroom time to these programs—70 classroom hours per child in some cases—even while American public schools are failing to fulfill their core mission
Throughout our Nation’s history, African-American music has expressed the pain and suffering brought on by injustice as well as the faith and joy of the resilient American spirit. Sam Cooke’s triumphant “A Change Is Gonna Come” gave wind to the sails of millions of African Americans in their righteous fight for equality during the Civil Rights Movement. The divine voice of Mahalia Jackson, the “Queen of Gospel,” helped heal our grieving Nation in the days following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.
The New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania governors were unprepared and made a policy decision that greatly harmed our seniors. Are the governors apologetic? Not in the least.

Saying people need to “stop rationalizing and excusing criminal activity,” members of the Project 21 black leadership network condemned the politically motivated riots that have erupted across America, and applaud the possibility of Antifa being designated a domestic terrorist organization.
Project 21 was founded 28 years ago in the wake of the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
With our nation mired in violence, the official Twitter account of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee heralded rioting as “an integral part of this country’s march towards progress,” in a now-deleted May 30 tweet.
Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts slammed the “reckless” tweet in a June 1 interview on WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall radio program.
Before going further on this exciting day for all America in space, I want to say a few words about the situation in Minnesota. The death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis was a grave tragedy. It should never have happened. It has filled Americans all over the country with horror, anger, and grief.
