FAIRFAX COUNTY, Virginia – Fairfax County Public Schools made a show of defying Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s order that schools respect parental rights on masking on Tuesday, with an assistant principal standing in front of the school to suspend students without masks, and a public relations staffer who said the media was not allowed to watch the conflict between state and local governments play out. At one classroom exterior door, a teacher in a dark mask and a full-face plastic shield resembled Darth Vader as she peered through the glass and, after seeing a masked child out front, opened the door a crack to let him in.


Absolutely outrageous!!

No surprise at all. Fairfax County is the home of hundreds of thousands of DC bureaucrats.

Gov. Youngkin had better respond fast, hard, and mercilessly to destroy this illegal and unconstitutional rebellion and punish all those people in positions of power that are part of it!!!! Drag this assistant principal off in handcuffs in front of everyone!!!! Drag off any teachers in handcuffs in front of their students to show that that disobeying the law is not how you fight the law!!! That is what the fascist pro-mask and pro-vaccine governors and mayors are doing all over the country, and if it's good for the goose, it's good for the gander!!!!

A best defense from contagion by an airborne pathogen is distance. I teach. I've been closed up in a box with 120 students every school day. During the past two years, we have had only 55 students out with the flu. This is out of a school population of 1100 over a period of two years. That's a small percentage. Teachers are exposed to 120 or so students every day. Only three teachers during the past two years have been out with the flu. And, who knows where any of these patients actually got infected. The truth is - people don't get sick at school any more than any other place.

NYPD arrested a family, including a 9 year old at a museum this week. They defied the Governor’s edict on vaccines. I think it makes perfect sense to arrest anyone at the school who denied these kids entry. NY set the precedent. Cuff ‘em. No bail.

Youngkin is making Trump's mistake. Don't play their game. He can end up spend his entire term chasing his tail and being taunted by these people. Send in State Troupers in mass. They want to use police to force compliance of their policies, in direct opposition to The Governor? Oh, he has more POLICE. Do to them what they are doing to the children, parents, and press. He has the law on his side. Throw DOWN. There is a new boss in town and he got elected for the very specific purpose of correcting this school district. Simple, do the job you were elected and mandated to do. Do it on camera. People will CHEER!

Of all the things that FCPS apparatchiks should fall on their sword over, a mask mandate is not one of them. The DC beltway types that infest NoVA are in extreme denial over their supposed cause and lost control. This will not end well for them. Job termination, state civil and criminal liability (to include conspiracy between the school system and the teacher's union) are just around the corner. Elections. Have. Consequences.

I wonder if watching the conference chaired by Senator Johnson which included many physician and viral authorities, would change some minds and mindless policies. Included Drs Malone and Rish among many others. Somehow, I doubt it, since the motives of the rule-mandate makers, politicians, are not to protect people, but to gain power and money. It is worrisome when I hear that OANN is being eliminated by some distribution sources, just as Senator Paul is, for telling the truth with facts. Shameful and dangerous for our formerly great country which prized “free speech”.

Democrats are a lawless bunch. The only authority they recognize is their own. This is one of the reasons we are in such a miserable state in this country. They know they are breaking the law, yet they do not care. This is the same mentality that the snatch ‘n grabbers have. They do what they want, when they want. You cannot operate in an open society when half the population disregards the laws of the country. Also, what a great example for their kids.

The fact that parents are still submitting their kids to this abuse makes me wonder about them. It isn't about what you can't afford, it is about the high cost to society what you are rearing in your homes. Homeschool or a Christian school, but get your kids out of these public school systems.

Again, I say, the general public (and this reporter) are so ignorant of our Constitutional framework and are in desperate need of mass education to defend themselves and this Country. There are 51 sovereign governments in this County. Fairfax County is not among them. Fairfax County merely enjoys whatever power the Commonwealth of Virginia sends its way. Those officials were acting in the manner of an illegal COVID Klan. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in criminal court and civil court for deprivation of civil rights (equal protection).

The Governor should outlaw the Teacher's Unions in VA. Then send in the State Police to either round up, or hand termination notices to all school personnel who defy the optional mask policy. Without the Unions to back them up, the individual miscreants will quickly fold.

I said it from the start and am sad to have been proven right: The mask mandate is not and never has been about public health. It is about (a) conditioning you to obey, without question or introspection, and (b) acting as a ubiquitous visual command control to the public that when the government says something is a crisis, it is, demanding instant and total submission.

These teachers and administrators are insane. I live in Arizona where life is normal!!! All students are in school. It's up to them if they want to wear a mask. All of our restaurants are open (no masks). All of our stores are open(no masks). We have a few Covid cases but none are life threatening. And we can get Ivermectin and HCQ. Why are these citizens putting up with this nonsense? No vaccine passports. No mandates. A few have tried but with no success. Too many freedom loving Americans here.

The Virginia governor should send in the state's National Guard to enforce the student's civil rights, the opposite of what the Arkansas governor did in 1957 by using his NG troops to prevent the black "Little Rock 9" students from entering Central High School. Force Biden to follow his leftist masters and do the opposite of what Eisenhower did and send in the 101st Airborne Division's troops to close the schools to the students of normal parents, you know - the parents who actually pay for the schools. Let the TV cameras roll in showing how the left, from local school boards to the Chief Executive, suborns truancy by preventing students from attending their schools.

“I’ve heard from a lot of parents who share my sentiments, who believe that masks are harmful to kids, who obviously recognize that these paper masks and cloth masks are absolutely doing nothing but making it harder to breath, harder to communicate, harder for them to learn, but they didn’t want to speak out, they didn’t want to take this stand, because they were afraid of the blowback.”

President Joe Biden presents himself as an avuncular good ol’ boy from Scranton. But he’s not that at all. Aside from his creepy behavior with women and children (c’mon, who sniffs hair?), he’s also a cold-blooded politician who has ruthlessly made his way in politics by slashing and burning his opponents. Of course, he’s no different from his predecessors — you don’t get to be president unless you’re a real, well, let’s just say the nickname for Richard. The great thing about former President Donald Trump was clueing us into this: All these guys are calculating Machiavellis — Bill Clinton, George W.

South Carolina House Bill 4848, also called the “don’t ask” bill, would make questions about a person’s COVID-19 status a misdemeanor crime. “Notwithstanding another provision of law to the contrary, any employee, officer, agent, or other representative of a public, nonprofit, or private entity who inquires about the COVID-19 vaccination status of any student, employee, member, or anyone else seeking admission on the entity’s premises is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than fourteen thousand dollars

The failures of President Joe Biden's first year in office are obvious to all. Inflation is raging. COVID is raging. Crime is spiking in some big cities. The U.S.-Mexico border is a mess. The American withdrawal from Afghanistan was a mess. And with it all, the president and his party are obsessed, most of all, with passing a voting rules bill that would help ensure their future election by federalizing the voting system along lines favorable to Democrats. It's hard to avoid the conclusion that Democrats, and the president, are spending too much time focusing on issues that are not top voter concerns. That has created a huge opportunity for Republicans.

There's nothing petty about petty crime. Tolerate it, and society descends into disorder. You're standing in line at Starbucks and watch a freeloader go to the front, pick out a sandwich and walk out without paying. No one says a word. Or you pay your bills, then find out thieves have robbed the blue USPS box to abscond with your checking information and empty your account. That happened to me last week. The thieves fish mail out of the box or use stolen USPS keys sold on the internet. This crime is surging, but the police and banks shrug their shoulders and advise going directly to the post office or using electronic banking.

While Nancy Pelosi often gets called out as the Congresswoman that knows how to make money day trading based on upcoming legislation and things that only the legislature knows to be ture, she’s hardly the only one that does so. In fact, Congress as a whole beat the S&P 500 in 2021, according to a shocking report from Unusual Whales. According to that report, 105 members of Congress were involved in over 3,500 trades last year, selling somewhere in the range of $290 million in stocks. Further, 6 members of Congress were involved in over 270 options contract transactions totaling about $140 million,

Joe Biden’s presidency is one year old—and it’s a total nightmare. The nation is still divided. Omicron is sweeping the nation. Inflation is through the roof. The grocery store has bare shelves. The supply chain crisis is ongoing. The border crisis is out of control. The Afghanistan withdrawal was a nightmare. We might see another embassy evacuation in Ukraine. The jobs reports are trash. It’s not going well. The only person who thinks all is well is…Joe Biden. That doesn’t account for much since he’s dementia-ridden. He’s old. He’s slow. He’s stupid. Three things the president of the United States cannot be in this world.

The incident reportedly occurred at a Walmart in Crockett, Texas, which is north of Houston. An unnamed woman was in the self-checkout line with her two children – a baby and a 1-year-old – when 49-year-old Rebecca Lanette Taylor approached and commented on her baby son’s blonde hair and blue eyes. She then asked how much she could purchase him for, claiming that she had $250,000 in her car. The mother told her no amount of money would do. “Taylor continued to bring up the topic,

The Republican Party is on the cusp of a historic victory in November, provided they don’t give into what is far too often their instinct: self-destruction. No political party ever has been so adept at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Still, Republicans have all the advantages anyone could imagine – a wildly unpopular president of the other party serving as an anchor on every Democrat up for reelection, an agenda disconnected from the needs, wants, or desires of the general public, and an economy to make Jimmy Carter’s record look desirable. All they have to do is avoid all the usual infighting

Say what you will about Donald Trump’s foreign policies. He didn’t start wars. He didn’t vaporize a family of 10 in a suburb of Kabul, He did however vaporize actual terrorists. He didn’t abandon Americans in Afghanistan in a disastrous pullout that killed 13 American soldiers. Crimea was abandoned to the predations of Putin during Barack Obama’s watch. Taiwan wasn’t buzzed by Chinese fighters on a daily basis while Trump was in the White House. Daily Chinese provocations are Joe Biden’s enduring legacy. The Ukrainian border is filled with a hostile Russian army and it’s due, in no small part, to the fool in the White House.

SAN FRANCISCO — California State University, the largest-four year university system in the country, is poised to eliminate SAT and ACT standardized tests from its undergraduate admissions process, following a trend in higher education over concerns that the exams are unfair to minority and low-income students. The Board of Trustees for the 23-campus CSU system will vote in March on recommendations to end the testing requirements, which were presented at a meeting Wednesday and met with widespread enthusiasm. (Snip) Critics have long argued that standardized tests put minority and low-income students at a disadvantage, in part because of test questions that

“Well, at least it can’t get any worse than this,” Joe Biden is thinking as he scans this Monmouth poll. Meanwhile, thousands of miles away, Vladimir Putin picks up the phone and gives the “go” order to his generals outside Ukraine… Coupla real gut punches for Democrats in this new data from Monmouth. Biden has reached the lowest job approval of his presidency in their polling to date, crossing the political Mendoza line by falling from 40 percent last month to 39 now. Republicans also lead 51/43 on the generic ballot, an all but unheard of advantage for the GOP at this stage

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said she wants Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s replacement to be someone “who will consider the impact, the effects of whatever decision-making is on people in our country so that they are not making decisions just based on” the law. (snip) “What I’m looking for is a justice who can be fair and impartial and who does not have an ideological axe to grind, which is what we saw — as far as I’m concerned — in President Trump’s nominees, including to the Supreme Court.

The truth is that the Second American Civil War is...almost over. Unlike the first one, the Democrats appear to be a near lock to win. Leftists, through a combination of brilliant projectionist strategy and callously evil use of their political opponents' naïveté, decency, and tolerance, have transformed America's institutions. They have weaponized them and used them against their less aggressive fellow citizens. In the process, they have transformed Americans, their beliefs and expectations, too. Much like the Chinese Communist Party, they own nearly all the levers of influence and power

President Joe Biden reportedly told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday to brace his country for a certain Russian invasion. Biden told Zelensky that an invasion is virtually certain and to 'prepare for impact,' CNN reported. He said Kiev could be 'sacked' by Russian forces. He reportedly said Ukraine would not be getting significantly more military help, including reiterating that no U.S. troops would be deployed there, nor would there be preemptive sanctions on Russia or any progress with NATO. The warning was not part of a White House readout provided after the call. The two world leaders conversed on the phone as the Department of Defense was issuing

An unoccupied car belonging to Democratic 'defund the police' advocate Rep. Cori Bush was struck by gunfire in St. Louis early Saturday, marking the second time her vehicle has been hit in two years. The Missouri congresswoman confirmed the news Thursday on Twitter, saying: 'I'm touched by everyone who has reached out. Thankfully no one was harmed. But any act of gun violence shakes your soul.'(Snip)Last year, she introduced a $10 billion bill that would replace police officers with social workers and other first responders in incidents of mental health and substance abuse.

The saying goes that crises reveal your true nature. If that’s the case, we are in big trouble, because what COVID has revealed about young people in America is not good. A new Morning Consult poll out this week finds that young people are the most worried about getting COVID of any age group — even though their risk from the disease is negligible. At the other end of the spectrum, the elderly are much less worried, even though they are at the highest risk of death. The poll found that 23% of those between ages 18-34 are “very worried

Where COVID is concerned, are you ready to vaccinate your two-year-old? And then vaccinate your two-year-old? And then vaccinate your two-year-old? I’m speaking of doses, to be clear. A triple approach will likely be the idea, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci at a press conference Wednesday. Amid discussion of the “development of a universal coronavirus vaccine,” he referenced a “three-dose regimen” for children under four. ABC News anchor Cheyenne Haslett inquired as follows: “For Dr. Fauci, I had a question for you, if you could talk a little bit about this next age group waiting for vaccines — kids four and younger — any updates on when we
