The public school system in Virginia‘s capital says it may have more than 4,000 lesson plans, emails, and other materials about “sex work,” but if concerned parents want details, they will have to pay $20,000 to find out.
The Richmond district’s potential trove of disturbing materials was revealed when officials responded to a Daily Wire Freedom of Information Act request for all records and materials invoking the terms “sex work” or “sex worker,” including in teaching materials and communications between employees. The issue has raised concerns among parents who say library books and teaching materials increasingly normalize sex work.
“Given the broad scope of your revised request of the email search for the terms ‘sex work’ and ‘sex worker,’ our IT staff projects that upwards of 4,000 records may be retrieved in the search,” the district responded, adding that the “estimated charge that may be incurred by [Richmond Public Schools] to access, duplicate, supply, and/or search for records responsive your request, in the amount of $19,555.40,” half of which was required to begin searching.
District officials said that the hefty price was in part because it included the cost of bureaucrats deciding what information to withhold, despite matching the query.
A county supervisor in Virginia has been accused of dozens of counts of voter fraud in a case in which prosecutors allege he showed up at the homes of voters, with absentee ballot applications and ballots, to ensure he would have their vote.
According to WJHL a grand jury indicted Knox District Supervisor for Buchanan County Trey Adkins on 82 felony charges.
Those charges include 34 counts of false statement – election fraud, 11 counts of absentee voting procedure violations, 11 counts of forgery of a public record, 3 counts of conspiracy to make a false statement – election fraud, and more.
WND reported that Sherry Lynn Bailey was also indicted, who is Adkins’ aunt, and allegedly took part in the scheme too. Bailey is facing multiple counts of false statement – election fraud, conspiracy and forgery of a public record.
Adkins was under investigation by Virginia State Police for over two years. Authorities said they would have little further to release before a trial.
In a classic case of one hand not knowing what the other is doing, a Virginia doctor has been awarded a legislative commendation for his study into alternative treatments of COVID-19 just a few days before the state’s medical licensing board informed him he was under investigation for misconduct for the same work.
On Mar. 11, the Virginia House of Delegates unanimously passed HR228, a resolution to recognize Dr. Paul Marik, founder of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), for what lawmakers called “his courageous treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients.”
“Instead of playing it safe, and going along with so-called conventional wisdom, Dr. Marik dared to take a truly scientific approach by questioning and innovating in an environment where both were not only frowned upon, but for which he was persecuted,” said Virginia Republican Dave LaRock, the resolution’s primary sponsor.
Just a few days later Marik received a letter dated Mar. 15 from the Virginia Department of Health Professions informing him he had until Mar. 29 to respond to an investigation underway by the agency into his medical practices.
According to the letter, the investigation is based on a complaint from Sentara Hospitals, Norfolk, where Marik ran its intensive-care unit before it suspended him for refusing to prescribe Remdesivir and instead prescribed Ivermectin and other alternative treatments to COVID patients.
A retired priest who served for years as the director of the Catholic Church’s child protection office in Arlington, Virginia, was indicted last week on two felony counts of sexual battery and abuse of a child.
According to an indictment returned by a Fairfax County grand Dec. 20, prosecutors presented sufficient evidence to charge Terry Specht, 69, with sexually abusing a child under the age of 12 while working at the Arlington Diocese in 2000. Specht is facing a second felony charge because he had a “custodial or supervisory relationship” with the child at the time.
In 2019, amid a national reckoning about long-simmering allegations of abuse by Catholic clergy, the Diocese of Arlington released the names of 50 priests who had been “credibly accused” of sexual abuse of minors. At the time, the diocese noted that Specht, who served as the director of the Arlington Diocese’s Office of Child Protection and Safety from 2004 to 2011, had been accused of sexual assault in 2011, but that the Arlington Diocesan Review Board was “not able to come to a decision as to the credibility” of those accusations. Specht was placed on administrative leave and entered medical retirement shortly thereafter.
At the time of the alleged 2000 assault, Specht was serving as an assistant principal at Paul VI Catholic High School in Chantilly, Virginia.
The Virginia mother who made headlines for exposing what she said is pedophilia and pornography in her son’s high school library books is reportedly banned from entering the school’s library.
The mother, Stacy Langton, castigated the Fairfax County Public Schools in September for permitting what she said amounted to explicit pornographic and pedophilic materials in the school’s library, including graphic imagery and dialogue depicting sex between adult men and teenagers.
Board members, however, cut off Langton during her speech before her time expired, and she was unable to finish her remarks demanding answers and accountability for the presence of such materials. In remarks, board members ironically shamed Langton for reading passages of the books in the presence of children.
MSNBC continued to slander Virginia’s first black Lt. Governor Thursday, declaring her to be a “ventriloquist” for white supremacists.
After her victory on Tuesday, Winsome Sears called out MSNBC host Joy Reid, challenging the host to a debate and demanding a halt to the use of race baiting rhetoric without allowing recourse.
Reid has continued to attack Winsome, however, bringing on a leftist Professor who boldly proclaimed that “To have a black face speaking on behalf of a white supremacist legacy is nothing new.”
Michael Eric Dyson further described Sears as “a black mouth moving but a white idea running on the runway of the tongue of a figure who justifies and legitimates the white supremacist practices.”
Last week, the Virginia gubernatorial race was rocked by a fake racial scandal in which operatives, at least three of whom worked for the state’s official Democrat Party, carried tiki torches and pledged their support to Glenn Youngkin.
Eventually, after the identities of the activists began to be discovered, The Lincoln Project took credit. But as I said at the time, no one should buy their claim of total autonomy. Terry McAuliffe’s campaign surrogates ran with the photo immediately despite it originally only being shared by a tiny Twitter account. In other words, I highly suspect they knew ahead of time and helped coordinate the stunt.
On that note, Glenn Youngkin held a massive final rally last night. That represented his final push as people head to the polls today in an extremely tight race.
But like clockwork, the media found another likely racial hoax to run with. Someone wearing a jacket with a confederate flag stitched on it just so happened to make their way right in front of the media stand. Yes, of all the thousands of other places this person could have positioned themselves last night at the rally, they ended up right where the media could get clear pictures.
And just like with the tiki-torch scam, no reporter bothered to get any information on the person at all. Amazing, right?
The anti-Trump Lincoln Project has claimed responsibility for the Charlottesville-themed hate hoax enacted on the campaign trail in Virginia today that saw several activists dressed like alt right activists from Charlottesville pose in front of the Youngkin bus while reportedly shouting “We’re all in with Glenn!”
In a statement on its website, the anti-Trump group whose co-founder resigned after it was revealed he promised to help young men with their political careers in exchange for sexual favors, the Lincoln Project claimed full responsibility.
They enacted the hate hoax, per the statement, because Youngkin has said nice things about President Donald Trump, who in turn once declared there were “very fine people” in attendance at the Unite The Right protest held in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
President Trump was referring to protesters who did not want to see historic monuments destroyed in the name of progressive politics and behaved peacefully, however, and not those on the left and right who clashed violently that night.
“Today’s demonstration was our way of reminding Virginians what happened in Charlottesville four years ago, the Republican Party’s embrace of those values, and Glenn Youngkin’s failure to condemn it,” wrote The Lincoln Project in its statement. “We will continue to hold Glenn Youngkin accountable. If he will denounce Trump’s assertion that the Charlottesville rioters possessed ‘very fine’ qualities, we’ll withdraw the tiki torches. Until then, we’ll be back.”
The Lincoln Project failed to explain why it hired individuals who have been identified by various parties as well known, partisan Democrat activists in its statement. As National File reported earlier today, Internet sleuths identified two of the individuals believed to have been at the protest. The Virginia Democrats claim they were not involved in the protest.
When we were kids, our parents had to watch out to make sure we weren’t exposed to filth on television. Now, apparently, television has to ensure our parents aren’t exposed to the filth their kids are seeing in school.
That’s at least the situation in Virginia — ground zero for educational unpleasantness at the moment, where progressive educators are aghast that parents apparently think they have some say in what their kids are exposed to at school, no matter how objectionable or dissipated it might be.
The educators have an ally in Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate this year and a former governor of the Old Dominion. During his time as governor, McAuliffe vetoed a bill that would have allowed parents to remove sexually explicit books from Virginia schools.
During the final gubernatorial debate last month with Republican Glenn Youngkin, McAuliffe vigorously defended his policies on education.
“I’m not gonna let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions,” McAuliffe told Youngkin. “I stopped the bill that I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
Terry McAuliffe, the far-left Democrat and nominee for Governor of Virginia, is defending gay porn in schools and says that he will further lock parents out of the education process in Virginia, doubling down on his opposition to programs allowing parents to “veto” certain education materials and vowing that he will make sure parents don’t get the chance to “make their own decisions” regarding the education of their children.
Terry McAuliffe’s Soviet-style remarks on education came during this week’s gubernatorial debate, where he faced off against GOP nominee Glenn Youngkin, who made parental rights pertaining to education a key piece of his debate argument.
Youngkin drilled down on an ongoing controversy in Fairfax County, where parents are fuming over a public school allowing gay, pornographic material to be stocked in the school’s library. According to a mother who attempted to address the issue with the far-left county school board – only to be silenced – the school library carried multiple books that included illustrations depicting gay sex acts, including gay sex acts between a grown man and a fourth grade boy.
