Call to Action - The Witch Hunt is Underway!

 

Dear Friend,

First, thank you for the tremendous support you sent in response to our last email. It is appreciated more than I can express. Thanks also to those who are praying for the President and for me and all the other leaders who are under attack.

 

In addition to people reaching into their pockets, many have reached out by email, phone, Facebook messages, texts, etc., to encourage me and my family to be strong and to stay the course.

 

I will admit to hearing from many who are not encouraging, and those opinions matter too. But at the end of the day, hearing calls for resignation from people who oppose all the principles and values that I know to be good carries little weight. One develops a thick skin going through election campaigns, the trick is to keep a soft heart through it all. 

 

The main reason I'm reaching out is to encourage you...  

... and to ask for your help.

 

There is a witch hunt underway seeking to punish any and everyone who rejects the pernicious lies that mis-characterize and condemn President Trump's dedication to our country and the patriotic motives of people who support him. The accusers are doing their best to parade out elected officials and demand they repeat after them, "Trump is evil, and he caused the insurrection on January 6th"; repeat that and denounce the truth or be dealt with severely.

 

I will under no circumstances allow myself to be coerced into saying what I know to be wrong, nor will I be bullied into silence.

Call to Action:

Please take a moment to email the Loudoun Board of Supervisors and ask them to respect free speech and vote "NO" on a formal resolution, from a Democrat-controlled Board, asking me to resign.

The Loudoun resolution is full of lies (see it here) and is being promoted with taxpayer dollars and in violation of the Code of Ethics prohibiting them from using the office to engage in political activity. It is the brainchild of Chair Randall and Supervisor Julie Briskman.

The meeting where this will be considered will be held this Tuesday, January 19th, at the Loudoun Government building.

Meeting Details: https://www.loudoun.gov/Calendar.aspx?EID=11240

Many friends, the Loudoun GOP ladies, the 10th Congressional District GOP, and the Loudoun Republican Committee are encouraging freedom-minded people to sign up to speak (in-person or online) against this resolution, which is an attack on our values and our right to free speech and peaceful assembly.

For a Rock-Solid summary of what the Left is executing, PLEASE listen to Dennis Prager here.



2021 General Assembly Session

The 2021 session of the Virginia General Assembly opened this week in Richmond. Unfortunately, the session is a ‘virtual’ one, not unlike the recently completed Special Session. Regardless, I am proud to be your voice in the House of Delegates.

Concerns that arose during the 2020 Special Session have not been addressed. Issues such as technical difficulties for both delegates and the public remain. As was the case during the 2020 Special Session, many bills are being rushed through by Democrats with little to no debate. I find this unacceptable and my staff and I continue to push for changes to provide more transparency.

My Republican colleagues and I are fighting to safely reopen our schools for as many students as possible. The science and data has been consistently clear that not only is this virus not transmitted readily in safe school environments, the negative impacts on children who are learning remotely are serious. Students in lower income communities are falling behind, and we’re seeing an epidemic of failing grades all across Virginia.

We’re also working to restore confidence in our elections. Democrats changed dozens of laws last year that opened the door for doubts about election security. The more secure and transparent our elections are, the more people will trust the results. That’s why we’re working to end policies that could allow for ballot harvesting, reinstating photo ID to vote, and prohibiting interference with poll and count watching volunteers. None of these changes will make voting more difficult, and will instead shed light on what has been an opaque process.

 

What I’m Working On - My Legislation:

  • HB 2241 Unborn child protection from dismemberment abortion; penalties. Prohibits the practice of dismemberment abortion, which is defined in the bill as meaning to, with the purpose of causing the death of an unborn child, purposely dismember a living unborn child and extract him one piece at a time from the uterus through the use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors, or any other instrument that, through the convergence of two rigid levers, slice, crush, or grasp a portion of the unborn child's body to cut or rip such portion of the unborn child's body
  • HB 2242 COVID-19 immunization; prohibition on requirement; discrimination prohibited. Prohibits the state government from requiring any person to undergo vaccination for COVID-19 and prohibits discrimination based on a person's vaccination status with respect to any COVID-19 vaccine (i) with regard to education, employment, insurance, or issuance of a driver's license or other state identification or (ii) in numerous other contexts. The bill also prohibits the inclusion of any patient immunization information in the Virginia Immunization Information System (VIIS) unless the patient has consented, in writing, to inclusion of his information in the VIIS.
  • HB 2243 Home instruction and private school tax credit. Creates an individual, nonrefundable income tax credit for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2021, but before January 1, 2026, for amounts paid by the parent or legal guardian of a child for the child's home instruction expenses or tuition for attending an accredited private school in Virginia. The credit shall equal the lesser of the amount actually paid in the taxable year for such costs or half of the average state standards of quality funding per student per year. The credit may be taken for instruction-related materials, courses, or programs used in home instruction or for private school tuition. The credit is available only to the parents and legal guardians of children who did not attend private school or were not home schooled in the previous year in Virginia. The credit is available for two years per child and can be carried forward for five taxable years.
  • HB 2244 Family life education curriculum guidelines; human reproduction; viewing of ultrasound video. Requires the instruction on human reproduction contained in the Board of Education's family life education curriculum guidelines to include the viewing of a video recording of an ultrasound of a live unborn human in the uterus.
  • HB 2245 Use of transportation funds. States that it is the policy of the Commonwealth that revenues dedicated to transportation purposes shall not be used or redirected for any non-transportation-related purpose. Any attempt to re-purpose funds dedicated to transportation as of July 1, 2020, shall be deemed invalid and shall not be effectuated.
  • HB 2246 State agencies; automatic workforce management verification software. Requires all state agencies with more than 20 full-time teleworking employees to use automatic workforce management verification software to verify the hours employees worked while teleworking by counting and reporting data to the agency.
  • HB 2251 Emergency Services and Disaster Law; Commissioner of Health; emergency orders and regulations. Provides that neither the Governor, nor the Board of Health nor the Commissioner of Health shall make any emergency order or regulation unless, on the basis of the evidence available to the Board, (i) such order or regulation is necessary to suppress a nuisance dangerous to the public health or a communicable, contagious, or infectious disease or other danger to the public life and health; (ii) no alternatives to the proposed order or regulation that are reasonable in light of the impact on quality of life and economic well-being exist; and (iii) the provisions of such order or regulation are narrowly tailored to address the nuisance dangerous to the public health or a communicable, contagious, or infectious disease or other danger to the public life and health. The bill provides that any order that limits the number of individuals who may gather together in person, in public or private, or categorizes individuals on the basis of their relationship to or association with such individuals and limits the categories of individuals may associate is presumed to negatively impact quality of life and economic well-being. The bill also limits the duration of any emergency rule, regulation, or order to 15 days; provides for one extension of such rule, regulation, or order.
  • HJ 573 COVID-19 vaccination; voluntary. Expresses the sense of the General Assembly that any vaccination for the COVID-19 virus shall be voluntary within the Commonwealth of Virginia and that it fully supports the practice of medical informed consent.
