Legislation aimed at increasing diversity at the governor's schools in Virginia has failed, with a Senate committee voting to table it indefinitely. It called for modifying the current test based admissions system at the schools with a goal of increasing access for historically underserved groups, including black and Latino students. It's similar to what's happening in Fairfax County, where the county is being sued for overhauling the admissions process at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, Some opponents of the change say would lower educational standards.

I want to start off with a letter to the editor of the connection. Which is a local publication. They talk about vandalism of Trump's signs. And I think that this is just a universal problem all across the country. People have trump flags. You see people you know, taking the flag's down, stealing them off flagpoles and, you know, burning them or just running away with them, and you see the sign stolen or vandalized in some way. And the person who wrote this letter, Nicholas callous as this, you know, is there any way that we can correct this? This I guess of atmosphere off the left being able to do whatever they want and shut down any speech that they want to shut down and the right just sits there and has to take it. And that is the tip of the iceberg. Right there. In the letter that Mike wrote, was specific to do an incident up in his area and drain bill. It's happening all over. We've had signed set on fire in people's front yard. We set him stolen from precinct on head cars vandalised for having trump sticker on It is something that is this ridiculous. We've got to find a way to stand up to be visible to the vocal and to get our points out there. And you're exactly right. They're trying to shut down speech. They're trying to make sure that were intimidated and don't come out and express our opinions or get out voter or do anything that fights back against the gender that they're pushing. Honest. Yeah. Meanwhile, there's like no analog for this on the right. You don't see conservatives destroyed by them signs all the vital signs in my neighborhood are in pristine condition. They're sitting there sitting out there perfectly. Let me ask you a Steve about Fairfax County. And what what this implies for the election in a nobody expects Northern Virginia to break for Donald Trump. But what is your sense about Republican voters standing in those early voting lines Right now? I've noticed. A lot of those lines were very long in Fairfax County. They're continuing to stay long. I was a little surprised. I went out on day one to the government center where we were doing early voting and the lines were tremendous. Andi. I thought that over time they would die down. And I said that Well, you know the satellite's open and that'll take the pressure also just for curiosity on 14th when satellites open and went back by the government center lines wrong, people are out and numbers right now about 25% of the county. Has either requested an absentee ballot has already voted early and in person, and you know if you do the math, unexpected turnout that's about 40% of Fairfax County has already voted, so we need To really get out there. Now We need stay excited. We need to be out there for President Trump, and we need to do what it takes A whole voters in that normally would not vote or normally would not vote Conservative ticket. We are excited right now We have a message. We have a plan and we have a leader that will take us the right way through the future. And people are buying into that Now it is true. I mean, truth will eventually overtake the lives that they're telling us. And we'll be successful. We just need to keep at it. We need to not be discouraged. We need to not tire out and we need to get out and vote Ryan and we're seeing it Now. People are excited independents. They're following our way. Some of the people I've talked to campaigns are following 2 to 1 for the conservative side of the ticket s O. Those independents fall to the oneto us. We're going to do Very well in Northern Virginia. And and again I talked to people a lot. We don't need to win Fairfax County for President Trump to win the state. We need to come out on boat and do the best we can and get up to 35 40 45% for President Trump. It's fine. We take the state we get the electoral votes, and that's what counts and actually clarify you're totally right. It's not about just winning a region it's all state wide for a presidential election. So every trump supporters in Fairfax County That'll help the president potentially get over the top. Mariana, You have a question? Yeah. I just wanted to ask what some of the questions on the ballot there's. There's several of them on the on the ballot that I'm looking at, and people have to read them. And I think a lot of people don't really read the summary doesn't always give you everything you need to know about it. Is there any question in particular that you think people need to pay special attention to? We don't have time to go through all of them. Oh, I agree. Totally Amendment One is the most important question on the ballot right now, usually years ago, and for a long time when the Democrats were in the minority. They wanted a bipartisan panel. Teo do Redistricting happens every 10 years. This happens to be the since this year. We happening early in the 2021 to redraw all of the lines in the state for Congressional districts for state and the state, Senate and House delicate district. All of that will be happening next year, so they were for it until they were against it. When they were in the minority. They wanted something bipartisan player now that they're in the majority. They don't want that anymore. So it meant that our question One Amendment want is a yes vote. We need fairness in our elections. We need to take some of this craziness out of it. We need a bipartisan commission is going to go in there, Draw the lines fairly and take places like Northern Virginia make them competitive again. I mean, it's ridiculous that we cannot run a conservative candidate in certain parts of the county and haven't changed at all. Because of the way the lines are drawn, and you'll get some of these district that looked like a snake. I mean, the old thing about gerrymandering is definitely alive and well in northern Virginia. Yeah, I think it is in a lot of states and that is a big problem. Steve, not Fairfax GOP Chairman..

S. history going back to the that the crash of nineteen twenty nine is about thirty eight percent so we're not even at the average yet okay all right so we've certainly seen that before and I will say most bear markets have tended to play out over a longer period of time so for example the dot com crash started in March of two thousand and then of course in the middle of that bear market you had nine eleven that was a long downturn at downturn lasted almost thirty one months with a total percentage change of minus fifty percent financial crisis wasn't quite as long was only about seventeen months it felt like longer at the time that was almost a fifty six percent drop and of course the even the the nineteen twenty nine stock crash that bear market that really only lasted about thirty two months but it was down eighty six percent so it again anybody who's telling you this is the worst we've ever seen that died at the there's that but nothing like this yes some of things going on society is somewhat unprecedented but again the market reaction is not all that is is not all that rare if you will going back to time that is not all that rare is that volatility clusters okay one thing that we know about bear markets if they don't very rarely to bear markets due to the market goes straight down what you tend to see is a big pickup in market volatility because the market doesn't know what to do I remember the fall of two thousand eight I mean one day people were thinking Hey listen if that you know the fed's gonna come and bail us out the next day people were thinking all of Wall Street was gonna get wiped out and vacillated that quickly just like within the last couple weeks and what happens is the best days are often mixed in with the selloffs so just to give you couple statistics the fifty best days for the S. and P. five hundred from January first nineteen ninety five through March fifteenth of two thousand twenty most of those came in bear markets the two best days were October thirteenth and October twenty eighth two thousand eight eleven point six up and ten point eight percent up in fact out of the top twelve under setting up here one two three five seven of the two of the best twelve days since nineteen ninety five came in the fall I late and and winter of two thousand eight the market without forty percent that's left here so you had a terrible year one of the worst ever recorder but seven or eight great up days so this volatility cluster that we're seeing this in a frenetic markets where it looks like you know everything everything is just completely come on hinged disconcerting yes but unprecedented now a few other things that are you know again he hoped disconcerting and and make us all nervous but have also been seen before one is a fifty two week lows as extreme as they are today right now depending on the day roughly seventy to eighty percent of stocks on the S. and P. five hundred are at or near their fifty two week lows the fall of two thousand eight it got to ninety ninety percent of stocks so that's why of course when you know I'm part of that is attributable to the rise of index investing right when someone hit the sell button on a billion dollar S. and P. five hundred you know program your futures contract or something like that all five hundred stocks in the S. and P. gets old okay and and also these big down days you haven't seen distinction between high quality low quality value or growth it's everything gets sold we've seen that before nothing that we've seen is of course when you have a period of economic stress like you like you saying right now we all know that America is kind of shutting down right that tends to put stress in the credit markets as well right now the the spread between high yield what high yield bonds are yielding an investment grade bonds are yielding is about roughly three percent at the at peak fear in early two thousand nine it got to almost seven percent so yes forcing credit stressed for sure but we've seen twice as much credit stress just in the last twelve or thirteen years and by the way I'm Tony this this could easily get worse before it gets better so maybe we do get to six or seven percent at some point particularly in certain sectors I mean energy hospitality you know cruise lines airlines we know that those bonds are going to be under extreme duress at least over the next two or three quarters make maybe significantly longer depending on what happens with no government assistance and what have you so I think you get the point folks what's going on in society not to repeat myself but what's going on society is somewhat unprecedented but the way that the markets react to that and investors react to that we've seen it before doesn't mean that we necessarily know what to do on a daily basis doesn't mean that we're fully prepared for because you never know the extent of it right until you look back on in retrospect I don't know thirty five percent loss is going to become a fifty five percent loss and quite frankly with the way things are going we can go from thirty five percent to fifty five percent in a couple days okay yeah this this thing doesn't look like it's gonna play out over eighteen months but but again the way that the markets have responded is not something that's it's rare but not all that unusual I think the big point I wanted to make an end this sort of number two of the things that I do now is let that I don't know but that of the things that I don't know this is somewhat obvious picking up which we tend to forget it when we're going through it in real time one hundred percent of bear markets have recovered and one hundred percent of their markets have eventually will eventually lead to new all time highs so before I get into some data and in just a couple general points this is why it's so important to stay in the game can you six stays solvent and what I mean by that is that we've mentioned this in a couple client emails so much of the selling right now is not the voluntary selling its forced selling its hedge funds that were leverage to the gills I read the other day about a huge multi billion dollar long short trading program okay they were long stocks betting on stocks going up and short stocks betting on stocks going down well they were so leveraged they were they were simultaneously liquid in long and short positions so they were responsible supposedly again I read this after the fact but supposedly they were they were responsible for some of these big you know two hundred three hundred point swings in both directions within like ten fifteen twenty minutes because they were liquidating positions on both sides they had to you were you had a lot of investors who because the markets have done well the last few years we're margin drop in their portfolios when you get margin calls you have to sell what you don't want to sell when you don't want to sell it and often you have to sell your most liquid securities treasuries gold blue.

"Fairfax County Board of supervisors for its approval if adopted the ordinance would prohibit all Fairfax agencies and employees from for meeting or assisting ice with civil immigration enforcement unless expressly required by law in other words it would make Fairfax county exactly what we're seeing in Montgomery County right now and they've been debating if they've been discussing it and this group Fairfax for all well they've got they've got a whole lot of money behind them they've got a whole lot of interest in Fairfax county. they go to all the meetings you got all the meetings. they say things like other this is a quote from Lanny Singerman Fairfax county resident who got her information according to this article from Fairfax for all coalition it says when localities decrease their cooperation with ice on undocumented people are more likely to cooperate with police to report crime and crime actually goes down there you go when when governor local government stopped cooperating with ice crime goes down this is what these people are selling. how many sexual assault of we've been reporting my grammar county at the hands of illegal aliens. how is crime decrease demagoguery county. and and and because you're you're trying to make it safe for think think about the logic behind this we want to make it safe for illegal aliens to report the crimes that are being committed on them. so we won't deport anyone. we will cooperate with ice even if somebody is arrested for for rape we won't cooperate with vice unless price goes and gets some sort of bench warmer. so by not deporting the MS thirteen gang members and cooperating with ice. to deport the MS thirteen gang members they want to make it a safe place so that the victims of MS thirteen gang members have a safe environment to report the crimes perpetrated by the people that should have been deported. so let's not deport the violent criminals. let's let them stay here so the people they assault and rape and murder can report the crimes I guess the one to get murdered can't report the crimes it'll be their family members who theoretically are also in the country illegally so their priority is to make sure that the victims of crime have a safe place to report the crimes rather than actually create an environment where maybe those crimes didn't take place at all and by the way they still have failed one test of mine that I continue to repeat not do it now show me well one person not the ten people not the hundred people not the thousand people show me vote one person who was deported. because they reported a crime that they were the victim of. show me that person where is that person. you know the sad irony. is it illegal alien in this country is actually the victim of a horrendous violent crime that actually may give them a chance. to stay here and become a legal resident. it's the opposite of what they're telling you. but they still won't come where is the one person the one person. who is been deported because they reported they were a victim of a crime. now what happens is these groups. like casa de Maryland or Fairfax for all our whoever people without borders they'll go into these communities and say well you better keep your mouth shut you can't report crimes because they'll deport you MS thirteen or other violent criminals who are in the country illegally when they perpetrate violence and terror on these people they will threaten them and they say you better keep your mouth shut who you gonna call the police because if you call the police they'll deport you. they're being lied to there being bullied they're being intimidated it's not the truth if these groups like casa de Maryland or Fairfax for all or people without borders if they spend ten percent of their time actually telling the people in these communities the truth saying if you are the victim of a crime of any kind of crime a year in this country illegally that doesn't matter you need to tell the police the police are your friend. you have nothing to fear from the police unless in fact you are a criminal if you are a criminal you do have something to fear from the police because guess what they're going to catch you they're going to prosecute you and I gonna hand you over ice that should be the message in these communities. but the one who claim they're speaking for the undocumented Americans people like Fairfax for all and casa de Maryland and people without borders the people who claim they're trying to protect those communities they actually are lying to them they're perpetuating lies there perpetuating rumors they're perpetuating fear and they're helping the violent criminals..

"We're now joined by Fairfax own supervisor Pat parody as we love covering things in it Fairfax county because they give us so much to talk about. And now, here's the latest with regard to illegal immigrants in Fairfax county, supervisor heritage I sometimes wonder what your colleagues are thinking over there. What's the latest? Yeah. I wonder what they're thinking to this one came out of the blue Larry. Well, they're they're talking about setting up a legal defense fund for deportation hearing hearings, which is of course, a civil action. We don't we don't pay for civil defence for any of our tax paying hardworking residents. Just it it blows my mind. We obviously we have a public defenders for people who are facing criminal charges and can't afford an attorney, and and do public defenders represents not just non citizens, but citizens who are in the country legally here, an illegal immigrant, and you're caught stealing a car. You'll get a public defender, right? Certainly for criminal offenses. Yes. You will everybody gets a everybody gets defensive criminal proceedings, but these are civil proceedings and they're facing deportation. And generally speaking, my understanding is over ninety percent of undocumented immigrants legal aliens who are in this country that are facing deportation right now, these are people who have committed some other crime as well. That's correct. Typically, we don't we don't do 'immigration enforcement turf X county, but we certainly want to get the bad guys off the streets. And when they commit crimes, we we should we should arrest them and then through deportation of now, the tax dollars of law abiding citizens of Fairfax county are now going to be redirected to pay for attorneys. To help defend people who are facing deportation. Well, how much money are we talking about here? Well for starters, it's two hundred million dollars in carryover funds. But who knows what the plan is for for for next year? And and you and you said it right at this competes with all the other needs that we have in Fairfax county, we've already increased taxpayers the taxes on our homeowner's twenty five percent in the last five years. But it competes with parks it competes with library's public safety. You know, we've got some police pay issues we need to address. Why we're spending two hundred million when we when we don't provide us for our for our two hundred thousand I'm sorry when we don't we don't provide this for our residents. Oh that that's important as we're talking two hundred thousand dollars nine hundred million dollars. I'm sorry two hundred thousand but still I mean, that's two hundred thousand dollars that you could be spending that can last time. I checked your county wasn't flush with tax write era with tax revenue. You have to make tough choices on how you spend money. Two hundred thousand dollars could go a long way. That's correct. It can solve a lot of problems if it's used correctly. All right. And so what's it looking like, what's the public comment process on this provides a heretic and people come in and be a part of this conversation. What we've got one day we're in the middle of of budget public hearings right now, they will they'll run until about six o'clock tonight. But people can sign up the come in tomorrow few sign up for budget public hearings tomorrow, you'll probably be on starting at about five o'clock in. That's on the Fairfax county website board of supervisors budget public hearings and folks can sign up and come tell the tell the board what they think about this. I I don't know how the vote is going to go on this. I know the budget chairman supervisor McCain supervisor faster certainly in front of this initiative, and we'll see where the rest of the board goes. And by the way, we've seen some of the things they flirted with the idea of creating a Fairfax as a sanctuary county. We saw them questioning in working with the the sheriff to to try to, you know, stop cooperating with ice, and it all seems to stem from these county supervisors in my opinion, put words in your mouth really just trying to find any way to get headlines to pick a fight with Donald Trump. And and help them is that. Is that is that how the debates been going is that how the conversations have been going is this really all about President Trump and not about the people of Fairfax county. I think it's a little bit about that. I think it's a little bit about we've got some people in primaries here in Fairfax county, the democratic primary than we've got people running this far as far left as they can get in his liberal as they can get to to get the primary voters. There you go. All right. So it's real real scary. They want they do want to turn into a sanctuary county. Yeah. They sure do. You're one of the voices. They're pushing back against that. And we appreciate it. And you always have a voice here supervisor pack parody. There you go Fairfax county ball's in your court. They wanna use your tax dollars to create a legal defense fund. To provide illegal alien something that Fairfax county citizens. Don't get. Legal defense for a civil action deportation. That's your tax dollars..

"Channel and i'll tell you why it thank you for your call ma'am i i'm sorry by way of breaking news here and the reason is i keep watching as had been telling this county called fairfax county and a republican gillespie but any republican would have to build up significant numbers in other parts of the state to counter this fairfax county and they're only certain pockets where you can do that the rural areas the populations aren't large enough and this is how they get screwed by the way but the current vote from fairfax county is twenty seven percent of the precincts reporting and the democrat north them has a twenty six twenty seven thousand vote lead in that county so that make makes it very very difficult so now all the news organizations are calling it for a north them at this point he has fifty one point four percent of the vote the less is forty seven point four percent of the vote so gillespie is four points behind and a great deal of fairfax county hasn't even come in yet now that'll be offset to some extent by these rural towns and counties but not enough so northern to vent northern virginia the rest of the state is mostly republican other than a few pockets northern virginia elects i'm afraid the governor's in senators in this state and they've elected another democrat it's as simple as that and i will tell you as a conservative to less be ran about as good of the campaign as you can run he really did and ralph north them the democrat ran about as bad of a campaign she could run he flipflop on key issues uh he was involved in the horrific added really nasty add he cut out the lieutenant governor candidate on the democrat side from from some campaign literature he is an african american but it doesn't seem to matter doesn't seem to matter so the turnout of northern virginia was fairly significant and as northern virginia goes it seems in many cases so goes the rest of.
