WASHINGTON, DC – Virginia Attorney General Jason Miares (R), told Breitbart News that the Biden administration is using “food aid for needy children to promote a far-left political ideology in local school districts.”
Miyares recently they joined More than 20 Republican attorneys general are suing the US Department of Agriculture for tying the school lunch assistance program to gender ideology.
“Just to make sure everybody knows exactly what’s going on: you have the Department of Agriculture – the USDA – saying about school districts providing reduced lunches to needy children – nutrition assistance for needy children – ‘If you want this money, you have to allow biological males to play women’s sports and you have to allow biological males to use women’s bathrooms,” Miyares said.
The Old Dominion Republican seized the opportunity to go after the federal administrative state and the lack of true political representation the American people have in Washington, DC.
“One of the things you’ve seen in Washington is this explosion of the administrative state, where you have these rules and regulations that are issued that have the full force of law, but your congressman and senator, they never complain about it. ” he explained. “And your ruler might just draw the world’s attention to it.”
“It was never voted on. It is never an account. No hearings have ever been called by these governing bodies,” he continued. “The only people who can really challenge them are your state attorneys general.”
Calling it an example of “federal overreach,” Miyares, directing his comments to the Biden administration, said: “Don’t use food assistance programs, for reduced meals for needy children, as a means to say you have to allow organic men in our sports team and in our women’s sports teams and in our girls’ bathrooms.”
He said he was “proud to be joining the coalition to try to push him back”.
Miyares also called out the far-left prosecutors.
As Breitbart News reported, Loudoun County, Virginia is home to a George Soros-funded district attorney who is notorious for not prosecuting criminals and releasing criminals back into the public.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj, in an extremely rare move, was recently removed from a criminal case by a judge for “deliberately misleading the Court and the public” in an attempt to “sell” a plea deal. It also allowed a high school student who sexually assaulted a female student in the girls’ restroom to simply be assigned to another school where the man would commit another sexual assault.
Miyares has said in the past that Biberaj “cares more about criminals than about communities” and told Breitbart News that she has a “criminal first, victim last” mentality.
“The defendants already have a defense attorney, they don’t need a second one,” he said. “Your job is to serve as a prosecutor and make sure we keep the victims in mind and make sure our roads are safe.”
“When you realize that the real victims are the defendants, then you can see that we have this justice through this distorted lens,” he continued. “Social justice is that term, what they’re actually covering is perverse justice, because the one word you never hear them talk about is victims — ever. They leave them out of the equation.”
Miyares said a big part of the problem with left-wing prosecutors is that they are supported by the wealthy elite who never have to suffer the consequences of the ideology they espouse.
“The people who suffer the consequences are not those who live in gated communities and don’t face the consequences of the early release of violent offenders and the catch release program and letting people get arrested and committed,” he explained. . “And that’s why when you saw in California with the recall of the DA in California, in San Francisco — the most liberal city in the country — the only areas if you look precinct by precinct where they supported keeping him in office were the very wealthy , overwhelmingly white liberal enclaves in San Francisco.”
But the key to change in many of these areas is a change in culture. To do this, however, “culture change begins with a leadership culture change.”
Miyares spoke to Breitbart News while attending the Young America’s Foundation’s 44th National Conservative Student Conference in the nation’s capital.
