Candid Candidate Spotlight: Omari Faulkner (R) VA, U.S. Senate Race

RFSO spotlights the latest entry into the Virginia U.S. Senate Race for 2020.

Omari Faulkner, 37, is a former Georgetown University Men’s Basketball player who attended on a full athletic scholarship. He has served as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Reserves and former U.S. diplomat and is running on a Republican ticket. He met his wife while both working for the U.S. State Department stationed in India and are the parents to four young daughters.

Faulkner has his roots in Christianity, a strong work ethic and service. He gave an enlightening interview to The Daily Wire where he outlines his platform on core issues on Gun Control/Second Amendment, Immigration, Economy, Homeland and National Security, Wasteful Government Spending, and Defending our Liberties. See the details here.

Omari’s Views:

Economy: President Trump is doing incredible work on job creation. Minority employment is at an all-time low. More women are joining the labor force. Unfortunately, the Democratic Party is more focused on expanding government to keep people in poverty.

Homeland and National Security: Keeping our home front secure must always be a top priority.

Immigration: For so long our country has been a beacon of hope to the rest of the world. Immigrants have always been an important pillar in our country and we should welcome them. That said, our immigration system is broken and needs to be fixed. That starts with finishing the wall across our southern border, securing ports of entry, and closing immigration loopholes.

Wasteful Government Spending: As long as our government continues to expand in size, we will continue to see wasteful spending across the board, and it needs to stop.

Defending Our Liberties: The far-left, led by the cast of characters running for the Democratic presidential nomination and limelight-seeking members of Congress, have taken the quest to infringe upon our rights of free speech, freedom of conscience, and right to bear arms to a new, dangerous level.

Gun control: Omari’s take on the Democrats’ current push to impose gun control on Virginians. He responded:

I am a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment. Growing up in poor areas of Memphis, TN, I witnessed first-hand loved ones be victim to gun violence. It is not law-abiding citizens who are committing these crimes – it’s criminals. Virginia Democrats are wrong in their attempts to criminalize Virginians’ 2nd Amendment rights. We need to talk about mental health and other ways to prevent gun violence, but taking away Constitutional rights is not the answer.

Omari’s Resume:

  • Man-Tech International-Strategist
  • Commissioner Loudoun County Va. Economic Development
  • Virginia Governors Advisory Board on service and volunteerism
  • O Street International/Non-Profit Co-Founder and President
  • Public Affairs Officer U.S. Naval Reserves
  • CASA Special Advocate, Montgomery, Maryland
  • Adjunct Professor Georgetown University
  • Financial Management Officer U.S. State Department
  • PepsiCo-Sales Manager
  • U.S. Cultural Envoy

Faulkner has four declared opponents in the GOP Primary at present and the victor will run in the General against Democratic Senator Mark Warren who has had the seat since 2009. Warner currently is in the powerful seat of Vice-Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

RFSO notes that the Virginia GOP Party is at war with one another, has not been successful at the ballot box where it counts for a decade, and failed to even have a candidate to choose in 2018 in half of the Virginia races.

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living abroad in Europe as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.
