Rep. Bob Goodlatte needs to reverse his support of SOPA


Many websites are “going dark” today in order to raise awareness of Congress’s Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). With any huge bill there is good stuff and bad and the same can be said of SOPA. But the road to [tyranny] is paved with good intentions. What really has people upset and is pitting Silicon Valley against Hollywood are provisions that allow big business to shut down websites that allegedly are linking to or promoting pirated material. If a film studio believes their movie is being pirated they can have an internet company or a search engine block the site. This is a ...


Goodlatte comments on House passage of bill intended to...


... prevent abuse of eminent domain Congressman Bob Goodlatte issued a news release this week after the House of Representatives passed HR 1433, a bill that would withhold federal economic development funds for two years to any locality or state that uses eminent domain to take land for a private entity. You might recall some legal and political scuffling over this in Roanoke a couple of years ago. Interestingly, the state no longer allows this type of action — and in fact the General Assembly had already passed that bill when the motion to condemn was filed. Indeed, the motion was ...

PROTECTING THE FOURTH AMENDMENT IN THE DIGITAL AGE
A lot has changed since 1986. Mail was sent with postage stamp, a search engine was called a library, “tweets” were the sounds made by birds, and “clouds” were found only in the sky. In 1986, computer storage was finite and expensive. It was unfathomable to think that something like email would allow users to send and receive electronic communications around the globe for free, much less store vast amounts of your information.  Thirty years ago, Congress passed the Electronic Communications Privacy Act to provide a fair balance between the privacy expectations of American citizens and the legitimate needs of law enforcement agencies. But so much has changed since then. Technology has placed a great deal of information on the Internet, in our emails, and on the cloud. The vast majority of folks now communicate electronically. Just think of how many texts or emails you, or someone in your family, have sent today alone!  At the same time
ENDING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC
It’s a problem that affects Americans in all parts of the country. It doesn’t discriminate across socioeconomic lines, distinguish between urban, suburban, and rural, or limit itself to the young or old.  Today, the United States is in the throes of an epidemic of prescription opioid abuse and heroin use. The statistics are shocking. Approximately 46,000 Americans die from a drug overdose each year. Recent studies have shown that more than half of chronic prescription drug abusers received those pills from prescriptions written for them or for friends and family. Communities in Virginia are not immune. In 1999, approximately 23 people died from abuse of fentanyl, hydrocodone, methadone, and oxycodone – the leading prescription opioids abused. By 2013 that number jumped to a staggering 386 deaths, and, in 2014, the number of drug overdose deaths in Virginia surpassed the number of traffic fatalities for the first time.  This problem has rightfully gai
A VICTORY FOR THE CONSTITUTION
There was a big victory for the United States Constitution in Washington this week. In an historic decision, a federal judge ruled in favor of the separation of powers in the Constitution and the voice of the American people in the legislative process. While President Obama may have forgotten, the American people know that it is Congress who writes our laws, not the White House. However, the President has acted unconstitutionally on many occasions to rewrite our laws. Back in 2014, for the first time ever, the House of Representatives passed a resolution allowing the House to file a lawsuit against President Obama for his failure to faithfully execute the laws.  Now, as a result of this lawsuit, a federal judge ruled in favor of the People’s House that the Obama Administration unlawfully funded parts of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, by using money that was never approved by Congress for that purpose. The Constitution is clear that Congress has the powe
IRAN'S BAD BEHAVIOR STUCK ON REPEAT
Did you ever have any old records or CDs that just got stuck after a while? When it comes to the United States’ dealings with Iran, it seems like the record is stuck on repeat. Hardly a week goes by without another news story about Iran’s questionable actions on the global stage. The Iran Nuclear Agreement was a bad deal from the start, and one that I firmly opposed. Now, several months into its implementation, it’s easier than ever to see the flaws in this half-baked policy. Recently, the U.S. Department of Energy agreed to an $8.6 million dollar purchase of 32 tons of heavy water from Iran, which is an important component in nuclear reactors. It’s perplexing as to why the United States would agree to this purchase, especially when U.S. taxpayer dollars could be used to essentially subsidize Iran’s nuclear program, ballistic missile program, and other destabilizing activities in the region. Iran is required to diminish supplies of heavy water under t
