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 ...

Our Founding Fathers included in the preamble of the United States Constitution the intention of our government to provide for the common defense.  Protecting and defending our nation was not an afterthought, it was a first thought. The defense of America and our allies has always been a strategic and moral goal. While the Iran Nuclear Agreement primarily meets Iran’s goals – sanctions are lifted, nuclear research and development continues, and America’s safety is compromised – it does not pass muster for the United States.  Under this deal, in a matter of years, Iran will likely have access to nuclear weapons. I cannot in good conscience support any agreement that does not truly and transparently shut down Iran’s pathway to a bomb. That’s why I cast my vote in the House of Representatives against the Iran deal and a nuclear Iran. President Obama has said that this agreement is not based on trust, but on verification. I wish that wa
One of the first things students might read in their civics classes this fall is a document that outlines the freedoms and liberties we all hold dear. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble…” This amendment prohibits the government, including public colleges and universities, from infringing on free speech and the free exercise of religion. The Founders of our country clearly understood this to be one of our fundamental freedoms as Americans. Yet despite these constitutional protections, speech-restrictive policies on the campuses of some of our nation’s public colleges and universities remain.  Earlier this year, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) released a report detailing a list of public co
Forty years ago, President Gerald Ford signed into law a ban on most U.S. oil exports. While many may have forgotten or never even knew it existed, this ban is still in place today, acting as a barrier to expanded American energy trade and production. After four decades, it’s time to repeal this outdated ban. The United States is home to a wealth of natural resources, including oil. Technological advances in recent years have further enhanced our ability to produce oil domestically. In fact, the United States recently surpassed Russia to become the world leader in the production of oil and natural gas. Yet, as it stands, much of that crude oil is unable to be exported into the global market. There are significant economic benefits associated with lifting the outdated ban. Just last year, a U.S. Government Accountability Office report found that lifting the oil export ban could reduce consumer fuel prices and lead to increases in employment. The report also states that &ld
New life – there is nothing more precious. In the past months, as a series of undercover videos have shed light on Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices, it is even clearer that life is a gift that must be fiercely protected.  These videos contain discussions with representatives of Planned Parenthood regarding the exchange of money for the body parts of unborn children to be used in research. The videos are difficult to watch, and it is even more difficult to hear the callousness with which Planned Parenthood representatives speak about the harvesting of fetal body parts and tissue.  Earlier this month, the House Judiciary Committee held the first hearing as part of our ongoing investigation into the atrocities allegedly committed by Planned Parenthood.  This hearing was the first opportunity for Members of Congress and the American people to hear from legal experts and abortion survivors alike on the horrors of these alleged practices.  As invest
