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 ...

AN ADMINISTRATION MADE DISASTER AT THE BORDER
There is a tsunami hitting our nation’s southern border.  It’s been splashed all over the news – images of hundreds of teenagers and children cramped in holding centers in South Texas. They’re arriving in unprecedented numbers, making the dangerous journey from Central America through Mexico and then walking miles across a hostile border environment, assisted by smugglers, to enter the United States in violation of the law.  According to Deputy Border Patrol Chief, Ronald Vitiello, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expects to apprehend more than 90,000 unaccompanied minors on the border just this year. It’s not just young people who are arriving – adults bringing along minors are also coming.  As of mid-June, DHS had seen more than 50,000 minors and 40,000 family members attempting to cross into the U.S. since October, and there are no signs of it stopping. According to a Rio Grande Valley Sector Intelligence Report fro
STEPS TO STOP THE BORDER CRISIS
Over the last several weeks, the surge of children, teenagers, and families – largely from Central America – attempting to enter the United States illegally has continued to grow.  On July 2nd and 3rd, I led a bipartisan group of Members of Congress to the Rio Grande Valley Sector of the U.S.-Mexico border to survey the situation firsthand.  After meeting with officials, touring several federal facilities, and patrolling with Border Patrol agents along the Rio Grande River, it was clear that the Obama Administration has allowed a serious national security and humanitarian crisis to develop on our border.   The failure of this Administration to enforce our immigration laws has lead to a disaster of President Obama’s own making. Now, he has asked Congress for a whopping $3.7 billion in additional funding without accountability or a plan in place to actually stop the border crisis. No amount of resources will be effective in stemming the surge of ille
PROTECTING THE BALANCE OF POWERS
“What we are witnessing today is one of the greatest challenges to our constitutional system in the history of this country.” Jonathan Turley, law professor and supporter of President Obama, made this statement in his testimony before the House Rules Committee just a few days ago on the continued abuse of power by the Obama Administration.  Over the past several years, we have seen the Obama Administration repeatedly circumvent Congress and ignore the law.  This has happened in many policy areas, including energy, immigration, and health care.  The President has been unapologetic in announcing that he would use his pen and his phone to act where Congress would not, instead of seeking legislation from America’s elected representatives.    The White House’s continued actions are in direct conflict with the carefully crafted balance of powers found in the United States Constitution, and the House of Representatives is preparing to t
SAYING 'YES' TO ENERGY AND JOBS
We all remember those family road trips. There were long hours in the car on the way to the beach or a theme park, but they are memories that you will never forget.  As families prepare to pack up the car and head out of town this summer, many folks are probably thinking about gas prices and how rising energy prices make it a little harder to hit the road each year.  If Congress wants to focus on solutions to the struggles families face, part of it is ensuring access to affordable energy. We have so many resources available to us in the United States and in North America.  If we’re going to invest in energy sources outside of the U.S., it should be through approving the Keystone XL pipeline that will give us access to oil from Canada.  However, many energy projects remained stalled by bureaucratic red tape in Washington.  As part of the energy solution, the House of Representatives recently passed three bills that would help America realize its fu
