GOP Freshmen Hone Their Message


Does the Republican Party have a messaging problem? Members of the House freshman class seem to think so. And in order to try and remedy the situation, seven of them met on Thursday morning in a Longworth House Office Building conference room, to discuss what they needed to be better at communicating to the American people. They also invited one member of the media to hear them message about messaging. It was all very "meta." Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., organized the meeting with Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Morgan Griffith of Virginia, Steve Southerland of Florida, Cory Gardner of ...


Congr. working to save Roanoke, Lynchburg mail proces.center


Sometime after May 15th the Roanoke and Lynchburg mail processing plants will close. In a release the postal service says the May 15th moratorium was to give Congress time to enact legislation. Back in November, 9th District Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-Salem) told WSLS he was co-sponsoring a bill, that would repeal the requirement forcing the Postal Service to pay health benefits up front for 75 years, and in turn save money and prevent closures. That bill is still in committee. So we went back to Griffith to ask him, did Congress not do enough? "Could we have encouraged them to take it ...

Independence and Southwest Virginia On July 4, we celebrate Independence Day, the anniversary of when 56 men pledged “[their] Lives, [their] Fortunes and [their] sacred Honor” by adopting the Declaration of Independence. We honor them on Independence Day, but in Southwest Virginia, their legacies can be found every day. One can simply look at a map to find them.* Two of the counties contained in the Ninth Congressional District are named after signers of the Declaration. Wythe County is named after George Wythe, who taught Thomas Jefferson law. His name appears first among Virginia’s signatures. Carroll County’s namesake, Charles Carroll of Carrollton, represented Maryland. He was the only Roman Catholic signer and the last survivor among the 56, living until 1832. The Declaration was a big step, but some had demanded independence before 1776. One of the boldest was Patrick Henry, who famously declared before the Second Virginia Convention, “Give me liberty or give me dea

A Win for Religious Freedom On June 26, the Supreme Court ruled in Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Inc. v. Comer, Director, Missouri Department of Natural Resources that religious institutions cannot be prevented from receiving funds solely because they are a religious organization.  The case originated in Missouri, where a church applied for funding from the state to replace a pea gravel playground surface with a safer material made from recycled tires.  Although the church placed high enough under the state criteria among the applicants to receive the money, the state did not grant funding because the playground belonged to a church. However, the Supreme Court said that this logic is unconstitutional, and in a 7-2 vote they ruled that religious institutions cannot be barred from funding to improve playground safety, or any other state funding provided for safety or other secular purposes.

Strengthening NATO Before attending the G20 summit with the leaders of the world’s largest economies in Hamburg, Germany, President Trump visited Poland. When he gave a speech in Warsaw, an estimated 15,000 people, many waving American flags, came to listen. This crowd reacted enthusiastically to the speech. I am not surprised that so many Poles turned out with such excitement for a visit by the President of the United States. Poland understands what it means to fight for freedom. In my lifetime, I have seen the Polish people rally to shake off the Soviet yoke and demand their inalienable rights. They have sought to govern themselves, and in pursuit of this ideal, they have often paid a steep price. Our countries enjoy a special relationship based on our shared commitment to freedom and self-government. As stated in last week’s column, Pulaski County is named for Casimir Pulaski, the Polish count who gave his life in the American Revolution. Likewise, in Warsaw there is a statu
