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 ...

Jerusalem Disclaimer: This column deals with a Middle Eastern issue. It is dangerous to make any attempt to explain the Middle East in less than four volumes, but on the issue of our embassy in Jerusalem, I will attempt to nonetheless. The city of Jerusalem holds a place of special importance in the story of civilization, and on December 6, President Trump acknowledged its unique connection to the people of Israel in particular. Standing in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House on that day, he officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. As a concrete result of this action, the American embassy to Israel will soon transfer from Tel Aviv, where it is currently located, to Jerusalem. President Trump’s move grabbed headlines. I am surprised that so many consider it newsworthy, however, because the President is simply following the law. Twenty-two years ago, Congress recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Jerusalem Embassy Act was passed and signed in

Do Democrats Want a Shutdown? The American people elected Congress to do a job. The job’s requirements are no surprise, as Article I of the United States Constitution spelled them out 230 years. Among these duties, Congress is charged with the power of the purse. Deciding how to exercise that power isn’t easy, but then, an old adage tells us “Politics ain’t bean-bag.” The process of laying out goals, discussing our differences, and reaching a solution is the essence of the political process in a republic based on democratic principles. All of this brings us to the events of November 28, when House and Senate leaders were scheduled to meet with President Trump. That morning, the President tweeted: “Meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!” He pointed out areas of disagreeme

No Surprise Here – Green Climate Fund is a Boondoggle Sometimes problems catch you by surprise, and sometimes they can be anticipated well in advance. Recent setbacks for the global climate agenda fall into the latter category. Earlier this month, I alerted you that global carbon emissions continue to rise worldwide due to increased pollution from China, India, and other emerging economies. This increase occurred despite a reduction in the U.S. carbon footprint. Further, it happened two years after the Paris climate accord, which set goals to decrease the world’s carbon emissions. Time has vindicated what was evident when the accord was concluded: shackling the U.S. economy would not stop increases in carbon pollution. Instead of killing jobs in America, we would be better off finding new, cleaner ways to use our carbon assets. China, India, and other countries may talk green but will always default to get jobs and wealth for their people. In the same vein, but predating the Pa
Griffith Bill to Promote Closed-Loop Pumped Storage Hydropower Advances
The House Energy and Commerce Committee today unanimously advanced H.R. 2880, the Promoting Closed-Loop Pumped Storage Hydropower Act, introduced by Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA). The bill would streamline the licensing process the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) uses on closed-loop pumped storage projects. It would also require FERC to hold a workshop focused on potential opportunities for development of closed-loop pumped storage projects at abandoned mine sites. Congressman Griffith issued the following statement: “Closed-loop pumped storage hydropower is a boon for energy security and job creation. My bill would cut unnecessary red tape that currently accompanies approval of these projects, and I am glad the Energy and Commerce Committee advanced it today. I will continue to support closed-loop pumped storage hydropower as a way to repurpose abandoned mines, provide renewable energy, and bring jobs to Southwest Virginia.” ###
