    Profits over
    protection

        “Abortion clinics in Virginia are ‘beautiful, immaculate, clean facilities” declared NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Executive Director Tarina Keene in a January 17, 2013, interview, with HuffPost Live. 
        Perhaps Ms. Keene was being led through the facilities blindfolded; how else could she ignore the unsanitary conditions, the blood splattered doorways, bloody surgical scrubs, untrained assistants or unlicensed abortionists?  

  • A renewed opportunity to forge a brighter future

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    It is a great honor to represent Fifth District Virginians in Congress, and I am grateful for and humbled by the opportunity to continue serving you for the next two years. Tuesday’s election significantly changed the dynamics in Washington, and with that change comes renewed opportunities to advance policies that will address the most pressing issues facing our country.

     

  • Remembering those who have served

    President Calvin Coolidge once said, “The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” While these words were spoken long ago, they are still words that we must abide by today. We cannot forget our defenders of freedom who have sacrificed so much for this great nation. As Americans, we must remember the men and women who have answered the call to serve both in times of war and peace. Our veterans have stood guard on distant battlefields and here at home to protect the liberties at the core of the United States.

  • GOP: Be careful what you want


    The national Republican Party flexed some real muscle on Election Day and got what it wanted, flipping control of the U.S. Senate and increasing its House majority as well.
        Democrats knew they had a tough assignment, defending Senate seats in many states that traditionally vote Republican, including the South, where rural conservatism produces, in knee-jerk fashion, reliable Republican votes.

  • Hope and change

        The first thing that came to my mind when I learned that American voters delivered control of the Senate into Republican hands was “hope and change.” 

  • Our veterans

    They are our neighbors, our teachers, our friends.
        They volunteer at the local food bank, coach our child’s sports team, sit beside us on Sunday morning at church.
        Some are quite elderly; some still very young.
        They are this nation’s veterans and they’ve served this nation with honor, with valor, with courage.
