Today's Opinions

  • They need to think about what they are doing

    While the news cycle has been focused on “Democrats’” efforts to erode our constitutional rights, with most of the mainstream media wringing their hands over the Donkeys’ lack of success, Syria has been a potential flashpoint for conflict between the United States and Russia.

  • Reasonable gun control must be passed

        After the most recent nearly-weekly gun massacre in America, the NRA and the politicians it owns have shown once again how utterly insensitive they all are to the shameful gun violence in our land.
        But this time, House Democrats put the tone-deaf GOP leadership on notice that it will no longer sit quietly while they do nothing.

  • A free press threatened

        The Virginia Press Association sent out a response to the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s decision to ban the Washington Post from covering his campaign.

  • Russia won’t invade the Baltics

  • Countering homegrown terrorism

    It was an act of pure evil. On what should have been a quiet Sunday morning, Americans instead woke to the jarring news of a deadly terrorist attack in Orlando. As a nation, we join the Orlando community and the families of the victims in mourning those who were lost and praying for healing. Sadly, it is the latest in a string of terror attacks here in America – plots that have not been carried out by foreign terrorists but by Americans, against Americans, on American soil. It is a stark reminder that the radical beliefs of terrorist groups, like ISIS, are a threat to our freedoms.

  • Taking decisive action to protect and defend our homeland

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Don’t forget those who survived

        Last week’s D-Day anniversary ceremony included the reading of all 2,499 Americans who were killed on D-Day. It’s the first time all these names have every been publicly read out loud. We should never forget them and the cause they died for.
