Today's Opinions

  • The Russian albatross around his neck

        If there’s a fatal scandal brewing in the Trump regime, it’s likely to be based upon the continuing questions over his campaign’s contact with Russian government officials both during and after the election.
        The question may eventually be: Is it possible for Donald Trump to shed this nagging issue without his impeachment?

  • Brawling while the ship heads for the rocks

        And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:24.

        Recently some Republican congressmen have been faced with town hall meetings packed with shrieking liberals. The speakers have been there to oppose Republican efforts to repeal ObamaCare as well as express their disapproval of just about everything  President Donald Trump wants to do.

  • Thoughts from my recent visit with members of the German Bundestag

    By Congressman Tom Garrett

    The past election cycle thrust refugee and immigration issues into the spotlight more so than any time in recent years. A very charged and polarized political climate has left little room for compromise on either side of the aisle and I have been working extremely hard to balance international humanitarian issues with national security and the needs of the United States.

  • Judiciary Committee agenda promotes a more competitive and free America

    Earlier this year, I was honored to begin my third term as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. The Judiciary Committee is one of the most active in Congress and plays a particularly critical role in advancing pro-growth policies and protecting the individual liberties of hardworking Americans. Under my leadership in the 115th Congress, the Committee will continue to advance an agenda focused on making America more competitive and free.

     

     

  • Budget receives near unanimous support

    By Delegate Terry Austin

        During the early weeks of this year’s General Assembly session, I reported to you that both chambers were pursuing an aggressive, demanding schedule, addressing an unusually wide range of legislative issues.  And now it seems that those earlier efforts are paying off, because we have completed nearly all of our work as we enter the final week of the session.

  • Budget places emphasis on actual needs

    By Senator Steve Newman

        The 2017 General Assembly Session concluded on time and in an atmosphere of optimism.   Cooler heads prevailed during what could have become a very contentious session. The days were long with little time for anything but attending session on the floor of the Senate, committee meetings and budget conferee negotiations.

  • Bill lays groundwork for COPN reform

        Six and a half weeks can fly by pretty quickly, especially when you’re spending your days and evenings reviewing and considering nearly 3,000 bills and resolutions.
        The 2017 General Assembly session ended on Saturday.  Legislators ultimately approved around 45% of the bills filed by delegates and senators.  I am especially pleased to note that my success rate this session was well above that average.

  • What a sad and spectacular failure

        One month in, and it’s clear that we have a reckless, angry, petulant, narcissistic, ignorant, Twitter freak of a president.
        He has managed to achieve the lowest approval rating in history for the first month of a new presidency: a pathetic 38 percent. A full 56 percent disapprove.
