    Fear, Silence and Inaction: Eroding Catholic Civil Rights The following is written by Hon. Robert Marshall, former member of the Virginia House of Delegates The so-called Equality ActOn October 30, 2008, Barack Obama said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”   The legal policy changes wrought under the Obama Administration paved the way for the so-called Equality Act, HR 5, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives on May 17, 2019 by a vote of 236 to 173.  The Equality Act would fundamentally and radically alter Civil Rights Law to prohibit “discrimination” on the...

    If you're paying a mortgage on a house south of Interstate10, I have some bad news for you. For that matter, if you own a business, work or play south of that line (I'm thinking hunting and fishing) the news is just as dire: President Donald Trump and your GOP congressional delegation are preparing to increase the odds that the Gulf of Mexico will drown your homes and any future your grandchildren might have in south Louisiana. That's because Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh, a regular opponent of government regulations on businesses, to fill the coming vacancy on the Supreme...

    E.W. Jackson 'declaring war' on Obama, Kaine for 'ignoring Constitution' For months, former Sen. George Allen has been the prohibitive favorite to win the Republican nomination in his quest to win back the U.S. Senate seat he lost to Jim Webb six years ago. There have been no new public polls showing a major shift in the race but GOP hopeful E.W. Jackson says voters in the commonwealth can expect a shocking result next Tuesday. Jackson says internal polling gives him confidence that he will not only challenge Allen but score the biggest upset to date in the 2012 cycle....

    RICHMOND Va. -- In a testy interview today with CNN's Brooke Baldwin on the Virginia legislature's recent refusal to appoint openly gay Richmond prosecutor Tracy Thorne-Begland to a judgeship, Del.

    The Examiner ^ | May 1, 2012 | Richard Sincere
    Three of the four candidates seeking the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Virginia agree that efforts to repeal the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – which authorizes the direct election of senators – are impractical at best. In post-debate interviews in Roanoke on Saturday, where all four candidates participated in a forum sponsored by the Republican Party of Virginia, the candidates expressed their views on the 17th Amendment in response to questions posed by the Charlottesville Libertarian Examiner. ‘Repeal Amendment’ alternative Jamie Radtke said that she does not think the repeal efforts are viable, “so I’ve been...

    The New American ^ | 20 April, 2012 | Joe Wolverton, II
    After agreeing to changes suggested by Governor Bob McDonnell, both houses of the state legislature of Virginia passed HB 1160, the bill sponsored (and shepherded) by Delegate Bob Marshall (left) that prohibits state officers and agents from participating in the unconstitutional detention of citizens of the Old Dominion. Neither the vote in the state House of Delegates nor the state Senate was even close: the House approved the measure 89-7 and the Senate followed suit later in the day voting 36-1 to make HB 1160 the law in Virginia. In an interview with The New American, Delegate Marshall described the...

    Democrats staged a pre-emptive rhetorical strike today against Republican legislation that they said seeks to outlaw abortion and might even put some forms of birth control in legal jeopardy. Del. Bob Marshall’s “personhood” bill, HB1 – the first piece of legislation introduced in the House this session – says that from the moment of conception, unborn children have “all the rights, privileges, and immunities available to other persons, citizens, and residents of this Commonwealth.” In a conference call with reporters this afternoon, Democratic lawmakers pounced on the bill. Del. Charniele Herring, D-Alexandria, called it “reckless and divisive” and “an abhorrent...

    As the General Assembly prepares to convene Wednesday, Republicans have introduced a series of bills designed to counter federal policy. The state's new Republican attorney general says he is assembling a legal team with an eye to challenging the federal government in court. And Virginia's newly elected Republican governor said he plans to engage actively in a national conversation about limiting Washington's power. "I think the federal government is out of control," said House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford). "There's genuine concern, not just from Republicans, but from people who are just concerned citizens. . . . And I believe...
