House Passes Reasonable NDAA

| Posted in Blog
Tags: Military

Good news out of the House last week, as we finally passed a reasonable version of the National Defense Authorization Act. If you consume a lot of political news, you may have seen reports about conservative amendments to that legislation, and how I, along with others from the House Freedom Caucus, were fighting hard for those changes. For a while there, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to…

NDAA Proposed Amendments

Tags: Military

This week, the House is working through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). In overly simple terms, the NDAA is annual legislation that sets the operating budget of our Defense Department and (to an extent) prescribes how those funds are to be used. It remains to be seen whether I’ll be able to vote in favor of the final version of this legislation. There are still a lot of…

Huge Win for Religious Liberty

| Posted in Blog

HUGE win for religious liberty and free speech this Friday morning at the Supreme Court. The Court held that a Christian website designer in Colorado should NOT be forced to create a website for a same-sex couple if it violates the designer's religious beliefs. In a 6-3 decision, the Court ruled that Colorado's public accommodations law violated the designer's right to free…

Supreme Court Strikes Down "Canceling" Student Loan

| Posted in Blog

Another huge blow to Biden from the Supreme Court this morning, who just struck down his unconstitutional effort to "cancel" student loans. It was a 6-3 ruling just moments ago.  If you recall, the President was trying to “cancel” up to $10,000 of debt for those who had federal student loans. Friends, debt isn’t just "canceled." Whether it’s the federal government or a private…

Supreme Court's Ruling on Affirmative Action

| Posted in Blog

Good ruling from the Supreme Court this morning on affirmative action in the college admissions process. It's important to note the Court is NOT prohibiting colleges "from considering how race has affected an applicant's life." That's reasonable.  What the Court is saying, however, is that race, by itself, cannot be the reason a college provides an advantage for admission for one…

Protect Women's Sports

| Posted in Blog

Having three daughters and eight granddaughters, I am proud to stand up in support of Women's Sports Week. Opportunities for athletes are being erased due to the mindless woke notion that biological males can fairly compete in women's sports. Thank you to Rep. Nancy Mace for holding this press conference and Riley Gaines Barker for being the voice for women in sports everywhere.

Happy Father's Day

| Posted in Blog

Fatherhood has been one of the greatest blessings I’ve ever received, behind only salvation and marriage. And it’s been the most important job I’ve ever held… by far. To every father who understands just how vital he is to his children: thank you for what you’re doing. Stay strong. Protect your kids against this growing cultural insanity. Stay true to your calling. Always remember what…

My Thoughts on ATF's Stabilizing Braces Policy

| Posted in Blog

Supporting our 2nd Amendment, I just voted in favor of an important bill in the House. This is H.J. Res 44, for those who have reached out to my office. At issue was a highly inappropriate overreach by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). Without authorization by Congress, the ATF has implemented a policy that reclassifies pistols with stabilizing-brace attachments as…
