More Than a Tragic Anniversary

| Posted in Blog
World Trade Center Memorial

It doesn't seem like 22 years ago. In many ways, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, still seem like yesterday, when almost 3,000 people were murdered by terrorists on American soil. The numbers 9-11 represent so much more than a tragic anniversary. It's a daily reminder of how blessed we are to live in this nation. However, that blessing is a target for evil, and we must never…

We Need a Balanced Budget

| Posted in Blog

Most of you know this, but the federal government is only funded through September 30th. Prior to that date, Congress is supposed to pass legislation that funds the various federal agencies beyond September 30th. That process is shaping up to be a complete disaster, which is not surprising. We have too many entrenched Members of Congress who don’t care about our outrageous spending. This…

Remarks at CPAC

| Posted in Blog

It was an honor be part of a special forum this morning at CPAC with Rep. Scott Perry, where we covered a wide variety of important issues facing Congress. The weaponization of government, border security, the Speaker's election, China, and more... nothing was off limits. Give a listen!

More Objects Taken Down

| Posted in Blog

The bottom line is we still know VERY LITTLE about these spy balloons. Right now, it’s easier to discuss what we ~don’t~ know rather than what we do. Not helping matters is President Biden, who has been out to lunch concerning these intrusions. Why is this important? I can’t recall a time in history when our military has shot down a foreign object over the continental United States. In…

Tonight's State of the Union Address

| Posted in Blog

I’m not expecting much from the State of the Union address tonight. We’ll hear a lot of platitudes and cherry-picked statistics, but nothing meaningful in terms of policy or vision. If you’re inclined to tune in to President Biden’s remarks tonight, I’d invite you to keep these facts in the back of your mind: ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: 4.5 million people have illegally crossed our southern…

Alarming Chinese Surveillance

| Posted in Blog

News about this Chinese surveillance balloon currently hovering over the continental United States is yet ANOTHER alarming development from the communist regime. China is claiming it's a benign balloon intended for scientific research, which just happened to float over into our airspace. The problem is that very little that government claims can be trusted. And the time for China to…

Commitment to America

| Posted in Blog

I get a lot of questions about what Republicans will do next year when we take back control of the House of Representatives. These are important questions. After all, we can talk forever about spiraling inflation, record illegal immigration, rising violent crime, foreign policy disasters, fentanyl crisis, “woke” education programs, out of control government bureaucracies, etc. But it’s…

What’s Your Solution, Ralph?

| Posted in Blog

“What’s your solution, Ralph?” I get that question all the time, especially when I talk about wasteful spending in Congress and our $30 trillion in federal debt. Friends, our nation is heading for financial ruin. I’m so tired of being asked to vote “yes” on new spending bills with no offsets. I’m tired of bloated, wasteful government. I’m tired of agency heads who claim they can't do…

"Safeguard the American People, Our Homeland, and Our Values"

| Posted in Blog

The TSA at airports is part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The sole mission of DHS is to “safeguard the American people, our homeland, and our values.”   That's it. That's their job.   So why would DHS implement policy changes that permit LESS invasive screening procedures for transgender-passengers? Are they any less of a threat than…

REPLAY: Joint Tele-Town Hall w/ Rep. Jeff Duncan and Rep. William Timmons

| Posted in Blog

A very special thanks to Congressman Jeff Duncan and Rep. William Timmons! The three of us hosted an incredible joint tele-town hall on April 5th, with tens of thousands of constituents joining us on the phone from back home in South Carolina. There were many great questions about inflation, illegal immigration, Ukraine, and other issues facing our country. You can catch a full replay…
