A Russian Nuclear Plant in Iran

| Posted in Blog

Terrible decisions are being made by the White House concerning Iran. I’m so tired of this ineptness. Everyone needs at least a 30,000’ view of what happening with Iran and how President Biden is handling this situation. Here’s what’s going on… (1) Iran desperately wants nuclear weapons. Despite what Iran’s sympathizers claim, nuclear weapons in the hands of the Iranian regime would…

One Missed Opportunity After Another

Did any of you watch the State of the Union earlier tonight? It was a spin job like no other. Not to beat a dead horse, but inflation is at a 40 year high under Biden's watch. His policies have enabled & encouraged more than 2 million people to illegally cross our border in the last year. Violent crime is rising. We're now $30 trillion in national debt, while he wants trillions more…

Add One More No Vote to My Growing Tally

| Posted in Blog

There was a lady sitting towards the back of the room at my town hall a couple months ago in York County. She appeared rather upset over the number of bills I’d voted against in Congress… ever since Democrats took control of the House. In fact, she seemed to know the exact number!

Despite what we were previously told by President Biden, yesterday we learned during Senate testimony that military commanders DID, in fact, advise Biden (and Trump) to keep at small contingency force in Afghanistan. They knew it would be necessary to keep the Taliban marginalized, help maintain peace in that region, and support our various intelligence operations. But wait…! Remember…

Free Flow of Sensitive and Classified Research

| Posted in Blog

A man named Anming Hu was arrested and is to face trial for wire fraud and lying to U.S. authorities. He was a scientist at the Univ. of Tennessee, participating in federally funded research on nanotechnologies. The problem, however, is that he was also privately running a similar operation over in China. He's accused of hiding this inconvenient fact from U.S. authorities. All this…
