An Exhausting Week, but Well Worth It

Summer 2021 Town Halls

It's been an exhausting week, but well worth it. We just wrapped up a series of in-person town halls all over the district, and I want to thank the hundreds of people who showed up. It was great to see and hear from so many folks! Also a special thanks to Rep. William Timmons who joined me in Spartanburg, the dozens of law enforcement officers who kept us all safe, and all the venues…

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…

One-Way Ticket to a Socialistic Welfare State

| Posted in Blog

The agenda outlined by President Biden on Wednesday night is a one-way ticket to a socialistic welfare state with astronomical taxes, and government encroaching on every aspect of our lives.  His vision for our nation involves growing the size of almost every corner of the federal government. (With the exception of our military, to nobody’s surprise.) There’s simply no room to talk…

An "Undisclosed East Room Session"

| Posted in Blog

REPORT: “President Biden recently held an undisclosed East Room session with historians that included discussion of how big is too big — and how fast is too fast — to jam through once-in-a-lifetime historic changes to America.” This was the leading paragraph of a news article this morning predicting what’s to come. Naturally the question is, what other “historic changes” could they have…

Voting Against Two Amnesty Bills

| Posted in Blog

I’m heading to Washington this (Tuesday) morning to vote against two amnesty bills in the House of Representatives. These are part of Joe Biden’s immigration agenda, and would create a pathway to citizenship for five MILLION illegal immigrants. Let’s back up a second and remind ourselves that since Biden was elected, illegal border crossings have skyrocketed. Why? Because the President…

What other conclusion could there be?

| Posted in Blog

At this point, is it safe to assume liberals actually want an immigration crisis along our southern border? What other conclusion could there be? In just the last several weeks, the Biden Administration has stopped construction of the border wall, suspended the removal of most people with active deportation orders, canceled our policy requiring asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while…
