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… Read more »
News broke this morning that China has struck a deal with Cuba to build a spy base on the island, less than 100 miles from the Florida coast. This will enable communist China to eavesdrop on U.S. communications more easily, especially around the southeast. It’ll also give China closer access to monitor our shipping and military traffic.
It’s no wonder China has become so emboldened.… Read more »
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! Read more »
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… Read more »
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… Read more »
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… Read more »
On the foreign affairs front, I’m following two separate events today. In no particular order…
First, over the weekend, the U.S. eliminated a prominent al Qaeda terrorist known as Ayman al-Zawahiri. Actually, “minced” is a more accurate verb here – just do a search for “Hellfire R9X Ninja Missile” if you’re intrigued by those kinds of details. It’s impossible not to be impressed by our… Read more »
“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… Read more »
2,501 American soldiers gave their lives along the beachheads of Normandy on June 6, 1944. Thousands more were injured.
D-Day was a monumental effort to help defeat Nazi Germany and end WWII. 78 years later, we still honor and remember their incredible sacrifice.

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… Read more »
