Deadly Iranian Drone Attack on U.S. Troops

| Posted in Blog

Over the weekend, a drone attack from Iranian-backed militants killed three American troops and injured over 30 others. This attack was at a U.S. military outpost located in Jordan near the border of Syria. Most of you may not know this, but since early October, U.S. forces in Iraq, Syria, and Jordan have been attacked ~165 times. This attack, however, is the deadliest for U.S. forces…

More Than a Tragic Anniversary

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…

Chinese Spy Base on Cuba

| Posted in Blog

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.…

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!

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…

Two Notes on Foreign Affairs

| Posted in Blog

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…

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…
