Here’s a quick summary of the legislation I’m supporting in Congress concerning Russia. In no particular order:
First, I'm co-sponsoring a bill that would formally suspend normal trade relations with Russia and Belarus, which is a puppet-state of Russia. This is a no-brainer. Russia should not be allowed to function economically as though they aren’t waging an unjust war.
Second,… Read more »
It took entirely too long, but the President FINALLY decided to sanction Russian oil earlier today. Unfortunately, he’s still dragging his feet on unleashing America’s own energy production capabilities. It’s just feckless leadership from top to bottom.
Let’s talk about the oil sanctions first. Most Democrats and Republicans in Congress have been yelling at Biden to get in gear and ban… Read more »
You’d be hard pressed to find this level of bipartisanship on any other issue right now. The United States needs to sanction Russian oil. Almost everyone is united on this point. Heck, even Nancy Pelosi is on board now.
But President Biden has staunchly resisted this step so far. (This may be changing. More on that below.)
Here’s the issue: a sizeable portion of the Russian economy is… Read more »
This ought to be proof positive that Vladimir Putin has devolved into a sadistic, unhinged lunatic. Reports this hour indicate his Russian army is literally shelling the largest nuclear power plant in all of Europe, which is located in southeast Ukraine. As of 9 PM tonight, it’s unclear how dangerous this situation is.
It is truly unconscionable that President Biden has not yet… Read more »
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… Read more »
There’s no question Vladimir Putin completely underestimated two things: (1) the resolve and determination of Ukraine & her people, and (2) the worldwide response from other nations to his tyrannical invasion.
Regardless of what ultimately happens in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has permanently sealed his reputation as a tyrant dictator. His country will – and should – be crippled… Read more »
Everyone needs to understand that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is more than just a regional crisis. Instead, this is a major worldwide problem.
We’ve got a tyrannical dictator who appears to have no qualms invading a neighboring country, and nobody knows how far he’s willing to go. Meanwhile, other potentially hostile nations are watching this closely, trying to figure out what they… Read more »
Late Wednesday night, Rep. Ralph Norman (SC-5) issued the following statement on Vladimir Putin and Russia's war on Ukraine:
"War has begun in Ukraine. Despite his lies, his revisionist history, and his psychopathic behavior, the entire world recognizes that Vladimir Putin is solely responsible for this. There can be no doubt that Russia is the aggressor in this war, and the enemy of… Read more »
The situation with Russia continues to be very tense, and still escalating in the wrong direction.
For months, Vladimir Putin has been positioning massive levels of troops and military equipment along Russia’s border with Ukraine. And for months, the United States (and most of the world) has responded to this growing threat with words, not actions.
In eastern Ukraine, there are two… Read more »
The situation with Russia continues to get worse by the day.
Many believe an invasion of Ukraine is imminent. In fact, last week the U.S. State Department advised American citizens to leave Ukraine immediately, and started evacuating all but essential staff from our embassy in Kyiv.
Unfortunately, America is no longer operating from a position of strength.
We’ve completely capitulated… Read more »
