Just a quick follow-up on this post from a few days ago for those who might be interested... H.R. 3985 is a bill meant to help translators and others from Afghanistan who served and aided American forces over there. Essentially it smooths the pathway for them to be issued Special Immigrant Visas. It came up for a vote earlier today in the House. Remember, these are people who risked…

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…

Later this (Thursday) morning, we're going to re-introduce a bill in the House that will prevent the closure of Parris Island, the preeminent training base for U.S. Marine Corps recruits.   Rep. Joe Wilson (SC-2) and I introduced this same bill last October. However, a new term in Congress means the bill must be re-introduced, and we're both pleased to have every Republican…

Lots of people are missing the bigger issue here on the treatment of National Guard troops at the U.S. Capitol. This is more than a “miscommunication.” It’s a lack of Congressional leadership.   If you’re going to call in over 20,000 members of the National Guard… If you’re going to take them away from their families, their jobs, and their homes for weeks on end… If you’re…

New Bill: No Funds to China's Military Act

PLA

Let’s say a government-controlled company started selling televisions at crazy low prices all over the world. Like a huge 4K flat screen for under $50 – many hundreds of dollars less than every other TV on the market. Let’s say the televisions work well and had great reviews, and because that government is subsidizing the cost, no other company could come close to those low…

If you were going to write the script for a military action movie where the leading character was a larger than life, fearless war hero, the inspiration for that movie could easily be Major James Capers. Born in Bishopville, South Carolina, he enlisted in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. After serving in combat infantry, he re-enlisted and would soon become the first…
