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 »
Good news out of the House last week, as we finally passed a reasonable version of the National Defense Authorization Act. If you consume a lot of political news, you may have seen reports about conservative amendments to that legislation, and how I, along with others from the House Freedom Caucus, were fighting hard for those changes.
For a while there, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to… Read more »
This week, the House is working through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). In overly simple terms, the NDAA is annual legislation that sets the operating budget of our Defense Department and (to an extent) prescribes how those funds are to be used.
It remains to be seen whether I’ll be able to vote in favor of the final version of this legislation. There are still a lot of… Read more »
Courage. Honor. Sacrifice.
While there is no proper way to thank those who have laid down their lives for our freedoms, this Memorial Day we remember their sacrifice, praise their courage, and honor them by continuing to love our country so their death may not be in vain. They fought for our freedoms and we must continue to do the same. Read more »
Please join me on Wednesday, April 12th as we meet and hear from Maj. James Capers, one of the most decorated Marines in Force Reconnaissance history!
I've filed a bill in the House, H.R. 587, to authorize the President to award the Medal of Honor to Maj. Capers for acts of valor during the Vietnam War. As the recipient of a Silver Star, two Bronze Stars with “V” for… Read more »
On Wednesday, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) introduced two (2) pieces of legislation addressing the bureaucratic overreach from unelected government officials at the Pentagon:
No Mask Mandate for the Military Act
No Federal Funds for Abortion Travel Expenses Act of 2023
“Our government is constructed to be empowered by the people," said Rep. Norman on… 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 »
Last Thursday, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) introduced H.R. 587, authorizing President Biden to award Major James Capers Jr. the Medal of Honor.
Major Capers was responsible for incredible acts of valor when his Marine Corps special operations team was ambushed during a mission in Phu Loc, Vietnam in 1967 during the Vietnam War.
H.R. 587… 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 »
