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 »
With thousands of constituents on the phone, I covered a wide variety of topics yesterday during my telephone town hall. This include a long discussion on the the debt ceiling "deal" and our nation's massive debt problem.
For those who missed it, you can catch a full reply here...

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 »
Good news overnight for those who support law enforcement and care about safe communities. Lori Lightfoot, the embattled mayor of Chicago, was sent packing by voters in yesterday’s mayoral election.
Crime in that city is no joke. With only two exceptions, EVERY category of crime had increased under Lori Lightfoot’s watch by significant margins. Overall, crime in Chicago was 20% higher… 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 »
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 »
This is a vivid example of what it means to be soft-on-crime. The man who literally tried to stab Rep. Lee Zeldin yesterday was quickly released within hours of the attack.
For those who haven't heard this news, Rep. Zeldin is running for the governor of New York State. Yesterday, he was giving a campaign speech in the city of Perinton, near Rochester. Out of nowhere, according to video… Read more »
Utterly heartbreaking news this morning. I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Spartanburg County Sheriff's Deputy Austin Aldridge, who was on duty and responding to a domestic incident when he was ambushed and shot yesterday afternoon.
Deputy Aldridge was rushed to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center for care, but tragically passed away last night.
There are simply no words… 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 »
I know we make fun of San Francisco for their utter lunacy on so many issues. But honestly: their voters got it right yesterday.
There was a special election on Tuesday to recall San Francisco's far-left district attorney. (Remember: a district attorney is the public servant responsible for prosecuting crimes in his/her area.)
Chesa Boudin is the name of the district attorney in San… Read more »
