Spartanburg County Sheriff's Deputy Austin Aldridge

| Posted in Blog

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 that can expre...

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 with one less...

San Francisco Finally Got It Right, for a Change

| Posted in Blog

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 Francisco. Bou...

It’s National Police Week

Police Week 2022

As loudly as I can say this: THANK GOD for our law enforcement officers. It’s National Police Week. I don’t mean to sound like a broken record when it comes to supporting law enforcement, but I think we’re living in odd times right now: Across the nation, too many categories of violent crime are on the rise. Too many parents are not raising their children correctly. Too many prosecutors and judge...

Huge Win for First Responders

| Posted in Blog

FIRST RESPONDERS: we had a huge win in the House of Representatives earlier this week. Almost a year ago, I co-sponsored a bill in the House known as the “Putting First Responders First Act.” The purpose of that bill was to help police, fire and EMS personnel who are injured in the line of duty. Under existing law, if a first responder is injured on the job and is unable to work, disability compen...

Her Judicial Record

| Posted in Blog

I don’t understand the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. I really don’t. In all of our nation, there is no higher court. Its rulings affect virtually every other court, and there are no avenues of appeal beyond it. This means how the Supreme Court interprets our Constitution and matters of law is vitally important. It also means the justices serving on the Supreme Cour...
