Should Have Happened Long Before Now

| Posted in Blog

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…

One Missed Opportunity After Another

| Posted in Blog

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…

"American Oil from American Soil"

| Posted in Blog

“American oil from American soil.” A critical lesson we must re-learn – particularly given Russia’s hostile invasion of Ukraine – is that America should NOT be relying on despot dictators for the energy we need. Think of “crude oil” as what comes out of the ground. And think of “finished products” as what’s made from crude oil – things like gasoline, diesel, heating oil, lubricating…

Incredible Courage and Determination

| Posted in Blog

Right now, Ukrainians are fighting like hell for their lives, their families, and their country. God bless those people and their president, who are showing incredible courage and determination. I’m livid over the fact our nation, the United States, is NOT doing what it can or should to help Ukraine. I’m not saying U.S. troops should be engaged in this war, but an evil tyrant, Vladimir…

Not Enough To Deter Continued Aggression

| Posted in Blog

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…

Add One More No Vote to My Growing Tally

| Posted in Blog

There was a lady sitting towards the back of the room at my town hall a couple months ago in York County. She appeared rather upset over the number of bills I’d voted against in Congress… ever since Democrats took control of the House. In fact, she seemed to know the exact number! You know, as if my purpose in Congress should be to rubber stamp the Democrats’ socialist agenda. Clearly to…

An Exhausting Week, but Well Worth It

Summer 2021 Town Halls

It's been an exhausting week, but well worth it. We just wrapped up a series of in-person town halls all over the district, and I want to thank the hundreds of people who showed up. It was great to see and hear from so many folks! Also a special thanks to Rep. William Timmons who joined me in Spartanburg, the dozens of law enforcement officers who kept us all safe, and all the venues…

Town Halls Next Week

I'll be hosting seven (7) live, in-person town halls next week all throughout the congressional district.

We have a wide range of starting times, between noon and 5:30 PM, and a wide variety of venues. If you can't make it to…

Whose Side Is He On?

| Posted in Blog

If you’re scratching your head over this, join the crowd. Shortly after killing a pipeline that would have helped Americans and U.S. energy independence, Biden goes on to remove the only legal barriers we have opposing another pipeline that will promote RUSSIAN dominance and likely make our European allies more reliant on Vladimir Putin. Whose side is he on?! Here’s the background…
