Hurricane Ian Update

| Posted in Blog

Just a quick update for those who haven’t been following Hurricane Ian. It is now a slow-moving, dangerous Category 4 hurricane, and is expected to make landfall along Florida’s Gulf Coast soon. First things first: if you have family or friends who live in the peninsula of Florida, please encourage them to follow the guidance of their local emergency officials. Unfortunately, this storm…

No Way To Run a Government

| Posted in Blog

About 10 days ago, I wrote a post about how the federal government is only authorized to spend money through 11:59 PM this Thursday night. And I told you that without legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President, a government “shut-down” of non-essential services could happen starting early Friday morning. Well, not much has changed since I wrote that post on September…

Hurricane Ian

I want to put this on everyone’s radar, just for awareness. By Wednesday, a slow-moving hurricane is expected to impact Florida. Depending on its ultimate path, we may experience some heavy weather up in our part of South Carolina.   As of this (Monday) morning, this storm is not a major cause for alarm for our part of South Carolina. Hopefully the impacts along the Gulf…

The Ending Catch and Release Act

| Posted in Blog

Joe Biden’s border policies are the primary reasons for the surge of illegal migrants along our southern border – there’s just no arguing otherwise. Before leaving Washington this week, I signed on as an original co-sponsor to Rep. Andy Biggs’ new bill to address two of those policies. The first is known as “catch & release.” For those who are apprehended by our Border Patrol,…

Commitment to America

| Posted in Blog

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…

Another Month, Another Record Along Biden’s Wide-open Southern Border.

| Posted in Blog

Another month, another record along Biden’s wide-open southern border. For the first time in American history, the number of encounters of illegal migrants along our southern border has surpassed TWO MILLION for the fiscal year, which runs from October 1st through September 30th. That’s according to data released yesterday by the Border Patrol. It is the President’s responsibility…

Martha's Vineyard is Fine

| Posted in Blog

Did you notice how Democrats and many in the media utterly lost their minds over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flying 50 migrants from his state up to Martha's Vineyard? The phony outrage over this has been priceless. It’s pure gold as far as I’m concerned.  Those migrants received a free chartered flight up to one of the nicest, most exclusive islands in our entire county, and CBS…

Kicking the Can Down the Road

| Posted in Blog

If you like peeking behind the curtain and knowing how the sausage is made in Washington, this post is for you. As it stands right now, the federal government is only authorized to spend money through September 30th, which is the end of its fiscal year. Without legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President, a government “shut-down” of non-essential services could happen…
