141 Pages to Define "Water"

| Posted in Blog

One of the most obnoxious abuses of government power has been against farmers and other landowners with respect to water on their property (e.g. ponds, streams, etc.). To illustrate how out of control the federal government has become, several agencies have crafted a 141-page document to revise the legal definition of "Waters of the United States." You see, if any body of water meets…

Remarks at CPAC

| Posted in Blog

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!

Weak on Crime Mayor Sent Packing

| Posted in Blog

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…

Voting to Block Misguided ESG Ruling

| Posted in Blog

Your retirement money should NOT be used to help advance the left's climate and social agenda. Later today, I'll be voting to help prevent that from happening. Here’s what you need to know: There’s a liberal movement in investing and business known as “ESG.” That stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. It’s a form of virtue signaling where company leaders invest money and…

2.27 Winter Session

Over the next seven weeks, the House is scheduled to be in session a whopping… 14 days. Oh, not to mention we’re just now heading back to D.C. today after being home for the last two weeks. *** This further illustrates how utterly ridiculous it was for some Republicans to have been angry at me and 19 others for negotiating during the House Speaker’s vote back in January. They literally…

Jaw Dropping Report from the CBO

| Posted in Blog

There was a jaw dropping report yesterday from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). They issued a very alarming update which reaffirms what I’ve been saying about our out-of-control spending and national debt. First, let’s make sure we have two terms properly defined: deficit vs. debt. This year, your federal government will spend $1.4 trillion more than it takes in through tax…

More Objects Taken Down

| Posted in Blog

The bottom line is we still know VERY LITTLE about these spy balloons. Right now, it’s easier to discuss what we ~don’t~ know rather than what we do. Not helping matters is President Biden, who has been out to lunch concerning these intrusions. Why is this important? I can’t recall a time in history when our military has shot down a foreign object over the continental United States. In…

Reaction to Last Night's State of the Union

| Posted in Blog

I need to point this out, because it was completely ignored in the mainstream media’s analysis after the State of the Union address last night. Forget the slurred speech, forget the missing words, forget the awkward reactions when Republicans jeered at his blatant lies. Forget all that. My biggest takeaway from last night was Biden’s desire for TRILLIONS of dollars’ worth of new…
