Democrats hurt small business when they attack Big Tech

| Posted in Articles

Small businesses are under siege. First COVID-19 shut them down; then protesters and rioters shattered windows and mayors imposed curfews. Now, everyone is hoping we don’t have a second wave of COVID-19 while working to rebuild the economy. Businesses adapted almost overnight, adjusting to operate in the new normal. Digital technologies and platforms played a key role for many small businesses. Te... Read more »

Holding China accountable for attempted coverup of coronavirus

| Posted in Articles

Looking back on all the pain, frustration, and hardship of the last several months, there’s one thing that sticks out to me: it didn’t have to be this bad. We are more than capable of containing a virus if we catch it early. In fact, world leaders built an infrastructure for that exact situation over 70 years ago.

Coronavirus is Democrats' latest excuse to attack the Second Amendment

Despite numerous wars, changing cultures and economies, our Second Amendment has remained strong. The directive “shall not be infringed” is powerful; there are no footnotes, exceptions, or clarifications — not even for coronavirus. Like many Ok... Read more »

Many a great idea has met their doom in Congress because they can’t answer that question. The federal budget is a living, breathing organism. It’s constantly changing and larger than you can wrap your head around. Trillions of federal dollars – that’s 12 zeroes – are... Read more »

Congress must reject Big-Labor backed PRO Act

| Posted in Articles

I’ve seen a lot of bad bills come through Congress this year: attempts to undermine our Constitutional right to free speech, poorly-thought-out plans to restructure the entire American economy, mad grabs for even more of your hard-earned tax dollars, the list goes on and on. In a sea of bad legislation, the PRO Act stands out as the worst bill in Congress. The “Protecting the Right to Organize Act... Read more »

The Border Crisis: My Firsthand Experience

| Posted in Articles

Partisan talking points are insignificant in the face of reality of the humanitarian and national security crisis on our hands. Here are the facts: in the month of May alone, 144,237 people were apprehended crossing the border illegally, totaling 650,000 since the start of 2019. In 2017, there were about 25,000 apprehensions per month, a 576% increase in less than 2 years. This puts an incredible ... Read more »
