Historic Supreme Court Ruling a Win for Sanctity of Life

24 Jun

Read the House GOP Leadership’s statement on the Dobbs Decision:

Today, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23), House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (LA-01), and House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (NY-21) issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“Every unborn child is precious, extraordinary, and worthy of protection. We applaud this historic ruling, which will save countless innocent lives.

“The Supreme Court is right to return the power to protect the unborn to the people’s elected representatives in Congress and the states. In the days and weeks following this decision, we must work to continue to reject extreme policies that seek to allow late-term abortions and taxpayer dollars to fund these elective procedures.

“The people’s representatives must defend the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for every American – born and unborn. As we celebrate today’s decision, we recognize the decades of advocacy from the pro-life movement and we acknowledge much work remains to protect the most vulnerable among us.”
An unborn child is a human life.
Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a case involving a Mississippi law that limits abortion after 15 weeks.

The unborn baby has a heartbeat of approximately 98 beats per minute
Blood vessels are forming into the circulatory system.
The brain is rapidly developing.

The unborn baby has arms and legs, fingers and toes.
The unborn baby is sucking his or her thumb.
The unborn baby can now sigh, stretch, move his or her head, mouth, and tongue.
The baby can kick and will jump if startled.
The unborn baby’s pain receptors have been developing for weeks (week 7)
All of the unborn baby’s major organs have formed.
The unborn baby has a fully developed heart that pumps 26 quarts of blood per day.
The unborn baby can feel pain.
Surgeries have been successfully performed on unborn babies at this age.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America has now recorded more than 40 acts of violence and intimidation against pro-life individuals and organizations since the initial leak of the draft Supreme Court opinion.
The U.S. is one of a small handful of nations, including China and North Korea, that allow late-term abortion on demand up to the moment of birth.
The American people overwhelmingly believe babies born alive should be protected.
According to a new Marist/Knights of Columbus poll, 61% of Americans say abortion should either be:
Illegal – 17%;
Left be up to the states – 44%.
A recent Economist/YouGov national survey shows the majority of Americans support limiting abortion at 15 weeks at the latest:
65% of women
63% of men
The majority of Americans hold strong opposition to Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration’s support of taxpayer-funded abortions:
58% oppose taxpayer dollars funding abortions in the U.S.
77% oppose taxpayer dollars funding abortion in other countries.
63% of Americans, including 42% of Democrats, oppose new federal rules that allow abortion pills to be sent through the mail without an in-person visit to a medical professional.
On the government forcing their radical agenda on Americans:
Three-quarters say healthcare professionals who have religious objections to abortion should not be forced to perform them.
54% say organizations who have religious objections to abortion should not be legally required to provide insurance coverage for abortion.
Since 2016, pregnancy centers have saved more than 800,000 lives.

Joe Biden’s Open-Border Policies Have Incentivized 50 Suspected Terrorists to Cross Our Border

22 Jun

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data, at least 50 individuals on the terrorist watchlist have been apprehended attempting to cross our southern border since October.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Border security IS national security. Joe Biden’s open-border policies are endangering every community in America.


  • 50 people on the Terrorist Screening Database have been apprehended attempting to illegally enter the U.S. since October, which is the beginning of the fiscal year.
    • This is OVER a 200% increase from ALL of FY2021.
  • Since Biden took office, OVER 2.9 MILLION illegal immigrants have been apprehended at our southern border.
  • According to new CBP data, there were 239,416 migrant encounters at our southern border in May.
    • This is the highest in CBP’s 22-year record for monthly crossings and the second month in a row for this record high.
    • That is up 32% from May 2021.
    • That is a 930% increase from 2020.
    • 25% of those encounters were individuals who had at least one prior encounter in the previous 12 months.
      • Compared to April of this year, the number of unique individuals encountered increased 15% in May.
    • OVER 60% of these encounters were single adults.
    • 42% of encounters were expelled using Title 42.
    • May was the 15th straight month of encounters OVER 150,000.
  • These staggering numbers come as the Biden administration is still fighting in court to lift Title 42, a decision that will only worsen the historic border crisis.
    • According to a Politico/Harvard poll, the majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s fight to repeal Title 42.
  • A report shows drug overdoses, mostly from opioids, hit an all-time high in 2021 of OVER 100,000.
    • Since Biden took office, CBP has seized1,060,100 pounds of illegal drugs, including 7,700 pounds of fentanyl so far in FY22.
  • Border Patrol and Secretary Mayorkas have confirmed that over 700,000 known “gotaways” have evaded CBP apprehension at the southern border since Biden took office.

Inflation Continues To Skyrocket With No Signs Of Cooling Off

10 Jun

The Consumer Price Index (CPI), a key inflation index, hit its highest rate in OVER 40-years high in May. The CPI increased 8.6% over the past 12 months, its highest rate since December 1981.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Inflation is a tax on ALL Americans, and it has steadily increased over the span of Joe Biden’s failed presidency. As inflation has continued to skyrocket, wages have actually DECREASED.


  • Inflation is a tax on ALL Americans.
  • In May, the CPI increased 8.6%for the 12 months ending May, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending December 1981.
  • Wages are not keeping up with inflation, and have actually DECREASED, while prices for goods have risen.
  • Real wages are down nearly 4% from the beginning of the Biden Administration.
  • Real average hourly earnings decreased 3.0%, seasonally adjusted, from May 2021 to May 2022.
  • Real wages have decreased under Biden 10 out of the last 12 months.
  • Americans are paying more for just about everything because of inflation:
  • Most Americans expect inflation to get worse in the next year and are adjusting their spending habits in response to rising prices.

Pelosi’s Sham Political Witch-Hunt Is So Scripted They Need Teleprompters

10 Jun

Any doubt that Lame Duck Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s political witch-hunt would be anything more than a made-for-TV faux drama was put to rest almost immediately when footage surfaced that the sham committee was relying on teleprompters.

Once again, Pelosi and House Democrats are desperately attempting to change the narrative rather than addressing the numerous crises facing America.


  • This is a partisan and illegitimate Committee.
  • These hearings are a Hollywoodized production with cherry picked statements and details to paint the false narrative Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have already determined.
  • The goal of these hearings is NOT to prevent another January 6th but to punish the political opponents of Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats.
  • Speaker Pelosi took the unprecedented step of blocking the participation of the Republicans that Leader McCarthy chose to serve on the Select Committee.
  • The Committee is not following its own charter:
  • The Committee’s charter says that it must have 13 members, it only has 9.
  • The charter says that the Committee must have a lawyer from the ranking minority member during a deposition—there is no ranking minority member and no staff appointed by the minority.
  • The Committee has even misled witnesses being questioned about the position of the attorney questioning them. Mollie Hemingway broke that news HERE.
  • This is an abusive Committee whose mission is to harass and snoop on its political opponents.
  • The FBI has found that there was no “organized plot” on 1/6, but the Committee has based its investigation on the conspiracy that there was an attempted insurrection,
  • The Committee has subpoenaed multiple individuals for the sole “crime” of organizing a first amendment protected political rally.
  • From their press release: “The committee used permit paperwork for the Jan. 6 rally to identify other individuals involved in organizing.”
  • The Committee has interviewed over 150 people, swept up geolocation data and call records of rally organizers and low-level Trump staffers, and even may subpoena sitting members of Congress.
  • This isn’t just a sham Committee—Democrats are covering up the truth about what happened on January 6.
  • The Capitol Chief Police board which includes the Senate and HouseSergeant at Arms and the Architect of the Capitol was slow to call National Guard assistance on 1/6 (pg. 62).
  • The Senate released a report and Pelosi’s House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving refused to comply with ANY information requests. From page 4of the Senate report.
  • These documents are the property of the House and Speaker Pelosi and Bennie Thompson could get them with an email—but they refuse!
  • Not surprising because Bennie Thompson has said that Speaker Pelosi is off limits
  • The Committee is not investigating the breakdown in security on the 6th, even though its charter requires it to.
  • The Select Committee’s authoritarian undertaking against Americans has no place in Congress.
  • The Select Committee is ignoring their actual charter – to look at why we were so unprepared and what we can do to prevent this from happening again.

Pelosi’s Sham Primetime Show Is NOT About Finding the Truth

10 Jun

TOPLINE MESSAGING (Courtesy of House Administration Committee Republicans and the Republican Study Committee)

  • Democrats and the Select Committee are no closer to finding out what led to the catastrophic security failure on January 6, 2021. Their singular focus has been to attack President Trump and punish anyone associated with him.
  • It is all about politics for the Select Committee. With soaring gas prices, baby formula shortages, sky-high inflation, rising crime rates, and illegal aliens flooding across the border, the only thing Democrats have to run on is going after President Trump.
  • Leader McCarthy appointed five Republicans to serve on the Select Committee. Speaker Pelosi took unprecedented action and refused to seat two of Leader McCarthy’s choices. Since then, those five Republicans have been hard at work conducting their own investigation to get answers for the American people.
  • Over the past year, there have been numerous internal reviews conducted of the security vulnerabilities with the Capitol complex and security structure. In total there were hundreds of findings with many of the same themes across the board: lack of adequate planning and training, failure of internal intelligence processes, insufficient documentation of procedures, and an inefficient command and control structure. Most recommendations have not been implemented.


  • Why were our officers under equipped on that day? Why were some officers forced to face down a riot without helmets or expired equipment?
  • Why were the Capitol Police officers not trained on how to handle a riot even after all the riots that took place in D.C. during the summer of 2020?
  • Did Speaker Pelosi communicate with the House Sergeant at Arms on January 6 or in the days leading up to the riot?
  • Why didn’t the Capitol Police’s Intelligence Division raise the alarm about potential violence when they had intelligence going back weeks before January 6 that told them something was going to happen?
  • Was Speaker Pelosi involved in the decision to delay National Guard assistance on January 6?

Americans Reject Democrats’ Defund The Police Movement As The Crime Crisis Worsens

9 Jun

This week, in Speaker Pelosi’s own district, San Francisco residents overwhelmingly voted to recall their radical Far-Left District Attorney Chesa Boudin in yet another rebuke of Democrats’ failed agenda. Because of the soft-on-crime policies of Democrats like Boudin, along with the Defund the Police movement pushed by certain House Democrats, homicide rates across the country have skyrocketed, and our law enforcement are under attack by violent criminals.

Rather than focus on the crime crisis facing Americans, House Democrats will be holding their illegitimate January 6th committee’s sham hearing this evening and held a hearing earlier this week to push their radical gun control agenda. One witness, Lucretia Hughes Klucken, whose son was killed by a convicted felon with an illegal gun, shared powerful testimony slamming Democrats for wanting to strip Second Amendment rights from law-abiding Americans like her.


  • Nationally, violent crime is rising in Democrat-run cities.
  • So far in 2022, homicide rates across the country have increased 48% compared to this time in 2020, according to the Major Cities Chiefs Association.
  • Shootings of police officers have increased 38% compared to this time in 2020, according to the National Fraternal Order of Police.
    • 141 officers have been shot so far in 2022.
      • 21 of whom were killed, up 6% compared to 2020.
    • 42 officers have been shot in ambush-style attacks.
      • These attacks are up over 50% compared to 2020.
  • According to a ABC News/Washington Post poll of voters, Republicansbeat Democrats by 12 points on handling crime, the highest in this poll’s 32-year history.
    • A Politico/Morning Consult poll shows 2 in 3 voters, 69% of Americans, think more police funding would decrease crime.
    • A new Ipsos poll also found that 64% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of crime.
  • Under President Biden, more police officers were killed in the line of duty in 2021 than in any year since 1995.
    • In 2021, 73 police officers were killed – a 59% increase from 2020.
  • In 2021, over a dozen U.S. cities set new homicide records.
  • In 2021, there were 346 officers shot, 63 of whom were killed by gunfire.
  • In 2021, there were 103 ambush-style attacks on law enforcement officers, a 115% increase from 2020.
  • Progressive prosecutors are in cities that represent over 20% of the nation’s population.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Americans deserve law and order and are fed up with Democrats’ Far-Left soft-on-crime policies that endanger ALL of our communities. House Republicans, however, know the answer is NOT Democrats’ radical gun control agenda.

Democrats Push Radical Gun Control Bills That Show They Are Not Serious About Preventing Tragedy

8 Jun

Rather than join House Republicans in combating the root causes of mass shootings, Democrats and President Biden are politicizing heartbreak in order to ram through a radical gun control agenda that will do nothing to prevent these tragedies from taking place again.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Republicans have actually passed legislation and have introduced solutions to harden schools, support mental health care, expand information sharing, and promote gun safety and training for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

OPPOSE: H.R. 2377, THE “FEDERAL EXTREME RISK PROTECTION ORDER ACT OF 2021” (Courtesy of Judiciary Republicans):

Sponsor: Rep. Lucy McBath (D-GA)

  • This bill will eviscerate firearm owners’ due process rights. This bill destroys the presumption of innocence that is the bedrock of our criminal justice system. It does away with the notion that an individual is innocent until proven guilty, and instead, makes anyone subject to an extreme risk protection order guilty until proven innocent. An individual will have his or her firearms and ammunition confiscated without notice or the opportunity to be heard in court.

  • Federal law already prohibits dangerous and unfit individuals from purchasing or possessing firearms. An individual with a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction, an individual involuntarily committed to a mental institution or adjudicated “mentally defective,” or an individual who is an unlawful user of a controlled substance are all prohibited from possessing or purchasing a firearm.

  • The universe of individuals who can petition a court for an extreme risk protection order under this bill is too broad and creates a process that is ripe for abuse. The expansive list includes a law enforcement officer, parent, spouse, sibling, child, dating partner, roommate, domestic partner, and anyone with whom the individual lived for the past year. Any one of these individuals would be permitted to petition a court for an extreme risk protection order after overcoming the low evidentiary bar of “probable cause” for a federal order and “reasonable cause” for a state order. This bill will create an opportunity for a disgruntled ex-roommate, aggrieved domestic partner, or angry adult child to use the judicial system to harass and burden an individual by requiring law enforcement to seize the individual’s firearms and ammunition.

  • Studies suggest that this bill would not save lives or reduce crime. A study conducted by the Crime Prevention Research Center in 2018 found that “red flag laws had no significant effect on murder, suicide, the number of people killed in mass public shootings, robbery, aggravated assault, or burglary.” Furthermore, states have shown that many extreme risk protection orders have been overturned when the respondent finally has an opportunity to be heard.

OPPOSE: H.R. 7910, “PROTECTING OUR KIDS ACT” (Courtesy of Judiciary Republicans):

Sponsor: Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY)

  • H.R. 7910 contains unconstitutional restrictions on Americans’ rights. The Second Amendment protects the right of Americans to keep and bear arms, which includes the right to purchase them. However, H.R. 7910 would prohibit 18 to 20 year-olds from buying nearly all semiautomatic rifles and shotguns. The liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals recently struck down a similar California law as unconstitutional. The court found that using the heinous acts of a small number of individuals in a demographic class as a pretext for taking away the constitutional rights of all 18 to 20 year-olds would create “a malleable and meaningless limit on the government’s power to restrict constitutional rights.”

  • H.R. 7910 would fail to prevent gun violence or ensure the safety of all Americans. During Judiciary Committee consideration of this bill, Chairman Nadler conceded that the strict gun laws in liberal jurisdictions don’t work because criminals are able to obtain guns elsewhere. Rep. Steve Cohen admitted that the Democrats’ bill will make it harder for law-abiding Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Committee Democrats even rejected a Republican amendment that would have ensured that victims of domestic violence can receive a firearm from a friend or neighbor to protect themselves.

  • H.R. 7910 is not a serious attempt to find solutions. This bill is focused only on the firearms used in a small number of crimes and not the broader problem of gun violence or what drives some individuals to commit these terrible acts. H.R. 7910 does nothing to address mental health or prevent the dozens of shootings that occur weekly in Democrat-run cities across America. If Democrats were serious about addressing gun violence they would engage in serious conversation about public safety instead of political theater.

Biden’s Energy Crisis is Only Getting Worse as He Doubles Down on His War on American Energy

7 Jun

Gas prices have officially DOUBLED since Joe Biden took office. The national average for a gallon of gas has risen every single day for over two weeks—up 25 cents in just the last week, and up a shocking 59 cents in the last month. Ten states now have average prices at or above $5 a gallon.

Americans are suffering this historic pain at the pump as President Biden continues to beg Saudi Arabia to boost the global supply of oil, stifles America’s domestic energy production by halting new lease sales, and depletes our Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Sadly, this is Joe Biden’s America.


  • Gas prices under Joe Biden have been historic.
  • The national average for a gallon of gas is $4.91 as of Tuesday.
    • This is another all-time high.
    • Diesel prices have skyrocketed 75% in just one year.
    • Economists are projecting that the average national retail price for a gallon of regular gasoline will surpass $6 a gallon by August.
  • A new report shows Americans will spend $5,000 this year on gas, a 78% increase from the $2,800 Americans spent a year ago.
  • President Biden has continued to recklessly deplete the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR), which is meant for war or major weather events, for his political benefit. Now, the SPR is at its lowest point since 1987.
  • Americans are smart. They know this is Biden’s Price Hike – no one-else’s.


  • As this energy crisis surges, the Biden administration has continually passed the buck by blaming domestic energy producers:
    • Biden’s regulatory assault destroys ANY incentive for domestic energy producers to invest, and it worsens energy market volatility.
    • Most recently, Biden announced that his administration would no longer hold court-ordered offshore oil and gas lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska.
  • On day one of Joe Biden’s presidency, he launched his war on American energy when he killed the Keystone XL pipeline, which could be supplying 830,000 thousand barrels of oil from Canada to U.S. refineries.
  • Recently, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposedextensive new rules that would require companies to disclose “climate-related risks” in an attempt to push Democrats’ environmental agenda through the inappropriate vehicle of securities law. This is a blatant move to starve American energy companies of capital and to publicly shame businesses not politically favored by Democrats.
  • In March 2020, President Trump directed the Department of Energy (DOE) to purchase 30 million barrels to begin filling the SPR.
  • Biden has now started the largest ever loan from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve of 180 million barrels of oil over six months.
    •  The SPR is meant for weather or national security emergencies, not political expediency.
    • This sale will deplete our Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) by 40% once the release is complete.
  • Biden has continued to beg dictators and other foreign adversaries for help easing prices.
    • Recently, Biden officials once again begged Saudi Arabia to help boost oil supply, doubling down on Biden’s anti-American energy agenda.


  1. End the federal freeze on oil and gas leases.
  2. Fast-track pending LNG export permits
  3. Expedite approval of all pipeline and energy development
  4. Stop the regulatory assault on U.S. energy development and financing

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Joe Biden and House Democrats’ war on American energy is responsible for the pain at the pump. Americans deserve efficient, affordable, and American-made energy, but this administration has chosen its Far-Left Green New Deal agenda instead. It’s time to unleash American energy dominance.

Pelosi’s Sham Jan 6th Committee Secretly Hired News Producer Who Covered Up for Jeffrey Epstein & Enabled His Disgusting Conduct

6 Jun

Nancy Pelosi’s illegitimate sham January 6th Committee secretly hired the former president of ABC News, James Goldston to be the secret producer for their shameless primetime hearings. This is the same producer who prevented the network from airing an interview with one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims.

Axios reported this morning:

“James Goldston — former president of ABC News, and a master documentary storyteller who ran “Good Morning America” and “Nightline” — has joined the committee as an unannounced adviser…” 

In 2019, “Good Morning America” reporter Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic claiming network brass scrapped her interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser to appease the Royal Family.

Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter to Goldston following this revelation, demanding answers for why the interview was scrapped and alleging that the network and Goldston “enabled” Epstein to continue his illegal conduct by not airing the interview and blowing the whistle on his sex trafficking ring.

“I am deeply concerned that this victim, in search of justice, went to ABC News, provided information and an interview, and then ABC News chose to bury the truth. This was a decision that Ms. Robach alluded was due to protecting powerful people or financial interests,” McCarthy wrote.

The appointment of Goldston to Pelosi’s witch-hunt is just further proof that this is nothing more than a disgusting sham aimed at distracting the American people.

Pelosi and Democrats Try to Pass the Buck for Historic Gas Prices Caused by Their Own Far-Left Agenda

19 May

Today, the price for a gallon of gas hit an all-time high for the tenth consecutive day. Instead of offering real solutions to address this crisis, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are passing the buck and blaming oil and gas companies for America’s energy crisis, which their war on American energy created.

​​MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Democrats’ bill to punish oil and gas companies for skyrocketing gas prices by accusing them of price gougingdoes nothing to address the pain at the pump Americans are feeling daily. This bill will only make America’s energy crisis WORSE by price-fixing. Instead of helping to unleash American energy dominance, House Democrats continue to block House Republicans’ American Independence From Russia Act, showing they have NO intention of easing this pain at the pump for Americans.


  • Gives President Biden power to declare an energy emergency, arming the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with tools to impose de-facto, arbitrary caps on “Mom and Pop” gas stations for the price of fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, and propane.
  • Will lead to even less domestic oil and gas production at a time when we desperately need to increase both.
  • Attacks small businesses and retailers who have no control over rising energy prices and the Administration’s failures to fix supply chains.
  • Like in the 1970s, this will lead to fuel shortages and massive lines at the pump, affecting Americans’ ability to go to school, go to work, and live their lives. They are already suffering enough under the inflation, energy, and supply chain crises created by President Biden’s failed agenda for more government command and control.


  • Americans are smart. They know this is Biden’s Price Hike – no one-else’s.
  • The national average for a gallon of gas is $4.58 as of Thursday.
    • This is the tenth record high for gas in a row – an all-time record.
  • Earlier this month, U.S. natural gas prices rose to the highest point in 13 years.
    • Crude oil is currently at $107.39.
    • Crude oil has remained above $90 a barrel, a 2014 record, for over three straight months.
    • Skyrocketing gas prices will now cost the average American household an extra $2,000 per year.


  1. End the federal freeze on new oil and gas leases.
  2. Fast-track pending LNG export permits
  3. Expedite approval of all pipeline and energy development
  4. Stop the regulatory assault on U.S. energy development and financing
