  • McConnell cites Reagan in pitch for national security bill

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) cited former President Reagan in a pitch for a national security bill in a Wednesday opinion piece. “Today, much like in the Washington President Reagan faced, it has become popular in some circles to bet against American resolve and bemoan the global responsibilities that come with global power,” McConnell said in the op-ed in the Northern Kentucky Tribune. “Loud voices peddle the short-sighted and ahistorical notion that America’s interests do not extend beyond the water’s edge, and that abandoning our friends is the price of restoring order at home.” McConnell then said he and...

    Bearing Arms ^ | 2/20/24 | Cam Edwards
    The right of the people to keep and bear arms isn't just about our individual ability to act in self-defense or defense of others. As the Founders knew, the body of the people capable of bearing arms (otherwise known as the unorganized militia) is necessary to the security of a free state as well. Second Amendment attorneys Chuck Michel and Kostas Moros have done an excellent job of laying out the arguments of the Founding Generation in their recent law review article entitled Restrictions "Our Ancestors Would Never Have Accepted": The Historical Case Against Assault Weapon Bans, but the government...

    Our Most Serious National Security Threat Isn’t Russian Nukes In Space, It’s Intelligence Agencies In WashingtonThe hysteria on Capitol Hill over Russian nukes in space was a cheap ploy to ram through Ukraine aid and kill FISA reform.It was a busy day in Washington on Wednesday as the intelligence bureaucracy tried to foment a national security panic over Russian nukes in space in hopes of ramming through the Ukraine aid package and killing reforms designed to curb its power to spy on Americans.Lest you think that sounds crazy, consider the timing of the panic provocations, which came almost immediately after...

    House Speaker Mike Johnson on Wednesday morning shut down the Senate’s foreign aid bill and blasted Joe Biden in a fiery press conference. Last week Republican Senators voted against advancing a compromised ‘border security bill’ that would have allocated more money to foreign countries while largely ignoring the US border. The Senate’s $118.28 billion national security supplemental package allocated $60 billion in military aid to Ukraine. Only $20.23 billion was allocated to secure the US border amid an unprecedented invasion of military-age males from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and China. After this bill failed to pass the Senate...

    House Intelligence Committee Chair Mike Turner has made information concerning a “serious national security threat” available to all members of Congress to review, the committee said on Wednesday. While Turner and the White House remained vague on what the threat entailed, two sources and a US official tell CNN the threat is related to Russia. Multiple sources familiar with the intelligence characterized it as “very sensitive.” One of the sources who has seen the intelligence confirmed that “it is, in fact, a highly concerning and destabilizing” Russian capability “that we were recently made aware of.”

    “It’s not if they are going to attack, it’s just when they are.” That’s what Ohio’s Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said after attending the National Sheriffs’ Association Conference in Washington, D.C, held Feb. 3-6, according to the Journal-News. At the conference, FBI officials warned sheriffs from across the country about imminent terrorist attacks on the U.S. “There are people already here who have come to this country who hate us and want to kill us,” Jones warned. He’s on a mission to make sure his department is prepared. https://pbs.twimg.com/card_img/1755253062908665856/jOfqhKmD?format=jpg&name=small The new generation of terrorists is sophisticated.

    More deflection, more excuses. The Biden regime has had three years to lock down the border and they simply refused to do so. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was on NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday morning to talk about the border crisis. “You have now been in your position for three years, and let’s talk about what’s happened during those three years. More migrants have crossed the border illegally last year than ever before,” Kristin Welker said to Secretary Mayorkas. “The data you cite is a powerful example of why we need legislation to fix what everyone agrees is a...

    A new IRS inspector general report said the nation’s tax collection agency continued to give 19 contractors access to sensitive systems despite having background reports that were returned as “not favorable.” Despite having the unfavorable rating returned as recently as July 13, 2023, “These contractors still retained their access to one or more sensitive systems because the IRS did not take action to suspend or disable the contractors from the IRS’s systems, as required,” according to a report issued this week by the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration. IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel — who took over the agency...

    Sunday released the details of a long-awaited comprehensive border security bill, which also contains a substantial foreign aid component. The discussions, led by Senators James Lankford (R-OK), Krysten Sinema (I-AZ), and Chris Murphy (D-CT), come after months of negotiations with the Biden regime, seeking to address both the ongoing crisis at the U.S. southern border and foreign policy commitments abroad. The 370-page deal, according to Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, claims it reflects weeks of good-faith negotiations, balancing domestic concerns with urgent international aid needs. “As Ukraine runs low on ammunition to fend off Putin’s...

    Former President Trump vowed to block the sale of U.S. Steel to the Japanese Nippon Steel Corporation if he secures a second term in the White House. “I would block it, I think it’s a horrible thing. When Japan buys U.S. Steel, I would block it instantaneously. Absolutely,” he told reporters Wednesday after meeting with the Teamsters union in Washington. Trump did not say how he planned to block the deal between U.S. Steel and Nippon Steel. “We saved the steel industry. Now, U.S. Steel is being bought by Japan. So terrible. But yeah, we want to bring jobs back...

    President Biden is in a pickle of his own making, and his efforts to deal with it are as idiotic and destructive as his open borders policy has been. Last month alone over 300,000 mostly military age men illegally crossed our border, with the Border Patrol tasked to easing their invasion and even making them sandwiches rather than detaining and deporting them. Texas governor Greg Abbott directed his National Guard to obstruct their passage by placing floats in the river at the border and installing barbed wire topped fences at Shelby Park in Eagle Pass, Texas. He also spread the...

    A constitutional crisis looms as states like Texas have taken it upon themselves to enforce our nation's immigration laws and protect our country from invasion. Earlier this week, the Biden administration demanded Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton give Border Patrol access to a city park on the Rio Grande riverfront, but the Texas National Guard continued to defend the state of Texas and, indeed, the United States, despite those threats. Since then, Joe Biden has been under pressure from the left to federalize the Texas National Guard so they can’t block U.S. Customs and Border Patrol from removing razor wire...

Abbott pointed out that state forces were already operating at the border and that he expects more forces to come to Texas from other state National Guards. “There’ve been about ten [states] so far that have sent National Guard or other...
