On Friday, Jan. 19, hundreds of thousands of demonstrators joined together and walked along the National Mall in Washington, D.C. for the 45th annual March for Life. In full view of the Lincoln Memorial and the U.S. Capitol, and in the shadow of the Washington Monument, marchers raised their voices...
As your representative in Congress, I take the responsibility to provide for the federal government’s operations very seriously. Continuing Resolutions, or extensions of funding from previous fiscal years, are a terrible budgeting option for our country. This fiscal year, the House of...
About 100 years ago the Czar of Russia (is there any other kind?) and his entire family was murdered by a firing squad by the new boys on the block - the Communists as led by Lenin.
