President Trump exercised one of the most significant responsibilities given to him by Article II of the United States Constitution this week when he nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.

Washington, DC- Today, Congressman Jason Smith (MO-08) welcomed Reverend Jennifer Moxley to Washington D.C. for the 65th Annual National Prayer Breakfast. Reverend Moxley currently serves as associate pastor of First United Methodist Church in Sikeston, MO.

It is not every day that a Missourian gets to sit on the steps of the United States Capitol and witness firsthand a Presidential swearing in ceremony.
January 22nd marks the 44th anniversary of the Supreme Court Ruling that has left over 59 million and counting dead - Roe v. Wade. On January 27th, thousands of people around the country will participate in the March for Life to serve as a voice for those who weren’t given a choice to live.
The most important speech for the future of this country wasn’t the one President Obama gave this past week, a speech which looked back at eight years of failures, but instead will be the speech about our future Donald J Trump will deliver from the steps of the U.S. Capitol on Friday.
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

Thanks to Mr. Blake Gerard, Mr. Paul Combs, and Mr. Rance Daniels for stopping by to discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead for rice farmers. I always enjoy visiting and sharing ideas with these guys back in Missouri and when they are out in Washington.
Always a pleasure to meet with university representatives from home.
