Holding the Biden family accountable

As a leader of the House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry, I’ve been on the frontlines in the fight to get Americans the truth about the Biden family’s shady, multimillion-dollar business schemes. As part of this effort, under my leadership, the Ways and Means Committee helped bring to light the testimony of two brave IRS whistleblowers who alleged that the Department of Justice (DOJ) delayed, denied, and divulged key information about an investigation into the president’s son, and exposed that ...

Back the Blue

Between May 12 to May 18, communities all across the country came together to celebrate National Police Week. It’s an important annual tradition where we thank our law enforcement officers and pay our respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice – like Bonne Terre Police Officer Lane Burns, whose life was tragically cut short in 2022. I will continue to keep him, his family, and loved ones in my prayers. Sadly, this is an incredibly dangerous time for law enforcement – something we are remi...

Rooting out antisemitism on campus

Like so many Americans, I have been absolutely appalled by the rampant antisemitism we’re seeing on college campuses. It’s unacceptable that in America in 2024, vicious mobs are harassing, chasing down, and blocking students from entering buildings on college campuses because of their Jewish faith. And let me be clear: these mobs aren’t anti-war protestors; they are terrorist-supporting hate groups. Earlier this month, I met with a Harvard graduate student who came to Washington to ask lawmakers...

Smith Congratulates Winner, Finalists of 2024 Congressional Art Competition

WASHINGTON – On May 2, U.S. Representative Jason Smith (Mo.) held a reception in Perryville, Mo., to recognize high school students from Missouri’s 8th Congressional District who made it to the final round of the 2024 Congressional Art Competition. At the event, Smith announced that Miah Bressie, a senior at Houston High School, took home first place for her piece, “Mistique”. “The Congressional Art Competition is a great annual tradition where we highlight the incredible young artists of southe...

The Bidenomics Disaster

Last week, President Biden called for the expiration of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, President Trump’s signature legislation that jump started the best economy of my lifetime and that continues to provide needed tax relief to working families today. In one statement, the president promised American workers, families, farmers, and small businesses that they would see their taxes go up – breaking his promise that families making less than $400,000 would not receive a tax increase. In fact, Biden’s p...

Failed Biden Trade Policies Mean Falling Ag Exports Hurting American Farmers

American farmers and ranchers have faced increasing challenges in recent years made worse by President Biden’s refusal to lay out a strategic trade agenda and, worse, his failure to advocate for American agriculture on the world stage. In 2023, the U.S. agricultural trade deficit reached a staggering $21 billion, continuing a trend of rising trade deficits that began under the current administration. This is especially alarming when compared to the average trade surplus of over $5.2 billion for ...

The dangerous consequences of Biden’s failed foreign policy agenda

On April 13, the Iranian regime carried out a massive, unprecedented attack against Israel using drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles. I’m glad the attack was largely thwarted, but I can’t imagine how terrifying it must have been for Israeli families. I will continue to keep them in my prayers during these dangerous times. While the Iranian regime has previously relied on its network of terror groups to attack Israel, this was the first time it has carried out a strike from its own so...

Facts don't lie

For far too long, Washington Democrats and the liberal media have worked hand-in-hand to mislead Americans about the situation on our border. They say that the border is secure and that Biden’s agenda is working. And if you don’t believe them, they call you ignorant – or even worse – racist. We saw a panel on MSNBC mock Virginia Republicans who listed the border as a top priority during coverage of Super Tuesday. More recently, a Democrat in Congress told the audience at a candidate forum to "fo...

A new front in the Left’s culture war

On March 31, millions of Christians around the world celebrated Easter Sunday. For Christians, Easter is the holiest of holidays; a cherished time where we celebrate Christ’s resurrection and remember that God’s only son died on the cross so that our sins would be forgiven. Instead of affording Christians the dignity of their sacred holiday, the Biden administration decided to issue an official White House proclamation declaring Easter Sunday as Transgender Day of Visibility. It’s just the lates...
