A Nation Without Borders

A nation without borders is not a nation. But ever since President Biden took office, he and the radical Left have worked to enact the most sweeping parts of their immigration policies, putting America on track to become the only nation in the world where anyone ­can freely cross the border. The consequences of their open-border agenda are devastating. In a matter of just 18 months, our southern border has descended into complete chaos. Regular migrant caravans are crossing the Rio Grande, guide...

The Definition of a Recession

Since President Biden took the oath of office, Washington Democrats have embarked on a massive spending spree that has driven up government spending by an additional $9 trillion.

VIDEO: Smith Fights to Hold President Biden Accountable for Driving Gas Prices, Inflation to Record Highs

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, U.S. Representative Jason Smith (Mo.) spoke on the House floor to slam President Biden for refusing to take responsibility for creating the worst inflation crisis in 40- years and driving gas prices to an all-time national high.

In addition, Smith blas...

The Devastating Consequences of One-Party Democrat Rule

A recent poll found that a whopping 85 percent of Americans believe our nation is on the wrong track. It’s not at all surprising when you consider just how disastrous one-party Democrat rule of Washington has been for our nation. Beyond the record inflation, unaffordable gas, and empty grocery shelves, the radical Left has taken hold of their party – and they’re threatening violence to help force through the most destructive parts of their agenda. Since the draft of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s ...

The repo...

Biden’s Inflation Blame Game

President Biden’s inflation crisis is sending our nation hurtling towards a recession, turning the American Dream into an unaffordable nightmare for hardworking Americans. Last week, families learned that inflation has gotten even worse and is now at a 40-year high of 9.1 percent in just the last 12 months, and a massive 13.8 percent since the start of Joe Biden’s presidency. This is completely unacceptable! Despite their efforts to mislead Americans, Washington Democrats’ out-of-control spendin...
