URGENT: Democrat senators plan to vote next month on a “background check” gun control bill specifically designed to gain Republican votes. Meanwhile, Republican senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) is reportedly seeking a “compromise” background-check gun control bill, while Joe Biden recently made comments attacking the Second Amendment and proposing additional gun control measures. 

Republicans should never compromise on such blatantly unconstitutional legislation. Even if they succeed in passing a compromise, it would merely be a first step down the slippery slope toward additional changes that infringe on the Second Amendment. Tell your representative and senators to oppose any such compromise!

Ignoring the controversy over critical race theory didn't go so well for the Left. So they tried denying it. That was a bust. Now, they've moved on to a new strategy: digging in and defending it -- and, considering the latest clash over the military, that might be the worst idea of all.

When the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, came to testify on the latest defense budget, a handful of Republicans took the opportunity to put the country's top general on the hot seat over the wildly unpopular move to teach CRT in the ranks -- starting with America's service academies. When conservatives pressed Milley on the complaints they've heard from cadets and others, Milley was openly strident. "I personally find it offensive that [anyone is] accusing the United States military... of being 'woke' or something else because we're studying some theories that are out there," he told Waltz. Our service members need to be "open-minded and widely read," especially, he argued, on issues like racism. "I want to understand white rage -- and I'm white," Milley insisted.

Federal Holidays 2021

As the Federal Government keeps adding new paid holidays (June 19 and next up will be the Democrats' desire to make Election Day a holiday), I note that the paid Federal holidays only apply to a small fraction of workers.

Anyone who works in retail, hospitality, or medical industries knows that holidays are only for other people. Probably less than a sixth of the American workforce can enjoy the government-designated holidays.

Banks and the U.S. Post Office recognize holidays that no one else gets, such as November 11 (Veteran's Day) and the second Monday in October (used to be Columbus Day, now Indigenous People Day, and may also be Italian Heritage Day). Many of the "major" holidays have lost their original significance as Americans spend those days in shopping and entertainment.

Joe Biden Weakens Border

President Joe Biden’s “100-day pause” on enforcing immigration law has turned into a national disaster. Thousands of immigrants continue to stream into the United States via the southern border, yet the Biden administration looks the other way. While cartels are collecting fat paychecks for smuggling people over the border, many of whom are children who have experienced unspeakable violence from their traffickers, the President and Vice President just give a simple finger-wag. Our nation’s economy, security, and individual liberties are in harm’s way unless we can stem the flow.

Before Pride Month wraps up, the ultra-progressive House of Representatives is making moves to include “pride” into legislation and consequently, federal law.

Last week, the Democratic-led chamber attempted to shove H.R. 1443 or the LGBTQ Business Equal Credit Enforcement and Investment Act via suspension or voice vote. When this happens, members do not vote “yes” or “no,” and do not have to leave a record of the vote. In doing so, they are unaccountable to their vote! Thankfully, H.R. 1443 failed suspension. But the legislation is scheduled for a vote this week.

By the time agents got to the truck, the 33 bodies crammed in the back were already passing out from the heat. Shirtless and dehydrated, almost half of the human cargo had to be hospitalized. At a sweltering 106 degrees, without water or air, who knows how many of the smugglers' victims would have survived? "Had our heroic agents not been able to free these trapped undocumented migrants," one Border Patrol chief said, "we could have seen 33 miserable deaths..." And they wouldn't have been the first casualties of a Biden administration living in denial about the immigration crisis. Not by a long shot.

On 6th anniversary of deadly racist church shooting, SC Senator explains how community's response to tragedy is an example to the nation

WASHINGTON -- In an exclusive television interview marking the 6th anniversary of the day Dylann Roof murdered nine people and wounded thirteen others in a racist rampage of an African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, Star Parker speaks with Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), who worked with community leaders to come together in prayer and reconciliation after this horrific incident.

In the days following the tragedy, the family members of those killed expressed their forgiveness towards the killer and the then Governor Nikki Haley and the state legislature removed the confederate flag from the State Capitol.
