The Constitution, in its list of federal powers, includes the ability “to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes.”
My friends Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, opined on Thursday that the time has come for a new person to serve as attorney general.
I disagree with their opinion. I believe Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the right man in the right place at the right time to restore respect in America for the Rule of Law.
The Day the Berlin Wall Came Crumbling Down
What were you watching on Thursday, November 9, 1989?
You probably hear it said every New Year’s Eve. As the clock strikes midnight, and the New Year is ushered in, someone will offer a New Year’s Resolution punctuated with the statement “out with the old, in with the new!”
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson articulated fundamental truths upon which the United States of America was founded.

It has been reported that Speaker Paul Ryan has formed a “task force” to develop legislation to save the unconstitutional Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).
News outlets are reporting that President Donald Trump is considering ending DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). The unconstitutional Obama-era executive action granted amnesty and work permits to approximately 800,000 illegal aliens on the condition they attest they illegally entered the United States as minors.

“From This Root, Justice Will Grow”
For years, people have heard me say that “I want to rip Obamacare out by the roots as if such act had never been enacted.”
The House of Representatives will decide the destiny of the Republican Party and the nation when we select a new speaker.
As the people’s House, it is our duty to be the voice of the American people, and in the last few years, the voters have not been heard. Our next speaker needs to offer a bold vision that inspires our conference as well as the American people we represent.
