America’s Birthday On July 4, 1776, a group of Americans approved a document declaring the United States of America free from English rule.  This document was the Declaration of Independence, and we celebrate today this courageous action.

Washington Times op-ed: U.S. Representative Ron Wright:  Stopping China’s travel espionage in its tracks. June 25, 2020 WASHINGTON D.C.   Although many Americans continue to see Russia as the United States’ greatest foreign policy challenge, I believe the Communist Party of China (CCP) poses a far greater threat to our national security in the long run.  Over the last decade, the Chinese government has ramped up its espionage efforts, predatory economic practices, and strategic technology development in an attempt to directly challenge America’s status as a global superpower. The United States has sounded the alarm on China’s Belt and Road Initiative […]

March 20, 2020 WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) spoke on the Senate floor today March 20 in advance of voting for the passage of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. “I think of people like Joe Kenney, who opened Cobblehead’s Bar and Grill in Brownsville, Texas . . .
