  • Fighting the Silent Crisis
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on October 21, 2020 | Preview rr

    We are experiencing an epidemic of violence in our tribal communities: 80 percent of Native men and women experience violence, 34 percent of Native women experience sexual violence in their lifetimes, and murder is the third-leading cause of death for American Indian and Alaska Native women. Native women and girls are also disproportionately likely to become victims of sex trafficking. We don’t even have a full picture of the number of women who go missing each year because the databases that ho... Read more

  • Thank You for the Prayers and Support
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on October 14, 2020 | Preview rr

    Nine months ago, my family was rocked when our son Jim suffered a traumatic brain injury in a wrestling accident. In less than one day, Jim went from being an elite athlete at a high school learning level to a third-grade learning level, losing most of his motor skills, and suffering severe short-term memory loss. We were blessed to be able to get Jim the treatment he needed from the Centre for Neuro Skills in Bakersfield, California. As Jim was learning his motor skills again or how to say cert... Read more

  • Service Academies Recruit the Best and Brightest
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on October 7, 2020 | Preview rr

    As a Member of Congress, I have the honor of nominating students to our country’s prestigious service academies. Attending a service academy is an invaluable experience that shapes young men and women into our next generation of leaders. This year, there has been more interest than ever in applying to the academies. Nominations are available for the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. The service academies prepare young people to ... Read more

  • Our Commitment to America
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on September 30, 2020 | Preview rr

    While Speaker Pelosi and the socialist Left are trying to defund our law enforcement, destroy our economy and dismantle our institutions, Republicans are fighting for our country. We will restore our way of life, rebuild the greatest economy in history, and renew the American Dream. This is our commitment to America. COVID-19 created an unprecedented challenge for our country and changed many things about our everyday lives. We must do all we can to defeat the virus and restore our way of life. ... Read more

  • Rules for Thee, But Not for Speaker Pelosi
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on September 23, 2020 | Preview rr

    Speaker Pelosi and the Radical Left have been dead set on resisting President Trump and anything he stands for at all costs. They have blamed the rioting, violence and hatred in our country on President Trump and Republicans rather than condemning it outright. When “peaceful protestors” were tearing down monuments in Baltimore, Speaker Pelosi said, “people will do what they do.” When discussing foreign interference in our elections, Speaker Pelosi called President Trump and Republicans in Congre...

  • #IAmVanessaGuillén
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on September 17, 2020 | Preview rr

    SPC Vanessa Guillén’s disappearance and horrific murder earlier this year shined a light on the systemic issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault within our military. Her name made headlines across the country, #IAmVanessaGuillén was trending on social media, and her family vowed to bring change to the system in her memory. What happened to Vanessa inspired others to come forward and share their experiences of sexual harassment and assault while serving in the U.S. military. When I heard Va... Read more

  • Every Suicide is Preventable

    Tags: Health Issues, Veterans Issues

    From 2012 to 2016, more than 3,600 Oklahomans died from suicide. In 2018, Oklahoma was ranked tenth in the country in suicide deaths with more Oklahomans dying of suicide than motor vehicle crashes. But it’s not just adults who are affected by suicide. According to a national survey from 2019, one in five adolescent school children in Oklahoma reported seriously thinking about suicide within the prior twelve months and one in nine reported actually attempting to take their own lives. As the fath... Read more

  • Talk About Hypocrisy
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on September 2, 2020 | Preview rr

    Last week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi called President Trump and Republicans in Congress “domestic enemies.” Honestly, I’m not even a little bit surprised she said it. Here are just a few examples of how the radical left feels about President Trump and people who disagree with them: “Our democracy is under siege. People need to start taking to the streets. This is a dictator!” – MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch on 2/2/2018 “If we were in high school, I'd take him [President Trump] behind the gym and be... Read more

  • Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on August 26, 2020 | Preview rr

    The Bible teaches in Matthew 25 to lend a hand to our neighbors as we would Christ: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” Jesus explains: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” As Christians, we are called to give back to the less fortunate and help those in need. During these tough times, neighbors have stepped up to help neighbors just... Read more

  • Don’t Use the Postal Service as a Political Pawn
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on August 19, 2020 | Preview rr

    You may have heard recently the United States Postal Service (USPS) needs more money now or they will permanently shut their doors. That is simply not true. Speaker Pelosi is attempting to scare the American people into believing her baseless conspiracy theory so she can implement her universal mail-in voting scheme. Under this scheme, Pelosi Democrats want to essentially eliminate in-person voting and send every person over the age of 18 a ballot to their home in order to cast their vote, regar... Read more
