  • A Lot to Be Thankful For
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on November 18, 2020 | Preview rr

    Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday and it’s not just because of all the delicious food we eat. I love this time of year because it’s a time to reflect on everything we have to be thankful for and the many gifts the Lord has bestowed upon us. 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, my family included. The pandemic has instilled fear in the hearts of many Americans. A contentious election has made our country feel more divided than ever. Despite the fear and uncertainty in our liv... Read more

  • Thank a Veteran and Listen to Their Story
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on November 11, 2020 | Preview rr

    Veterans Day is a time to remember, honor, and celebrate the men and women who have served in our military. It’s a day where we should tell their stories, remember their sacrifice, and celebrate their unwavering commitment to our country. Every veteran has a story and one of the ways we keep those stories alive is through memorials. There are thousands of veterans’ memorials across our country and each one has a different meaning. Last Saturday, a new memorial to honor Purple Heart recipients wa... Read more

  • Love the People, Love the Call
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on November 5, 2020 | Preview rr

    The United States of America is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world where we choose our leaders and the direction we want our country to go every election. Our vote is our voice and it counts. This election has been more polarizing than any other previous election and has further divided our country. No matter what the outcome is, half of the country will be upset and disappointed. But we cannot forget that at... Read more

  • Welcome to the Supreme Court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on October 28, 2020 | Preview rr

    This was a historic week for our country. Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court of the United States, making her the third justice appointed by President Trump. Justice Barrett is exceptionally well-qualified and a great choice to serve on the highest court in the land. She is dedicated to upholding the Constitution as written, not legislating from the bench, and protecting our fundamental rights. She is also the first mother of school-aged children to serve on the court, ... Read more

  • 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
