The 50th Anniversary of Title IX

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

This week marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. For the past five decades, Title IX has protected women in educational programs from discrimination on the basis of sex. The law applies to all educational programs that receive federal funding and covers admissions, financial aid, sexual harassment, athletic facilities, and much more. Since its implementation, t...

Biden’s Open Invitation to the World

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

President Biden’s open border polices have incentivized lawlessness and created chaos, not only in border communities, but also across the entire United States. Despite the record-breaking increase of migrant encounters and ever-growing threat to American lives, President Biden continues to turn his back on this crisis. There have been over 2.75 million migrant encounters at our southern border si...

Illuminating the Path of Life for All Expectant Mothers

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

As a father of six amazing children, three of whom came into our lives through the blessing of adoption, I could not be more proud to represent and reside in the most pro-life state in the nation. I applaud Governor Stitt and all of those who fought for us to get here. While we celebrate this victory, it’s impossible not to acknowledge the tragic reality of what lies on the other side of this deba...

America Runs on Diesel

Tags: Energy

President Biden finally admitted to what hard-working Americans have known for months: record high gas prices are a direct result of his Green New Deal agenda. What the president referred to as an “incredible transition” away from fossil fuels is his direct attack on our domestic energy production that has resulted in record high gas prices and hundreds of dollars’ worth of additional energy costs...

Land of Free, Because of the Brave

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer for Oklahomans. Many celebrate with cookouts, trips to the lake or river, and time spent with loved ones. While we are celebrating, we must not forget the true reason for Memorial Day and the families who have lost loved ones. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance in which we reflect and pay our deepest respects to the fallen heroes who have given their li...

The Price of Inflation

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Hard-working Americans don’t need the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) to confirm what they have been experiencing for months: pain. Even at face value, however, the CPI remains above eight percent, inflation remains at a 40-year record high, and Americans are left shouldering the burden. Shelves across the country are bare, gas prices are at an all-time high, and small businesses are struggling ...

Honoring our Officers during National Police Week

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

As National Police Week is here, we recognize the brave men and women of our law enforcement and pay special tribute to officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. I am immensely grateful for our local, state, and federal law enforcement, and want to remind them that we proudly Back the Blue, despite constant calls from the left to defund the police. Every day, our men and women of law...

Supporting Our Foster Youth

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Please join me in recognizing May as National Foster Care Awareness Month. As a father of six, three of which came into our lives through the blessing of adoption, this is an issue that is deeply close to my family’s heart. I am committed to ensuring every child has a safe, supportive, and forever family. There are over 400,000 children in the United States who need a loving home. Nearly 7,500 of ...

Continuing our Commitment to our Veterans

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

The Department of Veterans Affairs’ move to close the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center in Muskogee is an unacceptable blow to our veterans who risked their lives to defend our freedoms. It’s a dereliction of duty for this administration to leave our rural veterans behind. The Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center serves more than 52,000 veterans across 25 counties in Eastern Oklahoma. The medic...

The Oklahoma Standard is as Strong as Ever

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Today, Oklahomans join together in remembering the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing and the loved ones left behind on that horrible day 27 years ago. As we mourn the worst act of homegrown terrorism in our country’s history, we also reflect on a term coined on April 19, 1995: the Oklahoma Standard. In the face of tragedy, Oklahomans went out of their way to share what they had to help those in...
