    President Trump has chosen to put the American people first by enforcing our immigration laws at the southern border. National security should be at the forefront of any domestic policy for the President of the United States. It is the duty of our president to keep the American people safe from harm. This is accomplished by ensuring that the enemies who wish to do us harm are not allowed to enter our country. The current Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen put it pl... Read more

But even though Congress passes a balanced budget, they are not required to keep their s... Read more

    Under President Obama, continued sequestration squashed the chances of military readiness. Air Force planes couldn’t fly. Navy ships couldn’t sail. Army troops couldn’t deploy. Our military didn’t have the resources necessary to be prepared for growing threats. Some veterans saw unbelievably long lines at Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers while others didn’t even have access to the quality health care they have earned and deserve. Thankfully, there’s a new Commander-in-Chief in charge. Presi... Read more

    “While nothing can compare to the heartache caused by the loss of our troops during these wars, no enemy in the field has done more to harm the combat readiness of our military than sequestration,” said Secretary of Defense General Mattis as he testified in front of the House Armed Services Committee this week. In a hearing about our national defense strategy, Mattis made the case to Congress that funding our government by Continuing Resolution is the military’s greatest enemy. Congress’ choice ...
