North Korea has for decades been known as an unstable nation with an unstable dictator, unwilling to partake in diplomatic talks with other world powers. North Korea’s threats over the past few months have escalated tensions around the globe. In July, t... Read more

    Alongside millions of other Americans, I am reminded each year on September 11th of the tragic events that will forever be remembered in our country’s history and the nearly 3,000 innocent lives we lost that day. My thoughts and prayers will always be with those who were affected by these harrowing events. In the days following, we saw the resilience of our country. We lost moms, dads, uncles, aunts, grandmothers, grandfathers, cousins, mentors, neighbors, and friends. We lost seven Oklahomans. ... Read more

    Serving in our nation’s military is a commitment to represent the United States in times of both war and peace. It is a worthy and honorable sacrifice, not one to be taken lightly. The men and women who serve in our military are loyal to our flag and protect the freedoms granted to all of us. No matter the branch, rank, or role, all of our men and women in uniform play an important part in maintaining our nation’s security and defending our way of life.

    Providing for the common defense is more than just a promise to our nation and military. It is a responsibility Congress has been entrusted with by the U.S. Constitution.

To continue as the world power and force of good that we are known for, we must do more than simply provide for the common defense: we must provide those who defend our Constitution with the tools they require to succeed. Our last president left our military in dis... Read more

    Our nation’s law enforcement officers investigate crime, enforce our laws, and perhaps most importantly, protect our communities. Day after day, law enforcement officers put on their uniforms, leave their families, and go to work prepared to defend those around them from harm.
