  • After Joe Biden’s disastrous retreat from Afghanistan, the country has fallen to a medieval band of degenerate savages known as the Taliban. Despite its depraved behavior, you won’t hear anyone in our government call the Taliban what it is: a terrorist organization. Instead, Secretary of State Blinken has said, for example, that the Taliban, “does not meet the test of inclusivity.” It’s as if the Biden administration is more concerned that the Taliban is led by men than that it’s led by...

  • Thank you, it’s an honor to address the National Right to Life Committee, the nation’s oldest pro-life organization and a true beacon of moral clarity.I’d like to extend special recognition and thanks to Carol for inviting me to speak this evening. I’d also like to recognize my home state’s chapter—where are you out there? There you are!, Arkansas Right to Life has helped turn Arkansas into one of the most pro-life states in the union.We regret that our legendary leader, Rose Mimms, couldn’t be... Read More
  • Thank you, Reihan, for those kind words and for the invitation to speak today. I’m also grateful to the Manhattan Institute and National Press Club for hosting.And I would like to recognize Paul Singer and Roger Hertog, who generously support the Manhattan Institute’s important work.Five years ago, I spoke at some length on the subject of crime and violence in our streets. At the time, our nation was in the grips of the Obama crime wave of 2015-2016. We experienced the steepest two-year increase... Read More
  • Huawei is no ordinary phone company. It is the eyes and ears of the Chinese Communist Party.According to the Department of Defense, Huawei is a “Communist Chinese military company” that’s controlled by the People’s Liberation Army.A former officer of the PLA founded Huawei. Huawei is built upon stolen technology from American companies like Cisco. And it’s engaged in espionage all around the world on behalf of its masters in Beijing.Which raises some important questions. Should American citizens... Read More
  • The Democrats’ want to call their voting bill the For the People Act, but I would suggest you not be fooled by the marketing—this bill has nothing to offer for the people of our country. The so-called For the People Act is in fact a partisan takeover of our elections that seeks a government “of the Democrats, by the Democrats, and for the Democrats.” So, it’s no wonder it’s their very top priority and it’s literally the first bill filed in both the House and the Senate this year.If this bill...

  • Eight short months from now, the greatest athletes in the world will gather together and compete in the 24th Olympic Winter Games. Usually, Americans await this awe-inspiring event with enthusiasm and excitement. This year, though, we await it with apprehension and, frankly, disgust.That’s because next year’s Games will be held in the People’s Republic of China, a communist nation that enslaves workers, puts women and children in concentration camps, sterilizes women, and unleashed a...

  • As the disasters pile up left and right in these early months of the Biden presidency, one might be called “The Tale of Three Pipelines.” Three separate pipelines, three separate challenges, united by one consistent theme: in each case, the foolishness and weakness of the Biden administration has led to disaster. First, President Biden began his administration by killing the Keystone XL pipeline on day one. This decision was a gift to the radical environmentalist non-profit industry in... Read More
  • Over the weekend, Israeli fighter jets demolished an office building in Gaza that housed members of Hamas, the terrorist organization dedicated to wiping Israel and its people off the map, and actively pursuing that mission as we speak by firing thousands of rockets and missiles indiscriminately into Israeli cities.To minimize civilian casualties, the Israeli Defense Forces gave persons in the building one hour of advance notice that the building was coming down. Everyone evacuated... Read More
  • Just four short months ago, hopes were running high in the Middle East. ISIS was wiped off the map, the Iranian regime and its terrorist proxies were in retreat, Israel was forging historic peace deals with its neighbors. All along the way, the United States was instrumental to this progress. But in just a few months, the Biden administration has dashed those hopes with a policy of weakness and appeasement. The forces of terror are again on the march. Pillars of smoke and fire are rising from... Read More
  • Our nation is in the midst of a historic crime wave that’s affecting Americans of every background and walk of life.This surge in violence includes a shocking rise in hate crimes against our fellow citizens of Asian descent. Last year, the total number of hate crimes in America’s largest cities dropped by seven percent—but they surged by nearly 150 percent against Asian-Americans.Often these hate crimes target the elderly and the frail—people who can’t even fight back against their vicious...

  • Vanita Gupta is President Biden’s nominee to be Associate Attorney General. She is unfit for that role. She is unfit because of her radical view that every single American citizen and every single institution in the United States is inherently racist. She is unfit because she lacks the temperament to do the job, as evidenced by her relentless attacks on the integrity and character of judges and Senators alike, seemingly anytime she has disagreed with them. And she is certainly unfit based on her... Read More
  • The Senate is considering the nomination of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to be Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Without question, the Senate should reject this nomination.In the midst of this pandemic, America deserves a health secretary who is solely focused on getting shots in arms, getting kids back to school, and getting parents back to work. But that’s not Mr. Becerra. Over his long career in politics, his primary passion has been ramming through a... Read More
  • Today the Senate will vote on Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to be Attorney General of the United States. I will oppose this nomination.I was open-minded, at first, about Judge Garland’s nomination. He has long had a reputation as a fair-minded Judge. But since being nominated, my confidence in Judge Garland has been undermined. First by his evasive, haughty refusal to answer some of the most basic questions we would expect from an Attorney General. The kind of evasion he... Read More
  • Most Americans know that there are two sexes, male and female, and that sex is rooted in science. Most Americans also know that we ought to treat all people—including those who feel conflicted about their gender—with respect and dignity, without sacrificing the truth in the process.These beliefs though are now under attack from some of the most powerful corporations in the history of the world. Just a few weeks ago, while House Democrats were passing their far-left Equality Act and the left-wing... Read More
  • Thank you, Roger, for that kind introduction. I’d like to speak today about the greatest foreign-policy challenge America faces: our new Cold War with China. There’s no better group to address on this topic than the Reagan Foundation, which bears the name of the president who won America’s first Cold War—without firing a shot, just as we want to win this new Cold War.Today I’m releasing a report, titled “Beat China: Targeted Decoupling and the Economic Long War.” This document details a strategy...

  • On Wednesday, just moments after Joe Biden took office, China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs sanctioned 28 members of the outgoing administration, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, and UN Ambassador Kelly Craft.According to Chinese state media, these Trump officials were guilty of ‘crazy moves which gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs.’ Those ‘crazy’ moves include, presumably, condemning the Chinese Communist Party’s genocidal campaign...

    Cotton Honors Joe Morgan

    Arkansas is known as the Natural State, and few have been more dedicated to preserving Arkansas in all of its natural beauty than Joe Morgan. Joe passed away last month at age 76.  Joe was a life-long Arkansan. He studied at Little Rock University—now the University of Arkansas-Little Rock—and he worked for many years as a car dealer for great American companies, like General Motors and Chevrolet. He also served on the Arkansas Motor Vehicle Commission. But Joe will... Read More
  • I am very pleased the Senate has just passed the ALS Disability Insurance Access Act, 96-1, a bill that will bring relief to many Americans suffering from a terrible disease. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease. People with ALS tragically lose the ability to control their muscles, leading to paralysis and ultimately death. There is no cure. Many are familiar with ALS because of the baseball legend who succumbed to it at the height of his career, Lou Gehrig. Others know Lou... Read More

    Our Pilgrim Fathers

    A great American anniversary is upon us.  Four hundred years ago this Saturday, a battered old ship called the Mayflower arrived in the waters off Cape Cod.  The passengers aboard the Mayflower are, in many ways, our first founders.  Daniel Webster called them “Our Pilgrim Fathers” on the two hundredth anniversary of this occasion.  Regrettably, we haven’t heard much about this anniversary of the Mayflower; I suppose the Pilgrims have fallen out of...

    The Danger of Mob Rule

    “I hope I am over wary; but if I am not, there is, even now, something of ill omen, amongst us. I mean the increasing disregard for law which pervades the country; the growing disposition to substitute the wild and furious passions, in lieu of the sober judgment of courts; and the worse than savage mobs, for the executive ministers of justice. This disposition is awfully fearful in any community; and that it now exists in ours, though grating to our feelings to admit, it would be a... Read More
