  • EPA’s clean power plan prioritizes net-zero over grid reliability
    Coal and natural gas plants provide 60% of the U.S.’ affordable, reliable, and baseload power.

  • How lawfare turned Trump into a superhero
    Face it, the Democrats who threw everything they had at Donald Trump in four courthouses must have been shocked to see him emerging Rambo-like from the smoking wreckage of our justice system. But if they underestimated Trump, it is their own fault.

  • Biden administration’s scientific integrity policies
    It is no secret that the Biden administration has prioritized insulating the administrative state from the will of the people. The goal is placing career officials on equal footing with agency leadership (i.e., political appointees).
  • A solution for our swamped police departments
    The Recruit and Retain Act offers our law enforcement better access to resources that can address staffing issues. My legislation improves the Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS, hiring grant program.
