  • Finances, freedom and Main Street USA

    With each day that passes, China inches closer to waging war on Taiwan. Being thousands of miles away, surely you won’t feel the impact a foreign war has on the economy, right? Wrong. Not only is America unprepared for the catastrophic economic impact of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan but it would present a drastically more intense challenge given how deeply our counties’ economies are integrated. 
  • Fairness, integrity and freedom
    The SBA’s core mission is to support and empower American small businesses, everything from bakeries to bike shops. Last time I checked, the Biden re-election campaign does not fall into the category of a “Small Business.”
  • China's war on Taiwan and our economy
    This week, I introduced the Fortifying U.S. Markets from Chinese Military Aggression Act. This bill directs the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) at the Treasury Department to establish an advisory committee to analyze, study and report on market implications and vulnerabilities related to Chinese military aggression with the goal of establishing open lines of communications between policy makers, government agencies, and capital markets. 
  • Retire Biden’s inflation
    With Bidenonmics causing outrageous inflation rates and skyrocketing the price of living by $11,400 per year, how are people supposed to take their hard-earned money and invest it into their retirement or even consider retiring when the cost of living has forced them to live paycheck to paycheck?
  • Wishing all a blessed and very happy Easter
    Mathew 28:6: “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” Easter is upon us. Easter marks the most sacred time of the year for Christians, a time we take for self-reflection, devotion and dedication to our faith.
  • Demanding due diligence on new debit card rules
    Why would we, as a capitalist, free-market society, want the government to dictate the terms of private market contracts and negotiations?
  • Fighting against human trafficking
    January is Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Of all the issues we face as a nation and society, the kidnapping and enslaving of our fellow Americans is the gravest. Like the fentanyl crisis, it’s a phantom evil assaulting our communities. We might not notice it, but heinous crimes could be underway around us at any time.
  • The year ahead in Congress
    Recently, I announced my retirement from Congress. I’ll turn 72 years old this year, and believe it or not, I have an identity outside the halls of power. I might be “Congressman” in D.C., but back in St. Elizabeth, Missouri, I’m simply “Grandpa.” It’s one of the best titles I’ve ever had next to “Dad” and the litany of labels my wife Jackie has invented over the years.
  • Small businesses, it’s time to prepare for new FinCEN law
    On Jan. 1, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) issued a new regulation that affects every small business in this country, but only a small percentage of them seem to know about it. If you or your friends work for or own a small business, please share this information.
  • New year, same focus
    As we look at making cuts, I’ll work to ensure we aren’t giving anyone a free pass to leech off their neighbors’ taxes. Americans should be productive members of society, and we must instill values of hard work in younger generations, as they’ll soon lead the nation. 
  • No more tax dollars for corrupt climate groups
    I’m happy to say Sen. Eric Schmitt introduced a companion to my bill in the U.S. Senate. As elected representatives, we owe the American people sound decision-making, especially when it comes to spending. There should be a reasonable return on investment, whether it’s supporting our farmers or protecting our allies.
  • Biden administration under fire after Pentagon requests $114 million for diversity, equity
    “Americans are currently being held hostage – and global conflict surrounds us – yet the Pentagon has the gall to ask for $114 million for DEI,” said Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-Mo. 
  • My plan to curb Iran's terror financing
    Terrorists are unreasonable, barbaric monsters in search of destruction. As it has throughout history, the United States must remain their worst nightmare. Americans stand with freedom and the people of Israel during their darkest hour. With responsible, measured action, we can help our ally stamp out Hamas once and for all.  
  • National Police Week 2023
    This week, my fellow Missouri representative, Congresswoman Cori Bush was one of two members in the entire House who voted against honoring police officers killed in the line of duty. This is someone who refuses to honor the memories of police officers who laid down their lives for their country, while she has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on private security for herself. The hypocrisy and lack of respect for law enforcement is staggering.
