🧵1/4 I came away from the classified briefing with more questions than answers. President Joe Biden's lack of transparency is concerning and deeply disturbing.
2/4 Following the briefing, it is unclear as to whether these incidents are a series of extremely significant events being downplayed by the White House, or inconsequential incidents being exaggerated and blown out of proportion.
3/4 It is baffling and frustrating that these “objects” had to be taken down with fighter jets and missiles, yet we still do not know anything about them and still don’t have them in our possession.
4/4 We must find out the truth of what is happening and have it explained to the American people. Without this crucial information, we cannot assess what safety and security threats we might be facing.

🧵 1/7 President Biden's silence in the face of multiple aircraft violating US airspace is inexcusable.
2/7 His staff and cabinet making light of the situation by joking about aliens and balloons does nothing more than trivialize the gravity of the situation and potentially undermine our national security.
3/7 By failing to address these aircraft incursions, President Biden appears to be shirking his responsibility to protect and defend our nation as outlined in Article II of the US Constitution.

As the negotiations surrounding the 4155-page spending package have played out, Democrats have become the puppets of the president.
Late last evening, the White House descended on the Capitol to “team up” with Democrat deal makers to deliver a lie to the American people.
An amendment by Sens Sinema & Tester is designed to ensure a porous border. A wolf in sheep's clothing to mislead the American people to believe Dems are doing something to secure our borders. It merely provides them cover to vote against my extension of Title 42 protections.

1/4 For almost a year, Utahns have been fighting through terrible conditions to work, to find work, to serve their neighbors and communities as best they can. Congress has failed to meet their standard of courage and duty.
2/4 This COVID relief bill - like the one Senate Democrats blocked for months out of pure partisan politics - contains some much-needed items to help Utahns recover including more funding for faster vaccine deployment and an expanded charitable deduction.
3/4 Unfortunately, the COVID relief bill has been packaged together w/ a much larger government spending bill that is bursting at the seams with special interest handouts slipped into to 5,593 pages of legislative text in the dark of night. No one who voted for this bill read it.

1/4 This is the spending bill under consideration in Congress today. I received it just moments ago, and will likely be asked to vote on it late tonight. It’s 5,593 pages long. I know there are some good things in it. I’m equally confident that there are bad things in it.
2/4 Here’s the really sad thing: we’re being told that there will be no opportunity to amend or improve it. As a result, nearly every member of Congress — House and Senate, Democrat or Republican — will have been excluded from the process of developing this bill,
3/4 which will cost American taxpayers trillions of dollars. This process, by which members of Congress are asked to defer blindly to legislation negotiated entirely in secret by four of their colleagues, must come to an end.

The Jones Act turns 100 years old tomorrow, but this anniversary deserves little celebration. 1/4
The Jones Act, which restricts shipping between U.S. ports to vessels that are U.S. built, flagged, and crewed, makes it difficult for the U.S. to serve certain domestic markets with U.S.-produced natural gas. 2/4
In fact, the U.S. currently has no Jones Act compliant ships to transport natural gas! As a result, certain parts of our nation are forced to import natural gas and jet fuel from geopolitical adversaries like Russia and Venezuela. 3/4

If this is a joke, it’s not funny.
If it’s not a joke, we’ve got much bigger problems.
