Remember when the Biden administration said they weren't funding crack pipes, and the media believed them?

The attacks on Fox News by Chuck Schumer are not only completely false, but are an attempt to shut down a conservative-leaning network.
The Waukesha mass murderer, the NYC subway shooter, the Congressional baseball practice shooter—Did Chuck Schumer blame left-wing media? Of course not. This is just politics.

It’s more urgent than ever that we decouple from China. We can’t depend on the whims of communist Chinese officials when it comes to Americans’ health and safety. washingtonpost.com/business/2022/…
Shortages in the medical supply chain are a matter of life and death, and we cannot rely on China for our citizens’ survival. I’ve introduced two bills to curb our reliance on the Chinese Communist Party and bolster pharmaceutical production in the United States.

This week, Senate Democrats are pushing a radical bill that would legalize abortion nationwide, for any reason, at any point until birth.
Their bill is so grotesque it can't even pass the Democrat-controlled Senate. The vast majority of Americans reject it, as well.
When I say Democrats want abortion on demand for nearly any reason, it’s not exaggeration. Chuck Schumer’s bill would even allow eugenic abortions of babies who are the “wrong” sex or who have been diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

Along with protecting our liberty and preserving it for our posterity, our founders also understood that protecting our people from violence, crime, and the breakdown of law and order is another chief responsibility for the government.
Here, too, Democrats have abandoned the American people—especially our most vulnerable citizens.

Countless Americans are braving the cold today to March for Life. We pray for the marchers and for their courageous witness on behalf of the unborn.
The right to life is the first, fundamental human right recognized in the Declaration of Independence. Right now, Americans are proclaiming this truth: that the right to life begins with the unborn.

If the Pentagon wants to find extremists they should look to the Chinese Communist Party and Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
After months of fanatical searching, the Biden administration has found less than 100 “extremists” out of two million service members. They should be ashamed of this politically motivated witch hunt.

Democrats can’t take a hint. They’ve insisted on adding more policies to their wasteful spending bill that would make it even worse for Americans. Let us count the ways.
The bill includes amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. This will encourage more people to break into the country and force Americans to compete with illegal immigrants for jobs.

Democrats will trade American jobs and wages for amnesty. They don’t mind that it drains welfare programs and they certainly don't care that it will encourage even more illegal immigration. Democrats want amnesty at any cost. foxnews.com/politics/dems-…
Granting amnesty in any form hurts America’s working class. It forces Americans—especially recent legal immigrants—to compete with millions of illegal immigrants for lower wages. Democrats like Senator Bernie Sanders used to understand this. What happened, @SenSanders?

This week, the Biden administration returned to a policy of appeasing China, a strategy that’s failed for decades.
1) Joe Biden refused to even say the word “China” during his United Nations speech.
2) His Commerce Secretary talked about the need to strengthen business ties with China and welcome Chinese investment.
3) The administration is surrendering to China’s hostage diplomacy by dropping criminal charges against a Huawei executive currently held in Canada.

The $3.5 trillion reckless taxing and spending bill Democrats are trying to ram through Congress would accelerate inflation at the expense of the American taxpayer.
This bill includes tax hikes for family farms and small businesses. Democrats want to create a double death tax that will force even more farms and businesses to be sold off to corporate conglomerates so the families can pay Uncle Sam.

The Senate approved my amendment to prohibit federal funds from being used to indoctrinate kids with Critical Race Theory. All but one Democrat voted against it.
The left claims CRT isn’t taught in our schools. That’s a lie. Head Start, which serves kids as young as 3-5 years old, is telling its teachers that no child is “too young to talk about race” and that “by 30 months, most children use race to choose playmates.”

The root cause of the Biden Border Crisis is at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. We didn’t have a border crisis until the Biden-Harris administration created one.
President Biden and Vice President Harris slashed deportations, stopped construction of the border wall, and promised amnesty for illegals. They have also gutted successful, common sense policies for political gain.

Catherine Lhamon, President Biden’s nominee to enforce Civil Rights at the Department of Education, is unfit for any role in the federal government. She refuses to condemn racial segregation and will push Critical Race Theory on America's children. aei.org/education/bide…
Lhamon was asked *sixteen times* if discriminatory practices of Critical Race Theory violate civil-rights law. She refused to answer every time.

The common-sense case for a lab leak is the same as it was in January 2020, when I first mentioned the possibility.
Isn’t it strange that this once-in-a-century bat coronavirus pandemic just happened to emerge within a few miles of China’s biggest laboratory researching bat coronaviruses?
Shouldn’t we at least look at that lab?

This week—during Police Week—Senate Democrats will try to advance Kristen Clarke’s nomination to be a top-ranking official at the Department of Justice. Clarke is a radical, anti-law-enforcement nominee, who has openly called to “defund the police." newsweek.com/i-prosecuted-p…
Clarke must explain why she claimed that she “did not have a speaking or other substantive role” in a conference celebrating cop-killers, when the speakers at the conference thanked her by name for organizing it and moderating a panel. freebeacon.com/biden-administ…

In 2020, border crossings dropped by 53%. Since President Biden’s election, the number of illegal aliens crossing the border has surged to over 100,000 a month—a nearly 40 percent increase. foxnews.com/politics/borde…
The illegal immigrants at the border are not fleeing persecution, they are economic migrants here for jobs. We should be prioritizing the more than 10 million jobless Americans in our country, not bringing in a flood of additional workers from abroad.

Critical Race Theory teaches that race is a person’s defining characteristic & that America is an evil, oppressive place.
That idea may be fashionable on left-wing college campuses, but it has no place in our military.
But the military has begun promoting Critical Race Theory to the troops, recommending books by far-left activists like Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo.
Last week, I asked Biden DOJ nominee Vanita Gupta about her statements that every single American and every American institution is racist.
She refused to answer against which races she harbors bias.
I asked whether she thinks Americans should face discrimination based on their skin color. She refused to answer, saying only that she would "abide by the law."

President Biden’s border policies aren't just bad for Americans. They're bad for the migrants who make the dangerous, expensive journey to get here. The vast majority are not eligible for refugee status or asylum.
Asylum is meant to protect those facing systematic persecution on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion or political views—not people who want better jobs. The governments of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala do not systematically persecute.

The Biden administration today refused to acknowledge that there is a crisis at our southern border—a crisis caused by its policies.
But there is in fact a crisis, and denial won’t make the situation go away.
Last month, nearly 100,000 aliens illegally crossed the border – triple the number from last February, and a more than 100% increase since the summer.
The number of illegal aliens crossing the border has increased every month since Joe Biden was elected.
