I’m running for the House speaker to get America back on track

There is tremendous urgency on the part of the American people, certainly on the part of the Republicans. As we see our country facing high prices at the gas pump and for our fuel oil this winter, we also know that grocery store prices, rents, interest rates…hell, the cost of everything keeps to increase. Will Congress respond to this emergency?

I have doubts, and that’s why I threw myself into the arena to run for office. It is high time to turn the page and change the paradigm.

Republicans have promised a massive “red wave” election to sweep away the perpetrators of our national chaos and to usher in a promise to restore national economic and societal normalcy.

The “red wave” has not materialized: the Democrats have retained control of the US Senate and the House of Representatives will have the weakest of the Republican majorities. And, national interest races, like the gubernatorial contest in Arizona, have a cloud over them with a Democrat already declared the winner.

Patriot conservatives wonder how Pennsylvania elected a physically ill man who used to favor murderers over victims of criminal violence. We wonder how a very, very, very skittish, almost inconsistent Democrat who had an obvious conflict of interest could actually defeat a charismatic candidate like Kari Lake in Arizona.

My office is inundated with questions about why Republicans have appointed to the House and elected to the Senate the same great leaders who have failed to stem the flood of mad, leftist politics since President Biden took over. head of this great, historically significant country.

In just two short years, Mr. Biden’s regime has brought us to the brink of all-out war, damaged our international prestige, awakened our military, proclaimed transgender is the new normal, and reduced us to an energy dependence and a dependence on tyrants who extort us, resulting in record gas and oil prices.

Mr. Biden has injected trillions of dollars into our economy, resulting in persistent inflation that Mr. Biden’s own Treasury Secretary says will last for several more years.

Mr. Biden has encouraged more than 5 million illegal border crossings, resulting in more than 107,000 deaths from opioid poisoning, the infiltration of criminal gangs into our communities, more than 100 foreign terrorists and inhumane conditions along our southern border. .

The Biden team has advocated for gender-specific sex education programs starting as early as preschool. They defend racial division and discrimination.

The Biden gang with their accomplices in Congress have imposed significant portions of the “Green New Deal” on the country that will leave us with an inadequate power grid and failed to ensure that we have enough resources, like… food and water. All without actually making America more environmentally friendly.

The question then becomes, what will the Republican majority in the US House of Representatives do to stop or slow down the Biden regime?

And, of course, that begs other questions like whether Republicans will use all the tools in the toolbox to advance an agenda to counter Mr. Biden’s attack on America.

Are we going to leverage the budget to cut 87,000 new IRS agents? Will we be prepared to slow spending bills by insisting on renewing construction of the Keystone XL pipeline?

Are we going to stop the National Defense Authorization Act until we eliminate the myriad of “woke” programs the Democrats have inserted into the military? Are we going to insist on rehiring the men and women of the military driven out because of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s unnecessary vaccination mandate?

Will we uncover the origins of COVID-19 and hold accountable those who imposed anti-science and tyrannical policies on Americans?

It really is time to turn a page. A new direction is needed.

Republicans need a leader who won’t shy away from using surveillance as a tool to slow down Mr. Biden and his cronies. We need a leader who does not view the removal of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as a “political” process, but rather understands that Mr. Mayorkas has committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” that warrant removal.

And, finally, we need a leader who will use every point of leverage to defeat as much of Biden’s agenda as possible and push through as much of our agenda as possible.

It is high time. Success in 2024 depends on what we do now. I pray that my colleagues feel the urgency of Americans and join me in ushering in a new era for Republicans in Congress.
