Donald Trump Acquitted Again

Yesterday's acquittal of Donald J. Trump was a victory for the Constitution and another defeat for those engaged in the permanent effort to destroy him before, during, and now, after four years of historic, successful policies that benefited the American people.

This impeachment trial never should have even taken place. It was wholly unconstitutional and somehow even more devoid of due process than the first ridiculous impeachment trial in 2020. Democrats have once again wasted our tax dollars and time on a sham impeachment because they hate Donald Trump, and to say this trial was pushed by anything other than that hate is a complete falsehood. They tried to take him down before he was sworn in as president and, along with their partners in the media and Big Tech, have now made it their top priority to do the same after he has left office.

The Left’s relentless obsession with destroying this man continues to divide our nation, but they clearly do not care. It was shameful to see such a sacred democratic process used as a political weapon, and especially to see a handful of Republican Senators and Representatives who went along with it after four years of taking credit for the accomplishments of President Trump and the conservative movement.

It is past time for Democrats to put an end to their divisive infatuation with ruining Donald Trump’s life and finally allow Congress to get back to working for the American people.
Take It Down
The barbed wire fencing surrounding the U.S. Capitol needs to come down. It’s unbelievable – Democrats will scream that the southern border wall is “immoral,” but have gladly hidden behind their own wall for more than a month.

Speaker Pelosi – TAKE IT DOWN.

America's Energy Independence Is at Risk
Biden's foolish policies will cripple our energy independence and destroy the livelihoods of thousands.

Biden Is Ignoring His Most Important Duty
Joe Biden is ignoring his most important duty: to keep us safe and secure.

Abandoning our borders when CBP’s apprehending more than 3,000 illegal aliens per day is mindless. There’s no room for politics when it comes to our borders.

The Left's Willing to Spend Nearly $500 Million to Keep the Capitol Fortified
The Left's willing to spend nearly $500 million of your tax dollars to keep the Capitol fortified for NO reason, yet refused to send the National Guard into Democrat cities under siege by Antifa and radical anarchists to help restore law and order last year.

 The Suspension on Biden's Deportation Moratorium Plan Has Been Extended
 Not deporting criminal illegal aliens puts us in greater danger, burdens our border agents, and makes a mockery of our entire immigration system. Why would Biden not follow the law?

I’m proud that Texas is standing up against this ignorant moratorium.

The CBO Confirms a $15 Minimum Wage Will Kill 1.4 Million Jobs 
The CBO has confirmed: 1.4 million jobs will be lost if the minimum wage is raised to $15. Instead of reopening the economy and helping Americans, Biden seems intent on devastating our small businesses and crippling our recovery efforts.

Rejoining the Failed Iran Nuclear Deal Would Be a Grave Mistake
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or Iran Nuclear Deal was a weak and failed agreement from the start. Iran never intended to keep their word, and Trump was right to pull us out. Rejoining this deal as is would be a grave mistake.

 The Party of Science Ignores the Science
Democrats... the party of science? OR RATHER the party that picks and chooses which science to believe?

Put our students first – reopen the schools.
 America Remembers
 Good try, Congresswoman Waters, but we remember...

"... if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station ... you push back on them. The people are going to turn on them ... they’re going to absolutely harass them."

Babin Selected Ranking Member of the House Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee
It is an incredible honor to continue serving as the lead Republican on the House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics.
Securing America’s place as the leader of spacefaring nations proves more critical by the day. Throughout history, the United States has repeatedly demonstrated to the world its remarkable imagination, perseverance, and technical capabilities. I’m proud to serve as a prominent voice in driving our country toward future accomplishments in space by building upon our past success.

Representing NASA’s Johnson Space Center over the past five years has been a tremendous source of pride. I will continue to be a strong advocate for this vital NASA center and will do everything in my power to ensure it remains the heart of America’s space program. Wherever our nation ventures in space, I want to make certain the first word back to Earth is always "Houston." I look forward to working with and supporting the brilliant men and women in our space industry as we push scientific discovery and giant leaps in human exploration during the 117th Congress.

Biden Foolishly Rescinds Trump's National Emergency Declaration at the U.S.-Mexico Border
Biden’s causing instability and chaos at the border. Believe me, another border crisis is coming, and it’s coming soon.

Arrests at the southern border in January were the highest they’ve been in a decade.

This decision will have dire consequences for America.

Biden Withdraws Trump Rule on Confucius Institutes 
Confucius Institutes should not be allowed to spew propaganda for the Chinese Communist Party in America’s classrooms.

Biden disagrees.

This Administration should be protecting our students from the overreach of this dangerous regime, but they’re not.

How Can Anyone Not See the Hypocrisy?
 How can anyone not see the hypocrisy? And where’s the media on this? Silent, of course.

Look at these words. Read them. These are the words of Democrats – are they also “treasonous” and “seditious”?
