HUDSON: My commitment to you

HUDSON: My commitment to you

Sunday is Gold Star Mother’s and Family Day, where we honor the mothers, fathers, siblings, and all other family members of the brave U.S. servicemembers who lost their lives in the line of duty.

One way to honor them is to live a life worthy of their sacrifice. We must also make sure we each do our part to keep this nation free, safe, and strong. Unfortunately, America’s freedom, safety, and…

HUDSON: A commitment to America

“For we are given power not to advance our own purposes, nor to make a great show in the world, nor a name. There is but one just use of power, and it is to serve people.” This quote from former President George H.W.

KRUEGER: The Cobra Effect

It seems like Democrat leaders are lacking common sense and an understanding of history.   What President Joe Biden, his Democrat minions, and his media lapdogs have instead is a massive spending agenda masked in Orwellian newspeak.  They blithely and disingenuously refer to their $737 billion prodigal plan as an Inflation Reduction Act, their $ 2.2 trillion spending spree as Build Back Better, and their $350 billion spendthrift scheme as the American Recovery Act.  According to economic experts at the Penn Wharton Business School, the Inflation Reduction Act will have little to no effect on inflation.  The Congressional Budget Office…

Jordan’s Republican rival, current Sen. Bobby Hanig, had filed the candidate protest against Jordan, contending that…
