Unfortunately, our legislative process in Congress is broken and I submit it must be changed by going back to the basics. With the 117th Congress coming to a close and with a shift in majority parties, now is the appropriate time to make changes to the Rules of the House.

Thanksgiving is a time when many guests gather around the dinner table and feast as part of the day’s activities. Another regular Thanksgiving guest, however, is not around the table but atop it, and not at his own choice: the turkey. The turkey is as much a part of the Thanksgiving story as we know it today as Berkeley Plantation and the Pilgrims of Massachusetts, and indeed it is part…

At its best, scientific research seeks to explore the universe around us, find ways to understand it better, and harness its power for the benefit of humanity.

With great power comes great responsibility. It’s an adage that cuts to the heart of how we believe influential people or organizations ought to behave. Even if popularized by the Spider-Man comic books and movies, its merits are widely recognizable even for those who do not consider themselves fans of superhero stories.

In less than two short years, unified Democrat control of the Federal Government has diminished our country in ways that would astound even a pessimist. Inflation has risen to levels not seen in forty years. Gas prices hit record highs earlier this year.
