In times of crisis, Americans look to the president of the United States for leadership. If we do so now, however, we would only see a president and administration who have been neglectful of solving the real problems facing our country or actively made them worse. No president has governed over a more severe crisis at the southern border. April 2022 saw the most illegal crossings in one month on ...

If Congress was graded on a report card, one of the subjects it would be graded on is oversight. Ensuring the faithful execution of the laws and rooting out mismanagement by the executive branch are core constitutional obligations of the House and Senate.

Over the past few months, I have heard clear opposition from many residents of Virginia’s Ninth Congressional District to President Biden’s coronavirus vaccine mandates. I share this opposition and have expressed it before in this column. I am vaccinated, and I urge others to consider getting vaccinated themselves if they are not already, but I believe such a decision should be left to an individu...
