Marsha Blackburn Report: Protecting Children From Sexual Predators

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C – On Monday, July 8th, 2019, I wrote to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel and urged him to protect our children from being exposed to sexual predators and explicit adult content. Disappearing pictures, a location-sharing feature and limited parental controls make the app a child predator’s dream.

I heard back from Snapchat and am glad to report they are receptive to my concerns. I look forward to meeting with them to discuss how we can protect our children.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Freedoms We Cherish

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Freedom is the one guiding principle that can never steer a lawmaker wrong. At Tennessee Tuesday last week, Senator Lamar Alexander and I discussed what freedom means to us and asked Tennesseans visiting D.C. to give their take. Watch below for a special Independence Day video!

My colleagues and I had a deeply “philosophical” debate about our favorite July 4th treats. I shared with them what all Tennesseans know — or rather, should know: Tennessee has the best barbecue, A hot dog is a sandwich and Abigail Adams is our favorite Founding Mother.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) spoke on the Senate floor about protecting our country’s freedom for Independence Day.

Remarks as Prepared.

Thank you, Mister President.

In 1826, a very old and feeble John Adams received a group of Quincy, Massachusetts town leaders who were seeking his help in planning an anniversary celebration of the Declaration of Independence. They wanted Adams to pen a toast to be read at the event. Imagine their surprise when Adams left them with just two words:
