Marsha Blackburn Report: Leading Relief Efforts After Tennessee Storms

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Confucius Institutes provide communist China with leverage to discreetly influence what college students are taught about topics like Hong Kong and Tiananmen Square and impede freedom of speech on campus. We cannot allow students to be brainwashed by revisionist history.

That’s why I sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) Secretary Miguel Cardona to push for censorship-free alternatives to support Mandarin language and Chinese culture initiatives in the U.S., including those provided by our democratic partner Taiwan. Read more about the letter here.

President Joe Biden’s remarks on American Jobs Plan

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Thank you. (Applause.) (Inaudible) Mike asked me — and I said to Bobby, my good friend — he asked me back there — he said, “Do you ever get nervous?” And I — he said, “Because I got up this morning, made breakfast for my kids. I’ve got to introduce the President.’”

And what I say to you, Mike: You did a heck of a job. But I’d get nervous if I had to get up in the middle of the night, climb up a telephone pole, replace — in the middle of a storm — a connection that knocked out everybody’s electricity, and put a transformer in. That’s what would make me nervous. So what you did was really good. I couldn’t do what you do, pal. I couldn’t do what you do.

United States President Joe Biden.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration continues promises for free health care and citizenship for illegal immigrants have unsurprisingly led to an influx of migrants overwhelming our southern border.

When our nation isn’t secure, every town becomes a border town, and every state becomes a border state. The current crisis has put our nation’s public health and safety on the line. I called out the rapidly worsening immigration crisis and discussed the hypocrisy of open-border policies.
