COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution For Memphis Veterans

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Our veterans made many sacrifices so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. It seems fitting that many of these brave individuals will be among the first groups of people to receive the COVID-19 Coronavirus vaccine if they wish to receive it.

This week, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced that they will provide vaccinations to front line VA healthcare workers and veterans residing in long-term care units, including in our very own Memphis VA Health Care System. Veterans seeking additional information should visit the VA Coronavirus Vaccine FAQs webpage, contact their care team, or visit their facility website.

Marsha Blackburn Introduces Legislation to Defund Businesses Linked to the Chinese Military

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – On Thursday, December 10th, 2020, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R—Tenn.) introduced legislation to prohibit U.S. pension investments in Chinese companies.

“There is no line between the Chinese Communist Party and Chinese businesses. Companies like Huawei prop up and assist the regime in their genocide of the Muslims Uyghurs, Inner Mongolians, Tibetans, and other religious and ethnic minorities. American dollars should not be used to violate human rights,” said Senator Blackburn.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Fulfilling Our Constitutional Duty

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, we honored the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a smart, talented trailblazer who mentored women in the judiciary. She worked hard to achieve prominence on her own merit, and I thank her for her service to our country. 

Yesterday, September 26th, 2020, President Donald Trump announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee to serve as our next Supreme Court Justice. Twenty-nine times in American history there has been a vacancy in a Presidential election year, and all twenty-nine times the President has made a nomination. My colleagues and I on the Judiciary Committee will do our due diligence in vetting Judge Amy Coney Barrett as is consistent with the Senate’s Constitutional duty to provide advice and consent to the President.

Marsha Blackburn, Colleagues Raise Concerns About Netflix’s Choice to Adapt and Promote Film by Proponent of Uyghur Internment

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) led her colleagues in raising concerns with Netflix after the streaming platform’s decision to adapt and promote “The Three-Body Problem” by Liu Cixin as a live-action series on the network.

Liu has propagated genocidal rhetoric regarding the Muslim Uyghurs, and has openly supported the religious minorities internment at “re-education” camps in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR). The adaptation is one of Netflix’s first entrees into the Chinese market.

Blackburn, Rubio, Colleagues Inquire About Disney’s Choice to Film Mulan in Xinjiang, Where More Than One Million Uyghurs Are in “Reeducation” Camps

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) joined Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and their colleagues in inquiring about Disney’s cooperation with Xinjiang’s security and propaganda authorities in the production of the movie Mulan. For years, reports have surfaced highlighting China’s campaign against Uyghur and other ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region’s (XUAR).

“The decision to film parts of Mulan in the XUAR, in cooperation with local security and propaganda elements, offers tacit legitimacy to these perpetrators of crimes that may warrant the designation of genocide,” the members write to The Walt Disney Company’s Chief Executive Officer Bob Chapek.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Reopening Our Country

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Tennesseans want us to incentivize folks to safely return to work. I’ve also been hearing from business owners concerned that people are not returning to work. This is why I joined Senator Rob Portman’s (R-Ohio) Healthy Workplaces Tax Credit Act to help relieve business owners of some of the financial burden associated with creating a safe work environment.

As I write this, billions of dollars from previous coronavirus relief packages sit unspent. We must ensure that any additional coronavirus relief is targeted, and has both the guardrails and flexibility necessary to prevent waste, fraud and abuse.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Re-Examining our Relationship with Communist China

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The coronavirus pandemic has shined a bright light on the many problems that plague our interactions with China. Over the years, Tennesseans have watched Beijing lie, cheat, and steal its way to the top.

This deception puts our songwriters, auto part manufacturers, and countless other industries at a disadvantage well before Beijing’s coronavirus failures made the nightly news. I know that fighting for Tennesseans means unraveling our failed relationship with China.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to authorize subpoenas for 53 officials involved in the abuse of FBI surveillance capabilities, including James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and Susan Rice.
