Scoops of the Day

It's the first day of LGBTIQ+ History Month. Our message hasn’t changed: No one should be forced to flee home because of who they are. Today. Tomorrow. Every day. We stand with LGBTIQ+ refugees around the world.

Secretary-General @antonioguterres  is deeply concerned about the unfolding developments in Burkina Faso. He strongly condemns any attempt to seize power by the force of arms. Full statement:

But my parents toiled to taught me, when you love your neighbor, when you love others, (especially those others deemed unloveable, ignored, condemned, scorned) it is a great and worthy prayer of gratitude that you can give God.

What happened to pro-life activist Mark Houck was OUTRAGEOUS! Merrick Garland has done more damage to the credibility of the DOJ and FBI than any Attorney General in history.

Iran is selling weapons to Russia to use against our Ukrainian allies. Nothing the Biden administration has done is working to stop those weapons. Why hasn’t the Biden Administration imposed sanctions on the Iranian banks that fund and facilitate those sales?

The Electoral Count Reform Act is horrible policy. It will decrease the ability of Congress to address the problem of voter fraud.

Nord Stream 2 appears to have been sabotaged and is currently leaking into the sea. This didn't have to happen. Biden waived sanctions I authored that would have stopped the pipeline from ever being completed.

Today the Senate unanimously passed my bipartisan FDA Modernization Act 2.0 to end animal testing mandates! This is an important step toward innovation and ending the needless suffering and death of animal test subjects.
