Two weeks ago, a Biden-appointed Consumer Product Safety commissioner sparked controversy when he said that using a gas stove is a “hidden hazard” linked to asthma and that “products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”
While the Biden administration claims that their open border agenda is a “compassionate” and “humane” alternative to enforcing the immigration laws currently on the books, what we witnessed last week was anything but that.
In spite of the hectic end to the year, we had a productive 2022, successfully repealing the military COVID vaccine mandate, helping sexual assault survivors seek justice, improving supply chains by establishing a national database with information about the interconnectivity of manufacturer…

Nearly every time I turn on the news or read the paper, I see story after story of Americans falling victim to drugs laced with fentanyl.
