This week in Congress, Democrats continued pushing their radical agenda, reaching new lows. Time and time again, Democrats put their distaste for the President on full display. This week proved to be no different.
Nancy Pelosi, the current Speaker of the House, parted ways with parliamentary procedures, an extreme stoop from the individual charged with upholding the rules of the House chamber. For the person responsible for serving the American people from all political backgrounds, it is disappointing to see this one sided attack from Speaker Pelosi.
As if that wasn't enough of a push from the Liberals in Congress, Democrat Al Green filed a motion to impeach the President over his social media posts. This motion was rejected by an overwhelming number of members, including myself, which goes to show that all the Democrats' have is unbacked rhetoric and empty votes. Impeaching a sitting President is one of the highest held responsibilities by the House and using it as a political toy is divisive and unprecedented.
Looking ahead, the drama from the left will continue. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is set to testify again to Congress on his findings in the Mueller report. A staffer from the committee of jurisdiction is on record confirming their goal is to give Americans a show -> "not everybody is reading the book, but people will watch the movie." Without any new information, Democrats want to rehash the concluded investigation and harass the President again instead of focusing on the laundry list of items on our agenda before the August work period.
Celebrating Apollo 11's 50th Anniversary This week, we celebrated the extraordinary American accomplishments that took place 50 years ago.
In 1969, America launched three brave space pioneers into space with the moon set as their destination. With Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins on board the Apollo 11, the crew made it to the lunar surface in four days. The engines that helped power the rocket were tested right here in south Mississippi at Stennis Space Center.
I am proud to support the work being performed at Stennis Space Center that will support American space missions.
