First they wanted you to kneel, and now they want to replace the national anthem. This is an erasure of our history and tradition--plain and simple.

I’m glad all our Five Eyes partners have taken steps to block Huawei, but we still need Canada and New Zealand to join the US, UK and Australia in pledging a full ban of  #Huawei equipment for their  #5G networks.

Casually calling criticism of Chinese tech "xenophobia" erases Chinese netizens who risked jail time to speak out about the Great Firewall. Not to mention ongoing from Hong Kong, where PRC surveillance and censorship looms ever larger.

The  @The New York Times is spiraling... steady decline since the 2016 Jim Rutenberg op-ed that advocated journalists become activists and write slanted pieces opposing political figures they don't like. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/08/business/balance-fairness-and-a-proudly-provocative-presidential-...

Bari Weiss gets it.

The usually astute  @The Wall Street Journal Ed Board is right again. “The evidence—scientific, health and economic—argues overwhelmingly for schools to open in the fall.” Read the full piece here: https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-case-for-reopening-schools-11594681985

Great to see Great Britain take its sovereignty seriously. With all 'Five Eye' members now working together to exclude firms beholden to the  #CCP from  #5G networks, the rest of Europe should follow suit. Thanks to  @Nigel Farage et al. who forced this issue from the beginning!

Remote classes reduce learning by ~50%. 3/4 of teachers say it's harmful & I spoke w/ many very worried teachers in IN... So why do teachers unions push remote learning over in-person lessons? It's like a firefighter union opposing fire codes. Puzzle! https://freebeacon.com/coronavirus/teachers-unions-rebuff-trump-push-to-reopen-schools/

"1/2 of US citizens are White Supremacists. They need to cool it with the divisive rhetoric." -- Sen. Mazie Hirono Smears and lies aren't going to help you win an election, senator. It hasn't worked before, and it won't work now.

Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono says that Trump supporters are “white supremacists.”

There's 0 evidence closing schools helps fight  #COVID. That's why almost all developed countries—incl China—are resuming in-person school this fall. CA students will be left behind b/c the "party of science" puts superstition & politics > sound policy. https://www.axios.com/los-angeles-san-diego-schools-reopen-9c8db4ef-7c3f-41b3-be3d-88859fc37829.html...

My bill, Stop Funding the PLA Act, would build a list of blacklisted firms with ties to China's military. US businesses, & federal gov should follow suit & teach the  #CCP a lesson: authoritarianism is not profitable.

It’s disgusting the  #CCP are trying to profit off a pandemic of their own making. The U.S. Congress should do all we can to stop them—let’s pass my Restricting Predatory Acquisition During COVID-19 Act to stop  #China from buying up American businesses. https://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/articles/2020/7/2/officials-fear-chinese-predatory-acquisiti...

CCP intentionally fed the WHO misinformation about COVID-19. If they had been honest from the beginning, this global pandemic could have been prevented. China should be held financially responsible for all of the fiscal damages caused by COVID-19. https://cnsnews.com/article/washington/terence-p-jeffrey/rep-greg-steube-chinese-government-should-p...

 #IRGC is partnering w/ a regime that keeps Muslims in concentration camps. An Iran-China security partnership discredits both govs. If the  #CCP violates US sanctions on Iran & props up the Ayatollah,  @Secretary Pompeo should respond appropriately. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/11/world/asia/china-iran-trade-military-deal.html

Huawei is a  #CCP espionage tool that makes it impossible to safely trade intel. My bill H.R.5661, would ban intel sharing w/ countries that use  #Huawei. Hope the U.K. secures our 5 Eyes relationship & blocks  #Huawei from its 5G network. https://freebeacon.com/national-security/britain-set-to-ban-huawei-from-5g/

If you didn’t express your extreme outrage over Obama’s commutations you probably don’t have much credibility to outrage over  #RogerStone. And hard to take you seriously if you didn’t outrage over  #SpyGate either!!

A little bit of perspective for those who are outraged that @realdonaldtrump commuted Roger Stone sentence. Let’s not forget Roger Sone was going to jail for 9 years for “interfering” in a fake investigation. An investigation that all in Govt who started the process knew was BS.

Flagrant, rampant lawlessness.

You can’t ignore it or make excuses for it.

We must get control of it!

Looking forward to being with  @steve hilton tonight to discuss my Reopen Our Schools Act I introduced with  @Rep. Tom Tiffany! Our kids are getting a raw deal if we don’t  #ReopenSchools and we risk leaving generation behind.  @The Next Revolution  @Fox News

TONIGHT 9p  @The Next Revolution: - the facts on school re-opening - new campaign: re-open school or  #MySchoolMoneyBack - Biden's new platform: populist or socialist? - more  #PositivePatriotism - 2020 latest w/  @Jim Banks  @Sara A. Carter  @Jason Chaffetz  @Jordan Sekulow  #PositivePopulism

Praying for all those who were on board 🙏

Very serious fire has broken out on board assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard alongside in San Diego.

U.S. Officials Fear Chinese Predatory Acquisitions During Pandemic | Story by  @Connie Lee |  @Jim Banks

The Russia collusion hoax was an anti-democratic witch hunt meant to take down  @Donald J. Trump. They failed, but they still managed to entrap Roger Stone, Flynn & others. Thankful to the President for providing the victims (some) justice. Hopefully more Justice to come!

BREAKING: President Trump has commuted the sentence of Roger Stone.

Statement from the White House:

BREAKING: President Trump has commuted the sentence of Roger Stone. Statement from the White House:

All the more reason to pass my bill the Online User Protection Act. https://www.foxbusiness.com/technology/amazon-orders-employees-to-delete-tiktok-from-phones-over-sec...

Why won't  @Nancy Pelosi condemn the violence??

Dear Speaker Pelosi: 

The mob violence against people and property must end, and law and order must be restored.

Kudos to Amazon for requesting employees delete  #TikTok... more people need to know about TikTok’s dangerous ties to the  #CCP. Congress should pass my Online Consumer Protection Act to warn users if an app is owned by a hostile foreign regime like  #China. https://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/506797-amazon-asks-employees-to-delete-tiktok-from-mobile-d...

We are in a competition with  #China which threatens our way of life, and we may lose under the wrong leadership. To keep America competitive, we need to encourage companies to do business in America with competitive tax rates—not drive them away. https://www.atr.org/biden-wants-raise-us-corporate-tax-rate-higher-communist-china

 #Huawei = the Chinese Communist Party

You will rarely see a select committee chairman spring a trap during questioning quite so smoothly as Greg Clark did with Huawei bosses this morning

@Donald J. Trump says to “open our schools!” so angry Dems say to shut them down ... It’s the most dangerous side of Trump Derangement Syndrome.  #ReopenSchools
