I authored & introduced the "CHIPS for America Act" at the request of President Trump's national security team to onshore U.S. production of this critical asset – and since its passage, we've embarked on the greatest Tech Revolution since the Manhattan Project. I couldn’t be prouder to see Samsung leading the way right here in Central Texas.

MOORE: Small-Business Confidence Hits 12 Year Low - Here's Why; Bidenomics

If the economy is so good, why do small business leaders feel so bad? The latest Small Business Optimism Index from the National Federation of Independent Business could hardly be more depressing. It finds that the men and women who run our 33 million Small Businesses and hire more than half of American workers are in a somber mood. The survey finds that small-business confidence has reached its lowest point in 12 years.

GONZALES: On Border Security & Foreign Aid Vote, 'We Don't Let Our Allies Bleed Out on the Battlefield'

"I strongly supported the End the Border Catastrophe Act because it would have closed asylum loopholes, reinforced Border Security Infrastructure, and delivered more resources to enforce against illegal immigration. As usual though, partisan politics got in the way, keeping many of my colleagues from voting yes to put America first and secure our border," said Cong. Gonzales after voting in favor of the End Border Catastrophe Act and foreign aid legislation to support America’s allies.

SCHLICHTER: I Didn’t Use to – BUT, I Think America Is Waking Up!

I’m concerned, folks. Maybe I’m off base, but I think the evidence is clear Joe’s a senile old serial liar whose inability to tell the truth is matched only by his grubby corruption. Other than that, he’s fine. I’m laughing at all the Democrats looking at all the polls showing Trump's ahead in the Battleground States. Trump was barely ever even in any 2020 Poll, but now he's leading, consistently. They’ve got to be scared – and especially terrified because people hide their support for Donald Trump.

More bad news for Democrats: Compared to four years ago, Joe Biden's lost significant ground with voters under 30 – including a 20-point decline among young men. And, with over half (51%) saying its a more important issue than any other, young men’s views on immigration is playing a significantly larger role in 2024 than in previous elections. By a margin of 37% to 10% they believe immigration has made the U.S. economy worse – and interestingly, young women say they agree.

Congress Should Protect American Distilleries, Not Foreign Liquor Interests

Special interests of the Hard Liquor Lobby in Washington, D.C. are attempting to take advantage of the complicated U.S. Tax Code to make hard-working Americans pay the taxes of multi-national companies. They're lobbying quietly and pushing legislation in the U.S. House & Senate, hoping to attach one of their bills to an Omnibus Spending Bill in a way that typically goes unnoticed. By Congressional definition, its the ultimate earmark for hard liquor.

Are Iran's Nine Lives Nearing an End?

The theocracy of Iran has been the world's arch-embassy attacker over the last half-century. So, it has zero credibility in crying foul over Israel's April 1 attacks on its "consulate" in Damascus and the killing of Iran's kingpin terrorists of the Revolutionary Guard Corps there. The world was first introduced to the Iranian ayatollahs by their violent takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1980. Iranian surrogates next bombed the American embassy in Beirut and the Marine barracks in 1983.
