Campaign for Working Families

I delivered a message to the president today. You can read it below or listen to it here as I recorded it for my daily commentary on the Bott Radio Network. I can guarantee the White House will throw it away, and if I’m not already on the neo-Marxists’ enemies list, this will do it. Here’s a copy of my message to the president.

Presidents Joe Biden and Donald Trump were both at the southern border today. They were not at the same location, however. They went to very different places more than 300 miles apart, and they are even further apart when it comes to immigration policy. It’s not surprising to see these dueling appearances. Illegal immigration is now the top concern among voters. In fact, after three years of Joe Biden’s open borders, a record number of Americans, including a majority of independents, now say illegal immigration is a “critical threat” to the country, and 62% of voters support impeaching… Read More

Hunter Biden finally testified this morning before House Republicans, who are trying to figure out what Biden family members did to earn the millions of dollars they received from foreign interests, including communist China. No one can find any work product for the $20 million the Biden family funneled through 20 different shell companies. What was all that money for? Why did they need 20 different companies? House Republicans may not get answers out of Hunter, but the answers may be in “Blood Money,” the latest book by investigative reporter Peter Schweizer.

The pro-life group Live Action, led by Lila Rose, has created an excellent educational video called “Baby Olivia.” In just over three minutes, it shows the development of Baby Olivia in her mother’s womb.   The video was developed with advice from six doctors, including experts in anatomy, biochemistry, and neuroscience. There’s no activism in the video, just the facts. It is so compelling that legislators in four states have introduced laws requiring that it be shown in biology classes. One state has already done so. Predictably, the baby-killing industry is doing its best to ban it…

Remember the death of George Floyd? It dominated the news for weeks. It triggered a national conversation on race and policing. There were four separate funerals to accommodate all the politicians and dignitaries who wanted to reap some political benefit from his death. Streets were named after him. Bills were passed in multiple states in his name. The left immediately exploited Floyd’s death to advance its narrative of systemic racism throughout America and law enforcement. Joe Biden honors George Floyd every year.

Former President Donald Trump addressed the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Nashville, Tennessee, yesterday.  He received a very warm reception from the large audience of faith-based media influencers. Trump directly addressed the growing threats to religious liberty – threats I often outline in this daily report. Unlike the current administration, Trump vowed to “protect God in the public square” if he is elected.

There was breaking news late yesterday that the Biden administration is planning “a string of new executive actions . . . in an effort to curb migration at the U.S. southern border.” Sources familiar with the plans say an announcement of these new policies will likely be timed around the upcoming State of the Union address. The reason for this sudden change is obvious. The American people believe we are being invaded, and the immigration issue has emerged as a major liability for Biden and his party. But this simply proves one thing: Biden has been lying all along.

Many Christians in America are painfully aware of the horrible persecution that is inflicted on our brothers and sisters overseas by hostile governments and Islamic supremacists. But what many don’t seem to realize is that there is growing hatred and violence against Christians here in America. And if it isn’t stopped, outright persecution isn’t far behind. A shocking new report from the Family Research Council, which I led for 10 years, should set off alarm bells in the American Church.

The United States vetoed a pro-Hamas resolution at the U.N. Security Council today calling for a permanent ceasefire between Israel and the Islamist terrorist group. That’s the good news. The bad news is that there are multiple reports indicating that the Biden administration is pushing its own resolution that still attempts to force Israel into a “temporary ceasefire,” which will result in enormous pressure on Israel to maintain the ceasefire. Moreover, the resolution reportedly calls on Israel to refrain from eliminating the final Hamas brigades in Rafah and again pushes the idea of a… Read More

The judge presiding over the civil case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James just ordered Donald Trump to pay $350 million in fines. Trump and his sons were also banned from operating or serving as officers of any New York business for at least two years.   This is an outrageous and blatantly obvious attempt by biased left-wing hacks to utterly destroy Donald Trump.  And you don’t have to take my word for it.   The Associated Press, not exactly a right-wing outfit, recently reviewed 70 years of New York civil fraud cases. Here’s what the AP concluded:   “Trump’s case stands… Read More

We reported yesterday about the unusual and vague warning from Rep. Mike Turner, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Things got even more unusual overnight. It has now been widely reported that the threat involved a “Russian space-based anti-satellite nuclear weapon.” Really? That’s it? There have been reports about the communist Chinese developing anti-satellite weapons for years.  Of course, the Russians are trying to do the same thing. But there was never this level of concern about communist China.

Rep. Mike Turner, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, posted an ominous message this afternoon that has Washington buzzing. In a statement, Chairman Turner wrote: “Today, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has made available to all Members of Congress information concerning a serious national security threat. “I am requesting that President Biden declassify all information relating to this threat so that Congress, the administration, and our allies can openly discuss the actions necessary to respond to this threat.” 

Nothing infuriates people more than when a team or an athlete cheats in a sports contest. When we learn that an athlete set records while taking steroids, we’re angry that he cheated and made a mockery of everyone who played by the rules. One infamous example occurred during the gold medal basketball game between the Soviet Union and the United States at the 1972 Olympics. Even the referees were in on the fix! Well, there’s a lot of cheating happening now. Incredibly, the cheaters insist they are doing it in the name of civil rights.

Congratulations to the victorious Kansas City Chiefs and the defeated San Francisco 49ers. That was an amazing game, particularly the second half. The Super Bowl is a big deal culturally in America. It has an incredible audience, estimated to be at least 100 million viewers. That’s a big reason why Super Bowl ads are so expensive. This year, a 30-second commercial cost $7 million! There were high points and low points last night. As far as I know, no one took a knee during the national anthem. But that brings me to what did happen.

After a year-long investigation, Special Counsel Robert Hur, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland, finally released his report. Hur determined that Joe Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials” for years after he left the Obama White House. Some of these documents date back decades to Biden’s time in the Senate. And these classified documents were found in multiple locations.

The Supreme Court heard arguments this morning on the constitutionality of the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision banning Donald Trump from the ballot under the 14th Amendment’s Insurrection Clause. We expect a quick decision. The questioning from the justices strongly suggests that former President Trump will prevail. Commentators across the spectrum agreed that even two of the court’s liberals, Justices Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson, seemed unconvinced by the argument that the 14th Amendment prevents Donald Trump from appearing on the ballot.

In response to the growing opposition to the Senate’s terrible border deal, Joe Biden stood at the White House podium yesterday and declared: “Every day between now and November, the American people are going to know that the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.” Does he really think he can get away with this? It’s not only another outrageous lie from Joe Biden, it’s also very revealing.

There’s been a lot of sensational reporting over the last 24 hours regarding the Senate’s so-called “border security deal.” Some reports even suggested that the bill was “dead.”  Don’t believe them. It is not dead yet. Powerful forces, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, want this bill, and they will not go quietly into the night. 

Last night, the senators who have been secretly negotiating a so-called “border security bill” for several months finally released the text of their legislation.  I’m not going to summarize the entirety of this 370-page monstrosity. But several things jumped out immediately, any one of which should doom this deal. 

You probably don’t know the name Jhoan Boada, but he has become the symbol of the left’s America last policies. It was very revealing when this thug looked into the cameras this week and gave you and the rest of the country the middle finger (on both hands!) as he walked out scot-free, without having to post a dollar in bail. This after viciously attacking two New York City police officers. Boada and the thousands of others like him may be uneducated. They may not have a good command of English and probably don’t know much about our history. But they can read the equation of power… Read More

There were two important hearings on Capitol Hill yesterday regarding cybersecurity. Most of the media focused on a Senate hearing into what social media companies are doing to our children. Kudos to Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) for forcing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to apologize to the parents in the hearing room. But on the other side of the Capitol, members of the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party heard disturbing testimony from top security officials about the growing threats from Beijing.

I was outraged yesterday as news broke that six more pro-life activists were convicted in Tennessee for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. These peaceful protesters are now facing the possibility of crushing fines and 11 years in jail. That federal law is meant to protect both crisis pregnancy centers and abortion centers. But the radically pro-abortion Biden administration has weaponized the law against peaceful pro-life activists. Thousands of people were here in Washington, D.C., for the annual March For Life a few weeks ago.  They are wonderful, decent… Read More

Yesterday, we told you about the absurd statement from White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre on the deaths of three military heroes in Jordan. She referred to them as “folks fighting for the administration.” What?! I realize that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin is still recovering from an illness that he lied about. But his statement yesterday sounded like it was written by some of the White House interns who periodically go outside the White House to join the protests against Israel. Every administration spokesman I heard yesterday began by saying, “We’re not looking for a… Read More

The attack this weekend in the Middle East against our brave military was a reminder of the growing dangers to the United States. Three U.S. military personnel were killed and more than 40 were wounded in a drone strike against U.S. forces based in Jordan. Joe Biden’s weakness and his cowardly foreign policy put them in harm’s way. Biden and the left-wing of his party, going back to the Obama/Biden era, have spent years attempting to appease Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Ten top former FBI officials have sent an extraordinary letter to congressional leaders. They warned that America is currently facing “one of the most pernicious” threats to our national security they have ever witnessed. They point to the thousands of military-aged men from enemy nations who are invading our country by foot every day walking across the southern border. Here’s a brief excerpt from their letter: “It would be difficult to overstate the danger represented by the presence inside our borders of what is comparatively a multi-division army of young single adult males from… Read More

Joe Biden is allowing an invasion of the United States. It’s undeniable. Illegal immigration has broken records every year of his presidency, and the ONLY thing he has done is make the problem even worse. In fact, some conservative pundits are, appropriately in my view, referring to the border crisis as “Biden’s insurrection against America.” But as illegal aliens take over major airports, hotels, public schools and local hospitals, his open borders policy is now hurting him in the polls.

When Ron DeSantis dropped out of the Republican presidential contest Sunday, Nikki Haley got the “two-person race” she wanted. Last night, she got trounced by Donald Trump. Some pundits are claiming that Haley “overperformed” in New Hampshire and earned the right to fight on. Let’s be honest: Trump’s 12-point win was a landslide. Here’s the bottom line: If you’re going to win, you’ve got to win somewhere. For a variety of reasons, New Hampshire was Haley’s best chance for an upset, and it didn’t happen.

I was very disappointed yesterday to learn that Chief Justice John Roberts was able to convince Justice Amy Coney Barrett to join him and the three liberal justices in ordering Texas to remove wire barriers on the southern border. While this 5-to-4 order wasn’t a decision on the merits, which the justices will consider later, it was a bad sign for the future of the case. But why is this case even before the Supreme Court? Because Joe Biden is refusing to secure the borders.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis dropped out of the Republican presidential primary yesterday afternoon. The signs were all there. While he finished second in the Iowa caucuses, it was a distant and disappointing finish given the tremendous effort his campaign invested in the state. Polls in New Hampshire were even worse, and it’s difficult to claim momentum after back-to-back losses. Then stories emerged Saturday that his campaign abruptly canceled two major Sunday interviews due to “scheduling conflicts.” That seemed like a “tell.”

Today is one of the highlights of my year. It’s the annual March For Life. Hundreds of thousands of people have come to Washington, D.C., braving the winter weather to defend innocent preborn babies.
