Rep. Russ Fulcher’s Statement on the Impeachment of President Trump

“Today, a stain will be left on the history of the U.S. House of Representatives… one which neither fact nor time will be able to wipe clean.

Op-Ed: What is YOUR Line in the Sand?

There is no doubt, your freedom is under attack. What is your line in the sand? Do you have one? Can we draw a “line in the sand” when we may not even be sure where it should be? How many rights are we willing to lose, rather than stand up for truth? For example, […]
