It hasn’t even been a year since Joe Biden entered the White House and immediately began “fundamentally transforming” the United States.
The damage is already deep, but America is still America, and we can recover if enough patriots push back and resist the growing tyranny. Parents are doing that at the school board level, and this movement needs to grow to affect other levels of government.
Americans need to be reminded that we live in a nation of unprecedented freedom and prosperity, made possible by our Judeo-Christian values and constitutional framework of limited government.
Right now, the Left is in power and is working hard to destroy what has made America exceptional.
In short order, Biden and his Democrats in Congress rolled back President Trump’s successful border strategy, unleashing a human tsunami across the southern border.
It is a humanitarian and national catastrophe.
Biden ordered an utterly disastrous surrender in Afghanistan, stranding many Americans and betraying Afghans who had risked their lives working with us against the Taliban.
In his very first week in office, Biden imposed a bizarre transgender agenda on the nation’s schools and armed forces and launched other radical social agendas through federal agencies.
Under Trump, America had finally gained energy independence. Bowing to environmental extremists, Biden canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline, put a moratorium on oil leasing on federal lands, and canceled oil leases in Alaska.
America once again became dependent on oil from other nations, forcing Biden to beg Saudi Arabia and other nations to pump more oil when shortages developed. Prices at the pump have skyrocketed. Serious inflation has returned as the government has pumped trillions into the economy even while jobs have gone begging.
The Democrats are still threatening to “pack” the Supreme Court, end the Electoral College, and give statehood to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to guarantee four more Democrat Senate seats
Their proposed Freedom to Vote Act would unconstitutionally nationalize election procedures and gut state election safeguards such as voter ID. It would cement in place the election mess we saw during 2020 when COVID-19 was the excuse to allow mass mailing of millions of ballots, erection of dropboxes in selected neighborhoods, and violations of state constitutional election procedures. All of this made vote fraud easier.
Congress is wrestling over $4 trillion or more in new spending in a bid to erect a socialist, centralized government in Washington, D.C.
The Democrats’ goal is to turn the entire nation into a one-party state like California, where leftist policies are driving out longtime residents amid high taxes, blackouts, and homeless encampments.
Meanwhile, America has retreated from international leadership and is now being rolled by our enemies in China and Europe.
Any one of these policies would be harmful, but taken together, they amount to a full-court-press, Marxist assault on America.
The good news is that many, many people have awakened to the threat and are asking what they can do to preserve this great country.
What should Christians and Jews who take their faith seriously do in the face of the Left’s orchestrated chaos?
Bob McEwen leads the Council for National Policy, a group of national security, economic and social conservatives that work to keep America strong.
Mr. McEwen was elected to represent Ohio’s Sixth district in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1980. Prior to his congressional service, he operated a successful Ohio real estate and development firm and served three terms in the Ohio General Assembly as the Senior Republican on the Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee.
In Congress, Bob filled a variety of positions. He was asked to serve as Special Presidential Envoy for both Presidents Reagan and Bush. He also served as a United States representative to the European Parliament from 1985 to 1993.
Rep. McEwen served as Chairman of the Environmental Affairs task force of the United States delegation to the European Parliament. He was selected by the Democratic leadership of the U.S. Congress as the chief spokesman for the United States in discussions with the European Green Party and other Environmental Organizations.
On August 23, 1989, Congressman McEwen and Sen. Bob Dole participated as United States observers in Warsaw, Poland to the first-ever Parliamentary election of a non-Communist leader of a Soviet bloc country. Hours later, the new Prime Minister, in his first official act, received the Congressman and Senator prior to meeting with the Soviet representatives of the regime that had occupied that nation for 50 years. This action was the spark that encouraged the collapse of Soviet-dominated governments throughout Eastern Europe culminating in the destruction of the Berlin Wall 10 weeks later. Senator Dole and Rep. Bob McEwen met the following day with the President and U.S. National Security team in Kennebunkport, Maine to fashion the United States’ response and position in support of Warsaw Pact nations seeking to break away from Soviet domination.
Rep. McEwen served as an official United States observer in Moscow during both the 1991 Soviet coup attempt and to the Kremlin in January of 1992 when the Soviet Union was dissolved.
Bob was elected by his colleagues to the two most coveted positions in the U. S. Congress; the Select Committee on Intelligence, which oversees all of our nation’s secrets, and the powerful House Committee on Rules, which has jurisdiction over all legislation. As one of only four Republicans on the 13-member Rules Committee, Mr. McEwen managed nearly one-third of all legislation on the House floor for the Republican side of the congressional aisle.
Bob McEwen’s legislation approved by Congress included the National Strategy Act, which realigned the chain of command during times of hostilities directly from the Theater Commander to the National Command Authority in Washington. Defense Secretary Dick Cheney and General Norman Schwarzkopf have credited this change with playing a major role in the success of Operation Desert Storm.
He was selected by administration and congressional leaders to floor manage such critical national security legislation as the B-2 bomber authorization, the nuclear freeze debate, and to give the closing arguments before the vote to authorize military action by the United States in Desert Storm.
Bob McEwen has often been selected as negotiator to bring resolution to Senate/House conference committee impasses on dozens of pieces of legislation, particularly affecting Public Works, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and International Relations.
Mr. McEwen has appeared on CNN’s Crossfire, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Larry King Live, and other network programs. As a leading advocate for pro-family interests and free-market economics, he has written for numerous national publications and maintains an active international speaking schedule.
Bob is married to the former Liz Boebinger, of Canton, Ohio. Together they have four children. Bob & Liz McEwen volunteer as speakers at Family Life Marriage Conferences in the United States and Canada.
