Recently, Speaker Ryan held a Facebook Live Q&A with Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ), a 26-year veteran and the first American woman to fly a plane in combat.

On Friday, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) introduced the Homeland Safety and Security Act (H.R. 5611), which comes in response to a spate of terrorist attacks across the globe, including the heinous assault in Orlando.

"This isn’t trying to come up with a solution to a problem. This is trying to get attention.”
The attempt to selectively edit the record reflects a broader, more serious problem—this administration’s continued effort to downplay and distract from the threats posed by ISIS and radical Islamist extremism. This is unacceptable."
"The administration should release the full, unredacted transcript so the public can see for itself what drove this individual to carry out such a heinous attack."

Over the weekend, our country was once again attacked by radical Islamic extremism. The mourning process will take time, and while we pray for the victims and their loved ones, we continue our vigilance against homegrown terrorism.

This week, Speaker Ryan returned from his first foreign visit as speaker of the House. He and a bipartisan delegation of House members visited five countries in eight days, where they met with dozens of senior government and military officials and consistently delivered a single, clear message:

  • ISIS must be destroyed. The United States is committed to defeating radical Islam that threatens freedom and stability throughout the world.

President Castro’s failed attempt to pose an iconic image raising hands with President Obama was just the latest in a series of photos that have come to define this administration’s foreign policy legacy. It’s a legacy of disastrous attempts to appease dictators at the expense of alienating allies—and one that may be best summarized with photos

“And to all those brave people who are being persecuted, I would simply like to say this: We will stand with you, we will pray for you, and we will work every day to put these words into action.”

The Obama administration has just 24 hours left to comply with a congressionally mandated deadline passed in December to determine whether ISIS’s atrocities against religious and ethnic minorities constitute a genocide.
