Holocaust Remembrance Day
Every year, on January 27, the world comes together to remember the millions of innocent men, women and children murdered by the Nazi regime. I would be remiss if I didn’t make one thing very clear—while today may be the official International Day of Remembrance, the thought that these atrocities were happening not too long ago and not too far away never escapes me.
Staying vigilant against antisemitism, and all forms of discrimination, is not something we should just verbalize, but practice on a daily basis. Together, we must ensure that the world never sees such darkness again.
We have unfortunately experienced heightened levels of discrimination aimed at our Jewish and Asian neighbors in recent years here in New York. Those acts go against everything I value as an American and I hope you all join me in re-committing that hate will not win.
Please take a moment today to say a prayer for all the lives lost, as well as those who lived through the unimaginable horror of the holocaust.
Speaker McCarthy Announces Key New Committee Members
The Speaker of the House announced the list of Congressional Members that will serve on a subcommittee that will investigate the “weaponization” of the federal government and COVID-19.
It is exactly for reasons like this that it was crucial for Republicans to take back the United States House. With Democrats no longer in control, special interest and big government take a hit. Now we have the ability to get to the bottom of the issues that matter most and investigate circumstances that changed the course of American history and our lives.
Rep. Jim Jordan has been tapped to lead the panel on weaponization. Joining him will be Reps. Darrell Issa, Thomas Massie, Chris Stewart, Mike Johnson, Chip Roy, Kelly Armstrong, Greg Steube, Dan Bishop, Kat Cammack, Harriet Hageman and New York’s own Elise Stefanik.
Rep. Elise Stefanik released a statement where she promised to “hold the DOJ and FBI accountable for their longstanding political weaponization.” Additionally, she intends to probe both the IRS and HHS.
Additionally, a new subcommittee on COVID-19 has also been formed to investigate the origins of the virus and what role the federal government may have played in its gain of function research as Republicans look for answers in regard to the pandemic.
To lead that committee, Speaker McCarthy chose Rep. Brad Wenstrup, Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Debbie Lesko, Michael Cloud, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ronny Jackson, Rich McCormick and another of New York’s stars Nicole Malliotakis.
