Reps. Jordan and Meadows: Democrats don’t care about the integrity of the census

Do you know how many people in the United States are American citizens? No one does. And the Democrats don’t want you to find out. For nearly 150 years, the United States asked people whether they were citizens when filling out various census forms. Thomas Jefferson first proposed the idea in 1800. A

National Computer Forensics Institute: Providing law enforcement with top training, resources

Unlike the shows you may see on TV, in today’s age of rapidly developing technology, it’s not always a drop of blood or a strand of hair that solves the crime. Instead, our nation’s law enforcement is increasingly relying upon digital evidence — whether it be a debit card purchase that was made, a geolocation signal that was detected or a text message that was sent — in order to solve the crimes they face on a daily basis. The added layer of complexity posed by ...

D.C. is disregarding the sanctity of life. Congress must act.

The D.C. Council last year made a serious error when it passed the Death With Dignity Act, legalizing physician-assisted suicide in the District. Now it is Congress’s duty and constitutional obligation to ensure the act does not stand. Those ...

Report on warrantless surveillance shows Congress must update privacy laws

Imagine living in a country where individual privacy is not protected. Where local police officers can read your text messages without a warrant. Where state and federal officers can trick your cell phone into thinking it’s connecting to a cell tower when it’s really connecting to a device that gives big brother your location and the telephone numbers you’re calling. Where none of your cell phone use is private and some officers don’t need probable cause to track you. Because of an ...

The man behind the curtain in drug price increases

More so than most issues we deal with in Washington, health care is personal.  We all feel it when something changes in our health care system.  No one is immune, and for some, those changes mean life or death. It is very understandable, then, that fluctuation in drug prices draws so much public attention.  Lifesaving medications are not a choice for a family relying on them to protect a loved one, they are a necessity. As a pharmacist for more than 30 years, and the only pharmacist in ...

Mylan CEO should be ashamed of EpiPen prices

Last week the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on the skyrocketing price of life-saving Epinephrine Auto-Injectors, better known as the EpiPen. This hearing was especially important because EpiPens are predominantly used to keep children alive, which makes accessibility imperative. During the hearing, I and other members of the committee questioned Heather Bresch, CEO of Mylan, the pharmaceuticals company that manufactures EpiPen. Recently, Mylan has deservedly ...

Adopting a zero trust cyber model in government

There is no disputing the 2015 OPM data breach was a disastrous event. The implications are catastrophic and will reverberate for generations. Foreign attackers stole personally identifiable information (PII) and security clearance background investigation information of 22.1 million individuals, capturing fingerprint data of 5.6 million of those individuals. This didn’t have to happen. The arrival of sophisticated threat actors shouldn’t have come as a surprise. Federal agencies must ...

Why The US Government Needs a Cyber National Guard

I knew the federal government had a real problem with cybersecurity. But there was one moment, during an oversight hearing with the senior security officer at the Social Security Administration (SSA), that I realized it was even worse than I originally thought. I asked a simple question about what the agency, which stores the personally identifiable information for nearly all Americans, was doing to patch bugs revealed by a technical vulnerability ...

Hillary Clinton: Above the law?

For those who wonder why the vast majority of regular Americans think Washington, D.C., is rigged against them, just look at today’s headlines. They show that the elite and well-connected in Washington play by a different set of rules. ADVERTISEMENT When testifying before the Benghazi Select Committee in October of 2015, Hillary Clinton said to us under oath, “there was nothing marked classified on my emails, either sent or received.” We now know that statement is patently false, ...
