Tom Cotton on Rule of Law under Biden: ‘We are seeing a breakdown of society’

Breitbart

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said on Monday at the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Associate Justice nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson that the court is an intricate part of upholding the rule of law in the United States.

Cotton and other Republicans are expected to focus on Jackson’s past rulings, which have been described as soft-on-crime decisions.

Cotton said the rule of law has suffered under the administration of Joe Biden, who nominated Jackson to keep a campaign promise.

“These threats to the rule of law are not merely theoretical,” Cotton said. “We are witnessing a breakdown of society.”

“There are many Americans who no longer feel safe today,” Cotton said. “Parents are scared to walk down the streets that used to be free from crime. In 2020 Anarchists, rioters and left-wing street militias raged across the country, and murders increased at the fastest rate in history.”

Jen Psaki Blames Tom Cotton For Voting Against Ukraine Aid – But He Fires Back With Receipts

Daily Wire

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took a swing at Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), claiming that his calls for immediate aid to Ukraine were hypocritical because he had voted against the most recent spending package that contained such aid.

The confrontation began with a tweet from Cotton on Wednesday calling for the weapons Ukraine needed to repel the Russian occupation forces…

…But Cotton fired right back, pointing out the fact that the aid for Ukraine that Psaki had outlined only accounted for a very small percentage of the total package, which had a massive $1.5 trillion price tag.

Cotton op-ed: Biden’s timid leadership in Ukraine on full display in Poland MiG fiasco

Biden’s timid leadership in Ukraine on full display in Poland MiG fiasco

By Sen. Tom Cotton

Fox News

Right now, the Ukrainian people are locked in a desperate struggle against Russian invaders. Their courage in the face of Russia’s brutal onslaught stands in stark contrast to the weakness in the White House.

While President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has rallied his people to defend their homeland, President Biden has responded with timidity and half-measures.

Most recently, Biden rejected a plan to deliver Polish MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine. The Ukrainians are in dire need of aircraft and spare parts to prevent Russia from gaining air supremacy, but the president refused to give the Ukrainians these valuable tools when they were practically handed to him by one of our strongest allies, Poland.

The Poles have a long and proud tradition of killing Russian invaders. They understand that helping Ukraine in its hour of need will make future Russian aggression less likely. As a result, they offered to transfer their entire fleet of MiG-29 fighters to U.S. forces for delivery to Ukraine.

Tom Cotton: GOP must rebuild economy for working class Americans with less immigration, more labor protections

Tom Cotton: GOP must rebuild economy for working class Americans with less immigration, more labor protections

Breitbart

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) says the Republican Party must be the party of less immigration and more labor protections, guided by the economic interests of working- and middle-class Americans.

During a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Cotton detailed the future of the Republican Party, which he said must keep the mantra “America First” at its core across all issues facing American citizens.

“Our economic policies should enrich the lives of Americans in this generation and the next,” Cotton said.

Most significantly, Cotton called on Republicans to reject globalism in all its forms in favor of an ideology that seeks to protect Americans’ livelihoods, jobs, wages, and quality of life.

“We must rebuild an economy that works for all citizens, especially the forgotten men and women left behind by decades of open borders, unfettered trade, and globalization,” Cotton said.

Cotton Placed Holds on DOJ Nominees After Not Hearing Back on Department’s ‘Refusal’ to Defend U.S. Marshalls

Cotton Placed Holds on DOJ Nominees After Not Hearing Back on Department’s ‘Refusal’ to Defend U.S. Marshalls

Townhall

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) placed holds on all Department of Justice nominees Tuesday after it failed to respond to the lawmaker’s letter concerning allegations that the Biden administration is not representing U.S. Marshalls sued over their actions in defending the Portland federal courthouse amid Black Lives Matter riots in 2020.

Eight nominees – four U.S. attorney nominations awaiting votes in the Senate, two U.S. attorneys awaiting votes in the Judiciary Committee and two U.S. Marshals awaiting votes in committee – are now held up by Cotton’s recent move.

The GOP senator sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday asking that the DOJ confirm that it is representing the U.S. Marshals or funding their private counsel, or to “explain why on earth you’re not.”

“These courageous officers were attacked by left-wing street militants with weapons such as mortar fire, ball bearings, and blinding lasers,” Cotton wrote in the letter. “A refusal to represent these Deputy Marshals would violate the Department’s long-standing practice — not to mention its moral duty — to defend law-enforcement officers when they’re sued for actions in the line of duty.”

Cotton vowed to block the department’s nominees if he did not receive a “satisfactory” response by 3 p.m. Tuesday, and now, the senator is moving forward with his threat to object to DOJ nominees.
