Defending America

Condemning Domestic Terrorism

It is shameful for the leaders elected to Congress, with the full confidence of the American people that we will call evil by its name, to sit idly by, complicit in their silence, and not condemn the chaos, the destruction, the violence, the crimes, and the terrorism that is ravaging our nation.  

We’ve got to stand up to this mob! We have to say, no more will you burn our cities! No more will you terrorize our communities, and intimidate, and use fear to squelch any attempt by our local leaders to stop this. These people ought to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They should be locked up away from the citizens who are just trying to live out their lives in this great nation.

Defending American Values

There’s no force in all the world, save and except the love of God, that has elevated mankind and unleashed the full potential of the human spirit like freedom. And, no other nation holds liberty in such high regard, protects our God-given rights, and defends our fundamental freedoms like the United States. As a result, Americans have been blessed with unparalleled opportunity, prosperity, and dignity.

Freedom is a remarkable idea. It’s a privilege and a responsibility. It’s the central tenet of our democratic republic. It’s our legacy and our calling. But as Ronald Reagan warned, “freedom is a fragile thing, never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation.”

As we legislate, lead, and represent, you, the citizens of this great land, what makes and will keep America great are our values. We must defend, promote, and fight for a future of one nation under the sovereignty of God.

Say No to Socialism

America is the most powerful, the most prosperous and most generous nation in the world and it's because America is the freest nation in the history of the world! John Adams warned, "you'll never know how much it cost my generation to preserve your freedom, I hope you will make good use of it." Our Founding Fathers knew that limiting our government would unleash the limitless potential of the American people. Nothing has been a stronger force for good, save & except the love of God, than freedom and our free enterprise system. 

Supporting Law Enforcement 

Where’s the outcry from the media over the violent mobs and criminal thugs who viciously assault and kill innocent people trying to defend our communities? I want to see those victims on the front page of every newspaper in America. Let us never forget there would be no liberty without security, no land of the free without a home of the brave.

The men and women serving in law enforcement and the military are the very best among us. May we always remember the high cost of freedom and recognize the courageous and caring citizens in uniform who are willing to pay the ultimate price every day.

Legislative Efforts in Congress:

  1. Led legislation to increase penalties for inciting, promoting, encouraging, aiding, abetting, and participating in a riot.
  2. Authored legislation to increase the penalties for assaults on federal officers.
  3. Introduced a resolution demanding the feds immediately restore justice, order, and domestic tranquility to protect federal property, federal law enforcement, and the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens.
  4. Voted against H.R. 7120, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which would tie the hands of law enforcement, open the door for frivolous lawsuits against officers, and federalize policing.
  5. In the 116th Congress, Arrington cosponsored H.R. 99, the Thin Blue Line Act, which, if signed into law, would make the murder or attempted murder of a police officer an “aggravating” factor in death penalty determinations.
  6. In the 115th Congress, Arrington voted for H.R. 115, the Thin Blue Line Act, which was passed by the House but never taken up in the Senate.
  7. Voted for H.R. 1039, the Probation Officer Protection Act, which would allow a probation officer to arrest a person without a warrant if there is probable cause to believe they assaulted officers.
