We Must Never Put Convenience Before Our Security
The Department of Defense, Justice Department and Department of Interior have all banned Chinese-manufactured drones over security concerns. Obviously, they don’t make these decisions without a good reason.

We’ve put convenience before national security in our dealings with China for decades and it hasn’t worked…
It’s time to rethink our relationship with China on strategic grounds and be less dependent on products made in China! Click here to learn more.

Episode One: Pastor Raymond Dix Jr.
In an era of 240 character tweets, fast-paced media segments and the 24-hour news cycle, podcasts have become an invaluable tool to slow down and consume longform content during a workout, a commute or at home relaxing. I hope that listeners will get to know more about my role as their representative, and I’d like to share with them the incredibly gifted people I get to work with in Indiana and beyond.
I’m very excited to share with you Episode One, featuring special guest Pastor Raymond Dix Jr. of Pilgrim Baptist Church of Fort Wayne. Together, we discuss reconciliation and issues related to race in America. Please give it a listen on here or wherever you get your podcasts!
