Migrant encounters over 200,000 again in August, as border surge continues

Once again, there were 200,000 migrant encounters at the Southern Border during the month of August. When is this administration going to take responsibility for this crisis that THEY created? #BidenBorderCrisis

There were more than 200,000 migrant encounters at the southern border in August, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed on Wednesday, the second month in a row where the number has been over the 200,000 mark as migrants continue to attempt to enter the U.S.

During national #SmallBusinessWeek, we celebrate the contributions and determination of America’s small businesses.

As a member of House Small Business Committee Republicans, I am fighting for pro-growth policies that will help businesses thrive, provide equal opportunity, limit regulation, and incentivize-job seekers. I’m also advocating for additional tax reform, intellectual property rights, portable health benefits, and transportation and infrastructure improvements to bring prosperity to all American small businesses.

This week, I visited Rochester to be a part of the Job Creators Network’s Bring Small Business Back Bus Tour and was honored to receive the “Defender of Small Business” award. Organizations like JCN are fighting for commonsense ideas like lower taxes, less regulation, and pro-growth policies that promote investment, innovation, and entrepreneurship across our country. I am grateful for their leadership and support.

As we move out of the pandemic, expanding economic opportunity and job creation in southern Minnesota and across America is more critical than ever. Many employers are looking for skilled workers to fill well-paying jobs, yet the Biden Administration and the Democrats continue to push massive government spending and failed Washington policies that are incentivizing Americans not to work. This inspired me to host a job fair in North Mankato that was able to give business owners, industry leaders, and local services from around southern Minnesota the opportunity to connect with candidates to fill needed jobs.

What makes America, America, is the millions of small businesses across this country. Every day wonderful people wake up to make substantial contributions to our communities and our economy. They provide what we need, and in return, all they ask is to be left alone and get Uncle Sam off their backs. We need to cultivate opportunity in America – not punish – and fight for local businesses and job creators in order to get people back to work and our economy back on track!

Survey of small businesses finds optimism falling as Democrats push for tax hikes

A poll from Job Creators Network found that optimism among small business owners has DROPPED due to the Democrats’ plan to raise taxes amid rising inflation. Main Street job creators are shouldering the burden of failed Washington policies as they struggle to move out of the pandemic.

We must continue to fight for pro-growth policies that will help businesses thrive, provide opportunity, limit regulation, and incentivize-job seekers in order to bring prosperity to ALL American small businesses.

Optimism among small business owners has plummeted as Democrats race to raise taxes amid rising inflation, according to a new poll by a right-leaning advocacy group Friday.

Luetkemeyer leads resolution recognizing National Small Business Week

I was proud to sign on to Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer's resolution recognizing September 13, 2021 to September 17, 2021 as National #SmallBusinessWeek.

I will continue to support and defend our small businesses and address the challenges they are facing head-on so we can get Americans’ back to work and our nation’s economy back on track!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Committee on Small Business Ranking Member Blaine Luetkemeyer led a resolution recognizing September 13, 2021 to September 17, 2021 as "National Small Business Week." This resolution was signed by all Committee Republicans.

Report: Milley Promised To Warn Chinese About US Military Operations - Washington Free Beacon

Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, must go. Recent revelations against him point to a complete usurpation of our constitutional system and a breakdown in the chain of command.

Our system rests on civilian control of the military, directed by the President. Gen. Milley decided to conduct his own foreign policy behind the back of President Trump.

His conduct and coordination with China could very well have put the United States in danger and is nothing short of betrayal.

Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Mark Milley secretly promised to warn the head of the Chinese People's Liberation Army before the United States would carry out any "attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you."

During yesterday’s House Small Business Committee Republicans hearing I was honored to introduce Krystal Hernandez, owner of La Plaza F!esta in Madelia, MN. Her success and entrepreneurial spirit have allowed her to expand her restaurant to another location as well as open a local grocery store.

Krystal’s love of community and food has played a big part in making southern Minnesota lively and vibrant. Krystal offered her take on how inflation and labor shortages have affected her businesses. Watch here:

Inflation Eased in August, Though Still High

Inflation remains strong in America with the consumer price index rising again in August – overall it’s up 5.3% since this time last year. Inflation is a tax on every American, and Democrats are doing nothing to stop it.

The consumer-price index rose 5.3% from a year before as supplies and labor continued to drive up prices

Bus tour highlighting small business struggles visits Rochester; Rep. Jim Hagedorn presented with an award

Great recap from KTTC TV on the Job Creators Network's Bring Small Business Back Bust Tour yesterday! Businesses are already having a hard time finding skilled workers; now Biden has decided to ramp up the war on small business by imposing vaccine mandates on employers.

This mandate is a blatantly un-American move for which Biden has NO authority to implement. It will ultimately crush our economy that is already suffering under his failed leadership.

The Bring Small Businesses Back (BSBB) Bus Tour presented by Job Creator Network (JCN) says it is hitting the road across several states with some goals including promoting the business leaders, legislators, and other advocates that are defending small businesses. The tour is highlighting the import...

It was great to be a part of the Job Creators Network’s Bring Small Business Back Bus Tour in Rochester today and receive the Defender of Small Business award.

Small businesses are the job-creating backbone of southern Minnesota, yet the left continues to wage a war on American small businesses with policies like higher taxes, more regulation, and their continued reckless government spending.

We must encourage and empower local businesses and job creators and cultivate opportunity in America – not punish.

About to speak at the Job Creators Network's Bring Small Business Back Bus Tour in Rochester. I am honored to receive the Defender of Small Business award. Every day, I wake up fighting for small businesses in southern Minnesota, championing less taxes and fewer regulations.

Thanks to #Bidenflation, Americans are paying more for just about everything. Inflation has gone up every month of Biden’s presidency and Americans can no longer afford it.

The attacks on September 11th, 2001, changed our country and the world forever - 2,977 people were killed on American soil by 19 radical Islamic terrorists. While these attacks were unbelievably tragic, they did not break our great nation. America stood united, with a renewed sense of patriotism for our great country.

On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we remember and honor those who lost their lives; our heroic first responders who took action that day; and our brave service members who answered the call to fight terrorism around the world.

Now more than ever, we must remember that America is stronger together, and more so than any adversary. We must continue to condemn all forms of terror around the globe and defend our country against it.

May God Bless America. #NeverForget

This second reconciliation package is a socialist spending sham, fueling a War on Agriculture that is being waged by the Biden Administration and Democrats. This bill puts a bullseye on the backs of family farmers.

The future of rural America is in jeopardy, and we cannot afford this package. It will cause higher taxes, skyrocketing energy costs, more regulations, and more consolidation in an industry that is struggling to recover. We need bipartisan solutions, not radical spending sprees!

Leading up to the 2018 Farm Bill, House Ag GOP leadership held 100+ public events with members on both sides of the aisle. Now, House Ag Democrats are forcing through BILLIONS without any feedback or oversight.

Biden to announce vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 employees

Let’s be clear – President Joe Biden has no authority to impose a COVID vaccine mandate on Americans. This is an unconstitutional and un-American step – nothing short of a total abuse of power that relies on force and coercion.

This mandate IS a direct assault on freedom and an attempt by this administration to gain more control over Americans’ lives. Biden has failed to “shut down the virus” and is resorting to authoritarianism and tyranny.

The American people have the right to make their own decisions about their medical care for themselves and their family. And when doing so, make these decisions in consultation with their doctors, not the President or bureaucrats. The best way ahead is to empower Americans to make these choices – that’s how you provide leadership and build trust.

President Joe Biden will announce Thursday that all employers with more than 100 workers will be forced to require coronavirus vaccinations or test employees weekly.

Luetkemeyer: Small Businesses Deserve Bipartisanship

Today, House Committee on Small Business Dems conducted a political overhaul of small business programs and proved they are not willing to work in a bipartisan fashion. They rejected numerous commonsense proposals from House Small Business Committee Republicans, including two from me – one on stepped up basis and one on discrimination.

Instead committee Democrats pushed through billions in spending that will ultimately cause a rise in inflation, increase taxes, and force more regulations on our small businesses that are struggling to recover. Read more here:

CHS plans $60M Minnesota plant expansion to meet renewable diesel demand

CHS Inc has announced a $60 million expansion of its Mankato soybean processing plant, which will greatly increase its presence in the renewable diesel sector.

I have always been an advocate for America’s biofuels industry that powers our rural communities and is key to America’s energy independence.

CHS is the latest soybean processor hoping to increase its presence in the renewable diesel sector, as the company announced a $60 million expansion of its Mankato, Minn., soybean processing plant on Tuesday.
