Media stalks Nunes family again

As you may have seen in recent news coverage, the mainstream media and left-wing activists have been harassing my wife, uncle, and even my 98-year-old grandmother. The latest attack is on my parents and my brother. You can read about it at this link

Nunes trip generates fake news attacks

As many of you know, I recently returned from an overseas trip for the House Intelligence Committee in which I met with U.S. military and intelligence personnel and foreign government officials in numerous countries. Somewhat unsurprisingly, I came home to find a deluge of fake news stories about my trip. It's a sad commentary on the mainstream media today that it will re-report, without the slightest skepticism, obviously false stories that are based on anonymous sources, as long as the stories serve the Democrats' political purposes.

Julie Kelly at American Greatness debunked these fake news stories here.

My visits with U.S. troops overseas

I just returned from a trip overseas for the House Intelligence Committee, having met with government, military, and intelligence officials in various countries. I also had the opportunity to meet with U.S. troops stationed abroad, whose patriotism and high morale are deeply inspiring. The trip included visits with the Army's 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry and the Marine Corps Black Sea Rotational Force at the Mihail Kogalniceanu (MK) Air Base in Romania, a key logistical hub for U.S. forces in the Black Sea region. I also went to the country of Georgia to observe Noble Partner 2018, a multinational military exercise led by the U.S. and Georgian militaries. Pictures of those visits are below.

Another California water grab

The California State Water Resources Control Board recently proposed a plan to increase unimpaired water flow requirements on the San Joaquin River. Simply put, this would divert even more water away from people in the guise of environmental protection. Touted as a plan to protect “beneficial water use,” this is simply a scheme to grab more water from California cities, farms, and industry. I recently signed a letter with my California congressional colleagues expressing our strong opposition to the plan. You can read the letter here.

Given that California is experiencing another dry water year, it's totally unacceptable for the state to adopt more water supply restrictions. I will continue working with my colleagues in Congress to fight back against actions like these that would further curtail water deliveries to the San Joaquin Valley.
