Sen. Hawley Introduces NDAA Amendment to Resist Left-Wing Assault on History

"This latest effort to unilaterally rename bases and remove war memorials, all behind closed doors, smacks of the cancel culture the Left wants to impose on the nation. Any discussion about renaming bases should be had in the light of day, out in the open, and it should involve military families, veterans, and state and local stakeholders. That’s what my amendment would do."

Statement on Riots

Last night a group of looters and vandals took to the streets in the Ferguson area of St. Louis to cause damage and harm. The governor was right to activate the National Guard to protect residents and neighborhoods and stop lawless violence.

Like so many others, I have seen the video of George Floyd’s death, and I am appalled by it. It should never have happened. In our country, our Constitution and laws forbid those with government power to abuse it to the harm of others. And our laws provide...
