Congressman Tom McClintock

Representing the 4th District of California

Speeches

February 11, 2020 Speeches
Lost amidst the tumult of the last several weeks was the quiet passing of an outspoken leader of California – H.L. “Bill” Richardson. H.L., as he was known to his friends, arrived in the California State Senate with the freshman class of 1966, part of the Reagan landslide that year. For every one of the 22 years he served in the Senate, H.L. was a force to be reckoned with. He served for many years in the Republican leadership, but he was never, ever, a political insider. His enormous influence inside the senate stemmed from the fact that he never joined that club – he never lost sight of the people who elected him – and he not only worked tirelessly to serve them inside the capitol – he worked even harder to organize, inform and mobilize them outside the capitol.

Although the west faces an on-going water crisis, the Water Subcommittee has not held a hearing to address it since July of 2019. Equally disappointing is the fact that after six months of inactivity on the subject, the best the majority can offer is a hodge-podge of New Mexico earmarks and legislation that duplicates in California’s Central Valley what the WIIN Act of 2016 is already accomplishing, but desperately needs to be reauthorized.

Throughout the debate yesterday on the so-called war powers resolution, some fundamental misunderstandings surfaced that I feel need to be addressed.

President Trump needed no other reason to order the attack that killed Soleimani IN IRAQ beyond the simple fact that he was acting as an enemy combatant against U.S. forces in a war zone in which the Congress had authorized the President to take military action.

December 12, 2019 Speeches
The Constitution introduces the Presidency with 15 words: “The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.” It does not vest any authority in Lieutenant Colonels at the NSC, ambassadors, state department officials, or cabinet secretaries. The only authority that these officials exercise is delegated to them by the President. Thus, all of the criticisms and resentments and personal and political disagreements that we have heard from those officials are completely irrelevant to this discussion.
