The Evans Family Rallies For Congressman Chris Smith

Ashley Evans, a 17 year old Howell  resident, has been  fighting back against the lies being told by Josh Welle in his ads against Congressman Chris Smith since she came across one on YouTube a few weeks ago.

Ashley and her parents, Joseph and Teah have seen telling their story and rallying support for Congressman Smith since they saw Welle’s deceitful attacks.

Prompted by Joe’s comment on MMM on Friday, I caught up with Ashley and Teah during a Karate competition in Jackson on Saturday afternoon.   See their videos below:

Congressman Chris Smith: Gay marriage and adoption is settled law

Josh Welle is lying about Chris Smith–again

The Washington Blade, a website that claims to be America’s LGBT News Source, this morning posted a video, which they claimed was exclusive, which purports to represent Congressman Chris Smith telling students at Colts Neck High School that he thinks children would be better off in orphanages than they would be if adopted by a same-sex couple.

MMM attended the student assembly in Colts Neck on the morning of May 29 and recorded Smith’s 53 minute appearance.  The entire unedited recording, with only Smith’s photo added, is here:  Read the rest of this entry »

Congressman Smith calls for sanctions on Chinese over fentanyl

Congressman Chris Smith today pressed representatives of the State Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency to use the tools prescribed in the Global Magnitsky Act to sanction bad actors in China who are contributing to the opioid overdose crisis in the United States through the manufacture and distribution of the synthetic drug fentanyl.

“Chinese-made fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, is killing Americans—more than 29,000 in 2017 alone,” Smith said. “We must hold the Chinese government accountable.”(Click here to read Chairman Smith’s full opening statement)

“Are we using existing tools to hold bad actors in China accountable? We have tools, such as the Global Magnitsky Act, which targets corrupt officials and human rights abusers. Perhaps it is time we start thinking outside the box and use something like Global Magnitsky to ensure that corrupt Chinese officials and narco-traffickers are held to account,” Smith said during a hearing of the House Subcommittee on Global Heath, which he chairs.
