Weekly Update - 1.28.24

Good afternoon, and welcome to our Weekend Update.

Another presidential primary was held in New Hampshire on Tuesday, and it was another excellent victory for President Donald J. Trump. President Trump received more votes than any other candidate ever in a New Hampshire Primary. Additionally, nearly half of those who voted for President Trump were Independents. This was a dominating win, and any continuation of this GOP primary is helping Joe Biden. It's time for Nicki Haley to end her campaign so we can all get behind President Trump and win back the White House. I joined the "American Agenda" on Newsmax to discuss. I also gave a shoutout to Newsmax for their extensive and fair coverage. In an age of selective media censorship (especially as it relates to President Trump), it is excellent to see Newsmax's willingness to air the whole story.

As we discussed last week, the period to circulate nominating petitions in Pennsylvania began last Tuesday, January 23 and continues through Tuesday, February 13. I am asking for volunteers to help circulate my petitions for Congress in the 9th District. Additionally, we have petitions to collect signatures for President Donald J. Trump and other statewide candidates. Please email Nate at [email protected] to contact our campaign to get copies of petitions. We appreciate your support.

This week, we released a letter I wrote to the IRS Commissioner demanding a thorough investigation into the $240,000 in “loan repayments” made to Joe Biden from his brother and sister-in-law. The IRS mandates that any loan between family members be completed with a signed written agreement, a fixed repayment schedule, and a minimum interest rate charged – yet the White House has failed to produce any documentation showing these “loans” were ever actually made or that the mandated IRS protocols were followed. As the former Revenue Secretary of Pennsylvania, I know that classifying large payments as “loans” is one of the oldest tricks in the book to avoid paying income tax. It’s very possible that Joe Biden and his family members committed tax fraud and tax evasion. Click here to read my letter. Click here or below to read a story about my letter in the New York Post.

Additionally, I joined Newsmax’s “American Agenda” to discuss Biden’s IRS troubles. Click here or below to watch.

I joined WILK Newsradio with Bob Cordaro this week. We discussed the letter I sent to the IRS Commissioner demanding a comprehensive inquiry into the supposed “loan repayments” made to Joe Biden, rising crime in major cities, and the legislation I've introduced to force ideological prosecutors to do their jobs. Click here or below to listen.

Ideological prosecutors are letting down their communities by failing to prosecute violent criminals. My bill, the Holding Prosecutors Accountable Act, will force District Attorneys to do their jobs and help lower crime rates. I’m also fighting to expose potential tax law violations by Joe Biden. Learn more about both efforts below. I joined Choice 102 WAVR to discuss this issue. Click here or below to listen.

Late this week, the Biden administration announced the decision that they would be pausing all natural gas exports. This decision will have a major impact on our economy and national security. Stay tuned for more on this subject as we will be working to urge the reversal of this terrible decision.

IN NEWS YOU WON’T HEAR IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA: December is expected to be the worst month ever recorded at the southern border.

Is Biden trying to hide it from the public?

“Sources” say approximately 302,000 illegal immigrants were encountered in December, which would represent the highest single-month total on record and the first time the numbers have surpassed 300,000 in a single month.

Many, many more illegal immigrants likely crossed the border undetected and escaped directly into U.S. communities.

Yet, as of today, January 25, the Biden administration has not released the official number — a highly unusual move. It’s the latest the numbers have been released in at least eight years; the Trump administration never released a monthly total later than the 20th of any respective month.

It’s not exactly difficult to see why Biden would want to conceal the numbers as the border crisis spins out of control. November was also a record-setting month for illegal border crossings, while “sanctuary cities” across the country are “at the brink of collapse.”

What is clear is that the problem is not going away.

I just read a headline in the Washington Post, “House GOP unveils Mayorkas impeachment articles despite lack of evidence."

I nearly spit my coffee out! Mayorkis has not only ignored all of our border security laws; he has reversed them. He and Biden could not be more guilty of allowing illegals, deadly drugs, and persons on terror watch lists to enter our nation. They are fostering an environment of human trafficking, wasting billions of taxpayer dollars, and allowing general destruction to border cities and most cities nationwide. Folks, the media has never been more biased and untrustworthy than it is today. They are censoring the GOP presidential nominee for speaking the truth about this and many other issues.

I encourage you to use all resources to get to the truth, and let’s encourage all voters, Republicans, Independents, and traditional Democrats, to do the same.

From a total cover-up of the Biden family selling off America to warm coverage of the wars around the world, of inflation and interest rates crushing particularly low and middle-income Americans, the weaponization of government agencies, Biden's clear cognitive inabilities, and a constant barrage of negativity and falsehoods against President Trump... Our media's biased coverage, 90% of the national press, has created a significant loss of trust for the media.

There’s no transparency or truth. The days of reporting the news are gone. Now, it’s about propagating the left's extreme agenda.

This past week was National School Choice Week. Every student deserves access to a high-quality education, regardless of zip code. School choice gives parents the freedom to choose their child's education—whether they choose public, charter, or private schools or opt for homeschooling.

The loss of a first responder in the line of duty is a profound tragedy that leaves an enduring impact on their families. That’s why I introduced the Gold Shield Families Resolution, which acknowledges and honors the dedication and sacrifices made by the families of fallen first responders, whose unwavering courage and resilience inspire us all.

On the campaign trail:

On Tuesday, I joined the Northumberland County Republican Committee for their petition signing event and monthly meeting. It was a great opportunity to kick off the beginning of petitions to get us on the ballot. The meeting was held at the great Americus Hose Company in Sunbury along with State Senator Lynda Culver and State Representatives Joanne Stehr and Mike Stender.

After our stop in Sunbury, we headed to Danville to meet with the Montour County Republican Committee to discuss my priorities and the committee's upcoming events and plans. Thank you for having us.

On Wednesday, I met up in Luzerne County with my good friends, U.S. Senate candidate Dave McCormick, Brenda Pugh, and State Rep Aaron Kaufer. The event was held in support of Dave's U.S. Senate campaign.

On Thursday, I was glad to speak at the PA Future Fund event hosted by Mr. Bob Asher. Many great leaders and business people from across Pennsylvania joined us. 

We stopped in Bradford County for a petition signing event. I want to thank our great friend Diane Elliot for collecting 80 signatures already. Thank you, Diane!

On Saturday, we attended Susquehanna County's Lincoln Day Breakfast. Joining me at the event was State Treasurer Stacy Garrity, endorsed Attorney General candidate Dave Sunday, State Rep Jonathan Fritz, and County Commissioners Alan Hall and Dave Darrow. Thank you to the Susquehanna County Republican Committee and chairwoman Donna Cosmello.

In sad news, Marion O’Malley and Tom left the Susquehanna Lincoln Day event and were involved in an accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with them both. 

On Saturday afternoon, we attended the Early Bird Sports Expo with State Senator Lynda Culver, State Representative Robert Leadbeter, and the Columbia County Republican Committee.

Today, I was in Schuylkill County for a petition signing event with State Senator Dave Argall and State Rep Tim Twardzik. It was held at Vito’s in St. Clair, home of some of the best Italian food in the area. Thank you to all who attended.

Finally, I want to take a moment to remember the two Navy SEALs we lost this past week in a raid in the Arabian Sea. Special Operator First Class Christopher J. Chambers and Special Operator Second Class Nathan Gage Ingram lost their lives fighting for our nation. We owe them our gratitude and thanks. 

Additionally, three American service members were killed and "many" were wounded in a drone strike in Jordan this weekend. These deaths were attributed to an attack by Iran-backed militia groups. We owe our brave members of our armed forces our thanks and continued prayers.

Please join me in sending our prayers and thoughts to each of these brave soldier families, friends, and loved ones.

We look forward to catching up with you next week. God Bless, and see you soon,

Dan Meuser
