Waltz Lands Intelligence and Foreign Relations Committed Assignments

JANUARY 24, 2023

Florida Rep. Mike Waltz (R) has released a statement announcing his committee assignments in the 118th Congress.  The Florida Republican announced that he will serve on the House Foreign Relations Committee (HFAC), the House Armed Services Committee (HASC), and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSI).

By joining the House Foreign Relations Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Waltz will further expand his role on national security matters.

In a statement, the Florida lawmaker shared his enthusiasm for the work ahead, affirming that he will continue working “on the House Armed Services Committee in a Republican-led majority that will allow us to better equip our military, counter the threats of the Chinese Communist Party and other global adversaries, and refocus the military away from woke priorities and back to winning wars.”

Waltz also shared that he is focused on expanding his "work on national security matters by serving on the House Foreign Relations Committee and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence."

"It’s critical we thoroughly investigate the Biden Administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and hold those accountable for the killing of 13 U.S. service members and leaving thousands of Americans and allies behind enemy lines," he warned, adding that "Congress must also work to ensure the Intelligence Community remains focused on countering espionage efforts of foreign adversaries and to ensure political motives are not factored in their decision making."

The committee assignments come after a battle in the House over who should be Speaker of the House. While Waltz supported California Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R) for the role, numerous Republicans dissented, and it led to over 15 votes for McCarthy to be elected.

Waltz has been a vocal critic of the Biden administration, making numerous calls for the administration to be investigated over the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and Waltz has also called on military use to address drug cartels at the border.

Called for investigating Biden. What did he have to say about Trump crime spree?

The military is an authoritarian socialist system if you think about it. People are paid and their livelihoods are maintained through redistribution. Class differences in general are minimal. There are strict rules and regulations governing everything you can think of and authority is not really to be questioned in most circumstances. However, this organization is used to protect the rich in America from outside forces who would plunder this wealth if not deterred. So a service member protects and if necessary fights for the billionaire in exchange for a portion of his wealth. It's better for the rich to pay a portion than be completely plundered by outside forces. This is the economic dynamic of the military, an authoritarian socialist system protecting the biggest hogs in human history. And when you get out of service it's obvious who you must serve afterwards. Of course, as with everything in America, this is not how service is portrayed or packaged if you will. It's portrayed as service or sacrifice to a collective... which today doesn't exist in more ways than it does.
