Diane Black: Must stand up to North Korea's missile tests

"It is our responsibility in Congress to protect our citizens and hold North Korea accountable for their actions. This latest ballistic missile launch continues North Korea's alarming escalation of aggressive acts, and we will not tolerate it," said Congressman Black.

David Kustoff: Our allies don't respect us and our enemies don't fear us

Under President Obama, the influence of the US has waned. Our allies don't respect us and our enemies don't fear us. This must change.

Israel is THE democracy in the Middle East. If Israel fails, democracy in the Middle East fails. The Iran Deal is a threat to our interest and Israel's interest. We must always support Israel.

Gordon Ball: Promote human rights as cornerstone of US foreign policy

America's foreign policy should be focused on advancing peace and prosperity here at home and abroad. From advancing nuclear non-proliferation to eliminating conditions that breed terrorism, to combating global public health challenges, I will continue to advocate for policies that promote human rights and democratic policies that are the cornerstone of American foreign policy. Let me be clear: I will never advocate nation-building by America.
