May 5, 2024

Dear Floridian:

This week, the country witnessed violent and hateful anti-Israel protests on campuses all over the country, including in Florida. While I adamantly support students’ rights to free speech and to peacefully protest while expressing their viewpoints, threats and harassment against individuals of a specific religious faith is unacceptable. Antisemitism has no place in America.

I’m deeply concerned about how the federal government is pressuring financial institutions for data on Americans using purchase data terms like “America First,” “Trump,” and “MAGA.” I joined the Ways and Means Committee to address Biden’s Treasury Secretary Yellen regarding these concerning surveillance practices targeting Americans based on their political beliefs. 

I also joined the Weaponization subcommittee to expose the Biden White House’s coercion of Amazon. The evidence suggests a clear attempt by the federal government to manipulate private entities for political gain.

Lastly, it was an honor to host the FL-17 Service Academy Fair this week and address our district’s young leaders who are interested in becoming future military leaders. 

To receive frequent updates about the work I’m doing in Congress, I encourage you to visit my website, like my Facebook page, follow me on Rumble, follow me on Gettr, follow me on Truth Social, follow me on Instagram, and follow me on Twitter. 

Keep reading for the full update. 

Thank you and God bless,

 

 

Congressman Greg Steube

 

 

Joining The Ways and Means Committee to Examine Biden’s Treasury Secretary on Americans’ Data Privacy

At the Ways and Means Committee, I addressed Biden’s Treasury Secretary Yellen regarding FINCEN’s concerning surveillance practices targeting conservative Trump supporters. It’s deeply troubling that the federal government is pressuring financial institutions for data using terms like “America First,” “Trump,” and “MAGA.” This intrusion into Americans’ private financial data based on political beliefs is unacceptable. If the government seeks this information, it must follow proper legal procedures and obtain a warrant. We need to stand firm in defending Americans’ privacy rights and ensuring accountability in government actions.

Joining the Weaponization Subcommittee to Discuss the Biden White House’s Coercion of Amazon

I joined the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government to expose troubling revelations: Biden’s White House officials have been exerting undue pressure on Amazon, by coercing the tech giant to conform to political agendas. This revelation not only raises serious questions about governmental overreach, but also highlights the concerning erosion of corporate independence. Despite the denials from the administration, evidence suggests a clear attempt to manipulate private entities for political gain.This alarming behavior cannot be swept under the rug. As your representative, it’s my duty to ensure transparency and accountability in government actions.

Hosting the FL-17 Service Academy Fair

I hosted the FL-17 Service Academy Fair this weekend, where students from across our district gathered to explore opportunities for service to our nation. As your representative and as a former Army officer, witnessing the enthusiasm and dedication of our young leaders to our country was truly inspiring. I extend my gratitude to the service academy representatives, Senator Rick Scott’s team, and the Sarasota Military Academy for their contributions to this event. I look forward to soon nominating a class of impressive students to our nation’s service academies!

“When pressed by Steube on the Treasury’s suggestion that banks look up search terms like ‘MAGA’ and ‘Trump’ to identify extremism, she responded: ‘It’s a way of trying to narrow the scope of search for individuals who, based on other information available to the financial institutions, may have been guilty of illegal behavior.’”
