Wednesday was a difficult day for The American Independent News Network, which is the larger entity that operates The Iowa Independent. Our chief executive and founder announced two of our sister sites would close and their content would be moved to The American Independent.
BRUCE BRALEY RELEASE — As US involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan ends, it’s more important than ever that our nation works to address the challenges faced by the men and women who fought there.
DAVE LOEBSACK RELEASE — Veterans Day is an opportunity to reflect on the service of generations of veterans and to honor the sacrifices they and their families have made so that we may live in peace and freedom here at home.
BILL NORTHEY RELEASE — Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey today commented on the Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. The report is released weekly from April through October.
REPUBLICAN PARTY OF IOWA RELEASE — Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Matt Strawn today made the following statement after the Nevada GOP approved a date of February 4, 2012 for the Nevada Caucuses.
TOM LATHAM RELEASE — It was a beautiful clear Tuesday morning. I awoke that day already in a somber mood — long before I had heard the first news reports of that fateful day. A memorial service was to be held that morning for the former Chaplin of the House of Representatives, and my good friend, Reverend James Ford. Pastor Ford served faithfully for many years as a trusted spiritual guide to Members of Congress while they were away from home serving their constituents in Washington.
STEVE KING RELEASE — On or near this anniversary of the tragic date of September 11, 2001, as a nation we look book on that day. We all remember where we were at that moment in history when the tragic attack took place on the Twin Towers in New York, on the Pentagon, and the plane that crashed in the fields of Pennsylvania. Since that time, this nation has gone through a lot of tests and a lot of trials. But immediately we pulled together as a people. We became one people; unified, lined up against the enemies even before we knew who our enemies were who had attacked us on that day.
BRUCE BRALEY RELEASE — Ten years ago, America suffered an unimaginable act of terror. We watched as planes crashed into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and in rural Pennsylvania, and prayed for the well-being of friends and strangers alike. Countless Americans showed selfless courage that day—from the first responders to the volunteers, and all the victims who lost their lives.
