In a broad foreign policy speech Tuesday at a Washington, D.C-based think tank, US Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri called for the US to reshape its strategy in the Indo-Pacific region to counter what he called "a martial, expansionist China." He described China's drive for regional hegemony as a "clear and present danger" and the greatest threat to American national security in decades.

The timing is particularly acute, he said, as China tries to exert more power over Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley is taking aim at YouTube after The New York Times reported it was recommending videos of minors to users who watch sexually suggestive content.

The GOP senator wants to ban video-sharing services like YouTube from queuing up videos of minors to users — which he said would “place children’s safety over profits and pedophiles.”

Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft has ended an investigation into whether U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley used the attorney general’s office to boost his Senate bid, concluding there’s not “reasonable trustworthy information that an offense has been committed.”
