“I’m Running Because Joe Biden Brought Me Here” – Former Intelligence Officer Matt Shoemaker Is Running for Congress in Ohio’s 7th District


Matthew J. Shoemaker is a Former Intelligence Officer, Defense Intelligence Agency Lieutenant Junior Grade, and member of the U.S. Navy Reserve.

Matt is running for Congress in Ohio’s 7th District. The district is currently represented by Republican Bob Gibbs and voted for Trump in 2020 by a margin of 65% to 33% for Sleepy Joe.

Matt told The Gateway Pundit that he decided to run for Congress because of Joe Biden. “I’m running because Joe Biden brought me here. He confuses stubbornness with strength. He attacks our constitutional liberties and makes the world less safe by appeasing our enemies. All the while we have silent, invisible, weak people in office who should be representing us but aren’t doing their duty. We need a new generation willing to fight for what we believe in.”

Matt’s story is compelling and impressive.

Matt has this to say about US foreign policy.


  • It is past time to investigate the government of China and its role in the Covid-19 outbreak and the cover up by the State.

  • We must end China’s hold on critical supply chains. America First means bringing back manufacturing of silicon chips, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, and other key industries back to the American worker.

  • The United States should require American universities to disclose all Chinese Communist Party (CCP) government involvement in funding of Confucius Institutes, professors and researchers.

  • End labelling China as a “developing country” and demand they pay into the United Nations and other international organizations as the world’s second largest economy.

  • The United States should stand by Taiwan. As a key ally in the region, the US should enhance ties with Taiwan and continue to support Taiwan’s democratically elected government.


  • Peace through strength. It works.

    We must continue to invest in military technology innovation and we must rebuild the American military to win wars, not prioritize woke gender and diversity targets.


  • Continue to secure and build the border wall which has proven to be safe and effective at stopping the flow of illegal immigrants and COVID-19 across the border.

  • Pass into federal law President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy requiring that illegal immigrants flooding into America must remain in Mexico while their cases are processed.

  • Empower and properly fund Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs & Border Protection (CBP) so officers have the necessary resources to keep Americans safe.


  • Hold President Biden, civilian and military leaders accountable for the catastrophic surrender and loss of life in Afghanistan.

We need more courageous and outspoken Republicans like Matt Shoemaker in Congress.
