Michael Malice has read North Korean books that no other Westerner had read. He has a unique insight into this bizarre regime. And he’s one of my most popular guests. Join us for a great conversation!   Read more »

Sen. Cruz Introduces Bills to Protect National Security, Support Men and Women in Uniform

On Thursday, I introduced two bills to protect our national security and support our men and women in uniform. First, the Expatriate Terrorist Act (ETA), will prevent Americans who are fighting alongside a terrorist organization overseas from reentering the United States and recognizes such actions as a renunciation of U.S. citizenship.

Texas House Panel finds that worker misclassification “compromises free markets” and promotes “lawlessness”

A report from a bipartisan panel of Texas lawmakers says companies that pretend their employees are independent subcontractors are undermining free markets and encouraging illegal immigration, among other serious problems. The practice of worker misclassification happens when an employer intentionally skirts the law by paying workers as independent subcontractors when they meet the legal definition of employees and should be paid as such.   Read more »

Republicans Cave on Abortion Bill on 42nd Anniversary of Roe vs Wade

Yesterday, on the 42nd anniversary of Roe vs Wade, Congress was scheduled to vote on an important abortion bill the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act”, H.R.36. It did not happen. We can sugar coat the fact that the bill was pulled because it wasn’t written with enough consideration for rape victims or because the weak Republicans in office thought the party would lose women voters for the presidential election in 2016.

A Historic “New Day in Texas”

Due to a schedule change, I was able to return from Scotland early enough to attend the Texas inauguration of Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and Governor Greg Abbott in Austin. Clear blue skies and a warm sun made a perfect day for the inauguration, held at the South Entrance to the stately pink granite Texas Capitol building.

Tuesday January 20, 2015 – Changing of the Guard

First the Lt. Governor, then the Governor were sworn in and both gave speeches to a crowd estimated at 17,000 on the steps and grounds of the Capitol. At the end, one of the largest barbeques in history was served in a spectacularly efficient manner—almost no lines!!! Only in Texas!

Time For President to Listen To The American People, Approve Keystone

It’s ironic in a lot of ways because the President came to the people's House to give his State of the Union speech. That's the House of Representatives. But his speech was anything but ‘for the people.’

At least to my mind, reality wasn’t what was driving the President's remarks. If it was, he would have focused on the biggest concerns that Americans have right now.   Read more »

Protecting our Most Fundamental Right - Life

On the anniversary of the tragic Roe v. Wade ruling, thousands of Americans flocked to Washington, D.C. to participate in the annual March for Life. 

Our Great Nation was founded upon the idea that ALL people are ‘endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.’ And the first right mentioned in our Declaration of Independence is that of Life.

Allow Highly Skilled Immigration and Boost the Economy

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) just introduced the bipartisan Immigration Innovation Act (I-Squared), which aims to liberalize and expand the immigration system for highly skilled workers.

As virtually all the research shows, attracting more high-skilled immigrants will stimulate economic growth and job creation by boosting innovation and productivity.   Read more »

The November Memo and the State of the Union

The President addressed the Union Tuesday night, promising more government, more spending, and more taxes.

Obviously the President did not read the November memo from America. The majority of the Union rejected the President's policies in the election of persistent Big Government.

King George III and the British imposed the Stamp Act 250 years ago this year. The colonists decried the new tax.   Read more »
