Joy Cometh in the Morning

I spoke at the Values Voter Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. Friday. In his remarks, I reflected on the struggles we see in the world, in America, and in our personal lives and how, by keeping faith, we should be encouraged brighter days are ahead.

See the transcript below:

I'm so grateful, that y'all are here today standing up for our country. You know, the Word tells us, “Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning”.

Congressman Lamar Smith Responds to Attorney General Holder Resignation

I released the following statement in response to news that Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning as head of the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Of all the executive branch agencies, the Department of Justice is the one that should remain above politics. Yet, President Obama has repeatedly directed Attorney General Holder to ignore and undermine current laws. Under this administration, numerous scandals have plagued the DOJ, including the execution and cover-up of Operation Fast & Furious.

Defeating ISIL: Patriotism Over Politics

There are a lot of members of Congress, including me, that do not agree with the President’s politics and think his Syria plan is too little too late, but in a time of war we must support our Commander-in-Chief, it’s what we do in America.

So Who Does Congressman Culberson Represent: Constituents or Colleagues?

"Working in Congress is like standing under Niagara Falls"-John Culberson (R) Texas said repeatedly during a town hall meeting on September 22, 2014

Really? Sounds like a problem to me. The button on the pants of the federal government has officially shot off into the atmosphere as the bloat and the sheer girth of government has increased to sizes previously unknown. Houston, we have a problem.

Thankfully we have John Culberson fearlessly representing the good folks of Congressional District 7! Um, scratch that. Thankfully we have John Culberson representing the good folks of Congressional District 7!

Hey Target Executives: Criminals With Guns Don’t Abide by Your Corporate Memos

I don’t shop at Target anymore because they favor criminals over law abiding citizens and seem to think, based on their new policy, that disarming law abiding citizens for the criminals is a way to create a “family friendly” environment.

Just weeks after Target’s new policy that requests gun owners leave their guns at home, there has now been another shooting on Target property.   Read more »

October 3rd: Congressional Youth Advisory Council – EXTENDED APPLICATION DEADLINE

Ten years ago, I created the Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) in order to gain insight from 3rd District high school students and to inspire civic-minded young adults to achieve their full potential. The Council meets approximately twice each school semester. During the CYAC activities, high-achieving students explore the role citizens, lawmakers, experts, and institutions play in a democracy.   Read more »

How is the Political Landscape Shaping Up for the November 2014 Elections?

Obama's tough talk on ISIS won't make a political difference because it still shows no strategy, and, so far, none of his alleged coalition (which recently lost Turkey) is willing to put boots on the ground. The other problem is that if you look closely, it seems Obama wants us to be the Shiite Air Force.

Obama's political impact for November? None.

Wendy Davis' Book Tour shows that her New York publisher is selling her chances to win in November short and wants to sell books while they can.   Read more »
