Supreme Court Decides to Protect Religious Freedom

I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby to rebuke President Obama’s overreach and protect religious freedom. 

I am very glad the Supreme Court once again rebuked President Obama’s overreach and decided to protect religious freedom. Today’s decision is a win for my constituents in West Texas and the American people. The federal government should never force hardworking small business owners to violate their religious beliefs in order to comply with the beliefs of bureaucrats in Washington.

America – Imagine the World without Her: Countering Progressivism’s Attack on the very Idea of America!

Having met Dinesh D'Souza briefly, having seen his first movie 2016 and read that book, and now having seen the new movie America—Imagine the World without Her twice, I could hardly wait to read the book the movie was based on. I was expecting a few arrows directed at Obama, but although on target, those were quite limited. Rather than a typical political treatise, this book is much,

Hobby Lobby Decision a Victory for Religious Freedom

Today is a victory for religious freedom across America. The Supreme Court rightly affirmed that the Obama administration cannot require family-owned companies to provide a product or service in violation of their religious beliefs. It upholds the idea that companies can have a conscience.

There are many reasons to oppose Obamacare, but the contraceptives mandate strikes at the core of

Humanitarian Crisis At The Border

The state that gives Obama so much ‘trouble’ is the state receiving the illegals. Illigals mostly from Central America are arriving by the thousands through the Mexico-Texas border and are causing havoc as Texas officials try to deal with the harrowing dilemma. Governor Rick Perry announced that the state is providing $1.3 million of taxpayer money per week until the end of the year.

Obama "Doubling Down" on Governing by Fiat

Recent comments from President Obama and White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest indicate that the White House will continue to bypass Congress and address the humanitarian crisis on our southern border using executive actions:

During a week when the Supreme Court unanimously rebuked the President’s overreach, you would think he would show some humility and work with Congress on a solution to the crisis on the border, one that he created. Sadly, he appears to be doubling down on his efforts to govern by fiat.   Read more »

Searching for IRS Answers

Last Monday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing to question Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen on the agency losing two years’ worth of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s e-mails central to the Congressional investigation into the IRS' political targeting. As part of its investigation the Oversight Committee issued subpoenas for several IRS documents,

Politico Piles On Davis Campaign Woes

Democrat gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ campaign failures appear to be obvious to everyone but Wendy Davis. Even left of center media outlets like Politico are reporting her fall from Democrat rock star to political failure.

“She’s down in the polls by double digits,” Politico’s Katie Glueck reported. “And national Democrats have all but written off her race.” While they tried to couch their comments in the kindest possible

Vietnam Foolishness Redux

For many decades, The United States has been by far the most assertive and powerful force for freedom and against oppression on planet earth. That requires a cultural ethic of decency and a dynamic free economy that can produce the wealth and technology to assert strength against oppressive and inhumane forces.

That America established both that benevolent intervention on behalf of others and the power to assert was

This Week in U.S. House Legislation

The House passed three pieces of legislation this week - H.R. 6, The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act H.R. 3301, the, North American Energy Infrastructure Act and Lowering Gasoline Prices to Fuel an America that Works Act – in an effort to unleash American energy in order to drive down gas prices and make our country less reliant on foreign sources of energy. Each of these bills would improve America’s energy policies by cutting through bureaucratic red tape, promoting job creation, and expanding the production of our natural resources.   Read more »
