Tony Geldens: Dutch Resistance Fighter, American Patriot

Tony Geldens was a Dutch boy when on May 10, 1940; the Nazis invaded and occupied the Netherlands. Persecution of the Jews began immediately by the occupiers. Jews were required to wear yellow stars of David on their clothing. Jews were shot, beat, and sent to concentration camps.

Tony and a few of his Boy Scout friends joined the Dutch resistance. Tony began a 4-year career of being the Robin Hood of the Netherlands. He would steal supplies and food from the Nazis and give them to local Jews and citizens, much to the risk of his own safety.

Our Veterans Deserve a VA That Works for Them

I was deeply troubled and frustrated by the lack of quality care and accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Our nation’s veterans, who have sacrificed so much in defense of our freedom, deserve a VA that works for them, and provides the best quality care. To make sure we meet the needs of our heroes, I was proud to support today’s bill, Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, that brings some much-needed reforms to the VA healthcare system.

This bill improves access to care by allowing our veterans to seek private care if they do not live near a VA facility or cannot

Sen. Cruz: Israel’s Iron Dome Protects our Ally, Protects Us

In the last several weeks over 2,500 rockets rained down on the nation of Israel. 80 percent of the population has had to flee what they're doing and run to bomb shelters to hide: moms, dads, and children. When the alarm goes off, they have sometimes 10, 15 seconds to get to a bomb shelter. Imagine if the same thing were happening here in America.

Even as the fighting in Gaza grabs the headlines, we have to keep our eyes on the far more serious danger of a nuclear Iran. The threat of a nuclear-armed Iran would make Hamas and their rockets seem like child's play and our support

Poe Statement On NFL’S “Punishment” For RB Ray Rice

Recently, a video emerged of Ray Rice, a Baltimore Ravens’ running back, dragging his unconscious then-fiancée out of an elevator after allegedly punching her in the face several times. He was charged with third-degree aggravated assault; however, the prosecutors later dropped the charge after a plea deal was reached. The NFL’s response? A pathetic two game suspension. The league has harsher punishments for “offenses” such as eating unapproved foods or taking fertility drugs without prior approval.   Read more »

Guilty: San Antonio Man Convicted In Child Prostitution Case

A San Antonio man was convicted on July 23 for his role in a prostitution ring that involved at least two under-aged girls. The man is the second person to be convicted in this scheme which resulted in federal charges being filed against three men and one woman.

Malcolm Deandre Copeland, aged 22, was convicted by a federal jury for his role in prostituting two minor females last year according to a press released obtained by Breitbart Texas from Texas Attorney General (AG) Greg Abbott.

The Hungry Russian Bear

In the sky above eastern Ukraine, a surface-to-air missile was launched, and it destroyed a Malaysian civilian airliner. The dastardly deed killed – rather, murdered ---298 people. It appears the missile and launcher were Russian. The individuals shooting down the plane were so-called “Russian backed separatists” in Ukraine. Apparently the crash, which is a crime scene on the ground, is controlled by pro-Russian sympathizers, and it has been compromised by unknown malcontents.

It seems to me the Russian emperor Putin--- the Napoleon of Siberia-- has his pitiful, complicit fingerprints all over the Lusitania-type incident.

On Heels of House Vote against Trafficking, 63 Members of Congress Urge Attorney General Holder to Crack Down On Buyers

WASHINGTON, DC—This week the House of Representatives sent a clear, bipartisan message that America’s children are not for sale by passing a number of bills dealing with child trafficking. However, not a single one of those bills deals with the people who buy children for sex. And during a recent nationwide operation targeting sex trafficking, no buyers of underage children were arrested. While those bills, and the sting, are all necessary and should be fully supported, the root of the problem cannot be addressed until both

Defending Our Veterans’ Religious Freedom

Just after we found out about the VA covering up wait times for veterans, we found out they’re also covering up Christian symbols in VA chapels. We’ve heard reports that the VA has hidden a statue of Jesus Christ, a cross, and an altar in order to promote the appearance of ‘religious neutrality.’ This dishonors our veterans and our longstanding history of religious freedom.   Read more »

Governor Rick Perry - Time to Secure the Border

“If there is no national security you cannot have that without border security.” - Gov. Rick Perry

Texas Governor Rick Perry held a Press Conference on July 21, 2014, and in case you missed it, I am providing a link if you care to listen. His message was clear, “I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor. We are too good a country for that to occur.”
