Following reports that students throughout the country are losing their jobs and having their hours restricted because of an ObamaCare requirement, I introduced the Student Job Protection Act.

Improving the VA for our Veterans

Last Wednesday, I voted for H.R. 3230, the Veterans' Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act that passed the House and Senate last week. This bill takes several steps to improving the Veterans Administration (VA) helping to ensure veterans receive the treatment and benefits they earned.   Read more »

With Only Months Until The Election: Why TCR Is Optimistic And Why We Still Have Concerns

For conservatives in 2014 it is the best of times, but potentially it could be a hugely disappointing time.

First, the reasons for optimism:

  1. Nationalization of the election at this point is a huge plus for conservatives. President Obama's approval rating continues to decline and is now at a 53% disapproval and currently is a drag on Democrats nationally.

Obama IS creating jobs…for TERRORISTS

Need a job? Want to work in a vibrant environment, with lots of benefits? If you’ve been thinking about relocating to find work, Iraq is the place for you.

Obama is living up to his promise, as jobs abound in Iraq. Terrorist group ISIS has lots of openings!

If you are a mechanic, why not leave the oppression of America and head for sunny sandy Iraq, where you can work on the latest in military hardware, left when Obama abandoned

Celebrating our Military for Purple Heart Day

I’m thankful every day for our military service members and the veterans that have fought to keep us safe. And Thursday was a special day to commemorate specifically those who were wounded or killed in combat while defending America abroad. Purple Heart Day celebrates the 1.9 million U.S. troops who have earned the Purple Heart Medal, including the almost 50,000 men and women in uniform who have received a Purple Heart for their service in Iraq and Afghanistan. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who have made such great sacrifices for our country, and the families of all Purple Heart recipients.

Right here in Lubbock, we’re taking every opportunity to honor those who have served. You may remember that Texas Tech University was recently named a “Purple Heart University” for its

Protecting Israel and Escalating Violence in Iraq

We’ve all heard about the violence in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas. As Israel tries to defend itself against thousands of rockets fired by the terrorist group Hamas, death tolls continue to grow, and communities have been devastated. I support Israel’s efforts to destroy the Hamas-built tunnel system they’ve been using to traffic terrorists and weapons into Gaza, and I fully support Israel’s right to defend itself from terrorism.   Read more »

Another Obama Foreign Policy Mistake!

Obama's Mideast policy can be classified as disaster jointly administered by John Kerry, who shows why the voters were right to reject him in 2004, and Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, who left office before her policy misjudgment became evident.

What is amazing is that Obama's foreign policy team was warned of this possibility, but there was no contingency plans ready, nor was Obama prepared to arm the Kurds who are presently out match by Isis armory, much of which stolen from the Iraqi’s army.   Read more »

From Bombings to Golf

Never has a president shown so much range, going from ordering a few strikes of ISIS to golfing.

Four hours after ordering another military strike on ISIS targets, Obama was golfing with friends on Martha’s Vineyard.

We’ve talked often about the quantity of Obama’s vacations, but the timing can be amazing.   Read more »

Bruce Braley is Just Another Democrat Bully

Bruce Braley's chicken dispute is demonstrating how Democrats view their fellow citizens and to what extent they will go to in order to remind others that they are the ruling class. In a recent episode dealing with his neighbor's wandering chickens, Braley showed a heavily leaded political touch that could end his political career in Iowa.

The congressman was the heavy favorite to keep the Iowa seat Democratic before a tape surfaced showing him at a fundraising event badmouthing his fellow Republican Senator,
