Individual Mandate Struck Down

The "second highest court in the land" — the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia — just struck a BIG blow to Obamacare.

The court ruled that the Obama Administration ignored the text of the law, and improperly extended Obamacare subsidies and the individual mandate to States that have not created state exchanges.

The effect of this ruling, if enforced, is that the individual mandate is struck down in 36 States, including Texas.   Read more »

Honduran Mother Explains Why She Illegally Entered US with Her Child

FALFURRIAS, Texas—Shortly after her capture following a police chase, a Honduran mother explained why she put her ten-year-old son’s life in danger by bringing him to Texas via human smuggling. Deputies with the Brooks County Sheriff’s Department discovered the van packed with about 25 people shortly before they were to be dropped off by the coyote for a three to four day march through dry desert-like ranch lands with temperatures approaching the one hundred degrees.   Read more »

True Wisdom Is Greek To Political Strategists

In an online exchange, a friend explained that Democrats win because they embrace and celebrate their base, while Republicans denounce, disown and conspire against theirs. Absolutely. And why is that? It's because mass-media and education are largely amenable, to say the least, with the agenda of the Democrat base. And they are largely hostile to the conservative Republican base. And for these people, EVERYTHING is political.

Persecuted, The Movie - A Faith Based Movie

Persecuted is a timely movie depicting some of the challenges Christians are experiencing today. While it is ‘fiction,’ Christians can certainly identify with the basic story line. A US Senator tries to pressure John Luther, founder of Truth, a ministry based on God’s word, into supporting legislature that would ‘unite’ all religions into one government controlled ‘church’.   Read more »

Pro-Life and the Anti-Immigrant Movement

The organizations that are benefiting from the illegal surge on our southern border are those that want to radically change America to anti-immigration, which leads to population control. During the Republican state convention, there was chaos caused by a few ‘radical’ groups that many try to deny. The one thing that seems to connect these ‘radical’ people is NUMBERSUSA, FAIR and CIS. While I have known about these groups, it never occurred to me how much headway they had made in infiltrating conservative groups.

Democrats Declare War on the Catholic Church

The Democrats have waged war on the religious liberty, particularly the Catholic Church. Forty-six Senate Democrats are cosponsoring legislation to reverse the Supreme Court’s Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision and force businesses and religious non-profits, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, to authorize abortion-inducing drugs for employees or pay millions in faith fines.   Read more »

Palin And West Are Wrong Calling For Impeachment Before November

Once again Conservatives are letting their impatience and frustration with the dictatorial powers of the Obama administration lead them to call for actions that cannot happen so long as the Democrats control the Senate.

Sarah Palin and Col. Allen West, two conservative leaders that I hold in high regard, are making a BIG MISTAKE calling for Impeachment of the President before the November elections. Obama can never be removed from office so long as the Senate is controlled by Harry Reid and the Democrat majority. Winning control of the Senate should be our first and last priority.   Read more »

Sen. Cruz: Israel’s fight against radical Islamic terrorism, and the Iranian regime that supports it, is our fight as well

Yesterday, I spoke on the Senate floor about the urgent need to reverse the longstanding and misguided Obama-Clinton-Kerry policy towards Israel, laid out in a speech by Obama advisor Philip Gordon in Tel Aviv last week. Rather than pressuring Israel to make even more security concessions to the Palestinians while terrorist rockets rain down from Gaza, I argued that the United States should support Israel’s efforts to construct aggressive defensive measures such as the security barrier and the Iron Dome missile defense system that have made Israeli civilians safer.   Read more »

Congressman Neugebauer Bill to Reduce Windstorm Damage and Save Lives

The House of Representatives voted yesterday on my bill to reduce windstorm damage across America. It promotes research to help save lives, reduce injuries, and lessen communities’ damage from windstorms. Those of us who have experienced these disasters – like the 1970 storm I experienced in Lubbock that took 26 lives – know their devastating effects. And the U.S. averages about 1300 tornadoes a year.   Read more »
