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.

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 »

Talking Health Care, Jobs, and the Economy at the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of joining the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce to discuss health care and its impact on jobs and the economy. I heard from members of the community about the real-world consequences of Obamacare and how businesses continue to struggle navigating the new regulations.   Read more »

Democrats demoralize women for 2014 vote

The Democrats new battle cry: We need women!

“We do better when we field the whole team. When women succeed, America succeeds,” Obama said at an annual forum sponsored by the Democratic National Committee.

The Democrats have tried to excite Mexicans and blacks, but to no avail. Women are the next logical step.   Read more »

New NRCC Web Video: Stuck In Neutral

WASHINGTON – Today, the National Republican Congressional Committee released a new web video titled “Stuck In Neutral.” Two years left in President Obama’s term, his presidency has devolved into nothing more than misstatements, political games, and ridiculing opponents.

That’s not change we can believe in. America is a country without a real leader—someone willing to stand up and tackle the issues people care about: creating jobs, securing the border, and replacing our failed healthcare system

Exposing the EPA’s Plan to Regulate Your Power Plant

This week, I questioned top officials from the White House and the EPA about one of the most aggressive new government programs in our country’s history. The cornerstone of the White House's sweeping Climate Action Plan is EPA’s power plant regulation. Extending well beyond the power plants themselves, this rule will increase the cost of electricity and the cost of doing business. EPA’s mandates will be difficult for states to meet even under ideal circumstances. If energy prices or energy demand escalate, the costs of meeting those mandates will soar and American families will be forced to pay the bill.

Until this Administration can propose a detailed strategy, tell us

Obama’s Agenda: Arming and Training Syrian Rebels While Disarming American Citizens

I find it interesting that so many of our legislators today support the idea of arming and training Syrian Rebels -  many of whom are the same people who support more gun control laws here at home.

Arming and training foreign troops has not worked so well for us, so why do Obama and his democrat buddies think this time will be different?   Read more »

ISIS poses a grave threat to our freedom and security

It is a sad reality that President Obama refuses to come to Congress with a clear strategy to destroy ISIS and protect our U.S. security interests. It is my hope that Republicans can convince him to propose a clear plan, consistent with the Constitution, to keep Americans safe, and that it is not laden with impractical contingencies, such as resolving the Syrian civil war, reaching political reconciliation in Iraq or achieving “consensus” in the international community.   Read more »

The Senate Being Used As Incumbent Protection Program

More than a decade since I first came to this chamber, the United States Senate, it has become unrecognizable…Unfortunately, this chamber has devolved into one where not much gets done and when there are votes, they are frequently show-votes with the election clearly in mind.

We've had an experiment in big government over the last six years, and you know what? It hasn't worked out very well. Unemployment rates remain high;
