Roundtable Discussions With Business Leaders in the District

On Monday I joined Congressman Kenny Marchant and Congressman Marc Veasey at the Irving Chamber Congressional Roundtable to discuss important issues facing the North Texas business community. We had a robust conversation on our efforts to secure the border, the effects of ObamaCare, Social Security reform, and a variety of other issues. I always enjoy talking through important issues with fellow Members of Congress from Texas and I believe that our discussion helped North Texans learn more about our views and work on these critical policy issues.   Read more »

Unleash the Energy Entrepreneurs!

A headline that wind power requires 700 times the land space to produce the same amount of energy than fracked produced natural gas grabbed my attention. This headline sums up the problem with much of the alternative sources of energy: namely the juice equation doesn’t exist when compared to the fossil fuels and shows that we are far from replacing Natural gas, coal or oil when it comes to energy in the next few years   Read more »

Five People who Dems say can replace Hillary in 2016 race

I don’t know what excuse Hillary Clinton will use to bug out of the presidential consideration, but she will eventually do it. It’s because you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Hillary Clinton can’t campaign. Add to this the fact that she has done nothing, and you have a recipe for permanent retirement.   Read more »

Is John Culberson A Jeffersonian-Republican...Or Not?

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie down the second with chains of the constitution so the second will not become legalized versions of the first."-Thomas Jefferson.

I share that with you because the person I'm writing about espouses on his website to BE a Jeffersonian-Republican. This is a direct quote from his website,

Time for a Culberson Birthday Bash, No Time for a Town Hall During August Recess

Happy August recess, Congress! You know it's that time of year again, Congress is on a 'break' from work, that time of year when they finally have a chance to spend time with their constituents and discuss their voting record. Wait, what? What that should read is that Congress will be coming home to fill their coffers with more campaign donations by doling out more empty promises.

That is sadly the case more often than not, and it is the case for my Congressman, John Culberson. If you've been reading any of my posts over the past few years, you know I'm not shy when it comes to sharing Congressman Culberson's voting record, since I have done so several times. Now, what has me most upset is so far I have yet to hear of a town hall meeting to be scheduled for his constituents. What I did get was an invite to a birthday party...wait for it...for HIM.

Texas AG Abbott Demands Real Answers From BLM About Red River Land Grab

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott responded to the Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) demanding real answers to his previous questions about the potential land grab along the Red River border between Texas and Oklahoma. On April 22, General Abbott told Breitbart Texas he was sending a letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze demanding answers about the land grab reported the day before by this writer. On June 19, Kornze responded to the letter without specifically answering any of Abbotts specific questions.   Read more »

EPA Hides Truth about Climate Regulations

Today, I sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy criticizing the agency’s limited analysis of its climate regulations and requesting more comprehensive, independent analysis before the agency moves forward.

For too long the EPA has hidden the truth from the American people. In order to regain public trust, the agency should rely on robust, objective and well-grounded technical analysis of its climate regulations. Flaws in recent EPA analyses amplify concerns about the real impacts of these regulations. Americans deserve an opportunity to see the facts.

Last week the Government Accountability Office released a report highlighting a pattern of shoddy EPA analysis. It was revealed that EPA relied

What Next? Obama’s Face on Mount Rushmore?

People in Willingboro, New Jersey are ticked off.

It seems the city council there has decided to remove John F. Kennedy’s name from the Kennedy Center and replace it with Obama’s name. If the city council in this town is so in love with Obama that they want to honor him by attaching his name to something, why don’t they attach it to something he actually created or accomplished

Let Voters Decide If Streetcars Are Their Desire

One of the topics I hear most about is the proposed streetcar project in San Antonio. During a recent telephone town meeting with hundreds of Bexar County constituents, I decided to gauge their views on the subject. (These were random calls to voters of all political stripes.)

Ninety percent of respondents said they were opposed to the streetcar project. Only 3 percent supported it, and 7 percent were undecided.   Read more »
