My Opening Talk at Mises University 2014

The Mises Institute’s week-long Mises University instructional program for students was the most significant academic event of my life as a student when I first attended it in 1993. It’s still going strong even today, and last night, for the second year in a row, I delivered the opening talk. The title I was given was “The Role of Austrian Economics in the Liberty Movement.” If you enjoy the talk and want to learn more about Austrian economics, check out my LearnAustrianEconomics.com resource. (And to attend as a virtual student, click here.)

Congressman Sessions Participates in International Management Facility Association’s 9th Annual Public Policy Forum

Thursday morning I participated in the International Management Facility Association’s 9th Annual Public Policy Forum. I had the opportunity to speak with individuals from across the country about the necessity of getting Washington out of the way of the free market so that it can thrive and grow.   Read more »

GM Car Coffins

GM has experienced some bad press, because they manufacture death traps. They paid back $40 billion on a $50 billion loan from the American taxpayer, netting $10 billion, and what do they do: build rolling mechanical coffins.

So the announcement that GM has issued another 6 recalls, as reported in this video, is not a surprise.   Read more »

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.

Lois Lerner backup tapes found

Studying Liberals as long as I have, I have learned quite well the smell of a RAT! The Lois Lerner backup tapes have been found. I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that her emails were never lost. So did they use this time to scrub them? Possibly. I think they have just decided who’s going down, and the calls have been made. One more trial balloon before the IRS starts chopping heads.   Read more »

We Will Not Conform: Portrait of a Home School Family

We will not conform. We will not conform. We will not conform. No, it isn't a chant or a mantra. It's a statement of fact. Something that we as grassroots activists should be used to by now. How about another group of folks who could be considered full-time protesters? Another group of people who might be used to not conforming for even longer than the tea party groups have been around.

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 »

Simplifying the Tax Code for Families

As a parent and grandparent, I know there’s nothing more rewarding than building a family. But I also know having kids can come at a high cost. This week, the House will vote on two bills to streamline our current tax code to reduce the cost of starting a family and sending your kids to college. The Child Tax Credit Improvement Act of 2014 adjusts the child tax credit to account for recent inflation and eliminates our current tax code’s marriage penalty

Senator Cornyn Introduces Bill To Boost Transparency Of Endangered Species Listings

Today, I introduced legislation to dramatically boost transparency of the Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service’s listing process for endangered species. This legislation stands as the Senate companion to H.R. 4315, introduced by U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings, Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee. The legislation would require the Secretaries of the Interior and Commerce departments to make the best scientific and commercial data publicly available on the Internet as it relates to future listings and de-listings under the Endangered Species Act.   Read more »

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 »
