Austin Outsider Hopes To Pop The Austin Bubble In Race For Williams’ Senate Seat

The chatter around the Capitol so far about the race for the Texas Senate seat formerly held by Sen. Tommy Williams, R-The Woodlands, has primarily focused on the two House members in the contest: Rep. Steve Toth, R-The Woodlands and Rep. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe. But, a lesser-known candidate by the name of Gordy Bunch, a successful businessman and a member of the equivalent of the city council in The Woodlands, says he’s working hard to get his supporters out and “get ‘er done” in the May 10 special election.

Bunch, who was first elected to The Woodlands Township Board of Directors two years ago, says he’s been able to use his business experience to help create one of the best-running governments in the state. Indeed, The Woodlands has seen taxes decrease and debt has been paid down while services have been expanded.

Sharing With Veterans

Last Week, I hosted the Annual Coastal Bend Veterans Summit in Corpus Christi. I appreciated the opportunity to discuss veteran’s issues with a group a veterans that spanned 7 decades of service. It continues to be clear to me that the VA is not the resource it should be for our veterans.

Gordy Bunch on Port of Beaumont Importance & his Military and Business Experience – Texas Senate District 4 Race

This past Saturday I met up with Gordy Bunch at the Port of Beaumont, Texas. Mr. Bunch is running for Texas State Senate District 4. This will be a special election, which will be held on Saturday, May 10th due to the current State Senator, Tommy Williams, having stepped down. Texas State Senate District 4 goes from Montgomery County, Conroe and The Woodlands, all the way over to Jefferson County, Beaumont and Port Arthur.

Over the next few days, I will create the transcript of the questions I asked, and the answers from Gordy Bunch. That will take a little more time. For now, I wanted to go ahead and post the video highlights, the main topics addressed, and some of the pictures.   Read more »

How to Maximize Our Leverage with Putin

Sometimes it takes a sudden, flagrant breach of the international order to dispel a president’s naïveté about a foreign adversary. The 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan had that effect on President Carter. One can only hope that Russia’s annexation of Crimea will have a similar impact on President Obama.

As recently as September, the president was still trumpeting his Russian “reset” as a success -- which is to say, he was still calling the reset a success even after the Putin-Medvedev regime had (1) brutalized domestic human-rights activists,

The DoD Should Look at Every Penny Before Cutting a Soldier

On Thursday, I spoke at the National Security Action Conference against the Department of Defense’s recent budget decisions, Putin’s aggression in Ukraine, President Maduro’s oppression of Venezuelans’ freedoms, and a nuclear-armed Iran. 

Everyone would agree that there is waste, fraud, and abuse at the Pentagon, like any large bureaucracy…Yesterday I had the opportunity to question Secretary Hagel.
