Greg Abbott

"I think it’s clear that our current immigration system is completely broken. The United States Congress is the authority in this country that has to step up and pass new laws, and we expect them to do their job to improve the immigration system that we have in this country."

We Stand in Solidarity with Israel and Canada

The attacks in Ottawa and Jerusalem yesterday are stark reminders that while radical Islamic terrorism may have originated in the Middle East, it is not confined to that region. Our great and good friends in Canada and Israel were targeted because both countries share the same core principles of tolerance and freedom that we in America hold so dear—and which are hated by the vicious terrorists whose ultimate goal is to destroy us all.   Read more »

President Must Involve Congress on Iran

I issued the following statement in response to a report that the President intends to bypass Congress on a nuclear agreement with Iran.

The American people will not tolerate a President who wheels and deals with a radical regime behind their backs and dodges congressional oversight every chance he gets. Any agreement with Iran to provide further relief from U.S. sanctions must be done in conjunction with Congress in an open and transparent way to ensure it advances America’s national security.   Read more »

How poaching fuels terrorism funding

Half a million dollars. That's how much it cost Osama bin Laden and his band of extremists to carry out the most deadly attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor.

Fast forward 13 years, and bin Laden may be dead, but the threat from Islamic extremists has never been greater. But weapons, surveillance equipment, training, food, lodging and travel all cost money. That suggests that if we want to fight terrorism, then there's one important thing we need to do: Follow the money trail.   Read more »

Breitbart Exclusive Interview: Sen. Cruz Talks Assault on Religious Liberty and Ebola Travel Ban

Senator Ted Cruz said the City of Houston and Mayor Annise Parker have “no legal authority, no constitutional authority and no moral authority” to issue subpoenas to pastors for their sermons and personal communications. The exclusive interview below came shortly after the Senator gathered with some of the top religious leaders in Houston to speak out against this unprecedented attack on religious liberty. During the interview, Cruz also reinforced his “common sense” call for a travel ban on people traveling from countries with an active outbreak of the Ebola virus.   Read more »

Red Sonja’s Judicial Endorsements & No Votes For The 2014 November Election

As we all are aware, there are judges who sit on the bench and follow the law but there are others who try to make the law. As Texans we want our Judiciary to follow the laws of the US and Texas Constitutions and Texas laws provided by the Texas legislative process.   Read more »

Fighting Against Federal Overregulation of Texas Waters

You may remember this last spring when the EPA proposed a rule to expand their jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act of 1972. The law lets them regulate “navigable waters of the United States,” but their proposed rule would expand that to include even runoff ditches and stock ponds on our private property. And for us in Texas, that means severe limits on farming, ranching, and construction. That means more top-down federal regulation that ignores local efforts.   Read more »

UnFair: Exposing the IRS Movie Review

When I first saw the advertisement for Unfair: Exposing the IRS, I was interested, but unsure of the meaning. I thought I knew some of the bad things about the IRS, but was I ever in for a surprise. The words, “Abuse by the IRS”, caused me to remember having been harassed by the IRS personally; and after attending the movie here in Dallas, I was astounded.

Here we live in America, the home of the free and the brave, and this rogue agency, with its huge budget and unlimited resources is deliberately punishing people,

Senator Donna Campbell Texas SD-25

In case you were not aware, Senator Donna Campbell, a double board certified physician in emergency room care and ophthalmology, has an opponent in the November election. He is Daniel Boone, the perpetual liberal whose only purpose is to occupy the ‘Democrat’ space on the ballot. He is promoting himself as a 'moderate' which of course he is not. So while Boone’s only reason is to have someone, anyone running for the Democrats, Senator Campbell has been extremely busy working for the people in Texas Senate District 25.

She takes our Constitution seriously and has been courageous in dealing with situations as the border crisis and the Texas budget. Senator Campbell is vice chair of the Nominations Committee and sits on several committees which include Education, Jurisprudence, Transportation, and Veteran Affairs & Military Installations. She is also part of the Texas Sunset Commission
