"An individual's right to protect him or her self should not be limited to the home, as anyone who has been the victim of a crime in a public place can attest. The recent decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was the right one: individuals should not have to meet an arbitrary standard and prove a need to protect themselves in order to receive a concealed carry permit."

The 2014 Republican State Convention was a huge success!

Republican Party of Texas - The annual Texas Republican State Convention was held in Fort Worth for the second year in a row from June 5-7 at the Fort Worth Convention Center, and despite it being during the mid-term elections, there was still an attendance of approximately 8,000 people!

Attendees were treated to rousing speeches from Greg Abbott, Rick Perry, Ted Cruz, John Cornyn, Rand Paul, and more from our November ticket. Breakout sessions were attended by more people than ever before, an amazing video was presented by Speaker Joe Straus highlighting the work of the 83rd Legislature, and much more made it one of the most entertaining

Democrats Declare War on the Catholic Church

The Democrats have waged war on the religious liberty, particularly the Catholic Church. Forty-six Senate Democrats are cosponsoring legislation to reverse the Supreme Court’s Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision and force businesses and religious non-profits, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, to authorize abortion-inducing drugs for employees or pay millions in faith fines.   Read more »

Palin And West Are Wrong Calling For Impeachment Before November

Once again Conservatives are letting their impatience and frustration with the dictatorial powers of the Obama administration lead them to call for actions that cannot happen so long as the Democrats control the Senate.

Sarah Palin and Col. Allen West, two conservative leaders that I hold in high regard, are making a BIG MISTAKE calling for Impeachment of the President before the November elections. Obama can never be removed from office so long as the Senate is controlled by Harry Reid and the Democrat majority. Winning control of the Senate should be our first and last priority.   Read more »

Sen. Cruz: Israel’s fight against radical Islamic terrorism, and the Iranian regime that supports it, is our fight as well

Yesterday, I spoke on the Senate floor about the urgent need to reverse the longstanding and misguided Obama-Clinton-Kerry policy towards Israel, laid out in a speech by Obama advisor Philip Gordon in Tel Aviv last week. Rather than pressuring Israel to make even more security concessions to the Palestinians while terrorist rockets rain down from Gaza, I argued that the United States should support Israel’s efforts to construct aggressive defensive measures such as the security barrier and the Iron Dome missile defense system that have made Israeli civilians safer.   Read more »

Congressman Neugebauer Bill to Reduce Windstorm Damage and Save Lives

The House of Representatives voted yesterday on my bill to reduce windstorm damage across America. It promotes research to help save lives, reduce injuries, and lessen communities’ damage from windstorms. Those of us who have experienced these disasters – like the 1970 storm I experienced in Lubbock that took 26 lives – know their devastating effects. And the U.S. averages about 1300 tornadoes a year.   Read more »

Texas Must Take Urgent Action on Migrant Children Crisis

U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) and I authored the following op-ed today in The Houston Chronicle:

It is no secret that we come from different political parties and differ on many issues. But we are Texans and we know that with the responsibility of public office comes the duty to take action when others will not - to find solutions for the problems facing our state.   Read more »

The Bandits Of Hamas Keep On Shooting

The Hamas terrorists in Gaza keep shooting their rockets into Israel. Israel has used defensive weapons to intercept some. However, Iranian-backed Hamas keeps on reloading its six-shooters and firing into civilian areas.

The Israeli Government is shooting back and is headed to Gaza to stop the bandits.

Our government wants a cease-fire. Cease-fires in the past have just given Hamas time to obtain more ammo rockets from Iran. Also, Hamas shields its command centers underneath schools and hospitals in Gaza. So it cowers behind women, children, the elderly, and the sick.   Read more »

Congressman Smith STEM Bill Clears House

The House of Representatives approved the STEM Education Act of 2014 (H.R. 5031). The STEM Education Act of 2014 strengthens ongoing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education efforts and ensures computer science is included in these efforts.

We need to ensure that young adults have the scientific and mathematical skills to strive and thrive in a technology-based economy. But we have to capture and hold the desire of our nation’s youth to study science and engineering so they will want to pursue these careers.
