Obama Adds Texas National Guard Troops to the Border – Just Like Texas

President Obama is following the lead of Texas Governor Rick Perry by deploying more federalized troops from the Texas National Guard (TNG) to help Border Patrol Agents. Approximately 60-75 soldiers of the Texas National Guard were recently federalized under a Title 32 drug interdiction program and were deployed to the Rio-Grande Sector of the Texas/Mexico Border.   Read more »

The Death of James Foley

Last night, ISIS militants released a video to the world showing the barbaric execution of American journalist James Foley. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. This gang of extremists shows no sign of slowing down their murderous rampage. The goal of ISIS is to grow their terrorist army and indiscriminately kill everyone else in sight. Negotiating with them is not an option. In just a few short months they have grown from a band of thugs to an army tens of thousands strong.

Republican Party of Texas: We Stand With Rick Perry

Republican Party of Texas: Following his booking Tuesday, Governor Perry called the prosecution a "chilling restraint on the right to free speech," and he vowed to prevail in the case, saying, "This indictment is fundamentally a political act that seeks to achieve at the courthouse what could not be achieved at the ballot box."   Read more »

Leaders and Losers Showcased in Ferguson, Missouri

The volatile situation in Missouri has showcased the profound difference between the character traits of leaders and losers. This week, we have seen:

1) The reckless abandon of criminals who used the situation as an excuse to engage in theft, vandalism, violence, and behave like animals.

2) The racists and race baiters, like Al Sharpton, who rush to the scene and exploit the situation in order to further their own personal racist agenda.   Read more »

With Only Months Until The Election: Why TCR Is Optimistic And Why We Still Have Concerns

For conservatives in 2014 it is the best of times, but potentially it could be a hugely disappointing time.

First, the reasons for optimism:

  1. Nationalization of the election at this point is a huge plus for conservatives. President Obama's approval rating continues to decline and is now at a 53% disapproval and currently is a drag on Democrats nationally.

Obama IS creating jobs…for TERRORISTS

Need a job? Want to work in a vibrant environment, with lots of benefits? If you’ve been thinking about relocating to find work, Iraq is the place for you.

Obama is living up to his promise, as jobs abound in Iraq. Terrorist group ISIS has lots of openings!

Celebrating our Military for Purple Heart Day

I’m thankful every day for our military service members and the veterans that have fought to keep us safe. And Thursday was a special day to commemorate specifically those who were wounded or killed in combat while defending America abroad. Purple Heart Day celebrates the 1.9 million U.S. troops who have earned the Purple Heart Medal, including the almost 50,000 men and women in uniform who have received a Purple Heart for their service in Iraq and Afghanistan. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who have made such great sacrifices for our country, and the families of all Purple Heart recipients.

Right here in Lubbock, we’re taking every opportunity to honor those who have served. You may remember that Texas Tech University was recently named a “Purple Heart University” for its
