Support for Travel Ban to Protect American Lives

This recent outbreak of Ebola has been heartbreaking. There’s no question about that. It’s infected more than 8,800 patients, and taken more than 4,400 lives in West Africa. Here in Texas, we’ve seen firsthand how quickly the virus spreads and how devastating it can be.

The Obama Administration has been frustratingly slow to respond. What we need is immediate action and real leadership, to stop Ebola’s global impact, and to eliminate the threat here in America.   Read more »

The Ethics of Quarantine

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed . . .”

Yes, I’m using the Declaration of Independence to explain the ethics of quarantine. In fact, I suggest that the inalienable rights to life, liberty and “the pursuit of happiness” actually requires that a “just government” quarantine people

Sonograms are Saving Lives!

Thank God our Texas legislators had the courage to require pregnant mothers beginning in 2012 to have a sonogram prior to aborting their child! If you ever doubted sonograms would save lives, please watch this nine minute video! It will make your day!

Please think about this. Do immigration reform, abortion, and radical Islam have any correlations?   Read more »

Texas Succeeds Where Federal Government Failed on Ebola

The Texas Department of State Health Services announced today it is enacting its own travel ban on health workers who have treated Ebola patients. The decision comes as the Obama administration continues to refuse to enforce a flight ban on travelers coming from countries most affected by the Ebola virus. I have been calling for increased scrutiny on travel since early October when the first U.S. case of Ebola was confirmed in Dallas.   Read more »

City of Houston - Intimidation Tactics Against Churches

The Mayor of Houston has backed down on the subpoenas that she issued to five pastors for "all speeches, presentations, or sermons" on a variety of topics, including the mayor, and "gender identity."

Despite backing off of the issued subpoenas, the Houston Mayor and City Attorney still fail to admit

GOP Judicial Candidates ‘Come Out Of The Closet’

Justitia, Lady Justice, has been ‘blinded’ since the 15th century. The blindfold signifies objectivity, that justice should be measured accurately without fear or favor, regardless of race, gender, religion, personal wealth or power. Judges play an enormous role in our society. People tend to forget that lives going into a courtroom can change drastically by the outcome of the decision of the judge and jury.   Read more »

Batty In Houston

It's pretty remarkable that one of the most wacky, tyrannical definitionally un-American governing actions I've seen in this country, comes not from San Francisco or Burlington, Vermont, or not even from New York, L.A. or Chicago, but from Houston, TX. Houston recently imposed an act that allows choice in use of Men or Women's public bathrooms, irrespective of one's actual sex. And now, the Mayor and city attorney have issued subpoenas to five Houston pastors to turn over all sermons relating to homosexuality or Mayor Annise Parker.

Best-Selling Author Alvin Townley is Keynote Speaker for Annual Veteran Commendation Ceremony

In anticipation of the annual Congressional Veterans Commendation ceremony on Saturday, November 1, I encourage 3rd District constituents to show their gratitude to all our veterans by attending this special event. The program will include a reception with veteran honorees and a book-signing with best-selling author Alvin Townley.

North Texas is home to many veterans, and it’s important that we take time out of our busy schedules to thank these brave men and women for their service and sacrifice to our Great Nation. Our veteran honorees faithfully served their country, and they continue to serve as civilian leaders. They truly are our hometown heroes, and I look forward to paying them tribute on November 1 with our community.   Read more »

US Troops Get Started with Construction of Ebola Treatment Centers

It’s been said that the military’s purpose is two-fold: “To kill people and to break things.” But in the battle against an invisible enemy, in this case the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, United States military forces are tasked with building infrastructure that will hopefully help struggling nations contain the deadly infectious disease.   Read more »

The Importation of Ebola


www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/outbreaks/2014-west-africa/distribution-map.html#areas

Many of us have heard of Ebola but that was a faraway disease, never to be in America! Actually, even if we had heard about Ebola, we didn’t know anything about the disease. It wasn’t until two American health care givers contracted Ebola while working in Africa that we begin to take notice. Earlier this week, we woke up to more news on Ebola, this time the breaking news was that the first American has been diagnosed with this deadly, dreaded disease on our soil. Later that day, October 12th, we have learned that is it a female nurse who had been caring for Thomas Eric Duncan. Duncan died from the disease and had arrived from Liberia in late September to visit family in Dallas.   Read more »
