Ebola Crisis At Home

I want to update you on what I have been doing regarding Ebola in America. I am grateful our prayers have been answered and the two brave nurses who treated the first Ebola patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital have been found to be Ebola free. Unfortunately, we have not solved the Ebola crisis yet.   Read more »

Senator Cornyn Invites VA Secretary to South Texas to Meet with Valley Veterans

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) today wrote to Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) Robert McDonald to invite him to visit the Rio Grande Valley to hear firsthand from South Texas veterans about the need for a full-service inpatient health care facility in the region:

I have introduced legislation to direct the VA Secretary to put a full-service inpatient health care facility in the South Texas VA Health Care Center in Harlingen, Texas. This bill would require the VA Secretary to include in the VA’s annual Strategic Capital Investment Planning process the resources necessary to expand the existing facility to provide

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 »

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 »

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
