Hypocrisy Rears Its Head in the race for Judge in the 247th District Court

Some of you may know, some of you may not know that I am a proud home school mom. It was a decision my husband and I made and committed to long ago, before we were even married, in fact. You may be aware that home schoolers have a very extensive network where we can support one another and provide encouragement and resources to other home school families.

BLM EYES 90,000 ACRES OF TEXAS LAND

18 Minutes To Victory

Each year, on March 2, Texans celebrate a uniquely Texan holiday—Texas Independence Day. It marks the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence at the Convention of 1836 at Washington-on-the-Brazos. And while March 2 is indeed the day Texans declared their independence, it was in fact the 18-minute battle that occurred several weeks later, on April 21, that cemented that declaration and established the Republic of Texas.

This year will mark the 178th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, perhaps observed nowhere more closely than on the grounds of the San Jacinto Monument and San Jacinto Museum of History in La Porte, Texas.

Windy/Wendy Davis gets lesbian Left “support” – as a sex object

Well, flip! Substitute my F-word for their F-word and drop the suggestion that even straight women want to “do ‘very sexy things’ to Windy," and I could have had the vast WingRight Conspiracy laughing at this column. Ironically, the f’ing-bomb-this and f-bomb-that commenters all seem to take Wonkette’s “satirical” take on Windy as a sex object as supportive!

Wonkette is a left-wing blog whose writers spew forth with a foul keyboard, and I think that she and her readers are serious about supporting Windy. It’s just that their support is... shall we say “bent?”   Read more »

Julian Castro vs Dan Patrick Debate Immigration

April 15, 2014
Univision Studio

Univision may have just as well billed this debate Man-Child vs Adult debate instead of Cara A Cara, Face to Face. I was one of the very few Conservatives invited to the live broadcast at the studio.

Congressman Farenthold Introduces “Contempt Act” to Prohibit Taxpayer-Funded Salaries for Government Officials Found in Contempt of Congress

Last week I officially introduced H.R. 4447, the “Contempt Act.” H.R. 4447 would simply prohibit any federal employee who is found in contempt of Congress from receiving his or her salary. More specifically, the bill would officially direct the employer of any officer or employee of the federal government who is in contempt of Congress to not pay compensation to the officer or employee while he or she remains in contempt.   Read more »

Brandeis University Shuns Black Women’s Rights Activist: “Feminists” are Silent

Last week, Brandeis University reversed its decision to award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary degree for her women’s rights work, and withdrew her commencement speaking invitation.

Reason given: some of her past statements are “inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.” True reason: an online petition signed by 6,000 that declared that Hirsi Ali had engaged in “hate speech” because she denies that Islam is a religion of peace.

How I Escaped From the Soviet Union

Yuri Maltsev, an adviser to Mikhail Gorbachev’s government, tells the story of his defection to the U.S., and relates stories from his life in the Soviet Union.

While at Moscow State University, he received special permission to read forbidden, anti-communist books. He was told to take his permission letter, get in the elevator, and press the button that had no number on it.
