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

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 »

Texas Governor’s Office Takes Over Dallas Ebola Apartment Cleanup

DALLAS, Texas -- The governor’s office is taking over the decontamination process at the apartment of the 2nd Ebola patient. Clean Guys Environmental, hired by the county, is being replaced by Protect Environmental Services Inc., hired by the governor’s office, after concerns about the sanitation procedures.

Breitbart Texas spoke with Richard Cameron, General Manager of Protect Environmental Services Inc., and was told the governor’s office hired them directly because they were concerned with how the cleanup was being done by the previous team the county hired.   Read more »

National Night Out

Tuesday evening I was delighted to join constituents in Richardson, Rowlett, and Wylie to participate in National Night Out. National Night Out is a program that started in 1984 as “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” and now involves more than 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states. This unique night allows neighbors and members of the community to meet with local law enforcement and promotes police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. I enjoyed meeting with the Mayors of the cities, Mayor Laura Maczka from Richardson, Mayor Todd Gottel from Rowlett, and Mayor Eric Hogue from Wylie, and local police officers and firemen to discuss ways to keep our communities safe.   Read more »

Congressman Pete Sessions' Ebola Update from Dallas

On Wednesday, we learned that the first patient to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States passed away. My deepest condolences go out to the loved ones of Mr. Duncan and all of the medical professionals who diligently cared for him while he was fighting this awful disease.

As we move forward, I believe that the Administration needs to take effective measures to ensure that the American people are protected from Ebola.

Senator Cruz Pens Op-Ed on Obama’s Failed ISIS Policy

I recently wrote an op-ed in Politico responding to President Obama’s admission that the United States underestimated ISIS. President Obama’s willingness to make concessions to the Islamic Republic in pursuit of a deal, while innocent Americans languish in their prisons, suggests he is underestimating the threat of a nuclear Iran as well.

On Sept. 26, 2012, an American pastor named Saeed Abedini who was

Anti-Pojman Site Apparently Created by Company Linked to Empower Texans

This story was originally published on The Quorum Report

The conservative website recently launched with the express purpose of attacking a longtime pro-life advocate has apparent links to the conservative group Empower Texans and many of the candidates the group endorses. The site takes aim at Texas Alliance for Life Executive Director Joe Pojman with the claim that he is “being used by establishment powers to cover the tracks of politicians who are weak on life.”

Republican politicians who have been in the crosshairs of Empower Texans like Rep. Bennett Ratliff and Rep. J.D. Sheffield are attacked on the site as being “pro-choice.”   Read more »

Wounded Warrior Federal Leave Act of 2014 Approved in Committee

Recently, a bill I co-authored, H.R. 5229, the Wounded Warrior Federal Leave Act of 2014, was approved by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and will likely appear on the House Floor in November for final votes.

The bill will grant paid leave for first year federal employees who have a 30% or more service related disability. Currently, new federal employees do not have medical leave during their first year of civilian government employees.

Ebola vomit washed down the sewer

The Fed likes to report good news. Whether it’s interest rates, unemployment rates, housing start, whatever, it’s never bad news. Even when it’s bad news, the spin will be that everything is under control. The same is true with Ebola.

No need to rehash that Obama said Ebola would not hit America’s shores, he has the border PROTECTED!   Read more »
