Does God's Kindness Lead Us?

Kindness as defined by Webster's is a state or quality of being kind; specifically beneficence, kind feeling; affection.

"You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgement on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgement do the same things.

Administration Requests Causing Space Exploration Delays

We recently celebrated the 45th anniversary of putting a man on the moon. I believe space inspires future generations to dream big and work hard. The first foot prints on the moon’s surface were made by Americans.

I recently sent a letter to NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden, Jr. about reported delays to our nation’s space exploration systems. The news comes despite congressional support for these NASA priorities and repeated Administration assurances that they are on schedule.   Read more »

The Russian Invasion of Ukraine

In 1994, Russia promised to respect the territorial integrity of Ukraine in exchange for Ukraine giving up its nuclear weapons. Twenty years later, that agreement is nothing but a torn up piece of paper. Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine’s sovereign territory yesterday in Putin’s latest attempt to reestablish the Russian Empire. We have seen this script before: In 1956, when the Russians invaded Hungary, or 2008 when they invaded Georgia, or earlier this year when they invaded Crimea. Each time, the West did little but complain- as long as it wasn’t them that was getting devoured by the Russian bear.   Read more »

Senator Cornyn Calls on President to Work with Congress on ISIL

The threat posed by ISIL should transcend partisan politics; with each passing day this terrorist group grows more capable and the danger to the U.S., our allies, and our interests becomes more serious.

The President, utilizing all levers of American power, must develop a clear strategy with achievable objectives and recruit a coalition of allies willing to defeat this terrorist threat. I encourage the President to communicate this strategy to the
