Vietnam Foolishness Redux

For many decades, The United States has been by far the most assertive and powerful force for freedom and against oppression on planet earth. That requires a cultural ethic of decency and a dynamic free economy that can produce the wealth and technology to assert strength against oppressive and inhumane forces.

That America established both that benevolent intervention on behalf of others and the power to assert was

Walker is Innocent

Democrats are giddy over the unsealing of “secret” documents that charge Scott Walker with an involvement in a criminal scheme, but all this showed either the media bias or simply their ignorance. First thing to understand, two judges have ordered the investigation to be shut down and there is no evidence that there was a “criminal enterprise” conducted by Governor Walker.   Read more »

Pastor John Lawson on People, Problems, and Progress

At Saturday's gospel musical, I explained how Black people have to learn to vote for a candidate that will benefit them the most, not just a candidate who happens to be black. We must take a critical look at every candidate!

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) graduated 107 new troopers who now leave Austin to begin patrolling the highways of Texas.

Gov. David Dewhurst, and House Speaker Joe Straus signed a letter to DPS Director, Colonel Steve McCraw, ordering the immediate commencement of a surge of DPS law enforcement assets to secure the border with Mexico.   Read more »

Real Moms Don’t Demand Action… They TAKE IT

Moms Demand Action is an anti gun organization that works to disarm law abiding moms and dads across the country.

This organization ignores the fact that 2.5 million times last year, LAW ABIDING citizens pulled a gun in self defense and SAVED LIVES.

Congressman Farenthold Checks Up On Our Local VA Clinics

Last week, I visited the VA Outpatient Clinics in Corpus Christi and Victoria to get the real story on wait times, quality of service, and other issues from local Veterans and VA staff.

As you may have read, the Corpus Christi clinics were among those subject to additional investigation for long wait times. We have had far too many requests for service come into my office from veterans in this area. The VA must get on track and provide prompt quality care.   Read more »

Sen. Cruz Files S. 2510 to Prohibit Guantanamo Transfers Until Administration Justifies Release of ‘Taliban 5’

Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-New Hampshire, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, and I have filed legislation to temporarily halt further transfers or releases for detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Following the controversial prisoner swap the Obama Administration made earlier this month, resulting in the release of the Taliban 5 terrorists, further releases should be off the table until President Obama can explain how this swap was in the United States’ national security interests.   Read more »

IRC To President Obama: Deploy National Guard To The Border

This week, along with the Executive Board Members of the Immigration Reform Caucus (IRC), I sent a letter to President Obama calling on the Administration to immediately issue a public statement that the immigration laws of our country will be enforced and to make at least 2,000 National Guard troops available for deployment to the US/Mexico Border.

The surge of foreign nationals on the Texas border is a direct result of this Administration’s
