Palin And West Are Wrong Calling For Impeachment Before November

Once again Conservatives are letting their impatience and frustration with the dictatorial powers of the Obama administration lead them to call for actions that cannot happen so long as the Democrats control the Senate.

Sarah Palin and Col. Allen West, two conservative leaders that I hold in high regard, are making a BIG MISTAKE calling for Impeachment of the President before the November elections. Obama can never be removed from office so long as the Senate is controlled by Harry Reid and the Democrat majority. Winning control of the Senate should be our first and last priority.   Read more »

Sen. Cruz: Israel’s fight against radical Islamic terrorism, and the Iranian regime that supports it, is our fight as well

Yesterday, I spoke on the Senate floor about the urgent need to reverse the longstanding and misguided Obama-Clinton-Kerry policy towards Israel, laid out in a speech by Obama advisor Philip Gordon in Tel Aviv last week. Rather than pressuring Israel to make even more security concessions to the Palestinians while terrorist rockets rain down from Gaza, I argued that the United States should support Israel’s efforts to construct aggressive defensive measures such as the security barrier and the Iron Dome missile defense system that have made Israeli civilians safer.   Read more »

Congressman Neugebauer Bill to Reduce Windstorm Damage and Save Lives

The House of Representatives voted yesterday on my bill to reduce windstorm damage across America. It promotes research to help save lives, reduce injuries, and lessen communities’ damage from windstorms. Those of us who have experienced these disasters – like the 1970 storm I experienced in Lubbock that took 26 lives – know their devastating effects. And the U.S. averages about 1300 tornadoes a year.   Read more »

U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) and I authored the following op-ed today in The Houston Chronicle:

It is no secret that we come from different political parties and differ on many issues. But we are Texans and we know that with the responsibility of public office comes the duty to take action when others will not - to find solutions for the problems facing our state.   Read more »

Why Does Obama Do and Say What He Does?

Many Americans are puzzled at the lack of strong leadership for America demonstrated by the president. Many of us believe we know why he makes decisions that are bad for America. This article by political writer and commentator, Maureen Scott, really hits the nail on the head.

There are some gifted people who have the ability to put into words that of which most of us are thinking. Maureen Scott is an ardent American patriot who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and retired to

WASHINGTON— Tomorrow U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees, and Border Security, and U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security, will introduce the Helping Unaccompanied Minors and Alleviating National Emergency (HUMANE) Act, legislation designed to reform current law and solve the ongoing humanitarian crisis on our southern border.

“Congressman Cuellar and I are proposing a solution to the current crisis on our border,” said Sen.

The Anger and the Hate in Moral America

“America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” - Alexis de Tocqueville

The air is thick with discontent, rage and vengeance. It doesn’t take much to recognize that the American people have had enough, that they want to wake up from the never ending Obama nightmare.

Firefighter Daniel Groover, Fire Station 104, Houston, Texas

When there is a blaze, when there is a fire, when there is an explosion, when someone has an emergency medical problem, the firefighters rush in. While others flee danger, the firefighters, with sirens, red lights, horns, red-and-white trucks, charge into the jaws and midst of danger. Sometimes, the danger is overwhelming and firefighters are injured and killed.

Wednesday afternoon, with temperatures approaching 100 degrees outside, in an area called Forest Cove, near the San Jacinto River in Houston, Texas, the fire alarm sounded at the fire station. A house fire then turned into two alarms. The firefighters rushed and battled a fire in the hot, humid Texas summer heat.   Read more »
