Illegals in America by Obama

Who exactly is to blame for the current surge in Central Americans crossing the southern border? There are the obvious reasons: violence and poverty in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. According to an article in the Express News, “In Honduras, violence drives an exodus” by Aaron Nelsen, human life is not a valued commodity, and the people are looking for a way out of this vicious environment.   Read more »

Cheers for Citizens United!

My good friend and editor of, Frank DeMartini, has always expressed his doubt that Hillary Clinton would actually run for office. As of now, she is the overwhelming favorite, even with the poor roll out of her book, Hard Choices, in which she reminded many Democratic voters that she is not her husband when it comes to campaigning. The one lesson that many pundits fail to grasp is the affect of Citizens United and the role of billionaires like the Koch brothers.

What Was the American Revolution All About?

With our recent celebration of Independence Day, I talked to Kevin Gutzman, author of (among other titles) James Madison and the Making of America, about the American Revolution. We subscribe to the out-of-fashion but nevertheless correct view that the Revolution was fundamentally a constitutional conflict. It’s a great discussion. I’m really thrilled with this episode.

I spoke on the Senate floor today on the humanitarian crisis at the border and urged President Obama to visit the border during his upcoming trip to Texas. 

I recently visited McAllen, Texas myself a week ago today, and it is heartbreaking to see these young children without their parents.

So, What Do You Think? Ben Carson For President?

Dr. Ben Carson is the antithesis of Barack Obama, which is to say, Dr. Carson is logical and competent. He doesn’t just work on brains, he actually USES his!

Dr. Carson make a lot of sense, and that vexes the Left.

Only the frivolous Left would argue that their policies have led to utter destruction of the black community, with the larger community on life support.   Read more »

Megyn Kelly vs Bill Ayers

While watching the Megyn Kelly drilling of Bill Ayers, several thoughts popped into my mind. The first is how does a known terrorist and Marxist become an accepted part of the Chicago political establishment? Imagine the outrage from the left if a former right wing militant who conducted a terrorist activity decades earlier suddenly become part of the local Republican establishment?

Immigration: The New Civil Rights Movement

"Why politics?" I am often asked, “What in the world made you decide to participate in politics?” Texas politics is well known to be a tumble-and-rumble sport. It is one of the most gruesome, unforgiving, vile, and cruel “sports” if you ask me; and oftentimes I think that perhaps it is a sport that you put first before your own convictions—whether religious or Constitutional. But politics is also a means to an end,

Happy 4th of July: A Story Francis Scott Key and Sam Houston

As America celebrates the 238th anniversary of our Independence this July 4th, I wanted to share a story with you all about Francis Scott Key and Sam Houston, two very important men to not only our country, but our great state of Texas.

An Apology to All Veterans

To all Veterans:

You represent the the spirit that once made America a super power. I apologize that our government and some of our people do not give you the respect and services you deserve, in spite of the fact that we all know you did not enlist in the military in order to receive gratitude. You served because you believe in the founding principles of this great nation.   Read more »
