Senator Ted Cruz said the City of Houston and Mayor Annise Parker have “no legal authority, no constitutional authority and no moral authority” to issue subpoenas to pastors for their sermons and personal communications. The exclusive interview below came shortly after the Senator gathered with some of the top religious leaders in Houston to speak out against this unprecedented attack on religious liberty. During the interview, Cruz also reinforced his “common sense” call for a travel ban on people traveling from countries with an active outbreak of the Ebola virus.   Read more »

Batty In Houston

It's pretty remarkable that one of the most wacky, tyrannical definitionally un-American governing actions I've seen in this country, comes not from San Francisco or Burlington, Vermont, or not even from New York, L.A. or Chicago, but from Houston, TX. Houston recently imposed an act that allows choice in use of Men or Women's public bathrooms, irrespective of one's actual sex. And now, the Mayor and city attorney have issued subpoenas to five Houston pastors to turn over all sermons relating to homosexuality or Mayor Annise Parker.

With Only Months Until The Election: Why TCR Is Optimistic And Why We Still Have Concerns

For conservatives in 2014 it is the best of times, but potentially it could be a hugely disappointing time.

First, the reasons for optimism:

  1. Nationalization of the election at this point is a huge plus for conservatives. President Obama's approval rating continues to decline and is now at a 53% disapproval and currently is a drag on Democrats nationally.

The Significance of the Houston Rodeo

It's no secret that March is the month for Texas. Starting with the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, the fall of the defenders of the Alamo on March 6, and one of my personal favorite times of the year: the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo--the world's largest rodeo. All in the same week, Houston saddles up to reflect on Texas history and partake in the Houston Livestock Show, where millions of people flock to from all over the world for this one-of-a-kind Texas tradition.   Read more »

Houston City Elections - Michael Kubosh is the Clear Choice in At-Large #3 Race - Last Day for Early Voting

Today is the last day for early voting for the Houston City Council run-off election.

This election gives Republicans a real shot at reshaping the Houston City Council with a more conservative look. The election will decide the fate of three seats on city council. Also up for grabs on Saturday will be two seats on the Houston Community College Board. Let's turn City Council Red!

There is a clear choice in each of these run-off spots to build a more effective Houston City Council.

Houston City Elections - Michael Kubosh Brings Conservative Values and Broad-based Support to Race for City Council

It is time for conservatives to stand up in Houston and take control of our city's future. We have an opportunity to add a true conservative to Houston's City Council who also has a proven ability to build a coalition of supporters to take on issues like Houston's former red light camera program and Mayor Parker's anti-feeding ordinance.

It takes a unique individual to be able to effectively work with such a wide and diverse group of people. It is a skill that could be very valuable to a member of the Houston City Council. I sat down this week with Michael Kubosh, candidate for Houston City Council, At Large Position 3, to talk with him about who he is and why he wants to become a member of council for this great city.   Read more »

Detroit Falls Victim to Super Massive Blue Hole - Will Houston be Far Behind?

Super Massive Blue Hole of Democrat Led CitiesIn 2011, Debbie Georgatos coined the phrase "Super Massive Blue Hole" to define the effect on cities that are controlled over long periods of time by liberal Democrat governments and policies.  She named Detroit as the poster child of this effect. The phrase drew high-profile criticism from liberal news commentators Rachel Maddow and Anderson Cooper. It now appears her thoughts have become reality as Detroit recently became the largest city in our nation to file for debt relief under federal bankruptcy laws.   Read more »
