Let me say at the outset that I’d rather have Lindsey Graham in the United States Senate than any Democrat, especially the clown he beat last time who is now the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (liberals fail up). . . But he’s far from perfect and getting farther away from it every day.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, joined by Sens. Cotton (R-Ark.), Hagerty (R-Tenn.), Ernst (R-Iowa), Barrasso (R-Wyo.), and Rubio (R-Fla.), introduced the "Strengthening Entry Visa Enforcement & Restrictions Act of 2022" (SEVER Act) to prevent Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi from entering the U.S. to attend the upcoming opening session of the United Nations General Assembly.

"The State of Texas has passed laws to protect women, and unelected D.C. bureaucrats must be defeated in this unconstitutional overreach," said State Rep. Brian Harrison and a coalition of Texas lawmakers who are calling on President Biden’s Dept. of Education to withdraw its proposed Title IX Rule to allow biological males in grades K-12 to play in female-only sports. They are seeking to expose the idea for what it is: An attack on Women’s Rights.
A number of people who are against high taxes believe – at the same time – in substantial tariffs on goods from other countries. Here’s the problem: a tariff is a tax, a tax on imports. Americans and producers in that country share the burden of the tax. But is there some good news here? There is.
Dr. Mehmet Oz, Republican Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, recently attacked his opponent – the utterly ridiculous Lt. Gov. John Fetterman – for a pro-criminal record that would embarrass even George Soros. Specifically, he criticized Fetterman for employing as campaign aides Dennis & Lee Horton, who spent 27 years in prison for a horrific armed robbery murder. If I understand it correctly, the media's theory of the crime is as follows.
Currently Mr. Biden is more than 20% underwater on "the Economy" – with a 58.6% "Disapproval Rating" according to RealClearPolitics – which is worse than his overall 10% "job approval-disapproval" deficit. And with August's inflation rate near its recent 40-year high in June, wages continue to fall, Americans are paying more for everything from groceries to gas, and inflation's showing no signs of slowing down.
Texans are feeling the impacts of higher interest rates and inflation, yet as we worry about prices at the grocery store or at the gas pump, some lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are more focused on taking down America’s most successful technology companies than they are on offering solutions to mitigate the impacts of economic turmoil on consumers and small business owners.

Her expertise will be a key asset in moving our legislative agenda forward this upcoming session," said Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, announcing the promotion of long-time Education Policy Advisor Marian Wallace to Deputy Chief of Staff. Wallace will serve under long-time Chief of Staff Darrell Davila.
It isn't complicated why crime has, and is substantially increasing across America. And, if Joe Biden is unwilling to criticize the misguided policies of his fellow Democrats who lead the cities where its increasing, he can't call himself "tough on crime." Failing to convict or incarcerate criminals, while "defunding" and making the job of police more difficult, leads to more crime. Here's how Biden himself has made the job of police more difficult.
Representatives Tony Gonzales (TX-23) and Jodey Arrington (TX-19), and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) on Friday celebrated the official renaming of the Rocksprings Border Patrol Station as “the Donna M. Doss Border Patrol Station.
The Black Lives Matter movement pretended to be about racial injustice. Mainstream media swooned. Churches centered the propaganda instead of Scripture. And Corporate America groveled at their feet. Seven years and nearly $200 million dollars later, the world has been conned.
“On the somber anniversary of the most horrific terrorist attack in United States history, I stand with millions of Americans in memory of the nearly 3,000 lives lost.

Ted Cruz yesterday, remembering the lives lost 21 years ago during September 11th's terrorist attacks.
In conjunction with the Texas Dept. of Public Safety (DPS,) Gov. Greg Abbott has increased the reward amount to $5,000 for information leading to the identification of Stash Houses being used in Trans-National Criminal Activity.

"Rather than wasting taxpayer dollars on high-priced outside lawyers to fight against statistical reality and public support, Harris County Commissioners Court could have done the right thing all along — adopt a final budget that does not defund law enforcement. We have diligently worked to facilitate a local agreement even as Judge Lina Hidalgo engaged in childish attacks on Harris County law enforcement," said Comptroller Glenn Hegar.
