HANSON: The Eerie Commonalities in Today's Blue State Laws for Red-Blooded Conservative Citizens

We are entering a dangerous era in America. Ideology & Party Affiliation are increasingly determining guilt – and if Democrats are successful – punishment in the Court of Public Opinion. Opponents are targeted, laws are being twisted, created on the fly or redefined to convict. The left is waging law fare with an implicit message to its political opponents, and there are eerie commonalities in all five of the cases involving Donald Trump. For one, they are either unapologetically left-wing or associated with liberal causes.

TAB Chairman VILLARREAL: Why I Travelled from Texas to Israel During a War

Texans – as proud citizens of the world’s 8th Largest Economy – see in Israel a natural partner for collaboration. We share common ground with Israel's innovation economy, making us ideal partners for continued support of Israel's "Start Up Nation." Many Israeli companies – including Alon Energy, Elbit Systems, and NICE – have already established a presence in Texas, while Texas-based companies continue to support Israel’s capacity to defend itself. In fact, Israel’s F-35 combat planes are manufactured in Ft. Worth.

Gov. Abbott Launches Texas JETI Program – for Tomorrow's Jobs, Energy, Technology & Innovation

Another Biden Ploy to End American Energy Production puts U.S. Energy Security at Risk

“The Biden Administration’s decision to pause approvals of new LNG export facilities – citing a potential to raise domestic energy prices – is another baseless ploy to end American energy production. These decisions squander the American energy leadership that starts in Texas – and puts energy security worldwide at risk,” said Texas Oil & Gas Assoc. president Todd Staples, as the group released a new study showing natural gas prices hit a 30 year low in mid-February – as LNG exports neared record highs.

THOMAS: The New Antisemitism – Why Do a Large Majority of Jews Still Vote for Democrats?

In Israel's ongoing attempt to eliminate Hamas in Gaza, Politico reports: "Biden White House officials have spent weeks quietly drafting a multi-phase, postwar game plan that envisions a revamped Palestinian Authority ultimately taking over the Gaza Strip." Great, Joe! It takes an impossible leap of faith to ignore what Hamas and other terrorist groups have as their objective – and to believe a "revamped" Palestinian Authority would not be overtaken again by Hamas or another terrorist group.

NAPOLITANO: The Banks Told the Court that Trump was Such a Good Customer, They’d Gladly Lend Him Money Again

Not surprisingly, the State of New York can’t say how it was harmed by Donald Trump’s commercial loans – because it wasn’t harmed by them. Yes, the government told the court Mr. Trump defrauded his lenders by inaccurately stating his assets. But Mr. Trump’s banks did their own due diligence on the value of the assets he'd pledged for his loans, they told the court Mr. Trump paid back every dime he borrowed (with interest!) – and that Trump was such a good customer they’d gladly lend to him again.

GLO Comm. Buckingham Re-Claims Texas Land in 'Operation Flat Top,' Sees Success with Texas DPS Effort

Fronton Island is a 170-acre piece of land located in the middle of the Rio Grande River in one of the most dangerous sections of the Texas-Mexico Border. It had been used by multiple Cartels to push guns, drugs, bombs and human trafficking through our nation's Southern Border, threatening the safety of those who work and live there – until Texas Land Commissioner Dawn Buckingham called in the Texas Dept. of Public Safety & the Texas Military Department to clear the island and address the Biden Border Crisis.

CONG. WEBER: A Man Who Can't be Held Responsible for Mishandling Classified Information has No Business in the Oval Office

In January, the Biden White House announced a halting of government approvals for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports – despite studies showing that American LNG exports protect global energy security, create American jobs, and reduce emissions. Banning LNG exports will only increase our dependency on China – the biggest climate polluter in the world. But then again, during a recent Press Conference, Mr. Biden referred to Egypt's president as the "president of Mexico."

McCULLOUGH: The Bozos, the Border, and the Biden…

​​​​​​​Three elements recently combined to give Donald Trump his best week in his still very brief life in politics. And his opponents know it. That's why you don’t see them out celebrating like they won a national title, or ended a global war. But if Mr. Trump is the hated, dangerous, and untrustworthy person they've attempted to have us believe, they should be. Instead, they're uniting the people who love America into a bond that is deeply earnest, and more committed to electing him in November than ever.

ICYMI: Failed Senate Border Deal Included Hidden Benefits for Biden, Democrat's 'Secure Border Control'

“Over the past decade, I’ve made many trips to our Southern Border, often bringing my colleagues in the Senate down with me. On a recent trip we had a conversation with a girl who was only 10 years old. She was with a man who claimed to be her father, who had his arm draped forcefully around her, and it was obvious to everyone that the two were not related," said Sen. Ted Cruz.

CONG. McCAUL: Americans Agree – Enough Is Enough

Last week, I proudly stood with my colleagues and constituents to declare "Enough is Enough" as we officially voted to impeach Homeland Security Sect. Mayorkas, the architect of our nation's border destruction. I look forward to serving as an impeachment manager for the upcoming Senate trial, where I will use my experience as a Federal Prosecutor to stand up for our Constitution – and the safety of the American people.

HUNTER: Here's Why This is Not Your Father's Democrat Party

The Democrat Party is a group of insufferable children, spoiled & entitled, throwing a constant series of temper tantrums without interruption. They're the brat in your child’s class that's constantly indulged with reassurances that they’re “special” and important – when what they need is a butt-reddening series of spanks that make it difficult to sit for a week. That won’t happen: Leftists don’t have adults on their side.

'Bidenomics' is Great if You’re an Illegal Alien – It's Catastrophically Bad for Everyone Else

At least 1-in-5 jobs being created by "Bidenomics," it turns out, are actually Government Jobs – and a new Immigration Studies Report shows that the supposed "millions of jobs" Joe Biden brags about are mostly happening among illegal immigrants. Biden's open borders aren't just for "transforming America" – it’s also at the core of Bidenomics. "While there were still 183,000 fewer U.S.-born Americans working in the 4th Quarter of 2023 compared to 2019, the number of immigrants (legal & illegal) working is up 2.9 million.”

Randy Weber (TX-14) voted in favor of H.R. 7176, the Unlocking Our Domestic LNG Potential Act of 2024 would remove restrictions on the import and export of natural gas and require the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to deem the import or export of natural gas to be consistent with the public interest.
