Cruz & Fellow Senators Introduce Legislation to Stop Biden's Sale of U.S. Oil Reserves to China

“The Strategic Petroleum Reserve was intended to ensure America had sufficient stockpiles of oil. Instead, Joe Biden sold oil to the Chinese Communist Party when it was stockpiling oil for its own strategic use," said Sen. Ted Cruz earlier today, introducing the "Protecting America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve from China Act" to prohibit the sale of the U.S.'s vital reserves to any company under CCP control, or exports from the SPR to China.

State Rep. Harrison’s 'Texas Title 42 Act' Gains Backing of Gov. Abbott

“Governor Abbott's exactly right to call for the Texas Legislature to pass a 'Texas Title 42 Act.'  Texas must use every tool available to save America from the crisis that's ravaging the border and threatening our national security with over 250,000 illegal crossings last month alone," said Rep. Brian Harrison, after Gov. Greg Abbott earlier today called for passage of Harrison's recently introduced HB 1491, called the "Texas Title 42 Act".

ELDER: Obama Warns About the 'Raw Sewage' of Disinformation, So – Here's the Democrats' Own Garbage

In the wake of the recent release of the shocking and "colluding" internal "Twitter Files" by new owner Elon Musk, let's revisit former President Obama's warning last April about the spread of "misinformation": "You just have to flood a country's public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theories that citizens no longer know what to believe." Hmm...

Sen. Cruz Leads Push for Education Freedom, Introduces Bills During 'School Choice Week'

“School choice is the Civil-Rights issue of the 21st Century, and every single child deserves access to an excellent education – regardless of race, ethnicity, wealth or zip code. That's why I’m once again introducing legislation to dramatically expand education freedom by creating $100 billion in Federal Tax Credits and scholarships. If passed, it would be the most consequential federal education legislation since the G.I. Bill," said Cruz.

Cong. Williams: After Biden Drains Strategic Petroleum Reserve to Bail Out "Green New Deal" Agenda, House Republicans Responded

For over two years now, President Biden has waged war on American Energy... from canceling critical pipelines, to regulating endless permitting delays, taxpayers have seen energy prices skyrocket due to these anti-energy policies. And now – in order to bail out his radical "Green New Deal" agenda – he's depleted our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. This week, House Republicans fought back.

HANSON: Here's 10 Real Differences Between the Biden & Trump Document Troves

Former President Trump – for now – seems to have had more "classified" documents at Mar-a-Lago than President Biden has had at his (various) homes in Delaware. But other than that, the comparisons between the two, contrary to popular punditry, hardly favor Biden. For starters, we seem to forget that for much of Mr. Biden's developing controversy, Joe Biden's own team is investigating Biden. And, he did not "self-report."

SID MILLER: The Session Has Started, and Hopes Are High

Normally I agree with the late-great Humorist P.J. O'Rourke, who wrote, "Distracting politicians from governing is like distracting a bear from eating your baby... or stopping a dog from chewing on your wallet at least." But, the Texas legislature's begun its Bi-Annual 140 Day Session, so I want to encourage you to politely, kindly, and respectfully let them know your priorities – and show them you're watching.

ARRINGTON: ​​​​​​​Pro-Growth Policies Can Avert a Fiscal Crisis

"Our debt currently sits above $31 trillion — a figure that's incomprehensible to most people. To put it in perspective, the debt is equivalent to almost $100,000 per person – and will nearly double over the next generation. To avoid a crisis, Congress will not only need uncommon fiscal courage, but commonsense economic policies that encourage work and grows our GDP," says the new chairman of the House Budget Committee.

CRENSHAW: The Mexican Cartels Are at War with Us – It’s Time We Directly Target Them

Last week I introduced legislation to Authorize the Use of Military Force (AUMF) against the Mexican Cartels facilitating our Southern Border Crisis. I also signed onto Articles of Impeachment for Homeland Security Sect. Mayorkas. The cartels are at war with us – poisoning 80,000+ Americans with fentanyl each year, creating a crisis at our border, and turning Mexico into a failed narco-state. It’s time we directly target them.

Cong. Pfluger Secures 2nd Term on House Homeland Security Committee

As Republicans on the House's Homeland Security Committee worked to expose the atrocities of President Biden’s border crisis last year, I served as Ranking Member on the Counter-Terrorism Subcommittee and led the effort to expose the shocking number of known and suspected terrorists entering our country under his watch. And, I plan to keep holding this White House accountable for the crisis.

Why Does Joe Biden Love Ukraine So Much?

There are few things Democrats love more than themselves, but one of those things is Ukraine. I support Ukraine’s sovereignty and all of that. But what I’m not willing to do for Ukraine, or nearly any other country for that matter, is to go broke in defense of them. Sorry, a corrupt eastern European country isn’t worth it to me. But it is to Democrats, especially Joe Biden.

Cong. McCaul: Big Plans for the New Congress

"In one of my first acts as chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I sent a letter to (Joe Biden's) Secretary of State Antony Blinken, demanding more information on President Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan — an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions. American citizens and our Afghan allies deserve answers, and I'm going to ensure they get them," said McCaul.
