Despite the dire reality of our Southern Border, President Biden recently claimed (while visiting the State of Arizona,) that there are "more important things going on" than protecting our sovereignty – and he refused to acknowledge the Border Crisis he has created under his own watch. Texas Republicans are fighting for a nation that is safe – and will hold the Biden White House accountable for the crisis. Here's how.
Maj Toure, a Philadelphia high school dropout turned activist, tells me he started "Black Guns Matter" after he got tired of hearing people chanting endlessly "Black lives matter" – but saying nothing "when it's time for Black people to defend their lives" and their families. He carries a gun wherever he goes, because "This is my human right." And, he sells a T-shirt with the slogan "Make Criminals Afraid Again" printed on the front.
“Viktor Bout’s arms trafficking activity has been a concern around the globe for decades. Today he faces the prospect of life in prison for his efforts to sell millions of dollars worth of weapons to terrorists for use in killing Americans,” said Barack Obama's then-Attorney General Eric Holder in 2011 after Bout’s conviction. “One of the world’s most prolific arms dealers is being held accountable for his sordid past,” Holder said. Under Joe Biden, all that's changed.
"Legislative bodies allowing a single executive branch official to both write and enforce laws is the biggest threat to our constitutional system of divided government. Joe Biden is destroying America through executive actions, and Texas must lead by example in protecting individual liberties – even during emergencies," said State Representative Brian Harrison, filing House Bill 911 to ensure any exercise of "Emergency Powers" is narrowly tailored, and more.
"With the announcement of this groundbreaking facility by Air Products and AES, Texas will extend its leadership in U.S. energy production and help meet our country’s energy needs for decades to come," said Gov. Greg Abbott earlier today, celebrating the two companies announcement of a mega-scale green hydrogen facility in Wilbarger County located northwest of Ft. Worth. It will be the largest green hydrogen facility in the United States.
“14 Border Patrol Agents have committed suicide this year. That's more than any other year since 2007 when CBP first started tracking suicides," said Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) on Wednesday, who along with Congressman Tony Gonzales (R-TX-23) held a bipartisan press conference in honor of the 14 fallen U.S. Customs Officers & Border Protection (CBP) Agents who have committed suicide this year.

The comprehensive study examined all 7,400 State Lawmakers from each of the 50 states – including over 265,000 individual votes across 3,500 different bills introduced in State Legislatures.
Elon Musk is releasing internal Twitter documents that clearly illustrate how "More to review from the Biden team" was "Handled," and how the "the Biden team" had a direct pipeline to Twitter's senior executives. It lays bare for all to see how the decision to bury the Hunter Biden Laptop Story happened – and oh what a difference the suppression made; 17% of Biden voters in 7 Swing States would not have voted for Biden had they known about the story.
What's clear is that Elon Musk – despite the full mobilization of the D.C. Swamp against him – is undeterred, thank goodness. In fact, the normally unstoppable forces of Washington may have met their first immovable object. What is also clear, is that the Biden Campaign never denied Hunter Biden's laptop was Hunter Biden's laptop. On Tuesday, Musk fired Twitter's Deputy General Counsel – and disgraced former FBI General Counsel – Jim Baker.
My son-in-law, Greg, helped save my life a couple months ago. For those who don’t know, being added to a transplant waitlist is quite a process – and there are many more Texans waiting for a transplant than there are deceased-donor organs available. That's why Greg's "live donation" helped save my life. In less time than it'll take you to read my story, you can visit DonateLifeTexas.org to see if you're registered to help save someone else's life.
Californians pay 80% above the national average for electricity, and Germans have the highest electricity prices in the world. Yes, contrary to what Americans typically see or hear – and are told by the Mainstream Media – reliance on wind and solar power actually increases the costs of your electric bills. California and Germany are prime examples of what happens when a state or nation relies to heavily on wind and-or solar energy.
“I thank Secretary John Scott for his tireless work educating Texas voters on how they can participate in the electoral process, and for safeguarding the integrity of Texas elections. Senator Nelson’s lifelong commitment to public service and her deep understanding of state government will be assets in her new role as Secretary of State," said Gov. Greg Abbott earlier today, accepting Scott's resignation and announcing his intent to name Nelson as Texas' 115th Secretary of State.
"No one should fear that their religious and speech rights will be trampled in the United States, and today’s oral arguments demonstrated the rightness of 303 Creative’s position under the Constitution,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of its Constitution Subcommittee earlier today about the "303 Creative LLC vs. Elenis" court case currently being heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Attorney General Paxton has secured a significant victory in the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, with the court striking down the Federal Horseracing Integrity & Safety Act as unconstitutional. This private, unelected and unaccountable to taxpayers entity falls under the purview of the Federal Trade Commission, which the 5th Circuit said is too limited to provide proper oversight.
The Founding Fathers understood human nature and its tendency toward excess – absent controls. And, for the next few weeks Democrats still control Congress. John Adams put it most succinctly: "There are two ways to enslave a nation. One is by sword. The other is by debt." So count on Democrats to threaten government "shutdown" if Republicans don't go along with their threats to spend more money... that we don't have.
Governor Greg Abbott, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Texas National Guard are continuing to work together to secure the border; stop the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and people into Texas; and prevent, detect, and interdict trans-national criminal behavior. Since the launch of Operation Lone Star, the multi-agency effort has led to over 328,000 migrant apprehensions and more than 22,100 criminal arrests.
Americans no longer need to fear the Grinch to steal Christmas – Biden-Inflation has managed to accomplish that with higher costs and smaller paychecks during the Holiday Season. Consumers are cutting back on holiday gift buying amid escalating inflation, shoppers are making fewer purchases, and they are doing so at a discount to try and combat higher prices this holiday season, several studies show.
Texas Congressmen August Pfluger and Henry Cuellar have introduced a piece of bi-partisan legislation called the "LNG for Allies Act" to expedite the licensing process for exports of U.S. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to strategic partners and allied countries. The bill also specifies that applications for expedited LNG exports to nations known to be a State Sponsors of Terrorism will be denied.
