    Rep. Joe Barton, whose private life came under national scrutiny after sexual images he shared in an extramarital relationship were made public, won’t seek re-election. The Ennis Republican announced his retirement in an interview with The Dallas Morning News on Thursday, three weeks after saying he would seek an 18th term. "I’ve always listened to people in Texas and worked for them in Washington, and I’ve been listening to a lot of people the last week in Texas," he said. "...There are enough people who lost faith in me that it’s time to step aside and let there be a...

    Rep. Joe Barton, who apologized Wednesday for a lewd photo of him that circulated on the Internet, told a woman to whom he had sent sexually explicit photos, videos and messages that he would report her to the Capitol Police if she exposed his behavior, according to a recording reviewed by The Washington Post. The woman spoke to The Post after the lewd photo was published Tuesday by an anonymous Twitter account. She shared a secretly recorded phone conversation she had with Barton in 2015 in which he warned her against using the explicit materials “in a way that would...

I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am...

    Talladega Mayor Larry Barton says he does not know why he was targeted when he was beaten with a baseball bat Saturday, but a former lawyer for the assailant said it started with a sex tape. Here is the story Barton tells: "I pulled up to the barbershop and there was a guy in a hood and trench coat standing there," he said. "I opened the door and he started pounding me with a baseball bat." Barton, 74, said 71-year-old Benny Green -- who used to co-host Barton's radio show "In the Interest of the People" – hit him repeatedly...

    David Barton critics beware: There’s now a price to pay if you want to defame the popular historian, author and speaker with false and outlandish charges. Barton won a $1 million defamation judgment in August against two left-leaning candidates for the Texas State Board of Education. The pair, Rebecca Bell-Metereau and Judy Jennings, charged in a 2010 campaign video that Barton, a consultant to the Board, was “known for speaking at white-supremacist rallies.”
  • QUESTION: Book Mentioned on David Barton's Heritage Series

    I'm trying to find a school textbook about government mentioned on the American History Series show Jan 27, 2013 by Davide Barton. I believe he said it was the first textbook published for the State of Connecticut around the 1850s. He also said all of the thirteen states used it, and many states used it up until around the 1960s. I can't remember the title, but it was a tiny book with just four items: 1. The Declaration of Independence 2. The Constitution of the United States 3. George Washington's Farewell Address 4. [I can't remember] It ended with...

    America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling...

    Recently, an article appeared in Fredericksburg.com, complaining about a Fourth of July ad run by Hobby Lobby that included several quotes reflecting the religious heritage of America. (Several of Hobby Lobby’s different holiday message ads can be seen here). The Fredericksburg article claimed that three of the historical declarations made in the ad were inaccurate, but historical documentation demonstrates that it is the critics and not Hobby Lobby who were errant in their claims. A. Complaint in Article: As referenced in the ad, John Jay did write a letter in which he declared it "the duty, as well as the...

    Rick Santorum's near-miss in Iowa provides a reminder that, for many Republican voters (and not a few candidates), religion and politics overlap. If you need another reminder, though, consider this: recently, the Smithsonian has restored and put on display a weird and fantastic 19th century book known as "The Jefferson Bible." That's Jefferson as in Thomas, and this private, personal document offers a useful case study in how politics and Christianity have mixed it up in American history, right up to today. To understand Jefferson's Bible, you need to start with the one book he published in his lifetime: "Notes...
  • Beck & David Barton discuss Judicial Tyranny but no mention of Gingrich remarks

    Last night on Glenn Beck's GBTV.com television show, Glenn and historian David Barton discussed Judicial Tyranny where many recent Federal judges have been legislating from the bench creating a judicial tyranny. This discussion is remarkable close to the firestorm and headlines caused by Newt Gingrich's position that federal judges that cross the line when they outlaw school prayer and the mention of God at school graduations, should be brought before Congress to EXPLAIN their tyrannical judicial decisions. Remember, the constitution gives Congress the power to set up the court system. Congress in essence oversees the federal court system. In this...
  • Joe Barton Introduces Online Poker Bill HR 2366

    It’s amazing how a person’s media profile can change in just a year. Joe Barton has done a complete 180 in the eyes of many Americans, particularly poker players. If you remember, it was just 53 weeks ago the Texas Republican stood up at the congressional hearings investigating the BP oil spill and environmental disaster and Joe Barton apologized to British Petroleum for having to sit and answer for their destruction of the US Gulf Coast. Fast forward to Friday and Joe Barton is riding high among the poker playing public after he released his Internet Gambling Prohibition, Poker Consumer...

The time is now for Chairman Jaczko and the entire Commission to formally vote to fully release the staff’s complete and uncensored report.

    The bulb is back. House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R.,Mich.) has finally agreed to support a bill this summer that means lights out on the looming 2012 ban on the incandescent light bulb. Upton himself co-sponsored 2007 legislation making light bulbs illegal, a ban that has become a symbol of bipartisan Big Government run amok. Upton has come under increased pressure in recent weeks, sources say, after failing to follow up on a promise he made after assuming the committee chairmanship that he would hold hearings on reversing the ban. After months of paralysis — and with...
