    House conservatives on Wednesday revolted against a massive bipartisan deal to raise the debt ceiling and bust spending caps, complaining that the GOP could no longer lay claim to being the party of fiscal responsibility. “I’m not only a ‘no.’ I’m a ‘hell no,’ ” quipped Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), one of many members of the Tea Party-aligned Freedom Caucus who left a closed-door meeting of Republicans saying they would vote against the deal. It’s a “Christmas tree on steroids,” lamented one of the Freedom Caucus leaders, Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.). “This spending proposal is disgusting and reckless — the...

    Rep Gohmert appeared on Fox News Sunday to talk about the FISA abuse memo which was released Friday.

He wants to get to the facts and what I’m asking him for is that we as the Judiciary Committee subpoena the transcripts from the FISA court hearings, the four...

He was employed with Debbie Wasserman Shultz and other congressional members. He is also a suspect in a cybersecurity investigation, having been banned from congressional networks in February.

    (Newsmax) – Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert told the Washington Examiner that he believes the FBI will not recommend an indictment for Hillary Clinton in the email probe case. The Republican lawmaker said he believed the FBI would announce that they were “just laying out the evidence,” and leave it to the Justice Department to issue any indictment. “Director Comey is a pretty straight-up guy, and I don’t think he’ll pull any punches,” Gohmert said, referring to FBI Director James Comey. “But I could also see him avoiding all the controversy by just saying, here’s all the evidence, it’s not our...

    My SS News ^ | 4/2/2016
    This week, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz joined an amicus brief on behalf of 22 members of the Texas congressional delegation in support of private landowners along the Red River. The Bureau of Land Management has recently made waves by claiming thousands of acres of privately owned Texas land along the Red River. It has done so by utilizing — in apparent violation of a nearly 100-year-old Supreme Court precedent and tradition — an arbitrary and bizarre gradient boundary survey method that has adversely impacted private landowners. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) joined Cruz in the brief...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) called GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s charge that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was a primary supporter of Chief Justice John Roberts “ludicrous” and “ridiculous.” Gohmert argued that Trump should not be questioning Cruz’s judgment on Supreme Court nominations since he has donated to Democratic politicians in the past. “I thought one of the best points made all night long was to point out the hypocrisy,” Gohmert, who has endorsed Cruz, told PJM at the Conservative Political Action Conference. During the most recent GOP debate in Detroit, Trump addressed Cruz directly, saying, “So we’re listening to the all-talk,...

    It's well known that many Republicans in Washington do not like Sen. Ted Cruz, but the full extent of that antipathy is coming to light this week as several current and former lawmakers say they prefer Donald Trump as the GOP nominee, although they have little regard for either man. Some GOP consultants and strategists started the rumblings in recent days. Then Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad told Republicans in his state to oppose Cruz because of the senator's opposition to ethanol subsidies. But the story broke wide open on Wednesday when former Senate Majority Leader and 1996 Republican presidential nominee...

    GOP candidate Ted Cruz may not be popular among his fellow senators, but a growing number of House conservatives who have been dubbed as the "Cruz Caucus" are backing the controversial Texan's campaign, and Rep. Louie Gohmert said Thursday that's because they want a true conservative in the White House. "I didn't endorse anybody in 2012 and we ended up with the only Republican nominee who could not criticize Obamacare because they really did model it after Romneycare," the Texas Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "This time, I thought early on I need to get behind whoever...

(Photo by Patrick Svitek) LAMONI, Iowa — Ted Cruz and his campaign are offering their harshest and most extensive criticism yet of Marco Rubio since the U.S. Senate colleagues began clashing over immigration and national security issues.Speaking with reporters before a town hall here, Texas' junior senator repeatedly pushed back on a TV ad airing in Iowa that suggests Cruz "voted to weaken America's ability to identify and hunt down terrorists."

    There is truly a war taking place throughout the world. Radical Islam is at war with Western civilization that is not currently part of its caliphate. Though the Obama administration is out to convince you that there's no war, or that climate change is our country's biggest threat, the bloodbath in Paris proves the contrary without doubt. Though we are not engaged in defending ourselves fully, the one-sided war goes on, allowing our enemy to get stronger and more radical. America is now faced with a stinging reality, one that threatens the very heart of our national security. President Obama...

    Three Texans, limited government constitutional conservative Republicans; Senator Ted Cruz, Representative Louie Gohmert and Governor Greg Abbott are demonstrating how governing according to conservative principle is not only good policy, but good politics.    As our friend Rick Manning observed in an excellent article for NetRight Daily, in just one day last week, Ted Cruz took on Operation Choke Point through an Obama nominee for Justice who should be rejected, Chinese human rights abuses, sanctuary cities that release violent illegal alien offenders, and led a hearing giving voice to U.S. victims of Palestinian and Iranian terrorism.  Cruz followed this one-day blitz of policy entrepreneurship with a bill to designate the...

    Just how badly did Barack Obama blow up our relationship with Israel? According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, there was a point in 2012 when the US believed Israel was ready to carry out a commando raid against the Iranian nuclear reactor at Fordrow. In response, we sent another aircraft carrier to the Gulf and readied attack aircraft. in case a regional war broke out after the strike. This raises an interesting question: On whose behalf would we have intervened? Nerves frayed at the White House after senior officials learned Israeli aircraft had flown in and...

    In an explosive report we learn that ever since 2012, the United States has been spying on Israel in order to prevent the Jewish State from attacking suspected Iranian nuclear sites, according to Friday’s Wall Street Journal. The White House had sent an additional aircraft carrier to the region after learning that Israeli aircraft had flown into Iranian airspace in what U.S. officials feared was a test run for an attack on Iran’s Fordow plant. The carriers had attack aircraft on board prepared to respond to any Israeli attack on Iran.

    Congressman Paul Ryan has received enough support from the House Freedom Caucus to secure his nomination for Speaker of the House, and he may have gained some of the support from conservative efforts going on behind-the-scenes. The House Freedom Caucus, a small but fierce group of conservatives, succeeded in their efforts to oust John Boehner from Speaker of the House, but scrambled to find a nominee for Speaker that would satisfy their list of demands and rule changes to the Republican Conference. The group initially endorsed Florida Representative Daniel Webster; however, a closed-door meeting pushed them into supporting Congressman Paul...

    Twenty-six Republicans, led by presidential candidate Ted Cruz and Rep. Louie Gohmert, have called on the Smithsonian Institution to immediately remove a bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, saying that honoring her "is an outrage." "Ms. Sanger was an avowed advocate of eugenics and the extermination of groups of people she deemed as 'undesirables," the GOP legislators said in a letter sent Friday to Kim Sajet, director of the National Portrait Gallery.... "Specifically, Ms. Sanger singled out African Americans, among other minority groups, as deserving to be subjected to such horrific and inhumane treatment," the letter said. "Honoring a...

    HOUSTON, Texas — Today, the Cruz for President campaign announced the endorsement of Texas Congressman Randy Weber. Originally a small business owner, the second-term Congressman has been a strong conservative voice in Congress for fiscal discipline, national security, and protecting life. Weber won election in 2012 for the seat previously held by Ron Paul.“We have an impressive field for the 2016 elections, but we need a President who will march into the White House on Day One with their conservative values in one hand and the Constitution in the other. I believe Ted Cruz is the candidate who will do...

    Twenty-five Republicans rebelled against John Boehner (R-Ohio), who won a third term as Speaker on Tuesday. The 25 Republicans, including three freshmen, didn't coalesce around a single alternative candidate. Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.), whose nomination for Speaker became public just minutes before the vote, attracted the most votes at 12. Meanwhile, the other two long-shot candidates, Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) only received three and two votes each. Additionally, freshman Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) voted "present" rather than voting for anyone. And two Republican lawmakers voted for people who aren't even members of the House: Rep. Gary...

"Due in part to the massive shift in power away from the most accountable representatives of the people to a President and five judges, we have needed leadership with vision for the future that did not continue the downhill slide.
