Special Session, Round 2

Friday was the final day of the first special session and the Texas House Democrats were AWOL for almost all of it, making it clear that holding our democracy hostage is more important to them than working for everyday Texans.

Here’s a quick preview of what the House Dems accomplished while the Texas Senate was hard at work—

I want to thank Gov. Abbott for calling the legislature back for a second special session, which began Saturday, August 8. The work we will complete is critical to all Texans.

All of the bills on this special session call were passed by the Texas Senate during the regular legislative session this spring, and died in the House when the Democrats decided to walk out and turn their backs on Texans. They were again passed by the Senate during the first special session in July, and AGAIN, died in the House when the Democrats decided to flee to D.C.

With Gov. Abbott promptly calling us back for another special session, I want Texans to know the Texas Senate immediately went to work Saturday to do our important job. I look forward to a productive special session for the people of Texas.

The Texas Senate has already passed 5 of the important bills listed on the call. Make no mistake, the Texas Senate will pass these bills over and over again until the House finally has a quorum.

America’s Newsroom — Special Session, Border Crisis & More…

I caught up with Dana Perino on America’s Newsroom, where we talked about the hypocrisy of this administration: lecturing states on COVID while the border crisis worsens & infected migrants are released into Texas communities. Absurd! Click here to watch.

Biden Has Turned His Back on Our Country

When it comes to dealing with COVID and the border, Biden has turned his back on our country. I joined Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla to talk about it. Here’s a brief clip from our conversation.

Republicans Are Ready to Work

Unlike the Dems, when Republicans in Texas are elected to do a job, they show up to do that job! I was on the air with my friend Rick Roberts to talk about the second Texas Special Session. In case you missed it, click here to listen.

“Forget the Alamo” Debunked

“Forget the Alamo was not written for smart people, and by the time you finish reading this debunking, you will find that the authors are their own audience.”

Two more notable Texas historians debunk the liberals’ “Forget the Alamo” myth. Mark Pusateri and Michelle Haas did a great job laying out the facts. Have 15 minutes to spare? I encourage you to read it here.

Biden’s Backwards Thinking

The Biden administration is planning to require foreign visitors to be fully vaccinated. Yet thousands of migrants are pouring into our country every single day, without any testing, and the Biden White House doesn’t think twice about it. The lack of common sense in the White House has resulted in total insanity and it’s only getting worse.

Texas Robbery Conference

I had the great honor to address over 500 members of law enforcement at breakfast in Fort Worth this morning. The nearly 80,000 men and women of law enforcement in Texas are the finest in the nation.

I told them Texans have their back because they have our back every day.

May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.
