The Middle East is on fire and being overrun by radical Islam.


Washington - The Middle East is on fire and being overrun by radical Islam.  The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is on the march, Libya is burning, and Hamas is attacking Israeli civilians.  The world is looking for leadership at this difficult time.  Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are spearheading the effort to defeat radical Islam in the region.  Congressman Stockman made the following statement Friday:  “I want to thank the governments of Egypt and the United Arab Emirates for taking the lead in confronting radical Islamists in the Middle East.  Several days ago, UAE pilots flying out of Egyptian airbases attacked Islamist fighters in Libya.  This is a good example of two nations coming together to combat a regional threat.  Hopefully, more will follow in the future.”    “Unlike our current Administration, the governments of Egypt, under the leadership of President Sisi, and the UAE recognize the danger posed by the radical Islamic groups fighting for control of Libya.  ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood have made evident their movements do not stop at borders.  The United States should support the efforts of the two nations, as they attempt to roll back Islamic Fascism.” “President Sisi is leading the peace effort between Israel and the Palestinians, while at the same time defending the region from Islamic Fascism.”      Read More

RED FLAG: White House continues to dodge questions about payoffs to terrorists


WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) released the following statement Tuesday morning: On June 5th I sent a letter to President Barack Obama asking whether any compensation was provided by anyone to the Haqqani terrorist network in exchange for the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal. Yesterday I received a response from Assistant Secretary of Defense for Legislative Affairs Elizabeth King.  Secretary King states “ we (the U.S. Government) did not pay any money to secure Sergeant Bergdahl’s release.” I appreciate Secretary King’s straightforward response.  However, that was not the question I asked President Obama. I specifically asked President Obama:  “Did you or anyone authorized by or associated with your Administration, authorize any form of compensation, direct or third party, in exchange for Bergdahl?” Secretary King’s response is what I expected.  Obviously the U.S. Government would not make a direct payment to terrorists, which is why that was not what was asked. Additionally, if such an arrangement took place I doubt the Obama White House would have notified the Defense Department, who would not have supported paying terrorists. I asked about third party financing because Sgt. Bergdahl was released by the Haqqanis in exchange for five Taliban terrorists.  That is unusual, as the Haqqani network is not directly related the Taliban and would have received no significant benefit from the release of Taliban militants. There is the distinct likelihood of an arrangement in which President Obama would release Taliban terrorists in exchange for Taliban commanders purchasing Berghdal’s ransom from the Haqqani network. Such an agreement by the Obama White House would provide material support to terrorists on two fronts, releasing Taliban militants and funding Haqqani terrorism. That is why Americans are disturbed that the Obama administration has continued to dodge the following questions, which were originally sent to the White House June 5. 1)      Did Bergdahl’s captors, or anyone associated with his captivity, request renumeration in exchange for Berghdal?  2)      Did you or anyone authorized by or associated with your Administration, authorize any form of compensation, direct or third party, in exchange for Bergdahl? 3)      If you or anyone authorized by or associated with your Administration, authorized any form of compensation, direct or third party, in exchange for Bergdahl would you deny it? 4)      Would you agree that cash payments to the Haqqani Network, by any party, assists the Network in carrying out violent and terrorist acts? 5)      Would you agree that cash payments to the Haqqani Network, by any party, constitute material support to terrorists? 6)      The late Michael Hastings, reporting for “Rolling Stone” in 2012, wrote, “’It (Bergdahl’s release) could be a huge win if Obama could bring him home,’ says a senior administration official familiar with the negotiations. ‘Especially in an election year, if it's handled properly.’”  Was the Bergdahl exchange agreement discussed with or shared with anyone on the White House’s political staff?  What was the date and nature of the communication? The Haqqani network, which held Bergdahl for five years, funds its terrorist activities in part by ransoming prisoners.  The ransom for a uniformed American service member would greatly benefit the group’s terrorist activities. The Haqqani network generally does not release Westerners unless they receive a large payment.  It would be hard to believe they would release Bergdahl in an exchange that does not directly benefit them. By passing these questions off to the Defense Department the White House continues to raise red flags about its potential relationship with terrorists. The White House continues to refuse to directly answer a simple question.  Did the President approve a deal in which a third party paid the Haqqani terrorists for Berghdahl’s release, and if he did would the White House deny it? Americans deserve a straightforward answer as to whether their Commander-In-Chief approved or was aware of payments to terrorists in exchange for Sgt. Bergdhal. -30- Read More

Stockman introduces real border bill to build fence, detain gang members, cut off welfare


WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman Thursday introduced legislation that would end the current border crisis by building a full double fence along the US/Mexican border, deploying additional law enforcement to the border, detaining gang members, punishing countries that refuse to accept repatriated illegals and banning welfare benefits for amnestied illegals. The SECURITY Act (Safely Exacting Cautious Useful Rules for Immigration This Year) is numbered H.R. 5316. “Border Patrol agents tell us this invasion started when Obama announced DREAM Act amnesty for young illegals.  Border Patrol agents also tell us since then hordes of illegals cross the border, walk right up to Border Patrol and say ‘We are here because Obama will take care of us,’” said Stockman.  “Obama can end this crisis right now by dropping his amnesty scheme.  If he won’t, this bill does it for him.” “Gang members with face tattoos openly tell Border Patrol agents about the murders they committed in Central America.  Immigration laws prevent agents from detaining these bragging killers,” said Stockman.  “Under Obama’s amnesty scheme these killer gang members are set loose in the United States to later get amnesty.  Obama doesn’t care.  The SECURITY Act puts a stop to that by detaining gang members and stopping Obama’s plan to give them amnesty.” “These illegals say they are coming because Obama promised them welfare benefits.  The invasion stops once Congress passes this bill, which cuts off welfare benefits to these illegals even if Obama issues an Executive Order giving them amnesty,” said Stockman. The bill also punishes countries that refuse to accept their repatriated illegals by terminating trade and aid benefits. Stockman’s  SECURITY (Safely Exacting Cautious Useful Rules for Immigration This Year) Act: Section 2. Metrics •           Establishes metrics to evaluate the security of the border by defining operational control. •           Penalizes the budget of the DHS Undersecretary for Management for failure to achieve operational control. Section 3. Fencing •           Requires completion of double-layered fencing along the entire Southern border. •           Requires initial plan and periodic progress reports on status of construction. •           Penalizes the DHS Secretary’s budget for failure to submit plan and progress reports. Section 4. Border Patrol •           Requires House and Senate Committees to be notified if there are closures of Border Patrol stations and the reasons for the closure and plans for redistribution of personnel. Section 5. National Guard •           Deploys additional members of the National Guard to support Border Patrol. •           Provides federal assistance for state border control activities. Section 6. Detention •           Allows detention of dangerous criminal aliens beyond 6 months. Section 7. Gangs •           Prohibits foreign criminal gang members from receiving asylee or refugee status. Section 8. Judges •           Requires the Attorney General to submit annual requests to Congress for immigration judges. Section 9. Facilities •           Requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to submit annual requests to Congress for detention facilities. Section 10. Incentives •           Closes the additional child tax credit loophole. •           Prohibits an alien deemed to have lawful presence via executive order or policy directive from being defined as a qualified alien for purposes of public benefits. -30-   Read More

Stockman sends condolences and support to Malaysia and Ukraine


WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36,) a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, sent the following letter Thursday to the ambassadors of Malaysia and Ukraine: Ambassadors Jamaluddin and Motsyk, Innocent men, women and children from nations across the world were killed today by militants dedicated to aggression and occupation in Ukraine. This senseless tragedy is the result of a regime who feel they can act against sovereign nations and innocent citizens with impunity.  When the initiation of force is not repelled, aggression grows unchecked.  When those who value peace exude weakness, violence is visited on the innocent. Whether Russian or Russian-backed forces deliberately targeted a civilian flight or mistook a Boeing 777 for a military cargo plane is irrelevant.  This act is an atrocity committed in Ukrainian airspace. Russian should withdraw all troops and equipment from Ukraine and Crimea, and hand over those who authorized or carried out this strike so they may be prosecuted to the full extent of international law and institutions.  The flight data recorders at the scene should also be recovered and delivered to a neutral authority on the matter. This is a time to find out what happened, and to find out how to prevent such an atrocity from ever happening again. Americans are united in condemning this horrible act and whoever perpetrated it. Regards, Congressman Steve Stockman Member, House Foreign Affairs Committee -30- Read More

Stockman condemns attack on civilian flight, urges Russia to cease aggression


WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36,) a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement Thursday: The tragic targeting of a civilian airliner is a deadly reminder of the cold brutality of Russia’s illegal occupation.  Putin should immediately withdraw all forces from Ukraine, relinquish all claims over Ukranian and Crimean territory and hand over any and all troops who have committed war crimes.  Russia should also relinquish the plane’s flight data recorders and hand them over to a neutral third party. -30- Read More

Stockman seeks to encourage domestic rare-earth manufacturing


WASHINGTON—Recently, Congressman Stockman introduced H.R. 4883, the National Rare-Earth Refinery Cooperative Act, in response to China’s growing monopoly on the rare-earth mineral industry. It is the House companion bill to S. 2006, which was introduced in the Senate by Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO). Since then, this legislation was referred to the Committee on Armed Services. This bill seeks to bolster our economy and restore our manufacturing base by establishing a Thorium-Bearing Rare-Earth Refinery Cooperative. This entity would be privately financed by rare-earth mineral consumers and suppliers and would not burden American taxpayers. In addition, it would ensure environmental safety, result in more rare-earth production, and end the Department of Defense’s reliance on Chinese manufacturing for weapons systems.  “I’m glad I introduced the National Rare-Earth Refinery Cooperative Act in the House,” said Congressman Stockman. “Our nation needs to establish this cooperative, so American corporations no longer have to relocate their manufacturing facilities and jobs to China and relinquish control of their intellectual property rights to have access to a rare-earth supply chain. “This legislation will pave the way for economic independence, more American jobs, and stronger national security. As China has used its rare-earth mineral monopoly as an economic weapon, now is the time to create this cooperative for the advancement, growth, and security of our nation.” -30- Read More

Stockman files motion ordering the arrest of Lois Lerner


> CNN, New York Times also endorse the House’s power to arrest   WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman Thursday filed a resolution directing the House Sergeant-At-Arms to arrest former IRS Director of the Exempt Organizations Unit Lois Lerner on charges of contempt of Congress. “Asking the Justice Department to prosecute Lois Lerner for admittedly illegal activity is a joke.  The Obama administration will not prosecute the Obama administration.  How much longer will the House allow itself to be mocked?  It is up to this House to uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President,” said Stockman. “Democrats have openly stated the House has the powers to arrest those in contempt of Congress and imprison them in the Capitol.  I don’t want to go as far as Democrats in exercising the House’s powers to arrest.  Ms. Lerner will be held in the D.C. jail,” said Stockman. Under the resolution Lerner would be held in the D.C. jail and would have full legal rights and access to an attorney. “It’s time to for House to stop tacitly endorsing this administration’s illegal activity by refusing to hold him accountable.  I expect Democrats to defend and even praise criminal activity.  The question is whether Republican leadership will join them in mocking the House and breaking the law,” said Stockman. Contempt of Congress is a criminal offense (Act of January 24, 1857, Ch. 19, sec. 1, 11 Stat. 155.)  Congress’ power to hold someone in contempt has been recognized by the United States Supreme Court four times. Democrats admit the House has the power to arrest those in contempt of Congress.  “I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” former House Speaker and current House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi told The Huffington Post just days ago, on June 20.  “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol. If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.” CNN has also recognized Congress’ power to arrest those in contempt of Congress, going so far in 2008 as to televise potential locations where Rove would be held. The New York Times also recognizes the House’s power to arrest.  “From the Republic’s earliest days, Congress has had the right to hold recalcitrant witnesses in contempt — and even imprison them — all by itself. In 1795, shortly after the Constitution was ratified, the House ordered its sergeant at arms to arrest and detain two men accused of trying to bribe members of Congress. The House held a trial and convicted one of them,” the Times wrote in a Dec. 4, 2007 editorial. “In 1821, the Supreme Court upheld Congress’s right to hold people in contempt and imprison them. Without this power, the court ruled, Congress would “be exposed to every indignity and interruption, that rudeness, caprice, or even conspiracy, may mediate against it.” Later, in a 1927 case arising from the Teapot Dome scandal, the court upheld the Senate’s arrest of the brother of a former attorney general — carried out in Ohio by the deputy sergeant at arms — for ignoring a subpoena to testify,” the Times wrote. The text of the resolution, H.Res. 664, follows. Providing for the arrest of Lois G. Lerner to answer the charge of contempt of Congress IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Mr. STOCKMAN submitted the following resolution, which was referred to the Committee on ______________ RESOLUTION Providing for the arrest of Lois G. Lerner to answer the charge of contempt of Congress Whereas Lois G. Lerner, former Director, Exempt Organizations, Internal Revenue Service, has been found to be in contempt of Congress for willfully and intentionally refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena duly issued by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, thereby obstructing the Congress in the lawful exercise of its constitutionally mandated legislative powers; and, Whereas such behavior is an insult to the dignity of the House of Representatives, an attack upon the integrity of its proceedings, works violence upon the rights of the House collectively, and therefore implicates the long-recognized inherent power of the House to punish and commit for contempt, privileged under the Constitution; and, Whereas recent history with similarly contumacious and insolent witnesses such as Eric Himpton Holder, Junior, strongly suggests that the present statutory judicial rubric set up to punish and reform such insubordinate and obstructionist witnesses would be ineffective in this case, as it is likely that the US Attorney for the District of Columbia would refuse to perform his lawful duty to bring the offending contemnor Lerner before a Grand Jury and prosecute the same for her misconduct pursuant to section 104 of the Revised Statutes of the United States (2 U.S.C. 194) and section 102 of the Revised Statutes of the United States (2 U.S.C. 192); and, Whereas the executive and judicial branches’ prolonged and dawdling failure to prosecute Attorney General Holder’s insolent contempt of the 112th Congress strongly suggests that a like proceeding against contemnor Lerner would be similarly futile, and the threat of such prosecution has clearly been insufficient to encourage contemnor Lerner to be honest and candid with the Congress regarding the heinous actions of the Internal Revenue Service; Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Speaker issue his warrant, directed to the Sergeant-at-Arms, or his deputy, commanding him to arrest and take into custody forthwith, wherever to be found, the body of Lois G. Lerner, and bring her to the bar of the House without delay to answer to the charge of contempt of its authority, breach of its privileges, and gross and wanton insult to the integrity of its proceedings, and in the meantime keep the body of Lerner in his custody in the common jail of the District of Columbia, subject to the further order of the House. While in custody, Lerner shall enjoy no special privileges beyond those extended to her fellow inmates, shall not access any computer or telephone, and shall not be visited by anyone other than her counsel, clergy, physician, or family. -30- Read More

Stockman amendments would dismantle Obama green agenda


WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman Thursday filed eight floor amendments to the 2015 Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, which would block Obama administration environmental initiatives and protect homeowners. “Barack Obama is forcibly injecting job-killing poison into the American economy.  I hope the House will stop bowing to Obama, and instead adopt these amendments,” said Stockman.  “The House needs to stop playing footsie with Obama and actually do something to limit the abuse of executive power.  I hope politics as usual will not prevail.” Stockman’s amendments would entirely defund the EPA, block the proposed “Waters of the United States” rule, block Obama’s proposed CO2 caps, shut down the government agency that funded Solyndra and other failed green projects, thwart the practice of “sue and settle” in which environmentalist groups have a tacit agreement with the EPA to sue the agency to force adoption of radical initiatives, block attempts to ban lead bullets, speed up consideration of offshore drilling permits and protect homeowners from drastic increases in flood insurance premiums. The amendments are as follows. (The following are short descriptions, and not the verbatim text of each amendment.) Stockman Amendment #1 “End the EPA” No funds shall be appropriated for the Environmental Protection Agency. Stockman Amendment #2 “Block the WOTUS Land Grab” No funds shall be appropriated to the Environmental Protection Agency or Army Corps of Engineers for any program or activity that studies or implements the proposed “Waters of the United States” rule. Stockman Amendment #3 “Block Obama’s CO2 Rule” No funds shall be appropriated to the Environmental Protection Agency for any program or activity that studies or implements Obama’s proposed cap on carbon dioxide emissions. Stockman Amendment #4 “No More Solyndras” No funds shall be appropriated for the Department of Energy’s Loan Program Office. Stockman Amendment #5 “Stop Sue And Settle” No grants or any other funds shall be awarded by the Environmental Protection Agency to any organization engaged in litigation against the Agency. Stockman Amendment #6 “No Backdoor Gun Control” No funds shall be appropriated to any federal agency or program limiting or prohibiting the use of lead bullets on public lands or waters. Stockman Amendment #7 “End The Energy Roadblock” No funds shall be appropriated to the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of the Interior or Department of Energy if all offshore drilling permits filed with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management or Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement are not acted on in a fair and timely manner. Stockman Amendment #8 “Responsible Implementation of Flood Insurance Reform” No funds shall be appropriated for the implementation of any agency, program or activity under the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012 that does not allow communities that were developing new maps by the end of 2013 to maintain the grandfathered rates that are subject to change in Section 207 of the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (PL.112-141) or considers the level of federal funding or participation in the flood control structure project when determining the level of protection that the project provides the community. -30- Read More

Stockman asks Biden to cancel speech to group that cheered American deaths in Iraq


> Markos Moulitsas bragged about his remarks the next day, boasting ‘I struck back’ against dead Americans   > Stockman: ‘Democrats should be ashamed.  It’s like the White House wakes up every morning thinking of new ways to express hatred of the military’ WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman Thursday called on Vice President Joe Biden to cancel his upcoming speech at Netroots Nation, a liberal conference founded and sponsored by a liberal website that cheered the deaths of Americans in Iraq. “Why is the White House honoring a group that cheered when innocent Americans were killed and displayed as trophies by terrorists?,” said Stockman.  “Biden’s appearance is an insult to Iraq veterans.  Honoring extremists who cheered an al Qaeda attack is not the message Obama should send to Iraq right now.  Democrats should be ashamed.  It’s like the White House wakes up every morning thinking of new ways to express hatred of the military.” On March 31, 2004, four American civilians making a food delivery were attacked and killed by al Qaeda terrorists in Fallujah, Iraq. Their corpses were burned, dragged through the streets and then hanged from a bridge as trophies.  Markos Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the blog “DailyKos,” openly cheered the news the terrorist attacks killed Americans. “I feel nothing over the death of merceneries [sic]. They aren't in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them,” Moulitsas wrote the next day of the four dead Americans. The Americans never shot back.  Al Qaeda echoed Moulitsas’ remarks, displaying a sign that read “Fallujah is the cemetery for Americans.” Moulitsas refused to apologize.  The day after his remarks, he went even further, writing “I was angry that these mercenaries would leave their wives and children behind to enter a war zone on their own violition [sic].  So I struck back.” Netroots Nation was started by DailyKos in 2006 as the “Yearly Kos Convention.”  The name was changed to Netroots Nation the next year.  This year’s convention will take place in Detroit July 17-20.  Biden will speak during a special Thursday afternoon general session. DailyKos remains a “Premier Sponsor” of the event, along with Google, Facebook and the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee and Democratic Governors Association, both official Democrat Party organizations. -30- Read More

House members join Stockman in #BringBackOurMarine tweetfest


WASHINGTON—Besides introducing H. Res. 612, which would require President Obama to impose sanctions on Mexico until Sgt. Tahmooressi is released, Congressman Stockman has turned to Twitter to help raise awareness for the marine held in Mexico. Since late May, fifteen House members have joined Congressman Stockman to raise awareness for Sgt. Tahmooressi on Twitter by putting out tweets with the hashtag #BringBackOurMarine. These House members include Congresswoman Wagner, along with Congressmen Meadows, Salmon, Bentivolio, Fincher, Flores, Lamborn, Jones, Perry, Grimm, Southerland, Aderholt, Harris, Broun, and Labrador. “I’m glad these House members have also turned to Twitter to reassure the American people they want Sgt. Tahmooressi released immediately. It seems President Obama is picking and choosing which military service men to bring back home, as he has chosen to release Bowe Bergdahl and ignore Sgt. Tahmooressi,” said Congressman Stockman. “Of course, ‘hashtag activism’ is not the only way to bring attention to our nation’s key issues. However, Twitter is an excellent tool members of Congress can use to reassure the American people they care about important issues like Sgt. Tahmooressi’s unjust imprisonment in Mexico. “This online initiative has been an ongoing effort since late May. Besides taking legislative action, I hope more members of Congress use Twitter to reassure the American people we also want President Obama to bring back our marine Sgt. Tahmoressi.” -30- Read More

Steve Stockman was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012, with a vision of limited government, strong support for American families, and a robust national defense.

Rep. Stockman serves the people of the 36th Congressional District of Texas, which was created as a result of the 2010 census and includes the counties of Chambers, Hardin, Jasper, Liberty, Newton, Orange, Polk, Tyler, and portions of southeastern Harris County.

The district is home to NASA’s Johnson Space Center, the research and training facility for all manned space exploration and the location of the popular Mission Control Center.  As a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, Rep. Stockman highlights the importance of a vigorous space exploration program to keep the U.S. at the forefront of space technology.

The district also contains the highest number per capita of oil and gas refineries and downstream petrochemical plants in the world.  Rep. Stockman is working for commonsense regulatory relief for the nation’s oil and gas industries, which will lead to less dependence on foreign oil and more American jobs.  The completion of the Keystone XL pipeline, for instance, will lead to the creation of tens of thousands of new employment opportunities.

A fierce defender of constitutional liberties, Rep. Stockman is a leader in defending the Second Amendment.  He introduced the very first pro-gun bill in the House in 2013 (H.R. 35, to repeal federal gun free zones).

When the President threatened to bypass Congress and enact gun control through Executive Orders, Rep. Stockman introduced, along with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky in the Senate, the “Restore the Constitution Act of 2013,” which would nullify any anti-gun orders.

Rep. Stockman, who serves as Vice Chairman of the House Second Amendment Task Force, also authored legislation to strip funding to the UN should that body attempt to restrict American’s gun rights.

As a 100% pro-life supporter, Steve authored the 2013 Sanctity of Life Act, which declares that life begins at conception, and which also limits the federal courts’ jurisdiction in cases dealing with the unborn.

Congressman Stockman sits of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and plays an active role in uncovering the truth about the attack of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

Stockman cofounded the South Sudan Caucus, in support of the world’s newest nation.  South Sudan, which is a majority Christian nation, suffered decades of oppression and genocide from North Sudan, and still endures attacks despite the existence of a peace agreement.  Stockman has traveled to Juba, the nation’s capital, as well as to other parts of Africa, in support of medical missionary work.

Prior to his election in 2012, Steve served in Congress from 1995-97.

Some of the awards and commendations awarded Steve were the “Taxpayers Best Friend Award” by Citizens for Tax Reform; a consistent “100 percent” rating by the American Conservative Union; “Taxpayer’s Hero Award” by Citizens Against Government Waste, and “Pro-Family Congressman of the Year” by the American Family Association.

Steve holds a B.S. in Accounting from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. He and his wife of 25 years, Patti, live in Clear Lake.
