Dan Crenshaw’s Votes Betray Texas’ Core Values, Possibly Unmasking a Hidden Agenda

Dear Reader,

Many of us had high hopes for Dan Crenshaw, believing he was a faithful conservative ally who would steadfastly represent our values. While we deeply respect his service as a Navy SEAL, his actions in Congress have unfortunately not mirrored the conservative principles he once proclaimed. This website aims to shed light on the discrepancy between Crenshaw’s rhetoric and his voting record—the only true and accurate measure of his representation.

Our goal is to provide conservatives, whether staunch supporters or those on the fence, with a clear view of how Crenshaw has turned away from the constituents he vowed to serve.

But don’t take our word for it – the proof can be found below.

Dan Crenshaw votes to trade liberty for safety

H.R. 7521 – The Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act

Why This is a Bad Vote

H.R. 7521 seeks to curb the influence of applications controlled by foreign adversaries, ostensibly to protect national security. However, the bill dangerously expands government oversight and control, potentially infringing on constitutional freedoms.

By narrowly focusing on applications like TikTok, Dan Crenshaw is turning a blind eye to the broader issues at hand – like China’s influence in our supply chains, its role in the fentanyl crisis, and its ownership of U.S. debt.

Moreover, data privacy concerns are not unique to foreign apps, as American big tech companies have similar practices.

The passing of this bill could potentially set a dangerous precedent, paving the way for increased government interference in other technology areas and personal freedom.

Dan Crenshaw’s Gaslighting

Dan Crenshaw justifies this bill as a measure against China – yet he ignores the fact that our own government is spying on us under FISA and manipulating us through American-owned big tech companies.

In fact, he’s on record stating that he knows that American intelligence agencies are not manipulating Americans.

Yes, really – check out the video below.

By singling out TikTok, Crenshaw is promoting a false security narrative. This narrative misleads constituents about the true effectiveness of such measures, potentially paving the way for government expansion at the cost of genuine solutions. This is a cause for concern.

It’s worth noting that Dan Crenshaw, the advocate of this bill, happens to own stock in Facebook’s parent company, Meta. This potential conflict of interest raises questions about his true motives.

Dan Crenshaw votes to provide welfare to illegal aliens

H.R. 7024 – Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act of 2024

Crenshaw’s Vote: YEA/AYE

Roll Call 30
Additional Resource

Why This is a Bad Vote

H.R. 7024 expands the Child Tax Credit by $33 billion, mainly through cash payments. Despite illegals continuing to pour across our Southern border, it doesn’t change the policy of allowing illegal aliens with U.S.-born children to claim this credit, effectively supporting “anchor babies.”

Dan Crenshaw’s support for this bill contradicts his commitment to border security.

Dan Crenshaw’s Gaslighting

By backing legislation that indirectly benefits illegal aliens, Crenshaw’s actions mislead constituents who believe in his stance for a secure border, revealing a gap between his public assertions and legislative choices.

Dan Crenshaw votes for DEI & to renew FISA

H.R. 2670 – National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2024

Why This is a Bad Vote

The 2024 NDAA was a chance to equip our military properly, focusing solely on keeping our nation safe. Instead, it falls short and even questions our military’s integrity by failing to stick to its core mission.

This bill extended the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) without any critical reforms, missing a crucial chance to correct government oversteps in surveillance – a clear violation of the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. What’s more, it included support for issues like Biden’s abortion tourism fund, taxpayer-funded gender transition surgeries, Chief Diversity Officers, and a climate agenda — all backed without objection by 147 Republicans, including Dan Crenshaw.

Dan Crenshaw’s Gaslighting

Crenshaw talks a good game about being a conservative guardian of our Constitutional Rights. Yet, his YEA vote not only went to renew FISA, in direct conflict with the 4th Amendment’s protection against unwarranted searches, but also supported policies that stray far from conservative values.

It’s bewildering: professing to champion our freedoms while his actions suggest otherwise, essentially gaslighting voters. When actions don’t line up with promises, especially on matters as critical as our privacy and military integrity, it forces us to question the authenticity of those commitments.

Dan Crenshaw misses vote on resolution to impeach Mayorkas

H.Res. 863 – Impeaching Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security, for high crimes and misdemeanors

Vote Date: 11/13/23
Crenshaw’s Vote: ABSENT

Roll Call 645

Why This is a Bad Vote (he didn’t even show up)

The resolution to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas addressed the significant issue of border security, particularly relevant given the influx of over 8 million illegal entries into the U.S. since President Biden’s tenure began. This situation deemed a failure of the government’s constitutional responsibilities, significantly impacts communities in and around Dan Crenshaw’s district, such as East Montgomery and NE Harris Counties.

Despite Crenshaw’s previous calls for Mayorkas’ impeachment, he was suspiciously absent for this vote.

Dan Crenshaw’s Gaslighting

Compared with his vote in favor (roll call 37) on February 6th, Dan Crenshaw’s inaction in November presents a confusing message. It sends mixed signals about his commitment to border security and accountability, especially considering the direct impact on his constituents from the surge of illegal entries affecting communities in his district.

Dan Crenshaw votes for reckless spending & open borders

H.R. 5860 – Continuing Resolution

Vote Date: 9/30/23
Crenshaw’s Vote: YEA/AYE
View The Bill
Roll Call 513
Additional Resource

Why This is a Bad Vote

The U.S. is already in a financial crisis and must stop reckless spending. Congress struggled to make a budget for 2024 on time. Instead, they chose to keep spending as much as they did in 2023, which is already too high.

Rep. Kay Granger, who sponsored the bill, suggested we should temporarily keep paying for government programs at the same high levels as last year. This bill covered government spending from October 1, 2023, to November 17, 2023, and included extra money for disaster relief and ongoing health and flight services.

The problem is that this bill did nothing to reduce unnecessary government spending and didn’t address the issue of securing our southern border.

Dan Crenshaw’s Gaslighting

On September 29, 2023 (the day before), Dan Crenshaw voted YEA to a a different bill (the Spending Reduction and Border Security Act – H.R. 5525) that would have cut government spending by 30% and given full funding to defense and border security. This would have helped control spending and secure our border. But the next day, September 30, 2023 – he voted YEA again, but this time for the Continuing Resolution, a bill that just keeps spending high and does nothing for the border.

This flip-flop confuses people. It’s like he’s playing a trick, making it look like he cares about spending and the border one day, but then does the opposite the next.

Other members, including House Freedom Caucus members Eli Crane, Lauren Boebert, Chip Roy, and Troy Nehls, along with Republicans like Thomas Massie, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Wesley Hunt, and Morgan Luttrell stuck to their guns and voted NO to this reckless spending.

So, why did Crenshaw vote for a good bill one day and a bad one the next?

Dan Crenshaw votes for increased immigration

H.R. 4665 – Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2024

Vote Date: 9/28/23

Why This is a Bad Vote

This bill, the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act of 2024, passed the House on September 28, 2023. It encourages increased immigration. As illegal aliens pour into our country at our southern border, this move will change the U.S. by shifting who lives here and how they might vote.

When Congress decided on money for 2024, Rep. Scott Perry introduced an amendment to cut out the over $2.5 billion in this bill meant to fund this increased immigration. But, on September 28, 2023, this amendment was voted down by a count of 311 to 121.

Dan Crenshaw was one of the 311 who voted NAY.

Eli Crane, Lauren Boebert, Byron Donalds, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Chip Roy, Thomas Massie, Jim Jordan, Wesley Hunt, and others supported the amendment.

Dan Crenshaw’s Gaslighting

Crenshaw says he wants to secure our borders, but voting NAY on this amendment tells a different story. His actions don’t match his words, which brings doubt about the truth behind his intentions by saying one thing and doing another.

Dan Crenshaw votes to put Ukraine First & America Last

H.R. 2670 – National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2024

Why This is a Bad Vote

Sending over $113 billion to Ukraine while the U.S. faces a $33 trillion debt and Americans struggle financially is irresponsible.

During consideration of the fiscal 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 2670), Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) offered an amendment prohibiting using federal funds to provide security assistance to Ukraine.

Dan Crenshaw and a majority of the House rejected the amendment.

This rejection contrasts with the urgent issues at the U.S. Southern border and the economic pressures on American families, raising questions about prioritizing foreign interests over domestic well-being.

Dan Crenshaw’s Gaslighting

Dan Crenshaw’s gaslighting can be seen in his public support for border security and fiscal responsibility, contrasted with voting for substantial aid to Ukraine amidst the U.S.’s $33 trillion debt and domestic struggles.

This discrepancy between his stated positions and actions misleads constituents, presenting a facade of prioritizing American interests while actions suggest otherwise. It undermines genuine concerns about the national debt and local hardships, confusing the public on where priorities truly lie.

Dan Crenshaw co-sponsors Disease X Act of 2023

H.R. 3832 – Disease X Act of 2023

Introduced: 6/5/23
View The Bill
Additional Resource

Why This is Alarming

The Disease X Act of 2023, co-sponsored by Dan Crenshaw, aims to prepare for unknown viral threats by enhancing government powers to develop medical countermeasures. This legislation could lead to unchecked government expansion in health crisis management and raise concerns about the rush of potentially unproven treatments (like the Covid Vaccine).

For constituents, Crenshaw’s support for this bill is alarming due to potential implications for personal liberty and government overreach, contrasting with conservative values of limited government and individual rights.
