Stockman returns from official State Department tour, backs Israel, exposes media bias

‘The United States have no greater ally in the Middle East than Israel’
‘You must be conservative when you’re meeting with the media and the media claim they can’t find you’
Reporters knew of trip but claimed otherwise, ‘We decided to hold out and see how long reporters would pretend they didn’t know I was on official business’


HOUSTON – Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) returned Monday from a ten-day official congressional delegation to Egypt, Israel and Russia with State Department officials.  There, Stockman and State Department officials met with and held press conferences with foreign leaders on matters of U.S. interests.

There, Stockman reiterated U.S. support for Israel and met with Egyptian and Russian officials on counterterrorism efforts.

Stockman is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where he serves on the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations and the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats.

“State Department officials and I conducted press conferences in every city we visited.  I’m proud to support Israel, and to support Egypt and Russia in their fight against terrorism,” said Stockman.  “The United States have no greater ally in the Middle East than Israel.”

Stockman also used the official trip to expose the partisan bias of the American media, who claimed they did not know where he was.

“We were with media and public officials every day and conducted press conferences.  Reporters knew I was on an official State Department trip but refused to admit the truth because it would have spoiled their bizarre stories,” said Stockman.  “We decided to hold out and see how long reporters would pretend they didn’t know I was on official business.”

“You must be conservative when you’re meeting with the media and the media claim they can’t find you,” said Stockman.  “I must have found the one place the American media won’t go, a pro-Israel press conference.”
