Mitch McConnell plays political games while the US Senate votes “NO” to defund the taxpayer-funded baby-killing and organ harvesting entity.
I’ve been saying we as a nation are become worse than the Nazis when it comes to perpetrating mass murder and evil. The Republican-led Congress proves this fact themselves when it could not muster the votes to move a motion to the floor to DEFUND Planned Parenthood after videos have been released of the abortion company’s admissions and practices of killing babies after being born alive and butchering them for money.
Mitch McConnell, talking out of both sides of his mouth and rectum, knew this was going to happen when he stopped an amendment to defund PP from being added to the already pork-laden Highway Bill last weekend. The Ruling Class lackeys are insisting McConnell was engaging in parliamentary maneuvers so he can bring this vote up again later.
Like abolishing ObamaCare “root and branch”?????
The same kind of ‘maneuvering’ McConnell is known for doing that produces NOTHING but anal wind?
As usual – the GOP is engaged in kabuki theater: sound bytes to the media for public placating, while acting to ensure Planned Parenthood is protected.
More telling is McConnell’s near-silence about this horrific investigation’s revelations until pressed about it, and the refusal of the GOP caucus to even discuss this so it makes the Praetorian news media. Nothing. The fact that the senate uses a failed cloture motion to STOP debate is an artifact of the senate’s complete dysfunction as a vessel of preserving or protecting life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The GOP simply have no intention of ever defunding Planned Parenthood, anymore than it intended to defund and repeal ObamaCare. They want the issue to be used to fundraise. Period. That’s all. Defunding the leading abortion mill in the country takes away their carrot to swindle campaign donations from moral Americans who oppose the mass murder of the unborn.
Only one Senator, Ted Cruz is willing to shut down government in order to defund this holocaust industry – but Mitch McConnell has emphatically restated he will NOT ALLOW THE GOVERNMENT TO SHUT DOWN for ANY REASON.
Once again SURRENDERING before any fight could be attempted.
McConnell, John Boehner and the Republicans know what’s going on in these Planned Parenthood videos. If killing babies and selling the organs for profit while getting a taxpayer subsidy is not worth shutting the government down, what is? Obviously NOTHING is worth shutting government down to these Political Priests on the Potomac.
The second-leading Republican in the Senate, pro-life Senator John Cornyn, said there should be no government shutdown.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) sought Tuesday to quash a growing speculation that Republicans would shut down the government over Planned Parenthood. “We’re not going to go there,” he said. “I wish there was some way to convince all of you guys that there will be no government shutdown.”
Obviously taking a cue from the GOP Leader:
Mitch McConnell amid Planned Parenthood uproar: No more shutdown
Chopped up dead babies mean nothing to these beltway pigs because it’s happy hour time!
Rand was ranting about about 58 votes to defund PP.
Not even close. I doubt McConnell even whipped this vote. They don’t care. Not interested at all.
One game McConnell plays is take a hot issue (like Planned Parenthood) and delay any action until the fever pitch is gone, and it’s out of the news.
All the Republicans have to do (all the ever had to do) is refuse to support any spending bill that funds PP. I can think of nothing better than a government shutdown.
This is the LOTE Party (lesser of two evils) though. They will completely fund PP in the next budget. It will happen something like it has in the past: it will come in multiple staged votes with promises of amendments which won’t happen (Iran deal, TPP), will have a tax cut or increase with a promise to defund PP later (Fiscal Cliff), or it will simply fund PP at current levels and raise funding elsewhere (which will get funneled back to PP) [the last shutdown, Ryan/Murray budget].
The fact remains that McConnell boxed himself into this corner all by himself. He chose to block Rand Paul’s defunding amendment to the highway bill that would only have needed 51 votes to pass, in exchange for this standalone bill that needed 60 votes to pass.Ted Cruz says that McConnell did that to protect his back-room deal for the Ex-Im bank, because Obama would have vetoed the bill with defunding in it. It was all for nothing because the House refused to take up McConnell’s highway bill and recessed for August.So now McConnell is left with the stain of this Nay vote, and an explanation that is falling on deaf ears.
Perhaps another reason why McConnell supports what Planned Parenthood is doing is the following fact:
So apparently in his mind there is no problem with what Planned Parenthood was discovered to be engaged in. After six years – there’s still NO opposition anywhere to any evil, and one day – they will all be held to account for refusing to do what God would expect His People to do:
Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work? – Proverbs 24:11-12
The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact fetuses. Intact fetuses are “just a matter of line items,” says Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast Melissa Farrell. In a separate conversation, Farrell talks about how she can make more money by dissecting “human cadavers,” and that it’s all “just a matter of line items.” But when the buyers want an intact cadaver, Farrell’s more than willing to make sure they get it. The dissection video is incredibly disturbing. “The organs come out really, really well,” one technician says. They go into detail about the manipulation of dilation to improve organ harvesting. Late-term abortions use a two-stage dilation, for instance. The technicians and the investigators spend quite a bit of time identifying the human organs and bones in the dissection, once again underscoring that these are not “clumps of cells” but human beings being destroyed.
