House Republicans Threaten Government Shut Down if PP Is not Defunded

By Jerry A. Kane

The Republican-controlled Senate will go through the motions and conduct a sham vote tomorrow evening on a stand-alone bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

The sham legislation is designed to deceive low-information conservatives and knee-jerk pro-lifers into believing Senate Republicans actually want to defund PP. Had Senate Republicans really wanted to defund PP, they would have done it by including an amendment to the Highway Bill where the Republican majority in the Senate could have easily passed it with 50 votes. But Senate Majority Leader and chief Obama enabler Mitch McConnell opted instead to adopt Harry Reid’s underhanded “fill-the-tree” trick to stop Republican Senator Mike Lee from offering the amendment to defund PP.

And now the pseudo-conservative/pro-life McConnell is sending up this sham legislation which of course will be filibustered by Senate Democrats and resoundingly defeated because he won’t get the 60 votes he needs to pass it. Then he and the Republican Senators can stand boldly before the party faithful and say they tried to defund PP, but those abortion-loving Democrats filibustered the bill and kept it from happening.

No voice

McConnell and Senate Republican can get away with this con because they know “conservative” voices on Fox News such as Charles Krauthammer and George Will and “pro-life” voices on talk radio like Bill Bennett and Jay Sekulow will downplay or ignore McConnell’s trick with the Highway Bill and blame the filibuster for defeating Republican efforts to de-fund PP.

So now there’s a group of 18 House Republicans issuing idle threats to hold up any spending bill to fund the federal government that does not contain language to de-fund PP. This ploy, too is outright laughable.

“We must act to fully defund Planned Parenthood. Please know that we cannot and will not support any funding resolution — an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, a continuing resolution, or otherwise — that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams,” wrote the 18 Republicans in a letter to House leaders

As he has done before, House Speaker John “Tammy Faye” Boehner will seek out the necessary Democrat support to pass any future spending bills.

And when that happens, the gang of 18 will collectively sigh, “We tried!” to Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, et al. Then Levin will go back to hawking his book, while Hannity summarily ring his hands, and Michael Savage belly aches about the excessive grease in the stir fry at Two Wong’s Don’t Make-A-White.

Eighteen I get confused every day

Eighteen I just don’t know what to say

Eighteen I gotta get away

Do you ever wonder whether or not the smoke McConnell is trying to blow up you ass is carcinogenic?

UPDATE:

Last Friday U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar to his face on the Senate floor, and now he is accusing the Kentucky Republican of leading the effort to keep taxpayer funds going to Planned Parenthood.

Today Cruz came out and said, “The McConnell-Reid leadership team has no interest in cutting off one penny of funds to Planned Parenthood, which is why leader Mitch McConnell just blocked a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood. To the millions of Americans who rallied in November believing if only we got a Republican majority in the Senate something would be different, this was a clarifying and a sad moment.”

McConnell Blocks Amendments to Defund Planned Parenthood and Pass Kate’s Law

By Jerry A. Kane

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked amendments to defund Planned Parenthood and pass Kate’s Law, whereby deported illegals who return to the United States would receive a mandatory five-year sentence in a federal penitentiary if convicted.

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s number one abortion provider which has received nationwide attention resulting from an undercover sting of released videos showing PP executives discussing the sale of harvested baby organs from late-trimester abortions, currently receives more than a half billion dollars from taxpayers annually.

The Republican squish has repeatedly said that he supports defunding Planned Parenthood, yet when it came time to put up or shut up, McConnell blocked the amendment to the Highway Bill that would have defunded PP.

To block the amendments, the Obama enabler used “Whorehouse” Harry Reid’s tactic of “filling the tree.” Reid made the tactic popular when he was Democrat majority leader to block Republicans from offering amendments to Democrat bills.

“Filling the Tree” is when the senate leader, who controls the process, uses up the allotted time for amendments on a bill by loading it up with small, insignificant measures in order to run out the clock to prevent other amendments from being introduced.

As a half-hearted attempt to appease critics, McConnell agreed to “fast-track” a stand-alone bill to defund Planned Parenthood; but a stand-alone bill would be subject to a Democrat filibuster, and would require 60 votes to override the filibuster, which means Democrat support that he wouldn’t get. An amendment would only need 50 votes to be included in the Highway Bill.

The Tea Party Express Is Useless

By Jerry A. Kane

Democrats control the executive and legislative branches of the federal government, and they have been relentlessly forcing socialism down the craw of the American people because progressives are in total control of the Democrat Party.

To solve the problem, simply vote out the Democrats and strip the power from the progressives. So what in the name of Sam Hill are the leaders of the Tea Party Express trying to prove by endorsing Idaho Democrat Walt Minnick for Congress?

Although little love is lost between Minnick and his fellow Democrats in DC and Idaho, the truth is he supports big government programs, not limited government, and isn’t the growth of federal government the real source of frustration for the tea party faithful? 

Minnick voted against the resolution to remove Charlie Rangel as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee for ethics violations and against the Republican Study Committee’s (RSC’s) blueprint to restrain spending and to reduce the budget.

But the indelible stain on Minnick is that he voted for Nancy Pelosi as speaker in 2008. His vote for the stalwart progressive proves he can’t be trusted. He’ll get in line like Bart Stupak and fall on the sword if his vote is required to advance the progressive agenda.

The idea of party loyalty suggests that a conservative Republican will do more to stop the progressive onslaught than a “conservative” Democrat, so why then would the Tea Party Express leaders endorse an Idaho Democrat over conservative Republicans for an important congressional seat?

Perhaps the leaders are so inept that they can’t piece together how the machinations of Pelosi and Harry Reid control their fellow Democrats to advance Brother O’s progressive agenda, or they don’t view the progressive one-party rule as a problem.
