Cruz Fights Alone to Stop Senate from Funding Planned Parenthood and Iran Nuclear Deal

By Jerry A. Kane

Last night Ted Cruz couldn’t get his Republican Senate colleagues to back his proposed amendment to stop funding Planned Parenthood for one year and to prevent the Obama administration from using funds to implement the Iran nuclear deal until Congress can examine the additional agreements or “side deals” between the terrorist state and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

“You know, Obama has negotiated a catastrophic nuclear deal with Iran. Republican leadership goes on television all the time and rightly says this is a catastrophic deal. I would suggest that if we actually believed the words that are coming out of their mouths, then we should be willing to use any and all constitutional authorities,” Cruz said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tore a page from former Democrat Leader Harry Reid’s playbook and “filled the tree” with amendments and blocked Cruz from offering his amendment during a voice vote.

McConnell used the same tactic in July to block Cruz from offering an amendment on the Iran nuclear deal to the highway bill. Mike Lee (R-Utah) was the only senator to back Cruz on offering his amendment.

Cruz then asked for a roll call vote on overruling the decision, but his Republican colleagues sat on their hands, refusing to give him a “sufficient second” (11 senators) to allow the vote. For the record, roll call votes have been routinely granted as procedural courtesy to senators in both parties.

“What does denying a second mean? Denying a recorded vote. Why is that important? When you are breaking the commitment you’ve made to the men and women who elected you, the most painful thing in the world is accountability,” Cruz said.

Overruled by McConnell and his deputies, his colleagues too frightened to oppose a bloated spending bill to fund executive amnesty, Obamacare, Planned Parenthood, the Iran deal, and other Democrat-Party priorities, Cruz stood alone on the Senate floor. But he wasn’t done and remained undaunted in criticizing the leadership and his colleagues.

He took to the microphone and delivered a powerful, brilliant indictment against the corrupt Republican establishment and its symbiotic relationship with the Democrat party and K Street lobbyists.

During his hour-long speech, Cruz chided Republican leadership for repeatedly surrendering to Obama; he exposed the dysfunction of Washington; and he lamented the betrayal of the electorate.

It takes a man of principled conviction and extraordinary courage to stand before the Senate, where collegiality is touted as the supreme virtue, and indict party leadership and colleagues to their face for their hypocrisy, dishonesty, and cowardice.

Cruz is that lone voice crying out in the wilderness for repentance to a reprobate Congress damned by God awaiting its day of reckoning. Right now, he is America’s most fearless orator and greatest statesmen, and it’s painful to know that most Americans will never realize that.

“[T]his is no longer a nation of independent individuals. … The whole world is becoming humanoid – creatures that look human but aren’t. The whole world, not just us. We’re just the most advanced country, so we’re getting there first. The whole world’s people are becoming mass-produced, programmed, numbered, insensate things…”

In this latest video, Holly O’Donnell, a former Blood and Tissue Procurement Technician describes her most difficult experience while working for StemExpress inside a Planned Parenthood clinic.

When a full intact alive and kicking baby appeared on screen lying on a stainless steel table, I stopped watching the video and cried. Is there no end to this hell hole? This is evil, and these people are wicked.

“The worst is not So long as we can say ‘This is the worst.'”

The question we should be asking isn’t, “What kind of people would do such horrible things to a human being”?; the question we should be asking is what kind of people sits idly by while such horrible things are being done and says and does nothing to stop it.

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.

The following excerpts were taken from my latest youtube offering, “Abortion Is Not a Good Thing.“:

“The baby might be in the woman’s body, but the baby is not the woman’s body. It has its own DNA, its own genetic code, has its own blood type, has its own functioning brain, has its own functioning kidneys, its own functioning lungs, its own dreams.”—Matt Chandler, Lead Teaching Pastor of The Village Church

“If abortion was a good thing, there wouldn’t be so much emotional damage from it. End of story. … The environment is morbid; you can just feel it. You can hear screaming; you can hear crying … If there was a higher gestation and the technicians needed it, there were times when they’d just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there is no way they would know. “—Holly O’Donnell, Ex-procurement Technician, LLC

“Let’s have an investigation of those people who were trying to ensnare Planned Parenthood in a controversy that doesn’t exist.” Nancy Pelosi is Democrat Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives

“For my daugher, for my granddaughter, for people all across Massachusetts and all across this country, I stand with Planned Parenthood, and I hope my collegues will do the same.”—Elizabeth Warren, Democrat Senior U.S. Senator from Massachusetts

Of Mice and Men and Aborted Babies

By Jerry A. Kane

Medical researchers are implanting organs from aborted babies into rodents to grow human organs in mice and rats. Yep, you read it right! A human organ such as a kidney is removed from an aborted baby and implanted into a mouse or rat for the purpose of medical research.

Duke University medical student Eugene Gu co-authored a study released in January in which he said, “Our long-term goal is to grow human organs in animals, to end the human donor shortage.”

Moneypenny, get me a priest. “I must confess that I lost faith in the sanity of the world.”

Gu and his colleagues obtained human fetal kidneys from StemExpress of Placerville, California. The company supplies researchers with tissue from deceased adults and aborted babies.

To date, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released five undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood affiliates harvesting and selling aborted baby parts to medical procurement companies like StemExpress, one of PP’s primary buyers of aborted baby body parts.

In the fourth video, Planned Parenthood personnel are sifting through parts of aborted babies to salvage parts that can be sold to medical procurement companies.

The undercover videos also show what looks like money changing hands between Planned Parenthood affiliates and medical procurement dealers such as StemExpress.

 “When politicians talk about defunding Planned Parenthood, they’re talking about blocking millions of women … and young people from life-saving preventive care. … They’re talking about cutting people off from the health care provider they know and trust,” Hitlery Clinton

Cate Dyer, CEO and founder of StemExpress, said that all the women donors consented to donating their aborted babies for parts. Dyer’s company has acquired a restraining order against CMP regarding further release of videos that involve StemExpress.

George: We’re gonna get a little place.

Lennie: Okay, yeah, we’re gonna get a little place and we’re gonna…

George: We’re gonna…

Lennie: …have…

George: We’re gonna have a cow, and some pigs, and we’re gonna have, maybe, maybe, a chicken. Down in the flat, we’ll have a little field of…

Lennie: Field of alfalfa for the rabbits.

George: …for the rabbits.

Lennie: And I get to tend the rabbits.

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.
