Ben Sasse Gets Roasted By Pro-Lifer for His Weak Leadership

Published

on

Pro-life advocate Hadley Arkes Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is disappointed with Ben Sasse’s spineless leadership.

Arkes is the mastermind of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that protects babies who survive abortion.

In Arkes’s view, Sasse and other establishment Republicans failed to follow through with his original plan and punish Democrats for their pro-abortion efforts.

“That has been my complaint about Ben Sasse, is he didn’t stick with it. Timidity or want of imagination is why … people [have] been so slow with picking up the fact that this kind of thing really resonates with the public.”

Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act earlier this year and Senate Democrats stopped it in its tracks last month.

Arkes said the legislation should have included a preamble that he originally drafted. In Arkes’s view, this legislation would function as a vehicle for Congress to assert its power over the issue of abortion. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would be the first step, as Congress would gradually assert its right to regulate all forms of abortion.

According to Arkes, he had lobbied the senator to have his preamble language added on to the bill, but they did not want to derail Sasse’s version of the bill, which left it out.

Arkes drew up the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in 1988 and it gradually made its way into Congress. It finally became law in 2002, but it did not have much teeth as far as penalties were concerned.

According to Princeton professor Robert George, who is a friend of Arkes, the 2002 bill was a compromise that threw a bone at pro-lifers and provided cover for moderate Democrats who wanted to avoid being seen as being pro-infanticide while avoiding attacks from pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL.

There has been little traction to pass penalties since the 2002 version of this bill was passed.

However, a tougher Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act has gained a resurgence ever since Virginia Governor Ralph Northam endorsed the ideas of allowing abortions up to the point of birth or not protecting infants born alive. Sadly, this bill died on a 53-44 vote.

Arkes still wants Republicans to use his legislation to attack Democrats and keep the issue alive.

Sasse, who’s a seasoned defender of legacy institutions like the military-industrial complex and a favorite son of legacy institutions, is no threat to the political establishment. For these reasons, pro-lifers would be wise to not put meaningful pro-life legislation in Sasse’s hands.

All too often, establishment Republicans water down their bills or make half-hearted efforts to pass meaningful legislation. However, their efforts are always lauded by naive political gatekeepers and make for good fundraising material.

This is how the DC swamp and its access-based lobby appendages operate.

Pro-lifers should look for another champion in the Senate. Ben Sasse simply doesn’t cut it.

CAUCUS CHAOS: Democrat Mouthpieces Try to Downplay Bernie’s Victory Because of Volunteer Shortages

Published

on

In an effort to downplay the inevitably of Bernie Sander’s victory at the Nevada caucuses, CNN political analyst Laura Barrón-López was reporting about chaos taking place throughout caucus sites in the state.

She first Tweeted, “New: POLITICO has heard from multiple Democrats, campaigns on the ground that there is a shortage of volunteers at caucus sites Story is developing… 1/”

Then she followed up in another Tweet, stating “NSDP party officials are telling campaign representatives that there’s a deficit of volunteers across the state, and so they are asking representatives of campaigns to act as precinct chairs, per multiple sources on ground.”

Barrón-López continued talking about the shortage of volunteers: “Per Dem source: ‘I’m at Spring Valley High School and a lot of the Nevada Dem Party volunteers did not show up. They are worried about the precinct chairs showing up as well.’”

With Sanders winning, the Democrat establishment is clearly on the ropes.

They are trying to pull every rationalization possible to downplay and not recognize Bernie Sanders’ victories.

The Democrat leadership is clearly rattled and they’re starting to come to grips with the reality that Donald Trump will practically be a shoo-in for a second term.
