WNBA team owner Kelly Loeffler was picked by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp earlier this week to replace departing Sen. Johnny Isakson at the end of the year against the wishes of President Donald Trump.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Loeffler’s ties to pro-abortion groups, but phony “pro-life” activists are coming out to rally the troops on her behalf.
Joshua Edmonds of the Georgia Life Alliance is shilling for Loeffler, claiming that a brief meeting he had with the future U.S. Senator nullifies her long-standing record.
“What we heard consistently from her is that she is unapologetically pro-life, that she supports Georgia’s heartbeat bill, which is the most landmark piece of legislation our state has ever passed,” Edmonds said. “She has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to pro-life candidates around the country.”
Edmonds’ assessment leaves out the fact that Loeffler has donated to many Democratic Party politicians throughout the years, and only ingratiated herself to the GOP establishment after donating $750,000 to a Super PAC backing failed globalist presidential contender Mitt Romney in 2012. He also makes excuses for her WNBA team’s support of Planned Parenthood.
“In regards to the connection between Planned Parenthood and the WNBA, everything that we’ve been shown on record is that there is a connection between the league and Planned Parenthood, not to Ms. Loeffler and Planned Parenthood,” Edmonds said.
“She said she’s never given a dollar to Planned Parenthood or to abortion providers, and we have no record that that’s not the case,” she added.
This is an outright falsehood, as Loeffler’s WNBA franchise has been directly involved in a kickback scheme that funnelled ticket money to Planned Parenthood:
Loeffler also co-owns the Atlanta Dream, a franchise in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). The WNBA has never turned a profit throughout its entire existence, and serves as little more than an outlet for violent lesbian brutes to act out their aggression on a public stage.
The WNBA is steeped in social justice rhetoric, typically blaming sexism for the lack of interest in their dismal product, and Loeffler’s franchise has participated in a revenue-sharing scheme that funneled money into the coffers of Planned Parenthood.
Through the “Take A Seat, Take A Stand” program that operated in 2018, the WNBA officially joined the resistance against President Donald Trump. It sent $5 from every ticket sold during a WNBA game throughout the 2018 season to a wide variety of extreme leftist special interest groups such as Planned Parenthood, MENTOR, GLSEN, It’s on Us, Bright Pink, and The United State of Women…
Loeffler’s franchise, the Atlanta Dream, did in fact take part in this program, and they promoted the idea on their official team website.
A story in Glamour about the “Take a Seat, Take a Stand” program noted that participation was not mandatory. Loeffler’s franchise chose to participate in this program that helped murder babies in the womb, furthered the LGBT agenda as it relentlessly targets children, and helped fan the flames of the #metoo hysteria that undermines due process.
In addition, Loeffler serves on the board of Georgia’s largest abortion provider, Grady Memorial Hospital of Atlanta. Legitimate pro-life activists have come out against her appointment to the U.S. Senate vehemently.
“We’re past the point of ever being willing to accept sort of a passive argument for someone’s pro-life advocacy or pro-life position,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony’s List. “All we’ve seen is evidence of her leadership positions and what she’s failed to do with them.”
“After the Senate gains made by conservative and pro-life candidates in the 2018 election, this would be a huge setback,” said Tom McClusky, president of March for Life, in a statement.
Gov. Kemp did a great disservice to the authentic pro-life movement by appointing Loeffler to the U.S. Senate over President Trump’s preferred choice, Rep. Doug Collins.
Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan
Another victory for the war party.
Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.
The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.
“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.
“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.
“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”
The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.
“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.
“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.
The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
