‘Pro-Life’ Ted Cruz Skips Vote on Budget Amendment to Defund Planned Parenthood

Published

A “true conservative” and alleged “pro-life” Senator skipped a crucial vote last week that would have given Republicans the opportunity follow through on the promise of defunding Planned Parenthood.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) opted to hit the campaign trail in Texas instead of voting on one of the top issues concerning his Republican constituents.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced an amendment last week to the Senate appropriations package funding the Departments of Defense, Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education that would have ceased all federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

The amendment was shot down by a vote of 45-48.

Turncoat “Republican” Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) voted “no” on the amendment, while Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Deb Fischer (R-NE), like Cruz, did not bother to vote.

Paul clocked Republicans on the floor of the Senate for failing to deliver on their promise to the American people to defund Planned Parenthood’s death factories.

“Planned Parenthood ends the lives of 320,000 babies each year,” he said. “That’s about 900 babies every day. Planned Parenthood receives over $400 million of taxpayer money. The government, with a wink and a nod, tells us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t spend the money on abortions, but everybody knows that taxpayer is really cross-subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortion bills. My amendment would end funding to Planned Parenthood. My amendment is already included in the House version [of the bill], and yet my amendment is now being blocked… by Republicans.”

When GOP establishment shills like Cruz campaign on putting a stop to the murdering of unborn children, all they are doing is lying to attract voters. With control of the House, Senate and Presidency, they have still failed to act.

Cowardly Cruz and his like-minded “Republican” ilk ought to hang their heads in shame – or better yet, join the other party.

Presidential Debates Set to Ignore National Security, Immigration, and Second Amendment

Ignoring the issues important to Americans.

Published

The 2020 presidential debates are now guaranteed to ignore the critical national political topics of immigration and the Second Amendment, with only a passing discussion on national security.

In a remarkably biased favor to the Joe Biden campaign, moderator Kristen Welker de-emphasized foreign policy as a planned topic of the third debate, structuring it around a reliable list of leftist-friendly topics. The planned topics are the pandemic, race relations, climate change, national security & “leadership,” a colored term for Welker castigating the President over what she sees as mean tweets.

SV News has reported that Welker has scrapped foreign policy questions alltogether after the revelation of Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings involving his father with Burisma.

The third (de facto second) presidential debate will include yet another segment on “Race in America,” in which a leftist moderator will harangue the President on the existence of supposed “white supremacist” groups and demand the bow to the elitist lie of “white privilege.”

Immigration was entirely ignored during the first presidential debate, and it seems more than likely that it’ll be swept under the rug during this one, unless President Trump goes out of the way to mention his policy accomplishments on the matter. The Second Amendment has been wholly ignored, as well.

Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien penned a letter to what he termed the BDC (Biden Debate Commission) questioning as to why the traditional focus on foreign policy in the third presidential debate was being replaced, at the very moment Hunter Biden’s highly suspicious personal foreign business dealings have been placed under scrutiny.

More than 50% of American citizens describe both these issues as “very important” in recent polling- more so than climate change and “race and ethnic inequality.” Yet, seemingly endless racial conversations have been featured at both presidential debates, and expounded upon at length at both electoral town halls last week.

Joe Biden has promised that he will not deport any illegal aliens, except for those convicted of violent felonies. This would represent a dramatic repudiation of American immigration law in itself, and could lead to truly massive new levels of illegal immigration. This stands to be totally ignored in the debate process.

It’s time to scrap the biased Commission on Presidential Debates. These events should be conducted with one liberal journalist and one conservative journalist, as opposed to corporate news hacks who masquerade as “neutral” while arranging a leisurely walk in the park for the pro-establishment Democrat candidate.
