Va. Abortion Extremist Democrat Kathy Tran Pulls GOP Challengers

Published

on

LORTON, VIRGINIA (February 3, 2019)  — Already, Northern Virginia Republicans are lining up to run against Delegate Kathy Tran (D-VA-42).  Tran is the freshman Delegate who notoriously sponsored a bill in the Virginia House of Delegates to allow the killing of an unborn baby up to the moment of birth.

The re-election of the entire Virginia House is happening this year, in November 2019.  In 2017, Asian-American Tran won the 42nd district previously held for 24 years by Republican Dave Albo — who retired — by defeating Republican Latina Lolita Mancheno-Smoak.

Republican Steve Adragna immediately began campaigning at Saturday’s pro-life protest at Delegate Tran’s legislative town hall at South County High School in Lorton, Virginia.  While others are joining the race, Adragna jumped right in at the rally.  (Rally organizers did not let him speak, presumably due to legal concerns when some of the groups are 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.)

In an incredible development, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)’s chief strategist, Doug Stafford, offered a “free campaign” to any Republican who would run against Delegate Tran.

While Virginia Republicans did not seem to need the encouragement to want to win back Tran’s district, the offer of assistance may open up the range of possible candidates to those who are not wealthy but qualified in other ways besides self-funding a campaign.

Doug Stafford tweeted on January 31, 2019,

“Anyone in Springfield Va area HD 42 want to run against this infanticide promoter and liar – DM me, I’ll run your race for free.”

While ‘free’ presumably means Stafford will not charge a salary for acting as campaign manager, this would still be a vast advantage — including because of the connections and instant credibility in fund-raising — for a candidate not already sitting on a massive warchest.

Tran cancelled her town hall at South County High School Saturday, but the Pro-Life protest still went forward anyway.  It was transformed from speaking directly to Delegate Tran in her town hall into a rally out on the very extensive front lawn of the high school and sidewalks.

Although many planning to attend believed the entire event was cancelled on both sides, and did not come out of that confusion, at least 750 to 1,000 Pro-Life Virginia voters gathered to share their concerns.  In addition, hundreds of cars driving past (seemingly searching for parking) honked and waved approval.

Tran’s presentation of her pro-abortion bill in committee exploded across news, talk radio, and the internet nationwide.  Such a presentation in committee is a routine part of moving any bill forward in the Virginia General Assembly.  Delegate Todd Gilbert (R-VA-15) asked Delegate Tran about her proposal.  Tran admitted that her sponsored legislation would allow an abortion up to the very moment of birth.  Gilbert had suggested a mother is in the throes of delivery — “she is dilating” (i.e., in the delivery room in the hospital) — and asked if the bill would allow an abortion even then.  Tran’s somewhat confused, hesitant response finally admitted that, yes, her bill would allow an abortion even during the process of a baby being born.  That video (General Assembly proceedings are televised routinely) created a national firestorm.

A complete video of the rally has been posted by the lead sponsor of the #ResistInfanticide rally, The Susan B. Anthony List.  Though they kicked off the effort, many Virginia organizations and national organizations with a strong local presence in Virginia quickly joined the effort. Speakers included Students for Life, the Diocese of Arlington, Olivia Gans Turner, president of the Virginia Society for Human Life,  and Chaney Mullins, of Divine Mercy Care.  Concerned Women For America joined and was represented by Penny Nance.   At least one speaker warned people not to forget all of the other Democrats who co-sponsored and voted for Tran’s bill, rather than focusing only on Delegate Tran alone.

Will Steve Adragna be the best candidate to win back the seat?  Northern Virginia Republicans are just beginning to grapple with a game plan.  Businessman Adragna appears to describe himself as a Republican centrist.  With few details yet clear, it is possible that Adragna will appeal to some, while others might want more of a fighter, as the candidates present themselves in more detail.  However, a candidate with the diligence and foresight to seize the moment and act quickly has much going for him.

Famous conservative (now former) Delegate Bob Marshall explained to Big League Politics that he and his wife Cathy are promoting a different candidate.  The Marshalls also explained that Ken Cuccinelli, former Virginia Attorney General, is promoting yet another candidate.  They reported hearing of several other candidates considering a challenge to now infamous Delegate Tran.   However, none of this appears to be in response to any of the other candidates, but rather a spontaneous explosion of interest among other candidates.  Most of these Republicans seem to be unaware as of yet that others are also running.

Bob Marshall explained that after decades in elected politics he is not interested in running again himself.  However, Marshall told this writer that he would consider being a campaign manager or advisor for other, younger conservative candidates.  Alongside Doug Stafford, Bob Marshall has intricate and intimate experience and knowledge of  the local region, down to knocking on individual doors throughout most of the neighborhoods.

Big League Politics asked Tim Hannigan, Chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, about a previous example when half-a-dozen conservatives were running against Sen. Joe May, perceived to be a “Republican In Name Only” (RINO).  The conservatives met together and chose one of them as the best positioned candidate rather than dividing the vote.  Hannigan responded that he would consider informally asking all of the candidates to meet privately together just to understand who all is running and to think about what is best for winning the seat back from the Democrats.

But such a discussion would be purely voluntary and purely for informational purposes.  A party Chairman does not have authority to decide who wants to run.  But events are happening so fast that most candidates are jumping in the race without knowing that other people are running.  Therefore, many candidates may be running only because they don’t know who else is running, too.  Hannigan does not have a position on any of the potential candidates.  He just wants to see all Republicans energized to participate and for some Republican to win the district this November.

The Fairfax County Republican Committee set up a big events tent to one side, and received an enthusiastic response.  Volunteers at the table told Big League Politics that they signed up roughly 100 new volunteers at the rally.  The mood among many attendees was that they could no longer stand by and watch.  It is time to join the fight and take action.

One retired man in his 70s told this writer that he felt guilty for not getting involved sooner, and failing to join in the struggle in the past helped create the current crisis.  He vowed to stay involved and not make the mistake of sitting on the sidelines any more.

Woke Leftists Upset Over Christian Organzation Setting Up Hospital for Coronavirus Patients

Published

on

Samaritan’s Purse, a charitable Christian organization that helps the poor and sick all over the world, has setup a temporary tent hopsital in New York City.

Most see this as an all around positive, but not radical LGBTQ activists and their allies.

Some Leftists in New York have complained of the organization’s traditional Christian beliefs on sexuality. They claim to believe that Samaritan’s Purse might treat LGBTQ patients with less consideration or care.

This nonsensical narrative reached Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s office, who has also now expressed concern. DeBlasio said,

I said immediately to my team that we had to find out ­exactly what was happening. Was there going to be an approach that was truly consistent with the values [of] New York City?

We’re going to send people over from [my] office to monitor. I’m very concerned to make sure this is done right. But if it is done right, of course, we need all the help we can get.

Samaritan’s Purse and its workers have done everything from risking their lives to serve Ebola patients in Africa to helping after tornadoes here in the states. They have also already been dealing with coronavirus in Italy, giving them much needed experience.

They are exactly who you want to show up in a time like this. The combination of experience, compassion, and dedication they have is very hard to match.

And no, they do not discrimate based on sexuality. They never have and there is no indication they ever will.

To suggest that they need to be monitored or that New York should be worried about their presense is not only unwarranted, it’s insulting.

DeBlasio is taking advantage of Samaritan’s Purse because he knows they, unlike him, are not utter degenerates. He knows that Samaritan’s Purse will do everything they can to help, despite knowing they are hated by the Mayor and his ilk.

This whole incident shows that Bill DeBlasio is a weak effiminate man who is more concerned with his public imagine than saving lives. He will accept the help, but insult those helpers, all while pretending he has displayed some sort of virtue.

This is outright bigotry, disguised with smooth talk.
