Do you know what really bothers me about politics? It’s when I see real evil at work right in front of us and our leaders do nothing about it. I’m talking serious stuff where the devil is clearly at play. A prime example is what’s going on at Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).
There’s no doubt that this company is doing bad things. There’s no doubt they’re breaking the law. They’re “harvesting” body parts of little babies whose mom’s decided to kill them before they’re born. They can call it abortion. They can call it whatever they want. But they’re killing babies. It seems that whether this action is legal or not goes back and forth depending on who’s sitting on the Supreme Court bench.
Claims of Planned Parenthood & Affiliates Committing Felonies Shown on Camera
What Planned Parenthood does goes beyond just killing babies. They carefully dissect the little ones piece by piece. Then they sell off the body parts. They claim they don’t make money. But there’s strong evidence that shows that’s a lie. And some of the doctors use special procedures so they can get to body parts that have higher prices in the marketplace – like the head. And many mothers are put through longer, more painful procedures – something they don’t know when they sign up thinking they’re helping scientists to help people.
The techniques look a lot like partial-birth abortions. By the way, partial-birth abortions are illegal in the U.S. It’s a felony. But there was PPFA’s chief doctor bragging about it to undercover investigators.
“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver; because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, said PPFA’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola. “I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact,” she added, as she pleasantly sipped on her wine. She didn’t know there was a hidden camera when she spoke. It appears she confessed to felony to reporter who was pretending to want to buy the body parts. But has anything been done? Nope.
There’s Laws on the Books to Hold these Felons Accountable – So Why All the Hearings
Make no mistake, there are established laws that could lock these people up. Laws that also come with hefty fines. So you might be asking yourself why are there so many Congressional hearings on Capitol Hill over something that is so clear cut. There’s two already going on and another one about to start. Well it gets down to another major problem in politics. It’s not good enough to just be right. You have to be armed with more than a good heart determined to do the right thing. You better also come packed with a great strategic plan and perfect timing.
Right now the GOP is scrambling to find a way to take this place down – or at least revamp it. Some of their actions have promise. But some can get them into real trouble in the upcoming 2016 election.
It’s on evenings like this that I take a deep breath, roll up my sleeves and go put on another pot of coffee. I know it will be a long night. There’s no way I’d be able to sleep until I sift through the muck and come up with viable solutions. So here’s what we’re facing.
Fiorina’s Flub and Chaffetz Cover-up (At least that what the other side is saying)
Carly Fiorina comes across as a confident, sharp world business leader. She sure knows how to get people’s attention. And she certainly knows how to present winning arguments. But there’s another value expected in politics that many newbies overlook – honesty! Even the appearance that you’re underhanded can kill you in politics. Even if it isn’t true. And that’s never been more important than now.
The poll numbers prove it. Look at Donald Trump. He’s acing all the polls except one. Honesty. Both Trump and Clinton have been seen as the front runners. Yet the two have the worst ratings in honesty of everybody. And that single fact of American’s distrust of them may keep the candidates from winning.
Fiorina may have also stepped into the dishonesty land of no return. During the CNN debate Fiorina made comments about PPFA that so far she has been willing to give evidence that it’s true.
Opponents are accusing Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), head of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, of hiding PPFA exonerating evidence that would show Fiorina is wrong. They say he’s refused to provide unedited tapes that could show that the story she told was manipulated by edits and stock footage.
Congressional Freedom Caucus’ Threats of Shutdown Could Hurt GOP in Elections
Once again, the ultra-conservative radicals in Congress are pushing for a shutdown. Quite frankly, it’s scary. This group, the Freedom Caucus, has about 30-40 Members. Just enough to immobilize the rest of Congress. Their goal is to disrupt government in the name of freedom and the Constitution. But they clearly aren’t listening to the people.
When they were successful in pushing Boehner out polls were clear that Americans want conservatives to fight for their Constitutional Rights. But they were clearer that they wanted the shutdowns and dysfunction to stop. These Tea Party backers are not listening.
Now they are backing a House Speaker that experts fear won’t be able to control this group from taking action that citizens don’t want. If this radical group succeeds, it will probably hurt Republicans in the 2016 elections.
PPFA Creates a False Image that Helps Create a Gender Gap Issue Looming in Elections
The very term, “Planned Parenthood” is meant to conjure up a false image of what these folks do. It creates an image of responsible couples trying to chart out if and how they will have children at the right time.
But PPFA’s major function is to serve as an abortion clinic. Often siphoning in victimized women who are making one of the most important decisions of their life. A choice that may haunt them the rest of their life. And let’s face it, they make flushing out an unwanted living person look easy. They make it appear like it’s a trip to a health spa to purge your fat. It’s only later when the truth sets in that the depression starts along with other recoiling thoughts of reality – but there’s no way to go back to start.
So, it’s no surprise that PPFA support is a gender issue. A recent Quinnipiac poll shows that funding of Planned Parenthood runs across gender lines. A majority of men do not support it. While a majority of women do.
This could be a problem for the GOP in the upcoming election. If they push too hard to defund it, a backlash of government shutdown threats could backfire. If they openly support closing it down, they could lose the women vote.
While the GOP has to be very careful, there are solutions. But they have to be smart about it. And there are those who are trying to make it work. And you can help make it happen.
Take Action to Help Stop PPFA Unsavory Activities
- Strategic House Conservatives have decided to create a new committee. This is a smart move because they’re structuring it like the Benghazi Committee – it creates the dynamics of putting together truth over a long period of time – it will get us pass the election [Contact your Representatives in the House and tell them you want them to support this new Committee]
- Help create awareness of the true face of Planned Parenthood – Watch this video of the chief doctor callously talking about how they conduct procedures. Also, watch this 20/20 video from 2000, as they expose doctors making tons of money from these procedures. SHARE THESE LINKS WITH EVERYBODY YOU KNOW. TALK TO YOUR GOVERNMENT LEADERS ABOUT THIS! CREATE AWARENESS OF WHAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS REALLY ABOUT.
- Hold community meetings; talk to PTA, schools, town meetings – make group efforts to help create awareness for young people and those who take care of them. Help them not fall prey to Planned Parenthood and their affiliates.
