Cruz Hits Trump On Planned Parenthood Funding

Dan Spencer, RedState

During Saturday’s CBS Republican Presidential debate in South Carolina Sen. Ted Cruz was able to get Donald Trump to admit that he supports taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. It wasn’t easy. Cruz had to do it the face one of Trump’s many whiney and un-presidential tirades during which Trump falls back on his name calling.

This Election Is Now About Abortion And Life

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

What cannot happen is a fractured evangelical base stands around two or three candidates and throws stones at itself. If that happens, we will see another 20 years of liberal Supreme Court justices, and another 20 or 30 million unborn babies killed. This election is now about ending abortion and preserving life, just like 1860 was about ending slavery. The sooner Christians understand that, the better.

Is There Any Part Of The Reagan Coalition Capitol Hill GOP Leaders Haven't Betrayed?

More spending, but not on the core constitutional responsibility of the federal government to provide for the common defense. A deteriorating national security posture and a rapid degradation of America’s military capabilities, intrusive and extra-constitutional federal interference in education and other powers reserved by the Constitution to the states, and the complete abandonment of any pretense of governing according to cultural conservative principles are the legacy of the past decade of Republican “leadership” on Capitol Hill.

Grand Jury’s Indictment of Planned Parenthood Foe Isn’t the End of the Story

Pro-life advocate Shari Rendall writes while the indictment of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt seem to portend a bad omen for pro-lifers, Planned Parenthood is far from off-the-hook.  Following the indictment announcement, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton both issued statements that the state’s investigation into Planned Parenthood remains ongoing and the grand jury’s action will have no impact on the probe.

White House Inadvertently Admits That a Child Is a Child 'Even Before Birth'

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

The paper says women are "mothers" while still only pregnant. And one of the paper's key points -- printed in bold in the executive summary -- is: The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program's "positive impact on children begins even before birth and lasts well beyond their childhood years."

New Poll: Conservatives Want Ryan Removed Following Budget Betrayal

Conservatives see the “compromise” spending bill crafted by Speaker Paul Ryan as a surrender to President Obama, according to a new poll conducted by FedUp PAC.  A huge majority wants the House to “remove Ryan and install a speaker who will fight Obama down the line.” Please watch our free "message from the grassroots" video and then forward it to your friends to let the Republican establishment know what you think about their complete surrender to Obama.

5 Days to Save America: Will Your Representative and Senators Have Jim Bridenstine’s Integrity?

Republican leaders claim defeating Obama's agenda is too complicated for them to handle, but Rep. Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma has a simple solution: “It is sad that both parties in Congress are complicit in continuing to fund Planned Parenthood through last minute, massive spending bills like CRs (continuing resolutions) or omnibus bills.  I have not and will not vote for any spending bill that sends one cent to Planned Parenthood.”

Media Races To Make San Bernardino Shooting About Planned Parenthood

Blake Neff, Daily Caller

Just minutes after reports emerged of a shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., members of the media quickly began to draw a dubious connection between the shooting and Planned Parenthood, even though the nearest clinic is about a mile away and there is no evidence it is involved.

The Disgrace of Planned Parenthood

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

We believe in the First Amendment here. The Planned Parenthood apparatchiks have the constitutional right to say anything they want. Just like all those long ago liberals who, defying the fact of Lee Harvey Oswald’s pro-Communist beliefs, sought to blame the Right for the death of a president. But the rest of us have the right to realize just how ridiculous what they are saying really is. And dangerous, too.

10 Days To Save America: Defund Planned Parenthood NOW!

As big as abortion is as a policy debate, the internal Republican debate over cutting funds for Planned Parenthood is even more consequential from a constitutional perspective. It goes to the very heart of our constitutional system of government and what the role of Congress is in it. Why is it so hard for the sophisticated insiders of the Republican establishment to understand this? Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders

11 Days to Save America: Defund Obama’s Disastrous Policies or be Complicit in the Destruction of Our Country

We have 11 days to stop the funding of Obama’s priorities; it is time to tell Republicans in Congress that we demand an end to the “show votes” and that instead of giving Obama a blank check for the final year of his administration they must exercise the power the Constitution gave them to stand as a check against Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.

Conservative Challenger Becky Gerritson Calls Out GOP Establishment On Islamic Importation

Conservative congressional challenger Becky Gerritson has just issued a stinging challenge on the issue of Muslim immigration to her incumbent establishment Republican opponent Rep. Martha Roby (AL-2). Gerritson is right on target with her pledge to oppose Obama's "open arms" agenda and with her indictment of Martha Roby’s record of supporting Obama’s Islamic Importation Plan.

Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood Will Help Even If It Fails

Marjorie Dannelfelser, National Review

That’s because it sets a precedent for using the reconciliation process to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal major portions of Obamacare, thereby breaking the stranglehold on legislation subject to the filibuster. It demonstrates the importance of electing a pro-life president next November, and keeps the issue before the voters and the candidates.

Obamacare bill pits conservatives against each other

Paige Winfield Cunningham, Washington Examiner

The dissension among groups that are usually aligned is putting Republicans between a rock and a hard place, and they now must choose which ones to please and which to anger when it comes to a budget reconciliation bill the Senate will soon consider.

House Leaders Devise Plan to Fund Planned Parenthood and Retreat from Obamacare Repeal

Erick Erickson, RedState

At best, reconciliation offers to "get a bill to the President's desk" but no leverage to actually accomplish the objective of getting it signed into law. It’s an exercise in high-end failure theatre that also insulates congressmen who just voted to fund Planned Parenthood and Obamacare from any retribution from their voters.

Planned Parenthood: Why Fund These Killers of the Unborn?

Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison, American Thinker

If we truly seek an end to fatherless young men shooting each other, and too much conflict between police and the communities they serve, we need to address the violence of abortion and the breakdown of family.

Planned Parenthood's Cecile the Lyin'

Tony Perkins, Family Research Council

Relying on tired talking points, Cecile Richards insisted the footage of her employees hawking human body parts were "doctored" -- a claim that will be tough to make now that forensics have validated them. The tapes' authenticity was confirmed and released to the press early this morning, as part of an Alliance Defending Freedom effort.

Mitch McConnell Calls for the Destruction of the Republican Party

A two year deal that effectively takes spending off the table as an issue in the 2016 presidential campaign would be a disaster for Republicans because they would once again be complicit in the Obama-led tsunami of spending, deficits and debt that are wrecking the American economy.
