Yahoo News – Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a potential 2012 presidential candidate, accused the Obama administration on Sunday of transforming abortion into a U.S. export and breaking faith with the nation’s founding principles by supporting taxpayer-funded embryonic stem cell research.
The conservative Republican has long been at odds with President Barack Obama’s stand on reproductive rights and stem cell research, but his remarks at an anti-abortion rally amounted to a political introduction to a mostly Hispanic crowd of about 5,000 at a downtown arena.
While speaking at a pro-abortion rally Wednesday, Democrat Congresswoman Louise Slaughter said the GOP wants to “kill women” and also compared them to Nazis.
NewsBusters points out that Rep. Slaughter is one who tried to blame the Tucson shooting on “vitriolic rhetoric” coming from the Right. She even called for more policing of “language on the airwaves” after the shooting, and here she is comparing her political opponents to Nazis.
Here is audio of Donald Trump on the Sean Hannity Radio Show today, where they talked about a whole range of issues. Trump displayed that Obama’s Birth Certificate is not the only issue he is willing to go after Obama on.
Trump said he is encouraged by the NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll showing him now within four-points of Mitt Romney for the 2012 GOP Nomination. He mentioned that the same poll shows him the top choice among Tea Party Voters – whom Trump praised for having done a great service for the nation.
Trump told Hannity he would deal with the massive trade imbalance with China by making “great deals” with China.
Trump said Obama has not proven he can make great deals for America. In fact, Trump played hardball by saying that with Obama, “his only deal was Tony Rezko – it was the only deal he did. And if you did that deal, you’d be in really big trouble. . . . . But the press just wiped it over like it was nothing.” Trump said he is “an honest person,” and he is not afraid for people to look into his background if he decides to run and to file his financial disclosures.
On the Obama Birth Certificate, he continued to press the issue, hitting all the questions he has raised in virtually every interview – when he is asked about the matter. He said most Republicans are afraid to even talk about the issue because the liberal media has done such an incredible job of intimidating people with the use of the term “birther” to denigrate and dismiss anyone who even dares to bring up the subject.
On the possible Government Shutdown, Trump said Republicans should hold firm because he believes Obama and the Democrats will take the big hit in public opinion. He also indicated he is concerned about GOP Rep. Paul Ryan getting too far out front on the 2012 Budget with the huge spending reductions he is recommending. Trump said he really loves Ryan, but that it is dangerous for him to be out there so early with the huge proposals without any bi-partisan support for the plan. Trump seemed to be saying it would be better to wait for the debate over the bill to get too specific about what cuts are being proposed.
When Hannity mentioned Obama’s association with radical William Ayers, Trump chimed in that he thinks Ayers wrote Obama’s first book, because Ayers has said as much and because the writing style is so dramatically better than Obama’s second book.
Toward the end of the interview, Hannity asked Trump if he was pro-Life, which Trump reaffirmed once again. He said he is pro-Life, against gay marriage, and is “conservative on all the social issues.” But Trump warned that Republicans must not let social issues keep them from choosing a candidate who can beat Obama. Beating Obama is the number one priority, he emphasized. But he quickly followed that up with another statement that he is conservative on all the social issues.
Here is audio of Donald Trump being interviewed by Laura Ingraham on her radio show yesterday, where he confirmed that he is Pro-Life, and he called for a 25% tax on imported Chinese goods to level the competitive playing field.
Trump called himself a “very conservative guy.” He called for a nation with real borders:
“You’re either a person that is a citizen of the United States or you’re not. And you either have borders or you don’t have borders. . . . You either have a country with law and order and borders or you don’t.”
Donald Trump said one of the first things he would do is to announce a 25% tariff on any product purchased from China. This would force the Chinese to come to the table and level the playing field with American Companies.
Trump said our leaders are “stupid” for allowing China to come here and operate with impunity while U.S. Companies cannot hope to really do business in China.
Trump said Education should be a “local thing,” and seemed to called for cuts in the U.S. Department of Education.
NOTE: Donald Trump is sounding very much like someone who is going to run for President. I have to say, what he is saying makes a great deal of sense. I was very glad to hear him confirm that he is Pro-Life. It would be nice to hear him expand on that in the near future.
Rep. Mike Pence calls for the defunding of Planned Parenthood in light of recent undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood giving advice to a fake pimp on how to bypass abortion laws for his underage prostitutes.
The time has come to deny all federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America. I’ve authored the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which would deny Title X funds to Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider and Congress must act and act now to move this important legislation. Pro-life Americans and all Americans should not be forced to subsidize America’s largest abortion provider or continue to provide federal taxpayer dollars to Title X clinics that engage in this abhorrent behavior.H/T: The Blaze
Here is video of GOP Rep. Mike Pence delivering powerful remarks at the March for Life, January 23, speaking out against the abhorrent Roe vs. Wade decision which legalized the taking of innocent human life through abortion.
“And we know this: We will win this fight. Because the deepest desire of every mother and father is to protect their child at any cost – even the cost of their lives. And the American People will make this right. We will restore the sanctity of life to the center of American Law, because every American knows in their heart this is the greatest nation on earth because we acknowledge the God-given rights to liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the unalienable right to life.”
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A doctor whose abortion clinic was a filthy, foul-smelling “house of horrors” that was overlooked by regulators for years was charged Wednesday with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them.
In a nearly 300-page grand jury report filled with ghastly, stomach-turning detail, prosecutors said Pennsylvania regulators ignored complaints of barbaric conditions at Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s clinic, which catered to poor, immigrant and minority women in the city’s impoverished West Philadelphia section.
Prosecutors called the gruesome case a “complete regulatory collapse.”
“Pennsylvania is not a third-world country,” the district attorney’s office declared in the report. “There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago.”
Gosnell, 69, was arrested and charged with eight counts of murder altogether in the alleged killings of seven babies and the death of a woman from an overdose of painkillers. Nine of Gosnell’s employees – including his wife, a cosmetologist – also were charged…(Read More)
Here is audio of Rush Limbaugh yesterday dropping truly shocking abortion statistics being reported by ABC New York (their article actually says 39%). In New York City, 41% of all pregnancies end in abortion – and the rate among minorities is even higher (60% among Blacks, 41% among Hispanics, 23% among Asians). The rate among “Non-Hispanic Whites” in 2009 was 20%.
Rush takes issue with the leftist takeaway from those numbers – That there is something wrong with “birth control education” in New York! Rush makes the case that there is actually something wrong with the behavior of people – that “abstinence” works “every time it’s tried.” He also points out that the real question is, “Who’s making all the money from the abortions?”
Limbaugh also quoted from a report that says “abortion kills more Black Americans than the seven leading causes of death – combined.”
More Huckabee at the Values Voter Summit this morning. Here he urges those attending to join him in not supporting any candidate who does not value “every human life” – including the unborn.
Princeton professor Melissa Harris-Lacewell calls abortion providers “termination services” on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show.
“I think clearly every time we move more aggressively against women’s reproductive rights, the more that we will see the consequences show up in everything from health care policy, to potentially actually moving towards reducing the opportunities for women to find healthy, safe, termination services.”Read more: Newsbusters
Here is a video report on former pro-life Republican Charlie Crist’s decision to veto an abortion bill that would have required women who are seeking abortions to undergo an ultrasound first. The bill would have also banned the use of taxpayer money obtained from the new health care reform law to fund abortions.
Here is absolutely wonderful video of the great Andrea Bocelli delivering a powerful message about difficult circumstances, and why we should always choose Life
Democrats are seeking to lift the ban on abortions at overseas military hospitals, a move that would be in keeping with their commitment to the radical pro-abortion agenda espoused by President Obama. They are trying to do it by attaching an amendment to that effect to the Defense Authorization Bill.
As an Illinois State Senator, Obama would not even support the “Infants Born Alive Protection Act,” which required that life-sustaining measures be taken for babies that survived botched abortion procedures. Obama essentially supported infanticide – allowing those infants to be set aside to die, even though they were out of the womb and alive.
Now, as President, Obama is trying to make good on his commitment to the pro-abortion forces that helped to put him in the Oval Office. It is unclear whether Democrats will have the votes to end the ban on abortions at Overseas Military Hospitals – a move which will use Federal Funds to pay for abortions, since Military Hospitals are federally funded.
By the way – the law already allows abortion at military hospitals in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is at risk. So, that is NOT what Obama is concerned about.
What else would you expect from a President who said he does not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby” if they make a mistake:
