You remember John Boehner, don’t you? You know. That fake (R)epublican who as Speaker of the House oversaw an increase in the debt of more than $4 trillion. That RINO who surrendered to Barack Obama at EVERY turn. That gutless wonder who when given the leadership of the House said “What do you expect me to do? We only control one half of one branch of government?” Then, when actual conservatives gave the GOP control of both houses, surrender-monkey Boehner said “What do you expect me to do? Obama will just veto what we send him if we don’t give him what he wants.” Yeah, that guy. The one that everyone except democrats hated, and were ready to take up pitchforks and torches to run out of town. The good news? He’s now GONE. Thank the Lord for that. The bad news? Boehner’s mini-me has been crowned as Speaker.
First of all, when Nancy Pelosi and many other democrats are praising Paul Ryan, you KNOW you’ve picked the wrong guy. We didn’t have to wait long for confirmation. Case in point, Ryan’s pre-battle surrender over defunding Planned Parenthood.
When you have an organization that has been PROVEN to be breaking the law, that is murdering millions of babies and selling their body parts for profit in violation of the law, that provides little in the way of actual healthcare services contrary to the claims of supporters, AND taxpayers are being forced to pay for it despite moral and religious objections, it should be a NO-BRAINER to end taxpayer funding for such an organization.
So, what does the new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan say about the fight to end taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood?
“I think we need to be very clear about what we can and cannot achieve and not set expectations that we know we can’t reach given the constraints of the Constitution,”
The only reason Ryan and the GOP CAN’T achieve what conservatives want is because the establishment, spineless, surrender-monkeys refuse to even engage in battle for what is RIGHT. They are only interested in keeping their seat at the table, no matter who they have to lie to so they can. They are “conservatives” when they want to be reelected, but immediately betray those who put them in power as soon as the polls close.
What does this mean? It means that the GOP led by establishment RINOs is merely the democrat wing of the Republican party. We effectively have one party socialist rule now, with a small handful of conservatives leading the insurgency to restore constitutional sanity.
What it also means is that the same fervor that unseated Eric Cantor, forced Boehner to resign and retire, and prevented Kevin McCarthy from running for Speaker must be rekindled and fanned into an inferno to get rid of more RINOs. I hate to say this, but we must FIGHT LIKE DEMOCRATS. They are relentless in pursuit of their agenda. I hope it’s not already too late to save this nation, but I fear it is. We must keep fighting and save what we can.
Paul Ryan Doubtful About Defunding Planned Parenthood
(CNN) – Paul Ryan doesn’t believe Planned Parenthood should get one “red cent” from taxpayers — but he cautioned Sunday against expectations that he’ll be able to pull federal funding for the organization now that he’s House speaker.
“I think we need to be very clear about what we can and cannot achieve and not set expectations that we know we can’t reach given the constraints of the Constitution,” Ryan told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.”
The women’s health organization has long drawn the ire of anti-abortion lawmakers, but efforts to pull federal funding for it increased after activists released undercover videos accusing Planned Parenthood of breaking federal laws by selling tissue and organs from aborted fetuses.
“I don’t think Planned Parenthood should get a red cent from the taxpayer. I’ve always believed that, even before these disgusting videos came out,” Ryan said. “But I believe we need to do our oversight. We’re just beginning to start a committee to investigate Planned Parenthood. That’s important. So the special committee on Planned Parenthood, I think, should be in the driver’s seat overseeing this process.”
Bash asked, “Will you defund Planned Parenthood?”
“This is what I mean when I say being an effective opposition party. I think being an effective opposition party means being honest with people upfront about what it is we can and cannot achieve,” he said.
“But we also have to push issues where we can push issues, we have to speak truth to power,” he added. “We have a president that isn’t willing to listen, that isn’t going to sign lots of our bills into law, we have a Senate that has a very difficult process when it comes to actually getting bills voted on, so knowing that we have those constraints, we have to operate within those constraints.”
