Rep. Franks: Capitol Steps ‘Stained With the Blood of Our Own Children’

We have murdered millions of babies since Roe V Wade.

How many future doctors,scientists and leaders were in

the numbers of the murdered?

We can not keep up murdering our future.

 

 

  

(CNSNews.com) –  At a press conference Friday announcing the introduction of Rep. Steve Stockman’s (R-Tex.) “Sanctity of Life Act,” Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) criticized the lack of action that has led to “the steps of that capitol stained with the blood of our own children.”

 

Stockman’s bill would define human life from conception and take away Supreme Court jurisdiction over abortion-related cases, which “would be a landmark achievement for civil and human rights in the United States,” he said in a press release.

Speaking in support of the bill, Franks highlighted lessons from history and cited the role of the U.S. as a leader in the abolition of slavery.

“The thing that brought the birth of this [Republican] party was this idea in the minds and hearts of a few people that the African American was a child of God, a human being – even though the Supreme Court said they weren’t. They were wrong then, and they’re wrong now,” he said.

Steve Antosh of the National Pro-Life Alliance said that under Stockman’s bill, ‘not only do we define when life begins, but using Congress’ power to define the jurisdiction of courts, you [the Supreme Court] have no jurisdiction over this.”

That would be “a good club to hold over the court,” he added.

Stockman introduced the first Sanctity of Life Act in 1995. He is also a cosponsor of the Sanctity of Human Life Act introduced by Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) earlier this year. Other cosponsors of include Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

When asked by CNSNews to comment on the Texas abortion bill signed into law by Governor Rick Perry on Thursday, Stockman expressed excitement over the legislation that “protects women.”

“It’s very much a women’s bill – in terms of what happened in Pennsylvania where women were operated on would end up dying, this is a great women’s bill,” Stockman said, adding that he hopes his own bill “will be a companion to the Texas bill.”

Franks echoed the same urgency for pro-life legislation. Without it, he said, “the nation can’t survive. The republic is based on the rule of law, based upon the importance of everyone being protectable and equal. You can’t do that when you leave someone out.”

Ron Paul: Attacking Tea Party Is Not A Good Plan For GOP

Leave a comment

This is from The Last Resistance.

I guess Ron Paul is smarter than I thought.

We need to toss Boehner and company out on their heads.

We need to put adults back in charge in the Senate.

Boehner has moved to attack at least four “Tea PartyCongressmen and marginalize them by kicking them off committees. An unnamed sourceclaimed that the Congressmen deserved it:

“a GOP leadership aide told NBC News that the four members — Michigan’s Justin Amash, Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, Walter Jones  of North Carolina and Arizona’s David Schweikert — were ‘clearly not team players.’”

Right. Because Team GOP has been such a wonderful gift to loyal Republicans, obviously anyone who won’t “play ball” with them must be given bench time. Unless, of course, the entire starting group are a bunch of losers and we need a replacement team. Perhaps Amash, Huelskamp, Jones, and Schweikert are hoping that voters will select others like them and kick Boehner and his ilk off the team.

Ron Paul has recently stated the obvious. He said,

“They’re going to punish freshmen legislators? If you’re looking for dissension, then you’re going to get it… These congressmen will never cave. They’re going to get the support of the people … They will become heroes.”

How can anyone argue with this?

But I think the most telling remark Paul made was his characterization of why some people get persecuted by their fellow Republican Congressmen: “You get punched for having sincere beliefs.”

What I don’t understand is how Boehner and his fellows cannot understand that they are burning down their own house. Whether candidates are sincere or lying, the voters want to believe they are choosing a candidate who has principles other than simply staying in office for personal gain. To publicly advertise that anyone who believes in a balance budget and an unencumbered economy is simply going to be excluded from “the club” is to invite being kicked out of office. Boehner has got to realize that he can’t just pretend to care about the looming debt crisis and continue to not do anything about it.

As it stands now, Boehner has pretty much publicly demonstrated who in Congress belongs to the future of the Republican Party, assuming the GOP has any future at all.

As far as I can guess, Boehner hopes to see Democrats keep the White House and plans that Republicans will be forced to vote for, and lose with, the kind of candidates we have had to put up with for the last two election cycles. His value to the ruling class will be in diverting Conservative energy into supporting non-Conservative Republican candidates.

But I don’t think Boehner is going to get his way. The more desperate the American economy gets, the more Boehner will have to openly work to put down Conservatives in Congress. And the more Boehner’s evil work becomes visible to all, the more he is going to enrage conservative voters.

My hope and prayer is that 2014 give us a new GOP in Congress.

Huelskamp charges Boehner punished him and others for conservative votes

This is from Fox News Politics.

It is time for a Conservative Revolution.

We need to bounce Boehner and his fellow RINO out of power.

Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp said Tuesday that House Speaker John Boehner removed him and other conservative Republicans from key committee posts for conservative votes against House leadership this term.

The allegations mark the second straight day the Tea Party-back Huelskamp has lashed out at Boehner and other House leaders for perceived punishment when they return next year for another term.

“The GOP leadership might think they have silenced conservatives, but removing me and others from key committees only confirms our conservative convictions,” said Huelskamp, who was elected to a second term in November. “This is clearly a vindictive move.”

Huelskamp says he has been ousted from the chamber’s Budget and Agriculture committees but has yet to be told directly.

In addition, Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina was taken off the chamber’s Financial Services Committee. Freshman Rep. Dave Schweikert of Arizona also was removed from the Financial Services Committee, while fellow freshman Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan was taken off the Budget Committee.

Boehner’s office did not return a call seeking verification or an explanation of for the changes.

Earlier this week, Huelskamp alleged House leaders made their decision based on “secret” criteria and suggested Boehner’s moves were similar to the those Newt Gingrich exerted on committee assignments when he was House speaker from 1995 to 1999.

Huelskamp cited in particular his commitment to the Republicans’ “Pledge to America,” which he said Republican leadership made before he was elected.

Signers agreed to cut $100 billion in 2011 and to restore transparency and openness in the legislative process.

Huelskamp also said Boehner’s decision went beyond punishing him to hurting his voters.

“It punishes my 700,000 constituents,” he said.  “Someone from my district has been on the Agriculture Committee for 151 years.”
