TED CRUZ: STATES SHOULD ‘STAND UP AND LEAD’ ON DEFUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD

by Dr. Susan Berry | Breitbart  |  published on October 5, 2015

2015-10-04_22-05-02In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says that state legislatures and governors now need to “stand up and lead” on defunding Planned Parenthood.

“I encourage every state legislature and every governor to stand up and lead on Planned Parenthood,” the GOP presidential contender said. “Unfortunately, Republican leadership in Washington is unwilling to lead and, indeed, it’s Republican leadership who’s joined with Barack Obama in leading the fight to preserve taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.”

Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Utah, and New Hampshire have moved to eliminate Medicaid funding from Planned Parenthood after investigative videos have exposed the organization’s practice of selling the body parts of aborted babies. The Obama administration, however, has threatened action against states that attempt to defund the abortion business.

    And Obama “claims” to be a Chtistian??? NOT!

    • Jean Witte

      He also claims to be a Muslim and has stated his loyalty to the group!

  • I Seigel

    I heard that Sen Cruz also said that state legislatures and governors should “stand up and lead” in passing stricter gun control laws in their areas.

  • Patriot47

    Defund the federal gubmint. Reel them in to the Constitution.

  • eassa

    The choice between right and wrong, light and darkness, life and death is so clear.

  • rowleya

    Cruz agrees with me. Cruz is only Candidate I’ll vote for.
    CRUZ for Prez

  • Jo

    I like this idea. If our Federally elected officials refuse to vote as the people’s government, let’s take back our country through our States. Get rid of Obamacare, get out of the U.N.(before they are here turning us into a ‘One World Government’), cut off funds to Planned Parenthood (Abortion Mill that has NO redeeming quality. They lie and say they are there for Well Women visits, which is a lie. They aren’t equipped for Mammograms; according to Whistle-blowers, who managed a few of these Mills, they are expected to give an abortion to every single call, or ‘walk-in’. Also, shut down the corrupt I.R.S. and have a flat tax, clean house at Veterans headquarters and hire all new people. Unfortunately, this entire administration is corrupt.

    • Carol Burkhardt

      Jo, the “Flat Tax” does NOT eliminate the IRS. ONLY the “FAIR Tax” eliminates the IRS. Please understand that difference between the two different plans.

    • homegirl

      Jo, just to let you know “Karma is a bitch!” Those who wish to get rid of the ACA will be struck with incurable/expensive illnesses as soon as the insurance companies can once again deny coverage for pre existing conditions and set coverage limits. I suspect you will be among the first to be stricken.

    • Jean Witte

      I hope you have better luck than I have been having in dealing with and understanding the convoluted ideas that homegirl has been spewing!

  • Sharon Aldrich

    Defund Planned Parenthood!! It is a menace to American society. What happen to the morals of this country????

  • marlene.langert

    I fully agree with Mr. Cruz, a brilliant man. Now, Ms. Richards has admitted PP has zero mamogram machines. Mostly all they do is kill babies and then sell them.

    • homegirl

      Your post is complete BS.

    • Jean Witte

      You are right on, but you will NEVER get homegirl to understand.

  • I Seigel

    Why does this jerk keep wasting his time with this bulls**t?! We’ve got a budget that needs passing, a debt limit about to be reached, the closure of the Export-Import Bank has already cost millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs, the Highway Fund needs reauthorization and there is an undeclared war happening in the Mideast. Surely, Cruz needs to get his head out of his ass and be a part of solving these problems.

    • Carol Burkhardt

      I Seigel, you ask WHY Cruz keeps “wasting his time” with the abortion issue. Two reasons:
      1. He grew up with a father who was a Southern Baptist pastor and that Christian denomination is obsessed with outlawing abortion. So he is also.
      2. Over half of Iowa primary voters identify as “evangelicals” and most evangelicals also want to outlaw abortion.
      HOWEVER most WOMEN believe their Right to Choose is a non-negotiable right and they will vote to protect that right. Consequently, Cruz can’t possibly win the general election.

  • jerome naccari

    You don’t govern by threats! This P.O. SH**T has gone to far already! Let the states start to threaten him NOW! Tell him to shove it!

  • Carol Burkhardt

    If defunding PP is the TRUE goal, Cruz is going about it the wrong way. First of all, you pro-lifers have got to recognize that the American public (esp women) will NEVER allow abortion to be outlawed. Fighting to end all abortions simply turns the public against highly religious people. And the American public supports embryonic tissue research. Fighting those 2 truisms is totally self-defeating.
    But there IS a way to defund PP. Two situations would win support from the public:
    1. Expose the outrageous SPENDING by PP for PP employees. Hence, WHY should PP receive taxpayer monies?
    2. Examine ObamaCare’s $ for women’s health, including abortion.

    Continuing to proclaim that abortion is EV-IL is NOT going to allow you to reach your goal of defunding PP. The “Evil” argument simply turns the public against you…causing them to hear NOTHING you’re saying.

  • Larry

    Obviously one idiot can’t get his head out of his ***. Ted Cruz is a true American and that’s more then we can say for you.

  • 7papa7

    Once again Senator Cruz is on the RIGHT side of the issues.

    • podunk1

      Absolutely right!

  • USMCret

    As I live in Kalifornica I know that the elected officers are so liberal that that they drool over the aspect of ritual baby killing in the womb to harvest body parts . The moral degridation of the ones who promote this hideous obamanation are in league with the Devil and brain dead politicians.

    • homegirl

      Your post is complete BS.

  • Jean Witte

    The states must stand up..Ted Cruz is right!!!

  • RAYMOND KENNEDY

    Funding Planned Parenthood is horrific. I’d love a list of all of those ass-kissingRepublicans who joined Obama.

  • bobnstuff

    Ted 6 states have already investigated PP and found no wrong doing. Maybe you should check out the facts before you speak. I have heard a number of things about you, like you were born in Canada and that your fathers is from Cuba so you can’t run for President. I will check those statements before making a big deal about them.

    • Clifford Hendricks

      Just becuse these ass kissers don’t want to close PP down doesn’t mean MURDER is not wrong doing.

      • bobnstuff

        Since less then a third of the clinics do abortions and it’s less then 3% of what they do maybe closing them isn’t the thing to do. I guess you are for gun control and anti capital punishment if you think murder is wrong. Do you support family services like food stamps and free day care? Once the baby is out do you plan on punishing it for being born to a poor family. Are you willing to make sure it has a chance in this world or are you just pro birth and who cares about the child. Planned Parenthood has broken no laws and has given great service in places where there is no other. If you truly are anti abortion then you need to make it unneeded. Prevent unwanted pregnancy though real education and support those in need.

        • Jean Witte

          Every child is a creation of God, Who has a plan and purpose for each one of us, and it is not up to us to decide who lives and who dies…that is a decision left only for God Almighty. These unborn babies were known by God BEFORE they even happened…Psalm 139 says it all!

          • bobnstuff

            Yes but what did Christ say about treating our fellow man. If you are in for an inch you are in for a mile. You can’t pick and choose. I ask again are you pro life, all life or just pro birth?

          • Jean Witte

            I am pro-life, because, as i said before, we are ALL God’s creation, created for His purpose, not for our purpose. If you believe the Holy Bible, you will see that each one of us was planned from the beginning of time. It is not really complicated! We are all precious and worth saving, but there are many who choose to not do God’s will, and for that we should be thankful, because He gave us a CHOICE. We can either chose to follow His teachings or follow our own paths. His way leads to eternal salvation and and eternity (that’s a loooong time) with Him, but in giving us the right to choose, there will be MANY who ignore Christ, and will spend eternity…(that’s also a loooong time) in unthinkable misery in Hell. It is just nor our place to take the life of an unborn child for the sake of convenience or whatever…that child was His and we should not interfere. If you are concerned about the child’s welfare after it is born, then, if it is in need, it is our duty as Christians to help in whatever way we can…that’s what Christian’s do!

          • bobnstuff

            I agree with you, We are given free will. We choose. I have spent my life trying to do Gods will and serving mankind. I have given support to women that choose to give birth in both money and time, I also know that without groups like Planned Parenthood there would be more abortions not less and more people would die. The abortion rate drops in places that have good women’s health services. I pray for a day when there will be no need for anyone to think about abortion but unless we start supporting the right choice completely it will never happen.

          • Jean Witte

            Perhaps we need to trust God more and let Him do the worrying. I fell sure He will protect those precious children that He has ordained. We also need to not be so concerned about how hard we are working to do God’s will…it is a close personal relationship with Him that He wants…He will do ALL the rest…’Take my yoke upon you, for my Yoke is easy and my Burden is light”…Matthew 11:29

          • bobnstuff

            God has sent us to protect them. It’s our job to do his work, it’s a joy to serve the living Lord.

          • Jean Witte

            You are absolutely right, we, with the help of God should do whatever is humanly possible to help people, and it is a joy to do so, but we must remember that it is NOT our works that God is really looking for as much as a personal relationship with Him, and He will guide us in the direction He needs us to go to help others. We simply cannot nor should not assume that we can help everybody. But under direction of the Holy Spirit Who dwells in every believing Christian, we will be told what to do and when to do it. We just have to leave ourselves open to the bidding of the Holy Spirit every morning as we start each new day. If we jump in and decide to do a lot of things on our own, where God does not want us to go, we are going contrary to His will, and make it difficult for all involved. Remember Ephesians 2: 8-10…”For by GRACE you have been saved through FAITH; and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of WORKS, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for GOOD WORKS, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” But always lead by the Holy Spirit. I feel as you do, I’m sure…I wish we could save the world, but that is just not our job!

          • I Seigel

            Christians would also make sure all these babies are fed, protected and educated. So I’m sure you support programs for poor families and single mothers, and drug rehab programs and Affirmative Action. Am I right in that assumption?

          • Jean Witte

            Affirmative Action??? NO!!! I don’t think one has to believe in Affirmative Action to act like a Christian.

          • I Seigel

            So I’d delete those 2 words. And then what would your response be? You and John Last only focused on the “Affirmative Action” phrase of my post.

          • John Last

            screw affirmative action !!
            40 years ago, I believed it was a needfull thing.
            Now, 2 generations of Black Americans believe they’re owed EVERYTHING !
            What REALLY p’s me off, is that now my son has to deal with it.

          • I Seigel

            So I’d delete those 2 words. And then what would your response be? You and Jean Witte only focused on the “Affirmative Action” phrase of my post.

          • Jean Witte

            You are right to a point…I’m not so sure I can support Affirmative Action. As I explained to homegirl…God has provided people and societies to care for those babies that would otherwise be tossed away as trash! Yes, that is the Christian way. I would also challenge any one to look into the face of a Downs Syndrome child and call that person a piece of trash who is not worthy of the air they breathe. Please don’t tell me that there are those who could possibly do that!!

          • I Seigel

            Jean, the others that have responded to my post here and in another thread also fixed on the “Affirmative Action” comment and ignored the rest of my ideas. So in retrospect, I regret mentioning Affirmative Action. But it also seems to show that Christians – and Conservatives – should also support all the other things I mentioned, supporting babies after they’re born, from infanthood to adulthood. And not just white babies, but black, Latino and American-born babies of immigrants, legal or illegal. Just not AA. But I don’t see any indication that that’s true. Do you? So you tell me if the vast majority of “Christian Conservatives” are Christian in name only, and if they wrap themselves up in the Bible and toss Scripture around so they can pass judgement on their fellow man and woman – which I thought was a privilege reserved for God.

          • Jean Witte

            Thanks for your remarks. I agree and sorry that I failed to mention groups other than Christian who offer comfort to the needy, and the Jewish people are tops on my list of allies and friends…after all my Christ was a Jew! I also support a couple of Jewish organizations and Messianic Jewish organizations as well. In remarking about the color of the skin of the babies…I recall a song I used to sing in Sunday School which said: “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red or Yellow, Black or White, they are precious in His sight, yes Jesus loves the little children of the world”.
            Which brings me to another aspect…when God creates a child in the womb, He knows what that child is going to be like, after all He designed it, and for His purpose. It matters not one bit the color of their skin or the condition of their bodies. These are temporary. What really matters to God is the SOUL He placed in that child. That is what is really His. I tend to believe that He gives these to us just to see what we choose to do. And the answer is often very sad!

          • Jean Witte

            OOPS! I forgot to respond to your remark about Christians just being Christian in name only…you are sadly correct. There are all to many Christians and Christian leaders who are afraid to take a stand for fear of offending someone. I beg to differ with them…we are here to offend, if that is what it takes, and I am sad to see so many churches afraid to stand up for what is right! I guess they fear losing their tax-free status…that should not be when losing souls should be the priority!

          • homegirl

            Ms. Witte, you still haven’t answered the question “I ask again are you pro life, all life or just pro birth?”

            I will add my question: Do you tithe 10% of your income, above that do you contribute to providing sustenance, shelter, medical care and education for the poor without regard for their religious beliefs, or lack thereof?

            PS: When I thank you for granting me permission to choose my spiritual path, do not for a millisecond believe I mean it. You really should find a site where you can post your proselytizing screed without challenge, you will be happier.

          • Jean Witte

            I am definitely PRO-LIFE, as God has ordained it from the beginning. I’m sure you do not believe anything from the Bible, but I have made the choice to use this book as my guideline to life, just as, believe it or not, the Founding Fathers did at the beginning of this great nation, and also used the Bible as a guideline to write our Constitution. So if you do not believe the Bible, do you trust or believe in the tenets of the United States Constitution? If you can find a Bible…check out Psalm 139. I tell you this again, not because I am trying to convince you to become anything you chose not to become, but to try to open the eyes of people like you who don’t believe the Bible, but seem to believe the Constitution. If you take the time to read either or both, it would take someone totally confused in what they think is right, as you seem to be by the pure ambiguity of the statements you have already made. It is a simple thing…either you believe it or you don’t, but again the dichotomy of your remarks to me bear the trade mark of someone who doesn’t know exactly what you believe. And again, I am NOT proselytIzing, simply stating facts. If you do not have a copy of the Constitution, contact Hillsdale College, they will send you one FREE!! If you do not have a Bible and don’t wish to purchase one, most any household has at least one copy, and I am sure they would gladly loan it to you or even give it to you…oops, I guess you do have access to one since you suggested Isaiah 2:2, which affirms to the people of Israel that Israel is God’s chosen place and He will, in the end times replace the physical temple in Jerusalem that was destroyed and Jesus Christ will come and rebuild an everlasting temple here on this earth in Jerusalem. That is the reference I believe you were trying to make as to the 7 mountains.
            Hopefully this has clarified for you what I believe and why I believe what I believe and also acknowledge your right to defend your constitutional rights that just happen to be based on the Bible.

          • homegirl

            Ms. Witte, you still haven’t answered the question “I ask again are you pro life, all life or just pro birth?”

            Just to clarify the Seven Mountains reference. And you might be further enlightened by Googling Dominioism, Wikipedia has very concise information.

            Cruz is touted by his “Seven Mountains Dominonist” preacher father as the “Chosen One” who will bring this to pass.

            Cruz’s seven mountains have to do with reclaiming, rebuilding, and
            reestablishing America as a Christian country, which means Christians taking dominion over seven aspects of culture: family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business and government.

            The movement is called Seven Mountains Dominionism and its origin
            comes from Isaiah 2:2: “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
            that the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains.” This is interpreted by Seven Mountain Dominionists as their direction from God to rule as Lords and Masters over all others. Read the previous paragraph carefully and think about living in a country not unlike a Muslim nation ruled by Sharia law. Or do you disclaim separation of church and state.

            Thank you for you facetious advice as to the availability of the Constitution and the Bible, I do have copies of both in my home.

            For someone who claims not to be proselytizing you sure spend a lot of energy doing just that.

          • Jean Witte

            I’m beginning to think I am bantering messages with a brick wall!! I most certainly have answered your question concerning abortion…this time I will print it in caps….I AM PRO-LIFE which means that I respect the human being inside the womb of a woman that was created by God and for His purpose. Now this is not proselytizing…it is simply stating facts and truth. I have no clue what Sen Cruz is referring to concerning 7 mountains, I have just quoted what Scripture says about it. That is my concern, and again, this is NOT proselytizing. I am just exercising my First Amendment right to free speech. I don’t recall getting a clear answer from you concerning your view of the United States Constitution and how the Framing
            Fathers did it, in order for our country to follow
            Christian principals…and you are by all means able to exercise YOUR First Amendment right and not believe anything I have said. That is yours to deal with as you see fit. As to the abortion issue, not only does God intend for us to protect all of the unborn, He has also created qualified people to love and care for those who might not fit into a family or are rejected by society.

          • homegirl

            Ms. Witte, you have clearly stated your position on abortion. The rest of the question is in reference to:
            1. protecting life after birth by assuring that each child has shelter, food, security, education and equal opportunity.
            2. Do you support the death penalty.

            Can you answer those questions?

            Re: Senator Cruz and his affiliation with the Dominionist Seven Mountain Christian group, maybe you don’t want to know as I provided the concepts and beliefs of that group in my post. The only conclusion is that you would embrace the implementation of those beliefs on every aspect of life. Read it again.

            You think you are “bantering messages with a brick wall!” while you are the person who repeatedly refuses to answer the question: Do you support all life? Pro Life is not as simple as the question of women’s reproductive rights, see above.

          • Jean Witte

            I think I will try one more time to open your thick skull so some common sense can fall in. Yes I am pro life as I explained in DETAIL earlier. Yes I believe in the death penalty. And if you are trying to connect that with taking the life of the unborn or new born, it is a totally different subject.
            Capital punishment is implemented to rid the criminal element from society. These are ones who have broken the laws we live by and they are put to death usually only when found guilty of a heinous crime. This can certainly not be said about the innocent unborn or new born babies.
            And…after having read your list of things this Dominionist Seven Mountain Christian group stands for I totally agree with their beliefs. And I plan to check it out for myself, but if it is as you say…you bet I believe it!!! Now, have I answered your questions?

          • homegirl

            My deepest thanks for your answer to part the death penalty question. You support the death penalty. You fail, again, to answer the question of supporting the children who will be born if legal, safe abortion is made illegal. Why not?

            Your immediate ability to identify with the Seven Mountain Dominion movement is to be expected. But, so quickly, I really thought you would investigate and fully understand the social, cultural, political, legal, law, government, and economic implications. So, it is clear you would support a movement to impose a Christian Sharia law on all residents of the USA.

            My “thick skull” not too Christian of you, if you follow and embrace the teaching of Jesus you will “love your neighbor as yourself.” Guess the internet is too impersonal and you do not see me as a neighbor, or human being.

          • Jean Witte

            It would be a lot easier to answer your convoluted questions if you didn’t keep changing something in them. By the way, do you really believe that having a loving God in control of things would not be better than having some nitwit like we have now tearing our country apart now ? You bet your bottom dollar that things would be a lot better off is we got off our high horse and got on our knees and asked God’s forgiveness for destroying what He has given to us on a silver platter! And could I ask you a question? What church do you belong to, or in what tenets do you place your faith? I think it only fair that I ask of you while you have been asking me. I don’t think your answer should be too difficult, or require as many re-writes as yours have been with me.

          • homegirl

            Ms. Witte from one of your posts, yet you always fail to clarify how YOU do your part to support these underprivileged children. If you talk the talk you are expected to walk the walk!

            “when God creates a child in the womb, He knows what that child is going to be like, after all He designed it, and for His purpose. It matters not one
            bit the color of their skin or the condition of their bodies. These are
            temporary. What really matters to God is the SOUL He placed in that
            child. That is what is really His. I tend to believe that He gives these
            to us just to see what we choose to do. And the answer is often very
            sad!”

            I doubt that his purpose if for that child to suffer deprivation, homelessness and illness.

            PS: I have no doubt as to your religion, which I suspect is CINO Christian In Name Only.

            As for me, none of your business.

          • Jean Witte

            BACKATCHA!
            But I will try to clarify one of your inane comments. I am a Bible believing Christian. FYI I attend Christian Fellowship Church, and I practice what I teach!

          • homegirl

            “FYI I attend Christian Fellowship Church, and I practice what I teach!”

            FYI I attend Christian Fellowship Church, and I practice what I [preach!] Corrected that for you. As I said you sure do a lot of proselytizing.

            So far, I know you are a forced birther and you support the death penalty, as far as supporting poor children, still no answer as to you personal involvement and contribution. What’s the problem? Do you believe if they die of malnutrition, exposure or lack of medical care it is “God’s will?”

          • Jean Witte

            I’m done! I have never tried to communicate with anyone so absolutely knuckleheaded. I do NOT preach and I do Not appreciate your putting words in my message where it does not belong! You seem to be asking me to give you a complete rundown of what I do, how I do it and how much I spend and how much time I spend nurturing the sick and needy (that is when I am not proselytizing)…none of which is any of your business. and frankly I am tired of trying to make sense out of your nonsense! TaTa!! Have a nice life…by the way what do you do for a living?????

          • homegirl

            Way too personal to ask what I do for a living. But here goes. I retired at the age of 54, thanks to my hard work investing in residential real estate, for the record, never received a penny of welfare in my life. Same goes for all my family.

            I am completely uninterested in how you spend your time, thought I do have my suspicions, or how you do it. I just wanted to know if you volunteer at a food bank, collect clothing for needy children, other than for members of your church. Contribute regularly to a charitable organization, again other than a church.

            Peace.

          • Jean Witte

            You were trying to get too personal with me so I thought I’d try my luck dishing it back, but honestly I really don’t care how you spend your money or your time. Likewise I have never received a hand out from government or anyplace else. I am a retired school teacher with a doctors degree in psychology. I am a regular church attender and not just a Christian in name only, I have taught Sunday school and vacation Bible school and I have also volunteered at crisis centers, gathered food for the poor and purchased clothing for multiple families. I am an 83 year old widow and have enjoyed your nonsensical banter…but I think it is time to call a halt to it. I really have more important things to do, like keeping the records straight for the company my husband left me in charge of after he passed away in 2009. Our business has done quite well over the years and my children have all graduated with honors and have successful marriages and families…all of which are of the same mind set as me and my husband have always been…That being true to God and our country and helping our neighbors whenever we can.

          • homegirl

            TMI!

            All you had to do at the beginning of the exchange and when you were first asked was to post “I have also volunteered at crisis centers, gathered food for the poor and purchased clothing for multiple families.”

            Instead you chose to profess your Christianity, repeatedly.

            Over and Out.

            Peace.

          • Jean Witte

            And all you could have done to begin with was to answer the first thing I asked you…that being your love for exercising your first amendment right, but you never acknowledged my question concerning the fact that the Founding Fathers framed our Constitution on Biblical principals…remember those principals you only use when you misquote Scripture. Oh well….
            Contrary to what you chose to think about me…when I say I am a Christian, that encompasses as many of the qualities of a Christian as in humanly possible. But you evidently chose to erroneously decide for me that I am a CINO…NO! NO! NO!

            I thought you were DONE with me.

          • Jean Witte

            I’m trying, but there is still something uniquely weird about you that I just hope to open up…just my crazy warped nature…thought I would say it before you did!

            “I think I will try one more time to open your thick skull so some common sense can fall in.”

            Way too personal and not very Christian, which is why I say you are a CINO.

          • Jean Witte

            Have you thought of hanging out your shingle advertising your inept way to see into what other people are? There is nothing unChristian or even intrusive about asking why you say you believe in your first amendment rights as in our Constitution, when you don’t believe the Bible on which the Constitution was founded! And you think I’m confused???

          • homegirl

            Show me a list of the Founding Fathers who declared that the Constitution is based on the Bible.

            I believe in my and your First Amendment Rights. I also believe in “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibit the free exercise thereof;”

            Jean in that post you sank, as you have done in the past, to calling me names. Knucklehead being one of them. Worst I have called you is CINO based on your refusal to answer a question about your acts of charity.

            I believe the Bible is a record of the history of the Jewish people. Many myths and archaic instructions. The New Testament purports to be the teachings of Jesus, a Jewish Rabbi. Over the centuries the writings included have been censored, altered and distorted to fit the political and power needs of the rulers, both Christian and secular.
            Raised Presbyterian I spent many hours in Sunday School and church services. But, I have a mind of my own and had only to read one textbook on comparative religion to recognize all religions for what they are-a means of controlling the population.

            Defined by Marx as “The opiate of the masses.”

          • homegirl

            Ms. Witte, I am sure you will be surprised to learn that there are many millions of atheists in the USA. The sect of Christianity you embrace is not legally permitted to impose its, and your, beliefs on the rest of the populace. I refer you to the first Amendment to the Constitution.

          • Jean Witte

            I don’t recall asking you to become a Christian. I am only exercising my First Amendment right by expressing my honest opinion, which happens to be from a Christian point of view. What you chose to believe is totally up to you.

          • homegirl

            Yes, it is clear that you are the ideal Cruz supporter.

            Cruz is touted by his “Seven Mountains Dominonist” preacher father as the “Chosen One” who will bring this to pass.

            Cruz’s seven mountains have to do with reclaiming, rebuilding, and
            reestablishing America as a Christian country, which means Christians
            taking dominion over seven aspects of culture: family, religion,
            education, media, entertainment, business and government.

            The movement is called Seven Mountains Dominionism and its origin
            comes from Isaiah 2:2: “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
            that the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains.”

          I believe in post birth abortion asshole and you’re a prime candidate…now is murder okay..? No…on any level..especially where the tax payer pays for your sex life choices. NOT OUR JOB. you are the lowest life of society…climb back in you slime pond.

          • John Last

            rc,
            I am pro life ,and NOT a “repugnican’t”, nor a “dumbascrap”.
            in your case, I believe I’d consider abortion.
            at what stage /age ?
            umm, how old will you be next bday ?

          • bobnstuff

            You are your brothers keeper. If you are a follower of Christ you know he never said “except for” but instead said “all”.

        • Evermyrtle

          I and my brothers and sisters were born to poor parents, we did not starve, nor were we murdered. My parents thought that it was evil to kill babies. I THANK MY FATHER GOD!!

          • bobnstuff

            You were only cash poor. You had parents why wanted you and who did their best. You were lucky.

        • John Last

          de-fund them, until the questions ARE answered !
          If they cannot be “de-funded” States can “regulate” them out of business.
          If pp leadership weren’t so arrogant, they’d stop performing abortions for the near future.

    • Evermyrtle

      Investigated by “the enemy of babies.”
      I surely am glad that my Mom and Dad wanted me and decided to keep me instead of “cutting me up” and tossing me in the scrap heap..

    • Jo

      You must not have watched the videos. They were not edited, that is a lie. Listen to the Interviews from ‘People in the Know’, Managers of several Planned Parenthood facilities, who left because they absolutely ARE selling body parts and if a baby survives an abortion, they keep it’s little heart beating long enough to cut it open from head to lower torso, to take the brain first, then everything else. This is an extremely “SICK” society, when people like the ones running our country and the ones defending this practice here. Nancy Pelosi and others admitted they didn’t watch the videos, but they are sure it’s not true. You can believe a lie and be damned. God will surely remove his hand of protection from our country.

      • bobnstuff

        Have you ever heard of the man who made the films, he is a number one sleaze ball. O’keef lies for a living and he is very good at it. So far six states have investigated the films and six states have found them to be lies. Nothing this man has done in the past has proven true, he is totally untrustworthy. He is the master of the edit. He gets away with it because you want it to be true. This is a false witness. Using a lie to stop an evil makes you as bad as the person doing the evil.

        • Jo

          You are so wrong; Members of Congress HAVE watched the videos; Also, Former Mgrs. of the clinics have testified before Congress as to the validity of the videos. The lies are coming from the Liberals to keep this money making slaughter intact. You are the one who needs to check the facts for the truth.

          • bobnstuff

            When did the former manager testify? I can’t find the record. Give me a link so I can see what was said and by who. Thank’s

          • Bonnie68

            Since this is being brought up again and again, I did another set of research of people who HAVE SEEN the video tapes, Here is one

            VOX: “Carly Fiorina Is Wrong About The Planned Parenthood Tapes. I Know Because I Watched Them.”

            Vox reporter Sarah Kliff wrote that Fiorina’s description of the footage in CMP’s videos is “pure fiction,” adding, “Fiorina is wrong: Nobody watching the Planned Parenthood tapes would see those things.” From Vox (emphasis added):

            Carly Fiorina gave a harrowing description of the Planned Parenthood sting videos at Wednesday’s Republican debate, challenging Barack Obama
            to watch “a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.”

            Fiorina is wrong: Nobody watching the Planned Parenthood tapes would see those things. I know, because I recently watched all 12 hours of footage.
            […]
            The videos do show Planned Parenthood officials discussing fetal tissue, sometimes in ways that are callous and jarring. But there is no moment where Planned Parenthood discusses procuring fetal tissue for profit, nor is there the scene that Fiorina describes.
            […]
            But the things Fiorina describes — the legs kicking, the intact “fully formed fetus,” the heart beating, the remarks about having to “harvest its brain” — are pure fiction.
            […]
            [T]here is a mini-documentary series produced by CMP, the group that conducted the Planned Parenthood sting videos, called Human Capital.
            This series uses some footage from the tapes shot inside Planned Parenthood, as well as stock footage, clips of cable news shows, and an interview with a former fetal tissue procurement technician who worked with a company that worked with Planned Parenthood.

            The third Human Capitol video has stock footage of a fetus kicking on a table — though that footage isn’t from inside a Planned Parenthood. It also has an interview with Holly O’Donnell, the former technician,
            who claims to have seen a fetus with a beating heart. O’Donnell says that, in her former job, she was once instructed to procure the brain tissue from the remains of an aborted fetus.
            […]
            There is no video of the images that O’Donnell describes seeing, nor is there any mention of instructions to “keep it alive so we can harvest its brain,” so it’s still not the footage Fiorina describes
            having watched. [Vox.com, 9/17/15]

  • HappyHuntress

    Obama is truly the anti-Christ, may God banish him back to Hell.

    • bobnstuff

      You think Obama is the power that can fight God. Boy your God must be pretty weak if Obama is the anti-Christ.

      • Jean Witte

        I don’t think you quite understand the Anti-Christ! I suggest you read your Bible, if you have one…if not, I am sure you can find one easily, as it is and has been the top selling book EVER!

        • bobnstuff

          I don’t think you understand the power of God, You should read your Bible. Read the what the Anti-Christ is like and the power it has and then look at Obama and try not to laugh at the thought that he could be the Anti-Christ.

          • Jean Witte

            Obama is smart, but in a sinister way, and is using his power to annihilate the country we all love. He says he is a Christian, but has publicly admitted his being a muslim, and you just can’t do both..He is definitely a great deceiver, as is the anti-Christ!!! But I am not certain he is…he just certainly fits the bill!

          • peanut butter

            Jesus said there would be many anti-Christs in the last days, so if he isn’t ‘the’, he is certainly ‘one’.

          • homegirl

            Ms. Witte, you are delusional.

          • I Seigel

            Kind of like how Trump and Cruz are? Smart, but in a sinister way.

          • peanut butter

            If you read (past tense) the ending, you would know that this is ALL in God’s plan. The anti-Christ is only furthering that plan. But God’s plans only go to a certain point of allowing the anti-Christ to function. In the end, ol’ anti- gets thrown in the pit with the false prophet and the devil. And the rest get blasted away by a single breath of Christ. If you understand scripture at all, ahhh I know you don’t, but I’m still going to go on. In 2nd Thessalonians, speaking of the end times, here is His plan.
            2nd Thess. 2:11-12 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    • beegeegirl

      I don’t think he is THE anti-Christ, but I firmly believe that he AND the poop are BOTH foretold false prophets who will use their ”power” to lead astray those too weak to fight them. they use oration and bigger words that they can’t understand, and they think that that is being a leader, when in reality, where they are leading them, there is no coming back if they accept the devil as their lord !! and bobnstuff is just one example of that weakness

      • Jean Witte

        Thanks for your advice. I have had similar conversations with someone named Eric Chamberlain. Haven’t heard from him in a while because almost every response branded him for what he was. I guess he got tired of fighting the battle. LOL!

        • peanut butter

          He might have just changed his name to Rx7pj.

      • John Last

        yeppur, obastid & francis the destroyer !

      • homegirl

        Ted Cruz the Chosen One of the Seven Mountain Dominionists. Surely the sign of 666.

  • Rx7pj

    This idiot is a menace to society

    • Jean Witte

      Are you speaking ot Ted Cruz or president Obama????

      • beegeegirl

        pj boy is of course waiting for attention … don’t feed it … maybe it will go away !!! it’s a troll, or a toad, not sure which, only know it crouches low and waits for unsuspecting conservatives to go by so it can try and become relevant again !! IF it ever was !!!

      • Evermyrtle

        Speaking the truth is not in style now, you can get in trouble doing that. That is why I am so UNpopular. Planned Parenthood is established to legally slay little babies and we who hate it are “a menace to society!” GET USED TO IT!!!

        There is one thing about these blogs, we learn where every body who blogs stand on some subject. I stand for “Save
        The Babies”

      • peanut butter

        obie. Not really. This nut is hopped up on the Rx of 7pj, whatever that is.

      • homegirl

        Clearly he is referring to Ted Cruz the Chosen One of the Seven Mountain Dominonists.
