With sweat and tears, conservative Americans gave the Republicans: a majority in the House, a majority in the Senate and the ultimate victory and crown: the White House. They did it because they believed their conservative promises.
For years Republicans could not defund Planned Parenthood (the largest network of abortion and family planning clinics in the U.S.) because socialist Democrats had a majority in the House, the Senate and had the White House. Now the upper hand belongs to Republicans. If formerly Democrats could fund abortion, now Republicans can defund it… if they want.
Yet, it seems that they do not want, even though they have been elected by their conservative constituents just for standing against abortion.
Last week, the GOP-controlled Congress passed an Omnibus Spending Bill (Omnibus Bill) valued at $1.3 trillion in order to keep the U.S. government from shutting down.
Yet, was it worthwhile not to shut it down?
Actually, Trump’s signature did much more than just hindering the U.S. government from shutting down. It hindered the abortion industry from shutting down too.
The Omnibus Bill preserves Medicaid “reimbursements” and Title X funding for “family planning.” This is to say, it maintains America’s $500 million annual contribution to Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion mill.
Basically, when Trump approved the Omnibus Bill, he applied capital punishment on all his promises of defunding abortion.
Does a government funding abortion deserve not to shut down?
Trump’s approval of the Omnibus Bill is especially tragic because last January he delivered a historic pro-life speech.
The big victors have been pro-abortion activists.
Abortion was not the only tragedy in the bill Trump signed.
The Omnibus Bill funds abortions and does not fund the building a Border Wall, which is essential for the U.S. security.
It funds war on babies on American soil and wars on foreign soil, by increasing military expenses. Even though the main responsibility of a military force is to guard the borders of its own nation, U.S. expenses support the U.S. Global Police, including 800 U.S. military bases around the world. It is hard to imagine a more ridiculous and hypocritical case than a nation that can guard its military ambitions around the world but is unable to guard its own backyard!
The big victors have been neocons.
Conservative columnist and author Ann Coulter late Tuesday accused President Trump of being an “ignoramus” who is “not giving us what he promised” during a speech at Columbia University.
“I knew he was a shallow, lazy ignoramus, and I didn’t care,” Coulter told the audience, which was largely comprised of College Republicans.
“It kind of breaks my heart,” she added. “He’s not giving us what he promised at every single campaign stop.”
Still, Coulter contended that Trump’s campaign was vastly preferable to those of his competitors, whom she likened to escaped mental patients.
“We had 16 lunatics being chased by men with nets running for president—and Trump,” Coulter explained. “So of course I had to be pedal-to-the-metal for Donald Trump. I’d been waiting 30 years for someone to say all these things,” probably referring to his promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and also his promise to stop neocons’ military meddling in other nations.
In 2016, Coulter published the e-book “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” to challenge America to vote in Trump.
The book praises Trump’s promises of
- Building a Wall. Coulter said, “Trump announced he was running for president in a speech talking about Mexican rapists, pledging to deport illegal aliens and build a wall.” After over one year in office, Trump has not built yet even an inch of the wall.
- Not meddling in Syria. Coulter said, “Trump was the only Republican—other than Rand Paul—who did not propose starting a slew of new wars in the Middle East.” Yet, last year she had to criticize him for breaking his promise on Syria.
- Not arming Ukraine against Russia. In her book Coulter pointed that all candidates, except for Trump, had promised to arm Ukraine. She remarked, “How many Americans wake up every night in a cold sweat in anguish about Ukraine? Even people afraid of global warming aren’t worried about that. Ukraine was part of Russia for most of its history. It would be as if Putin sent fighter jets to force America to give Texas back to Mexico. Most Americans not only don’t care if Putin takes Crimea and the Ukraine.” Yet, Trump broke his promise.
- Getting along with Putin. Coulter added, “Most Republicans seek to prove their conservative bona fides by having an itchy trigger finger—particularly toward Russia. These days, there’s no one to oppose them. The American left used to be totally fine with the Soviet Union—the gulags, the invading Eastern Europe, the show trials. Until the anti-gay stuff. Now the Russkies are walking on the fighting side of liberals!” Even Trump has embarked the anti-Putin train.
Coulter is right. Trump is not giving America what he promised at every single campaign stop — at least, not on foreign policy, where Trump used to disgust neocons, but now he pleases them on every at every single point.
The vital mission of the military is to protect its own backyard. The U.S. military is failing horribly in this mission, because they are too busy in neocons’ military adventures in other nations.
Before Trump approving the Omnibus Bill, pro-life leaders pleaded with him to veto it.
“Mr. President, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the U.S., making them one of the largest abusers of human beings in the world,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and one of the founding members of the Center for Medical Progress. “It is currently under investigation by your Department of Justice for engaging in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains for profit, as revealed in a series of authenticated undercover videos that shook the nation in 2015.”
“During your 2016 Presidential Campaign, you promised to defund Planned Parenthood,” he reminded Trump. “I urge you now to keep your promise and veto the Omnibus bill until it no longer provides any of our tax money to Planned Parenthood.”
Yet, Trump broke his promise. He did not veto the Omnibus Bill.
If a foreign force were slaughtering over 500,000 innocent American babies a year, the U.S. military would work to defeat the perpetrator. Such high numbers of innocent lives are actually being destroyed on American soil, and the perpetrator is not China and not even America’s favorite bogeyman: Russia. The perpetrators are abortion mills, especially Planned Parenthood. Abortion is today the leading cause of murder in the United States.
The U.S. military is doing nothing to destroy this enemy.
President Trump, who for so many times has promised to defund Planned Parenthood and its abortion holocaust, signed the Omnibus Bill. In the past, the U.S. Abortion Holocaust had the assistance of socialist Democrats to keep killing. Now the U.S. Abortion Holocaust needed Trump’s assistance, and it received.
No government deserves to continue operating by delivering its innocent babies on the medical altar of slaughter.
No government deserves to continue operating by abandoning the protection of its borders to invest in the military meddling of other nations’ borders, just to satisfy neocons.
It just sad that conservatives vote for politicians to save America from abortion, and then politicians need to keep funding abortion to save the government from shutting down.
What is the point for conservative constituents to elect “conservative” politicians if they eventually approve funding for abortion?
“I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again,” Trump said earlier this month. An insightful cartoon portrays Trump about to jump from a plank from a skyscraper and promising to his advisers “Ok, but I’m never doing this again.” There will no second chance.
For the sake of innocent babies condemned to medical and government slaughter, could American conservatives just shut down the U.S. government? Or will they wait for God to do it?
