Our Candidate For Speaker – Conservative Jim Jordan – Will Defund Planned Parenthood

We’ve referred to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan as Democratic Speaker Paul Ryan because, even though he ran as a Republican, his policy goals have more often aligned with Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Adam Schiff and Chuck Schumer, than they have with President Trump and the conservatives of the House Freedom Caucus.

Jim Jordan Planned ParenthoodCase in point is Ryan’s failure to produce on pro-life legislation.

For years Capitol Hill establishment Republicans have been running on defunding Planned Parenthood, and we recall that when establishment loser Mitt Romney was the GOP presidential nominee apparent, and was casting about for a running mate, one of Paul Ryan’s selling points was that he was “pro-life.”

Ryan’s pro-life bona fides were a mystery to most who looked deeply into his record, but they were apparently enough to jolly conservatives along through Romney’s content-free campaign for President.

Fast forward to Ryan’s “draft me for Speaker” campaign in 2015 and once again his allegedly pro-life stance helped overcome the last bit of hesitancy among many conservatives who swallowed hard and voted for him for Speaker.

Boy was that a mistake.

In the almost three years that Paul Ryan has been Speaker Planned Parenthood has been regularly funded and little has been done to rein-in the slaughter in Planned Parenthood’s abortion abattoirs, but help may be on the way in the person of Ohio Representative Jim Jordan.

Jordan, one of the founders of the House Freedom Caucus, has been the object of a mini-groundswell of sorts from grassroots conservatives demanding that, with Ryan’s departure, House Republicans elect new conservative leadership.

And unlike Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarty, Steve Scalise and the rest of the existing establishment Republican “leadership” Jordan has not been compromised by voting to give our tax dollars to the baby killers of Planned Parenthood.

Rep. Jordan has been a passionate advocate for unborn babies, as well as efforts to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, which performs about 320,000 abortions and reaps in about $500 million tax dollars annually.

According to our friends at Conservative Review, Jordan was one of only 24 Republicans who voted against the omnibus spending bill, in part, because it included taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood.

And, as our friends at pointed out in a recent article, back in 2015, Jordan was one of the lawmakers who questioned Planned Parenthood’s then-CEO Cecile Richards about selling aborted baby parts. The U.S. Congressional hearing was held soon after the Center for Medical Progress released its first several videos exposing the abortion chain’s baby body parts trade.

“If the videos were selectively edited, if this was entrapment, all untrue, then why did you apologize?” Jordan asked, referring to Richards’ statements after the first video was released.

Richards refused to give a direct answer to Jordan’s question.

While Ryan has constantly hidden behind the excuse that the Senate doesn’t have the votes, Jordan has taken a different view.

In March, when the Republican majority in Congress passed the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill. Jordan was one of just 25 House Republicans to vote against a procedural rule advancing the bill toward final passage and taking away the right of members to offer amendments to improve the bill or cut spending he said:

No wonder Americans hate this place [Congress]. No wonder they’re cynical… This ticks me off. There’s just no other way to say it, and more importantly, it ticks off the American people, and it should.

Jordan then asked if Republicans would get back to doing what they told voters they would do. “Or are we going to keep doing pretend things like this?”

For the past decade Speaker Boehner and Speaker Ryan have made “doing pretend things” the modus operandi of the Republican majority in the House.

If you want a Speaker who will actually defend the unborn, not just talk about it, we urge you to call Rep. Jim Jordan through the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) tell Rep. Jordan you want a real fighter for the pro-life agenda as the next Republican Speaker of the House, and that you want him to be that Speaker.
