House Democrats Vote to Give Illegal Immigrants Healthcare, Leave Veterans Hanging

By Jose Nino

On September 26, 2019, House Democrats voted to pass  H.R. 3525, the controversial U.S. Border Patrol Medical Screening Standards Act. 

This bill would effectively give illegal immigrants better healthcare than U.S. veterans and servicemembers.
Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise decried the passage of this bill on September 26th.

“House Democrats just voted to prioritize health care for illegal immigrants over health care for our veterans. What a disgrace!,” he said in a tweet.

U.S. Congressman Mark Walker also condemned this vote on his website.

He stated, “Earlier this week, I said impeachment was the House Democrats only agenda. I was mistaken. They just passed legislation that will give illegal immigrants better health care records than our veterans and servicemembers. More and more they are making their priorities clear and it’s absolutely shameful.”

Walker broke down what this bill entailed:

However, there is a major problem with this bill, which Walker notes:

The problem? The Veterans Administration (VA) will not have similar electronic health records systems in place for nine years and the Department of Defense (DOD) will not have those systems for another five years.

Additionally, the new requirements are not funded, so DHS would be forced to take funds from other agency efforts including border security, combatting terrorism, stopping drug and human trafficking, and natural disaster response.

As the days go by, the present-day Democratic Party continues to show its contempt towards everyday Americans by favoring destabilizing policies like mass migration.

Ted Lieu Deletes One Antisemitic Tweet — But Leaves Others Up

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) deleted a tweet Thursday in which he accused U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman of dual loyalty — the same antisemitic theme used in the past by Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

The Israeli government denied Omar and Tlaib entry into the country, based on their support for boycotting Israel. Omar said earlier this year that Americans who support Israel owe “allegiance to a foreign country,” and Tlaib said that U.S. Senators who support Israel “forgot what country they represent.” Both statements were condemned at the time as antisemitic, as they evoke the slur of “dual loyalty” that has often been used as a pretext to persecute Jews.

Lieu had tweeted: “Dear @USAmbIsrael: You are an American. Your allegiance should be to America, not to a foreign power. You should be defending the right of Americans to travel to other countries. If you don’t understand that, then you need to resign.” He madethe same accusation on CNN as he was interviewed by anchor Wolf Blitzer. “He doesn’t seem to understand that his allegiance is to America, not to a foreign power,” Lieu told Blitzer, saying that Friedman should have been fighting for Omar and Tlaib to have the right to enter Israel, despite Israeli law.

On Thursday evening, Lieu deleted his tweet, and tweeted: “It has been brought to my attention that my prior tweet to @USAmbIsrael raises dual loyalty allegations that have historically caused harm to the Jewish community. That is a legitimate concern. I am therefore deleting the tweet.” He did not apologize, however.

In addition, Lieu left up several tweets making the same accusation against several Republican legislators (and using the “dual loyalty” slur in praising Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) for criticizing Israel’s decision).

Trinity College Professor: ‘Whiteness Is Terrorism’

Controversial Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams wrote that “whiteness is terrorism” in a recent social media post. Underscoring the extremism present on many college campuses, Williams claimed his comments are “not controversial in the academy.”

According to a report from Newsweek, Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams is making waves again. Breitbart News reported in June 2017 that Williams had argued that first responders should have let Representative Steve Scalise die after he was shot during a practice for the congressional baseball game. Williams also shared a blog post by an anonymous author that asked black people to withhold life-saving help from white people in need.

“If you see them drowning. If you see them in a burning building. If they are bleeding out in an emergency room. If the ground is crumbling beneath them. If they are in a park and they turn their weapons on each other: do nothing,” the post read.

More recently, Williams tweeted that “whiteness is terrorism.” Now, he’s defending those comments. In a conversation with Newsweek, Williams said that his tweets are only controversial to white people.

“They’re not controversial in the academy. They’re not controversial within the black community. I don’t think they’re controversial at all,” Williams said, defending his tweet. “I think they’re controversial with people who see themselves as white, because it reveals in a telegraph that they’re immersed in that whiteness to a point where it’s hard for them to see anything else.”

“I’m referring to whiteness as an ideology, which everyone in the United States is immersed in because we live in a white supremacy society,” Williams added. “Because there are people walking around believing that they’re white and acting as if they’re white, when there’s just the human race.”

16 students from the class of 2021 withdrew their acceptance over the controversies surrounding Williams. In addition, alumni have withheld $200,000 in donations from the university over the administration’s refusal to sanction Williams for his comments about Representative Scalise.

Up to 18 Times: Congressional Democrats Block Vote on Infanticide

By

Jumping up to 18 total times, Congressional Democrats have blocked a vote on making infanticide illegal – again.

Representative Mike Johnson from Louisiana requested a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act that was not recognized for a vote by the ruling chair. After having his mic muted, Rep. Johnson’s proposed bill was said to not be recognized for debate.

“If the Democrats continue to block consideration of H.R. 962, after 30 legislative days, Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rep. Wagner plan to file a motion to discharge the resolution from the Rules Committee,” according to Life News.

This now makes attempt number 18 that Congressional Republican have proposed a bill that would make it mandatory to give medical attention to infants after being born – 16 times in the House and twice in the Senate.

Sounds sensible, right? Not to the Democrats.

Democrats don’t want this bill to pass because it deals with giving medical attention to babies after failed abortions. But, all the blame doesn’t need to be placed solely on the Dem’s, actually.

Big League Politics previously reported on the proposed bill:

Shouldn’t the so-called “pro-life” Republican-held chamber be the ones pushing these types of bills? One would think. It’s much easier for establishment Republicans to place the blame at the feet of Congressional Democrats instead of taking the blame for not putting their pro-life campaign platform into action.

There is plenty of outrage towards Congressional Dem’s for blocking a vote on this bill that would give medical attention to infants after being born – which is rightfully deserved – but there should be more outrage against Republicans for not being pro-life in action. Establishment Republicans are campaigning on being pro-life to get them elected yet once they earn their seat, all promises of pro-life action goes out the window.

House Democrats Block Bill Against Infanticide For Fourth Legislative Day In A Row

See the source image

On Monday night, for the fourth time in the last four legislative days the House has convened, Democrats blocked Republicans from calling a vote against infanticide. U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) asked for unanimous consent to bring U.S. Representative Ann Wagner’s (R-Mo.) Born Alive Survivors Protection Act up for a vote. After he was blocked, Walker wrote an op-ed for LifeSite News, stating:

I just left the House floor where, for the fourth straight legislative day, House Democrats blocked a vote on a bill that would protect babies who survive abortions from being murdered. I just asked for “unanimous consent” to bring Rep. Ann Wagner’s (R-MO) Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to the House floor for a vote. Democratic leaders, supporting the abortion industry agenda, refused to even consider the legislation, fearing the thought of allowing their members to vote their conscience and what they know to be morally straight.

That followed three other attempts in the previous three legislative days, as LifeNews reports. But even before that, a vote was blocked in the Senate: On February 4, Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) objected to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, and her one vote was enough to prevent the Senate from passing the bill in a unanimous consent vote, as LifeSiteNews reported. That came after Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NB) requested the unanimous consent vote after Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, a pediatric neurologist, had made comments indicating he did not object to letting an infant die after its birth, indicating that a born-alive “infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired.”

Then came the Democrats blocking action in the House: On February 6, Democratsblocked Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy when he called for a unanimous consent vote to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. McCarthy responded, “Democrats just rejected mandatory medical care for every baby born. They’ll have an opportunity to do the right thing tomorrow when Republicans ask for a vote again.”

The following day, February 7, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise asked Democrats to permit a vote on the bill; they refused. Scalise responded, “Before the entire House, I asked for immediate consideration of a bill that protects infants born alive during abortions. But Democrats rejected my motion and refused to consider it. Why won’t they go on record and tell the American people where they stand on infanticide?”

On Friday, November 8, Congresswoman Ann Wagner of Missouri wanted to call a unanimous consent vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Democrats blocked her.

Scalise and Wagner are intending that after 30 consecutive legislative days of calling for a unanimous consent vote, they will file a discharge petition that would force a vote if a majority of House members sign it.

Scalise stated:

Innocent life must be defended and protected at every stage, and that includes babies born alive during an abortion. We must immediately extend legal protections to these vulnerable newborns and prosecute any doctor who would leave them to die. I introduced this resolution to begin the process of forcing a vote on Congresswoman Wagner’s important piece of legislation, especially after horrific actions taken in New York and Virginia to permit infanticide. The silence from Congressional Democrats is deafening and shameful. Every Member of Congress, regardless of party, needs to go on record against infanticide, and we must immediately take action to stop it. The American people deserve to know where their representatives stand on this critical issue.

Wagner added:

I have been horrified to watch radical Democratic legislators argue that babies who survive abortions should not be given the same level of medical care that all other newborn babies receive. Congress must act to protect those who cannot protect themselves. That is why I introduced the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which merely ensures that babies who survive abortions receive immediate, lifesaving care—just as any other baby would. To my colleagues, this is the simplest vote you will ever take: either you support babies being killed after they are born or you don’t. It is time to go on the record and make clear if you think babies born alive deserve medical care, or if you think they should be left to die.”
