  1. Sigh…more lies from Darrell Issa. It won’t work Darrell…

    Courthouse News: Darrell Issa Gets Cheers for Supporting Planned Parenthood

    “Issa was met with cheers when he disagreed with his party on another contentious issue: Planned Parenthood. He said he would not let Planned Parenthood be defunded, as is outlined in the first draft of the American Health Care Act, which the Trump administration insists should not be called Trumpcare.”

    “I went off to college in 1972, just at the point that Roe [v. Wade] became the settled law of the land. For many people in both parties, but disproportionately in my party, they think that it’s not settled. I will tell you that it’s clearly been settled. … Planned Parenthood and other groups will continue to be funded and I will make sure of that,” Issa said.

    OC Register: Darrell Issa Vows to Fund Planned Parenthood

    “Issa also said Planned Parenthood and other women’s health agencies should remain funded.”

  2. Ten years ago, I met Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. He came to San Diego and spoke about how to operate in an “unfriendly” political environment. For many of us, it was the first time involved in politics.

    IN 2010, Republicans rode the “tea party wave” to a House majority but hadn’t picked up seats in California. Gingrich was trying to explain to us that we had “allies” among established Republicans in the California delegation. The best advice he offered was to “watch what they do” rather than “hear what they say.”

    Let’s remember Speaker Gingrich’s advice and look at how Chairman Issa voted when in Congress:

    1-Issa voted to prohibit partial birth abortions (2003),
    2-to treat violent crimes against pregnant women as a simultaneous crime against the unborn children (2004),
    3-against human cloning (2007),
    4-to prohibit taxpayer funds from going to Planned Parenthood (2011),
    5-to prohibit using taxpayer funds for abortions (2015)
    6-to override the veto of that bill (2016),
    7-to require health care providers to save babies born alive during botched abortions (2018).

    Issa has “0%” lifetime ratings from Planned Parenthood Action Fund, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and Population Connection.

    Commenter “details, details” is anonymous and I don’t know who he/she is. I do know that he/she is not an “active” participant on this site, but comments only when Carl DeMaio is criticized or one of DeMaio’s opponents reports success. It is safe to say that “details, details” appears to be, at the very least, an enthusiastic supporter of radio talk-show host DeMaio.

    More importantly, “details, details” is either a partisan Democrat or a fool. He/she is quoting an article, from a liberal reporter, about alleged comments made in the heat of a protest. Chairman Issa’s voting record is perfectly Pro-Life — that is fact.

  3. Well we all know who “Details Details” is…. And I believe your estimate of “partisan Democrat” is mostly accurate; only in this case it’s a liberal masquerading as a Republican. Nobody with any sense or reason would ever believe Darrell Issa is “Pro-Choice”. Darrell is a clear Pro-Life Republican.
