Thursday, January 28, 2021 -- Biden's Pro-Abortion Extremism, The Purge Continues, More Taxes

Biden's Pro-Abortion Extremism
President Biden signed more executive orders today, this time rolling back a number of President Trump's pro-life policies.  Biden is taking steps to restore funding to Planned Parenthood, and he is reversing the Mexico City Policy, which was one of the first pro-life actions taken by President Trump.
That means Joe Biden is committing your tax dollars to pay for abortions overseas, a radical position that very few Americans actually support. 
According to a new Marist poll conducted for the Knights of Columbus, 77% of Americans, including 55% of Democrats, oppose U.S. tax dollars subsidizing abortions performed in other countries.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell blasted Biden's pro-abortion extremism this morning on the Senate floor, saying, "An administration that wanted to pursue unity might observe that 77% of Americans — including a majority of Democrats and 85% of independents — don't want taxpayer dollars to fund foreign abortions."
Biden's actions today are bad enough, but they are even more insulting coming just hours before the annual March for Life, which is tomorrow.  This year's march was delayed because of the inauguration. 
Knowing how important abortion is to the left-wing base, it is surprising that Biden didn't issue these orders sooner, unless the timing was deliberate.  It hardly seems coincidental.
The Purge Continues
The San Francisco School Board voted this week to rename 44 schools that were named after famous Americans, including several founding fathers. 
The names being purged from the schools include:  George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Francis Scott Key, Paul Revere and Roosevelt.  Apparently the board isn't sure whether it's Teddy or Franklin Roosevelt, but better to be safe than sorry, I suppose.
Never mind that the schools are still closed and there aren't any children in them to be offended (if they ever were).  This decision is another sad example of the left's absurd priorities. 
It's also outrageous.  In its own way, it is in the same category as tearing down monuments to our founders.  But it is also a symptom of a much bigger problem. 
The erasing of Lincoln's name and Washington's name is a reflection of how they have been erased from textbooks.  The school board is just doing the cleanup of the final stages of the left's dirty work. 
They have already erased Washington, Lincoln and Revere from our children's hearts and turned them into villains.  So it's only natural that they would then remove their names from our schools.
There's a reason young Americans today are the least patriotic generation in history.  There's a reason why a young lady on the U.S. Women's Soccer team who did not kneel during the national anthem was attacked and shamed while the kneelers were praised.
By the way, Joe Biden made it clear that he stands (or kneels) with the left in this debate.  What he said this week about America having never lived up to our ideals is exactly what the San Francisco School Board members said when they voted to purge Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln from school names.
And think about the incredible hubris here.  No one will ever remember the names of these school board members who dare to pass judgment on the legacies of the truly incredible men who created this nation and contributed so much to its greatness.
But this didn't happen in a vacuum.  The values that were in our schools for decades had to be purged first.  So, the left kicked prayer out of the schools, and the Pledge of Allegiance soon followed. 
When you remove the values of God and love of country, another set of values will replace it.  Dr. James Dobson and I warned years ago that no society can have valueless schools.  Something would fill the void. 
Biden's War On American Energy
I want to briefly take you back a couple of months to the final presidential debate.  Joe Biden insisted that he wouldn't ban fracking, even though he had in the past. 
But President Trump kept pressing Biden, warning that he would destroy the American oil industry.  To which Biden said, "I would transition from the oil industry, yes."  That was an important and revealing moment, which takes us to where we are now.
Yesterday Biden signed another slew of executive orders to combat climate change.  And what we're seeing now can only be described as an attack on the successful American energy industry. 
Politico concluded that Biden is pushing "a much vaster climate plan than Obama ever attempted."  His executive orders yesterday are a huge gift to Russia, Iran, China, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.  And it will cost you more pain at the pump. 
More Taxes Coming
Think gas prices are too low?  Do you really want to pay more at the pump? If you answered "Yes" to these questions, you're in luck! 
President Biden is taking immediate action to guarantee higher oil and gas prices by killing the Keystone pipeline and banning new oil leases.
But wait . . . There's more!
Pete Buttigieg, Biden's nominee to be secretary of transportation, wants to tax you for every mile you drive.
Go to grocery store, pay a mileage tax.
Drop your kids off at school (if their school is open), pay a mileage tax.
Commute to work (I hope it's a short one!), pay a mileage tax.
Travel several states for a vacation, pay a big mileage tax! 
In all seriousness, folks, who voted for that? 
Cheney's Challenge
Rep. Liz Cheney is facing a serious challenge back home.  A new poll finds that 73% of Wyoming Republicans have an unfavorable view of Cheney after she joined Nancy Pelosi in voting to impeach President Trump. 
In a head-to-head matchup against state Senator Anthony Bouchard, Cheney loses by more than 30 points.
The poll is a warning to the other nine House Republicans who joined Cheney in her betrayal. 
With your support, we will do everything we can to make sure they are replaced with solid, unapologetic conservatives!
