Five Facts The Media Aren’t Telling You About the Texas Abortion Filibuster

Saint Wendy

St Wendy Davis. Media Darling of the left.

In the wake of Sandy Hook, to justify openly pressuring Congress to restrict our Second Amendment gun rights, the national media frequently pointed to polls showing majority public support for laws that would broaden the scope of background checks. When this law failed to overcome a filibuster in the Senate, the media bellyached for weeks about the filibuster and the GOP “obstructionism” that thwarts the will of the people.

This is not a new kind of media attack against the political right. Ever since Obama assumed the presidency, under the guise of reporting, the media have attacked our “do nothing” congress as dysfunctional and incapable of accomplishing anything. According to the media, a legislative body “doing nothing” is a huge problem. As the media push to see millions of Democrats legalized through immigration reform, look for this media narrative to explode at the GOP Congress.

But in reality, we all know that this is wild hypocrisy and that our media see some obstructionists who thwart the will of the people as a lot more equal than others.

Take for instance, State Senator Wendy Davis, the Texas Democrat who is now a full-fledged national Media Dahling after her 11-hour filibuster managed to block the Texas Senate from passing laws that would have outlawed abortion after 20 weeks a

Wendy Davis transformed into media ‘saint’

The Guardian, the ultra-left wing communist newspaper in London and the mouth piece for the Labor Party and Edward Snowden, has blasted Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Read it here  Their headline screams that Perry attacked Texas Sen. Wendy Davis’ pregnancy.

Davis and Gosnell

Wendy Davis and Gosnell. Given sainthood by the liberal media.

Davis,  if you are Rip Van Winkle and haven’t heard,  led a 13-hour filibuster and successfully killed pro-life legislation in the past special session of the Texas Legislature.  Don’t worry!  Gov. Perry immediately called another special session to consider just one thing: Senate Bill 5 which some say will close most abortion mills in Texas.  There is little chance that anyone could filibuster the bill when the special session opens on Monday, July 1.

Perry made the statement to a pro-life group in Dallas.  Here it is:

“No life is trivial in God’s eyes. The fact is — who are we to say that children born into the worst of circumstances can’t live successful lives?” Perry asked at the National Right to Life convention in Dallas.

“In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances,” he continued. “She was the daughter of as single woman; she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.”

Madam Mao

Everything that that media darling Wendy Davis has said has been canonized and everything anyone says against her is attacked and  drowned out.  It’s just as the Inkdemon  predicted.  The media and the abortion issue has made a star out of “St. Wendy”.   Right now, she is Joan of Arc, the Mother Mary, and Madam Mao all rolled up into one.

But have you really looked at this hag?  She has big warts all over her face.  She could be the before of  any before-and-after plastic surgery commercial! (EYES ROLL)  The Inkdemon is not suggesting she have surgery.  In fact, the Inkdemon wants Davis to remain looking like the hag that she is.

The Inkdemon also has criticism for the tea party in Texas over this issue.  The states roads are falling apart. High-speed commuter rail is needed desperately.  Above all, Texas is running out of water.  The tea party’s agenda has so sapped world-wide attention that none of these vital issues were seriously addressed.  Don’t worry, when the state runs out of water, everyone will wake up.  … or will they?

Another big defeat for the tea party in Texas

By The Inkdemon©

Not only was it a big defeat of the tea party, but Texans will witness the making of a new femi-NAZI cultural icon.  Her name is Wendy Davis.

Sen. Davis killed the pro-life bill in the Texas Senate with a marathon filibuster from the floor.   After Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst gaveled the senate adjourned last night, the pro-abortion forces conducted a giant victory celebration under the Texas Star in the Capitol rotunda.

Meanwhile, the world’s leftist media hailed Davis’ feat.  She garnered front page images and ink on most of the world’s newspapers.  Look for Sen. Davis to be paraded before the world’s media  as a victorious warrior in the “War on Women”.  Meanwhile, Texas babies will continue to die.

Tea party enemy Texas House Speaker Joe Straus effectively killed all the pro-life legislation in the regular session. Straus had been elected unanimously by the representatives with tea party approval even though it was well known that Straus was Pro-Choice..  But tea party forces persuaded Texas Gov. Rick Perry to put the abortion issue on the agenda for a special session along with consideration of U.S. Attorney Eric Holder’s re-work of the state’s voting boundaries.

The tea party made an enemy out of Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, and the movement never had enough votes to bring legislation to a vote on the Senate floor without Dewhurst’s approval.

This may spell a retreat and the end of the tea party movement.   That will remain to be seen.  Right now, the tea party seems very vulnerable.

 

Hayes County GOP supports Joe Straus — Statesman

Editor’s note — Is this another defeat for the Tea Party in Texas?

Hays County Republican Party backs Straus for Texas House speaker

By Ciara O’Rourke
American-Statesman Staff

SAN MARCOS — Hays County Republican Party Chairman Shawn Blakeley issued a statement Wednesday announcing that he and the party’s executive committee are throwing their support behind Texas House Speaker Joe Straus.

Straus is again facing a challenge from the right in his bid for another term at the lower chamber’s helm. House members choose the speaker, and Straus beat out two Republican challengers in 2010 when he faced similar opposition from conservative activists.

“The speaker’s record in advancing solid conservative legislation, and balancing the budget without raising taxes, is a fulfillment of promises he made prior to last session,” Blakeley said, adding that the party’s executive committee trusts state Rep. Jason Isaac, “who has said the speaker is worthy of our support.”

Blakeley said the executive committee passed a resolution doing just that.

Rough time for House Speaker Straus | Amarillo.com Mobile

Despite a loss of seven seats in the 150-member Texas House of Representatives and failing to win what once looked like a winnable state Senate seat, Republicans remain in firm control of the statehouse.

Whether that’s good news for House Speaker Joe Straus is debatable in light of some developments after Tuesday’s election.

First, more than 100 conservative activists from across the state have endorsed East Texas GOP Rep. Bryan Hughes, the only challenger Straus has so far. By this time two years ago the San Antonio Republican had two, one of whom was Warren Chisum, R-Pampa.

If Straus has the 76 pledges he needs to win a third term as speaker, he hasn’t said it.

One reason may be because 40 of the 43 new House members are truly first-timers. The other three – all Democrats – are former members returning after a two-year absence.

The other reason may be the Democratic minority, which once embraced Straus, remains unhappy with him. As San Antonio’s Democratic Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer – a former ally – said before last year’s session ended, Straus “has turned his back on Texas women and minorities.”
