Republicans Disgrace America By Using Fake Videos To Vote To Defund Planned Parenthood


Even though the Planned Parenthood videos have been proven to be edited fakes, House Republicans are moving forward with a vote to defund the organization.

The Hill reported:

House Republican leaders are planning a vote to freeze funding for Planned Parenthood this fall, according to GOP aides, a move that could help mitigate an inter-party battle and avoid a government shutdown.

“We’re encouraged to know there will be a vote this fall, whether it’s our bill or something that is similar,” a spokesman for Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) said Friday.

A bill to defund Planned Parenthood is expected to come up for a vote shortly after lawmakers return from recess, aides said. It would likely take the form of legislation from Black which would block federal funding to Planned Parenthood for one year, although leaders are still weighing their options.

Speaker of the House John Boehner is trying to avoid a government shutdown by allowing House Republicans to vote on a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood, even though the videos that are the basis for the vote have been proven to be edited fakes.

Republicans are still going to vote to take away access to a vital healthcare resource from millions of Americans even though an expert analysis of the videos found that they were not authentic, “Fusion GPS analysts reviewed all four of the “full footage” videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, totaling more than 12 hours of tape. This analysis did not reveal widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation, but we did identify cuts, skips, missing tape, and changes in camera angle. A forensic video expert, Grant Fredericks, reviewed segments of tape identified as suspicious during this preliminary review. This professional analysis revealed that the full footage videos contained numerous intentional post-production edits.”

Boehner and his House Republicans have a long record of disgraceful behavior since taking the majority, but allowing a vote on a bill that is based on videos that have been proven to have been edited and manipulated is the worst thing that this Republican majority has done.

Anyone who votes to defund Planned Parenthood based on the videos is incapable of accepting reality, and should not be holding public office.

House Republicans are about to hit a new low, and it is time for the American people to rise up and stop their ideologically driven insanity.

  1. And this surprises who? The GOP’s whole platform is based on lies, cuz, ya know, Republican Jesus, lies, cheats, and steals to get what he wants

  2. …still maintain the Boner is the most corrupt SOB to EVER serve himself at the expense o’ ‘We the People’…

  3. So your idiotic ass want to take away more than 4,665,000 women and men health services, cancer screening and contraceptives so people can make their own reproductive choice?

  4. “This professional analysis revealed that the full footage videos contained numerous intentional post-production edits”

    Always take something out of context. It’s the Republican way.

  5. I think the republicans lied to everyone about WMD’s and got us in a war that we are still dealing with. It worked then so why not try it again. Senator Sanders did not believe it then. #feelthebern

  6. The only thing just as bad as these lying Republicans are the gullible or willfully ignorant folks who choose to believe them in spite of the fact that the videos have been discredited. They most be living on another planet if they think that eliminating PP will get rid of abortions. If they had their way, we would return to a time when poor, desperate women underwent dangerous, life-threatening self-induced or back-alley abortions that killed many women and maimed others for life. It’s obvious that they are deliberately ignoring all the non-abortion services that many poor men and women otherwise would not be able to afford. That’s because their main agenda is to set women’s reproductive rights back with abortion as the pretext, and they consider these folks acceptable collateral damage.

  7. I just can’t read anymore of this Trump crap! I’m an independent who will vote straight Democrat in 2016.

    I need to find a sight that reports on what Dems are saying and doing. I already know how evil the right is. I think most of us do.

    I do appreciate the links provided by some of the more intelligent people who post here. (DJ…thank you!)

  8. …Log Cabin…it’s the Republican Gay…
    {{{I’m waaay too tired if I come up with something like this!!!}}}

  9. Defunding PP is really a push to move this pot of gov’t money to a “Faith-Based Initiative” instead.

  10. I like a group I found on Facebook. It’s the Democratic 2016 Change Campaign. It’s a closed group so you’ll need to request permission. You also won’t have to put up with a bunch of nonsensical trolls that you’ll often find in open groups. There is plenty of info, take what you need and leave the rest. Hope this helps.

  11. Exactly. Remember they used fake pimp videos from Breitbart and Criminal James O’Keefe to attack Acorn and Shirley Sherrod? Fox ran with it and was left with egg on their faces after finding out they were fake videos. They then went back on Breitbart who had to apologize. The GOP should get swamped with scornful emails if they even attempt to use fraudulent tapes. I’m ready to visit their facebook and twitter accounts along with writing them emails. Being retired gives me plenty of time to harass them. Some of them have blocked me already. I’m sick of the rotten bast*rds.

  12. No, the videos taken at the Planned Parenthood showing the selling of fetal parts were not faked. They were edited, but the fact of the matter is that these creatures were selling baby body parts. And before you people jump on me, keep in mind that nearly 50% of liberals are against abortion. Also, before you start yapping about how the unborn child is not able to live independently, so it’s all right to kill him or her, human children are not able to live independently until they reach their teens. If you plunk a 5 year old down on his or her own and tell them to live independently, they would all die fairly quickly, either from dehydration, hunger, or hypothermia. If it’s all right to kill unborn babies, then it’s okay to kill children up to the age of 12 or 13, when they can live on their own.

  13. Roe vs Wade is the law of the land, you don’t like it. Tough. Your choices are: don’t have an abortion, or pretend you never had an abortion. Highly edited video is indeed faked, you can make anyone say anything you please with enough footage and creative editing. Otherwise why the need to cut, splice, erase, edit? You don’t like that fetal parts are collected and that clinics are reimbursed for that collection, storage, transfer. Again I say tough. It’s perfectly legal, Congress approved it, and many Americans suffering from diseases like Parkinsons are reaping the benefits of stem cell research and treatment. I would add that imo, it is sheer idiocy to attempt to defund the very health resources that women rely upon to prevent pregnancy, and thus result in fewer abortions. As if the aim was fewer abortions. Truth is, this is just another attempt by politicians to insert themselves into women’s Dr/patient decisions. It is insulting, invasive, uncalled for, and needs to …

  14. The FALSE and heavily doctored video is a PHONY. JUST LIKE the one that was done by James O Keef on ACORN,,and it is being perpetrated again this time Planned Parenthood will be the victim of a hate campaign from the Christian right,,,and serve the same purpose of the James O K eef phony film what ever happend to that ?…

  15. Don’t kid yourself – just about every journalist or reporter that ever lived included statements out of context to make things look how they want them to look (it’s also a lot faster than including entire transcribed paragraphs). If they deny this, they are just not being honest with themselves. All political parties (in every country) do this, just about every day. Most of the time, humans believe what they want to believe, not necessarily the truth.

  16. I don’t care about doctored videos all I care about is paying Federal money for murdering babies. Highshool students know what a baby is and we don’t need the Federal judges and Congress to tell us. That is just their sneakie and crooked way to take a stand against honest and decent people trying to clean up another rotten money pit that probably only puts money in their pockets. We need to follow the money and see who all gets money for pay off to keep them open.

  17. Jesus Christ!!! Are you stupid? Have you not heard of the Hyde Amendment? I am sick and tired of being rude but you dumbasses give me no choice

  18. Mr Easley, continues posts another article full of arrogance that enjoins other arrogant people to rejoice. I doubt that djchefron is actually tired of being rude as stated above. It seems to me that is just how he is. It is unbelievable to me that anyone can defend that which is indefensible. All of the statements made in these videos were statements made by the people in the videos. How can anyone defend these comments?

    in reference to body parts from the baby:
    “You know, the money is not the important thing for me, but it has to be big enough that it makes it worthwhile for me…”
