The Financial Motivation Behind the Kavanaugh Opposition

It’s no secret that the Left’s by-​any-​means-​necessary (a.k.a unhinged-​take-​no-​prisoners-​search-​and-​destroy) oppo­si­tion to now-​Justice Kavanaugh’s con­fir­ma­tion is their patho­log­i­cal fear that he will pro­vide the 5th vote on the SCO­TUS to over­turn the abom­inable (and abominably-​reasoned) Roe v. Wade deci­sion. It may very well be that this sub­ject falls within the 7% of cases on which Jus­tice Kavanaugh and Judge Gar­land dis­agreed on the DC Cir­cuit Court, and it may also be true that Jus­tice Kavanaugh views abor­tion as “set­tled prece­dent,” but the Left sim­ply can­not take that chance. This is the rea­son that Jus­tice Kavanaugh’s con­fir­ma­tion was sub­ject to so many sab­o­tage attempts.

With the votes on clo­ture and con­fir­ma­tion com­ing up ear­lier in the week, Planned Par­ent­hood tweeted this:

Roses are red
Vio­lets are blue
Sen­a­tors vote NO on Kavanaugh
Or else we’re com­ing for you

Let’s leave aside for now the pos­si­bil­ity that another James Hodgkin­son will see this an an invi­ta­tion to phys­i­cally assault (or worse) sen­a­tors. This is clearly a threat that PP will use their con­sid­er­able finan­cial clout to cam­paign against sen­a­tors who would not vote against Jus­tice Kavanaugh. So where do they get their money? Obvi­ously, a con­sid­er­able amount comes from per­form­ing abor­tions (and appar­ently ille­gally sell­ing the remains thereof), a rev­enue stream that would be in jeop­ardy if Roe v. Wade were over­turned. But the other major rev­enue stream for Planned Par­ent­hood comes from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, which means, from us, the taxpayers.

Every so often, there is an attempt at leg­is­la­tion to pre­vent fed­eral tax dol­lars from being used to fund abor­tions, which would effec­tively defund PP. Their coun­ter­ar­gu­ment to that is that they don’t use the fed­eral money for abor­tions, they just use it to fund all the other supposedly-​great work they do. Any­one with even a basic under­stand­ing of account­ing or just com­mon sense knows that this is pure sophistry since any money they receive that can be spent on other things frees up money from other rev­enue streams to be used for abortions.

But obvi­ously, one of those other tasks to which the fed­eral money is being spent is cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions to democ­rats. So, sim­i­lar to public-​sector unions, PP is tak­ing money from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and using it to enrich the cam­paign cof­fers of democ­rats. So, if RvW is over­turned and PP gets defunded, democ­rats lose a large por­tion of their cam­paign funds. All that blather about “pre­serv­ing a woman’s right to choose” is sim­ply a cover for democ­rats pro­tect­ing a cam­paign rev­enue source that we are pro­vid­ing and that repub­li­cans are thus far too docile to remove.

Let’s hope that this most recent dis­gust­ing dis­play by the Left, includ­ing con­gres­sional democ­rats and Lisa Murkowski, could be just the thing that repub­li­cans need to finally get some back­bone along with an increased major­ity to finally stop this finan­cial merry-​go-​round. How about sim­ple leg­is­la­tion that pro­hibits cor­po­ra­tions and unions that receive fed­eral money from donat­ing to polit­i­cal campaigns?

It’s no secret that the Left’s by-any-means-necessary (a.k.a unhinged-take-no-prisoners-search-and-destroy) opposition to now-Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation is their pathological fear that he will provide the 5th vote on the SCOTUS to overturn the abominable (and abominably-reasoned) Roe v. Wade decision. It may very well be that this subject falls within the 7% of cases on which Justice Kavanaugh and Judge Garland disagreed on the DC Circuit Court, and it may also be true that Justice Kavanaugh views abortion as “settled precedent,” but the Left simply cannot take that chance. This is the reason that Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation was subject to so many sabotage attempts.

With the votes on cloture and confirmation coming up earlier in the week, Planned Parenthood tweeted this:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Senators vote NO on Kavanaugh
Or else we’re coming for you

Let’s leave aside for now the possibility that another James Hodgkinson will see this an an invitation to physically assault (or worse) senators. This is clearly a threat that PP will use their considerable financial clout to campaign against senators who would not vote against Justice Kavanaugh. So where do they get their money? Obviously, a considerable amount comes from performing abortions (and apparently illegally selling the remains thereof), a revenue stream that would be in jeopardy if Roe v. Wade were overturned. But the other major revenue stream for Planned Parenthood comes from the federal government, which means, from us, the taxpayers.

Every so often, there is an attempt at legislation to prevent federal tax dollars from being used to fund abortions, which would effectively defund PP. Their counterargument to that is that they don’t use the federal money for abortions, they just use it to fund all the other supposedly-great work they do. Anyone with even a basic understanding of accounting or just common sense knows that this is pure sophistry since any money they receive that can be spent on other things frees up money from other revenue streams to be used for abortions.

But obviously, one of those other tasks to which the federal money is being spent is campaign contributions to democrats. So, similar to public-sector unions, PP is taking money from the federal government and using it to enrich the campaign coffers of democrats. So, if RvW is overturned and PP gets defunded, democrats lose a large portion of their campaign funds. All that blather about “preserving a woman’s right to choose” is simply a cover for democrats protecting a campaign revenue source that we are providing and that republicans are thus far too docile to remove.

Let’s hope that this most recent disgusting display by the Left, including congressional democrats and Lisa Murkowski, could be just the thing that republicans need to finally get some backbone along with an increased majority to finally stop this financial merry-go-round. How about simple legislation that prohibits corporations and unions that receive federal money from donating to political campaigns?
