Why I’m Hearing The GOP Is Done …

White House Tape 697/29 — Thursday, March 30th, 1972

“A majority of people in Colorado voted for abortion, I think a majority of people in Michigan are for abortion, I think in both cases, well, certainly in Michigan they will vote for it [ abortion ] because they think that what’s going to be aborted generally are the little Black bastards.” — Republican President Richard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States, serving from 1969 to 1974 1

The Link Between The GOP and The Family–Planners

“Cecile Richards Of Planned Parenthood: Election Shows GOP Should Embrace Family–Planning Roots” (Huff Post Politics)

“Back in the olden days, the Republican Party was the party that supported people’s individual rights and keeping government out of personal health care decisions, so I think there’s a history they can go back to.”  7 — President Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood

Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood President

“A lot of Republicans used to support family planning, and Richard Nixon signed that first federal planning program into law. There’s a clear pathway to [ win back women’s support ], and it’s to listen to the middle of their party instead of the extreme fringe.”  8 — President Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood


Family–Planning Roots

Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.” 9 — Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood founder and member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society (AES).

The American Eugenics Society

“The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics.” 10 — Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood founder and member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society (AES).



Eugenics Held The Key

“I consider that the world and almost our civilization for the next twenty-five years, is going to depend upon a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people. Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.” 11 — Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood founder and member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society (AES).


The Society for Biodemography and Social BiologyClearly Republican President Richard Milhous Nixon, racist as the day is long during a summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, was greatly influenced by John D. Rockefeller III as documented in the White House taped conversation above. John D. Rockefeller III was both the founder and major supporter of the Population Council.12 Rooted in the eugenics movement, John D. Rockefeller III appointed Frederick Osborn, a celebrated eugenicist, author of “Preface to Eugenics” (New York, 1940) and one of the founding members of the American Eugenics Society (AES) as the first president of the Population Council.13 Osborn served as President of the Population Council until 1959.14 However, in 1968 Osborn wrote, “Eugenic goals are most likely to be achieved under another name than eugenics.” 15 Moreover in 1972, right after Roe v. Wade was reargued on October 11th, the American Eugenics Society was reorganized and renamed to “The Society for the Study of Social Biology” and now known as “The Society for Biodemography and Social Biology.” 16

According to Osborn …

“The name was changed because it became evident that changes of a eugenic nature would be made for reasons other than eugenics, and that tying a eugenic label on them would more often hinder than help their adoption. Birth control and abortion are turning out to be great eugenic advances of our time.” 17

 

Republican Party Roots

“I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.” 18 — Frederick Douglass

The Birthplace of Republican PartyThe “Family–Planning Roots” of the Republican Party, purported by Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, is a deliberate disconnect and departure from the real and well-documented roots of the Republican Party. In May of 1854 and in response to the Pro-Slavery Democratic Party, Anti-Slavery members of Congress formed the Republican Party.19 The original Republican Party Platform in 1856 had nine (9) planks, six (6) of which were dedicated to Ending Slavery and Securing Equal Rights for Black Americans. The Democratic Party Platform of 1856 supported and defended slavery.20 The 1860 Democratic Party Platform not only endorsed the Fugitive Slave Law but also celebrated and promoted the Dred Scott decision.” 21

  THE BLACK VOTE, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE LAST STRAW!  

MLK Jail NumbersFrom 1870 to 1876 all of us were Republicans. However, since the 1876 Presidential election and “The Compromise of 1877” the Republican Party has cared more about power than people. [See Notes] The last straw came on Wednesday, October 26th, 1960 when Democratic Massachusetts Senator and Presidential candidate John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy telephoned Coretta Scott King from Chicago and expressed his concern about the jail sentence handed down to her husband Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Kennedy’s brother and campaign manager Robert Francis Kennedy called Judge J. Oscar Mitchell from New York the following day, reportedly to inquire into King’s right to bail. Amazingly and later that same day, King was released on a $2,000 appeal bond after nine (9) days imprisonment. In this interview, King concedes that Kennedy “served as a great force in making my release possible.” While King maintained a nonpartisan stance in the presidential race, his father (i.e., Martin Luther King, Sr., “Daddy King”) publicly announced he was switching his support from the Republican Party’s Presidential Candidate of the United States Richard Milhous Nixon to John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy in light of the Democratic candidate’s call to his daughter-in-law Coretta Scott King. When Daddy King switched his vote to the Democratic Party, this marked the end of a ninety (90) year relationship (from 1870 to 1960) between the Republican Party and the Black vote. [See Notes]

There Is No Way To Escape The Implications!

“There is no way to escape the implications. When an organization has a history of racism, when its literature is openly racist, when its goals are self-consciously racial, and when its programs invariably revolve around race, it doesn’t take an expert to realize that the organization is indeed racist.” 22 — William L. Davis, a Black Financial Analyst

ImplicationsWhile today’s Republican Party has long and incontestably departed from its sonorous and well-documented abolitionist roots, it is equally apparent that the Democratic Party has NOT departed from its wicked and well-documented racist roots. There is no way to escape the implications that President Barack Hussein Obama II and the Democratic Party are co-conspirators in the genocide of Black America. Both wholeheartedly endorse, support and promote an organization whose mission is one of population control.23 An organization that was founded by Margaret Sanger,24 a well-documented proponent of eugenics,25 a celebrated Klu Klux Klan speaker26 and one of the architects of the now infamous 1939 Negro Project,27 whose sole objective was to infiltrate the Black community by hiring Black preachers28 and presenting birth control as a health option for Black women.29 An organization, that according to a Life Dynamics report called, “Racial Targeting and Population Control,” which cross-examined zip codes of minority neighborhoods and abortion facilities across America, is the leader in an industry that has installed 83% of their abortion or abortion-referring facilities in minority neighborhoods.30 An organization that according the very latest research released by Protecting Black Life (an outreach of the Life Issues Institute) has 79% of its surgical abortion facilities located within walking distance of Black American and/or Hispanic/Latino communities.31 An organization that today is the largest abortion provider in the United States of America,32 performing about one-third of all abortions in the country,33 performing more than 329,000 abortions a year, 27,416 abortions a month, 6,326 abortions a week and over 900 abortions a day.34 An organization that earned an estimated $154 million dollars from those 329,000 abortions35 where 40% of abortions were performed on minority women.36 An organization that is financially backed by the United States government, receiving 46% of its annual budget37 in the form of more than $487 million taxpayer dollars a year.38 An organization whose President took a break from her “day job” running the organization’s abortion business to campaign full-time to re-elect President Barack Obama39 and gave more than $15 million dollars to the President’s re-election campaign.40 An organization whose criminal negligence and depraved indifference botched Chicago’s Tanya Reaves second trimester abortion and let the sister bleed for over five (5) hours before calling emergency services.41 An organization where there have been fourteen (14) cases of serious medical emergencies documented at their abortion facilities within the last 24 months.42 An organization that when investigators called the same abortion facilities that had recent and documented medical emergencies, denied any incidents occurred at their abortion facilities and lied about the risks of the abortion procedure.43 An organization that’s been caught advising sex-traffickers on how to secure abortions for underage girls with no questions asked.44 An organization where donors can give money specifically for the abortion of a Black baby.45 An organization whose President publicly claimed her organization provides mammograms, the breast cancer screening procedure for women, but whose staff in twenty-seven (27) different states publicly stated: “We don’t provide those services whatsoever.” 46 An organization that is currently embroiled in a lawsuit that alleges its involvement in “repeated false, fraudulent, and ineligible claims for Medicaid reimbursements” through the Texas Women’s Health Program.47 What is the name of this organization that uses almost half a billion taxpayer dollars to target Black neighborhoods, perform and botch late-term abortions, advise sex traffickers and pimps48 on how to secure taxpayer funded abortions for underage girls and falsely claim to provide life saving breast cancer screening? Why, it’s Planned Parenthood and there is no way to escape the implications that Planned Parenthood is racist and that after the 2012 election, the GOP is done.

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Note(s):

· Reconstruction was ended by the Compromise of 1877, a morally flawed but historically consequential arrangement that put Rutherford B. Hayes in the White House and removed federal troops from the South. [Click Here] This compromise consisted of an agreement to drop the Negro problem from the agenda of national policy questions. Hayes called it the ‘let alone‘ policy. It was similar to what others before him had called ‘popular sovereignty‘ and to what others after him have called ‘benign neglect.’ In each case it meant the same thing: no issue of justice was at stake and, therefore, national policy was not required to address the issue. Whatever the Negro problem was, it was not a public problem.” 

· King was in the Georgia State Prison, Reidsville, Georgia because a group of students representing “The Committee on Appeal for Human Rights,” led by Mr. Lonnie C. King, a student at Morehouse College, had called for his help. Dr. King delayed his trip to Nigeria and joined the student sit-in movement of Atlanta, Georgia. [Click Here] What happened to Dr. King that did not happen to the students that were arrested in the same demonstration? Dr. King was transferred to the “Dekalb County Jail” and charged with parole violation. On Wednesday, May 4th, 1960 King was arrested and issued a citation for driving without a license. He paid the fine and went on with his life. Judge J. Oscar Mitchell claimed Dr. King was also given twelve months probation. This was not known to Dr. King or his representative who paid the fine for the minor traffic violation. Judge Oscar Mitchell of Dekalb County proceeded to sentence Dr. King to four month’s hard labor in the Georgia State Prison for a minor traffic violation. This was the first time such a sentence had been imposed in the history of the state of Georgia! Around four o’clock a.m. the next morning, officers of the law put chains (shackles) on Dr. King, threw him in the prison vehicle, drove 230 miles across the state and incarcerated him in Reidsville State Prison. This was brutality, injustice and evil in high places. However, within less than twenty-four hours the nation and the world responded. Because a young senator from Massachusetts intervened on the side of justice. Senator John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy took a risk for righteousness in support of Dr. King. Judge Mitchell reversed his ruling. This single act of moral and political courage tipped the scales in the presidential election of 1960

Election 2012 Issue: My Letter To Christian Voters

Election Issue

A Letter Of Note …

“If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong!” — President Abraham Lincoln

“Three years into the American Civil War, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln wrote the following letter in order to summarise on paper some points [ including his failures ] he had previously made regarding the recruitment of slaves as Union soldiers and, ultimately, their freeing from the institution of slavery itself. Come the end of the war, all slaves in the U.S. had been freed and, after the adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment in December of 1865, slavery was abolished.” 1

President Abraham Lincoln's Letter To Albert G. Hodges

 

“If God now wills the removal of a great wrong, and wills also that we of the North as well as you of the South, shall pay fairly for our complicity in that wrong, impartial history will find therein new cause to attest and revere the justice and goodness of God.” 2 — Yours truly, President Abraham Lincoln, signed Monday, April 4th, 1864.


A Letter To My Fellow Christians

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”  3 — President John Quincy Adams

In this letter President Abraham Lincoln summarizes a conversation he had with three (3) Kentuckians: Governor Thomas E. Bramlette, Albert G. Hodges and Archibald Dixon. Hodges was the editor of the Frankfort Commonwealth and Dixon served in the U.S. Senate from 1852 to 1855. Governor Bramlette had protested the recruiting of Black regiments in Kentucky. 4

Lincoln’s letter gives us an extraordinary glimpse into his heart and mind as he faced the challenges of his constitutional responsibility as President of the United States of America and why he changed his inaugural position of non-interference with slavery to one of immediate emancipation. Please note that President Lincoln closed his letter to Hodges with a reference to slavery that reflects back on his inaugural address of 1865. In the end President Lincoln writes: “If God now wills the removal of a great wrong, and wills also that we of the North as well as you of the South, shall pay fairly for our complicity in that wrong, impartial history will find therein new cause to attest and revere the justice and goodness of God.” 5

In my opinion, President Lincoln had come to the point in his development as a child of God that many Christians must likewise reach today, before we cast our vote for the next President of our country tomorrow.

If Abortion Is Not Wrong, Nothing Is Wrong!

Election Day Tomorrow Is The Most Important Election since 1860.

Without question, the biological product of a human male and a human female is a human life, with a human nature. Without argument, abortion on demand sheds the blood and takes the life of an innocent human being. As members of the Body of Christ, let us therefore be transparent with each other and confess, without debate, that legalized abortion on demand is incontestably evil.

Brothers and Sisters In Christ …

Tomorrow we vote.

With this in mind and in the same spirit of President Abraham Lincoln’s letter to Albert G. Hodges dated Monday, April 4th, 1864, here is my letter to you on the eve of our 2012 Presidential election.

My message is simple.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry that has killed more babies in the last forty-four (44) years than the population of our seventy-two (72) largest U.S. cities 6 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support abortion which hurts women, and kills more than 3,000 babies each day 7 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support late-term abortions, even during the 9th month 8 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support abortion on demand based on the size, level of development, environment and degree of dependency of the baby 9 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support abortion on demand based on the sins of the father 10 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support legislation that forces us to pay for abortion with our tax dollars, including secret abortions on thirteen (13) year old girls without their parents consent 11 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support legislation that requires states to provide free sterilizations to fifteen (15) year-old girls even if their parents do not consent to the procedure 12 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support legislation that requires insurers to provide free (cancer-causing) birth control pills and Depo Provera birth control 13 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry that targets communities of color by installing 79% of its surgical abortion facilities within walking distance of Black American and/or Hispanic|Latino neighborhoods 14 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry that kills more Black babies in less than four (4) days than Black lives lynched by the Ku Klux Klan in eighty-six (86) years 15 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry that kills over 1,400 Black babies for every 1,000 Black babies born alive in New York City 16 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry whose business results in Black American women having triple the risk of early preterm birth (EPB), defined as delivery at less than 32.0 weeks gestation, and quadruple the risk of extremely preterm birth (XPB), defined as delivery at less than 28.0 weeks gestation, compared with non-Black American women (1.39% in Blacks vs. 0.35% in Whites) 17 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that endorse and promote unlimited abortions and undermine biblically defined marriage 18 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that attack the Church and her freedom 19 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that serve the interests of a party that struggles with including the word “God” and “Jerusalem” in its platform 20 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry that has killed more babies in the last forty-four (44) years than all the American battle deaths in all U.S. wars since 1776 21 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry that has killed more babies in the last forty-four (44) years than all Americans of all ages and races murdered daily by handguns 22 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that would rather shut down the entire U.S. government than stop funding abortion on demand with tax-payer dollars 23 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that would vote against stopping the killing of children in the wombs of their mothers based on race and gender 24 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry whose business contributes to the Black American fertility rate dropping to 1.9 (well below the population replacement rate of 2.1) in 2003 25 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry that boasts a 1.3% a year reduction rate in abortions, a rate that would take fifty-three (53) years to reduce the number of babies killed in the wombs of their mothers by fifty percent (50%) 26 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If a Christian voting for political candidates that support an industry whose business is biologically linked to increased breast cancer risk 27 is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

If nothing is wrong, “if in this life only we have hope in Christ,” then perhaps the Apostle Paul was right when he said: “we are of all men most miserable” 28 having served Christ in vain.

In Closing

“In telling this tale I attempt no compliment to my own sagacity. I claim not to have controlled events, but confess plainly that events have controlled me. Now, at the end of three years struggle the nation’s condition is not what either party, or any man devised, or expected. God alone can claim it29 — President Abraham Lincoln, Monday, April 4th, 1864.


Today I Voted VerticalHow we as Christians vote tomorrow will either signal a renewal of our hearts and minds toward Christ or reflect the depth of the depravity in our souls. Voting is a blood bought and thereby precious privilege we inherited from those who died for our freedom before us. John Jay, a leading opponent of slavery, was an American Statesman, Patriot, Diplomat, a Founding Father of our country, and when nominated by George Washington became the first (1st) Chief Justice of the United States of America. 30 Chief Justice Jay believed that the most effective way of ensuring world peace was through propagation of the Christian gospel. Perhaps Jay, in a letter addressed to Pennsylvania House of Representatives member John Murray, dated Saturday, October 12th, 1816, said it best:

Real Christians will abstain from violating the rights of others, and therefore will not provoke war. Almost all nations have peace or war at the will and pleasure of rulers whom they do not elect, and who are not always wise or virtuous. Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” 31

 

Amen.

This election, let us vote our values vertically.

Brothers, we really need to talk.
