Cruz also calls on state, local law enforcement to investigate local affiliates
Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. — “The past several weeks we’ve seen a series of videos come out of Planned Parenthood that are nothing short of horrifying … videos of senior Planned Parenthood officials laughing, swilling chardonnay and casually, callously, heartlessly, bartering and selling body parts of unborn children,” said Sen. Ted Cruz earlier today while attending the #WomenBetrayed Rally on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol.
“There is no ambiguity in what we’re seeing. And when we see the truth, after a time for truth comes a time for action. Today is a time for action. When you have multiple individuals caught on tape apparently confessing to multiple felonies that carry with them long jail times, justice must be served.
“Today the U.S. Department of Justice should open a criminal investigation into all of those individuals. Today the U.S. Department of Justice should open a criminal investigation into whether Planned Parenthood, nationally, is a criminal enterprise breaking the law,” the Texas Senator & Republican presidential candidate said.

“This bill will ensure taxpayer dollars are used to fund women’s health, not subsidize a political organization that perpetuates abhorrent practices.”
Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. — “The blatant disregard for precious, human life depicted in these videos is shocking, and we must stand up to protect our most vulnerable,” said Sen. John Cornyn, who along with 24 other Senators introduced legislation to protect women and the unborn by defunding Planned Parenthood. The legislation was crafted by Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA), Rand Paul (R-KY) and James Lankford (R-OK) following the release of a third video earlier this week that exposed Planned Parenthood senior executives discussing the harvesting of the organs of unborn babies. The Senate will vote on the bill early next week. Read More

Hurd: “If an American citizen did this, the IRS would’ve them put in jail.”
Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. — “Let me state this plainly. If an American citizen repeatedly failed to produce documentation the IRS demanded, the IRS would pursue legal action to have that citizen put in jail. Washington bureaucrats need to be held to the same standard, and (IRS Commissioner) Koskinen lied to Congress and the American people he works for,” said Cong. Will Hurd (R-TX) as he and his Republican colleagues on the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee called for President Obama to fire IRS Comm. John Koskinen. Read More

Planned Parenthood is nation’s largest abortion provider, but will taxpayers agree to subsidize it?
From The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board
Democrats have been picking fight after fight in the culture wars, believing they have the upper hand with socially liberal younger votes. But that assumption is now being tested in the wake of videos of Planned Parenthood doctors blithely discussing the harvesting of fetal body parts.
The videos, secretly recorded by anti-abortion activists, show the doctors discussing, among other things, the best way to ensure a “less crunchy” aborted fetus. It’s gruesome stuff, especially for anyone who has viewed the sonogram of an unborn child. Continue Reading.

“Do you know that in the restaurants of New York City, they have an inspection system. You can surprise any restaurant without notice — you can walk in and inspect them. So we are protected in this city from a bad tuna fish sandwich … but we’re not protected from a bomb, but we’re protected from bad tuna fish.”
While Washington think tanks and politicians are struggling to explain the deal, leave it to comedian Jackie Mason to perfectly sum up the problems. Continue Reading.
