Deace’s Daily Top Three – February 23rd, 2011

In Iowa Politics, National Politics on February 22, 2011 at 10:50 pm

My top three most interesting stories of the past 24 hours.

Scratch another one off the list…I sat through a presentation David Barton of Wallbuilders gave a couple of years ago when he used incontrovertible data to prove that the notion of social conservatives and fiscal conservatives is a false dichotomy. Instead, Barton proved that once a politician compromises on the issue of life, it’s just a matter of time until they compromise on the issue of money as well. The most anti-life politicians are also the biggest government ones. Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, considered a potential 2012 presidential candidate, is the latest example. In 2010, Daniels made national headlines calling for a “truce” on issues like life and marriage to focus on fiscal issues. Now comes word that Daniels has gone ahead and compromised on a core fiscal issue — the issue of right to work. Yet again, once someone disregards the sanctity of life they’ll disregard the sanctity of everything else. Another problem for Daniels here is that the most take-no-prisoners advocacy group the Republican Party has is Right to Work, and if Daniels decides to run for president they will be relentless in coming after him.

What, baby butchers lie? Who knew…A Kansas official just testified under oath that in investigating notorious baby butcher George Tiller, who was gunned down at his church in 2009, he found 144 cases of girls younger that 14 years old receiving abortions from either Tiller or Planned Parenthood. However, this official says he found only one case out of those 144 when either Tiller of Planned Parenthood of Kansas reported a case of child rape. Hmm..

A taste of their own medicine…Texas State Rep. Lois Kolkhorst is my newest hero. She just filed a bill in the Texas State Legislature that would allow any state law enforcement agency to drop off an illegal alien taken into custody at the office of a U.S. Senator or Congressman and leave him there. The bill doesn’t determine what said federal elected official not doing his job of securing the border is supposed to do with the illegal in question, but does require Texas law enforcement to keep a record of exactly how many they’ve dropped off into the custody of the federal elected officials.
