McConnell Should Resign for Helping to Defeat Judge Roy Moore

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman continues to stand by his friend, Judge Roy Moore, in the face of unfounded 40-year old allegations of misconduct.


Montgomery, AL – It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not like Judge Roy Moore, who ran to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. McConnell endorsed his primary opponent, Luther Strange, and poured an estimated $30 million into a campaign against Moore.

When Strange was soundly rejected by the people of Alabama, and Moore became the GOP nominee, McConnell continued to oppose him.

At the first sign of an unproven 40-year old allegation of sexual misconduct against Moore in the waning weeks of the campaign, the GOP halted financial support for Moore’s campaign, and several Republicans withdrew their endorsements, when they should have maintained their support in the face of such obviously fake allegations. Instead, they allowed Moore to be tarred and feathered by the spurious attacks.

However, Mitch McConnell went a step further. He promised to never allow Moore to occupy his Senate seat, if he were to be elected, even though none of the allegations had ever been proved true in the four decades since they supposedly happened.

This sent a strong message to the electorate that Moore would never be accepted as a legitimate Senator, that the people of Alabama would be disenfranchised, and chaos would reign in the Senate.

“It is my opinion that Sen. Mitch McConnell heavily contributed to Moore’s defeat, and because that led to giving a seat away to a pro-abortion Democrat, he should resign immediately,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “McConnell has ensured that pro-life legislation will never pass, Planned Parenthood will never be defunded, and babies that can feel pain will continue to be aborted after the mid-point of pregnancy. He has made sure that the Trump agenda will stall out, and Congress will continue in gridlock. He has betrayed the will of the American people, who support the Trump agenda, especially when it comes to ending abortion. Sen. McConnell, please resign!”

Operation Rescue Stands By Its Endorsement of Judge Moore for Senate; Calls for McConnell to Resign

Washington, D.C. – In light of the spurious, unproved allegations and attacks against Judge Roy Moore, who is a candidate in Alabama’s special senatorial election, Operation Rescue, an outspoken national pro-life group, stands firmly behind Judge Moore and reiterates its endorsement of him for the U.S. Senate.

“I know Judge Roy Moore to be a dedicated Christian and social conservative who will not compromise on the matters of life. He is staunchly pro-life, and a true defender of religious freedom. I urge all the good people of Alabama to cast their votes for Judge Roy Moore for Senate,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, in his August 9, 2017, endorsement of Judge Moore’s Senate Campaign.

Those words are as true today as when they were in August.

In this day when even an unfounded allegation of sexual misconduct can ruin careers, it is no accident that this particular allegation was brought against Judge Moore at this time. His defeat would further destabilize the U.S. Senate and keep it from accomplishing President Trump’s agenda, which is opposed by Democrats, Establishment Republicans, globalists, and pro-abortionists.

“The attacks on Judge Moore are nothing more than dirty politics by those who oppose his staunch conservative Christian values. I don’t believe them for one moment,” said Newman. “After forty years in public service, the fact that the unfounded allegations that are today splashed across headlines have arisen with less than a month to go before this important election is no co-incidence. Establishment Republicans, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, should be ashamed of themselves for jumping to rash conclusions when calling for Moore’s withdrawal from the race.”

On September 27, 2017, Operation Rescue called for the resignation of McConnell due to his failed leadership and inability to defund Planned Parenthood.

“If anyone should resign, it should be Mitch McConnell,” said Newman. “I double down on our call for Mitch McConnell to step aside after his shameful display of prejudging Judge Moore and for his failed leadership in the Senate.”

Fusion GPS Dirty Tricks Customers Include Planned Parenthood, DNC, Clinton, Obama

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – Politics can be a dirty business, and that’s just fine with those who run the shadowy Fusion GPS. Their company has made millions dishing out the dirt.

Fusion GPS is often referred to as an “opposition research” group, but it has gone much farther than just documenting negative information on political opponents. When there is no dirt to be found, it appears that Fusion GPS has no qualms about manufacturing their own dirt.

That crosses the line and becomes a political dirty trick.

The biggest dirty trick of all was the so-called “Russian Dossier” produced by Fusion GPS that smeared the Trump Campaign last year with unfounded allegations of Russian collusion. Fox News host Sean Hannity has insisted that dossier is full of “lies, misinformation and propaganda.”

The Fusion GPS fake dirt-dump was funded by the DNC, the Clinton Campaign, and Barack Obama’s political organization, Obama For America. The money used to pay Fusion GPS was filtered through an attorney to avoid showing up on campaign finance reports in what some have been calling a money laundering scheme.

The fake dossier itself has been exposed as a spurious attempt to smear Trump and influence the 2016 Presidential Election.

Now, Fusion GPS’s gutter level tactics are under investigation by the House Intelligence Committee.

But this isn’t the first time that Fusion GPS has been well paid for manufacturing falsehoods.

In 2015, Planned Parenthood was reeling from negative publicity due to the release of damning undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress that showed Planned Parenthood executives in their own words haggling over the best price in exchange for aborted baby body parts and confessing to other crimes.

In an attempt to diffuse the outcry, Planned Parenthood hired Fusion GPS to conduct a “forensic analysis” of the videos, which were mostly in the form of brief summaries compiled from hours of raw video.

Planned Parenthood got what they paid for.

The Fusion GPS report falsely declared that since the videos had been edited, they were therefore fake. Planned Parenthood pushed the phony report out as gospel truth to a willing mainstream media that never bothered to question whether Fusion GPS had the qualifications to conduct a “forensic analysis” of anything.

In truth, Fusion GPS has no known qualifications in the field of forensic video analysis. But what it does have is expertise in political dirty tricks that concoct “dirt” where there isn’t any.

In contrast, the legal group Alliance Defending Freedom commissioned an analysis of the same videos with Coalfire Systems, Inc., a company that does have credentials in the field of forensic video analysis and are experts in the field of information technology auditing. Their findings were diametrically opposite from the Fusion GPS pulp fiction manufactured to discredit the videos.

The Coalfire Systems report revealed that there was no audio manipulation in the videos. Sure, the videos were edited for length, but the report found that nothing presented was out of context. The Planned Parenthood executives caught on video clearly mean what the videos show them saying.

“How people can still believe that the CMP videos are fakes is astounding,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation and a founding board member of the Center for Medical Progress. “They are actually strong evidence that Planned Parenthood and others have committed crimes. No wonder Planned Parenthood hired Fusion GPS to lie about the videos.”

As a result, Senate and House Committees referred Planned Parenthood to the U.S. Attorney General for criminal prosecution in December, which has yet to take place.

Just like the so-called “Russian Dossier,” the Fusion GPS video report bought by Planned Parenthood was full of “lies, misinformation and propaganda.”

All this has revealed that Planned Parenthood, the DNC, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Fusion GPS are all joined at the hip in a circle of brazen political corruption, where lying, money laundering, and profiting from the mutilated corpses of dead babies can occur without conscience or consequence.

Clinton has been linked not only to Planned Parenthood, but also to the illegal trafficking in aborted baby remains.

In 2016, Operation Rescue released an exclusive exposé that showed how the wealthy Isaias crime family of Equador reached out to Clinton during her term as Secretary of State for asylum after looting millions of dollars from an Ecuadorian bank. After donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic politicians, the Clinton State Department expedited the family’s immigration into the U.S.

During this time, the Isaias family operated DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, located in Orange County, California. On October 11, 2016, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas filed suit against both Isaias companies for profiting from the illegal sale of aborted baby remains obtained from Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in Southern California.

Aside from her greedy lust for power, Clinton had a vested interest in making sure the CMP videos were discredited and Trump defeated, lest her own culpability in Planned Parenthood’s illegal baby-parts trafficking scheme be revealed. Likewise, Planned Parenthood was desperate to defeat Donald Trump to derail possibility of criminal investigations and protect their federal funding, which Trump had vowed to end.

The House Intelligence Committee has now requested Fusion GPS account statements from their bank in order to get to the bottom of exactly who paid for Fusion GPS dirty tricks.

Will the committee find evidence that Planned Parenthood had any part in funding the “Russian Dossier” in addition to the specious video report? If some were to surface, it would not be at all surprising.

It’s time to stop coddling Planned Parenthood and their high-powered political cronies who have repeatedly lied to the American people and have apparently broken the law to avoid accountability for their criminality. Attorney General Jeff Sessions must prosecute them all to the fullest extent of the law.

Pro-Life Leader Calls for McConnell’s Resignation Over Senate Inability to Defund Planned Parenthood


Washington, DC – Yesterday, it was announced that the Graham-Cassidy Repeal and Replace Obamacare bill has been pulled due to three Republican defections, including Sen. John McCain of Arizona. That bill would have prevented over $500 million in tax dollars from going to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation.

The withdrawal of the bill kills any hope of defunding Planned Parenthood of Federal tax money until next year.

“I am extremely disappointed in the Republican members of the U.S. Senate who could not band together to get this bill done. It angers me that we have to fund Planned Parenthood for another year. This means Planned Parenthood will have the resources it needs to continue its killing spree, and thousands of lives will be lost because of it,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Co-Founder of the Center for Medical Progress, which exposed Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal sale organs and tissue obtained from aborted babies.

Defunding Planned Parenthood was a high priority for the Trump administration, which promised to redirect funds from the abortion giant to legitimate health care providers that do not participate in abortions.

“This repeated incapacity to get the job done is completely unacceptable. I call on Mitch McConnell to resign from his position as Senate Majority Leader because of this leadership failure. Republicans must replace him with someone who can unite the majority and lead the Senate to accomplish President Trump’s agenda — and that includes saving innocent lives by defunding Planned Parenthood,” said Newman. “This kind of betrayal of innocent children must not happen again.”

Operation Rescue to Ryan: Keep Your Promise to Defund Planned Parenthood


Washington, DC – Operation Rescue is ardently urging House Speaker Paul Ryan to publicly announce that there will be a provision for completely defunding Planned Parenthood in the next Continuing Resolution.

In a letter faxed to Speaker Ryan yesterday, Operation Rescue President Troy Newman reminds Ryan of promises made by he and President Donald J. Trump to defund America’s largest abortion provider.

“On behalf of the majority of Americans that oppose the tax funding of Planned Parenthood due to their heavy involvement in the morally reprehensible business of abortion, I urge you to keep your promise to the American people,” Newman stated.

Newman added urgency to his plea noting that Operation Rescue has documented 42 medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities since January 2016, that have required ambulance transport of patients to hospitals for treatment that Planned Parenthood was not equipped to provide.

“It is important to note that our list is not comprehensive. The actual number of women injured at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities is expected to be much higher,” said Newman.

He spoke to Ryan about the tragic death of Cree Erwin-Sheppard, who died due to a botched first-trimester abortion she received at Planned Parenthood in Kalamazoo, Michigan, last year.

“An autopsy revealed that. . . Cree received a 4 cm full tissue perforation of her uterus, which caused internal bleeding,” Newman wrote. “She was sent home without having been treated or informed of this life-threatening injury. Cree’s brother, Tyler Sheppard, has since become involved in trying to expose the truth about the lack of skill and care Cree received at Planned Parenthood.”

Newman also mentioned the death of Tonya Reaves, who succumbed to a fatal abortion she received at a Chicago-area Planned Parenthood abortion facility in 2012.

“It is simply unconscionable for Federal tax money to continue to go to this organization that has caused so much human suffering and loss of life in violation of the moral consciences of the majority of U.S. citizens – not to mention the criminal conduct Planned Parenthood is accused of committing,” said Newman.

Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood Federation of America and five of its affiliates were referred to the Department of Justice for criminal investigation and prosecution by House and Senate panels after their investigations revealed Planned Parenthood had illegally participated in the sale of aborted baby remains for profit.

“Planned Parenthood must be defunded in the next Continuing Resolution, in keeping with your promises. We can accept no more excuses for delay,” Newman said.

Please contact Speaker Ryan and demand the immediate defunding of Planned Parenthood.
