GOP House Codifies Obama's Transgenderism in Dark of Night

Source: Conservative Review | May 26, 2016 | Daniel Horowitz

Many are asking what Republicans plan to do to stop Obama’s executive war on culture and religious liberty in pursuit of cultural Marxism.  Now we know that not only will this party do nothing to stop Obama, it will use its control of Congress to codify Obama’s agenda into law.

Late Wednesday night, Republicans allowed a vote on an amendment from Rep. Sean Maloney, D-N.Y., which codified Obama’s executive order 13672 making transgenderism the law of the land.  Obama’s executive order, promulgated in July 2014, instructed bureaucrats to sever contracts with companies that don’t follow the Obama-mandated sexual identity agenda.  This could include companies that don’t allow men into women’s bathrooms in their private corporate offices. The Maloney amendment to the $37.4 billion FY 2017 Energy & Water Appropriations Bill (H.R. 5055) codified that unilateral act into law.

The amendment passed 223-195 with 43 Republicans supporting it. The GOP House just supported arguably the most radical Democrat agenda item in the dead of night.


Once the Maloney amendment passed with GOP votes, Republicans proceeded to do what they always do so well.  They offered side-by-side amendments in an attempt to cover up the damage. They passed the “Pitts amendment” as a second-degree by voice vote to affirm the constitutional importance of religious liberty.  Then they passed the Byrne Amendments to reaffirm that RFRA is still in place and the government cannot discriminate against religious individuals.  Well, as we all know, the Constitution and RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) have been in place for the entire Obama administration, yet he is still able to get away with religious bigotry edicts by claiming they don’t interfere with religious beliefs. Enshrining Obama’s specific edict into law and then passing vanity language reaffirming the general importance of religious liberty is like doing CPR on a dead body.


Now that leadership has loaded this already sub-par spending bill with transgenderism, conservatives should vote against final passage on Thursday.  It’s bad enough that a Republican House cannot be used as a tool to go on offense against cultural Marxism and anti-religious-liberty initiatives.  To pass a bill placing an exclamation mark on that agenda is unforgivable.

    Apparently enough of you raised Cain that now the House has reversed course and voted down tranny madness.

    But make no mistake, this isn’t a conservative victory. They fired a shot across your bow, and realized it was too hot to touch in an election year. This was a test, to see how you would react.

    But remember these three things:

    1) The Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, supports ENDA, which is the Unholy Grail of the Rainbow Jihad. It is their end game, because it’s game, set, and match for the church.

    2) While many of you were getting cancellation and rate raise notices, they still funded Obamacare every year. The bill that does more to promote abortion and target religious liberty than any legislation in American history.

    3) After a summer of gruesome and macabre Planned Parenthood videos, they fully funded that wicked organization. In fact, GOP leadership in the Senate even maneuvered to stop Cruz from filibustering the funding.

    The people running this party have no fear, because they know you’ll vote for them as long as they’re not Democrats. And then they know if they lose the election the Democrats will still let them steal the money anyway.

    Heads they win, tails we lose.

    Trumpsters say we all have to vote for Trump in order to “SAVE” the Republican Party. I say, why bother? What has the Republican Party done for us lately?
