It's been a minute since we've heard from Clay Chastain and whilst a Republican hasn't won this Congressional seat since before The Great Depression, there is no doubt Mr. Chastain offers some provocative ideas in his latest blast . . . Checkit:
If sent to Washington, Clay Chastain claims he will go to protect life.
Today, the "March for Life" takes place in Washington. Where is a statement about protecting innocent human life from Congressman Cleaver (former Christian minister), or any coverage of this cause from Kansas City's MSM media (now obsessed with the Super Bowl)?
As a Republican Congressional candidate, here is my "Protection of Life" platform:
* The first precept of law is the protection of life: As a family man and Christian with two daughters, I support defending defenseless life. Thus, I oppose abortion (starting at conception) except in the rare instance where the mother's life is at stake. Unlike the apparent hypocritical positions of Cleaver and Biden (they oppose abortion personally but, support abortion politically), I personally and politically oppose abortion. I greatly regard and respect women. However, my spiritual conscience compels me to support over turning Roe vs. Wade.
* The first precept of law is the protection of life: Citizens living in America's inner cities are being murdered in horrific numbers. I have a plan FACE (Fix America / Conserve Earth) that proposes (in part) taking a percentage of America's bloated and unnecessary $750 billion a year military budget to fund stopping this horrible urban carnage by...ridding inner cities of illegal drugs, illegal guns and nefarious gangs; removing trash, litter and graffiti; and creating more economic opportunity and equality. I will support doing whatever it takes to make that wrong right.
* The first precept of law is the protection of life: The excessive burning of fossil fuels along with over development and manic consumption are devastating all of our planet's eco-systems and will soon threaten our own. Animals, insects and plants - already decimated by habitat destruction, pesticides and pollution - are set to fare even worse as our earth takes to the oven. With our earthy environment in free fall... oceans dying (dwindling fish populations and coral reefs, increasing acidification and a global glob of plastic floating around in the Pacific the size of Texas, etc etc.), food supplies in jeopardy (massive top soil loss, pollinating insects in rapid decline and unprecedented fires, floods, droughts and storms, etc. etc.) and with 8 billion people fighting for dwindling resources... its our civilization stupid. I will support a boycott of imported goods and economic sanctions against China and India if they don't do their part to conserve Earth. We stand to loose all order in civilization if we do not marshal a global response to this existential crisis.
Okay, but what about those Chiefs (I like them too)? If Congress does not take drastic action to lead the world in protecting life on Earth, the Chiefs and everything else may soon be irrelevant.
Republican Candidate for Congress, Clay Chastain
Clay's reference inspires a quick peek at more news on today's march from both sides of the debate . . .
Prez Trump Seyz Unborn Have Never Had 'Stronger Defender'
President Donald Trump called it his "profound honor" on Friday to be the first president to attend the annual anti-abortion gathering in Washington called the March for Life. He used his speech to attack Democrats as embracing "radical and extreme positions" on abortion and praised those attending the event, saying "unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House."
Lady Rights Fight
March for Life President Jeanne Mancini: Women won the right to vote, now we must win the right to life
This year's centennial of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, comes in the middle of a contentious election cycle. In some respects, women have come a long way in the last 100 years. Just four years ago, Hillary Clinton, wearing suffragist white, claimed the Democratic nomination for the highest political office in the land.
Pro-Choice Against Prez Trump
In the midst of Donald Trump's impeachment trial, as Democrats continue to lay out a flawless case demonstrating the president's guilt, Trump is turning to the anti-sex lady-hater brigade to bolster him. That's right: On Friday, Trump will become the first president to show up in person at the annual March for Life.
