Brannon: An extremist lies about Planned Parenthood "secret plan"

Greg Brannon, Rand Paul's fav running in the primary for the GOP nomination in the NC Senate race, has said on the campaign trail that Planned Parenthood has a secret plan to legalize the murder of newborns as old as three months.

Brannon operates a network of pregnancy "crisis centers" here in NC and is a licensed obstetrician.

If you thought the current crop of right-wingers were crazy, just consider what's at stake with the new and improved conservative extremists coming down the pike in the next couple of election cycles.

These people are deluded and dangerous.


Tillis is a RWNJ

But his opponents just might be even crazier.


"I will have a priority on building relationships with the minority caucus. I want to put substance behind those campaign speeches." -- Thom Tillis, Nov. 5, 2014


Brannon is tied with Tillis, according to PPP polls. To him, an OB-GYN, women are little girls who don't understand their bodies.

That alone tells me how I'll be voting.

On other issues: He moved to NC because he liked Jesse Helms and has promised to emulate Helms, if elected. He opposes public education,as it 'dehumanizes' children. He believes in nullification and says he is eager to join Sens. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz in the "wacko bird caucus."

Reading online reviews of him as a physician (He takes his religious beliefs into the examining room. Patients completely love him or completely dislike him) may provide some insight into his approach to life, and the needs of women. I recommend you read some.

He runs a pro-life OB-GYN practice—meaning he doesn't advise women on contraception or refer for abortions. He said patients should be informed that abortion is linked to breast cancer.( The American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have all dismissed the notion that there is a link between breast cancer and abortion.)

Brannon serves as the medical director for Hand of Hope, a nonprofit that operates several North Carolina crisis pregnancy centers. At a recent Hand of Hope fundraiser, Brannon described the centers' clients as "little girls [who] don't understand what's going on to their bodies." He said he often presses these "little girls" to marry their boyfriends: "When I see little girls that come here, boyfriends that do show up are my favorites. Then I can whoop on them with love. How many people have we got married over the last 20 years just by riding that boy's rear end?

Will faux-dems move to una or rep to vote in the R primary?

My now elderly parents have always been Dems. The reasoning back in the 80s (when I inquired) was that the real election was the Dem primary. And that did hold true until relatively recently. Now it's habit, I suppose. Maybe actually having a race in the R primary will force the faux NC Dems - many seniors - to move out of the Dem primaries. My parents were quite proud of their own little "operation chaos" voting back in the day.

I'm still amazed at how many candidates appearing *on my NC ballot* run for a local office as a member of one major party and then run again in the next election as a candidate from the other party. And there is no major change of heart or mind mentioned in the switch. Some have even switched back in a subsequent election. (They rarely win - of course)

Peoples is weird!

But to drag this back to Tillis v Brannon, I'm not sure who to pull for.
Do I pull for Brannon as the least electable or Tillis as the least insane? I'll not be changing my registration so my operation chaos will not have a quantifiable effect in the R primary.
