BECKER CONDEMNS ATTACK ON US CONSULATE IN LIBYA, EGYPT, MURDERS OF AMERICAN AMBASSADOR STEVENS AND STATE DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL
Legislator Fran Becker, Republican candidate for Congress in New York’s Fourth Congressional District, issued the following statement this morning after no comment or statement was issued by 16-year incumbent Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy:
“The outrageous and cowardly attacks on America overseas yesterday – the 11th Anniversary of September 11 – were perpetrated by protesters with one mission: to harm the United States. Not only do I condemn the attacks, but I ask that we all stand together as Americans to oppose these senseless and unexplainable attacks upon America.
“Media reports the protestors and cold-blooded murders were angry over a film that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Mohammad. When protestors shred the American flag on our nation’s sovereign property, its Embassy, overseas and replace it with the flag of another, it’s a dangerously disturbing. But when foreigners take to the street to murder State Department personnel – Americans abroad in the service of our nation – with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades, something is deeply wrong and misguided.
“In the face of tragedy, we must come together as Americans. Not only must we mourn the loss of fine public servants in the line of duty, but we must also reevaluate President Obama’s Middle Eastern foreign policy. It’s sad and unfortunate that it took this horrific terrorist act against American citizens for that to happen.”
For years people have complained to me about our current representative in Washington D.C., Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy. One person said to me recently, “Watch this, she will fly in to campaign for a week before Election Day and afterwards we won’t see her again for two years.” When I ran against Carolyn McCarthy two years ago in 2010, this is exactly what she did. As I often stated during the campaign at the time, Carolyn McCarthy is completely out of touch with her district—as is evidenced in part by her ultra liberal votes for Obamacare and the wasteful trillion dollar stimulus package — and this is the reason why: To best represent the people you serve, I believe you have to be present with them in the district so you can listen, know and understand their concerns and their hopes for the future and those they hold for their families and our country. Simply put, Carolyn McCarthy is never here to do that, so she can’t really know and that is why she votes the way she does. It should be obvious to everyone by now that Carolyn McCarthy has very little concern for us as illustrated by her total absence from the district which has been going on for years and years now. During my tenure in representing Valley Stream, Lynbrook, Malverne, East Rockaway and Rockville Centre in the Nassau County Legislature I have seen her perhaps six times. READ THE REST HERE
Carolyn McCarthy voted against the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA) which would have penalized Doctors who abort babies based on their gender.
The bill was introduced in the House after a video produced by Live Action earlier in the week was released that showed Planned Parenthood personnel assisting a mother in her efforts to obtain an abortion after her child’s sex is determined to be a girl not the desired boy. The employee also counseled the mother in how to defraud Medicaid in the process.
Gender selective abortion disproportionately affects girl babies and was once believed to be only a problem in third world countries and China. Live Action’s video demonstrated that this is also a problem in the United States.
Mrs. McCarthy is a known radical on the abortion issue and voted against the ban on the brutal practice of partial birth abortion. She also consistently votes against parental consent laws and is to the left of most of her constituents on this issue.
“Her inability to vote to protect infant girls demonstrates that Mrs. McCarthy is an active soldier in the Democrats’ real war on women, ” said her opponent Fran Becker, ” Mrs. McCarthy panders to the pro-abortion groups that fund her campaign and it is at the expense of innocent lives.”
