Kaine Declines Request to Serve As GOP Chair 

Kaine Is Called to Serve Elsewhere 

Reverend Anderson Kaine (R-IL-20) has declined both private and public requests to serve as the chairman of the Republican National Committee from multiple Republican House members. The Reverend, just elected to his second term to Congress, has been a leader among Evangelicals since his election, and is seen as a rising star of the Republican Party. He released a statement explaining his decision. 

 

"I chose to decline the nominations from my House colleagues to serve as chairman of the Republican Party, because that job does not help me serve the people of Illinois nor the American People. I was not called to serve in Congress simply to find new ways to divide the American People for electoral gain. My primary goal is not to serve as a Republican, but as an American. And we Americans are a united people," Kaine said in a statement. "I will continue to work to serve as best as I can to help revive the moral authority of this great country, as God has called me to do much more. And I trust my Republican colleagues have select a strong chairman for the party."

Kaine Calls for Select Ethics Committee To Oversee King Corruption Concerns

HML King Should Not Choose Democratic Members

 

Reverend Anderson Kaine (R-IL-20) has called for the creation of a House Select Committee on Ethics to handle the concerns that the King family has broken the law in appointing family to leadership posts within the Democratic Caucus. The current House committee with jurisdiction is the ASJAF Committee, which is chaired by none other than Reggie King (D-CA), the person whose appointment is what is under investigation. Despite Chairman King's correct choice to step aside for the hearing, the committee is still flooded by several conflicts of interest, says the Reverend. 

 

"The Democrats on that committee are hand-selected by the Democratic Leader being investigated. Even Republicans on the committee will need to cozy up to Chairman King if they want their legislation considered. Neither party is free from conflicts of interest, and we can't have an impartial ethics investigation while the people conducting the investigation are beholden to the people they are investigating," Reverend Kaine said. "We need a Select Committee on Ethics to investigate this, and other corruption charges. And so long as this issue is before the committee, the House Majority Leader should have another Democrat in leadership choose their party's members on such a committee." 

 

Reverend Kaine has campaigned extensively on eliminating corruption in Washington from both sides of the aisle, and is considered a leader on good government within the Republican Caucus. In prior press events, he has called for greater House oversight into the Iran-Contra Affair that broke last November on the eve of the election, believing that fully investigating the White House and Defense apparatus is necessary.

Kaine Concerned with Tower Commission Report 

Repeats His Call for the Select Ethics Committee to Hold Investigation

 

Reverend Anderson Kaine (IL-20) has expressed deep concern with the Reagan Administrations failings in the Iran-Contra Affair, in which the White House is rumored to be involved with illegal sale of firearms to Iran during their war with Iraq. The Iranian regime had previously taken fifty-two Americans hostage and had tortured them during a 444 day crisis. 

 

"The Tower Commission Report has shown that a systemic failure of foreign policy elites within the Reagan Administration has led to a scandal of illegal sales to terrorists in blatant disregard for US Law. The terrorist regime in Iran has already named America as its enemies, and arming them is an appalling attempt by some factions within the Reagan White House to mislead the President for the sake of stirring unrest and being anti-life for the sake of power," Rev. Kaine said. "Allowing the enemies of America to wield our nation's power against us is a mistake that we must work to stop and reverse." 

 

"When I called for an ethics committee, I cited this concern as a possible issue. I have not wavered on this issue. We need a House investigation and the Select Committee is exactly who should do so." 

 

Reverend Kaine has been a consistent voice for moral leadership in Washington since his election to the House two years ago.

Rev. Kaine Speaks Against AIDS Slush Fund

Defends Christian Values in HELP Committee 

Reverend Anderson Kaine (IL-20) spoke vehemently against the AIDS Prevention and Information Act of 1987. The bill would provide nearly $1.4 Billion annually to HHS to teach children about sex and use tax dollars to test addicts and homosexuals for AIDS.  

 

"This law would be a fundamental violation of the US principles of rule of law, of Christian values, and of the inherent rights of parents to teach their children. Creating a billion dollar slush fund to override parental rights to teach, to take money away from hardworking Americans to test people for a disease we know how to prevent, is an appalling misuse of government funds. It's simple. Don't do anything your grandma wouldn't do, and that includes promiscuity and illegal drugs," Reverend Anderson said to the media in Washington. "This is not a matter of opinion, it is a matter of faith. And millions of American Christians agree." 

 

Reverend Anderson has served as a leader and pastor within his church since he was 23 years old, and is known as one of the foremost religious leaders in Washington.

Rev. Kaine and Rep. Seymour Make AIDS Compromise

Protects American Values While Addressing the Crisis 

In a stroke of bipartisanship, Reverend Anderson Kaine (R-IL) and Rep. Douglas Seymour (D-SC) have met and come to an agreement to correct the misguided and faulty AIDS Prevention and Information Act of 1987. The compromise drops spending on the proposal by over 90%, and eliminates components of sex education and testing procedures that were out of place with American values. 

 

"I am glad to see cooler, more moderate heads prevail in this debate. Researchers are on the verge of the first anti-retrovirals to help combat AIDS, and a medical breakthrough may be around the corner to put to bed this concern. We can solve our problems and retain our moral foundations, without promoting immoral lifestyle choices that lead to these diseases, and that starts with teaching our children a lifestyle that keeps them clear of AIDS. I thank Representative Seymour for his strength and courage, and I am happy to stand by our work today," Reverend Kaine said.  

 

The two Representatives spoke privately about the possibility of a compromise shortly after Reverend Kaine's impassioned defense of American values. Kaine credits Rep. Seymour with the strong values needed to step across the aisle and correct the legislation.

Rev. Anderson Kaine Announces Candidacy for the Presidency

 

In downtown Springfield, at the steps of the Illinois State Capital and standing paces away from the statue of Abraham Lincoln that reminds all Americans of the last full measure of devotion our Greatest President gave to the cause of a free America, Reverend Anderson Kaine (R-IL) gave a speech announcing his candidacy to the Presidency of the United States of America. Below is the full text of the speech. 

 

Quote

Hello! Thank you!

 

Just three short years ago, I was called by God to come serve the people of this great nation in Washington. And I did. Over these last few years, we’ve helped bring God back to Washington. I’ve fought for lower taxes and a better economy, to preserve life with AIDS research and strike back at the abortion cabal, to promote our values and to defend America’s Middle Class. But there is a lot more work to do. Our nation is still consumed by a deep corruption that infuses itself into our politics, as Washington remains ignorant of the needs of the people who live here.

 

My story starts like a lot of us. I was born to a father gone to war, fighting the Nazis in Europe. My mother raised us with the help of family, and she ended up needing that help… My father never made it home. But that sacrifice only starts my journey. When my mother was working, my brother and I didn’t walk home from school, but to church. Our church, our community, was central to who we were. And it made convinced me to dedicate my life to serving God. And I took up the ministry to let my community learn of God’s love.

 

But God had greater plans for me still. Fifteen years after I dedicated my life to Him, He called me to serve another… You. I asked for your faith, as he asked of me, and you granted it. You sent me to Congress, and I am truly humbled by that. I was sent with a reason: to defend the rights of the unborn, to fight for freedom and democracy, to defend each and every working American. But I see now how that was only the beginning.

 

In Washington, I have been confronted by a horrific picture, of corruption and insider deal-making that leaves the thoughts of constituents at the wayside. And I have taken the driver’s seat in attempts to fix it, leading among both parties in the Ethics committee. And I hope for us to continue that work, but it is only a start.

 

Just a few blocks from here, our nation’s greatest leader spoke on a House Divided. In that speech, President Lincoln condemned the ‘care-not’ thoughts of his fellow politicians towards the moral rot of slavery within our nation. And those words echo true today. This nation faces another moment, a time when Washington is consumed by the ‘care-not’ attitude for the plights of Americans who look on helplessly at a corrupt and broken Washington.

 

I say no longer. No longer should our nation see its beliefs and needs set aside. Our nation must come together, must join Lincoln’s call to be united, to make our nation better.

 

I’ve spoken to my family over this. I’ve prayed over this. And I believe it is time we chose a more moral America. I know that the American People share these values, of the power of us all, of the importance of a strong, safe, and moral America… I Have Faith in America. And that faith has led me here, to announce my candidacy for the Presidency of the United States!

 

I had never envisioned myself as someone to run for any office, let alone seek the highest title in the land. But I have served God, and I will always have the greatest title I could ever ask for: Reverend. I do not seek this office for personal glory, but because I truly believe of our nation’s desperate need. And it is not my seeking the presidency, but *our* seeking it, that I hope to begin here today.

 

Seeking the Presidency to revive our moral greatness, to bring back the great authority of our nation as the moral leader of the world, and to do so through a renewed focus on you. We must remember that the success of the American Worker is the success of the American Way! We must ensure that our children have an opportunity to succeed, creating an era we cannot possibly imagine! We must remember our national foundations in Judeo-Christian principles! We must fight for a moral world that follows our values of Democracy and Freedom! We must always stand up to evil and autocracy around the world! We must continue these recent traditions, that, regardless of party, we are all Americans!

 

And more than anything, we must “Have Faith in America”!

 

With your help, with your support, we are going to return America to greatness! We are going to show that the American people know what is best, not Washington insiders! We are going to return America to its former glory by making *you* a priority once more!

 

Thank you for your support! Thank you, and God Bless these United States!

Kaine Defends Manufacturing Workers, Votes Against "Real Right to Work Act" 
Bill Would Lead to Thousands of Lost Jobs

 

Today, Rev. Anderson Kaine voted against the Real Right to Work Act, a bill designed to force plant closures across the country. The bill would require manufacturing plants to give 60 days notice of any closure, thereby creating an incentive for premature closures for plants having temporary troubles. By forcing the notice, plants who are experiencing economic concerns would be encouraged to announce closure immediately, for fear of causing significant financial loss that may force cuts in other facilities in other communities. The same businesses in the current climate would be allowed to weather the storm of fluctuating business and save American jobs. 

"I am disappointed in this legislation. My Democratic colleagues are clearly trying to find ways to support manufacturing in America, and that is worth recognizing. I applaud them for the effort, but the answer to the labor concerns in this country is smart government, and this legislation simply isn't going to work," Rev. Kaine said. "The hardworking men and women who make their living in American Manufacturing need someone who works for them. I hope we can do better by them in the future, and that starts with smart policy that stops plant closures. Not this." 

Rev. Kaine has one of the most pro-labor records in Congress, and continues that trend today. His staunch support for the American worker helped lift him in the Republican Party primary, and are a major source for his most ardent supporters in the coming election. He has served a strong labor district in Washington since 1985.
