“Endorsement of Wendy Davis Triggers National Boycott of Girl Scout Cookies
by Austin Ruse
January 29, 2014

A part of every Thin Mint and Do-Si-Do, every Samoa and Savannah Smile goes to support abortion advocacy. So say John Pisciotta, who runs a tiny pro-life organization in Waco, Texas, and a dozen national pro-life organizations he has convinced to join him in a national boycott of Girl Scout cookies that will be announced in Texas tomorrow (I stopped buying Girl Scout cookies a number of years ago! Their involvement in the MURDER/abortion industry is not new!—my addition).

A few weeks ago, the Girl Scouts designated Wendy Davis as an ‘incredible woman’ who deserved to be on the list of 2013 ‘Women of the Year.’ Only a month earlier, the organization promoted Kathleen Sebelius as a woman of ‘courage’ on its Facebook page.

Davis is not known for much more than exaggerating her life story and for her filibuster of a pro-life bill in the Texas legislature (I know of nothing else!—my addition). Her critics point out that the bill she filibustered was one that limited abortions after viability (In their minds, that is irrelevant. MURDER can happen at any time as long as the baby is in the womb! Occasionally, after leaving the womb!—my addition).

Kathleen Sebelius has been the bête noir of the pro-life movement for her role in Obamacare and mandating abortion coverage even for religious entities, what some Catholic bishops have called the largest expansion of abortion in the country since Roe v. Wade.

All this was too much for Pisciotta, who will ask families across America not to participate in the Girl Scouts’ fundraising through cookie sales.

Pisciotta told Breitbart News, ‘The Girl Scouts were once a truly amazing organization, but it has been taken over by ideologues of the left (Indeed, it has! Just as the teacher unions have! And yet they are not in the majority, I dont think in either!—my addition) and regular folks just will not stand for it. Anyone who cares about this ought to go to and find out why.’

Pisciotta says people should look closely at where the money goes from these sales. The Girl Scouts claims that 100% of cookie revenue stays with the regional councils, with a portion going to the local troop, and that the national office receives no revenue from cookie sales. However, Girl Scouts USA receives millions in licensing fees for every box sold, money that contributes substantially to its enormous budget.

Ann Saladin, who runs, points out that even the regional councils, and therefore much of the cookie money, are directly implicated in abortion advocacy. Her website lists all the local councils with abortion troubles.

The Girl Scouts also claims that no cookie money goes to any other group. However, Girl Scouts USA makes an annual donation of $1.5 million to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, a group on record as supporting reproductive health and rights for its members (And is does not matter if the specific money from the cookies go to it. Cookie money frees up other money! It is like the government handouts to Planned MURDERHOOD! It may not go directly for the MURDER of unborn babies but it frees up money that does and it increases Planned MURDERHOODS bottom line!—my addition) .

There is a quixotic aspect to Pisciotta’s fight. Pro-Life Waco is hardly a match for the Girl Scouts. Guidestar, the online tracker of non-profit organizations, doesn’t even list a tax filing for his organization because his group never raises more than the $50,000 annual minimum that requires tax filings. Pisciotta is a volunteer, as are all the rest who work there.

On the other hand, the national office of the Girl Scouts raised more than $100 million last year. This does not include $700 million in cookie sales. Pisciotta’s group can’t even compete with the Girl Scout Council of San Jacinto, which raised more than $15 million last year.

The Girl Scouts is fighting back against its detractors. Just yesterday, Ann Saladin received a threatening email from a Girl Scout attorney threatening legal action if she persisted in using the Girl Scout logo on ‘We demand that your organization immediately cease using the Girl Scouts® logo on your flyers. We would appreciate receiving your assurances by return mail, email, or fax on or before February 7, 2014 that you will comply with our demand,’ wrote Brian Crawford of the Girl Scouts.

Even so, Pisciotta believes he can have an effect. After all, he’s been here before.

In 2003 Pisciotta ran what started as a local boycott after the local Girl Scout Council sponsored a controversial conference with Planned Parenthood called Nobody’s Fool, at which a booklet was offered to young children that included, among other things, a boy masturbating, a drawing of a boy standing at a school chalk board looking at the bulge in his pants, a naked woman straddling a man, and more. The local council also named the CEO of Planned Parenthood-Waco as a Woman of Distinction.

That campaign put Pisciotta and his allies on local and national television and caused Girl Scouts USA CEO Kathy Cloninger to go on the Today Show to try to cauterize the wound. It was on that program, however, that Cloninger admitted that the Girl Scouts works with Planned Parenthood groups around the country, (My use of red—my addition) a statement that has bedeviled the Girl Scouts since then (And that was eleven years ago!—my addition).

After that boycott, a veritable cottage industry of Girl Scout reform and opposition groups has sprung up around the country including,,,,

and even a Facebook page called ‘Make The Girl Scouts Clean Again.’

Since that time, the Girl Scouts has been on a remarkable slide. Its membership is down 7% from 2.8 million members to 2.2 million. It has had to consolidate councils from 312 to 112. From 2007 to 2011, donations dropped 29% from $148 million to $104 million, and a once $150 million in the black pension fund is now $347 million in the red.

The Girl Scouts organization has shown sensitivity to the political and humanitarian concerns of its members. According to the Girl Scout FAQ page, the cocoa used in the cookies is ‘conflict free,’ and no cookie can be made with genetically modified crops. It even promises its cookies are made with ‘corporate sustainability’ and ‘social responsibility’ in mind (It is just that the Girl Scouts partners with the largest organization in America that MURDERS unborn babies, at least, half of whom are female! A minor detail! Right?—my addition).

When it comes to pro-life concerns, however, the Girl Scouts lines up opposite the wishes of millions of former Girl Scout members who have walked away over that issue in recent years (As well they should!—my addition).”

Unfortunately, we have allowed the Left to permeate a good number of organizations that were of benefit to society. We need to be continually vigilant and stop the Left at the beginning instead of only reacting after they have taken control. Do not get me wrong. Better late than never. Better still, is to be vigilance and keep them out of leadership from the beginning! “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts!”

This is my two part suggestion to Tea Party groups, social conservatives, Constitutionalists, and anyone else who wants to save our Republic from the approaching destruction.

1) Run as many conservative candidates in as many Republican primaries as possible.

2) Then, run as many independent and/or third party candidates as possible in as many races as possible where we did not win the primary.

That is why I am working to get the Constitution Party on the ballot in Texas. If we get on the ballot, we will have two Congressional House candidates running and two State candidates running. Getting on the ballot is the first step. Winning elections is the second. Winning elections will grow the Party. The Constitution Party is much more in line with the Tea Party movement than is the Republican Party. And I have been involved with all three!

If elected to Congress, I will not, under any circumstances, vote for present Speaker of the House John Boehner to be Speaker of the House. I call on every Republican primary candidate running in Texas Congressional District 19 to publicly (in writing) make the same pledge. It would not be a bad idea for every Republican candidate running for the House of Representatives to give the same pledge. See my post at on December 16, 2013 entitled “Speaker of the House John Boehner Attacks the Tea Party Again for Being Fiscally Responsible!” 

If I am elected to the House, I will use the Constitution, as written, to do everything in my power to stop judicial tyranny! Will the other candidates pledge the same? I know our present Representative has NOT done everything possible to stop judicial tyranny! Why is that?

Competition is good for the economy and competition is good for the Republican Party!!! Competition keeps Congressmen committed to we the people!!! Primary Republicans who do not support the Constitution as written.
