Capitol Hill Brief — Presidents Day

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

Today, as we celebrate the birth of “The Father of our Country,” President George Washington, I can’t help but wonder what he’d think of America today. Would he be proud of what we’ve become, or would he be shocked by the violence and rhetoric being spewed by many over the election or any number of issues? How would he handle what’s happening?

I know what he would do. He would bow his head and pray. Because that’s who George Washington was. He was a man of prayer.

Maybe today, as we face this rough patch in our nation’s history, we should take a page from Washington’s playbook. Perhaps we should pray to our Father in Heaven. Would you join me today?


Today, on President’s Day, let’s consider the progress President Trump and our conservative lawmakers have made and look toward the future. Download our “First 100 Days Update” for more information.

Capitol Hill Brief — Gorsuch on the Law

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Here is Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s choice to take over the seat held by the late, great Justice Antonin Scalia at the Supreme Court:

[AUDIO CLIP] Judge Neil Gorsuch: I respect, too, the fact that in our legal order it is for Congress, and not the courts, to write new laws. It is the role of judges to apply, not alter, the work of the people’s representatives. … A judge who likes every outcome he reaches is very likely a bad judge … stretching for results he prefers, rather than those the law demands.

That’s why we feel confident in supporting Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.  These comments are not something he is saying for convenience now.  He has a record of judicial decisions that match this wise commitment to the law.

Capitol Hill Brief — Supreme Riddle

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Here’s a riddle: What is one of nine, rules over the most important aspects of our lives, and can have an impact for up to 30-plus years?  Do you know?  That’s right, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

From the sanctity of human life, to obscenity, to freedom of speech, to marriage and property and religious freedom, among many other things.  Like it or not, the Supreme Court exerts incredible power over the way we conduct our lives.

That is why the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch is so important for us. The left knows this, which is why they are doing everything they can to stop him. You and I must engage to counter them.

Capitol Hill Brief — And Now the Supreme Court

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Hot off the battle to confirm Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Concerned Women for America is gearing up for what promises to be an even bigger fight: the appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next Justice of the Supreme Court.

If you’re wondering what it is about Judge Gorsuch that could warrant such a fight, the answer is “nothing at all.”

Judge Gorsuch’s record is exceptional.  He promises to stick by the Constitution and laws as written. But facts do not matter, for the liberal smear campaign has started and taken hold by left.  They know a conservative judge, like Gorsuch, will not legislate from the bench to promote their policies, and that is enough for them.

Capitol Hill Brief — You Made a Difference!

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Well, we can all celebrate now!  Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama is the 84th Attorney General of the United States.  After all the liberal hysteria and the malicious, unwarranted attacks on his character, the opposition has failed miserably.  He was confirmed last week by a bipartisan vote of 52 to 47.

We have an attorney general now that is committed to the rule of law and justice and has promise us to get the politics out of the Department of Justice.

This didn’t happen by accident, as you know.  If you’re a member of Concerned Women for America, you’ve been engaged in by speaking truth in the Senate and the culture, throughout the debate.  So, thank you!

Capitol Hill Brief — Gorsuch on Hobby Lobby

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Before the Supreme Court ever heard the Hobby Lobby case, Judge Neil Gorsuch, who’s being nominated to the Supreme Court, heard it as a judge at the 10th Circuit.  Here’s what he wrote:

In many ways this case is the tale of two statutes. The [Affordable Care Act] compels the Greens to act. [The Religious Freedom Restoration Act] says they need not. We are asked to decide which legislative direction controls. The tie-breaker is found not in our own opinions about good policy but in the laws Congress enacted. Congress structured RFRA to override other legal mandates, including its own statutes, if and when they encroach on religious liberty. (Emphasis added.)

That’s why Judge Gorsuch is worthy of our trust.

Capitol Hill Brief — Gorsuch on Life

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Pro-life is not simply anti-abortion, despite what the media says.

Abortion is a big part of the fight, thanks to Roe v. Wade, but the issue of euthanasia, for example, is something that has taken a hold of the mind of many people in our nation, and we are doing everything in our power to stand against it, just as strongly as we stand against abortion.

That is why it is so encouraging to learn that Judge Gorsuch, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, wrote an entire book on the issue of euthanasia, concluding “that all human beings are intrinsically valuable and the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong.” Now that, my friend, is pro-life.

Capitol Hill Brief — Meeting President Trump

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Last week, the day after President Trump’s announcement of Judge Neil Gorsuch as his choice for the Supreme Court, I was blessed to meet President Trump at the White House.  I was able to congratulate him personally, on your behalf, and thank him for keeping his promise to us that he would nominate someone in the mold of Justice Scalia.

I assured him that we would support Judge Gorsuch and do everything in our power to ensure a fair confirmation process.

That’s right, senators are the ones considering the nomination, but guess what? They are our representatives. Sometimes we fail to get a fair process because too many of us remain silent. Not this time. Join CWA, and together we will make a difference!

Capitol Hill Brief — Get to Know Judge Gorsuch

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Here’s a bit on President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.

His academic credentials are second to none: B.A. from Columbia UniversityHarvard Law School, and if that isn’t enough, he has a Ph.D. in law from University College at Oxford University (on a Marshall Scholarship — that’s a big deal).  Bottom line, this is a unique intellect that we’re talking about.

His career is just as impressive.  He clerked under three judges, including two Supreme Court justices, was a successful associate, then partner at a distinguished law firm, had a distinguished career at the Department of Justice and, of course, was appointed to the Tenth Circuit with bipartisan support.  He should be confirmed swiftly.
