Capitol Hill Brief — Your Voice In Washington

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Concerned Women for America is your voice in our nation’s capital.  Last week, your support of the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was seen and heard loud and clear at the capitol.

About a hundred of our Young Women for America members and state leaders gathered there to ask senators to stop playing politics with this important nomination and confirm Judge Gorsuch.

Senators, legislative staffers, and even White House officials came by and took notice of effort.

CWA was also inside the hearing room where I was able to spend some time personally and take the same message to lawmakers and influencers from both sides of the aisle.  Join CWA today and be part of something great.


Our next Supreme Court justice will shape America’s future for generations to come. Judge Neil Gorsuch will uphold conservative, constitutional values.

Capitol Hill Brief — Secret Legislators

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Judge Neil Gorsuch spoke these wise words during his confirmation hearing before the Senate last week.

[Audio Clip] Judge Neil Gorsuch: If judges were just secret legislators, declaring not what the law is, but what they would like it to be, the very idea of a government by the people and for the people would be at risk. And those who came before the court would live in fear, never sure exactly what the law requires of them, except for the judge’s will.

With Gorsuch on the bench, we wouldn’t have to live in that fear that he would act like a secret legislator, but we could instead be confident as Americans in the role of the judiciary in our governmental system.  CWA urges the Senate to confirm Judge Gorsuch.

Capitol Hill Brief — A Gavel, Not a Rubber Stamp

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

During His confirmation hearings, Judge Neil Gorsuch commented on his role as a judge by saying “They gave me a gavel, not a rubber stamp.” And that, “Nobody is above the law,” no matter what their social status.

Members of both parties have nothing to fear from a judge like that — one who puts the law above partisan politics. He said his style of judging would be to consider “the law and the facts of each particular case.”

Concerned Women for America has been encouraging senators of both parties to realize that voting to confirm Gorsuch makes sense — both politically and ideologically.  Gorsuch stands for the preservation of the American order and would make a great addition to our highest court.

Capitol Hill Brief — Inappropriate Ginsburg

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Here’s something we won’t hear from Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court: more political commentary, like the continuously inappropriate comments of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In her latest, she tells the BBC that, “A great man once said that the true symbol of the United States … is the pendulum, and when the pendulum swings too far in one direction, it will swing back.”

She said that because she’s not happy with President Donald Trump and now she wants the international community to know that he will not be in power forever.

How shameful from a sitting Supreme Court Justice.  We should be thankful Neil Gorsuch is not set to follow in her footsteps.

Capitol Hill Brief — CWA is Your Voice Around the Nation

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Concerned Women for America is your voice around the nation on issues you care about.  Recently, we have been speaking on behalf of Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.  Here is CWA’s Communications Coordinator Janae Stracke at a recent town hall meeting:

[AUDIO CLIP] Janae Stracke: It isn’t about the issues, which is what a lot of the people are talking about. The point is that he will rule on the law and not be creating legislation. … He was confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court without opposition, and I find it hard to believe that a judge who was appointed without opposition before would have a hard time now.

Your support is what makes this possible, so I want to thank you!

Concerned Women for America of Maine state director Penny Morrell stood up for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court at a recent town hall meeting hosted by Sen. King.  Here is what she said:

[AUDIO CLIP] Penny Morrell: Thank you, Senator King. My name is Penny Morrell. I’m state director for Concerned Women for America of Maine. Thank you for having this forum tonight. I would urge you to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court because he is a strict constitutionalist. And it is not the job of the Supreme Court to make law; it is the job of the Supreme Court to be sure that any law is subject to the constitution as originally written.

Capitol Hill Brief — Bill O’Reilly and a Day without Women

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

The so-called “day without women” was a poor representation of what womanhood is all about.  I was glad to be your voice in a variety of national media shows for the past week to express our fundamental disagreement with this form of radical feminism.  Here is a clip from my appearance on Bill O’Reilly on Fox News:

[Audio Clip] Penny Nance: This message is so wrong; it should be the opposite. You don’t make the board room by staying home and pouting. We have told women, “Go to work and kill it today. That is how you become CEO.”

[Audio Clip] Bill O’Reilly: Alright. Are you disenchanted with America, because more women aren’t leading in certain industries?

[Audio Clip] Penny Nance: No. We have more opportunity than anywhere in the world.

[Audio Clip] Bill O’Reilly: Alright, so you’re optimistic.

[Audio Clip] Penny Nance: Very optimistic.

Capitol Hill Brief — Good News on Transgender Bathrooms Issue

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Here’s a headline you don’t hear every day: “The Supreme Court did the right thing.”

After the Trump Administration wisely rescinded President Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate, the U.S. Supreme Court has vacated and remanded a case dealing with the issue back to the lower court.

That’s great news because it means that a lower court’s erroneous ruling forcing a Virginia school to open restrooms beyond biological sex is no longer valid and no school is bound by it.

Let us pray the lower court does the right thing now and protects the rights and safety of all students — not just the few that our culture deems worthy.  Our young women deserve no less.

Capitol Hill Brief — The Democrats’ Conundrum

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

The Democrats’ conundrum when it comes to the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was put succinctly by one of his home-state papers, The Colorado Springs Gazette, which joined the Denver Post in urging Democratic Senator Michael Bennet to support the well-qualified nominee.  The paper’s editorial board wrote this:

If Bennet wants to show more unwavering loyalty to the Democratic Party, he will do as requested by minority leadership. If he wants to do right by Colorado, he will make Gorsuch the only Coloradan on the Supreme Court since Byron “Whizzer” White.

That’s the question facing every Democrat.  Will they do right by the American people and support Judge Gorsuch, or will they put party loyalty above their constituents?

Capitol Hill Brief — Not a Lot of Time

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

The confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice is a long process.  The nominee’s record must be studied and any concerns explored.  But time flies by and, believe it or not, we do not have a lot of time to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has confirmed that he plans to have Judge Neil Gorsuch confirmed by Easter, probably on April 10th.  Hearings, therefore, might come around the week of March 20th.

Your senator needs to hear from you today!  Please call today and tell them they should support the nomination of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Tell them that in a time of great political division, Gorsuch represents a unifying opportunity that would be great for our country.
