Capitol Hill Brief — Stellar Sessions

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, News and Events | No Comments

 

Sen. Jeff Sessions was stellar in his hearings last week to be the next Attorney General of the United States. The objections to his nomination have now been proven to be motivated by vicious partisan politics.

What was most shameful of all was to see his beautiful, diverse family standing behind him at the hearings, while some Democratic senators launched numerous unsubstantiated attacks aimed at scoring political points for future battles.

Several news stories have confirmed that they knew Sen. Sessions would be confirmed but wanted to make a big fuss about it to better position themselves for the upcoming Supreme Court fight. Shame on them! All Americans should condemn this type of abuse of power.

Capitol Hill Brief — A Precursor of Things to Come

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, News and Events | No Comments

 

The unjust attacks against Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination to be the Attorney General are just the precursor of things to come from the left.

They seek to make Sen. Sessions an example of the smear campaign they want to deploy against the next nomination to the Supreme Court.

Remember that the replacement of Justice Scalia has not been selected yet. Thanks to the leadership of Majority Leader McConnell, the American people had a chance to consider the type of justice they want as they voted for president.

They spoke loud and clear that they wanted someone in the mold of Justice Scalia. But the left is furious. And what we saw with Sessions was just the beginning.

We must be ready to fight.

Capitol Hill Brief — What Women Want

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, News and Events | No Comments

 

What do women want in the next attorney general?  The same thing everyone else wants.  Someone we can trust with our family’s security.  Someone that will put our children first, and who will not play politics with their well-being.

That is exactly what we have in Sen. Jeff Sessions.

Concerned Women for America has worked with Sen. Sessions on many issues, from the sanctity of life to prison and sentencing reform to judicial nominations to violence against women.  Through it all, he has always shown himself to be a man of knowledge, experience, and integrity.

Above all, Sen. Sessions is someone who will not be intimidate or manipulated by the left.  Exactly what we need in the next attorney general.

Capitol Hill Brief — Support: Hearing Day 2

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

We’ve heard some powerful testimony from all over the country in support of Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next Attorney General of the United States.

Here is what a considerable group of state attorneys general said in a letter before the Senate Judiciary Committee:

The challenges we face often cross state lines, and it is imperative that we have as our nation’s chief law enforcement officer someone who has the experience, the knowledge, and the principles to work with us to meet those challenges. No one is more qualified to fill that role than Sen. Sessions.

Wow! A powerful statement coming from law enforcement officers at the local level.  No one is more qualified than Jeff Sessions.  We agree.

Capitol Hill Brief — Prayer for Hearings: Day 1

By | Blog, Confidential Briefing | No Comments

 

As you’ve heard from me for the last few days, the hearings for the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next attorney general of the United States start today.

Would you join me in prayer for his nomination?

There are powerful political forces investing considerable resources to smear his character.   We’ve talked about Sen. Sessions’ great credentials as an attorney and public servant, but on a personal note, he is also a fellow believer in Christ.

He has served as a lay leader and Sunday School teacher at his family’s church in Mobile, Alabama, for many years and has not shied away from his faith while serving here in Washington, D.C.

Pray with me that justice will prevail.

Capitol Hill Brief — Exactly What We Need

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, News and Events | No Comments

 

As the head of Concerned Women for America, reporters usually ask me what our women think about different topics.  And when it comes to the U.S. Attorney General nomination, nothing comes even close to public safety.

That’s why President Trump’s nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions brings so much hope to the women I represent.  Here is a man who is clear and resolute on protecting the American people.

During his time in the Senate Senator Sessions has put substantial energy towards promoting law and order, and empowering law enforcement officers to fight injustice wherever it is found.  He is exactly what we need at this point in our history.  He must be confirmed.

Capitol Hill Brief — Good on VAWA

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

The left loves gender politics.  Concerned Women for America, as the largest public policy organization for women in the country, is always at the center of their tirades because we don’t fit their little molds.

Now they are criticizing Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination as Attorney General because he did not support something called the “Violence Against Women Act.”

But just because a bill says “women” on its title doesn’t mean it’s good.  CWA also opposed the bill for many reasons, including that the taxpayer dollars were being used to benefit leftist organizations, instead of being spent on real women’s needs at the state level.

So, count Sen. Sessions’ vote against the bill a plus! It shows great judgment on his part.

Capitol Hill Brief — Good for All

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Fairness, impartiality, equal justice under the law, that’s what we need from the next Attorney General.  That’s what we will get with Sen. Jeff Sessions.

The previous administration wanted to show favoritism for their preferred causes, giving birth to unequal justice.  And we have seen the fruits of their misguided policies, and the nation has become increasingly divided.

It’s time for a change.

Sen. Sessions has worked tirelessly in the senate to bring law and order into our cities, leading bi-partisan efforts for reform.  “The Crack Cocaine-Fair Sentencing Act of 2010,” and the “Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003,” are just a couple of examples.

He must be confirmed.

Funding for Select Investigative Panel Continues

By | Blog, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

The House recently voted 234-181 to continue funding the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, a wonderful victory for those who wish to expose the corrupt industry of abortion and enforce current law stating that aborted baby parts should not be sold for profit.

The panel’s work has already revealed potential violations of this law that it has referred to departments and states for further investigation and potential prosecution.

The violations of law are numerous:

  • The University of New Mexico violated state law by accepting tissue from a late-term abortion provider.
  • StemExpress illegally profited off aborted baby remains.
  • StemExpress and abortion clinics violated HIPPA patient privacy rights.
  • An Arkansas abortion clinic sold tissue to StemExpress for profit.
  • A college in Ohio violated state law by trafficking aborted baby parts.
  • DV Biologics broke the law in trafficking aborted baby remains for profit and also violated sales tax law.
  • Planned Parenthood of Gulf Coast sold baby parts for profit to the University of Texas.
  • Advanced Bioscience Resources profited from selling baby parts to colleges.
  • A Florida Women’s Center violated state and federal law by profiting from aborted baby remains through its work with StemExpress.

The panel has already been successful in taking a hard look at the industry of fetal tissue trafficking and the privacy and ethical concerns therein.  The panel is also investigating the medical procedures used in an abortion for baby parts, which will most likely mean researching whether these procedures have been illegally or dangerously altered to obtain better specimens, including the use of partial-birth abortions.  Additional official tasks of the panel include determining what happens with federal funding of abortion providers and what happens to medical care for born-alive infants.  The panel is prepared to recommend changes in laws and regulations.

Since the investigation has to cover all this – spanning the issues of profit, funding, medical procedures, privacy violations, and born-alive babies – it was imperative that the panel’s funding be extended – and it has been.

But soon our nation should go further and deeper.

Experimenting with aborted baby parts – precisely because they are human parts – is not ethical at all, profit aside.  Scientific research should soon seek discovery alternatives that don’t request baby parts for experiments.

The truth is the abortion industry will always do unethical things – because abortion itself will always be unethical.  The exposition of the practice of fetal tissue procurement reveals the humanity of the unborn and the tragedy of all abortions.

Capitol Hill Brief — On Civil Rights

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Sen. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General for the United States would be a welcomed return to the rule of law at the U.S. Department of Justice.  He’s made the rule of law the entire focus of his career and his qualifications are exemplary.

The racial innuendo from the left is in full force, but Sen. Sessions’ record speaks louder than all the media spin.  As Dr. Alveda King, niece of the great civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., said, “Throwing the race card against someone who prosecuted the KKK does not make sense.”

And that’s exactly what Sen. Sessions did as Attorney General in Alabama, along with many other efforts to support civil rights.  He must be confirmed.
