Capitol Hill Brief — Dems for Gorsuch

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Guess who voted to confirm Judge Gorsuch to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals back in 2006? Big name Democrats like, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton.

And even some serving today like, Chuck Schumer, Patrick Leahy, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Durbin, and Jack Reed.

Actually, he was confirmed unanimously, by a voice vote.  Not a single Democrat expressed any concerns about Judge Gorsuch.

So why the hesitation now?  One word: politics.  The left is still furious about the election results and will do everything in their power to oppose President Trump, no matter how ridiculous their attacks.  And that’s what the attacks on Judge Gorsuch are: ridiculous.

Capitol Hill Brief — Gorsuch on Hobby Lobby

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Supreme Court Nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch weighed in on the Hobby Lobby case as a member of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.  He saw the case as a conflict between two laws — ObamaCare and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  Gorsuch correctly decided Religious Freedom took precedence.  Not because of personal preference, but because the law demands that. The actual religious liberty law said it was meant to supersede other government mandates, and certainly that is confirmed by the First Amendment.

That meant ruling that the owners of the store, Hobby Lobby, should be allowed to practice their religion without government interference. Thus, Gorsuch exhibited the principles of religious freedom and judicial restraint.

Capitol Hill Brief — Gorsuch and the Little Sisters of the Poor

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Judge Neil Gorsuch has a proven track record of protecting one of Concerned Women for America’s core issues: Religious Freedom.

For example, Judge Gorsuch defended the rights of the Little Sisters of the Poor, whose religious freedom was threatened under the Obama Administration’s Contraceptive Mandate. Gorsuch favored the nuns because, as he said, the “issue…has little to do with contraception and a great deal to do with religious liberty.”  He said, “It is not the job of the judiciary to tell people what their religious beliefs are” and that a judiciary trying to do so shouldn’t be tolerated.

Judge Gorsuch’s commitment to both religious freedom and judicial restraint make him the perfect choice for the Supreme Court.  He should be confirmed.

Capitol Hill Brief — Honoring Scalia

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

We just observed the one-year anniversary of the passing Justice Antonin Scalia.  As we consider the nomination of his replacement, Judge Neil Gorsuch, it’s incredibly comforting to hear of his admiration for the great constitutionalist that Scalia truly was.

One of the most moving aspects of this nomination announcement was the recognition of the presence of Justice Scalia’s widow and Judge Gorsuch’s words looking straight at her.

He said:

[Audio Clip] Judge Neil Gorsuch: “Justice Scalia was a lion of the law. Agree or disagree with him, all of his colleagues on the bench shared his wisdom and his humor. And like them, I miss him.”

The good news is that Judge Gorsuch exhibits some of the same attributes.  He is a worthy successor.

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!

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!
