Capitol Hill Brief — Inauguration Day

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

It’s Inauguration Day!  The streets are closed, and the stage is set here in the nation’s capital in preparation for the festivities.

We are excited to hear President-elect Trump take the solemn oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”

It is both a great honor and an incredible duty.

I will be there to witness this historic event, representing you.  That is a great honor for me!  Concerned Women for America is an organization that represents the often-ignored voice of passionate, Christian, conservative women from around the country and when I shake the hand of the incoming Administration’s leadership team today, they’ll know that. And they will listen.

Tomorrow is Inauguration Day, and while the festivities are happening in our nation’s capital, CWA is behind the scenes, tirelessly working to advocate for the issues and values you care about.

There is definitely reason for optimism, but CWA will take nothing for granted.  From religious liberty to the sanctity of life to the ObamaCare repeal to nominations and appointments, we are making your voice known to the upcoming Administration.

And most crucial of all, we are committing this transition and the new personnel to much prayer.

We know the problems we face are humanly insurmountable; we need the intervention of Almighty God to help us along.

Capitol Hill Brief — Sessions’ Love of the Law

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

 

Sen. Jeff Sessions’ opening remarks left no doubt he is the type of person we need leading the Department of Justice.  He concluded, saying:

[Audio Clip] Sen. Jeff Sessions: I’ve always loved the law … It is the very foundation of this country. It is the exceptional foundation of America. … I have an abiding commitment to pursuing and achieving justice and a record of doing that.

The Democrats wanted to fight him on policy, perhaps because that’s what they have seen from the Obama Administration, but that is not the role of the Attorney General.  The Department of Justice is supposed to enforce the laws passed by Congress, instead of being a political arm for the Administration.

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 — Despicable Me(dia)

By | Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

The mainstream media has not learned anything from the last election.  As the hearings on the nomination of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General are scheduled to begin tomorrow, the left is running silly with some old, discredited charges of racism.

The racial innuendo is meant to intimidate and end the debate without looking at the facts.

The shameful strategy has worked for the left for a long time. But not anymore!

As a district attorney in Alabama, Sen. Sessions helped to prosecute the KKK and help desegregate schools.  Those are the facts, and as John Adams said, facts are stubborn things.

Jeff Sessions is a good man and those smearing his character for political reasons should be ashamed.

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.
