The Deafening Silence of the Mainstream Media

By | Blog, News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

The press is of vital importance to Western civilization. It is a powerful tool because of its ability to bring attention to any situation.  Thomas Jefferson said, “The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure.” Read More

President-elect Trump on the Right Track with Sen. Sessions for Attorney General

By | National Sovereignty, News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

CWALAC_MediaStatementWashington, D.C. – Penny Nance, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, made the following comments on the news that President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions (R) to serve as the 84th U.S. Attorney General:

Sen. Sessions has been a champion for the conservative principles that are the foundation of liberty and freedom.  Both his academic preparation and his stellar career as a U.S. Attorney and as a senator testify of an honest, competent man with a heart towards serving his fellow countrymen, even through much personal sacrifice.

We commend President-elect Trump for his selection of such a strong candidate.  The choice speaks very highly of his commitment to conservative principles.

The hundreds of thousands of members of Concerned Women for America (CWA) around the country will urge senators to move quickly in the new year to confirm Sen. Sessions as the next attorney general, so that we may start rectifying many of the asphyxiating policies pursued by Attorney General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.

The attacks on religious freedom and freedom of conscience in general, for example, must be at the top of the list.

Capitol Hill Brief – They Hyde Storm

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

There’s a storm brewing in D.C. over the Hyde Amendment. This year’s Democratic National platform set a goal to force taxpayers to pay for abortions. They want to do this by repealing the Hyde Amendment, which has been largely uncontroversial, until now.

However, the majority of Americans – 68% to be precise – oppose taxpayer funding of abortion.

Forcing American taxpayers to fund abortions is a violation of the First Amendment rights of those who are religiously or morally opposed to abortion.

That is unacceptable.

Anything other than upholding the Hyde Amendment would be a direct contradiction of will of the American people.

Call your congressman and senators and ask them to protect Hyde.


We must protect the unborn. Sign our petition to tell Congress to preserve the Hyde Amendment. It’s the only federal limit on taxpayer-funded abortion that exists today, and we can’t let it fall. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org to sign and save unborn lives!

Capitol Hill Brief — Kaine Supports Hyde

When even radically liberal Tim Kaine supports a restriction on abortion, you know it’s benign.  Here he is, reiterating his support for the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the taxpayer funding of abortion.

[Audio Clip] Reporter: One more issue, senator. The Hyde Amendment …

[Audio Clip] Sen. Kaine: MmHmm

[Audio Clip] Reporter: That bans taxpayer funding for abortion …

[Audio Clip] Sen. Kaine: MmHmm

[Audio Clip] Reporter: For or against it?

[Audio Clip] Sen. Kaine: Uh, I have been for the Hyde Amendment. I haven’t changed my position on that.

[Audio Clip] Reporter: You’re still for it? You’re still for the banning …

[Audio Clip] Sen. Kaine: I … I have not changed my position.

[Audio Clip] Reporter: Um …

[Audio Clip] Sen. Kaine: I have not changed my position on that.

Yet, Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party have vowed to repeal the Hyde Amendment.  That’s how radical the left has become on abortion.

Capitol Hill Brief — Hyde Saves Lives

Did you know that many people walking on earth today have the Hyde Amendment to thank?  In fact, it is estimated that more than two million babies have been saved because of a simple law that prevents the use of taxpayer funding for abortion.

Millions of women in crisis pregnancies instead turn to compassionate pre-natal care and healthcare available all around the country.  And there are thousands of these clinics available.

Those of us who value unborn life; who value freedom of conscience; who know women deserve better than abortion; and who believe the government has no business promoting abortion, must work together to preserve the Hyde Amendment.

We must not let this reasonable law become a partisan issue.

Capitol Hill Brief — Protect Hyde

Abortion is a deeply divisive issue in this country, but most people agree that those who object to it should not be forced to pay for someone else’s abortion.

This is the concept behind what is known as the Hyde Amendment, that’s adopted into almost every federal government spending bill annually.

First introduced by Rep. Henry Hyde in 1976, this amendment prevents federal funding from paying for abortions except in the cases of rape, incest, or to save the mother’s life.

This isn’t a radical concept; in fact, 68% of Americans surveyed agree that taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund abortion.

We must protect this crucial legislation and make it permanent.

Billy Graham once said that, “When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.” This is who we celebrate today on Veteran’s Day — the brave men and women of our military, who by their humble service, lift up an entire nation.

So if you are a veteran, the hundreds of thousands of members of Concerned Women for America around our nation want to thank you for your sacrifice by praying a blessing over you and your families.

Jesus told us there is no greater love than this, “that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Those who serve in our military put on this form of love. And we honor you today. Thank you.


Congress is debating whether to include women in the draft. Tell our congressmen and women that we’ll not be forced into sending our daughters to the frontline of combat. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org to sign our petition today!

Capitol Hill Brief — Choosing to Serve

Women have played invaluable roles in America’s history.  From heroes like Molly Pitcher, who chose to fight in the American Revolution, to Clare Barton, who chose to care for the wounded of the Civil War and founded The American Red Cross, to suffragist Susan B. Anthony, who chose to fight for a woman’s right to vote.

Then you have thousands of women who have served the home front running farms and businesses and providing stability in their homes and for the whole country.

All forms of services these women have performed require great sacrifices; they carry with them significant heartache.  Our country thrives when women are allowed to choose where they can best serve their nation.
