Sessions

A Time to Celebrate

By | News and Events, Sessions | No Comments

You prayed, made calls, sent letters, wrote blog posts, op-eds and many emails.  Now it’s time to celebrate!

Senator Sessions was just confirmed as the next U.S. Attorney General by a 52-47 vote in the Senate.  Check out Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) press release on the exciting news!  She said:

Americans deserve an Attorney General who will enforce the rule of law regardless of their political or personal opinions, and that is exactly what newly confirmed Attorney General Sessions has promised.

Go ahead, take a moment.  It is good to see a good man like Sen. Jeff Session, sorry, actually, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions (sounds good doesn’t it?) overcome the unprecedented smear campaign from the left we witnessed and come out victorious.

This is just the latest example of what we can do when we raise our voices and work together.

We rejoice not only for his personal victory but also because this is a victory for all Americans.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) is in desperate need of a leader that refuses to put politics ahead of the law.

Politics have ruled for the last eight years of the Obama Administration.  Still today, former Attorney General Eric Holder is plotting to undermine the Trump Administration’s DOJ.

AG Sessions’ task will not be easy, so he will continue to need our prayers going forward.

But for now, we take a moment and simply smile.

Sessions Wins Cloture Vote

By | Legal, News and Events, Sessions | No Comments

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) is one step closer to becoming the 84th Attorney General of the United States.  Today, the Senate voted 52 to 47 to invoke cloture and end the debate on his confirmation.  A 30-hour discussion period will follow, after which the final vote is expected Wednesday night.

This is great news for Concerned Women for America (CWA); we feel Sen. Jeff Sessions is just the type of leader the Department of Justice needs, especially after eight years of politicization under the Obama Administration and former Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.

Please keep Sen. Sessions and the Senate in your prayers as they continue to consider his nomination.

I also ask you to pray for Sen. Sessions’ replacement.  Once Sen. Sessions is confirmed and sworn in (probably on Thursday), Alabama Governor Robert J. Bentley (R) will appoint a replacement to his Senate seat.  With the increase in irrational partisanship in Washington, let us pray Sen. Sessions’ replacement is as dedicated to the constitutional principles that guard our liberty as he was.

Sen. Session’s 20 years of service will be a hard act to follow, but we are praying that God will raise a man or woman “for such a time as this.”

More to come, so stay tuned.

Nelson Praised Sessions, Now He Should Vote to Confirm Him

Sen. Jeff Sessions has been nominated by President-elect Donald Trump as the nation’s next Attorney General. As the state director of Concerned Women for America of Florida, I represent the concerns of so many Floridian women who are ecstatic about such a great candidate.  We are eager to see justice and respect for the rule of law return to the Department of Justice (DOJ), and we hope our senator feels likewise.
