Capitol Hill Brief — Thank You!

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty | No Comments

 

Yesterday was a bright and sunny, joyful day as I was able to witness the swearing in of Justice Neil Gorsuch in the White House Rose Garden.

I have already thanked you, our Concerned Women for America members, for all you did to support his nomination.

But we must also pause and thank President Trump who kept his promise in nominating someone in the mold of Justice Scalia.

Also, we must thank Senate leadership.  Majority leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, and all senators who stood united for this outstanding nominee.

They were not all Republicans, by the way.  Despite the media’s spin, Judge Gorsuch enjoyed the support of several Democratic senators, and that is a great testament to his incredible qualifications.

Capitol Hill Brief — Gorsuch’s Respect for the Law

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Judge Neil Gorsuch hit it out of the park at his confirmation hearings last week.  Here he is describing his unapologetic respect for the law in his opening remarks:

[AUDIO CLIP] Judge Neil Gorsuch: Sometimes the answers we reach aren’t the ones we personally prefer. Sometimes the answers follow us home at night. But the answers we reach are always the ones we believe the law requires. And for all its imperfections, I believe that the rule of law in this nation truly is a wonder. And that it is no wonder that it’s the envy of the world.

Democrats tried to trip him, seeking to appease their base, but their efforts were futile.  Gorsuch was winsome, poised and humble — a devastating combination for them.

It’s time to confirm Gorsuch without delay.

Capitol Hill Brief — Gorsuch’s Commitment Issues

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

They’ve tried any and every way they can, but Democratic senators in the judiciary committee have been “punching the wind,” so to speak, as they try to land a blow on President Trump’s highly qualified nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Sen. Feinstein pressed him on his policy preferences on several liberal issues.  Here is how he responded:

[AUDIO CLIP] Judge Neil Gorsuch: Well, it’s not a matter of agreeing or disagreeing, senator, respectfully. It’s a matter of it being the law. And my job is to apply and enforce the law.

[AUDIO CLIP] Sen. Feinstein: Alright. Fair enough.

Time and again they tried to get him to commit to rule with liberals on things like abortion and same-sex “marriage,” yet Judge Gorsuch stood firm.  He must be confirmed.

Capitol Hill Brief — Your Voice In Washington

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Concerned Women for America is your voice in our nation’s capital.  Last week, your support of the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was seen and heard loud and clear at the capitol.

About a hundred of our Young Women for America members and state leaders gathered there to ask senators to stop playing politics with this important nomination and confirm Judge Gorsuch.

Senators, legislative staffers, and even White House officials came by and took notice of effort.

CWA was also inside the hearing room where I was able to spend some time personally and take the same message to lawmakers and influencers from both sides of the aisle.  Join CWA today and be part of something great.

Capitol Hill Brief — Secret Legislators

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Judge Neil Gorsuch spoke these wise words during his confirmation hearing before the Senate last week.

[Audio Clip] Judge Neil Gorsuch: If judges were just secret legislators, declaring not what the law is, but what they would like it to be, the very idea of a government by the people and for the people would be at risk. And those who came before the court would live in fear, never sure exactly what the law requires of them, except for the judge’s will.

With Gorsuch on the bench, we wouldn’t have to live in that fear that he would act like a secret legislator, but we could instead be confident as Americans in the role of the judiciary in our governmental system.  CWA urges the Senate to confirm Judge Gorsuch.

Capitol Hill Brief — A Gavel, Not a Rubber Stamp

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

During His confirmation hearings, Judge Neil Gorsuch commented on his role as a judge by saying “They gave me a gavel, not a rubber stamp.” And that, “Nobody is above the law,” no matter what their social status.

Members of both parties have nothing to fear from a judge like that — one who puts the law above partisan politics. He said his style of judging would be to consider “the law and the facts of each particular case.”

Concerned Women for America has been encouraging senators of both parties to realize that voting to confirm Gorsuch makes sense — both politically and ideologically.  Gorsuch stands for the preservation of the American order and would make a great addition to our highest court.

Capitol Hill Brief — Inappropriate Ginsburg

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Here’s something we won’t hear from Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court: more political commentary, like the continuously inappropriate comments of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In her latest, she tells the BBC that, “A great man once said that the true symbol of the United States … is the pendulum, and when the pendulum swings too far in one direction, it will swing back.”

She said that because she’s not happy with President Donald Trump and now she wants the international community to know that he will not be in power forever.

How shameful from a sitting Supreme Court Justice.  We should be thankful Neil Gorsuch is not set to follow in her footsteps.

Capitol Hill Brief — CWA is Your Voice Around the Nation

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Concerned Women for America is your voice around the nation on issues you care about.  Recently, we have been speaking on behalf of Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.  Here is CWA’s Communications Coordinator Janae Stracke at a recent town hall meeting:

[AUDIO CLIP] Janae Stracke: It isn’t about the issues, which is what a lot of the people are talking about. The point is that he will rule on the law and not be creating legislation. … He was confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court without opposition, and I find it hard to believe that a judge who was appointed without opposition before would have a hard time now.

Your support is what makes this possible, so I want to thank you!

Capitol Hill Brief — CWA of Maine Stands for Gorsuch

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Concerned Women for America of Maine state director Penny Morrell stood up for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court at a recent town hall meeting hosted by Sen. King.  Here is what she said:

[AUDIO CLIP] Penny Morrell: Thank you, Senator King. My name is Penny Morrell. I’m state director for Concerned Women for America of Maine. Thank you for having this forum tonight. I would urge you to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court because he is a strict constitutionalist. And it is not the job of the Supreme Court to make law; it is the job of the Supreme Court to be sure that any law is subject to the constitution as originally written.
