Capitol Hill Brief — Despicable Me(dia)

By | Uncategorized | 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.


Bring strong leadership to President-elect Trump’s cabinet by supporting conservatives like Sen. Jeff Sessions who will promote Biblical, constitutional values. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org to sign our petition to Congress supporting Sen. Sessions. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.

 

Capitol Hill Brief — Repeal All Executive Orders

Under our Constitution, Congress, not the president, creates the laws. But President Obama tried to circumvent the constitutional model by misusing executive orders. He famously said:

[Audio Clip] President Obama: We are not just going to be waiting for legislation. I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.

From ObamaCare’s unprecedented push for the taxpayer funding for abortion to the mischievous assault on the privacy and safety of young women by requiring schools to open showers and locker rooms and bathrooms to transgender students to executive orders that single-handedly removed U.S. sanctions on Iran, President Trump must overturn all these misguided Executive Orders by President Obama on day one.


The first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency will be critical. Join CWA and encourage him to prioritize conservative values. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org to sign our petition today. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.

Capitol Hill Brief — Living Up to Our Calling

In his 1815 Thanksgiving Day proclamation, President James Madison wrote:

No people ought to feel greater obligations to celebrate the goodness of the Great Disposer of Events of the destiny of Nations than the people of the United States. … And to the same Divine Author of Every Good and Perfect Gift we are indebted for all those privileges and advantages, religious as well as civil, which are so richly enjoyed in this favored land.

Do you know how privileged you are to live in America?  I hope you do, for Scripture reminds us that to him who much is given much is required. I pray this Thanksgiving that we may live up to the many blessings we have received.


This holiday season, we’ll come together to celebrate with family and friends. It’s the perfect time to give thanks and to pray for our nation and each other.  Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org for a special Thanksgiving prayer guide today.  

Capitol Hill Brief — He Reigns

It’s Thanksgiving week and my heart feels up with joy and song as I remember just one thing …

God is still king!

That means there’s hope. In the middle of the many difficulties we face personally, as a country, — even in the whole world — we can rest on His unwavering love.

Remember the old hymn?

     This is my Fathers world.
     O let me ne’er forget
     That though the wrong seems oft so strong,
     God is the ruler yet.

     This is my Fathers world:
     Why should my heart be sad?
     The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
     God reigns; let the earth be glad!


This holiday season, we’ll come together to celebrate with family and friends. It’s the perfect time to give thanks and to pray for our nation and each other. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org for a special Thanksgiving prayer guide today.

Mike Pence Shined in Debate, Showed that Social Issues Matter

By | News and Events, Press Releases, Sanctity of Life, Uncategorized | No Comments

CWALAC_MediaStatementConcerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance had this to say about last night’s Vice-Presidential Debate:

“Mike Pence shined as a Vice Presidential candidate who embodied what it means to show kindness and statesmanship as a faith-filled public servant,” said Penny Nance, President & CEO of Concerned Women for America, our nation’s largest Women’s Public Policy Organization. “Among the many conservative principles he articulated tonight, Mike Pence showed that social issues matter.  They illuminate the fundamental principle of human dignity that underscores every policy. Mike Pence articulately clarified that women who make the heartbreaking decision on abortion should not be punished, but rather we should work to build a culture of life – one in which human life in the womb is valued.  One in which the most vulnerable among us – including the aged, sick, and unborn – are honored.  One in which adoption policy turns what begins as a “crisis” pregnancy into an answer to prayer for infertile couples.”

“Tim Kaine fails to see abortion as a fundamental human rights issue violating the rights of the unborn child,” added Nance, who is also author of the new book Feisty and Feminine: A Rallying Cry for Conservative Women. “I find it odd that a man of faith who says he struggled with allowing the death penalty because of his faith, is also pro-abortion. He seems to have no qualms about losing the lives of the most vulnerable and unprotected in our society, the unborn. Women are strong and able, but the so-called ‘pro-choice’ community often takes advantage of women at a very vulnerable time in their life and only promote one option–abortion.”

“Tim Kaine has proven himself to be an even match for Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton supports completely unrestricted abortion at any time for any reason. As Pence stated, Hillary’s extremism on this fundamental issue led her to support partial-birth abortion, and now her campaign wants the repeal of the Hyde amendment, which has saved two million lives. Repealing the Hyde amendment would lead to tax-payer-funded abortions.  That kind of policy is out of touch with the majority of Americans who believe there should be restrictions on abortion, it denies women better choices than abortion, and it disregards the humanity of the unborn.”

Planned Parenthood: What Can We Do?

By | Blog, News and Events, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life, Uncategorized | No Comments

When Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards was called before the House Oversight Committee.  The question of the day was whether Planned Parenthood deserved federal funding (a decision Congress put off by passing a temporary budget until December when the debate on passing a budget will resume). Miss Richards was the only one questioned with Republicans grilling her and Democrats rushing to her defense.

The hearing was sparked by the Center for Medical Progress undercover videos which show Planned Parenthood’s illegal activity. Using the videos as a starting point, members of the Oversite Committee plunged deep into the larger spending habits of Planned Parenthood and the things that make them unworthy of funding. Planned Parenthood, Republicans pointed out, uses money for exorbitant salaries ($520,000 just for Cecile Richards — by her own admission!), overseas funding ventures, pro-choice political lobbying, and expanding their services, though they are already the largest abortion provider in America.

Planned Parenthood makes millions in excess revenue each year and does not need federal money to continue its mission. Proposals to defund have two components — 60 million federal dollars directly, and around $500 million more government reimbursements for Medicaid services. Though Medicaid money can’t go directly to abortion (except in cases of rape, incest, or the mother’s life), the money Planned Parenthood gets from the government allows them to move their other sources of revenue into their abortion-centric business and their questionable lobbying efforts.

If you were watching the hearing and felt like pulling your hair out (trust me, we understand), then you’re probably wondering, “What can I do?” Beyond calling your senators and representatives, learning more about Planned Parenthood, and signing a petition, there are several important ways a concerned Christian can be involved:

  1. We need to pray and discuss.
    Don’t be silent about what is happening. So many still don’t know about the videos or don’t think they can trust them. Discuss them, and prove them wrong. Pray for those who stand against us, especially mislead pro-choice advocates like hurting post-abortive women.  Pray for Cecile Richards that God would touch her heart. We need to treat her with the same human dignity we wish she would extend to the unborn.
  1. We need to actually be the medical alternative to Planned Parenthood.
    The pro-life movement has done an excellent job of meeting many needs, such as counseling, baby supplies, ultrasounds, post-abortive healing, legal advocacy, and educational initiatives.  Unfortunately, we have let Planned Parenthood hold a monopoly on medical services like family planning, STD testing, and breast exams. It is true that community health centers, primary care doctors, and increasing numbers of medicalized pregnancy centers and non-profit OBGYNs serve many of the health needs of women, but the pro-life movement itself is still primarily non-medical, a reality that needs to be addressed.
  2. We need to realize that health clinic name ID truly matters.
    Planned Parenthood is so successful in many ways because of their marketing and the coherency of their affiliates in a way that makes women think Planned Parenthood is the only option, when scattered community health centers are little known, underfunded, and underutilized. As we consider offering alternatives, we should carefully strategize marketing, franchising, and name ID.
  3. We need to question Planned Parenthood’s lies that they help women.
    Because Planned Parenthood is such a recognizable name in women’s healthcare, they’re thus able to define the terms of their services, leaving many women unaware of findings such as abortion’s link to breast cancer, certain health risks of some birth control, potential abortifacients, and the effectiveness of hormone-free family planning.  Furthermore, Planned Parenthood has essentially made “women’s health” synonymous with birth control and abortion, denying or minimizing all other health issues facing American women.  For instance, the number one killer of women is heart disease, and we do not hear them discussing that fact.  They also continue pushing the ideology that the government should be the one funding their “healthcare” services, despite the deep controversy and possible criminal activity of Planned Parenthood.

Live Action Does It Again: Abortion Facts Change Minds

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Who wants to be against science? Who wants to kill humans in the womb?

Simple videos show that with abortion – both science and facts are on our side.

Live Action, a group known for undercover investigations into the abortion industry, has creatively put together animated videos at AbortionProcedures.com in order to show people what abortion is really like.  Quite powerfully, the videos are narrated by a former abortionist who thus lends a very accurate perspective and explains his own change of heart in one of the videos.

These powerful videos of abortion procedures are actually changing people’s minds when they are shown the reality of abortion.

Check out this moving video of people on the street who radically reconsider their moderate to pro-choice views upon viewing this video.

Dear Presidential Candidates,

 

We can no longer stand by while ISIS murders Americans within our own borders, rapes women, kidnaps children, and beheads Christians. President Obama’s failure to lead our nation in the war against ISIS has made America a greater target than ever.

 

It’s vital that we know the next president – whoever that may be – will protect America.

 

So we’re asking you, as the potential next president, to take the pledge to do all in your power to defeat ISIS and terrorism, placing America once again in a position of true moral leadership in the world.

 

Signed,
