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.

Sessions ‘not a racist,’ says son of black couple once prosecuted for voter fraud

AL.com
“I have known Sen. Sessions for many years, beginning with the voter fraud case in Perry County in which my parents were defendants. My differences in policy and ideology with him do not translate to personal malice. He is not a racist,” the Perry County commissioner said in a statement. “As I have said before, at no time then or now has Jeff Sessions said anything derogatory about my family. He was a prosecutor at the Federal level with a job to do. He was presented with evidence by a local District Attorney that he relied on, and his office presented the case. That’s what a prosecutor does. I believe him when he says that he was simply doing his job.”

The Sessions Smear
Politico
Sessions will likely prevail, but not before his name is dragged through the gutter in an execrable exercise in contemporary racial politics.
