Soleimani Was the Tip of Iran’s Spear Against Americans

By | Blog, CEO, News and Events, Politics/National Sovereignty | No Comments

President and CEO of CWA, Penny Nance, wrote the following piece addressing Iran and America’s long and complicated history and how some have upheld the promise to “never forget”:

About 19 years ago I was a part-time, work-from-home mom with a 10-month-old and a 4-year-old. I literally heard a “boom” when American Airlines flight 77 slammed into the side of the Pentagon three miles from my home, taking the lives of 184 innocents, as three more planes took the lives of many others in New York and Pennsylvania that day. Even more traumatic, my husband and I spent the evening comforting the pregnant wife of Navy CDR Patrick Dunn as she awaited news of her dead husband’s fate.

American citizens unified in our horror and outrage against evil men for their murderous actions but we also were furious with U.S. Intelligence for their failure to disrupt the plot. Last week our intelligence community proved that they took to heart our demand to “never forget.”

Unfortunately, many Democrats seem to have developed amnesia over the past week. Following the airstrike that killied Iranian commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s retaliatory airstrikes at U.S. bases in Iraq and even the downing of a passenger plane full of innocent people, some Democrats seem to think President Trump is wrong to use a strong hand against Iran.

CWA Statement on Trump Administration’s Vaping announcement

By | Blog, Media Relations, News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

We applaud President Trump for responding with common-sense actions to stem the tide of the youth vaping epidemic. Raising the tobacco age to 21 and instituting new enforcement policies against the manufacture, distribution and sale of flavored nicotine e-cigarette cartridges are essential steps.  With these actions, the Trump administration sends an unequivocal message against the dangers of teen drug use and addiction.   Unfortunately, this crisis has also exposed the aggressive tactics of a bigger enemy, the tobacco/marijuana industry that is now intertwined and deliberately deflecting the dangers of THC vaping and marijuana use.  Those promoting marijuana legalization while criticizing the President for not going far enough on e-cigarettes are part of the playbook.   If they cared about the effects of youth vaping in our culture, they would stand against efforts to legitimize and normalize marijuana use.  Sending mixed messages to our youth will only intensify the crisis.
