Nance: Trump is Positively Impacting the Lives of Millions of Women

By | Blog, CEO, Feminist / Women's Issues, News and Events, Politics/National Sovereignty | No Comments

Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America, shared her thoughts with Breitbart News on how President Donald Trump’s administration is actually benefitting women, unlike the media claims:

“The president and CEO of the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization says the economic policies of President Donald Trump, along with his judiciary nominees and protections for the unborn, are benefiting millions of women voters in America.

In a statement sent to Breitbart News, Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America (CWA) responded to former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards’ comment last week that if women show up at the polls in full force in November, it could be “game over” for Trump.

Richards, who turned America’s largest abortion business into a political powerhouse that has now pushed the Democrat Party leftward to fully embrace abortion on demand, told MSNBC that “58% of caucus goers in Iowa were women … If 58% of voters next fall are women, it’s game over.”

Richards told host Lawrence O’Donnell there is an “enormous divide” because the president “disrespects women and disrespects the Speaker,” and “repeatedly lies about the situation for women in this country.”

“That’s why you see women so motivated right now to be involved in politics and voting,” she added.

But, Nance says unequivocally, “Cecile Richards is wrong,” and explains:

President Trump is positively impacting the lives of millions of women. His administration has supported policies that have raised wages, lowered unemployment, cut taxes, confirmed fair judges for our judicial system, and protected the unborn. These are issues about which women care.

The Trump Administration’s actions to support women are bold and successful, and female conservative voters have taken notice and are giving him credit.”

CWALAC: Not Guilty Indeed

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

Washington, D.C.Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), had this to say after the U.S. Senate vote to acquit President Donald Trump:

“Now that the anticlimactic partisan impeachment is over, we hope Senate Democrats take a break from their relentless abuse of power to try to remove the President and instead join him in continuing the great comeback he outlined in last night’s State of the Union Address.

“That is what I hear from our CWA supporters around the country. The overwhelming sense is that the whole impeachment sham was a total waste of time and taxpayer money.

“That is why, in the middle of all this political theatrics, the President’s approval numbers are the highest he has ever had. The people can recognize an injustice when they see it, and what the Democrats did to the President with this impeachment process was completely unjust.

“The President should be praised for the way he has handled the people’s business while a whole party dedicated itself full time to frustrating his every effort on behalf of the American people. They have failed today, as they have on every attempt before.

“The President won today, and with him the American people, too.”

Penny Nance on SOTU: Trump Shined Light on America’s Renewed Greatness

By | Blog, CEO, National Sovereignty, News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

WASHINGTON — Penny Nance, CEO and president of Concerned Women for America, issues the following statement praising President Trump’s third State of the Union Address, titled “The Great American Comeback”:

“Only one word describes the state of our Union under President Trump — stellar!

The president’s speech shined much-needed light on America’s renewed greatness, a comeback the media has ignored in favor of anti-Trump controversies. The economy is booming with 7 million jobs and record unemployment. Gains have been made to protect unborn life. The right of every American to freely practice their faith without government intrusion has been defended. One hundred eighty-seven Constitutionalist judges and two Supreme Court Justices have been confirmed and will defend the Constitution for decades to come. We’re finally treating our friend Israel as an ally and moved our Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Our borders are defended against terrorists and drug cartels. Despots and bad actors across the globe respect and fear America again, and trust our red lines.

There is no doubt America is experiencing the blessing of renewal, and President Trump’s leadership has been, frankly, unimpeachable.”

Historic Peace Proposal

By | Blog, News and Events, Support for Israel | No Comments

President Trump announced a historic new peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Wednesday. He did this alongside Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, after meeting with Netanyahu’s political rival for the position of PM, General Gantz. Both Netanyahu and Gantz committed to using this plan as the basis for future negotiations with the Palestinians.

Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” is the most detailed plan yet, professing to be more comprehensive and “realistic” than the Oslo Accords of the 1990s with the goal of safeguarding Israel’s security and bringing prosperity and opportunity to the Palestinians. This plan lays the groundwork for negotiations by diving into some of the most complex aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It aims not only “… to end the conflict, (but also) unlock the vast human potential and economic opportunity that peace will bring to Israelis, Palestinians and the region as a whole … given the realities on the ground and in the broader Middle East.”

Chief among these complexities are the suggested borders of a “realistic two-state solution” that gives the Palestinians self-governing authority but “not the powers to threaten Israel.” This is the first time Israel has agreed to tangible lines on a map as a starting point for negotiations in order to progress towards a two-state solution. A conceptual map of what a potential future state of Palestine might look like is included in the plan.

The plan centers on three initiatives to support the economy, people, and government of a “prosperous and vibrant Palestinian society”. However, there are preconditions the Palestinians must meet to be eligible for statehood. As a sign of good faith, Israel has agreed to a four-year freeze on settlements or development on land proposed to be part of a Palestinian state. This gives the Palestinians time to meet the requirements which include reforming their banking system, ending support for terrorism, building their infrastructure and civil society, and negotiating for peace.

The plan includes $50 billion in commercial investment in a future Palestine. This would cut the poverty rate of Palestinians in half which could also serve as a deterrent or alternative to terrorism with better options for the future. These investments would economically connect the Palestinians to the Israelis, as well as with the rest of the region and world. Economic ties disincentivize violence in conflict areas by creating a common interest.

Another historic milestone is support for the plan by Arab neighbors in the region. Both Saudi Arabia and the UAE are encouraging Palestinian leaders to use Peace to Prosperity as the starting point for negotiations. Ambassadors from Bahrain, Oman, and the UAE attended the announcement of the plan at the White House, reflecting how the tremendous importance of peace extends beyond the Israelis and Palestinians to the region.

It may be that current U.S. challenges with Iran ripened the timing of this plan. Iranian general Qassem Soleimani oversaw Iran’s control of Hamas and Hezbollah who operate and even run parts of the Palestinian territories. A peace plan, especially one supported by the Gulf States, diffuses and perhaps eliminates Iran’s reach into Gaza and the West Bank.

The President has taken decisive action in successive steps that curates an opening for peace. CWA International Affairs is assessing the historic plan and will look for ways to engage in its success. We ask that you pray with us for wisdom for the U.S. administration and for Israel, and that all parties seize this historic moment for the peace and prosperity of the Israelis, Palestinians, and the region.

Fake Concern on Impeachment

By | Blog, LBB, News and Events | No Comments

It is maddening to try to follow the liberal’s “AstroTurf” outrage about President Trump’s supposed impeachable conduct. Everything they allege President Trump of doing the Democrats have unquestionably done themselves.

The Russia hoax was their first attempt. “He colluded with the Russians to interfere with the election,” they yelled. Only, it turns out the Mueller Report found no evidence of this. In fact, what we found is that liberals had conspired to produce the infamous fake Russian dossier and used it to abuse our judicial system to violate candidate Trump’s civil rights.

The FBI has now actually apologized for the abuse of power as outlined in the recent Inspector General report where the FBI actually falsified documents in order to continue its illegal investigation of candidate Trump.

It is painful to watch Adam Schiff, the mastermind behind the impeachment, talk about the scandal that is President Trump withholding “vital lethal aid” to Ukraine for a couple of weeks. But then you find out that President Obama never gave the aid during his entire time in office. President Trump actually gave the aid and only delayed further future assistance for a few weeks. The Ukrainians didn’t even know there was a delay until the press created the scandal.

They went on and on for weeks about the “quid pro quo,” the worst kind of impeachable offense in their mind. Then you see a clip of Joe Biden bragging about the tactic during the Obama Administration. They have spent millions of dollars investigating President Trump’s alleged quid pro quo, with nothing to show, but somehow to investigate the Biden incident is beyond the pale.

This impeachment is a joke. It will forever be a stain on our country and especially on the Democrats who have engaged in the worst kind of political manipulation of the American people.

Today, as the first day of questions is underway, we have seen more of the same political theater. No minds are being changed. They are playing to the cameras. Which is to say, they are playing you and me, the viewers—the American people.

Enough is enough. It’s time to end this fake impeachment.

Let your voice be heard. Visit CWA’s Impeachment Central and let your senator know what you think about this impeachment. Tell them it is time to put an end to this charade and get back to the business of the people.

And be sure to check out today’s briefing for more on what is taking place in the Senate:

CWALAC Applauds President Trump’s efforts to Achieve Middle East Peace

By | Blog, International, News and Events, Press Releases, Support for Israel, Support for Israel | No Comments

Washington, D.C. — Today President Trump announced his comprehensive plan “Peace to Prosperity” to secure Israeli and Palestinian peace. In attendance with Prime Minister Netanyahu and General Gantz, the leader of Israel’s Blue and White Party, were ambassadors from the U.A.E, Bahrain, and Oman. Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) had this to say:

“Thank you, President Trump, for your unwavering commitment of support for our friend and ally Israel and to building sustainable peace in the Middle East.

“It is our hope that this plan is a catalyst for a real and lasting peace that improves the lives of both Israelis and Palestinians. By bringing together partners within the Gulf states, we envision that a solution may be reached that is beneficial to both parties and supported by allies on both sides of the conflict.

“President Trump has secured the commitment of both Prime Minister Netanyahu and General Gantz to use this plan as the basis for any direct negotiations with the Palestinians. Regardless of the outcome of Israel’s historic March 2020 elections, Israel and the U.S. will continue to work towards peace.

“We hope the Palestinian leadership will come to the table in good faith. The Palestinian people deserve a commitment from their leaders to negotiate a deal that creates peace and prosperity for all.

“Thank you, President Trump, for once again upholding your promise to support Israel and peace in the Middle East with the release of this comprehensive plan. CWALAC looks forward to delving further into the details of ‘Peace to Prosperity’ to see how we might best engage on the path to success.”

Impeachment Must End

By | Blog, LBB, News and Events | No Comments

We have now heard from both sides of the impeachment trial. The House Managers presented their case. The president’s team concluded today presenting their defense. And one cannot help but ask how in the world did the majority of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives get away with such a miscarriage of justice?

The two articles they presented are so amorphous they could be used to impeach every single president in history. Even the linchpin of their argument, President Trump’s call with President Zelensky of Ukraine, has collapsed under the weight of the evidence.

The whole exercise has been pure political theatre with no redeemable aspect.

So now it is time for senators to hear from you! The Democrats’ dangerous manipulation of the impeachment process must not go unanswered. Please visit our Impeachment Central page at ConcernedWomen.org/impeachmentcentral for the latest news and to take action.

Please write, tweet, and call your senators and let them know they should oppose these baseless impeachment articles because they simply do not meet the constitutional standard established by the Founders.

Your voice matters. Please take action and share our Impeachment Central page with your family and friends. Together we can stand for justice!

Finally, check out our latest briefing where Toni DeLancey, CWA’s Chief Operating Officer, joins me in exploring what is really driving these impeachment proceedings. You won’t want to miss it.

The President’s Team Sets the Record Straight

By | Blog, LBB, News and Events | No Comments

There was simply no link between investigations and security assistance. As the president’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said, “First, the transcript shows that the President did not condition either security assistance or a meeting on anything. The paused security assistance funds aren’t even mentioned on the call.” Ukrainian President Zelensky said there was no pressure on him, and they did not even know that some aid had been delayed at the time of the call. Those who spoke directly to the President say there was no quid pro quo. All aid was given, and nothing was received in return. Indeed, President Trump gave Ukraine the crucial missiles it needed to defend itself that had been previously withheld under the Obama Administration.

The President was right to be concerned about corruption in Ukraine. There are legitimate concerns surrounding Hunter Biden and his relationship with Burisma. It is entirely appropriate for the president to press for an investigation into corruption.

The bottom line continues to be that the whole impeachment process has been tainted by political aspirations that have clouded the proceedings and demand these charges be dismissed. Jay Sekulow again:

 I want to contrast the solemn nature of these proceedings and what is been laid out before us from a both historical and constitutional perspective. I want you to think about this – the history, the importance, the solemnity of what we are engaged in here in this great body – with what took place in the House of Representatives upon the signing of articles of impeachment. Pens distributed to the impeachment managers – a celebratory moment.

President’s Defense Team Makes Opening Arguments – Exposes Hoax of Impeachment

By | Blog, News and Events | No Comments

The President’s team has exposed the impeachment case against President Donald Trump as yet another hoax against him, perpetrated by those who fear that the American people will reelect President Trump for another term. The impeachment case is empty.

That is why they will not succeed. Americans know this is a politically motivated, completely mishandled process. President Trump will be acquitted, and he will win reelection.

But the violence done to the Constitution in the radical liberal’s feeble attempt to deliver on the promise they made long before— indeed, from the day the President was elected— to impeach him will have done lasting damage to our Republic. This is what the hundreds of thousands of Concerned Women for America (CWA) supporters around the country will remember as they pray for the President and the country and as they educate and mobilize their neighbors at election time. There will be a price to pay for this great injustice.

Impeachment Day 3 Recap

We continued to hear the same unproven allegations from the House managers as they presented their case to remove the President before the Senate on day two of their opening statements. And, the mindboggling thing is how long they have been preparing for this dud.

Vanity Fair, December 15, 2016: “Democrats are Paving the Way to Impeach Donald Trump.”

Washington Post, January 2017: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.”

TIME, January 20, 2017: “There’s Already a Campaign to Impeach President Donald Trump.”

Washington Post, February 24, 2017: “Impeach Trump? Most Democrats already say ‘yes.’”

CNN, February 6, 2017: “Rep. Maxine Waters: Trump’s actions ‘leading himself’ to impeachment.”

INDEPENDENT, February 23, 2017: “Keith Ellison calls for impeachment investigations of Donald Trump.” 

This is not a serious process the Democrats entered into because of a phone call. To conclude otherwise is to ignore the clear evidence before us. However, the result of the political manipulation of such a powerful constitutional provision could be devastating to our country.

Check out today’s Impeachment Briefing to hear more about the dangerous rhetoric being used by House Managers that threatens the legitimacy of our elections. In today’s episode, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Penny Nance joins us to comment on some exciting news and her take on impeachment.

The Hot Air Impeachment Continues

By | Blog, LBB, News and Events | No Comments

The rhetoric certainly remained at a high pitch. But on day two of the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, the Democrats have, once again, failed to meet the clear constitutional threshold to remove a president of the United States. Opening statements for the House managers began today, and we heard virtually the same arguments we’ve heard all along.

The impeachment case is empty. The evidence presented does not support their claims. One must read into the evidence some imaginary nefarious motive which they are all too willing to do in order to make any sense of it. And even then, the legal case is still in shambles.

This is, of course, why they are spending so much time trying to acquire new evidence. No reasonable person could vote to impeach a president under these set of circumstances. But their irresponsible rush through the House proceedings is their blunder, not the Senate’s. Wishing there would be more evidence does not make it so. The Senate is under no obligation to go on such a fishing expedition.

The fact is that the President released the phone call in question, and it said nothing about tying aid to anything. The President called for an investigation into corruption that had been highlighted by numerous news organizations. Ukraine received the money without any action on their part.

Those are the plain facts. Pair that with the uncontested fact that Democrats swore they would impeach this President from the moment he took office, and one must conclude this is not a serious investigation. Senators, from both parties, should reject it outright.

Watch the video below for a recap of Day 1:
