A Rare Glimpse at Common Sense

transgendersymWell, what do you know; there is still some sanity in this world. The full First Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a nutty ruling that a divided panel had previously upheld, ordering that Massachusetts lawmakers provide taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery for a man (now claiming to be a woman) convicted of murder. Yes, you read that correctly.

Here is the Associated Press report. The decision can be found here. But stay tuned, I’m sure the transgender individual will appeal to the Supreme Court in the near future. Let us hope that common sense continues to prevail.


Godspeed Sen. Coburn

An emotional Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) delivered his farewell address to the senate today saying:

I believe our Founders were absolutely brilliant. Far smarter than us. I believe the enumerated powers meant something. They were meant to protect us against what history says always happens to a republic. They’ve all died. They’ve all died. So the question is what will happen with us? Can we cheat history? Can we do something better than it was done in the past? And I honestly believe we can. But I don’t believe we can if we continue to ignore the wisdom of our founding documents.

One of the most thoughtful, sincere, members we have ever dealt with, Concerned Women for America (CWA) is proud to call Sen. Coburn a friend. Forever tied in a special way through our love of the late pro-life hero Michael Schwartz who served as Sen. Coburn’s longtime Chief of Staff and who was CWA’s Legislative Director prior to that, the bond of CWA and Sen. Coburn goes beyond policy. Sen. Coburn served his state and his country with distinction. We are sad to see him go, and we bid him farewell and Godspeed.

You can watch his solemn speech below:


Hat Tip to Michelle

Yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) delivered her farewell speech on the floor of the United States House of Representatives. The speech was full of the passion, grace and faith that has defined Rep. Bachmann’s stellar career as a politician. You can watch it below.

She reflected on the role of the House in American history and policy-making, and she lifted up our motto, “In God We Trust” as emblematic of what has made America great, our reliance on Almighty God.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) has a special relationship with Rep. Bachmann as she was involved with CWA even before getting involved in politics. As she thanks the prayer warriors who sustained her throughout her service in the House, she thanks many of our members who commit to pray for their representatives daily.

Rep. Bachmann sacrificed much to serve her country, and we are thankful for her. We wish her all the best as she moves forward in her service for the Lord.

Reports started to trickle down last week after a GOP meeting behind closed doors of a great divide among Republican senators on whether or not to restore the filibuster for judicial nominees when they take back the majority, undoing the so-called “nuclear option” deployed by Democrats when they were in the majority. “Senate Republicans feud […]  READ MORE

Nominations Under New Senate Leadership11/5/2014

It starts with President Obama. We still have not heard (or seen, which is far more important) whether the president will change his go-it-alone attitude toward the legislature. We hope that he will, but nothing in his record suggests a willingness to work with those who do not agree with him. Even more than the […]  READ MORE

The End of the War on Women11/5/2014

The Democrat’s “War on Women” is a war no more. That is a good thing. If you or anyone you know still had the slightest inclination to think that the Democrat’s silly little strategy of demonizing conservative women to appease abortion activists was a good idea, it all dissipated with every vote cast tonight. The […]  READ MORE

America Pleads for New Leadership11/5/2014

President Obama has a long night to think about what he wants to do going forward. No matter how much some would like to spin the election results, one thing is clear: the country has rejected the current leadership. And that rejection starts first and foremost with President Obama. Every race was run against him. […]  READ MORE

We Need a True Attorney General10/29/2014

The U.S. has not had an attorney since 2009. That’s when Eric Holder, one of President Obama’s most loyal political operatives, assumed the title and office of Attorney General. But he has not been an attorney general, or at least he’s been a very poor one — by his own account. In a recent interview […]  READ MORE
