Lanhee Chen: The Leftward Lurch Continues

The leftward lurch of the Democratic contenders for the presidency continues. The latest idea? California Senator Kamala Harris has called for repeal of the Trump tax cuts. Not some of them. Or just the “tax cuts for the rich.” But all of them.

Millions of middle-income families have benefited from these tax cuts. And our economy is zooming, while unemployment is low and wages are rising. Repealing the Trump tax cuts would imperil the economic progress that we’ve made over the last several years, slowing job creation and threatening to put us back into economic malaise.

Democrats want to raise taxes to pay for their costly social spending plans, like free college tuition and government-run health care. But the tax hikes they are proposing won’t pay for even a fraction of their plans. And their policy proposals look a lot less attractive when you dig beneath the surface.

It’s up to all of us, the voters, to hold them accountable.

Albert Mohler: A Clear Picture of the Pro-Abortion Worldview

The fetal heartbeat bills recently adopted in several states are strategic efforts intended to provoke the attention of the United States Supreme Court to confront the logic of the Roe v. Wade decision.

The passage of these bills has also provoked a very revealing public conversation. Notably, Christine Quinn—active in New York city politics over the years, said on CNN, “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.”

Whatever the inhabitant of the womb is, according to Christine Quinn, “it’s not a human being.”

Because, if it were, pro-abortion advocates would then have to recognize the personhood of that being and recognize his or her rights.

The only significant moral agent when it comes to those who are representing the pro-choice position is the woman. The baby simply doesn’t exist.

Christine Quinn’s horrifying comment has at least achieved one thing, moral clarity, and we should at least note that.

Michael Medved: Rep. Tlaib’s Breathtaking Ignorance and Incoherence

Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, has delivered some of the most ignorant and incoherent statements ever made about the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

She claims that the re-emergence of the Jewish State “was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews” and then adds “and I love the fact that it was my ancestors, Palestinians, that provided that right.”

Of course, this ignores the genocidal riots by Palestinians that killed thousands of Jewish civilians in the 1920s and ’30s. Palestinians never “provided” a safe haven for Jews, but in fact supported Nazis and encouraged the Holocaust, while doing their level best to shut all routes of escape from Hitler’s inferno.

What’s most striking about Representative Tlaib’s indefensible, anti-Semitic gibberish isn’t its malevolence but, rather, its breathtaking stupidity.

Dan Proft: Kendrick Castillo: Real Man

In our era of entitled youth and young men weakened by safe-spaced college campuses and fears of their own toxicity, it’s easy to fret for America’s future.

And then we are reminded of the existence of resolute, faithful young men prepared to defend to the death the civilized against the barbaric.

Enter Kendrick Castillo.

Castillo is the young man who bum-rushed one of the shooters who opened fire on their Colorado charter school and their 1800 classmates.

Kendrick Castillo took a bullet in the chest and laid down his life to save the lives of an incalculable number of others.

“I wish he had gone and hid, but that’s not his character,” said Castillo’s father. But, he went on, “His character is about protecting people, helping people.”

I wish we could bottle and sell whatever it was Kendrick Castillo’s parents did to raise such a courageous young man.
