Michael Medved: Why Democrats Want Impeachment Delays

The new year brings new questions about the Democratic Party and its impeachment obsession. After urgent demands for Trump’s immediate removal, Democrats suddenly slowed down the impeachment process—delaying a Senate trial and hoping to stretch out that proceeding to the beginning of 2020’s primary season.

The Dems mean to focus relentlessly on Trump’s alleged unfitness for office, to keep attention away from their own radical agenda. They know public opinion may be closely divided on the president himself, but big majorities oppose such Democratic priorities as outlawing private health insurance, racial reparations for slavery, tax hikes, open borders, canceled college debt, and the job-killing Green New Deal.

The Democrats know that if they make the election a referendum on Trump’s polarizing personality they could possibly win. But: a pitch for votes based on their stridently progressive platform would lose in a landslide.

Hugh Hewitt: In Appreciation of the “Trump Judges”

Conservatives—and, in particular, Evangelicals—who minimize the importance of President Trump’s judicial appointments betray a naivete about the growing perils to religious liberty in our country today.

Too many do not grasp the sheer number of cases on the religious clauses of the First Amendment that have reached the high court in recent years.

The Hobby Lobby decision in 2014 and the Masterpiece Cake decision of 2018 are perhaps the highest profile of the enormously important decisions we’ve seen.

And the cases keep coming:

The court has recently agreed to review decisions by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit on the ability of two Catholic schools in California to operate out of Christian conviction.

The answer from the court will be crucial to the future of religious education across the country.

For those whose faith is crucial to their lives, the “Trump judges” make all the difference in the world.

Albert Mohler: As the Year 2020 Begins

Like a pristine new calendar, the Year 2020 begins without a blemish, but all too soon it will be recorded as history. We know this much: 2020 will bring a national election to the United States, and the race for president will be the main story of the year. By the end of 2020, we will know a very great deal about the political future of the United States. We already know how much is at stake.

The year will bring achievements and set-backs, storms and earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars. Millions of babies will be born worldwide in 2020, and we can only imagine the world they will know decades from now. There will be weddings and funerals and holidays and ordinary days—good days and hard days.

There will be 366 days in 2020—one extra day in February. Make every day count. May 2020 bring you and yours abundant blessings and many good days.

Happy New Year from Townhall.com.

Albert Mohler: 2019 A Strange Year of Dids and Didn’ts

2019 was a year marked by what did happen … and by what didn’t.

The year did begin with a massive budget showdown and a government shutdown. It didn’t end that way, and instead Republicans and Democrats joined together in a massive increase in federal spending. It was a year that saw a 16-year-old Swedish climate activist declare herself a child and demand that world leaders and the United Nations give her a platform. They did.

It was the year that one of the most historic symbols of Western civilization, Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral, did burn. But, it didn’t fall.

It was the year that something like 27 Democrats did start running for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Some of them will make it to the first votes in Iowa, others already didn’t.

It was the year that the House of Representatives did vote to impeach President Trump.

But when it came time to forward the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial, Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn’t, or at least, hasn’t.

Altogether, it was a strange year of dids and didn’ts.

In any event, it is now history.
