David Davenport: The Death Penalty: Who Decides?

Liberals have used the courts for decades to carry out their agenda of social change. From Roe vs. Wade’s constitutional right to abortion to the more recent protection of same-sex marriage, courts have become an engine of social change.

The death penalty seems to be the next target for social change, either through the courts or by governors. When the U.S. Department of Justice recently announced it would resume carrying out the federal death penalty, presidential candidate Kamala Harris attacked it as “immoral and deeply flawed” while Joe Biden reversed yet one more long-held position and said it was wrong.

Meanwhile in California, even though voters twice upheld the death penalty, Governor Gavin Newsom has suspended it.

Questions like the death penalty should be decided by the people and their elected representatives, not by elite courts and lone ranger governors who think they know better.

Hugh Hewitt: Exploiting the Nation’s Shock and Fear

The aftermath of the recent mass murders was a revealing one for today’s Democratic Party.

Indeed, almost all the leading Democratic candidates for president chose in the week following the horrors in El Paso and Dayton to pivot their main message from “Trump and Russia” to “Trump and racism.” At least five candidates went so far as to brand President Trump as a, believe it or not, white supremacist.

It’s repulsive rhetoric. It’s the “basket of deplorables” talk on steroids, and it says to every Trump supporter: “You, too, are a white supremacist.”

I don’t believe Trump is a racist, much less a white supremacist. This sort of rhetoric is incendiary and dangerous. It’s also politically self-destructive and so absurd as to be laughable but for its repetition.

But the Democratic candidates do not wish to argue, debate and persuade. They wish to smear and exclude. They have exploited the nation’s shock and fear to do so.

They should turn back.
