Hugh Hewitt: The 2020 Election: Two Agendas

Which agenda do you prefer for the next four years?

President Trump’s? Or Joe Biden’s?

That’s a helpful way to aid voters in their choice this November.

President Trump believes in the Constitution, as proved most obviously by his two Supreme Court Justices and 53 federal circuit court judges.

Trump will continue his military buildup and his push for enforcement of rule of law—as demonstrated by Attorney General William Barr.

Trump will continue his massive deregulation of the American economy.

Biden, on the other hand, will almost certainly raise taxes—and raise them significantly.

Biden judges will be activist judges, likely seeing nothing wrong with the return of race-based rewards.

And there’s a very real potential that Biden will pack the Supreme Court—increasing the number of justices in a replay of FDR’s failed effort in 1937.

And under a Biden presidency we’ll see some sort of Green New Deal.

That’s a fair statement of the expectations.

I’m voting for Trump.

Michael Medved: Misguided Payouts Based On Ancestry, Not Actions

The current anguish over “racial justice” has been punctuated by intensifying demands for monetary reparations to the descendants of enslaved Americans.

The prospect of arranging appropriate compensation for uncompensated slave labor that ended 155 years ago remains wildly impractical, but it also goes against the nation’s highest ideals.

America has always been the land of fresh starts and new life, where you’re not judged by who your grandparents were or where they came from. To the greatest extent possible, your progress in life should reflect your own efforts, and not your family’s past.

Slavery reparations emphasize the opposite idea: assigning tax-funded payouts based not on who you are, but on who your great-great-grandparents were. Joe Biden has already expressed support for a commission to evaluate slavery reparations. If this ill-advised effort becomes a major issue in the campaign, the American people will rightly reject a program designed to accentuate, not narrow, racial differences.

Hewitt: An Impressive Record of Accomplishments


President Trump has record of accomplishments that’s pretty easy to compile.

Most significantly, he has brought the existential threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party into the sunlight.

Trump has buttressed the constitution—with two justices on the Supreme Court, 53 judges on the federal courts of appeal and over 140 district court judges.

President Trump’s tax cuts—along with his massive deregulation—led to 3.5 percent unemployment until the regime in Beijing acted with criminal recklessness towards a virus that has devastated the world.

Trump’s brawling, slugging, tempestuous approach has worn down many, but his road is marked by these accomplishments.

The elites are convinced he must be beaten. But Americans want their jobs and security back. They like the police. They like civil order.

Yes: Polling shows him behind 50-year D.C. insider Joe Biden.

We’ll see.

I feel pretty good about President Trump’s chances.
