Jerry Bowyer: Toward a Principled Conservatism

There seems to be a verbal civil war of sorts brewing over control of the Republican Party, and like any civil war, it pits brother against brother. The Powerbrokers of the GOP establishment face off against the Populists: power vs. populism.

Let me suggest we follow another “P”—principles.

We should unite around the fundamental principles of constitutionalism and ordered liberty, not around any particular personality, nor around the donor class or the party apparatus. We should instead unite around the founding ideas of America. We should support candidates who support the constitution and are conservative—whatever their previous or current relationship with or assessment of President Trump.

Let’s have no loyalty tests other than the constitutional one. We conservatives rightly condemned purges and purity spirals from the left, so let’s not imitate the worst in our opponents.

Albert Mohler: The Legacy of Attorney General William Barr

Attorney General William Barr has announced that he is resigning, effective December 23rd.

He will go down in history as both the 77th and the 85th Attorney General of the United States.

He was a very loyal attorney general—but it’s also clear that he got crosswise with President Trump.

Attorney General Barr is going to be known in history for his defense of religious liberty in the face of an in increasingly hostile secular culture.

In October of 2019, the Attorney General delivered an address at the University of Notre Dame. “The framers’ view,” he said, “was that free government was only suitable and sustainable for a religious people, a people who recognize that there was a transcendent moral order antecedent to both the state and man-made law.”

He’s referring to an enduring moral law that exists even before the US Constitution.

Those were fighting words from a sitting Attorney General.

Attorney General William Barr will be missed.

Owen Strachan: Twitter Has an Obligation to Protect Free Speech

It’s now become a normal event on Twitter. President Trump tweets something about election results, and Twitter leadership attaches a disclaimer to it: “This claim about election results is disputed.”

Most everyone is aware that the President has a lively presence on social media. Every citizen in this country is free to evaluate the President’s claims as they see fit. But Twitter should not be moderating the President’s tweets. Doing so is a weakening of free speech.

Twitter is a publicly held company but is still free to set its own rules. That does not mean that they don’t have a responsibility to promote free speech. Like higher education institutions, liberty either flourishes or goes to die in such settings.

Twitter should not act as the President’s self-appointed Big Brother. Twitter should let free speech be free, and leave it to citizens to figure out the rest.
