Lanhee Chen: The Conservative Agenda After the Loss of Georgia Senate Seats

Democrats will be in control of both houses of Congress, and the White House, after Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20th and Georgia’s two new United States Senators, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, take their seats later this month.

Republicans have suffered a number of electoral setbacks—not only did they lose control of the White House, but they’ll be in the minority in both houses of Congress for the first time in a decade.

Looking ahead, Republicans will need to remain united to defeat efforts to move policy in America further to the progressive left. And they’ll need to present a compelling vision for what they’ll do if given the opportunity to govern again. The conservative movement has traditionally stood for economic opportunity, personal freedom, a strong national defense, and the value of human life. These are values that many of our fellow Americans share and should be the backbone of efforts by conservatives to lead, once again.

Hugh Hewitt: Court Packing Is a Threat to Core American Freedoms

For the good of the country, Joe Biden must clearly and definitively answer the court-packing question

The Supreme Court is now at center stage with the start of Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. The court is also now at the center of the presidential election as many Democrats demand that—if their party controls the White House and Senate after the election—the court be expanded to establish a liberal majority.

“Court packing” is now a major issue in the presidential campaign because neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris—his running mate—will say what they think about demands by their party’s radical wing to expand the court.

Court-packing is a threat to the Supreme Court and thus to every American freedom, especially religious liberty, and the Second Amendment and property rights, and the separation of powers fundamental to our republic’s durability.

The Biden-Harris ticket should publicly condemn the idea—and condemn it now.
