    As state legislatures undergo their makeovers, the public turns against the death penalty, and political leaders voice their capital punishment concerns, we should expect to see even more from Republican officials. Republicans will likely continue to sponsor repeal bills with increasing frequency and reverse the flawed criminal justice policies once advocated by their ideological predecessors of the 1980s and 1990s.

    Richard Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ, says the president certainly bears his share of responsibility in the Alabama outcome. "... He weighed in for Senator Luther Strange and should have supported the principled, limited constitutional government candidate Congressman Mo Brooks, a member of the Freedom Caucus," says Viguerie. "And he could have won that easily."

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Trump has Fox News and fighting congressmen behind him and the mainstream media is deeply distrusted and widely detested. And there is no Democratic House to impeach him or Democratic Senate to convict him. Moreover, Trump is not Nixon, who, like Charles I, accepted his fate and let the executioner’s sword fall with dignity. If Trump goes, one imagines, he will not go quietly.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    What we are witnessing as these embarrassing documents, emails and texts continue to be extracted from a reluctant -- and therefore self-incriminating -- Justice Department is the emergence of a veritable FBI Ship of Fools with Captain Mueller at the helm, a man we repeatedly have to be told is above reproach, a Raleigh for our times, but is seeming more of a cross between Ahab and Queeg.

    Why should Trump ever consider pruning back his controversial tweets or confining them to the reportage of his daily achievements, in the manner of every other mostly boring politician? Because personal dueling with journalists, celebrities, and politicians is not only becoming superfluous, but it is now distracting Trump’s audiences from a growing record of achievement. Trump has outgrown the Twitter wars. He should now just declare victory, retire as Twitter champ, hang up his tweeting gloves, and leave the slap-down ring for others.

    As conservatives, it’s vital that we also do some screening of our own. After all, the last thing we want to do is inadvertently turn down a Darwinian not-a-through-street and spawn more liberals. I'm out of the dating game but let me try to help out you singleberries with some questions to assist you in detecting any right-swipes who are actually covert leftist weirdos, losers, and/or mutations.

  • Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

    The Supreme Court recently heard oral argument in Carpenter v. U.S. about whether the Fourth Amendment protects cell phone data held by the phone companies. The case has potentially major implications for privacy in the digital age. The original meaning of the Constitution can or should apply to today’s technology and media. Information is as dear and valuable as any paper or other possession, and seems to be compatible with the original meaning of "effect" in the Fourth Amendment.

  • Scott McKay, The American Spectator

    This entire debacle was an exercise in denying the people what they wanted, not to mention attempting to cover up their own mistakes. That NRSC chairman Cory Gardner, McConnell, and the rest of the Establishment mouthpieces have fanned out across the media spectrum to tell GOP voters of the virtues of Tuesday night’s result is perfect evidence of this. This debacle constitutes a betrayal, witting or otherwise, of Republican voters and donors alike, and it’s time for McConnell to step down as the majority leader.

  • Jordan Gehrke, The Federalist

    Because of the toxicity of the GOP establishment brand today, meddling in primaries actually makes it more likely, not less likely that bad candidates will win primaries in the future. Instead of primaries being about the candidates and their flaws, going forward, they will be about Mitch McConnell and K Street as long as he publicly interferes. The question now is: will McConnell learn this lesson? How many more seats do we have to lose?

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    We’re not asserting that the Trump-Russia investigation is an especially political one. We’re also not saying the president should fire Mueller, which would be both unjustified and politically disastrous, inviting impeachment. The lesson is that politics creeps into federal law enforcement and intelligence, and it is disingenuous and usually partisan dishonesty to suggest that it's not so or doesn't matter.

  • L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

    It's apparently distasteful to report that among the 15 Mueller lawyers, nine are Democratic donors — several of whom contributed to Clinton's 2016 campaign. This information isn't disturbing to the "objective" media. Reporting it is. There's a reason these "news" magazines have crumbled: They are only trustworthy if what you want to read is a Democratic National Committee talking-points memo.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    Ullah never would have been in our country in the first place if another of Mr. Trump’s policies were already in place. This slug of humanity arrived here as part of the “chain migration” attached to an uncle who arrived here many years ago on a “diversity visa.” Mr. Trump firmly advocates ending both “chain migration” and the “diversity visa” lottery system. Neither Ullah nor his uncle would have been here if Mr. Trump — and millions of decent, hard-working Americans — had their way.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    The establishment crowd never wanted Moore to win in the first place and found the abuse charges a convenient added reason to sabotage his campaign. Under a typhoon of negative media coverage, Moore, whose previous wins had been squeakers, needed all the help he could get. But the stupid party was too divided and dysfunctional to lend a hand. The Dems form a defensive circle around vulnerable candidates; the Republicans shoot theirs.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    Robert Mueller's legacy may not be that he welcomed in known pro-Clinton, anti-Trump attorneys to investigate the Trump 2016 campaign where there was little likelihood of criminality, but that he ignored the most egregious case of government wrongdoing in the last half-century.

  • D.C. McAllister, The Federalist

    We are not animals, ruled by appetites. We have deeper aspects of ourselves that need to be nurtured. We have a rational mind and moral conscience to inform us of what is right and what is wrong. We have a spirit that has a beauty all its own, and it’s a beauty that never diminishes, unlike the physical, which passes away too quickly.
