AZ Gun Store Owner Responds to Beto’s ‘Hell Yes’ by Offering ‘Beto Specials’ – and Sells out of AR-15s, AK-47s

Beto O’Rourke’s controversial plan to take away certain types of guns should he become elected president has turned out to be as motivating -if not more so – for gun owners than President Barack Obama’s anti-gun stances.

At last week’s Democratic debate, O’Rourke said “Hell yes” in response to ABC News debate moderator David Muir’s question about whether or not he was going to take away people’s guns:

MUIR: Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have gone further. You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

In response to Beto’s declaration, one gun store owner in Arizona decided to offer a ‘Beto Special’ on AR-15s and AK-47s – and the response was overwhelming:

When O’Rourke made the claim during Thursday night’s Democrat presidential candidate debate, Alpha Dog Firearms Owner Matt Boggs was outraged, he says in an interview with The HolloNet:

“I saw the comments that he made, and I was kinda like, ‘You know what: the Hell with this guy.’”

Boggs said O’Rourke’s made [him] determined to sell more guns – even if it meant losing money on them. So, the next morning he announced his “Beto Specials” on AR15 and AK47 rifles on his store’s Facebook page:

That evening, the store announced that they had sold out in less than four hours:

UPDATE: SOLD OUT. More deals will be on the website soon. Y’all broke our internet today!!!

Our $349.99 AR deal sold out in less than 4 hours. We’re trying to process the orders and work on getting more special deals for our good friend gun grabber Beto

As Beto gets louder on this issue, look for more gun specials from gun store owners, and a higher demand for the types of weapons he wants to confiscate. As we learned during the Obama administration, tacking to the far left on gun control usually means increased sales at gun stores. These types of threats typically have a galvanizing effect on gun owners and spurs them them to stock up.

This is most certainly not what Beto O’Rourke intended when he announced his gun confiscation policy, but that is what happens when you’re someone like Beto who doesn’t think your policies through.

Snopes.com Lies and Creates Fake News About the Felicity Huffman School Bribery Case

Westlake Legal Group felicity-huffman-620x317 Snopes.com Lies and Creates Fake News About the Felicity Huffman School Bribery Case tanya mcdowell Snopes.com Snopes Politics Media Front Page Stories Felicity Huffman Featured Story fake news douchebaggery democrats crime Connecticut College Cheating Scandal California Allow Media Exception

FILE – In this Jan. 16, 2006 file photo, Felicity Huffman wears a Marchesa gown at the 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. The luxe womenswear brand Marchesa may not survive the horrors of Harvey Weinstein, the estranged husband of co-founder Georgina Chapman. The company on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018, canceled its scheduled Feb. 14 show at New York Fashion Week after a decade of presenting collections there. And there’s been a Marchesa blackout on red carpets as awards season winds down. (AP Photo/Kevork Djansezian, File)

On Friday, has-been actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced to two weeks in federal prison. Her crime, such as it was, was to donate some $15K to a “charitable foundation” (astonishingly the foundation did not have Clinton in the name). The “donation” actually paid for a ringer to take the SAT on behalf of Huffman’s daughter to enable her to get into an selective college. And Huffman pocketed a tax write off. I was not one of the ones cheering about this. My first thought was “great, this means that real crime has been eradicated and now we’re down to using federal law enforcement for virtue signaling.” Just the exposure, by itself, destroyed Huffman’s relationship with her kids, probably prevented the daughter she tried to help from ever getting into any real college and shamed her for life by her name being connected to the scandal. Huffman should have been hit by a civil IRS lien for the 15K and that should have been it. I feel this way about everyone involved in this. The parents are shamed, the kids are shamed even among their friends, they will carry this scarlet letter forever, the coaches are out of work forever, the scammers have been exposed. That is justice. But that is not the society which we have built.

I was raised in a fairly down-in-the-heels section of Virginia. It was a place where the social class structure was pretty damned rigid and it was accepted that those “with” would always stick together to the disadvantage of those “without.” As I’ve recounted several times, my options upon finishing high school were chopping tobacco, working in a furniture mill, or working in a textile factory…or getting the hell out of Dodge. Much to my surprise other supposedly smart folks were shocked to learn that wealthy people and connected people actually used connections and broke rules to help their kids get a leg up. They labored under the illusion that Chelsea Clinton and her ilk were some kind of virtuosos who just stumbled into their 6-figure jobs fresh out of an elite college because they were just so damned smart and talented. These are the people who were shocked and offended by this college scandal. Bottom line, I don’t have the time and energy to care what a handful of rich people to to advance their whelps into the upper classes. This has no impact on me or mine. This is not who we are.

But the great thing about America is that there is virtually no social ill that cannot somehow be contorted enough to become an example of racism.

If everything it racism then this is definitely your story: A wealthy white woman gets two-weeks for her role in a cheating scandal and a poor black woman gets 5 years for enrolling her kid in a different school district. And if you are sufficiently woke, this is freakin catnip.

Then Snopes got into the act. Snopes, if you aren’t familiar with their work, is the highly woke fact checking website that is currently engaged in some kind of vendetta with the satire website Babylon Bee. This is their rating.

The problem is that this is not merely false, it is an outright lie.

Here are the facts.

McDowell, who claimed she was homeless, was arrested for larceny after she signed an affidavit attesting to her residency at a different address to enroll her kid in a different school district. Reading between the lines here, this sounds like McDowell was a pain in the butt to the public housing development where she lived and they used the fraudulent affidavit as a reason to evict her (or ban her from the premises because the story is convoluted). The cops just became the pivot man in this circle jerk.

The police investigation into the residency began in January after Norwalk Housing Authority attorney Donna Lattarulo filed a complaint alleging McDowell registered her son at Brookside, but actually lived in an apartment on Priscilla Street in Bridgeport.

As part of the evidence presented in the complaint, police received an affidavit of residency signed by McDowell and dated last September attesting that she lived in the Roodner Court public housing complex on Ely Ave.

Before this charge was acted on, other things happened.

Several weeks later, she was arrested for selling drugs to Norwalk undercover officers on five occasions in Norwalk and Bridgeport.

When she was picked up on the drug charges, police found her in front of Brookside Elementary School holding 30 small bags of marijuana and 23 small bags of crack cocaine, prosecutor Tiffany Lockshier said during her sentencing hearing.

In Bridgeport, McDowell pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of sale of narcotics to undercover officers in Bridgeport and when she is sentenced on March 27, faces up to five years in jail for those convictions.

Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. I’ll say it again. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school.

When she appeared in court she pleaded guilty to the drug charges and entered an Alford plea to the larceny charge. The judge made it clear that he was sentencing her based on the drug deal alone:

That case drew protests by residents and civil rights groups who claimed McDowell was being persecuted for her attempt to get a better education for her son.

[Superior Court Judge Frank] Iannotti retorted Tuesday that the Norwalk case had nothing to do with why McDowell was before him.

“This case is about the convictions for the sale of narcotics to an undercover police officer,” the judge said. “I think you understand that because that is really the essence of what has gotten you into the predicament you find yourself today.”

On the two counts of sale of narcotics, the judge then sentenced her to 12 years, suspended after she serves five years and followed by five years probation. The sentence is to run concurrently with a five-year sentence she received in the Norwalk case.

“When you are released, go back to doing an honest living and become a role model for your son,” the judge added.

The Snopes fact check is simply a lie. Period. Full stop. Felicity Huffman got two weeks in prison for cheating to get her kid into a good school. McDowell got five years for selling narcotics in a school zone. These are not the same thing. They aren’t even in the same universe of criminal acts.

Sad to say, this is not unusual behavior for Snopes. One hopes this noxious bunch of self-righteous, if deeply dishonest, twits gets put out of business. And soon. Because they are the real problem with #FakeNews on the internet.

Meet Andrew McCabe’s Laughable “Character Witnesses”

Westlake Legal Group andrew-mccabe-caricature-620x443 Meet Andrew McCabe’s Laughable “Character Witnesses” swamp Susan Rice Politics Laughable John Brennan james comey James Clapper IG Report Front Page Stories Front Page fired Featured Story FBI Eric Holder doj democrats corruption Character Witnesses Andrew McCabe

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest news on Andrew McCabe, you know that he’s now facing prosecution for “lacking candor” (lying) to the FBI. In what was the first shoe to drop within the Comey cabal, McCabe’s last minute appeal to not have the law applied to him failed. Keep in mind, lying to the FBI is the same law he, Comey, and Mueller relentlessly used to bludgeon others into submission.

But these people feel like they are part of a special class, and who could blame them? For as long as they’ve been in government, they’ve gotten to play by different rules. Naturally, that means the swamp is going to try to circle the wagons and McCabe has some “character witnesses” he’d like you to meet.

NEW: If Andrew McCabe ultimately does face charges, he’ll have some big names lined up as character witnesses. Over a dozen high-ranking ex-officials have committed to defending him, including Eric Holder, John Brennan, James Clapper and Susan Rice. https://t.co/i6j2G8ctfK

— Natasha Bertrand (@NatashaBertrand) September 16, 2019

This per Politico.

A cavalcade of Obama-era national security leaders have committed to testify on behalf of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should he face trial over allegations that he misled officials about leaks to the media.

The lineup, detailed in a legal analysis from McCabe’s legal team, the substance of which was provided to the Justice Department, includes a string of former senior officials.

Here’s a good, concise response to this madness.

There is no doubt McCabe broke the law. The Inspector General found ample evidence he lied to investigators in his dealings with leaks to the press. In fact, his story was in direct contradiction to James Comey, which means Comey may be forced to testify against him to avoid charges himself.

Despite the clearness of the situation, these Obama officials are ready to rally around him. Doesn’t that tell us all we need to know about their corruption? That not even a non-partisan IG report from an Obama appointee (IG Horowitz) is enough for them to abandon someone like McCabe? Opposing Trump, even if one is a criminal, covers all sins.

Honestly, I’m thinking these four vouching for McCabe in court only makes things worse for him. They are a group of proven liars. Prosecutors would have a field day with them.

The Culture Wars #118: Offensive Hamburgers and Transgender Animals

Westlake Legal Group SocialJustice-300x126 The Culture Wars #118: Offensive Hamburgers and Transgender Animals Uncategorized Front Page Stories

Welcome to another week on our march to Armageddon, otherwise known as the culture wars.  Here are seven stories that may or may not have made headlines here at Redstate.

Attacking a Bull

A Texan by the name of Tevon Varlack, age 42, attacked the famous bull statue on Wall Street with a banjo shouting “F!@# Trump.”  He managed to damage one of the bull’s horns before being stopped.  The bull, of course, is a symbol of a healthy, growing economy, but apparently even this upsets our friends on the Left and their hopeless allies elsewhere.  Given his sociopathic history, he is clearly a member of the Left.

Lefty Hypocrisy in Congress

Congresscritter John Lewis (D-GA) filed a new bill with Congress- the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund Act which would permit taxpayers who object to war to dedicate their taxes to a separate fund for non-military purposes.  Ironically, or not, Lewis also joined 106 other Democrats in 2016 urging President Trump to repeal the Hyde Amendment which protects taxpayers from funding abortion.  Hence, in the mind of the Lefty: killing babies- good; killing America’s enemies- bad.

Killing the HAMburger

Everyone knows the venerated hamburger is living on borrowed time.  The climate change hysterics are against eating meat unless it is some form of insect.  But, Burger King in South Africa is going a different route by not using the “ham” part of “hamburger” in their menu choice.  It has nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with not offending Muslims.  Apparently, Burger King in South Africa believes Muslims are not intelligent enough to understand that hamburgers contain no ham.  Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations…

And Now…Transgender Penguins

Sea Life London announced that a lesbian penguin couple will adopt and raise a genderless “chick.”  The purpose is to study its personality without “pre-conceived gender roles.”  One supposes it a blessing in disguise that penguins and not humans are involved in this act of depraved social engineering.  Next up?  Perhaps the London Geological Society will run an experiment to determine if rocks are gender fluid.

Thou Shall Be Erased From Memory

In 2018, John Schattner, the CEO of Papa John’s pizza, committed the ultimate blasphemy- he used the “N” word.  Mind you: he did not call anyone that word.  Instead, he denounced people who used the word but had spoken the word when talking about others who said the word.  The crazies in State College, PA have voted 6-3 NOT to use Papa John pizza in the school district for pizza days.  Mr. Schattner must first be “unpersoned” by the thought police.  Instead, Dominos got the contract even though Papa John’s submitted a lower bid.  Your tax money at work.

Moving the Voting Age

According to the crazies at Vox, the United States should abolish voting ages and allow anyone “capable” of filling out a ballot vote in all elections.  Um…put a crayon in the hand of an infant and it is “capable” of filling out a ballot.  Lowering the voting age to 16 is a bad enough suggestion, but anyone?  Folks- these are the people who also eat Tide pods!

A Transgender Dress Code

Possibly coming to a school near you soon, one school in Lewes, England is forbidding girls from wearing the grey pleated skirts which have been a tradition since the school had a dress code which is…like, forever.  Instead, they are now mandated to wear grey “gender-neutral” slacks along with the boys so as not to offend the possibly transgender kid in the school. School officials could not determine if they have any transgender students to offend, but that did not stop them from calling the police to deal with the 50 or so girls who showed up in skirts.

Well, that’s it for another week of this sad saga of craziness.  This episode was brought to you by Maytag- “our repairmen are the loneliest guys in town.”

Writers of NYT’s Hit Piece On Kavanaugh: They Included Exculpatory Information, Editors Removed It

Westlake Legal Group Kavanaugh-4 Writers of NYT’s Hit Piece On Kavanaugh: They Included Exculpatory Information, Editors Removed It Robin Pogrebin New York Times correction Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism Lawrence O'Donnell Kate Kelly Justice Brett Kavanaugh Front Page Stories Featured Story fake news donald trump democrats corruption Chuck Ross Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

New York Times reporters and authors of the new book entitled “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, appeared on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show, MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” last night to address the media storm sparked by their latest hit piece on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Considering O’Donnell himself was recently exposed for reporting fake news, the women certainly chose a sympathetic venue.

For anyone who may have missed this story, Pogrebin and Kelly revived the now debunked story that Kavanaugh, as an undergraduate student at Yale, had exposed himself to a freshman girl at a wild college party. They alleged that this incident had been corroborated. However, the woman, now 53, has no recollection of this episode and refuses to be interviewed. Pogrebin and Kelly wrote:

We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.

Forced to set the record straight, The New York Times issued a correction:

An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.

Pogrebin and Kelly claim that this exculpatory information was included in their original draft, and “may have been removed from the original draft in the editing process.” The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross provided a clip from the program which aired last night. Ross writes, “Plot thickens. Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly claim that the qualifier about the other alleged Kavanaugh accuser not remembering an incident at Yale was included in the initial NYT draft but removed.”

Here are their remarks (emphasis mine):

O’Donnell: In your draft of the article, did it include those words that have since been added to the article?

Pogrebin and Kelly: It did.

O’Donnell: So somewhere in the editing process, those words were trimmed.

Pogrebin: Yeah, I think what happened actually was that, we have her name, and the Times doesn’t usually include the name of the victim. So, I think, in this case, the editors felt it was better to remove it and in removing her name, they removed the other reference to the fact that she didn’t remember it.

O’Donnell: So, in your draft for the Times, you used basically the exact words that are in the book, that deliberately left off the name, because that passage begins with the name and so, in their removal of the name, they ended up removing (inaudible). (He is abruptly cut off by Pogrebin.)

Pogrebin: The whole sentence. So I think it was just sort of an editing, you know, done in the haste in the editing process.

O’Donnell: Were you involved in the decision to amend this and do the correction – the addition online to the piece?

Pogrebin: We discussed it. We felt like there was so much heat, there’s so much – everyone has been seizing on various aspects of this that we certainly didn’t want it to be an issue anymore and we certainly never intended to mislead in any way. We wanted to give as full of a story as possible.

It’s pretty hard to buy this story. It’s impossible to know if the writers excluded the crucial information in their original draft or if they had included it and the editors removed it. But, either way, the omission of the exculpatory evidence from this story was intentional. Their goal is to inflict maximum damage on Justice Kavanaugh so that, if he ever does “take a scalpel” to Roe vs. Wade, they can use this story to discredit him.

The Democrats have been especially brutal in their coverage of the President lately. Their reporting is always negative, but recently, it seems to have become more savage than ever.

Here are several examples. Last week, CNN reported that a spy had to be extracted from Russia because Trump had been reckless with highly classified information. This news was proven false. The CIA took the unusual step of setting the record straight. Lawrence O’Donnell reported the fake news that Trump’s Deutsche Bank loans had been cosigned by Russian oligarchs, a fake story he was forced to apologize for. Based upon an irresponsible editorial in the Washington Post last week, Rachel Maddow reported that Trump is slow walking $250 million in aid to Ukraine until they agree to help him win the 2020 election by damaging Joe Biden’s campaign. House Democrats are reviving their “impeachment inquiry” that’s not really an impeachment inquiry, but an effort to obtain the grand jury information from the Mueller report. And now, the media is trying to resurrect their bogus and outrageous allegations against Justice Kavanaugh.

This avalanche of fake news smacks of desperation and it makes me wonder. Are they trying to get ahead of the release of the DOJ IG report on alleged FISA abuse, which is expected to be damning?

Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites

Westlake Legal Group linda-sarsour-620x414 Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites Women's March Tamika Mallory racists Politics New Anti-Semites media bias Louis Farrakhan Linda Sarsour Israel Hired Front Page Stories Front Page fired Featured Story democrats board members

It’s almost like the organization itself has issues and their connections to anti-Semitism haven’t just been mistakes?

As my colleague Brandon Morse shared earlier today, the Women’s March, famous for their delusional hatred of Trump and vaginal hats, finally cut ties with Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory (among others). The former board members had carried with them a long history of anti-Semitism and support for radical ideologies. Sarsour is of course a “Palestinian activist,” which means she rails against Jews and shills for Hamas. Mallory’s ties centered on Louis Farrakhan, where as recently as this year she refused to condemn his vile, racist rhetoric.

So what’s the Women’s March do after kicking out a group of women famous for their anti-Semitism? Hire more anti-Semites of course.

Bonus points for supporting Hamas I guess.

And just to be safe, they also brought on Sarsour ally Samia Assed, who’s shilled for Palestinian terrorists and doesn’t think Israel has a right to exist.

Oh, but it doesn’t stop there. The brilliant hires just kept on coming.

Apparently being a rabid anti-Semite and a fan of Louis Farahkan is a prerequisite for being on the board of the Women’s March. Clearly, they weren’t serious about reforming their dumpster fire of a movement. The best thing that could happen is for it shut down completely. The country is a better place given their loss of influence over the last few years.

Meanwhile, you won’t hear a peep about any of this in the major press despite the fact that they ran non-stop live coverage anytime there was a march by these people in the past. Imagine if a tea party group brought on a bunch of open white supremacists. You think CNN would mention it? You bet they would.

California Passes Legislation Forcing All Public Universities to Provide Abortion Pills

On Friday, California made a considerable stride in the effort to mix social politics and public education: It passed a bill mandating every state-sponsored university to provide students with abortion pills.

Meet bill SB-24:

Because abortion by medication techniques is both a recognized treatment for the medical condition of pregnancy and a health service every pregnant person in the state has the legal right to choose, it is the intent of the Legislature that public university student health centers make abortion by medication techniques as accessible and cost effective for students as possible … On and after January 1, 2023, each public university student health center shall offer abortion by medication techniques onsite. This service may be performed by providers on staff at the student health center, through telehealth services, or by providers associated with a contracted external agency.

But the legislation has yet to be signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Can you guess whether he’ll push such a proposal into law? Let’s peer into the mind of the governor…

You're an idiot and a bigot Donald J. Trump

Posted by Gavin Newsom on Sunday, June 5, 2016

And the LA Times recently ran “California Gov. Gavin Newsom Calls for Nationwide Background Checks on Ammo Purchases.”

Give up?

He’s for it.

Gavin’s already supported a previous version of the bill. In 2018, as noted by The Daily Wire, he told the San Francisco Chronicle, “I would have supported that. I have long supported that. I subscribe to Planned Parenthood and NARAL’s position on that.”

As reported by The Daily Mail, SB-24 creator Connie Leyva championed the state’s attention to women’s health:

“In a time when states across our country are rolling back women’s healthcare and access to abortion, California continues to lead the nation to protect every individual’s right to choose…SB-24 reaffirms the right of every college student to access abortion. By ensuring that abortion care is available on campus, college students will not have to choose between delaying important medical care or having to travel long distances or miss classes or work.”

California’s not only offering abortion, but it’s virtually delivering it to the door of the country’s future. And thus continues the state’s pioneering role in a national move to the Left.

Of course, Georgia and Alabama have a few things to say about that.

It’s A Miracle: Ilhan Omar Has A New Jobs Plan That Will Pay For Itself!

Rp. Ilhan Omar has co-sponsored a bill called the Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act with Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) which, according to the ladies, will provide a job with a living wage and benefits to “anyone who wants one.” Sen Cory Booker is the Senate champion of the bill.

The Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act  would guarantee that adults in participating communities who want to work can do so, in a job that pays a living wage and provides benefits like health insurance, paid sick leave, and paid family leave. When it was originally introduced in 2018, this was the first federal jobs guarantee legislation ever to be introduced in Congress.

That’s ambitious,” CNN host Erin Burnett told Omar when asking her about the legislation. “It would cost a lot of money.” (It’s estimated, according to Grabien founder Tom Elliot, to eventually cost $543 billion per year.)

How, Burnett wonders, does she plan on paying for it?

“Ultimately when these jobs are created and people are place in these jobs, it will pay for itself,” the totally serious member of Congress responded. Watch the full exchange at the twitter link above.

Pope Francis Condemns Life Imprisonment – Everyone Has the ‘Right to Hope’

Westlake Legal Group notre-dame-cathedral-2246551_1280-620x412 Pope Francis Condemns Life Imprisonment – Everyone Has the ‘Right to Hope’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories

 

 

On Saturday, Pope Francis took opposition to the death penalty a step further: the Leader of the Catholic Church explained that life imprisonment is wrong.

Everyone has the right to hope, he asserted, and a lifetime of incarceration takes that away:

“It is up to every society…to ensure that the penalty does not compromise the right to hope, that prospects for reconciliation and reintegration are guaranteed.”

As relayed by the Catholic News Agency, the Pope insisted that a life term is a problem rather than a solution:

“Life imprisonment is not the solution to problems — I repeat: Life imprisonment is not the solution to problems, but a problem to be solved.”

Francis suggested the plight of criminals mirrors the trajectory of society:

“[I]f hope is closed in a cell, there is no future for society. Never deprive one of the right to start over.”

The bishop of Rome also had a message for those living behind bars:

“You who are detained are important to God, who wants to do wonders in you. Have courage because you are in the heart of God; you are precious in his eyes, and even if you feel lost and unworthy, do not lose heart. God is greater than our hearts.”

As noted by The Daily Wire, this isn’t the first time Francis has spoken out against life sentences. In 2014, he called the practice “a hidden death penalty.”

Perhaps it is, and maybe it does indeed murder hope; but do some criminals who’ve done similarly to their fellow man deserve such a fate?

Not all clergy have been happy with this most recent pope’s sensibilities: As I covered in February, an ex-Vatican cardinal released a 4-page “Manifest of Faith” in protest of a burgeoning liberal Church disposition (here).

However, Francis hasn’t been shy about his more conservative attitudes, either: In May, he compared abortion to “hiring a hitman” to kill a baby (here).

Some believe it’s a contradiction for conservatives to be both anti-abortion and pro-death penalty. The Pope’s runnin’ on dual cylinders.

With the combo, it would seem he’s giving both sides something to like.

Perhaps, effectively, he’s following a bit of the Apostle Paul’s directive: “Be all things to all people.”

But when it comes to the lengths of sentences, how does the justice system protect the citizenry without being able to keep locked up those would otherwise do great harm?
