Death Penalty Resumes for Federal Prisoners: A.G. William Barr

We say:  thank God we have a president that seeks justice for innocent people, not the ideologues.  We still believe that the Death Penalty is a deterrent and authentic justice for all innocent Americans.  Other posts on this website reveal that ideologues like Pope Francis, Sister Helen Prejean, and the U.S. Bishops are against prison sentencing and prefer “restorative justice” that favors the criminal!

Trump Administration Resumes Federal Death Penalty, Schedules Executions for 5 Child-Killers

Attorney General William P. Barr has directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to adopt a proposed Addendum to the Federal Execution Protocol—clearing the way for the federal government to resume capital punishment after a nearly two decade lapse, and bringing justice to victims of the most horrific crimes.  The Attorney General has further directed the Acting Director of the BOP, Hugh Hurwitz, to schedule the executions of five death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society—children and the elderly.

“Congress has expressly authorized the death penalty through legislation adopted by the people’s representatives in both houses of Congress and signed by the President,” Attorney General Barr said.  “Under Administrations of both parties, the Department of Justice has sought the death penalty against the worst criminals, including these five murderers, each of whom was convicted by a jury of his peers after a full and fair proceeding.  The Justice Department upholds the rule of law—and we owe it to the victims and their families to carry forward the sentence imposed by our justice system.”

USCCB Pandering to Obama Reaps Cruel Result

By Judie Brown, President, the American Life League

EXCERPT:

Obamacare and its progeny might never have become law if the bishops, united in their resolve, had opposed it from the start and pointed out the specific flaws in what is now the law of the land.

The backstory on this most recent government requirement goes like this:  Obamacare first came to the public’s attention in 2009 as a proposal introduced in both houses of Congress.  At the time, American Life League sent out a warning aimed at Catholic charitable organizations including Catholic Charities, the Society of St. Vincent DePaul, and the Catholic Health Association—three major Catholic groups that were not only supporting the newly introduced Obamacare but that were rallying their troops to contact Congress and get involved in helping pass the proposal.

Try as we might to convince those organizations—including the USCCB—that Obamacare was fraught with problems, their support continued with the single caveat that the healthcare proposal must be “abortion neutral.”  The USCCB has argued for years that every American has a right to healthcare and that the government should be providing it, though the current law is flawed.
