The storming of the Capitol, coming inauguration of Joe Biden and concerted effort to silence Donald Trump on social media has some speculating that we are on the brink of Civil War. While this may be a bit too dramatic, our political discourse is certainly at the lowest point in most of our lifetimes. Our enemies are not foreign adversaries; they are the people across the aisle.

5:00 – Lisa Mongtomery’s Impending Execution Renews Calls for Death Penalty Repeal

In 2004 Bobbie Jo Stinnett was found strangled in her home with her unborn child ripped from her womb.
