Removal would be insane

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

It's easy to forget what the Senate impeachment trial is supposed to be about.

It's not a fight over whether the Senate will call a couple of witnesses that the House couldn't, or didn't bother to, obtain on its own.

The underlying question is whether the United States Senate will impose the most severe sanction it has ever inflicted on any ...Read more

Historians roast New York Time's feature on slavery in the U.S.

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

The reviews of the 1619 Project are in. It is "a very unbalanced, one-sided account." It is "wrong in so many ways." It is "not only ahistorical," but "actually anti-historical." It is "a tendentious and partial reading of American history."

This is what top historians have said of the splashy New York Times feature on slavery in the U.S. that ...Read more
