Biden's Unnecessary Border Crisis

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

A crisis is a terrible thing to create.

This, nonetheless, is what President Joe Biden has done at the southern border.

Alzheimer's Be Not Proud

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

Editor's note: The word "that" in the eleventh graf should be italicized.

The press has portrayed President Joe Biden's goal of reopening the majority of K-12 schools in his ...Read more

It was only a matter of time before Cicero got canceled.

The New York Times the other day profiled Princeton classicist Dan-el Padilla Peralta, who wants to destroy the study of classics as a blow for racial justice.

The critique of classics as stultifying and privileged isn't new, but in the woke era this attack is more potent than ever and ...Read more
