  • ‘This is why people HATE YOU.’ POLITICO’s hit piece on Hillsdale College BACKFIRES spectacularly

    You know those stories that make you roll your eyes so far back in your head you think they might get stuck there? This hot mess from POLITICO is one of those stories:From POLITICO (sorry!): Maybe you’ve never heard of Hillsdale. Or maybe you hadn’t heard about the school before it precipitated a floor fight in the Senate during tax bill negotiations last fall. But the tiny Christian college with a graduate school in statesmanship, a strong conservative bent and roots in an anti-slavery Baptist church, has long been a treasured institution in right-of-center circles—known for its required classical liberal...
  • Frederick Douglass vs. Karl Marx: who is worth celebrating, 200 years later?

    It will come as no surprise that this year Hillsdale College has chosen to commemorate the bicentennial of the birth of Frederick Douglass. Born a slave in Talbot County, Maryland, Douglass fled north to freedom in 1838. Eventually, he became a celebrated orator, and a leading figure in the abolition movement. Douglass also became a friend of Hillsdale College. He was twice an honored guest of the college. His first visit took place in January 1863, a few weeks after the final issuance of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. On that occasion, Douglass delivered an address entitled “Popular Error and Unpopular Truth.”...
  • The odd things tucked into the GOP tax plan

    Axios ^ | 12/2/17 | Haley Britzky
    The GOP tax plan was passed through the Senate Friday night in a 51-49 vote. There are a number of things included in the last-minute text, including a provision by Sen. Gardner of Colorado that exempts Kombucha, a fermented tea drink, from alcoholic taxes and regulations. Why it matters: These are small examples of what got slipped in the bill last-minute as the Senate vote neared, and reveals some of the senators' pet projects back in their home states. Odd amendments included in the tax plan: Sen. Orrin Hatch Prohibit things like cash and gift cards to be given as...
  • In Hillsdale College, a ‘Shining City on a Hill’ for Conservatives

    The New York Times ^ | FEB. 1, 2017 | ERIK ECKHOLM
    Hillsdale, a private college of 1,400 students in southern Michigan that describes itself as “nonsectarian Christian” and dedicated to “civil and religious liberty,” is scarcely known in many circles. But among erudite conservatives — think progeny of William F. Buckley Jr. — it is considered a hidden gem. What they admire is the college’s concentration on the Western philosophical and literary canon (sometimes disparaged as the Great Books of dead white men) and its reverent treatment of the American founding documents as the political culmination of that tradition — a tradition that scholars at Hillsdale say has been desecrated by...
  • Liberals Panicking Over Trump’s Possible Education Secretary Pick!

    Political Insider ^ | November 18, 2016 | Walter White
    Over the past week, liberals have been freaking out over the different members announced for President-elect Donald Trump’s administration. From Steve Bannnon to General Michael Flynn, the left has been in panic mode over what they consider inappropriate picks for the White House. Well, one man whose name has just been floated as a possible pick for Department of Education is none other than Larry Arnn, president of the conservative Hillsdale College. Hillsdale College, as most of you know, accepts no federal money, and therefore is the antithesis to everything liberals believe, so Arnn’s potential role in the Trump administration...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas urged college graduates who seek to "preserve liberty" to do so by fulfilling the duties of their daily vocations rather than attempting to achieve sweeping political goals. "At the risk of understating what is necessary to preserve liberty in our form of government, I think more and more that it depends on good citizens, discharging their daily duties in their daily obligations," Thomas said Saturday during a commencement address at Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in Michigan.

    U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is set to deliver the 2016 commencement address to the graduating class of Hillsdale College on Saturday, May 14. This will mark one of the few times that Justice Thomas has spoken publicly since the surprising death of Justice Antonin Scalia back in February of this year. Statistics show that conservative leaning speakers such as Justice Thomas are becoming increasingly rare at graduation ceremonies around the country. According to Campus Reform, out of the top 100 universities, 40 of them are featuring explicitly liberal speakers at their commencement ceremonies. Only 10 are hosting...

    ... It looks like the Trump body snatching virus I wrote about last month is spreading again. For a moment, after Wisconsin, it seemed like it might be going into remission. Nope, it’s actually spiking. Last night the New York Post endorsed Donald Trump. After I criticized the editorial on Twitter, a Trump supporter tweeted at me “No Goldberg, you are wrong. Support the front runner and stop trying to burn the party. Unite it.” ...

    The College Fix ^ | 09/25/2015 | VIVIAN HUGHBANKS
    Hillsdale, Grove City colleges among those snubbed by Department of Education The new “College Scorecard” released by the Department of Education and the White House that ranks universities excluded several institutions widely considered among the best conservative colleges in the nation: Hillsdale and Grove City colleges. The feds claimed Hillsdale, which offers a traditional liberal arts curriculum grounded in Judeo-Christian and Greco-Roman traditions, does not grant enough bachelor degrees to be ranked, while Grove City – a staunchly Christian institution – was snubbed because it refuses federal funding. The “College Scorecard” was released last week and is a collection of...
  • Obama administration: Conservative college isn’t a real school

    Personal Liberty ^ | 09/25/2015
    Hillsdale College, a 135-year-old liberal arts school in Michigan, eschews federal financial aid and provides students with an education steeped heavily in classical liberalism. So it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Obama administration found a bogus excuse to omit the institution on its new “College Scorecard.” According to the Department of Education, Hillsdale isn’t listed on its scorecard, touted as a government sponsored effort to help students “identify which schools provide the biggest bang for your buck,” because it hands out too few bachelor’s degrees. “Hillsdale does offer bachelor’s degrees,” DOE spokesman Denise Horn told Hillsdale’s Collegian...

    The Daily Caller ^ | September 18, 2015 | Blake Neff, Reporter
    An Obama administration representative took a shot at a well-known conservative college Thursday, saying the school wasn’t included on its much-heralded new “College Scorecard” because it isn’t a real two-to-four year college. Hillsdale College, a 1,500-student liberal arts college in Michigan, is ranked by U.S. News and World Reports as the 67th-best national liberal arts college in the country. The college is well-known for the conservative identity of its student body and its focus on a core curriculum that emphasizes Judeo-Christian tradition and the U.S. Constitution. It’s also known for its refusal to accept any federal funding (including federal student...

    The Hillsdale College Shotgun Team has brought home its third ACUI Collegiate Division 3 National Clay Target Championship in four years, winning the title at the recent ACUI event at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio, Texas. This year, over 600 shooters representing 73 colleges competed in the ACUI Clay Target Championships, including 34 teams in Division 3. The team portion of the week started off a little tough, with sporting clays scores that did not meet shooters’ expectations. Schreiner University showed they would be tough competition for the Chargers early in the week. By the end of...

    Dr. Larry Arnn, constitutional scholar and president of Hillsdale College has instituted a series of public interest programs aired on conservative talk radio called, “Constitution Minute.” So far there have been nine episodes. Here are the first four: What is the Difference between Natural Rights and Entitlements? DR. ARNN: “America’s founders knew, obviously, that human beings are not equal in terms of strength or beauty, or in terms of intelligence, industry or talents. They understood that because of such differences, differences in talents and things like that, some people would be wealthier than others. But human beings are equal, the...
