D.C. judges order Maryland man’s federal execution to go forward on Friday; Supreme Court rejects first of his two appeals

A back-and-forth legal battle continued into the final hours before Dustin Higgs, 48, convicted in a triple murder in Prince George’s County in 1996, is scheduled to be executed Friday, which would make him the last federal inmate to be put to death under President Donald Trump as he leaves office.

Small businesses should be ‘front and center’ in COVID relief package | COMMENTARY

As small business owners, we welcomed the COVID emergency relief bill Congress approved in the waning days of 2020, a disastrous year for many of us working to keep our operations afloat and our employees on the payroll.

BLM protestors are the real American patriots | COMMENTARY

Responses to and analyses of the Jan. 6 seditious attack on the nation’s capital by a mob of Donald Trump’s supporters have been wide ranging.

One can’t escape the racial overtones laid bare by this juxtaposition. There is, however, an additional difference between BLM and Mr. Trump’s insurrectionists to be noted: It is the former, not the latter, who are patriots committed to...
