    Miranda and “Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller took to social media back in May when they were criticized for not vocally supporting Black Lives Matter and allegedly being silent about police brutality amid the George Floyd protests. “We spoke out on the day of the Pulse shooting. We spoke out when Vice President Mike Pence came to our show 10 days after the election. That we have not yet firmly spoken the inarguable truth that Black Lives Matter and denounced systematic racism and white supremacy from our official Hamilton channels is a moral failure on our part,” Miranda said in a...

    Lin-Manuel Miranda issued an apology to fans of Hamilton for the Broadway show’s failure to publicly denounce systemic racism sooner on Saturday. The 40-year-old playwright and actor also affirmed the show’s support for the Black Lives Matter, as protests have roiled major cities across the nation in the wake of the death of George Floyd. He began his short Twitter statement by pointing out how quickly the show was to respond to previous crises and incidents of racism and hatred. “We spoke out on the day of the Pulse shooting.

  • Hamilton Silences Impeachment Fools

    by KrisAnne Hall, JD America’s media stream has been saturated by politicians, pundits, and law professors pontificating on what America’s founders’ believed about presidential impeachment. The most oft used argument today is a misapplication and misleading representation of what founder Alexander Hamilton said in Federalist #65. The claim is that Alexander Hamilton establishes in Federalist #65 that presidents should be “impeached for political reasons.” This is completely and obviously false to anyone who has read the essay and possesses a smidgen of reading comprehension skills. I believe the people asserting this fake claim are confident that the American people won’t...

    On Saturday July 7th 1787, Gouverneur Morris of Pennsylvania asked the Federal Convention, “What if all the Charters & Constitutions of the States were thrown into the fire, and all their demagogues into the ocean. What would it be to the happiness of America?” Such was the widespread contempt of the conduct of the states after only six years of the Articles of Confederation (Articles). Morris encountered no push-back, no scorn in return from his fellow delegates. This squib is in response to some of the Hamilton-Haters I’ve come across over the years, those who variously accuse Hamilton of advocating...

    During his short exile from Revolutionary France, the famously corrupt former French Foreign Minister, Talleyrand, glimpsed the ex-US Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton, working by candlelight late at night. Talleyrand couldn’t comprehend why a former cabinet secretary, a finance secretary no less, had to work at all after almost six years in government. Despite his remarkable achievements, I’ve found that many Article V COS opponents unjustly vilify the man who, while impoverishing himself and family through government service, enriched his nation. The often unhinged hostility of these people and others are only surpassed by contemporary Trump Derangement Syndrome. Alexander Hamilton was...

    **SNIP** After more than a year of planning by university administration, students and show producers, “Hamilton” announced on Dec. 21 — less than a month before opening night — that it was relocating the production to Centro de Bellas Artes Luis A. Ferré, the cultural center about five miles away, to avoid the threat of union unrest and campus protests over rising fees. On Dec. 27, crews came to remove the sets that had been in place for much of the month. Three days later, all that remained were the light post banners proudly trumpeting a show that no longer...
