    Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh reportedly will be suspended by the program following self-imposed sanctions. Harbaugh had been facing a four-game suspension from the NCAA, but negotiations collapsed seemingly at the 11th hour. It now appears UM will attempt to cut off the NCAA Committee on Infractions before it can get involved. The program will suspend Harbaugh for all three non-conference games, according to multiple Monday afternoon reports. No official announcement has come from the university. If the reported suspension decision holds, Harbaugh will miss games against East Carolina, UNLV and Bowling Green, and the star coach will then return...

Revolution! Marchers, seen walking around the Ann Arbor campus screaming into bullhorns and waving Palestinian flags, were also heard...

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Court of Appeals won't order a hospital to use a deworming drug to treat a man who has health problems related to COVID-19.

    Just as former Vice President Joe Biden secured the 270 electoral votes to become the 46th president of the United States, in Michigan, a joint state Senate and House oversight committee voted along party lines to subpoena documents relating to the 2020 election, investigating irregularities without evidence.

Ed McBroom (R-Vulcan) acknowledged that reports of irregularities were anecdotal, but insisted that a subpoena for documents would provide clarity because the public is at a "fever pitch" of interest. “The premise of these hearings is not to overturn the will of the people of this state, not...

    Not content with aiming to rewrite American history with its 1619 Project, The New York Times and project chief Nikole Hannah-Jones are now trying to rewrite the history of . . . the 1619 Project. Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer Prize for her piece kicking off the series, which explicitly aimed to make the first slave’s arrival on these shores the seminal event of US history — to paint “1619 as our true founding.” “Out of slavery,” one Times editor explained, “grew nearly everything that has truly made America exceptional: its economic might, its industrial power, its electoral system.” Even the American Revolution...

Hannah-Jones herself also asserts now that the project’s core thesis is not what she and everyone else...
