Message To My Readers Regarding National Review and William Barr

I received an e-mail yesterday from Rich Lowry, Editor of National Review, probably as did all the on-line subscribers to their daily reports, asking for financial support.

Here's the request:
Anyone interested in a tax-deductible contribution to support the work of National Review Institute, our charitable, 501(c)(3) non-profit sister organization that advances the conservative principles championed by our mutual founder, William F. Buckley Jr., should visit www.nrinstitute.org for more information.  (Note: Here's a link to the "Donate Now" button for those interested.  RK)
Good for them! That's how it has to be done in the news market today, especially for news magazines, however, on more than one occasion I've wondered if Bill Buckley would turn over in his grave for some of the views they've espoused these days.  But I've also often wondered just how conservative Bill Buckley would be considered these days, although I think he was brilliant and would have been where conservatives needed him in this battle.  When you read about Buckley you begin to realize he had unique relationships with some strange people, and it would be my bet he would have loved Trump.  But....who knows? 

However, in this case, National Review is driving on the "right" side of the road.  They've justified their request by citing their support of Attorney General William Barr, which is impressive.  As proof they've linked articles in their e-mail from May to December.   I've taken the liberty of posting them below.  Some of my favorite writers are listed.

I will not be donating as I have misgivings about National Review.  It appears to me they have too many people, like Jonah Goldberg, who remind me of George Will, and John McCain, all of whom have the tendency to define conservatism as they see fit.  Even if it means driving on the left side of the road and calling it a conservative position.

However, you should choose for yourself. 

Best wishes,

Rich Kozlovich
