CONSERVATIVES OF NOTE

The press is not keen on recognizing conservative accomplishments. That is not the case at the third annual Impact Awards in the nation’s capital on Wednesday, which honors steadfast stalwarts who have worked to advance conservative principles in business, academia and entertainment. Hosted by the nonprofit United in Purpose interest group, the awards recognize those “whose impact would not be recognized by today’s mainstream culture,” the organizers say. The ceremony will be held at a glittering hotel a few blocks from the White House.

An “outstanding” award goes to Canadian psychology professor Jordan B. Peterson, the lifetime achievement’ award goes to Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University.

Other award recipients include investigative broadcast journalist Sharyl Attkisson, pro-life author Abby Johnson, who wrote “Unplanned,” Eric Cochran of Project Veritas; Justin Danhof, general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research; Jason D. Hill, philosophy professor at DePaul University; Rep. Mark R. Meadows, North Carolina Republican; syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin and documentary filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer.
