Letters to the Editor — March 3, 2021
The Issue: The three women who have come forward accusing Gov. Cuomo of sexual harassment. The dominoes are falling, and Gov. Cuomo’s “I was joking” excuse is a lame, last-ditch response (“Hey, I’m a funny guy,” March 1). No matter your profession, these days nearly everyone sits through an annual sexual-harassment training. His response doesn’t...

Biden’s outrageous giveaway to federal bureaucrats should enrage you
If you were to design a legislative provision outrageous enough to inspire another Tea Party-style political uprising, you would be hard-pressed to do better than Section 5111 of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus-relief clunker is full of items with perverse incentives (long-term unemployment top-offs and blue-state pension-fund bailouts) and others that...

Team Biden’s utter bull on its disastrous border policies
Oooh, boy: Team Biden on Monday wheeled out its line on the border crisis, and it’s a doozy. There is no crisis, but if there is, it’s all Trump’s fault. Seriously: Thousands of minors, mostly from Central America, are traveling for weeks without their parents to enter the United States illegally and then request asylum,...

Moving ahead with Rikers closure is NYC elites’ latest harebrained, pro-crime plan
If you had any doubt that the City Council has lost touch with reality, its recent decision to proceed with the shuttering of Rikers should lay them to rest.  Last month, the council reaffirmed that it would move to close the Rikers jail and create a “renewable-energy hub” on the island. Local lawmakers are still...

China drops the hammer on Hong Kong democracy — but activists aren’t backing down
On Sunday, 47 pro-democracy lawmakers and activists in Hong Kong were charged with subversion under China’s new national-security law — a law designed to snuff out personal liberties.

Cuomo’s blame-the-victim ‘apology’ for his off-color comments
Under pressure, Gov. Cuomo on Sunday issued what he hoped folks would see as an “apology” following sexual-harassment charges against him: He’s “sorry” his accusers “misinterpreted” his comments. Does he really think New Yorkers are that stupid? That apology blames the victims: “I never intended to offend anyone,” he says; his remarks were just “jokes”...

Forever pandemic for thee but not for me? Over the weekend, footage surfaced of Matt Meyer, president of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, taking his daughter to pre-school.

It’s a high bar to impeach Cuomo — but his political ambitions have been destroyed
Governor Cuomo has suffered a rapid fall from grace. But it should come as no surprise: his image was puffed up by an adoring national media that needed a foil to its bête noire Donald Trump. Now that his doppelganger from central Queens is off the stage, there’s no reason to waste more breath on...
