Athletes have good reason to beware Xi Jinping’s Beijing Winter Olympics
There are growing calls to boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing or to ­relocate the event to a different nation. It isn’t hard to see why, given China’s aggression in the Indo-Pacific region, horrific human-rights abuses and crushing of rule of law in Hong Kong — not to mention the Beijing ­regime’s duplicitous handling...

Is your iPhone worth China’s tyranny?
To understand the troubled relationship between America and Communist China, it helps to tell the story of two Apples.  The first story begins on a fishing boat, where a 12-year-old boy named Jimmy Lai hid as a stowaway to reach Hong Kong from Guangzhou, China, in 1951.  Beginning as a child laborer earning $8 a...

More union treachery from the United Federation of Teachers
Another day, another Gotham schooling disaster.  Parents were overjoyed last week when the city Department of Education finally ­announced changes aimed at ­restoring full-time, in-person schooling in New York. This, even though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance reducing social-distancing ­require­ments had come a month earlier — and though many districts across the...

CNN’s business model: Profit from fear, hate and division
Wow: It turns out CNN has made spreading fear and hate into its business model. Project Veritas, the right-wing outfit that specializes in guerilla exposés centered on secretly-recorded videos, had one of its undercover operatives get CNN technical director Charles Chester to blab on what he thought were dates after connecting on Tinder. In the tapes, Chester...

Two police shootings, two different outcomes and other commentary
Centrist: Two Police Shootings, Two Outcomes  The charging decisions in the police shootings of Daunte Wright in Minnesota and Ashli Babbitt in DC were announced within an hour of each other “with strikingly different conclusions,” observes Jonathan Turley at USA Today. While Babbitt was “at the forefront of a riot, there is no claim that...

Andrew Cuomo’s energy legacy for New York: Dark days ahead
As of April 30, the Indian Point nuclear plant shuts down for good, thanks to yearslong pressure from Gov. Andrew Cuomo — leaving the state more reliant on power produced by burning natural gas, and making it far harder to reach Cuomo’s zero-carbon-emissions goal. Unveiling his $26 billion clean energy, “clean economy” plan in January,...

Letters to the Editor — April 19, 2021
The Issue: Media and politicians’ reaction to the police shooting of Daunte Wright. Thank you so much for Wednesday’s editorial. It was exactly on point (“Fanning the Flames,” Editorial, April 14).

Impeach and remove Maxine Waters
In supporting the second impeachment of President Trump, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said he was “inciting” his followers, and was “trying to create a Civil War.” By her own standards, Maxine Waters should be impeached and removed. On Sunday in Minnesota, Waters, breaking the law by violating curfew (because “she didn’t agree with it”)...

Nancy Pelosi biography reveals depths of her tone-deafness
On November 8, 2016, Nancy Pelosi told interviewers she had complete confidence that Hillary Clinton was about to be elected president. Having been House Speaker from 2007 to 2011, she had the distinction of having held the highest rank of any woman in United States history, but “I’m counting the minutes to relinquish that title.”...

Cowardly CEOs’ woke political activism is a PR gimmick
Hysteria, groupthink and a fair amount of hypocrisy are the key ingredients in a ­ruinous cocktail that has managed to intoxicate some formerly profit-focused boardrooms.  One day, it’s the Adena Friedman-led Nasdaq stock market demanding that its US-listed companies have fully diverse boards even as it ignores a Chinese company’s treatment of the oppressed Uighur...

Letters to the Editor — April 18, 2021
Kimmel’s joke flopMaureen Callahan was spot-on with her article about the Hunter Biden and Jimmy Kimmel comedy routine (“The lowlife of the party,” April 10). There should be no doubt in any open-minded American’s mind that Hunter Biden is the “Fredo” of the Biden family, and Kimmel is taking advantage of the opportunity to try...

How Congress is pushing for our schools to teach racialist anti-Americanism
Congress has been busy introducing bills supposedly to improve American civics education but really to stoke anti-American neo-racism.  In classic top-down fashion and with titles such as The Civics Learning Act, these federal initiatives would impose identity politics on all American schools with things like Critical Race Theory (“CRT”), a pseudo-pedagogy obsessed with skin color...

Influencers like Joy Reid spreading dangerous idea of quarantining forever
There’s more than one unnerving viral problem in the US. Here’s a dangerous one: the spread of neurotic, unjustified, perpetual panic.  The risk of getting seriously ill from COVID is, for people who are fully vaccinated, negligible. Be happy about this! Get out there! Go to a restaurant! See friends! Hug Granny!  Instead, the United...

How Biden’s border policies will increase sex trafficking of children to US
A recent image of Ecuadorian girls, aged 3 and 5, being dropped like packages over the southern border wall shocked many Americans. But it didn’t shock experts who say that human traffickers are busier than ever under President Biden, who has expedited the flow of migrants over the US-Mexico border.  The Biden policy, which puts...

Woke mayoral candidates want to use COVID to turn NYC into Communist ‘utopia’
In the aftermath of 9/11, our leaders — for all their differences — mostly shared the same goals: to rebuild what was lost, restore the economy and rekindle faith in the Big Apple’s historic and inherent greatness.  But for the candidates running in the June 22 Democratic mayoral primary, the COVID-19 plague is no occasion...
