Islanders’ Zach Parise trade attempt was classic Lou Lamoriello
Claude Lemieux filed a grievance against Lou Lamoriello in 1995 and alleged in a hearing that the-then Devils general manager filed false documents with the league in what became the Conn Smythe Trophy winner’s failed attempt to negate the contract he’d signed before the club’s Stanley Cup victory.

Facts the Times won’t face about children who kill

Ilhan Omar’s appalling ‘collusion’ with Turkey’s tyrant
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s mandate defined “collusion” as “links and/or coordination” with foreign powers. Democrats and their media allies tried and failed to hang the charge around President Trump’s neck. But one of their own darlings, Rep. Ilhan Omar, has inarguably colluded with an unsavory Islamist regime: Turkey’s. In fall 2017, Omar, then a state...

Bernie Sanders’ outrageous AIPAC attack
Bernie Sanders’ slur this week against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee should remove any doubt: He’s the most anti-Israel major candidate of 2020.
