With Gov. Cuomo in full “demonize the truth-tellers” mode, the Legislature clearly needs to start getting ready for impeachment, as Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens) demands.

Kim mentions the governor’s threats to “destroy” him personally if the legislator didn’t go along with Cuomo’s effort to spin his top aide’s confession that Cuomo’s team intentionally hid (from lawmakers and the public) the truth about COVID deaths in long-term-care homes.

With the Republican loss in the 2020 election, there is a great deal of debate on where the party and the wider conservative movement are headed. According to betting markets, the 2024 field is wide open. The odds-on favorite is former President Donald Trump, but even he only has around a 20 percent chance as...

Should children be given life-altering treatments to help them transition from one gender to another, including puberty blockers and body-mutilating surgeries? Should doctors be encouraged to allow minors to make a choice that will block their physical development and ability to have children when they get older? Is there evidence that doing so might do...

Andrew’s in the soup, that’s for sure. Wrap your head around this: The New York Times is reporting that Gov. Cuomo took time out from coronavirus hot-dogging last June to offer tattoo-placement advice to a just-turned-25-year-old female aide of no particular expertise during a private, closed-door sit-down in the state Capitol. Cuomo suggested “she should...

💬Opinion | New York Post . |

It feels wrong to hope that a company goes out of business and its stock craters to zero, which is why short sellers — the traders who make money when stocks tank — are treated with disdain in many corners of Wall Street and now increasingly in Washington.  But the devil in this case deserves...

Dems’ new COVID relief bill mainly subsidizes health care for the rich
💬Opinion | New York Post . |

Democrats’ holy grail is reducing income inequality. So it’s ironic that they are considering a bill to expand ObamaCare that will primarily benefit richer households and health-insurance companies.  The massive coronavirus relief bill racing through Congress provides substantial new health-insurance subsidies to upper-income households. A 60-year-old couple with two kids making $200,000 would receive a...

A new year, a new president, a return of an old problem: unaccompanied children crossing the border in droves. Thousands of children — usually older teens, 16 or 17, but Border Patrol agents report increasing numbers of kids younger than 13 — are arriving each month from Central America. On Thursday, a Customs and Border...

In 2018, Smith College student Oumou Kanoute accused the school of racial profiling, saying she was approached by a security officer for “eating while black.” A subsequent investigation found that not only was Kanoute dining in a closed area, she was not racially profiled nor discriminated against.  Still, the incident set off a furor at...

Tough contest, but Mayor Putz, Bill de Blasio, is more popular in New York these days than the Granny Killer, Gov. Cuomo. “People would tend to like a bungling idiot more than a homicidal maniac” is how “Bernie and Sid” put it yesterday on their top-rated WABC radio show.  And that was in the morning,...

💬Opinion | New York Post . |

If you still think Democrats still think ex-President Donald Trump’s speech incited the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, you aren’t paying attention. The claim was impeachment bait that expired when the former president was acquitted.  Ever since, Dems have been shifting toward another politically convenient bogeyman. Their latest claim is that there was nothing spontaneous about...

Late Sunday, the de Blasio administration wisely changed course and let kids enjoy some ice skating in this endless lockdown winter. To spite Donald Trump, the city had decided to cancel his contracts to run ice rinks in Central Park — not at the beginning of April, when they closed for spring, but immediately. The...

As winners never fail to remind losers, elections have consequences. But rarely is there a  single day where consequences pack as much wallop as Friday, where the irrationality of Joe Biden’s policies came into full view. From the border with Mexico, where the new administration started opening the doors to at least 25,000 migrants seeking...

Just a few months ago, New York’s Emmy award-winning governor, Andrew Cuomo, appeared to be riding high. His audaciously titled “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” was released to high praise from The Washington Post, which described it as an “impressive road map to dealing with the crisis.”  Amazon Books made the tome an...

You’ve heard the expression that the coverup is worse than the crime? Well, in the case of Gov. Cuomo, the opposite might be true. Cuomo is under bipartisan fire after an aide admitted that his administration deliberately delayed releasing information showing the true extent of COVID-19 deaths in New York nursing homes, out of fears,...

💬Opinion | New York Post . |

When violent anti-cop rioters were arrested in last year’s “summer of rage,” high-profile Democrats donated cash to bail them out, left-wing lawyers defended them pro bono and sympathetic judges and DAs bent over backward to let them off scot-free.  But when Trump supporters were rounded up over the Capitol riot, they were on their own....

The stench from Gov. Cuomo’s nursing-home carnage and months-long coverup is finally causing even some Democratic pols in Albany to turn against the governor. At least 14 have now joined Republicans to demand Cuomo be stripped of his pandemic emergency powers. And not a day too soon. Cuomo used those powers to shutter restaurants and...

A second Emmy would not be good enough for that performance. Only an Oscar will do. After all, it takes an uncommon actor to pretend to be telling the truth and nothing but the truth when you are telling everything but the truth.  Gov.

Now that the election is over and President Biden is installed in the White House, it’s safe for the truth about his character to dribble out.  And what do you know?

And so the verdict is . . . Hallelujah. It’s over.  The acquittal of former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial is a fitting outcome to a case that should not have happened. Never before has a former president been impeached and put on trial, and it should never happen again.  This was a show...

Will Donald Trump come back from his defeat? Trump has already let it be known he intends to primary, beginning in 2022, all the “weak Republicans” who betrayed him in the impeachment fight. He’s prepared for a civil war within the party’s ranks; he thinks the other guy started it but plans to finish it on his terms. But the second...

Six months ago, when President Joe Biden was candidate Joe Biden, he spoke of “a crisis being felt all across the United States of America.” The crisis was school closures. Millions of children were staring at laptops rather than learning in a classroom. Biden said: “This is a national emergency. President Trump doesn’t have a...
