Don't muzzle scientists investigating COVID-19

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Though the death toll from COVID-19 just hit a staggering 200,000 in the U.S., we still don't know the origins of this killer virus. China, which has been praised by the World Health Organization, has blocked independent investigation. Worse, social media platforms are accomplices to the cover-up. Last week, Facebook and Twitter did their best ...Read more

Biden's COVID-19 advisers are all foolish

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

The leftist media are claiming Joe Biden has an all-star team of experts ready to take over and vanquish the virus. In truth, they're undermining the single thing this nation needs to resume normal life -- a vaccine. They'd also bring back the dangerous Obama-era idea of making people 65 and over a lesser priority for medical care. If you're in ...Read more

The Democrats have plot to abolish election night

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

The left and its media allies are warning Americans not to expect a winner on election night. If Donald Trump leads on Nov. 3, the victory will be nothing more than a "red mirage," says Josh Mendelsohn, whose firm consults for the Democratic National Committee. In the days or weeks afterward, a Trump victory will be beaten back and undone as ...Read more

The Anti-Trumpers are trying to block a vaccine

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Trump-haters are so determined to defeat the president that they're opposing emergency authorization of a COVID-19 vaccine. What a callous disregard for human life. Without a vaccine, another 100,000 fatalities are expected by year's end, according to Washington University epidemiologists. On Friday, Food and Drug Commissioner Stephen Hahn ...Read more

Democrats pushing phony USPS crisis

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warns that "dangerous new policies" made by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who took the job in June, will prevent mail-in ballots from being counted. Senator Chuck Schumer claims there's a conspiracy to "undermine and dismantle the post office ahead of the November election."

Don't fall for the scaremongering.

Trump campaigns for fairness in college admissions

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

The outcome of November's election will likely determine the role of racial preferences in the college admissions process. Voters have a clear choice. The Trump administration wants an applicant's grades and achievements to matter most. The Obama-Biden administration had urged colleges to tilt the scale in favor of minority applicants. Now Joe ...Read more

Licensing requirements killing jobs

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Americans are hurting for jobs. But New York state's lawmakers are poised to make it even tougher to earn a paycheck by concocting licensing requirements for something as simple as giving a shampoo. The Albany pols have something to gain -- campaign contributions from those pushing the new requirement. But if you're eyeing a job in a hair salon,...Read more

COVID-19 lies go viral

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Beware of three widely circulating COVID-19-related lies and the partisan motives behind them. These lies are dangerous to your children and how you cope with this virus.

Lie No. 1: "The United States' response stands out as among the worst of any country." House Majority Whip James Clyburn leveled that charge, as he kicked off a hearing Friday...Read more

Using lifesaving drugs as a means of redistribution

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

When lifesaving drugs run low, hospitals have to choose which patients get a scarce drug, while others go without. Some even die. Historically, medical ethicists have recommended giving the drug to the patient most likely to benefit or using a lottery to give every patient an equal chance.

Not any more. Pennsylvania hospitals are tilting the ...Read more

Biden will destroy the suburbs

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

If you live in the suburbs, or you're a city-dweller eyeing a move to a quiet cul-de-sac where your kids can play, you need to know about Joe Biden's plan for a federal takeover of local zoning laws.

Biden wants to ramp up an Obama-era social engineering scheme called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, which barely got started before Donald...Read more

Don't hand out vaccines based on race

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

A federal committee is considering pushing Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans to the front of the line for COVID-19 vaccines, ahead of whites. A COVID-19 vaccine could be ready by year's end but not in sufficient quantity to vaccinate over 300 million Americans. Frontline health care workers and national security personnel will be top ...Read more

With COVID 19 being airborne, current precautions aren't enough

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

If you're working in an office or eating in a restaurant and someone 30 feet away exhales tiny particles of coronavirus, those particles can drift across the room and infect you. Picture cigarette smoke wafting across a room. Same thing. The precautions agencies like the World Health Organization and the federal CDC are telling you to take ...Read more

Washington bureaucrats drag their feet against the virus

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

In a pandemic, government efficiency can make the difference between life and death. You'd expect our civil "servants" to rise to the occasion. Some are. But the Government Accountability Office, a federal watchdog, is sounding the alarm that, for the most part, Washington bureaucrats are dithering.

The GAO report released June 25 uncovers ...Read more
