Jail the Shoplifters

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Brazen shoplifting is hurting all of us.

I'm brushing with bubble gum-flavored children's toothpaste because it takes too long to get a clerk at the pharmacy to unlock the adult toothpaste. Before the shoplifting scourge, shoppers could actually browse and read product labels.

Target, Home Depot and other retailers announced last ...Read more

Democrats' New Rule: Migrants First, Everyone Last

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Democrats' new rule: If you're not a migrant, go to the back of the line.

Gary Moretti and his fiancee booked 30 rooms at The Crossroads Hotel in Newburgh, New York, for their bridesmaids and guests for a June 24 wedding. But New York City Mayor Eric Adams' migrant-first policy demolished their plans.

Over the last two weeks, Adams has ...Read more

Making Homelessness a Valid Lifestyle Choice Is Wrong

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Americans must not surrender to the new normal of squalor and urban chaos -- of tent encampments, public defecation, panhandling and shouting schizophrenics.

In the aftermath of Jordan Neely's tragic death on a New York subway, advocates for the homeless and most Democratic politicians are demanding unfettered freedom for the homeless to live...Read more

Don't Buy Into Sharpton's Attack on McDonald's

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Racism is abhorrent. So are shakedown artists who cry racism to rake in cash.

The Rev. Al Sharpton publicly threatened McDonald's CEO Chris Kempczinski on April 27, using the same language his National Action Network has used for three decades to squeeze cash out of major corporations.

Sharpton referred to "multiple accusations of racial ...Read more

Biden's Open Borders Bringing Diseases to Your Neighborhood

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Ready for another pandemic? New York City's health commissioner announced last week that the influx of migrants from the southern border -- more than 50,000 to New York City alone in the past year -- is delivering contagious diseases, including tuberculosis and polio, to our neighborhoods.

The same disease threats are also endangering other ...Read more

Muslims Turning the Tide in the School Culture Wars

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

In a slap to Muslim girls at Stuyvesant High School, the school is cancelling single-sex swim lessons, even though swim instruction is required to graduate. That forces the girls to choose between preserving their modesty and getting a diploma.

Count on Muslim families to fight back and likely prevail. Nationwide, Muslims are taking up the ...Read more

Trump's Trial Needs to Be Televised

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

On Tuesday, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg presented his bag-of-tricks indictment charging former President Donald Trump with 34 counts of false entries in business records. Bragg managed to slice and dice two payments to former hookers into what sounds like a big deal -- 34 felonies. Don't be fooled. As former U.S. Attorney General ...Read more

China Controls Your Meds

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Democrats and Republicans battered TikTok's CEO at a House of Representatives hearing on Thursday -- for good reason. The Chinese app poses a national security risk, accumulating troves of data on its American users. TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew's slithery comment that "I don't think spying is the right way to describe it," only heightened concerns. ...Read more

Sex Ed Is Getting Too Extreme! Parents Must Take Control of What Kids are Being Taught!

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

The facts of life haven't changed, but sex education is entirely different now from what you likely learned in school.

Sex ed in middle school now includes graphic lessons on anal sex, oral sex and masturbation, with stick figures to illustrate body positions. Supplemental reading in middle school libraries includes "Sex, Puberty, and All That...Read more

Biden's Banking Busts

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

The failure of three banks in the last two weeks, including Silicon Valley Bank on Friday and Signature Bank on Sunday, is a saga of utter government incompetence. Call these bank collapses Biden's Banking Busts. The Biden administration has been obsessing on woke causes while banks teeter toward insolvency.

Three days before Silicon Valley ...Read more

College Industrial Complex's Left-Wing Lies!

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Families saving for college and encouraging their kids to aim for the top are getting scammed by the left-wing college industrial complex. Colleges distort and outright lie about who gets accepted, education quality and what it costs. If they were selling auto loans and used the same deceptive tactics, they'd be in jail.

Columbia University ...Read more

Biden's 'America Last' Health Treaty

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

President Joe Biden's diplomats are negotiating a treaty with the World Health Organization to promote so-called global health equity. The premise is that in a pandemic or other worldwide disease emergency, Americans should not get better or faster health care than inhabitants of third-world countries. If Biden rams this through, Americans will ...Read more
