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

We need to search for the uncensored truth of COVID-19's Origins

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

China is determined to block investigations of where COVID-19 came from. But worse, influential American scientists are going along with censoring any inquiry. They're declaring their "solidarity with the scientists and health professionals of China."

That's a deadly problem. Conquering this virus and devising a vaccine will require unbiased ...Read more

Arbitrary left-wing lockdown demonstrates bias of so-called experts

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Three months ago, America was told to trust public health experts. Never again. Most of them have revealed themselves to be left-wing ideologues cloaked in the mantle of science. On their advice, states slammed their economies shut, put 40 million people out of work, sent school kids home and pushed businesses into bankruptcy.

These public ...Read more

Funding WHO is like throwing money down a rat hole

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

President Donald Trump is taking heavy criticism for his announcement on Friday that the U.S. is "terminating its relationship with the World Health Organization."

But the evidence is mounting that the $450 million the U.S. spends yearly on WHO is money down a rat hole.

US at heightened risk for a germ attack but also more ready

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

America hasn't seen the last of killer coronaviruses.

China's "bat woman," a Wuhan Institute of Virology investigator who handles bat viruses, is warning that the current pandemic is "just the tip of the iceberg." Friendly advice from a researcher? Perhaps, but America's enemies are watching.

They've seen the devastating impact of the ...Read more

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Citing the Bill of Rights and the "ideals of civil disobedience," the owner of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey, defied Governor Phil Murphy's orders by reopening on Monday. Cops "formally" notified the gym owner he was in violation of the shutdown order and then wished him "a good day." The crowd cheered.

Civil disobedience is alive and well...Read more

It's time to get back to business

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

All across the nation, business owners are waiting for the signal to reopen. In some places, it's happening now, but in too many parts of the U.S., towns and cities are being held to the same footdragging schedule that is killing commerce in the epicenter of the pandemic, New York City.

New York officials fear half the city's smallest ...Read more

Prolonging the shutdown defies science and the US Constitution

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Across the nation, protesters are taking to the streets and business owners are filing lawsuits objecting to the coronavirus shutdown rules. As the rules drag on, they're causing job losses, bankruptcies and a feeling that people have no rights. The liberal media are labeling the protesters "virus deniers." Don't fall for that. The protesters ...Read more

Anti-COVID technology makes returning to work safer

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Governor Andrew Cuomo is allowing upstate construction and assembly line businesses to reopen May 15, but other businesses have to stay shut longer. How long? That depends on how "essential" they are, he said.

Sorry, Governor, but any business is essential if it's how you earn your paycheck. People need to work, and new research indicates for ...Read more

Wearing a homemade cotton mask is a false assurance

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

New York, New Jersey, Maryland and other states are requiring everyone to wear a mask or a substitute face covering to leave home. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has suddenly flipped from urging the public not to wear masks to recommending that they wear something that covers their nose and mouth.

New York's Mayor Bill ...Read more

Shutdown could kill more Americans than COVID-19

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

Thursday's unemployment update confirms that over the last three weeks, nearly 17 million Americans have been laid off because of the shutdown. That's one-tenth of the nation's workforce. It's not just an economic fact. It's a public health disaster. If the shutdown is dragged on, as many public health experts recommend, it is almost certain to ...Read more

It's time for a task force to rescue America from the shutdown

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

President Donald Trump is hinting at a second task force responsible for getting Americans back to work. Appoint it now, Mr. President. Don't wait until the virus peaks. This second task force should prepare the country to reopen, with new tools to fight the virus.

The president's top epidemiologist, the esteemed Anthony Fauci, insists "the ...Read more
