Team Biden’s utter bull on its disastrous border policies

NYPost
Post Editorial Board Oooh, boy: Team Biden on Monday wheeled out its line on the border crisis, and it’s a doozy. There is no crisis, but if there is, it’s all Trump’s fault. Seriously: Thousands of minors, mostly from Central America, are traveling for weeks without their parents to enter......

Biden’s getting exactly the border crisis he asked for

NYPost
Post Editorial Board 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......

Lockdowns don’t work and other commentary

NYPost
Post Editorial Board Libertarian: Lockdowns Don’t Work “Despite the stark difference in policy,” America and Britain “saw remarkably similar COVID-19 trends this winter,” Reason’s Jacob Sullum points out.

With COVID vaccine rolling and cases receding, open up all classrooms!

NYPost
Post Editorial Board Once again, the science proves: Schools pose minimal risk in the spread of COVID-19. The CDC says it. Experts say it. And New York shows it, with just three city schools closed to hybrid in-person learning, out of an abundance of caution, because someone tested positive at......

Standing up to Gov. Cuomo is an ‘ethical duty’ for lawmakers

NYPost
Post Editorial Board 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......

New York City needs leaders to save it from economic disaster

NYC finally makes right call on Trump-run ice rinks

NYPost
Post Editorial Board 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,......

Pelosi’s ‘9/11-style panel’ for Capitol riot is just a bid to sell her pet conspiracy theories

NYPost
Post Editorial Board Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing ahead with her “independent 9/11-type commission,” but it looks more like an effort to bolster conspiracy theories than to get all the facts out. For starters, she’s plainly eager to turn the awful Jan. 6 Capitol riot into a culture-shifting moment the......

San Francisco’s heartless teachers’ union

NYPost
Post Editorial Board San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera this week expanded his suit against the city’s school district and Board of Education for dillydallying in reopening schools, which apparently don’t care about the fact that children are killing themselves. The educrats there are independent of mayoral control, but fully......

Biden’s horrific excuses for Beijing’s Uighur genocide

NYPost
Post Editorial Board The State Department described China’s mass internment of Uighur Muslims as “atrocities” that “shock the conscience.” Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and current Secretary of State Antony Blinken both agreed that the horrendous treatment qualifies as “genocide.” President Biden, however, chalked up the systematic rape and......

President Biden takes another snow day — get your milk cartons ready

NYPost
Post Editorial Board On the campaign trail, Joe Biden repeatedly called for so many early a.m. “lids” that The Post ran a “Where’s Joe” front page, wondering when the “hidin’” Biden would come out. We may need to run it again, because President Biden is still calling them: On Thursday,......

Commentary across the spectrum is demanding schools reopen

NYPost
Post Editorial Board Kids have suffered grievously over the past year: lousy remote “learning,” lost routines and social lives, spiraling mental illness. Most of the blame lies with teachers ­unions that refuse to return to the classroom, despite all evidence that schools aren’t COVID spreaders, and politicians beholden to Big ­Labor,......

Get schools open, President Biden

NYPost
Post Editorial Board America needs its schools reopened, but President Biden and his team are making it harder even as they pretend otherwise. Vice President Kamala Harris further muddied the issue Wednesday on “The Today Show,” refusing to say if teacher vaccinations need to come first. Time and again, she......

Team Biden is still pushing blatant lies about the Trump vaccine plan

NYPost
Post Editorial Board Why is Team Biden sticking to its ridiculous “Trump had no vax-distribution plan” claim? Vice President Kamala Harris trotted it out in a weekend interview, yet again insisting that the new administration is effectively “starting from scratch” because of its predecessor’s failures. Ha! After President Biden made......

George Washington: A founder who still inspires all Americans

NYPost
Post Editorial Board “Presidents Day” is actually still Washington’s Birthday officially, though no longer always honored on Feb. 22, his actual birth date. And that’s entirely right and proper, as every American should happily honor our first chief executive. What was most remarkable about Washington was (to riff off a......
