Eric Adams talking nice on business and tough on crime — we look forward to his followup with action

As he awaits the November general election that’ll likely make him the city’s 110th mayor, Eric Adams continues to sound the right notes on New York’s future and economic recovery.
Last week, the Brooklyn Democrat promised a new, pro-business era at City Hall, telling a group of Wall Street execs that he offered his “hand in partnership” — while also asking for help in connecting hundreds of thousands of city residents to jobs and careers in growing industries.

Making kids under 6 mask isn’t science, it’s child abuse

Gov. Kathy Hochul has gone ahead and ordered masking not just for all schoolchildren but for tots age 2 and up in day care. This is, without question, not just senseless but positively harmful.
There’s plenty to debate in many anti-COVID measures, but children under 6, without question, should not mask.
Yes, the Centers for Disease Control bureaucrats — with the White House pushing for advice that will please the teachers unions — recommend masking for all schoolkids (and faculty), even down to preschool. But the World Health Organization says under-6s shouldn’t mask.

The DOE wants to make the ‘Maspeth Minimum’ a city-wide policy

The scariest part about the devastating report into cheating at Maspeth High School is how the Department of Education has responded to such scandals.
The biggest issue, to them, is not that Maspeth’s principal graduated students who didn’t pass classes. Or that students were fed answers to tests. It’s that grades and tests even exist.
Consider one Maspeth administrator’s response when asked why he fed answers to a student during a test.

Surge of Haitians at the border shows Team Biden really has no clue what to do

Why hasn’t Vice President Kamala Harris visited Port-au-Prince?
She insisted that you need to examine the “root causes” in order to handle the border crisis. Well, in the past few months, Haiti’s president was assassinated and the island nation was hit by an earthquake and a hurricane. Those are some root causes.
But Harris didn’t visit Haiti, and President Joe Biden’s administration barely reacted to the unrest — sending USAID to offer some nominal assistance.

The week in whoppers: The NYT’s terrible 9/11 takeaway, Milley’s call chicanery and more

Diary of disturbing disinformation and dangerous delusions:
These headlines:
NY Post composite
We say: On the 20th anniversary of the world’s deadliest terrorist attack, the country’s supposed “paper of record” was focused on anything but paying tribute to al Qaeda’s 2,977 victims, the heroism exhibited that horrible day and the enduring legacy of both. Instead of, say, considering first responders’ deadliest day in American history, the Times’ hacks used the tragedy to push their typical tired talking points.

Fresh proof the Russiagate ‘scandal’ was created by the Hillary Clinton campaign

A federal grand jury on Thursday handed up an indictment requested by special counsel John Durham — and it’s fresh proof that the entire Russiagate “scandal” was manufactured by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Durham, the federal prosecutor tasked with investigating the origins of the investigation, is targeting lawyer Michael Sussmann for lying about his client when he met with an agent to share dubious suspicions of a link between the Trump Organization and Kremlin-connected Alfa Bank.
