No one thought that Monday’s three-and-a-half hour “virtual meeting” between President Biden and General Secretary Xi, convened at Biden’s request, was going to result in any breakthroughs.

An Interview With James O’Keefe

How did you get started as a journalist?
While a student at Rutgers University, I founded the newspaper The Centurion with the goal of exposing wrongdoing on my college campus. My first experience in national journalism was in 2009, when I went undercover inside ACORN offices across the country to expose fraud and rampant corruption. Those undercover videos made national headlines and led to congressional action.

There are five statewide proposals on the New York ballot on Tuesday. Proposals 1, 3, and 4 represent efforts by the state’s progressive Democrats to change redistricting and voting in New York. New York voters should reject all three. For good measure, they should also vote down Proposal 2, which purports to create a state constitutional “right to clean air and water, and a healthful environment” that would be enforceable by “each person.
