New York officials are issuing subpoenas and threatening fines against a group of partygoers who allegedly refuse to cooperate with contract tracers who want to ask them about their participation at a gathering that is believed to have been a coronavirus cluster. The eight individuals have reportedly dodged communication with tracers after attending a Rockland County party hosted last month in New York City at which the host exhibited symptoms of COVID-19. According to officials, those who refuse to cooperate will be fined $2,000 for every day of noncompliance.
Police and crime expert Heather Mac Donald told the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that white cops do not disproportionately kill black suspects and are less likely to shoot them than minority cops. The message: Contrary to the narrative from Black Lives Matter and the anti-cop mainstream media, the unfortunate death of George Floyd at the hands of police was an outlier and not typical of police in general or their interactions with black Americans in particular.
Almost a full two months after the season officially ended, winter reared its ugly head in much of the United States over the weekend. A winter-type Polar Vortex has caused record cold and extremely late season snow from the Rockies to the Atlantic Ocean. What's responsible for this late season cold? If you listen to climate alarmists, the answer is simple: global warming.

In an industry largely dominated by government monopoly, private ambulance services offer a great illustration of the importance of a free market. In fact, by competing not only with one another, but also government services, they show that — once again — the private sector is better able to handle almost anything.
A key essential freedom, and one that is a natural right that may not be restricted by government, is the freedom to associate with whom you want, when you want. This is the foundation for much of the market economy, since in the market — ideally — you get to choose whom you buy from and whom you sell to. Furthermore, this freedom is the foundation for travel. In other words, you are free to choose to travel to the next town, county, state, or elsewhere to visit friends or family, or do business for any other inscrutable purpose you might have, subject only to the requirement that you not erode someone else’s private property rights.
Before former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg threw his hat into the 2020 presidential race, he defended the New York Police Department’s use of “stop, question and frisk” policing. At a United States Naval Academy’s 2019 Leadership Conference, Bloomberg said, “We focused on keeping kids from going through the correctional system ... kids who walked around looking like they might have a gun, remove the gun from their pockets and stop it.” He claimed that as a result of his policy, New York’s murder rate fell from 650 a year to 300 the year he left office.
In New York, once found to be the least free state, politicians are working overtime trying to make ex-NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ill-fated large soda ban seem the norm. The latest example is a proposal in Long Island’s Suffolk County to ban smoking “in apartment complexes, condominiums, and multi-family dwellings,” writes CBS New York, with violators facing up to a $1,000 fine.
MADRID — Numerous scientists and experts have argued that the alarmists peddling hysteria about the man-made global-warming hypothesis are behaving as members of a religious cult while claiming to be acting on the basis of science. Instead of rejecting or revising their earlier dire warnings of climate catastrophe based on the growing body of scientific evidence arguing against their alarmism, they cling to their discredited dogma that environmental doomsday is fast approaching.
New Yorker Wilmer Maldonado Rodriguez had agreed to testify against MS-13 gang members, a brave move considering their reputation for viciousness. But he’ll never get the chance.Rodriguez was found bludgeoned to death on Sunday, February 2, behind an abandoned home in New Cassel, Long Island, according to Nassau County police. Moreover, the police told reporters that another witness associated with the case was shot at in New Cassel January 30.
“I can’t believe they let me out,” Gerod Woodberry told a detective. Woodberry was right to be surprised. He’d already been charged in four bank robbery cases and now had just been charged with collecting $1,000 from a fifth bank. At least he’d learned a lesson, though — that he could do it again. And four days later the 42-year-old allegedly hit a sixth bank. That’s when he was finally held. Enabling this crime spree were New York State’s new bail laws, says critics. The problem?
A prominent psychoanalyst is currently on a speaking tour in which he argues that simply being white is a mental condition that one acquires by being born Caucasian. The presentation, entitled “On Having Whiteness,” is being given by Dr. Donald Moss and is targeted toward other psychoanalysts and social workers who can earn continuing education credits for attendance.
