Top Headlines of the Week
Gotham’s new mayor is getting kudos for standing up to radicals on guns and crime and schools, but when it comes to election integrity the Left is taking him to the cleaners. Unchecked, it’s an electoral death sentence for Mayor Eric Adams and fair elections in New York City. The war on election fairness is being waged on two fronts — one in broad daylight, and the other from the shadows.

Months after the Biden administration announced it was dedicating an unprecedented $260 million to promote “equitable access” to government unemployment benefits the money is starting to flow so states can address disparities, increase public awareness of the program and boost the number of applicants.

Both groups have filed lawsuits exposing the laws for what they are — racist, sexist, and discriminatory on many fronts.
In the training package used at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, for example, offering a black student a basketball should be considered offensive.
Judicial Watch obtained the records, first obtained by Fox News Digital, via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The emails draw attention to records between the State Department and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), run by Dr. Anthony Fauci, that suggest U.S. officials were aware of the Chinese Communist Party withholding key information on the coronavirus before the pandemic outbreak.
