WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — December 1, 2019 — The dominant ideas of the 2020 presidential race are emerging, especially in the Democratic primary contest. Unexpectedly, the intellectualism of Elizabeth Warren has come to define the politics of the campaign, much to her credit. Candidates, pundits, and voters are caught up in the debates about her proposals. Good or bad, right or …

Last Wednesday’s attack on Jewish students meeting at Toronto’s York University was no surprise for many of us who have seen the rise of hostility against Jews on university campuses across Canada. The Jewish students meeting had the required permission from university authorities. However, despite that they were accosted by members of York’s ‘Students Against Israeli Apartheid’ (SAIA), comprising mostly …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — November 11, 2019 — It is instructive and appalling to listen to the whining of billionaires as their power and greed are challenged by Elizabeth Warren. They are adding daily to a long history of tone-deaf and politically inept responses to real economic populism. We’re headed back in time to when the super rich were politically …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — November 4, 2019 — I have bad news. This column, for all its shortcomings, may soon be your only source of political advocacy and persuasion. Centuries of robust political debate, the heart of American democracy, are about to be killed off by a couple of mega corporations who now run our lives. The two bad boys …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — October 17, 2019 — The legal track on impeachment is colliding with the political track. The legal track is relatively straightforward. An investigation is underway to determine facts. The White House may or may not cooperate but there are witnesses being heard and documents being reviewed. At the same time a discussion is underway as to …

MOUNT VERNON, NY — October 2,  2019 — Tech companies have too much power — too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy.  Well known anti -trust cases like the breakup of AT&T in the 1980’s, and the breakup of Microsoft in 2000’s, were well founded. Why? Those companies grew by acquiring their competitors, using private information …

Weir On Human I’ve known a lot of politicians in my life, from New York City, to Long Island, to Denton County, Texas. During my 20 years as a cop in the Big Apple I had to deal with the politics within and without the department. It might be a union leader whom I opposed because he was taking us …

“Why has Sweden become the North Korea of Europe?” That’s what a Dane semi-facetiously asked Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks at a conference I attended in 2014. Vilks unconvincingly muttered about Swedes’ partiality for consensus. Now, along comes Ryszard Legutko, a Polish professor of philosophy and leading politician, with a better answer. His book, translated by Teresa Adelson, The Demon in …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — July 15, 2019 — “I am the Left.” So sayeth Andrew Cuomo. Is he? It’s a bold statement that invites scrutiny, if only because it echoes the king of France, Louis XIV, who has been forever remembered for saying, “I am the State.” That didn’t turn out well for anyone. As to Cuomo’s left-wing credentials, some …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — June 24, 2019 — We all need a functional Republican Party. One-party rule never turns out well. The trend lines in New York have been easy to see. For 20 years the GOP has been in a steady, inexorable decline. Its Assembly delegation is below a third of the house. Its Senate delegation clung to power …
