Government-Funded Researchers Sought Aborted Minorities for Organ Harvesting

The federal government gave at least $2.7 million in taxpayer money to researchers who sought out minority babies who had been aborted in order to harvest their organs, according to internal documents released Tuesday.

The University of Pittsburgh targeted minorities in its request for infant organs—including those taken from full-term babies—to create a “pipeline” for fetal research. Researchers said they needed 50 percent of the donated fetuses to be minorities and specified that 25 percent must come from black women. The Pittsburgh metropolitan area is 85 percent white and 8 percent black. Researchers stressed the importance of maintaining organ blood

Jewish Groups Slam Nina Turner’s Anti-Semitic ‘Evil Money’ Remark

Jewish groups are slamming failed congressional candidate Nina Turner, who blamed her loss on “evil money” after pro-Israel Democrats backed her opponent.

After Turner fell to pro-Israel Democrat Shontel Brown by 6 points Tuesday night, the prominent progressive said she lost because “evil money manipulated and maligned this election.” Jewish groups on Wednesday condemned the remark, which appeared to be in reference to the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent against her by Democratic Majority for Israel, which supports pro-Israel Democrats like Brown.

The Anti-Defamation League said it was “extremely troubled” by Turner’s “evil money” remark. “We are extremely troubled

GUEST COLUMN: I Survived Impeachment (Twice), Andrew Cuomo Can Too

Op-Ed by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

Very unfair what is happening to Andrew Cuomo, Democrat governor of the Great State of New York. We’ve had our disagreements in the past, but I know a Witch Hunt when I see one (Russia, Russia, Russia!). I hear the Radical Left wants to impeach him, just like Crazy Nancy and Cryin’ Chuck tried to impeach Trump. I survived, twice, and so can Governor Cuomo.

If I were advising the Governor, I would tell him to look into the massive fraud in Queens County—Forensic audit? Where are

BEASTMODE: Morgan Ortagus Says Dems Can Do More Than Call on Cuomo To Resign

Former State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said the Democratic Party should do more than just call on New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) to resign after the state’s attorney general said he sexually harassed 11 women.

“I think the Democratic Party should do more than just calling for him to resign,” Ortagus said on Tuesday night. “As I checked, going into this program, he’s still on ActBlue’s platform. ActBlue is the major fundraising apparatus of most Democrat candidates in the United States.”

Ortagus said Democrats should “stop doing fundraisers” and “shame anyone who supports him” if they really want Cuomo

Boston’s Dem Mayor Says Vaccine Passports Are Racist

Boston’s Democratic mayor on Tuesday compared vaccine passports to slave papers, saying the requirement could “create a barrier” for Boston’s minority communities.

“There’s a long history in this country of people needing to show their papers—whether we’re talking about … during slavery, post-slavery,” Mayor Kim Janey told local reporters. “We want to make sure that we are not doing anything that would further create a barrier for residents of Boston or disproportionally impact BIPOC communities.”

Janey’s comments follow New York City mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D.) announcement Tuesday that New Yorkers will be required to provide proof of COVID vaccination

Time’s Up Founder Helped Cuomo Team Smear Governor’s Accuser

The founder of a group committed to fighting sexual harassment in the workplace advised Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D., N.Y.) team on an op-ed intended to smear one of his accusers.

A report released by the New York attorney general’s office said Roberta Kaplan, the cofounder of Time’s Up, advised the Cuomo team about an op-ed the governor wrote to discredit Lindsey Boylan, a former Cuomo adviser who accused the governor of sexual misconduct in December 2020. A top Cuomo aide said Kaplan and Time’s Up CEO Tina Tchen largely approved of the op-ed. The piece, which was never published, “denied

Republicans Want US To Offer Cash Bounty to Wuhan Lab Whistleblowers

Republicans want the State Department to offer cash rewards to any person with inside information about the Chinese lab suspected of leaking the coronavirus that caused a global pandemic.

House Republicans introduced legislation last week that would mandate the State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program—which is best-known for placing bounties on the heads of global terrorist leaders—to give money to anyone with information about the coronavirus’s origins and the Chinese Communist Party’s subsequent cover-up.

The provision is part of a sprawling legislative package that would sanction China for its routine theft of American intellectual property and hacks on the U.S.

By Barbara Goldberg

Some 59% of New Yorkers think Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign after an investigation found that he groped, kissed or made suggestive comments to 11 women in violation of U.S. and state law, a Marist Poll showed on Wednesday.

After state Attorney General Letitia James unveiled the five-month independent investigation’s conclusions on Tuesday, the Democratic governor said in a video statement he has no plans to resign and denied he had acted inappropriately.

The poll of 614 randomly selected New York state adults was conducted by landline or mobile phone on Tuesday and survey questions were
