  • Disgusted McAdoo calls out TEs, line as Giants worry sets in August 29, 2016
    The Giants came away from Saturday night’s 21-20 preseason win over the Jets with a host of issues, with the sorry state of their offensive line at the head of the list. And coach Ben McAdoo knows it. “I’m expecting a lot of questions about the offensive line,” a glum-sounding McAdoo said Sunday at the...
  • Banned Maria Sharapova spends free time as … NBA intern? August 29, 2016
    Maria Sharapova was in New York City this month on a sports venture that had nothing to do with tennis or the U.S. Open.
  • Hillary practically promised a pay-to-play State Department August 29, 2016
    Unless you’re a high-ranking government official, it’s hard to get a meeting with any secretary of state. But during Hillary Clinton’s tenure, there was another way: pay up. A staggering 85 of the 154 private citizens who managed to meet or speak with her by phone donated money to the Clinton Foundation. That looks improper...
  • Brexit is actually boosting the UK economy August 29, 2016
    Two months ago, the world’s wise men were warning that if UK voters decided to “Brexit” from the European Union, they’d rain down economic crisis. Guess what? Today, Britain is fine — and has even seen a boost from its “Leave” vote. The International Monetary Fund, central-bank chiefs, academic economists — you know, the people...
  • Terry Collins diagnoses Jay Bruce: It’s all in his head August 29, 2016
    That mental health day didn’t help Jay Bruce much. The struggling right fielder singled in his first at-bat Sunday against the Phillies, but struck out in his final three trips to the plate, and has now whiffed in seven of his last eight at-bats. Since coming over to the Mets in a trade for prospect...
  • Hillary’s Kremlin connection, Trump’s play for Iowa and other notable commentary August 29, 2016
    Intel expert: Hillary’s Kremlin Connection The US-Russian “reset,” which took place while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, was a disaster — but not for the Clintons, writes former counterintelligence officer John R. Schindler at the Observer. He says Hillary encouraged, as part of the reset, tech firms to invest in a Silicon Valley-like Russian...
  • A light in the politically-correct campus darkness August 29, 2016
    As the dense fog of political correctness and lefty “sensitivity” engulfs campuses across America, a few lights still shine — and one of them flared bright last week, as the University of Chicago warned incoming freshmen that free speech still reigns there. “Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called ‘trigger...
  • New York cracks down on charities in the name of ‘ethics’ August 29, 2016
    Gov. Cuomo and legislative leaders are patting themselves on the back after the governor finally signed Albany’s latest useless ethics-reform package. But they’re pretty much the only ones cheering. Because — as the League of Women Voters’ Barbara Bartoletti put it — the law solves a problem that doesn’t exist and doesn’t even begin to...
  • Why America’s foes feel safe playing chicken with the Navy August 29, 2016
    President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran sure keeps paying dividends — negative ones. The latest: Tehran has begun confronting and harassing US warships in a series of incidents the Pentagon warns carry “a risk of escalation.” Then again, that’s a risk only if the Obama administration would actually respond to these in-your-face provocations. But, as...
  • Gabby Douglas hospitalized and must skip VMAs August 29, 2016
    Olympian Gabby Douglas says she is “resting comfortably” after being hospitalized for undisclosed reasons.

Posting a bed-ridden selfie Douglas wrote, “Out of...
