Disgraced Andrew Cuomo abandoned the New York governor’s mansion last week, leaving nearly 15,000 dead nursing home residents in his wake as a result of a catastrophic executive order forcing their facilities to take in COVID-19-infected patients. He also left behind a bevy of female underlings with a mountain of sordid sexual harassment allegations. And, reportedly, Cuomo also ditched his poor dog, whom two state troopers claim he tried to pawn off to any willing taker.

But that’s not all.

In the dark of night, safe from public scrutiny or accountability, Coward Cuomo granted clemency to one of the radical left’s most notorious anti-cop convicts — a man whose family’s elite privilege I’ve chronicled for the past 19 years. David Gilbert is the Weather Underground domestic terrorist sentenced to 75 years-to-life in prison for his role in the infamous 1981 Brink’s robbery in Nyack, New York. Gilbert and his wife, Kathy Boudin, were leaders in the 1960s group of rich-kid agitators who bombed government buildings and corporate headquarters and aided convicted felons in jailbreaks.

The married militants acted as chauffeurs for the Black Liberation Army robbers who held up a Brink’s truck at a Rockland County mall and stole more than \$1.6 million. Two of the holdup victims gunned down in the botched Brink’s robbery were police officers. One was a private security guard. All three were military veterans from working-class backgrounds.

As I’ve noted previously in my columns dating back to 2002, Gilbert and Boudin’s abandoned son, Chesa, is the pampered Rhodes Scholar and now pro-criminal district attorney in San Francisco who has faithfully whitewashed his biological parents’ crimes (and those of his unrepentant adoptive parents, Weather Underground poster couple Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn).

Celebrating the clemency order this week, Chesa Boudin claimed that his father “never intended harm.”

What a steaming crock of San Francisco street manure.

Gilbert was defiant at trial and has called himself a “political prisoner” for the entirety of his 40-year imprisonment, which he has spent advising Black Lives Matter leaders and other fledgling Marxist militant groups. Gilbert called the deadly shootings and robbery “revolutionary expropriation.” As one of his sycophants explained, the domestic terrorist crimes were “aimed at supplying financial support for the Black Revolutionary Army, a militant spin-off from the Black Panther Party.”

Reminder: In 1973, Black Liberation Army/Black Panther member Joanne Chesimard (“Assata Shakur”) shot and killed New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a traffic stop. The gunfight also left her brother-in-law, Black Liberation Army leader Zayd Malik Shakur, dead. At the time, the Black Liberation Army had been tied to the murders of more than 10 police officers across the country. Chesimard, Zayd Shakur and another member were wanted for questioning in the murder of two of those cops when they were stopped.


Chesimard was convicted and sentenced to life in 1977 but escaped from prison two years later with help from violent left-wing accomplices. One of those thugs, Black Liberation Army killer Tyrone Rison, admitted to participating in a series of armored-car robberies, including a \$250,000 heist in the Bronx on June 2, 1981, that left a Brink’s guard dead. Rison also confessed to taking part in the planning of the Brink’s robbery in which Boudin said his father and mother meant “no harm.”

I remind you, again, as I have for the past two decades, that police officers Waverly Brown and Edward O’Grady and Brink’s guard Peter Paige were murdered during the homicidal siege. Brown, who served in the Air Force after the Korean War, had two grown daughters and a teenage son. O’Grady, who served in the Marines and did two tours of duty in Vietnam, left behind a wife and three children — 6, 2 and 6 months old. Paige, a Navy veteran, also left behind a wife and three kids — 19, 16 and 9.

If you care to take a stand against Cuomo’s last act of remorseless corruption and against the anarchotyranny that grips our country still today, please consider contributing to the O’Grady-Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund, which honors the memory of the fallen Nyack Police Department officers by supporting students pursuing careers in law enforcement.

  1. As usual, I was in agreement with you throughout, Mrs. Malkin, but then I got to that last paragraph. Honoring the slain cops in some way in understandable, but giving money to support more cops in order to take a stand against Anarcho-Tyranny? I don’t think so.

    From all the big events in the streets I’ve seen lately, law enforcement is on the Tyranny side of that Anarcho-Tyranny. You saw it yourself at that Support-the-Blue (or whatever) rally in Colorado in which you almost got beat up. I read your own report on it. Whose side were the majority of the cops on then and there?

    We patriotic Americans are on our own. We can not depend on the police to come down on the right side of the ctrl-left/alt-right divide. We’ve seen a pretty bad track record of “just following orders” out of these people.

  2. It is hard to fathom Ms Malkin’s rage. Why all the hostility? What Ms Malkin forgets, as usual, is that rage on one side typically provokes rage on the other side. It is an action reaction cycle. The 1960s radicals of which Ms Malkin speaks were ahead of their times in observing that America is increasingly dominated by the 1%. Corporate America wanted those radicals silenced and imprisoned so that they could continue to amass wealth and destroy the American middle class. That is where we sit today. Because of the likes of Ms Malkin who with what seems like mindlessness celebrate state oppression we continue to lock up and silence critics of big state control. That you Ms Malkin for reminding us that you disapprove of middle class America.

    make these men and their families any more deserving of sympathy?

    Meanwhile, entirely because of Cuomo, a couple of Proud Boys are in Rikers for not losing a fight to some Antifa scum who confronted them in the street. Cuomo is a pig.

    When I posted my comment #3, no others were up. Due to a bug in the website software, I was thus unable to edit it.

    If the time stamp of this #1 is correct, then it was in moderation (aka “whimmed,” for those who have tried to make heterodox comments under Mr. Sailer’s blog that he at least acknowledges moderating) for approximately 20 hours.

    This has been an issue with Mrs. Malkin’s columns for a while.

    1. Who moderates the comments about her columns?

    2. What accounts for these delays?

  6. @Greta Handel

    Greta, if comments end up on the site, which is almost all the time for me (with less than average on Paul Kersey’s blog), they will be in time order … eventually.

    These long delays are indeed a problem, as it’s pretty hard to have a conversation when comments take 4 to 24 hours (or more!) to appear. I had that problem on iSteve for about the first half the time I commented but he (I assume) changed it.

    I have speculated before how this works, Greta, but never got any info. off the site or a blogger about it: I think that there is a setting that bloggers and columnists can set. Mrs. Malkin may have hers on manual, as I’m positive Steve Sailer does. Mrs. Malkin is syndicated all over and does all kind of political activist work, so she probably doesn’t have the time to monitor the comments here very closely.

    OTOH, for some columnists, they must have some auto setting like “publish every 1/2 hour” or what-have-you. Mrs. Malkin’s could be on a long one. On Ron Paul’s, though, I think it’s on a pretty quick schedule. He’s published in so many places that I doubt he would ever get around to reading comments here, same as Pat Buchanan. That’s speculation, mind you, but it makes sense.

    Thank you for noticing Michelle’s cognitive dissonance.

    She loses credibility with each and every AGW obeisant expression.

  8. @Harry Huntington

    The 60s radicals wanted a Bolshevik government. It is their, and your, ilk that hate the middle class. Your post is pure leftist sewage.

    Their jobs placed them in harm’s way. So, to answer your question – yes.

  10. @Greta Handel

    Just as 1 data point, Greta, my reply to you took at least 7 hours to get posted. It may not be a time interval, but just a regular run of some script (every 8 hours, every 12? I dunno.)

  11. Tim E. says:

    You call them cops – how about Jannissarys protecting Federal Reserve notes. Paper issued debt money – which is godless.

    Perhaps those cops should have chosen better who they would protect.

    And some of those PO’s served in foreign wars – working to kill people for the MIC and who never presented a threat to their families in America. How noble.

    So Cuomo is “one of them”. Welcome to the Real World.

    Agree with @Quartermaster, Their jobs placed them in harm’s way, we citizen have now power

  13. @Quartermaster

    You write that as a slogan not a criticism. What is per se wrong with what you term a Bolshevik government? Plainly a look at the present US system shows that it is dominated by the 1%, large corporations, and private equity. It is in no sense of the term (as explained for example by Aristotle in the Politics) “democratic.” “Special interests” have purchase the Congress and most state legislatures. The judiciary is profoundly anti-democratic and courts interpret the Constitution and statutes to mean whatever they choose. How is the present US government at all different from what you term “Bolshevik”? 1960s radicals did not hate the middle class. They disliked the military. They disliked corporations. They disliked the rich. In every “dislike” they have proved to be quite prescient. What today we call “liberalism” (so called modern democratic capitalism) has proven to be a failure at every turn. What exactly are you defending?
