    Alexander Ciccolo, 25, the son of a Boston police captain, pled guilty on Monday to plotting an Islamic State terrorist attack on a college campus. He will face up to 20 years in prison for charges of providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, attempting to use weapons of mass destruction, illegal weapons possession, and assault with a dangerous weapon. The Berkshire Eagle runs down the details of Ciccolo’s case: Ciccolo was arrested July 4, 2015, after he allegedly accepted a small cache of weapons from an FBI informant. He had come to the attention of authorities after his...

    John Kerry has colluded with the Iranian regime to preserve the Iran deal from its prospective undoing by the president of the United States. Matt Viser calls it “shadow diplomacy” in his Boston Globe article breaking the story. Isn’t this the kind of thing for which then Acting Attorney Sally Yates sicced the FBI on Michael Flynn? Because it allegedly violated the Logan Act? Why, yes, it is. (I requested a comment from Yates this morning via email.) Yates won’t be talking to me, I’m pretty sure, but we can to turn to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on...

    Alan Dershowitz and Richard Painter Get in Tense Clash: Mueller May Be a Good American But ‘You’re Not’An MSNBC debate between Alan Dershowitz and Senate candidate Richard Painter got tense and personal as they clashed over Robert Mueller. Painter praised Mueller as a “highly professional prosecutor” with a great record and said it’s a “tragedy” that the country now has to endure all of this. Dershowitz said the White House’s behavior may be a “tragedy” too, but so is Mueller’s office, and he described the special counsel as someone with a “mixed reputation” in Boston from before he headed the...

    Another week has gone by in which the media covering the president of the United States has committed reckless malpractice more disgraceful than usual. Last Friday, President Trump hosted athletes from the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics at the White House. For 20 minutes he celebrated their accomplishments, often calling them to the podium and joking with them. It was a ceremony of pure goodwill, and the president, as any good hotelier would, made sure each one had a memorable experience. When he brought the gold medalists from the curling team up to the podium to great applause, one of...
  • More Cities Are Banishing Highways Underground — And Building Parks on Top

    The Pew Charitable Trusts ^ | April 2, 2018 | Martha T. Moore
    The most popular place to put a city park is, increasingly, on a highway. Cities looking to boost their downtowns, or to improve downtrodden neighborhoods, are creating “highway cap parks” on decks constructed over freeways that cut through the urban center. Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Denver and Dallas have deck parks underway. Atlanta, Houston, Minneapolis and Santa Monica, California, are among the cities considering similar projects. In crowded cities, highway deck parks are a way to create new acreage and provide green space that can spur downtown development. Capping a highway to create a park also can reconnect urban neighborhoods sliced apart...

    There are a lot of things that make Desiree Linden’s victory at the 2018 Boston Marathon a race story for the ages. There’s the headline you’ve been seeing everywhere: She’s the first American woman to win the race in over three decades! And if you saw even a single picture taken on Marathon Monday, you know that she ran in some of the worst weather in the race’s history. (In case you didn’t, here are 15 pictures that captured the 2018 Boston Marathon.)Then, there’s the comeback component: Linden was two seconds away from victory at the 2011 Boston Marathon, and...

    1775: An expedition of 700 British regulars under the command of Lt. Col. Frances Smith departs Boston to seize and destroy military stores of the Massachusetts Militia in Concord. At dawn, 70 militia members led by Capt. John Parker meet the British at Lexington, and the two sides briefly skirmish. The Americans withdraw and regroup, attacking the redcoats again at North Bridge with a much larger force, forcing the British to turn back towards Boston. The American Revolution has begun. 1861: 86 years to the day after the “shot heard round the world,” Massachusetts volunteers headed for Washington, D.C. are...

    President Obama did not attend the funeral of his late aunt Zeituni Onyango. Instead, he went golfing. The New York Times reports: After Zeituni Onyango, the woman President Obama once called Auntie, died in a South Boston nursing home this month, her closest relatives gathered her belongings at her nearby apartment. There, framed photographs of her with the president covered the wall. Weeping before a polished wood coffin at her wake this past Saturday, they described Ms. Onyango, the half sister of the president’s father, as “the spirit of the Obama family” and talked about raising money to send her...

    We should not be clamoring for special counsel Robert Mueller to be fired. That ship has sailed. While the Russian collusion investigation seems to be withering away, having yielded no evidence that might impugn President Trump, a new investigation has been spun off in New York City, targeting his attorney, Michael Cohen. Since that investigation is separate from the Russia investigation, some are hoping Attorney General Jeff Sessions can reauthorize himself out of recusement and squash it.

    At the Simmons College leadership conference in Boston on Thursday, former first lady Michelle Obama praised her husband’s presidency while taking a veiled swipe at the current occupant of the White House. She said that her husband’s administration was “like having the good parent at home.” In Michelle Obama’s warped view, her husband filled the national role of a “responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.” This analogy is ridiculous as a “good parent” would not practically double the national debt, socialize healthcare, unconstitutionally grant amnesty to illegal aliens and...

    As of now, according to the Federal Elections Commission, the Democratic National Committee is in debt to the tune of $6,271,605.47. For the period between 2017-2018, total individual contributions to the DNC were $61,939,222.68, and its total cash on hand is $10,093,347.47. That is not good news for the party trying to rally momentum for a big “blue wave” this November.

    So the producer of the new film about Ted Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick scandal says some “very powerful people” tried to kill his movie. What a surprise — NOT! “Unfortunately,” Byron Allen told Variety last week, “very powerful people tried to put pressure on me not to release this movie. They went out of their way to try and influence me in a negative way.” Byron Allen is a TV comedian from the ’80s who has become a successful Hollywood mogul. He just bought what’s left of The Weather Channel for $300 million. By the way, he’s also black, so you would...
  • California Commits Massive Medicaid Fraud

    American Spectator ^ | April 2, 2018 | David Catron
    California is indeed the Golden State where Medicaid is concerned. The HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) has found that, by exploiting Obamacare’s expansion of the program, California has enrolled hundreds of thousands of ineligible adults in Medicaid. Consequently, the state has bilked the federal government out of more than $1 billion in funding to which the state was not entitled. Indeed, these figures probably understate the amount of money that California officials have fraudulently extracted from the taxpayers. The OIG sampled a mere six-month period, from October 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015, to arrive at its damning assessment....

    The Presidential Personnel Office (PPO) sounds like one heck of a time. According to a recent Washington Post report, the office tasked with vetting presidential appointees had the audacity to partake in alcoholic drinking games, happy hours, and even use of tobacco products. Egads! “The Presidential Personnel Office (PPO) is little known outside political circles. But it has far-reaching influence as a gateway for the appointed officials who carry out the president’s policies and run federal agencies.Under President Donald Trump, the office was launched with far fewer people than in prior administrations. It has served as a refuge for...

    A Boston judge has cleared a group of climate protesters who were facing criminal charges stemming from a 2016 protest over a pipeline in West Roxbury, citing the necessity of their actions in a potentially landmark ruling. “It may well be the first of its kind in a case involving climate change, in that it’s a judicial recognition of the measures that we need to take to address climate change,” said Andrew Fischer, an attorney for some of the defendants. “In that sense, it is a revolutionary step.” The protesters, including Karenna Gore, the daughter of former Vice President Al...

In a detailed statement about the experience, which he described as bewildering and intimidating at times, Malloch said the federal...
