    Some city residents worried about “watering down” what it means to be an American have hit the phones to object to a proposal before the City Council today to allow noncitizens the right to vote in municipal elections, Councilor Michael Flaherty told the Herald. “I got a lot of calls today from folks who are concerned we are watering down what it means to be a citizen of the United States and have the privilege to vote,” Flaherty said.

    What a fine-tuned machine our state is when it comes to clamping down on its own residents, as witnessed Thursday when Boston’s Licensing Board took a shot across the bow of a local small business owner. Naveen Kapoor, owner of the Quality Market in Brighton, was caught on camera moving beer from that store down the street to his other shop, Quality Liquors in Allston. He told the Licensing Board that he was transferring the suds because Quality Liquors had run out of several beer brands. That is a big no-no. According to the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, “All licensed...
  • Drug-dealing dean shot student for not selling enough weed

    BOSTON — A former high school dean known as an anti-violence advocate was convicted Thursday of shooting and nearly killing a student he had recruited to sell marijuana for him. Shaun Harrison, 58, was found guilty of all charges, including armed assault with intent to murder, by a Suffolk Superior Court jury in its second day of deliberations. “Shaun Harrison was really a fraud, he was living a lie, and it was clearly exposed in this case,” District Attorney Dan Conley said. “Not only was he not a man of God or a role model for young people, he manipulated...
  • Harvard gives Hillary Clinton award for 'transforming society' -- even when you lose you get a trop

    Clinton on Friday for her “transformative impact on society.” That’s not a misprint. The prestigious Ivy League university is giving the woman who ran for president and lost, twice, an award for transforming society. Harvard said it picked Clinton because of her advocacy for human rights, her work as a legislator, and her leadership around the world on behalf of America. If “transformative impact” and Hillary Clinton in the same sentence has you shaking your head, you’re not alone. She not only lost the presidency twice, she has wasted the last year and a half going on tour around the...

    Donald Trump was wanted by two pro Baseball teams. Not only does Trump know how to play hardball in the business world and as president of the United States, but it turns out he could play with the best of them in the baseball world. President Donald Trump was heavily scouted and wanted by two pro teams when coming out of his high school military prep academy to be a pro prospect. The Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies were keen to sign up the first basemen from NY Military Academy before he went off to college at Fordham...

    dated Mar 29, 2015 BOSTON – The FBI has positively identified the two robbers who in 1990 committed the largest art heist in history, stealing over $500 million worth of masterpieces from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum here. One of them is a local ex-con who was free only because his lawyer, now Secretary of State John Kerry, was able to get his first-degree murder conviction overturned in 1982. “We got justice,” Kerry told a reporter in 2009 of his work for the notorious hoodlum, “and I’ll go to my grave proud that we did.” Multiple law-enforcement sources here have...

    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 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...
