  • Boston Globe: Gun Confiscation is Needed… and Impossible

    Ammoland ^ | 24 November, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    The Boston Globe recent ran an article where it acknowledged the obvious: the long term goal of the gun control movement (recently relabeled as  “gun safety”), is to confiscate a large number of Americans' firearms. The Globe has almost everything else wrong in its article, but they are honest about the desire for gun confiscation.From the other words, the proposals aren’t just difficult to enact in the current political climate; their practical effects would also be quite limited. On occasion, though, leading Democrats will make oblique reference to a more sweeping policy change: seizing a huge number of...

    Imagine a candidate for public office so shameless that she’ll make up a nonexistent devotion to religion to try to appeal to voters. Now imagine a candidate who doesn’t have to do it, because a local newspaper will do it for her. The Boston Globe in its shilling for U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Morrissey Boulevard) has sunk to depths that not even the object of its affection has gone to. Here’s the money paragraph in the Globe’s profile this weekend of Elizabeth-Warren-as-religious-person: ...
  • Is Boston racist? Poll shows city is split — along racial lines

    Bostonians are fairly evenly divided over whether theirs is a racist town, 42 percent saying yes and 45 percent believing it is not, according to a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, views vary dramatically among the races themselves. Fifty-seven percent of those who identify as black said the city is racist, compared with 37 percent of those who call themselves white. Hispanics fell in the middle, with 44 percent believing their hometown is racist.

    Days before he was fired, Comey asked for money for Russia investigation Days before he was fired, James B. Comey, the former FBI director, asked the Justice Department for a significant increase in money and personnel for the bureau’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election, three officials with knowledge of his request told the New York Times. Comey asked for the resources during a meeting last week with Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who wrote the Justice Department’s memo that was used to justify the firing of the FBI director this week. Read the full story...
  • The GOP must stop Trump

    Donald J. Trump’s vision for the future of our nation is as deeply disturbing as it is profoundly un-American. It is easy to find historical antecedents. The rise of demagogic strongmen is an all too common phenomenon on our small planet. And what marks each of those dark episodes is a failure to fathom where a leader’s vision leads, to carry rhetoric to its logical conclusion. The satirical front page of this section attempts to do just that, to envision what America looks like with Trump in the White House. It is an exercise in taking a man at his...

    ‘DO YOU believe,” CNBC’s Joe Kernen asked Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency’s new director, in an interview last Thursday, “that it’s been proven that CO2 is the primary control knob for climate?” Replied Pruitt: “No. I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do, and there’s tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact. So no — I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see. But we don’t know that yet. We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis.”...

    If you are not already apoplectic that Russian hackers, according to the CIA, meddled in the recent presidential campaign to game the system in Donald Trump’s favor, then consider what impossibly steep recompense Vladimir Putin will demand for making Trump the most powerful person in the world. Of course, Trump thinks he’s all-powerful because his flimsy ego, which is more suited for poorly attended victory tour stops than daily intelligence briefings, simply can’t entertain an alternate narrative. He’s also busy stacking his Cabinet with Putin-approved appointees, like secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson, ExxonMobil’s chief executive. Trump is too vain...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 8/22/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The editorial board of the Boston Globe loves Hillary Clinton and would never do anything to harm her. Nevertheless, it is having a tough time making believe it swallows her lies or the lies the paper itself tells in defending the Clinton Foundation. In fact, they are so concerned about the problem the Clinton Foundation is causing Hillary Clinton’s campaign to be our next president that they have warned her to mend her ways. This, of course, is like telling a lion to stop eating everything in sight. The Clintons are criminals who see only dollar signs in the world...

    General Colin Powell, one of the nation's most prominent African-American leaders, put some of the blame on Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. for the confrontation that has become a raging controversy. Asked in an interview airing on CNN's "Larry King Live" tonight whether Gates was wrong to confront Cambridge police Sergeant James Crowley before being arrested in his own home, Powell replied, "I'm saying that Skip, perhaps in this instance, might have waited a while, come outside, talked to the officer, and that might have been the end of it. "I think he should have reflected on whether or...

    Russia is not the country you think it is. Its economy is smaller than South Korea’s. Its people are poorer than Kazakhstan’s. It trails Finland in technology. And it has a smaller military budget than Saudi Arabia... ...Russia hosted the Olympics, punched Georgia in the nose, took back the Crimea, invaded Ukraine, flew bombers through NATO airspace, built military bases in the Arctic, and generally flexed and posed like an oiled, aged, but still buff, body builder. And we’ve been paying increasingly rapt attention, not noticing the geriatric walker hidden just off stage. A closer look is almost shocking. According...

    About 100 Syrian refugees are being placed in a small city in Vermont, the home of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, and they are not getting an altogether warm welcome. In fact, when residents of Rutland, Vermont, found out about the secretly negotiated deal to seed their community with migrants from a Middle Eastern hotbed of Sunni radicalism, they were livid. They packed a local library for an “informational” meeting Thursday night. At least 20 of them stood outside with protest signs, demanding that their mayor explain why he negotiated the entire deal with the federal resettlement contractors behind closed doors...

    The Boston Globe may have had some fun with its fake front page mocking Donald Trump, but the paper most likely did Trump a favor. And it probably did the paper more harm than good. While the Globe went for the parody tongue in cheek, it ended up biting its tongue instead. Look at it this way, The Boston Globe has a daily print readership and digital subscription of 245,572 customers. Donald Trump gathered 313,313 votes in the GOP Massachusetts presidential primar

    Washington Times ^ | 4/10/16 | Jennifer Harper
    The Boston Globe spent much time and energy to craft a realistic looking but frankly fake front page Sunday, all for an editorial titled “The GOP must stop Trump.” It consisted of imaginary speculation about the nation under the guidance of President Donald Trump — whose “vision for the future of our nation is as deeply disturbing as it is profoundly un-American,” the news organization said. Headlines ran amok, ranging from “Deportations to Begin” to “U.S. soldiers refuse orders to kill ISIS families.” It is an odd, ambitious and detailed project doubtless involving multiple reporters, designers and editors tasked with...

    There is a powerful symbolism in the impending collapse of Iraq’s Mosul dam. Built on the cheap by Saddam Hussein in the early 1980s, it holds back up to 2.9 trillion gallons, roughly twice as much as Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans. We all know what happened when Hurricane Katrina breached the levees around Pontchartrain’s south shore in 2005. No hurricane is needed to breach the Mosul dam. Built on a weak foundation of soluble gypsum, its stability has always depended on continuous grouting. In 2007 the US Army Corps of Engineers, alarmed by what they had found after the...

    New Hampshire Republicans can do their party a critical service on Feb. 9 by voting for an experienced political figure with a record of results, and thus dealing a blow to the divisive, demagogic candidates running on nativism and other political simplicities. The Globe urges them to support John Kasich, whose record as governor of Ohio shows him to be a pragmatic, fiscally responsible executive, but one who is also concerned with helping the poor. His success in that important swing state, and his record as a moderate conservative who is willing to compromise in pursuit of results, suggests he...
