  • Robert De Niro: ‘Of course I want to punch’ President Trump in the face

    While appearing on The View Friday morning, Robert De Niro addressed controversial comments he made about wanting to punch President Donald Trump in the face. His feelings haven’t changed. “I said that because he said that about somebody, that he would like to punch them in the face,” the actor told cohost Joy Behar. “How dare he say that to the crowd? How dare he say the things he does? Of course I want to punch him in the face.”
  • SJC sides with teens in global warming fight State not fulfilling its obligations

    Four Massachusetts teens who say they were sick of watching the state drag its feet on global warming went to court — and yesterday came away with a historic victory that could have lasting effects for decades. The Supreme Judicial Court has sided with Olivia Gieger and Shamus Miller of Wellesley High School, and Isabel Kain and James Coakley of Boston Latin School — high school kids who sued the Department of Environmental Protection. The court agreed with them that the state has failed to fulfill its legal obligation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “It’s so surreal. I always

    Bernie Sanders couldn’t have made Hillary Clinton look any more Wall Street if the split screen during last night’s CNN debate showed her lighting stogies with $100 bills at a Delmonico’s table festooned with Baked Alaska and snifters full of brandy, alongside cronies J.P. Morgan and Gordon Gekko.

    “This is what democracy looks like!” jubilant insurgents screamed last night as they lay siege to the University of Illinois at Chicago pavilion, effectively choking off the exercise of free speech at the Donald Trump rally. “Black Lives Matter” activists, Bernie Sanders supporters and other assorted “revolutionaries” then stormed the streets and tussled with police, Trump backers and anybody else who got in their way.

    Bernie Sanders blazed across the Bay State yesterday, drawing record crowds, name-dropping Elizabeth Warren and greeting rapturous crowds on his first campaign tour of Massachusetts. “As your senator, Elizabeth Warren, reminds us: This is a rigged economy. Heads, they win. Tails, you lose,” the self-avowed socialist told more than 20,000 Boston supporters. “We’re going to create an economy that works for the middle class and not just the 1 percent.” The Democratic hopeful first stopped in Springfield, and then made his way to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, where he drew deafening cheers with his signature impassioned pledges to...

    Recent history shows that predicting a decline on Donald Trump’s popularity is risky for pundits. Nevertheless, there are some signs that his appeal may be wearing thin.  But keep in mind that many pundits (and probably pollsters) have an animus against Trump (and his followers), and polls can be manipulated in many ways. Here are the straws in the wind: The Boston Herald reports on New Hampshire: In a major shake-up of the GOP pack in New Hampshire, front-runner Donald Trump has lost nearly half his support while two longshots — Ohio Gov. John Kasich and businesswoman Carly Fiorina...
  • Atkins: Black lives did not matter at the GOP debate

    Today marks the one-year anniversary of the shot heard ’round America — the one that left Michael Brown’s lifeless body lying on a Ferguson, Mo., street for hours and then left the nation reeling and roiling ever since. Yet watching the GOP candidates and Fox News moderators shape and prioritize the nation’s most pressing problems Thursday night, one couldn’t help but wonder: Does “Black Lives Matter” matter to them at all? In a two-hour debate, which frankly felt much longer, only two candidates were even asked about race. First, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker answered a question about the Black Lives...

    We knew it was a matter of when, not if, we’d be hit again by Islamist terrorists on our own soil. Just last Sunday, two ISIS-sympathizing terrorists, clad in body armor and wielding assault rifles, attacked a Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas. Luckily, they were killed before they could slaughter the people attending the event. Now U.S. military bases and installations are stepping up security, as FBI Director James Comey is warning that there are “hundreds, maybe thousands” of people across the country who are being recruited by ISIS with orders to attack the U.S. Security...

    Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul needs to Etch A Sketch his political strategy pronto. Anyone who thinks that trash-talking your own party will win over voters in a very crowded presidential field needs to be sent packing. Paul has given media interviews saying the GOP brand “sucks.” And in a thinly veiled slap at his fellow Senate Republicans, he has said, “These barnacled enablers have never met a war they didn’t like.” If that’s not bad enough, he’s now blaming the hawks in his party for ISIS. Never mind 9/11 and all the Democrats who voted for the War in...

    Authorities today released surveillance footage showing police and FBI shooting terror suspect Usaamah Rahim in a Roslindale parking lot nearly a week ago. The video, taken from a camera placed across the parking lot, shows officers approaching a person authorities identified as Rahim after he walked to a bus stop on Tuesday morning. A marked Boston police cruiser arrives to the scene as Rahim walks into the parking lot surrounded by several officers, the video shows. Officers appear to have their guns holstered before drawing them as they back up from Rahim. After a few moments, Rahim then drops to...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) RINDGE, N.H. — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz laughed off his starring role as a “Capitulating Canadian,” dressed up in fighting clothes, in the first attack ad of the 2016 presidential campaign launched by a U.S. Sen. Rand Paul super PAC — and vowed not to retaliate against his Kentucky rival. “Well, I have to say I chuckled. I’ve never seen myself portrayed as a World Wrestling Federation person, even though I guess it was one that I was not supposed to win,” Cruz told the Herald after a town hall event at Franklin Pierce University last night. “It’s politics....

    Thank you, jury! In case you had any lingering doubts about the wisdom of these 12 good men and women, consider the scurvy crew that’s frothing at the mouth over the fate of the tousle-haired All-American boy on the cover of Rolling Stone. Moonbats, NPR, The Boston Globe, terrorists — but I repeat myself. A crackpot nun was flown up here from New Orleans five times on the taxpayers’ dime to gaze into Tousle Hair’s dreamy brown eyes and attest to his EBT card-carrying Third World hunkiness. The Joker gives the courthouse camera the finger, and now the jury gives...

    The former governor of Florida, John (or as he prefers to be called, Juan) Ellis Bush, doesn't appear to have a lot of support among Republicans, as opposed to Republicans in Name Only (RINOs), who absolutely adore him. But Juan isn't sweating it. He's rolling in dough, and more importantly, he's rolling in opponents. Have you ever heard of a "straw" candidate? When you have a weak front-runner that can't reach 50 percent, often a third, or a fourth, or even a fifth candidate suddenly jumps into the race. If he has a name similar to that of the strongest...

    It looked like the scene in “Back to the Future”: A van screeches through a parking lot, pedal to the metal, disrupting the quiet and bringing forth pure chaos. In the movie version it was a van full of angry Libyan terrorists bent on snuffing out “Doc Brown” and “Marty McFly,” but last week in Iowa it was Hillary Clinton whose campaign van began final approach toward the entrance of a community college — press and supporters in waiting — when suddenly Hillary hit the afterburners and the so-called “Scooby van” flew right by, leaving fans bewildered and media members...

    Jeb Bush and Scott Walker both land in New Hampshire today — but this is Walker’s state to lose. Bush is all name, Walker is all game. The last time the former Florida governor spent any real time politicking in the Granite State, the Old Man of the Mountain was intact. But time and erosion took their toll. That natural marvel crumbled in 2003, leaving only memories and photos of better days to preserve the legend. Sound familiar, Jeb?

    Hillary Clinton is probably the last person Sarah Palin wants to see in the Oval Office. Which makes Palin’s near-endorsement of Clinton a bit of a head-scratcher. But Palin, despite the smears back in 2008, is a lot smarter than the left-leaning press has ever been willing to admit. “I would like to see women run for the higher office. I think America certainly is ready for more female candidates at that upper echelon,” Palin told Mario Lopez on “Extra” when he asked about a Clinton run. And the stunned speculation about why Palin would say anything nice about Clinton...

But he admits getting nervous when he thinks about a certain Massachusetts Democrat running the White House. “I’m more ... concerned about Elizabeth Warren than I am about Hillary Clinton,” West said in an interview on Boston Herald Radio.

    SALEM (MA)— Moments after learning he’ll spend the next three years in prison, Daniel Eremian unloaded on his brother-in-law, Congressman John Tierney, calling the Salem Democrat “the biggest liar in the world.” “He knew everything that was going on,” said Eremian, 62, the former owner of Brodie’s Pub in Peabody who now lives in Boca Raton, Fla. “He sat in the boxes with bookies at Fenway Park.” He called Tierney’s claims to the contrary “hogwash.” Tierney, through his spokeswoman, Kathryn Prael, denied Eremian’s claims in a statement earlier tonight. “Today, clearly bitter at having lost his case and harboring old...
