    Sen. Elizabeth Warren slammed the Trump administration after it threw a $1 billion casino project into doubt by ruling the federal government could not take land into trust for a Massachusetts tribe, an issue she has championed as she fights criticism over her disputed claims of Cherokee ancestry. The Massachusetts Democrat vowed to move forward with legislation after the Bureau of Indian Affairs admitted defeat Friday in its two-year search for a legal avenue to take 320 acres into trust on behalf of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe. The Interior Department agreed in 2015 to hold land in trust for the...

    American political leaders of both parties are paying tribute and offering prayers for ailing Arizona Sen. John McCain, but President Donald Trump has so far been silent. Neither the White House nor the president has yet spoken out after McCain's family announced Friday that the former prisoner of war and longtime public servant would no longer seek medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are praising McCain and offering prayers for his family, as is Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee....

    The big difference in President Donald Trump's re-election campaign in 2020 could be the level of support he receives from the black community. And, the man most despised by the black community could become the most pro-black president of the modern era. A Rasmussen poll released last week indicates growing support for Trump among blacks. A big part of that is economics. For the first time ever, black unemployment has fallen below six percent. That means record numbers of black men, women, and youth are employed. Trump has created opportunities where for decades, the Democrats have offered only unfulfilled promises....
  • Mitt Romney’s statement on the Charlottesville anniversary strikes a chord Trump cannot

    Mitt Romney is calling on Americans to “categorically and consistently reject racism and discrimination” on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 and on the eve of a repeat of the Unite the Right rally this year in Washington, DC. The former Massachusetts governor and current US Senate candidate in Utah issued a lengthy statement on Friday defending equality, steeped in his religious upbringing and belief that “we are all children of God.” Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, touched on a number of issues in his post. He...

    A sneak peek at the Times’s news analysis from Nov. 4, 2020. Nov. 4, 2020 In the end, a bitterly fought election came down to the old political aphorism, popularized during Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 run against George H.W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” This time, however, it was the Republican incumbent, not his Democratic challenger, who benefited from that truism. Donald J. Trump has been decisively re-elected as president of the United States, winning every state he carried in 2016 and adding Nevada, even as he once again failed, albeit narrowly, to gain a majority of the popular vote....

    President Donald Trump escalated a familiar attack on Sen. Elizabeth Warren Thursday night, mocking the Massachusetts Democrat and leading potential 2020 rival for her claim of Native American heritage. He revived his nickname for her — "the fake Pocahontas" — and told the crowd at his Montana campaign rally that should the two find themselves on a debate stage, he would challenge her to submit to genetic testing to prove that she has Native American ancestors. "I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're...

    President Donald Trump's controversial tactics at the southern border have managed to draw the ire of a powerful neighbor to the north - the Kennedys. Ethel Kennedy and her brood have been vocal about their disdain for the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy for weeks now, with Ethel herself even announcing that she would be fasting in protest. And on the eve of Fourth of July the family launched a more direct attack on the administration - and First Lady Melania Trump in particular - by breaking out some paint and and green jackets, on which they each wrote: 'I...

    A damning report just came out regarding the former State Senate President in Massachusetts. The report details how the Senate President knew about abhorrent behavior from his husband and did little to nothing to stop it. This includes giving his husband complete access to his emails and giving advice on committee chairmanships. All while his husband was trying to make sex tapes with other State Senators and a desire to 'roofie' them. "In the report, Hefner allegedly talks about making a sex tape with another senator in one instance, and in another instance, attempted to convince a Cambridge police officer...

    There has been much talk lately of a huge blue wave coming our way in November. One of those talking points is that Democrats keep winning special elections, and that part is true as since Jan 2017 to today the Democrats have won over many key special elections nationwide. However it looks like we might buck that trend in Massachusetts, check out this local State Representative Race happening in Attleboro. The election is on April 3rd and the GOP candidate is up slightly. The point is, if the GOP can win in Massachusetts - this blue trend might not really...

    So while this article itself is old, the issue is not. In the Mass Legislature HB 388 is a real bill that would give illegal immigrants the right to vote in local elections. Here are the Democrats listed as Co-Sponsors - there are probably more Democrats that support this bill but are not co-sponsors. Rep. Byron Rushing [D] Rep. Denise Provost [D] Rep. David Rogers [D] Rep. Daniel Donahue [D] Rep. Marjorie Decker [D] Rep. Jose Tosado [D] Rep. Michelle Dubois [D] Rep. Kay Khan [D] Sen. James Eldridge [D] Rep. Carlos Gonzalez [D] Rep.

    To no surprise to anyone multiple news sites are reporting that the Democrat State Senate leadership is failing in their duties to execute an impartial and fair investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct allegation that happened on and around Beacon Hill. Some of the alleged victims to the husband of Senate President Rosenburg think that the system and investigation is rigged to return the Senate President to power. This is shocking. Here is a quote: “There’s no way I would come forward,” Abraham quoted one of them as saying. “This is an investigation to clear Stan Rosenberg’s name. It’s not...

    He’s not saying Moore should go “if” the sexual assault allegations are true. He’s telling him to get out now. Mitt Romney called on Roy Moore to step aside from the Alabama Senate race Friday, becoming one of the only Republican politicians to say, unequivocally, that Moore should go in light of accusations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. (TWEET-AT-LINK) On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that four women said Moore pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were between the ages of 14 and 18. The most serious case involves Leigh Corfman, who was 14...

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (Reuters) - A two-term Cambridge, Massachusetts, city councilor and founder of an activist group that trains Muslim-Americans to run for office launched a campaign for U.S. Congress on Sunday that could make him the third Muslim in the chamber. Nadeem Mazen, 34, was set to declare his run as a Democrat for a district northwest of Boston, a seat that comes open next year as 71-year-old Representative Niki Tsongas opts not to seek a sixth term in office. The state’s best-known Muslim elected official, Mazen plans to focus his campaign on economic issues. His attempt to jump from...

    Kicking off the political campaign season, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh denounced President Trump’s policies at Monday’s annual Labor Day breakfast, saying Trump has turned his back on working families. But as he took aim at the White House, Walsh also had some choice words for union members who showcase their labor connection on the back of their cars alongside Trump bumper stickers. “Those union numbers stand for something,’’ said Walsh, highlighting the gains labor has made through the years. “They stand for healthcare; they stand for pensions and annuities; they stand for the rights and protections [of workers] ......

    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is sounding the alarm with her Democratic base, warning a Senate run by Detroit bad boy Kid Rock could be the second coming of Donald Trump. The “Wasting Time” and “All Summer Long” rap rocker-turned-country singer tweeted on Wednesday that he’s running for U.S. Senate in Michigan. Although it’s been largely dismissed so far as a publicity stunt, Warren isn’t taking any chances with the longshot Republican. “I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” Warren wrote in an email blast with the subject line “Senator Kid Rock (R-MI).”...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has a warning for President Trump: “Donald, you ain’t seen nasty yet.” Warren read aloud from her new book “This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class” and took questions at a town hall event in New York Friday, HuffPost reported. Warren blasted Trump for his economic policies, saying they are hurting the middle-class Americans who voted for him. “What Donald Trump and the Republican majority in the House and the Senate want to do to us, is they want to deliver the knockout blow to the middle class,” she said. She...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) hit President Trump for his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, calling on Congress to "get their heads out of the sand" and use a special prosecutor to investigate Trump. Trump made the bombshell announcement on Tuesday afternoon, saying it was based on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer. Trump argued in a letter to Comey that the FBI needs a new leader so it can restore "pubic trust and confidence." Warren responded to the news, saying, "we need...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is urging Democrats to focus on combatting the Trump agenda, lamenting he's been in the White House for less than 100 days. Warren declined to speculate if she could have won the party's nomination in 2016 or if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would have faired better against Trump than Hillary Clinton, telling USA Today, "We are where we are." "Donald Trump has only been here, not even 100 days yet — God, it's like dog years or something, it feels like so much has gone on. We've got to get focused on what we're going to...
