    NBC News ^ | July 6, 2018 | Jane C. Timm
    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...

    State House News ^ | 5/3/2018 | Jobs First
    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.

    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] ......

    The Boston Herald ^ | July 14, 2017 | Chris Cassidy
    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...

    Despite setbacks on his effort to repeal and replace Obamacare and court challenges to his executive orders on immigration, President Trump remains very popular among his supporters in Massachusetts. That's according to a new WBUR poll (topline results | crosstabs) of voters in towns across the central part of the state that voted for Trump in November. In Townsend, voters chose Trump over Hillary Clinton 50 to 41 percent. It's one of about 50 towns in the central part of the state that went for Trump. And they are the focus of the WBUR poll.

    It's a given that Newton liberals have little patience for anyone or anything Republican. If candidates are Republican, they must be stopped. If policies are Republican, they must be stopped. If their neighbor, colleague or parents of their kids' friends are Republican, they must be stopped from entering their liberal safe space. They'll sometimes tolerate Republican politicians if they at least appear to bend over backwards to accommodate Democrats. Charlie Baker can be tolerated, for now, and for as long as the Boston Globe approves of him. But their tolerance will stop at his re-election bid next year when they'll...

    President Trump said in an interview broadcast Saturday night that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) launching a presidential bid against him would be "a dream come true." “I think she’d lose so badly," Trump said during an interview on Fox News' "Watters' World." Trump claimed Warren, a top surrogate for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “was getting up with that craziness and that anger” in speeches on the campaign trail....

    "It appears we're going to have an old folks' home." That's the ever-outspoken Harry Reid, Nevada's retiring senior senator, talking about Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders being the unofficial early front-runners for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Warren, at 67, is the youngest of the Big Three, and she's the only one who excites both establishment Democrats and progressive activists. But is the senior senator from Massachusetts game for a presidential run? Some pundits believe she's already positioning herself for it. Warren, the former guiding light of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, recently announced she's joining the Senate's...

    CAMBRIDGE, MA — Would a fourth presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton closer to Election Day have changed the outcome? Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri thinks so — and she regrets not asking for one. Palmieri said Clinton did best directly comparing herself with now President-elect Trump. “It was Hillary unfiltered and the clarity of the choice,” she said. If she had asked, the Trump campaign would have agreed — and it wouldn’t have changed anything, said Trump’s deputy campaign manager David Bossie. After a shaky first debate, he said, Mr. Trump only got better and needed less...
