  • Socialist Party of America Releases The Names of 70 Democrat Members Of Congress Who Are Members ...

    This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. The radical Marxist-progressives (communists) took control of the democrat party some time ago. They’ve only become more emboldened with the election of Barack Obama, who was raised as a communist from birth. With their new found leader, Barack Obama, the Socialist Party of America felt secure enough to announce the names of 70 democrats in Congress that belong to their caucus.
  • Second Amendment Foundation Files For Summary Judgment In Mass Resident Alien Gun Ban Case

    07/10/2011 2:36:32 PM PDT · by marktwain ^ | 8 July, 2011 | SAF
    BELLEVUE, WA --( The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a motion for summary judgment in its lawsuit challenging a statute in Massachusetts that denies legal resident aliens the licenses required to possess a handgun in the home for self-defense, or purchase any kind of firearm. The case is known as Fletcher v. Haas. It was filed in April in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Joining SAF in this lawsuit are Commonwealth Second Amendment, a Massachusetts grassroots organization, and two British citizens, Christopher M. Fletcher of Cambridge and Eoin M. Pryal of Northboro.

    One early evening in May, a Boston police officer arrested Lizandra DeMoura for traffic violations and driving without a license. In another city, she might have been booked and released for a court hearing. But in Boston, the 18-year-old was jailed overnight, taken to court, and handed over to federal immigration agents, who hauled her away in chains.Now she is facing deportation to Brazil. “I felt like an animal,’’ DeMoura, who has lived here since she was a child, said in a recent interview in her lawyer’s office in Boston, wearing an electronic monitoring device around her ankle. Her case...

    ... the Catholic Church continues to teach that homosexual acts are "acts of grave depravity" (CCC, par. 2357) and that homosexual desires are "objectively disordered" (CCC, par 2358):There have been many last straws for Richard Iandoli.He was stung when his church’s hierarchy disparaged adoptions by gay couples, when his church emerged as a political leader against same-sex marriage, and by the way his church refers to homosexuality as “disordered.’’Earlier this month, the insult was more personal: The Boston Archdiocese stepped in and postponed an “All are Welcome’’ Mass to commemorate Gay Pride Month at Iandoli’s church, St. Cecilia on Belvidere...

    ALBANY, New York, June 21, 2011 ( – Senate Republicans in New York continue to remain silent about whether they will kill the same-sex “marriage” bill, or pass an amended version with more religious protections before going into summer recess. Since Republicans control the Senate chambers 32 – 30, they can block the legislation from coming to a floor vote, but they are staying tight-lipped about their intentions, leaving both friends and foes of gay “marriage” sitting on pins and needles. The Democrat-dominated Assembly already approved legalizing same-sex “marriage” last Wednesday, in an 80 – 63 vote. Gov. Andrew Cuomo...

    The Bruins blanked Vancouver 4-0 Wednesday night for their first NHL title since 1972. They had lost their last five Stanley Cup finals appearances since then. (June 15)" So says the brief write-up from the AP video presentation. Not only was history made, but also a major American city, Boston now has become the new title town with the Stanley Cup coming home at last. Congrats to the NHL's Boston Bruins for winning at last, after nearly forty years, the Stanley Cup. Boston, now IMHO, the new "title town" sharing with the Boston Red Soxs, Celtics, and the New England...

Our prayers are with the victims of yesterday's twisters and all those who are faced with what may seem insurmountable rebuilding challenges. The damage we saw was shocking. It was an honor to meet great MA residents as we pulled off I-91, heard their concerns and hopes for their state and country, and shared their appreciation for the East Coast's inspiring history. We handed out copies of the Constitution and asked that...

  • Barney Frank's Disastrous Cronyism (and not one word of censure)

    Corruption: How is it that a GOP politico can get drummed out of the Senate for bathroom acts while Rep. Barney Frank merits not even a flicker of censure for economically disastrous cronyism? When will the double standard end? Two years after politically motivated mortgage lending triggered the biggest collapse since the Great Depression, House Finance Committee Chairman Barney Frank, D-Mass., has been found to have helped one of his lovers, Herbie Moses, land a six-figure job at Fannie Mae, the agency at the center of the meltdown and one he had a responsibility to regulate. Instead of exerting oversight...

    FROM THE “NOW WE’VE SEEN EVERYTHING” DEPARTMENT Pigs have flown. Hell has frozen over. Democrats have voted overwhelmingly to strip police officers, teachers, and other municipal employees of their collective right to bargain over health care. This is not a misprint, nothing is wrong with your computer, and the Rat’s not lost his mind (yet). Remarkably, the 111-42 vote was led by Democrats, who say the new bill will save millions of dollars for financially strapped cities and towns. Democrats? In Massachusetts? This is the state that will probably build a Teddy Kennedy theme park some day. What the hell...
  • Massachusetts Sued Over Gun Rights of Legal Immigrants

    The Second Amendment Foundation is leading a civil action lawsuit in federal district court against Massachusetts challenging a law that denies non-U.S. citizens the right to possess a handgun in their own homes. Under the current law in Massachusetts, legal permanent residents -- who carry what is commonly referred to as a "green card" -- are not allowed to hold a firearm identification card or license to carry of any kind. Instead, they must apply for a resident alien permit, which allows a person to possess only a “low capacity” rifle or shotgun. Therein lies the case. The SAF, a...

    A Northboro resident and two gun rights groups are suing the Northboro police chief and the head of the state Firearms Records Bureau, claiming Massachusetts state law unconstitutionally bars legal immigrants from owning handguns. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court Friday, alleges Eoin M. Pryal of Northboro submitted an application for a license to carry a handgun, but Northboro police refused to accept the application because Mr. Pryal is not a U.S. citizen. A British immigrant, he is a “permanent resident alien” in the United States, according to the lawsuit. The suit is also filed on behalf of Christopher...

    Only in the state of Massachusetts could “blaming the victim” be extended to burglaries. Once again, the gun-grabbing fear mongers in charge of our state are looking to set a precedent that will no doubt have national implications. If this case goes to trial and Stanley Sokolowski is convicted, there will now be case law on the books that other judges can cite: The common act of reloading your own ammunition and the possession of the needed (and Constitutionally protected) supplies will be akin to domestic terrorism. The following email was sent to us by our good friend, and former...

    Whites are abandoning Massachusetts cities at a rapid clip, continuing well-worn paths to the suburbs or out of state, according to new demographic data from the US census. ...The migration of whites out of communities has also left many public school districts in cities made up overwhelmingly of minority students. In Lawrence, just 6 percent of this year’s public school students are white. In Chelsea just 8 percent are, according to state Department of Education figures. ...The trend was strongest in lower-income communities plagued by violent crime and struggling schools. Yet wealthier communities like Beverly, Gloucester, Melrose, and Salem also...
