    The New England Alliance for Liberty and Free Markets on the election of Donald Trump and the take over by the GOP of the house and senate We congratulate Donald J Trump for a successful campaign and wish him the best. We also congratulate the GOP for taking hold over the congress and senate. This election didn't quite pan out as we had hope though. Many of us I am aware were not totally in support of Trump which given his demeanor and his past history of liberal thought including support for abortion, gun control and eminent domain is understandable,...

    For families using natural gas in their homes, this could be an expensive winter... or a cold one without heat. New England consumes the most liquid natural gas (LNGs) out of anywhere in North America primarily due to high population density and colder climate. Historically, the price of LNG rises in correlation to snow storms. Because of bottlenecks in the pipelines for LNG, supply is limited in the North East and a demand surge can cause a spike in price. In 2015, there were only 6 million homes that use traditional heating oil in New England, whereas nearly half of...

    Fishermen in New England say President Barack Obama needlessly dealt a big blow to their industry when he created the Atlantic Ocean’s first marine national monument and circumvented the existing process for protecting fisheries. The new Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument consists of nearly 5,000 square miles of underwater canyons and mountains off the New England coast. The designation will close the area to commercial fishermen, who go there primarily for lobster, red crab, squid, whiting, butterfish, swordfish and tuna. After Thursday’s announcement, fishermen pondered their next move: sue, lobby Congress to change the plan or relocate. It’s...

    The State Department is hosting a two-day conference on the world's oceans, beginning today, and it's expected to produce a raft of announcements and initiatives, including new marine protected areas -- one off the coast of New England -- as well as a ban on single-use plastic bags. Ahead of the conference, press reports said President Obama on Thursday will establish the first national marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean to permanently protect nearly 5,000 square miles of underwater canyons and mountains off the coast of New England. The White House said the designation will lead to a ban on...

    Anti-Semitic incidents in New England are up more than 100% this year, according to numbers released this week by the Anti-Defamation League. In 2015, an average of five such incidents occurred each month, while so far this year, there have been over 10 each month. The increase is “fueled by vandalism, harassment, and other acts at schools and colleges,” reports the Boston Globe. “Clearly, people are acting out on some long-held stereotypes and hatred toward Jews,” said Robert Trestan, director of the New England Regional Office of the ADL, “and it’s designed to send a message of intimidation. We’re increasingly...

    Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Saturday ordered authorities to seize factories that have stopped production and jail their owners, a day after declaring a state of emergency to combat the country's economic crisis. "We must take all measures to recover productive capacity, which is being paralyzed by the bourgeoisie," he told a rally in Caracas. "Anyone who wants to halt (production) to sabotage the country should get out, and those who do must be handcuffed and sent to the PGV (Venezuelan General Penitentiary)," he said.

    From the investigator touting as truth the opposite of the testimony of the AFC Championship Game referee on the matter most salient to Deflategate to the league admitting ignorance of the Ideal Gas Law to Roger Goodell hearing the appeal on the fairness of the suspension Roger Goodell handed down, the NFL gives its fans myriad reasons to doubt its investigation into Tom Brady.

    Tom Brady is suspended (again) for his role in Deflategate, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's guilty of what he's been accused of doing. What it means is that the Roger Goodell believes Brady is guilty and deserves a four-game suspension, and the judges who reinstated that suspension believe Goodell has the proper authority to do so. At least one player doesn't agree with that assessment. According to Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who spoke with Sports Illustrated's Maggie Gray, Goodell has too much power and the league shouldn't be trusted.

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game "Deflategate" suspension imposed by the NFL, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union. A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled 2-to-1 that Commissioner Roger Goodell did not deprive Brady of "fundamental fairness" with his procedural rulings. The split decision may end the legal debate over the scandal that led to months of football fans arguing over air pressure and the reputation of one of the league's top teams.

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension is — for now — back on, per Reuters. The Second Circuit court has ruled in favor of the NFL, ordering the district court and The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit overturned last year’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman to to enforce that Brady miss the first quarter of the 2016 season. NFL commissioner still holds the right to rescind the four-game punishment and declined to say last week if he'd enforce Brady’s suspension this season if the appeal was won, as it was. A fine...

    DENVER — What a game. The best game of the NFL season to this point ended with C.J. Anderson running all alone down the left sideline, raising a hand to celebrate as he ran through the snow to give the Denver Broncos an amazing 30-24 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday night. Anderson got past the line, got through safety Duron Harmon's tackle attempt on a third-down run, and took it 48 yards to the end zone for a dramatic comeback victory that ended the Patriots' chances at a perfect season. The big story of the game from...

    FOXBORO -- We know Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reveres Bill Belichick, and on Wednesday he put his head coach next to God. Kind of. With Pope Francis stateside, Brady was asked about the Holy Father and laughed when posed the question, "You rank Bill or the Pope higher?" "In Bill we trust! You kidding me?" Brady answered.
