    Where do I go to get my reputation back? Do you know how many times I've been called a "racist" over the last six years for calling Elizabeth Warren exactly what she just called herself in Baltimore - "not a person of color." In other words, a fake Indian. She finally admitted the obvious on a Friday afternoon, just before Christmas, in front of what she must have assumed would be a somewhat sympathetic audience at a black college. Two months after offering what she claimed was definitive proof of her Native American ancestry, she is now acknowledging that she’s...

    Boston, MA – When Suffolk County’s district attorney-elect Rachel Rollins takes over the prosecutor’s office in January, criminals will no longer need to worry about being held accountable for many offenses – including resisting arrest. “It’s a recipe for disaster,” veteran Boston defense attorney, Robert Griffin, told the Boston Globe. “The problem is the message that you’re sending,” Griffin stressed. “You’re encouraging bad behavior. You’re telling people that we’re not going to do anything about this.” Rollins, 47, has been widely hailed – and widely criticized – for her well-publicized “Charges to be Declined” list, which she has featured on...
  • Elizabeth Warren's hometown paper 'skeptical' of 2020 run: She 'missed her moment in 2016'

    (CNN) The Boston Globe published a searing editorial Thursday pouring cold water on the prospects of a presidential run for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2020, a stark contrast to the paper's call for her to seek the White House three years ago. "While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure," the Globe editorial reads. "A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump." The Globe, based in the state Warren represents, writes: "Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason...

    POMONA, Calif. — Prosecutors say former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner has been sentenced to eight years in prison for trying to kill his ex-girlfriend after breaking into her Southern California home. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says Browner was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to attempted murder as part of a deal with prosecutors. The 34-year-old also pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child. The judge ordered Browner to stay away from the victim and her two children for 10 years. Browner, who won Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England...

    BOSTON – A Massachusetts teen facing charges in the killing of a 17-year-old boy had been allowed to remain in the country despite being identified by police as an active member of MS-13, recently filed federal court documents show. Homeland Security officials told an immigration judge this summer 19-year-old Henri Salvador Gutierrez should be deported to his native El Salvador because he was a "verified and active member" of MS-13 with multiple weapons-related arrests, prosecutors said in a filing last week. But the judge deemed the information against Gutierrez inconclusive and ordered him released on June 30, just weeks before...

    WASHINGTON - Two police departments in the northeastern United States decided over the past week to cancel their participation in a program that involves visiting Israel and meeting Israeli police officers, due to public pressure by a coalition of progressive organisations, including a number of groups affiliated with the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment movement (BDS).

    Police Commissioner William G. Gross doubled down yesterday on his fiery criticism of an ACLU lawsuit over the city’s gang database, saying through a spokesman that safety of neighborhood residents remains his “top priority.” “Commissioner Gross is passionate about protecting the residents of Boston, and that will always be his first and foremost objective,” said department spokesman Sgt. Detective John Boyle. Gross slammed the ACLU in a private Facebook post Saturday, saying the “paper warriors” — by targeting BPD’s anti-gang measures with a lawsuit — are ignoring the “atrocities” by the ruthless MS-13 gang. Many of those gang members are...

    The Boston Celtics' early season struggles continued on Wednesday night with a 117-109 loss to the New York Knicks. Down by as much as 26, the Celtics made a big comeback in the fourth quarter, but fell short, largely due to some clutch shooting by Trey Burke. Now just 9-9 on the season, there will be plenty to discuss in regards to the Celtics' inability to meet expectations. At the same time, there will also be plenty of discussion about one of Kyrie Irving's postgame quotes, in which he made it clear he doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving. MassLive's Tom Westerholm was...

    Her winning platform included a push for criminal justice reform, and a controversial policy of no longer prosecuting people for lower-level non-violent crimes, like dealing small amounts of drugs, shoplifting, or standalone resisting arrest charges. Instead, she has vowed to focus on resolving those issues via alternatives to jail, like community service or restitution. “This is the time for us to claim our power and make good on our promises to make true criminal justice reform for the people in Suffolk County,” Rollins said at the time. “Reform that is progressive – that decriminalizes poverty, substance use disorder, and mental...

    Chick-fil-A’s entrance in the Boston market comes six years after the late Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said he would oppose the chain from opening within city limits after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy voiced his opposition to gay marriage in 2012. The bad press never impacted sales at the chain, which has seen its market share grow 13% in the last four years.

    Boston's euphoric street party celebrating the city's fourth World Series title in 15 years has claimed at least one casualty. Security was heavy for Wednesday's duck boat parade carrying the victorious Red Sox through downtown. There were few problems, but one fan reportedly tossed a full can of beer at one of the boats, and it struck and slightly damaged a World Series trophy. Boston police said they arrested a Massachusetts teen on Boylston Street after they saw him throw an unopened can of beer at one of the duck boats, striking an adult male party on board. Patrick Connolly,...

    Just when we thought we’d seen it all, a Boston Archdiocesan parish led by a “gay-friendly’ pastor has done something worse than we could have imagined. The “gay-friendly” pastor at St. Ignatius of Loyola in Chestnut Hill — welcomed by Cardinal O’Malley to the parish in 2016 despite his published history of leading a “gay-friendly” parish in New York City — has a full-page propaganda letter in their parish bulletin touting the parish administrator’s story as a transgender person and urging parishioners to vote “Yes” on the upcoming “Bathroom Bill” ballot question. A “Yes” means the existing law stands that...

    Curt Schilling is a central player in the story of the 2004 Boston Red Sox. His bloody sock game in Game 6 of the American League Championship series that saw the Red Sox rally from a 3-0 deficit against the New York Yankees en route to their first World Series title in 86 years is the stuff of baseball lore. Schilling is also a pariah in large circles. The former Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks and Red Sox great has chosen to spend his retirement years espousing radical, sometimes racist political opinions.
