  • Environmental law aims to prepare state for climate change

    QUINCY, Mass. - Gov. Charlie Baker says a new environmental infrastructure law will help make Massachusetts more resilient to climate change. The bill ceremonially signed by the governor in Quincy on Tuesday authorizes the state to borrow up to $2.4 billion for environmental projects in the coming years. About $500 million is earmarked specifically for helping communities prepare for extreme weather events that many scientists believe will become more frequent with global warming. Baker, a Republican seeking a second term in November, says Massachusetts is a "national leader" in addressing the challenges posed by climate changes.

    Several weeks ago, an article in the Hebrew-language Yediot Achronot revealed that, according to Palestinian sources, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have received more than $100 million per year over the last few years from Iran. That represents a substantial fraction of the cash that President Barack Obama put on pallets and flew to Tehran shortly before he left office. Today it was announced that two Iranians had been indicted for spying in the United States for the Iranian government. What were they looking at? Missile bases? Nuclear reactors? Grand Central Station? No. They were indicted for taking pictures of “Israeli...

  • MS-13, Violent and Unruly, Is Trying to Organize—Can It?

    Wall Street Journal ^ | August 19, 2018 | Del Quentin Wilber
    ... For years, MS-13’s impact on the U.S. was local—confined to specific neighborhoods and cities scattered across the country as the gang used violence to secure and hold turf. Then, federal officials tracked an alarming development. As MS-13’s influence grew, so did its ambition to leverage its network of local franchises into a cohesive, national brand. That would vault MS-13 into territory once occupied by the Mafia, and now held by Mexican drug cartels. A series of trials that wrapped up this summer in Boston shows how MS-13 is pushing to make that leap by streamlining its management structure and...
  • Elizabeth Warren’s Batty Plan to Nationalize . . . Everything

    National Review ^ | August 16, 2018 | Kevin D. Williamson
    Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has one-upped socialists Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: She proposes to nationalize every major business in the United States of America. If successful, it would constitute the largest seizure of private property in human history. Warren’s proposal is dishonestly called the “Accountable Capitalism Act.” Accountable to whom? you might ask. That’s a reasonable question. The answer is — as it always is — accountable to politicians, who desire to put the assets and productivity of private businesses under political discipline for their own selfish ends. It is remarkable that people who are most keenly attuned...

    Just one link in chain of corruption out of Boston FBI office. Disgraced, fired FBI agent Peter Strzok worked in the Boston office of the Famous But Incompetent agency. Why am I not surprised? The most corrupt G-man in American history getting his start in the most corrupt outpost of the squalid agency — it makes perfect sense. .... Yesterday I called the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, the former U.S. attorney for Boston, who knew all of the six or seven FBI agents who were accused in federal court of taking payoffs from gangsters. Some of them were...

    -- Security is tighter Thursday afternoon at The Boston Globe headquarters. Police are stationed around the building for the rest of the day. Building management at 53 State Street sent a memo to all tenants -- saying The Globe had received several threats. The Boston Globe spear-headed an effort by more than 300 newspapers today, publishing editorials against president trump's attacks on the press. President Donald Trump tweeted that The Globe is in collusion with other papers on the issue of free press.

    Joseph Curtatone, the mayor of Somerville, Mass., said Sunday that he will never drink Sam Adams beer again after the cofounder of the Boston brewery thanked President Trump for a corporate tax cut. “I will never drink Sam Adam's beer again!” the Massachusetts Democrat said on Twitter. Curtatone linked to an article published by the Boston Business Journal that detailed a dinner where Jim Koch, who co-founded Boston Beer, thanked the president for the GOP-authored tax cut that he said would help his company compete against foreign brewers. In another tweet posted on Sunday evening, Curtatone made a direct message...

It was photoshopped onto his hat after he went to a Trump rally. It was all over the internet. There were other comments by other student body supporting this and encouraging this.

    DUDLEY — Police chiefs in Massachusetts have responded angrily to a remark by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren that the American criminal justice system is “racist ... front to back.” Ms. Warren, a potential Democratic presidential candidate, was speaking before an audience at historically black Dillard University in New Orleans Aug. 3 when she delivered what she called “the hard truth about our criminal justice system: It’s racist ... I mean, front to back.” Ms. Warren cited disproportionate arrests of African-Americans for petty drug possession; an overloaded public defender; and state laws that keep convicted felons from voting even after their...
  • Beauty queen Maude Gorman, who gave up crown over #MeToo skit, caught cheating in ultramarathon

    Maude Gorman, the Massachusetts beauty queen who gave up her crown over what she called an insensitive #MeToo movement skit, had her finishes in ultramarathon races vacated after race officials caught her cheating. Earlier this year, Gorman turned in her Miss Plymouth County crown after she said a skit at the Miss Massachusetts Organization's pageant in Worcester mocked the #MeToo movement. Her decision gained attention from media across the country. Gorman, a Hingham resident, posted several pictures of her training on social media, and has placed high in ultramarathons. As reported by the blog Turtleboysports, Gorman has been disqualified as...

    US Senator Elizabeth Warren is facing tough criticism from local police chiefs over her recent remarks about racism and the criminal justice system, exposing her to new attacks from rivals as she runs for re-election amid buzz that she could be a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. While speaking Aug. 3 at Dillard University, a historically black college in New Orleans, Warren said the criminal justice system is “racist. . . front to back.” The remarks drew a rebuke from Yarmouth Police Chief Frank G. Frederickson, who wrote Friday on the department’s Facebook page that her comments were an “insult.”...

    A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

    A Massachusetts bill that recommended teaching children as young as 12 about oral and anal sex failed in the state House last week amid growing public outrage. The College Fix reports state Senate Bill 2128 passed the state Senate but died in the House last week when the legislative session ended. The bill seemed harmless enough at first. It would have required public schools to provide “comprehensive” sex education that is medically accurate and age-appropriate. This included “the benefits of abstinence and delaying sexual activity” and “the effective use of contraceptives and barrier methods.” However, Andrew Beckwith, president of the...

I have been in contact with officials from all of these races. The evidence was clear, and their actions were decisive. I received an email on Thursday morning from the race’s timer,...
