    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...

    You could call this latest “coordinated” hit on big, bad President Donald Trump ‘The Dog Day of the American Newspaper Industry’ D-Day for the 340-something newspapers who took up the Boston Globe’s lead to publish anti-Trump editorials on their largely ignored-by-the-public editorial pages, and only Rex Huppke’s dog over at the Chicago Tribune is getting to lap up any attention. The progressive-left’s running dog media hoped to gain public trust by coordinating against the president they live to hate in a single day, but their efforts went over like the proverbial lead balloon.

    BOSTON (WCVB/CNN) - A neighbor of the Samuel Adams brewery in Boston has hung up a sign aimed at shaming the brewery's founder for his remarks at a dinner with President Donald Trump. The sign says “Shame!” and “Sam Adams (heart) Trump.” It’s a response to Jim Koch, the founder of Sam Adams producer Boston Beer Company, endorsing Trump’s tax cuts. The sign is visible from the brewery parking lot. The person who hung it said he wants an apology from Sam Adams' CEO himself. "It's only been up a couple of days,” said Jeremy Phillips, who created the sign....

    Is Boston racist? Plenty of signs point to yes. The city has been called out many times for being home to a number of racist acts, from a Fenway crowd member calling Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones the N-word last summer to comedian Michael Che saying Boston is “the most racist city” he has ever been to. Now, another spotlight is shining on racism in Boston after a Twitter user shared her experience and received a flood of responses telling similar stories.

    Activists are planning to boycott Boston's Faneuil Hall after their calls for a name change to the historic site, which is named after a slave owner, have went unanswered. The hall has served as a home for civic rhetoric from the time colonists congregated to talk about freedom from the British.

    WCVB ^ | Aug 16, 2017
    There is a new push to change the name of a Boston landmark due to its ties to slavery. At a press conference with Boston religious leaders Wednesday, Kevin Peterson, of the New Democracy Coalition, said Faneuil Hall should be renamed. Peterson said Peter Faneuil shouldn’t be memorialized on one of Boston’s historic sites because he was a slave owner and trader. Faneuil was a wealthy man who donated the building to the city of Boston right before his death in 1743. The building took two years to construct and was named for Faneuil after his death. Peterson suggested the...

    A group pushing to change the name of iconic marketplace Faneuil Hall is now calling for a national “black-led boycott” of the tourist site after being “avoided and rebuffed” by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, according to its founder. Kevin Peterson said the New Democracy Coalition has been reaching out to the mayor for more than a year and a half about a name change through letters, press conferences and office visits.

    A federal judge in Boston is allowing a lawsuit against the Trump administration’s ending of temporary protections for immigrants to proceed on the grounds the decisions were motivated by racial prejudice. U.S. District Judge Denise Casper rejected Monday the government’s bid to dismiss the lawsuit, which a group of immigrants and civil rights organizations filed in February in response to the cancellation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti and El Salvador. Statements by administration officials — including President Donald Trump — make it plausible that “a discriminatory purpose was a motivating factor in a decision” to wind down TPS...

    What a fine-tuned machine our state is when it comes to clamping down on its own residents, as witnessed Thursday when Boston’s Licensing Board took a shot across the bow of a local small business owner. Naveen Kapoor, owner of the Quality Market in Brighton, was caught on camera moving beer from that store down the street to his other shop, Quality Liquors in Allston. He told the Licensing Board that he was transferring the suds because Quality Liquors had run out of several beer brands. That is a big no-no. According to the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, “All licensed...
  • Drug-dealing dean shot student for not selling enough weed

    BOSTON — A former high school dean known as an anti-violence advocate was convicted Thursday of shooting and nearly killing a student he had recruited to sell marijuana for him. Shaun Harrison, 58, was found guilty of all charges, including armed assault with intent to murder, by a Suffolk Superior Court jury in its second day of deliberations. “Shaun Harrison was really a fraud, he was living a lie, and it was clearly exposed in this case,” District Attorney Dan Conley said. “Not only was he not a man of God or a role model for young people, he manipulated...

    Clinton on Friday for her “transformative impact on society.” That’s not a misprint. The prestigious Ivy League university is giving the woman who ran for president and lost, twice, an award for transforming society. Harvard said it picked Clinton because of her advocacy for human rights, her work as a legislator, and her leadership around the world on behalf of America. If “transformative impact” and Hillary Clinton in the same sentence has you shaking your head, you’re not alone. She not only lost the presidency twice, she has wasted the last year and a half going on tour around the...

    Donald Trump was wanted by two pro Baseball teams. Not only does Trump know how to play hardball in the business world and as president of the United States, but it turns out he could play with the best of them in the baseball world. President Donald Trump was heavily scouted and wanted by two pro teams when coming out of his high school military prep academy to be a pro prospect. The Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies were keen to sign up the first basemen from NY Military Academy before he went off to college at Fordham...

    dated Mar 29, 2015 BOSTON – The FBI has positively identified the two robbers who in 1990 committed the largest art heist in history, stealing over $500 million worth of masterpieces from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum here. One of them is a local ex-con who was free only because his lawyer, now Secretary of State John Kerry, was able to get his first-degree murder conviction overturned in 1982. “We got justice,” Kerry told a reporter in 2009 of his work for the notorious hoodlum, “and I’ll go to my grave proud that we did.” Multiple law-enforcement sources here have...

The Berkshire Eagle runs down the details of Ciccolo’s case: Ciccolo was arrested July 4, 2015, after he allegedly accepted a small cache of weapons from an FBI informant.

    John Kerry has colluded with the Iranian regime to preserve the Iran deal from its prospective undoing by the president of the United States. Matt Viser calls it “shadow diplomacy” in his Boston Globe article breaking the story. Isn’t this the kind of thing for which then Acting Attorney Sally Yates sicced the FBI on Michael Flynn? Because it allegedly violated the Logan Act? Why, yes, it is. (I requested a comment from Yates this morning via email.) Yates won’t be talking to me, I’m pretty sure, but we can to turn to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on...

    Alan Dershowitz and Richard Painter Get in Tense Clash: Mueller May Be a Good American But ‘You’re Not’An MSNBC debate between Alan Dershowitz and Senate candidate Richard Painter got tense and personal as they clashed over Robert Mueller. Painter praised Mueller as a “highly professional prosecutor” with a great record and said it’s a “tragedy” that the country now has to endure all of this. Dershowitz said the White House’s behavior may be a “tragedy” too, but so is Mueller’s office, and he described the special counsel as someone with a “mixed reputation” in Boston from before he headed the...
