    Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 21, 2107 | Elizabeth Harrington
    A leading researcher on a ridiculed taxpayer-funded study of duck penises is now using her expertise on orca whales and is going to the "March for Science" to protest budget cuts. Patricia Brennan, a visiting lecturer at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, worked on the duck penis study that received $384,949 from the National Science Foundation, a grant that was funded through the 2009 stimulus package. The study looked at the differences in the corkscrew-shaped penises of ducks.

    The New York Times spread a pair of misleading photos of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots visiting the Trump and Obama White Houses, giving the false impression that significantly fewer Patriots players and staffers showed up for President Trump. The tweet quickly went viral, picking up over 44,000 retweets.

The 2015 photo included about 40 staff members, who were...

    When you receiving a devastating fact-check by the Twitter account of an NFL football team, it might be time to delete your newspaper. That very thing occurred on Wednesday, when the New York Times tweeted out two photos comparing the number of Patriots coaches and players who attended in 2015, when Obama was president, versus how many attended on Wednesday with President Trump: "Patriots’ turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots’ turnout for President Trump today: https://t.co/OxMEOqZonI pic.twitter.com/pLmJWhOw1j" — NYT Sports (@NYTSports) April 19, 2017 Clearly, the tweet makes the Obama White House visit look significantly better attended than...
  • New England Patriots Call Out New York Times For Lying To People On Twitter

    Blue Lives Matter ^ | ON APRIL 20, 2017
    The New England Patriots have called out the New York Times for lying to people in multiple tweets about the NFL team meeting with President Trump. On Thursday, New York Times tweeted out two photos. One photo showed the Patriots with President Obama at the White House in 2015. The second photo showed a picture of the Patriots with President Trump in 2017, showing fewer people standing with the President Trump than Obama. The only reason to tweet such a comparison photo would be to ridicule President Trump. However, the New England Patriots official Twitter account responded to the photo...

    President Trump on Thursday said he plans to nominate former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as ambassador to New Zealand. "If confirmed, Scott Brown of Massachusetts will serve as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to New Zealand," the White House said in a release. "Mr. Brown is a lawyer and former United States Senator. Mr. Brown served in the Massachusetts Army National Guard before receiving his law degree from Boston College Law School. He then went on to serve in the Massachusetts legislature for over a decade before winning the special election for Ted Kennedy's U.S....

    The New England Patriots are the professional sports team most closely associated with President Donald Trump, so it was fitting that they were the first championship team to visit Trump in the White House. Many of them visited on Wednesday, anyway. Many others skipped the trip. Perhaps the most awkward moment of a fairly routine speech by a president to a winning team – including owner Robert Kraft presenting Trump with a No. 45 Patriots jersey and coach Bill Belichick giving him a helmet – came when Trump mentioned receiver Danny Amendola for his fourth-down catch in Super Bowl LI. Amendola was...

    Rob Gronkowski – White House press secretary? That unlikely scenario nearly played out (sort of) during Wednesday’s White House press briefing when the New England Patriots star tight end made a cameo appearance offering aid to (the real) Press Secretary Sean Spicer. “Sean, need any help?” a mischievous-looking Gronkowski asked after emerging from a door behind the podium.

    The line may seem familiar. It was a popular catch-phrase of a woman so-called “progressives” have loved to mock and reveled in ridiculing since her explosion onto the national political scene in 2008: former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but when Governor Palin learned of Warren cribbing her line, she told Breitbart News, “I don’t know. Coming from liberals who urge women to claim victimization, ‘Fight like a girl’ just doesn’t sound the same as when legit fighters for equality say it, mean it, live it, and will never give it up.” Warren...

    Reid laughed, saying that was a "goody two-shoes" answer. To his point, the word aired on "CBS Sunday Morning" without being censored. "No, it's not!" Warren said. "Are you kidding? Have you ever seen a woman like me look you straight in the face after you've finished some long explanation of something and then just said poop?" Warren added she hasn't said the word yet on the Senate floor, but the day could be coming.

    A student at a private Muslim school in Queens, New York called the Boston Marathon bombers Jews, a former teacher says. The New York Post reported Sunday that Nina Kossman, a former English teacher at the Razi School in Woodside, asked her students at one time: “Do you know what happens when people start hating each other for their differences?” One student replied, “My parents said they [the Boston bombers] were bad people. They were Jews.” […] “I was shocked,” said Koss­man. Kossman was removed from the private religious school last month after she told students the Adam and Eve...

    "I say hello to Mitch every chance I get, and he turns his head." Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has apparently been ignoring Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) since moving to silence her on the Senate floor in February, Warren told The Boston Globe. McConnell cut Warren off in February as she tried to read a letter from Coretta Scott King during a speech on the Senate floor, explaining her opposition to Jeff Session’s nomination to be attorney general. McConnell invoked a little-used rule that blocks senators "by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators...

    A former Cape and Islands state senator on Tuesday called for a movement to purge “as many guns out of society as possible,” and pushed for a sweeping overhaul of gun laws. “The first thing to do is stop manufacturing and selling them, and the second thing to do is have a very lucrative buyback-and-confiscation program,” Dan Wolf, a Harwich-based Democrat who served three terms with the Massachusetts Legislature, said at a Grandmothers Against Gun Violence meeting. Wolf, the CEO of the independent regional airline Cape Air and a past gubernatorial candidate, was invited by the nonprofit organization to speak...

    Hey parents, look at what your annual $63,916 tuition check is paying for! An editorial from Wellesley College’s student newspaper put out a call to arms on Wednesday against anyone who engages in alleged “racist” behavior. Ironically enough, the piece starts out responding to what the author sees as unfair allegations that Wellesley students and professors foster “an environment where free speech is not allowed or is a violated right. Many outside sources have painted us as a bunch of hot house flowers who cannot exist in the real world.”

Gomez, who works in private equity and was previously a naval aviator before becoming a SEAL, said that if Republicans can develop the right strategy, then there is a "path to victory" against Warren, the Cohasset Mariner reported.

    Two minority student groups at Harvard have been forced to apologize after they put up fake deportation warnings in dorm rooms to frighten students. Notices from the fake 'Harvard Special Investigations Unit' were put up this week warning that one of their fellow students had been detained indefinitely. 'We regret to inform you that a resident of this dorm has been detained indefinitely due to suspicious actions, suspected violent inclinations, or suspicion of being a deportable alien (i.e. questionable residency status),' the flyers read.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has raked in over $5 million dollars in the first quarter of 2017 while gearing up for re-election in 2018. Warren's campaign account has increased from $4.8 million to more than $9.2 million, after receiving over $5.2 million in campaign funds this year, according to CNS News. In comparison, Warren only received $1 million in the 4th quarter of 2016. A major contributor to the funds was MoveOn.org, a liberal organization that raised over $250,000 for Warren. In addition, the senator herself started selling T-shirts bearing the slogan, "Nevertheless, She Persisted."
