    The Hill ^ | April 17, 2017 | Jordain Carney
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is urging Democrats to focus on combatting the Trump agenda, lamenting he's been in the White House for less than 100 days. Warren declined to speculate if she could have won the party's nomination in 2016 or if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would have faired better against Trump than Hillary Clinton, telling USA Today, "We are where we are." "Donald Trump has only been here, not even 100 days yet — God, it's like dog years or something, it feels like so much has gone on. We've got to get focused on what we're going to...

    WBUR-FM ^ | April 12, 2017 | Anthony Brooks
    Despite setbacks on his effort to repeal and replace Obamacare and court challenges to his executive orders on immigration, President Trump remains very popular among his supporters in Massachusetts. That's according to a new WBUR poll (topline results | crosstabs) of voters in towns across the central part of the state that voted for Trump in November. In Townsend, voters chose Trump over Hillary Clinton 50 to 41 percent. It's one of about 50 towns in the central part of the state that went for Trump. And they are the focus of the WBUR poll.

  • Ayyadurai is no Ordinary Senate Candidate

    04/10/2017 9:22:06 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 16 replies
    Shiva Ayyadurai is an entrepreneur, MIT graduate, Donald Trump-supporting Indian-born immigrant and U.S. citizen hoping that his outsider status will carry him to the U.S. Senate. A Republican, Ayyadurai declared on social media several weeks ago that he intends to challenge for Sen. Elizabeth Warren's seat in the 2018 election. He filed official paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on March 17. Warren, a Democrat, is a former Harvard Law School professor who defeated incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown in the 2012 election. In a Monday meeting with editors of The Sun, Ayyadurai portrayed himself as a "21st-century senator" with...
  • Juncker's Brexit revenge should start in Somerville

    Someone should get European Union boss Jean-Claude Juncker a map. If Juncker is serious about breaking up the United States and turning it into a look-alike Europe, he'd be wise to start in historic places like Massachusetts rather than in Ohio and Texas. He'd be much better off launching his separatist revolution in Somerville, the key municipality in the Bermuda Triangle of sanctuary cities, which includes Boston and Cambridge. These cities know something about rebellion and separation, especially from England

    Massachusetts State Rep. Michelle DuBois posted a warning on her Facebook page yesterday saying that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents would be conducting a raid in the city of Brockton, MA. DuBois claimed the warning came to her from a “friend in the Latin community.” The warning stated, “I have a message for the immigrant community of Brockton. Please be careful on Wednesday 29. ICE will be in Brockton on that day.” It continued, “If you are undocumented don’t go out on the street. If there is a knock on the door of your house and you don’t know...

    BOSTON (CBS) – Former gubernatorial candidate Christy Mihos has died. According to the Cape Cod Times, Mihos had cancer and passed away in hospice care in Florida on Saturday. He made a fortune with a chain of convenience stores and also ran unsuccessfully for governor twice. Mihos served on the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority when the Big Dig was under construction and correctly predicted it would go billions over budget. He also had a very public and messy divorce with his wife in 2012. Christy Mihos was 67 years old.
  • Deadly fungal infection that doctors have been fearing now reported in U.S.

    The fungus, a strain of a kind of yeast known as Candida auris, has been reported in a dozen countries on five continents starting in 2009, where it was first found in an ear infection in a patient in Japan. Since then, the fungus has been reported in Colombia, India, Israel, Kenya, Kuwait, Pakistan, South Korea, Venezuela and the United Kingdom. Unlike garden variety yeast infections, this one causes serious bloodstream infections, spreads easily from person to person in health-care settings, and survives for months on skin and for weeks on bed rails, chairs and other hospital equipment. Some strains...

    Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is useless, teetering close to the ragged edge of pointless. Apart from starring roles in childish protests and tough-guy Twitter rants, Warren is making no difference in Washington, D.C., and is no friend to her constituents in Massachusetts. She spent the primary election virtually huddled under her desk while progressives implored her to help send their once-in-a-lifetime socialist dream, Bernie Sanders, to the White House.

    Governor Charlie Baker is pledging to boost state funding for Planned Parenthood clinics in Massachusetts if his fellow Republicans in Washington push ahead with a plan to slash the flow of federal dollars to the organization. Massachusetts’ five Planned Parenthood clinics stand to lose a total of about $2 million a year, from a budget of $21.5 million, if the federal cuts take place.

    The group Not My President’s Day announced a rally scheduled for Monday in Boston had to be canceled, according to a statement Thursday. The rally would have been in the Boston Common from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. EST. The group announced it was not granted a permit, but it’s also worth noting that only 173 of the 1,200 individuals invited to the event said they planned on attending. “We were unable to get a permit in time for the rally, so officially, we’re not hosting an event in Boston. However, we do have one planned in NYC!” The official...

    BOSTON (CBS) – An immigrant worker at Logan Airport says his dream of becoming a U.S. citizen was stolen. In January he received a notice in the mail inviting him to a naturalization ceremony. He brought his mother. “This was like the end of it all. I was really proud. It was at the JFK library,” the employee said. The man spoke to WBZ-TV on the condition of anonymity because of what happened next. “They check this list and realize my name is not on there and they’re like, ‘You’re going to have to leave. Somebody’s going to have to...

  • The Height of Hypocrisy – Newton, MA Protecting the Illegal Aliens It Hopes Never Move There

    The City Council of Newton, Massachusetts is considering a sanctuary city ordinance this month. Newton’s city paper The Heights characterized the move as a protest against the election of President Donald Trump and said, “Through these proclamations, the cities cement their commitment to protecting their undocumented immigrant populations, promising that immigrants in violation of federal immigration laws will not only avoid prosecution in the city, but also have continued access to city amenities regardless of their status.” That may sound very generous, but it’s actually the height of hypocrisy. Newton has virtually no illegal alien population. It is a bedroom...

    Former baseball star Curt Schilling is reportedly planning to run for Senate in Massachusetts against incumbent Elizabeth Warren, and he’s wasting no time attacking his would-be opponent. Warren, a favorite politician among the liberal activists, represents “everything we hate about politics,” the former Red Sox pitcher said during an radio interview on the Larry O’Connor show. Schilling thinks he could be successful against Warren because of the “disconnect” between the politics of average voters in Massachusetts and the senator’s left-wing beliefs. “As I talk about potentially running for Senate and running against ‘Lieawatha,’ I’ve talked about the fact that the...

    Liberal icon Elizabeth Warren has emerged as the scourge of the Trump administration, grilling the president’s Cabinet nominees at every chance and coming out against Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch within minutes of his nomination. The moves are what one might expect from a presidential aspirant. But Warren, who is placed in the top tier of likely Democratic 2020 candidates in very-early polls, first has to keep her Massachusetts Senate seat. It’s not a sure thing. According to WBUR poll, just 44 percent of state voters think she deserves re-election, while a plurality – 46 percent – believes she doesn’t...

    This week, Sen. Warren, who recently pressed Department of Health and Human Services nominee Tom Price about what she considers possible financial improprieties, is under fire regarding a $1.3 million line of credit from the Bank of America on her Cambridge home. For two years in a row, the sanctimonious Warren failed to list it on the financial disclosure form all senators complete each year.WarrenÂ’s staff claims that she is not required by law to report it. This may well be true. A loophole seems to permit her non-disclosure But WarrenÂ’s reliance on the loophole strikes a discordant note, given...

    NORTHBRIDGE (CBS) — As President Donald Trump signed an executive order to jump-start construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, some businesses in New England have their sights set on getting in on the project. In a renovated Northbridge mill building are miles of steel and wire that Riverdale Mills believes can fill the promise. The company already has experience. In 2008 it provided the materials for 23 miles of fencing on the southern border in Arizona and says it has the capacity to cover 2,000 more miles. Its wire mesh wall would be 20 feet high and five...
