  • Is This the Worst Judge in America?

    John Adams must be rolling over in his grave. The great founding father from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts once said, “We are a government of laws, not of men.” Today, it seems that some of his Bay State successors have all but forgotten Adams’ words. Perhaps most neglectful of the rule of law is Superior Court Judge Timothy Feeley. His latest legal rulings have been so egregious that Massachusetts state legislators and hundreds of concerned citizens are calling for his impeachment. The Commonwealth’s Gov. Charlie Baker even weighed in on the subject. Judge Feeley’s wisdom, or lack thereof, in recent...

    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 Ill go to my grave proud that we did. Multiple law-enforcement sources here have...

    If, as expected, Mitt Romney wins his race for a Senate seat from Utah he may become the most powerful man in the United States Senate. As many of us remember, Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts, ran for president in 2012 and lost to Barack Obama. It wasnt one of those totally humiliating lossesthe map did not turn bluebut we assumed Mitt Romney would fade into history. Well, maybe not. The seat will remain Republican-held for President Trump come January of 2019, but this one could very well turn out to be the swing vote in the Senate. If Democrats...

    I'm trying to remember a failed presidential candidate before now who made a second career out of whining about losing an election. Sure, Al Gore cried into his Hostess snack cakes for a while after his devastating loss, but then he found much greater success by appointing himself President of the Environment. John Kerry managed to weasel his way into an office for which he was even less suited than his predecessor. John McCain went back to the Senate. And Mitt Romney has had to settle for being incredibly rich and absolutely right about everything he said during the 2012...

    American politics has become almost all accusatory and all bombastic, the former secretary of state told those gathered Sunday, arguing we are at the point where we cant even agree on what the facts are. Oh the irony. Honestly, I think they are baiting Trump to do something about the increasing belligerence that Trumps being shown. It's psyops stuff meant to be demoralizing. They think they might goad him into arresting them or some other shtf decision. But there are other ways. There's alway the "leave the gun, take the cannoli" solution. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=yHzh0PvMWTI

    Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday warned that true civil discourse is under threat around the world while speaking to graduates at NYU Abu Dhabi, an event that the school blocked journalists from filming. While obliquely criticizing President Donald Trump, Kerry did not mention the 2015 Iran nuclear deal he secured with other world powers, an accord of which Trump now has pulled America out. [] While never naming Trump, Kerry began his remarks by saying: Given whats going on today, Im glad to be invited anywhere, folks. He quickly added that the U.S. needs to build...

    One might expect the National Rifle Association would opt to burn its money in a huge bonfire before contributing to the campaign of hard-left zealot Sen. Elizabeth Warren, but that didnt stop the Massachusetts Democrat from pledging not to take donations from the pro-Second Amendment group. Proving that Democrats have never met a catchy slogan they will not rally around to create a groundswell of support for their failed agenda, Warren took the pledge being pushed by NoNRAMoney.org, which has declared that its time to make the NRA politically radioactive. I pledge not to take a single penny from the...

    Judge Timothy Feeley must go Massachusetts judge is a menace to society By Jeffrey T. Kuhner Liberal judges in Massachusetts are out of control. They pose a mortal danger to public safety, and need to be reined in. Exhibit A is Salem Superior Court Judge Timothy Feeley. He has blood on his hands. Feeley ruled Tuesday that a notorious local drug dealer, Manuel Soto-Vittini, will not serve any time in prison despite pleading guilty to charges of drug possession with intent to distribute. In particular, Salem police officers arrested Soto-Vittini in June 2015. They found over 40 small bags of...

    Iran is threatening to release the names of Western officials who took bribe money to pass the Iran Nuke Deal. I am not surprised, as an investigator I follow by the name of George Webb spoke about this in one of his latest videos. No wonder John Kerry has been working overtime to save the Iran Nuclear Deal. This is the most corrupt scheme in government history. Those who took kickbacks to pass this Deal should be arrested and charged. Is this not called treason? They played politics with a fragile world on the brink of nuclear war. It is...

    The Obama administration is acknowledging its transfer of $1.7 billion to Iran earlier this year was made entirely in cash, using non-U.S. currency, as Republican critics of the transaction continued to denounce the payments. Treasury Department spokeswoman Dawn Selak said in a statement late Tuesday that the cash payments were necessary because of the "effectiveness of U.S. and international sanctions," which isolated Iran from the international finance system. The $1.7 billion was the settlement of a decades-old arbitration claim between the U.S. and Iran. An initial $400 million of euros, Swiss francs and other foreign currency was delivered on pallets...

In summer 2016, Brennan with his FBI liaison Strzok, along with help from Kerry @ State, were trying to set Russian espionage traps for minor players in the Trump campaign through cultivated intel assets" As we reported in March, Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee was investigating the Obama State Department under John Kerry for its involvement in the dissemination of the unverified "Steele Dossier," along with a second anti-Trump dossier written by Clinton confidant Cody Shearer. Nunes referred to this as "Phase 2" of his committee's probe...

    Close to a decade after the peak of a worldwide economic recession, local real estate agent Michelle Rivera still sees the effects lingering. Riveras business is doing well, but she has doubts about the optimism hinted by the steadily declining unemployment rate. Several of her clients are selling homes in distress, and a few are now working two jobs. A group of 10 renters she knows will soon be displaced because they cannot find a suitable price. Homes that could be acquired two years ago for $200,000, she said, could not be purchased now for $225,000. Unemployment rates appear to...
