  • 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...
  • Massachusetts Republican beats trans driver’s license bill by forcing votes on all 73 genders

    Legislation to add a “Gender X” option to driver’s license should have been a straightforward task in the far-left state of Massachusetts, but one Republican lawmaker managed to derail the bill by taking transgender ideology to its furthest extreme. The state Senate voted in June to approve the measure, which would have also extended the option to learner’s permits and state identification cards. No documentation would have been required to prove an applicant is neither male nor female. “It’s a milestone,” bill sponsor Sen. Karen Spilka, a Democrat, said at the time. Despite the state House of Representatives being just...

    Mass. School District Pushes Political Correctness in Math Class by Josh Montez, correspondent SUMMARY: Why would any school district force political correctness down the throats of students in math class? Let's hope it's not a trend. The Newton, Mass., public school district is pushing a divisive, politically correct agenda -- in math classes. Brian Camenker, the director of the Parents Rights Coalition in Newton, is not at all pleased. "The way these people play with the kids' minds is really horrible," said Camenker, whose two children were educated in Newton public schools in the Bay State. He's especially not happy...
  • Mountain: It was inevitable (Newton Gay School Superintendents)

    Newton TAB (Feb. 22, 2013) - Today Superintendent Jeffrey Young announced the hiring of the first transgender principal in Newton. Mr. Young declared that his selection came "after a nationwide search for the best possible principal" and that "his/her sexual orientation had nothing to do with his selection." Nevertheless, transgender groups across America applauded his choice, since this also represents the first transgender principal in the nation. Retiring Mayor David Cohen was thrilled with Young's selection and cited it as yet "another example of Newton's commitment to tolerance and diversity." After a two-year nationwide search which involved soliciting, researching, and...

    A group of Massachusetts-based taxpayers are suing the school committee in the city of Newton, a wealthy, liberal enclave, over what they claim is the leadership's ongoing promotion of anti-Semitic school materials and the promotion of Islamic religious beliefs, according to an announcement from the organization handling the lawsuit. Education Without Indoctrination, a local community group driving the lawsuit, "claims multiple violations of the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law stemming from the school committee's handling of a burgeoning scandal over anti-Semitic lessons and the promotion of Islamic religious beliefs as objective facts in the public school district's history classes," according to...

    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.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will introduce legislation Wednesday aimed at making the nation's largest companies accountable to employees and their local communities, not just shareholders. In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Warren said companies in the late 20th Century started operating in a way that made them slaves to shareholders. "That shift has had a tremendous effect on the economy," she wrote. "In the early 1980s, large American companies sent less than half their earnings to shareholders, spending the rest on their employees and other priorities." "But between 2007 and 2016, large American companies dedicated 93% of their...

    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....

    Media outlets this week are all over a new Pew study that finds, the headlines promise, that President Trump's support is not quite as broad and not quite as happy as his stunningly stable approval rating might suggest. But what's striking from the numbers, at least as far as I can see, is not how much support Trump has lost but how, given the daily barrage of tweets and countertweets; ugly chants and ugly corruption trials (his campaign chairman); intense criticism in the media; all-out war in Congress; and foreign policy flubs and domestic failures, much remains firm, and how...

    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...

    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 ...

    Report: teachers balked at increased objectivity. A group of history school teachers in Massachusetts pledged to reject teaching objectivity while they conspired to hide their anti-Trump prejudice, emails show. The Federalist reported that the Newton North High School teachers were instructed by the principal to show their students different perspectives on issues like gun laws and immigration. Teacher David Bedar accused the president and his supporters of “nativism, xenophobia, homophobia, etc.” and wrote that he found it difficult to teach other perspectives in early 2017. "Personally, I’m finding it really difficult in the current climate to teach kids to appreciate...

    Mitt Romney is calling on Americans to “categorically and consistently reject racism and discrimination” on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 and on the eve of a repeat of the Unite the Right rally this year in Washington, DC. The former Massachusetts governor and current US Senate candidate in Utah issued a lengthy statement on Friday defending equality, steeped in his religious upbringing and belief that “we are all children of God.” Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, touched on a number of issues in his post.
