    Princeton University professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor issued multiple vile attacks against President Donald Trump in her May 20 commencement speech at Hampshire College, a private liberal arts college in Amherst, Massachusetts. Taylor accused Trump of being a “racist, sexist megalomaniac.” “The president of the United States, the most powerful politician in the world, is a racist, sexist megalomaniac,” Taylor said, according to a report by Campus Reform reporter Anthony Gockowski. “It’s not a benign observation, but has meant tragic consequences for many people in our country—from terror-inducing raids in the communities of undocumented immigrants to his disparaging of refugees in search...

    May 17, 2017 (MassResistance) -- An elderly woman in ultra-liberal Carlisle, Mass. had the nerve to publicly criticize the “gay” flag outside of a church in the center of town. She caused such an inflamed reaction that it was reported in Boston’s NBC-TV evening news. (See below.) But she’s not backing down -- which inflames the leftist reactionaries even more! Sally Naumann, an 85-year-old resident of Carlisle and a longtime MassResistance activist, had had enough. She was very upset that the Unitarian Church in the center of town is flying a “gay” rainbow flag outside. She is distressed because people...

    The Newburyport Daily News ^ | May 4, 2017 | Jim Sullivan
    AMESBURY — A recent quality inspection of the $300 million John Greenleaf Whittier Bridge replacement project turned up evidence of substandard work – for the second time – that could push back the project’s estimated late summer/early fall completion date. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation began work to demolish the 62-year-old Interstate 95 bridge over the Merrimack River and replace it with separate northbound and southbound bridges in 2013. While the northbound bridge was completed in 2015, quality inspectors for MassDOT recently found that concrete poured for a pier cap on the southbound bridge by an unnamed contractor did not...

    QUINCY, MA — It’s no secret that President Donald Trump isn’t the most popular guy around Massachusetts and concern from residents over his policies and political actions is understandable a state known for voting blue, but one Quincy woman is taking her worry to the court. Rossi Wade, formerly of Plymouth and now of the City of Presidents, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Boston against the United States Government and Trump, accusing the commander in chief of discrimination, mental anguish, and mental cruelty against her. The lawsuit additionally states that she suffered a loss of enjoyment of...

    The Syracuse Post-Standard ^ | April 26, 2017 | Charley Hannagan
    Syracuse, N.Y. --There's not a lot tunnel building going on in the United States. Four highway tunnels have been completed over the last 10 years in the U.S. Four more tunnel projects are under construction or in design. And one long discussed project that would have tunneled underneath a national forest in California was dropped. Could be a tunnel in Syracuse's future for Interstate 81? After a tunnel was initially rejected, a tunnel or depressed highway is back on the table as an option to replace Interstate 81's 1.4 mile section of raised highway in Syracuse. The DOT at first...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
