  • Massachusetts 4th Congressional District: Thousands of ballots found in Franklin, Jesse Mermell’s campaign solicits recount signatures The race is still too close to call

    A recount could be looming in the 4th Congressional District race between two Democrats as more uncounted ballots surfaced on Thursday. Officials in Newton, Wellesley and Franklin on Thursday restarted counting primary ballots after Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin filed a court order to authorize local poll workers to continue counting ballots that were received on time and had not been tallied by the end of Tuesday night. In Franklin, poll workers Thursday evening were counting about 3,000 uncounted ballots — much more than the previously estimated 600 uncounted ballots, according to a spokeswoman for the Secretary of the...

    While driving home this morning from my visit to my Dad's gravesite I drove through Wellesley,Massachusetts...the very same town where Hillary Rotten Clinton first fell in love with Saul Alinsky. Wellesley's an affluent town,populated largely by physicians,lawyers and college professors...and it's very,*very* "progressive". To my amazement I saw a yard sign (in front of a rather nice house) that said "ALL LIVES MATTER". I almost drove into a tree,stunned that anyone in the town would have such a sign and that the house hasn't been burned down yet. This is something I'll be able to tell the grandkids! ;-)

    The College Fix ^ | 3/02/20 | JENNIFER KABBANY
    Some students at the venerable, all-female Wellesley College are calling for an end to use of the term … women. A staff editorial in the Wellesley News bemoans the popular on-campus catchphrases such as “Wellesley sisters,” “Women Who Will,” and “Wellesley women,” and asks that instead there be a more concerted effort to use gender-neutral language all around. In particular, three suggestions put forth by the campus journalists are: When discussing the student body, say “Wellesley students” rather than “Wellesley women.” Avoid making statements like “We’re all women here…” Use gender-neutral language whenever possible in syllabi and other general written...

    A Massachusetts college professor was fired for posting a Facebook status encouraging Iran to list 52 American cultural sites that it would bomb, according to new reports. Asheen Phansey, the director of sustainability at Babson College in Wellesley, shared the since-deleted post — a response to a tweet by President Trump stating that the US had picked out 52 Iranian cultural sites for destruction — on Tuesday. “In retaliation, Ayatollah Khomenei [sic] should tweet a list of 52 sites of beloved American cultural heritage that he would bomb,” said the post, first obtained in a screenshot by the website

    Hey kids, it's time for another edition of, "Clintons Say the Darnedest Things". Hillary Clinton warned her audience of the rise of fascism in America during an alumnae event held at Wellesley College. “I think Madeline [Albright]'s book is really well-named: "Fascism: A Warning," Clinton said. “And the idea that 'oh, it can’t happen here' is just old-fashioned, my friends.” “The demagoguery, the appeal to the crowd, the very clever use of symbols, the intimidation, verbal and physical,” she listed, “this is a classic pattern. There is nothing new about it, it's just different means of messages being delivered." Fascism...

    Hillary Clinton warned her audience of the rise of fascism in America during an alumnae event held at Wellesley College. The former presidential candidate joined former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, both alumnae of the school, on campus for a reunion event at the all-women’s college, according to The Hill. The two were interviewed on stage by Wellesley president Paula A. Johnson. During the interview, Clinton alluded to President Donald Trump as a proponent of a fascist America. "There is nothing new about it, it's just different means of messages being delivered. “I think Madeline [Albright]'s book is really well-named:...

    I did not return to my alma mater to hear Hillary Rodham Clinton deliver her commencement address to the Wellesley Class of 2017. Nor did I – in the manner of my more liberal alumnae friends here on the West Coast – opt to rise very early on the morning of Friday, May 26 to catch a live broadcast of it. Even had I been so inclined, I figured I pretty well knew what Hillary would say in that much anticipated talk to a largely partisan crowd of graduates, their parents, and their well-wishers. To some extent, I was wrong....

    Hillary Rodham Clinton, Class of '69, returned to Wellesley College yesterday and told the new graduates with a straight face, "You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason." Folks, you can’t make this stuff up. Hillary Clinton, lecturing the youth of America about the dangers of lying, and pointing the finger ... at somebody else. She accused President Trump of proposing a budget that was a "lie. Let's call it what it is. It's a con." Like, say, the Clinton Foundation? "They don't even try to hide it. Why does all...

    Hillary Clinton can’t catch a break — but she has no problem catching a cold. The twice-failed presidential candidate on Friday struggled through an otherwise inspiring commencement speech at Wellesley College, her alma mater, enduring a lengthy coughing fit that left her, once again, red in the face and bleary eyed.

    Hillary Clinton suggested her campaign rival President Trump will get impeached, in sharp remarks in a commencement address Friday where she brought up 'obstruction of justice' and warned of the steps to authoritarianism. Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee's impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about.

    Hillary Clinton struggled to speak shortly after beginning her speech at the Wellesley College commencement ceremony Friday. A college official rushed to deliver her a lozenge and water bottle as she choked on her words. She credited her croaky delivery to allergies rather than emotions, which drew cheers and laughs from the crowd.

    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.”

    In an email to fellow faculty yesterday afternoon, a committee of Wellesley College professors made several startling recommendations about how they think future campus speakers should be chosen. If implemented, the proposals by the faculty Commission for Ethnicity, Race, and Equity would have a profound impact on the quality and quantity of voices Wellesley students would be permitted to hear. FIRE has obtained the email, sent by one of the signatories to a faculty listserv, and republished it in full below. While paying lip service to free speech, the email is remarkable in its contempt for free and open dialogue...

    Two Babson College students are reportedly in trouble after their idea of Donald Trump victory celebration was too much for some to handle. According to a Boston Globe report, the two fraternity brothers placed a large Trump flag in the back of a pickup truck and drove through the streets of nearby Wellesley College, a women’s liberal arts college that also happens to be Hillary Clinton’s alma mater. A brief video of the alleged incident was posted to Facebook on Thursday. The incident was upsetting to some on the Wellesley campus and reports indicate police were called to put an...

Just as conservative authors have speculated, it was the Clintons who asked Wellesley in 1993 to hide Hillary Rodham's senior thesis from the first generation of Clinton biographers, according to her thesis adviser and friend, professor Alan H.
