  • Charlie Baker lifts 9:30 p.m. curfew on restaurants, other businesses effective Monday but capacity limits continue

    01/21/2021 6:09:47 PM PST · by matt04 · 6 replies
    A curfew mandating restaurants and most other businesses to close by 9:30 p.m. lifts on Monday, but industries hit hard by the coronavirus will have to live with customer capacity caps of 25% for another two weeks, Gov. Charlie Baker announced. “Vaccines are reaching residents, positive case rates have stabilized. Those trends are moving in the right direction. As a result, we believe it’s time and it’s OK to start gradually easing on the restrictions we put in place,” Baker said during his regular coronavirus briefing at the State House on Thursday. “Allowing diners to have more time to enjoy...

    According to reports, Biden has chosen Boston Mayor Marty Walsh as Secretary of Labor. Walsh, a former president of his city’s building and construction trades council, was considered a favorite “top of labor leaders” like AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka for the role. Walsh’s personal ties with Biden, who spoke at his 2017 city inaugural, also likely helped him clinch the secretary of labor role. Trumka, back in 2019, told Politico: “He’s a friend and knows Joe: They’ve worked together on numerous occasions. They have the relationship I think is necessary.” According to reports, in August of 2019, two high profile...
  • Bill Russell cites Martin Luther King Jr. in call for Congressional action against Donald Trump: 'Good vs. evil'

    As the nation celebrates the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Bill Russell invoked the civil rights icon Monday in a plea for action in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. The NBA legend tweeted a message quoting King in a call for accountability for President Trump for his role in inciting his supporters to march on the Capitol before they ransacked the building in an assault that claimed five lives. Russell framed his message as a matter of “good vs. evil” and quoted a passage from a sermon King delivered in New York...

  • Markey: We Were Within Minutes of a Capitol ‘Massacre,’ Senate Must Have Full Trial for Trump

    Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “All In” that President Donald Trump will have a full trial in the Senate “for his incitement of an insurrection.” Markey said I was very proud of the way in which the House of Representatives conducted the debate and ultimately cast the correct historical vote to impeach Donald Trump. I think that it’s the only answer that can be given. History must have recorded that there was a second indelible impeachment scarlet letter that was attached to Donald Trump and to his presidency. I think that the excellent work which they did...

    Below is an email I received on Jan 11 from Congresswoman Katherine Clark, of the 5th district in Massachusetts, where I live, from her official email address, ma05kcima@mail.house.gov . Friends, The President and his corrupt enablers summoned a seditious mob to our nation's capital, whipped them into a violent frenzy, and unleashed them upon the United States Capitol building as Members of Congress and the Vice President were certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election. We all saw what happened next: insurrectionists desecrated the center of our government, determined to forcefully overturn the results of a free and fair...
  • Trump Warns Democrats: Impeachment “Witch Hunt” Is “Causing Tremendous Anger”

    Update (1015ET): For the first time since the Capitol riots, President Trump spoke briefly to a small pool of reporters at The White House as he left for Texas today slamming the Democrats ongoing impeachment efforts, calling the resolution “a terrible thing that they’re doing.” Impeachment is a “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics”. “I think it’s causing tremendous anger.” Trump added that “we want no violence,” and said that his January 6th speech was “totally appropriate.” “We have support probably like nobody’s ever seen before,” The President then went on to discuss the social...

    Campus Reform ^ | January 1, 2021 | Benjamin Zeisloft
    Over the years, Campus Reform has reported on hundreds of instances of anti-Christian sentiment at American universities. Here are five of the worst instances from this year. 1. Harvard University. Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Bartholet called for a ban on homeschooling, decrying “conservative Christians” in the process. In a Harvard Gazette interview entitled “A warning on homeschooling,” Bartholet attributed rising interest in homeschooling to the “growth in the conservative evangelical movement,” stating that “conservative Christians” use the practice to “escape from the secular education in public schools,” after a failed effort “to have their children exempted from exposure to alternative...

    A COVID-19 outbreak in Nantucket has its wealthy residents turning against each other — with some resorting to trying to “rat” out those defying public health rules. The attempts to take matters into their own hands in the tony Massachusetts enclave came amid an “astronomical” rise in cases following Thanksgiving, the Daily Beast reported.

    Christian Post ^ | 12/29/2020 | Ryan Foley
    Just days after Gov. Charlie Baker vetoed a bill that would expand abortion access in Massachusetts, the state’s Democrat-led House of Representatives has voted to override the veto. Last week, Baker, a Republican who supports abortion, elected to veto abortion legislation known as the ROE Act. The bill, which was originally included as part of the state’s budget for fiscal year 2021, would codify the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion nationwide into law and loosen abortion restrictions in the state. “I strongly support a woman’s right to access reproductive health care, and many provisions of this...

    A statue of Abraham Lincoln with a freed slave appearing to kneel at his feet - optics that drew objections amid a national reckoning with racial injustice - has been removed from its perch in downtown Boston. Workers removed the Emancipation Memorial, also known as the Emancipation Group and the Freedman’s Memorial, early Tuesday from a park just off Boston Common where it had stood since 1879. City officials had agreed in late June to take down the memorial after complaints and a bitter debate over the design. Mayor Marty Walsh acknowledged at the time that the statue made residents...
  • Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker Vetoes Bill Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth

    lifenews ^ | 12/26/2020 | Steven Ertelt
    The governor of Massachusetts has vetoed a radical pro-abortion bill to legalize abortions up to birth and allow young girls to get abortions without a parent’s knowledge or consent. The state House and Senate sent the bill back to Gov. Charlie Baker on Tuesday, rejecting changes he made earlier this month to protect teens from secret abortions without their parents knowing. Baker, a pro-abortion Republican, amended the bill to limit its expansion of late-term abortions and to require parental consent before underage girls get abortions. The vote to reject Baker’s changes in the state House was 107-50, and the vote...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 12/27/2020 | Meghan Cox Gurdon
    A sustained effort is under way to deny children access to literature. Under the slogan #DisruptTexts, critical-theory ideologues, schoolteachers and Twitter agitators are purging and propagandizing against classic texts—everything from Homer to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Dr. Seuss. Their ethos holds that children shouldn’t have to read stories written in anything other than the present-day vernacular—especially those “in which racism, sexism, ableism, anti-Semitism, and other forms of hate are the norm,” as young-adult novelist Padma Venkatraman writes in School Library Journal. No author is valuable enough to spare, Ms. Venkatraman instructs: “Absolving Shakespeare of responsibility by mentioning that he lived...

    'Squad' bill not tied with other coronavirus aid, unlike bill introduced by Rep. Richard Neal ------ Members of the progressive "Squad" in the House on Thursday introduced their own bill to send $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans after President Trump this week demanded the $600 checks included in Congress' stimulus deal be increased to that number. The legislation was spearheaded by Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; and Pramila Jayapal D-Wash. It came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the House will meet on Monday to vote on stand-alone legislation for $2,000...

    A woman who worked for the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance after getting out of prison for identity theft got right back to her old tricks, the feds say, claiming she used her position to try to swindle money out of the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance for her, her husband and their seven fictional children. Tiffany Pacheco, also known as Tiffany Tavery or Tiffany Wolfe, 35, and her husband Arthur Pacheco, 47, were both arrested in Texas on Thursday. Both are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and Tiffany Pacheco is also charged with wire fraud. Though Tiffany Pacheco in...

    NEW YORK - Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a book coming out about six key experiences and perspectives. The title should be familiar to those who have followed the Massachusetts Democrat’s career: “Persist.” Henry Holt and Company announced Wednesday that “Persist,” which the publisher calls “a deeply personal book and a powerful call to action,” will be released April 20. “Persist” will refer to Warren’s recent bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, won by Joe Biden, but is not a campaign memoir. “I wrote ‘Persist’ because I remain as committed as ever to fighting for an America that works for everyone,”...
