    Mystery surrounds the whereabouts of China’s richest man after he criticised the regime. Jack Ma has vanished from his own TV talent show and there has been no sign of him since late October. The 56-year-old is said to have made around £35 billion from creating Alibaba, the Asian version of Amazon, and was a poster boy for the communist regime. But China’s rulers seemed to turn against him after he criticised regulators and state-owned banks at a financial technology conference in October. His profile has gone from the judging webpage of Africa’s Business Heroes – a Dragons’ Den-style TV...

    We’ve posted explanations and factsheets and critiques from our affiliate, Massachusetts Citizens for Life, of the latest over-the-top pro-abortion proposal–abortion up until birth and the removal of protection for abortion survivors, for starters. But all that our affiliate did, along with the Massachusetts Catholic Conference, did not prevent the legislature from passing Amendment 759 (in the House) and Amendment 180 (in the Senate) to the proposed fiscal year 2021 state budget. As the Boston Pilot explained Legislators had inserted amendments into house and senate budget bills that would effectively implement the “ROE Act,” a bill proposed in 2019 to legalize...

    The Nantucket Police Department in Massachusetts announced Wednesday that its officers would indefinitely halt new weapons permit applications due to heightened risk of coronavirus spread. The department initially announced the decision on Twitter, writing that all fingerprint services were to be suspended, but the post was removed shortly after. The law enforcement body said the reason for its decision was that the employees who fielded the applications expressed “concern that they could not safely do their jobs,” according to a press release.
  • Massachusetts watchdog group warns against daily tax remittances proposed in Gov. Charlie Baker’s fiscal 2021 budget

    The need for state revenue during a pandemic-driven recession shouldn’t convince lawmakers to adopt the daily retail tax remittance schedule proposed under Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s budget plan, a fiscal watchdog group says. The Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation said in a position paper released Tuesday an accelerated sales tax remittance schedule proposed by both Baker and the House is a straightforward way to bring in $267 million in one-time revenue, but cautioned against putting the state on track to collect tax revenue daily from retailers. The details would be up to state regulators, not the Legislature. “Despite the many challenges caused...

    Gov. Charlie Baker’s new mask mandate that requires people to wear masks in public at all times — no matter how far away they are from other people — is catching flack from a health care expert who questions what it will do to reduce infections. “Masks now mandated outdoors in MA regardless of distancing. How will this reduce infections? Most transmission is happening indoors, so ensure people have safer spaces to gather: tents, heat lamps, fire pits. Focus on actual risk, not pandemic theater,” tweeted Julia Marcus, epidemiologist and associate professor at Harvard Medical School.

The order goes into effect Friday. “The simple truth is this — too many of us have become complacent in our daily lives,” Baker said.

    Multiple pictures and videos allegedly showing Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden engaging in sexual acts with several women and using drugs went viral on the Internet on Saturday, October 24, making people question if the visuals were fake or real. According to a Washington Examiner report, the videos and photos were uploaded on the Chinese website GTV, with many of the pictures seemingly from a third-party laptop. GTV, a subsidiary of GTV Media Group, was established in April 2020 by Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui and Steve Bannon, a former senior adviser to President Trump. “U.S. presidential candidate...

    BOSTON — Joe Biden is considering Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker for a cabinet post if the Democratic presidential nominee wins the Nov. 3 election. "It wouldn't be a shock for Biden, especially given the kind of campaign he's running as a unifying figure to find a Republican figure to put in his cabinet," David Hopkins, associate professor of political science at Boston College, said. "Baker would be the kind of Republican Biden would want: a moderate Republican who is not a Trump supporter." Politico reported Tuesday that Biden's team is looking into the backgrounds of some Republicans as they put...

    Leftists continue to lose their minds — or believe they can get away with blatant violence — in public places full of surveillance cameras. What are the details? Police in Fall River, Massachusetts, said a mother was driving with her 11-year-old daughter in the area of South Main and Hall streets last week when two women in another vehicle apparently didn't take too kindly to the mom's flags supporting President Donald Trump that were flying off both sides of her SUV, WHDH-TV reported. Police provided the station with surveillance video showing the initial part of the confrontation, as the Trump...

    Governor Charlie Baker on Wednesday reaffirmed that he will not vote for President Trump, a fellow Republican, though he declined to discuss how he might cast his ballot. Asked by a reporter during a State House news conference how he would vote in the Nov. 3 presidential election, Baker declined to answer. Later in the day, his office issued a statement. “The governor cannot support Donald Trump for president and is focused on seeing Massachusetts through the pandemic. He’ll leave the election analysis to the pundits,” Baker’s office said.

    This article is an adapted excerpt from “Abuse of Power: Inside the Three-Year Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s avoidance of impeachment was going to be one of many problems the House speaker would have with “The Squad.” Over the summer, her grip on power began to weaken, as she tried to put down a party rebellion.Pelosi’s compromise border security funding bill initially had only nominal Democratic opposition. But The Squad, consisting of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley, wanted to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, not fund it.

    Joe Biden’s presidential campaign privately apologized to radical left-wing activist Linda Sarsour after publicly condemning her extreme anti-Israel views last week. Sarsour is a leader of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which singles out Israel for isolation. As a former leader of the anti-Trump Women’s March, she excluded pro-Israel Jewish women and maintained ties with the racist and antisemitic Nation of Islam. She also called for “jihad” against President Donald Trump. Last week, Sarsour spoke during the Democratic National Convention’s virtual caucus meeting for the Muslim Delegates and Allies Assembly, declaring that the Democratic Party was “absolutely our...

    The method prosecutors said they used to get Alexander Yuk Ching Ma to reveal the nature of his espionage was worthy of a spy novel itself.
