    State House News (Massachusetts) ^ | January 11, 2021 | Chris Lisinski
    BOSTON — Massachusetts lawmakers last week took a step toward potentially replacing the official state seal and motto, a victory for activists who have argued for decades that the current versions disparage Native Americans. A legislative resolve creating a commission to recommend a new seal and motto (S 2848) emerged in the final hours of the 2020-2021 lawmaking session, earning support from both branches and landing on Gov. Charlie Baker's desk just after 4 a.m.
  • Great white spotted munching on seal off Cape Cod coast well after peak shark season

    A great white shark got its Thanksgiving feast over the weekend. The shark was spotted thrashing around Wellfleet Harbor at high tide Sunday. The predator was apparently devouring a seal off the Cape Cod coast. The animal’s ultimate holiday banquet was caught on camera by fisherman Keith Rose of the “Kimberly Ann” fishing vessel, according to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC), a nonprofit that supports scientific research and tracks shark sightings. “There’s a great white finishing off his seal,” the fisherman can be heard saying in one of two videos the conservancy posted. Rose, stunned, proceeds to tell the...

    Retired Adm. William McRaven wrote an op-ed article Monday in The Wall Street Journal saying he held certain conservative viewpoints but also believed in ideas like "Black lives matter." He wrote that he voted for the Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, because "we need a president for all Americans, not just half of America." McRaven has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, who he has accused of harming American values and tearing down US institutions.

    Delta Air Lines said Thursday that it has banned retired U.S. Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, the man credited with killing Osama Bin Laden, for allegedly failing to wear a mask during a recent flight. O’Neill, 44, tweeted that he had been banned from the airline “for posting a picture.” Earlier this week, O’Neill posted a now-deleted mask-less selfie while sitting on a Delta plane, with the caption, "I'm not a [expletive]." “Part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta is the requirement to acknowledge our updated travel policies, which includes wearing a mask,” a Delta spokesman told FOX...

  • LETTER: Sharks contribute to Cape economic, safety crisis

    Cape Cod Times ^ | June 21, 2020 | Ron Beaty
    Because of our menacing great white shark and the seal overpopulation dilemma, Cape Cod is in an ecological, public safety and economic crisis. The exploding seal population is a consequence of the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act, which allowed for the rapidly growing seal overpopulation. Seals attract great white sharks, which feed upon them and ferociously attack humans. We once had a thriving fishing industry, kept healthy in part by a bounty system of predator control. That ended in 1972 with the passage of the protection act, which not only lifted the bounties on fish-eating predators like seals, but placed...

    [Catholic/Orthodox Caucus] Fr. Jan Kobylowicz: Living Martyr of the Confessional Seal The sacrament of Confession has been under attack in Australia since the conclusion of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in December of 2017. Several states have now passed legislation that requires Catholic priests to violate the confessional seal in cases where child sexual abuse is revealed in confession. The Queensland Labor government has announced its intention to table a similar bill in the coming weeks, making it the latest Australian state to openly attack the Catholic Church and her sacraments by use of the...

    Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill bashed former FBI Director James Comey after the release of the Department of Justice inspector general's report on alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses by FBI officials during President Trump's 2016 campaign. Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report on Dec. 9, following his two-year investigation into the FBI's and the DOJ's use of FISA warrants to surveil Trump’s campaign for evidence of election interference collusion with Russian agents. The report outlined 17 "significant errors or omissions" by FBI officials in the FISA applications to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page but determined political bias...

    HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (Reuters) - The U.S. Navy Secretary said on Saturday he did not threaten to resign amid a disagreement with President Donald Trump over whether a Navy SEAL convicted of battlefield misconduct should face a board of peers who may oust him from the elite force. “There seem to be rumors out there that I threatened to resign. I have not threatened to resign,” Richard Spencer told reporters at a security conference in Halifax. The New York Times reported earlier on Saturday that Spencer had threatened to quit if Trump subverted the process. Spencer said Special Operations Chief...

    Navy Secretary Richard Spencer said Friday that he believes Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher should face a board of his peers to determine whether he should be removed from the force, despite opposition from President Trump. “I believe the process matters for good order and discipline,” Spencer told Reuters. In July, a military jury convicted Gallagher, 40, of posing for pictures with a corpse of an ISIS fighter during a 2017 deployment in Iraq. The conviction resulted in loss of rank and reduction in pay, but didn't include jail time. Gallagher was acquitted on several other charges, including murder of the...

    The man who created the altered presidential seal that appeared behind President Trump briefly as he gave a speech earlier this week is a 46-year-old graphic designer who crafted the image after becoming disenchanted by Trump and the GOP. “This is the most petty piece of art I have ever created,” Charles Leazott, a former Republican who voted for former President George W. Bush twice, told The Washington Post in an interview. The Post noted that Leazott crafted the fake presidential seal following the 2016 presidential election. But the design grabbed widespread attention on Thursday after news outlets reported that...
