What if William McKinley had been gay? I guarantee you this posthumous indignity would not have been visited upon him. I mean, when it comes to Political Correctness, doesn’t President McKinley measure up? He was a veteran of the Civil War – that means he fought to free the slaves. He was assassinated, in other words a victim of senseless gun violence. He twice defeated a rabid anti-Semite by the name of William Jennings Bryan — remember the “Cross of Gold” speech? He pioneered the use of the ethnic slurs that MSNBC calls dog whistles — “Rothschilds!” was Bryan’s favorite. He later became secretary of state […]
Howie talks to Senator Cruz about a number of issues including Obama’s decision to rename Mt. McKinley, Cruz’s opinions on Donald Trump and illegal executive amnesty.
Hillary Clinton has become Richard Nixon. Consider the top three words voters used to describe her in a new poll this week: “Liar… dishonest… untrustworthy.” Also in the top 12: “crook… untruthful… criminal… deceitful.” Crook – as in “I am not a crook,” a quintessential Nixon quote. Even the positive words that respondents used to describe Hillary were the same words that probably would have turned up in a survey about Tricky Dick circa 1974: “experience… strong… smart.” All this comes out of the new Quinnipiac poll, which showed Donald Trump soaring on the Republican side and Hillary crashing among her fellow Democrats, even though the […]
Ex-Rep. John George Jr. is a crooked Democrat, and next month he begins his 80-month federal prison sentence for embezzling hundreds of thousands in public money – so far this is strictly a dog-bites-man story, right? At age 69, the Bristol County farmer/felon made many mistakes during his sordid life of crime. For instance, for his trial he hired a jailbird lawyer whose own mobbed-up once-disbarred name can be found on the Bureau of Prisons inmate locator. (William Cintolo, BOP number 14829-038.) Then, after taking the stand in his own defense (which guaranteed his conviction), George had at least two fellow State House corrupt hacks write letters to […]
Who is the MaineOxy Tool of the Month?
How many more languages can Juan Ellis Bush say I’m sorry in? Even Barack Obama waited until after he was elected president to begin his world apology tour. (Remember America’s “Muslim founding fathers?”) Juan’s poll numbers are lower than whale excrement, and dropping. But he’s still running around the country, sticking his foot in his mouth on any almost daily basis. Just google “Jeb Bush” and “misspoke.” Wanted to cut off all funding to Planned Parenthood – he “misspoke.” On a voter-registration form in Miami, he listed himself as “Hispanic.” He apologized. He said aliens are “more fertile” than citizens. Another apology followed. His […]
Zip Connolly always dreamed of watching a Hollywood movie about himself, and now his wish is about to come true. Alas, this screen gem is not about the heroism of the “decorated hero fed,” as the bent cop always so modestly described himself. It’s about the serial killer who owned him – Whitey Bulger. Tough break for Zip, who in his prime made a training video advising young G-men in training at Quantico, “Never try to out-gangster a gangster.” Now, in his dotage, doing life in the Florida Panhandle for one of Whitey’s contract hits, Zip tries to out-lawyer the lawyers. And the hero G-man is having […]
It used to be against the law to commit welfare fraud in Massachusetts. Hard to believe, I know, but it’s true. Not only did the taxpayers keep close tabs on layabouts, but you could be thrown in jail if you didn’t… work. Work! There, I said it. The ultimate dog-whistle four-letter word – work. I came across this forgotten world recently, in the Herald’s library of old clippings. I was searching for information about some long-dead associate of the Kennedy Crime Family. As I thumbed through the yellowing files, I noticed an envelope with these astonishing words typed across the top: STURNIOLO CHARLES – WELFARE FRAUD […]
