Yes, it’s safe to say ‘Christmas’

This just in to the news room – Deval Patrick is no longer governor of the Commonwealth.   We are reminded of these glad tidings by a simple press release that was issued Thanksgiving Eve. It announced that next Tuesday evening, the new governor will be lighting a “Christmas tree” at the State House.   No muss, no fuss, no controversy. It’s Christmas, so a Christmas tree is going up on Beacon Hill. Merry Christmas!   Granted, it’s a small step on a long road, but after eight years of the PC malaise that marked Deval Patrick’s disastrous tenure, at least a bit of normalcy has returned to Massachusetts.   […]

Same terror tune from John Kerry, Barack Obama

So which is it?   Is ISIS on the ropes, on the way out, or are they a threat across the world – so dangerous that only a few hours after Obama and Kerry pooh-poohed the threat, the State Department issued a “Worldwide Travel Alert?”   Until Feb. 24, 2016 – two weeks after the Super Bowl and the New Hampshire primary.   It’s very confusing. Talk about not staying on message – on Monday these fools couldn’t even decide what they want to call these Mideast monsters who either are or aren’t on the verge of murdering us.   Kerry on Monday: “I believe ISIS is going to be […]

1984 in the classroom

  At Triton Regional High School in Rowley, it’s 1984 – the novel, not the year. The sniveling PC school administration is backing off now, but the 32-page questionnaire they were asking their middle and high school students to fill out last week is chilling. It’s downright totalitarian, and it’s put out by the Harvard School of Education, but I repeat myself. The kids from the high and middle schools (the questionnaire included a box for 10-year-olds to check) were asked by the apparatchiks from the People’s Republic of Cambridge to rat out their parents for insufficient Political Correctness. George Orwell’s Ministry of Love would have been impressed. Here’s a […]

Worry about welfare of resettled Syrians

This time it wasn’t immigration, it was welfare. But once again Donald Trump was ahead of the curve, daring to say what most people fear to even think. This time about fatties with food stamps.   “We have 43 million,” he was saying Wednesday night in Worcester, “and it’s probably going to be closer to 50 million people on food stamps. And I’ll tell you what, if we had a real –“   The tubby Democrat stood up and started bellowing. After he was quickly led away, Trump smiled.   “You know it’s amazing,” he told his 10,00-plus fans at the DCU Center. “I mention food stamps and that guy […]

John Kerry’s mouth a diplomatic incident

John Forbes Kerry has said a lot of breathtakingly stupid things over the years, but this latest outbreak of foot-in-mouth disease may be his most appalling yet.   At the US embassy in Paris Tuesday, the secretary of state compared the two Muslim terrorist massacres in France this year – shooting up the Charlie Hedbo magazine offices and then last Friday’s celebration of diversity.   “There’s something different about what happened (Friday) from Hedbo,” he says on the tape, “and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not legitimacy – but a rationale that you […]

Uncharacteristically quiet, Trump’s thoughts on me were loud and clear

As he widens his lead in the polls, it’s getting harder to pry a usable sound bite or headline out of Donald Trump.   Maybe he’s beginning to believe he could win this thing.   Trump will be speaking to an SRO crowd in Worcester tonight at the DCU Center, so he came on my radio show yesterday. I had a whole list of questions, at least one of which I figured could set him off. But it’s not as easy as in the old days, by which I mean July.   The closest I came to making the Drudge Report was when I reminded him of Gov. Charlie Baker, […]
