BOSTON – The FBI has positively identified the two robbers who in 1990 committed the largest art heist in history, stealing over $500 million worth of masterpieces from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum here. One of them is a local ex-con who was free only because his lawyer, now Secretary of State John Kerry, was able to get his first-degree murder conviction overturned in 1982.
When Ted Kennedy wrote his initial account of Chappaquiddick for the Edgartown police in 1969, after he scrawled the words “Mary Jo” in the first sentence he left a blank space – because he had no idea what his victim’s last name was. That’s one of the many facts about Ted Kennedy that you won’t learn by visiting the new Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. In case you haven’t been eagerly anticipating this magic moment, the “Institute” opens tomorrow amidst yet another orgy of shameless bumkissing of what was once called “America’s First Family” by the meretricious mainstream media. It will be a monument […]
Who elected John Fish? Seriously, when did this guy run statewide, and for what office, and where in the state Constitution does it say that it’s now his call whether he will deign to allow a statewide referendum question on his demented scheme to beggar the taxpayers of Massachusetts? Why do I have my doubts about his sincerity in agreeing to abide by the will of the people? First the jocksniffers were against any referendum, and they were damn haughty about it. Then his first stooge at Boston 2024 sneered that even if the electorate voted thumbs down, they’d get the Olympics anyway – and like it, […]

Gary Lee Sampson is this week’s poster boy for the death penalty. In a sane society, this admitted mass murderer (he brags about being a “stone cold killer”) would have been put down at least a decade ago. But in modern America, a punk who murdered three people in cold blood in 2001 is instead getting a new trial here in Boston on the question of whether he should be executed. He’s been in the federal lockup at Terre Haute, IN since 2004, but Judge Mark Wolf ordered a new death-penalty trial for him back in 2011. This is the same Wolf who ordered the Commonwealth to pay […]
Whatever happened to bicycle lanes? They were enough of a blister for us poor oppressed motorists, but now the Spandex-Americans are demanding “cycle tracks.” Cycle tracks for psychopaths! You’re probably wondering, under this new plan for Commonwealth Avenue out around BU, where are they going to get the extra room for “cycle tracks,” which are six-and-a-half feet wide, plus of course a three-foot “buffer?” But you already know the answer to that, don’t know? The diagrams are rather confusing, but I don’t see any parking spaces for cars, at least at the in-bound “turn-lanes,” whatever they are. Which raises the larger question, where the hell […]
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is maintaining a razor-thin lead over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush among Republican voters in New Hampshire, which holds the first presidential primary in the nation next year.
There’s only way to drive a final stake through the heart of this misbegotten monster known as Boston 2024 — a referendum question on the 2016 ballot. Let the voters of Massachusetts decide, once and for all. In another time, after the disasters and scandals that have befallen Boston 2024, the hacks pushing the Summer Olympics would have already folded their tents and slunk away in shame. But these connivers have no shame. They used to work for Deval Patrick. All they care about is another score. These are the payroll patriots who saddled Charlie Baker with a $1 billion deficit, who wrecked the healthcare.gov website (another […]
