Sen. Michael Rodrigues, D-Westport, has mixed feelings about taxes. He supports more and higher – much higher — taxes for you, but as for paying them himself, he has a full-blown phobia. I mean, this is the guy who as a state rep in 2009 voted to jack up the sales tax 25 percent and also impose a new sales tax on alcohol. Then he jumped in his Crown Vic with the House 29 license plate and drove to New Hampshire to load up his trunk with cheap, untaxed Granite State booze. Hypocrisy much? Now the statesman is “revenue chairman” of the Senate, and he desperately connives […]
It’s always been clear who Boston 2024’s core constituencies are – pinky-ring thug unions and greedhead contractors dreaming of the next Big Dig, as well as shiftless hacks answering the bell for post-Deval no-show six-figure jobs. And now another special-interest group leaps into the bare-knuckle Olympic brawl: ex-con politicians. Considering the hordes of jailbirds loitering around the State House and City Hall, this could be the tipping point. Come on down ex-Sen. Dianne Wilkerson, D-Danbury and Roxbury, Bureau of Prisons #21757-038. Like every other sticky-fingered hack in the city, convicted or otherwise, she heard the Boston 2024 dog whistle, and tried to sign on as a “consultant” on, […]
Rick Green, CEO of Mass Fiscal Alliance, joins Howie to talk about reforming the MBTA.
When it comes to corruption, there’s always a connection back to Boston. Always. Just ask US Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-FL, who is demanding a pay raise for Congress, up from $174,000. According to Roll Call, Alcee is the second poorest member of Congress, with a net worth of negative $2.23 million. Most of the debt involves legal bills associated with his 1989 removal from the federal bench on corruption charges by the Congress in which he now serves. Judge Hastings’ downfall began when his bagman accepted $150,000 from an FBI agent who he thought was a gangster. That FBI agent was H. Paul Rico of Boston, and as […]
Howie talks with Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers about her new book, “The Silencing.”
Of course he’s from Massachusetts. How could George “Steffi” Stephanopoulos possibly be from anywhere else – he’s insufferably smug, duplicitous, Politically Correct, corrupt and obscenely overpaid. And most significantly, in the tradition of every Bay State sleaze from Ted Kennedy to Barney Frank to Jonathan Gruber, Steffi is going to get away with it. Being a moonbat means never having to say you’re sorry. Somewhere, disgraced NBC “News” anchor Brian Williams must be thinking: “I can’t believe my career is over, and Steffi’s isn’t.” Last week Steffi was outed as a world-class hypocrite and fraud, attacking author Peter Schweizer on ABC “News” as a paid shill […]
