On Saturday in Fitchburg I attended one of the Defund Planned Parenthood protests that took place around the country as the speaker. While nationally the effort ran afoul of GOP senators John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski In Massachusetts the effort is a tad different as it is necessary to amend the Massachusetts Constitution … Continue reading Saturday at the Defund PP Protest
You wanted confirmation, Captain? Take a look! There's your confirmation! Lt. Kaminsky Tora Tora Tora William Jacobson is a very fair-minded man. When writing about Marisa DeFranco getting her 15k signatures to challenge Elizabeth Warren. He said this about the next hurdle she would need to overcome: As indicated in the video below, DeFranco would … Continue reading Fair point my *** Mr. Franck
With SuperTuesday upon us here in Massachusetts the time had come to see exactly what the situation was at the polls today. I started in Fitchburg in Ward 1. The reports were of slow turnout both precincts were below 40 voters at 11:30. My next stop was ward 4 in Leominster, I followed a Prius … Continue reading Mr. DaTechguy visits the Polls on Primary day 2012
This morning I caught this ad from Crossroads GPS: How about that, an ad linking Former Obama Administration official Elizabeth Warren to the Occupods, I wonder who saw that coming October 15th 2011: I have a funny feeling that an elephant or two, maybe one say running for re-election for the US senate in Massachusetts … Continue reading The first “Occupy” ad airs in Massachusetts Senate Race
Yesterday's democratic debate in Lowell was not televised so my knowledge of it came from blogs on the left and right such as Left in Lowell (interesting move to do the live blog in the comments) and Right side of Lowell. As I read through the Q & A I see there is a huge … Continue reading Yesterday’s Democratic Senate debate, a gift to Scott Brown
As Roxeanne pointed out yesterday Peter Durant won YET AGAIN in the Worcester 6th district this time by practically a landslide, 56 votes! If I was a more cynical man I'd say this was the the deciding factor: With observers from the U.S. Department of Justice in Southbridge looking to ensure the integrity of the … Continue reading Peter Durant the final drop of the big red wave
You might recall the Worcester 6th race, the shenanigans we talked about concerning recounts, the judge ruling that a man who claimed his vote wasn't counted could vote after the fact to tie the election, the Democratic legislature instead of having a new head to head election allowing independents to cut down on the GOP … Continue reading Worcester 6th and Blatant democratic fraud
Well it took a lot of lawyers, cracked and broken election boxes, and some interesting handling of ballots during a recount but the Democratic machine managed to get the result they were looking for: A Worcester Superior Court judge is ordering a new election for a contested Massachusetts House seat after ruling the November contest … Continue reading The Democratic Machine still works Durant’s victory voided
My latest for the Examiner talks a bit about local Massachusetts republicans re-arming: Although the working class group assembled last evening makes a mockery of that meme, the problem as Connaughton pointed out was proving that to the public. Her solution, more local involvement. She like the Twin City Tea Party Forum a week ago … Continue reading Examiner: Massachusetts Tea Party Republicans re-arming for 2011 and beyond
...that might have made a difference if it was reported in October: A jobs commission ordered almost two years ago by Gov. Deval Patrick and the Legislature to find ways to create and maintain jobs in Massachusetts has never met, causing some to view the panel as a missed opportunity during a period of high … Continue reading Yet another post election story…
The Boston Globe reports that things are looking grim for Massachusetts: Massachusetts could lose more than $200 million in funding this year — and quite possibly similar amounts each year for the foreseeable future — as the incoming Republican congressional leadership and President Obama take aim at earmarked spending projects. At risk are a host … Continue reading The Globe discovers that Massachusetts has shot itself in the foot…AGAIN
If you looked at Deval Patrick's ads, they were all about Jobs, however did the message have some help: U.S. defense contractor Raytheon announced a series of layoffs Tuesday just days after Gov. Deval Patrick denied asking it to delay terminations until after the state elections. The announcement follows three other rounds of layoffs announced … Continue reading Good thing we elected Deval or otherwise layoffs would come, oh wait
Martin Soloman bluntly says aloud what I've been hearing only in whispers. Attached is a photo I took when a Neighbor to Neighbor organizer escorted a voter into the booth as an “interpreter” [See above]. Funny; the ballots were bi-lingual so I didn’t see the need for an interpreter. She was coaching voters to vote … Continue reading Voter Fraud in Worcester Ma.
When heading toward re-election pols tend to take the feelings of the voters back home a lot more seriously. In Maine for example Republicans swept statewide elections pretty solidly. It should have an interesting effect on Maine two liberal republicans and the day of their next race comes closer. In Massachusetts the clean sweep of … Continue reading Will Scott Brown become the Fishbait Miller of the Senate?
My latest for the examiner tell the story of a doomed band of brothers fighting a seemingly impossible fight: The twin city tea party filled the large event room, there was food, drink and frolic as members celebrated for hours their efforts of Election Day. A victory party seemed out of place. Just two days … Continue reading Examiner article The 300 Tea Partiers at the pass of Massachusetts
