SORT BY Relevancy
Whither Massachusetts? We'll look at who'll be the new governor and what that means. Can the nwe governor create and drive aq platform and vision. Instead, will the stolid legislature creep along as it is wont?
This election was not about the big issues and pathfinding in the end. The visionaries and big-change sorts were cast aside by both parties and in the run from the indy candidates. Instead, the top spot came down to two predictible and status-quo types.
Will think about what needs to be done and if the new folk are up to the task.
We give oneWe'll last look at next week's general election, a bit national and a lot of Massachusetts. Polls and paper endorsements favor failed gubdernatorial candidate GOP Charlie Baker oer failed US Senate candidate Dem Martha Coakley. Neither is all that exciting to the eye or ear, but media types love the angle of each has blown a run at a big office before.
We'll kick around the insdious fantasy that serems to propel Republicans into the top ofice here. That is because a vast majortiy of elected officials are Dems, somehow putting a Republican in that office does, well, somethnkg substantive. That's crazy talk, but they love it here. Baker is seriously flawed. Yet many,including the editorial board of the largest paper, trip over themsleves in efforts to make excuses for him.
We may touch on why locals are loath to (asi n never) elect a woman governor and so far have only sent one woman to the US Senate.
We may surmise what a Baker or Coakley administration might do and not do.
THE COMUNISTS PULL AT YOUR HEARTSTRINGS THEN THEY EAT YOUR HEART OUT. THE GUY WHO LOST BIG TONIGHT WAS THE AFRO AMERICAN AND ALL THE AMERICAN CITIZENS ON THE BOTTOM BROKEN RUNG OF THE DEMOCRAT LADDER OF NO SUCCESS. TONIGHT THE COMMUNIST COMMANDER IN CHIEF PLAYED THE BIBLE CARD. HE MADE US FEEL GUILTY ABOUT THE LITTLE BABY BEING PULLED FROM IT'S MOTHERS ARMS BECAUSE SHE IS AN ILLEGAL. BUT HE OVERLOOKED THE 4700 CITIZEN BABIES THAT WERE PULLED FROM THEIR MOTHER'S WOMBS AND THROWN IN THE GARBAGE TODAY AND EVERY DAY..
THIS PRESIDENT LOOKS THE OTHER WAY WHEN CITIZEN BABIES ARE BEING DEPRIVED OF THEIR LLP. LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. BUT TONIGHT HE PLAYS ON YOUR HEART STRINGS FOR THE CAUSE OF MOTHER RUSSIA.
WATERED DOWN AMERICAN EDUCATION DESTROYED BY SEX TRAINING . DRUG TRAINING AND RAPE KITS WITH A BIG PORTION OF COMMUNIST IDEOLOGY. GRADUATES LOSERS IN HOCK TO THEIR PROFFESORS BOTTOM LINE. THIS PRESIDENT SAYS DUMB COLLEGE KIDS HAVE CREATED A NEED FOR IMPORTED GRADUATES WHO TOOK NO SEXUAL TRAINING ONLY COMPUTER SKILLS AND REALLY WANT A JOB. OFF THEY GO TO BUILD THE NEW USA WHILE OUR DUMMIES APPLY FOR JOBS AT STARBUCKS AND INDIAN TEA ROOMS.
HE HAS CREATED A HOLLYWOOD SET ECONOMY. HE HAS DESTROYED JOBS OF EVERY KIND INCLUDING THE MILITARY. AS HE GRANTS GRANTS TO FURTHER THE CAUSE OF COMMUNISM. CAPTAINS IN THE MILITARY ARE BEING LAID OFF AND GIVEN SEARGENTS PAY AS THEY ARE TOLD BE SURE TO TAKE YOUR CROSS WITH YOU. THREE TIMES TONIGHT HE INVOKED THE GOD HE HATES TO SELL HIS DIVIDE AND CONQUER PLAN. HE MENTIONED ILLEGAL INVADERS ARE WORKING THREE JOBS TO PAY NO TAXES. HE NEVER SAID AMERICANS WORK THREE JOBS AND ONE OF THOSE JOBS PAYS TAXES.
HE IS THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD AND WHEN AMERICA SEES HIM FOR WHAT HE REALLY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS FINISHED.
Move along, Republicans. There's not much to see in your primary on 9/9/ Dems, on the other hand, hie to the polls and come prepared with your choices. For the GOP, only the Governor slot is contested, and most statewide slots have no Republican offerings. For Democrats nearly every office is, most with three candidates.
Of course, we'll talk about the virtually certain Charlie Baker for team elephant and who is likely to go against him. Besides the Democrat, there'll be multiple independent candidates. Evan Falchuk is the outlier here; his new United Independent Party is not yet recognized by the commonwealth as a party.
Dems also have rousing battles for Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and Treasurer, as well as some further down-ballot offices. Check our archives here or at Left Ahead for interviews.
Hypocrisy on the Democrat side:
How can President Obama and other Democrats say they are Christians, followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ, and advocate for the act of homosexuality and lesbianism? Then turn and point fingers at republicans for being insensitive to the poor and needy.
Hypocrisy on the Republican side:
Why did Billy Graham scrubb the Mormon religion off his web site as a cult religion, so that he could endorse Mitt Romney for President? Why did Cardinal Dolan take the lead in criticizing Obamacare for forcing the Church to pay for abortions and contraceptives, when he was paying insurance for these services up to ten years before Obamacare?

Topic: “Middle of Nowhere: Iran and the Democrat Report on the CIA" w/ Mark Lijek
We're in the "Middle of Nowhere" again. What’s going on with Iran and their nuclear non-weapons program? Democrats in the U.S. Senate came out with a report on the CIA interrogation program last week. Why release this now? Don't we already know about this? We're going to talk about it. Call-in and tell us what you think at (347) 989-8743.
Tune-in, listen and learn, or be a putz…
We'll recap the Massachusetts party [primaries and risk humiliation predicitng the campaigns, then results for November's general. The previous day's preimary may settle all, or nearly all, Democratic contests. Now the fun begins.
The GOP pretty much sat out the primary with no contested races beyond Governor, only five statewide candidates, and mostly blank ballot lines. Dems in contrast had three battling for most slots.
Republicans play delusion cards. Dems far outnumber them (not really true, as over half the electorate does not enroll in any party), Republ;ican Governor/LG are essential to holding wildly lefty Dems in check (so-so, with many in both houses here fiscally conservative and hard sells on legislation). The GOP can't fill their tickets because they are at such political disadvantage (not so, as half our Governors have been Republican, the GOP has as much and often more campaign cash, they make little effort to convert the unenrolled to their party, and they have weak recruiting efforts for candidates for office).
We'll talk results and futures. We expect two months of big platform and policy distinctions. We'll predict how dirty the ads and claims will be and what should make the differences in the final.
Not what you would think about normally. When it comes down to it politics are basically a scrimmage. It only seems like it's that deep.
The mid-terms are upon us an Democrats may finally be paying for the devastation their policies have brought to America. With no successes to run on, Democrat incumbents being dragged down by their loyalty to Barack Obama are using the last option they have: the race card. This time, it seems a majority of Americans have heard it all before and see right through the cheap campaign tactics and are prepared to throw the bums out.
Does God want you to be a Democrat or Republican? Join us tonight at 8pm (www.blogtalkradio.com/hipolitix) to discuss where Christians should stand when it comes to political parties. Our guest will be Lisa Sharon Harper, Sojourners’ senior director of mobilizing. She has written extensively on tax reform, comprehensive immigration reform, health-care reform, poverty, racial justice, and transformational civic engagement for publications and blogs including The National Civic Review, God’s Politics blog, The Huffington Post, Urban Faith, Prism, and Slant33. Her first book, Evangelical Does Not Equal Republican…or Democrat, offers a power-packed look at the roots of evangelical faith, how evangelicals strayed so far from those roots, and what is bringing them back.
Yesterday's comments on the Michelle Kosilek case covered the basics. Today, the guest is Jennifer Levi, director of the Transgender Rights Project of Gay & esbian Advopcaes & Defenders. She was incredulous about the majority decision denying reassignment surgery.
We'll cover the implications not only for Kosilek but also for current or future incarcerated transgender inmates in Massachusetts. Levi may also give us some perspective on the next action, as in whether the case might move to the Supreme Court.
In today's podcast, we'll hear from my sister, Pauline Nassif, who travelled to two small villages, Zacapa and El Arco in Guatemala for the first time as a member of the Christ Community Church of Taunton, Massachusetts in November.
We'll find out about this church's mission, which has joined the international Christian organizations, Hope of Life International and World Help, to be part of "Total Village Transformation Program" and how their love and support are making a difference there.
