MassFiscal Update: "Baloney!" Says Bob DeLeo (And More!)

by: MassFiscal

Thu Oct 23, 2014 at 12:13:06 PM EDT

(What is baloney is the Bob DeLeo is not indicted - promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno)

The voter education efforts made by MassFiscal continue to garner headlines across Massachusetts!

First, as you can read in today's Lowell Sun, House Speaker Bob DeLeo thinks it's "baloney" to tell lawmakers' constituents how they vote.

Defending House Democrats whose voting records have come under attack, House Speaker Robert DeLeo on Wednesday dismissed recent mailings targeted at incumbents as "baloney" and voiced concerns about outside groups spending money in local races.

While not mentioning the tax-exempt organization by name, DeLeo directed criticism toward the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, an advocacy group headed by Republican State Committee member Rick Green.

Vieira Takes Democrat's Side against Right of Center SuperPAC

by: Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno

Thu Oct 23, 2014 at 09:38:46 AM EDT

If you are a Republican legislator and a group of peopel decide to help you increase your numbers in the state legislature by spending a quarter of a million dollars  send mail, what's the last thing you do?  Yeah cross them.  But that's what David Vieira just did.

The Jobs First Independent Expenditure PAC has been hitting Democrats on their records.  You may remember from the Boston Herald that Representative Brian Mannal was featured in a story entitiled, "Pol Aiding Sex Cons Got Defense Cash".

A freshman state legislator now championing a bill to help convicted sex offenders get taxpayer-funded lawyers has earned more than $139,000 from the state's public defender coffers in the past several years, according to state records.

When the group sent a mailer based on that Herald piece, Mannal filed a criminal complaint against the group.  That's right, for highlighting his record, Mannal filed a criminal complaint.  You can read about it at the Cape Cod Times.

In his most aggressive response yet against a barrage of negative mailers, state Rep. Brian Mannal filed an application for a criminal complaint in Barnstable District Court on Tuesday alleging that the Jobs First Independent Expenditure Political Action Committee violated state law with "false and misleading attack ads" criticizing legislation he filed last year concerning sex offenders.

Flanked outside the courthouse by his family and a fellow Cape legislator, Mannal, D-Centerville, said the political action committee's mailer maliciously misconstrued a bill he filed requiring the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board to notify sex offenders of the right to a hearing and court-appointed attorney when applying for reclassification or early termination of sex offender status. State law currently makes taxpayer-funded, court-appointed counsel available to sex offenders who cannot afford a lawyer.

The article goes on to personally blame the treasurer Melissa Ward Lucas of the PAC for defaming Mannal, even though he is a public figure and everything on the mailer was sourced.

How does Republican State Representative Vieira fit in? He took Mannal's side against the truth telling PAC.

"Regardless of party, the nature of that (mailer) was despicable and it should have no place in politics," said Vieira. "That's why people don't show up to vote and don't have a lot of confidence in government. It's because of this type of crap."

Vieira should hope that the group doesn't have a long memory and that he doesn't want to get involved in 2016 primaries.  Red Mass Group has learned that this PAC and associated 501(c)4 are not going away any time soon.

Judge tosses Coakley effort to help fundraiser

by: Bravehaht

Wed Oct 22, 2014 at 19:40:13 PM EDT

(Funny how she hasn't gone after sub-prime banker Deval Patrick - promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno)

Remember that lawsuit Martha Coakley brought against Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, which would have benefitted a key campaign fundraiser?  It got Coakley all sorts of headlines when she filed it in June, making her look tough on the big banks and dedicated to the little guy.  Of course, the campaign fundraiser was well-paid to help the little guy, $590,000 a year. Also, the little guy had to pay a price adjustment of 25% to help fund such expense, drawing criticism from housing advocates.

Well, now it seems that the case was garbage, because a federal court judge threw it out today.  The judge is Clinton appointee (and Oxford roommate) Richard Stearns, not exactly a strict constructionist conservative.  The Globe has a brief story, with more to follow, I'm sure.

It's bad enough that the Attorney General failed to disclose her close connection to a prime beneficiary of the lawsuit.  It's worse that she brought a meritless case to benefit a friend and fundraiser.  

Elections matter.  We can have more of these antics, amplified by the power of the corner office.  All we have to do is nothing.

Deadbeat Dad Democrat; State Senate candidate Dylan Hayre gives 15K to campaign, fails to pay chil

by: massgop

Wed Oct 22, 2014 at 15:53:09 PM EDT

For the second time in two years, Dylan Hayre, State Senate Candidate for the Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex District, has had a lien placed on him for failure to pay child support for his young child.

Most recently, a Department of Revenue, Child Support Division lien was placed on September 2, 2014, for failure to pay $1,634.  Just two weeks earlier, according to campaign finance records, Hayre had loaned his campaign $5,000, for a total of $15,000 he has given his campaign this year.

This is not the first time Mr. Hayre has had a child support lien.  In 2012, the Department of Revenue filed for $4,035.13.  It was not released until October 28, 2013, roughly four months after Hayre launched his candidacy for State Senate.

Hayre has a spotty record of paying child support since his initial court order of $200 per week in 2011.  Citing a job loss, his payments dropped to just $20 per week in 2012.  Had he then filed for unemployment, the weekly payments for his child would have risen by 380 percent.  But Hayre failed to file for several months, and only did so after a judge's order forced him. The delay cost his child's mother more than $600 in support.

"Mr. Hayre parades around leading people to believe that he is a great advocate for families, but the facts speak for themselves," said Rob Cunningham, Executive Director of the MassGOP.  "Hey listen, people can relate to being financially stretched and not paying bills on time; but it is the height of selfishness to give your campaign $15,000 while neglecting your child."

Remember Marcia Coakley in the good old days when.....

by: Vote3rdpartynow

Wed Oct 15, 2014 at 12:51:58 PM EDT

( - promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno)

her office used to prosecute day care operators and charge them with rape when some 2 year olds made claims that the day care workers had 'magic wands' and 'secret rooms' where they were forced to drink urine?  Now of course, there were obviously no magic wands - because magic wands do not exist.  And there were no secret rooms, because they didn't exist either.  But it never stopped Marcia Coakley from keeping an entire family in jail for what was, in at least one case, the 'rest of their lives'.  

I remember the good old days when two of the people, Cheryl and Violet were freed on successful appeal, only to have the state supreme court send them back to prison.  Violet later died in prison waiting for justice.

The landmark case now known as the 'Fells Acre Day Care' case become legendary not for a Prosecutor's sharp skills and keen insights, but because the interrogators led the children toward false accusations, misleading testimony and the wrongful accusation of now seemingly innocent people.  It should be noted that Marcia Coakley did NOT prosecute the case, but she did personally prevent every effort to have them freed when it was realized the Amiraults were likely not guilty of anything other than local hysteria about day care centers..

Marcia lobbied to keep the innocent people in jail.  She lobbied to refuse them a retrial.  she lobbied to refuse them justice.  She lobbied to allow bogus testimony to be admitted in court.  She lobbied for everything except what is now known to be the truth - innocence.  

Marcia Coakley and Cheryl Amirault eventually reached an agreement by which Cheryl would be released from prison with 'time served', but promising never to make a nickel of profit from the case.  Marcia Coakley did not have to make such a promise and is now a candidate for the highest office in the state.  

More about Marcia Coakley and Fells Acres Day Care below:

Martha Coakley and Modern Witch Hunting

Involvement in Amirault Case makes Martha Coakley Unfit ...

Now this whole mess is not to be confused with Marcia Coakley's other dirty legal work about a trailer park murder in Ayer, Massachusetts.  The guy she convicted in that one was not guilty either, but alas it became the subject of a Hillary Swank movie named 'Conviction'.

And remember the good old days when Marcia Coakley had a Democratic operative, thought to be Michael Meehan from Blue Line Strategic communications shove a reporter for the Weekly Standard to the ground?

What will state government be like under Marcia Coakley?  A woman blind to so many truths.  A woman so selfishly determined to make a name for herself that she puts innocent people in jail and distorts the testimony of children for her own advancement.  She uses people.  She manipulates people.  she sends people to jail forever to die, and doesn't care when it is found out that she was wrong.

Will you Stand with Caroline Colarusso against Obama Supporter Bill Weld?

by: Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno

Fri Oct 10, 2014 at 14:08:19 PM EDT

Yesterday, Barack Obama supporter and former Governor Bil Weld (?-MA/NY/Mexico) endorsed a Democrat in a winnable open seat in metro north.  

Caroline Colarusso, a solid conservative who once told me should would vote against the Democratic budget like Lyons and Lombardo, is running in the 31st Middlesex District to replace the ultra moonbat Jason Lewis, who is now a State Senator. She is a solid conservative.  

That's why what Bill Weld did yesterday was so egregious, especially since everyone has been - to this point - playing well as a team.  

Democrat Michael Day, a candidate for state representative for the 31st Middlesex District, has been endorsed by former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld.

"I am pleased to endorse my good friend Michael Day for State Representative," Weld said in a campaign news release. "I know Mike's entire family, and they are quality all the way. He is the sort of person who will work effectively across party lines in the State House, which is a good way to get things done."
Weld was governor from 1991 to 1997.

The 31st Middlesex District covers Stoneham and Winchester. Day is running against Republican Caroline Colarusso. Both are from Stoneham.

Weld, knows Day because they are both lobbyists.  Of course we could all sit here and kvetch about how awful Bill Weld is to have done this... Or....

We could all meet his endorsement by sending Caroline a few dollars.  I just donated $50.00 to Caroline's campaign via her Piryx Account, which is also embedded after the jump.

This district is winnable.  Scott Brown won the district in 2010 by 11 points, and Charlie Baker won the district by 7 points.  It is an R+5 District.  Caroline needs your help to bring it home.

Hot Congressional Race in Massachusetts, and Not the One You Think.

by: Paul R. Ferro

Tue Oct 07, 2014 at 00:14:21 AM EDT

(Bumped.  WGBH/Emerson Poll has Chapman up by 5%.  Reports say NRCC is polling district. Could they be about to shift resources? - promoted by Paul R. Ferro)

While all the focus and attention of many Republicans to win  a congressional seat in Massachusetts for the first time since 1994 have focused North on the Tisei-Tierney...uh, sorry...Moulton race in the 6th Congressional District, perhaps it's time more GOP eyes turned South for our best hope.  As the Boston Globe Reports something's brewing in the 9th Congressional District:

For months, political handicappers have been following one Congressional race in Massachusetts as the marquee contest, the North Shore campaign that has already toppled the incumbent and now pits Republican Richard Tisei against Democrat Seth Moulton.

Increasingly, however, strategists in both parties are focusing attention on a previously quiet race in the 9th District of southeastern Massachusetts, where little-known Republican attorney John Chapman is waging a tightening fight against two-term incumbent Democrat William Keating.

Keating visited Democratic lobbying firms in Boston last week "letting people know that he needs help," his campaign co-chair said, and some Republican strategists have quietly urged the party to shift resources from Tisei and toward Chapman.

"I think people are starting to have a greater understanding of the dynamics at play in the 9th, and they're more beneficial than those in the [Tisei-Moulton race], and for that reason they're urging people to take another look at the 9th," said David Tamasi, a Washington-based GOP lobbyist and fundraiser with Cape Cod ties.

In 2013, when Gabe Gomez was losing statewide by 10%, he won the 9th Congressional by 7% (perhaps if he hadn't self-immolated after, he could have run for the seat himself!).  In 2012, when Scott Brown was losing state-wide by 8%, he won the 9th by 1%.  So the voters, and more importantly, the votes, are there for a Chapman victory.

Has Moulton's Primary victory taken the wind out of Tisei's sail, or is he just riding a temporary headwind?  Should the NRCC and RNC Look South to the 9th Congressional district, were, in it's prior configuration, they invested heavily in 2010?  Or should they be bold and Invest in Both?

The wheels are coming off the Democrat wagon across the country, even here in Massachusetts

John Miller launches first television Ad

by: Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno

Wed Oct 08, 2014 at 08:25:04 AM EDT

Today, John Miller released his first T.V. ad of the general election entitled "A Fresh Approach." The ad highlights Miller's experience as a nationally recognized lawyer and his commitment to being an independent, non-political Attorney General.

"From the very beginning our campaign's focus has been about bringing a fresh, non-political approach to the Attorney General's Office," said John Miller. "For too long, politics and positioning for the next job has dominated the Attorney General's Office. That ends when I am elected in November. To me, AG means Attorney General, not aspiring governor.

Miller continued, "As Attorney General I will relentlessly pursue corruption, fraud and abuse; fight crime with 21st century technology; and protect the civil rights of all Massachusetts citizens.  Most importantly, I will bring a fresh, professional approach to the Attorney General's office."

Ebola not a threat - then why did John Kerry buy 160,000 hazmat suits?

by: Vote3rdpartynow

Sat Oct 04, 2014 at 12:09:29 PM EDT

(A good question - promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno)

One could assume that the Federal government was, and perhaps remains, unprepared for an outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus.  The feds did not make any timely closure of borders in order to prevent the travel of people from Ebola troubled areas of the globe into the United States.  But then again......

An announcement from a company named Lakeland Industries came out about 3 weeks ago (September 12th) telling the public that the federal government had already placed a bid for 160,000 hazmat suits.

"Lakeland stands ready to join the fight against the spread of Ebola," said Christopher J. Ryan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lakeland Industries.  "We understand the difficulty of getting appropriate products through a procurement system that in times of crisis favors availability over specification, and we hope our added capacity will help alleviate that problem.  With the U.S. State Department alone putting out a bid for 160,000 suits, we encourage all protective apparel companies to increase their manufacturing capacity for sealed seam garments so that our industry can do its part in addressing this threat to global health.

So here is the timeline folks, on September 7th The Hill reports that Obama believes Ebola is not a short term worry for US citizens.  Yet, less than one week later Lakeland Industries had already received an order from the federal government for 160,000 hazmat suits.  Is it a problem or not?

Oh V3PN those suits were probably for the people the feds were sending over to help with Ebola.  Perhaps 3,000 to 5,000 suits were for that reason because that is the number of people the feds are sending.  But who would the other 155,000 suits be for?  

160,000 hazmat suits are a lot of hazmat suits.  How big a problem does the federal government think this will be?  And why is it buying hazmat suits and then telling people 'Nothing to worry about here folks, go back to watching Chelsea Clinton have her baby'.  

On August 6th Lakeland Industries stock was trading at $6.50, now it is at $8.70 per share.  Don't think for one minute that Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren haven't already bought a few shares in order to insulate themselves a bit more from the working class stiffs that they represent..

Yesterday a bunch of Democratic "consultants." or should I say high powered lobbyist held a meeting to advise Martha on her faltering campaign.  The meeting was held at Mintz Levin home to lobbying powerhouse ML Strategies.  Also attending were lobbyists Chuck Campion, Susan Tracy, Dan Cence, Connor Yunitz, and David Guarino, among others. These lobbyist combined lobby on every major policy issue that will face our next Governor. Martha Coakley has a lot of gall to run an add to say that she is opposed by the Beacon Hill insiders.

BHI: Institute's work cited in push for GOP reform agenda; Dems like us too!

by: Beacon Hill Institute

Fri Oct 03, 2014 at 11:24:11 AM EDT


We are pleased to learn that Christian Whiton over at Fox News has thought one of our long-standing research agenda items (reforming the Davis Bacon Act and prevailing wages in general) was a good enough of an idea to place in any New Contract with America that the GOP might want to present to the American public up to November. In the context of rebuilding our infrastructure (an issue close to home) and increasing our competitiveness, Whiton writes:

Americans waste an average of 38 hours per year in traffic jams according to researchers at Texas A&M. Most U.S. airports are also in terrible shape. Antiquated laws and regulations that needlessly elevate the cost of new infrastructure are to blame. The worst offender is the Davis-Bacon law. Originally passed in part to suppress black labor, the law today is used by unions to eliminate the cost advantages of their non-union competitors. A study by the Beacon Hill Institute estimated that Davis-Bacon requirements increase the cost of infrastructure-related labor by 22% over the market rate. The law should go.


Meanwhile, there are those partisans who mistakenly believe that BHI occupies some "conservative ghetto" in the world of Massachusetts public policy. The usual practice at BHI is that we always consider the source and find that zeal gets the best of them.

Yet Massachsuetts Democrats know BHI does a good job too. The Chairman of the state Democratic Party, Senator Thomas McGee is confident enough to cite our work as quickly as any Republican, particularly in the lead up to a big gubernatorial race. 

The sentiment carries over to state Democratic Party as a whole when it comes to BHI's State Competitiveness Index which usually finds the Bay State at the top according to a variety of indicators of economic growth that we've assembled since 2001. (We guess our friends at the Democratic Party are using our index since most are not so favorable.) 


A friendly reminder to Chairman McGee, MA was also on top when a Republican occupied the corner office on Beacon Hill.

Deval Patrick (D) gets an F from the Cato Institute

by: Karl Marx

Thu Oct 02, 2014 at 12:03:17 PM EDT

- promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno

From the report entitled Fiscal Policy Report Card on America's Governors 2014

"Governor Patrick's low score results mainly from his record of proposed and enacted tax increases. In 2012 he proposed higher taxes on cigarettes and corporations. In 2013 he signed into law increases in sales taxes, cigarette taxes, and gas taxes. The cigarette tax was increased by $1 per pack. The same year, he proposed a large income tax increase, which would have raised the individual rate from 5.25 to 6.25 percent. The plan would have reduced the sales tax, but would have been a large tax increase overall. Luckily for Massachusetts taxpayers, the plan did not pass. In 2014 Patrick proposed higher taxes on corporations and applying the sales tax to candy and soda."

The embattled Kansas governor Republican Sam Brownback received an "A". Unfortunately the media is playing up his political troubles, repeating a left wing talking point about the evils of tax cuts.

In Massachusetts few will really care since the state is "doing alright" economically or so it seems.

'Vote for your life'

by: Vote3rdpartynow

Thu Oct 02, 2014 at 08:53:09 AM EDT

( - promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno)

You have heard the expression 'Run for your life'?  Well now we need to hear someone say 'Vote for your life'.  

Never has it been so obvious the destructive possibilities of picking government officials that are not qualified.  As we speak there are multiple deadly viruses and illnesses spreading across the country with little or no concern by public officials.  To hear this week that a man in Dallas Texas has not only contracted the deadly Ebola Virus, but was allowed to leave a hospital and socialize among children that may pass it on to a number of public schools is horrifying.  We were told, by a seemingly uninformed President that there is nothing to worry about.  'We got this'.  Even Mike Barnicle, perhaps the President's strongest supporter has now come to question his skills at handling difficult situations.  The net result is that more Americans WILL die.  That is a fact.  

Furthermore, the same US President Barack Obama seemed so uninterested in the growth and development of ISIS/ISIL that he was incensed at being pulled off the golf course and labeled them JayVee.  Again, he tells us there is nothing to worry about.  'We got this'.  Now ISIS is making direct threats to the US homeland and laughing in our faces.  The net result is that more Americans WILL die.  That is a fact.

Our economy is in shambles, and no matter how hard the President twists the numbers the truth is that there are more Americans suffering with the Obama economy that can be imagined.  Healthcare is in a chaotic frenzy with millions uninsured who formerly had insurance.  As many as 5 million Americans have left the job market giving up on the American dream.  Seniors are forced out of retirement to get part time jobs in order to supplement their dwindling income.  College students who spent fortunes on education are lucky to find jobs at fast food restaurants.  it is insulting to them and sad for the American people.

Our foreign policy seems to be a patchwork of misguided attempts to save face.  We won't go to war - yet we are in war.  We won't commit boots on the ground, yet we have boots on the ground.  We hate Syria, yet we now support Syrian rebels.  What the hell is the world to think when we are lead by a man who formulates important policy only after 4 putting?  How can the world take us seriously?

Closer to home, we have a Governor Deval Patrick who terminates the employment of people who try and uphold the law against the Governor's own family.  'Register my brother-in-law as a sex offender and lose a job'.  Or how about Deval's inability to be concerned about children such that they are dying in the state's custody?  Or that drug labs are infested with criminals?  Or that the roads he promised to repair are crumbling and the schools he promised to improve are failing, or the property taxes he promise to lower are increasing?  Failure after failure after failure.  

Politics is important, and in this country we are blessed to be able to sustain a Democratic process that should result in competent leaders and efficient systems.  Yet, we end up with lax attitudes, self-righteous indignant people who neither care for the general public or are sickened at the sight of us.  Sadly, we see it and do nothing about it.

The price to be paid for the voting record of Americans is dead Americans.  Americans will die because party politics came before leadership.  Race came before leadership.  Diversity came before leadership.  Americans have died at the hands of terrorists who are more than happy to behead us in the name of Jihad.  Americans will die because Obama couldn't care less about Ebola because the issue conflicts with his view of Obamacare - how can a pandemic happen with Obamacare?  It doesn't jive with him..  How can children die when they are in state custody?  It doesn't jive with Deval Patrick either.  

The next time you vote, remember that your life may very well depend on it.  I honestly don;t care which party rules as long as we are not disregarded for political purposes.  I want government to take our lives seriously.  I want them to be as concerned about my welfare as with their own.

This past week was a perfect testimony to Barack Obama's attitude problem.  A wall-jumping intruder made it past security and into the White House.  A serious threat had the President been home.  Suddenly it gets Obama's attention.  'How dare he threaten the President's safety'?  Well every day there are millions of Americans living in border towns who face the very same threat.  Border jumping thugs with weapons and the intent to hurt people, yet Obama cares not.  He can't be bothered.  In fact, he uses the sad plight of these border crossers to sway political opinion in his favor.  You can bet that for the next several weeks the White House will be on high alert.  But there will not be a single person added to the payroll to help stop border crossers on the Mexico border.  The borders are porous not only to criminals and welfare cheats, but also to terrorists and disease.  Americans WILL die.

Time to 'Vote for your life'.
