Mass. voters on brink of overriding Dem
law allowing illegal immigrants driver’s licenses

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/13/2022 10:29:58 PM

Massachusetts voters will have a chance to repeal a law allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses. The bill was vetoed in May by Republican Governor Charlie Baker. But in another case of ruling against the will of the people, the veto didn’t stick. So strongly do Democrats in the state legislature feel about illegals voting that they went all in and overrode the veto. Nevertheless, the people will have the final say, as the ballot measure’s approval was announced on Friday. “It just shows how out of touch the Democratic Legislature is with the will of the people,” Massachusetts GOP chairman Jim Lyons told the Boston Herald.

Another problem with illegals getting drivers licenses is that they don't carry insurance. So when they plow into you on the roads or highways, you're stuck with trying to collect on your own insurance. Meaning your rates will go up. Oh, and by the way it allows the illegals to be registered to vote. It's about votes and nothing more.

Spread the rumor that illegals applying for a drivers license will be arrested and deported and the problem is solved. These people aren’t very smart, they’re just devious.

I'm not sure it actually makes a difference. Do you really think the lack of a license is going to stop illegals from driving? I understand the motivation behind the vote, but the reality of its effect is nil.

Having been in an accident recently with an uninsured illegal I can’t emphasize enough that you need uninsured/underinsured coverage on your policy. About time Massachusetts voters did something right.

many outsiders and even those within Massachusetts see only the demcommie line of propaganda in the Massachusetts media and think the whole state follows that kind of rubbish but in actuality there is a large segment of the population that is against this stuff but there is no media outlet for them to get their ideas and programs into the public view and as an addendum - Donald Trump is very popular in Massachusetts but Massachusetts is the East Coast California, politically and culturally, unfortunately

Shocking night vision footage shows the moment more than 500 migrants sneaked across the southern border into Texas - despite Kamala Harris claiming it was 'secure'. The jaw-dropping thermal imaging video showed sprawling lines of people queuing in Mexico before slowly making their way into Eagle Pass overnight. The three huge groups were spotted marching over rough terrain while being herded by what appeared to be a lesser number of guides. The footage is the latest damning indictment against the Biden administration's failed attempts to crack down on the number of migrant crossings -

The Biden administration is reportedly pushing federal law enforcement to exaggerate the threat from domestic terrorism and white supremacy as the White House uses such threats as political talking points. Current and former members of the FBI say that President Joe Biden’s administration is pushing the bureau to devote more resources than necessary toward combatting domestic terrorism, especially with racial components, according to The Washington Times. The FBI leadership’s “demand for [w]hite supremacy … vastly outstrips the supply of [w]hite supremacy,” one agent told the Times. “We have more people assigned to investigate [w]hite supremacists than we can actually find.”

Several Florida Democrats who are publicly expressing shock and outrage over Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) sending undocumented migrants to Martha’s Vineyard actually voted in favor of the state budget, which appropriates $12 million for a program to do just that. The governor signed the $109.9 billion “Freedom First” budget in June, which invests in education, law enforcement, and provides tax holidays, among other things. A document highlighting some of the biggest initiatives in the budget explicitly states that the budget “creates a $12 million program within the Florida Department of Transportation to facilitate the transport of unauthorized aliens out of Florida”:

King Charles and his siblings Anne, Andrew and Edward tonight mounted their touching final vigil for the Queen, before the late-monarch is laid to rest on Monday. As tearful mourners watched on, the Queen's four children stood guard of their mother's coffin for more than 10 minutes at Westminster Hall this evening. The siblings each guarded a side of the coffin, with Charles, dressed in a Navy Admiral uniform, standing at the head. It was their second, and final, vigil for the beloved-monarch. Known as the 'Vigil of the Children' - an honour dating back to the time of George V - it mirrors a previous event held earlier this week

President Joe Biden tooted his own horn in a rare broadcast TV interview about an agreement that averted a rail strike he said would have brought supply chains critical to the economy to a 'screeching halt.' This time he did so in an interview with '60 Minutes' set to air in full in prime time on Sunday – his first appearance on the show as president. The comments come after Biden staged a Rose Garden speech with rail management and labor to trumpet the deal. That event closely followed an appearance in the Oval Office for pool photographers where he praised the deal as a 'win' for management and labor.

Illegal immigrants who were flown in unannounced to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday are now being moved to a military base in Cape Cod. The 50 migrants have been put on buses by Gov. Charlie Baker to travel the 32 miles to Joint Base in Cape Cod (JBCC) just 48 hours after they landed in the billionaire’s enclave. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew in the immigrants from Venezuela on Wednesday, sparking a widespread cry of outrage from the liberal leaders of the small island in Massachusetts. It was declared a humanitarian emergency, with the island leaders responding in the same way as a hurricane.

The queue to see the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall reached a record-breaking 14 hours before being paused for 6 hours, the UK government said. Determined mourners braved the chilly weather conditions during the night in a desperate bid to pay their respects to Her Majesty one last time after her death at the age of 96. The landmark opened its doors to the general public on Wednesday and will remain open for 24 hours each day before closing at 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 19 — the day of Her Majesty’s state funeral.

We all remember Saddam Hussein’s feckless pitchman, “Baghdad Bob.” The country’s information minister (real name: Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf) made frequent television appearances, repeating the mantra that everything was going according to plan. His most memorable appearance came amidst the rubble of his capital city, where he continued to spew delusional nonsense. We expect such dissembling from dictatorships, which control the media and extinguish discordant voices. That’s what Vladimir Putin is doing right now, hoping to prevent the Russian public from learning his army was demolished by Ukrainian’s counteroffensives in Kharkiv (in the northeast) and Kherson (in the south).

His plan was revealed amid the establishment media’s uproar over two GOP governors’ public transport of illegal migrants to the Vice President’s House in Washington, DC, and to the elite island resort of Martha’s Vinyard, off Massachusetts.

It may be time to pass on gas. The more than 40 million households in the US who use a gas stove might want to consider an alternative. New findings have shown that gas stoves — even when turned off — may cause asthma in children and put adults at risk of cancer. Dr. Jonathan Levy, an environmental health professor at Boston University, claimed the stoves may pollute the air with nitrogen dioxide, which can cause lung damage. The pollutant, a “byproduct of fuel combustion,” is also the same that is produced on major highways, but since the kitchen is an enclosed space, it puts inhabitants at more risk.

The package will include more of the same types of ammunition and equipment that have helped Ukrainian forces beat back the Russian forces in portions of the east and south.

An army of more than 200 MAGA candidates ready to fight for Donald Trump's agenda is marching into November's midterm races, after a heated primary season that proved the ex-president remains, for the most part, the de facto leader of the Republican Party. Trump has played a heavy hand in the 2022 election cycle thus far, endorsing candidates both for Congress and state executive roles in races that normally do not get the national attention he's brought to them. He's also jetted around the country to campaign with their voters in his signature 'Make America Great Again' rallies, including a forthcoming appearance in Ohio on Saturday for Senate candidate JD Vance.
