Tight Massachusetts U.S. Senate race has national implications
See articles below:
1. Fate of Barack Obama's agenda in America rests on Jan. 19 Massachusetts U.S. Senate election. But National Republican Party not interested!
Honoring "gay marriage". Martha Coakley congratulates the homosexual community on 5 years of "gay marriage" in Massachusetts at public event last May, as MassEquality president Scott Gortikov (right) and Rep. Carl Sciortino (D-Sodom and Gomorrah) look on.
Enthusiastic support of radical homosexual / transgender agenda
Militantly pro-homosexual "marriage". Last year, as Mass. Attorney General, she filed a lawsuit against the federal government to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)!
Raises money for the homosexual lobby. For example, in May, 2007 Coakley was the keynote speaker at the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association annual fundraising dinner. In August, 2007 she was the "marquee special guest" at the Massachusetts Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus (lobbyists) annual fundraiser.
Endorsed by radical homosexual organizations MassEquality and the Mass. Transgender Political Coalition, which cites Coakley's "strong commitment to the LGBT community." Coakley has promised to push the homosexual and transgender agenda as a US Senator.
Gave a public congratulatory speech at MassEquality event to celebrate five years of same-sex "marriage" in Massachusetts (see photo above).
Personally went to the State House to testify in favor of passing the radical Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes Bill (H1728) at public hearing in July. Coakley is a huge supporter of so-called "transgender rights" - probably more so than Barney Frank! (photo below)

Putting radical politics before safety of your children
Refused to investigate horrendous Fistgate incident where gay activists were teaching children how to engage in homosexual sex. Immediately after the "Fistgate" conference, Scott Whiteman hand-delivered an affidavit of the incident to Coakley, then Middlesex County District Attorney. Her office refused to respond in any way despite repeated requests.
Refused to investigate the lack of CORI (criminal record) checks on homosexual activists working with public schoolchildren, which is required with anyone working with children in Massachusetts - but homosexual activists ignore that. "I think I know your agenda," Coakley's spokesman told us. "You seem to have a problem with gay people. The state's Attorney General is not going to investigate this." (See our report)
In the infamous Amirault "Fells Acres Day Care" case, Coakley did her best to keep a clearly innocent man in prison to advance her political career as a "hard-nosed prosecutor." It is known nationally as a horrible miscarriage of justice. See Ann Coulter's column on this.
Has received national condemnation for lax handling of 2005 child rape case. Somerville police officer raped his 23-month-old neice with metal object. Coakley released him with no bail and did almost nothing. Later another prosecutor took the case and the man received 2 life terms. Read more here.
Coakley is completely in bed (metaphorically speaking) with the despised anti-family public sector unions, including the teachers union and most notably the SEIU, which carries water for her and vise versa. (Photo below)
And we haven't even touched issues such as Coakley's caving in to the corrupt Big Dig contractors and settling with them rather than go to trial, a decision that has been widely criticized by liberals and conservatives alike.
She refuses to debate her Republican opponent, Scott Brown, one-on-one. She requires that the minor third-party Libertarian candidate for Senate also be part of the debate. Interestingly, in 2006 when she ran for Attorney General, Coakley refused to debate at all.
But suffice it to say that Martha Coakley in the US Senate would be a nightmare not only for Massachusetts but for all of America.

We really want to like Scott Brown. But he's making it difficult. Like John McCain, Brown's best asset is the fact that he's running against the worst Democrat ever.
As this race gets tighter Brown seems to be succumbing to the idea that you'll pick up even more votes if you just move more to the left. Become a moderate and more people will like you!
Of course, it helps that most Massachusetts conservatives -- unlike the Left -- are not very principled and will easily support "the lesser of two evils" rather than demand any kind of ideological fortitude. (Too many of us haven't learned that you generally get what you deserve.)
Grilling at the Boston Herald editorial office
On Tuesday, Scott Brown met with the Boston Herald editorial staff (see below). And the results weren't particularly pretty. (Note: The Herald masquerades as a "conservative" paper, but in fact most of their staff could be easily intermixed with the Boston Globe. Maybe he was trying to impress them.)
Just the kind of headline we're not thrilled to see.
First of all, Brown tried to make it clear that he WOULDN'T be an automatic Republican vote in the US Senate, even on contentious issue.
Here's what the Herald reporter wrote about what Brown sees as his role in the US Senate:
[NOTE: Actually, the Republican party gave Brown a HUGE amount of help in the election to win his current state Senate seat. It was a special election and he was up against a well-supported Democrat in a Democrat district.]
And what about Brown and the "social issues"? As their left-wing columnist Margery Eagan wrote in her Wednesday column:
Eagan opined that Brown has become Bill Weld (former Republican governor and noted RINO). Let's hope the election comes quickly, before Brown morphs into a Republican Barney Frank.
Right. Just what we need.
That having been said, here's why Brown is picking up steam: Read Howie Carr's column in today's Herald, "Feeling blue? Take a second look at Scott Brown"
