    President Trump is barreling toward a showdown with Congress over his decision to pull back U.S. troops in northern Syria despite widespread opposition. The announcement, which caught leadership and traditional GOP allies flatfooted, sparked a wave of condemnation, with Republicans calling it a “disaster in the making,” a “catastrophic mistake” and a “terrible decision.” Lawmakers are already weighing how to respond to Trump’s decision, setting the stage for a high-profile clash with Trump as soon as Congress returns from a two-week break on Monday. “Congress must and will act to limit the catastrophic impact of this decision,” said Rep. Liz...

    On this weeks broadcast of NBCs This Week, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said President Donald Trumps 2016 proclamation that Trump could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue in New York City to be true. Murphy said, I think our only choice now is to take this to the American public. Ultimately, these members of the Senate want to get re-elected. As you have seen, public opinion shift very quickly. As you see, more Republicans going to the bunker-like that, and the president go deeper into trying to get more countries to interfere in our elections. I think public...

    Serhiy Leshchenko, the Ukrainian MP who leaked evidence of Paul Manaforts systematic corruption to The New York Times, kicking off the latest round of Trump-Russia scandals, is a former investigative journalist famed for his pedantic and forensic habits in parliament. . .Leshchenko and some of his journalist reformer friends, such as Mustafa Nayem, were brought into Ukraines parliament by President Petro Poroshenko on his winning parliamentary slate in 2014 as a way of showcasing his reformist credentials. Leshchenko has since become a fierce critic of Poroshenko, whose parliamentary faction he has never left. . .[Q:] Lets return to Paul Manafort....

    On Tuesday Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced impeachment investigations against President Donald Trump for allegedly putting pressure on Ukrainian President Zelensky to investigate the Biden Crime Family for laundering hundreds of thousands of dollars from Ukraine. The bogus accusations were based on hearsay from an anti-Trump whistleblower who supports a rival political opponent. On Wednesday the transcript of the call between President Trump and President Zelensky was released. By late Wednesday morning we all know the allegations were false. President Trump did not put pressure on the Ukrainian leader and did not even bring up the subject with him during...

    Earlier this month, during a bipartisan meeting in Kiev, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) delivered a pointed message to Ukraine's new president, Volodymyr Zelensky. While choosing his words carefully, Murphy made clear - by his own account - that Ukraine currently enjoyed bipartisan support for its U.S. aid but that could be jeopardized if the new president acquiesced to requests by President Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to investigate past corruption allegations involving Americans, including former Vice President Joe Biden's family. ... The implied message did not require an interpreter for Zelensky to understand: Investigate the Ukraine dealings of Joe Biden and...

    Two U.S. senators say that they were denied visas as part of an official delegation to Russia for talks with their counterparts in the country's parliament. Amid tensions over arms control, human rights, and Russian aggression in Ukraine, Venezuela, and Syria, it's a sign of the frayed ties between Washington and Moscow, despite President Donald Trump's consistent calls for better relations with President Vladimir Putin's government -- including its readmission to the G-7. Republican Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Democrat Chris Murphy of Connecticut were scheduled to leave on their trip next week, according to aides, with stops in Ukraine,...

    U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., has unfollowed President Donald Trump on Twitter in the wake of attacks on Democratic congress members. Im unfollowing the President of the United States today on Twitter, because his feed is the most hate-filled, racist, and demeaning of the 200+ I follow, and it regularly ruins my day to read it, Murphy tweeted Sunday morning. So Im just going to stop. I cant believe I just typed that. Democrats have condemned several of the presidents recent tweets as racist. Two weeks ago, Trump tweeted four Democratic congresswomen of color should go back (to) the...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) claims the 1994 assault weapons ban prevented massacres but the Department of Justices National Institute of Justice (NIJ) reported the ban could not be credited with any reduction in crime. Murphys claim was part of a larger attack on President Trump, wherein the Connecticut Senator was trying to place blame for mass shootings at Trumps feet. Murphy tweeted:

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) returned from a Middle East tour saying that he saw no alternative to the Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict other than the two-state solution, JTA reported Wednesday. I would say I dont know what the alternative is other than a two-state solution, Romney was quoted as having said on Tuesday in his first meeting with reporters since returning from the region last week. No one articulated to us anywhere in the region an idea or a proposal for something other than a two-state solution, added Romney, who has just assumed the chairmanship of the Middle East subcommittee in...

    A heavyweight right-wing financier has thrown in with a left-right coalition to end the U.S. militarys involvement in the Saudi-led war on Yemen, one of the worlds most devastating humanitarian catastrophes, The Daily Beast has learned. The Charles Koch Institute, bearing the brand of one of the most influential sources of conservative political money, is backing an effort spearheaded by progressive California Democrat Ro Khanna to demand either an end to non-counterterrorism aid to the Yemen war or a direct congressional vote authorizing it. Multiple congressional and allied sources told The Daily Beast they plan to bring their resolution to...

    Republican, maverick, Matthew Cory has been declared the winner of the Republican U.S. Senate primary in the great state of Connecticut, this evening. He will face, the boring useless, incompetent, do nothing, Trump hating, Democrat, Chris Murphy, who has been declared a "safe seat" for the Democrat Party. Mr. Cory is a blue collar worker, a building window washer and owner of a local bar. He has little money or funds for campaigning. Thus far, he has held local, small, little house meetings as best he could. But...I think folks in Connecticut have taken heed of this talented, self-taught, human...

    Motto: Free speech is a bourgeois prejudice. -Lenin After Alex Jones website was banned on Monday via a coordinated action from YouTube, Facebook and other platforms, Democrats are now calling for even more censorship. Shocking, who wouldve thought, right? Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, is looking to impose chicom style internet censorship over websites who incidentally are not agreeing with his partys political platform. Again, very shocking indeed. This is what the modern Democratic party has to offer to its constituency, after losing a presidential election and looking ahead for the 2018 midterms: Chinese styled censorship.

    Democrats are awash in collective outrage as they suddenly awaken to how illegal immigrants families, to include unaccompanied minor children, have been treated while in custody. At least, until they realized that what they were seeing took place under President Barack Obama, not President Donald Trump, and then the “Delete” key was put to work. The umbrage flowing following a CNN report that immigration officials lost track of 1,500 unaccompanied immigrant children, as seen from Sen. Chris Murphy, D-CT.

    President Donald Trump embraced Sen. Joe Manchins (D-WV) gun control bill but rejected Rep. Steve Scalises (R-LA) push for national reciprocity during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers Wednesday afternoon. After listening to Sen Chris Murphy (D-CT), Trump looked at toward the end of the table and asked Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) to detail their gun control bill. The Manchin/Toomey gun control bill is the same universal background check legislation supported by Barack Obama in the wake of the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School. It the very bill that was defeated in the Democrat-controlled...

    The gun-control vultures, the dung beetles, will inevitably descend over any mass shooting. But Dem Sen. Chris Murphy might have plumbed a despicable new low when it comes to exploiting a tragedy. Speaking with Chris Hayes on MSNBC this evening, Murphy said that those who oppose his gun-control views are guilty of the endorsement of these murders and of having greenlighted the killings. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    This is the nature of gun politics now, folks. Every time there’s a mass shooting, the anti-gun Left simply cannot hold their tongues. We should mourn the victims, pray for the families, and wait for the authorities to conduct their investigation. That’s not allowed.  After the horrific shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) took to the Senate floor today to lecture his colleagues. Sen. @ChrisMurphyCT on Parkland, Florida School Shooting: "This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America, this epidemic of mass slaughter, this scourge of school shooting after...

    NBC News and MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heilemann on Tuesday asked Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) if he thought House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) had "been compromised by the Russians." The question comes following a Monday vote in the House Intelligence Committee to make a controversial Republican-crafted memo public. The memo purports to show bias within the FBI and the Department of Justice. "Congressman, Im going to ask you a question I asked Sen. [Chris] Murphy (D-Conn.) a little earlier. Its an impolitic question and one that would have seemed absurd in almost any other circumstance," said Heilemann,...

  • Chris Murphy: Federal Assault Weapons Ban Would Have Prevented Vegas Attack

    10/14/2017 6:37:49 AM PDT · by rktman · 52 replies ^ | 10/13/2017 | AWR Hawkins
    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) says the federal assault weapons ban that lapsed in 2004 would have prevented the Las Vegas attack, had that ban still been in force today. This claim shows a deep misunderstanding of the assault weapons ban, which did not ban the possession or purchase of assault weapons. Rather, it limited importation and mandated types that could be manufactured in the U.S., thus driving up prices. For a man of means like Stephen Paddock, paying the higher price for an assault weapon would have been no problem.
