  • Trump's Headed for a Major Victory on Election Night (it's killing them!)

    10/28/2022 3:30:52 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 56 replies ^ | 10/28/22 | Katherine Fung
    Former President Donald Trump's Senate endorsement record is headed for a stellar election night with 10 days until the midterms. Of the 22 Republican candidates that Trump has endorsed for the Senate, only two are currently at risk of losing their races, according to a Newsweek analysis. The two Trump-backed Republicans who are projected to lose their contests as of Friday are Kelly Tshibaka, who is running in Alaska's ranked-choice voting system against incumbent Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, and Leora Levy, who is running in Connecticut against incumbent Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal.

    Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Friday accused Attorney General Merrick Garland of ‘blocking’ Special Counsel John Durham from bringing charges against officials implicated in the Russiagate scandal. 55 sec video “Something else going on with Durham,” Nunes said. “He has put systematically the FBI on trial here. He has showed us that there were so many people that were not just working for the Clinton campaign and the DNC. They also happen to be working for the FBI or later after the fact. They start to work for the FBI when they know that they’re actually liars…...

    Leora Levy, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Connecticut, is closing the gap and is nearly tied with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D), according to the Connecticut Examiner’s latest poll. The poll found that Blumenthal has a narrow lead over Levy, at 49 percent, compared to Levy’s 44 percent. An additional seven percent of Connecticut voters remain undecided with just over three weeks until midterm elections.

    CT Examiner ^ | 10/15/22 | Gregory Stroud
    en after decades-high inflation, pandemic, and the overturning of Roe v. Wade, a new poll commissioned by CT Examiner suggests a close race for governor in Connecticut that mirrors the results four years ago between Democrat Ned Lamont and Republican Bob Stefanowski. In a three-way contest, Gov. Ned Lamont leads Bob Stefanowski 46% to 40%, with 5% opting for Independent Party candidate Rob Hotaling, and 10% undecided according to the nonpartisan poll released on Saturday. The CT Examiner/Fabrizio, Lee & Associates poll, conducted on Oct. 10-13, surveyed 1,200 likely voters and has a margin of error of +/- 2.8%. The...

  • CT’s Republican Party has taken on a new look: ‘The Trump effect was as visual in Connecticut almost as much as every other state’

    08/13/2022 7:50:49 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 33 replies ^ | 8/13/22 | Ken Dixon
    Donald Trump’s long reach, effectively anointing political newcomer Leora Levy to challenge second-term U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, has changed the face of the Connecticut Republican Party while insinuating MAGA grievances into the entire fall campaign for governor, top-of-the-ticket constitutional officers and the 187-seat General Assembly. Political scientists in the state said that while Trump’s late-campaign support in blue-state Connecticut was surprising, it’s always the party base that is most-energized for primaries and Levy channeled it to handily defeat party-endorsed Themis Klarides, the former state House minority leader who won the endorsement at the May conventions. “The Trump effect was as...

  • In Connecticut, 'Trump Won't Topple Themis Tuesday' (but Trump IS toppling Themis!)

    "I think that the endorsement is a net positive for Leora, but probably too little and too late," said one Connecticut GOP consultant who requested anonymity. "His endorsement came Thursday night, so too late for any direct mail pieces to hit before Tuesday. Sure, she's been texting and pumping it through social media, but I do not think it will saturate enough to make enough of a difference. "If this was a month ago, I'd be concerned if I was Themis, but at this point, I think it is probably too late." Another factor working in Klarides' favor is that...
  • Blumenthal: Freeh 'Bears a Lot Of Responsibility' for 9/11 Attacks

    Hillary Clinton's media surrogate Sidney Blumenthal charged Saturday that former FBI Director Louis Freeh "has a lot of responsibility to bear" for leaving America vulnerable to the 9/11 attacks. In an interview with WABC Radio's Monica Crowley, Blumenthal said he was "very close" to Mrs. Clinton during her tenure as first lady, adding, "I am still her friend." Moments later he launched into an attack on Freeh, who penned an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday excoriating the Clinton administration for dragging its feet on the Khobar Towers bombing investigation. "That story by Louie Freeh is...

    The Philadelphia protester who torched two police cars in 2020 – and was then tracked down by investigators through the website Etsy – was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for the attack. Lore-Elisabeth Blumenthal, 35, pleaded guilty in March to downgraded charges of obstructing, impeding and interfering with law enforcement officers for firebombing the two cop cars outside Philadelphia City Hall as protests raged in the city. At her sentencing hearing Thursday, Blumenthal said she was high on drugs and in the throes of addiction when she torched the cars, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. “My substance abuse left...

    Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said Tuesday on “MSNBC Reports” that after last week’s deadly shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX, “gun violence protection is going to be on the ballot” in the upcoming midterm elections. Blumenthal said, “This time, it really does feel different because of those shouts, ‘Do something.’ I’ve heard them for the last three days, four days that I’ve been in Connecticut, as I watched Memorial Day ceremonies in parades. There is something about how America has reacted and how shaken my colleagues have been. We’ve never before had five Democrats and five Republicans, as...

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) appeared in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, DC, on Tuesday to stump about abortion to a crowd of hundreds of abortion advocates in the wake of Politico releasing a draft court opinion showing a decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Blumenthal, like several of his colleagues from the far-left flank of the Democrat Party, reignited calls for nuking the filibuster so that Senate Democrats could vote in favor of pro-abortion legislation by way of a simple Senate majority.

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) is denying that he owns individual stocks even after he disclosed that his family’s investment fund bought millions of dollars worth of shares earlier this year. Blumenthal, one of the richest members of Congress, claimed last month that he does not own stocks. But Blumenthal disclosed to the Senate Ethics Committee earlier this month that an investment fund controlled by his wife’s family bought between $1 million and $2 million in shares of four tech companies on Jan. 31, days before he denied owning any stocks. Asked about the apparent contradiction on Tuesday, Blumenthal’s office...

    A watchdog group is calling for an ethics investigation into Sen. Richard Blumenthal's (D., Conn.) sale of shares of Robinhood, the brokerage company at the center of the "meme stock" speculation frenzy last year. The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) on Monday requested that the Senate Select Committee on Ethics probe Blumenthal's sale of Robinhood shares worth up to $2.5 million. Blumenthal, one of the wealthiest members of the Senate, failed to disclose the trades within the 45 days required under federal law, the Washington Free Beacon reported. "Blumenthal's stock trades raise conflict of interest concerns, and to...

    People don’t want outsiders reading their private messages —not their physical mail, not their texts, not their DMs, nothing. It’s a clear and obvious point, but one place it doesn’t seem to have reached is the U.S. Senate. A group of lawmakers led by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have re-introduced the EARN IT Act, an incredibly unpopular bill from 2020 that was dropped in the face of overwhelming opposition. Let’s be clear: the new EARN IT Act would pave the way for a massive new surveillance system, run by private companies, that would roll back...

    Guess what? There's no hiding it anymore. This is a communist takeover of the USA. I've been making this case three hours a day on my nationally syndicated radio show since the day Joe Biden took over as president. Well, the proof is in. Nothing proves my case like the story of Democratic United States Sen. Richard Blumenthal. You're not gonna believe this one. It's all out in the open now. A United States senator thought it was fine and dandy to publicly cavort with the communist enemies of America. Should that surprise you? It doesn't surprise me. I believe...

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Friday that, had he known that the awards ceremony in which he gave remarks last weekend was linked to the Communist Party, he would not have attended. He made an appearance at the Connecticut People's World Committee Amistad Awards on Saturday to give three people special recognition certificates from the U.S. Senate. The CPWC is an affiliate of the Communist Party USA and the Marxist People’s World news site. "My understanding was that this ceremony was strictly a labor event," Blumenthal told the Hartford Courant. "If I had known the details, I wouldn’t have gone. …...
