    Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that X CEO Elon Musk had turned the platform into a “cesspool of hate speech and extremist incitement.” Anchor Kristen Welker said, “I want to get your reaction to Elon Musk endorsing an anti-Semitic post on this platform. The Musk post was condemned by the White House, as you know, large companies like Apple and Comcast, the parent company of NBC news have pulled advertising from the platform. What was your reaction and what is your concern when you see a post like that?”

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said Sunday that he is “concerned” about President Biden’s lackluster poll numbers after recent surveys show him trailing former President Trump in next year’s election. “I was concerned before these polls, and I’m concerned now,” Blumenthal said on CNN”s “State of the Union.” “These presidential races over the last couple of terms have been very tight. No one is going to have a runaway election here. It’s going to take a lot of hard work, concentration, resources.”
  • ‘Obama’s man in Africa’ under house arrest as popular coup rocks Gabon

    The Grayzone ^ | AUGUST 31, 2023 | Max Blumenthal
    Before his removal in a military coup, Gabon’s hopelessly corrupt President Ali Bongo was courted by Obama and feted from Washington to Davos. The US war on Libya which destabilized the region may not have succeeded without him. When a military junta arrested President Ali Bongo Ondimba on August 30, Gabon became the ninth African nation to depose its government through a military coup. As citizens of Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali did before them, crowds of Gabonese poured into the streets to celebrate the removal of a Western-backed leader whose family flaunted its lavish lifestyle while more than a...

    @MaxBlumenthal CNN went 2 hours today without showing any video of Gaza destruction, and did not include a single non-Jew in studio for 1.5 hours. The network made sure everyone in studio was a committed Zionist. Its coverage began with the ardently Zionist @jaketapper repeatedly branding the Hamas attacks of October 7 as "the greatest loss of life of the Jewish people since the Holocaust" – as though the Israeli soldiers who were killed inside military bases while maintaining the siege of Gaza had been defenseless prisoners in Birkenau. @WolfBlitzer, a former staff researcher for AIPAC, appeared next to give...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), a prominent Senate Republican defense hawk, warned Monday that a Russian nuclear attack against Ukraine would be viewed as an attack on NATO, even though Ukraine is not a member of the alliance. Graham delivered his warning after former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Russia would “have to” use nuclear weapons if Ukrainian forces threaten Russian territory. (snip) Graham and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) introduced a resolution in June stating that any use of tactical nuclear weapons by Russia, Belarus or their proxies that spreads radioactive contaminants into NATO territory would be viewed as an attack...
  • Graham, Blumenthal Introduce Resolution To Address Threat Of Russian Tactical Nukes

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) today introduced a resolution to respond to the Russian Federation delivering tactical nuclear weapons to the Republic of Belarus. This is the first time Russia has deployed nuclear warheads beyond its borders since the fall of the Soviet Union, and represents a serious threat to global security in the midst of the war in Ukraine. Graham and Blumenthal noted their resolution holds that any use of a tactical nuclear weapon by Russia, Belarus or their proxies, or the destruction of a nuclear facility that disperses radioactive contaminants into...

    Though federal judge Aileen Cannon was randomly chosen to preside over the trial of former President Trump on mishandling classified documents, many Democrats are not pleased. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill) pointed out that "she is a member of the right-wing extremist Federalist Society and was appointed to her current position by Trump when he was president. Her ruling that an independent arbiter should review the 13,000 government records seized from Trump's Mar-a-Lago was later overturned by a three-judge panel from the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. Her lack of trust in the integrity of the FBI and...
  • Blumenthal launches investigation into PGA-LIV golf merger

    The Senate Homeland Security Committee has launched an investigation into the surprise merger between the PGA Tour and its Saudi rival LIV Golf. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, sent a letter to LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman on Monday requesting all records relating to the agreement, including communications between the two organizations. LIV has until June 26 to respond to the records request. Democrats in Congress have for years scrutinized Saudi Arabia for its human rights abuses, in particular its role in the civil war in Yemen. The kingdom has sought to rehabilitate its...

    Multiple Connecticut delegates are responding to the news of former President Donald Trump's indictment. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said that "no person is above the law," and Trump should be punished because it doesn't matter how powerful a person is. "A grand jury has decided to charge former President Trump after an intensive investigation lasting many months. Our justice system has an obligation to pursue the facts and law wherever they lead. Former President Trump will have the same rights as any criminal defendant and the justice system will presume him innocent until proven guilty.” Representative Jim Himes (D-4th District) also...

    Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said that if former President Donald Trump were to pardon convicted January 6 rioters after re-election in 2024, his actions would warrant an impeachment process. Sen. Blumenthal told a CNN reporter on Thursday that a Trump pardon of the January 6 prisoners would be a betrayal of America’s trust.

    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.

    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.

    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...
