  • 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...

    Donald J. Trump barged into the Connecticut Republican primary Thursday night by endorsing Leora Levy for U.S. Senate in a phone call to an audience in Montville that included Levy’s two rivals, Themis Klarides and Peter Lumaj. “I’m giving tonight my complete and total endorsement to Leora Levy, and she’s going to go out and win this primary,” Trump said, his voice coming from Levy’s phone, amplified over a P.A. system. Levy and Lumaj are conservative Trump loyalists challenging Klarides, the convention-endorsed candidate and former state House Republican leader who has publicly acknowledged not voting for Trump in 2020.

    The Connecticut mom who strangled her three children before hanging herself left a suicide note for her husband that read, “Sorry, Pedro, I take my kids with me,” his cousin told The Post on Friday. Sonia Loja, 36, had long battled depression and had been crying for days over the shuttering of her illegal child-care business before Wednesday’s horrific murder-suicide in Danbury, said relative Digna Naulaguari, 47. Loja’s devastated husband, Pedro Panjon, saw no signs of the coming violence and only realized that something might be amiss when he got home from work that day — and none of the...

    Akhil Amar, the Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University, “is a self-described liberal, pro-choice Democrat.” Yet he supports the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade because, he said, “Roe just doesn’t cut it as a constitutional opinion.” In an appearance on the podcast Honestly with Bari Weiss, Amar, whose legal scholarship was cited multiple times in the Opinion of the Court that overturned Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, explained why he thinks the Constitution does not provide a right to terminate a pregnancy. “A person, like me, could be...

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) Cornyn is a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who negotiated with Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) last year on legislation to expand background checks for commercial sellers but without success. Cornyn scored one of the few notable accomplishments on gun violence legislation in recent years when he coauthored and helped pass the Fix NICS Act in 2018. The legislation required federal agencies to produce plans for uploading all relevant information to the National Instant Criminal Background Checks System. McConnell tapped Cornyn to lead the negotiations for Republicans shortly after a bipartisan group of senators met...

The Daily Wire lists exactly what the bill would do, including provisions to grant the federal government the ability to deny you weapons based on “red flags” it defines. (Hint: Believing in the Constitution is a “red flag”) Notably, the 80-page legislation includes language on highly controversial...

    Native American mascots are being phased out around the country at every level of sports, but four Connecticut school districts are still hanging onto theirs for dear life. And it's going to cost them. School districts for Derby, Killingly, Windsor, and Woodbury/Bethlehem are choosing to defy the state law which bars schools with Native American mascots from receiving tribal funding, Alex Putterman of CT Insider reported Wednesday.
