    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Protesters rallied again Monday, asking for Governor Ned Lamont to consider reopening the state. “We appreciate his thinking of taking care of us all, but people are suffering right now and they’re not suffering with COVID,” said Marnee Palladino. One of the biggest complaints is they don’t understand why the big box stores can be open while mom and pop shops remain closed. They believe if Lamont does the right thing by reopening the state, people will do the right thing. “It’s unfair that big box stores like Walmart are able to be open while smaller...

    Nearly 200 evangelical leaders condemned Christianity Today's editorial calling for the removal of President Trump, which “offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations," they wrote to the magazine's president. Christianity Today, one of the nation's top Christian magazine publications called for the removal of Trump on Thursday, one day after the House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment against him. The letter to Timothy Dalrymple, the president of the magazine, also condemned the editorial for dismissing evangelicals who oppose its views as "far-right," the Christian Post...

    Connecticut: Where Ridicule is a Crime by Alan M. Dershowitz November 2, 2019 at 5:00 am Among the most fundamental First Amendment rights is to ridicule — regardless of the reason. The same is true of holding people or groups up to contempt. Were Connecticut's absurd statute to be upheld — which it will not be — it could be applied to comedians, op-ed writers, politicians, professors and other students. And what about "creed"? Is being a conservative or a Trump supporter a creed that cannot be ridiculed?... [T]herein lies its greatest danger: selective prosecution based on current political correctness....

    The New London police department has expanded its investigation into misconduct in the school district, even as the district moves to suspend more employees. The district already had confirmed the suspension of four people directly related to an ongoing investigation into Corriche Gaskin, the 35-year-old former behavioral specialist accused of sexually assaulting an underage teen and using a cellphone to record his sexual encounters with fellow teachers inside Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School in the 2016-17 school year. There are five additional employees out on paid administrative leave based on allegations not directly related to Gaskin’s criminal case. Three of...

    Republicans won two of the five state legislative seats at stake in special elections Tuesday, flipping House and Senate districts by carrying blue-collar communities that have grown difficult for Democrats. All five vacancies were the result of Gov. Lamont hiring Democratic legislators in January. Even with the losses, Democrats retained solid majorities of 91-60 in the House and 22-14 in the Senate. But Republicans got a morale boost after losing ground in the General Assembly last fall for the first time in 10 years. In the night’s biggest upset, Republican Gennaro Bizzarro of New Britain won the the 6th Senate...

    Don’t ever let anyone convince you that all Democrats are complete fiscal or economic ignoramuses. It may just seem that way listening to the new darling of the radical left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. For sure, there appear to be some economic principles that just escape them, like the impact of Medicare-for-All, but at least some Democrats understand basic tax policy and the effects of taxation. At least some understand that if you want more of something, tax it less, and if you want less, tax it more. Take, for example, Connecticut Democratic state Rep. Jillian Gilchrest’s new ammunition tax proposal. She...

    HADDAM, Conn. (AP) — A town official opposed to President Donald Trump’s policies took a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance at a tense meeting packed with more than 100 people, dividing community residents and furthering an intense debate over protests and the First Amendment. Haddam Selectwoman Melissa Schlag faced jeers while she kneeled during the pledge on Monday and asked residents and politicians to not add words to her “silent protest.” “I appreciate everyone coming out because this is truly town government at its best,” Schlag, a Democrat, said after the demonstration. “We need to continue the conversation or...

    She said she had been subjected to countless rape and death threats, as well as profanities on social media such as “b***h” and “c**t”. “The more successful a man becomes the more people like him,” Ms Clinton told the audience at Sydney’s International Convention Centre. “With women it’s the opposite. “Calling a woman incompetent or disagreeing might not be pleasant but it’s fair game ... But when it goes into the most foul, really horrible insults and accusations where there’s no argument or debate, and it’s just name calling of the most vile sort, that’s something different.”
