    Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that President Joe Biden was “squarely where the middle of the country is” on the Israel-Hamas war. Anchor Dana Bash said, “Do you think that when the president said what he said to Erin Burnett this week that what ended up happening is he tried to, I don’t want to take away from what he tried to do on policy, but just on the politics that it ended up kind of pleasing no one. Is that a potential problem, or do you think that is what he said...

    A North Texas woman was sentenced to nine years in prison after using Bitcoin to pay for a murder. Federal prosecutors said 58-year-old Michelle Murphy of Bedford used the dark web to find a hitman for her boyfriend’s lover. "To my knowledge, it's the first time this has happened in Texas, but it's happened plenty of places all over the United States," said former U.S. attorney Richard Roper. Investigators learned she used an ATM to convert cash to cryptocurrency at least three times and transferred about $10,500 to the hitman’s Bitcoin wallet. The person who accepted the money tipped off...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Sunday argued the rights of those participating in peaceful pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses should be protected, pointing to the country’s history of multi-day demonstrations. Asked on “Fox News Sunday” about the GOP calls for the Biden administration to be more forceful in quelling the protests, Murphy said, “We should… all speak out, right? When [a] protest crosses a line, when it becomes violent or when there’s hate speech.”

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said that it took “a lot of skill” and “probably some luck” to shoot down Iranian missiles and drones and “We could easily be dealing with dozens, if not hundreds, of dead Israelis today.” But “It certainly appears that the way in which Iran conducted this strike was telegraphing the fact that it does not want to be engaged in a deeper, bloodier, long-term conflict.”

    New Jersey first lady Tammy Murphy has suspended her U.S. Senate campaign to replace Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez as he faces federal corruption charges. Murphy announced her decision in a video posted to her social media on Sunday. “New Jersey’s next senator must focus on the issues of our time and not be mired in tearing others down while dividing the people of our party and state,” she said.

    Someone forgot to read the room. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) was ripped Friday for complaining about his scheduled CNN interview being bumped in favor of Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, announcing she had been diagnosed with cancer. Shortly before 2 p.m., as word spread that Kensington Palace would soon issue a major update on the princess’ health, Murphy told journalist Yashar Ali: “Can confirm!” “I was supposed to be on CNN at 2pm to talk about the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act and the millions of lives it has saved, but my interview has been bumped by this much...

    Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that only Democrats can deliver on tighter control of the U.S.-Mexico border. Achor Jonathan Karl said, “You’ve seen poll after poll. I could cite the latest Quinnipiac, but there’s been poll after poll showing an overwhelming majority of Americans disapprove of how President Biden has handled the border, and we’ve also seen the flow over the border dramatically increase under the president.

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) slammed former President Trump’s Thursday speech at the southern border as “disgusting” and “racist.” Murphy, a member of President Biden’s campaign advisory board, ripped Trump’s remarks given during an Eagle Pass, Texas, visit, calling them “xenophobic,” and went after the former president for his role in tanking bipartisan legislation that included border provisions last month. “I just think it’s disgusting,” Murphy said during an appearance on “CNN News Central” on Friday, when anchor John Berman asked him about Trump’s speech. “I think it’s racist and xenophobic.” Trump visited the southern border Thursday, touring the area with...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) argued that President Joe Biden “implemented one of the toughest new regulatory regimes at the border in decades,” and “What changed is that there are now 10,000 people showing up on a daily basis. And so, the crisis is bigger, it’s more immediate.” Host Anderson Cooper asked, “Do you accept that President Biden and his team waited too long, because there is an argument that he waited too long to address the gravity of this crisis? Today’s trip was only the second time he’s actually visited the southern border. He...

    By a vote of 214 for and 216 against, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas narrowly escaped being impeached by the US House of Representatives. Republicans had argued that his complete failure to interdict illegal immigration warranted his removal from office. However, every Democrat and three Republicans voted against impeachment. Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo) voted against impeachment saying that "Secretary Mayorkas has completely failed at his job. He is incompetent. He is an embarrassment. And he will most likely be remembered as the worst secretary of Homeland Security in the history of the United States. However, he was only following...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) hit the GOP over the tanked bipartisan Senate border bill on Sunday, claiming House Republicans decided to kill the bill in order to help former President Trump win the 2024 election. The sweeping border security and asylum overhaul bill initially had strong bipartisan support in the Senate last week, but it fell apart after Trump and the House GOP went against it. Murphy said in a CBS “Face the Nation” interview that Republicans didn’t want to hand Biden a win by passing it.

    Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Wednesday night on MSNBC’s “All In” that “undocumented Americans” were the people Democrats cared about most. Anchor Chris Hayes asked, “From my 20 years covering this issue, the trade is this, They want more border security enhancement, Democrats want a path to citizenship. This time around, the negotiation didn’t have a path to citizenship. It was entirely on their terms in order to get Ukraine funding, right.”

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) argued that “the only way that immigration ever gets solved as a problem is if Democrats are in charge of the House and the Senate,” like they were from 2021 to 2023, and “we change the rules, and we get something passed with a majority vote.” Murphy said, “I think, for the time being, Republicans are never going to compromise on immigration. I think the only way that immigration ever gets solved as a problem is if Democrats are in charge of the House and the Senate, we change...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has been using taxpayer resources to promote his wife as she campaigns to become the Garden State’s latest US Senator, according to records and critics. Gov. Murphy’s press office has pumped out a slew of fawning press releases — which appear on the governor’s website — about First Lady Tammy Murphy after she announced her Senate run on Nov. 15.

    Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump wanted “to preserve chaos” at the U.S.-Mexico border because he thought it was a winning political issue. Anchor Dana Bash said, “Do you have a deal?” Murphy said, “Well, we do have a bipartisan deal. We’re finishing the text right now. The question is whether Republicans are going to listen to Donald Trump, who wants to preserve chaos at the border, because he thinks it’s a winning political issue for him, or whether we are going to pass legislation which would be the...

    In November, Orsted nixed two major wind farm projects planned off the coast of New Jersey, citing the same problems that the company cited for the Skipjack Wind project.. Danish wind developer Orsted has canceled another contract on a planned offshore wind farm in the Atlantic Ocean. The company said the 966-megawatt Skipjack Wind project, planned to be constructed off the coasts of Delaware and Maryland, would no longer be commercially viable at the contract prices due to inflation, high interest rates and supply chain issues. “Today’s announcement affirms our commitment to developing value creating projects and represents an opportunity...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy asked charter bus companies bringing migrants to his state for a 32-hour notice of arrival Monday — on the heels of a similar order from New York City Mayor Eric Adams. In a letter to more than 20 companies, Murphy said more than 1,800 migrants from the southern US border have been dumped in the Garden State since Dec. 31, with nearly all of them continuing on to their intended destination in the Big Apple. “As we continue to see more migrants arrive to our state at the hands of the governor of Texas, who...
  • Is this the smoking gun for the Covid lab leak? Blueprint for creating a 'SARS-CoV' virus with an altered spike protein in Wuhan was published in 2018, bombshell new records show

    A newly-uncovered trove of documents detailing plans to create a Covid-like virus in China months before the pandemic make the 'lab leak almost certain', experts say. The records - obtained now by FOIA requests - lay out a plan to 'engineer spike proteins' to infect human cells that would then be 'inserted into SARS-Covid backbones' at the infamous Wuhan virology lab from December 2018. Just a year later, in late 2019, the Covid-19 virus emerged with a uniquely adept ability to infect humans, going on to cause a global pandemic. The proposal was made by the now-notorious EcoHealth Alliance, a...

    U.S. Marine Corps Major Joseph Murphy wrote a letter in August of 2021 with important evidentiary attachments that have now been obtained by Project Veritas. The documents further verify previously released information, according to Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe. Murphy, formerly a fellow with DARPA, has exposed additional “incriminating documents…hidden in a top-secret shared drive” concerning the gain-of-function research on bat-borne coronaviruses and the link between NIH and EcoHealth Alliance to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. According to Murphy, the documents were placed in the folder in July 2021. To this day, Fauci denies involvement in gain-of-function research and/or contracts....
