    CHRIS MATTHEWS: I was listening to [David] Brat last night, and today. I hink he's very sophisticated for a politician. He's certainly up to the ranks of most politicians I've ever dealt with. He speaks in a speculative manner and an intellectual manner. He can handle any debate on this program or my program. This looking down our noses at tea party people has got to stop. They have a message, they're as American as any liberal is, and they're really angry about the failure of the system. I was over covering eastern Europe when the wall came down. The...

    Senator works to establish rights of college victims After visiting seven colleges throughout Connecticut to talk about the issue, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal has announced he is crafting legislation to create a "bill of rights" for victims of sexual assaults on college campuses. Noting that one in five women will become a victim, Blumenthal called campus sexual assault a national epidemic. "Sexual violence is a societal issue, not a women's issue, and more must be done to protect students on campuses nationwide," he said. Blumenthal is working with Sens. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., on legislative proposals that...

    A high school baseball player in Washington State threw 194 pitches over 14 innings Tuesday before being removed in the 15th inning of his team's eventual 1-0 victory in its district tournament. Rochester High School starting pitcher Dylan Fosnacht struck out 17 and was pulled in the top of the 15th after the first two batters reached base. Dustin Wilson, who had been playing catcher, finished the 17-inning win over La Center High School and then pitched all seven innings of Rochester's second game that day, a 5-3 victory over Elma High School. Fosnacht posted a picture of himself and...

    CLIVEN BUNDY: Now let me talk about the Spanish people. You know, I understand that they come over here against our Constitution and cross our borders. But they're here and they're people. I worked side-by-side with a lot of them. Don't tell me they don't work, and don't tell me they don't pay taxes. Don't tell me they don't have better family structures than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, they're together. They picnic together. They're spending their time together. And I'll tell you, in my way of thinking, they're awful nice people. We need...

    Daniel Murphy was back in the lineup — and singled in his first at-bat of the season — Thursday afternoon after being placed on paternity leave prior to the New York Mets’ opener. Murphy left the team Monday to be with his wife in Florida for the birth of their son, Noah. The 29-year-old responded in stride to criticism from two WFAN radio shows regarding his time away from the club. Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton — co-hosts of the “Boomer & Carton” show — and Mike Francesa touched off a nationwide debate Wednesday when they said if they were...

    Abortion – the “life-sustaining act” of the ages. That’s the theme behind an exhibit currently on display at the University of Michigan dedicated to defending and glamorizing the history of abortion. “4000 Years for Choice is an exhibition of posters about the age-old practices of abortion and contraception as a means to reclaim reproductive freedom as a deeply personal and life-sustaining act existing throughout all of human history,” states a university webpage describing the exhibit. The exhibit will be showcased through May 29 in the main lobby of the Lane Hall women’s studies building on campus. The exhibit consists of...

    North Stonington — Ashbow Sebastian said Wednesday he is cooperating fully with state environmental conservation officers investigating a possible wolf-dog hybrid shot and killed last month in the area around Long Pond, and that he owns seven dogs that are all white German shepherds. "No, it wasn't my dog," Sebastian said of the animal identified by genetic tests as a wolf-dog hybrid. "My dogs are not hybrids. Where that hybrid came from, I don't know." Sebastian, war chief of the Eastern Pequot tribe, has been the focus of the investigation that state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officers launched...

    NEW YORK (AP) — In his most extensive comments about the 2012 Connecticut school massacre, the father of gunman Adam Lanza describes his struggle to comprehend what his son did — an act that "couldn't get any more evil" — and how he now wishes that his son had never been born. Peter Lanza also told The New Yorker magazine in a series of interviews last fall that he believes Adam would have killed him, too, if he had the chance. And he often contemplates what he could have done differently in his relationship with Adam, although he believes the...

    WASHINGTON — IF you can’t spell it, you can’t get it. President Obama pulled a Quayle Thursday night at a White House performance by the women of soul and muffed the title of Aretha Franklin’s anthem. “R-S-P-E-C-T,” he said, looking a bit confused and eliciting laughter. When Patti LaBelle took the stage, she told Obama, “Baby, you’ve got swag.” Swag and respect are exactly what the president needs. He’s got a swag gap with Russia. His administration, after belatedly figuring out what was going on in Ukraine, is improvising as the uber-swaggering Vladimir Putin once more rolls in with tanks...

    Highest state pensioner: 'It seemed fair at the time' Of all the state pension checks cashed in 2012, none was bigger than John F. Veiga's. The Coventry resident spent 37 years teaching business at the University of Connecticut. In 2009, he accepted an early retirement buyout offer from the state after contributing $222,128 to his pension during his UConn career. Now, at age 70, that pension pays him $276,364 a year, the largest amount paid to a single state retiree in 2012, nearly nine times the $31,666 average state employee pension. According to calculations by the data analysis firm VisiGov:...
  • 'A financial time bomb': [CT] State pension system is one of the country's most underfunded

    The New London Day ^ | January 12th, 2014 | Johanna Somers
    Retired Connecticut state employees received the highest annual pensions in the country in 2011, despite contributing less out of their paychecks than the national average. That meant the state's pension system was the second-most underfunded in the United States, in worse shape than every other state's except Illinois'. Connecticut would have to allocate about $70 million in additional funds each year for 18 years to close the funding gap in the major state employees' pension system, according to actuarial estimates. And that wouldn't address the $11 billion gap in the teachers' retirement system, which would need tens of millions of...

"I want heads to roll," Pat Carroll, the attorney for the woman who claims Winston raped her in December 2012, told ABC News in an exclusive interview. Carroll said the Tallahassee Police Department was negligent in handling her client's case against the 20-year-old Heisman Trophy winner.

Superville of the Hackensack (NJ) Record tells us. Meanwhile, down in Atlanta: “Her sons were 12 and 8 when Marlyn Tillman realized it was time for her to have the talk,” Gracie Bonds Staples writes in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Leonard Greene talks about the talk in the New York Post. Someone bylined as KJ Dell’Antonia talks about the talk in The New York Times. Darryl Owens talks about the talk in...

    BILL O'REILLY: Let's just be frank here. You want to be frank, Howard? You want to be honest? Sarah Palin won't do this program. She won't come on the program because she doesn't want to mix it up. She doesn't. She wants to give a speech, and nobody gives speeches here. Okay? So she doesn't come on. We invited her on tonight. You're here instead. But I don't begrudge Sarah Palin that. She can come on. She doesn't come on, she does come on, whatever she wants to do. Okay? Fine.

    Do you know where your personal data is going? After meeting with several Obamacare Navigators who openly encouraged our undercover reporters to lie about income status, health history and more, it became clear that personal data was also being “cross-pollinated.” Enter Enroll America, a Sebelius-linked group dedicated to signing people up for Obamacare and Chris Tarango, Texas Enroll America Communications Director who Project Veritas caught on tape agreeing to help obtain a private list of potential Obamacare enrollee data for election/political purposes. Tarango goes so far to say he’ll “Do whatever it f****** takes.”

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Amtrak wants to know how one of its trains took a wrong turn and got lost in the Philadelphia suburbs. Worried and baffled were most travelers at 30th Street Station Tuesday night. Mike Roberts of Coatesville said, “Wow, that’s crazy. That’s not professional at all. How could that happen?” It sounds wild, but Amtrak officials confirm it did happen and what they can tell us so far is this: Amtrak Train 644 that left 30th Street Station for New York City accidentally ended up on the SEPTA tracks. The train actually traveled several miles before the mistake...

    CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Senator, when Obamacare was at issue, a month ago, when it came to a continuing resolution to funding the government you supported a filibuster of other Senators, who demanded that you had to have a change or the abolition of Obamacare as a condition for funding the government. In retrospect do you think that was a good strategy? But even more importantly --looking ahead, the deadlines are coming up, the resolution's going to run out, we're going to hit the debt ceiling soon -- would you be prepared to use same tactic as we approach the new deadlines?...

    Last week at more than 200 colleges and high schools across the nation, students came together to arrange memorials on campus featuring thousands of flags representing each victim of Islamic terrorism on that date. Who could find that gesture offensive? Five student protesters at Middlebury College in Vermont, brainwashed by multiculturalist nonsense, that’s who. “The 9/11: Never Forget Project has been an annual nonpartisan event at Middlebury College for the past ten years,” writes Hillary Cherry, Program Officer of Public Relations there. The flags have been posted at Middlebury annually in a joint effort between the College Republicans and Democrats....

    ATLANTA -- Tiger Woods would like to see a time limit placed on viewer call-ins of possible rules violations and endorsed PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem's view that such situations need to be studied. Woods, who has been involved in three high-profile rules infractions this year while also coming under scrutiny for a drop at The Players Championship, said Wednesday that the potential for improvements in technology is part of the issue. PGA Tour commish Tim Finchem says spectators calling violations is "awkward." Should this be able to happen? Vote! "I think what the commissioner said yesterday is very appropriate,''...

    The Republican Study Committee in the House of Representatives will unveil a healthcare bill Wednesday that would replace Obamacare. The bill, titled the Republican Study Committee’s American Healthcare Reform Act, “dramatically opens up options for families, and dramatically lowers costs” compared to the Obamacare law, committee chairman Louisiana Rep. Steven Scalise told The Daily Caller. The 200-page budget-neutral bill would provide $20,000 in tax deductions to families and a $7,500 deduction to individuals, so they can buy insurance from vendors in any state. It would also would allow Americans to keep the money they save by picking lower-cost providers. In...

    WASHINGTON — On the most deadly day here since Sept. 11, 2001, with the capital reeling over the sadly familiar scene of a mass shooting by a madman, the chief executive stepped to the microphones and captured the heartbreak. It wasn’t the chief executive of the nation. It was Dr. Janis Orlowski, the chief operating officer of MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where three of those injured were being treated. “There’s something evil in our society that we as Americans have to work to try and eradicate,” she said, her voice stoic but laced with emotion. President Obama also gave a...
