    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, which has turned into special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, was “corrupt at the core.” MACCALLUM: I want to ask you before I let you go a non-foreign policy question with regards to Bruce Ohr, who is a Department of Justice official Who worked under Sally Yates and just a few offices down from the head of the Justice Department. He’s becoming a much more central figure in what looks to be the initiation of this Russia...

    The Democrats Don’t Have a Foreign Policy, They Have A Trump Policy Not just treasonous, stupid. May 10, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. Quick, what’s the Dem position on Syria? What about China? Don’t bother. There was once a time when Democrats could discuss Syria, North Korea, the South China Sea, economic tensions in the European Union and the future of Africa. But that was before Trump. Democrats don’t have a foreign policy anymore. They have a Trump...

    Shortened title. Full title: Democrat Senator: ‘Survival of Our Democracy’ Depends on Banning Conservative Websites From Social Media The Communist Democrat Senator of Connecticut, Chris Murphy called for more [all] conservative websites to be banned from social media after InfoWars was banned across the board in a coordinated attack by the tech tyrants on Monday. Democrat Chris Murphy wants Chinese style censorship of people he doesn’t agree with politically. This is the modern day Democrat party–no different than the Communist Chinese who use firewalls to ban websites.
  • Democrat Senator: ‘Infowars Is Just The Tip Of A Giant Iceberg’

    Following the removal of Alex Jones from Facebook, Apple and YouTube, for violating “hate speech” policies, Democrat Senator Chris Murphy tweeted “Infowars is just the tip of a giant iceberg.”Monday afternoon Murphy tweeted, “I know Facebook and Apple and YouTube have gotten so big they sometimes seem like the government. But they aren’t. They are private companies that shouldn’t knowingly spread lies and hate. They took a good first step today removing Infowars. Infowars is just the tip of the iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and Youtube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our...

    Powerline ^ | August 2, 2018 | Scott Johnson
    Whenever I get around to running a most punchable face contest on Power Line, Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal will be one of the contestants. Blumenthal’s outward appearance and visible affect are the least of it. Either he is a bloomin’ idiot or he thinks he is talking to bloomin’ idiots, or both. At a rally against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice yesterday on Capitol Hill, for example, Blumenthal warned that Kavanaugh’s confirmation would make Trump a monarch. Now that is stupid, but I thought Trump was Hitler already! This guy doesn’t even know how to do...

    A Connecticut city official who came under fire just weeks ago for taking a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance once again knelt in protest on Monday. Haddam Selectman Melissa Schlag, a Democrat, first drew outrage when she took a knee on July 16 at a Board of Selectman meeting. Schlag then posted a letter on Facebook that defended her actions, saying she knelt due to "extreme sorrow" for the country under President Trump.

    NEW HAVEN — More disappointing news for the city. Fitch has downgraded the city’s credit rating on the heels of a similar downgrade Wednesday from S&P Global Retings as New Haven gets ready to sell bonds around Aug. 2. Fitch downgraded the rating from A- to BBB, with a negative outlook from stable. S&P gave the city a BBB+ rating with a negative outlook. The new bonds are $58,030,000 to finance city and school projects and $160 million in refunding bonds, which will be used for debt service savings and to cover an estimated $15 million fiscal year 2018 deficit....

    Joe Lieberman has long been many Republicans favorite Democrat. Not because he’s particularly conservative but because he’s an honest, well-meaning politician… and there aren’t many of those around anymore. Lieberman is in the news again now because he’s penned an op-ed criticizing his party’s shift to the left. Lieberman argues that if Democratic-Socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez truly are the future of the Democrat Party, then the Democrat Party doesn’t have a very bright future ahead. Really the point was, what is the Democratic party going to be? I am still a Democrat and when I see somebody that really says...

  • Four Blue States Protest Tax Reform with a Frivolous Lawsuit

    National Review ^ | 07/19/2018 | By JEFFREY DORFMAN
    The Constitution Does not Mandate Deduction of State Taxes. Four high-tax blue states — New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and New Jersey — have filed suit against the federal government over the recent tax reform. Specifically, they object to its limitation on the deduction for state and local taxes (SALT). Under federal tax law, filers are allowed to deduct property taxes (the local part) and either state income or sales taxes. But under the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA), the SALT deduction is now capped at $10,000. This deduction had been particularly valuable in high-tax, high-house-price states such as California...

    Amy Air Forces Staff Sgt. John H. Canty was laid to rest under blue skies at Arlington National Cemetery on Tuesday, [July 10, 2018] more than seven decades after his plane was shot down over occupied France. More than two dozen family and friends from his native Winsted, Conn., Georgia, Illinois and Nebraska gathered at the chapel for a private service, then Canty’s flag-draped casket was placed on a caisson for the procession to the gravesite for burial with full military honors. A lone drummer kept cadence as an honor guard escorted the horse-drawn caisson down a quiet tree-lined road....

    How did Americans develop their love affair with driving? Visit the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington and the transportation exhibit “America on the Move” will sell you on the commonly held theory that when Henry Ford made cars affordable, Americans loved them and demanded more and more highways. Of course, that exhibit is sponsored by General Motors, which donated millions to put its name on the collection. But University of Virginia history professor Peter Norton, author of “Fighting Traffic: The Dawn of the Motor Age in American cities” contends that’s a myth. Just as outgoing President Dwight...
