  • Dem Candidate Jennifer Wexton Has Staffer Dress as Cop to Fake Police Support [tr]

    Far left Democrat Jennifer Wexton is running for US Congress against Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock. Comstock is tied with Wexton in the latest polls after trailing for several weeks. But now this… Democrat Wexton was caught using fake cops in her ad showing support for her candidacy. In fact one of the fake cops is her campaign field director. A new ad for Jennifer Wexton, a top Democratic challenger to Virginia GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock, briefly features three police officers signing a poster promising “Change is Coming.” But none of them are actual law enforcement. In fact, one of them...

    Full title: Trump’s attacks on Sen. Blumenthal are actually more absurd than Blumenthal’s lies about serving ‘in’ Vietnam It’s always sad when one privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments attacks another privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments. President Trump went after Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., this week with an absurd retelling of how the senator once fabricated stories about serving in Vietnam as a U.S. Marine. To be clear, Trump isn’t wrong in calling Blumenthal a liar. The senator most absolutely embellished his record years ago, making it sound as if he served in Vietnam. Blumenthal never served...

    President Trump singled out Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., as one of the Democrats who most mistreated Brett Kavanaugh during Supreme Court confirmation hearings, branding him a hypocrite and launching into an extended tirade lampooning him making false claims about Vietnam. . . . "I just can't believe, it's because of the media, they've taken so much of it all, " Trump said. "But he, apologized like Jimmy Swaggart. Crying, bawling, because he conned the public when he was Attorney General of Connecticut for 15 years, talking about, 'As I went to Da Nang, bullets left and right. My friends going...
  • Blumenthal Hits Back at Trump for 'Nonsense' Personal Attacks About His Military Service

    Tweets at link. On Monday, President Trump defended Brett Kavanaugh in part by tearing apart the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He had particularly choice words for Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who claimed that placing Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court would forever be a "stain" on the institution. He has also stated that Trump's prior reluctance to call an FBI probe into the allegations against the nominee was "tantamount to a cover-up." So, Trump took that as an opportunity to zing Blumenthal this week for fabricating his military service back in 2010. In a campaign speech Monday, Trump gave...

    Bold faced liars are Unfit for the Senate. Richard Blumenthal is a pathetic case of stolen valor — lying and falsifying his military service. In the early days of "Da Nang Richard's" political career he repeatedly insinuated to voters that he served his country by fighting in the Vietnam War. He did not go to Vietnam. Truth: Da Nang Richard was a reservist who had never been deployed overseas, not once. How ironic that Blumenthal has the gall to insinuate that anyone else is not fit to serve office. How does Connecticut elect a man that has lied to them...

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) said Tuesday that Brett Kavanaugh’s temperament disqualifies him from the Supreme Court and that Democrats should teach Americans to think likewise. . . . Preventing Kavanaugh from getting onto the Court is a question of "core principles," according to Blumenthal. "I think our core principles and values would be violated," Blumenthal said.

    President Trump renewed his attacks on Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Saturday for past statements about his military service during the Vietnam War. The president wrote Saturday that Blumenthal, who has represented the state since 2011, "must talk" about his past statements concerning what Trump called his "fraudulent service in Vietnam." "[F]or 12 years he told the people of Connecticut, as their Attorney General, that he was a great Marine War Hero," the president wrote Saturday afternoon. "Talked about his many battles of near death, but was never in Vietnam. Total Phony!" Trump added in the tweet. Blumenthal's office did...

    Democratic Sen. Dick Blumenthal of Connecticut said Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would be “untruthful” if he fails “to acknowledge at least some” of the sexual assault allegations made against him by Christine Blasey Ford at Thursday’s hearing. . . “These allegations are made under oath by a woman, a survivor, who would lose her livelihood if she is incorrect, and … has presented corroborating witnesses,” he continued.

SENATOR BLUMENTHAL (D-CT): We're talking about a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court that will make a real difference in real people's lives for generations, literally generations to come with this appointment. And so we have a constitutional duty to get to the bottom of these allegations. They are serious, and credible, and now the person with the most knowledge about them, namely Judge Brett Kavanaugh has a...

    Showtime and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen rebuffed former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's claim that she was "duped" into a prank interview for the British actor's new series. The network said in a statement on Monday that Baron Cohen conducted the interview for his new show "Who is America?" dressed as one of his new characters, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D. But contrary to Palin's claim that the character was intended to be a disabled vet, Showtime said that the show's premiere on Sunday proved that wasn't the case. "There has been widespread misinformation over the past week about...

    John Kerry — who ran against George W. Bush in 2004 — told Palestinian officials he is strongly considering taking on President Trump in the next election. He also discussed the administration’s efforts to discuss a peace deal between Israel and Palestine following the White House’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Kerry had initially considered running in 2016, but ultimately decided against it. He previously lost the 2004 election after obtaining only 251 electoral college votes against Bush’s 286 votes.

    A Utah man faces criminal charges after allegedly threatening to kill President Donald Trump, according to an indictment filed Wednesday. The grand jury in central Utah returned the indictment showing multiple charges against Travis Luke Dominguez of threatening the President, the police and later people in a Utah movie theater complex, a bank and another business. “I’m a Navy SEAL,” the indictment quoted Dominguez, 33, as saying. “I woke up and decided going to kill the president Donald Trump today. Please forgive me and then I will die by suicide by cop.” The indictment went on to quote Dominguez as...

    Brooklyn Army vet Papotia Reginald Wright’s resume was impressive by any standard. He boasted of a Purple Heart, Bronze Star — and a slew of other medals as an elite Green Beret that got him into swanky galas and even field access to the Giants. But Wright is nothing but an accomplished fraud, it was revealed Thursday. He never served with Special Forces, never served in any combat role — and never rose above the rank of “specialist,” according to military documents obtained through FOIA by Guardians of the Green Beret. Wright even lied about how long he was in...

Lewis said he was a 22-year veteran of the Navy, a pollster at Ipsos/Reuters, an expert on rigging voting machines, a source who was feet away from Reince Preibus, a man who speaks six languages, a beleaguered soul who needed time off after the 9/11 attacks when he saw Muslims “dancing on rooftops,” the owner of a polling company who claimed Trump had a sustained lead in California, and an actual baseball umpire with 50 years experience.

    President Donald Trump on Monday unleashed a hostile tweet storm on Sen. Richard Blumenthal, making a number of claims against the Connecticut Democrat, including that he had lied about serving in Vietnam. Trump's Twitter fusillade was apparently set off by Blumenthal's appearance on CNN earlier Monday in which he spoke about the investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia. "I think is very important to protect and safeguard the independence and integrity of that investigation," Blumenthal said. Later Monday, Trump suggested Blumenthal take a long vacation in Vietnam "so he can at say he was there."

    President Trump is on vacation, but that hasn’t stopped him from watching early morning cable TV and tweeting angrily in response. On Monday, President Trump went after Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who was on CNN earlier in the morning to discuss the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Blumenthal also expressed concern that the Trump administration has “weaponized” investigations into leaks of classified information. On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the agency will be aggressively investigating leaks to the media. Blumenthal’s remarks touched off a trio of tweets from Trump, who began...

    Especially since it proves how worthless the Paris agreement really is. John Kerry was very good at his job as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State, at least if you understand that job to be what Obama wanted it to be: Negotiating awful international deals that are not in the interests of the United States. And it makes sense that Kerry would be good at this. He detests America, and has demonstrated this ever since he slandered his fellow Vietnam veterans at the Winter Soldier hearings in 1971. John Kerry is an anti-American jerk and a terrible human being.
