Democrats Reload on Gun Control Dec. 12, 2014 Democrats are nothing if not persistent. In the wake of their second straight midterm election shellacking, they have decided to double down on one of their pet issues: gun control. Republicans will soon have more members in Congress than they’ve had in more than 70 years, while Democrats have completely lost the South and have been routed at the state level. Yet they believe gun control is their silver bullet. The Progressive Change Campaign Committee launched the “Big Ideas Project” this week to gather ideas from the public in order to reenergize Democrats. If gun control is the big idea they came up with, they should keep asking questions. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) trumpeted this new initiative. “When you don’t pass background checks,” he warned, “it’s much more likely that someone will get their hands on an illegal gun and use it to kill their neighbors and classmates.” His fellow Connecticut Democrat, Richard Blumenthal, made an even more ...

So the Campaign Finance Amendment, that democrats want to pass as law, limits the amount of money that can be used during an election campaign. Congress gets frustrated when the defense of political speech puts their ideas second to the people, so now they want to limit fundraising for political speech. Limiting spending on political communication necessarily affects the quantity and quality of speech itself. Effectively making the first ammendment valid unless they agree with you. Here's the list of congressmen who voted for it.

Retired Staff Sergeants Celestino Cordova and Joe Pickard, two veterans from Connecticut, were among dozens of Borinqueneers from all over the country who traveled to Washington, D.C. for the bill signing.

THE BEST WAY TO STOP CRAZY PEOPLE FROM ATTACKING AND KILLING PEOPLE... Potential victims need to be able to defend themselves. Why psychiatrists can’t stop mass killings By Arthur Berg and John R. Lott Jr. June 1, 2014 | 8:34pm Modal Trigger Elliot Rodger, killed six people and wounded 13 in Santa Barbara. James Holmes, killed 12 people and injured 58 others during a Colorado shooting rampage in 2012. Adam Lanza, killed his mother at their home and then opened fire inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, killing 26 people. No arrests after 7 shot at Chicago laundromat. More money for mental health won’t stop these mass murderers. With the Santa Barbara killings, mental health is again the central focus. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) is pushing for more resources on mental health “to make sure that these kinds of horrific, insane, mad occurrences are stopped and the Congress will be complicit if we fail to act.” But the killer, Elliot Rodger, had already been receiving top-quality ment ...
BLUMENTHAL WANTS TO BRING BACK GUN BILLS By JON PRIOR Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Sunday he would urge Senate leaders to reconsider tougher gun control and mental health measures in the wake of this weekend's deadly shootings near the University of California, Santa Barbara. Appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," the Connecticut Democrat said the recent shootings reminded him of the 2012 shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. after which "it seemed like we were on the verge of legislation that would stop the madness." Those measures, which would include tougher background checks on gun sales and certain mental health initiatives, ultimately failed in Congress. But Blumenthal said he would urge lawmakers to "reconfigure" the bills to focus more on the mental health provisions, where he said there could be some agreement with Republicans. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) said on the same program that it was important to have policies in place that allow people with mental health issu ...

Rep. Adam Kinzinger: Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki must go ZACK COLMAN Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., called on President Obama to oust Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki following revelations that VA officials falsified records that led to medical delays that contributed to the deaths of 23 veterans. "It's been six years. He hasn't been able to tackle this. We've got to have answers now," Kinzinger said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation." Other lawmakers weren't willing to go that far — House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller, R-Fla., said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that it made more sense to wait until information becomes available. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said that would be hastened if the Justice Department got involved, noting that it could convene a grand jury whereas the VA's inspector general could not. Justice Department involvement also would "reflect and present an outside, independent authority that can offer accountability and the perception of ...

Gary Holder-Winfield Wins State Senate Vote In Connecticut "New Haven, Conn. (AP) - Democratic state Rep. Gary Holder-Winfield of New Haven has won a special state Senate election to succeed Toni Harp, the city's new mayor. The New Haven Register reports Holder-Winfield defeated Republican Steven R. Mullins 3,235 to 1,045 Tuesday. That's based on unofficial returns. Holder-Winfield had the backing of top state Democrats for the 10th District seat, including state Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney and U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy. Mullins is interim chairman of the West Haven Planning and Zoning Commission. Mullins opposes gun regulations enacted last year after 20 children and six educators were slain at a Newtown elementary school. Harp was elected mayor of New Haven last November."

It’s surely to have Supreme Court Justices Thomas and Scalia quaking in their Tea Party boots because it would mean they would actually have to be independent of political and other influences. They would also have to have the appearance of independence. They would have to stay away from political activity. That part would be really hard. As it stands, this law would help guarantee that Supreme Court Justices are held to the same ethical standards we expect of other judges. Democratic Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, joined by Senators Chris Murphy, Richard Blumenthal and Sheldon Whitehouse, introduced the bill. It would make ethics mandatory, rather than an option left to the discretion of Justices like Thomas and Scalia. It would mean all the Justices would have to live by the sort of ethical standards that Justice Kagan applied when she recused herself from Arizona .. ...
VA Crisis Hotline Issues: About a month ago I posted about an event that happened to me when attempting to assist a fellow Veteran who was giving cues about possibly committing suicide. I had reached out to the VA Crisis Hotline for assistance, only to have my calls put on hold for upwards to 5 minutes prior to speaking to a human, and/or my calls simply being “dropped”. This was a gross failure of services for our Veterans’ that may be at the end-of-their-rope and reaching out for help. Well, today was my day of action… while in Washington D.C. I hand delivered the attached letter to every Senator who sits on the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. Here are the names of those who received the letter: Bernie Sanders (VT), John D. Rockefeller (WV), Patty Murray (WA), Sherrod Brown (OH), Jon Tester (MT), Mark Begich (AK), Richard Blumenthal (CT), Richard Burr (NC), Johnny Isakson (GA), Mike Johanns (NE), Jerry Moran (KS), John Boozman (AR) and Dean Heller (NV). Further, I also gave th ...
It would be greatly appreciated if you could read this blog over. This is a big movement towards the goal to take down the mass surveillance of the NSA and their allies that has been growing stronger and harder to ignore over the years. It takes less then 10 minuets for someone to make an impact, make a call to Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, as well as your local representative. More detailed information and instructions are listed in the blog, as well as you for helping yourself, myself, and everyone who shares the internet we have come to love! Lets make this a better internet for all!
So, what do *** Durbin, Richard Blumenthal, Sherrod Brown, Ed Markey, Tom Harkin, Barbara Boxer, and Henry Waxman have in common? They're stupid. I'm sure you knew that, but now it's conclusive. They want to ban e- cigarettes at the Capitol. Yes, they feel they're no different than regular smokes. Notice how I said feel and not think. Yet they have no research to back this garbage up. They're concerned that others might be exposed to vapor, water vapor. Yes, people who accused the right of being anti-science are terrified by a substance that's found in fog. But I guess they should also ban nicotine gum, too, which like e-cigs, are nontobacco delivery systems that replace deadly smoking. These morons claim it's all about promoting health, but they're too dumb to see that e-cigarettes are doing just that. Ban them, and people will smoke the real thing. Maybe that's the point, Henry Waxman wants me dead. Of course, their cowardly and profoundly infantile defense will always be about perceived danger. That .. ...
U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy to hold roundtable discussion at 1 p.m. today at New Haven Elks Lodge on gun violence in Connecticut cities and what is needed from federal government to help fight it.
Heating Oil Program Gets Last $9.8 Million HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Members of the Connecticut congressional delegation say the federal government has released more than $9.8 million to help low-income families and seniors cover their home heating costs. The money represents nearly all of Connecticut's remaining funds for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program for this fiscal year. The state was allocated more than $77.4 million and received 90 percent of the funds in November. The program helps more than 100,000 Connecticut residents each year. The funding was announced by U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal with U.S. Reps. Rosa DeLauro, Jim Himes, Elizabeth Esty, John Larson and Joe Courtney."
At the Eric Holder hearing, that is going on right now, after Mike Lee spoke about his concerns of the presidents executive order power grab, Richard Blumenthal (D Mass) just said that Obama has not abused his powers and has not done anything illegal *** !) and then said " I wish he would act on his own more" What the fu*k is wrong with the democrats? I know we sometimes sound like a broken recored but what the actual fu*k is wrong with them? I don't even like to debate with these people anymore, not only does my blood pressure go through the roof but you can actually see my IQ drop and flow out of my ears on to the floor when they try and explain how this is all ok.- SMB
It was supposed to be a joke - a skit during the Golden Globes telecast showing actress Julia Louis Dreyfus puffing on a vaporized e-cigarette. In the skit, hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at Dreyfus, who was then shown looking very cool, in sunglasses, with e-cigarette in hand. Some members of Congress, however, are not laughing, CBS News' Jan Crawford reports. They accuse the Golden Globes, which also showed actor Leonardo DiCaprio puffing on an e-cigarette during the broadcast, of glamorizing smoking. "You're killing the next generation of fans in your movies," Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., said on the Senate floor. Four senators, including Durbin, fired off angry letters to NBC, which broadcast the show, and to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which gave out the awards. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., was one of them. He said e-cigarettes are a gateway to smoking. "There's a reason that Big Tobacco companies are buying the e-cigarette manufacturers, and that is they see a way to indu ...
You really should read this! On the list: Jared Polis, Jay Rockefeller, John Delaney, Mark Warner, Nancy Pelosi, Richard Blumenthal, Scott Peters.
Nice to see CT.'s own Richard Blumenthal on the list of the top ten wealthiest people in Congress. When he ran for Congress you rarely saw him listed as "weathy" democratic candidate but quite often saw the "wealthy" Republican candidate regarding his opponent. He's even ahead of Jay Rockefeller and Nancy Pelosi, who is number 10. Quite a distinction !!
UPS, Amazon to reportedly offer refunds after Christmas delivery delays Published December 27, 2013 FoxNews.com Dec. 16, 2013: In this file photo, package handler Chris Addison arranges packages before loading a delivery truck at a FedEx sorting facility in Kansas City, Mo. (AP) The United Parcel Service and Amazon.com will reportedly offer refunds to some customers after poor weather and overloaded systems delayed packages that were intended to be delivered in time for Christmas. Amazon customers who did not get their deliveries by Christmas Day will get $20 gift cards and refunds on shipping costs, The Washington Post reported. UPS is also offering refunds on shipping charges. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., on Thursday called on UPS to refund customers whose Christmas packages got caught up in widespread delays. "In a very real sense, Christmas is on the line,"Blumenthal said in a written statement. "I call on UPS to do the right thing and provide refunds to people whose Christmases were a little les ...
Zionist hunting dogs in the US Senate: A new report has revealed the names of 15 Democratic senators who are threatening to push the United States into a war with Iran by introducing a new sanctions bill. The Huffington Post on Monday named the anti-Iran senators, who introduced the bill last week. Nineteen Republican senators also cosponsored the legislation. Under a nuclear agreement reached in Geneva last month, the United States should not impose fresh economic sanctions against Iran over the next six months. Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) is leading the charge to pass legislation in January that would impose additional sanctions on Iran. Other Democratic senators are Sen. Mark Begich (Alaska), Sen. Richard Blumenthal (Conn.), Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), Sen. Ben Cardin (Md.), Sen. Bob Casey (Pa.), Sen. Chris *** (Del.), Sen. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Sen.

Nevada, please send Harry home! “I think it resembles fourth graders playing in a sandbox, and I’ll give the majority leader, Harry Reid, 99 percent of the responsibility for it,” Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee and usually one of the more reserved members, said Thursday. “He’s going to have ‘The End of the Senate’ written on his tombstone,” Mr. Alexander complained. Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, called this week “chaotic and confusing, and a shameful waste of time.”

I met Sen. Richard Blumenthal at the Hart Senate bldg. Really nice guy and great convo.
A couple of news items of interest today (from a friend who tracks "nuclear industry" news articles of interest): . December 13, 2013 - Hartford Courant - Yucca Mountain Behind Filibuster Change? - According to a Wall Street Journal article No. 23, one of the reasons Senate majority leader Harry Reid exercised the "nuclear option" was to stack the D.C. Appeals Court with appointees that will block the development of Yucca Mountain, the federal nuclear waste repository that Reid and his toady, Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gegory Jaczko, have shut down for now. Perhaps Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy can explain why they supported Reid's unconscionable action, and in doing so, condemned Connecticut to nuclear waste stored in this state indefinitely. In this time of unimaginable power grabs by the left, this one truly has long-term repercussions that must be answered for. .

Budget deal reached amid conservative opposition WASHINGTON: Budget negotiators in the Congress have reached an agreement on Tuesday that, if approved by the House and Senate, could restore some order to the nation's chaotic budget process and avoid another government shutdown on January 15. The chief negotiators, Democratic Senator Patty Murray and Republican Representative Paul Ryan, were to announce details at a news conference at 6pm ET (2300 GMT). While not a big deal in terms of deficit reduction, enactment of the funding measure - by no means a certainty - would be a departure from the political showdowns of recent years that have rattled markets, threatened the country's economic recovery and lowered the standing of the US Congress to all-time lows in the eyes of voters. The most immediate result would be to avoid starting the new year with another government shutdown on January 15. The government was partially closed from October 1 to October 16 after a battle over Obamacare held up passage of a ...

Lawmakers hear mixed message on limiting spectrum bidding The U.S. Federal Communications Commission should limit the amount of spectrum that giant mobile carriers AT&T and Verizon Communications are able to buy in an auction scheduled for mid-2015, some U.S. senators said Tuesday. But lawmakers could reach no consensus on proposals to limit the bids of the two largest mobile carriers in the U.S. in the upcoming auction of spectrum now controlled by television stations. Some Republican senators, along with an AT&T representative and other witnesses, including an AT&T official, called for unrestricted bidding in the mid-2015 auction of 600MHz spectrum. ”The FCC should let all interested participants freely compete against one other in the open market,” Senator John Thune, a South Dakota Republican, said during a Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee hearing. “It should avoid putting its thumb on the scales. The value of using spectrum auctions is that the free market is more effective ...

Gm today we wish to share some info on two things that can have an effect on mass incarceration: There are two Bills focused on Racial Profiling; and Momentum Is Building For the Legislation. Senator Cardin is the author of S. 1038, the Senate version of the bill, which has 16 cosponsors including Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Assistant Majority Leader/Judiciary Committee Member *** Durbin (D-IL), Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Christopher *** (D-DE), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Tom Harkin (D-IA), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), the late Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), Carl Levin (D-MI), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Christopher Murphy (D-CT), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Federal lawmakers call for installation of cameras in trains WASHINGTON – US Senators Charles Schumer (NY) and Richard Blumenthal (CT) Sunday urged the Federal Railroad Administration to immediately begin requiring safety monitoring systems with inward and outward facing cameras in locomotives and operating railway cabs. Their call comes following the December 1 fatal derailment of a Metro-North train in the Bronx. The Hudson Line train departed from Poughkeepsie to New York City. It took a sharp turn in a 30 mile per hour zone at 82 mph. Those systems were recommended following a 2008 railway collision in California, but the federal lawmakers said to date, the Federal Railway Administration has yet to take any regulatory action putting the recommendations in place. Schumer and Blumenthal said that those recording devices could be used to deter against dangerous behavior, like falling asleep or texting and allow rail officials to monitor and correct that behavior before an accident occurred. It could al ...

Two of the BEST American and Italian backgrounds: We keep moving up and growing: Congratulations to the new Mayor of Derby, CT.: DERBY -- On Saturday, the city celebrated the inauguration of its first female mayor. On Monday, Anita Dugatto will get down to work first by announcing her staff and then trying to rebuild the downtown in this once-thriving industrial city of nearly 13,000. That task, warned Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, is sometimes going to feel "like pulling teeth." But the mayor has experience with that too, said Wyman. Dugatto is a dentist and owner of Sunshine Dental Care on Elizabeth Street. Nearly 150 people watched Wyman twice flub her lines in administering the oath of office to the new mayor, subbing first Waterbury, then Danbury before finally correcting herself with Derby. This led Marc J. Garofalo, a former Derby mayor and now its city/town clerk, who acted as master of ceremonies, to explain Wyman's flub by quipping, "Danbury is the hat city and a derby is a hat." U.S. Sen. Richard Blum ...

From the new Senator: 911 tapes relive tragedy
Response from Kelly Ayotte. Please let her know what you think about her decision to deny poor women access to abortions. Thank you for contacting me regarding the Women's Health Protection Act (S. 1696). I appreciate hearing from you. On November 13, 2013, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) introduced S. 1696, which was referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. If enacted, S. 1696 would prohibit any state from passing laws that restrict access to abortions. I am pro-life, and I do not think it is appropriate to spend taxpayer dollars on elective abortion services. Although I am not a member of the Judiciary Committee, please be assured that I will keep your thoughts in mind should the full Senate consider S. 1696.
I found this comment on Steve King's official page. It's written by Lea Vee and she expressed beautifully what needs to be said to Mr King... Congressman King, I am writing to you today regarding your comments during your LiveStream town hall about dog fighting spectators. There is nothing wrong with my priorities regarding living creatures and animal rights because when people choose to fight- they do just that, they choose to step into a ring and fight; dogs, roosters and other animals are forced by people into barbaric situations and suffer terrible treatment before, during and after these terrible happenings and after often killed after a loss. However, aside from the fact that these animals are living creatures who feel pain, Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States whom you referenced in your video has come out with a statement saying “Spectators are participants and accomplices who enable the crime of animal fighting, make the enterprise profitable through admis ...
