Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) spoke during a recent gala held by a communist group, hailing the event as a “remarkable occasion.” Blumenthal was present when the Connecticut People’s World Committee, a branch of Communist Party USA, held an awards ceremony earlier this month. He was introduced as a “special surprise guest.” “I am really excited and honored to be with you today and to share this remarkable occasion,” (snip) “You don’t have to agree with anyone or everyone, with any party or any particular union or organization. I’m here to honor the great tradition of activism and standing up for individual workers that is represented by the three honorees here,”


How ecumenical of him. I loathe this cretin.

A huge swath of all Dems are actually Communist in all their political beliefs, so this fits perfectly. He's a stolen valor liar, and an all around rotten person.

Re#1 I live in CT, and when I went to bed late election night, the Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Stefanowski was ahead of Democrat Ned Lamont by 19,000 votes with 90% of precincts reporting in. When I awoke, Lamont won the election by almost 44,000 votes. From ONE precinct, Bridgeport. Sound familiar?

Ahem, Senator Bloomin'Idiot, you were clearly at the wrong event...they don't care about the individual worker or individual at all, it is all about the collective.

Blumenthal said, “We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam.” "I wore the uniform in Vietnam and many came back . . . to all kinds of disrespect," Blumenthal told the crowd at a 2008 Veteran's Day parade, according to the Advocate. Not misquoted nor misspoken a lie is a lie.

Not sure what the big deal is. democrats are communists. The evidence that this is fact is undeniable. Just look at how democrats have "progressed" over the last decade, over the last five years, and during these last 332 days of the installed biden regime. I'm sure the intelligence challenged senator from Connecticut is wondering what all the fuss is about. After all, he just went to another democrat rally.

More and more businesses in recent days have walked back previous rules mandating COVID-19 vaccine sas a condition for employment in a bid to keep workers. Earlier this week, Amtrak—a quasi-public corporation—became the latest to rescind its vaccine requirement amid concerns about staff shortages and cut service in January. In a memo sent to staff that was obtained by The Epoch Times, Amtrak CEO William Flynn said the company would do away with the mandate that would have given employees until Jan. 4 to get fully vaccinated or go on unpaid leave. About 500 out of more than 17,000 Amtrak workers remain unvaccinated,

What is behind recent pessimistic appraisals of democracy’s future, from Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Brian Williams and other elite intellectuals, media personalities, and politicians on the Left? Some are warning about its possible erosion in 2024. Others predict the democracy downturn as early 2022, with scary scenarios of “autocracy” and Trump “coups.” To answer that question, understand first what is not behind these shrill forecasts. They are not worried about 2 million foreign nationals crashing the border in a single year, without vaccinations during a pandemic. Yet it seems insurrectionary for a government simply to nullify its own immigration laws.

Texas’s highest court for criminal matters has ruled that the attorney general cannot independently prosecute election cases. In an 8–1 decision Wednesday (pdf), the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals stated, “the Attorney General can prosecute [election cases] with the permission of the local prosecutor but cannot initiate prosecution unilaterally.” At issue is a provision in section 273.021 of the Texas Election Code, which reads, in part, “The attorney general may prosecute a criminal offense prescribed by the election laws of this state.” The court said that the provision violates the separation of powers clause in the Texas Constitution.The ruling was tied to a case involving a southeast Texas sheriff who faced campaign-finance

The Senate has passed a draft of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would forbid the Department of Defense from dishonorably discharging members of the military whose only offense was refusing the vaccine. The bill rider to the larger NDAA package was put forward by Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) to “prevent Joe Biden from dishonorably discharging servicemembers for choosing to not get the COVID vaccine.” The amendment to the NDAA would not protect men and women in the military from being discharged from the military, but it would protect them from the social stigma of a dishonorable discharge, only permitting those who refuse the vaccine to be discharged honorably.

Moderna’s vaccine is typically taken in a two-dose regimen.

To me, this is just jaw-dropping. The Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell made statements today akin to saying the emperor is wearing a beautiful coat. I can share examples, but to really encapsulate the issues it’s actually easier to start by sharing a chart he presented when discussing inflation. Do you notice anything missing in this chart? Look at it carefully.(chart) If you look at it and say: “hey, where’s the actual 2021 data he is talking about“, give yourself a cookie. The guy is talking about the issue of 2021 inflation and expressing his empathy that inflation is running “far ahead” of the federal reserve projections.

Under restrictive nationwide COVID-19 lockdowns, for many people gaming was one of the few active recreations, social activities, and creative outlets available. From 2020 to 2021, revenue for gaming companies skyrocketed. Games corporation Blizzard saw revenues on the first-person shooter game Call of Duty rise by 72 percent, the massive multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORG) World of Warcraft by 7 percent, and apps by subsidiary company King rise by 22 percent. Chinese gaming company Tencent saw its total revenue rise by 25 percent in the same timeframe.

The coronavirus will hit millions of Americans in a "viral blizzard" within a few weeks as infections from the Omicron variant pile on top of Delta, an expert predicts. Already, hospitalizations are rising as the holiday season gets into full swing. Long lines for Covid-19 testing formed Thursday in metro areas, including New York, Boston and Miami. The Delta variant remains a problem.

President Biden said Thursday that Americans unvaccinated against the coronavirus are facing a winter of "severe illness and death." "It’s here now and it’s spreading and it’s going to increase," the president said about the omicron variant while meeting with his coronavirus response team. "For unvaccinated we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death if you’re unvaccinated for themselves, their families, and the hospitals they will soon overwhelm." (Snip) Biden’s warning comes almost a year into his presidency after repeating many times on the campaign trail that he was the candidate who would "shut down the virus"

Let the parade begin! Democrats who see the writing on the wall and who have been around in Congress for a while are seeing this as a good time to pack it in. The latest to retire is five-term Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA). Lowenthal is the 20th Democrat who will be retiring or otherwise moving on at the end of this term. He’s 80 years old and has been serving in political positions since 1992, almost thirty years. Generally, you hear a lot of retirements after the holidays. The fact that there have been so many already has to be worrying the Democrats because there are likely even more coming,

I am not sure who told Chevrolet that what we really needed this Christmas was to ugly cry over an ad they produced for the holidays, but whoever it was needs to go sit in the corner and think about what they’ve done. You may have seen the shortened version of this ad, titled “Holiday Ride,” on TV. But you don’t get the full emotional impact without seeing the extended four-minute version, which is a tear-jerker and hit me harder than listening to my child ask me why Mufasa wasn’t waking up. [Video] All the jokes aside, this ad is possibly one of the most needed

Elon Musk's bizarre feud with a senator and a television host intensified on Thursday, with news anchor Joy Reid accusing him of 'misappropriating black vernacular for misogynistic purposes' by using the insult 'Karen'—and Musk referring to Reid, in turn, as a lobbyist for Elizabeth Warren.(Snip)'Elon wasn't happy, so he did what he always did, and stomped his little feet and insulted Senator Warren,' said Reid. 'Calling her an 'angry mom' and referring to her as Senator Karen. 'So for so many reasons—being a freeloader, and a selfish and disrespectful one, and for misappropriating black vernacular for misogynistic purposes—Elon Musk is the absolute worst.
