NRA-ILA - Joe Biden: Hero Who Ended Texas Rampage Shouldn’t Have Had His Gun

Joe Biden: Hero Who Ended Texas Rampage Shouldn’t Have Had His Gun
Most Americans consider Stephen Willeford a hero for bravely ending the rampage of a crazed murderer at a Texas church … but not former Vice President Joe Biden. During a national television appearance on Monday, Biden dismissed the Texan’s valorous actions, going so far as to say he shouldn’t have been carrying the AR-15 he used to stop the killer.

Terry McAuliffe’s Halfway Heroism
Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has recently been distinguished by Governing magazine as one of its “Public Officials of the Year.” According to the magazine, Gov. McAuliffe claims his “proudest single achievement” in office has been restoring voting rights to felons.

Red Notes From a Blue State - The Reformers Club, A Satire

Overheard in the MidRoad Diner during a meeting of the Reformers Club
The difference between God and Governor Malloy --“God is less concerned than [Daniel] Malloy when people question Him.”
Those early body-building pics of Republican House leader Themis Klarides circulating in the desk drawers of oppo-researchers -- “I’m still waiting for one of Connecticut’s opinionators to write, maybe in a column, that Klarides can easily bench-press many of her political opponents. She likes sports, contact sports too. Otherwise, why would she have gotten involved in politics?”
Malloy and Joe Aresimowicz [Speaker of the Democratic Party hegemon in the State House] – “… worms in the apple of reform.”
Connecticut’s millionaires
A: “It may be the first time in a decade that there are no millionaires running for high office in Connecticut. Couple of felons in Bridgeport though, not that there’s anything wrong with that.
B: “Some of the millionaires have left and moved back to New York. Can you believe it? Andrew Cuomo’s New York, Bill de Blasio’s New York. By the way, what’s with the Frenchification of the Italian name?
A: “He took his mother’s maiden name in 2002. His father, Warren Wilhelm, had a problem with alcoholism and left the family when Bill was seven. So he waited, let’s see, 31 years to change his name. Better late than never I guess. There are plenty of Italians in New York, and if you’re running for office… But, interesting you should mention millionaires. Two of the seven members of Connecticut’s U.S. Congressional Delegation are millionaires many times over. [Dick] Blumenthal made his millions the old fashion way – through marriage. (Rosa) DeLauro too. No Frenchification there; she caps the “D”.
St. Murphy -- “Don’t know what it is – his face or his policies, but [U.S. Senator Chris] Murphy just

Trump - Week 43: Making Our Economy Great Again!



During his historic trip to Asia, President Trump demonstrated his strength and leadership on the world stage once again. In his meetings with world leaders, the President fought for fair and reciprocal trade agreements, working to end years of imbalanced trade that has left too many Americans behind. The President also secured new business deals with sales by American companies totaling at least $300 billion that will produce new jobs for American workers. As he reported on the success of his trip, including making progress to advance peace and prosperity in Asia, the President said it best: “America is back!”

Make America Great Again


The President secured a big victory for working men and women on Thursday, when the House passed his historic tax reform plan. This plan will make our economy competitive again, creating millions of jobs and providing a pay raise to middle class families. Now it’s the Senate’s turn. We look forward to seeing Senate Republicans work closely with the administration to uphold President Trump’s promise to deliver the biggest tax cut in American history as soon as possible. Call your Senators today and tell them to VOTE YES on President Trump’s tax reform plan.
