Democrat Pay Dirt Is Alive And Well In Connecticut


 Can you make money through non public information on companies and industries as an elected official besides your salary and benefits paid for by Taxpayers?  It seems you can, if you are Connecticut Communist/Democrat United States Senator Richard Blumenthal and Connecticut Democrat United States Representative Joe Courtney.  Recently several interesting stock trades were made by these elected officials.  This first came to light by my good friend Tony De Angelo on his weekly segment on the Lee Elci radio show on 94.9 WJJF New London, CT this past week.  He exposed that Connecticut Democrat United States Representative Joe Courtney traded in Peoples United Bank right before their horrific merger with M&T Bank.  This was confirmed on the website capitoltrades.com as a trade of between $15,000 to $50,000 dollars worth of its stock in April.  One must be wondering what Democrat United States Representative Joe Courtney knew about the upcoming merger?  Is this an unethical action and was he trading on insider information not known to the taxpaying public?  Especially when Joe is always quoted as saying, "I never trade in equities."  

But wait! Joe tries to mitigate the effects of this ostensible malfeasance by claiming that it was his investment adviser (and not he) that traded in equities. Joe further claims that "once he discovered the error, he immediately corrected it". Such a statement is both false and misleading as there is no prohibition whatsoever from advisers speaking with clients, nor is there any excuse why a standing order of "do not by direct equities" given to one's adviser could not be universally followed. All of this is either duplicitous or indicative of Joe's ineptitude, (and I will leave it to the reader to draw his or her own conclusions).

Let us move on.

Communist/Democrat United States Senator Richard Blumenthal whose estimated net worth is over $82,000,000. does a great deal of trading according to the same website.  For example Blumenthal has sold a great deal of stock in a company called Radius Global Infrastructure over the past two months.  This company according to its website "is one of the largest international aggregators of rental streams underlying wireless and other communication related sites through the acquisition of real property interests and contractual rights." (radiusglobal.com) Ironically Blumenthal has raised over $500,000 in campaign donations from the Telecom industry according to opensecrets.org.  Why was he selling so much of this stock?   Is this an unethical action and was he trading on insider information not known to the taxpaying public? 

Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is invested in a company called REOF XX LLC.  She has been buying a great deal of this stock over the past year according to her filings.  Her husband is a partner in the company.  This same company received a Paycheck Protection Payment (PPP)  loan of between $1 to $2 million dollars during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Her net worth is listed at over $114,000,000.  I think Taxpayers might be wondering why someone who is worth over $114,000,000 needs a Taxpayer funded loan for their company?  Why are they buying up so much of this stock in a company they own?  Was that loan an unethical action by Pelosi?  Or can it be viewed as business as usual, the pay to play function of our corrupted government in 2022?

There are many more examples of these ties of stock buying and selling by our elected officials that in my opinion are a gross violation of ethics and show the true economic hypocrisy of elected officials especially when dealing with the Democrat Party.  Some banking customers of the now failing merger M&T Bank with People's United still do not have access to their money in this bank.  It has been a financial nightmare for them.  We have received the usual pandering and lip service from the Connecticut Blumenthal/Lamont/Tong trilogy of demanding answers as to what happened.  But we know this is all acting and pantomime  since M&T Bank offered a $25 million dollar investment in Connecticut's communities through its "Amplify Fund" racial equity giving program.  Thus no answers will be forthcoming any time soon.  Bank customers are on their own.  
 
The concept of ethics in government seems to be a lost cause especially with the Biden Administration and the Democrat Party.  Inside trading, campaign donations, one hand washing the other and pay to play are now acceptable tools of our ruling political elite.  Trust me this will not be lost on voters on election day especially the working middle class who are abused daily by a failed government that was in theory elected to represent them not the financial interests of the elected politician.  And it is 1776 all over again.

The Democrat's Open Border Illegal Immigration Crisis Or Liberal Hypocrisy

 Yet another Democrat crisis hits home.  No, it is not the Democrat's illegal drug crisis.  No, it is not the Democrat's education crisis.  No, it is not the Democrat's energy crisis.  No, it is not the Democrat's runaway inflation crisis.  Nor is it the Democrat's supply chain crisis.  This time the Democrat's open border illegal immigration crisis has hit home to the beautiful liberal island of Martha's Vineyard where 50 (count em' 50!) illegal immigrants were sent to by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.  It has been interesting to view and see the reaction by the Democrats that has included immediate condemnation of the Governor for what he did.  Illegal immigrants were also brought to where "Secure Border" Vice President Harris lives in Washington, D.C.  The illegal immigrants in many ways are considered cargo and political tools of the Democrat Party.  We are seeing liberal hypocrisy in action.

I am wondering what Governor DeSantis did that was different than what President Biden did?  First  President Biden proclaimed our country's borders wide open when he took office.  This has created a massive crisis for our country since we now have over 2 million illegal immigrants this year alone to deal with.  President Biden has shipped some of these illegal immigrants through various ways to other parts of the country secretly over the past year.   Arizona, Florida and Texas have taken the brunt end of the crisis and Governors in these states have reached a breaking point.  The unchecked illegal immigration has also brought a new illegal drug crisis since drugs are flowing into our country freely again along with horrific human trafficking issues.  Obviously this does not concern the Democrat Party in their destruction of our country. Democrats want sanctuary cities to show how concerned they are for this type of people.  But when sanctuary cities get these illegal immigrants, the Democrats who run these cities are outraged and demand government help since they are overwhelmed by them.   So what about the states that are really overwhelmed?  Since Republicans run them they don't need any help?  Liberal sanctuary cities seem to be hypocrites in this problem that their Democrat Party created.

In Connecticut, I don't see Governor Lamont taking in any illegal immigrants to his home.  I don't see United States Senators Blumenthal or Murphy taking in any illegal immigrants to their homes.  I don't see United States Representatives Courtney, DeLauro, Hayes, Himes or Larsen taking in any illegal immigrants to their homes.  I don't see State Senator Duff taking in any illegal immigrants to his home.  I don't see Sanctuary City Mayors Bronin, Gamin or Elicker taking in any illegal immigrants to their homes. Why not?  Liberal Connecticut Democrats are hypocrites in this problem that their Democrat Party created.

The other major issue illegal immigrants face is what happens to them? Are they now the new cheap slave labor that the Democrat Party is yearning for to bring the economy back?  Are they being sold into slavery by human traffickers?  Are they being sold into the new illegal drug trade that is overtaking the country?  What is their path for legal citizenship as many of our great grandparents and grandparents went through?  Is it a grand plan for mail order "motor voter"? Is citizenship an option, and why or why not?  Can the United States government keep track and know the whereabouts off all of the illegal immigrants that they allowed into the country since President Biden open our borders?  Where can American Taxpayers find this report if it exists? Why aren't Sanctuary Cities willing and able to take in all of these illegal immigrants?  What were these illegal immigrants told in the first place to make them come here?  That they would be given free food, money, medical care, clothes, housing, transportation, and automatic citizenship?  Who is paying for illegal immigration?  Isn't it the American Taxpayer?   Why is this happening, and what benefit does our country get from this humanitarian crisis of its own making?

What is the solution to yet another incompetent Democrat Party created crisis that is helping to destroy our country?  Could it possibly be a closed United States border and a well researched legal immigration process to become an United States citizen?  And that this program takes in only a limited amount of people each year?  Can any United States Representative and or Senator come up with this legislation and override the horrific and inhumane program that President Biden created?  

In my opinion and many others the Democrat Party has reached a new low with this crisis showing their inability to lead our state and country.  It shows also the true hypocrisy and serial incompetence of the Democrat Party and liberals in general.  These illegal immigrants are the new slaves and pawns of the Democrat Party.  This entire issue was avoidable.  I still don't understand why the Democrat Party hates our country and hides under the guise of being caring and humanitarian.  Because they are not either.  They are all about power.  Power that needs to be given back to the working men and women of our country who have been condemned, faulted and insulted one too many times, by the Democrat Party.  

And it is 1776 all over again.

Connecticut's Public Education Crisis Needs A Solution

 There are many problems with Connecticut's public education.  An education that is provided by local governments from Kindergarten through 12th grade for all children.  At one time Connecticut had a strong public education system.  It stressed a coherent pattern of subjects that guided a student in his or her learning journey, building from one grade to the next with the skills and tools essential to learn many different subjects, many different skills and many different learning tools.  The student would gain a strong education that would prepare them when they graduated High School.  At one time, our public schools graduated students who had a strong balance of knowledge in many different subject areas such as the Arts, English, a Foreign Language including Latin, History, Physical/Health Education, Math, Music, Science, and Social Science.  Students were taught how to analyze, logically think, and the function of decision making and its consequences.  There was a respect between students and teachers along with a great deal of parental involvement and responsibility found in the schools.  Some students went to college, some students went on to learn a trade, some students did fail, but for the most part those who wanted to learn did and excelled in their lives be it with a college degree or a working trade.  Students went on to marry and raise families and the cycle of life moved forward.  Connecticut and America were able to move forward from generation to generation.

What happened?  In 2022 we are facing a complete implosion of our public education system.  It is failing at all grades and at all levels. It has evolved into an indoctrination of an incoherent mess of illogical liberal thought that features gender change, critical race theory, white supremacy, a rewritten history to fulfill a socialistic agenda, biological boys competing against girls in sports, an obsession about sexual orientation, and a total lack of respect and regard for the parents of school aged children.   Teachers are chosen based on their religion, political belief, and race rather than their abilities to actually teach.  This has been admitted through the recent exposure of the prejudice in hiring practices in Greenwich, CT.  Students during the Covid-19 crisis missed almost two years of school with online learning and the mandatory mask mandate they had when attending schools in person.  The lack of learning along with both the physical and psychological damage done to our children because of these draconian measures will be felt for decades.   Inner city schools are a horrific mess with many students failing in the classroom only to be passed on to the next grade while many inner city students have stopped going to schools all together.  And inner city school administrators apparently are at a loss to do anything about this.  Thus our public school systems are failing our students, our parents, the Connecticut Taxpayers who have to pay taxes to support this education debacle and our society as a whole by graduating ill equipped and ill prepared students.  

What are the solutions, if any?  The line seems to have been drawn in the sand with regards to Connecticut's public education system.   The Connecticut Democrat Party led by Ned Lamont want to continue indoctrination into a incoherent mess of illogical liberal thought that features gender change, critical race theory, white supremacy, a rewritten history to fulfill a socialistic agenda, biological boys competing against girls in sports, an obsession about sexual orientation, and a total lack of respect and regard for the parents of school aged children.   The union that represents public education teachers seem also to back this agenda as they have not spoken out against it.  The Connecticut Republican Party with Gubernatorial candidate Bob Stefanowski has offered an alternative with their courageous "Parental Bill of Rights" (bobforgovernor.com/2022/09/06/stefanowski-devlin-announce-parental-bill-of-rights/).  This platform is a start towards a solution in bringing back a more coherent and functional public education system by once again empowering parents over the raising of their children from more school choices such as magnet, charter and technical schools to decision about health and care for their children.  To me it is a breath of fresh air as common sense can start to be brought back for parents, students and the public education system.  Again this is a start, and I recommend all to read it.  The condemnation of this platform by Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party was expected.  But remember that Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party has nurtured this education debacle and embrace its failures.  Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party wish to control our children and make them enmesh and entrap these failed liberal ideas that are damaging our state and country.  Why have so many parents pulled their children out of public schools over the past two years?

As someone who has taught college level students for 40 years now I have seen a general decline in students as to both their learning skills and an ability to learn.  I have many students who are successful in class but sadly I have many who are not.  What is public education trying to teach?  To me it is no longer a strong balance of knowledge in many different subject areas, but an incoherent rhetoric that does nothing to prepare our children for their future.  Connecticut and our country in general will be hard pressed in the future if public education continues on this failed politically correct curriculum.  We will fast become a nation that is bankrupt as far as careers, technical skills, and family values.  Our economy will not be functioning.  Are these the children we want as our future leaders?  I do not think so.

Parents must raise their children.  Government should not be raising our children.  Public schools should not be brainwashing our children.  Children must be able to have a coherent environment in order to learn and to be able to think.  This are not theories these are facts.  Those who teach and are experts in their field should be hired even if they are Catholic or conservative.  Once again we have yet another example of failed Connecticut Democrat Party policies.  The system is broken and needs to be repaired immediately.  Children are not pawns of our political system.

And guess who has to clean up their debris and rubble?  We know it will not be Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party.  And it is 1776 all over again.

Ned Lamont And The Connecticut Democrat Party Lies For The Election

 Lies are not truth no matter what Ned Lamont and his Connecticut Democrat Party try to spin them as.  Listening to the Ned Lamont campaign and its boasts, one wonders what state and country it is talking about.  Since there are few brave investigative journalists in the state, the lies need to be addressed.

Here are some lies for the election:  The state economy is bouncing back, new jobs are being created, new businesses are forming!  Bouncing back from what?  There are 36,500 less jobs today than there were when Ned and his company became Governor four years ago.  Also, Connecticut has only regained 80% of the jobs it has lost since the 2008 Great Recession.  Thus in 14 years since the 2008 Great Recession, the state continues to struggle and continues to be a bottom five state in the country, as far as its economy and job creation is concerned.  It is the same thing for the state Gross Domestic Product that has dropped while the rest of the country's has gone up.  While we are at it, Ned Lamont stated, and then apparently took back the lie that he did not raise taxes. The amount of new taxes that were enacted in his administration were astronomical given the economic conditions the state has been in.  One tax in particular will help to raise the cost of living dramatically in the state has been the truck mileage tax, which now assesses trucks driving through the state even more since all vehicles weighing more than 26,000 pounds will be required to pay a vehicle miles traveled tax for every mile driven in the state. The tax ranges from 2.5 cents per mile for trucks weighing 26,000-28,000 pounds to 17.5 cents per mile for vehicles weighing more than 80,000 lbs.  That fact seems to be overlooked in Lamont's lies on new taxes.  Who gets to pay this new tax?  Of course all Connecticut residents who use a service in the state involving a truck and users of products delivered by a truck.  Higher retail prices are in store for consumers thanks to this Ned Lamont new tax.  Again Connecticut has one of the highest tax rates in the country.  Connecticut's tax system ranks 47th overall on according to the 2022 State Business Tax Climate Index. (taxfoundation.org). This is the record that Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party have lied to you about during this election.

The Sema4 question still has not gotten answered.  What was the role of the Lamont's family hedge fund with Sema 4? How was there no conflict of interest seen between the Governor and this company?  Is there any accountability for it and or questioning by any state oversight agency as to the money spent?  Again we still do not have answers from two years ago as to the companies that have had investments made in them by Oak HC/FT Partners relating to the Covid-19 crisis include "Thermo Fisher Scientific", "Sema 4", " Core Infomatics", "Ocrulus", "Urjanet", "1life Healthcare", "Galileo Health", "Castlight Health", "Paladina Health", and "VillageMD" to name some.   They seem to all have ties to Connecticut also in the form of contracts to do business with the State of Connecticut, its non profits, or surrounding states via no bid contracts.  Connecticut Taxpayers deserve answers from Ned Lamont, not more lies on this.

Another lie is a fair and equitable public school system for the youth of the state.  Connecticut's youth have suffered dramatically during the Covid-19 crisis by not being able to show their faces, not having classes in person, and being basically prisoners in their own homes.  Today, more and more evidence shows the damage these draconian rules did to a generation of our children.  It really did not make them safe from anything and there are many new severe issues for our youth with depression, drug abuse and suicides being dealt with.  Ned Lamont's policies did a great deal of damage.  The new lie that was just exposed this week by Project Veritas was the discrimination against teachers who are of the Catholic religion and or have conservative values/ideas in a school in Greenwich, CT.  The bombshell video looks at the  Greenwich Public School System but has overtones to many school districts in the state who in all probability do the same thing.  Last I knew we still had freedom of religion in our country.  This discrimination is horrific and continues a real vote of no confidence whatsoever in the Connecticut Taxpayer funded public school systems.  Between politically motivated teachings of ultra liberalism and liberal thought to gender change and grotesque sexuality, our public schools are a failure.  Is this what we really want our schools to be teaching our children?  This lie of employment discrimination that is illegal in Connecticut shows the massive disrespect school administrators have for their students and parents in these schools.  The spin on this video was expected by the Attorney General and his Democrat Party.  How long will Mr. Tong wait to genuinely investigate this situation?  Until after the election I assume.  It is just more lies being force fed by Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party.

This is just a random sampling of lies presented by Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party.  I know the majority of hard working Connecticut taxpayers do not support this charade called state government have had enough of the lies, the mind control, the forced economic slavery of excessive taxation to support a bloated state government that destroys basically anything it touches.  Liberals can defend Democrats all they want.  However we still have in Connecticut massive crime, theft, murders, runaway inflation,  home winter heating costs that are not affordable, a failed public school system, an overpaid state unionized workforce with salaries/benefits not seen anywhere in the economy, an illegal drug crisis killing our youth, and Connecticut's short and long term debt along with unfunded liabilities of $150 billion dollars.  That is an amazing record to run for re-election on.  It is the truth that Ned Lamont and his Democrat Party is running on.  Failures everywhere and a destruction of the state that once was know as the "Constitution State", but now known as the "Destruction State", since its ethics, its economic vibrancy, its private business, its educational system and its people have been destroyed by a failed liberal Democrat agenda.  Remember that when you vote on Election Day.  And its is 1776 all over again.

Where Are The Answers to Sema4 And Ned Lamont? Connecticut Taxpayers Would Like To Know

 Connecticut state government is a complex instrument that spends enormous amounts of Connecticut Taxpayers monies especially for a state as small as Connecticut.  An average citizen has a difficult time trying to see and understand how and where their monies get spent by our government.  To me, it is meant to be complex and confusing on purpose so that average citizens can not question government officials especially when transactions look suspicious and deceptive.  An example is the continuing saga of Sema4, Mount Sinai Genomics and their ties to Ned Lamont's family hedge fund, no bid state contracts for Covid-19 testing, no-bid Genomics testing and a $15 million dollar 2% interest only sweetheart loan made to them by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development.  My good friend Tony De Angelo on his weekly segment on the Lee Elci radio show on 94.9 WJJF New London, CT has been talking about these payments for over two years now and I have written about them on several occasions. 

With respect to the above, known to just a few is a Third Amendment to a state support agreement signed on April 14, 2021, between the State, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and Mount Sinai Genomics/Sema 4 amending the original support agreement made between these parties back in 2018.  In the 2018 original agreement, Mount Sinai Genomics guaranteed payment of $9.5 million of the $15,000,000 state funded loan to Sema4.  However, this Third Amendment releases Mount Sinai Genomics from the loan and its payment, leaving faltering Sema4 to pay its own debts, and if that does not work, the loan then becomes a casualty to taxpayers.  In case you have not been following in the news Sema4 is shutting down all operations in Connecticut, laying 250 employees off and moving now to Maryland in a huge "pump and dump" disappearing act well-known to Connecticut Taxpayers  What becomes even more hard to understand for common citizens is the relationship of Mount Sinai Genomics/Sema4 to Ned Lamont's family hedge fund, their investments in the company and profits they have earned.  And an even more troubling question is what is being done from the forced Genomics testing that they did on Connecticut citizens: why do they own this data, for what purpose and at what profit to the company?  But for Tony De Angelo wrestling these documents from the Connecticut Department of Health, no citizen would ever know this despicable practice had even occurred.

Is this a conflict of interest for Ned Lamont's family hedge fund, Mount Sinai Genomics/Sema4, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development that a Governor in office can allow this type of agreement to be in effect and apparently loans can be forgiven while profits are made all during a "crisis" that still seems to be in effect in the state two years later?  Is this a conflict of interest for Ned Lamont's family hedge fund, Mount Sinai Genomics/Sema4, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development that a Governor in office can allow Sema4 to shut down and move out of the state, and in essence default legally on its loan?  Is this a conflict of interest for Ned Lamont's family hedge fund, Mount Sinai Genomics/Sema4, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development that a Governor in office can allow all of these agreements to be shrouded in secrecy and only be extricated by legal pressure?  

For two years the Ned Lamont and Connecticut Democrat Party Covid-19 crisis and debacle continues.  Apparently many questions go unanswered daily on this issue and many others that cost Connecticut Taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars.  Connecticut still has $150 billion dollars in short and long term debt and unfunded liabilities.  It is an economically bereft state with high taxes, poor infrastructure, economically incoherent state union labor agreements, high crime, theft and murders, rampant illegal drug trafficking and drug abuse, and a lack of ethics spewing out of its Governor's office.  This issue needs to be resolved and Connecticut Taxpayers need an answer now.  All state no bid Covid-19 contracts between Ned Lamont's family hedge fund companies and the state need to be reviewed and made public.  What is happening is an excellent example of how our state government has failed its citizens.  It can not be made to look like it is ethical because it is not and never was.  Connecticut taxpayers have been lied to since Ned Lamont took office.  Where are the answers?  Many want to know. 

And it is 1776 all over again.

The $45,150,000 Ned Lamont Sema-4 Debacle For Connecticut Taxpayers

 What's another $45,150,000 to Connecticut Taxpayers who are already in debt for roughly $150 billion dollars of short and long term debt along with unfunded liabilities at this time?  The $45,150,000 is what Sema 4 has been able to obtain with little to no oversight in Covid-19 and Genomics testing from the State of Connecticut.  Loans and unknown billings and payments that in many cases continue not to be reconciled nor disclosed as of today.  This is all public information as found on the website: (/opencheckbook.ct.gov/#!/year/All%20Years/explore/0-/vendor/SEMA4+GENOMICS/1/service).  My good friend Tony De Angelo on his weekly segment on the Lee Elci radio show on 94.9 WJJF New London, CT has been talking about these payments for over two years now and I have written about them on several occasions.  Incredibly Sema 4 is now laying people off.  250 Connecticut employees were laid off and the Branford location will be closing at the end of the year.  They apparently are moving to Maryland.

But wait! What about the State of Connecticut loan of $15 million dollars to this politically connected company?  Will that be repaid?  Or was it a typical Connecticut Democrat Party loan that does not need to be paid back nor accounted for in the corrupted political world of Connecticut since it apparently was approved in secret?   Why are many of the invoices that Sema 4 was paid for still not reconciled in the state ledger?  What did Sema 4 do with the State of Connecticut loan money?  What was the role of the Lamont's family hedge fund with Sema 4 and how was there no conflict of interest seen between the Governor and this company?  Is there any accountability for it and or questioning by any state oversight agency as to the money spent?  We still do not have answers from two years ago as to the companies that have had investments made in them by Oak HC/FT Partners relating to the Covid-19 crisis include "Thermo Fisher Scientific", "Sema 4", " Core Infomatics", "Ocrulus", "Urjanet", "1life Healthcare", "Galileo Health", "Castlight Health", "Paladina Health", and "VillageMD" to name a few.   They seem to all have ties to Connecticut also in the form of contracts to do business with the State of Connecticut, its non profits, or surrounding states via no bid contracts.  Connecticut Taxpayers still do not how much profit was made by Oak HC/FT Partners and the Lamont family  from these contracts and or companies.  What about a securities fraud law firm, asking for an investigation of Sema4 Holdings Corp. on behalf of its investors this past week?  Again why is this not an issue in the current campaign for Governor?  Why can't Connecticut Taxpayers get answers?

Why does corporate welfare continue in Connecticut?  Do Connecticut Taxpayers and the economy gain anything other than lies and smoke screens from corporate welfare?  What purpose and economic value did the $45,150,000 worth of payments provide Connecticut Taxpayers?  Why was Sema 4 given a $15, 000,000 loan only to have their business decline, lay workers off and basically move out of state?  No questions asked by any elected official in the state about this.  

Truth continues to be in short supply with Ned Lamont, his family's hedge fund and the Connecticut Democrat Party.  Ned Lamont really needs to come clean with the secret web he has woven around his financial interests financed by the Connecticut Taxpayers.  The Connecticut Democrat party lead by  Ned Lamont apparently feels that Connecticut Taxpayers need to be enslaved by them and their financial interests.  The Connecticut Democrat party led by Ned Lamont created a great deal  of economic damage because of their Covid-19 restrictions, decrees and ruthless shutdowns of the states economy.  They decided  it was OK for for those elderly and ill trapped in homes and rehab centers due to their incoherent "health and safety" guidelines to die a slow death from Covid-19.  It is sickening what this state has gone through because of these policies.  The failures of Ned Lamont can not be seen nor spoken about by the state run media as his only concern has been making a buck off Connecticut Taxpayers.  Enough is enough.

And it is 1776 all over again

Why Can't Poor People Feel Safe In Democrat Controlled Crime Infested Connecticut Cities?

Does anyone think that poor people who live in the most crime infested cities in Connecticut feel safe?  I am talking about those people who are poor even  though they may be working, elderly on fixed incomes and or those who are disabled that are forced to live in the crime driven cities of Bridgeport, Hartford and or New Haven.  I am not talking about the illegal drug dealers, slum lords and or criminals that walk freely and are never prosecuted for their crimes in these same streets.  Three cities that are all led by the Democrat Party and three cities that have received massive bailouts over the years financed by Connecticut Taxpayers.  What really has this never ending Democrat one party rule help provide them?  Massive crime?  Massive illegal drug dealing, illegal drug use and drug overdoses too numerous to mention?  The same inhumane living conditions that have been part of these cities since the 1970's?  Failing schools where students are pushed through grades to be promoted even though they can not master basic reading and writing skills?  I really wonder sometimes why the Connecticut Democrat Party wants to inflict these substandard and horrific living conditions on these poor people while they live in their sheltered police protected worlds of gated homes and communities.  While those who are poor even  though they may be working, elderly on fixed incomes and or those who are disabled, must live a lawless inferno of crime, drugs and murders in these same cities, and fear for their lives daily.  

However I still know Connecticut citizens who have lived and worked their entire lives in these cities and still somehow believe in their cities and are still living and working there.  I also know many who have fled to much safer places both in and out of Connecticut.  Having taught at an inner city Community College in New Haven for many years I saw a general decline first hand in the city.   I also had many minority students ask me for career advice so that they could get out of the slums of their city and lead a better life.  For many years on the first two nights of class I would bring in notebooks, paper, binders and supplies to give out to the students and I would never come home with anything left.  On the last night of class I would lecture my students as to never being broke, to depend on themselves to be successful and at the end of the lecture I would give them Presidential dollar coins for both themselves and children/grandchildren (if they had any) telling them that they can and will succeed in life and never be broke.   I tried to help them as best I could as I could see the helplessness on many of their faces.  I did have several students in these classes become great success stories in that they were able to graduate from college, have a successful career and raise their loving families.  Many left the cities they were born in.  They left the dysfunctional,  debilitated and politically poisoned cities of their youth knowing these cities are not getting better any time soon.    Also I am saddened to know that many of my students could not handle college and quit, failed and or dropped out.  I can never forget one of the last times I left my night class from that same inner city Community College in New Haven while I was going to my car (I no longer teach there), I was shocked.  I saw the waste of a city with homeless people on the sidewalks, being asked for money by panhandlers and individuals who in my opinion needed psychological help.  To me it was both sad and pathetic.  Why did it get this bad? 

Why have these cities descended into this cesspool of crime forcing those people who are poor even  though they may be working, elderly on fixed incomes and or those who are disabled that are forced to live there fearing for their lives daily?  I am fascinated by the Democrat multi-millionaire politicians who rule Connecticut such as Ned Lamont, Richard Blumethal and Rosa DeLauro and have been in power for years really could care less for these poor people.  Because if they really cared they would be advocates of enforcing criminal laws and prosecuting criminals, supporting the police forces of these communities not de-funding them, eliminating illegal drugs flowing into those cities by cartels who now roam free at our borders by closing our borders, and getting people essential psychological help who now are allowed to live in squalor on the streets rather than micromanaging Covid-19 for their own financial and political benefit.  It is pathetic.

Changes are essential in Connecticut's large crime infested cities.  People who are poor even  though they may be working, elderly on fixed incomes and or those who are disabled that are forced to live in these same cities deserve the same freedom from crime that our Democrat multi-millionaire politicians who rule Connecticut such as Ned Lamont, Richard Blumethal and Rosa DeLauro enjoy in their gated security based compounds.  Again crime, murder, and illegal drug use should not be the norm and an inherent part of people lives who live in the cities.  That is why we used to have a legal system to address crime, murder and illegal drugs but in 2022 we apparently no longer have this luxury in the state.  Somehow in theory liberalism eliminated all these bad things in our cities while in reality liberalism has only made it worse.

I think many people are fed up with these ruthless violations of both their personal freedoms and safety that happen on a daily basis.  They want answers not more lies being force fed them daily by elitist politicians who have little perception of reality.  They want a chance at a better life. Why can't they have it?  Why are they suppressed and always conquered by carpetbagging politicians?  

 And it is 1776 all over again.
