Advice From Aspen on Connecticut Heat Wave.

The Democratic Governors Association is meeting in Aspen. The beleaguered head of the money raising, influence peddling organization, Governor Dannel P. Malloy, has advice on how to cope with Connecticut’s heat wave from his luxury perch in Aspen, where it’s a delightful 70 degrees.

Here’s Malloy’s advice for those who haven’t flown to Aspen and paid a big fee to sit in the audience at a bogus “policy panel.”


        Residents can call 2-1-1 to find their closest cooling center

(HARTFORD, CT) – With excessive heat forecasted to continue over the next few days and heat advisories issued for most of the state, Governor Dannel P. Malloy is asking people to take precautions and to call 2-1-1 if they need information on cooling centers in their town or city.

 The current forecast is calling for hot and very humid conditions to continue today through Sunday with highs in the mid 90’s and the heat index between 100 – 110 F range. 

“High temperatures can be dangerous for your health, especially for the elderly, young children, and people who work outside,” Governor Malloy said. “Remember to keep cool and follow common sense. Please drink lots of water, stay in the shade, and monitor those who are at greatest risk when temperatures are extremely high.”

Mittens By a Mile.

State Representative Jason Perillo has won his local primary by a staggering 10-1 margin. The Shelton Republican defeated Ruth Parkins 1,051 to 109.

The size of the victory may cause Perillo’s local Republican tormentors to abandon their futile quest to harass and dump him.

Shalom: Republican Carter to Boost Bona Fides on Mission to Israel.

Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Dan Carter will head to Tel Aviv Sunday in search of facts. The three term state legislator announced his mission on Friday afternoon. Carter hopes to join the ranks of Republicans in Washington who are the Middle East’s only democracy’s most reliable supporters in contrast to the Obama administration’s escalating hostility. 
Carter announced his trip with this statement:

BETHEL, CT: Today, Republican US Senate Candidate Dan Carter announced he will embark on a fact finding mission to Tel Aviv, Israel. 
“With so much uncertainty in the world I’m eager to travel to Israel to meet with leaders and dignitaries to discuss national security, and the global war on terror. 
“My years of service in the military taught me that policies made from behind a desk or a politician’s microphone don’t always deliver desired results. 
“I’m going to talk with leaders representing one of our nation’s greatest allies to better understand how we can work together to solve some of the world’s greatest problems.” 
Representative Carter arrives in Tel Aviv, Israel Monday and returns to Connecticut

SEEC Set for Wednesday Surrender.

Expect the State Elections Enforcement to adopt the terms of its surrender to the state’s Democtatic committee at a Wednesday morning. The SEEC is expected to end its investigation of illegal campaign spending by state Democrats on behalf of Democratic Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s 2014 re-election campaign.

The SEEC will take the unusual step of ending its investigation before obtaining evidence it has deemed crucial to upholding its public trust. The commission has been engaged in an extended battle to obtain emails exchanged among Malloy and a host of party operatives.

What price betrayal? We will begin to find out on Wednesday.

Pat Longo to Exit Republican National Committee–Stage Right.

Republican stalwart Pat Longo will not not seek another term as Connecticut’s Republican National Committeewoman. The Wilton Republican has served in party positions since 1961. She was elected to the RNC in 2007, after 14 years as the state party’s vice chair. In 2004, Longo made a brave run for the RNC against a crumbling Rowland administration favorite while many others were silent–or worse–in the face of corruption. 

Greenwich Republican fundraiser Leora Levy, a Ted Cruz supporter, is expected to make a bid for The beloved Longo’s seat.
