Just today, the gun grabbing Connecticut governor and former Mayor of welfare stronghold Stamford Dannel Malloy, after signing into law an increase in the state’s minimum wage to $10.10 by 2017, announced he will seek a second term in office.
This hero of the fake left media paradigm and union stooge’s announcement came as somewhat of a surprise (REALLY?). He said he would make an official announcement when the legislative session is over in May. Then again despots like him and his hero Obama always seem to want to move the goalposts.
Think CT’s budget is balanced under Malloy? THINK AGAIN!
The increase of the state’s minimum wage to $10.10 by 2017 will result in JOB LOSSES.
Taxes have gone way up in CT making it one of the worst states in the nation for taxpayers…a total joke thanks to the welfare whores and an overall bad economic policy backed by the private central bank the Federal Reserve.
The Vote No for Dan Malloy in 2014 Facebook page offers up far more examples of how bad progressives like Malloy and some in the GOP have made this state.
Also, and perhaps like one of his heroes Obama or even FDR, Malloy has stacked the courts with his leftist backers. Of the nominees to fill spots on the State Superior Court and two judges looking to serve on the Appellate Court, Malloy picked from a list given to him by the Judicial Selection Commission 18 Democrats and absolutely zero Republicans.
In its approving editorial, the state’s so-called paper of record, The Tribune-owned Hartford Courant remarked “The dramatic partisan imbalance in Mr. Malloy’s class of 18 doesn’t necessarily mean any of those nominated are unqualified to serve. Each was, in fact, found qualified after an investigation by the Judicial Selection Commission, which prepares a list from which the governor chooses his nominees.”
The editorial went on to commend like a good little leftist lemming Malloy for having “done better in his four Supreme Court nominees.” He picked a Republican, an independent and two Democrats” one of whom, the controversial homosexual lobbyist Andrew McDonald, was co-chair of the General Assembly’s Judiciary Committee, serving alongside another Stamford homosexual lobbyist Michael Lawlor, who is Malloy’s Prison Czar. Lawlor has been cited by Mike Vanderboegh of Alabama on the blog Sipsey Street Irregulars for his extreme leftist and anti-gun ties as well as working for the KGB during the Cold War.
I note that while you were at UConn in 1977 you “participated in language studies in Russia in 1977” at Moscow and Leningrad. You then earned a Master’s Degree in Soviet Area Studies from the University of London in 1981. You were, what, 20 when you first experienced the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War? It must have fascinated you early on in life. Yet after you got your Masters in Soviet Area Studies from the University of London at a time when that and other British universities were prime recruiting grounds for KGB “political warfare” assets, and you subsequently “received a Fulbright-Hays Scholarship to study economic reform in Hungary in 1982,” you decided to change course and become, in quick succession, a lawyer, a prosecutor and then a Democrat Party politician.
Why the change, Mike?
Your KGB file might provide some clues along those lines, of course. I had a long chat with a former CIA Cold Warrior who is intimately familiar with the KGB infiltration and subversion tactics of the time of your stay in the Soviet Union. He says that you certainly have a KGB file and had a KGB officer assigned to your case with the object of making an asset of you. No one from the United States got into the Soviet Union back then without the close inspection of the KGB. NO ONE.
And what would the KGB be looking for, I asked? “A lot of dewy-eyed kids were going to the Soviet Union back then with this fascination for the other side. They thought the Vietnam War proved the evil nature of American society and they wanted to see what the other side was like. So they (the KGB) would look for someone with those misconceptions and then look for other vulnerabilities. And their recruitment operations were vast. VAST.” What other vulnerabilities? I asked.
And then there is the matter of Former State Senator Len Suzio, who about two weeks ago called for Lawlor’s resignation in regards to the state’s Early Release program.
“Mike Lawlor has consistently used equivocal statistics to bamboozle the media and mislead the public about this dangerous law. But no statistic can cover up the fact that at least 3 Early Release convicts have been implicated in the murder of innocent citizens. Only 2 weeks ago I accompanied the grieving family of Ibrahim Ghazal to Court to watch the sentencing of Frankie “the Razor” Resto, a violent criminal let loose under Early Release, who had pleaded guilty to the cold-blooded murder of their husband and father. Mr. Lawlor’s phony statistics are no comfort to the Ghazal family,” Suzio said.
“The most sacred responsibility of law makers and law enforcers is to protect our families against violent criminals such as Frankie ‘the Razor’ Resto. Equally important is for public officials to be honest with the public. Undersecretary Mike Lawlor has failed the public on both counts. Today, I call upon Mike Lawlor to resign from office. As the chief architect and front line defender of this flawed and dangerous law Mr. Lawlor ought to pay the price and resign from office.”
“I call upon the Legislature to immediately repeal ‘Early Release’ for all violent convicts. Every day our families are exposed to dangerous criminals who have been sprung from Connecticut prisons to prey upon the innocent. It’s time to recognize that this law is flawed and dangerous and must be repealed.”
This after Malloy eliminated the Death Penalty during his regime. Of course the corporate run media in the state…

Malloy joins Lee Whitnum, the only other declared Democrat in the race. There are six Republicans in the race including two-time Attorney General nominee Republican Martha Dean, neocons Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, 2010 gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley, Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti, state Senate Minority Leader John McKinney and 1st District Congressional nominee, and pro-second amendment supporter Joseph Visconti. Neocon Toni Boucher dropped out recently.
The last incumbent governor to lose re-election was Republican John Lodge for whom I-95 was named the Governor John Davis Lodge Turnpike 60 years ago. The last governor re-elected was corrupt-riddled neocon John Rowland in 2002 while the last Democratic governor re-elected was liberal William O’Neill in 1986. O’Neill took over for Ella Grasso after her death from cancer in 1981.
I will end this post with a warning to this state I have lived in and struggled as a mildly autistic man of 40 and its zombie voters…RE-ELECT MALLOY AND I WILL MOVE OUT OF HERE TO NEW HAMPSHIRE! THAT’S A PROMISE!
