Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy unloaded on President Trump just hours before his State of the Union Address Tuesday; bizarrely critiquing the Commander-in-Chief for not solving the Venezuelan political crisis “in two weeks.”
“Trump has compromised our country’s security in a million ways. His Administration is an ongoing foreign policy garbage fire,” tweeted Murphy. “Here’s a quick thread of the national security lies he will likely tell at tonight’s #SOTU and what the real deal is.”
“Trump will pat himself on the back re Venezuela,” he added. “But nothing has happened in 2 weeks since he recognized Guaido. Military support for Maduro hasn’t budged, and if Maduro survives, our feckless play makes us weaker”

The President will deliver his annual State of the Union address Tuesday evening from the House of Representatives. The event was delayed one-week to accommodate the 35-day-long partial government shutdown.
BLUE STATE BLUES: New Jersey Governor to RAISE TAXES on ‘EVERYTHING’
The Democratic Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy unveiled his vision for the state’s proposed budget Wednesday; raising taxes on “everything” in a bid to save the Garden State from ballooning debt and massive budget deficits.
Murphy -the liberal politician who replaced outgoing governor and presidential nominee Chris Christie- plans to fund the state’s record-setting $37.4 billion budget by increasing taxes on nearly everything, including: gambling, ride-sharing services, marijuana, tobacco, online sales, retail sales, and more.
The budget also increases spending for education, transportation services, and state-wide pension funds.
“If we enact another budget like the one our administration inherited, our middle class will continue to be the ones shouldering the burden, while seeing little in return,” Murphy said Tuesday. “A millionaire’s tax is the right thing to do… and now is the time to do it.”
“The proposal, 4.2 percent higher than the current fiscal year’s, relies on a tax for the wealthiest that has yet to be approved and lacks support from key Democrats in the legislature,” writes Bloomberg. “It also reverses pledges from Murphy’s predecessor, Republican Chris Christie, to lower taxes in a state where living costs are among the nation’s highest.”
COLLUSION COLLAPSE: Liberal Senator ADMITS Americans ‘Not Focused’ on Russia Probe
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy shocked his left-wing colleagues this week when he publicly admitted that most voters are “not focused” on special counsel Robert Mueller’s year-long investigation into Russian collusion.
Murphy was commenting in a recent study Wednesday that showed 32% of all voters and a whopping 40% of independent voters “either had no opinion of the special counsel or had never heard of him.”
“Verifies what I find in Connecticut – while political class follows every Mueller twist and turn, tons of swing voters are focused on the same things they always are – health care, wages, education, safety,” tweeted Murphy.

The Senator’s admission flies in the face of the mainstream media and liberal legislators breathless assertions for over one year that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia; raising serious questions over the much-hyped “Blue Wave” predicted for November.
