COURTNEY, BLUMENTHAL AND MURPHY ORCHESTRATE PROMOTION FOR THEIR FRIEND
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 16, 2013) — A press release from the Connecticut Secretary of State’s office declared that Connecticut State Representative Bryan Hurlburt will resign his position in the General Assembly effective Friday at noon. The reason for his resignation was not provided in the press release; however, Hurlburt announced on his government website that Obama has appointed him “Farm Service Agency Director.”
The Secretary of State’s press release can be read here: 4.16.13 Hurlburt Resignation
By state law, the governor will appoint an interim representative, with a special election to take place within 56 days of Hurlburt’s resignation.
Hurlburt’s announcement states, in part:
U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and U.S. Congressman Joe Courtney (D-2) announced today the appointment of State Representative Bryan Hurlburt (D-53) as Farm Service Agency State Executive Director. Hurlburt was appointed by President Obama. He was recommended by Senators Blumenthal and Murphy and Congressman Courtney after an interview process coordinated by Senator Blumenthal’s office with state agricultural leaders.
The Farm Service Agency is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Hurlburt will oversee monies from the agency directed to Connecticut’s farmers. His district of Ashford, Willington and Tolland is close to the University of Connecticut in Storrs, which began as an agricultural school for boys in 1881.
Hurlburt had worked for Murphy when he was a state senator. Murphy ran against Linda McMahon in November for U.S. Senate and reportedly won. On April 11, Murphy wrote a letter to News Corporation’s CEO, Rupert Murdoch, asking him not to broadcast a NASCAR race taking place in Texas and sponsored by the National Rifle Association in light of the Newtown shooting last December. Murphy wrote, in part:
The race not only brings national attention to an organization that has been the face of one side of this heated debate, it also features the live shooting of guns at the end of the race. This celebration of guns is inappropriate in the immediate wake of the Newtown massacre. But most importantly, broadcasting this race, which will highlight the NRA and its radical agenda during this time, sends a harmful signal to the families affected by gun violence, as well as the millions of Americans who support sensible gun control measures and enjoy your sports programming.
In his letter to Murdoch, Murphy called the NRA “radical” and “extreme.” Of himself, Murphy said:
As a senator, I can tell you that many of us possess the courage, and will strongly advocate for sensible gun reforms to take assault weapons and high-capacity magazines off our streets and require all gun purchasers to submit for a background check.
Fox Sports broadcast the race as planned.
Murphy does not appear to have the courage to ask questions about the forgery “broadcast” on the White House website for the past two years as an official document showing Obama was born in Hawaii. A law enforcement investigation has determined that the image is a “computer-generated forgery,” along with Obama’s Selective Service registration form.
Congressman Joseph Courtney, who represents Connecticut’s Second Congressional District, has not responded to The Post & Email’s last communication which stated unequivocally that the image presented as Obama’s long-form birth certificate two years ago is a forgery and that Obama is also inexplicably using a Connecticut Social Security number.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal did not respond to a query from The Post & Email regarding the whereabouts and well-being of Adm. Charles Gaouette, who was abruptly relieved of duty several weeks after the attack in Benghazi which killed four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya. Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee Carl Levin’s press office told us that Levin had “no comment” on the matter.
Retired military members have speculated that Gaouette was in the process of carrying out contingency plans to rescue Amb. Christopher Stevens and the others trapped in the outpost which came under fire, which would have meant disobeying a “stand-down” order which was reportedly issued by an unknown commander. CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) has told The Post & Email that such a command could have come only from Obama, the putative commander-in-chief, as contingency plans would have normally been launched by the military upon learning of the distressed Americans in Benghazi.
Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy was appointed to Obama’s Council of Governors in late February. His spokesman did not respond to The Post & Email’s questions on the appointment nor whether or not Malloy was aware that Obama’s birth certificate and other documentation are fraudulent.
On April 4, Malloy signed a new law tightening the state’s already stringent firearms laws after having vowed to make Connecticut laws stricter than anything Congress might pass. He addressed an assemblage of allies on February 21 with putative Vice President Joe Biden in attendance just before his appointment to the Council of Governors. At the same meeting, Blumenthal spoke about what “was in Obama’s heart” regarding the Newtown murders.
Obama spoke at the University of Hartford on April 8 after Malloy signed the new laws after providing private transportation to relatives of some of the victims from Newtown as well as on Air Force One. A Sandy Hook mother who lost her son introduced Obama, who reportedly “had a tear in his eye.”
In his speech, Obama called for “change” to prevent future gun violence. He said that December 14, the day of the shootings, was “the hardest day of his presidency” but that if Congress does not pass stricter gun control laws, his job will be “even tougher.”
