When there’s a mass shooting and the nation is grieving, what does gun grabber Sen. Chris Murphy do? He sends an email to his supporters and constituents asking them to give to his re-election campaign.
Not only did he do this repulsive thing without asking “too soon?”, he also hid the campaign plea behind “gun violence prevention” (aka gun grabbing) organizations.
In an email with the subject line “Outraged at Congressional inaction on guns?” Murphy urged supporters to “Split a donation – of any amount – between the leading organizations working every day to take on the gun lobby and make our communities safer from gun violence.”
One of the organizations in the “split” page users saw when they clicked was Murphy’s re-election campaign. How conveniently subtle. Connecticut is a pretty liberal state, so it’s not like Murphy is too worried, but then again, Connecticut revolted when the state tried to make every gun owner register with the state. Murphy’s Republican opponent wasn’t too pleased.
“Using victims to raise money, and then shaming and guilting innocent, law-abiding citizens that own firearms? I think you pray for the families and you let them heal first,” said Matthew Corey, a Manchester Republican who has filed paperwork to run against Murphy in 2018.

U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy is facing criticism for a fundraising solicitation he sent by email this week – days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history – that directed donations to three gun violence prevention organizations but also to his own re-election campaign. In an email with the subject line “Outraged at Congressional inaction on guns?” Murphy urged supporters to “Split a donation – of any amount – between the leading organizations working every day to take on the gun lobby and make our communities safer from gun violence.” When users clicked the link, they were taken to a page to make a contribution. By Wednesday morning, half a day after the email had been sent, the form no longer directed donations toward Murphy’s campaign.
The email directed recipients to a popular Democratic fundraising portal known as Act Blue, which offered users the opportunity to donate to three progressive gun control advocacy groups and listed Murphy’s reelection war chest as the fourth option. The solicitation, headlined “Outraged at Congressional inaction on guns?,” comes four days after Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel, killing 59 and injuring more than 500. Murphy, a staunch gun control advocate, has been outspoken in his criticism of congressional inaction in the wake of mass shootings.
A day later, Murphy’s office altered the link so it would not default to donations for his re-election bid. It is not clear how much money Murphy raised off this solicitation. A spokesperson for Murphy defended the Connecticut Democrat’s right to raise campaign funds in the aftermath of the Las Vegas tragedy.
We should all support Sen. Chris Murphy fundraising off of a tragedy or Clinton using it to drive a partisan and illogical narrative…

Murphy has been using gun tragedies to raise money for years. I suppose he’s happy they haven’t been banned, because it keeps him in office and funds his campaigns.
Got something from Chris Murphy in the mail. Safe bet he's fundraising off guns

Chris Murphy is a self-serving opportunist. He sent out a fundraising letter less than one week following Sandy Hook.

One thing Murphy knows how to do is raise money for his own re-election.
I'm a frequent Chris Murphy supporter. I like what he says. I like the way he says it. And his online fundraising techniques are matchless. https://t.co/SgABTMmW2x

What a slimy political piece of excrement Murphy is to do this over and over again. It’s really his stock in trade, raising money for gun control after every tragedy, then doing little about it in the Senate. It works to keep him in office and keep his coffers full.
He was caught red-handed this time, but it’s unlikely to stop him. The best way to stop him, actually, is not to re-elect him. Hopefully, the good citizens of Connecticut will wake up and do just that.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
