    WILMINGTON, Del. — Former vice president Joe Biden already has a train station in Wilmington named for him. Now, local officials are making a splash by naming a swimming pool for him. Gov. John Carney was scheduled to join Biden and community members on Monday, when the aquatic center at the Brown-Burton Winchester Park will be renamed in his honor. As a teenager, Biden worked as a lifeguard at what was known as the Prices Run swimming pool.

    Anyone who attacks President Trump is doing Obama's, Clinton's, Pelosi's & Schumer's bidding. Attacking President Trump puts you in with those traitors. President Trump is turning this nation around and if you attack him out of some fantasy you have about what he promised or what he meant or what he literally said because it doesn't match up with your jackass fantasy world then you will be treated as those other, aforementioned, traitors are. Your choice.
  • No one is really sure what Joe Biden will be doing at Penn

    Two weeks after the announcement that former Vice President Joe Biden will join Penn as a professor, administrators, professors and politically minded students alike are still confused about the nature of his role at the University. On Feb. 7, Penn President Amy Gutmann announced that Biden will lead the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C. as a "Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor," but nearly a month later the administration seems unclear about what this means. Many students thought Biden would be teaching courses at Penn, ---SNIP--- Although it was first reported that Biden was going...

    April 19, 2016, 10:20 am Biden: I'm not 'Goofy Uncle Joe' By Jordan Fabian Vice President Biden is not a fan of being labeled “Goofy Uncle Joe.” “No, I'm not comfortable with Goofy Uncle Joe,” he said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood. Biden said voters took him seriously when he considered running for president last summer. “And, by the way, the so-called Goofy Uncle Joe — if you notice, I beat every Republican in every poll when they thought I was running,” he said. “You notice that my favorability was higher than anybody that's running for office in...

    Vice President Joe Biden has been mocked on social media after getting up close and personal with the wife of the new defence secretary during his swearing-in ceremony. As Ash Carter began speaking at the White House, Mr Biden beckoned Stephanie Carter from across the room, then put both hands on her shoulders - just as her husband thanked the VP for presiding over the ceremony. Mr Biden's hands lingered for roughly 20 seconds until he leaned in and whispered in her ear. What he was confiding is unclear, but the image was captured on camera and gave Twitter users...

    Washington Post ^ | December 15, 2014 | By Aaron Blake
    Joe Biden is a sitting, two-term vice president of the United States -- a position that often entitles you to frontrunner status in your party's next presidential primary. And Biden has made clear that he's pretty interested in giving it a go. A new poll from Monmouth University, though, should give him some pause. It shows that very same Joe Biden languishing badly in the 2016 primary. In fact, he's at just 2 percent. That leaves him tied with Sen. Bernie Sanders, the socialist independent senator from Vermont. Given that the poll has a 5 percent margin of error, it's...

    DAVENPORT,Iowa(AP) -- Campaigning in one of the nation's key U.S. Senate contests, Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that keeping Democratic control of the chamber would "break the back of the hard right" and ease gridlock in Washington. Biden said next week's choice between Democrat Bruce Braley and Republican Joni Ernst for the open Senate seat in Iowa was critical to the outcome. If Braley wins and the Democrats maintain their majority, he said, the Republicans in Congress will be open to compromising with Democrats on issues such as raising the federal minimum wage."If that happens and it will, what's...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/06/2014 | Paul Austin
    Researchers from Aberdeen and Cambridge Universities have just published a study (on August 31st) which states that greenhouse gases from food production will go up 80% if we continue to eat meat and dairy produce at today's levels.Of course global-warming activists (as well as academics) have said this kind of thing before. Take Doctor Pachauri. In 2008 Dr Pachauri told a Compassion in World Farming conference that everyone should give up eating meat. Why did he do that? Because he believed that the digestive methane given off by cattle (i.e. flatulence) contributed more to greenhouse gases than all the world's transport...

    To a chorus of cheers, whistles and a standing ovation, Vice President Biden addressed a group of community health care workers — calling them “the moral backbone of the country” and professionals who on the frontline of signing people up for Obamacare. “For the first time in American history the idea that health care is a right and not a privilege is legislated,” said Biden. The more people are signed up, the less ability Congress has to turn back the law, he said. “The higher the numbers, the more certitude this is going to last forever,” Biden said

    The Obama administration asked Congress on Thursday to delay a new round of sanctions against Iran, citing new negotiations and the progress made in recent overtures between President Barack Obama and Iranian president Hassan Rouhani. Until now, the administration has claimed to pursue a "dual track" policy, in which it applied pressure through sanctions while at the same time remaining open to diplomatic progress. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that delaying sanctions could help create a window in which new talks could work. "We do believe it would be helpful...
