    Biden: I regret not running for president By Brooke Seipel - 03/25/17 04:55 PM EDT Former Vice President Joe Biden late Friday night said he regretted not running for the presidency, predicting if he had secured the Democratic nomination he could have won against Donald Trump. "I had planned on running for president and although it would have been a very difficult primary, I think I could have won,” he said. “Maybe not, I don’t know.” "I was fairly confident that if I had become the Democratic nominee, I would have had a good chance to be president," Biden continued....

    --SNIP-- Ritchey highlighted the ongoing strain between ICE and Philadelphia, a so-called sanctuary city, which limits its cooperation with federal immigration agents. She said ICE had issued detainers — requests to hold prisoners beyond their normal release times — for several of the people arrested but that Philadelphia “released the individuals from custody” instead of honoring the requests. She said that created “a situation that puts the public at unnecessary risk.” Late Monday night, Mayor Kenney issued a response to Ritchey’s statement. “Like ICE, we want to keep Philadelphians safe but we can’t do that if we are asked to...
  • Senate Democrat Who Claimed Hard Evidence of Trump-Russia Collusion: Uh, Never Mind

    Liberal Delaware Sen. Chris Coons caused a stir last week when he indicated during a televised interview that yet-undisclosed transcripts of recorded phone conversations conclusively prove that elements of the Trump campaign explicitly colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.  Yet widely-circulated "bombshell" reports from the New York Times and CNN in recent weeks quoted sources who had no choice but to underline that there is no evidence of such coordination, and that the alleged contacts between Trump allies and Russian officials were not even necessarily unusual in nature.  Therefore, it's understandable why this statement from Coons -- a...
  • Did Democrats Just Begin an Electoral Comeback by Winning in Delaware?

    The $64,000 question for Democrats seeking to fight back against Donald Trump and a Republican Congress between now and the 2020 elections is whether their recent problems in turning out their voters, especially in nonpresidential contests, can be changed by the energy of a burgeoning anti-Trump resistance. The first real answer to that question may have occurred this weekend in a special state-senate election in the “First State,” Delaware. And though it would be unwise to assume it to set a reliable pattern, in this one case Democrats passed the test. The contest was over a seat in a state-senate...

    As of Saturday night, the unofficial elections results being reported by the State of Delaware Department of Elections indicated Stephanie Hansen has won the special election for the District 10 seat vacated by now-Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long. With the win, Hansen, a Democrat, retains the party's majority control of the chamber and, in fact, the state. Delaware remains one of about five states where Democrats hold the legislature and the governor's seat. Hansen declared shortly before 9 p.m. that she'd defeated Republican John Marino and Libertarian Joe Lanzendorfer on Twitter. Unofficial totals from the Department of Elections said she won...

    A special election to fill the District 10 state Senate seat, vacated by Bethany Hall-Long, now Lt. Governor, has drawn not just national attention, but national funding as well. It is an unprecedented amount---perhaps nearly 10 times as much as what is traditionally spent on a local state Senate seat race.  Observers said it would appear to be the Democratic Party pushing to maintain one of its final bastions of control in a state, following what many in the party feel was a shocking loss nationwide during the presidential election.

    Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in last month’s presidential election, liberals have been whining about how “unfair” this result is. Now, the Democrat lawmakers in Congress have launched a sick plan against Trump before he’s even inaugurated that may result in his impeachment. Right Wing News reported that Sen. Elizabeth Warren is working on a bill that would force President-elect Donald Trump, future FLOTUS Melania Trump, their youngest son Barron, Vice President-elect Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence to put their assets into a blind trust. This would prevent any conflict of interest during Trump’s presidency while...

    A long profile on Hillary Clinton in the Washington Post earlier this week highlights (the 2011 Libyan intervention) as a key indicator of her approach to foreign policy. Clinton claims that the Libyan bombing campaign was an example of “smart power at its best.” If she actually believes that, it raises serious questions about her judgment, as well as about her ability to analyze foreign policy dispassionately and with the best interests of the United States at heart. If Clinton is willing to point to Libya as a “signature moment in her four-year tenure” as secretary of state, as the...

    President Obama’s endorsement of a Joe Biden White House run will be conditional on having a “final say” over his choice for vice president, according to Ed Klein, author of the Hillary Rodham Clinton biography “Unlikeable.” “Barack Obama would like to see Deval Patrick, the former governor of Massachusetts and an African-American, run on the Biden ticket,” Klein told John Catsimatidis on AM 970 radio Sunday. Patrick, who served as assistant attorney general under then-President Bill Clinton, grew up in Chicago, Obama’s former stomping grounds. He succeeded Mitt Romney as governor of Massachusetts. Klein said that the first family is...

    In 2010 Vice President Joe Biden said Iraq was going to be one of the Obama administration’s great accomplishments. “I’m very optimistic about Iraq and it’s going to be one of the great achievements of this administration.” (Video) Biden was able to make these comments after the Bush surge resulted in enormous reduction in violence, an increase in GDP, peak oil production, increased electricity rates, a free press and democratic elections. But that all changed after Barack Obama withdrew US troops from Iraq in 2011. Since then, ISIS took over one-third of the country and initiated a genocide of Iraqi...

    U.S. Vice President Biden told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in a call on Friday that the United States is prepared to move forward with a third loan guarantee agreement to support reforms against corruption, the White House said. The United States promised the third $1 billion loan guarantee in November, but it was contingent on progress on reforms and fighting corruption. Biden also welcomed the appointment of a new prosecutor general in Ukraine as "an important first step to bringing much needed reform," to the prosecutor general office. Ukrainian lawmakers on Thursday appointed Yuriy Lutsenko, a close ally of Poroshenko,...

    Vice President Joe Biden says he “would have been the best president” if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family. Speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May. “No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” he said. “And, Beau was my soul. I...

    Vice President Joe Biden on Friday indicated that he was disappointed in Donald Trump's taco bowl tweet on Cinco de Mayo, and said that he hopes the presumptive Republican nominee begins to talk more seriously about the issues. “He's a smarter guy than this," Biden told Fox 5 DC. "I hope he reaches the point where he figures out that it’s not a game show and that he begins to talk in earnest about where he would take the country." "Because that is the kind of debate the public deserves. I know Hillary [Clinton] or Bernie [Sanders], if he is...

    Donald Trump’s extraordinary Tuesday evening in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware got me thinking: if this GOP presidential process were a prizefight, the referee would have stopped it last night. The announcer would have exclaimed, “ Donald Trump, winner by knockout.” The impressiveness of Donald Trump’s clean sweep of the “Acela Primary States” on Tuesday isn’t in the victories themselves. Everyone knew that Trump would do well on Tuesday in the more moderate northeast. It’s the margin that’s notable. This was a shellacking. The knock on Trump was that he had a ceiling or that when other candidates...
