  • PJ Exclusive: The Obama/Holder Justice Department’s Ticket to Corruption

    Gambling figures prominently in this story, but this isn’t a story about gambling. It’s a story about an administration misusing its power to benefit its friends. It’s a story about the corrupt purchase of our government. For half a century, Democratic and Republican administrations have interpreted the Wire Act, passed in 1961, as prohibiting the sale of lottery tickets by phone or wire, and in more recent years over the Internet. That changed on Christmas 2011, when the Obama/Holder Department of Justice reinterpreted the Wire Act. The DOJ ruled that the Wire Act allows lotteries to sell tickets online....

    Vice President Joe Biden seemed to endorse same-sex marriage Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." Conflicting responses then came from Biden's office and the Obama campaign. A spokesperson for Biden clarified that the vice president had not changed his position, but his position is "evolving." "Look, I just think that the good news is that as more and more Americans come to understand what this is all about, it's a simple proposition: Who do you love? Who do you love? And will you be loyal to the person you love? And that's what people are finding out, is what all...

    In March of 2011, former Rep. John Leboutiller predicted in a News Max article that, “the tea party will select the 2012 GOP nominee.” At the time, it was a safe prediction given the strength of the tea-party movement in the 2010 elections and the influence it was expected to have on the GOP presidential primaries just over a year later. But something went terribly wrong in the meantime. Many politicians heavily supported by the tea-party movement seem to have switched sides, pursuing their own agenda at the expense of the conservative movement and the tea party. Take Christine O’Donnell,...

    Biden: ‘My Image of the Military Commander' Was 'Slim Pickens...on the Back of an Atom Bomb' 'Yelling Yippee-Ki-Yay' By Michael W. Chapman April 26, 2012 (CNSNews.com) - Vice President Joe Biden said that when he was first elected to the U.S. Senate back in 1972, his view of U.S. military commanders was epitomized by actor Slim Pickens in the movie “Dr. Strangelove,” riding an atomic bomb like a cowboy and “yelling yippee-ki-yay!” In a campaign speech focusing on foreign policy, delivered at New York University on Thursday, Biden said he ran for the Senate in 1972 “because I thought the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Newt Gingrich's daughter says the former House speaker will "reassess" his campaign after the votes are tallied in Delaware, potentially setting the stage for his exit from the Republican presidential race. Jackie Gingrich Cushman said Tuesday that her father's campaign has slimmed down but is still winning over voters who aren't yet sold on Mitt Romney, who has effectively clinched the GOP presidential nomination. Despite trailing Romney in convention delegates and fundraising, Gingrich has vowed to campaign until the party's late-summer convention in Florida. Gingrich is carrying more than $4.3 million in debt and has been spending...

    Despite speculation that he might drop out of the presidential race soon, Newt Gingrich said he is pressing on during an exclusive interview with NewsChannel 36 anchor Dave Wagner Tuesday afternoon. “These reports somehow get exaggerated,” Gingrich. “We have 23 events this week…What I did say was that we are going to evaluate actively and honestly what has happened here.” Gingrich spent part of Tuesday at the Billy Graham library with his wife and campaign staff. He is expected at an event Tuesday night in Concord as well. “Under any circumstance we are going to be at every single event...

    Newt Gingrich has got a new hope: the tiny but dangerous state of Delaware. With Mitt Romney and the national press corps now focused on the general election, Gingrich is hoping to become the Christine O’Donnell of the 2012 race — rallying the state’s conservatives to pull off an upset victory over the more moderate candidate who never saw it coming. While Romney has ignored it, Gingrich has spent most of his time recently in Delaware, a state with only 17 delegates that will be awarded on a winner-take-all basis in Tuesday night’s primary races, which also include Pennsylvania, Connecticut,...

    Ready for the greatest political comeback of all time?  According to the Newt Gingrich campaign, that’s what they hope to start tomorrow in Delaware by surprising Mitt Romney in tomorrow’s winner-take-all closed primary: The campaign told NBC that Tuesday would be a “big day” and that Gingrich was “just waiting to see” what the outcome of the primary would be.  He told a Wilmington audience last week that a win in Delaware would “break up the media narrative” that has formed from Gingrich’s inability to win a state in over six weeks.  Can Gingrich make this his “game changer” and...

  • Romney Delaware Endorser Switches His Support to Gingrich

    Dover, DE - Newt 2012 announced today that Hans Reigle, Chairman of the Kent County Republican Party, is switching his support from Mitt Romney to Newt Gingrich. Reigle has also served as the Mayor of Wyoming, Delaware and over 20 years in the United States Air Force. “I previously endorsed Governor Romney, but since then Newt is the only candidate who has shown a willingness to meet and talk with Delaware voters for more than hour,” said Hans Reigle. ”Over the past few weeks I’ve listened to Newt discussing his vision for achieving $2.50 gasoline, balancing the budget, and shrinking...

    Daily Caller ^ | 4-12-12 | Levinson
    The Republican presidential primary has been pronounced over, but against the odds, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich remains in the race. Even more improbably, the former speaker is still getting a slow trickle of endorsements from politicians who seem to genuinely believe he has a shot at the White House. The Daily Caller caught up with the latest politician to endorse Gingrich, Delaware State Senator Dave Lawson, whose endorsement was announced on Wednesday after Rick Santorum dropped out and the vast majority of pundits declared the race at the end. “The race isn’t over until the votes are...

In a childish, unpresidential tone, President Obama mocked Republicans saying we have a three point plan for bringing down gas prices; drill, drill, drill. I’m challenging Pres. Obama or Any Democrat with the guts to take this wager… If I can come up with...

    President Obama met with a group of Democratic governors on Friday and discussed plans to work around Congress toward policy goals. Gov. Jack Markell, the Democratic governor of Delaware and the vice chairman of the National Governors Association, told The Hill that the meeting was “very good” and said many of the governors were responsive to ideas about bypassing Congress. “There was a sense that none of us should wait, we can’t wait for things to happen in Congress,” Markell said of the meeting. “We’re going to do what we can do [now].” Obama has positioned himself against Congress as...

    If the taxpayers of Delaware aren't startled by the following news, nothing will bother them: The University of Delaware – which recently increased tuition by 7% on students – has just spent what we can only assume was a great deal of money to complete a "major survey" of how little Fox News viewers understand the Occupy Wall Street movement. Seriously. The earth-shaking evidence provided by this survey tells us that Fox viewers are the least likely among consumers of various media outlets to understand the "central message" of the Occupy movement: "Too few people control the majority of the nation's wealth and power."  Viewers of the Daily Show...
  • Should Conservative Women like Christine O'Donnell "settle' for MITT ROMNEY?

    01/06/2012 8:19:55 AM PST · by Moseley · 14 replies
    Mitt Romney rolled out coordinated endorsements by tea party leaders Christine O'Donnell and Nikki Haley (Governor of South Carolina) and Ann Coulter in about the same week, just when Newt Gingrich was ahead of everyone nationwide in the Presidential Republican primary race. Yes, the endorsements did make a huge difference, because they crowded out attention for Newt Gingrich just at the moment (intentionally planned, no doubt) that Newt Gingrich was surging ahead of all the other GOP candidates. Whether or not anyone will vote as Christine O'Donnell recommends, the story "stepped on" Newt's best week in public relations term, crowding...

    A wheelchair-bound woman crossing a city street in Wilmington, Delaware, was struck and killed by a series of three vehicles that all fled the scene. Police were hunting on Wednesday for three drivers wanted in the hit-and-run death of Edith McFarland, 58, of Wilmington. She was trying to get across South Market Street, a busy road near the Fairview Inn, where she had been living for the past three months, when she was struck at 6:35 p.m. on Tuesday, Delaware State Police said. "After the impact, McFarland was ejected from her wheelchair into the southbound lanes of South Market Street,...
