    Speaking at an annual Democratic Party dinner in New Hampshire on Sunday evening, former Vice President Joe Biden drew a groan from the crowd when he addressed the elephant in the room. Addressing a crowd in Manchester, Biden said that though his visit “caused a lot of speculation — guys I’m not running!"

  • Muslims Take Over Senate Floor To Pray To Allah – Then This Veteran Steps In…

    The U.S. is currently at war with an ideology that is unbinding, and will not relent until the U.S. is defeated. Sadly, many within our own Government cannot see the truth behind this cold, hard fact, because they are blinded by political correctness. Comes now a story that proves case in point. Thank God at least one man in attendance, a veteran, called this spade a spade. Online media outlet Mr. Conservative relays the details of what happened from Right Wing News below: Two Muslim men took over the Delaware Senate floor this week to pray to Allah in an...

    (Angry Patriot) – The cult of multiculturalism is a virus attacking the American body politic. One U.S. veteran in Delaware took a brave stand in order to halt the infection.Dave Lawson, an Air Force veteran and the Republican representative of Marydel, chastised his colleagues for immediately bowing their heads in submission when two Muslims began a prayer inside of the Delaware Senate, via Delaware Online.“We just heard from the Koran, which calls for our very demise,” Lawson barked after the prayer had been read. “I fought for this country, not to be damned by someone that comes in here and...

    Republican lawmakers in Delaware walked out of a legislative session Wednesday during a prayer reading from the Quran, with one returning later to call the reading from the Muslim holy book "despicable." The News Journal reports state Sens. Dave Lawson and Colin Bonini exited the Senate chambers in Dover when Tarek Ewis, imam of the Masjid Isa Ibn-e-Maryam mosque in Newark, and Naveed Baqir, executive director of the Delaware Council on Global and Muslim Affairs, gave the day's invocation per an invitation. Lawson returned after the prayer had finished. An Air Force veteran who served a tour in Vietnam, he...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden made the crucial first step in a potential run for president in 2020, according to a Tuesday report from Politico. Biden is set to attend the New Hampshire Democrat Party’s fundraising dinner, an event he declined to attend in 2015 because he didn’t want to fuel rumors of a planned run in the 2016 presidential election, according to the report. The fundraiser is important due to the state’s "first in the nation" primary status, and the annual benefit was long seen by party officials as a way to earn early support in presidential races.

    --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...
