    Wearing full military gear and wielding high-powered rifles, Delaware state police broke into a home Friday, shooting and killing a dog who was running from them in fear. The entry was captured on Mark Reedy’s security camera, who says police were looking for guns, but the shooting takes place off-frame. The video shows the dog running up to the door as they are trying to break in, yelling “state police … search warrant.” The dog is barking and it’s tail is wagging but as soon as it sees a giant shield enter the home with a gun pointing from behind...

    (Biden): And what my constant cry was that our biggest problem is our allies – our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. The Turks were great friends – and I have the greatest relationship with Erdogan, which I just spent a lot of time with – the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad except...

"Joe Biden's going to get in, I'm quite confident. I think he'll get in tomorrow or Tuesday," Kristol said. "I think he'll go to Delaware, presumably, and he'll announce in a state he represented for so many years, and I think he'll be a strong candidate."

    Without mentioning his name, US Vice President blasts new hasbarah chief Dr. Ran Baratz, over his past comments against President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. Biden was quick to stress America's “rock-solid” commitment to Israeli security at the start of his 45-minute address before the Union for Reform Judaism's biennial in Orlando, Florida. Then, in sharp condemnation of Baratz, Biden noted that "although we won’t always agree, and this is the one thing I do want to say - We should always be respectful of one another." “There is no excuse, there should be no tolerance for...

    After Barack Obama’s totally predictable cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline project (for now, at least) there was great celebration among the environmental brigade of the Social Justice Warriors. The evil pipeline was dead, along with all the jobs it would bring and the opportunity for us to capture and process much of Canada’s wealth of energy rather than it being shipped to China. (Which it will be anyway when the Northern Gateway Pipeline is complete, whether we get some of it or not.) But as with all things in the liberal enclaves of the country, one victory is...

Coons announced his decision in an address at the University of Delaware. There Coons acknowledged that the deal was terrible for America. He detailed all the ways the deal harms US national security and places US allies, including Israel at grave risk. Frankly, this is not the agreement I hoped for, Coons began.
