  • Senators to introduce new bipartisan bill to protect Mueller

    The Hill ^ | 04/11/18 | Jordain Carney
    A group of bipartisan senators is introducing new legislation to limit President Trump's ability to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Christopher Coons (D-Del.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) will introduce the legislation, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, on Wednesday. The legislation would let Mueller, or any other special counsel, receive an "expedited judicial review" within 10 days of being fired to determine if it was for a "good cause." If it was determined it wasn't, he would be reinstated. It would also codify regulations that only a senior Justice Department official can...

    Biden Bombshell - Dr. Sebastian Gorka on Hunter Biden's billion dollar deal with the Chinese: I am rarely at a loss for words, but this is potentially one of the biggest pay-for-play scandals outside of Uranium One. Peter Schweizer new book, 'Secret Empires' reveals that 10 days after Joe Biden and his son visit China in 2013, a Chinese bank completes a $1 billion deal with Biden's son who then buys Hennings, a U.S. military supplier. Like the Secretary Hillary Clinton Uranium One deal, Secretary of State John Kerry had to sign off on the deal for approval of the...
  • Jeb Bush at Penn's Silfen Forum: D.C. lawmakers are 'complicating immigration policy'

    The Daily Pennsylvania (U of Penn) ^ | 02/16/2018 | Deena Elul and Haley Suh
    Members of the Senate failed to advance any immigration laws on Feb. 15, leaving the fate of various U.S. immigrants in an ongoing state of limbo. News of the vote came in as hundreds of attendees sat in Irvine Auditorium, listening to former Vice President Joe Biden and former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush discuss immigration policy with Penn President Amy Gutmann. The two-hour discussion was punctuated by brief personal anecdotes by the panelists. In a particularly memorable moment, Bush described his relationship to his wife, Columba Bush, a Mexican-American philanthropist. "My wife is from Mexico, she's a proud Mexican-American....
  • Trump: The Schumer-Rounds-Collins immigration bill would be a total catastrophe.

    The Schumer-Rounds-Collins immigration bill would be a total catastrophe. @DHSgov says it would be “the end of immigration enforcement in America.” It creates a giant amnesty (including for dangerous criminals), doesn’t build the wall, expands chain migration, keeps the visa... lottery, continues deadly catch-and-release, and bars enforcement even for FUTURE illegal immigrants. Voting for this amendment would be a vote AGAINST law enforcement, and a vote FOR open borders. If Dems are actually serious about DACA, they should support the Grassley bill!

    The Senate shot down Sen. John McCain’s latest immigration legalization proposal Thursday as lawmakers finally began their long-awaited floor fight over the fate of “Dreamers.” Mr. McCain and Sen. Chris Coons, Delaware Democrat, had proposed an amnesty for perhaps 3 million illegal immigrants in exchange for a study of border security and a promise of action by 2021. But the plan had been rejected by President Trump and garnered only 52 votes in support, which was well shy of the 60 senators had set as the needed threshold for action. Votes were expected in quick succession on a plan to...
  • Barbara Kay: Delaware students can now choose their own race. This should end well

    Are they really going there? Yes, they apparently are. Too late for Rachel Dolezal, alas. Dolezal identifies as 'transracial' a belief that would have been affirmed if she were a Delaware student today. The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as “Regulation 225.” Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard children’s “protected characteristics,” such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity. Section 7.4(1) of 225’s Prohibition of Discrimination Code states, “All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race, which is...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that he’ll only allow the House to vote on an immigration bill President Trump will sign, effectively ruling out several bipartisan plans that fall short on border security. “We’re not going to bring immigration legislation through that the president doesn’t support,” Mr. Ryan said when asked about the path forward. Congress has less than four weeks until the March 5 phaseout deadline Mr. Trump set for the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty, which is currently protecting nearly 700,000 illegal immigrant “Dreamers.”
  • McCain, Coons immigration bill sparks Trump backlash

    A bill aimed at resetting immigration negotiations in the Senate is running into early backlash from President Trump. The bill from Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.), introduced on Monday, pairs a path to citizenship for “dreamers” with border security measures — but does not include funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall. The two senators believe their bill could be a base for negotiators among a wider group of senators, but Trump took a shot at the measure before it was even formally introduced. The president said it was a non-starter to offer a fix for the Deferred...

    Just in case any of our elected representatives didn’t notice, we’re going to run out of money (again) in a few days. As you may recall, the largest sticking point in the recent edition of Shutdown Theater was the lack of an agreement on a DACA bill. As Ed mentioned earlier, there is a new proposal to get Congress moving on settling the matter and it’s coming in the form of a bipartisan, gang-style arrangement between Senators John McCain and Chris Coons. The details remain a bit sketchy, but the Washington Post has what little we know about it so...

    Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.) will introduce immigration legislation on Monday in an effort to reach a budget deal before the federal government's current funding runs out on Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported. The bipartisan piece of legislation provides recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, commonly known as "Dreamers," an opportunity for citizenship while ordering a study to figure out what border security measures are needed, according to the Journal. DACA aimed to protect from deportation certain immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally when they were children. Senate aides told the Journal...

    A negligence lawsuit claiming Spirit Airlines fed alcohol to rowdy female passengers and then failed to defuse a subsequent cabin brawl has crashed and burned. After a 12-day trial that ended Thursday in Los Angeles, a jury decided the carrier was not responsible for the violent March 2016 clash that was caught on video and quickly went viral. The lawsuit, announced in New York last year by three Delaware women and their plaintiff's lawyer Gloria Allred, claimed Spirit's flight attendants had an obligation to act when the problem passengers exhibited aggressive behavior such as blasting music and waving a boom...

    My wife works for a large financial services firm that has a contract with the state of Delaware. They (her company) just sent an email to their contract employees at the state site telling them that they would be getting a $1000 bonus in the upcoming weeks. They specifically mentioned it is due to the just signed changes in the tax code. Now here is the funny part; Delaware is pretty much a lost cause for conservatives and the employees are predominantly African American locals. My wife and I are strong Trump supporters and I have warned her not to...

    In what was certainly one of the stranger exchanges on cable news Wednesday, Democratic Sen. Tom Carper (DE) claimed on CNN that White House economic adviser Gary Cohn followed his advice and faked a bad connection to get off the phone with President Trump earlier this month.The discussion, Carper claimed, was over tax reform. According to Carper, 30 minutes into the meeting, Cohn got a call from Trump in Asia, which Carper said was "nice," but he said, "15 minutes later, the president's still talking.""I said, ‘Gary, why don't you do this? Take your cell phone back and just say,...

    A proposed education regulation in Delaware allows children to self-identify as any race and gender regardless of reality. “All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race,” Regulation 225 says, and that will be maintained in official records. The regulation stipulates that students’ parents may only be notified of their child’s trans-race or transgender identification if they are “supportive of the student” and his or her confusion. It says: A school may request permission from the parent or legal guardian of a minor student before a self identified gender or race is accepted; provided, however, that...

    (CNN)A suspect in shootings in Maryland and Delaware on Wednesday that left three people dead and three others injured was caught in Delaware after a manhunt, authorities said. Radee Labeeb Prince, 37, is accused of killing three people and wounding two others at his job in Maryland on Wednesday morning. Police say he shot a sixth person about two hours later at a Wilmington, Delaware, car dealership. In the late afternoon, authorities zeroed in on the suspected gunman's vehicle -- a 2008 black GMC Acadia SUV -- about 15 miles from the scene of the second shooting. A tipster saw...

And we’re proud to support Sallie Mae, and the Delawareans who work there, as the company continues to put down roots here in our great state.” The new jobs are part of a deal with the Delaware Division of...
