    President Biden used the word “boy,” a term considered to be racial epithet when used to describe black men, to refer to Democratic Gov. Wes Moore, Maryland’s first black governor, in a speech on Wednesday. “You got a hell of a new governor in Wes Moore, I tell ya,” Biden said during remarks on the economy Wednesday to an audience of IBEW union workers in Lanham, Maryland. “He’s the real deal, and the boy looked like he could still play. He got some guns on him,” Biden added, eliciting cheers from the crowd.

    Washington, D.C.— Today, after months of bipartisan negotiations led by U.S. Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Joe Manchin (D-WV), two proposals were introduced which include legislation to reform and modernize the outdated Electoral Count Act of 1887 to ensure that the electoral votes tallied by Congress accurately reflect each state’s vote for President.

    A Senate Democrat said that the U.S. needs to discuss sending American troops to Ukraine — arguing that Vladimir Putin “will only stop when we stop him.” Appearing on Face the Nation Sunday, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) was confronted by CBS’s Margaret Brennan about comments he made earlier in the week in which he argued the U.S. needs to figure out when it would be willing to send armed forces to Ukraine. “We are in a very dangerous moment where it is important that on a bipartisan and measured way we in Congress and the administration come to a common...

    Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that President Joe Biden “masterfully pulled together” NATO to block Russian President Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine. Coons said, “I think it’s important that President Biden made it perfectly clear that if there is further aggression by Russia into Ukraine, the Nord Stream 2 pipeline which has been constructed over many years and is a prize of real significance to Putin, that pipeline will be stopped.”

    Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) is the latest lawmaker to announce he has tested positive for COVID-19. In a statement on Thursday, Coons said after testing regularly for COVID-19 in recent weeks with rapid and PCR tests, he received a positive diagnosis Wednesday night. “I have minimal symptoms so far and am optimistic I will recover well after isolating and following CDC guidelines. Like millions of other families, it seems we’ll also be wrestling with another holiday spent on Zoom and cancelled plans for travel or gathering,” he said.

    Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) got into argument on Wednesday during which the centrist West Virginia senator said he was willing to let go of all of President Biden's social spending plan, according to an Axios report that has been corroborated by multiple other senators who witnessed the spat. Fellow Democratic Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) and Chris Coons (Del.), both of whom serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee and were both in the room when it happened, relayed details of the blowup to Axios. According to Tester, Sanders said, "Joe said, 'I'm comfortable with nothing.' ... We...

    Friday, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) went to bat for Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is considering adding to the January 6 select committee after she vetoed two of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s committee appointees. Responding to the report that Kinzinger is being considered, Coons praised the Republican from Illinois who has been vocal in his opposition to former President Donald Trump and voted to impeach him following the riot at the U.S. Capitol. He told CNN’s “At This Hour” that Kinzinger “would be a great addition.”

    The Need for a Mandatory National Service Program By Steve Cohen April 2021 Proceedings Vol. 147/4/1,418 COMMENTARY FacebookTwitterRedditEmailShare COMMENTS The United States has a history of big, bold initiatives. Americans as individuals, however, have largely forgotten them. The New Deal is barely taught in school, most students do not understand why the United States fought World War II, and the Apollo space program might be remembered as an okay Tom Hanks film. Yet, big challenges and ideas have been at the core of American exceptionalism—itself a barely-remembered concept—since the founding of the Republic. Today, in the shadow of a devastating...

As she explains in this episode of Freedom One-On-One with Jeff Dornik, now is not the time for true conservatives to disengage from the battle.In the aftermath of the 2020 Election, many Republicans have begun to lose heart and give up, feeling as...

    Eight Democratic senators joined Republicans in rejecting raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour over five years after it was proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), and Angus King (I-Vt.)—who caucuses with Democrats—opposed the measure, joining all Republicans in the upper chamber. Coons and Carper are considered two close allies of President Joe Biden, who was formerly a senator from Delaware. The final vote tally was 42–58, falling far short of the 60 votes needed to...

    Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) said Friday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that President Donald Trump’s election legal actions were a “two-week-long temper tantrum.” CNN’s Dana Bash said, “Let’s start with what you just mention about your Republican colleagues in the Senate. I know you have real relationships across the aisle. You talk to them in private. What is your sense from those behind the scenes conversations about when they will finally come out, A, and B, whether or not they think it will really have impact or thinking it is time to do that for history’s sake.”

    Coons said, “[W]e’ve got to have a wide-open conversation about how do we rebalance our courts. Yes, the two Supreme Court [seats] that have been stolen through these processes that are just wildly hypocritical have been used to jam through partisan nominees. But we’ve got to look at our federal courts as a whole. Because we’ve seen hundreds of conservative judges put on circuit courts and district courts all over this country in the last four years, in many cases, too young, too unqualified, and too far right to be allowed to sit peaceably without our re-examining the process, the...

    Tara Reade is writing a memoir about the turbulent journey she has taken since coming forward with her allegation that her former boss Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993.

  • Delaware GOP Senate Candidate Says Sen. Chris Coons’ Daughter is ‘Featured on Hunter’s Laptop’

    Delaware Republican senate candidate Lauren Witzke has alleged that a source close to the investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop has informed her that there are images of Senator Chris Coons’ daughter, in addition to seven other underage girls. Coons’ daughter, Maggie Coons, was infamously photographed being handled inappropriately by Joe Biden in 2015. His conduct towards her was widely criticized by the mainstream media at the time, particularly because he whispered into her ear and kissed her on the head as she looked terribly uncomfortable. "Sources close to and with deep knowledge of the investigation, have informed me that Chris...

    Rarely has our nation seen a judge more competent and qualified to serve on the Supreme Court than Amy Coney Barrett. During her confirmation hearing, she held me in thrall with the magnificence of her mind. Only once before has anyone inspired the thought, "Greatness walks amongst us." His name is Trey Gowdy. In Amy Coney Barrett, I feel the same awe and chills once again. With Amy's confirmation, Lady Justice will no longer peek from underneath her blindfold. No longer will there be a finger surreptitiously pushing down on one side of her Scales of Justice. When Barrett's Senate...

  • Coons Says That Confirming Barrett 'Constitutes Court-Packing'

    Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chris Coons said on Sunday that the Senate moving to confirm President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett "constitutes court-packing," and called the nominee's views "disqualifying." Coons, D-Del., made the comments during an interview with "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., also spoke with Wallace Sunday. "I'm going to be laying out the ways in which Judge Barrett's views ... are not just extreme, they're disqualifying," Coons said of Democrats' strategy for Barrett's hearings. "It constitutes court-packing." Court-packing's traditional definition is expanding the Supreme Court by law and then confirming...
