  • Ship that caused Baltimore bridge to collapse had 4 blackouts before deadly crash: report

    The ship’s first power outage occurred after a crew member mistakenly closed an exhaust damper while conducting maintenance in port, causing one of its diesel engines to stall, according to the report. A backup generator automatically came on and continued to run for a short period — until insufficient fuel pressure caused it to kick off again, resulting in a second blackout. While recovering from those power outages, crew members made changes to the ship’s electrical configuration, switching to a different transformer and set of breakers, according to safety investigators. “Switching breakers is not unusual but may have affected operations...
  • Blame Delaware: CEO defends Elon Musk, takes out $2M ad campaign hit on ‘anti-business’ state

    Forget the First State — call it the Worst State. One CEO launched a $2 million bid Monday to dirty up Delaware’s boring reputation and encourage America’s corporations to stop registering there despite its business-friendly taxes and court system. Philip Shawe is spending big on a national attack ad after a bruising court battle which made him a sworn enemy of the state best known as the home of Joe Biden. He is not its only enemy. Elon Musk has also lashed out at Delaware, specifically its courts, claiming they’re bad for the businesses which register there after he lost...
  • Joe Biden: Racial integration would cause his children to "grow up in a racial jungle."

    Joe Biden: non-"orderly" racial integration would cause his children to "grow up in a racial jungle." Old comments from 1977 resurfaced, quoting Biden as saying that non-"orderly" racial integration policies would cause his children to "grow up in a racial jungle." He then said: "Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point."
  • Coons dismisses Biden’s low approval numbers: Democrats have ‘consistently’ ‘overperformed’ polls

    Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) on Sunday brushed off low favorability numbers for President Biden and his policies, arguing Democrats often “overperform” polls when it actually comes down to the elections. Anchor Shannon Bream pointed to recent Fox News polling that shows the majority of voters disapprove of Biden’s job, with his worst ratings over border security. She said Biden is “underwater” on a variety of issues, including the economy, China, inflation and the Israel-Hamas war.

    The Federalist ^ | 02/27/2024 | Shawn Fleetwood
    Democrat-passed laws authorizing a 10-day voting season and permanent absentee voting status violate the Delaware Constitution, a state court ruled on Friday. Writing for the Superior Court of the State of Delaware, Judge Mark Conner determined that legislation enabling early and “permanent absentee” voting in Delaware elections does not comport with the state’s founding document. The lawsuit challenging the statutes in question was brought by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) on behalf of Michael Mennella, an inspector of elections for the Delaware Department of Elections. State Election Commissioner Anthony Albence and the Delaware Department of Elections are defendants in...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom sought to flip anxiety over President Biden’s age on its head, contending that his octogenarian status is actually a strength. “I’ve seen him up close, I’ve seen him from afar, but here’s my point: It’s because of his age that he’s been so successful,” Newsom told NBC’s “Meet the Press” in an interview that aired Sunday.

    A Delaware court has ruled that state laws on early and permanent-absentee voting violate the state constitution. The state's Superior Court ruled Friday that a 2019 law passed by the state legislature, which allows 10 days of early voting, violates the state constitution that the General Election is to be held on one day. The court also found that the state's Permanent Absentee Voting Statute violates state law by allowing voters to be placed on a permanent absentee voting list where ballots would automatically be sent to them for each election. The voting votes were challenged in court by the...

    Democrat Senator Chris Coons of Delaware recently said that unless we send more aid to Ukraine, American troops will end up on the front lines in Russia. This sounds like a threat. It’s a blatant example of fear-mongering that Democrats and even some Republicans have resorted to in the case of funding for Ukraine. When did liberals become so pro-war and prone to the politics of fear? CNBC reports: U.S. troops will be on the front lines against Russia without further Ukraine aid, Senator Coons says The U.S. faces the prospect of direct combat with Russia if it fails to...

    American soldiers could be next in line to combat the Russian military if the House does not approve a supplemental package that includes aid to Ukraine, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) said Friday. “In the next front against Russia, it will be Americans on the front lines,” Coons told CNBC’s Silvia Amaro on Friday in an interview from the Munich Security Conference. “We are best off investing in the Ukrainians who are fighting bravely for their own freedom than allowing Putin the opportunity to spread further chaos and violence across Europe,” Coons said. The Senate approved a $95 billion foreign aid...

    Joe Biden’s cognitive decline is not new, and it certainly wasn’t a secret. Jill Biden knew. His aides knew. Heck, James Clyburn, the entire Democratic establishment knew. Yet, terrified that Bernie Sanders would win the nomination and then fail to take down their mortal enemy, Donald Trump, they propped up Biden like he was a Potemkin candidate — or, more accurately, “Weekend at Bernie’s” — to try to capture some Obama nostalgia. With the benefit of pandemic lockdowns, they could imprison Old Joe in the basement, limit his interactions with the press, and keep him tied to a teleprompter between...

In the first five states, Kennedy is pursuing ballot access through a newly formed organization known as the “We the People” party, while in Texas, he is doing so through the recently established “Texas Independent Party.” Kennedy explains...

    Police also wrongly cited him for "improper hand signal" after the man flipped them off.Last year, Delaware police prevented 54-year-old Jonathan Guessford from holding a sign warning drivers about a speed trap and wrongfully cited him for "improper hand signal" after he flipped off the officers who seized and tore up his sign. Police have now agreed to pay Guessford $50,000 as part of a settlement reached in a lawsuit alleging that police violated his civil rights. Following several run-ins with the police, Guessford decided to "stage protests whenever he saw police officers stopping unsuspected vehicles using a radar gun,"...

When the agents reached out to Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf with their request for a warrant, she informed Biden’s defense team about their interest in the property. “It was at this point for me that I started to believe that the attorneys with the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office and DOJ Tax were not acting appropriately“

    A federal prosecutor who allegedly interfered in the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden to protect both President Biden and his son recently left the Justice Department, The Post has learned. Former Delaware assistant US attorney Lesley Wolf’s quiet departure emerged as she appeared for a deposition with the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday morning — following the Wednesday night House vote to formally authorize the impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden over his role in his son and brother’s foreign business dealings.

    Below is my column in The Hill on the long-awaited interview of Special Counsel David Weiss with House investigators. As expected, Weiss refused to answer most of the questions, but seemed perfectly Nietzschean in explaining obvious conflicts between the accounts of whistleblowers and the Attorney General. Here is the column: The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said that all things are matters of mere interpretation and “whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.” One has to understand Nietzsche and his nihilistic rejection of meaning to fully appreciate this week’s interview with special counsel...

Biden is returning to his residence in Wilmington after delivering a Veterans' Day address as the "Delaware Palestine March" commences in the same area. "Biden, Biden, you can't hide! We charge you with genocide!" the crowd chanted as protesters began gathering earlier this afternoon.

    President Joe Biden’s receipt of two separate “loan repayments” from family members after he left the vice presidency raises questions for the House impeachment inquiry to investigate. The questions are based on Wednesday’s revelation from House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) that Joe Biden received $40,000 in “laundered” CEFC China Energy Co. money in 2017, according to Comer, from the account of his brother, James Biden, and sister-in-law, Sara Biden, once again in the form of a personal check labeled as a “loan repayment.” The discovery is the second instance Joe Biden personally accepted a suspicious personal check from...

    A civilian aircraft that violated restricted airspace in Delaware Saturday afternoon prompted fighter jets to scramble because the president was at his home in Wilmington, Anthony Guglielmi, Chief of Communications for the United States Secret Service, said. "Shortly after 2 p.m., a civilian aircraft violated restricted airspace north of Wilmington, Delaware," Guglielmi said. He said the fighter jets were scrambled "as a precaution" and the civilian aircraft landed safely at a nearby airport. Guglielmi added that the president's movements weren't impacted.
