It is being viewed as the first chance for voters to respond to Donald Trump at the ballot box since November. From the Huffington Post: A Special Special Election From the article: “Hansen’s campaign is benefitting from the outpouring of anger and activism that has erupted since the election of Donald Trump as president. Millions […]
If we screw the pooch in this special, the Democratic Party truly is more fucked up than something that is completely and thoroughly fucked up. Worse still … the world is watching.
Also, this is first rate blogging by CassandraM at Bluedelaware that absolutely dismembers John Marino and the transparently corrupt DEGOP
All Rhode Island DNC member endorsed Ellison today, and there is this: DNC Race Shakeup: Ray Buckley to Exit, Endorse Keith Ellison With just a week left before Democratic National Committee members gather in Atlanta to cast their ballots, the move could have far-reaching consequences both for the election and the future of the party
This morning I woke up to this, “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”
Betsy DeVois may be the dumbest, but Scott Pruitt is the most lethal. His goal at the EPA is to kill it off. This is the “El Chapo to head the Drug Enforcement Administration” pick.
I’m going to try and make one of Carney’s budget meetings next week and could use some pointed questions. Below are some inspired by a CassandraM post at Blue Delaware, but I could use some more if you have any.
That quote is being attributed to Retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward as his reason for turning down Donald Trump’s offer to head up the National Security Council. I mean, would YOU want to lead an agency where Steve Bannon (the mind still reels) is feeding intel to whoever he wants to? In fact, I think […]
The Delaware Bicycle Plan (currently being created) is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to get the bicycle improvements your community needs in an official plan. So if you miss this opportunity, your next opportunity may not come around again until 2027! If your community has a great nearby trail (either existing, in design or being planned) but […]
Predictable: R Senators Demand Investigation into Blevins Hiring. Now, let me just say that Patti Blevins has indeed used and abused her power to feather her own nest. There’s no doubt about it. Head of Delaware Helpline? And now Director of Animal Control? If you go back even further you’ll find Girls Incorporated. So, yes, […]
No reader of DL will be surprised to learn that the problem (according to the right-wing media) isn’t the illegal and treasonous activity of the Trump administration, but the real threats to the republic are the “low-life” civil servants who expose the illegal and treasonous activity of the Trump administration. They are the real bad guys. The bad hombres, Trump and the wing-nut media is going after. How successful Trump and his media will be in vilifying these people will depend entirely on how readily the objective (main stream? fake news?) media accepts that narrative.
Finally, the civil servants in question have no investigating authorities to leak information regarding the illegal activity of the Trump administration to. That is why they have gone to the media. That simple fact is completely lost on the Alt-Right media complex and lost on the legit news media for the most part.
Governor John Carney’s entrepreneurial advisory group should have been called, John Carney’s advisory group for funneling money to the usual economic development suspects.
A friend who pays scant attention to politics asked me, “will there be a constitutional crisis?”
I was a little surprised by the question. Republicans control the executive branch and the legislative branch. Some interesting cases may be brought to the federal judiciary (which as of 8:30 am is still independent) but those are sideshows.
Our current AG is not going to investigate the President and the current Congress is not going to prosecute him. Period. But let me be even more cynical.
Will Trump’s deep connections with Russia affect the mid-term elections? No. Why would they? Voters knew about all of that prior to this most recent election and were not swayed. Democrats are still no closer to offering voters and AFFIRMATIVE case for why they should vote FOR some the Democratic Party’s version of government.
In the absence of some affirmative argument for why they should govern, Democrats will fail to make the headway in the upcoming midterms they need to change anything. So, it is Puppet Trump being operated out of Moscow for at least the next four years.
This is how you do it… Come to our first general meeting on February 23rd, at 7:30pm at 705 N Market St, Wilmington, DE 19801. Here all our teams will have specific actions we need your help on and you can sign up for (e.g. trainings, action projects, and volunteer opportunities) and we’ll also have […]
While the reality-based world has come to the conclusion that Flynn was working for Russia before, during, and after the inauguration of Donald Trump, Fox News has a different take. In the up is down world of American conservatism, this is not a case of a traitor being exposed, but an example of “the permanent […]
One of the Russian assets in Trumps inner circle has resigned. “Embattled White House national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday night, two sources tell CNN. [...] The move comes less than a month into the job, making him one of the shortest-serving senior presidential advisers in modern history.”
