TransPerfect News Thread

Here is a new Transperfect case followers.

Back on the 9th El Som wrote:

TransPerfect’s Campaign Imperfect. Did any of you see that commercial sponsored by some PAC called something like Pro-Business Delaware? Basically the ad says that, thanks to the Court of Chancery’s decision in the TransPerfect case, a decision necessitated b/c the two key TransPerfect officials just couldn’t get along, Delaware will lose its pre-eminent status for incorporations? It’s part of a $500,000 (!) campaign to influence Delaware legislators. Well, so far the score is one who has been influenced (Bonini) and two who have turned thumbs down (Simpson and Lavelle). When a so-called pro-business PAC loses the R Senate leadership, it has lost Delaware. Maybe they should spend the $500 K to send the two feuding officers to counseling.

Trump Pressed Comey to Stop Investigating Flynn

Filed in National by on May 16, 2017 39 Comments

I wonder what would have happened if Obama had asked Comey to stop investigating Hillary Clinton? “I hope you can let this go,” Trump asked of Comey. Knowing the President was in the process of obstruction justice, Comey drafted an unclassified memo to create “a paper trail” documenting what he saw as Trump’s improper attempts […]

Yes. Trump is the worst, but so what?

Yes.  Trump is the worst, but so what?

The WaPo reports that gave top secret info to the Russians.

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

Republicans still put their loyalty to the GOP above their loyalty to the country. And when I say Republicans, I mean your Neigbor, your Uncle, Charlie Copeland. We are through the looking glass. The country is less safe, and the GOP simply does not give a fuck.

The GOP’s Secret Mid-term Weapon (…is not so secret)

The GOP’s Secret Mid-term Weapon (…is not so secret)

Their party’s leader is a corrupt buffoon. The GOP controlled House of Representatives voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a used Pampers ™ filled with ebola monkey shit, putting some 24 million people on the “hope you don’t get sick” plan. Quite a mid-term strategy. We should clobber them, right? Wrong.

This is sad.

100 Days of Trump: An Alternate Perspective

100 Days of Trump: An Alternate Perspective

This week, I found myself, as I occasionally do, wandering Reno, Nevada. Reno is an odd little city, rank with the cigarette-infused sweat of benighted men and women gambling away their days, yet with development going on all over that is veering the town away from solely being Las Vegas’s trashy sister. It is a mongrel town, fitting for this mongrel age we are enduring.

At a giant warehouse filled with artists and craftspeople (“makers,” as we call them now), where metallurgists and carvers make giant sculptures meant for Burning Man, I met a young man in a wheelchair, almost quadriplegic – he had some small use of one hand, who painted portraits and landscapes with a brush affixed to a contraption he wore on his head, like a multi-hued unicorn’s horn. They were delicate, small pieces, slightly askew in perspective but precise enough to be stunningly accurate, even if you weren’t considering the artist and considering his technique.

Happy “Go Punch a Jew Day”

This Un-American craziness speaks for itself. President Donald Trump on Friday proclaimed May 1 as ‘Loyalty Day’ as a way to “recognize and reaffirm our allegiance to the principles” upon which America was built and express pride in those ideals, according to a release of the proclamation from the White House. “The United States stands […]

Godwin, a great kid, was a thrill to watch for four years at Middletown. He graduated as one of the top wide receiver prospects in the country. During his senior season he caught 18 touchdown passes, ran for three touchdowns and returned four kicks for scores. Tampa Bay picked him in the 3rd round of […]

A lot of talk about the old Dem circular firing squad forming up. Good times. Here is what professional DC Democrats and Clintonites, and frauds like John Carney still don’t get.

Delaware United breaks down the utter fraudulence of Carney’s claims that any “sacrifice” in his proposes budget is going to be “shared”. . Our Governor is proposing a budget that is a matter of, and I quote, “shared sacrifice.” He says that to deal with our $395 million state deficit, we all must sacrifice more […]

Is someone paying off Lumpy Carson?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like Carson’s HB115 and 116 are entirely about bailing out a dying business that isn’t even in his district. Nobody (other than Carson, Ennis, Bushweller, Lawson, Bennett, Outten, Spiegelman and Yearick) wants to invest in retail right now. But they want to invest your tax money so […]

Hey there!

I haven’t been around much and I don’t know how much I’m going to be a round for a while. I love the blog and love all of you, but I also just left a cushy job that was easy and gave me a lot of time to blog. Now I’m in the sink or swim world putting bread on the table and it has occupied all of my time. (In terms of finding something that can focus your mind, I highly recommend panic.)

Thank’s to Nemski and El Som for keeping it going. I think there is a pressing need for DelawareLiberal in the media landscape of this state. Whatever happens I hope it goes on and on and the tens of commenters keep commenting, and thousands of lurkers keep lurking.

Occasional Words From The Resistance…

Filed in National by on April 4, 2017 5 Comments

…from the desk of RE Vanella

THIS MONOPHONIC MICROGROOVE RECORDING IS PLAYABLE ON MONOPHONIC AND STEREO PHOTOGRAPHS. IT CANNOT BECOME OBSOLETE. IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE A SOURCE OF OUTSTANDING SOUND REPRODUCTION, PROVIDING THE FINEST MONOPHONIC PERFORMANCE FROM ANY PHOTOGRAPH.

–Endorsement on Rubber Soul, The Beatles, Capitol Records, Inc. 1965.

I wanted to share something today as a celebration of sorts. We won yesterday. Coons held his nerve. The fact that his remarks were politically measured is irrelevant. Let me be perfectly clear, I fully expect Neil Gorsuch to be the next Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court. That’s also irrelevant.

We showed some spirit. That’s promising because we’re going to need to do that about every two weeks into the foreseeable future. As you may have noticed yesterday, in this space but buried deep in the Third Circle of the comments section, I’m already onto Carney re: HB 110. Fuck it, I say every Democrat and Independent in the US Congress run a total blockade until they pass Medicaid for all. We’re going lose all these, but we’re going to show some bloody pride. Real pride. Not for Twitter or TV.

So, anyway, last week I submitted an Op-Ed that didn’t get published (aka., rejected without comment) in support of this last little scrap. I’ll share it with you all. Be a glutton for punishment. Revel in it. It’s character building.

Campaigns don’t start with a three county tour…

…they start with a tip to the DL tipline.

A person close to Simpler says that he is NOT running for treasurer in 2018. And that he does plan on running against Carney for governor in 2020.

Also – I’ve heard that if Simpler doesn’t run for Tres. look for Kathy McGuiness to run for that office. Could Ken be so generous as to give Park City a running start? Simpler is rumored to be a big supporter of KMcG and in looking at her facebook page, she’s planning on running for something.

I’m calling it: Ken Simpler will beat John Carney

I’m calling it: Ken Simpler will beat John Carney

After taking in Carney’s “shared sacrifice” budget proposal a couple of things have become clear to me.

1) Carney has no imagination. He isn’t a leader. He is just following along what Jack Markell did, right down to adopting Markell’s January swansong budget proposal wholesale. This budget shows no guts and fewer brains.

2) He doesn’t care about courting Democratic constituencies. The gutting of the Coastal Zone Act in order to preserve “offshore tax shelter” tax rates for wealthy corporations and individuals speaks volumes.

3) Carney is trapped in 1990’s. This budget does court two constituencies – the state chamber of commerce, and “moderates.”

Does he really think that he is going to run a race that ignores Democrats (because he thinks he has those votes tied down) while trying to appeal to the state’s persuadable Republicans? My sense is that he is thinking precisely that because it is what would have worked in the 1990’s.

This budget demonstrates…

Is it way too early for DE pot enthusiasts to get psyched?

I’m seriously asking. Some friends who follow marijuana policy more closely than they follow politics at large are rather excited by this development: Delaware took a major step Thursday toward becoming the ninth state to legalize recreational marijuana use. State legislators unveiled a bill that would allow state residents 21 and older to purchase up […]
