BEST BUYS is a Bust

By: Wolf von Baumgart, Consumer Affairs Editor Consumers Beware! Good looking storefronts, neatly arranged shelves of trendy merchandise and low prices can be very deceptive if the store does not have a fair and honorable way of dealing with defective merchandise. On January 27, 2017 this reporter purchased a Hewlett-Packard Notebook 15-AY009DX Model X7T50UA laptop computer with 1 TB of storage for $379.99 from BEST BUYS ( on 1165 N. DuPont Highway ) in Dover, DE. It seemed to work well enough for two weeks until a weird feather-shaped distortion appeared in the upper left hand corner of the screen after normal use. The unit was not dropped nor was excessive impact or pressure applied to the touchscreen. Three days later, after gently touching the screen , I heard a faint cracking sound and the screen totally distorted. Apparently, there was a preexisting hairline crack in Read more

COAD Cites “Lack of Action” in Delaware’s Prison Crisis

[ Photo: DE General Assembly ] By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer Speaking at a press conference in the cafeteria of Legislative Hall last Thursday, Correctional Officers Association of Delaware President, Geoff Klopp stated that Delaware’s correctional officers are in a crisis situation. He cited a “lack of action” on the part of state officials in dealing with major problems in Delaware’s prison system. In the wake of the February 1 hostage incident at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Facility in Smyrna, during which Lt. Steven Floyd was killed, the staffing situation has been aggravated by dozens of early retirements and resignations of prison staff members. President Klopp also stated that unless action was forthcoming, another catastrophic incident would likely occur in the state prison system before the end of the summer. He made this prediction during a live Read more

Trump’s Immigration EO Struck Down By Hawaii District Judge Derrick Watson

U.S Constitution Says in, 8 U.S. Code Section 1182: Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline. It has appeared Read more

Surveillance or Sedition

Obama, Soros, Hillary Triad Attempts to Destroy or Overthrow Trump Administration A new insidious entity has risen from the ashes of the Clinton Presidential defeat. An organization misnamed “United To Protect Democracy,” funded largely by George Soros, (Gyorgy Schwartz) seeking to discredit or eventually destroy the Trump Administration in any way, they may deem effective. This new organization headquartered in Obama’s multi-million dollar rental home in the nation’s capital is “the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against Trump,” one newspaper said. The organization is led by Ian Bassin, an attorney who worked at a Soros financed global activist group. Bassin also serve as Associate Counsel to the Obama White House, He also served on the Education Policy Working Group for Obama’s Presidential Team. Keeping with their agenda, the organization filed fifty Read more

The rally was mainly in opposition to the Read more

Politics Au Gratin

By Don Ayotte What Is Your Choice; Neoliberalism Or Constitutional Republic The truth about politics and political parties really is: Both are relative to what you and everybody believes they are, regardless of what they tell you they are. This is why both the Republican and Democratic parties have lost credibility with a large majority of the American public. President Trump is not a republican, even though he ran on the republican ticket. Instead, he is an Independent Populist. He believes in America and the American people. In reality, there is no far-left, left-of-center, center, right of center or far right, only political power and “popular issues” with popular candidates, who endorse those issues. This interpretation might sound like populism but that also is just another relative term to be determined by the hearer. That earth’s people start thinking for themselves Read more

Carper Worries About Losing Delaware’s Federal Funding

By Don Ayotte The Loss Of Federal Funding Will Be Delaware’s Stature as an “Ad Hoc” Sanctuary State. Senator Carper should not be sniveling and whining about losing federal funding for environmental projects. He will lose our funding himself as well as Delaware’s Socialist Liberal Leadership for becoming an “Ad Hoc” sanctuary state. The citizens of our state have had to pay the price far too long for illegal aliens that have entered our great nation, in spite of our laws, under the administration of an underachieving slack-jawed President Obama. Delaware’s Liberal Leading Henchmen gladly jumped aboard the “Free-Wagontrain” of federal grants to our state, as long as they supported the “Sanctuary State” bandwagon that Obama forced on the American people. Well folks, the free ride is over for those of you who benefited in many ways at the Delaware Citizen’s Read more

Former DE DAG Comments on Delaware’s Prisons

By: Ken Abraham, former DE Deputy Attorney General The death of Officer Floyd is a tragedy, whether or not he was one of the abusive guards who is a disgrace to the hundreds who go in there and try to do their jobs properly ( and I hear that he was ).  However, it does not surprise me. Having SEEN what goes on in our prisons, as I posted recently on our website, two words can account for most of the prison problems: NO ACCOUNTABILITY. Unless and until guards and others, like medical staffers,  who commit crimes from property theft, serious neglect of medical problems, to filing false reports, to outright uncalled for brutal beatings of inmates, are PROSECUTED, we will see the same problems. See our website, on "Prison Abuse" articles for much more. What is needed is not some "Commission or Task Force", and not a federal investigation as a colleague suggested. With such an investigation Read more

Obama, Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky and “Rules For Radicals”

Saul Alinsky’s book. “Rules For Radicals,” was first named “Rules For Revolution,” and has caused untold controversy since Alinsky published the book in 1971. I realize that one diary will not be enough to communicate the content of destruction this book holds for our Republic. When I first bought the book, I vowed to read it cover to cover before donning my pencil to write even one word. Alinsky opens in the book’s prologue by writing, “The revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, “Burn the system down!” Alinsky’s tactics were based not on Stalin’s revolutionary violence, but instead on the neo-Marxist strategies of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian communist. Relying on gradualism, infiltration and the, “dialectic Read more

Delaware NAACP Comments on Smyrna Prison Incident

By: C. Linwood Jackson, President NAACP Delaware State Conference MOVING FROM REVOLT TO RESOLUTION Finding a Path Forward Through Collaboration First and foremost, our condolences and prayers go out to Sgt. Steven Floyd's family. Loss of life under any circumstances is unconscionable. I believe we all prayed for an outcome where there would be no loss of life and again we mourn along with everyone affected by this. We have spoken briefly with the warden at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center and expressed our interest in working with him in particular and the DOC in general, in partnership with our NAACP prison branch to resolve any persistent issues highlighted by the demands made by the prisoners involved with this unfortunate turn of events. We hope that as the investigation moves on to identify Read more

White House touts bipartisan Praise of Gorsuch

Bipartisan Praise For The “Impossible To Oppose” Judge Neil Gorsuch “Sterling Legal And Academic Credentials” … “A Brilliant Legal Mind” … “Very Ethical” … “An Exceptional Jurist” Above The Law’s David Lat On Judge Gorsuch: “Stellar Credentials…” “In my view, the choice between Judge Gorsuch and Judge Hardiman comes down to how Establishment and elitist the president wants to be. Both judges have stellar credentials, but Judge Gorsuch’s shine just a little more brightly.” (David Lat, “Supreme Court Update: And Then There Were Four,” Above The Law, 1/24/17) Lat: “He’s Brilliant, Conservative And Impossible To Oppose.” (Mark K. Matthews And Kirk Mitchell, “What You Need To Know About Colorado Judge Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s Rumored Top Pick For The Supreme Court,” Denver Post, 1/30/17) SCOTUSBlog’s Eric Citron: “[Gorsuch’s] Read more

Travel Pause Hysteria

The people who are calling the travel pause from 7 nations a Muslim ban are insulting Muslims. It is a pause to retool our screening to ban extremists and protect the majority. Is it good or bad? We shall see in 90 days. Everyone needs to take a breath. Turn off fake news CNN and read the actual orders. I have never seen a network be so irresponsible. Could President Trump's eventual policy be terrible? Yes. It could also be terrific or anywhere in between. There is nothing evil about 90 days to design new policies. Let's see the new policies. I know that the previous administration had been disgraceful. It recognized that Christians in Syria and Iraq were subjected to genocide and did nothing to allow them in. Why protest the guy doing the right thing? They are so misinformed, it is heartbreaking. The way to stop the disinformation is with real love. To protect Christians, you Read more

Trump’s Energetic First Week, Campaign Promises Being Fulfilled

Trump Enters The Arena, Taking The Bull By The Horns While a majority are extremely pleased with Trumps first week in office, the progressive left and other leftist women organizations seemed to have week-long protests, with women dressed in vile costumes, brandishing profane placards, while their male counterparts cheered them on. These protests would cause even the most liberal of parents to prohibit their small children from watching their disgusting antics as they are broadcast on national media. Immediately after being sworn in, the new President ordered federal agencies to ease the “regulatory burdens” of ObamaCare. Agencies were ordered to waive, defer, grant exemptions from or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement of Obamacare in hopes that this order will lower the burden on individuals, families and patients as the President and the Congress work Read more

Doomsday Clock Set to 2.5 Minutes to Midnight

By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer The Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) has announced its decision to move its Doomsday Clock forward to two and one half minutes to Midnight, last Friday at 10 AM (EST). Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington DC, BAS Executive Director and Publisher, Dr. Rachel Bronson announced that " This year’s Clock deliberations felt more urgent than usual. On the big topics that concern the board, world leaders made too little progress in the face of continuing turbulence. In addition to the existential threats posed by nuclear weapons and climate change, new global realities emerged, as trusted sources of information came under attack, fake news was on the rise, and words were used in cavalier and often reckless ways. " The eighteen-page companion report, "It is two and a half minutes to midnight" (edited Read more
