Delaware Endangered by a few Democratic Senators: Guest Opinion by Judson Bennett

OPINION Folks, the bottom line is that nothing changes in Delaware , other than the first state's financial crisis is probably beyond redemption. The Democrats are in power in Delaware and have created a dangerous $400 million dollar deficit by over spending. They do care about enhancing the killing of babies in late term abortions, but sure as hell can't manage the state's finances. If a law needs to be changed, such as the prudent SB 53 which basically protects corporations from arbitrarily and capriciously being forced into a sale by a Delaware Chancellor, the Democrat elected officials in Dover are never going to make such a change, because they will always listen to the self-serving representatives in the Delaware Bar Association who are all connected with the judiciary and their own self-serving agendas. Delaware is definitely going to lose its incorporation franchise because Read more

Leadership or Luggage: Guest Post by Mike Protack

Leadership or Luggage? Everything rises or falls with Leadership no matter if it is the private sector or the non profit sector. Let me be clear, if you are the leader you are responsible for everything that happens or fails to happen in your enterprise-unless you are a political leader in Delaware. The failure of these pseudo leaders is the overwhelming problem for this small state. Nothing else matters more than leadership. The alternative to Leadership is Decline and decline is not a condition but it is a choice and it is reversible. Decline is not pre ordained nor is success, it is the result many factors and not a series of random events out of the control of those who call themselves leaders. In reality, our leaders are individuals with small minds and big egos. Unfortunately, Delaware does not have a leader of any caliber at the highest level, the state does have officials Read more

A Dark Day in Delaware Politics Guest Post by Senator Bryant Richardson

By State Senator Bryant L. Richardson This past Tuesday was one of the darkest days in Delaware politics, as Senate Bill 5 passed in the House of Representatives with 22 votes. With 41 state representatives, only 21 votes were needed to pass the bill by a majority. The vote was along party lines. There are 25 Democrats and 16 Republicans in the House. Three Democrats went not voting or voted no. Two Republican representatives were absent for the vote, including Deborah Hudson, one of the sponsors of the bill. The fact that Hudson’s name was on the bill is one of my biggest concerns, since she is minority whip, in other words, part of the House Republican leadership. SB 5 was fast-tracked through the Senate by state Senator Brian Townsend as the prime sponsor. In the Senate the bill received 11 yes votes, the minimum number needed to pass. Again, votes were mostly along party Read more

Gun Grabber Alert

June 14th is the day we recognize the adoption of our glorious banner of liberty, it is Flag Day.  It is also the Army Birthday.  242 years of armed Americans standing up against oppression.  They were able to do so because they had their own weapons.  On this hallowed day, the gun grabbers in the Delaware House of Representatives are holding a hearing on House Bill 222 which the NRA describes this way. House Bill 222 would allow an individual’s family members or law enforcement to petition the court for an ex parte restraining order if they consider the individual to be a danger to themselves or others simply because the individual owns, possesses or purchases a firearm.  Under this bill, an ex parte order would be issued by a judge based solely on a brief, unsubstantiated affidavit made by a petitioner and absent any input made by the individual on which the order is targeted.  Read more

Delaware going Backwards

Sadly, Delaware is going backward. One would think that the legislature would be focused upon the severe budgetary crisis, but apparently, an undiscovered need to rip away basic informed consent protections for women evaluating abortion and eliminating protection after 20 weeks for the unborn child is paramount. It is time for good people to consider running for the legislature. This bill passed by 1 vote in the Senate and 2 in the House. I am doing several things to change the dynamic. Stay tuned to this blog, but first for my hardcore activist is an action group, the Delaware Republican Conservative Caucus.  Click and apply. The state of Delaware is in a challenging situation. The good news is that challenges are made to be met. I did not start this group, but I intend to reactivate it because now is our time. We have strong new leadership at the state level in the GOP. The Democrats Read more

Trump World 6-11-17

Normally it would be a great week for the President. Great economic news, the infrastructure summit, and the President was largely vindicated with the Comey testimony. Normal is not how the press behaves with this President. The media spent 2 weeks speculating what former Director Comey was going to say to the exclusion of real coverage of economic news, missiles shot off in North Korea and Rhamadan Terrorist attacks around the world by the Islamic Radicals. Frustrated, President Trump predictably unleashed @realdonaldtrump. You can see our retweets of the highlights on our twitter feed or of course visit @realdonaldtrump. The #FakeNews MSM doesn't report the great economic news since Election Day. #DOW up 16%. #NASDAQ up 19.5%.

Why does Delaware have such a budget issue?

Health Care is a major driver of the state budget issues. It cries out for fundamental reform. An approach worthy of study is the health pact approach.  It forms networks of doctors who deal directly with patients at an affordable flat rate instead of having the middle men of big insurance.  For $212 a month a family can have 99% of its medical needs met. Health Pact could be a boon for people with pre-existing conditions in our state exchange because it would one, cover them and two be attractive enough to bring healthy people into it.  We need to take the exchange and make it a market based approach.  Frankly, I believe that we should integrate Medicaid into such an approach as an option with Medicaid serving as a catastrophic and paying for medicine.  It would have the benefit of controlling costs and expanding the universe voluntarily of the exchange.  We could automatically Read more

Rally for Life today

Thought of the day, we live in a country where birth control can be had for $10 for 3 months and condoms are a few dollars a box. How is there an excuse for abortion on demand, let alone late term abortion like SB 5 permits? Excluding the moral travesty of taking an innocent human life, it doesn’t make economic sense. Every surgical abortion stops a beating heart. It is a heart that wants to beat for love, justice, opportunity and hope. We are not just aborting their lives, but what makes us civilized.

Stand today for life with your fellow citizens in the Rally for Life.

Trump World June 3rd

Welcome to a new column that we are introducing. Trump World may have multiple authors. This President has been interesting for news. One of the best ways to deal with it on a local blog may be a new weekly (or more when necessary) summary of the world from the perspective of Presidential policy, tweets, or speeches. The President had the most meaningful foreign trip of any President's first-time venture since Teddy Roosevelt. He addressed terrorism, got praise from Muslim leaders, Jewish leaders, and Christians concerned about terrorism. He righted the relationship with Saudi Arabia by preferring it to Iranian hegemony. He put NATO on notice to act like a real partnership, not an American protectorate. This week Donald Trump proved his worth. He withdrew from the Paris Accord. Seventy-five billion annually in new foreign aid will not happen. One trillion in costs to our economy Read more
