Bonini Goes Bannanas For Pot

Bonini announces on the senate floor, he is in favor of legalizing marijuana. After announcing on the senate floor, that marijuana should be made legal in Delaware, he stated that he would co-sponsor legislation to legalize marijuana if asked. This action would be a first for a GOP gubernatorial candidate in Delaware. The leftward drift of Delaware's GOP has been apparent to many for years and could be construed as a vain attempt to engage soft democrats and unaffiliated independents to their ranks. Delaware's GOP has seriously followed the national GOP's leftward drift causing a split in conservative ideology with the more conservative and growing "Tea Party groups." In recent elect election cycles, Delaware's GOP has repudiated and even campaigned against so-called Tea Party candidates. The rift has seriously splintered Delaware's Republican Party with nasty infighting and rancor. Read more

Will Obama Stand Behind The Party’s Presumptive Indictee

Sanders refuses to back down, vowing to take this fight to the Democratic Convention While Clinton has accumulated enough delegates to clinch the Democratic nomination without the "super-delegates, Sanders refuses to yield defeat. Can the hatred and differences between the two candidates be that strong? It would be interesting to be present at the upcoming private meeting between Obama and Sanders next week. Will Obama subtly threaten Sanders political career for failing to yield and endorse the host of the Benghazi Butchery? Oh, that's right, Obama was the "Top Dog" on that call. Challenging Hillary for any position after she has become the presumptive nominee could be dangerous to Sanders. Many people have seemingly committed "suicide" around the Clintons. Just coincidences I'm sure! Politics has become an increasingly dangerous business in America as well as Delaware. Read more

Pundits, Candidates And Loudmouths Vs Trump

It seems that daily these pundits, candidates and loudmouths prophesy Trump's doom. In the meantime Trump gains percentage points and delegates. The more percentage points and delegates Trump receives, the louder and meaner the adversaries get. This shows that the American people are not fooled, they won't accept the lies and rhetoric of GOP establishment insiders and refuse to take the bait. Watching Foxnews has lately become amusing as they give as much earned media time as Cruz and Rubio want and very little to Trump lately. Rubio's whole platform now has become a ranting and raving platform about Trump. It seems for the GOP that issues are no longer the primary concern of debates, nor are they important enough to debate I watched the CNN GOP debate on Thursday and watched half in amusement and half in horror as the debate never started. Instead, two rabid dogs attacked Trump Read more

Time to Change Political Party Registration???

COMMENTARY: Time to Change Political Party Registration??? By: Wolfgang von Baumgart, Staff Writer A recent survey by the Center for Public Integrity ranked the First State as 48th in state integrity and gave it an overall ‘F’ grade. Given the rather sorry state of our economy, numerous cases of poor financial management, increased loss of individual freedom and opportunity, new voices in Delaware politics are needed now, more than ever. However, given the dirty - if not utterly filthy - nature of politics (as evidenced by the arrogant, distorted, libelous, toxic and vitriolic environment some political blog sites) many good, caring, kindhearted, creative and intelligent people are discouraged from seeking elected office, lest their reputations be dragged through the mud in partisan character assassination campaigns. As a result, critical public questions and issues requiring Read more
