  • The Facebook Factor in the GOP's Battle to Take the Senate

    American Thinker ^ | August 13, 2013 | Jonathon Moseley
    Politically active liberal Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook is now blocking Republican candidates from his social media website Facebook in the GOP’s bid to retake control of the U.S. Senate in November. Facebook deleted late Monday night an “Event” this author created to ask for donations to Kevin Wade, running for U.S. Senate as a Republican in Delaware from his 4,937 Facebook friends. Freshman Democrat U.S. Senator Chris Coons is up for re-election this fall. His approval rating was only at 49% a year ago in September 2013 according to a University of Delaware poll. The year since that 49% approval last...

    Free Republic ^ | June 23, 2014 | Jonathon Moseley
    With the July 8 deadline looming, Delaware Republicans still have no declared candidate for United States Senate in 2014 to run against Democrat Chris Coons. However, a distinct possibility emerging is successful businessman Kevin Wade, who was the 2012 nominee of the Delaware Republican Party (DEGOP). As the country's circumstances worsen and it becomes clear to Republicans that really there is no one else actively considering the task, Kevin Wade is taking a new look at the race. Christine O'Donnell has ruled out a rematch, citing -- genuine and serious -- family reasons. Her father passed away last year from...

    Washington Post ^ | July 23, 2013 | Rachel Weiner,
    Christine O’Donnell is considering a new bid for the Senate. The conservative activist who rode a tea party wave to victory in a Delaware special election primary four years ago is interested in challenging Sen. Chris Coons (D) in 2014, the Wilmington News Journal reports. O’Donnell would have difficulty winning over skeptics in the Delaware GOP, many of whom see her as a liability. After beating moderate Republican Rep. Mike Castle in the 2010 primary, O’Donnell lost in a landslide to Coons amid a series of missteps and damaging revelations about her past.

    Senate votes on climate change and the Keystone XL oil pipeline laid bare divisions among Democrats — and underscored why the White House, not Congress, will be where the critical climate decisions reside in President Obama’s second term.Several votes during the freewheeling debate over a nonbinding budget plan provided a political barometer of where the chamber, including vulnerable Democrats, stand on the topics. Advocates of the proposed pipeline scored a symbolic victory Friday when 62 lawmakers voted for an amendment backing the project to bring oil from Canadian tar sands projects to Gulf Coast refineries. Seventeen Democrats supported Sen....

    Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Chris Coons (D-DE) have teamed up to create the "American Growth, Recovery, Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Act," more simply known as the AGREE Act. This legislation focuses on policies that both Democrats and Republicans have proposed and endorsed. After all the gridlock in Washington, it looks like this bill, sponsored by Rubio and Coons, might actually start creating jobs in our horrible economy. I commend both Rubio and Coons for taking the first step to introduce a true bi-partisan bill that can be passed by both houses of Congress and the White House. What is in the...

    Republican Tom Kovach has defeated Democrat Tim Sheldon in the race to become County Council's next President. Kovach, an attorney and former state Representative, easily outdistanced Sheldon, a Council member and union pension fund manager. Kovach tallied 58 percent of the vote to Sheldon's 42 percent. Democrats have a big edge in voter registration, but low turnout may have negated that advantage.

    Mike Castle would have lost the US Senate race in Delaware to Democrat Chris Coons, according to surprising exit polls by CNN in Delaware on election day, November 2, 2010.

    Most polls have predicted that the closely watched Delaware Senate race between Democrat Chris Coons and Republican tea-party favorite Christine O’Donnell was going to be anything but close. One poll last week had Mr. Coons up by 10 points, while all the others gave him a far more comfortable margin. But Democrats in Delaware remain skittish. In a noon email alert to supporters, Coons campaign manager Christy Gleason said close monitoring of voter turnout in the state’s 41 representative districts showed “lower turnout in New Castle and Kent counties than we’re comfortable with.”

"I am committed to extending the Bush tax cuts for 98 percent of Americans for everybody making up to $250,000, but I would extend them for everyone," the Democratic candidate for Delaware’s Senate seat told me on “GMA.” "I’d be willing to extend them for several years for all Americans, of whatever income if that also allows us to reach a bipartisan compromise that makes real progress in offering...

    Chris Coons- Not Just a Bearded Marxist– Hmm. Well this is odd. It’s like the state-run media is intentionally hiding this report to protect democrat Chris Coons. Certainly they wouldn’t stoop that low, would they? Chris Coons was sued three times in 2007 for retaliating against public employees for their political views.

    The "establishment of religion" clause of the First Amendment means at least this: Neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force nor influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion. No person can be punished for entertaining or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. No tax in any amount, large or small, can...
  • O'Donnell Questions Separation of Church, State in Senate Debate

    Fox News / AP ^ | 10/19/10
    Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell of Delaware on Tuesday questioned whether the U.S. Constitution calls for a separation of church and state, appearing to disagree or not know that the First Amendment bars the government from establishing religion. The exchange came in a debate before an audience of legal scholars and law students at Widener University Law School, as O'Donnell criticized Democratic nominee Chris Coons' position that teaching creationism in public school would violate the First Amendment by promoting religious doctrine.

    DARFUR RHETORIC JUST DOESN'T MAKE MILITARY SENSE By Christine O'Donnell The News Journal June 9, 2007 In a remote African region called Darfur, the terrorist group Janjaweed is committing brutal genocide by riding in on horses, setting fire to villanges, and slaughtering Christians. It is said this massacre is perpetrated by the Sudanese government and therefore its citizens are left nearly defenseless. Until recently few knew of this region and even fewer new of the tragedy. It was dismissed as a civil war. Fortunately, the eyes of the world are now focused on this crisis - so focused that it...

    . . . The CNN debate was the “tipping point,” O’Donnell told me. This was before the new poll showed her gaining on Coons. “We shattered my opponent’s glass jaw,” she says. “You’re going to hear the glass falling on the floor.” She won’t be lacking for money. Since the primary, she’s raised $4 million, enough to pay for “tougher” TV ads attacking Coons. “I believe he’s gotten a free ride so far.” Indeed he has. As a college senior, he wrote about being “a bearded Marxist.” It was a joke, he says, and the press has accepted his explanation...

    Delaware debate moderator tells Coons, 'Go for it' Mark J. Fitzgibbons Nancy Karibjanian, member of the Delaware media and a University of Delaware supplemental faculty member, was co-moderator of the O'Donnell-Coons debate on CNN. Not long into the debate, Karibjanian zeroed in on O'Donnell's financial and education controversies. KARIBJANIAN: Let's open the discussion on correcting some of the financial issues here by talking about some of your own personal financial problems. And most people know about it by now, including an IRS lien that was for about $12,000 in taxes and penalties from '05. There was the '08 mortgage default...

    When I first mentioned Christine O’Donnell’s Zoominfo profile I said: A ZoomInfo spokesman claims that the “user verified” tag means O’Donnell verified the information on the ZoomInfo profile herself. Color me skeptical: how in the world would he know? ZoomInfo and LinkedIn should be more transparent — for example, they could release the e-mail address used by the person who set up the account. Reader Aaron Worthing convinced Zoominfo that he is famed rock musician Tom Petty Aaron joins me in calling on Zoominfo to release the e-mail address of the person who set up the O’Donnell profile: So Zoominfo,...
