  • Should next US president consider an Iran nuke deal 2.0?

    al-monitor ^ | June 24, 2016 | Barbara Slavin
    Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), Iran nuclear kabuki last year, told the Council on Foreign Relations June 23 that the Joint Plan of Action, JCPOA had been successfully implemented so far... Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton is for the agreement, but Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been skeptical. Asked about Trump’s threats to renegotiate the agreement, Coons called that possibility “a fool’s errand.” Coons said that personal relationships between Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, and between Energy Secretary Ernie Moniz and Ali Salehi, Iranian Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] — have been apparently been effective....

    The Democratic senator who holds the seat long occupied by Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. has put the Obama administration on the verge of victory on the Iran deal.Sen. Chris Coons announced on the campus of the University of Delaware Tuesday that he would provide the 33rd vote against a resolution of disapproval for the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran. That puts the agreement one vote short of the number needed to sustain a presidential veto.Coons began his speech to an abundance of local television cameras by expressing concerns about provisions of the deal, including enforcement mechanisms.(video at link)“I...

    Chris Wallace, host of “Fox News Sunday,” couldn’t help but ask Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) about a video, which went viral, of his daughter looking uncomfortable while Vice President Joe Biden whispered in her ear and gave her a kiss on the head during the senator’s swearing in ceremony last week. “I have to ask, cause a lot of people have been speculating about it, does she think the vice president is creepy?” Wallace asked. “No, Chris,” Coons said with a chuckle. “She doesn’t think the vice president is creepy.” To the contrary, Coons went on to say that Biden,...

    West Harlem residents say a posse of raccoons has taken over their neighborhoods and in some cases even broken into their homes. “These things think they live here and they actually walk in if you leave an opening,” said resident Lauren Flanigan. Pictures from residents showed a raccoon making itself comfortable on the patio of a West Harlem home, and even coming up to the door. And that raccoon was not alone, residents said. “They came in the kitchen, and they’re not that friendly, and they also pushed the window screens in,” Flanigan told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco. “They climb over...

    In a rare show of bipartisanship, Sen. Marco Rubio teamed up with a couple of Democratic colleagues to propose a bill on Tuesday to help startup businesses and immigrant entrepreneurs create jobs. The bill would cut taxes and ease regulations. Its most controversial provision would provide visas for high-skilled immigrants to remain in the U.S. It builds on an earlier bill Rubio, a Florida Republican, introduced with Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware.

    Hotair ^ | 11/17/2011 | Ed Morrissey
    On its face, the bill crafted by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Chris Coons (D-DE) looks modest enough. The aptly-named AGREE (American Growth, Recovery, Empowerment, and Entrepreneurship) Act takes parts of job-growth proposals from both sides of the aisle with wide bipartisan support and rolls them into one proposal. The two eliminated those components that create controversy, so that this Congress can act at least incrementally to improve the economic climate for job creators while larger reform efforts collide on Capitol Hill.The incremental approach on policy actually is modest, if also effective and impactful. But the effect of the AGREE...

    Record labels are clamoring for a chance to have their artist lip-synch alongside 16-year-old YouTube sensation Keenan Cahill in, of all places, his bedroom. But could a proposed amendment to the federal copyright infringement law potentially land Cahill, or any person lip-synching copyrighted material in a YouTube video, behind bars? Senate Bill 978, a bipartisan measure introduced last month by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.), is backed by supporters who say it closes glaring loopholes in current copyright infringement law created by the realities of the digital age. “As technology rapidly evolves,...

    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.

    Christine O'Donnell and her victorious opponent in the Delaware senate race, Democrat Chris Coons, campaigned fiercely against each other during the midterms. But now they've buried the hatchet, quite literally. The Tea Party darling and the senator-elect buried a hatchet — actually, they put a small ax in a box of sand — in the southern Delaware hamlet of Georgetown on Thursday, the AP reported (via The Huffington Post) in line with a time-honored state tradition. As policies of Delaware state politics dictate, the senate race contenders took part in a ceremonial horse-drawn carriage and classic car parade, which preceded...

    A close 'friend of Kenya' has won a US Senate seat in hotly contested mid-term elections. The Monday elections were held in many states. Mr Chris Coons, a Democrat, easily beat Republican Christine O’Donnell for the Delaware Senate seat. US Vice-President Joe Biden formerly held the seat for decades. Coons, whose connections with Kenya nearly cost him victory when his opponents questioned his commitment to the US, said his Kenyan experience helped shape his political views. "In many ways, Kenya made me who I am. What I saw in the slums of Mathare and Kibera on one hand and Karen...

    The Delaware Democratic Party claimed Tuesday that Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell's supporters were rallying outside polling places and creating a disturbance that amounted to illegal "voter intimidation" -- a charge the O'Donnell camp firmly denied. "They're clearly panicking. There's no evidence of that," O'Donnell campaign manager Matt Moran told The state Democratic Party first leveled the charge in a brief written statement Tuesday afternoon. "There have been some reports of voter intimidation from the O'Donnell campaign or her supporters throughout the state. This activity is illegal and contrary to our rule of civility in Delaware," the party said.

    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.”

    In an appearance in Delaware today at the Tea Party Express Tour, Christine O’Donnell rocked the stage in her epic fight to banish Chris Coons, the bearded Marxist/Progressive, in the Delaware Senate race. The battle really boils down to what you value in your state leadership: morality and ethics or collectivism and Progressive policies. O’Donnell embodies American values, while Coons embodies greedy, power-hungry elite arrogance.

Apparently in response to the Coons campaign’s failure to denounce the article, the campaign said “Classless Coons goons have proven yet again to have no sense of common decency or common sense.”Gawker’s conduct here was reprehensible, but attempting to conflate Chris Coons with them is patently unfair.Update: In a statement to Mediaite, Chris Coons campaign communications director Daniel McElhatton denounces Gawker’s story.

Turnout As nearly everyone who has ever watched an offyear election closely has observed, this election will be determined by turnout, that is: Who shows up to vote?

    Republican Christine O'Donnell has cut 9 points off her opponent's lead in the Delaware Senate race and may be within striking distance of Democrat Chris Coons. According to a new poll, Ms. O'Donnell, who was trailing by 19 points just two weeks ago, has erased nearly half of that margin and now trails by 10 points (51%-41%). And the distance between them may be even smaller since this poll was taken before the latest sexist attack against the Republican and the backlash that has resulted from it.

Around the world there is unbridled excitement for Chris Coons among hardline Marxists. There is good reason too. Coons would hold the highest elected office ever for a self-described bearded Marxist in the United States. The Communist International, while appreciating President Obama as a step in a good direction, views him as more of a social democrat in the European tradition. So anticipation continues to build among Communist hardliners for...

    During the debate on CNN between Republican Christine O’Donnell and Democrat Chris Coons who are the candidates for the U.S. Senate from Delaware, Chris Coons was asked a direct question. Ms. O’Donnell asked Mr. Coons if there would be any direct benefit from cap-and-trade for the company that he formerly worked for, a company whose current CEO is Chris Coons’ father in-law and which Chris Coons owns stock in. The company, W.L. Gore, also known as Gore-Tex is involved in making air filtration filters for natural gas turbines and also a material used in fuel cells. It is clear that...

    O'Donnell: Coon's Senate votes could bring family billions By Matthew Boyle - The Daily Caller Published: 11:06 AM 10/22/2010 Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, in a new campaign ad, said the family of her Democratic rival stands to gain “billions” from votes he would cast in the Senate. Using a line of attack that has helped other Republicans in this campaign, Tea Party favorite O’Donnell accuses her opponent, New Castle County Executive Chris Coons, of blindly following the policies of President Obama. “She’ll stand for her principles against anyone,” the ad says. “But Chris Coons falls in line, ready...

    Chris Coons changed his previous position on the Bush era tax cuts this morning telling me that he would support extending all of the tax cuts for everyone for "several years." "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...

    If you like high unemployment, if you think taxes should be raised when the economy is weak, if you think we need more politicians in Washington who will help themselves to profitable deals, and if you like politicians who have trouble understanding the Bill of Rights, Chris Coons is your man. Here are some informative links on Chris Coons: Higher unemployment, more debt and higher taxes… Coons' impact on the Delaware economy Chris Coons' Vote in the Senate Would Boost His Family's Profits Chris Coons raised property taxes 54%.

    It's been quite the 24 hours. Liberals just love trying to beat up on Sarah Palin. They repeatedly question her intelligence. And she just wipes the poop off the floor with them. Mark Hemingway had a glorious article at the Washington Examiner and I am posting the whole thing: So the Los Angeles Times reported on a recent Sarah Palin event: Seeking to channel the sign-bearing, flag-waving enthusiasm of the “tea party” movement into ballot-box victories, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told hundreds of supporters Monday they couldn’t “party like it’s 1773″ until Washington was flooded with like-minded conservatives. Immediately,...

    CHRIS COONS LIED, GRANNY DIEDOctober 20, 2010In all of life's tribulations, there is nothing so aggravating as being condescended to by an idiot. In last week's CNN debate in the Delaware Senate race between the astonishingly well-spoken Christine O'Donnell and the unfortunate-looking Chris Coons, O'Donnell had to put up with it from Coons for 90 minutes. O'Donnell wiped the floor with Coons, moderators Wolf Blitzer and Nancy Karibjanian, and the idiotic University of Delaware students asking questions -- all of whom were against her. (With the nation on the verge of another great depression -- the brunt of which, to...
  • WaPo/AP Caught Revising the O’Donnell Story Without Issuing a Correction

    How much did the left show its keister on O’Donnell’s alleged gaffe? So much so that the AP/WaPo story on the subject was almost completely rewritten last night, and without an official correction. After the break I will have screen caps and a cut and paste of the text of the article, but let’s start with just the first paragraph. Before: WILMINGTON, Del. — 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...

    The media are in a full-scale hyperventilation following Tuesday's separation of church and state comments by Delaware Republican senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell. As an Investor's Business Daily editorial points out, O'Donnell was right when questioned about this issue during a debate with Democrat candidate Chris Coons, and all the nattering nabobs of negativism filling the airwaves are wrong: There is, of course, no such passage. Those scoffing law scholars might want to look at the Constitution's unadorned text instead of the judicial activist law review articles that take up so much of their day. What the Constitution does say, in...
