  • Delaware man killed with own gun in Steelton home invasion, shooting: Dauphin County coroner

    HARRISBURG — A Delaware man was killed with his own gun after a botched attempt to invade a Steelton home. The fatal shooting started as a John Doe case, with the victims saying they did not know the man or his accomplice, Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick said Tuesday afternoon. While the coroner's office has since identified the man killed in the incident, Hetrick said he is withholding the name to allow the man's wife to discuss the death with the couple's young children in Wilmington. Hetrick described him as "a black male that is not really from this area"...

    Bernie Sanders will never be president. But unless Hillary changes her strategy – and soon – he can still wind up toppling her. Something remarkable is happening in American politics. For the first time in our history, a socialist is running a close second and gaining ground on the frontrunner in a presidential race. Anyway you look at it, Senator Bernie Sanders is making history and may very well play a deciding role in who will be the next president. How real is the Sanders movement? Well, at this point in his campaign in 2007, Barack Obama had 180,000 donors...
  • Delaware, Key To Corporations, Is Now The Only U.S. State Without Air Service

    Forbes ^ | 6/29/15 | micheline maynard
    Cities and states across the U.S. regularly lobby airlines to add flights and routes, arguing that air service is vital to economic development. But one of the most important places in the country to corporations — Delaware — now has no commercial air service. The Wilmington News Journal reports that Frontier Airlines quietly dropped flights last week to Wilmington’s New Castle Airport. That leaves the state as the only one in the country where airlines do not fly. Frontier spokesman Jim Faulkner told the paper that the airline discontinued service because it wasn’t profitable. “If market conditions change, we may...

    What happens when two police officers walk down the street with signs that say "Free Hugs"? The Newark Delaware Police Department released a heartwarming video on their Facebook page that answers that question. In the video, which already has nearly 5 million views, Corporal James Spadola and Officer First Class Aaron Olicker offer hugs to anyone who wants them. Spadola explained that he came up with the #HugACop idea because there has been so much negative news surrounding police. "I just wanted to come up with a positive time between the police and the citizens," Spadola said.

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday delivered a stinging blow to President Obama’s trade agenda by voting to prevent the chamber from picking up fast-track legislation. A motion to cut off a filibuster and proceed to the trade bill fell short of a 60-vote hurdle in the 52-45 vote. Sen. Tom Carper (Del.) was the only Democrat to back it. Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) switched his vote from yes to no to reserve his ability to return to the measure at a later date. Fast-track is a top legislative priority for the White House, but it has run into significant...

The senators, including 26 Democrats and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), want Obama to take executive action to "ban the box," referring to a question on job applications that asks if an applicant has any convictions. "We ask you to require federal contractors and agencies to refrain from asking job applicants about prior convictions until later in the hiring process," they said in a letter to Obama on Monday. "This policy would eliminate unnecessary barriers to employment for all job...

    The presidential ambitions of Hillary Rodham Clinton have become ensnared in an obscure gold-mining project in Haiti, as the Democratic favorite for the presidency begins her second run for the White House. In a story that suggests cronyism, questionable ethics and a blurring of the lines between charity and profiteering, The Daily Mail reported on Sunday that Hillary Clinton's brother, Tony Rodham, sat on the board of VCS Mining when the unlisted, Delaware-based junior was granted a permit to mine gold in Haiti following a massive earthquake on the impoverished island nation in 2010. The permit was the first to...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren recently appeared on one of the late night talk shows, beating the class warfare drum and arguing for billions of dollars in new social programs paid for with higher taxes on millionaires and billionaires. In recent years, though, blue states such as California, Illinois, Delaware, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland and Minnesota adopted this very strategy, and they raised taxes on their wealthy residents. How did it work out? Almost all of these states lag behind the national average in growth of jobs and incomes. So, if income redistribution policies are the solution to shrinking the gap between rich...

    It’s doubtful that many voters care as much about Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails as reporters do. They’re probably not too wound up over the foreign contributions flowing into her family foundation, either. Cumulatively, though, these latest headlines about Clinton, along with other stories sure to come, reinforce her vulnerabilities as a candidate. Democratic primary voters are about to be reminded on a semiweekly basis of what left a lot of them so ambivalent about Hillary in 2008 — namely, the perception that the Clintons are like an unregulated industry within the party, impervious to scrutiny and contemptuous of anyone...

    WASHINGTON — When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addresses a joint session of Congress in March, it is unclear whether everybody invited will actually show up. Democrats have criticized House Speaker John Boehner for circumventing the administration when he invited Netanyahu to speak, and the White House has already said Obama will not meet with him when he’s here. BuzzFeed News asked several Senate Democrats whether they planned on skipping the speech or not. Most said they either hadn’t thought about it or they hadn’t decided. But there were no hard answers in the negative. Only one senator definitively said...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A heated exchanged between President Barack Obama and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey) broke out Thursday over whether the U.S. should reimpose sanctions on Iran amid ongoing negotiations over the country's nuclear program, according to two senators who were in the room. Menendez, the leading Democrat pushing for additional sanctions against Iran, forcefully pressed Obama on the need for additional sanctions during a meeting in which Obama urged Menendez and other senators to drop their efforts to pass sanctions legislation. Additional sanctions, Obama argued, could torpedo ongoing negotiations over Iran's nuclear program. The unusually sharp exchange, between...

Obama said that as a former senator himself, he understood how outside forces — like special interests and donors — can influence senators to act, one of the senators recounted.

The shift, announced Tuesday by Sen.

    BRANDYWINE, Del. – There’s no doubt that state officials everywhere get tired of local school district officials constantly demanding more money to meet their needs. But those states that impose expensive policies on school districts create their own grief. If they refuse to give districts the tools to manage their own costs – particularly labor costs – they can expect their phones to keep ringing with calls from desperate school officials. The state of Delaware’s statute regarding paid days off for public school employees is a good example of this problem. The law gives school employees one paid day of...

    When it came time for the US Senate to vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline, Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) “clout” did not have much of an impact on fellow Democrat senators.

    The Senate narrowly rejected legislation to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline on Tuesday, handing a defeat to the oil industry and dealing a major blow to Louisiana Democrat Mary Landrieu, who staked her political career on the outcome. The Senate voted 59-41 for the legislation, falling one vote shy of the 60 needed for passage under the deal bringing it to the floor. But Keystone supporters insisted the defeat would be short-lived. Republican leaders are vowing to try again after they take over the chamber in January — when they will have more than enough votes to get a measure...

    Delaware’s Democrat U.S. Senator Chris Coons has outsourced over 2,170 high-paying Delaware jobs to China, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland from his family’s business W.L.

Whereas Democrat Party policies harm the nation's business environment and drive employers out of the U.S.A., liberals come close to accusing Republicans...
