Pursuit Leads to Theft Apprehension- Ocean View

Ocean View- The Delaware State Police have apprehended 30-year-old Bryan Denegal of Dover, DE after he stole items from several vehicles and led police in pursuit.
The incident occurred on February 3, 2020 at approximately 10:59 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to the 30000 block of Teal Court, Ocean View, for a report of a theft in progress.  Upon arrival, Troopers made contact with a victim who advised he witnessed a suspect, Bryan Denegal, enter his vehicle and proceed to take items.  The victim approached Denegal, when Denegal took off running towards his vehicle, a 2007 black Chevy Cobalt.

While still continuing to flee, Denegal struck a mailbox on Marlington Road.  Denegal continued traveling south on Cedar Neck Road at speeds exceeding the posted speed limit, when he lost control of the vehicle and collided with a telephone pole and a tree.  Denegal was not properly restrained and was ejected from the vehicle.
Upon contact with Denegal, the Trooper observed a strong odor of alcohol.  Denegal was transported to the Beebe Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Bill to cap insulin insurance co-pays at $30 passes in Virginia House

RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) — A bill that would prohibit insurance companies from charging more than a $30 co-pay for a 30-day supply of insulin passed the Virginia House of Delegates on Tuesday.

The vote for Delegate Lee Carter’s HB 66 was nearly unanimous at 98-1. Delegate Matthew Fariss (59th District) voted no, and Delegate Nick Freitas (30th District) did not vote.

The bill now awaits approval by both the State Senate and Governor Ralph Northam.

It comes as insurance prices have skyrocketed in the past two decades for the more than 7.5 million diabetic Americans who rely on it, despite no change to the drug, with the average price for a 20-milliliter vial going from about $20 to more than $250, according to a House of Representatives report in March 2019. The price of a vial tripled between 2002 and 2013, and nearly doubled from 2012 to 2016.


Traffic Stop Leads to Weapon Charges- Seaford

Seaford- The Delaware State Police have arrested 39-year-old Wesley G. Bush Jr., of Philadelphia, PA after a traffic stop led to the discovery of weapons.
The incident occurred on February 3, 2020 at approximately 2:11 p.m., when a Trooper observed a black 2002 Mercedes Benz traveling northbound on Sussex Highway in the area of Bethel Concord Road, Seaford above the posted speed limit.  A traffic stop was initiated and contact was made with the driver and sole occupant, Wesley G. Bush Jr.  Upon contact with Bush, the Trooper detected an odor of marijuana.  Bush was found to be in possession of approximately .94 grams of marijuana.  A subsequent search of the vehicle was conducted when the Trooper located a silver semi automatic handgun and a 3″ blade knife.  A computer inquiry revealed that Bush was a person prohibited from possessing a firearm or deadly weapon, and the handgun was found to be reported stolen out of Philadelphia, PA.
Bush was taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 5 where he was charged with the following:
  • Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony
  • Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony
  • Possession of a Firearm or Ammunition by a Person Prohibited (2 counts)
  • Possession of a Deadly Weapon by a Person Prohibited
  • Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon (2 counts)
  • Receiving a Stolen Firearm
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Speeding
Bush was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $63002.00 cash only bond.

Trump Slams Dems' "Unmitigated Disaster" In Iowa: "Nothing Works, Just Like They Ran The Country"

President Trump just can't stop winning.

Not only did Dems fail to win enough Republican votes to call John Bolton to testify at the president's impeachment trial in the Senate (which so far has attracted a tiny fraction of the attention paid to the Senate trial of former President Clinton), but in one of the greatest unforced errors in American political history, they also botched the Iowa caucus, helping to restore the widespread cynicism that permeated the 2016 contest.

And since Trump isn't the kind of politician to resist taking a victory lap, he did just that Tuesday morning in a scathing tweet reminding Americans why they shouldn't trust the Democrats to run the country.
The Democrat Caucus is an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works, just like they ran the Country. Remember the 5 Billion Dollar Obamacare Website, that should have cost 2% of that. The only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is “Trump”.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020


App blamed for botched Iowa caucus created by Hillary Clinton campaign alum

The app blamed for Iowa’s stalled Democratic caucus results was slapped together by an alum of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign.

Gerard Niemira, CEO of Shadow Inc. — the company tapped by the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) to build an app for reporting the results of the crucial, first-in-the-nation caucus — served as director of product on Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

As of early Tuesday, the IDP had still not released the results of the chaotic caucus.

Shadow’s role in building the app was not publicly known before the failed rollout.

Is the Coronavirus Outbreak China's Chernobyl?

To refresh our memories, it was in 1986 when the No. 4 nuclear reactor in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded and was burning as the solid fuel rods of Uranium melted down. The smoke and steam from the fire and firefighting spread across Northern Europe and the Russian steppes. The number of deaths attributed to this disaster could be as high as 100,000 but accepted estimates are closer to 27,000.

It was the failure of the Soviet system in dealing with a coordinated response that shook the faith of the people. They began to question whether the Soviet government had abandoned the interests of the people in favor of propaganda. The conclusion was that it certainly was not the health and welfare of the people which was first and foremost in Soviet governmental policy. Gorbachev himself wrote in 2006:
“The nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl… was perhaps the true cause of the collapse of the Soviet Union.”
It is clear that Gorbachev could not bring himself to admit that it was Ronald Reagan’s foreign policy which was the underlying cause. Regardless of the causes of the collapse, it seems history is about to repeat itself.

Montana GOP lawmaker claims the US Constitution says it's okay to SHOOT socialists and calls them 'enemies of the free state'

A Montana state GOP lawmaker said that he believes the US Constitution calls for people who identify as socialists to be jailed or shot.

State Rep. Rodney Garcia made the comment at a state party gathering in Helena, Montana, Friday, after former interior secretary Ryan Zinke spoke at the election season kickoff event.

Garcia said that he was worried about socialists 'entering our government' and being 'everywhere' in Billings - the city he represents - the Billings Gazette reported.


Europe's Green Deal: Same Hysteria, Same Destruction

Today’s brand of the left-leaning politician is all about substituting what sounds good for what actually works. Modern politics, whether in the U.S. or Europe, is about taking a chainsaw to everything that produced even a modicum of success to appease the deities espousing progressive orthodoxy. There is no better example of this than fossil fuels, energy sources that have lifted us out of destitution and darkness and given us incredible wealth the world had never witnessed. What is the left interested in doing? Confiscation, cronyism, centralization, and coercion to combat climate change. The European Union will achieve these objectives through the boondoggle-in the-making Green Deal.

What Is The Green Deal?

The European counterpart is a bit more realistic than the American version, aiming for net-zero emissions within 30 years rather than in a decade. But that is probably the best thing you can say about this proposal, which was approved by the European Parliament – some policymakers had requested even greater ambitions to be inserted inside the climate change scheme. Overall, the Green Deal is bad economics that will affect the already dreary conditions of Europe and exacerbate the slowdown.



The plastic bag has become anathema to the effort of saving Mother Nature from humans’ toxic ways. But humans are now being blindsided by a shortage of paper bags – which have proven to be an even worse alternative.

With the old-fashioned single-use plastic bags sent to an extinction rebellion fiery hell, we are being told that the only way forward is recycling, and using environmentally-friendly alternatives made of paper, cotton, polyester or other suitable materials.

Seventy-four countries have banned single-use plastic bags made from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) plastic with varying degrees of enforcement, and 37 countries now impose a charge per bag. New York State will also join the full ban from March 1 this year, but as the need for paper bags increases, the retail industry is facing a volume crisis.


How long will it take for Joe Biden to give good answer to Hunter questions?

Joe Biden really doesn’t want to talk about son Hunter’s Ukraine windfall and thinks it’s outrageous that the media keep asking about it. Don’t they know whose side they’re on?

The latest Biden blowup came Monday, as NBC’s Savannah Guthrie brought up the 50-grand-a-month Hunter drew from Ukrainian natural-gas firm Burisma — though Hunter knew zip about Ukraine or gas, except that dad was the White House point man on Ukraine.

“No one’s found anything wrong with his dealings with Ukraine except they say it sets a bad image,” Joe answered.

“Do you agree it sets a bad image?” Guthrie asked. The ex-veep’s reply: “Yes, and my son said that.”


Bernie Sanders told ninth graders that US actions in Vietnam were 'almost as bad as what Hitler did' during his failed run for Vermont governor in 1972

Bernie Sanders told a group of Vermont high school students in 1972 that the United States' actions in Vietnam were 'almost as bad as what Hitler did.'

Sanders, the 78-year-old senator who is currently surging in the race for the Democratic nomination for president, made the remark when he was running for governor of Vermont.

The comment was reported at the time by The Rutland Herald. It was unearthed recently by the right-leaning web site Washington Free Beacon.

Sanders, who was 31 years old at the time, was running as the candidate for the Liberty Union Party, which was an offshoot of the antiwar movement.


‘Hamilton’ Star Accused A London Bar Of Racism. The Bar May Take Legal Action.

In late November in a pair of viral tweets, British “Hamilton” star Giles Terera claimed he and a group of eight black actors were refused entry to a London bar due to their race. He said a group of white people behind them were allowed in without incident.

“I just took a group of 8 Black actors who i’m directing in a play about American blues musicians to Aint Nothin But The Blues bar in soho. We were racially profiled and refused entry as 10 white punters were allowed in past us unchecked. WTF,” he tweeted.

“This group of talented, and hard working actors was left devastated, confused and upset while the manager said ‘I dont care who you are or what you are.’ That this happens anywhere is a fucking disgrace, the fact it happens at venue which also exploits Blues music is sick,” he continued.

The “Ain’t Nothin’ But” Blues Bar, where the incident was alleged to have happened, responded to Terera’s claim in a Facebook post, accusing the actor of pulling “the ‘race’ card”:



The pace is picking up in Annapolis as the deadline to introduce legislation is fast approaching. Senator Carozza testified in support of legislation to create a fairer eviction process for all parties involved in Wicomico County. Senator Carozza voted to sustain Governor Larry Hogan’s vetoes on legislation that was considered during the 2019 legislative session. Senator Carozza also participated in a special Women’s Caucus event commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment.


Senate Bill 176—Wicomico County— Landlord and Tenant— Repossession for Failure to Pay Rent— Procedures was heard in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee on Tuesday, January 28. This legislation was introduced by Wicomico County Senators Adelaide Eckardt and Mary Beth Carozza. Senate Bill 176 would provide more notice to a tenant facing eviction so they can remove their belongings from the property. Officials from the Wicomico County Government and City of Salisbury testified in support of this bill.

“This local, targeted bill makes for a more efficient eviction process, provides increased protections for consumers, reduces blight in local neighborhoods, and frees up law enforcement for other priorities,” Senator Carozza said during her testimony in strong support of Senate Bill 176.


The full Senate on Thursday, January 30, 2020 reconsidered legislation that Governor Larry Hogan vetoed in 2019. One of those bills was Senate Bill 830, which reestablishes the Oyster Advisory Commission with new membership and requires the Department of Natural Resources to develop new consensus recommendations for enhancing the fishery management plan for oysters.

“It [Senate Bill 830] destroys the good-faith effort of time and resources devoted by all the stakeholders—DNR, the Oyster Advisory Commission, the watermen, and the environmental groups,” Senator Carozza said during her testimony in support of Governor Hogan’s veto, which was overridden on party lines.

“This bill does an end run around the various stakeholder groups and causes a delay on moving forward with oyster management...and destroys the trust of our working watermen and their families. I will be voting to sustain the Governor’s veto, and encourage my colleagues who will not be, to support initiatives that include and are fair to our watermen and be part of the process to rebuild trust, remembering that a waterman is on our Maryland State Seal.”


'Gay' Migrant Fleeing 'LGBT Persecution' Fathers Two Kids in Ireland

An African migrant fathered two children in Ireland after being granted asylum to escape anti-LGBT persecution in his home country, according to reports.

Irish authorities have realized they don’t know the man’s age, origin, or name — and now doubt his claim he is homosexual.

The man arrived in Ireland over ten years ago, posing as a West African refugee fleeing a “homosexual relationship with a person whose family was threatening to kill him,” the Irish Sun reports.

However, it has been discovered the man has since had two children with an Irish woman, and now prosecutors are pushing for his immediate deportation.


Report: $90 Billion in US Taxpayer Money Donated to Global Slush Fund to Fight AIDS But a Portion of the Funds Made It to Clintons, Soros and Others Instead

An investigative report revealed that $90 Billion in US Taxpayer money has been funneled to overseas organizations in the name of helping those with HIV AIDS. In reality the funds are distributed to organizations including the Clinton Health Access Initiative and George Soros’s Open Health Institute.

Corey Diggs put together a report that shows that efforts to combat HIV AIDS may just be fronts for money laundering schemes ran by the Clintons and George Soros. The story begins in August 2000, a few months before Bill Clinton’s second term ends. On August 19, 2000:
Bill Clinton signed a bill establishing the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, intending to locate it inside the World Bank in Switzerland.

The Washington Post reported “Clinton, who will travel to Nigeria and Tanzania, is directing Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers to begin negotiations with the World Bank to set up the trust fund.”
In her efforts to unfold the truth, Diggs uncovered that money sent from the US to help fight AIDS actually ends up in the hands of the likes of George Soros:


China Furious With US on Growing Travel Ban

Chinese government officials are angry with the United States over its growing travel ban in the wake of the growing coronavirus outbreak, pointing out that the World Health Organization has said stringent restrictions are not necessary.

"A certain country has turned a blind eye to WHO recommendations and imposed sweeping travel restrictions against China," Hua Chunying, the Chinese Foreign Ministry's spokesman, tweeted on Saturday, reports The Washington Post. "This kind of overreaction could only make things even worse. It's not the right way to deal with the pandemic."

Further, Hua said that "certain U.S. officials' words and actions are neither factual nor appropriate."

Hua complained that such “unfriendly U.S. comments” were “certainly not a gesture of goodwill" toward China as the death toll from the virus continues to grow.


Trump expanding base of black, Hispanic, suburban voters, has 51% approval

The improving economy and voter anger with the partisan impeachment process have helped to boost President Trump’s support among blacks, Hispanics, independents, and suburban women, according to a new survey.

The latest Zogby Analytics poll, shared exclusively with Secrets, also showed that the president’s job approval rating continues to edge up despite his impeachment and the ongoing Senate trial.

“The president continues to receive a high approval rating near or slightly above 50% for the third straight poll. He has rebounded with Independents, women, suburban voters and suburban women,” said pollster Jonathan Zogby in his analysis.


First openly gay federal judge Deborah Batts, who was set to preside over Michael Avenatti's trial on charges of stealing money from Stormy Daniels, is dead at age 72

United States District Judge Deborah Batts, the first openly gay member of the federal judiciary, has died at age 72, just three months before she was set to preside over Michael Avenatti's embezzlement trial.

Batts passed away on Sunday. So far, her cause of death has not been made public.

'Deborah Batts was a trailblazer in every respect: an openly gay African-American woman who became a United States District Judge after a distinguished career as a federal prosecutor and law professor,' Manhattan federal Chief Judge Colleen McMahon said in a statement.


VA Deputy James Byrne Fired

Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie on Monday fired his deputy, James Byrne, without explanation other than a loss in confidence, Axios reports.

“Today, I dismissed VA Deputy Secretary James Byrne due to loss of confidence in Mr. Byrne’s ability to carry out his duties,” Wilkie said in a statement. “This decision is effective immediately.”

Byrne was confirmed by the Senate about five months ago, following more than two years working in senior positions in the department.

Democrats' Total Failure and Utter Humiliation Delights All Real Americans

Now that the Democrats’ dream of stealing the 2016 election through the power of MSNBCNN-fueled outrage, and through plots by fussy lib bureaucrats, lies in ruins, some people might argue that we should be gracious in our total victory and not mock the stinging pain that accompanied this latest agonizing failure. Some people are sissies. Hoist a stein overflowing with the tears of these losers and chug chug chug away.

Then tap another keg. This party is finally getting started, and it’s going to rage on until January 2025.

Maybe even longer, if you listen to the Bozos, Pennywises, and Krustys they find for those CNN panels. Their genius takeaway from their soul-crushing defeat in trying to impeach Donald Trump for the crime of revealing the massive corruption of Senile Joe and his son Snorty Strippertap is that Trump might decide to never leave office. That’s a good point. What would they do if he didn’t? Take up arms like real men would? Yeah, right.


Trump State of the Union: Challenges facing president in coming year

For President Trump, 2020 is shaping up to be a critical year as the United States barrels toward a contentious general election in November as Americans decide whether or not they want four more years of his administration.

While Trump has touted a booming economy and low unemployment figures, his 2020 has already been marred by slumping poll numbers, an ongoing impeachment trial, attacks from his Democratic rivals on the campaign trail and combative relations with foreign powers.

Below is a look at some of the challenges facing the Trump administration as the clock ticks down toward Election Day 2020:


Trump acquittal to spur more House Democratic investigations

President Trump's looming acquittal in his Senate trial doesn't mean he'll be off the hook in the Democrat-held House that impeached him.

If anything, say House Democratic lawmakers, investigations are likely to ramp up in the nine months before Election Day. That means the Senate impeachment acquittal set to happen Wednesday concerning charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress related to the Ukraine military aid affair will be just a midpoint rather than an end of clashes between the Democratic House majority that took power in January 2019 and the Trump White House.

The impeachment trial of Trump, 73, is set to end Wednesday. The only lingering question in its outcome is whether any Republican senators will defect and vote to convict Trump. Two Republican senators bucked their party to vote for witnesses in the trial — Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah.


Judicial Watch: Eight Iowa Counties Have Registration Rates Larger than Eligible Voter Population

Judicial Watch announced that eight Iowa counties have more voter registrations than their eligible voting-age population. According to Judicial Watch’s analysis of data released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) in 2019 and the most recent U.S. Census Bureau’s five-year American Community Survey, eight Iowa counties are on the list of 378 counties nationwide that have more voter registrations than citizens living there who are old enough to vote, i.e., counties where registration rates exceed 100%. These 378 counties combined had about 2.5 million registrations over the 100%-registered mark. In Iowa, there are at least 18,658 “extra names” on the voting rolls in the eight counties at issue.

Under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA), Judicial Watch sent notice-of-violation letters to 19 large counties in five states (California, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, and Colorado) that it intends to sue unless the jurisdictions take steps to comply with the law and remove ineligible voter registrations. Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act requires jurisdictions to take reasonable efforts to remove ineligible registrations from its rolls.

Aspiring Chicago rapper who hired hitman to kill his mother so that he could use her money to customize the Mustang she bought for him is sentenced to 99 years in prison

An aspiring rapper in Chicago was sentenced to 99 years in prison after he and a hitman he hired to gun down his mother were found guilty of murdering the woman.

Qaw'mane Wilson, who raps under the name 'Young QC', was sentenced by Judge Stanley Sacks, in Cooks County, on Friday.

Sacks also gave the hitman, Eugene Spencer, a similar punishment, 100 years in prison for the slaying of Wilson's mother, Yolanda Holmes, in 2012.

'The word is 'matricide', meaning murder of one's own mother,' the judge said as he stared down from the bench at Wilson and Spencer, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
