LETTER TO THE EDITOR: No Nobel for Trump

Good grief, Beverly, haven’t you been paying attention? A peace prize for meeting with the dictator of the most brutal regime in modern times which meeting now lends legitimacy to that regime? (“President Trump vs. Philadelphia Eagles,” Letter to the Editor, June 15). Especially since nothing from that meeting produced anything new. What I read […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Spending money on a ‘Space Force’?

President Trump recently announced plans to create a “space force.” Seriously. “ warfighting in space …” Actual quote attributed to a senior congressional aide. Congress cries now that there is no money for children’s healthcare (CHIP), schools, Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security and homeless vets to name a few, but we now can apparently dig up money […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Number of statements on Trump just don’t add up

In response to Beverly Monahan’s piece in the Opinion section of the Delaware State News, June 15, dear, you missed the point as to the reason for NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. (“President Trump vs. Philadelphia Eagles”) If you have an African-American friend, ask them. As for expressing the players’ animosity and distress […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Trump derangement syndrom

I watched Bill Maher on Friday night go so far as to hope that the economy collapses resulting in a recession, a statement that received a standing ovation from his in-studio audience. His logic is that’s the type of event needed to win the next election cycle. I’ve heard a phrase coined over the last […]

SOUND OFF DELAWARE: Politicizing pardons

This is your public forum. We welcome your opinions, which can be emailed to newsroom@newszap.com or posted online under the stories at www.DelawareStateNews.net. In a recent letter to the editor Ken Abraham of Dover asserted that President Trump is using his pardoning power purely for political purposes: • If Trump walked on water, someone would […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Trump using pardons for political purposes

I happen to specialize in pardons these days, and have learned much about their purpose, their consequences, and the process in various states over the past 12 years. Our president is misusing his power to pardon for political purposes, and in so doing he is doing nothing to inform the public about why so many […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Incomplete news

Today’s issue (May 31) contains three articles concerning President Trump. “Trump tells young athletes to play to win,” “Kim Kardashian goes to White House” and “Trump planning tariffs on EU”. Wheres the story “Trump signs Right to Try Law”. It occurred on the same day? You know who else didn’t cover it? MSNBC, CNN and […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Celebrations for teams

Kudos to President Trump for canceling the White House celebration to honor the Philadelphia Eagles. In fact the White House or any president should not be using taxpayers’ money to honor and or celebrate the victory of any team or athlete. Let the hometown of those winners spend their money and not federal tax dollars […]

COMMENTARY: ‘Spygate’ provides some perplexing questions

No matter which side or what scenario you buy, we can lay this one at the feet of then-President Obama. Issue: the assignment, by the FBI, of an informant/spy to check on the Trump presidential campaign. President Trump calls it “Spygate.” Obama’s director of national security, James Clapper, says it is a good thing for […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fascism on rise in United States

Arizona Immigration Customs & Enforcement separated 1,400 migrant children from their parents. Arizona ICE lost the children. World War II historian Robert Paxton says fascism is “a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation, or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy, and purity, in which a mass-based party […]
