Biden Taps Debate Nemesis Kamala Harris as VP

first_imgThe Democratic national convention will be held virtually next week commentating with Joe Biden making his acceptance speech on Thursday. Print up the “Biden Harris” bumper stickers. Joe Biden says that he has selected a “serious fighter” as his Vice President of nominee, Senator Kamala Harris of California…a state Biden does not need help winning.This is an historic pick as Harris is the first African-American woman to be selected as a presidential running mate. Harris’s mother is of Indian dissent and her father is Jamaican.During the first debate, Harris went after Biden on his record especially with African-Americans, specifically on bussing.This selection shows that Joe Biden does not hold grudges, according to pundits, and will put diehard Democrats at ease.Harris, 55, is two decades younger than Biden who is questionable to make it through a second term. Internally the Biden campaign thinks she can be president.Harris is still a supporter of Medicare for all and civil rights issues.  Senator Harris has a legal background as the attorney general for California.Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor, was Biden’s other top pick and she has already sent her congratulations to Harris. Rice could become Biden’s Secretary of State if he is elected President.last_img read more

BATTLING HARPS HELD TO DRAW BY WEXFORD YOUTHS

first_imgFINN HARPS 0 WEXFORD YOUTHS 0 – FINN HARPS were denied all three points by Wexford Youths in a match dominated by the goalkeepers.Kevin McHugh worked Youths keeper Graham Doyle on a number of occasions in this clash at Finn Park.But the home side were to be denied again and again – particularly in the second half and Peter Hutton will see this as three points lost rather than a point gained. The goalless draw leaves Harps joint top with Longford.The sides had gone in level at half-time after what was a fairly dull first 45 minutes.Michael Funston had the first shot of the game after just four minutes but a block from Gary Delaney allowed goalkeeper Graham Doyle to gather with ease.Funston had another chance on 20 minutes, this time firing over the bar – and an overhead kick from McHugh went the same way ten minutes later. Youths created the best opportunity 10 minutes before the break but the unmarked Joey Mulchay prods a quick free from Shaun Corcoran wide of the target.Both sides must have had their ears roasted at half-time as the tempo was considerably higher in the second half.But Harps had to thank keeper Gallagher twice for keeping them in the match, first denying Shane Nolan with a fine save – and then pulling off a better save as Nolan sent Glen Hawe through on goal.Crossan and then McHugh responded with great efforts for Harps, the latter’s free kick on 66 minutes forcing Doyle to palm the ball over.As Harps upped the pressure it was that man McHugh who was again on fire, this time firing in a 20-yard shot – only for Doyle to save again. McBride had a late chance to win it but fired over.Harps Line up: Gallagher, Cowan, Crossan, McMonagle, McNulty, Brolly, Funston, McBride, McGowan, McHugh, McVeighSubs: Thomas Bonner, Jonny Bonner, James Doherty, Michael Doherty, Mark Forker, Michael Lynch, Aaron O’HaganBATTLING HARPS HELD TO DRAW BY WEXFORD YOUTHS was last modified: April 5th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BATTLING HARPS HELD TO DRAW BY WEXFORD YOUTHSlast_img read more

In a high tempo high scoring game, Red Hughs shocked the much fancied Milford side with a well deserved victory.It was an excellent team performance, and hard to single out any one individual performance, but Odhran Doherty would have to get a special mention with a personal tally of 1-11, with 1-08 of that coming from play.The Red Hughs team hit the ground running from the start and it was 10 minutes into the game before the Milford team realised they had a game on their hands. Milford went in at half time 1 point ahead, but an excellent second half performance saw this Red Hugh’s close out the game with a confident, determined, team performance. Ryan Wright had an excellent game in nets with a number of game changing saves and his kick outs were a major factor in the team’s success. Ryan Gallen, Josh Cronolly and Jason Callaghan were solid in the full back line, while Darragh Gallagher, Tomas Doherty and James Gallagher dominating the Half back mid-field area with the help of Mild fielders Odhran Doherty and a massive work rate from Jason Woods. Ryan Dullaghan (2-01), David Gallen (0-02) and Aiden Gallen combined well in the half forward line and continually posed a threat.Stephen Carlin and Tim Callaghan (2-0) injected real pace into the full forward line and picked up all the breaks from the excellent hard working full forward Cormac McMenamin (0-1), who either caught and laid of to the incoming half forward mid field players or broke to the two wing forwards.James Callaghan was substituted for Stephen Carlin. Conor Gallagher was unfit to play due to injury but provided much need encouragement to his team mates throughout the game.Excellent team performance well deserved victory.Senior men Seniors and reserves play Convoy at home this Saturday in the league.

Now Ms Kerrigan, from Convoy, wants the Director of Public Prosecutions to appeal the sentence.Ms Kerrigan said she is fearful Harkin will strike again and attack another woman.“I am fearful he will do it to another woman. Sometimes, I think it was a waste of time going to court because we didn’t get the justice we deserved.“But if my story helps one woman to come forward, then it will all have been worthwhile.“I was scared of him and I was scared of how people would react to me when I told them what he had doe to me,” said the brave young mother.Donegal Daily first broke the story of the brutal attack on Ms Kerrigan.Harkin, from St Eunan’s Terrace in Raphoe, attacked Danielle so viciously that he left his footprint on her leg.He only stopped beating her to get a drink of water from the couple’s former home.Ms Kerrigan has now revealed she has installed CCTV at her home because she still fears what Harkin is capable of.The full horrific story is in today’s Mail on Sunday.WOMAN BATTERED FOR 90 MINUTES TO APPEAL ATTACKER’S SENTENCE AFTER HE WALKED FREE was last modified: November 18th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:attackerconvoyDanielle KerriganEamonn HarkinprisonRaphoelast_img read more
