  • Ohio’s Nuclear Power: Will it Stay or Will it Go?

    Will Ohio lose both its nuclear power plants? If gauging the response of legislators is any indication, Ohio’s nuclear plants seem to be doomed. Clearly, grassroots organizers such as Generation Atomic, the American Nuclear Society, and North America Young Generation in Nuclear have failed to convince legislators to act to save Ohio’s only nuclear generation assets. These organizers have been working for months under the ultimatum from FirstEnergy Corp, the plant’s owners: convince Ohio lawmakers to pass ZEN (Zero Emission Nuclear) legislation by June 30th or else the plants will close and decommissioning will begin. That threat carries with it...

    The election of Donald Trump last year set the stage for major changes in U.S. foreign policy and particularly American policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran. It was clear on the campaign trail that Trump’s views on Iran could hardly be more different than those of his predecessor, Barack Obama. Almost six months into his first term the administration is now well positioned to lay the foundation for a lasting Middle East legacy by boldly embracing the goal of regime change in Tehran. Whereas the Obama administration took great pride in the Iran nuclear deal it helped to negotiate,...

    Miley Cyrus has made a strong statement against Italian fashion house, Dolce & Gabbana, and their politics. In an Instagram post on Saturday, the 24-year-old posted a photo of her younger brother, Braison, walking in his first ever runway show — for Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2018 menswear collection that afternoon. After a long post of praise for the male member of the Cyrus clan, she adds a line about the brand’s much-buzzed about politics, noting that she is not one to support, no matter how happy she is that they chose Braison to represent them on the runway.

    Whenever the mainstream media awards a participation trophy to the loser of an election, it is sure bet they are awarding it to a Democrat. Such was the case with the June 17 Politico which awarded a participation trophy to Jason Kander who lost the 2016 U.S. Senate race from Missouri. No matter. As far as Politico is concerned he was really a winner as you can see from their title, How Jason Kander Won by Losing. What makes this article particularly amusing is how far overboard Politico writer Edward-Isaac Dovere goes in hyping the future political career of Kander....

    He said it. But if you repeat it, you’re a racist, bigoted Islamophobe. “Fight them until religion is all for Allah” (Qur’an 8:39). In recent statements and speeches, Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders have emphasized that the Islamic Revolution in Iran is only the first stage on the path to the spread of the rule of Shi’ite Islam in the Middle East and worldwide, and that the mission of advancing the Islamic Revolution to these heights falls to the IRGC commanders…. The following are translations of recent statements by senior IRGC commanders on this matter: On March 11, 2017,...

    I Shook Hands With Hitler Reincarnation Today And I think I saw Vincent Price peering out of the corner, quick to be out of sight hiding from me. But I saw him. Met the vacant eyes of Bela Lugosi passing in the bathroom. Eerie organ music played as I entered the doors for my interview. Had a nice conversation with a woman who’d, I imagine, takes classes in incompetency. They’re very interested in me and want to explore the next level in the process. She mentioned a few caveats, shrugged at the facts that there were 2 meetings a day,...

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — A judge has issued an injunction that will temporarily prevent the city of St. Louis from removing a Confederate monument from Forest Park. St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Robert Dierker on Monday issued the injunction and set a July 6 hearing for arguments over whether the city or the Missouri Civil War Museum owns the monument. The museum filed a lawsuit Friday against the city, contending the United Daughters of the Confederacy signed over the ownership rights to the monument last week. The city contends it controls the monument and wants to remove it soon. Dierker's...

    Australian tourists are unwittingly eating dog meat in Bali, according to evidence provided to the ABC's 7.30 program. The animals are brutally caught and then butchered not far from the beaches visited by more than 1 million Australians every year. Some of the animals are poisoned, posing a risk to human health, according to a leading toxicologist. Whilst eating dog meat is not illegal in Bali, killing animals cruelly or eating meat contaminated with poison is against the law, Animals Australia's campaign director Lyn White said. "The dog-meat trade breaches animal cruelty laws and food safety laws. That is a...

    As an American destroyer cruised off the waters of Japan in clear weather in the early hours of Saturday, only a few dozen of the crew of 350 were likely to be awake: standing watch, keeping the engines running, manning the bridge. Then, Navy officers with decades of experience at sea say, there were probably minutes of sheer terror aboard the Fitzgerald before the collision with an enormous container ship that killed seven sailors. “My guess is they suddenly saw the lights of the other ship coming toward them and tried to veer off,” said retired Adm. James G. Stavridis,...

    NEW YORK, June 19 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks rose on Monday, with the S&P 500 and the Dow hitting record highs with growth sectors such as technology in favor again as investors appeared to regain confidence in the economy after upbeat comments from Federal Reserve officials. Amazon.com's Friday announcement that it would buy Whole Foods and an upbeat tone from Federal Reserve speakers seemed to help reassure investors after the U.S. central bank's rate hike last week, according to J. Bryant Evans, portfolio manager at Cozad Asset Management, in Champaign, Illinois. "It looks like a bet that interest rates, such...

    "Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many." That's a compelling verse – call it a proverb – from the New Testament. It's a great admonition for all of us. It's one the left will pay for not knowing. During the early days of the Clinton impeachment, then-"journalist" George Stephanopoulos gave an insider threat to the world, clearly from the Clintons. He said that if Republicans continued their attempts against them, the earth would be scorched. If they went down, everyone else would, too. Here is the exchange, from 1998. Sam Donaldson: "Are...
