    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) told CNN Friday that President Trump should be impeached after acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said the Trump administration had frozen military aid as leverage to get Ukraine to investigate a conspiracy theory about a DNC server. "To me, it's totally inappropriate. It's an abuse of power. Now I know that there are presidents that will withhold aid because they have policy differences, but this is not a policy difference. So my view is that look, I fought with people on the air about 'Is there a quid pro quo?' and 'Does...

    The United States Postal Service has introduced a new service that you may or may not find useful. Informed Delivery lets you preview the front exterior of incoming mail on your computer or phone; you can also track packages and leave delivery instructions for those packages. This isnt something that the USPS has developed just for its customers. According to an FAQ on the post offices site, the USPS is already creating digital images of the front of your letter-sized mail; however, it is now making those images available to customers before the mail is actually delivered. Once...
  • Kasich Brags about Getting Elected at 30, Says Big Guy Will Say if He Should Run for Prez

    I try to like people, but John Kasich represents a real challenge. The guy really rubs me the wrong way. Somehow, in the midst of all the Tillerson-Pompeo talk, Kasich turned up on MSNBC this morning. Speaking of the special election in Pennsylvania today, Kasich bragged about having been elected to Congress at age 30. That, according to Kasich, makes 33-year old Dem candidate Conor Lamb a little old. Kasich made his 2020 strategy pretty clear, saying that the emergence of third parties is more realistic than its ever been. When host Stephanie Ruhle asked him flat out if he...
  • Loose talk about war with North Korea is irresponsible

    Washington Post ^ | December 25, 2017 | John R. Kasich
    With tensions continuing to build between the United States and North Korea, theres growing talk by politicians and TV pundits that we are on the brink of war. In truth, we shouldnt be anywhere close. This increasingly hot war of words including loose talk about the probability of war does nothing to bring us closer to where we need to be on North Korea, especially when military options short of war remain on the table. In fact, with millions of lives at stake, waging a war of words is a distraction from the serious task at hand. Any...

    Carolyn Gray stepped out of her Rosecrest Lane home in River Ridge Friday afternoon (March 24) and was shocked to find the mailman on the ground in her front yard. "He was laying in the grass, flat on his back," Gray said. "He had an armful of mail." Gray, 79, and a couple who was passing by rushed over to help the letter carrier, later identified as Mitchell Molitor, 55, of Metairie. They weren't sure whether he had suffered some sort of medical emergency like a heart attack. But Molitor's "wobbly" gait and glassy eyes convinced the couple to confiscate...

    ---SNIP--- On Jan. 30, the AG's Office said, the mailman had parked his mail truck on Harding Avenue in Morton to deliver mail to homes in the area. That's when the driver of a Nissan vehicle pulled up and stopped directly in front of the mail truck. As the mailman got out of his vehicle, the Nissan driver complained that the mailman was blocking the road and yelled, "This is my hood," authorities said. Later, as the mailman tried to walk by, one of the occupants in the Nissan slapped a piece of mail from the carrier's hand, the AG's...

    Ohio Governor John Kasich is comparing candidates like Donald Trump to the “Prince of Darkness” while declaring himself as the “Prince of Light and Hope.” “Look, we have a lot of candidates who are like the ‘Prince of Darkness,’” Kasich, who reminds voters frequently that his father was a mailman, said in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt. “I consider myself the ‘Prince of Light and Hope’ and I don’t spend all my time getting people riled up about how bad everything is.” Kasich, who struggled in the polls after he repeatedly attacked and lectured Donald Trump’s approach to...

JOHN KASICH: I saw a crowd booing this woman who was being escorted. That’s not the spirit of Jack Kemp. I mean, we are people that can tolerate differences and respect people, and this is nonsense. That is not the Republican Party.

    Former U.S. postal worker who says he got lazy sentenced Its long been said that mail carriers deliver through snow, rain, heat and gloom of night. Maybe thats because if they fail to do the job right, they could end up charged with a federal crime. A now-former U.S. Postal Service worker from Eugene learned that the hard way after police recovered nearly 1,000 pieces of undelivered mail from two bins on his front porch in July. The bins contained primarily merchant advertisements (or junk mail), but included 27 voter ballots from Mays primary election and more than 200 items...

    Report: Chicago To Fight Gun Violence With Letters Chicago police are going to hand deliver letters to people suspected of committing or being victims of gun crimes in an effort to stem violence in the city, according to a new report. Starting Friday, a district commander will be delivering letters warning certain targets in that district not to commit violent crimes, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The pilot program is targeting individuals off a heat list developed by a Yale professor, who studied murders on Chicagos West Side between 2005 and 2010 and found a small network of people was responsible...

    Lazy postal worker burns, buries undelivered mail BELFAIR, WA (KOMO/CNN) - A disgraced mailman is in trouble again after admitting to burying thousands of pieces of mail in his backyard. Postal investigators state mailman Richard Farrell is accused of using a backhoe and burying the undelivered mail in a deep trench. "Just because I was lazy, and I became a not very good employee," said Farrell. "I just wanted to get out of their as soon as possible." According to court documents, in 2010, fellow coworkers discovered Farrell dumping mail in a recycling bin. Those actions prompted investigators to follow...

    After 63 years, U.S. Postal Service delivers calendar The 1950 Pennsylvania Railroad calendar never made it to James W. Flanagan, general manager of The Scranton Times. He would never need it: he died in December 1949. But on Friday, 63 years after his death, the U.S. Postal Service made a delivery. A mail carrier, with no explanation of where the package had been the last 63 years, handed it to Chris O'Hora at The Times-Tribune's front desk. The calendar, rolled in a long tube, soon made its way to the office of Bobby Lynett, a publisher of The Times-Tribune and...

    American Thinker ^ | 3/19/2012 | Jack Cashill
    A few days ago I got a call asking whether I knew anything about the Ayers family mailman. I had heard of him, I said. I remembered liberal blogger Steven Diamond having interviewed the fellow a few years back, but I paid it little mind, as the information seemed too limited to pursue. The caller then sent me a video interview with the mailman by WND sleuth Jerome Corsi. The video made me sit up and pay attention. The mailman is a real person. His name is Alan Hulton. He seems entirely credible, and he has a story to tell....

    Keith McVey is no ordinary mailman. He finished his afternoon deliveries, betraying no sign that anything out of the ordinary had occurred save for the blood on his uniform and the cut on his lip. Back at the post office, he was greeted with cries of disbelief: "Did you hear? Keith saved another life today." McVey now can't walk down the street without being honked at by passing cars filled with admirers -- or, apparently, without saving a life. "He's a rock star in our eyes," says Tina Starosto, a receptionist at King Apartments, where a sign declaring "Keith Our...
