    Several official Ohio government websites were hacked and filled with pro-Islamic State propaganda Sunday morning. The sites included the official Ohio governor site, as well as the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, Casino Control, Ohio First Lady, Office of Workforce Transformation, Office of Health Transformation, Inspector General and Medicaid. The sites' homepages were replaced with a black background and accompanied by music. The top of the page reads, "Hacked By Team System DZ." Below that, the sites said: "Anti: Govt all word. You will be held accountable Trump, you and all your people for every drop of blood flowing...

    On June 1, when he announced pulling out of the climate change agreement, President Donald Trump put his finger on the key problem, which was deliberately part of the plan. He attacked "the draconian financial and economic burdens the agreement imposes on our country" while creating a so-called Green Climate Fund which would cost the United States "a vast fortune" to be sent to the other nations of the world. In other words, Trump's pull-out from the agreement works AGAINST Russian interests and those of the global socialists. Nevertheless, the propaganda campaign continues. In July, Netflix releases the film "Chasing...

    In a move that will likely make the Trump administration really happy, a major manufacturer is shifting jobs from China to the U.S. Foxconn, the company known for making iPhones and other big-name gadgets, plans to invest $10 billion in a production plant in the U.S — specifically somewhere in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana or Texas. The plant could create up to 50,000 new jobs. President Trump hinted at this deal in June while visiting Wisconsin for his "workforce development" tour. "Just backstage, we were negotiating with a major, major, incredible manufacturer of phones and computers and televisions,"...

    Foxconn (2317.TW), the world's largest contract electronics maker and a major Apple Inc (AAPL.O) supplier, plans to invest more than $10 billion in a display-making factory in the United States and will decide on the location of the plant next month. The Taiwan-based firm has been eyeing U.S. investments for some time and its CEO, Terry Gou, had previously said the company hoped to spend over $7 billion to set up a display-making plant in the country - which has no panel-making industry but is the No.2 market for televisions. Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, is...

    A voice mail that threatened U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers and his family landed a Westerville man in federal court Wednesday, charged with a crime that carries a 10-year prison term if he is convicted. In the voice mail that authorities said was left with the Upper Arlington Republican’s Hilliard district office on Sunday, the caller mentioned the June 14 baseball practice during which House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and four others were wounded or injured in Alexandria, Virginia. “I’ve seen the prayer ya’ll were saying at the baseball diamond ... I think ya’ll better hit your knees and pray...

    The governor’s Medicaid expansion has harmed Ohio. Now he’s set to mortally wound the GOP’s repeal-and-replace bill.Ohio governor John Kasich’s public-relations campaign for Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion could wipe out whatever chance remains for Congress to pass a substantial Obamacare-repeal bill. Medicaid expansion puts working-age adults with no kids and no disabilities on a welfare program previously reserved for the elderly, the disabled, children, pregnant women, and impoverished families. It’s responsible for a majority of Obamacare enrollment nationwide, and three-fourths of Obamacare enrollment in Ohio. House conservatives fought for passage of a bill that freezes Medicaid-expansion enrollment in 2020. But some...

    Columbus City Schools is "working toward the termination" of Chris Dodds, a garage assistant supervisor who posted an anti-LGBTQ message on social media ahead of the Columbus Pride Parade on Saturday. “I hope this event turns out like the Boston Marathon a few year’s back. All f-g's should be killed or at least relocated," Dodds wrote in a message posted to the Columbus Pride Parade's Facebook page. In an email sent to NBC Out, a spokesperson for Columbus City Schools, Jacqueline Bryant, confirmed the district is "working toward the termination of Mr. Dodds for these highly inappropriate comments."
  • 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...

    Conservative Treehouse ^ | June 10 2017 | Sundance
    During a short CNN broadcasted segment a panel of Ohio voters were asked about their impressions of fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to congress. Unfortunately for CNN the panel exhibits the oft undervalued common sense of the American electorate. This sample is representative of what I call ‘reverse-gruberism‘: People who are firmly grounded in ordinary common sense who can see through the obfuscation and BS of the professional political class.

    The Minneapolis Star Tribune ^ | June 9, 2017 | Gary Abernathy
    HILLSBORO, Ohio – As publisher and editor of the Times-Gazette, a small daily newspaper in this southwest Ohio town (pop. 6,600), I thought our endorsement of Donald Trump for president last year seemed innocuous enough. Then someone said to me, “Did you see that Rachel Maddow mentioned the Times-Gazette last night?” Seriously? Next, Politico called. I soon discovered that our two-sentence endorsement was being reported — and often ridiculed — far and wide. The nearby Cincinnati Enquirer produced a post headlined “This Ohio paper is one of only six to endorse Donald Trump.” Not one of six in Ohio —...

    Anthem is exiting the ObamaCare marketplace in Ohio, leaving around 20 counties in the state without an insurer willing to sell a health plan in its exchange for 2018. The company cited uncertainty as a reason why it’s exiting the exchanges in all of the state’s counties, particularly the question of whether or not the Trump administration will continue payments to insurers that compensate them for reducing out-of-pocket costs for lower-income enrollees.

    Attorney General Mike DeWine targeted five pharmaceutical companies in a sweeping lawsuit filed today, alleging misrepresentation and misinformation on their part in the growing American opiate addiction crisis. The companies are Janssen Pharmaceutical, Allergan, Purdue Pharma, Endo and Cephalon. "They are the most prominent," DeWine said of the defendants. "They constitute a majority of the drugs." He insisted that the companies played an active role in flooding the market with prescription painkillers, which led explicitly to addiction for untold numbers of Ohioans. A woman who lost her daughter to opiate addiction appeared with DeWine today, explaining to reporters how powerless...

    The city of Cleveland on Tuesday fired the police officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice in November 2014 and suspended another officer after investigations of the high-profile incident. Police Chief Calvin Williams announced that Timothy Loehmann was fired for having lied on his job application and not disclosing that he had resigned from his previous position as a police officer in Independence, Mo., to avoid being fired for insubordination, emotional immaturity, dishonesty and mishandling his gun.
