    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH)...The latest text messages from the anti-Trump officials show how they were feeding anti-Trump articles to the press.

So, there was certainly a leak strategy going on. The most troubling aspect of all...

    After an Ohio parent blew the whistle on a morality test given to a high school class, the Hilliard City School District sent the teacher who gave the test to time out. Students were given a 36-question test about various ethical situations in which they were asked to choose what actions were OK and which were not. But the questions, given to a 10th-grade language arts class at Hilliard Bradley High School, crossed a line as far as parent Todd Sandberg was concerned, The Columbus Dispatch reported. Sandberg said the test was graded in a way that it would tell...

    Association of Mature American Citizens ^ | September 7, 2018 | Outside Contributor
    Democratic Party power-player Steve Phillips is behind the rise of four potential far-left governors who have already won their primaries. The San Francisco attorney is a mega-wealthy self-identified student of “Marx, Mao, and Lenin” directing huge resources into socialist and communist-led groups, with the goal of putting his personal far-left proteges into governor’s mansions in Maryland, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona. Phillips and his partners in the highly secretive group Democracy Alliance hope that by electing far-left governors into four currently Republican-led states, the drive to impeach President Donald Trump and destroy his “Make America Great Again” agenda will be accelerated....

    Ohio State University employs nearly 90 diversity-related administrative employees, which costs taxpayers in the Buckeye State about $7.3 million in salaries and benefits annually,... The 88 administrators receive an estimated $7.3 million in total compensation, which includes $5.38 million in salaries and an estimated $1.89 million in fringe benefits. “To put that administrative expense into perspective, about 750 in-state students could get a full scholarship for tuition and fees if those dollars were directed to student financial aid. Stated differently, it takes the entire tuition dollars from 750 in-state students to pay for those 88 diversicrats,” economics Professor Mark ....

    The pro-life group Created Equal is launching a new series of videos Wednesday exposing the grisly reality of abortion from a unique perspective: firsthand accounts from the truck drivers responsible for picking up babies’ remains from abortion facilities. The first of three upcoming videos “exposing the dirty deeds of the abortion industry” presents audio from a former Stericycle driver who took fetal remains from an unspecified abortion center “at least twice a week” from October 2016 to June 2017. Stericycle is a medical waste disposal company that helped dispose of fetal remains for Planned Parenthood, and claimed in 2017 to...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown said Friday he will oppose the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, making his announcement just days after meeting with the federal appeals court judge. Although Brown’s decision was expected, he took more time in announcing his opposition to Kavanaugh than last year when he said he would vote against Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch just hours after President Donald Trump nominated him to the high court. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, is seeking his third term in the U.S. Senate. His November opponent is Rep. Jim Renacci, R-Wadsworth, who left the governor’s race to run for the...

    (CNN)When Sen. John McCain's family announced Friday that he was ending medical treatment for aggressive brain cancer, the news shook Capitol Hill and prompted support from his Republican and Democratic colleagues alike. But one prominent voice was missing: President Donald Trump's. The White House press office did not react to the news, and when Trump traveled to Ohio in the evening he did not mention the ailing senator in a nearly hour-long speech to Ohio Republicans, which ran a gamut of topics from the death of Mollie Tibbetts to NFL protests to Kanye West.

    President Trump went after Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray at a dinner for the state’s Republican Party on Friday evening, linking him to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Trump's comments came while he backed Republican Mike DeWine, a former U.S. senator and currently Ohio’s attorney general, who is running against Cordray in a race that the nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates as a “toss up.” “So Mike [DeWine]’s running against a far-left candidate, and you know he was groomed by Pocahontas. The legendary Pocahontas…He was groomed by Elizabeth Warren. His name is Cordray, and he’s trouble,” Trump said in Columbus,...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — President Trump said Friday night that Republicans will prevail in the midterm elections because Democrats “are not in a position to govern” with lax immigration policies that he said led to the death of Iowa teenager Mollie Tibbetts and others. Speaking to the Ohio state Republican Party’s annual dinner, Mr. Trump predicted, “This November we are going to win really big.” “Today’s Democrats are not just extreme, they are really not in a position to govern,” he said. “They are just not in a position to govern when you look at what they are for — open...

    President Trump has a lot on the line in this fall’s midterm elections. So, he’s decided to turn for help to the man he trusts the most — himself. In the remaining 75 days until ballots are counted, Trump will invest at least 40 of them in campaigning for Republicans in both House and Senate races. He will spend additional time on fundraising for candidates and the party .And you may have noticed, this president is quite comfortable with spur-of-the-moment decisions. So, it’s likely he will add even more campaign days along the way as races and political needs develop....

    WASHINGTON — Republican Troy Balderson further expanded his slim lead after all votes were counted in Delaware and Muskingum counties, and Democrat Danny O’Connor is not close enough yet to force a recount in the hotly contested Aug. 7 special election to finish out the term of Rep. Pat Tiberi. Balderson, a Zanesville Republican who serves in the state Senate, held a narrow lead over the Franklin County recorder on election night, but the seven counties in the 12th Congressional District were still counting provisional and absentee ballots early this week. Two, Delaware and Muskingum, now have certified their final...

    The ranks of forgotten Republicans are growing. Some were forced out, such as Tim Pawlenty, a former two-term Minnesota governor who lost this week's bid for a political comeback. Some, such as the retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker, chose to leave on their own. Others still serve, but with a muted voice. Whether members of Congress, governors or state party leaders, they are struggling to fit into President Donald Trump's Republican Party. The expanding list of marginalized GOP leaders underscores how thoroughly Mr. Trump has dominated — and changed — the Republican Party in the nearly two years since he...
