    Since the start of the Syria's civil war in the spring of 2011, the U.S. has admitted 2,311 Syrian refugees and resettled them in 36 different states. According to data from the State Department's Refugee Processing Center the top three destinations for Syrian refugees since the beginning of the conflict are California, Texas, and Michigan. From March 15, 2011 through December 1, 2015, California received the most (261) Syrian refugees, Texas received the second most with 242, and Michigan has received the third most with 217.

    The Amish are online, onscreen, and multiplying fast. In their battle with modernity, it’s tough to say who’s winning I’ve probably visited more Amish settlements than anyone. Who would venture out to the most remote corners of Montana, Maine and South Texas if they didn’t happen to be a student of Amish culture? Perhaps a peddler of pots and pans; many Amish cooks, I have noticed, gradually gave up their cast iron for stainless steel in the past 50 years... In my 25 years exploring Amish communities, I’ve witnessed changes that would be unnoticeable to the average outsider... To the...
  • Plan A for GOP donors: Wait for Trump to fall. (There is no Plan B.)

    As the combative mogul enters his fifth month at the top of the GOP field, attempts to derail him remain anemic, underfunded and unfocused — and they are likely to stay that way until the Iowa caucuses in less than 10 weeks. Most of the party’s financiers and top strategists are sitting on the sidelines. Many are reluctant to spend money against Trump after watching others fumble as they tried to handle his counterpunches. Others, citing past elections, remain confident that the race will eventually pivot away from him early next year. -- “I’m not sure someone wouldn’t do better...

    Yeesh. John Kasich's campaign takes its biggest shot at Donald Trump, featuring a former U.S. prisoner of war, Ret. Col. Thomas Moe, adapting a famous quote about the Nazis, and applying it to Trump. *snip* See what you've done, Governor Kasich? Now you've got me, Trump hater extraordinaire, forced to defend Trump from charges of crypto-Nazism. We still don't know whether Donald Trump really wants Muslims to register with the government. He's never directly proposed it. He's given a half-distracted, loosely-worded affirmative answer to a reporter when it was first brought up by the reporter. Every time he's asked since,...

She assumed the meeting would last 10 minutes. Instead, she said, she was there for about an hour as three deans at the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law critiqued her on what they saw as problems with her Oct. 23 column in The Washington Times, “The number one killer of black Americans.”

    For all of the candidates, all of the debates and all of the unpredictability, the race for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 has taken a clear shape over the past month or so. There is a four-candidate top tier that has separated itself from the rest of the pack. There is then a trio of “if/then” candidates who would need a major mistake or collapse from one of the top four to have a realistic chance at winning. Everyone else running has a puncher’s chance — at best — at being relevant in the nomination fight. Below are my...

Strategists with the pro-Kasich group, called New Day for America, say the budget for the anti-Trump campaign is likely to grow. The offensive comes as some in the GOP are beginning to plot how to...

    In Tuesday’s elections, voters rejected recreational marijuana, transgender rights, and illegal-immigrant sanctuaries; they reacted equivocally to gun-control arguments; and they handed a surprise victory to a Republican gubernatorial candidate who emphasized his opposition to gay marriage. Democrats have become increasingly assertive in taking liberal social positions in recent years, believing that they enjoy majority support and even seeking to turn abortion and gay rights into electoral wedges against Republicans. But Tuesday’s results—and the broader trend of recent elections that have been generally disastrous for Democrats not named Barack Obama—call that view into question. Indeed, they suggest that the left has...

They also will decide whether commercial monopolies should be denied a place in the state constitution. And should they pass both issues on the November ballot, one will nullify the other. That's the story on Issue 2, which deals with commercial monopolies, among other things, and Issue 3, the controversial initiative that would legalize marijuana. If Issue 2 passes, the marijuana issue cannot be implemented even if it, too, receives a mandate. Upon...

    A two-year suspension of the government wind energy mandates that were imposed on Ohio utilities will become permanent if the September recommendation of a bicameral legislative panel there is followed. The primary reason cited for the decision was uncertainty over President Obama’s Clean Power Plan. The Ohio Energy Mandates Study Committee, comprised of both Senate and House members, was created in 2014 by the law that put the temporary suspension in place. The freeze applies to what are called utility “renewable portfolio standards,” a euphemism that for all practical purposes means wind turbines in this part of the country. The...

    Unlike almost all conservative commentators and a fair number of liberal ones, Ohio Governor John Kasich was quite satisfied wit the job done last night by the CNBC debate moderators. Brittany M. Hughes of the Media Research Center: The presidential hopeful told MRCTV he “thought they did a good job,” saying he was “very appreciative of how they did their job.” "I had time" to speak and discuss the issues - and, this time, the debate "wasn't a circus," Kasich said.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump lashed back at Gov. John Kasich of Ohio by saying fracking is the only thing that saved his state's economy. "He got lucky with fracking," said Trump, responding to Kasich's tirade of criticisms of his rivals' tax plans, including Trump's at Wednesday night's CNBC debate. Trump fired back at Kasich's economic record with fracking as the "only reason Ohio is doing well." Kasich responded that Ohio has a growing energy sector, but "we are diversified." "We came back from the dead" but energy is just one item, he said. "We are diversified." Ohio sits on...

    Trump - On his game. Smacked John Kasich down quickly at the beginning. His closing nailed the media to the wall. Excellent Carson - What can I say? He was off his game. He was really flat tonight. Kept wringing his hands and searching for words. Cruz - Really sharp. Took it to the media. Took it to Congress. Took it to the Washington Cartel. Paul - I'll take heat, but Paul was excellent tonight. Spoke the truth about budget, entitlements, medicare, social security. He's not a warm person. I think he's a Vulcan. Christie - Really on his game,...

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump claimed credit Sunday for Ford Motor Company's plans to move a production plant from Mexico to Ohio. Trump has been calling out Ford during his campaign, saying the automaker plans to move jobs from Michigan to Mexico, but Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who also is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, says the move from Mexico to Ohio had nothing to Trump's demands. "The truth is that Ford began moving jobs back to Ohio four years ago under the leadership of Governor John Kasich," the governor's campaign said in a statement to the press on Sunday...

    The headlines recently have been full of suggestions that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is solidifying his lead while the other real outsider in the race, Ben Carson, is firmly in second place and that the political classs favorites, including Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio, cant gain traction. I dont buy it. Republicans should not overcommit to the notion that Trump, much less Carson, are serious candidates for the Republican nomination for 2016. Ill admit to being a little perplexed by the polls right now. When Trump entered the race, I said he would max out somewhere...

    Longtime political strategist Karl Rove is warning Republicans not to nominate a presidential candidate that reflects the same "populist anger" that gave birth to the rise of Donald Trump. In his latest op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Rove explained the GOP will have two choices when delegates gather in Cleveland, Ohio, next July to determine which remaining Republican hopeful they wish to see challenge Democrats in the general election. "Will the party choose a nominee with a conservative agenda or one reflecting populist anger?" Rove wrote. "The two are hardly the same," he noted. "Conservative principles provide a winning...
