  • Kasich: We need more Republicans willing to stand up to Trump

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is saying that more members of the Republican Party need to be willing to stand up to President Trump. “It’s been pretty lonely out here," Kasich told The Guardian in an interview published on Friday, alluding to how he is one of the few members of the GOP to consistently criticize the president. “Not that I mind walking a lonely road, I’ve done it most of my career, but always would be good if you had more people who are willing to stand up and say that’s the wrong direction,” Kasich added.

And how Democrat Danny O'Connor does in the Republican-leaning district was supposed to give an indication of how his party will fare in the November midterms.</p>

    Police in Columbus, Ohio, released body-camera video showing Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star known as Stormy Daniels who claims to have had an affair with President Donald Trump, being handcuffed and arrested outside a strip club where she performed. Clifford, 39, was arrested July 11 on suspicion of sexually touching a patron while on stage at the Sirens Gentlemen's Club in Columbus, but the charges were quickly dismissed after City Attorney Zach Klein reviewed the case. Clifford and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, slammed the arrest a "politically motivated" setup. The police body-camera video released Wednesday shows officers handcuffing Clifford...

    A Democratic lawmaker posted a video of herself dancing to Drake's recently-released song "In My Feelings" on Twitter Friday, urging the song's mysterious "Keke" to vote in the upcoming November midterms. Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) posted the half-minute video Friday afternoon, writing that the Trump administration's policies had her and other Americans "in my feelings." "I don't know who Keke is but I want her to vote next November because this @WhiteHouse has me and many other Americans "in my feelings". #KekeMustVote #InMyFeelingsChallenge," Beatty wrote in the post accompanying the video, in which she steps out of a white car...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The house. Food on the table. Survival. Those are some of the ways workers and retirees who demonstrated in Ohio’s capital Thursday described the pension payments they are fighting to protect. “It’s everything, mostly, because you worked all of them years,” said Duane Ross, 61, of Cadiz, who spent 30 years in the mines. Ross was among thousands of unionized coal miners, iron workers, teamsters, bakers, tobacco workers, millers and others who descended on the Ohio Statehouse to rally ahead of a congressional field hearing in Columbus. They brandished signs saying “Save Our Pensions” and wore...

    A new abortion clinic opened next door to a children’s day care facility Monday in Columbus, Ohio, sparking outrage in the neighborhood. The new abortion business, Your Choices Healthcare on Karl Road, is operated by the same group that ran Founders Women’s Health Center, an abortion facility on Broad Street, WOSU Radio News reports. Founders closed at the end of June for unknown reasons after 45 years in business. It aborted unborn babies up to 17 weeks of pregnancy. The new abortion facility will abort unborn babies up to 10 weeks for a price of $525 or more. One of...

    Reliably red on the political map, Huntington is a West Virginia town with a 191-year-old university, a storied football team and more than 100 churches. It’s where Will Lockwood graduated from high school. It’s where he enrolled at Marshall University. It’s where he first tried OxyContin. By the time Lockwood entered Marshall as a freshman, Detroit dealers were trickling into Huntington selling OxyContin and pills with OxyContin’s active ingredient, oxycodone. Even though Lockwood could step out his front door and get the drug, Detroit street dealers weren’t the preferred supplier. Florida was. It may be 1,000 miles away, but to...

    Shortened title. Full title: Jim Jordan Goes Off! Fake News CNN Contacts Over 100 of His Former Staff and Interns Looking For Dirt Representative Jim Jordan was slandered over the past week for allegedly ignoring a now dead doctor’s advances on his wrestlers when he was an assistant coach over 20 years ago. The story appears to be another hit piece from the slanderous left and media elites. The law firm handling this case is none other than Perkins Coie; the same law firm that represented Hillary Clinton’s campaign and paid for the fake Russia dossier. Rep. Jim Jordan has...

    A former Ohio State University wrestler who came forward with allegations last week that a doctor sexually abused athletes on the team sought compensation from the school last month, according to a copy of an email obtained by The Hill. In an email sent to both OSU and the law firm conducting an independent investigation, former OSU wrestler Mike DiSabato said he had no intention of causing a “public relations nightmare” but warned that he would “pursue other avenues toward resolution” if a meeting was not set up with university representatives to discuss a potential settlement for the victims. OSU...

    Tough and honest Representative Jim Jordan from Ohio is a potential candidate for Speaker of the House and is a tenacious member of the House Freedom Caucus.  Jordan again shows that if you are an outstanding voice of the American people and you love this country and want to make it great again, then you are a target of the Democrat Party, Fake News MSM and the Democrats top legal firm, Perkins Coie.  Representative Jordan is under attack because he is on to the many crimes committed by Rod Rosenstein and others in the corrupt FBI and DOJ cabal.  He...

    When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jim Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded. (snip) -- Like many Americans, when I saw last week’s headlines about my friend, U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), I couldn’t believe them. The accusations did not describe the man of character and courage I’ve known for more than a decade. When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded. Jordan, as you may know, was a two-time NCAA Division I national...

    Rep. Jim Renacci and an affiliated group raised more than $2 million during the most recent fundraising quarter in his bid for the U.S. Senate, Renacci's campaign announced Monday. Renacci's campaign did not immediately offer a breakdown of how much of the $2 million was raised by his campaign committee, versus how much was raised by the affiliate, which faces greater restrictions on how the money can be spent. It also did not share how much money Renacci has on hand, a key political fundraising metric. However, the campaign did specify that the $2 million haul did not include any...

    Mike Davis didn't think Donald Trump could get elected. Davis is the kind of Republican who backed Ohio governor John Kasich in the 2016 primaries, the kind of Republican who subscribes to the Wall Street Journal. Davis, 64, is the former mayor of Dunwoody, Ga., a small city in the state's 6th Congressional District, one of the most highly-educated districts in the country. Ultimately Davis voted for Trump, mainly because he was worried about the tilt of the Supreme Court. With the nomination of another conservative justice expected on Monday, following the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and a...

In a phone interview on Monday, former Ohio State University head wrestling coach Russ Hellickson vehemently denied that he or Jordan had ever seen or been told that Dr. Richard Strauss was molesting or sexually assaulting OSU wrestlers during the 1980s and 90s. “I am frankly pissed off at what they are doing to Jim Jordan.

    Two former Ohio State University wrestlers are accusing Rep. Jim Jordan of ignoring sexual misconduct by a university physician more than two decades ago when he was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State. There’s no claim that Jordan engaged in such misconduct, the claim is that he knew about, but failed to take action to stop, sexual harassment by a team doctor. * * * In Jordan’s case, the two accusers are highly suspect. According to Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller, one of them, Dunyasha Yetts, served prison time for a $1.8 million fraud scheme that involved bilking...

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on Tuesday fiercely denied allegations that he failed to stop a sports physician from sexually abusing student athletes at Ohio State University when he was a wrestling coach there. Jordan told Politico in an interview that he would have intervened had he known about the doctor's alleged behavior. "It’s not true," Jordan told Politico. "I never knew about any type of abuse. If I did, I would have done something about it. And look, if there are people who are abused, then that’s terrible and we want justice to happen." Three former wrestlers at OSU told...

    Allegations that Rep. Jim Jordan failed to stop a team doctor from sexually abusing student athletes when the Ohio Republican was a college wrestling coach is complicating his possible bid for Speaker of the House. The NBC News story dropped Tuesday just as Jordan began reaching out to GOP colleagues, urging them to ditch Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and instead back him for the top job in the House GOP conference. Jordan, 54, the powerful founding chairman of the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus, has not formally announced a bid for Speaker but has said he plans to be “part of...
