    Pro-amnesty GOP Senators are working hand-in-glove with Democrats to block a government budget until President Donald Trump agrees to break his campaign promise and his presidency by amnestying millions of wage-lowering illegal immigrants. The hostage-taking is being fronted by a group of GOP legislators, led by Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who announced Wednesday they would not allow 2018 funding for the Pentagon until Trump approves an amnesty, saying:

    Trump said, “I tell my people, I say right now it’s going to be very hard. And in my opinion, in order to make a fair deal with NAFTA, you have to terminate the deal and you have see where you’re going to come, and we’ll come out. But I think you have to give them — to make a fair deal and a great deal — and you see what’s going on, we’re being very tough and we’re being very fair. But we have to get back a lot. What’s happened to this country with NAFTA is unbelievable, the...

    In an email to supporters Thursday morning, former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich said he planned to announce his candidacy for Ohio governor on Wednesday. In the email, Kucinich said he plans to unveil his candidacy at the Middleburg Heights Community Center. Andy Juniewicz, a spokesman for Kucinich, said the email was accurate. The news of Kucinich's impending entry comes days after he designated a treasurer for his campaign. He becomes the sixth Democrat to enter the race. Richard Cordray, former director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and former U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton announced Wednesday they would join forces on...

    Donald Trump wants more companies — foreign and domestic — to produce goods in the United States. We spoke to German companies already in the US about whether they’ll take the bait. Jim Sheak remembers the good old days when Akron, Ohio, was a major manufacturing hub. The tire company Goodyear was founded here back in 1898, giving it the nickname Rubber City. Then, one by one in the past three decades, Goodyear and companies like it reduced their presence or pulled out entirely. Akron, like many Rust Belt cities, was left with empty factories and a shrinking population. Ironically,...

    Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury has been questioned for its truthfulness, but as critics read through the salacious material in a supposed exposé tell-all on President Donald J. Trump's administration, it is apparent that Wolff gets basic facts wrong and has other editing errors.One such example is his claim that Donald Trump did not know who Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) was in 2015. But, as pointed out by Buzzfeed’s Henry Gomez, the author also gets the year that Boehner resigned incorrect as well. So, not only does Trump not knowing Boehner ring false, Wolff also writes...

    The GOP’s effort to gain some breathing room with its Senate majority took a hit Friday, as U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel dropped out of the Ohio race due to his wife’s health, according to USA Today. Mandel was considered the frontrunner to challenge Democratic incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown. Why is he dropping out? Mandel issued a press release explaining his decision. Here is an excerpt: “We recently learned that my wife has a health issue that will require my time, attention and presence. In other words, I need to be there. Understanding and dealing with this health issue is...

    Republican Josh Mandel has ended his bid for U.S. Senate in Ohio, citing health issues with his wife. The PPD Big Data Poll, also known as the PPD Buckeye State Battleground Poll, gave Mr. Mandel a solid edge against incumbent Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown. In July, Mr. Mandel expanded his lead over Sen. Brown. In May, the state treasurer led 49% to 44%, but that 5-point advantage widened to 8 points, 50% to 42%. In 2016, President Donald J. Trump easily defeated Hillary Clinton in Ohio, 52.1% to 43.5%. Republican Sen. Rob Portman crushed Clinton ally Ted Strickland, 58.3% to...

    TOLEDO, Ohio (WKBN/AP) - A dog has been found frozen solid on an Ohio home’s porch as a bitter cold snap grips much of the United States. Toledo humane society cruelty investigator Megan Brown tells The Blade newspaper she doesn’t know how long the dog was outside Thursday when Toledo’s high temperature was expected to be in the teens (minus 11 to minus 7 degrees Celsius). A second dog was recovered shivering inside the home. The dogs’ owner says utilities had been shut off but he had been providing for the dogs while living elsewhere. He says he doesn’t know...

    (The clerk and three customers reportedly took cover when Derringer came in waving the “gun” then soon chased him from the store.) An Ohio man by the name of Derringer cobbled together a “gun” made from household items and furniture legs in an attempt to knock over a Circle K on Christmas. Police in Akron took Jeffrey Derringer, 48, into custody on Monday after customers and staff at the convenience store chased the man into an empty parking lot and detained him, the Akron Beacon-Journal reported. The gun-like piece of industrial art that Derringer used in his failed stick-up...

    Attorney General Jeff Landry is urging a federal appeals court to reverse an order that is preventing the implementation of President Donald Trump's executive order regulating so-called "sanctuary cities," arguing that such immigrant-friendly jurisdictions "undermine the rule of law and deprive law enforcement of the tools necessary to enforce the law effectively." "We have seen too many crimes occur against our own State’s citizens due to sanctuary city policies; which is why I have been actively fighting back against these policies since taking office," Landry, a Republican, said in a news release announcing that he had joined 10 other attorneys...
  • 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, there’s growing talk by politicians and TV pundits that we are on the brink of war. In truth, we shouldn’t 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...

    War with North Korea can be avoided if the Trump administration uses sanctions modeled after President Barack Obama's much-excoriated Iran deal and if everyone just avoids "irresponsible" war predictions that risk "millions of lives," Ohio's Republican Governor John Kasich wrote on Monday. Kasich—who battled Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination last year—outlined a plan for stronger U.S. sanctions against North Korea in an opinion column in The Washington Post published Monday evening. He slammed Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina and other politicians for "predicting odds on the probability of war" against North Korea when there is still...
