    I hate (and I do mean HATE) the trend of journalists, analysts, and commentators rushing to the closest television camera or website to make their Nostradamus-like forecast of what is going to happen on Election Day. When did the craft of journalism include the fine art of prognostication? (I mean, other than suggesting whether or not you should take the three points on the Lions at home this weekend... spoiler alert: Yes, you should.) I personally detest every smart guy and gal telling you what's about to happen on Election Day rather than analyzing what is actually happening right now and...

    One Cincinnati family is keeping a close count of the political signs dotting the front yards of their suburban neighborhood. The signs supporting President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden are of special interest to the father and son, who tally up the number of signs for each candidate while driving around their neighborhood and report the numbers to the mother. With one week remaining until Election Day, suburban voters—particularly suburban women—are of special interest to both campaigns and could be a deciding factor in the presidential election. Trump has made countless pleas to suburban women this election...
  • Smashing “Whiteness” in the Classroom. Ohio’s education department offered—and withdrew, at least for now—a startling collection of “antiracist” teaching supplements.

    Ohio may be a red state with a Republican governor and state legislature, but the Ohio Department of Education kicked off this school year by promoting far-left, racialist, anti-police propaganda in the form of its recommended “Anti-Racist Allyship Starter Pack,” a resource for social studies teachers. The starter pack contains about 200 links to “antiracist” op-eds, essays, and blog posts, which exemplify what President Trump meant when he spoke of a “left-wing cultural revolution” in our schools “designed to overthrow the American revolution” in favor of “far-left fascism.” The ODE recommended an article on “The Souls of White Folk.” The...

'Amy Coney Barrett, confirmed. Happy Birthday, @HillaryClinton!' the tweet read. The message was posted on the House Judiciary GOP Twitter account and may have been written by its Ranking Member, Congressman Jim Jordan.

    A passage in The Washington Post shows that media are determined to call the emails on Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop Russian disinformation – even though they know that they’re not – Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said Monday. Jordan, the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted: “The media knows the Hunter Biden emails are real. “They know it’s not Russian disinformation. “But they continue to cover up the scandal” As evidence, Rep. Jordan posted a quote from a “Perspectives” piece by Author Thomas Rid in the October 25, 2020 edition of The Washington Post: “We must treat the Hunter...

    Federal, state, and local officials launched what they say is the largest anti-human-trafficking operation in state history last week, rescuing 154 victims and arresting 179 men for illegally soliciting sex and other crimes. During Operation Autumn Hope, which involved more than 50 law enforcement agencies and social-service organizations, state and local authorities cracked down on adult sex trafficking in Cuyahoga, Franklin, and Lucas counties, as well as people soliciting sex with children in Franklin and Mahoning counties. The U.S. Marshals Service, meanwhile, focused on saving child sex victims in Southern Ohio. During the operation, 109 human-trafficking survivors – all women...

    Data Analyst Professor Bela Stantic says based on rigorous data analysis of millions of social media posts, he believes US President Donald Trump will win the US election, despite national polls suggesting Joe Biden will become president. "On September 18, I collected over four million tweets with 20 million likes and I did analysis and based on that analysis I concluded Trump is ahead and he will win with 270-280 seats. "Trump has 161 seats which are very firm and 19 which is sure, which brings him to 180. He, according to my analysis - which was on September 20...

    In one of the rare instances where the media has bothered to ask Joe Biden about anything of substance, he was forced to give an answer during the last presidential debate about whether or not he was planning on banning fracking. He flip-flopped on that issue yet again, saying that he would not be banning fracking, likely because he’s aware that the polls in Pennsylvania are hanging by a thread at the moment. But as C. Boyden Gray points out this week at Real Clear Politics, Joe Biden’s answer wasn’t just at odds with previous statements by both he...

    Follow the science. Governor Cuomo, the media, and his supporters have claimed that his false accusation that the segregation of particular areas as hot zones, some appearing to target Orthodox Jews, was based on the work of health experts and statistics. But discovery is a wonderful thing. Even when judges refuse to do the right thing, the process provides invaluable insights into a deeply corrupt system. The Brooklyn Catholic Diocese sued Cuomo and produced some incredible admissions, via OJPAC. "NYGovCuomo’s Howard Zucker admits in a brief in the Brooklyn Catholic Diocese case that “there is no specific percentage threshold to...

    Accused conspirators charged in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also discussed "taking" Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, an FBI agent testified at a court hearing Tuesday. During the hearing in Grand Rapids, Mich., to discuss the charges filed last week against members of a self-proclaimed militia accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic governor, FBI Special Agent Richard Trask revealed that months ago some of the suspects met in Dublin, Ohio, where Northam, also a Democrat, was discussed as a potential target.
  • Joe Biden Slurs His Way Through Opening Remarks: 'Because Uh, by Cause It's Ellen General Motors'

    If we didn’t know better, we’d think the Democratic presidential nominee was drunk on Monday when he delivered his opening remarks to a small group of supporters in Ohio. Thanks to a Marie Claire magazine article on the subject published earlier this year, we know Biden isn’t a drinker. Still, the 77-year-old slurred his speech heavily as he navigated his opening comments while addressing a small crowd of supporters in Toledo at a drive-in rally. Democrats for years have knocked President Donald Trump when comparing him to former presidents, and specifically when comparing his remarks to those of 20th-century icons,...

    Trump mocked his rival Joe Biden for stating he was 'running for Senate' - using the momentary lapse as more evidence of his claim that Biden is unfit for office. On Monday in Toledo, Ohio Biden addressed United Auto Workers who represent a local GM power train plant. The former VP spoke in a parking lot with 30 American-made cars and trucks arrayed nearby. 'You know, we have to come together. That's why I'm running. I'm running as a proud Democrat for the Senate, when I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president, and I'm running as a proud...

    Kevin McCullough is predicting 333 electoral votes for Donald Trump and 208 for Joe Biden. Biden wins Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, Illinois. He wins Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, and — not, New Hampshire. Not New Hampshire. Vermont. And everything else on this map is red. Pennsylvania is red. Ohio is red. Florida is red. Arizona’s red. Texas is red. Nevada is red. Arizona is red. Now, he hasn’t been wrong since 2006. And, by the way, have you heard people saying, “Man, this year feels a lot like 2016”? Meaning,...

Officials promised to have new ballots mailed within three days to the 49,669 voters who received the wrong ones. "We want to make it clear that every voter who received an inaccurate ballot will receive a corrected ballot," the board said in a news release, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

    … Ohio is one of the key swing states in the US that regularly see close contests between the Republican and the Democratic candidate for president. In 2016, Trump won Ohio. Recent polls show the incumbent and Biden neck and neck. Winning swing states like Ohio is the only way to win the election — and the Buckeye state has proven to be a good predictor for who will succeed at that. Since 1944, Ohioans have only once sided with the losing candidate in a presidential race, when they opted for Richard Nixon over John F. Kennedy in 1960. […]...
