    King, who has been active in Cuyahoga County Republican politics since 2001, explained that the establishment Republicans are trying to infiltrate the local county party in an effort to help Dolan in the upcoming 2024 Senate race’s Republican primary after his failed attempt in 2022 when he came in third behind now-Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) in the GOP primary. “The activists and the conservatives, you know, we’ve been fighting for a long time,” King acknowledged. “We just stopped a lobbyist from taking over the Ohio Republican Party. There’s a huge fight between the lobbyists and the conservatives in the Ohio...

    Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that there was no “law that can stop that evil” when asked about the death of Tyre Nichols. Host Chuck Todd asked, “Let me start with what we saw. Senator Tim Scott said, ‘We’ve been here too many times before. We cannot continue down this path. America cannot stand silent. Let it serve as a call to action for every lawmaker in our nation at every level.’ What action would you like to see, Congressman?”

    Text for video from this link: Detained, Arrested and Beaten Over Cheeseburger Dispute Posted on January 22, 2023 It’s happened yet again – this time in Ohio – where police arrive to a trespassing complaint at a business (this time at a McDonald’s) and instead of allowing the person to leave the business, they instead detain and forcibly ID the individual. Do police officers have the right to detain someone under these circumstances? More importantly, do they have NEED to do so? From the Dayton Daily News: An incident that led to an officer hitting a woman multiple times...

    Freshman Republican Sen. JD Vance is calling on the White House to release a complete audit report detailing the exact amount of financial support the United States has provided to Ukraine since February 2022 and how it has been spent as Congress weighs additional funding. "Whether you support Ukrainian funding or not, the fundamental question is, we deserve, and the American people deserve to know how their money is being spent, especially when we're talking about $120 billion dollars of it," Vance said Wednesday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." Earlier this week, Vance, R-Ohio, drafted a letter addressed to the White...

    Disturbing footage posted online documents the moment an Ohio cop punches a woman multiple times in her face as she is being detained. The video, which was originally posted Tuesday night by Dayton 24/7 Now, shows a Butler Township police officer pummeling Latinka Hancock on January 16 and apparently putting her in a chokehold. Hancock was reportedly sent to the hospital in the aftermath, where she was diagnosed with a head injury. The incident apparently came after Hancock got into a heated argument with McDonald's employees because she ordered a Big Mac with extra cheese but was handed a regular...

  • Meet the Green Energy Group Behind the Study That's Driving Calls To Ban Gas Stoves

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | January 16, 2023 | Collin Anderson and Joseph Simonson
    The green energy group behind a study cited in Consumer Product Safety commissioner Richard Trumka Jr.'s call to ban gas stoves has partnered with the Chinese government to implement an "economy-wide transformation" away from oil and gas. Colorado-based nonprofit Rocky Mountain Institute, which published the December study that attributes 13 percent of U.S. childhood asthma cases to gas-stove use, is hardly staffed by an objective group of scientists. The organization is demanding "systemic change and economy-wide transformation" to address a climate crisis it says we must go to great lengths to avoid. In 2013, for example, the Rocky Mountain Institute...

    Ohio GOP Gov. Mike DeWine signed legislation on Friday that aims to enhance the integrity of state elections by strengthening existing voter ID requirements. Passed by the Republican-controlled House and Senate last month, the bill (HB 458) provides specifications about what constitutes an acceptable form of identification voters must show when casting their ballot in person. Under the new law, Ohioans will be required to provide an unexpired “Ohio driver’s license, state identification card, or interim identification form issued by the registrar of motor vehicles or a deputy registrar,” a U.S. military ID card, or a U.S. passport or passport...

    The natural gas industry in Ohio has gained a victory of sorts after Gov. Mike DeWine signed legislation that allows for a broader expansion of drilling for oil and gas in state parks. The bill, which has been very controversial, also defines natural gas as a source of “green energy.” A state law from 2011 provided state agencies with authority to lease out state lands for oil and gas exploration and production projects if they choose to. The legislation, House Bill 507, modifies this language. Instead of saying state agencies “may” lease out state lands for oil and gas exploration,...

    Reps. Matt Gaetz and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz told Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about a possible Democrat-led bail-out during Tuesday’s House vote, according to The Intercept. Inaudible footage showed Gaetz and Ocasio-Cortez speaking to each other during the vote for the new House speaker. Gaetz, an opponent of Speaker-designate McCarthy, told Ocasio-Cortez that McCarthy believed Democrats would bail him out, allowing him to win the speakership, The Intercept reported. Ocasio-Cortez assured Gaetz her party would not vote in favor of McCarthy, and that she’d spoken to other Democrats who backed her answer, according to The...

    Two Indianapolis police officers had spent the day searching in vain for a missing baby in a stolen vehicle when they stopped to eat and gather their wits. A woman suspected of stealing the 2010 black Honda Accord had been taken into custody earlier that day, on December 22, but the vehicle was still missing. More urgently, baby Kason Thomass, who was in the car with his twin Kyair Thomass when it was stolen three days earlier in Columbus, Ohio, had yet to be found. “It was time for us to decompress because we were disappointed that we could not...

  • Biden releasing nearly $36 billion to aid pensions of union workers

    President Joe Biden on Thursday is announcing the infusion of nearly $36 billion to shore up a financially troubled union pension plan, preventing severe cuts to the retirement incomes of more than 350,000 Teamster workers and retirees across the United States. The money for the Central States Pension Fund is the largest amount of federal aid provided for a pension plan, the Biden administration said, and comes from the American Rescue Plan, a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package that he signed into law in 2021. Many union retirement plans have been under financial pressure because of underfunding and other issues....
