    CLEVELAND — A new School of One, run by the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, is focused on creating a space for students who identify as LGBTQ+. During the pandemic, classes are online, but once hybrid learning is available, leaders at the school hope to have some students at the LGBT Community Center on Detroit. CMSD says it is the first of its kind in the country. "It blows my mind. I didn't honestly think it was going to be this easy," said DaJon Battle, a program administrator with the district. Battle, who identifies as Queer, said representation in schools is...

Liz Cheney (R-WY) as the House Republican Conference chair. “We ought to have a second vote,” Jordan said. Jordan joins a rising movement of Republicans calling to oust Cheney as the third-ranking Republican in the House for calling for President Donald Trump to be impeached.

    Today, President Donald J. Trump will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Jim Jordan. This prestigious award is the Nation’s highest civilian honor, which is awarded by the President to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors. In 1994, Jordan was elected to the Ohio State House of Representatives and 8 years later to the State Senate. For the past 14 years, he has served the people of Ohio’s 4th district. In 2007, Jordan was appointed...

    President Trump on Monday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Rep. Jim Jordan, the Republican from Ohio who has served as a high-profile congressional defender of the Trump throughout his presidency. A statement from the White House credited Jordan with his efforts to fight back against the Democratic-led impeachment effort against President Trump last year that ended without a conviction in the Senate. "At the beginning of last year, Jordan was named ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee and led the effort to confront the impeachment witch hunt," the White House said. "He is an inspiration to freedom-loving...

    President Trump's call for unity after the failed coup hasn't found its way to the suburbs just yet ... this Ohio homeowner missed the memo, and he's got a new way to irk neighbors. Check out these yard signs sitting outside a home in a Cleveland suburb ... we're told the signage went up Thursday in response to the deadly siege on the Capitol. The brainchild behind the signs is taking applications for new friends, with some very specific criteria ... and he could use spelling lessons after trying to call out what he sees as hypocrisy from folks who...

  • Ryan Day Says Buckeyes Will Have “Plenty Of Players” On Monday (Alabama, Ohio State Football Championship Game)

    Happy Friday, everyone. The only problem with being in the national championship is having to wait through the weekend for a Monday night game. Alas, we push through. It sounds like the game will go on, and that’s a good thing. Ohio State coach Ryan Day said Thursday that his team is on track to play in the College Football Playoff National Championship against No. 1 Alabama on Monday, despite ongoing coronavirus issues.In his first comments since reports earlier in the week that there were discussions about possibly delaying the game, Day said the Buckeyes would have “plenty of players”...

    Staunch Trump ally, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), put his name on the list of objectors to the electors from 6 contested states early in the process. Today, Jordan stood in front of fellow members of Congress and asked, “For nine weeks, Democrats have been afraid to have a real debate on election integrity. Why?” Jordan also reminded them that “60 million Americans think the [November] election was stolen.” He continued, “Four years and forty million dollars on the Russian hoax, but we can’t look into an election that 60 million Americans think was stolen!?” Jordan explained that they’ve asked multiple...

    I got this response from Rob Portman. I had e mailed him to askhim to support the President: Dear xxxxx (my name) Thank you for contacting me regarding the 2020 Presidential Election. It is good to hear from you and I appreciate the opportunity to engage with you. The U.S. presidential election was held on November 3, 2020. With historic turnout across the board, it is clear that the American people were fully engaged in this election.

    Ohio State football proved it belonged, and will now attempt to show it stands alone. The Buckeyes entered Friday’s Sugar Bowl against Clemson in search of a championship identity it had not yet seen on the field in 2020. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney questioned whether Ohio State should be allowed in the College Football Playoff after playing only six games. What had the obviously talented Buckeyes actually shown? Ohio State, and the rest of college football, now have evidence of that elusive, theoretical peak performance. Justin Fields played with explosive efficiency that, with a few notable exceptions, has been the...

    A wild viral video shows a white man being smacked in the face with a can of Twisted Tea at an Ohio gas station after he repeatedly calls a black customer the n-word. The clip begins with the belligerent customer spewing profanity at the other man behind him in line, threatening to perform a sexual act on his mother and hurling the racist slur seven times. After 45 seconds of standing his ground, the man being berated smacks the loudmouth in the face with the large can of the alcoholic iced tea that he’s holding. The fight continues on the...
  • The Cargill salt mine: an other world under Lake Erie

    Down, down, down. In three minutes, the skip drops nearly 1,700 feet below Cleveland. Then the giant metal door swings open, and you’re deposited in an other-world, with walls, ceiling and floor made of salt. Dirty brown salt at the Cargill mine’s entrance, where the rock has absorbed diesel fumes and dust for more than 60 years. Pristine white, with glimmering flecks, at the mine’s far reaches, 3 miles north, under Lake Erie. “I look out at the water, and it’s like, man, we’re under that!” said Cargill employee Cachet Hilton, 45. Every day, the 5-mile wide mine gets a...

    Elizabeth Banks, an actress heavily invested in the pro-abortion movement, criticized an Ohio self defense bill Friday because it could endanger innocent children. The Daily Wire reports Banks (“Hunger Games,” “Pitch Perfect”) said “Stand Your Ground” laws do not help anybody and put children and pets at risk. “Stand Your Ground is BS,” she wrote on Twitter, reacting to an Ohio bill that would allow people to shoot in self-defense even if they do not attempt to retreat first. Banks shared a personal experience to warn people about how dangerous such legislation could be. As a child, she said she...

  • Ohio House passes ‘stand your ground’ bill after emotional debate

    12/18/2020 2:43:05 PM PST · by CheshireTheCat · 23 replies ^ | December 17, 2020 | Jeremy Pelzer
    The Ohio House passed a controversial “stand your ground” measure on Thursday that would eliminate any “duty to retreat” before using force in self-defense. Senate Bill 175, which now must clear another Senate vote before heading to Gov. Mike DeWine, is the latest attempt by legislative Republicans to make Ohio the 36th state to no longer require a duty to retreat before using force. House Republicans added the “stand your ground” language via a last-minute floor amendment to SB 175, which grants civil immunity to churches and other nonprofits where shootings occur. Under existing Ohio law, people are justified in...
