    Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday that Ohio Gov. John Kasich should run for President again in 2020, challenging incumbent President Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary. Schwarzenegger made the endorsement in an interview with the Los Angeles Times: “He should run in 2020, yes,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview with The Times when asked whether Kasich, whom he supported over Trump in the 2016 presidential race, should launch another presidential campaign. “Kasich is an extraordinary guy. He’s a man of substance. He’s worked in Washington, he’s worked in local government, he’s worked in statewide government. He has...

    Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told CNN's Michael Smerconish that he believes Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich could be "a great alternative" to President Donald Trump if the President fails to deliver on his promises. "People are going to judge the President before they go to the polls by his performance," Schwarzenegger, who is a Republican, said in an interview. "If Trump does a great job, then there's no reason to replace him. But what I'm saying is that John Kasich is a great alternative should he (Trump) not perform, because we don't know yet. We are only one year...
  • Schwarzenegger used private jet for daily commutes to California’s governor’s mansion

    Former GOP California governor and global warming activist Arnold Schwarzenegger came under fire for his near-daily private jet commute from his Brentwood home to the governor’s mansion in Sacramento. “The governor’s Gulf-stream jet does nearly as much damage to the environment in one hour as a small car does in a year,” the Los Angeles Times reported in 2008. But not to worry, because “Schwarzenegger is well aware of this and makes amends by purchasing pollution credits for the carbon dioxide his jet releases.”

    TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar has said he is concerned Irish whiskey could be targeted as part of the escalating trade war between the US and the EU. Speaking on the first day of his week-long visit to the US, Mr Varadkar said when he hears the EU threaten to put import tariffs on US bourbon, it concerns him that Irish whiskey could also be hit with tariffs. “When I hear bourbon whiskey I think the next response could be tariffs against Irish whiskey,” he said. Speaking at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, Mr Varadkar warned that a cross-Atlantic...

    Government watchdog group Common Cause has rescinded an award scheduled to be presented tonight to Arnold Schwarzenegger following an outcry over past sexual harassment allegations made against him. The group was scheduled to honor the former California governor with the “We the People Award” for his work on gerrymandering reform at the awards dinner at LA’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. In a statement, the organization said “former Governor Schwarzenegger does not want to be a distraction to the ongoing important democracy work of Common Cause,” adding he would not be attending tonight’s event and the organization would not be giving him...

    Once there was a larger than life Republican celebrity with a passion for winning who beat the Democrat establishment, but then let himself be steered away from the conservatism that got him into office and became a leathery, near-forgotten joke. President Trump, never, ever go Full Arnold. He is so close to success – it’s in his grasp – and yet the President is in danger of allowing both well-meaning friends and false ones to drag him off target by embracing the failed liberal nonsense that created the mess that led to his election. Trump’s winning now, which is...

    Although there is a sense that Donald Trump's unusual and outlandish run for the presidency is the first ever of its kind, this is not entirely true. Californians, such as myself, remember how Arnold Schwarzenegger captured the governorship of California in 2003, in a campaign remarkably similar to Trump's. Obviously, governor of California is not the same as president of the United States, but it is the chief executive of the nation's most populous state. That year, California's incumbent Gov. Gray Davis, a Democrat, was pulled from office in a recall election. It was a time of disillusionment and cynicism...

    “I think that gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman.” Yes, back in 2003, actor turned GOP politician Arnold Schwarzenegger made the aforementioned verbal blunder. He spoke a lot more eloquently on the issue on Friday in Los Angeles. “I’m very happy that they made the right decision because we in California of course are always a step ahead,” he said, giving a self-congratulatory shout-out to the 2008 legalization of same-sex marriage the state passed during his second term in office. “We made that decision already, a long time ago. Our Supreme Court of...

The “Terminator” star and former California governor blasted the state’s recently passed Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Friday, declaring,”As a Republican, I’m furious.” In a no-holds-barred op-ed for the Washington Post, Schwarzenegger — who wrote that he “became a proud Republican before I even understood English” — goes against the beliefs that drew him to the party.

    They may be good at making movies, but Hollywood celebrities’ lifestyles are far from an environmentalist’s dream. Their globetrotting, multiple mansion owning ways are inconsistent with the environmental agenda they loudly promote. Showtime’s new climate change series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” premiered April 13, 2014, slightly more than a week before Earth Day 2014. It relies on several wealthy, Hollywood celebrities to spread fear about climate change. While these actors and directors talk a lot about reducing carbon footprints and saving the world, they haven’t given up their own enormous mansions and private jets. Director James Cameron, former Governor Arnold...

His courageous life shows what’s possible when one acts on his convictions.” Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger released a statement saying, “I will never forget the time I spent with President Mandela.” The former governor recalled how “during the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics in South Africa, I had the opportunity to stand with him in his former jail cell at Robben Island to light the torch, and his legend grew...

    will always remember the day I woke to the news that more than 2,000 fires were burning in California. I thought I must not have heard correctly. Two thousand fires? How could that be? In the end, the state's brave firefighters, joined by contingents from out of state, won the battle. But not before 11 emergency declarations were issued and more than 400,000 acres burned. Countless lives and livelihoods were ruined. Today, there's a new disaster looming, and although it's not as riveting or dramatic as walls of flames and billowing black smoke, it needs our immediate attention. The draft...
