    The Pentagon has identified two soldiers killed Friday in Kunduz Province in Afghanistan as a result of what it said were wounds sustained while engaged in combat. The two soldiers were identified as Spc. Joseph Collette of Lancaster, Ohio, 29, and Sgt. 1st Class Will Lindsay, 33, of Cortez, Colorado. Collette was assigned to the 242nd Ordnance Battalion, 71st Explosive Ordnance Group in Fort Carson, Colorado, and Lindsay was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) out of Fort Carson. Two US defense officials told CNN Friday that the two US service members were killed during a...

    (Reuters) - General Motors Co confirmed on Friday it will invest $300 million in a suburban Detroit assembly plant, adding 400 jobs to build a new Chevrolet electric vehicle. The largest U.S. automaker has come under heavy criticism from President Donald Trump in recent days over its decision to end production at its Lordstown, Ohio, assembly plant earlier this month. GM officials said the announcement was planned well before Trump's series of angry GM tweets that started on Saturday. Trump called GM CEO Mary Barra on Sunday to urge her to reverse the decision to end production at the Ohio...

    ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Less than a week after a series of critical tweets from the president over an Ohio plant closure, General Motors is announcing plans to add 400 jobs and build a new electric vehicle at a factory north of Detroit. The company says it will spend $300 million at its plant in Orion Township, Michigan, to manufacture a Chevrolet vehicle based on the battery-powered Bolt. GM wouldn’t say when the new workers will start or when the new vehicle will go on sale, nor would it say if the workers will be new hires or come...

  • President Trump Visits The Last Tank Plant In America, Which He Helped Save

    President Trump’s visit this week to the Army’s sole surviving tank plant in Lima, Ohio is the first such presidential visit there since George W. Bush stopped by in 2003. President Obama never visited, and the depressed level of military spending during his presidency nearly shut the place down. Wrongly assuming that Russia had ceased to be a threat to global security, the Obama administration cut the number of Army armored brigades to a record low of nine. Production of upgraded Abrams tanks at the Lima site fell to a single tank per month, and the Army seriously considered mothballing...

    There’s a reason why President Trump is becoming more popular in important Midwestern battleground states like Pennsylvania: Voters don’t want to lose the ongoing economic renaissance that is transforming their lives. According to a recent opinion survey from The Wall Street Journal, the president “cumulatively leads a generic Democratic opponent, 46 percent to 40 percent,” in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. The survey’s findings are not surprising, and it’s no small coincidence that those states are all thriving under the president’s pro-growth economic policies.

    Gabby Helsinger disciplined for Christian response to homosexualityIn a move reflecting increasing intolerance of traditional Christian values by public employees, an Ohio high school suspended a young woman for posting Bible verses in response to posters and flags at school celebrating homosexuality. Gabby Helsinger, a student at Lebanon High School in Lebanon, Ohio, was told March 8, the day after she affixed the Bible quotes to her locker and elsewhere, that she would be punished with an in-school suspension. The disciplinary measure prompted the student to record a video in which she recollects the events. The video was originally posted...

    President Donald Trump targeted both General Motors and an Ohio union official on Sunday over an assembly plant that the automaker closed earlier this month. His tweet amplifies the public pressure on GM to restart operations at the Lordstown, Ohio facility. Trump has frequently used his platform to push companies to take his preferred actions. Earlier this year, he threatened to cut the company's subsidies after it announced plans to slash production at several U.S. plants. On Sunday, Trump said he spoke to GM CEO Mary Barra about the facility and "asked her to sell it or do something quickly."...

    President Donald Trump is not happy that former House Speaker Paul Ryan blocked subpoenas of people and entities Trump thinks the House GOP should have been investigating during the first two years of his administration. Trump told Breitbart News in an exclusive lengthy Oval Office interview that Ryan blocked issuance of subpoenas to people he thinks should have been investigated on the political left, and now that the Republicans no longer have the majority in the House, people Trump says Ryan protected may have gotten away with whatever they did that warranted investigation. Trump said that House Freedom Caucus Chairman...

    The Giants on Tuesday agreed to send Beckham to the Browns for a 2019 first-round draft pick (No. 17 overall), a 2019 third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers. The Giants were not actively shopping Beckham but they were listening to offers, and when they found one they liked, they made the deal — no doubt changing the course and direction of their team now and for years to come...

    One common thread throughout the Mueller witch hunt for Russian collusion is that the Democrats often accused the Republicans of what they themselves were doing, from leaking secret information to the press, and other unauthorized parties, to the crux of the matter¸ paying British agents and Russian sources to interfere in the 2016 election. Democrats, as part of completing the fundamental transformation of America, were hoping for a twofer – put Hillary in the Oval Office and put Donald Trump in prison even if the agencies of the administration Hillary served had to manufacture some and Hillary paid for it....
  • Appeals Court Rules That Ohio's Law Defunding Planned Parenthood Is Constitutional

    A federal appeals court upheld the constitutionality of Ohio’s decision to defund Planned Parenthood Tuesday. The 2016 law bars state funding to any healthcare organization that performs or promotes abortions. Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, had sued over the law claiming that it violated their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 11-6 Tuesday to overturn a previous decision by a three-judge panel in the same appeals court that said the law was unconstitutional. During his time as the state’s attorney general last year, now-Gov. Mike DeWine (R) requested that the case...

    Buckeye Firearms Association ^ | 03-11-2019 | Staff
    Today Governor DeWine signed into law House Bill 86, sponsored by Representative Phil Plummer (R-Dayton). This emergency legislation corrects a drafting error by the Legislative Services Commission (LSC) in the passed version of HB 228 at the end of the last legislative session. It clarifies contradictory language on firearms, specifically what is and what is not “dangerous ordnance.” HB 86 contains an emergency clause. This means the confusing language from HB 228 is corrected immediately upon the bill taking effect on March 28, 2019. No firearms were ever banned as a result of this swift action by the Ohio General...

    Before every election, both parties try to figure out what states they are competitive in and they begin to work on a budget. The same holds true for PACs, who often has more money than the party. Priorities USA, an influential left-leaning political action committee, helped former President Barack Obama win re-election in 2012. They also worked for Hillary in 2016. They have surveyed the political landscape and have decided that Ohio is a low priority. In political speak, that means it’s not worth the money. That figures, the Democrats are keying on Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Michigan. From The...

    Jennifer Millar keeps trash bags and hand sanitizer near her tent, and she regularly pours water mixed with hydrogen peroxide on the sidewalk nearby. Keeping herself and the patch of concrete she calls home clean is a top priority. But this homeless encampment off a Hollywood freeway ramp is often littered with needles and trash and soaked in urine. Rats occasionally scamper through, and Millar fears the consequences. Infectious diseases—some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages—are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard. Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of typhus—a disease...
  • Ohio delays 3 executions after judge compares process to 'waterboarding'

    March 7 (UPI) -- Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on Thursday delayed the executions of three men on death row and asked corrections officials to review alternative methods of lethal injection after a federal judge compared the state's current process to waterboarding. The order came after Magistrate Judge Michael Merz issued a reprieve of execution for Warren Henness in January. The judge said Ohio's three-drug protocol for lethal injection would likely cause Henness "severe pain and needless suffering." Ohio was one of several states to alter the traditional drug protocol it used for decades in lethal injections after European drug companies...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio said Thursday that he will not run for president in 2020, a decision that comes after months of preparations for the Democratic primaries and just days after he appeared to be leaning toward a launch later this month. Brown, who revealed his plans in a conference call with home-state reporters, said he could be more effective in the Senate, where he just won a third term.

    A top Democratic super PAC that spent $133 million in support of Hillary Clinton in 2016 said it no longer considers Ohio a target state for the 2020 presidential election, as it looks to align with an increasingly socialist Democratic Party. In a memo, Priorities USA, a moneyed super PAC that supported both President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and Clinton’s 2016 run for the White House, downgraded Ohio’s importance and labeled the state a “GOP Watch,” along with states such as Texas and Iowa. The PAC now sees Ohio as less likely to flip than other swing states, such...
