    A Catholic archdiocese outside Cincinnati is investigating the actions of some of its high school students during the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington Friday. Some students wearing Make America Great Again hats and clothing surrounded and taunted a Native American troupe as it performed the "American Indian Movement" song about strength and courage. It's not clear which of those young people surrounding the Native Americans are students of Covington Catholic High School in Covington, Kentucky. But the Diocese of Covington criticized any students who participated in the action, which broke out as a group from the school was in Washington...

    Full Title: Could Elon Musk save the jobs of GM workers? Tesla founder 'would be interested' in taking over General Motors' idled factories Elon Musk is eyeing General Motors' once-occupied plants. The billionaire tech mogul said it's 'possible that [Tesla] would be open' to taking over automakers' old plants, such as the five factories closed by GM last month. The comments came during Musk's wide-ranging interview with CBS' '60 Minutes.' GM CEO Mary Barra announced in November that the car manufacturer would close five factories in North America and lay off some 14,700 workers as a result. Musk indicated that...

    President Trump hosted a border security meeting at the White House Tuesday afternoon. In an effort to make progress on the government shutdown, Trump invited Republican and Democrat lawmakers to attend with ideas. Not a single Democrat showed up. Their leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, were also missing. “As Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi refuse to negotiate, President Donald J. Trump and his team are working hard to find solutions to solve the humanitarian and national security crisis at the border and reopen the government. The President has a proposal on the table...

    Outgoing Ohio Gov. John Kasich is signing with a top Hollywood talent agency. United Talent Agency (UTA) announced it had signed Kasich as one of its clients on Monday — the same day that the Republican governor, who’s considering a 2020 White House bid, was poised to leave office. Ohio Gov.-elect Mike DeWine (R) will replace him. UTA said in a statement that it “will help [Kasich] navigate the next phase of his public and private life.” “I’m excited to work with UTA to keep my voice active across the world and share my experiences and observations to help improve...

    Breitbart ^ | January 10,2019 | Neil Munro
    Six GOP Senators briefed Jared Kushner and President Donald Trump’s top congressional aide about a plan to swap two amnesties in exchange for border-wall funding. The six GOP Senators included Graham, North Carolina’s Thom Tillis, Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, Ohio’s Rob Portman, Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, and Maine’s Susan Collins. The Senators’ draft offer to the Democrats, however, also includes incentives sought by GOP-aligned business groups, such as an expansion of the H-2B blue collar visa-worker program. Few Democrats support the H-2B visa program but its inclusion could encourage GOP legislators to ignore protests from the GOP’s pro-American base. Several GOP Senators...

    Victor Espinosa, a lecturer in sociology at Ohio State University, has been telling students that they are forbidden from using the term ‘illegal immigrant’ to describe immigrants who did not enter the country through the legal method. Because – drum roll – it is offensive. Mr Espinosa has written to at least one student telling them they ‘will not be allowed to use the term illegal to refer to an unauthorized immigrant’ because it ‘dehumanizes, marginalizes and racializes the people it seeks to describe.’ In his wisdom and generosity, Espinosa grants that students may use the term illegal immigration –...

    Two House committees want an accounting from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber of his investigation into whether the Justice Department and the FBI abused its authority in their probes of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump's election campaign. The Republican ranking members of the House Government Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Huber on Monday seeking an update of his work. "Your investigation has been ongoing for over nine months," wrote Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the top GOP members of the Oversight and Judiciary committees,...

    The Ohio legislature has passed an override of Governor Kasich' veto of HB 228. There are several major reforms in Ohio's HB 228. One provision is to strengthen Ohio's preemption statute. Ohio, as with most states, has a law that reserves statutory authority about firearms to the legislature. Local governments and regulatory bodies are not allowed to make a crazy quilt of ordinances and regulations to prevent the exercise of Second Amendment rights in the State.Local governments refused to repeal ordinances that infringed on second amendment rights, producing a chilling effect on the exercise of those rights. A provision...

    Violent crimes increased by more than 50 percent in 2018 in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, nicknamed “little Mogadishu,” which authorities attribute to Somali gang activity in the area. Buried in a recent Star Tribune article was the fact that violent crimes jumped from 54 in 2010 to 84 in 2018, an increase in roughly 56 percent. Authorities attribute the violence to rivalries between Somali gangs, such as the Somali Mafia, the Somali Outlaws, the Hot Boyz, and Madhibaan with Attitude ... the Outlaws and Madhibaan with Attitude have a rivalry that stretches back years ... A 2013 CBS article detailed the...

    The Cleveland Clinic confirmed that a resident who posted anti-Semitic comments on social media is no longer with the organization. The former employee, identified as Lara Kollab, worked as a supervised resident at the Clinic from July to September of this year. “She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system,” the Clinic said in a prepared statement. The Clinic said it was recently made aware of Kollab’s comments on social media. The former...

    [snip] Ironically, the far left finds racism, bigotry, and problematic behavior in everything and everyone, but when it comes to people of the Jewish faith—they’re fair game in terms of being subjected to vicious discrimination and a variety of epithets. This resident at a clinic in Cleveland reportedly called Jewish people dogs, was rather unsympathetic about the Holocaust, and joked about purposefully giving Jewish people the wrong medication. Needless to say, she was fired in September of 2018 for this demented behavior. Dr. Death will have no chance in potentially rearing its ugly head (via Times of Israel): "A hospital...

    Ohio lawmakers voted Thursday to override Governor Kasich's veto on a self-defense gun bill Now, major changes will be coming to the way prosecutors handle self-defense cases and to gun laws across the state. House Bill 228 was once a "stand your ground" bill but turned into a self-defense bill after it received some opposition at the statehouse. Over the summer, anti-gun violence group Moms Demand Action went to the statehouse to try and stop the bill from passing.

    Is there any profession that merits the esteem that doctors have?  I don't think so. What doctors do not only requires significant brains, but requires professionalism, because patient trust is so critical.  Without that trust, how would a doctor be able to get a patient to take his or her clothes off, bend over for an exam, or accept a medical treatment with bad side effects?  Trust is what makes the whole profession work. This is why this story out of Cleveland is so chilling. Medical resident at Cleveland Clinic Lara Kollab, who published antisemitic statements on Twitter regarding her Jewish patients at the hospital, was dismissed from...

A medical resident at the Cleveland Clinic was fired after scores of her anti-Semitic social media posts were discovered. Dr. Lara Kollab worked at the Clinic from July 2018 – September 2018. The Clinic fired her after the messages, which were posted over at least the last seven years, were flagged. The Clinic on Monday in a statement confirmed Kollab’s firing, after reports about her posts began circulating online. “This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to...

    There’s a lengthy, sordid history of the damage children suffer because of “progressive” values and policies. In 2018, the harm went beyond passive side effects. The left is now brazenly cheering over the corruption, pain and heartbreak of children. And sometimes, their deaths. What can be done? We must work within all lawful means possible to stop this evil. Here are some of the year’s worst examples, although this article could go on and on: 10. Colleges are now recommending 4-year-olds engage in sexual activity. Yes, some UC Santa Barbara academics have advanced the idea that pre-schoolers should engage in...

    Ohio's "heartbeat bill," which would have prohibited killing unborn children with a detectable heartbeat, went down in flames on Thursday after the Senate failed by one vote to override Gov. Kasich's heartless veto of the bill. The bill passed both chambers earlier this month — the House by a comfortable majority and the Senate 18-13 — but Kasich followed through on his promise to veto the bill. In Ohio, a three-fifths majority is required to override a veto, which meant that two additional votes were needed in the Senate. The Ohio House voted earlier today to override Kasich's veto 61-28,...
