    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...

    Outgoing Ohio Gov. John Kasich gave Senator-elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) a virtual pat on the back Tuesday, endorsing Romney’s Washington Post op-ed bashing President Donald Trump’s character. “Welcome to the fray,” wrote Kasich, linking to the op-ed published Tuesday.

    Republican John Kasich, who is thinking about running for president in 2020, is likely to announce as soon as this week that he will join a major cable news network, CNBC has learned. Kasich has signaled to close advisors and some donors that he is looking to sign with either CNN or MSNBC as he finishes his two-term tenure as Ohio's governor, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, including two who have been close to the governor since his 2016 presidential run.

    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...

WARREN, Ohio - According to Michael Currington, a representative for the city of Warren's police union, Google Earth shows clearly the reason for what started with a warning and ended with controversy."The resource officer had given a number of verbal warnings over a period of time to the principal of the facility to not park in a handicap designated area," said city law director Greg Hicks.But...
  • Six GOP Senators Offer to Trade Amnesties for Border Wall plus Cheap Labor

    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 –...

    Kollab studied at the Touro Medical School and was accepted at the Cleveland Clinic as a resident. 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...

    ... Four black coaches were fired Sunday or Monday, including the Jets’ Todd Bowles, who was let go shortly after his team’s final loss Sunday. The Jets had a 14-34 record in the last three seasons under Bowles. Marvin Lewis, who had been at the helm of the Cincinnati Bengals since 2003, was fired Monday. Though he had resurrected the moribund Bengals and took them to the playoffs multiple times, he never won a playoff game and this season was Cincinnati’s third consecutive one with a losing record. Also fired Monday was Denver Broncos Coach Vance Joseph, who had presided...

    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,...

    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich’s veto opposing a bill for gun owners’ rights was overturned by the Republican-led state legislature Thursday. The state House first voted to overturn Kasich’s veto on the bill, which makes it easier for off-duty police officers to access guns and also changes laws regarding self-defense cases. The state Senate then voted later, 21-11, turning down Kasich’s veto on the legislation, The Associated Press reported. The bill was heavily supported by pro-gun groups in the state that pushed lawmakers to overturn the veto.
  • Gun-owner rights bill becomes Ohio law after legislature overrode Kasich veto

    AP ^ | 12/27/18 | Staff
    A bill broadening gun-owner rights has become law in Ohio, after the Republican-led state Legislature overrode GOP Gov. John Kasich’s veto. The Senate voted 21-11 on Thursday to reject Kasich’s decision to strike down the bill. That followed a House override earlier in the day. The legislation expands gun access for off-duty police officers and allows pre-emption of local gun restrictions, among other things. Senators had hoped to address Kasich’s objections by stripping its so-called stand-your-ground language, but he vetoed the legislation anyway. Kasich opposed language shifting the burden of proof in self-defense cases from defendants to prosecutors. He also...

    NEW YORK — In testimony, James Comey admitted that when he infamously briefed then President-elect Donald Trump about the controversial dossier, Comey did not inform the incoming president about who financed the document. The detail, contained in a second round of Comey’s testimony released earlier this week, is particularly relevant since the embattled former FBI director admitted in testimony two weeks ago that he was aware the dossier authored by former British spy Christopher Steele was financed by Democrats who opposed Trump. Comey’s seeming withholding of information from Trump about the political origins of the dossier raises further questions. Comey...

    Ever since Oscar Williams started working at the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center in 2005, people keep asking him the same question. “A lot of people have been asking me, ‘When are you going to hire out there?’” said Williams, a member of the UAW civil rights team at the plant. “It’s been a rough couple of years lately. But now, we’re starting to hire, and we just want to show people what they need to do.” Wednesday morning marked the first of several recruiting sessions for the government-owned tank plant, which is seeing its biggest hiring effort since a 2007...

    Many media commentators are warning readers about a new Ohio bill because it could prevent women from obtaining abortions before they know they’re pregnant. But in the process of doing so, they’re making a pro-life message go viral: Abortion stops a beating heart.On Dec. 12, the Ohio Senate made national headlines for approving abortion legislation, known as the “heartbeat bill” or H.B. 258, which would ban the abortion of unborn babies with a detectable heartbeat. Republican Gov. John Kasich has promised to veto the bill – which resembles one he vetoed in 2016. But that didn’t keep the media, from...

    Ohio Congressman Warren Davidson thinks crowdfunding may provide a solution to the controversial proposal of building a wall on the Mexican border. And, perhaps more notably, he suggested using a cryptocurrency to do so. During an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep, the U.S. lawmaker explained that he has already proposed letting the American public pay for the wall, which is opposed by Democrats but mades up a key aspect of President Donald Trump’s list of 2016 campaign promises. In particular, Davidson told Inskeep, he has suggested a private funding program wherein “the American people, or whomever should choose to donate,”...

    It was only a few weeks ago when outgoing Ohio Governor John Kasich said he was seriously considering a 2020 primary challenge to President Trump, if only to “send a message.” (Who that message was intended for remains unclear.) But hey… the guy is going to be unemployed come January so he needs something to keep himself busy.But now, with Christmas fast approaching, something seems to have changed. During an interview with the Associated Press, Kasich was striking a decidedly different tone. Clearly, if you’re going to mount a primary challenge, you need to believe that you at least have...

    Classy: Nothing good that POTUS Donald Trump does will ever placate the perpetually triggered and angry American Left, but what he did for a 10-year-old girl battling stage four brain cancer this Christmas is worthy of high praise indeed. Cleveland resident Oliviah Hall has been battling a brain tumor since 2017 after being diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV. She was able to meet POTUS Trump during his midterm swing through Ohio and had a picture taken with him and her family.

Earlier, a Fox News interviewer asked the president about the possibility of Kasich or retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., running against him in 2020, and Trump responded, "I hope so." John Weaver, the Kasich strategist, responded to the remark with a warning. "Be careful what you wish for," Weaver said in a message to CNBC.

    Well, if Democratic bloodsports over the House speakership race was on your Christmas list, cross it off. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) now has a lock on it, with a deal struck with the anti-Pelosi wing on the Democratic Party, who vowed to oppose her bid. Some 16 House Democratsdeclared their opposition to her candidacy. Yet, their potential candidate to oppose Pelosi, Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), decided to bow out. Some other anti-Pelosi Democrats jumped ship as well. Still, there was a chance that this small band of rebels could cause Pelosi heartburn on the House floor. Now, such fears can...
