Bill Clinton wouldn’t mind being 20 years old again, the 70-year-old former U.S. president told thousands of people gathered on Ohio University’s College Green Tuesday morning, but he wouldn’t want to take America back 50 years to do it.
That’s what Clinton accused Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of advocating as Clinton campaigned for his wife, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, during a “stronger together” bus tour of Ohio earlier this week that included a stop in Athens, with about 3,500 people in attendance according to the campaign.
In a speech that lasted over 45 minutes, Clinton covered a wide variety […]Full Story... →
Following her economic address in Toledo earlier in the day Monday, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a stunning address in Akron at an Ohio Democratic Party voter registration event.
The perennial battleground state of Ohio, which has made or broken many a candidate’s run for the White House, shows mixed results in new polling today from Quinnipiac and Ipsos. Polling results in other battleground states shows great news for Clinton.
Polls Conflict On Ohio Race
According to today’s Quinnipiac numbers, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump leads Clinton in Ohio. At the same time, more polling from Ipsos shows the Q-Poll […]Full Story... →
With less than 40 days until Nov. 8, Election Day, many factors can factor into whether voters stick with their presidential nominee of choice or switch to another one based on breaking stories that reveal who their candidate is and how they really operate.
The big story on Friday comes via an article in The Washington Post that documents the fact—according to the state attorney general’s office—that Republican presidential nominee Donald John Trump’s charitable foundation, headquartered in New York City, has never obtained the certification that the State of New York requires before charities can solicit money from the […]Full Story... →
Newsweek reported this week that Donald Trump, the New York billionaire who has managed to become the Republican presidential nominee this year, explored business opportunities in Cuba in the late 1990s in what appears to be a direct violation of the U.S. embargo.
Doing what he does best, denying what documents and insiders say about his activities, Donald Trump claims that since he didn’t do a deal in Cuba, he never did business there. He told New Hampshire’s NH1 News, “No, I never did anything in Cuba. I never did a deal in Cuba.”
In its very detailed article, […]Full Story... →
Ahead of Hillary Clinton’s visit Monday to Ohio, where she’ll deliver an economic speech in Toledo and end her day with a get-out-the-vote rally in partnership with the Ohio Democratic Party in Akron, Business Insider is revealing through an official and exclusive op-ed that will also run in the Akron Business Journal that Buckeye State basketball star Lebron James, a poor kid raised by a single mom who brought an NBA championship to the Cleveland Cavaliers for the first time this year, will endorse her for president.
James, whose nickname”The King” is well deserved since he earned it the hard way […]Full Story... →
The evidence of a deranged Donald Trump inspired by the ghost of Hitler continues to grow. The latest avalanche of damning material arrived in the review of a volume examining the Nazi leader’s malignant words and actions jn a new book of nearly 1,000 pages in the New York Times. Titled “Hitler Ascent,1889-1939”, Vol. One, by German historian Volker Ullrich, the bio provides a matrix that easily invites a horrific comparision with the Republican nominee.
The reviewer, Michiko Kakutani, draws many elements of Hitler’s brutal rise to power without mentioning Trump – it was translated from a German text – […]Full Story... →
A new group designed to accommodate Republicans who are breaking their Republican bonds to support Hillary Clinton for president, Together for America, hosted a conference call Thursday to discuss the impact of the first presidential debate between Mrs. Clinton and her Republican opponent, Donald John Trump.
With fewer than 40 days left until Election Day arrives on Nov. 8, more and more Republicans and independents upset and turned off by Mr. Trump’s misogynistic, racist persona are rallying behind the Democratic.
One day after former Republican Armed Services Chairman, Virginia Senator John Warner, said he is supporting Clinton-Kaine, Hillary for America […]Full Story... →
The state of Ohio released school report cards earlier this month, and they should be treated with the seriousness of a thumbed-nose farting noise in a Monty Python sketch.
Across the state this year, district grades are down as new tests have set benchmarks higher for students than in years past.
The state’s A-F system for grading public schools began in 2013 and replaced the old system that ranked districts from “excellent” to “continuing improvement” to “academic emergency.”
While an “overall district grade” will not be in place until 2018, each school and district did receive six separate A-F grades, […]Full Story... →
In the brief pause after the first debate, I want to recognize a special group of Republican Ohio politicians that I will continue to do up to election day.
It’s the shadowy group that endorsed Donald Trump and then took the first covered wagon out of town. Now you see ‘em and now you don’t. Profiles in courage they aren’t. That’s an attribute that only shows up in their yard signs.
Allow me to share the list with you: Sen. Rob Portman, U.S. Rep. Renacci, Atty. Gen. Mike DeWine, Secretary of State Jon Husted, Treasurer Josh Mandel, Ohio House Speaker […]Full Story... →
As written about here on Plunderbund and elsewhere, this week Donald Trump’s incompetence and arrogance were both on full bombastic, sputtering and sniffling display for all of America to see at the first presidential debate between the businessman and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Trump’s debate performance was what he himself would likely refer to as a “disaster” — since he calls so many of the “problems” in this country “disasters” — and he wouldn’t be wrong if he did.
Even John Podhoretz of the New York Post wrote that,”By the time the last 15 minutes rolled around, [Trump] was reduced to yammering […]Full Story... →
On his weekly Wednesday call with reporters, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown said he just did something he’s never done before, voting to override President Barack Obama.
The bill Sen. Brown voted to override, called the 911 Victims Lawsuit Bill, also received votes from 97 of his colleges versus only one who voted to not override, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The controversial bill would allow the families of Sept. 11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia for allegedly backing the terrorists who carried out the attacks. Reports said Defense Secretary Ash Carter said an override would be devastating to the […]Full Story... →
