SINCLAIR BROADCAST COMING TO CLEVELAND…?

July 3rd, 2017

Local television news in Cleveland is about to get a whole lot worse.

The biggest winner in the ill-conceived snap election was hope for a better world. Mehdi Hasan, writing in Jeremy Corbyn Is Leading the Left Out of […]

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JIM RENACCI (OH-16):
STAND WITH AMERICA, OR THE ONE PERCENT…?

June 4th, 2017

So, is Rep. Jim Bupkis* Renacci in favor of clawing back a few of those 13 million clean energy jobs President Donald John Trump just shipped to China, or does he think exporting experts to France is a good idea? *After extensive searches, I have been unable to determine what Renacci’s middle initial stands for.
