[Update at 1042—Jake Nevins offers his take in John Oliver on the coal industry: ‘Trump needs to stop lying to miners’ for The Guardian.] So, at the time I posted John Oliver’s latest, the video had only been viewed 121,520 times, garnering 11,888 likes and 271 dislikes (a number, I’ll assume, representing all of Robert […]

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.

When corporate mercenaries thugs strike are Americans safe? There is a long history in the United States of corporations using private armies to destroy those who threaten their profits. The latest permutation of this abomination comes in the form of Energy Transfer Partners’ (builder of the Dakota Access and Rover—here in Ohio—pipe lines) hiring of […]

My congressional representative Jim Bupkis* Renacci remains silent on the rogue fossil fuel company pissing on his constituents living along the scorched-scorched earth path of the Rover pipeline. This morning I learned two additional ways that Energy Transfer Partners is flipping the bird at Ohioans as workers gleefully bulldoze a path across the state, regardless […]

If you were an Ohioan pissed off at those protesters in South Dakota supporting the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in the attempt to halt Energy Transfer Partners construction of the Dakota Access Pipe Line, then environmental karma is coming for your land. ETP has already had the first leak in the not-yet-opened DAPL and—surprise, surprise—dumped […]

This is what he said to his constituents in his weekly newsletter: This week, I took the first step in fulfilling a promise I made to the 16th District and was elected on: repealing and replacing Obamacare with a more patient-centered, affordable, and flexible health care system. Ohioans are suffering under Obamacare. Premiums have risen […]

After Bernie Sanders withdrew from the 2016 race for the Democratic Party nomination the people who believe in the necessity for progressive policies directed towards the needs of the 99 percent and not the 1 percent stayed organized. As I’ve heard Steve Holecko say time and time again as part of his introduction at meetings […]

I know that this has become, perhaps, an annoying reminder that I repeat and repeat, but I don’t think I state this fact often enough: corporations have one, and only one, function, they must, by law, always, always, always, maximize shareholder value. Nothing must be allowed to hinder the reaching of that goal. Absolutely nothing. […]

Strictly speaking eminent domain involves paying what the buyer (and possibly the courts) consider the fair market value for the land taken, but if you really don’t want this kind of scar bifurcating your farmland, well tough shit. The oil, or in this case, natural gas, must flow! Lou Whitmire, reporting in Pipeline altering countryside […]

Perhaps Governor John Richard Kasich would have been smarter to deploy those 37 Ohio State Troopers he sent to North Dakota to protect Energy Transfer’s Dakota Access Pipeline to watch another of the company’s pipeline projects—The Rover Pipeline—which may have dumped millions of gallons of toxic liquids into Ohio’s farmlands, wetlands and rivers leading into […]

So, I made phone calls and sent emailS regarding the impending passage of Trumpcare on 23 and 24 March encouraging my member of congress in the House of Representatives. I encouraged Rep. Jim Renacci, to stand up and not throw thousands of his constituents, including veterans, under the bus by replacing the Affordable Care Act […]

Members of the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus have been talking a lot about the importance of presenting our very real and deadly serious questions to our representatives in Congress through the medium of town hall meetings. The problem is that now that they have to actually govern, Republicans are avoiding constituents at open meetings like […]

Citizens in Rep. Jim Renacci’s district want to talk to him. Renacci, however, has gone to ground and is only speaking through tele-townhall meetings where, like radio shows with broadcast delays, his staff can control who gets to ask questions that Renacci likes. Vicki Boatright and Lorraine Wilburn, reporting in Gibbs, Renacci should listen to […]

Yesterday my congressman in the House of Representatives, Jim Renacci, published Commentary: Ensuring veterans get the support they need in Wooster, Ohio’s The Daily Record.

There are three kinds of Republicans in our House of Representatives: there are the members of the Freedom Caucus who publicly stood up and said they would vote No on Trumpcare because of their Conservative principles (like Jim Jordan (OH-4); there are those members who publicly stood up and said they would vote No on […]

I think that comparing today’s events to Waterloo is way over the top. President Donald John Trump is far from finished (although I think Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, whom I’d cast as Ahab in this saga, may be done). If we have to reach for a military metaphor, perhaps Operation Market Garden and […]
