Ohio Voters Are Not Stupid, the Polls Are Mostly Bulls**t and Tim Ryan Is Losing

There was a debate Monday in the Ohio Senate race, which isn’t really a race, because Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan is going to lose, badly. The only suspense is the exact size of J.D. Vance’s winning margin. Let’s be clear about one basic fact: Ohio is a Republican state. There was a time, as recently […]

The Future Democratic Voters Project and the 10-Year-Old Ohio Rape Victim

One of the things about political tribalism is that it encourages participants to think of politics as a fight for survival — Us and Them — in which there are no rules. The Democratic Party has made identity politics part of their core belief system, which interwoven with the strategic idea that demographic trends (particularly […]

Illegal Alien Charged With Raping and Impregnating 10-Year-Old in Ohio

Ann Coulter remarks that now we know why the media weren’t identifying the predator involved in this headline-making atrocity: A Columbus man has been charged with impregnating a 10-year-old Ohio girl, whose travel to Indiana to seek an abortion led to international attention following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade and activation […]

‘Not a Whisper Anywhere’: Abortion Story About 10-Year-Old Ohio Girl Looking More and More Like a Complete Hoax

As any student of logic knows, it is very difficult to prove a negative, so I hesitate to say that the latest developments have definitively debunked the sensational story about a 10-year-old Ohio girl going to neighboring Indiana for an abortion. I first called attention to this story (“A Story Too Good to Check?”) on July […]

There’s Always a Backstory: Why Was Ma’khia Bryant Living in a Foster Home?

Look closely at that photo. It’s what Columbus, Ohio, police Officer Nick Reardon was looking at a split second before he fired his pistol. The fat girl in blue jeans — 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant — had a kitchen knife in her right hand and was about to stab the woman in pink. In the parlance […]

Something Has Gone Disastrously Wrong With the Criminal Justice System in Ohio

Say hello to Cortez Turray Larkin, Ohio’s one-man crime wave. If I were a citizen of Ohio, I would be bombarding my state legislators with emails and telephone calls demanding to know why the state has been unable to keep this lifelong criminal locked up. On Memorial Day 2016, police in Columbus arrested Larkin for […]

Make Birthdays Great Again

Say hello to Jason, an Ohio boy who turned 12 years old yesterday. Because it was Election Day, and because Jason’s a big Trump supporter — it’s Ohio, which went for Trump by an 8-point margin — his family gave him a MAGA-themed birthday party. Instead of singing “Happy Birthday,” his family serenaded him with […]

Joe Biden Is Not Barack Obama (and Other Truths the Media Elite Can’t See)

In 2016, Donald Trump got 62.9 million votes, or about 2 million more votes than Mitt Romney got in 2012. Who were those voters? Hillary Clinton sneered at them as “deplorables,” and media elites have spent the past four years trying to pretend those voters don’t matter. You see evidence of that kind of make-believe […]
