Feds File ‘Hate Crime’ Charges Citing Suspect’s Confederate Flag Tattoo as Evidence of Race Hate

-By Warner Todd Huston

Federal prosecutors filed “hate crime” charges against an Ohio man for beating a black man citing the suspect’s Confederate flag tattoo as evidence of his racial animus towards blacks, a report says.

The federal complaint filed in Toledo, Ohio, charges 33-year-old Charles Butler with a hate crime in the beating of African American Adrian Williams, 46. Butler, the filing says, is a racist who hates blacks because he has numerous tattoos of Nazi symbols and Confederate flags, according to TheSmokingGun website.

Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, said in the court filing that Butler and his accomplice, 25-year-old Robert Paschalis, were “white supremacists” and cited Butler’s Nazi-image-strewn Facebook page as evidence. She also pointed to Butler’s many tattoos to prove his racist intentions in the attack.

John Kasich and His Big Government Education Disconnect

John Kasich and His Big Government Education Disconnect

-By Warner Todd Huston

Ohio Governor John Kasich talked about education at the GOP debate in Detroit, but what he said essentially reveals the disconnect between apparent conservative rhetoric and a less conservative love of big government.

Talking about how the schools in Cleveland, one of the largest cities in his home state of Ohio, have been turning around lately due to new policies, the Governor tried to wrench that into federal policy.

Those local policies may be all well and good, but one sentence he unleashed that night revealed a dichotomy between conservative boilerplate and the usual, big government nonsense we see from establishment and Washington Republicans.

“And, frankly, look, if I were president,” Kashich said, “I’d take 104 federal programs, bundle them into four buckets, and send it to the states, because fixing schools rests at the state and the local level, and particularly at the school board level.”

Notice the disconnect? He began talking about those “buckets” of federal money he’d “send to the states” for education. And why would he send all those buckets loaded with tax dollars? Because “fixing schools rests at the state and the local level, and particularly at the school board level.”

So, what is the disconnect?

SHOCK REPORT: Ohio TV Station Actually Calls Black Violence ‘Hate Crimes’

-By Warner Todd Huston

In nearly every big city in America gangs of black youths have been roaming through the city searching out white people to beat and sometimes kill. A major book chronicling these “hate crimes” was published a few years ago but other than that the media has ignored the truth for fear of being called “racists.” But one TV news station has told the truth, these crimes fit the mold of a “hate crime” like no other.

I interviewed the author of the book White Girl Bleed A Lot for Breitbart in November of last year, but the crimes Colin Flaherty described in his book didn’t stop in 2013. Now a Cincinnati, Ohio TV news outfit has done what no other TV news has done, pointed out that these crimes are based in black racism.

The anchor there is Rob Braun of Channel 12 News, WKRC in Cincy. Rob is a member of a major media family in Cincinnati. His dad, Bob Braun, was famous in the region for hosting a morning show for decades in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Bob’s nephew, Bucks Braun was a major radio personality in Dayton, Ohio. I mention all this to note that Rob is not an inconsequential figure in Cincinnati.

Ohio Court Upholds Firing of School Teacher Fired for Christian Religious Views

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Ohio Supreme Court upheld the 2011 firing of school teacher John Freshwater saying that his insistence in keeping Christian symbols in his classroom somehow violated the U.S. Constitution.

The story began all the way back in 2008 when Ohio’s Mount Vernon City Schools began the process of firing science teacher Freshwater because he had religious symbols like his personal Bible in the classroom.

The school system maintained that he was “violating” the Constitution by having Christian symbols in his public school classroom.

There was also a false report that he used heated tools to “brand” crosses onto the arms of some students. This charge was dropped years later.

Eventually the school system fired the teacher because he refused to remove the religious symbols including his personal Bible which he kept on his desk.

Now the Ohio Supreme Court is upholding that firing.

Supposed ‘Racist’ Attacks at Oberlin College Done by Liberals Wanting to ‘Stir The Pot’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Earlier this year Oberlin College in Ohio was shut down after a series of racist, anti-Semitic, and KKK-related incidents occurred on campus. For months the liberal media went wild over the “right-wing attacks” on minorities. Now, it has been proven that the whole mess was perpetrated by two liberal Obama supporters who wanted to “stir the pot.”

In March, when news of the incidents broke, news agencies across the country gravely reported on the “racism” at the school. In one case, the Associated Press went all weak in the knees when Hollywood actress Lena Dunham–an Oberlin grad–Tweeted about how shameful it was that right-wingers were destroying her school.

But now the truth has emerged: the incidents weren’t perpetrated by real racists, or any one on the right at all.

Just as Michelle Malkin knew from the beginning, it was liberals all along.

In Mistaken ‘Repossession’ Bank Steals Woman’s Belongs, Refuses to Pay Restitution

-By Warner Todd Huston

If you haven’t paid your bills there is expectation that you can lose everything, of course. But what if you are not behind in your bills, but a bank that isn’t your bank breaks into your house, hauls away your belongings, changes your locks, all claiming you owe them money? And what happens when the bank realizes it got the wrong house? Worse, how would you feel if the bank refuses to pay you back for its destruction of all your belongings?

Well, that is what happened to an Ohio woman.

Katie Barnett of Athens County, Ohio, came home one day to find that her key wouldn’t work in her front door lock. She was able to shinny her way into her home through a window, but what she found inside shocked her.

Her home had been emptied of nearly every possession.

Cincinnati Skywalk: The Folly of Government Writ Large

-By Warner Todd Huston

The folly of government planners is writ large in Cincinnati, Ohio. In the late 1960s the city fathers of The Queen City decided that the only way to revitalize its downtown businesses and to compete with the large shopping malls then just starting to spread across the nation was to create a “skywalk” system–a series of pedestrian bridges that loomed over the city streets connecting buildings one to the other. But, now the same city is saying getting rid of those same skywalks will revitalize the downtown area.

So, in one decade, city planners said that it was important to spend millions of tax dollars to create dozens of bridges across city streets because it was the only way to revitalize a declining city center, yet but a few decades later city planners reversed themselves saying that spending millions of tax dollars to dismantle that same bridge system is the only way to revitalize a declining city center.

Either way, the taxpayers are stuck with the bills.

No exact date for implementation of the new delivery schedule was announced, but the change will come later this summer.

The delivery schedule change is part of a larger reorganization and coincides with the creation of a new company, the Northeast Ohio Media Group, which will oversee the print edition as well as its growing online content.

Fmr Pres of Local Chapter of Ohio NAACP: Steubenville Rape Victim Was ‘Drunk and Willing’

-By Warner Todd Huston

In a new interview, the former president of the Steubenville chapter of the NAACP places the blame for the infamous Steubenville, Ohio rape case on the victim claiming that because she was drunk and freely attended the party at which she was assaulted, she was essentially willing to allow the attack.

The controversial comments were made in an interview with Royal Mayo conducted by the International Business Times. Until late 2010, Mayo was the president of the local chapter of the NAACP and is now a member of that chapter’s executive committee. Mayo is also a lifelong resident of the Steubenville area.

The Steubenville rape case made national news when a video of students perpetrating the crime on the drunk and unconscious victim was spread via social media. The video and still photos taken by other kids at the parties became central in a trial that resulted in the conviction of two students, football players Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond.

Thousands Turn Out in Ohio For Stevie Wonder Obama Event…OK, It Was Only 200

-By Warner Todd Huston

Apparently even superstar Stevie Wonder can’t get people excited about voting for Obama in Ohio. Only 200 people showed up at a Saturday morning rally featuring the famed singer.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that singer Wonder announced from the stage that he’d sing a few songs, then the participants could board waiting vans that would take them to a local early voting place, and then he’d sing some more when they came back.

But, as the paper notes, no one went to vote. “No one left to vote after the first — or any — song.” The vans stayed idle.

On the other hand, Romney is generating throngs of people at his Ohio events.

Biden’s Custard Pie Soured By Non-Supporter in Ohio

-By Warner Todd Huston

As “Sheriff” Joe Biden stopped by Schmucker’s Restaurant in Toledo, Ohio to have a nice slice of custard pie, his sweet snack was soured by a disgruntled voter who told him to enjoy being VP while it lasted because the end is near, at least the voter hoped so, anyway.

Joe bellied up to the counter to order his pie and sat down next to a male voter who wasn’t so happy with the Obama administration. According to Politico’s Donovan Slack, the voter opened his conversation telling Joe he was “a good guy” but went on to tell him he hoped Joe would lose his bid for re-election.

“Before that, I told him to enjoy his last couple of months,” the man, who declined to give his name, said. “Just because you’re a good guy doesn’t mean you’re a good vice president.”

Slack noted that Biden sensibly took his pie to another table after the encounter with the soured voter.

More Proof: Democrats Just Love Vote Fraud

July 6, 2012 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Government, Liberals, Ohio, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

Fraud. This is one of the big reasons I am wholly against ballot measures. Rarely is there ever a ballot measure sponsored by Democrats that isn’t shot all the way through with petition fraud and we see it again in Ohio.

This time a petition drive is being pushed by several extremist left-wing groups to create an un-elected, state-wide board of quasi officials that will determine the shape of Ohio’s voting districts, all without input from the voters. In other words, Democrats and Sorros-like left-wingers want to put in an un-elected group of hacks that will always go their way regardless of the political climate in the state.

The way these left-wing groups are pushing this idea on Ohio is via a ballot measure. The idea of a ballot initiative is to get a certain number of signatures from voters so that the question can be put on the ballot at the next election. Then voters can decide if they want it or don’t want it. Seems regular old democracy, right?

But the problem with these left-wing ballot initiatives is that they are always, always, always filled with fraud. Democrats always fake thousands of signatures, commit fraud on a daily basis to get their numbers, lie to voters, and generally break every law on the books that governs ballot initiatives. And this one is no different.

Maggie Thurber reports that Democrats are telling people to sign their names multiple times, that they should make up names, that they can sign for family and friends… just committing fraud every day they walk the streets looking for signatures.

Bridge Bomber’s Name Appears on Occupy Cleveland Bldg. Lease, Occupiers Mad at FBI Instead

-By Warner Todd Huston

In another story that should surprise no one, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reveals that the name of one of the Ohio bridge bombers nabbed by the FBI is so closely involved with Occupy Cleveland that his name appears on the lease of the rented warehouse they use for a headquarters. Instead of being ashamed, though, the Occupiers are mad at the FBI, apparently.

When stories about the late April arrest of five Ohio men who had formed a plot to bomb some key bridges in Ohio first surfaced, the Old Media called them merely “anarchists.”

It wasn’t long, though, before the New Media began to find out that they weren’t just any amorphous “anarchists,” but members of the Occupy Wall Street movement in Cleveland (Occupy Cleveland). No Old Media outlets reported this in the beginning despite how easy it was to find the facts.

Red Light Cameras: Government’s ‘It’s For Public Safety’ Lie

February 6, 2012 | Filed Under Anti-Semitism, Budget, Cities, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Economy/Finances, Ethics, Government, Liberals, Ohio, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

Red light cameras are a mixed bag across the USA. Big cities love them, small cities increasingly less. But one thing is universal where ever they are tried. The whole thing is about revenue generation, not public safety. Most city administrations try desperately to hide their greed behind hoary claims of safeguarding the public, but at least Toledo, Ohio has dispensed with some of that subterfuge and is admitting straight out that making money is a main goal.

Last month Toledo’s finance director told the city council that they were installing 11 new red light cameras with the expectation that the project would “raise” $320,000. What did the city need that new revenue for? More government spending, of course.

Oh, and it’s for the children, too. Toledo Councilman Steve Steel was excited to get the new revenue. “It does restore the biggest thing we were looking for, which was giving kids something constructive to do in a positive atmosphere,” he crowed.

So, now officials will berate you if you stand against these useless devices that are just a means to give government more money to spend on pet projects because, darn it, it’s for the children! WHY do you hate kids, taxpayers?

Defeat of OH Issue 2 Means $1,468 More Per Taxpayer By 2015

Defeat of OH Issue 2 Means $1,468 More Per Taxpayer By 2015

-By Warner Todd Huston

Matt Mayer of the Buckeye Institute has done the math on what a defeat of Issue 2 will cost Ohio’s taxpayers. Turns out it will cost taxpayers $1,468 more a year by 2015.

Mayer made a simple calculation by taking the $8 billion tax hike that a defeat of Issue 2 will usher in by 2015 and dividing that by the 5,448, 500 state tax returns filed in Ohio. He also took the initial $1.4 billion tax hike that will result if the unions win on Tuesday and found that each taxpayer will be stuck with an immediate $257 more in taxes next year.

The annual savings we calculated from SB5 once all contracts are negotiated would be nearly $1.4 billion per year (for details, see

In 2007, Ohio had 5,448,500 [tax] returns filed, so that would equate to a “tax” of $257 per return… That is [merely] the savings from SB5 enactment.

An additional wrinkle is that Big Labor/Democrats have essentially gone all in on higher taxes; meaning, if SB5 is repealed, that removes one option to reducing local government costs, which leaves two options–program/staff cuts and/or raising taxes… For example, Ohio’s 613 school districts currently project a collective deficit by 2015 of [approximately $8 billion]…

[Thus, without] SB5, taxes will have to go up … [at least] $8 billion just for [Ohio’s] 613 school districts by 2015, which is $1,468 per return.

So, Ohio, you have a choice. Vote Issue 2 down and stick yourself with needlessly higher taxes and give unions the ability to stick it to you further, or give your legislature — not union bosses — the power to control your state’s budget like they should.

Ohio, Vote YES on Issue 2

-By Warner Todd Huston

A few days ago the Cincinnati Enquirer came out in support of Issue 2, which will enact Senate Bill 5 — a reformation of how the Buckeye State deals with government unions.

For decades, Ohio has been on an unsustainable path of rapidly increasing public-sector benefits. SB 5 would give the people we choose to manage our money, our safety and our schools greater flexibility in benefits and work rules for public employees, bringing them closer in line with what comparable workers receive in the private sector. That could relieve the pressure to raise taxes and thus help, not hurt, middle-class Ohioans.

This is an important bill not just for Ohio, but for the whole country. What Ohio is trying to do (and what Governor Walker of Wisconsin has already done) is to take away the power of un-elected union bosses from determining how the state’s budget will be spent. Ohio is trying to take back the reins of making policy, allocating tax money, and making rules for employment from the union thugs that now have control over it all.

This new rule that states such as Ohio and Wisconsin are struggling to pass is not a war against the middle class, nor even necessarily a war against the idea of unions themselves. It is a move toward fiscal responsibility and the democratic process.

These new reforms must pass now or our states will necessarily go bankrupt for all the unfunded liabilities and unfair goodies handed out to government union members.

Pass issue 2, Ohio.

Poll Shows that 6 out of 10 Voters in Ohio Do Not Understand the History of Unionization in America


First of all, I am a union man. I am a member in good standing in a trade union, where I hold journeyman status.

Now, I was reading a report form Reuters about the popularity for the repeal of a law restricts the rights of public sector employees entered into collective bargaining agreements.

Almost 6 out of 10 Ohio voters say they want to repeal a law that restricts collective bargaining by public sector unions…

Ohio voters by 57 percent to 32 percent support the repeal of the law, which forbids government workers from going on strike…

While Wisconsin’s public sector union fight featured mass protests at the state capital and gained more national attention, Ohio is more important to unions.

Ohio has the sixth largest number of public sector union members among all U.S. states, twice the number of Wisconsin. Wisconsin’s law restricting collective bargaining exempts police and firefighters, but Ohio’s includes them.

Anyone familiar with the history of unionization in America would understand what an abomination it is that public sector employees (what were once known as public servants) might have any right whatsoever to engage in collective bargaining– and perhaps most of all the Post Office. Read more

Union’s Battle Against Ohio Heats Up

-By Warner Todd Huston

On November 8, Ohioans will go to the polls to vote on a series of ballot initiatives, among them Issue 2.

A yes vote will support Governor Kasich’s collective bargaining reform (SB 5) to become law. A no vote would return power to the bloated, thieving unions to do hat they have always done: steal from the taxpayers. (I wonder if you can tell which side I am on, here? Ha, ha)

Unions have rolled into Ohio with millions of dollars for anti-issue 2 advertising, donations to politicians, and the usual corrupt bargaining behind the scenes that unions generally employ. Sadly, it looks like their big money has persuaded too many Ohioans to back the unions as polling shows Issue 2 is losing with voters.

Idiot Ohio Congressman Bans, Confiscates Devices at Townhall

I go after the left all the time for opposing free speech and for doing its best to shut down citizens, especially at townhall events. Well here is an example of a Republican doing the same thing. His actions are those I’d instantly condemn were it a left-wing Democrat (but I repeat myself) perpetrating it. And so, I similarly condemn Rep. Steve Chabot (R, OH 1st District) for acting the jackbooted authoritarian at his recent townhall.

In fact, it’s such an outrage that I am going to reference a report on the matter and, shock of shocks, agree with their basic point! Chabot was wrong to do this.

Fearing pushback on issues like ending Medicare and corporate tax dodging, Chabot took an extraordinary step in order to prevent a possible “Youtube moment”: he banned constituents from filming the town hall. Outside the town hall were multiple signs reading, “For Security Purposes, Cameras Are NOT Permitted.” In fact, on at least two separate occasions, middle-aged constituents who tried to record the public event had their cameras confiscated and were asked to leave.

Even worse, it was members of the Cincinnati Police that Chabot impressed to do the confiscating. Shades of jackboots, eh?

Chabot had “reasons,” though.

My Friend Maggie Thurber has a great piece chronicling the hate that unions in Ohio display for those voters that stand against the absurd riches that government employees have wrung out of the taxpayers in the Buckeye State.

Pointing out that union supporters are “dripping with ‘hate’ and derision toward people who see a problem and are trying to fix it,” Thurber does a great job of identifying the flawed logic in this union member’s argument on why the focus on the “opulent” benefits and pay scales of government workers is wrong on their opinion.

One point that Thurber makes is spot on. While it is true that many people are sick and tire of these union thugs ripping off the taxpayers, the unions are not the only entities at fault here.

Ohio Senator Brown: Card Check is Dead

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Hill newspaper has an interesting quote from Ohio Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown. He says the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), of the Card Check bill is a dead issue in the senate this year.

Senator Brown was being interviewed on WVIZ radio in Ohio when he was asked what he thought about the success of the EFCA in the Senate for the 112th Congressional session. “It’s not going to happen now,” the senator said.

If this is true then Big Labor should be extremely upset with President Obama and the Democrat leadership in congress. Will they take out their anger by withholding their enthusiastic support of Democrats in 2012?

One would think that this singular failure of the Democrats to get Big Labor’s most wished for legislation passed would be a deal breaker for labor. After all, labor has spent over $400 million in the last few years on getting Democrats elected and it seems that all that money went for no benefit to them. Labor’s loss of power has grown commensurately with its expenditure on Democrats, anyway.

Like old dogs that cant learn new tricks, though, it is likely that they will double down and try to pump more money than ever into the pockets of pliant Democrats. Like a beaten wife they keep coming back, it seems.

You see, if public employees lose their power then they will have no more money to give Democrats for their campaign coffers.

By far unions are the largest donors that Democrats have all up and down the line from local and state to federal. Unions spent over 50 million dollars on Barack Obama’s campaign back in 2008 and they spent another 50 million for the 2010 midterm elections.

Most specifically pubic employee unions are Democrats biggest supporters. In the last week of the 2010 election, for instance, the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) spent over a million dollars to help elect Democrats. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) spent almost $400,000.

Ohio’s Dem. Gov. Gave Stimulus $$ to Co. That Exported Jobs to El Salvador

Ohio’s Dem. Gov. Gave Stimulus $$ to Co. That Exported Jobs to El Salvador

-By Warner Todd Huston

What was it that Democrat President Barack Obama told us about the stimulus? Oh, yeah that it would “save or create” American jobs. Seems like a good idea, right? So what happened in Ohio when Democrat Governor Ted Strickland got his mitts on some of Obama’s stimulus cash? Why he gave it to a company to fund a call center that is operating out of El Salvador, Central America, of course.

Jobs for Americans? Heck no, jobs for El Salvadorans! And why? Because it was a good deal, you see?

Earlier this year Governor Strickland’s Department of Development awarded a $171,300 contract to a company named Parago. This company was hired by the state to operate a call center that Ohio residents can call to take advantage of a rebate program that the state set up so that Buckeyes could buy new household appliances and get a little sumpthin’ back.

Apparently everything was going wonderfully for most of this year until one Ohio resident happened to ask one of the El Salvadoran phone jockeys where the call center was at which they were taking the calls. When the Buckeye was told Central America, said resident became incensed that federal “stimulus” money was going to fund jobs in El Salvador instead of in the United States — like Obama promised it would.

Well, folks, this is bound to happen more and more as time rolls onward in this New Media world of ours. A blogger is in trouble with local Ohio officials who are trying to Shut him down using a badly applied campaign finance law all because he has been critical of county officials on his blog. That’s right, a county board is trying to silence the free political speech of a local Ohio blogger because he is critical of them.

The Geauga County Board of Elections has filed charges against the owner of the Geauga Constitutional Council blog, independent blogger Ed Corsi. The Board claims that Corsi’s pseudonymously published blog violates O.R.C. 3517.20(A)(2), a code meant to assure that political campaign publications, signs, and handouts have their source transparently identified.

The reason the Board is going after Corsi is because he publishes on his blog critical assessments and lists of local officials that he calls “R.I.N.O.S.” Board officials feel that because he does not affix his name to his blog posts he is violating the transparency rules.
