ELYRIA — A judge on Tuesday denied Oberlin College a new trial to once again defend itself in the case brought by the Gibson family and Gibson's Bakery over the college's behavior during student protests nearly three years ago. Lorain County Common Pleas Judge John Miraldi rejected not only a new trial, but also a request by the Gibsons that he award an additional $105,000 in interest on top of the already-awarded damages, according to court documents.

Notice how the headline characterizes this as Gibson’s case, when it was actually Oberlin’s attempt to reopen the case. Headline implies that it was bad news for Gibson.

Gibson's should press ahead and make Oberlin pay the entire judgment, right now, in cash.

The arrogance of the college is stunning. They could have settled for $15 million but chose to take their chances with the jury. Dumb move. If they appeal, they will probably have to post a bond. Unless the judge made some serious errors, the case is unlikely to be overturned. I would advise the college to pay up now and be done with it.

The top talent legal officer at Oberlin, spurred on by that Raimondo woman (who should have been muzzled), decided to go for broke. To play hardball. It’s over.

Hey Judge, FORCE Oberlin to pay within 1 week or suffer 15% interest increases per day! They will find the $$ really fast!

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed on Thursday morning that his own internal polls indicate that he will not win the September 17 election. In an interview with KAN Radio, Netanyahu lamented that too many voters who want him to be prime minister either will not vote or will vote for one of the Likud's satellite parties. He blamed Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit for preventing him from annexing the Jordan Valley, which he said he wanted to do before the election. Netanyahu said that if he did win the election, his first call to form a coalition would be to Yamina leader Ayelet Shaked.

A rear admiral in the Coast Guard who briefed President Trump on Hurricane Dorian is defending the commander in chief amid backlash for his claims that the storm might hit Alabama. In a statement disseminated by the White House on Thursday, homeland security and counterterrorism adviser Peter Brown argued the president was correct in addressing the "potential impact" on several states, including Alabama. "As the Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Advisor, I briefed President Donald J. Trump multiple times concerning the position, forecast, risks, and Federal Government preparations for and response to Hurricane Dorian," his statement read.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board (WSJ) recently suggested that the Obama administration pulled off “the biggest accounting fraud in history” with student loans when eliminating the role of private lenders in the federal student lending market. Experts who spoke with Yahoo Finance acknowledged the issue with the general policy in hindsight, though they disagreed on who exactly is to blame. In 2010, Democrats “nationalized the market to help pay for Obama Care,” WSJ asserted. “The Congressional Budget Office at the time forecast that eliminating private lenders would save taxpayers $58 billion over 10 years. This estimate was pure fantasy, and now we’re seeing how much.”

The majestic herds of wild horses that roam North Carolina's Outer Banks will likely ride out Hurricane Dorian's whipping winds and strong storm surge by huddling together with their "butts to the wind" - a stabilizing trick that's worked well for more than five centuries. "The wild horses are better equipped to handle a hurricane than most of us humans living on the Outer Banks," the Corolla Wild Horse Fund posted on its Facebook page. "They go to high ground under the sturdy live oak trees to ride the storm out. Remember, they've been doing this for 500 years."

RUSH: Look, you’ll tell you something else is happening out there, folks. I saw… Have you noted all the Republican members of Congress that are again retiring? I think one of the reasons we lost the House in 2018 is that there were a huge number of Republicans who retired. Now, we were told the reason was, “Well, they’re being term limited out of their committee chairmanships, Mr. Limbaugh, and they don’t want to go back to just being regular members of the House. What’s in it for them? Once you become a committee chairman, you can’t go back to being a regular bencher.”

Fake news and social media posts are such a threat to U.S. security that the Defense Department is launching a project to repel “large-scale, automated disinformation attacks,” as the top Republican in Congress blocks efforts to protect the integrity of elections. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency wants custom software that can unearth fakes hidden among more than 500,000 stories, photos, video and audio clips. If successful, the system after four years of trials may expand to detect malicious intent and prevent viral fake news from polarizing society.

ELYRIA — Citing errors in the six-week trial that led to a multimillion-dollar legal judgment in favor of Gibson's Bakery and the Gibson family, Oberlin College has asked a judge for a new trial to be held in the case. More than 540 pages of legal arguments and exhibits were filed Aug. 14 by Oberlin College attorneys asking Lorain County Common Pleas Judge John Miraldi to order a new trial. Attorneys for the Gibsons fired back with more than 125 pages of legal arguments and exhibits of their own Wednesday, asking Miraldi to strike down the college's request.

WASHINGTON – While all eyes are on who could be the future occupant of the White House, the battle over control in both chambers of Congress is also heating up, especially as more than a dozen lawmakers have announced their retirement. The retirements, most of which were announced by Republicans, open up a series of key races ahead of the 2020 elections as Republicans try to fend off Democrats aiming to take control of the Senate and maintain, or perhaps grow, their majority in the House. Here is the list of lawmakers who have announced they aren't running to keep their seats in 2020.

Early Monday morning, Donald Trump tweeted: “94% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a record. Thank you!” Where the president got this specific number remains a mystery. Recent polls by YouGov put his GOP approval roughly ten points lower, and Gallup, which has tracked Trump’s popularity since he took office, puts him at 88 percent. But I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that Trump used his Sharpie to round up his score. He’s deeply invested in being — or at least claiming to be — the most popular Republican president in history.

Ocasio-Cortez talked about her background as a waitress and told the moderator, Angela Rye, that she does not “shy away” from her background of working in restaurants because it prepared her for her current job as a congresswoman. “Nothing will give you the ferocity of advocacy like having that kind of experience,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Crooked Hillary mocked the US from abroad then taunted House Republicans over her email scandal. Hillary Clinton visited an art exhibit in Venice, Italy this week which displayed 60,000 pages of her ’emails’ she sent over her private server. The artist, Kenneth Goldsmith, printed up 60,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails that somehow managed to survive her BleachBit spree and called the exhibit, “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails.” According to The Hill, Hillary spent nearly an hour rifling through her emails at the exhibit, then posed for a picture.This wasn’t enough for Hillary — she

AUSTIN— Twenty-two Greenpeace USA activists created a blockade on the Fred Hartman Bridge in Baytown, Texas early Thursday ahead of the third Democratic primary debate in Houston. Eleven of those climbers are dangling over the side of the bridge, an activist said in a Facebook Live video. The climbers held colorful ribbons and streamers to block traffic under the bridge. The group aims to “shut down the largest oil export channel in the U.S.” for 24 hours. Law enforcement officials told the local NBC affiliate that Houston Ship Channel was temporarily closed down because the protesters threatened to lower themselves to stop ship traffic.

This is the time for President Trump to deprive his enemies of the last weapon that could be employed against him that could cause him any harm: the largely false, but still troublesome, issue of his personality and routine behavior. Other lines of attack have come to naught: Collusion with Russia, accusations of racism provoking outbursts of mass murder (by uttering “racially charged statements,” in the inadvertently Orwellian words of CNN’s most witless talking head, Don Lemon), the verbal recession confected by the world-renowned economists of CNN and MSNBC, all of it has collapsed.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg ought to crack open the Bible, turn to Psalm 139, and read how God formed humans “fearfully and wonderfully” — and after, take a second look at his views on abortion and repent, said his brother-in-law, Rhyan Glezman, an evangelical pastor from Michigan, on Fox News. Good advice. It is a curiosity how a self-declaring Christian can still stand strong on the side of abortion rights. This is what Buttigieg said a few days ago on a “Breakfast Club” radio interview: “Right now, [conservatives] hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion, which is obviously a tough issue

The Congressional Budget Office reported on Tuesday that, with one month to go, the federal deficit for fiscal year 2019 has already topped $1 trillion. As night follows day, Trump administration critics blamed the tax cuts. And once again, the data prove them wrong. The CBO report says that the federal deficit reached $1.067 by the end of August. That’s up $168 billion from the comparable period in fiscal year 2018. The deficit this year will be larger than the entire budget was in 1987. Where did the increase come from? Why, tax cuts, of course.
