COLUMBUS — Dr. Amy Acton, the former state health director who became the face of Ohio's early pandemic response, has stepped down from her nonprofit position to “carefully explore” running as a Democrat for the U.S. Senate, she said Thursday. Acton would be vying for a coveted open seat being vacated by Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, who cited divisive national politics in a decision not to seek reelection next year after twice comfortably winning the seat by double-digit margins.(Snip)Acton’s political experience is limited, and involves volunteering for former President Barack Obama’s 2008 Democratic primary campaign in Ohio.

FTA: Acton's leadership working with Republican Gov. Mike DeWine in the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic made her something of a folk hero and role model for Ohio girls. She also faced intense backlash over the restrictive health orders she signed, including having armed protesters show up outside her suburban home, and resigned in June. But Democratic insiders say she polls well as a possible statewide contender. ~~~ Acton is viewed as a potentially strong fundraiser in a race against an expected well-funded Republican candidate.

Why bother with the pretense of running? Just take a leaf from Creepy Ole Joe and have her cronies gin up some Chinese ballots and presto! She’s a senator!

She’s a folk legend all right. But not with little girls. The adults in Ohio wondered how come dr action was so revered by the little governor. No one could figure out how come he had so much faith in a pediatric dr instead of a dr who studied contagious illnesses

She's extremely unpopular in Ohio. I hope she runs and wins the Democrat nomination. That will make it easy for the Republican candidate to win the seat.

The emptiest of the empty suits. For anyone with critical thinking skills, it was TORTURE listening to her daily press briefings with accompanying charts and graphs (that she appeared to have cut & pasted with NO understanding of what they illustrated). The strangest part, for me, of DeWine appointing her to the post originally was her STRIDENT pro-abortion stance and past activism. He's generally extremely pro-life, so something didn't pass the smell test with Acton. But our world is all media and mirrors now -- misperceptions become truths for the low-infos and the next thing you know, poof! We have another vapid politician in office.

To expand on the awakening….and based on a recent call for clarity… here are some brutally obvious points about DC that connect through the stop-Trump operation commonly known as “spygate”. Robert Mueller had two goals as special counsel. Goal #1 was to continue the fraudulent DOJ/FBI “Stop Trump” operation initiated by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and their crew technically named Crossfire Hurricane. Goal #2 was to bury the illegal action; to create the cover-up needed for everything that took place in the “Stop Trump” operation. It is the second goal that most people never reconciled;(Snip)that second goal that’s the most important.

In total, a family could receive up to $4,200 per child under the age of six, and $3,000 per child older than six but younger than 17-years-old, every year. Payments could also start up to four months before a baby’s due date, according to his office.

Dr. Anthony Fauci may be a saintly figure within media circles, but most of us recognized his game within a month or two of the pandemic starting. Claiming expertise does not in fact make someone an expert, as Never Trumper Tom Nichols so aptly illustrates, and Fauci has quickly fallen into that category. The good doctor’s claims shift on a dime, moving from each side of an issue with no accountability for ever being wrong. The commonality in everything he does just so happens to be politics.Take this latest contradiction, which happened over just a five-day period.

When I look at the last four years and how our country seemed to get more divided than any time since the Civil War, it's easy to conclude that President Trump is the reason it occurred. From the moment he declared war on the corruption in D.C., he became a target of all those entrenched power brokers who have been able to hide their venal activities from an unsuspecting public. Trump became the loudest whistleblower in history when he talked about draining the swamp that had been operating like an organized crime family for generations.
