Trump supporting write-in candidate declares herself governor of Ohio after discussing plot to kidnap Mike DeWine | The Independent

A woman who ran as a write-in candidate against Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has unlawfully declared herself governor of the state and been implicated in a plot to kidnap and prosecute Mr DeWine.

Renea Turner, who ran against Mr DeWine as a write-in candidate in 2018, posted a video to her Facebook on Thursday in which she places her hand on a Bible and proclaims herself the governor of Ohio.

“Ohio is free from Tyrannous leadership,” she wrote in a Facebook post following the stunt.

The day after she posted the video, Ms Turner met with an individual who claims she pitched them a plot to place Gov. DeWine under house arrest.  

The Ohio Capital Journal was the first to report on the plot.

According to the individual – who asked local media not to identify them over fears of retribution – Ms Turner told them that they would kidnap Mr DeWine, try him for several alleged crimes, and then sentence him to exile or execution.

According to the whistleblower, the plot against Mr DeWine was a response to the governor’s coronavirus mandates.

Putin Leaves Trump Hanging and Says There’s Nothing Criminal About Hunter Biden and Ukraine

In an intriguing comment that could be interpreted as the Russian president trying to offer an olive branch to Joe Biden days out from the election, Putin said he didn’t see “anything criminal” about Hunter’s dealings with Ukraine. Trump has desperately been trying to link Joe and Hunter Biden with unproven allegations of corrupt business practices in the country, which Joe Biden has dismissed as being part of a Russian disinformation campaign. Asked about the allegations Sunday, Putin said: “[Hunter Biden] had at least one company, which he practically headed up, and judging from everything he made good money. I don’t see anything criminal about this, at least we don’t know anything about this.” Source: Putin Leaves Trump Hanging and Says There’s Nothing Criminal About Hunter Biden and Ukraine

Trump Official Resigns Over Executive Order ‘Smokescreen’ That Asks for ‘Political Loyalty’ From Advisers

Ronald Sanders, chairman of the Federal Salary Council (FSC), formally resigned from his position Monday, citing objections to an executive order issued by President Donald Trump last week. The order calls for the removal of firing protections usually afforded to certain federal employees.

In a letter confirming his departure, Sanders described the executive order, purportedly about holding federal employees more accountable, as a “smokescreen,” veiling Trump’s true intentions to expand control over federal workers through altered employment protections. He addressed the letter to John McEntee, director of the White House’s presidential personnel office.

“There is some irony in this,” Sanders wrote. “On its surface, the president’s Executive Order purports to serve a legitimate and laudable purpose…that is, to hold career Federal employees ‘more accountable’ for their performance. That is something that I have spent most of my professional life—almost four decades in Federal service (over 20 as a member of the Senior Executive Service)—trying to do.”

Black Americans are fired up and flocking to the polls – CNNPolitics

“This election is more important than the 2008 one for Barack Obama. That 2008 one was for change and making history. This election is for saving the US,” Richards said, citing concerns about racial justice and suppression of Black voters. “The racial divide that is going on, we need someone who is going to be a leader for everyone, not just their base.”
Across the country, Black voters are turning out in huge numbers. The stakes this year are especially high, they say, and nothing less than their health and safety is on the ballot.
