    NASHVILLE, TENN — President Donald Trump is returning to the road, rallying supporters to recapture the enthusiasm of his campaign and reassuring them about his tumultuous early days in the White House. It's a welcome distraction for a president whose first months in office have been dominated by self-inflicted controversy and roadblocks, courtesy of federal courts and a divided Congress. "We have done far more, I think maybe more than anybody's done in this office in 50 days, that I can tell you,'' Trump said to cheers from thousands of supporters at a campaign rally in Nashville, Tennessee....

    Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who in 2015 spent six days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples due to her religious beliefs, will not have to pay $231,000 in court fees, a federal judge has ruled. U. S. Magistrate Judge Edward Atkins denied the plaintiffs' demand in Miller v. Davis that Davis pay the ACLU $231,000 because the plaintiffs didn't win their case against Davis, Liberty Counsel reported. Their were three cases against Davis, all of which were dismissed as moot on April 19, 2016, after the Kentucky legislature passed a law providing Davis, and...

    SB 7 is the Constitutional/Permitless carry bill in the Kentucky legislature for 2017.  It was moved to the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, & Public Protection committee.  The NRA-ILA is reporting that the bill has been removed from Senate consideration.  Unfortunately, the constitutional/permitless carry legislation, Senate Bill 7, has been pulled from consideration in the Kentucky Senate. SB 7, as with all modern Constitutional carry bills, leaves the permit system in place.  People who value the permit for state to state reciprocity, or as an alternate to NICS checks, will be able to use it for those purposes.

She acknowledged and corrected her mistake Friday morning on Twitter. (snip) Ms. Conway did not specify whether she meant an attack in Kentucky, Ohio or Downtown Manhattan, for that matter. But the closest circumstance to what she described occurred in Bowling Green, Ky., in late May 2011.

    Around 350,000 Kentuckians have completed firearms safety courses and passed background checks to legally carry a concealed weapon in the last 20 years. Now the state Senate is poised to gut the training, background checks and licensing requirements. Senate Bill 7 also would lower the legal age for carrying a concealed firearm in Kentucky from 21 to 18. Why, you may wonder, when gunshot victims seem to be getting younger and younger, would responsible lawmakers send a message that it’s OK for anyone lacking firearms training to carry a hidden gun in public? It’s a good question. The answer is...

    A Kentucky abortion facility caught masquerading as a doctor’s office will close permanently on Jan. 27, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports. In the spring of 2016, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin’s administration filed a lawsuit accusing the EMW Women’s Clinic in Lexington of illegally operating an abortion clinic disguised as a doctor’s office. Bevin’s administration asked a court for permission to close the practice, saying it was not licensed as an abortion facility. State health investigators also found unsanitary conditions inside the facility, according to the Courier Journal. The state Supreme Court sided with the governor in August. It has not been...

Besides, Hart says, he had the same plate for a dozen years when he lived in Ohio, without causing any problems.

    On Thursday evening, President-elect Donald Trump tweeted that he received a call from Ford chairman Bill Ford indicating that the automaker had chosen not to move an entire plant from Kentucky to Mexico. As many reports rightly indicated, that’s not entirely true. Ford never intended to close and move its Louisville Assembly Plant — to which Trump is referring — to Mexico. The plant currently employs a little more than 4,700 workers. The Detroit-based automaker was only considering moving its Lincoln MKC production — only one of the vehicles manufactured at that plant — to its factory in Cuautitlan, Mexico,...

Elliott County was formed in 1869, and since its first presidential election, in 1872, it had voted for the Democratic nominee every time — the longest span of any U.S. county. President Obama — like the previous Democratic candidates for president — won Elliott County in 2012, extending its streak. But the margin by which he won — 2.5 percentage points — made it, by far, the closest presidential election the county had ever seen, and the first time...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky’s Republican governor said blood might be shed if Democrat Hillary Clinton is elected president. Speaking to the annual Values Voter Summit on Saturday in Washington, Bevin said he was asked if the country could ever recover if Clinton were elected president. “I do think it would be possible, but at what price? At what price? The roots of the tree of liberty are watered by what? The blood, of who? The tyrants to be sure, but who else. The patriots,” Bevin said, referencing a quote from Thomas Jefferson....

    Many Judeo-Christian leaders speak out against abortion, but the few who advocate for abortion often are the ones who get the most media attention. On Monday in Kentucky, pro-abortion clergy held a rally at the State Capitol to advocate for abortion and other issues, the State-Journal reports. The event was called the Higher Ground Moral Day of Action, and it was held in conjunction with other rallies nation-wide. Led by clergy, the event highlighted the upcoming election and called on candidates and elected officials to uphold “the most sacred moral principles of our faith and constitutional values.” These included “the...

    Little scant coverage has been given to the story of doctor Mark Samir Sawaf. He was a LPCC Psychotherapist in Kentucky USA. This was his public image. His private life was more sinister than you can imagine. What the media is not telling you about this case was that Sawaf was a Muslim and a terrorist before he was gunned down in Kentucky for an alleged crime. Samir Sawaf set up IED’s and pipe bombs in Kentucky, USA. While his story gained local coverage in Kentucky, the reason is that the media forgot to tell the public that the family...

    In the year 2042, something potentially significant to Central Florida motorists could happen. The Central Florida Expressway Authority, which operates 109 miles of toll roads in Orange County, will have paid off its $4.3 billion in bonds. But when the roads are paid for, what happens to the tolls? Many drivers would love to see them disappear. "That would be a big break for a lot of people," said Steven Dewdney, an Orlando resident. But because Central Florida has growing transportation needs and will need to build more roads and support commuter rail, removing tolls are unlikely, experts say. The...

    While some polls after the Republican and Democratic conventions show Donald Trump tied with Hillary Clinton, internet retailer CafePress claims it can accurately track the electorate’s mood with its large consumer base — and customers appear to be decidedly anti-Hillary. Anti-Hillary merchandise outsells anti-Trump merchandise by a staggering 814.88 percent, according to the Louisville Business First. (Both the site and CafePress are based in Louisville, Kentucky.) Anti-Hillary gear also outsells pro-Trump products. Given that Trump supporters are chased, beaten, and intimidated for showing their support in public, the pro-Trump sentiment could be suppressed. Sales in 2016 are 50 percent higher...

    Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes hit the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton in Ohio on Friday, the second battleground state she’s visited in recent weeks. ... Grimes has also been a Clinton campaign surrogate in Iowa, speaking on behalf of the Democratic presidential nominee at the state’s annual Wing Ding dinner on Aug. 12. Clinton holds a wider polling margin in Ohio, where she leads Trump by nearly 5 points in a head-to-head with GOP nominee Donald Trump and by 4 percent in a four-way with Libertarian and Green Party candidates included, according to Real Clear Politics’ average...

    <p>What started as a travel story for the Chicago Tribune has morphed into one of the biggest fast food recipe reveals: the original recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken. The story of the how the recipe was (literally) placed into a reporter's hands started simply enough. A reporter travelled to the Harland Sanders Cafe and Museum and met with Joe Ledington, the nephew of Harland David Sanders (AKA Colonel Sanders).</p>

    Ledington, 67, says he used to blend the spices that went into his uncle's world-famous fried chicken, and the recipe in question is the real deal... How was it? Well, really good. In fact, tasters agreed the test kitchen fried chicken was even better than the Colonel's. But more important, did it taste like the Colonel’s secret blend of herbs and spices? It came very close, yet something was still missing. That’s when a reporter grabbed a small container of the MSG flavor-enhancer Accent (how did that get in the test kitchen?) and sprinkled it on a piece of the...

    My wife and I are considering a move. Here's why: We were both raised in CT. We've lived in other places, but in our 20s. During that time we chose our spot because of things like skiing and close proximity to race tracks and stuff. You know... young people stuff. We met in CT and got married there. We left CT to move "Back to America". We're both heavy republican and we're becoming somewhat isolationist. We moved to PA to be close to family, and still (officially) out of the NE. We really, really really do not like government telling...
