  • ABC News ‘slaughter in Syria’ footage appears to come from a Kentucky gun range

    Are you distrustful of the coverage of what is happening now in northern Syria between the Kurds and the Turkish army? You have good reason to be. ABC aired supposedly shocking footage Monday morning purporting to be from the frontline battle between the Syrian Kurds and the invading Turks. The only problem is the footage appears to come from a nighttime demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky. After seeing a comment from Wojciech Pawelczyk, I began making some calls. As of this writing, it appears that this video is a hoax, and ABC has pulled...

    David Carr Attacks Street Preacher David Carr owns King of King’s radio network out of Somerset Ky. David attacked the street preachers who were trying to preach the truth. He publicly called Chris McComas of West Virginia voices a dumbbell and he said to Rich Penkoski of Warriors for Christ that he hopes he doesn’t preach because it doesn’t do anything. Apparently David wants to just stand there holding a sign while stepping aside to allow children to go into a bar to watch a drag show. David’s actions are a good example of why perverts and child predators are...

    On Friday’s episode of “The View,” Sen. Rand Paul sparred with Ana Navarro, a regular contributor to the show, about the nature of socialism in Venezuela. “You talk about Venezuela in your new book,” Navarro said, “I get a lot of political ads from the Republican Party. Donald Trump has tweeted this. Many have tweeted this. If you vote for Democrats, they will turn the United States into Venezuela. Do you think that’s a fair statement to make?”

Spectrum, born from the acquisition of Time Warner Cable by Charter Communications (Nasdaq: CHTR), is investing $1.7 million in upgrades to its Florence call center at 7906 Dixie Highway, which it plans to expand to 400 employees from its current 100 as the company shifts all of its residential telemarketing to the facility. "We know there's a good talent pool in Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati area," Spectrum spokesman Mike Hogan told me. Spectrum is...

    A conservative group notes polling data shows an eight-point swing in voters’ shift to incumbent GOP Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin from Democrat candidate Andy Beshear after they view ads highlighting Beshear’s support of biological men competing in women’s sports. The Campaign for American Principles (CAP) states: The ads are moving voters in an incredible way — the chart below represents over 2,000 respondents. The gray bar represents Bevin’s support among voters BEFORE seeing the ad and the blue bar is Bevin’s support from voters AFTER seeing the ad. For voters 45-54, Bevin sees an 8pt increase in support, 55-64 give...

    Kentucky Senator Rand Paul knocked fellow Republican senators who criticized President Trump's move to pull troops from northern Syria, calling them the "neocon war caucus." "A lot of people in your own party -- Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, Nikki Haley, and on and on and on — say this is a tragedy, it’s a bad move, it emboldens our enemies," Fox News host Neil Cavuto told Paul on "Your World with Neil Cavuto" Monday. "It sounded like you listed the neocon war caucus of the Senate," Paul responded, adding, "They always want to stay at war." Trump vigorously...

    Top Republicans in Congress -- including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell -- criticized President Donald Trump over his decision to remove US troops from northern Syria as Turkey plans a military offensive there. McConnell urged Trump to reverse his move, saying "a precipitous withdrawal of US forces from Syria would only benefit Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime."

    LEXINGTON, Ky. – Churchill Downs Inc. has reached an agreement to purchase Turfway Park in Northern Kentucky for $46 million, giving the company an additional foothold in a heavily populated area to expand its casino operations. The deal, which came together quickly over the past four weeks, was reached as Churchill was mounting a challenge to Turfway Park by submitting a dates application for the track’s winter dates. Under that proposal, Churchill had said that it would build an entirely new track and casino in the northern Kentucky-Cincinnati metro area if it was awarded the dates. If accepted by the...

    Yertle’s Quiet Effectiveness Poor old Mitch McConnell. The Senate Majority Leader is frequently accused of being part of the “Swamp.” Perhaps he is, but he has been superbly effective for the last four years, and almost nobody notices. Indeed, Yertle (as I affectionately call him) has been a one-man Senate wrecking crew against liberals. Yet he is constantly under fire, most recently from Rush Limbaugh who cited Yertle’s comment that if the House impeaches President Trump, the Senate must have a trial. Well, duh. That’s the Constitution fer ya! But I don’t think it means at all what it seems,...

GOP lawmakers are asserting the whistleblower did not have firsthand knowledge of the actions detailed in the complaint and question whether the person had a political agenda. “It doesn’t come from a person with personal knowledge. It’s like I heard these people say this, and now I’m reporting it. I think that is pretty bizarre,” said Sen. John...

    The Republican leadership issued a memo Saturday clarifying that the Senate must take action if the House of Representatives approves articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. The statement came in response to concerns that the Senate could simply refuse to hold a trial. “There is no way we could somehow bar the doors and prevent the managers from presenting the articles to the Senate,” stated the memo, which was obtained by HuffPost. “The rules of impeachment are clear on this point.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) also said as much in a March interview with NPR: “If it...

    Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said Friday that it's time for new leadership in the Senate after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., failed to bring a healthcare reform bill over the finish line. Brooks said on CNN that he hopes the Senate doesn't stop trying to pass a bill, but said if the Senate is done, the GOP should start looking for a new leader. "If they're gonna quit, well then, by golly, maybe they ought to start at the top with Mitch McConnell leaving his position, and letting somebody new, somebody bold, somebody conservative take the reins so that they...

    For Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the very notion that President Donald Trump could be deserving of impeachment seemed "laughable" After having read a summary of the July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that sparked House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into the president, McConnell said on Wednesday that it was "laughable to think this is anywhere close to an impeachable offense." "If this is the 'launching point' for House Democrats' impeachment process, they've already overplayed their hand," the Senate Majority Leader said.

    Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) demonstrated a shocking level of ignorance when she recently described having held an AR-15 (video below). "I don't know what else it takes but I don't believe we can stop at the door of the United States House,” Jackson Lee told reporters in the Capitol building. “I believe there will have to be an emergence of members of the House flooding the United States Senate for Senator McConnell to understand that these initiatives today, my gun storage bill, my bill that I've introduced dealing with the caliber weapon, I've held an...
  • California adds Iowa to 'travel ban' over refusal to fund gender transitions

    California announced last week that it has added Iowa to the list of states on its ever-expanding “travel ban” list because of that state’s new prohibition against funding gender-transition surgeries under Medicaid. The announcement by state Attorney General Xavier Becerra means that as of Oct. 4, California will no longer offer taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa for any public employee or student at a state-run university. Becerra’s authority came from a 2016 California law signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown that bars state-funded travel to other states that undercut LGBT rights. The blacklist already included Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma and...

    Paul, a strong gun-rights advocate, signaled his willingness to support something along the lines of "red flag" laws that allow guns to be removed from those who may be a danger to themselves and others. "I'm not opposed to sort of an emergency order for 48 hours and then you get a hearing in a court where you get the full due-process protections," he said in the interview. "It's the one thing that could fix a lot of stuff. I think most of these homicidal attackers ... are sending off signals to their family and community."
