  • Hardin County's right-to-work ordinance invalidated in federal court ruling

    A federal judge struck down Hardin County's [Kentucky] right-to-work ordinance in an order Wednesday, ruling that states, not counties, can exempt themselves from portions of the National Labor Relations Act. U.S. District Judge David Hale dismissed each of the county's arguments for its ordinance, which passed Hardin County Fiscal Court Jan. 13 and barred unions from collecting fees from non-members. "The NLRA preempts the right-to-work, hiring-hall, and dues-checkoff provisions of Hardin County Ordinance 300," Hale wrote in his order. "Section 14(b) is the only exception to NLRA preemption of the field of labor relations, and it does not extend to...

    Presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have held onto significant leads in the final days before the New Hampshire primary, according to the Saturday results of a Umass Lowell/7 News tracking poll. Trump’s biggest challenge comes from Senator Marco Rubio, whose post-Iowa surge seems to have stalled at 14 percent in the tracking poll’s latest results. Senator Ted Cruz follows in third, at 13 percent. He’s ahead of Ohio Gov. John Kasich (10 percent), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (10 percent), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (4 percent), Dr. Ben Carson (3 percent), and Carly Fiorina (3 percent).

    Now that Rand Paul is out of the race for the White House his father Ron Paul, who ran in 2008 and 2012, isn't impressed by Ted Cruz's attempts to pick up the "free market" libertarian banner. "You take a guy like Cruz, people are liking the Cruz - they think he's for the free market, and [in reality] he's owned by Goldman Sachs. I mean, he and Hillary have more in common than we would have with either Cruz or Trump or any of them so I just don't think there is much picking," Paul said of the Texas...

    Rand Paul's loss looks to be Ted Cruz's gain in New Hampshire. With polling averages in the low single digits, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul dropped out of the presidential primary on Wednesday morning. And analysis of recent polling data suggests his libertarian-leaning supporters will move toward Cruz, the brash U.S. senator from Texas. "Cruz has a libertarian streak as well," said Dante Scala, an associate professor of political science at University of New Hampshire. “His big concern is to build a bridge between...

    A top staffer for Sen. Rand Paul’s campaign said Wednesday that Donald Trump was a key reason for Paul’s failed presidential bid. Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul announced Wednesday morning that he was dropping out of the race for the White House after a poor performance at the Iowa Caucuses. Paul’s Chief Strategist Doug Stafford led a conference call with reporters Wednesday morning where he said Trump sucked the “oxygen out of the room,” making it nearly impossible for Paul to get his message out.

    I've knocked around Rand Paul quite a lot over the last year-plus, and I think most or all if it was well-deserved (I've also, it should be noted, praised him a few times as well, when he deserved it). But Paul's decision to drop out of the race today (before New Hampshire) in order to help unify the party to defeat Trump, shows that he, like Scott Walker, is a true Republican who believes in conservative principles, and for that he should be commended. See, there are two types of people who call themselves Republicans. The first are those who...

    After years of running up against unconstitutional federal education mandates imposed on states using bribes and bludgeoning from Washington, D.C., a group of parents and grassroots education activists from across America is launching a fresh effort to shut down the U.S. Department of Education once and for all. The mission: "Stop Fed Ed." In the crosshairs is everything from dumbed-down "standards" such as the Obama-backed Common Core nationalization of schooling and associated federal testing regimes, to the deeply controversial federal data gathering and data mining encouraged and financed largely by the feds. The group hopes to pressure Congress into ending...

    Cruz’s numbers here aren’t a shock — he’s been in the high teens and low twenties for awhile — but Trump hasn’t dipped as low as 25 percent in a national poll since November and Rubio hasn’t seen a number as high as 21 percent since … ever. That makes some righty poll-watchers nervous since PPP’s credibility has been attacked in the past. Not only are they liberal, they were the subject of a famous critique of their methodology by Nate Cohn in TNR a few years ago. If you’re looking to throw out this result, which no other...

    Can an authoritarian regime convert to democracy by itself? The historical record isn't encouraging. In the absence of a popular uprising, it is rare for tyrants to voluntarily retire. The military junta of Burma has promised to relinquish some power to an elected government, but it has not yet delivered. China's party-state shows no inclination to try. Russia's strongman is reversing what incipient democracy existed. This goes to the core of why President Obama's opening to Cuba seems to be failing to live up to its declared goals. When the end to a half-century of hostility was announced in December...

    HENNIKER, N.H. - For months, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) has tried to poach libertarian-leaning voters here away from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Now, with Paul's exit from the race, Cruz has even more of an opening to make inroads with supporters of the Kentucky Republican. Cruz is running as a tea-party darling and evangelical Christian, constituencies that helped propel him to victory in the Iowa caucuses. But he is also attempting to expand that base, particularly with libertarian-leaning supporters. Here in New Hampshire, Cruz speaks of limited government, gun rights and privacy. "But part of the reason we're more competitive...

The measure, which has widespread support from religious groups, now goes to Gov. Matt Bevin, who is expected to sign it into law.

She played video of Cruz saying he was in favor of passing immigration reform in 2013 if a pathway to citizenship was removed by way of an amendment he had proposed. Such reform would have still allowed for legalizing individuals who were in the U.S. illegally. "Was that all an act?" Kelly asked after playing multiple video clips of Cruz. "It was...

Gray, 62, told the Herald-Leader Monday night that he decided to challenge Paul last week and that he “absolutely” thinks he can win despite the state’s rightward lurch and widespread disapproval of President Barack Obama.

    There’s no way these media reports are accidental or not directly connected. And none of this looks the least bit good against the larger dynamic of the Syrian crisis and President Stompy Feet’s prior position on ISIS.

    At the end of Obama's second term, it is estimated the national debt will be 20 trillion dollars. Most of this money has gone to frivolous spending by the Federal government, as well as been stolen by various government officials, using the excuse that astronomical sums of money are missing. In the computer age, it would be impossible to lose a trillion dollars, unless it was purposely lost to cover the theft of it. In looking at the numbers, we find that most of the 20 trillion debt is accountable in lost funds. Since 9-11, the US has spent 6...

    FRANKFORT - Bills that would limit funding for Planned Parenthood and make selling fetal tissue illegal in Kentucky were sent to the Senate floor on Thursday.

Both bills came in response to controversial undercover videos "that clearly showed that Planned Parenthood abortion clinics were selling aborted fetal parts for...

    Blizzard warnings have been issued for the Baltimore and Washington D.C. metro areas, and blizzard watches extend northward to the Philadelphia and New York City metro areas as Winter Storm Jonas begins to take shape. The storm is expected to deliver heavy snowfall to at least 15 states, and heavy ice accumulations, strong winds and coastal flooding will add to the storm's impact as it carves a path from the nation's heartland through the South and onward to the East Coast now through Sunday. As of Thursday morning, just over 73 million people – or roughly one in every four...

    The nation's capital is now under a blizzard watch, the first watch of its kind issued in advance of Winter Storm Jonas. Now is the time to prepare for Winter Storm Jonas, which is expected to kick into high gear Friday and pummel parts of the East through the weekend with heavy accumulations of snow and ice. Strong winds will likely add to the threat of power outages and may also bring serious coastal flooding along parts of the Atlantic coast. The National Weather Service issued the blizzard watch late Wednesday morning for Washington, D.C., and nearby Baltimore. The watch...

    When Lindsey Graham began running for president last year, some analysts thought he was looking to knock out Rand Paul over foreign policy differences.

"I have no doubt that he would be an ideologue in the eyes of most Americans," Graham said of Cruz during an interview Fox News Radio's Kilmeade & Friends. "He's been the most disruptive influence in the senate, he hasn't passed anything meaningful."
