Stephen Chad Meredith: candidate for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.' But on June 24, the Supreme Court announced it was overturning Roe, and Meredith's nomination was never announced.

    The law prohibits abortions performed past 15 weeks and the dispensation of abortion pills by mail(LifeSiteNews) – The Kentucky legislature’s recent enactment of a pro-life omnibus law over the veto of Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear is already paying dividends in the form of a de facto cessation of abortion-on-demand in the Bluegrass State. Last week, the legislature overrode Beshear’s veto of HB 3, which prohibits abortions performed past 15 weeks and the dispensation of abortion pills by mail, as well as requires parental consent for minors’ abortions and humane burial or cremation of aborted babies. Beshear primarily cited the lack...

    Last week, Beshear vetoed Senate Bill 83, legislation that would restrict girls’ high school and college sports to only those students whose birth certificate registered them as female. ... With that veto, along with vetoes striking down bans on teaching critical race theory and abortions after 15-weeks, a governor who had previously kept his head down in our national culture wars jumped out of the left-wing foxhole with a fixed bayonet.

    Gov. Andy Beshear of Kentucky has vetoed a bill banning transgender athletes from competing in sex-segregated sporting events. Beshear, a Democrat, refused to sign the bill Wednesday after claiming it was most likely unconstitutional. Beshear claimed the legislation "discriminates against transgender people" and therefore would not hold up in court. The Republican-dominated state legislature can force the bill through with a majority vote in both houses, which is expected to happen next week.

    Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) said on Sunday that COVID-19 situation in the state is “dire,” with a record number of hospitalizations amid soaring cases. “We are setting case records. We have a record number of Kentuckians in the hospital battling COVID in the ICU, battling for their lives. We have a record number of families that are praying for their loved one who is on a ventilator, needing that assistance to breathe,” Beshear said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Beshear was dealt a blow last month when the Kentucky Supreme Court allowed several pieces of legislation limiting his COVID-19...

    Citing exponential growth of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across Kentucky, K-12 schools are now required to enforce universal masking among students and staff, Gov. Andy Beshear announced on Tuesday, as he reported 2,500 new cases — the most reported in a single day since early January. Beshear said he will sign an executive order Tuesday requiring all teachers, staff and students in K-12 schools, child care and pre-Kindergarten programs across Kentucky to wear a mask indoors. His executive order applies for 30 days and leaves open the indefinite possibility for renewal. “We are to the point where we cannot allow...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Flexing their political muscle, Republican lawmakers on Monday swept aside the Democratic governor’s vetoes of bills to change retirement benefits for new teachers and potentially shield legislative records from public scrutiny. Shortly after gaveling in after a nearly two-week break, the GOP-dominated legislature turned to sweeping aside a stack of vetoes by Gov. Andy Beshear. The override votes spanned hours, from early afternoon and continuing into the late night. Some of the overrides stripped away parts of the governor’s executive authority, shifting the power to statewide Republican officeholders. It continued a theme throughout the contentious legislative...

    A frustrated Gov. Andy Beshear said late Monday he will go to court if state lawmakers this week override his vetoes of legislation that limits his authority to issue and enforce emergency orders to limit the spread of COVID-19. His comment came after the top two legislative leaders — Senate President Robert Stivers and House Speaker David Osborne — sent him a one-page letter earlier in the day telling the Democratic governor that they plan to vote on his vetoes this week and can talk later with him. The two Republican leaders said that regardless of the outcome of the...

    Life is too short to live it in fear of dying.More than eight months after “15 days to flatten the curve,” our so-called medical experts, politicos, and pundits are bidding us to avoid our family at all costs over the holidays, lest we die. This Thanksgiving week, family separation is the name of the game, with governors and local authorities implementing onerous restrictions to discourage people from leaving their homes.“If you are planning to spend Thanksgiving with people outside your household, we urge you to reconsider,” wrote a group of governors in the pages of the Washington Post.

    Like thousands of other Kentuckians over the last few months, Travis Powell just wanted a simple answer from the state Office of Unemployment Insurance. Powell is not an unemployed worker; he’s vice president of the Council on Postsecondary Education, and he wanted to know what to tell state universities about how to handle unemployment claims from work-study students. On April 20, he was put in touch with Muncie McNamara, the executive director of the Office of Unemployment Insurance. According to emails obtained through an open records request, McNamara said he’d look into it. After a week went by with no...

    (LEX 18) — Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced on Thursday that a Scott Circuit Judge ordered Gov. Andy Beshear to cease issuing or enforcing executive orders related to COVID-19 unless the orders meet specific criteria for an emergency as outlined by state law. The Judge stated that, in order to issue and enforce executive orders related to COVID-19, the Governor must specify the state of emergency that requires the executive order, the location of the emergency, and the name of the local emergency management agency that has determined that the emergency is beyond its capabilities. “The Governor cannot issue broad,...

    A federal judge has ruled Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear went “too far” in limiting in-person protests at the Capitol during the coronavirus pandemic. U.S. District Judge Greg Van Tatenhove said Wednesday in a 24-page order that Beshear must amend his mass gatherings order to allow for in-person protests. Despite the order, several large gatherings have been held outside the Capitol in recent months, at least one of which Beshear attended himself. A large rally is planned Thursday outside the Capitol to call for police reforms and remember Breonna Taylor, a woman shot and killed in March by Louisville police as...

    Breonna Taylor was an award-winning EMT and model citizen. She loved her family and community, working at two hospitals as an essential worker during the pandemic. Nearly four months ago, a division of the Louisville Police Department performed an illegal, unannounced drug raid on her home. Not a single officer announced themselves before ramming down her door and firing 22 shots, shooting Breonna 8 times, killing her. Not only were the police at the WRONG HOUSE, but the man they were looking for had already been arrested earlier that day. 1. Charges must be filed immediately. The officers involved, specifically...

    After more than a week of protests against police brutality and racial injustice, Gov. Andy Beshear announced several actions Monday aimed at reducing racial inequality in Kentucky. The biggest promise by far was a pledge to make sure every black Kentuckian has health insurance. He also announced plans to provide anti-bias and other training for police officers and teachers “My commitment today is we’re going to begin an effort to cover 100 percent of our individuals in our black and african american communities,” Beshear said. “Everybody. We’re going to be putting dollars behind it, we’re going to have a multifaceted...

Andy Beshear missed a golden opportunity to demonstrate that he’s personally walking the COVID-19 walk as well as talking the talk concerning the need for Kentuckians to hunker down at home and the commonwealth to shut down its economy with the exception of what he deems “essential” services. Instead of responding immediately to an open-records request by the Bluegrass Institute related to determining whether the staff at Beshear’s own home abides by the same suffocating COVID-19 protocols he’s demanding from his fellow Kentuckians, the administration took 12 days to finally provide the information. Not only...

    At least 1,000 Kentuckians protested Saturday in Frankfort against Gov. Andy Beshear’s decision to allow abortions to continue while restricting church gatherings and small businesses. Kentucky Today reports protesters urged the governor to reopen the state and allow people to return to church and work. Like many Democrat governors, Beshear restricted church gatherings, small businesses, non-essential medical care and more to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and preserve medical supplies for life-saving medical care. However, the governor allowed an exception for elective abortions – after the state’s only abortion clinic donated to his campaign, something state Rep. Stan...
