    FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Tuesday's State Board of Elections meeting started off as normal, but it ended with arguing, screaming, cursing and people storming out after the meeting. The fighting continued as LEX 18's Political Reporter Karolina Buczek stood in the hallway, waiting for an interview after the meeting. You can hear Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes yelling in a room, as Executive Director of State Board of Elections Jared Dearing told our crew, "it's a circus and chaos." Then Grimes walked out, letting LEX 18 know she would be available for an interview outside. ... That's when...

    I dont believe there has been one recent war that CNN and other major media outlets have not supported. They supported the War in Iraq, supported Obama bombing Libya and Yemen, and desperately want us to stay in Syria. The media supported the disastrous Arab Spring under Obama as well. They are willing to smear a Democrat of their own, Tulsi Gabbard, by evoking the Russian spy boogeyman and in a one two punch Pelosi did practically the same thing bringing up Putin concerning Trump. No war is too small that Trump will not be attacked over. Many media (I...
  • What Drove Pelosi's attack on Trump: TDS Virtue Signaling, Or A Desire For Regime Change In Syria?

    Vanity. Concerning Pelosi's attack on Trump, what drove her to say that with Trump all roads lead to Putin? Virtue Signaling over the Kurds? Does she want to use U.S. troops as human shields in Syria on some misguided goal borne about by virtue signaling that Putin must be brought up to keep us in there? TDS? Does she have TDS so bad that we saw her engage in another round of accusations, this time bordering on Russian Collusion 1,059.0? Or is she indeed just itching for regime change in Syria so bad that she would actually stoop this low?

    "I think it is important for us to send a signal that we are not hellbent on regime change,” presidential candidate Barack Obama said in 2007. He was talking about Iran but citing former President George W. Bush’s disastrous precedent of ousting Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Obama defined his candidacy in opposition to that 2003 regime change war and eventually became president. Times have changed. Most Democrats in Tuesday night’s CNN/New York Times presidential debate blasted President Trump’s decision to withdraw American troops from northern Syria and said they believe his decision endangers the Kurds. But only one candidate said...

    Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a new law that will allow voters to register on election day at any polling place in the state. According to the Governor, “this will overcome some serious deficiencies that previously held the number of ballots cast below what could’ve been achieved.” Among the deficiencies cited by the Governor were “the disenfranchisement of procrastinators. Why should people who can’t plan ahead be barred from voting? Under this law, anyone can wait until the final hour and still be allowed to vote. Another defect of previous law was its failure to adequately allow for enthusiastic voters...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden told Iowa Radio he would not pardon President Donald Trump if the president is impeached and removed from office. He was making a clear reference to President Gerald Ford pardoning President Richard Nixon once Nixon was impeached. The pardon kept Nixon from being prosecuted for his role in the Watergate scandal. “It wouldn’t unite the country,” Biden said about a potential pardon. “You’d say: ‘Wait a minute. I get a parking ticket and I’ve got to pay it. This happens to me and I’ve got to go to jail. This guy does all these things...

    The New York Post ^ | 10/12/2019 | Mary Kay Linge
    The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republicans and Independents, The Post has found. The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of impeachment and removal from office, while 40% did not want him impeached. Princeton New Jersey pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican, and 38% Independent, according to Gallup. A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it,...

    The Republican Party is set to win a large majority of all future close presidential elections, even contests in which they lose the popular vote, according to a recent study. GOP candidates for president can expect to be victorious in 65 percent of future presidential elections and University of Texas at Austin researchers analyzed why "inversions" — where the popular vote winner loses the overall election — has happened twice since 2000. The study authors found that the Electoral College's winner-take-all approach favors Republicans and has pushed them to victories in 2000 and 2016. The researchers concluded that inversions will...

    Donald Trump may be the only candidate in U.S. history who could shrink the size of the federal government simply by swearing in as commander in chief. A poll of federal employees conducted by Government Business Council Jan. 20-26 found that a Trump victory may result in roughly 25 percent of the government's workforce quitting.

    It’s the media’s job to investigate and report the truth about important people and events — at least, it used to be. These days, it seems that following facts no matter where they lead has been replaced by progressive pandering. It’s hard to come to any other conclusion, especially after a jaw-dropping piece published by CNN on Wednesday. The left-leaning news network has essentially declared that questioning an unlikely story told by a female presidential candidate is sexist. Forget fact-checking and holding powerful people accountable; if a politician is the correct gender, they apparently get special treatment. “Warren pregnancy debate...

    The front-running Democratic Presidential candidate who is pro-abortion up until the first breath sang a rendition of "Jesus Loves the Little Children" at CNN's LGBTQ Town Hall in Los Angeles on Thursday. Elizabeth Warren sang the song in defense of gay marriage. She did not apply the song or its lyrics to unborn children who are slaughtered relentlessly by Democrat-protected abortuaries and whose blood money fuels her campaign. The church I grew up in, the first song I remember singing, "Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus Loves the little children of the world."...

    Republicans at President Donald Trump's rally in Minneapolis on Thursday will reportedly be escorted by a typically heavily armed group that has been called "one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today." That is how the Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Oath Keepers, who refer to themselves as "guardians of the republic." On the group's website, it describes itself as a "non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to 'defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'" The Oath...

    The Trump campaign rally in Minneapolis on Thursday marks the beginning of the presidential re-election campaign’s intense efforts to win the state of Minnesota in 2020. “It is a full-on major effort state campaign,” Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh told the New York Times in a story published early Thursday morning. President Trump narrowly lost the state’s ten electoral college votes by about 44,000 votes in 2016, the best Republican showing in Minnesota since President Richard Nixon won the state in the 1972 presidential election. The Times reported in its Thursday story: Brad Parscale, the president’s campaign manager, is planning...

    The Anger of the Blinded Cyclops By now, knowledge of the persons and timeline involved in the Russia Hoax (to choose Gregg Jarrett’s phrase among many others) has seeped into the public’s admittedly shallow consciousness. Although they are at opposite poles of seriousness, the Russia Hoax is similar in some ways to the cast and events of The Bachelor. We don’t necessarily want or care to know who the Bachelor is and who he’s chosen but the PR engine, aided and abetted by a bored, cynical media, blasts the news far and wide until it’s nearly impossible not to know....
