    Growing outcry over the police killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black emergency-room technician, in her Louisville, Ky., home is stoking calls to end the use of no-knock warrants like the one officers secured to raid her apartment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation said on Thursday it was opening an investigation into Ms. Taylor’s death. The same day the Louisville police chief, Steve Conrad, said he would retire. Earlier this month Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear urged state and federal investigators to review the Louisville Metro Police Department’s internal investigation of the shooting. U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and U.S. Rep. Thomas...

  • Rand Paul: We have 700,000 people out of work in KY thanks to 'Socialist' Gov. Beshear

    Sen. Paul spoke with the 13 News from his Washington D.C. office Thursday. "He shut down the economy and he's not being very open about letting us get back to work. So, the 700,000 people out of work should call Gov. Beshear and say 'Thanks a lot, but we don't want to continue to be out of work, you've got to let us get back to work.' It is a mistake to let one person run the economy. It is what we always objected to in the Soviet Union and what we objected to as socialism or what is called...

    A Kentucky convenience store told customers to take off their face masks or “go somewhere else” — but later did an about-face when called out for the controversial message. A photo of the sign outside Alvin’s in Manchester was shared Monday on Facebook by a man who said he wanted to “spread their shame” by publicizing the business’ call to flout Gov. Andy Beshear’s mask guidance, intended to curb the spread of the coronavirus, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports. “No face masks allowed in store,” the pink sign read. “Lower your mask or go somewhere else! Stop listening to Beshear. He’s...
  • Reprobate Democrats and backstabbing Republicans Exclusive: Mychal Massie rips Mitch McConnell for not bringing Obama, Clinton et al. to account

    It's hard to find a lower species of life form today than Democrats holding political office. However, backstabbing, duplicitous Republicans will challenge the most reprobate Democrat any day of the week – and twice on Sunday when they're pretending to be the pious – for the title of "America's most undesirable." Democratic politicians are pernicious liars and godless mercenaries of Satan, but Republicans are no less pernicious and godless, in addition to being nauseatingly craven. It's not the Democrats who have sold patriots down the river; it's the plexus of contumacious Republicans who promise time after time to defend the...
  • Federal Judge Overrules North Carolina Governor’s Restrictions On Worship

    A federal judge overturned North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s orders Saturday that sought to cap religious services at no more than 10 people while businesses and other organizations in the state were left to accommodate up to 50. The double standard, District Court Judge James C. Dever ruled in the Eastern District of North Carolina, was an overt show of distrust among those gathering to worship and deemed the directive illegal, according to the News and Observer. “The record, at this admittedly early stage of the case, reveals that the Governor appears to trust citizens to perform non-religious activities...

In his Friday injunction, District Judge Hale ruled: “The Governor and other Commonwealth officials are ENJOINED from enforcing the ban on mass gatherings as to in- person services at Maryville Baptist Church so long as...

    Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina is stepping aside as chairman of the influential Senate Intelligence Committee while he's under investigation for stock trades he made ahead of the market downturn sparked by the coronavirus pandemic. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement Thursday that Burr "contacted me this morning to inform me of his decision to step aside as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee during the pendency of the investigation." He said Burr's resignation as chairman will be effective at the end of the day on Friday.

    On Monday, McConnell did an interview with Team Trump Online about recent remarks made by Obama on Trump's response to the coronavirus. McConnell said that he believed Obama should have "kept his mouth shut" rather than criticizing Trump. In response, former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele trashed McConnell for condemning Obama. "I'm sure Mitch is aware that a grown ass black man who happens to be a former president has agency to speak his mind on how his successor is managing this crisis, especially since his successor has yet to keep 'his mouth shut' about him," Steele tweeted.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Gov. 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...

    The Senate failed Thursday to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a bill that would curb his ability to take military action against Iran. The Senate came up short of the two-thirds majority, and it voted 49-44, with seven GOP senators joining Democrats. Seven Republicans broke with Trump: Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Todd Young of Indiana, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) joined Democrats in February to pass the bill, but he did not vote Thursday. Trump on Wednesday night,...

    WASHINGTON — States left cash-strapped by the coronavirus crisis shouldn’t count on federal bailouts — especially those run by Democrats, President Trump told The Post on Monday. During a sit-down in the Oval Office, Trump echoed recent remarks by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who last month refused to open federal coffers for “blue state” governments — including New York’s — that have been hit hard by the pandemic. “I think Congress is inclined to do a lot of things but I don’t think they’re inclined to do bailouts. A bailout is different than, you know, reimbursing for the plague,”...

    Despite the ongoing crisis, our U.S. Senators left D.C. to go home. They haven’t been able to get much accomplished for the American people remotely. But are they still getting paid? You better believe it. With some states reopening, McConnell had the reasonable plan to reopen the Senate. But one long-term Democrat is demanding to extend her paid vacation. From The Hill: Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to cancel his plan to bring the Senate back to Washington, D.C., on Monday, saying the House did the “right thing” by deciding not to return...
