General Soleimani was the commander of the elite Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Guards Corps. It is worth noting that the Deputy Commander of the Iraqi Defense Forces PMU militia was also killed in the attack. President Trump has designated...

    Former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin defended his pardon of a man found guilty of raping a 9-year-old child, saying the conviction was not based on physical evidence. Micah Schoettle was in the second year of a 23-year sentence when Bevin controversially pardoned him of rape, sodomy and other sexual crimes last week. "There was zero evidence," Bevin said during a 17-minute radio interview with talk show host Terry Meiners on Thursday, according to The Courier-Journal. He noted the girl's sister was in the room during the alleged incident and denied the sexual assaults occured. "Both their hymens were intact," he...

    All across the Commonwealth of Kentucky, people are lashing out at their former governor for his controversial pardons and commutations. Before leaving office, Matt Bevin issued more than 400 of them. Some, including the case of a convicted child rapist in Kenton County, have created a firestorm of anger. Discussions are underway among some lawmakers to determine if anything can be done about it.

    In his last days in office, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin pardoned some of Kentucky’s worst murderers. Among those he released from prison was a convicted killer whose brother was a big campaign donor. Such pardons will incite more crimes, because studies show that harsh penalties deter and prevent crime, especially murder.

    Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) has conceded defeat in last week's nail-biting election after a statewide recanvass of the vote did not show a significant change in the vote count. Bevin had asked Kentucky’s 120 counties to conduct a recanvass in the days after his narrow loss to Attorney General Andy Beshear (D). Beshear beat Bevin by just 5,189 votes, or about four-tenths of a percentage point, though Bevin brought up unsubstantiated allegations of voting irregularities. But he acknowledged at a press conference Thursday that the recanvass would not make a significant difference in the vote count. He said he...

    No doubt it wasn’t the best of nights for the Republican Party at the state level. In Virginia, the Democrats retook everything. For the first time in two decades, the Democratic Party will control all of Richmond—and a parade of horribles is tow follow. The trash politics of deep blue Maryland have spilled over. It’s the Battle Antietam, but in reverse and with a clear and decisive winner: the anti-American Left. If I could, I would flee to West Virginia or South Carolina. Right now, Virginia Republicans have to tolerate the deluge of hyper-left-wing trash is about to emanate from...

    President Trump’s reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, corrected the false notion that Gov. Matt Bevin’s defeat to Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear on Tuesday was somehow a referendum on President Trump. “President Trump’s rally helped five of six Kentucky Republicans win clear statewide victories, including Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron, who will be the first black A.G. in Kentucky history and the first Republican to hold the office since 1948,” read a Trump campaign statement. “The President just about dragged Gov. Matt Bevin across the finish line, helping him run stronger than expected in what turned into a very close race...

    If you were on social media last night, you probably saw a lot of folks on the left celebrating that Kentucky, a deep red state, “had turned blue” because of the razor-thin victory of Democrat Andy Beshear over incumbent Republican Matt Bevin. Let me just get it out of the way right now and tell you that Kentucky isn’t turning blue. The state hasn’t been “flipped” or whatever else they’re saying. We’ve seen this narrative before. When Democrat Doug Jones narrowly defeated Republican Roy Moore in the special election for Jeff Sessions’ vacant Senate seat in 2017, many on the...
  • Message from Kentucky: Strong candidates matter: Not even a mighty Trump endorsement is quite enough

    President Trump tried. And he warned Kentuckians at a huge rally a few days ago that the gubernatorial race was going to be viewed by all as a referendum on him.So the apparent loss of Republican Gov. Matt Bevin to Democrat Andy Beshear last night, is a stinger. A Trump endorsement is usually a surefire means of winning the election and it has been up until now for nearly all candidates in special elections, which is why so many candidates want them. Once Trump endorses, Republicans almost always win.  But apparently, not even a Trump endorsement was enough for Bevin, who had some popularity problems....

    If this were an NFL game, Joe Scarborough would be penalized 15 yards for taunting. On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough went on a sneering rant, claiming President Trump's rally in Kentucky caused the incumbent Republican governor, Matt Bevin, to lose. Scarborough repeatedly demeaned the president as "Donald," at one point calling him, "son." And wanting to be sure that President Trump took the full brunt of his attack, Scarborough gestured to the camera: "Donald, c'mere: get a little closer" [see screencap].

    After Governor Bevin said that Baptists should be “insulted” by Andy Beshear’s first campaign ad, due to Beshear’s stance on abortion, a group of faith leaders that included Baptist ministers called out the governor. In a press conference held in front of Douglas Boulevard Christian Church, a group of faith leaders across the religious spectrum spoke of their faith and of reproductive rights, and accused the governor of using abortion as a tool to divide Kentuckians, rather than bring them together. And, they emphasized the ability and the rights of women to make their own healthcare decisions, calling the shaming...

    Gov. Matt Bevin continued his crusade to focus the 2019 gubernatorial election on the issue of abortion rights Wednesday, releasing a video that accused Attorney General Andy Beshear, the Democratic nominee for governor, of insulting people of Baptist faith. The video was in response to Beshear’s first television ad of the general election, which featured Beshear talking about how his grandfather and great-grandfather were Baptist preachers and how their faith guided his principles. “I think it’s insulting to the Baptist tradition, I think it’s insulting to the people of Baptist faith to try and couch what his grandfather and great...

    Republican incumbent Gov. Matt Bevin refused to concede late Tuesday in Kentucky's gubernatorial race, citing "irregularities" -- potentially kickstarting weeks of uncertainty as the closely-watched contest with national implications remains too close to call. The history-making evening also saw Republicans decisively hold onto the governorship in Mississippi despite a fierce Democratic challenge, while Democrats took complete control over the Virginia statehouse for the first time in 26 years. On Monday, Trump had called on an "angry majority" of voters to boost the relatively unpopular Bevin in Kentucky, in a nod to Richard Nixon's "silent majority" and Ronald Reagan's "moral majority."...

    LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - WKYT's Dave Baker spoke with President Donald Trump ahead of his campaign rally in Lexington. President Trump spoke about his support for Kentucky Republicans Matt Bevin and Mitch McConnell along with a variety of other topics. He spoke about House Democrats' impeachment efforts over allegations that Trump called the Ukrainian president and threatened to withhold aid in order to get information that could be used against Joe Biden's presidential campaign. The President has denied the allegations, stating there was no quid pro quo, and he argues the impeachment efforts could help rally his voters to the...

    Voter backlash against the Democrat impeachment inquiry of President Trump and strong support for the president in Kentucky appear to be key factors helping Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in his re-election battle against Democrat challenger Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear. Bevin, first elected governor in November 2015, is seeking a second four-year term as governor and faces Beshear in a November 5 general election. A poll released by Maxon-Dixon Polling & Strategy on Wednesday shows that Bevin has pulled into a tie with Beshear, a significant improvement from the eight point deficit he had in the race as measured in...
