    Louisville fired head coach Bobby Petrino on Sunday, the school annonced. The Cardinals are 2–8 in 2018, losing 54-23 to Syracuse on Friday. Petrino's buyout is "estimated to be in the $14 million range" per Forde. "We want to thank Bobby for guiding our football program to some of the better seasons we have had historically at UofL," Vince Tyra, Lousiville's vice president and director of athletics, said in a statement. "However, at this time we feel the program needs different leadership and we owe it to our student-athletes and fans to turn this around."

    Berea, Kentucky is located about 30 minutes south of Lexington. In other words, it’s smack dab in the middle of the state, nestled amongst hills and horse farms. The landscape is beautiful and rolling and the town itself is heavily artistic, with a big Artisan Center and dozens of art events every year. It doesn’t seem like a hotbed of pro-abortion activity… but look a bit closer on October 28th and you’d see that Planned Parenthood snuck their way into a local church to have a meeting about abortion. Luckily, the Pro-Life Gen came out in full force. Carter Heller...

    Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who received international attention for denying gay couples marriage licenses, lost her re-election bid Tuesday, according to local reports. Davis, a Republican, was about 700 votes behind her Democratic opponent, Elwood Caudill Jr., in her bid for a second term as Rowan County clerk. In the Democratic primary, Caudill beat David Ermold, the man whom Davis had refused to grant a same-sex marriage license, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported. Caudill, Rowan County's chief deputy property valuation administrator, had unsuccessfully challenged Davis in 2014 in the Republican primary. Davis switched party allegiances in 2015. “I want...

    On Tuesday, CNN, the cable outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news, used a map in which Kentucky and Indiana were both mislabeled. And no one at the network seemed to notice. “Let’s take first a look at the six o’clock hour right now when polls will be closing in Kentucky and Indiana,” said CNN Senior Political Analyst Mark Preston. “Of course, we’re looking at a very important race in Kentucky where, uh, it has to do, uh, with the House of Representatives and of course in Indiana, we have a Senate race that is very much, uh,...

    Time are EST You could be in for a long wait to know the results of the midterm elections and which party ends up controlling the House and Senate. But polling places close earlier in some states than others — and they could provide a hint of things to come as the night progresses. 6 p.m. Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District: President Trump won this district near Lexington by 15 points. Democrats are fielding retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath against three-term incumbent Andy Barr. The race is rated as a toss-up. A Democratic victory could be an early sign of...

    An exhaustive investigation into the 11th hour sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh concluded that there was “no evidence” to back up any of the accusations. Moreover, the bombshell 414-page report by the Senate Judiciary Committee said that accuser Julie Swetnick and her “Creepy Porn Lawyer” Michael Avenatti criminally conspired to lie to Congress. “Following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh,” according to the report. Investigators interviewed 45 people and reviewed the evidence provided...

    ... I run an exit polling survey project in Boyle County, Kentucky as part of a regular community-based learning component of our political science courses at Centre College. Our students have surveyed over 1,000 randomly-selected voters on their way out of the voting booths in every fall election since 2011. To examine these competing theories, I compared the results of the exit polls with the actual results in Boyle County in each of these recent elections. Central Kentucky is an especially appropriate place to test for such an effect given that the economic and demographic characteristics are favorable to a...

    President Trump (and Kellyanne Conway)has put together a very powerful coalition of minorities, blue collar workers, union workers, suburban voters (in spite of what the MSM keeps telling us), law enforcement and active military and vets and pretty much anywhere outside of the left wing blue areas. I can’t say enough about how great he and his family and his inner circle are and how hard they have worked to make this happen; under terrible and sometimes dangerous conditions. BTW..looks like his whole gang are rock stars out in the real USA! Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Sanders and Ivanka Trump are...

    As we previously reported, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell was dining at Havana Rumba with his wife, Elaine Chao, in Louisville, Kentucky, last week when a group of angry liberals began to verbally harass him. One man began to pound on McConnell's table, then proceeded to throw his bag of leftovers out the front door of the building. The video below actually shows the attack on McConnell and his wife, but if you watch until the end, you can see a man wearing a camouflage hat defending the Republican Senator against his attacker. "Oh yeah, why don't you get out of...

    CNN political reporter Daniella Diaz sent a tweet on Monday pointing out that President Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell locked hands while walking up stairs at the White House following their Rose Garden press conference. Diaz seemed to be mocking the Republican duo – but while followers quickly pointed out that the Kentucky senator is a polio survivor, the tweet remains on her feed nearly 24 hours later. “That hand-lock between Trump and McConnell, though,” Diaz wrote with video of the incident.

    Friends and family of a beloved Medieval knight re-enactor have been left “stunned” after the Virginia man accidentally impaled himself with his lance during a re-enactment event over the weekend. Peter Barclay, 53, was competing in an equestrian game in front of a crowd in Williamstown, Kentucky Saturday when he was fatally injured. Participating in events under the knight name of Master Terafan Greydragon, Peter went to spear a paper plate while on horseback when something went wrong and his lance impaled him under his sternum, WLWT confirms. Peter, a military veteran, was airlifted to a hospital but died en...

    Even with the midterm elections looming, Republican leaders in Congress made clear this week they're paying close attention to a looming battle over President Donald Trump's promised border wall. On Monday, House Speaker Paul Ryan predicted a "big fight" over border security on the horizon, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that the GOP is "committed" to working to secure the funding the President wants for his signature campaign pledge.

    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    Dozens of faculty and staff members at Eastern Kentucky University have sent a letter to the school’s president in opposition to President Trump. The letter, with over 100 signatures, comes days before Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign rally on the university’s campus. The faculty letter does not oppose the rally itself, but condemns Trump and the campaign he ran, saying it is against to the university’s values. It also raises concerns about “disruption” to student life from the rally. “We must object to this campaign which has consistently, openly, and unambiguously attacked the values of inquiry, learning, and...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told nationally-syndicated radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and his "political operation" was behind the leaking of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford "from the very beginning." @@ SEN. TOM COTTON (R-ARKANSAS): Hugh, I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning. We learned last week that a woman named Monica McLean was Ms. Ford’s roommate, and she was one of the so-called beach friends who encouraged Ms. Ford to go to Dianne Feinstein and the partisan Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. Well, it just turns...

    Declaration could put Iowa Republican at odds with Mitch McConnell Revealing a potentially contentious Republican chasm, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley told Fox News on Tuesday night that if he still leads the committee in 2020 and a Supreme Court seat becomes vacant, the panel would not consider a nominee. That could put the Iowa Republican at odds with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell signaled last week that he could reverse himself and consider what would be a third high court nominee for President Donald Trump should a vacancy arise in 2020. The Kentucky Republican famously blocked President...

    The Senate on Wednesday defeated a Democratic measure to overrule President Trump’s expansion of non-ObamaCare insurance plans as Democrats seek to highlight health care ahead of the midterm elections. The Democratic measure would have overruled Trump’s expansion of short-term health insurance plans, which do not have to cover people with pre-existing conditions or cover a range of health services like mental health or prescription drugs. It was defeated on an extremely narrow, mostly party line 50-50 vote, with Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) voting with Democrats in favor of overturning the short-term plans. Republicans argue the short-term plans simply provide a...

    AFTER A 50-YEAR siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in last Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it. The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat. And the triumph is President Trump’s. To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high...
