Former state representative Charles Booker built an energized following during 2020's racial reckoning protests by telling his story of struggles and hopes. But once he steps outside Jefferson County, people wonder if he is just howling to a smattering of lefties. So why is he running for the U.S. Senate instead of sliding directly into the Louisville mayor's office? Hard to tell. Mr. Booker's plan is to continue growing his base "from the hood to the holler" to unseat Senator Rand Paul. Pundits claim a Booker victory is a real long shot in Trump loving Kentucky, but Charles claims "we proved them wrong." No one has been proved wrong yet. A Booker victory would become that proof but can it actually happen? The voters will
God, our judge, we plead our case with you. Lay your Divine hand upon the outcome of this (Derek Chauvin) case and also on our compatriots' anger, thoughts of revenge, and the insatiable need to disrupt and destroy. Stay any inclinations toward violence and remind us that vengeful behavior is no more justified than the acts of those who precipitated this grief and harm and ignited our cities. As you inevitably judge our response to the incidents of unrest that plague our land, forgive our iniquities and heal our brokenness. Redeem the soul of our country. Today's opening prayer in Congress delivered by Rear Admiral Margaret Grun Kibben (ret) covers every facet of America's dilemmas with right and wrong, race equity,
VISIT DOWNTOWN LOUISVILLE: WE PROBABLY WON'T SHOOT YOU! Is this our city's next tourism slogan? Image makers are furiously weaving their woke principles to the city's desperation for downtown activity. The pandemic started the freefall but unhinged protesters set Louisville on a course to become Kentucky's biggest ghost town. The idiotic "driver hits Louisville protester" headline (on the video below) should actually read: "Woke thugs attack driver as one moron protester is deservedly run over" Welcome to Louisville. We used to be fun! After that driver wisely drove away from her terrorizers, one chased her to the next red light and pointed a gun at her before she sped away. Louisville is a friendly town! Did you notice the other car parked to intentionally block traffic at
The Divine Miss M cheers violence against elected officials who don't support her war strategies. Good to know.

John Yarmuth jumped on the radio with me today to discuss last night's tumultuous protest outside the home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. We also talked about what to do with modified weapons that fire 100 rounds in a few seconds, the perils of doxxing, and the uproar over McConnell fanboys pawing all over a cardboard cutout of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Yarmuth said Republicans are fearful of acting on gun legislation because they would likely pick up primary opponents
Louisville mayor references "peaceful assembly" where the protest organizer outside Mitch McConnell's house suggests that someone "stab the motherf***er in the heart. Sounds peaceful. #compassionatecity #NoHate full video: https://t.co/HYK1DUEiSn 📸 @nypost https://t.co/hHy3W26GTf pic.twitter.com/6lqUiD9qgM— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) August 6, 2019 Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin tweeted his dismay that Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer would allow protesters to hurl death threats outside the home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The protest was led by Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helms who screams the f-word throughout the two-hour late evening protest. Helms is known for her screed urging white people to give up their homes to black families as a form of reparation for slavery. Mayor Fischer responded to Governor Bevin the next morning
There's lots of bad information being distributed following a Ferguson, Missouri grand jury's decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown, who had just stolen from a convenience store and was confronted by Wilson. An altered version of the middle sign became a sensation on the Internet: ----------------------------------------------- Perhaps the worst response comes from Nation of Islam leader Rev. Louis Farrakhan, extolling the virtues of young blacks rioting and saying, "Let's die for something." According to Nation of Islam leader Rev. Louis Farrakhan, peaceful protests are yet another manipulation by the white man over people of color, justifying violent retaliation by African Americans. A recent St. Louis murder by minority teenagers beating a white-skinned Bosnian man to death with hammers has
by Terry Meiners March 26, 2014 This is not a post about race. It is a post about a community's inherent mission, the protection of its law-abiding citizens from predators. The Great Wall of China is not a decoration. That wall, forts, castles, and foxholes were created for protection from predators. People who live in a community do so with the understanding that they will protect each other - or pay taxes to afford efficient protection - from those who would burst the order of the community. When a person or persons within the community breach that pact, they are sent to another sturdy construction called a prison so that they cannot continue preying upon their community.
