Kentucky Democrats, Beshear, Obamacare and Economic Growth


It is increasingly clear that Democratic Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is a tool of the Obama administration, in light of the media assertion Obamacare is doing well in the state. That's being touted even though hundreds of thousands of people in Kentucky will lose their desired insurance carrier.

Beshear wrote an op-ed in the liberal New York Times saying Obamacare is going to be a boon for the state, and will be good for the health of the people of the commonwealth, even though it is proven there will be death panels to decide on who receives care, as well as money given to allow abortions.

What isn't reported by many news outlets in Kentucky is the fact Kentucky's economy is getting hammered, with unemployment climbing to 8.4 percent, higher than it was in October 2012.

From September 2013, the civilian labor force in Kentucky has shrunk by almost 10,000, led by a 2,100 plunge in manufacturing jobs in October. A combination of over 9,00 logging and mining jobs have been lost over the last 12 months, with the information sector losing 1,700 jobs. Building has also declining, shedding almost 2,000 jobs over the last 12 months.

Yet Beshear and the Democrats continue to plug the Obamacare disaster as a source of growth. Whenever a state counts on government programs for growth, it's going to decline, as has Beshear's Kentucky.

The pathetic and unprofessional Democratic Governor said in the op-ed when responding to the workability and/or constitutionality of Obamacare, that the people of Kentucky need to get over it.

No. The people of Kentucky need to get over Beshear, the Democrats, and senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, who are all wrong for the conservative, god-fearing people of Kentucky.

We must reject the Democratic Party in Kentucky for moving lock-step with the liberal Obama. The only way to save the state is to vote in conservatives who represent the values of Kentuckians, and will represent them in the face of whatever opposition arises.

Big government programs are not economic growth, and until the liberal Democrats of Kentucky understand that, we need to vote them out in droves until they respond to who the people of Kentucky are and what they believe.

Kentucky "Pastor" Accused of Being Drug Kingpin

The so-called pastor of Holiness Tabernacle Church in Olive Hill, Kentucky, Scott Gilliam, was arrested and accused of being a drug kingpin by police. He is being called the head of the largest pill trafficking ring in the history of Kentucky.

The unidentified lead detective of the state's FADE drug task force said that Gilliam "pastored a church while he was engaging in a major drug trafficking organization [which] is pretty heinous."

"Tens of thousands of pills that have a street value of $40 to $45 each. So you're talking [a] multi-million dollar trafficking organization," added the lead detective.

Gilliam used the church building as a base to traffic the drugs. Arrested with Gilliam was Brandon Logan, 28. The two were charged with conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and possession with intent to distribute.

This underscores the need for Christianity to take a much closer look at changing its practices, as people that are in fellowship and close relationships would have been able to see what was going on, and deal with it before it reached these proportions.

Another important factor is Christians must perform far better due diligence when identifying leaders, as there are clear mandates in the Bible as to what constitutes a leader, and those requirements must be not only identified, but proven over time.

Democratic Governor Steve Beshear Allows Same-Sex "Marriage" Benefits to National Guard

Putting his boot in the face of the people of Kentucky once again, Kentucky Governor Steven Beshear, a Democrat, is allowing so-called spouses of homosexual National Guard members to apply for benefits.

As with a growing number of Democrats, Beshear simply sidestepped the will of the people of Kentucky, who don't recognize gay marriage as legitimate in any way.

Beshear used the decision by the Supreme Court which struck down part of the Defense of Marriage act which didn't recognize same-sex marriages, as an excuse to give the go ahead to provide benefits to these non-married people.

Based on the recommendation of Kentucky Adjutant General Edward Tonini and Beshear's affirmation of the recommendation, now homosexual National Guard members are allowed to apply for federal marriage benefits in Kentucky, even though they aren't recognized as legally married in the state.

This isn't just an outrageous slap in the fact to the people of Kentucky, but it is an direct insult to Jesus Christ whose commandments forbid homosexuality, let alone them getting married and receiving benefits.

The people of Kentucky need to remember this as the 2014 elections approach, as liberal Alison Lundergan Grimes runs for the Senate. Grimes also refuses to reject the extremely unpopular Obamacare, and instead is walking lockstep with the Democratic Party on supporting it.

Kentucky needs to let the Democratic Party know that they will no longer put up with its opposition to the conservative will of its people. The only way they will hear that message is to vote them out of office in large numbers.

Baptist Sunrise Children’s Services May Allow Gay Workers

Smithwick secretly called a Sunrise Children’s Services board meeting in August in an attempt to pressure members to accept gays as a matter of expediency. This alone disqualifies him from what is identified as a "Christian" ministry.

This brings up some important issues that Christians need to face. First, ministry should never become a god, as it has with some, who consider the most important thing in life is to ensure its survival. Second, the matter of accepting government funds as part of the growth and expansion of the "ministry" must be abandoned, as there is no doubt in the years ahead in Kentucky and America there will be more efforts to slash that funding.

If Jesus Christ is really behind a work and/or ministry, there should be no problem with Him providing the resources needed for it to succeed. The idea that we need funds from the government to support God's work is one that is not Biblical in any way, and a slap in the face to Jesus Christ; as if we're a bunch of beggars that must petition an earthly king to serve Christ and people.

Kentucky Baptists and Christians in general should rise up against this atrocity, not to battle the government over accessing funds, but to have Smithwick removed, offer an opportunity to support the work through donations, and to allow whatever happens to happen in order that the spiritual integrity associated with the work remains in place.

At the board meeting Smithwick specifically called for gays to be allowed to work at Sunrise, a direct contradiction of promises he made for years.

Smithwick needs to leave, the ministry needs to be considered in light of being representative of Jesus Christ and His teachings, and a new look at growing at the pace Christ desires for a work must be considered.

Jesus Christ is never moved primarily by need, and those who proclaim Christ and want to do something in His name need to embrace all He is and what He represents when reaching out on His behalf.

We need to get out of this mindset of "ministry at any cost" and any dependence on the government to make it happen.

Kentucky Obamacare a Disaster


The idea being put forth that Kentucky is a success for Obamacare is one that can't be backed up by facts, as the only metric being used assert success is the number of people signing up and the exchange itself is running fairly well.

When you think of it though, so what? It's the law that people have to sign up, so the idea that some people are signing up, albeit only a small percentage, can't be taken too seriously. All it means is the other exchanges around the United States are a disaster in comparison.

Where the disaster comes in is in regard to the approximate 280,000 residents of Kentucky who will lose their existing health insurance because of this disastrous health plan, even though Obama said it wasn't going to happen in large numbers.

According to Kentucky officials, around 130,000 individuals will lose their insurance and another 150,000 residents of Kentucky that are part of a small group policy will have their insurance canceled.

It's incredible that Democratic President Obama promised people this wouldn't happened, yet it is happening in such large numbers. Kentucky Democratic Governor Steve Beshear should be ashamed of himself for supporting Obamacare so strongly while the people of Kentucky suffer because of it. It's another of a growing number of reasons to vote Democrats out in the next election, including Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is running to represent the people of Kentucky in the Senate.

Her connection to Hollywood elites, who don't represent the values of the people of Kentucky, and Obama and the Democratic Party, point to her being out of touch with the the average person.

Kentucky Obamacare is already infuriating thousands of Kentucky residents, as they are forced to take on new insurance policies and drop their old policies. I guess this is what Obama, Beshear, Grimes, and Democrats consider success.

Alison Lundergan Grimes' Hollywood Handouts

Accurate depiction of who and what Grimes is

In a move that will eventually backfire dramatically for typical Democratic Kentucky senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, she has went begging to Hollywood liberals to financially prop up her otherwise unispiring campaign, if you can even call it that.

All of the celebrities backing Grimes oppose the values of the people of Kentucky, but that has no effect upon Grimes, who cynically grabs what she can get in order to compete, although she has been awol for a long time, and has made little effort to carve out where she stands on issues important to Kentuckians.

Among the liberal, socialist celebrities Grimes has reached out to, include Woody Allen, Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Ben Stiller, among many others, who have donated the maximum $5,200 to Grimes allowed under law.

It's way past time for Grimes to start telling the people of Kentucky what she stands for and why replacing McConnell is something we should give her.

The fact she is wooing Hollywood already sends a message to Kentucky that she doesn't have or support our values. That's enough to send her packing in the next election, as we can't have someone under the thumb of Hollywood liberals voting for proposals behalf of the people of Kentucky.

Kentucky Rejects Gay Divorce Tactic

In an attempt to destroy Kentucky's marriage laws, two lesbians who are allegedly getting divorced, are attempting to change Kentucky law by attempting to get divorced in the state.

So why do I say this is an alleged divorce? Because Kentucky law not only doesn't recognize same-sex marriage as marriage, but also doesn't recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

That means there is no marriage that exists, so the idea of getting divorced makes no sense whatsoever. All it is is a strategy to attempt to bring the case before the Supreme Court of Kentucky in hopes they'll overturn the law.

A lawyer of one of the lesbians says the couple shouldn't have to return to Massachusetts to get a divorce because of how it would disrupt their lives. How is that Kentucky's problem? It isn't. They know this, and are deliberately focusing on the so-called hardship in order to garner sympathy. All to the end of overthrowing the will and law of the people of Kentucky, whose values reject the deviant lifestyles of the two lesbians.

Listening to lawyer Louis Waterman, you can see the tactic being employed. He already stated he will appeal the dismissal of the divorce and seek to have the Kentucky Supreme Court throw out the marriage amendment, based upon the lie that it violates equal protection under the federal constitution.

The comments of homosexual advocate Beth Littrell, an attorney for Lambda Legal, a homosexual activist group, confirm this is a show case to attempt to undermine the Kentucky marriage amendment. She said the requirement to force a same-sex couple to continue to be married doesn't make sense.

Okay, let's clear this up one more time. Under Kentucky law, this couple isn't married. There is no requirement for them to remain married, because they aren't married.

What is being attempted is to make it look like there is a hardship as a result of Kentucky law, and that it is draconian because it forces this couple to remained married against their wishes.

Again, they aren't married, and just because they are recognized in the state of Massachusetts, it has no bearing whatsoever on the laws of Kentucky.

Homosexuals are going to continue to get married where it is recognized in order to bring all sorts of scenarios into the legal realm in order to undermine state laws rejecting gay marriages. Another one in Kentucky was when a lesbian murderer attempted to bypass Kentucky law by petitioning the court concerning her lesbian partner not having to testify because it violated the law where spouses aren't required to testify against one another.

This is simply another version of attempting to have a court of some type recognize gays as being married, in order to take the next step of removing the marriage law.

Homosexuals aren't married who live in the state of Kentucky, and every attempt to manipulate and bypass the will and values of the people of Kentucky needs to be struck down with extreme prejudice.
