Alison Lundergan Grimes: Obamacare's Lapdog

The extremely unpopular Obamacare law is under attack from senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell,
who is calling for a repeal of the costly health care law that the vast majority of Americans didn't want.

Only the outrageous attack and pressure of Obama on Democrats representing states and regions that didn't want the socialist law to be forced upon them brought the law into being.

Now that Mitch McConnell is calling for the repeal
of this disaster, Alison Lundergan Grimes has betrayed her real colors, as she uses the old idea that just because people in Kentucky are getting free health care, she opposes repealing the unworkable mandate.

Many people in Kentucky need to understand this is horrible for those that have to pay for their health care insurance, as costs will continue to rise because many young people refuse to sign up for it, which is the backbone of it being financially feasible in even a small way.

What Grimes and her socialist ilk don't tell you is the cost of health care for a majority of people is skyrocketing because they have to pay for others to get the care by having their premiums jump in price. This is also because Obamacare forces them to pay for health services they'll never use.

The first thing that must be done is to repeal Obamacare. That's the first and only step that needs to be considered. Everything else is speculation as to what happens next.

All this law is doing is causing hardships for working people.

McConnell has it right in saying once Obamacare is eradicated, at that time health insurance companies should be released to compete in all states without government interference. In that market atmosphere, prices would fall because of the intense competition for customers.

His opponent Grimes won't even say whether she would have voted for the unpopular law. She knows if she does, the people of Kentucky will quickly let her know at the ballot box.

The hardworking people of Kentucky need to closely watch how their lives are being affected by the higher cost of health care, and vote accordingly in the next election.

Grimes' unwillingness to tell the people of Kentucky how she would have voted, only underscores the fact she will do what her handlers from Obama tell her.

Wait until the time when your life or the life of your loved ones are on the life, and the death panels decide whether or not Obamacare will take care of you. Vote Grimes and the death party out of Kentucky.

Hodgenville Storm Damage

In the morning hours a hail storm with high winds hit Hodgenville, causing a lot of damage and fallen trees. Here are some photos of the damage in the area.

Next is the trunk of the tree above lying across the road.

The tree below was the one in front of the Board of Education building

This is just a small sampling of the fallen trees within a few blocks of each other. All of this happened in Hodgenville in a very short period of time.

McConnell Continues to Hammer Obamacare Disaster

While some attempt to make the attempt of Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell to blast the disastrous Obamacare initiative as a no-win situation, in truth it's a dynamic issue that is on the hearts and minds of the people of Kentucky, who are going to suffer from the extraordinary rise in insurance costs accompanying the law.

One misguided writer said this:

But Obamacare may not turn out to be the campaign issue that Senator McConnell hopes it will be. True, Kentuckians – like most Americans – disapprove of the Affordable Care Act. But they also live in a state where implementation of the ACA has been held up as a national model for its smooth roll out and easy interface with users. More than 1 in 10 residents is now covered by "kynect," the state-run exchange under the ACA.

The problem isn't how smoothly the state exchange was implemented; it has nothing to do with the disaster that Obamacare is. The disaster is the socialist health care law itself, which is suffocating hard-working Americans, who are paying far more than the Democrats, who are responsible for the bill, said it would.

There is also the growing long waits to get basic care, and the death panels that decide whether you're going to get care at all for some procedures.

When the election comes about in Kentucky for the Senate, Democrats and the inexperienced Alison Lundergan Grimes will have to give answers as to why they accepted Obamacare as a whole, and why the people of Kentucky are suffering as a result.

The soaring costs of medical coverage, along with the accompanying government oversight which results in it deciding who gets what type of coverage in specific cases, makes it an extremely unpopular law for those who actually make a living.

McConnell and the Republicans need to continue to hammer at this issue. It's one that the majority of the people of Kentucky oppose, as well as the majority of Americans.

DeVore Takes Over as Mayor as Cruse Tossed Out

Mayor Kenny DeVore
Embattled Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse was removed from office by a 9-0 vote of the city council, after allegations he and City Clerk Madonna Hornback spent thousands of dollars for personal reasons.

The council voted in Kenny DeVore as interim mayor. He will serve until an election in November to determine who the new mayor will be. Anyone interested in running will have until August to declare their intentions.

When asked about the situation before the decision to oust Cruse was made, Hodgenville Police Chief Steven Johnson said he believed the council should have waited until after the criminal case was decided.

He does have a point there. What happens if Cruse is exonerated from wrong-doing, and was removed on the assumption he was guilty?

Cruse and Hornbach were indicted by a grand jury in December, with both being accused of using fuel credit cards issued by the city to make personal purchases. The total between the two that was alleged to have been spent comes to over $30,000.

Part of the hearing with the council were allegations of nepotism, relating to Cruse having his son hired for a job he wasn't qualified for, and that Hornbach's son was also hired by the city. The city of Hodgenville has a nepotism policy in place, which Council member Jim Phelps says was violated by Cruse and Hornbach.

According to Cruse, the hearing to remove him was a political one. He claims all the city council members have agendas.

Cruse is also running for LaRue County Sheriff. The primary election is scheduled to be held on Tuesday.

Whatever follows for Cruse and Hornbach, and whether or not politics eventually came into the picture, some of the decisions that were made were poor ones, and in that regard they have no one to blame but themselves for ending up in the position they are in.

 The pair will face criminal charges in June.

Beshear Tackles Gay Marriage while Jack Conway Hides

After the ungodly and corrupt U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II imposed his will on the citizens of Kentucky by striking down Kentucky's constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, where 1,222,125 voters overwhelmingly voted to pass the law, Governor Steve Beshear has had to hire an outside law firm because the immoral Attorney General Jack Conway refused to stand up for the people and law of Kentucky, basically saying it wasn't moral.

It's an odd thing for someone elected to represent the people of Kentucky, to refuse to do so. Now this elected official who refused to perform his duty, is running for governor. We know what we must do to send the message that we won't be stepped on by Conway.

Not only that, but the people of Kentucky will now have to pay out a lot of money for the law firm because of Conway's refusal to perform his sworn duty.

The strategy of Beshear's office, which is to argue against having to recognize gay marriages performed in other states, focuses on the inability for homosexuals to bear children, which is of course a major reason God instituted marriage in the first place, in order that people would fill the earth in accordance with His plan.

Of course Jesus Christ forbids people to be homosexuals in the first place, and  they aren't born that way, but choose it for a variety of reasons. The idea of gay marriage then is a mute one with God, as the practice of homosexuality is forbidden, so going from there to marriage makes no sense.

To me, this should have been the argument, as the people of Kentucky reject homosexuality and gay marriage of any kind. The issue is this corrupt judge is saying by his outrageous decision that the state of Kentucky doesn't operate as part of a democracy, as he, by exceeding his authority, stated that voters don't matter. This is activism and ideology trumping the law of Kentucky.

Essentially what this judge did is force the laws of a small number of state onto the people of Kentucky. He has no right to transfer law across state lines. He should be removed out of his office.

Just remember that Jack Conway refused to stand up for the people of Kentucky and Kentucky law when he runs for governor.

Liberal Jack Conway Announces He's Running for Governor

Liberal Democrat and Kentucky attorney general Jack Conway has officially announced that he will run for governor in 2015.

Conway got crushed by conservative Republican Rand Paul in the 2010 Senate race, and is unlikely to do well in the race for governor after he refused to fulfil his duty as Kentucky attorney general by not appealing a court ruling which would force Kentucky to recognize and uphold homosexual 'marriages' from out of state.

Conservatives across the state were outraged when Conway revealed he supported the judicial overreach when a federal judge corruptly intervened and bypassed Kentucky law.

Just like Ashley Judd, Conway is wrong for this state, and we need to send a clear message to politicians that they will represent us when we elect them or we'll boot them out of office. Conway must be booted out of office for his disrespect of the people of Kentucky based upon his liberal beliefs and agenda.

When liberals like Conway refuse to support the Kentucky Constitution, how much more mischief will he engage in like Obama has, who has also ignored the Constitution of the United State by calling it a living document; meaning he can make it mean whatever he personally wants it to. 

The reason Conway refused to defend the people of Kentucky against this federal intrusion? He said he did it on moral grounds. So where does Conway get his morality when the Holy Scriptures and Jesus Christ say marriage is between a man and a woman?

This liberal, Democratic morality is only sin under the guise of a tolerance. There is nothing more intolerant than the liberals who continue to attack and attempt to destroy Western civilization which is build on Biblical principles.

Fortunately Conway exposed his immoral beliefs, and we must send him back to the private sector to get a real job and repent for sinning against God and the people of Kentucky.
