Ohio’s Department of Insurance said on Thursday that non-profit managed care company CareSource will sell health plans in Paulding County next year – the last county in the United States that would have been without Obamacare individual coverage in 2018. [Reuters]

Tax reform is “off the table” for a likely October special session to tackle how to shore up Kentucky’s badly underfunded public pension system.

It’s nice to see people like Carla Wallace speaking up about Kentucky Farm Bureau’s anti-gay discrimination these days. Because she was one of the people who dragged her feet out of indifference (yes you did, goddamnit, so don’t even try to dispute it) and criticized me for promoting Todd Eklof all those years ago. She’s proof that people can wake up and do the right thing. And this entire situation is proof that you should listen to people who ring bells loudly with a track record of being right. [WFPL]

Just before Trump strolled onto the rally stage on Tuesday evening, four speakers took turns carefully denouncing hate, calling for unity and ever so subtly assuring the audience that the president is not racist. [WaPo]

If You Support The Second Amendment, You Should Support Responsible Gun Ownership, No Excuses

If it’s a crime to let kids ingest your meth or your pills, it should be a crime to let them get a hold of a loaded gun.

[H-L]

Donald Trump issued an explosive statement against “Radical Islamic Terror” just hours after an attack in Barcelona, Spain, on Thursday left at least 13 people dead.

Einstein argued that what we understand as gravity is, in fact, from the curvature of space and time — a hotly debated notion among physicists at the time.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded its second, five-year accreditation through the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police (KACP). [The Morehead News]

First They Came For Media & Now They’re Coming For You

If you’re a Republican in Kentucky and refuse to stand up to loudly condemn Donald Trump at this juncture? Know that I will work until the day I die to ruin your professional political life. When reporters began to ask about whether the alt-right was behind the Charlottesville bloodshed, though, Trump unleashed a torrent of both-sides whataboutism and crankery. “What about the alt-left that came charging at the—as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?” he asked. Trump added that there were “some very fine people on both sides” at the protest, and that there was a peaceful march the night before. [Slate]

[Glasgow Daily Times]

The white supremacist forces arrayed in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend — the largest gathering of its sort in at least a generation — represented a new incarnation of the white supremacy movement.

RPK Should Practice The BS It Preaches

***Care about the future of Kentucky? Help us cover FOIA and open records request fees relating to Matt Bevin and Jamie Comer.*** [CLICK HERE]

And Tres Watson doesn’t have a conflict of interest? His former employer and close pal, Scott Jennings, did P.R. spin for Jim Ramsey and the UofL Foundation. He’s tight with people all over UofL.

Put down the bottle, RPK liars, and look for new employment because you’re about to get burned just like the Democrats are being burned with Julian… and soon to be Wendell. [H-L]

No, KDP Circus Isn’t “Close” To Ending

PEE ALERT! Jared Smith has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about. The Kentucky Democratic Party has only just begun to feel the scorch of decades upon decades of good old boy corruption. It’s not remotely close to being over. I was right about, oh, everything else. Was right about Julian Carroll. Right about this. What’s coming next will shake the KDP to its core and make it impossible to rebuild with the existing crew of electeds. Until that current crop of shysters is pushed out, nothing will improve. Note: Adam Edelen and Terry McBrayer are two of the most problematic Democrats in the Commonwealth and they’re part of the problem. Source: Everything they say and do. [H-L]

Three weeks ago, one of Donald Trump’s personal lawyers vigorously denied that the commander in chief had anything to do with Donald Trump Jr.’s statement about a secret meeting with a Russian lawyer.

The Herald-Leader Repeatedly Failed Montgomery County For Years And Here’s A Perfect Reminder

***Care about the future of Kentucky? Help us cover FOIA and open records request fees relating to Matt Bevin and Jamie Comer.*** [CLICK HERE]

The best part about this story is that Valarie Honeycutt Spears didn’t bother to mention how all of these victims spent years reaching out to her for help. Only to be told that there was no story there, that Jake was mistaken, that there was nothing to see, move along. Welp, how bout them apples? More than four years of investigative journalism produced these results and the Herald-Leader couldn’t be bothered to mention that this isn’t new news. Partially out of bitterness toward someone doing their job for them and calling them lazy for missing the biggest education scandal in our lifetime… and partially out of trying to save face. [H-L]

In recent days, American Airlines has been forced to cancel more than 40 flights in Phoenix. The reason: With daytime highs hovering around 120 degrees, it was simply too hot for some smaller jets to take off. Hotter air is thinner air, which makes it more difficult — and sometimes impossible — for planes to generate enough lift. As the global climate changes, disruptions like these are likely to become more frequent, researchers say, potentially making air travel costlier and less predictable with a greater risk of injury to travelers from increased turbulence. [NY Times]

Leave it to Matt Bevin to have a lesser understanding of the freedom of speech than the Kentucky Democratic Party. The Supreme Court reserves the highest scrutiny for content-based restrictions on speech. Blocking only those Twitter users with whom Bevin disagrees is a content-based restriction on speech.
