Steve Knipper, frontrunner for the GOP nomination for Kentucky’s Secretary of State and an alumnus of Covington Catholic High School, spoke with Big League Politics Monday morning in the midst of the controversy surrounding the school.
“It’s just one of those things where they’re going to try to make a story,” Knipper, a 1988 graduate of the the school said, referring to the mainstream press
“Here’s a Northern Kentucky prep school that raises leaders. The discipline at Covington Catholic is so pronounced I can’t see somebody doing something to provoke a fight like that,” he continued.
Knipper was referring to the incident in which a Native American man approached a group of teenaged Covington Catholic students who were in Washington, D.C. for the March for Life last Friday. The man was beating his drum in the middle of their gathering as the boys, some wearing #MAGA hats, laughed along. Short clips of the incident made it appear as though the boys were mocking the man. The full clip, though, along with further evidence, shows that Native man approached the boys first. Further research into the man, Nathan Phillips, proves that he is a leftist activist and D-list celebrity. All signs point to the indisputable fact that he, not the boys, initiated the interaction. Predictably, the left-wing press has demonized the young men, calling them “racists.”
“It seems to me like they though ‘here’s an opportunity to take advantage of a bunch of younger guys who were wearing Trump hats,'” Knipper said. “I think they wanted to make this a political statement. They probably thought they saw some easy targets and thought ‘we can make a hey day out of this.'”
Leave it to the mainstream press, who was still wiping the egg off of its face after BuzzFeed’s flubbed story on President Donald J. Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen, to then immediately use children as political props to smear conservatives.
Knipper noted that there was nothing particularly controversial about the incident. The press, he recalled, claimed that the boys were chanting “build the wall,” when in reality the boys did not. Knipper added that he watched the video “20 or 30 times” to confirm that fact.
He then praised the boy in the center of the controversy, now named as Nathan Sandmann.
“In actuality, I think he showed great restraint,” Knipper said. “Had it been another school, it probably would not have worked out that way. I’ve heard people say, ‘well he had a smirk on his face, or he was making fun of [Phillips].’ I think the guy was just intimidated a little bit. He’s 15 years old and here’s a grown man staring him down, beating a drum in his face.”
“I want to reiterate the fact that Covington Catholic raises leaders,” Knipper finished. “They give you such a good background, a good foundation, and preparation for life. Attitude-wise, socialization, communication, how to treat others – it’s all part of the curriculum. That’s what I would say the left really doesn’t understand about that school, and for them to demonize them, I think they’ve picked on the wrong school.”

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe
The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.
The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.
Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.
There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.
This is the moment

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.
Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.
MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
