Although Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has refused to concede defeat, preliminary results show his Democratic opponent Andy Beshear beating him by a narrow margin in yesterday’s gubernatorial race.
The final count showed Bevin trailing by a mere 4,658 votes, or 0.3 percentage points. This is well under the 28,427 votes collected by the Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate John Hicks, who received 2 percent of the vote in the election.
While it may not be the case that Libertarian voters would preferred Bevin if Hicks were theoretically removed from the ballot, the Libertarian Party of Kentucky (LPK) is taking great pride in their role as anti-Republican spoiler. They are rubbing it in the face of Bevin voters, flaunting their role in handing the governorship over to a socialist liberal.
“In an ideal world, we elect Libertarian candidates and advance liberty. Failing that, we push mainstream candidates towards liberty to advance the cause,” the LPK wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.
“But if we can’t do those things, we are always happy to split the vote in a way that causes delicious tears. Tonight there are plenty of delicious tears from Bevin supporters,” they added.
The LPK criticized Bevin despite his limited government credentials and willingness to push back against big government entities like the state teachers’ union as governor. They cited Bevin’s unwillingness to cut taxes or support criminal justice reform, despite the fact that did both while in office.
“We began by making it easier for formerly incarcerated people to get back to work, passing a comprehensive felony expungement bill that allows certain former offenders, who have been crime-free for five years, to wipe their slates clean,” Bevin said in a Fox News op/ed talking about his success in implementing criminal justice reform.
“We also passed a bold reentry initiative that provides for more job training and eliminates regulatory barriers to employment for people with criminal records,” he added, encouraging other states to implement similar measures.
Bevin also vetoed a $480 million tax hike, much to the chagrin of the state’s far-left teachers union. The Republican-led legislature would later override the measure, showing how Bevin was an iconoclast who would oppose big government factions of both major political parties. He also signed a $105 million tax cut earlier in the year and made cutting business regulations a key part of his platform.
Because of the LPK’s spoiler efforts, the state of Kentucky – barring a possible recount or discovery of voter fraud – will no longer have a governor who vetoes tax hikes, cuts red tape for job creators, and promotes free market economics. The Libertarians have hurt the people of Kentucky in their futile efforts, and alienated even more people from considering their unpopular philosophies.
Cuomo #MeToo Hoax Distracts From Real COVID-19 Nursing Home Deaths Scandal
This is the old bait and switch.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is in the process of getting #metoo’d, and it may be the best thing that has ever happened to him.
Before a bunch of female accusers came out with accusations of impropriety in a seemingly coordinated fashion, Cuomo was under fire for his murderous policies of housing COVID-19 patients in nursing homes with the elderly, vulnerable and infirmed.
Big League Politics has reported on the Cuomo genocide in New York as the scandal has unfolded:
The New York Post reported that a Cuomo aide admitted as such as Democratic New York state legislators on Thursday. Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa admitted that resarch related to the nursing home policy was spiked directly in response to criticism of the policy on the part of President Donald Trump.
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said of Trump, referencing presidential tweets questioning the nursing home policy in August. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”
“Then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”
A Queens Democrat assemblyman described DeRosa’s remarks as no less than revealing an attempt to avert federal scrutiny, preventing New York’s policy makers from learning of the deadly ramifications of the nursing home policy in the process.
“[it’s] like they admitted that they were trying to dodge having any incriminating evidence that might put the administration or the [Health Department] in further trouble with the Department of Justice,” said Ron Kim.
It’s all but impossible the Department of Justice will investigate the nursing home policy now that Joe Biden is President. Some have speculated that the policy cost New York as many as 10,000 lives, nearly half the deaths in the state with the most COVID-19 deaths in the nation.
After this scandal broke, these women – in fashion similar to Brett Kavanaugh and other #metoo hoaxes – emerged at the same time to get the focus off of Cuomo’s killings and put it onto his alleged sexual lasciviousness. This is very convenient, and those other Democrat governors who implemented similar policies may be breathing a sigh of relief as a result.
Commentators on the Left and Right have commented on the breathtaking idiocy of this entire media-contrived crisis:
In moronic Globalist American Empire the only hope we have of bringing war criminals, Wall Street crooks, and covid tyrants to justice is finding a former Secretary accuse them of giving the wrong compliment 15 years ago https://t.co/bx7uOIiWrc

Conservatives would be wise to stop taking the bait from the fake news media and running with their narratives that only reinforce cancel culture while detracting from the actual issues that matter.
