We read or witness the continual disparaging of our duly-elected pro-life President every day.

To help counter this trend, on Friday, July 31, KRLA issued a media release restating our endorsement of President Trump. Read it here.

Mail-in voting update

Last week, Secretary of State Adams stated that he is considering scaling back mail-in voting eligibility for the general election this fall. Gov. Beshear disapproved of this. He was quoted as saying that with the pandemic “more dangerous now than it was during the primary election,” Kentucky should continue no-excuse absentee voting this fall.

SOS Adams noted that Kentucky handled increased mail-in voting effectively and without fraud in the primary, but he is “dubious” that the same model can be fully replicated in the fall with significantly higher turnout.

“It’s not obvious that our county clerks or the post office can manage a 250% increase in absentee ballots,” Adams said. “That is based on feedback from state and local election officials from both major parties. They and I are concerned that going from 750,000 absentee ballots to 1.875 million absentee ballots, or more, would overload and crash our system.”

An important announcement is on the KRLA PAC page. Let’s all get involved in helping to elect pro-life candidates!

A somewhat troubling discussion about the General Election prospects may be heard on the July 28 KET video covering state government and legislators’ questions on this issue. SOS Adams begins speaking at about 33 minutes.

Every day we hear news that breaks pro-life hearts. We read stories about COVID ‘necessitating’ Telemedicine and at-home procedures that could result in extreme trauma and even death for women; about decisions in our courts that favor abortion clinics, and demands made by legislators to force taxpayers to pay for abortion, related health insurance, research on aborted fetuses, and to fund abortion worldwide.

The next three months are sure to break all records for bad behavior by politicians, and we can only encourage prayer as the way forward.

The Courier-Journal stated on December 12, 2019 that the voting rights of more than 140,000 felons with completed sentences were restored by Gov. Beshear. Readers were simultaneously reminded about Bevin’s pardons of criminals through in-article links to stories.

Then, on March 4, 2020, the C-J reported about a state website that allows 152,000 Ky. felons to see if their voting rights have been restored. There is a big difference between 140,000 and 152,000.

Then on April 2, 2020 the C-J told us in a story headline that Gov. Beshear would release 186 inmates, “as coronavirus cases rapidly increase with 700 more coming soon.” But in the article the specific number was 743. “It's likely to be the first of at least two waves of early releases, with the second involving 743 inmates, state officials said.”

Then on April 28, 2020, the C-J announced that Gov. Beshear commuted the sentences of an additional 352 state inmates. They were near the end of sentences for nonviolent, nonsexual felonies.

Gov. Bevin had intended to ask Kentuckians to vote on a ballot measure as to whether or not felon voting rights should be restored. It would be the people’s decision.

An attorney friend has noted: I always thought that, if a person was convicted of a felony, they had shown poor judgment and should lose the right to vote. If they lived a good life for a period of time after serving their time, they could petition for a restoration of their voting rights, but I don't think it should be automatic. I also am not crazy about automatic expungement of records. It is one thing to give a person a second chance, but it is up to the person to show they are worthy of it, and potential employers should not be deceived.

Whatever your sincerely held belief on the matter, the number of felons who can vote this year is increasing as the pandemic evolves. How will this affect the 2020 Elections?

The “niche” is a marketing dream. With a niche, a business can so easily target numerous individuals to attract their interest and to educate them. To gain their loyalty. To—ask for their vote? But, who would do this? Who has the felons’ contact information?

Some races will be very close. For example, in the 2018 General Election, in District 96, Kathy Hinkle (D) won over incumbent representative Jill York (R) by 5 votes. In District 91, for that election, Cluster Howard (D) beat incumbent representative Toby Herald (R) by 7 votes. The image from Ballotpedia.com shows a race that was won by A SINGLE VOTE. Many other races in 2018 were extremely close, and they will be again in 2020.

Some (many?) citizens may not bother to vote in the Primary because of the “pandemic” process that requires more effort than ever before.

See this article for the new process.

Yes, pro-lifers currently hold a majority in the Kentucky House and Senate, but DON’T EVER IMAGINE that cannot change.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andy Beshear received a big bipartisan boost on Monday with the endorsement from a longtime state legislator.

Republican state Sen. Dan Seum, of Fairdale, bucked the GOP to endorse Beshear, the state's attorney general, over incumbent Matt Bevin in the upcoming Kentucky gubernatorial election…

Lines are being drawn. If we are pro-life, we must vote that way. There are fewer than 100 days to the General Election. Our pro-life progress of the past several years depends on re-electing Governor Bevin. Be proud of this staunch defender of innocent human life. Your vote counts!
