Kentucky’s Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee voted to reject the standards in a 5-1 vote on Wednesday. But, King Beshear says to hell with the taxpayers and your little elected representatives, and your little Constitution; YOU GET WHAT I WANT! See the story here:
No matter where you stand on the Common Core issue, this should set off red flags and warning lights in your head.
Contact your representatives to let them know that the Governor has no authority to be a Dictator
Thomas Massie – (202) 225-3465
Rand Paul – 202-224-4343
Mitch McConnell - 202-224-2541

On September 11, 2013 the Kentucky Legislature’s Administrative Regulations Review Subcommittee considers a regulation that makes the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) the only set of science standards for every public school in Kentucky. This vote on regulation 704 KAR 3:303 is crucial. A favorable decision on Next Gen Science will likely doom thousands of Kentucky’s students to an incomplete science education that will almost certainly deny them a choice to advance into real careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics
Here’s what’s going on:
At a very basic level, the NGSS do not comply with the requirements for Kentucky’s new academic standards found in the 2009 Senate Bill 1 legislation.
A very key requirement in Senate Bill 1 says the revisions to the state’s academic standards will:
“Ensure that the standards are aligned from elementary to high school to post secondary education so that students can be successful at each education level.”

What: Mitch McConnell Townhall Meeting Where: 668 West 5th Street, Covington, KY
FreedomWorks is sponsoring this event because Senator Mitch McConnell is not holding townhalls during the August Recess to hear from you. "Where's Mitch" seems to be a common theme as reported in the Enquirer, "McConnell left after his speech and did not speak with media." FreedomWorks is hosting this townhall for him on September 14th to ask him why he won’t join Senator Mike Lee's effort to stop funding for ObamaCare.
Following the McConnell townhall, we will be discussing grassroots activism in Kentucky, what we can do to help you, and of course, hear from you, the activists as well! Register for the event here.
This Wednesday, September 11 is a fitting date for a presentation on Religious Freedom by Tom Lynch of the Thomas More Law Center out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The presentation is about how our founding fathers idea for our government is being altered by de-Christianization of America through

He will explain the interaction and funding mechanisms of groups such as the ACLU and CAIR and how our legal system is used to the detriment of our founding principles. Feel like your country is slipping away? Don't miss this important session and speaker.

In light of the tragedy that happened in Benghazi last year, September 11th has become even more of a significant date in American history.
A Muslim terrorist group stormed the American embassy outpost in Benghazi, Libya last year. Americans Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were murdered by the terrorists. During the 8 hour siege, the only military asset that was afforded was a drone that could only stream live video back to the Commander-in-Chief. A Special Forces team, anxious to respond, was ordered to stand down.
Please remember to honor those that lost their lives on 9/11, 2001 and 2012.
In Campbell County there will be a memorial for the Benghazi victims:
Noon – 1 PM
Disabled American Veterans, 3725 Alexandria Pike
Furniture Fair (across the street) has graciously allowed those attending the memorial to park in their lot.
There is another event in Campbell County on 9/11 that I would like you to attend and support me:
Are Public Libraries Still Valid in the 21st Century?
1098 Monmouth in the Fiscal Court Chambers.
I will be on the guest panel as we discuss the future of libraries.
Please attend this event; I will need your support. I have been told that those that have been offended by the Judge’s decision in our lawsuit will attempt to stack the deck against us. It will be a good idea to arrive early.
