I am pro-life, but Bevin is not just wrong, he is purposefully deceiving the people of the commonwealth.
Yes, the clinic did apply for a license, and is operating the facility before the license is issued. But that is proper procedure under Kentucky law. The commonwealth will not issue a license to a medical facility until AFTER they have begun operation. The facility is granted permission to begin pre-license operations, which are done through the guidance of the overseeing agencies. The commonwealth will then inspect and review the facility’s policies and procedures WHILE THE FACILITY IS OPERATING before issuing a license.
Planned Parenthood filed the application in November, the facility opened in December. The commonwealth did not find cause to reject the application until they announced earlier this week that abortions were being offered. This reeks of political meddling.
It appears that Planned Parenthood was following the law. Something is not illegal simply because we do not like it — even if we find it abhorrent. And something sure as hell isn’t illegal simply because a governor says so. I do not like abortion — but neither do I like lying politicians.

Aw, did the big tough man get asked a tough question?

For a man who talks about how tough he is, he’s awfully afraid of a woman.

If a politician tells you they do not like a reporter, than that is the exact reporter you want interviewing them, moderating their debates, etc. That should be taken as an endorsement.
by that logic, George Stephanopoulos should be the only moderator they'll need for every RNC debate- ever!

Unless conservatism means a support for big government and authoritarianism, along with a dismissal of the Constitution, then Trump is not conservative. And neither are his supporters.

Not in the least. The behavior of this planet is far, far different than what is claimed about Nibiru.

Okay, Barber. Please…explain the point of the comments, tell us what everyone here is missing.
She talks about what her “family is going through” then proceeds to remind us that he is a solider fighting for all of us, and tells us that Obama does not honor or respect our military. So, please — what is the point of all that if not to make her son the victim, and shift blame?

Good for him.
But the Catholics beat him to it by about 2000 years.
I know, Bernie is leading Hillary. These fascists/socialists are hell bent on destroying this country.

R.I.P the Tea Party Movement — 2009 – 2016.
Increasingly, the conservative movement proves that their rhetoric about limited, Constitutional government is nothing but lip service. They are showing that they have nothing in the way of principles, willing to sacrifice their ideals in favor of big government and authoritarianism. Their every criticism and fear about Obama’s use and abuse of executive power is embodied in Donald Trump. They are showing that their professed love of the Constitution and limited government was nothing but a lie — they in fact love big government, disdain the Constitution, and will support an authoritarian, as long as they are the ones in charge.

To paraphrase Sixgunner, as a libertarian, who reveres the Constitution and deplores Pres. Obama’s disdain for it, I am deeply concerned about Mr. Trump.

So, you think the solution is another bully?

Cavallo — you want to hear he supports freedom, federalism, and limited government — yet, he tells you he supports the exact opposite and you still support him! You tell us in order to stop the erosion of the Constitution that it needs to be eroded further.
Do you hear yourself?

He said what they wanted to hear and they fell for it.
The right and evangelicals are proving themselves to be fascists.
Christians fight back against BLM, race baiters and invaders.
That's your headline and story.

Evangelicals are allowing themselves to be deceived. For months, Trump has dodged questions about his commitment to faith, dismissing them with weak answers about living a good life, having a roomful of Bibles, and not asking forgiveness.
But now, two weeks before Iowa, he is pandering to evangelicals. Quoting the Bible. Claiming he will “protect” Christianity abroad. And the evangelicals are falling for it.
The man is nothing but a fascist. He embodies the worst criticisms made about Obama over the past eight years — but the right now thinks those are strengths to be lauded in a president.
