Kim Davis’ Hometown Hosts First Pride Event

“A year after Kim Davis made international headlines for refusing to distribute marriage licenses to same-sex couples on the basis of religion, her hometown of Morehead, Kentucky held its first ever Pride parade.

The parade was organized by David Moore, one of the first people denied a license from Davis. Once he and his husband, also named David, were finally able to get married last Halloween, they decided that they wanted to organize a Pride event for the town.

With the help of Morehead Pride, a nonprofit dedicated to the town’s LGBTQ community, and the Morehead tourism board, Moore was able to pull off Eastern Kentucky’s first Pride festival this past weekend

Though the infamous clerk didn’t show up, her drag doppelgänger certainly did.”

My first bit of activism – when I was in middle school, I saw a news story about how the state of Alaska was planning a wolf hunt, and I got all my classmates to sign a petition to the governor of Alaska. That was a long, long time ago. The more things change….




U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told the FBI she did not recall all of the briefings she received on handling sensitive information as she made the transition from her post as secretary of state, due to a concussion she suffered in 2012, according to a report released Friday.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation released a summary of the July 2 interview they conducted with Clinton, as well as other details of their investigation into her use of a private email server while heading the State Department.

My my Hillary is certainly a little rascal!


Hillary Clinton used at least eight different mobile devices to send private e-mail during her tenure as secretary of state — none of which were recovered by the FBI as part of its investigation into her communications practices as the nation’s top diplomat.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, in a heavily redacted summary of its probe released on Friday, said Clinton flouted security standards for official communications by relying on private e-mail for government business.
In addition to the eight devices she used as secretary of state, the FBI said there were at least five additional mobile devices they sought as part of their inquiry. Clinton’s lawyers said they could not provide any of the mobile devices she used. One person interviewed by the FBI said he recalled two instances in which Clinton’s devices were destroyed by “breaking them in half or hitting them with a hammer.”

She can not stop giving ammo to the opposition!

“Hillary Clinton is applying for a job that begins each day with a Top Secret intelligence briefing, and the notes from her FBI interview reinforce her tremendously bad judgment and dishonesty,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement. “Clinton’s reckless conduct and dishonest attempts to avoid accountability show she cannot be trusted with the presidency.”
