Amazon/gift card scam hitting Maysville, #Kentucky
MPD said the scam was a phone call. The scammer told the victim that they were calling with the #socialSecurity office & told they were being investigated due to fraudulent use of social security funds
The Maysville Police Depts phone number was spoofed & they “told the victim they were speaking with Sgt. Scott with MPD."
“We ought to be in the #Suicideprevention #business and not further #harming #kids who are going through too much already,” he said, adding that he did “the right thing” by #vetoing the #Republican #antitrans #omnibus #bill.
"That's what my faith teaches me," Governor Andy Beshear told MSNBC's Jen Psaki.

Went to the John James Audubon state park museum today. Does a great job of celebrating all that was good about Audubon, which is deserved. But nada about how he not only enslaved people & broke up their families, but also was an outspoken advocate for slavery. & nothing in the park about the people there before the European descendants.

LEX18News has posted some drone footage 👍but hard to tell where this is relative to mapped roads and waterways. 😕
Would expect county, state, fed authorities to have an official video made public. County guy said derailment along Renfro Creek which, according to my map exploration is much farther upstream; thought accident area creek was Roundstone.

Re: #Livingston area #RockcastleCounty #Kentucky #CSX train #derailment, sulphur spill, #evacuation, #emergency declaration: conspicuously absent from official govt, railroad news releases, media reports:
a) specific map location, e.g. nearby road junction, road and / or railroad milemarker
b) helicopter or drone footage or even stills
Media should get after this!.
Secrecy suspicious; bad look😕 (BTW, especially on the day after the suspicious JFK assassination, secret records controversies).😕
The train wreck is in Livingston, #Kentucky, & it spilled molten sulfur which can turn into sulfur dioxide when on fire 🔥 (hence the evacuation).

CSX (train operator) is providing lodging for displaced residents, as well as paying restaurants to help feed the evacuated families.
😳 Authorities encouraged people in central #Kentucky to evacuate on the eve of Thanksgiving after more than a dozen freight train cars derailed, spilling molten sulfur and sparking a fire that was still only 50% contained by Thursday morning, officials said.
"Coal Miner's Daughter" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter #LorettaLynn. Considered Lynn's #signatureSong, it was originally released as a single in 1970 and became a number one hit on the #Billboard country chart. It was later released on an album of the same name. Produced by #OwenBradley, the song tells the story of Lynn's coal-mining father in rural #Kentucky during the #GreatDepression. Lynn, who was born in 1932.
Morning rage: Writing for "Forward Kentucky," which bills itself as "the progressive voice for Kentucky politics," some asshole named Ken Wolf enumerates the positive sides of climate change.
Most of these are opportunities for people with a few extra dollars to invest in industries that will boom during global ecological collapse: bottled water, bomb shelters, construction companies, solar, and hyroponics.

This is fascinating poll, but I'd offer a simpler metric: if locals say "y'all," you're not in the Midwest. Also, sorry Louisvillians, but Kentucky is most definitely not part of the MW. You've got yourself an underrated city up there on the Ohio River, but for better or worse the rest of us are culturally closer to Tennessee or Alabama than any Union state. #kentucky

Numerous forest #fires are burning in eastern #Kentucky, leading authorities to call for assistance from other states. Firefighters were coming all the way from Oregon and Idaho to help.
I shared my thoughts and observations about last night's #election results across the nation.
It has invigorated me to keep fighting. Our time will come, but we need warriors who will be there to see it through just like they did in #Kentucky. And #Ohio. And #Virginia. And #Pennsylvania And...
Thoughts on Election Results
US-Bundesstaaten: Wie die Abtreibungsdebatte die Wähler mobilisiert
Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky: Bei Abstimmungen in diesen US-Staaten haben die Demokraten mehrere Erfolge erzielt. Vor allem die heftige Diskussion um das Thema Abtreibung bewegte die Wähler. Die Partei dürfte weiter darauf setzen. Von Katrin Brand.
"Daniel Cameron was a rising star in the Republican Party until he decided to throw his lot in with Donald Trump. I mean, let’s face it, Donald Trump is political and electoral poison down ballot. Down ballot, his endorsement has led to Republican defeats.…
Daniel Cameron made a huge mistake by embracing Donald Trump and selling his soul to him…."
~ Chris Christie
"But instead, Democrats did fine. In fact, they did better than fine, and then even better than that. Tuesday looked a lot like a blue wave, with Democrats romping to victory in blue and purple states and overperforming dramatically in red ones."
But look for the media to keep relentlessly flogging the "But, Biden!" narrative, flogging pseudo-claims that "the economy" is tanking under Biden — when it's not doing so.
"Tuesday night’s results are difficult to square with the 'Biden and Democrats are doomed' narrative. In an off-year election, with the incumbent president’s approval rating mired below 40 percent, you would normally expect the president’s party to be stomped, crushed, spindled, and obliterated."
~ Noah Berlatsky
"Ohio decisively passed a constitutional amendment guaranteeing access to abortion, while those in ruby-red Kentucky reelected a Democratic governor who aggressively attacked his opponent for supporting the state’s near-total ban on the procedure." https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2023/11/07/abortion-ohio-kentucky-virginia-elecitons/
*Letters from an American*
Wieder Wahltag in #USA!
Allen Unkenrufen zum Trotz erringt Präsident #Biden’s Partei wichtige Wahl- und Abstimmungssiege.
Im republikanisch regierten #Ohio werden weitgehende reproduktive Rechte in der Verfassung festgeschrieben. Das von den Republikanern erlassene fast totale Abtreibungsverbot wird aufgehoben.
In #Virginia erobern die Demokraten beide Parlamentskammern.
Im tiefroten #Kentucky gewinnt der demokratische Gouverneur Andy Beshear die Wiederwahl. (1/5)
Wenn ich mal einen Blick auf die Wahlergebnisse in den #USA von gestern schaue, dann sind die gar nicht so übel.
Beshear(D) gewinnt erneut #Kentucky, bleibt Gouverneur. Er hatte sich gegen die transfeindliche Gesetzgebung in seinem Staat gestellt, und sei Veto eingelegt.
Der Gouverneur (R) von Mississippi wurde leider wiedergewählt, aber auch mit keinem großen Vorsprung.
#Abortion Rights Power Democratic Wins in #Kentucky and #Virginia
Voters decided who will run the state government in four states on Tuesday, with Democrats also making gains in #NewJersey and the GOP keeping hold of #Mississippi.
Well #WTF. Overjoyed...not about analysis failing, but #Voters winning. Not sure if the post hoc will yield anything useful . That generally would be much more troublesome than it feels right now. It will take *weeks* to straighten out...but whatever. #Ohio #Kentucky #Pennsylvania
#RhodeIsland #NewYork #Virginia
America rejects the MAGA agenda.
Democrats retain control of Virginia state Senate. Will block Glenn Youngkin’s proposed abortion ban.
Danica Roem is now Virginia's first transgender Senator.
Democrats retain the governor's office in Kentucky.
Ohio votes to protect reproductive rights.
NBC: Republican Russell Coleman wins the race for #Kentucky attorney general, NBC News projects, keeping the office in GOP hands.
On November 7, one of the most popular governors in the country is up for reelection.
Governor Andy Beshear is being challenged by Republican Attorney General and Mitch McConnell protégé Daniel Cameron in #Kentucky. Beshear has a strong record built on expanding access to health care, securing clean drinking water, funding for high-speed internet, and creating jobs.
Please help if you can.
Fight for Kentucky: Get Out the Vote Phone Bank:
Mt. Zion Church, Richmond, Kentucky.
This church, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was dedicated in 1852. Ten years later, on August 30, 1862, it went from "sanctuary to surgery" when it became an emergency hospital during the Battle of Richmond, the largest win for the Confederates over the Union during the American Civil War.
The weather was in the high 90s as hundreds of soldiers, injured and/or dying, flooded the church and its grounds. Those that died were carted a few miles north to downtown Richmond where they were buried in a mass grave. Those that survived, recovered onsite or were taken to the homes of local residents for care.
"One Indiana soldier remember seeing amputated arms and legs thrown from the south side rear window of this building to the yard outside."
While hard to see now, there are cannonball scars on the outside of the building (not pictured). Cannonballs and other wartime paraphernalia is still found in and around the church today.
