About

Kentucky Free Press was started in response to Kentucky’s sorely lacking print media outlets.

The news media is supposed to be our “fourth estate” of government: making sure there is transparency when TPTB (The Powers That Be) want to scurry behind closed doors. There they make laws that are not only unconstitutional–often by both Kentucky and U.S. constitutions–but benefit no one but themselves.

We are sick of it.

The view from here is that Kentucky’s government has fallen into the hands of the Bigs: Big Ag, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Dairy, Big Campaign Contributors. Big corporate interests.

Not to mention Big Legislator Pensions.

There are more and more laws every year, criminalizing everything we do with stiffer and stiffer penalties for which we pay higher and higher taxes… And what are we getting for it? More lies and more debt. Enough!

Give us a read and bear with us through the growing pains. You can subscribe here. If you don’t like what we say or how we say it, tell us.

Every letter we receive–unless it’s venomous and foul–will be displayed on the site. Actually, depending on who’s editing, even those might see the light of day.

Sally Oh falling down a rabbit hole.Editor is Sally Oh: wife, mother, blogger, homesteader, chickenista, recovering REALTOR®. That’s her falling down a rabbit hole.

Questions? Please ask. If you’d like to write for us, bring it on! Contributors and opinions are welcome from all sectors.

During the session, Kentucky legislators receive daily emails with explicit instructions. If you’d like to support KFP, become an advertiser or sponsor. Thank you. Gold, barter and bitcoin accepted.

    “The ‘original republic’-the one for which our ‘forefathers’ fought ‘face to face-hand to hand’ – exists only in the minds of academics and fundamentalist patriots. The republic created in 1789 is long gone. It died with the 600,000 Americans killed in the Civil War.”
    “The new Constitution-the one that shapes and guides the national government and disturbs the new patriots to their core-begins to take hold in the Gettysburg Address, in which Lincoln skips over the original Constitution….. This short speech functions as the Preamble to a new charter that crystallizes after the war in the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.”
    “Nationhood, equality and democracy – these are the ideas that forge the new Constitution. But Lincoln was a good lawyer, and lawyers always seek to camouflage conceptual transformations as the continuous outgrowth of language used in the past. That’s why he invoked government “by the people” to capture the new principle of democratic rule. But the significance of the people had changed. They no longer exist as the guarantors of the constitution, the bestowers of legitimacy. States and individuals can no longer set themselves apart from the nation. The people exist exclusively as voters, as office holders and as beneficiaries of legislation.” George P. Fletcher, ‘Unsound Constitution,’ The New Republic, June 23, 1997, p. 14-18.
