Ex-Governor Defends Pardon of Man Convicted of Child Rape, Bevin also pardoned Micah Schoettle, 41, Who Was Found Guilty of Rape, Sodomy, and Other Sexual Crimes and Sentenced to 23 Years in Prison in 2018.

Bevin, who lost to Democrat Andy Beshear last month in a close race, issued more than 400 pardons since the Nov. 5 election, according to the Kentucky Secretary of State’s office. TIMOTHY D. EASLEY, FILE AP PHOTOLOUISVILLE, KY.
Former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin defended his controversial pardon of a man who was convicted of raping a child, saying there was no physical evidence of an assault. A former medical examiner said Bevin’s remarks were factually inaccurate.
Bevin, a Republican, issued hundreds of pardons between his electoral defeat on Nov. 5 and his final day in office on Dec. 9. Several have stirred controversy, including his pardon of Patrick Baker, a man convicted of homicide and other crimes whose family held a fundraiser for Bevin last year.
Bevin also pardoned Micah Schoettle, 41, who was found guilty of rape, sodomy, and other sexual crimes and sentenced to 23 years in prison in 2018.
Bevin defended the pardon, saying there was no evidence Schoettle committed the crime.
“If you have been repeatedly sexually violated as a small child by an adult, there are going to be repercussions of that physically and medically,” Bevin said in an interview with WHAS radio on Thursday. “There was zero evidence of that.”
Kentucky’s former chief medical examiner Dr. George Nichols criticized the comments in an interview with the Courier-Journal, saying the statements were factually inaccurate.
“He not only doesn’t know the law, in my humble opinion, he clearly doesn’t know medicine and anatomy,” Nichols said.
In defending the pardon, the former governor also said another child who was said to be present during the alleged assaults denied they took place.
Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney Rob Sanders, who prosecuted the case against Schoettle, has called for an investigation into the pardon. Sanders also called Bevin “ignorant of the medicine and science in child rape cases.” Source
Are you ready for this week’s absurdity?
Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, your finances, and your prosperity…
In Kentucky, It Only Costs $20,000 To Get Away With Murder
Kentucky Governor Pardons Murderer after family’s fundraiser
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin lost reelection in November.
But the governor still had some campaign debt to retire. And it’s not easy to convince people to donate to a campaign that already lost.
Still, one family managed to raise over $20,000 for the governor at a fundraiser they held for him after he lost the election, but before he left office.
Why would they do this? Perhaps it is related to the fact that a few weeks later, Governor Bevin pardoned the fundraiser’s brother– a convicted murderer.
The brother was serving a 19-year sentence for dressing as a cop, invading a man’s home, and shooting him to death.
Believe it or not, that wasn’t the only questionable– to say the least– the pardon of the 428 issued by the governor since he lost reelection.
The governor also pardoned (1) a convicted child rapist, (2) a man who murdered his own parents, and (3) a man who hired a hitman to kill his business partner.
One of the most infamous incidents of sexual assault in the Bible is the story of Sodom and Gomorrah found in Genesis 18—19. The men of these cities were so wicked that they attempted to rape the two angels who, in human form, were visiting Lot. The men of Sodom were ready to beat Lot’s door down in order to assault his guests. Lot and his family only escaped because the angels blinded the mob and whisked Lot’s family to safety. Because of the sexual perversion of Sodom and the surrounding cities, God utterly destroyed them.
Since Wyandotte County authorities announced, with some fanfare, the April arrest of a sheriff’s deputy on child sex abuse charges, the case nearly ran aground.
Inexplicably, the Wyandotte County District Attorney’s office failed to produce any evidence at Michael Edward Mastel’s scheduled preliminary hearing last week — and hadn’t shared its evidence with Mastel’s defense attorney as required by law.
That prompted District Judge Renee Henry to reschedule the hearing for Friday and to suggest she might dismiss the case if the prosecutor hadn’t turned over evidence to the defense this week, which the district attorney’s office finally did Monday afternoon…
It’s certainly a bizarre turn of events for such a serious and high-profile case, and after Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark A. Dupree Sr.’s triumphal press conference to announce the charges April 16. At the time, Dupree heralded Child Abuse Prevention Month and exhorted the public that “when a child makes the statement, when a child finds enough gall to stand up to their abuser or to tell, let them tell. Don’t call them a liar. Don’t say ‘I don’t believe you.’ I hope the community takes away that if you hear something if you see something … One: Believe the child. Then two: Say something about it.”
Yet months later, there’s no evidence to be had at the preliminary hearing, which is held to determine if there’s merely enough proof to put someone on trial?
Jonathan Carter, the district attorney’s spokesman, explained in an email to The Star that evidence “was not available last Friday because there was a continuance.” Quite the opposite, it appears there was a continuance because there was no evidence.
In a subsequent email, Carter maintained, “The continuance was because the detective, in this case, was unavailable. … the detective had files pertaining to the case and was not available.”
Asked if there was anything said in court about missing or misplaced evidence, Carter replied, “No.” But multiple sources in the courtroom at the time have reported that the prosecutor did indeed admit to not being able to find the evidentiary file in the case, and said that the file would be recreated if need be.
Regardless, how could the day of a vital hearing in a prominent child rape case involving a sheriff’s deputy arrive without all parties being prepared? How is it the detective was unavailable and the hearing wasn’t rescheduled before its appointed time? How is it the prosecutor didn’t have copies of all the evidence in the case? How is it the defense attorney didn’t have access to that evidence until this Monday?
According to the Bible, the experience of evil is something God understands and acknowledges. God’s willingness to grant us the freedom of making our own choices also allows for the possibility of moral evil. Moral evil leads to physical evil.
God knows that evil is not combated with love and understanding.
King David Had This Down:
The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers, The Cowboys. The round pegs in the square holes misfits. The ones who see things totally differently. They’re not comfortable with the rules. And they have no respect for the status quo Pharisees “hypocrites”. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do–is ignore them”. Because they change things. They push GOD’s human race forward and that bothers the politicians and otherworldly liars. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, I see a genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. SRH….

My name is Steve Meyers and I need to share a vision and warning that the Lord showed me back in April 2007….
Many of you will ask why I waited so long to share the warning. I didn’t. I shared the story with everyone that would listen from pastors to friends to family to colleagues. Immediately following the initial vision, I called a close friend. I told him to sit down that I had something to tell him. I needed it documented as I knew this was supernatural and from God. As I witness events unfolding today, I need to share the vision again.

The Un-Godly — Those That Suppress the Truth, the social media giants built multi-billion dollar empires by giving everyone a voice, but now that they have such a dominant position on the Internet they have decided that many prominent conservative voices should be completely silenced.
Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man.
It’s interesting when you connect the dots, the masses are opposed to God’s blueprint and therefore will bring destruction upon the earth intentionally. Me, I, mine, narcissists generation will bring total destruction upon God’s people, only the chosen will survive, we live in evil times, dress appropriately, put on the full armor of God!….
Force is now the only rule remaining in deep state-controlled America. Everything else has collapsed. There is no free speech, no fair trial, no system of justice, no reasonable expectation of human rights anywhere, no fair elections, no honest news, no honest Wall Street operations, no real public education, no clean food, and threats from the elitist, the power structure that is hell-bent on bringing the New World order into the reality of the sleeping masses, get woke or get yoked, the choice still lives in the people’s hands. Next, the AntiChrist will appear with many empty promises, peace, and security, in reality, it’s the yoking of mankind, We are on the Doorstep of the Great Tribulations…
The prophet does not confuse truth with consensus. The prophet does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.
‘PORTA DOS FONDOS’ (TRANSLATES TO “BACK DOOR”) HYPER-REPROBATES…
Thanks to people like Pastor Steven Anderson and the choir of preachers he has assembled within the New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist movement there has been a resurgence in what is called the Reprobate Doctrine. A Biblical doctrine that demonstrates in scripture, that God will turn people over to their vile lifestyles as a curse, blinding them to salvation in Jesus, giving them over to a devil’s hell for eternity. A doctrine that I believe is completely Biblical and defined by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1 is unmistakably visceral language.
Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Electric Cars and Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20) The prophet does not confuse truth with consensus. The prophet does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.StevieRay Hansen
