Trump has been largely silent on stimulus since losing the election to Joe Biden. Here's why his influence may be limited among Senate Republicans as relief talks progress.

AP Photo/Patrick Semansky Trump is leaving office in January, but he appears to have lost interest in passing another stimulus package before then.

Trump may have limited sway among Republicans in ongoing relief talks. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. President Donald Trump has less than two months left in office — and he's been largely ab...

Equestrian themed Christmas decor

This pandemic has us trying to extend the amount of time we spend outside, and with Christmas approaching, I really wanted our outdoor space to be festive. I don't usually decorate our back patio for the holidays, but this year it seemed like a great idea since it is covered and still usable for quite awhile longer. Since I live on a horse farm in Kentucky, I felt it appropriate to go with an equestrian theme for this outdoor space. Now you can see where I put the "Jingle Bells" art and horse...

How ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ Proves the Need for More Diverse Stories About Appalachia (Guest Column)

As J.D. Vance’s memoir “Hillbilly Elegy” surged to the top of the New York Times Best Seller list, I was on location in Kentucky filming “Hillbilly” — a documentary that examines the long history of vicious cultural stereotyping that has plagued Appalachia.

Questions asked by Danville Christian Academy and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, quoted at "Christian school in Kentucky asks justices to intervene in dispute over in-person classes at religious schools" (SCOTUSblog).  Cameron is a Republican.

What Does 2021 Hold in Store for Horse Racing Fans?

As 2020 draws to a close, we can look back and say that it was a very strange year for fans of all sports. In the horse racing world in particular, some major events were cancelled, with others being postponed until later in the year than usual. So, what hope is there that 2021 will be a better year for fans of horse racing? Crowds Could Come Back One of the most disappointing aspects of the year was that big races across the world were held behind closed doors. At events in the US like the K...

Congress must meet Dec. 11 funding deadline to avoid another government shutdown

Before taking its Thanksgiving break, the Senate released its recommendations for the 12 appropriations bills needed to fund the government through fiscal year 2021. Back in July, the respective House committees approved all 12 of their FY21 appropriations bills. Ten of them have been passed by the full House. But officially, Uncle Sam is running right now on stop-gap money. Since the House bills didn't make it through the full legislative process before the 2021 fiscal year began on Oct. 1, a ...

That’s the rule, but Barb Chestnut has no intention of following it. “No one is going to tell me what I can or not do in my own home” said Chestnut, 60, of Shippensburg. “They do not pay my bills and they are not going to tell me what to do.” As governors and mayors grapple with an out-of-control pandemic, they are ratcheting up mask mandat...
