The Matter with Coal Country
National Review, by Kevin D. Williamson

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 12/15/2016 7:47:21 AM

Harlan County, Ky., has a long history with two dirty business: coal and the Democratic party. As with much of Appalachia, Kentucky’s politics are more complicated than often is understood. There are many dividing lines in Kentucky, some of them familiar: Donald Trump won the state in the 2016 presidential election, but Hillary Rodham Clinton won the state’s two most populous and urban counties, which together account for about a quarter of the state’s population. But other political borders are more Appalachia-specific, and one of those is the distinction between areas where coal is mined and those where it isn’t.

Another National Review writer working feverishly to become relevant again. No thanks Kevin. You and many others of your ilk only served to give the Dems their whine about the popular vote. The country is better off in spite of you and not because of you.

This from the yahoo that wrote the column telling rural and Rust Belt whites it was their fault for not moving to the big city.

He was against the deplorables before he was for them.

Feh.

Trump the Progressive

“Progressive” is a funny word. It is what the self-consciously center-left element in American politics started calling itself after the word “liberal” was made into a term of abuse by the center-right element in American politics, which is made up mainly of liberals. Funny little eccentricities of the language: There are among our so-called liberal Democrats few surviving liberals and a rapidly declining number of democrats. And, thanks to the efforts of such excellent gentlemen as Jonah Goldberg and Glenn Beck in explaining the ugly history of American progressivism, “progressive” has become a term of abuse, too, especially on the

´This Is Your Brain on Drugs´ Guy
Supports Marijuana Legalization

In a recent Pew Research Center survey, Americans born between 1928 and 1945 (a.k.a. the Silent Generation) were the only age cohort in which a majority still supported marijuana prohibition. But the survey also found that support for legalization within this group has quadrupled since the late 1980s, meaning that millions of Silent Generation members have changed their minds about marijuana since then. One of them, it turns out, is John Roselius, the actor best known to Americans who came of age during the Reagan administration for his role in the iconic, moronic "This Is Your Brain on Drugs" ad.

Hollywood star Ruffalo calls Obama
´immoral´ at climate rally
AFP, by Staff    Original Article

LOS ANGELES - Hollywood star Mark Ruffalo accused US President Barack Obama of hypocrisy for allowing fracking and other fossil fuel extraction while presenting himself as a green president. The Oscar-nominated "Spotlight" and "Avengers" actor spoke out at a rally in Los Angeles protesting against man-made climate change and, in particular, the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, the site of escalating protests in recent weeks. "President Obama, it is immoral for you to keep drilling in our state lands, in our federal lands, off our federal waters, while at the same time calling yourself a climate change leader," he said.

Arrest Numbers Reflect Growing
Pot Tolerance

FBI statistics released last week show that the number of marijuana arrests in the United States, after rising slightly in 2014, fell by 8 percent last year, reaching the lowest level in two decades. The total was nevertheless more than twice the number in 1991, before a nationwide cannabis crackdown that peaked in 2007. The number of marijuana arrests has fallen more or less steadily since then, reflecting a growing consensus that cannabis consumers should not be treated as criminals.

Build the wall
Washington Post, by Robert J. Samuelson    Original Article

Just because Donald Trump isn’t qualified to be president — and just because much of his agenda is hateful and undesirable — doesn’t mean that everything he says is automatically wrong. Some of his ideas deserve consideration and enactment. One of these is building a wall across our southern border with Mexico. It has been ridiculed as a monstrosity and a colossal waste of money. The theory of the wall is that it keeps out low-wage workers and, thereby, raises the wages of U.S. workers, including earlier Hispanic arrivals. They are most vulnerable to additional Hispanic workers, because their skills

The terrorist hijackings of four airline flights and subsequent crashes into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania took place 15 years ago this weekend. We still mourn the nearly 3,000 Americans who were murdered then and share the sorrow of those who lost family and friends. Those attacks, however, changed our country in ways that have significantly undermined our cherished liberties.The indignity of imposing TSA security theater at airports is the least of it. Security checkpoints are everywhere requiring citizens to show ID and undergo screenings by metal detectors in order to enter practically

It was reported last week that President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team had sent the Department of Energy a list of 74 questions. In that list, the DOE was asked to provide names of employees who had worked on President Barack Obama’s climate change policy. This action brought up concerns that the incoming POTUS and his administration may be looking to not only dismantle many of the actions Obama has set forth to study and combat climate change, but to also push out federal employees and contractors who had worked on those programs. Scientists have signed petitions to call on Trump to

Trump Won the Election Fair and Square —
That Doesn’t Mean the Russians Played No Part

The Russians did not decide the election, but their attempt to influence it merits serious attention from all parties. Of course Donald Trump thinks it’s “ridiculous” to claim the Russians rigged the election for him. Even if Vladimir Putin confessed to the crime on Russia Today, Trump would not believe it, because to do so is not in his nature. I do not want to shock the reader, but Trump has a very high opinion of himself and a tendency to reject evidence that contradicts that opinion, combined with an eagerness to find corroboration of his self-regard wherever possible. For

Obama told Daily Show host Trevor Noah, a South African, that America has not overcome its bitter past. Via Grabien: “You know, my general theory is that, if I was clear in my own mind about who I was, comfortable in my own skin, and had clarity about the way in which race continues to be this powerful factor in so many elements of our lives,” Obama said. “But that it is not the only factor in so many aspects of our lives, that we have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and

Pelosi Daughter Blows Up on FBN Host Over Election Sabotage Plot Christine Pelosi and 49 other Democrat electors are demanding a briefing from U.S. intelligence officials on any ongoing investigations into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. Pelosi believes Electoral College is a deliberative body and not a representative body. (Photo) Here’s part of the exchange. Christine Pelosi: You’re damn right I want to see that information… Neal Cavuto: She Lost. She lost. Christine Pelosi: No, I don’t know that you can say that… Neal Cavuto: You’re trying to get electors who are bound to the Republican candidate, Republican states to switch

America is held hostage by flyover states

The predominant narrative coming out of the 2016 presidential post-election analysis is: The flyover states have spoken. A flyover state is the huge region between the coasts. As opposed to the eastern seaboard, northern post-industrial states and Pacific Ocean states. They’re overwhelmingly Republican, stanchly conservative, regressive right wing, evangelical Christian and working class, well, the loudest, most ill-informed of them are. The term wasn’t commonly used in a political manner until recently with the emergence of the Tea Party and the election of Obama. A visit to Wichita, Kan., isn’t on the bucket list of many Americans. Whereas most travelers fly over

Everybody could see Hillary Clinton was cooked in Iowa. So when, a week-and-a-half out, the Service Employees International Union started hearing anxiety out of Michigan, union officials decided to reroute their volunteers, giving a desperate team on the ground around Detroit some hope. They started prepping meals and organizing hotel rooms. SEIU — which had wanted to go to Michigan from the beginning, but been ordered not to — dialed Clinton’s top campaign aides to tell them about the new plan. According to several people familiar with the call, Brooklyn was furious. Turn that bus around, the Clinton team ordered SEIU. Those volunteers

While appearing on a show that lowers the collective IQ of the nation by at least one standard deviation, The View, Ali Wentworth, wife of ABC News Objective News Anchor™ George Stephanopoulos explained what Election Night was like at the Stephanopoulos/Wentworth home: “It involves my 14-year-old getting upset about the election and screaming ‘NO ABORTION!’ really loudly, and I was like, ‘you haven’t kissed a boy yet. Don’t use that term so flippantly.’” If you’re wondering why the left has gone insane, perhaps it’s because they were raised to be insane, and they’re raising their children the same way. Why
