Trump Stops Rally To Call Coal Miner On Stage – What The Miner Quietly Says Brings The Room Down

Published

on

American writer H.L. Mencken once noted “There are some politicians who promise something for everyone. If their constituents were cannibals, they would promise them missionaries for dinner, fattened at public expense.” As it turns out politicians do occasionally keep their promises.

Former President Barack Obama was such an example. In 2008, Obama vowed that he would bankrupt the coal industry, thereby declaring his “war on coal” by imposing massive and financially crippling fines on greenhouse gas emissions. While still Senator of Illinois and running for his first term as president, Obama made the following comment to the San Fransisco Chronicle in 2008 –

“So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted…”

He kept that promise. Some of America’s largest public coal mining companies including Walter Energy, James River, Patriot Coal, Alpha Natural Resources, Arch Coal and Peabody Energy filed for bankruptcy during the Obama administration destroying billions in revenue, shareholder value, and leaving 1,000s of people with unemployed in areas of Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. What is more is Obama’s war on coal utterly decimated the economy in portions of the country, where many were not only unemployed, there were quite literally no prospects for alternative employment either.

As Forbes notes the war on coal is, in fact, a war on red states…

“Here’s today’s political quiz question: what do these five states – Rhode Island, Vermont, California, Connecticut, and Maine – have in common? Yes, they are blue states ruled by Democrats, but that’s not all. These are some of the states that use the least amount of coal – 2 percent or less- for electric power.

In fact, almost all of the states that are politically liberal and vote unfailingly Democratic ‎are low coal use states. For instance, Washington, New York, New Jersey, and Oregon are also in the top ten states least reliant on coal. Only conservative Idaho is a red state in the bottom 10 states of coal power reliance.

Meanwhile, the heavy coal-using states bleed red. West Virginia, Kentucky, and Wyoming are all states that get about 90 percent of their electric power from coal. Missouri, Utah, Indiana, and North Dakota also get more than 75 percent of their electricity from coal. ”

The current Trump administration unveiled its Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Rule to replace the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan – the centerpiece of former President Obama’s climate policy aimed at combatting climate change in August of 2018.  The Obama era legislation had sat in limbo since February 2016 after being halted by the Supreme Court as a result of several energy producing states filing suit. The Trump administration policy aims to allow states the ability to govern themselves as they see fit, granting them the ability to write their own policies governing their own power plant emissions, up to and including the ability to opt out of current federal regulations.

Now as the 2018 midterm elections grow ever closer, President Donald Trump is making his presence known. He recently appeared at a rally for Rep. Kevin Cramer in North Dakota, who as noted gets more than 75 percent of its electricity from coal.

President Trump made note of this as well and paused his campaign speech to bring an unexpected guest onstage as he commented on the resurgence of the coal industry in America.

The Daily Caller notes –

He told the story of a man who runs a coal mine and stopped to thank him for making the industry “vibrant again.”

“He said, ‘Sir, what you’ve done for the coal industry is incredible. Because we were dead, and now we’re vibrant again,’” Trump recalled.

The president then called on the man to join him onstage: “Where is he? Where is that guy? Where — shout out your name, please. Come up here.”

Trump told Secret Service to let the man onstage, and then he let the man speak.

The man told a story about the coal industry under Obama and how “the coal industry absolutely had the boot of government on its throat.”

“Many, many jobs were lost,” the coal miner said, “and many towns were destroyed by this. It was just a horrible thing. Horrible suffering happened in this country. Really for made-up reasons, I think. And what your administration does — has done — is bringing us back to life.”

The audience cheered.

He continued,  “Jobs have been created, families now have an opportunity to provide for themselves and have a great future and education, and small towns in North Dakota and other places really survived because they’ve got a great coal mine — they’ve got a great power plant.”

“It’s what America is about,” the man concluded. “It’s great to see that we again care about those things. So thank you, Mr. President.”

Trump patted the man on the back and said, “I could stand up here and talk about coal for a half an hour. And I couldn’t do as good a job as he just did. Because, seriously, he’s in the business.”

VIDEO: Migrant Caravan That Threatened To ‘Drop-In’ On Trump Tears Down Border Fence, Storms Mexico

Published

on

...

* By

Someone is putting these people up to this, I swear. It’s to close to our midterm election for it to be a coincidence.

Just a few days ago, one of the migrants told Yahoo News that they were going to “drop in” on Trump and that he would have to take them in.

Trump needs to send in the military immediately.

Breitbart is reporting:

“More than 4,000 migrants forced their way into Mexico after storming a border fence with Guatemala.

Video captured by Noticias Telemundo shows the moment when hundreds of migrants force the gate open and rush into Mexico despite officials efforts to keep the migrants out.

Mexican authorities previously vowed to turn back any migrants who did not follow immigration law.

The rush is the latest development for the caravan originating in Honduras, when approximately 1,300 migrants began an organized march to Mexico with some making their way to the U.S. Border.

The caravan caused the Mexican government to announce it would enforce immigration laws and turn back those who did not obtain a visa to travel through country. Despite the threat, the caravan grew in size to more than 4,000, pushing President Donald Trump to state he would remove all financial aid to Central American countries if the migration was not halted.

It remains unclear how many migrants were able to successfully enter Mexico by force.”

The Independent UK reported:

“Migrants in a caravan making its way north through Central America towards the US border have torn down gates and are making their way over a bridge into Mexico – with officials warning the trip will bring swift retribution from the Trump administration.

Young men in the caravan reportedly began on Friday violently tugging at a tall yellow fence in the way of the group before eventually tearing the barrier down. Men, women, and children then began rushing towards the bridge to Mexico that stands about 150 years (137 meters) away.

The fence toppling came just after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray to discuss the caravan, which started in Honduras last weekend.

“It’s a challenge that Mexico is facing, and that’s how I expressed it to Secretary Pompeo,” Mr Videgaray said in a news conference with the US secretary of state.

The Mexican government has asked for assistance from the United Nations refugee agency to help it process migrants arriving on the country’s southern border and seeking refugee status.

Processing those refugee claims could allow the Mexican government to disperse the caravan, and placate President Donald Trump, who is adamantly opposed to allowing any of the individuals into the US.

The caravan that is now at the Mexico border is composed of several thousand Honduran migrants who are seeking to escape violence and poverty in their home country. Mr Videgaray said earlier on Friday that the caravan was composed of some 4,000 people and each could present their claims to enter the country with refugee status.

“We haven’t had a caravan or group of this size seeking refuge at the same time, that’s why we’ve sought the support of the United Nations,” he said on Mexican television.

The Mexican government is taking a different tact with this caravan than a similar one that made its way north earlier this year, similarly drawing anger from Mr Trump.

Unlike that caravan, which made its way into the heartland of Mexico before officials attempted to process claims, the Mexican government this time is focusing on processing the individuals as they arrive on the border.

In response to the advancing caravan, Mr Trump has threatened to instruct the US military to “CLOSE THE SOUTHERN BORDER”, and said that he would cut aid to Central American countries where the migrants are arriving from.

It is not clear if Mr Trump is seriously considering closing the US-Mexico border, and it is not clear that he could conceivably do so, either. But, if he did, experts say that such a closure would have a major impact on the economy and ability of people to travel in and out of the US.”

Watch How Left-Wing Protester Who Harassed 9/11 Widow Reacts When Confronted By Her Large ‘Son’

Oh man, this is the best ever.

Don’t you just love it when angry, hostile left-winger, antifa types turn tail & run when the other side stands up to them.

We need more of this in America!

The Daily Caller is reporting:

Video of a left-wing protester telling an alleged 9/11 widow that her late husband should “rot in the grave” has gone viral.

The harassment of the woman took place in Portland, Oregon, during clashes between Antifa and pro-Trump factions.

The protester screamed at the woman in the video and looked to be ready for a physical confrontation. After the woman said “My husband died in 9/11,” the protester yelled “Good for him! Good. Good. NYPD were a bunch of sodomized — fucking sodomizing immigrants with their bully sticks. Your husband should probably fucking rot in the grave.”

The woman walked on.

However, the leftist protester was not so empowered when a large man approached him and asked, “Did you call my mom out?” (RELATED: Antifa Protesters Block Portland Traffic, Nearly Start Riot During Kimmons Vigil)

The protester said “What?” and then took off running.

“Why are you running?” the man yelled.

There was a standoff between the leftist and far-right protesters, but when a large group of Trump-supporting activists looked to confront him, the man who insulted the widow suddenly lost his nerve.

WATCH:

Extra footage posted on Twitter shows the same man who was harassing the woman earlier running for his life down the street as fast as he could.

A professional skateboarder was mistaken for the man in the video and received death threats.

Oregon Live reported:

Portland professional skateboarder Charlie Wilkins faced violent threats on social media Thursday after video of an Oct. 13 protest went viral that showed an Antifa protester yelling at a woman.

“Your husband, should probably … rot in the grave,” the man rants at the woman, who claimed to be a 9/11 widow.

The man in the video resembles Wilkins, but the skateboarder insists it’s not him.

He and his wife Victoria say they avoid protests and were at a pumpkin patch that day.

“I just think he’s horrible to say that to anybody,” Wilkins told KGW, referring to the protester in the video. “I would never say that to anybody.”

Brandon Farley, who shot the video of the protest, weighed in on Wilkins’ behalf, tweeting:

“I don’t want to ruin an innocent man’s life! Stop this thoughtless tirade, immediately! Get the facts! He’s not the guy in my videos. Keep searching or move on, please.”

Wilkins is a longtime professional skater, and so his image is widely available online, which is likely the reason people made the connection between him and the Antifa protester.”
