Donald Trump Poaching Blue-Collar Dems — ‘Uprising in the Rust Belt’

by Breitbart News
June 25, 2016

The cover story of Politico Magazine profiles coal workers in Pennsylvania who feel Donald Trump is their best choice out of the presumptive presidential nominees.
From Politico:

CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa.—Donald Trump’s road to the White House begins here: on a four-lane highway, just east of Pittsburgh, past the roadside taverns, burned-out gas stations, and parking lots choked with weeds, up into the dark fingers of the Allegheny Mountains, and then down into the valley that was once home to steelworkers, coal miners and party-line Democrats.

Regis Karlheim once counted himself among that third group. A farmer’s son, Karlheim grew up doing two things: voting Democratic and growing potatoes. “It was a lot of good years in potatoes,” he said. “Everybody and their brother grew potatoes in Cambria County.”

Today Karlheim—blue-eyed, 58, and graying around the temples—spends his days behind the wheel of a giant coal truck, but the declining coal industry has hit Karlheim hard. He’s making $10,000 less than he was just three years ago, he said, and he’s worried about his mortgage. “How do you make those payments?” he asked. This spring, after years of not voting for anyone, in either party, in any presidential election, his anxiety compelled him to cast a vote in the Democratic primary. For Bernie Sanders.

    The Denocrat party has destroyed the jobs that paid the bills for many of their rank and file voters. For all their talk and TV propaganda the agenda of today’s Democrat party is simple–they want to destroy America as a land of opportunity. Today’s Democrat party looks wistfully to the former Soviet Union as a model for what they want our nation to become–unproductive, poor, and under the control of a central government ruled by the wealthy elite, which they will be.

    trump is the most feared politician of our modern time. welfare and food card free loaders are shaking in their shoes. if you give any thing away for free they will line up to the gates of hell but if you offer people a job the line will shrink to nothing. re-build bridges and highways in america is all i hear but no one especially a politician wants to put welfare receipients to work to help with these projects. the roman empire which is america is about to sink under debt and lazy young people that expect a hand out.

      Those who entered OUR Country Illegally are criminals, and non-citizens and are not legally “Entitled” to anything….At the last count “President” Obama had broken our laws in excess of seventy times.
      On his last day, if not before he needs to go on Trial for his crimes against OUR Country!

      1. john jones says:

        brexit is just a good example why we are on the verge of an uprising in this country. letting illegals flood the country to get a free welfare check and food card only helps democrats keep their seat in congress. we have a serious problem coming soon with medicare and social security the 2 programs that americans have worked for many years to receive and now liberal left leaning whimping democrats led by bernie sanders,pelosi and harry reid want to destroy and bankrupt those programs hard working americans deserve not some bimbo’s from across the border that has never paid a penny in taxes. i have no problem with good citizen’s coming to this country that will be productive but not criminals that are intent on destroying the american way. obama has put this country into a situation that it will never recover from. he is the biggest idiot to ever be the president of the u.s.

Many blacks are voting for Trump. Many Democrats are voting for Trump. What’s Hillary’s plan for the American people? So far she has supported the 1%ers. She supports the very people you libterds hate. She gets her money from the Stock Market and big banks. She gets her money from Muslim countries funneled to the US illegally.

  • tim says:

    This should make you more aware of obama’s threat to “Transform America”.
    I Did Not write the paragraph below, I have not seen the movie, this was sent by a friend.
    it’s very scary.
    We went to see the movie “London is Falling” and it’s a must to go and see because the muslim’s were getting things set up and ready
    for years before they attacked us…………………the movie made me almost throw up as it is exactly what is going on here and now.
    And all the top men were muslim in the government and were putting everything in place for the right time. God help us.
    I wonder if we will ever see another election.
    This information has all been checked, then double checked… it is 100% Correct.
    That’s why there is such an alarm within US government, since Trump’s statement about temporary suspension of migration of Muslims to US
    till US authorities make sure there is a proper concept of safe penetration of US territory.
    People are stunned to learn that the head of the U.S. CIA is a Muslim!
    Do hope this wakes up some!
    Until it hits you like a ton of bricks read it again, until you understand!
    *We now have a Muslim government!
    John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia.
    Obama’s top adviser, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.
    Hillary Clinton’s top adviser, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are still involved in the
    now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt!
    Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim .
    Homeland Security Adviser, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim .
    Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Mu slim.
    Obama’s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim .
    Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim .
    ********Nancy Pelosi*********announced she will appoint Rep Andre Carson, D-Ind, a Muslim , as the first Muslim lawmaker on
    the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, of all things! It would make Carson the first Muslim to serve
    on the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East! He has he suggested that U.S. schools
    should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the Quran!!!
    Last but not least, our closet Muslim himself, Barack Hussein Obama.
    It’s questionable if Obama ever officially took the oath of office when he was sworn in.
    He did not repeat the oath properly to defend our nation and our Constitution.
    Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again, in private. Yeah, right.
    CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a Bible??
    Valarie Jarret wrote her college thesis on how she wanted to change America into a Muslim friendly nation and she is a Obama top advisor!
    Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur’an, NOT the Bible!
    Conservative Congresswoman Michele Bachman, R-MN, was vilified and verbally tarred and feathered by Democrats
    when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government!
    Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation,
    supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being
    perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East!
    The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he’s become!
    Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to destroy us! It can only get worse!
    In his book Obama said, “if it comes down to it, I will side with the Muslims”.
    If you fail to pass this one on, there’s something wrong……somewhere!
    Common sense doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden!

    America has ZERO problems with coal workers in Pennsylvania. Stay safe, live free, raise healthy families, drink clean water and breath the clean air.


    America and the coal workers have a major problem with the owners that choose the cheapest and most harmful ways to mine coal that purposely put miners lives and health in harms way, lie about it when caught and threaten injured miners that talk.

    America and the coal workers have a major problem with the owners that chose the cheapest and most harmful ways to mine that pollute the land, air and water, lie about it when caught and threaten injured Americans that talk.

    America and the coal workers have another problem with power plants that burn it in the cheapest and dirtiest ways possible regardless of the harm it causes, lie about it when caught and threaten injured Americans that talk.

    America and the coal workers have a serious problem with Congress and EPA that were bribed, er, I mean were given unlimited secret corporate campaign contributions to look the other way, lie about it when caught and IGNORE or threaten injured Americans that talk.

    Yet it is the coal worker that is held up as a “Political Canary” to distract naive readers away from corporate greed and Congressional complicity.

    1. studi30 says:

      What a load of Shiite. The EPA established guidelines in the 70s for preventing pollution from coal fired plants. OSHA has provided the guidelines for safety of coal workers. If the job was so dangerous why would the miners want to keep on working there? 50% of our electricity comes from coal. The coal workers are union. The unions are the wealthiest organizations with a stranglehold on their workers.

        Coal plants are the nation’s top source of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the primary cause of global warming. In 2011, utility coal plants in the United States emitted a total of 1.7 billion tons of CO21. A typical coal plant generates 3.5 million tons of CO2 per year2.

        Burning coal is also a leading cause of smog, acid rain, and toxic air pollution. Some emissions can be significantly reduced with readily available pollution controls, but most U.S. coal plants have not installed these technologies.

        Sulfur dioxide (SO2): Coal plants are the United States’ leading source of SO2 pollution, which takes a major toll on public health, including by contributing to the formation of small acidic particulates that can penetrate into human lungs and be absorbed by the bloodstream. SO2 also causes acid rain, which damages crops, forests, and soils, and acidifies lakes and streams. A typical uncontrolled coal plant emits 14,100 tons of SO2 per year. A typical coal plant with emissions controls, including flue gas desulfurization (smokestack scrubbers), emits 7,000 tons of SO2 per year.

        Nitrogen oxides (NOx): NOx pollution causes ground level ozone, or smog, which can burn lung tissue, exacerbate asthma, and make people more susceptible to chronic respiratory diseases. A typical uncontrolled coal plant emits 10,300 tons of NOx per year. A typical coal plant with emissions controls, including selective catalytic reduction technology, emits 3,300 tons of NOx per year.

        Particulate matter: Particulate matter (also referred to as soot or fly ash) can cause chronic bronchitis, aggravated asthma, and premature death, as well as haze obstructing visibility. A typical uncontrolled plan emits 500 tons of small airborne particles each year. Baghouses installed inside coal plant smokestacks can capture as much as 99 percent of the particulates.

        Mercury: Coal plants are responsible for more than half of the U.S. human-caused emissions of mercury, a toxic heavy metal that causes brain damage and heart problems. Just 1/70th of a teaspoon of mercury deposited on a 25-acre lake can make the fish unsafe to eat. A typical uncontrolled coal plants emits approximately 170 pounds of mercury each year. Activated carbon injection technology can reduce mercury emissions by up to 90 percent when combined with baghouses. ACI technology is currently found on just 8 percent of the U.S. coal fleet.

        Other harmful pollutants emitted annually from a typical, uncontrolled coal plant include approximately:

        114 pounds of lead, 4 pounds of cadmium, other toxic heavy metals, and trace amounts of uranium. Baghouses can reduce heavy metal emissions by up to 90 percent3.

        720 tons of carbon monoxide, which causes headaches and places additional stress on people with heart disease.

        220 tons of hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds (VOC), which form ozone.

        225 pounds of arsenic, which will cause cancer in one out of 100 people who drink water containing 50 parts per billion.

        Air pollution from coal-fired power plants

        This article is part of the Coal Issues portal on SourceWatch, a project of CoalSwarm and the Center for Media and Democracy. See here for help on adding material to CoalSwarm.

        Air pollution from coal-fired power plants is large and varied and contributes to a significant number of negative environmental and health effects. When coal is burned to generate electricity, the combustion releases a combination of toxic chemicals into the environment, and thus the human body. A November 2009 report on the effects of coal by the Physicians for Social Responsibility found that coal combustion affects not only the human respiratory system, but also the cardiovascular and nervous system.[1]

        A 2011 report by the the American Lung Association found that coal-fired power plants produce more hazardous air pollution in the United States than any other industrial pollution sources.[2] A 2004 report by the Clean Air Task Force estimated that soot pollution from power plants contributes to 24,000 premature deaths, 38,200 non-fatal heart attacks, and tens of thousands of hospital visits and asthma attacks each year.[3]

        Not everyone likes intentional coal pollution and industry lies, fuk0ff!

        Coal generates 44% of our electricity, and is the single biggest air polluter in the U.S.

        A typical (500 megawatt) coal plant burns 1.4 million tons of coal each year. As of 2012, there are 572 operational coal plants in the U.S. with an average capacity of 547 megawatts.

            1….solve the needs (Jobs?)

            2….insure life (Abortion?)

            3….Liberty, .pursuit of happiness ( financial solvency, balanced budget, controls of printing extra money., paying our debts, protecting us from terrorists, a intelligent healthcare system???)

            Thnx for you patience in advance


          5. DrBillLemoine says:

            At first I though you were facetious. But weighing the two parties from an early age (I grew up in a republican office holders household), I switched after Goldwater as Dems consistently keep people in mind while the others heed incomes, profits, status, and those encourage isolation/self-sufficiency. I’m a people person from that thinking, teacher education, and administrative successes. No Republican since Eisenhower was progressive; all Dems are. With today’s obstructive conservatives progress is slowing to a trickle–Obamacare, military ‘boots’ withdrawals, LGBTQ legislation, peaceful coexistence in a smaller, faster, more connected world. Elect Hillary and compatible congress and watch the ‘progress’ made for average Americans. The last time was 2010 with Obamacare where 16 million additional people have healthcare, medical practice is improved and cost increases are slowing.
            Watch with Democrats for infrastructure expansion (jobs, wages up), healthcare expansion (lower costs for drugs and primary care, more people alive), and socioeconomic increases (minimum living wages, equal pay for equal work, support for worker collective action) that open up pursuit of happiness.
            You must however dig yourself to avoid propaganda from anybody that counters your best interests personally.

          6. Linda Duliin says:

            I am sorry Dr.Bill, but I have to disagree with you on Obamacare. I’m on the Medicaid program and it has made my life much more difficult due to the number of physicians who no longer take Medicaid because it pays so poorly. Even Doctors who are on the list saying they will accept Medicaid often refuse to see you. Whenever the Doctors that I do have order something that I NEED it is a real struggle to get Medicaid to approve it! I have Multiple Sclerosis and my Neurologist orders MRI’Is on a fairly frequent basis, and EVERY TIME WE HAVE TO go through the whole process again as if it was the first time.

            And if any of my other Doctors ask or something that Medicaid doesn’t seem to understand – we have to go through it again! Dr. Bill I have 10 different Doctors in several areas of specialization. It is so frustrating to have to re-invent the wheel every darn time! And when Obamacare first started, I lost all of my Doctors except my PCP! He has been with me through this whole process and helped me find all my new Doctors!

            So please don’t tell me how much Obamacare has helped people OK? I have friends who have Obamacare and CAN’T USE IT due to the ridiculously high co-payments and the equally high amount you have to spend before the insurance kicks in! So again PLEASE DON’T TELL ME HOW GREAT OBAMACARE IS!!!!

          7. DrBillLemoine says:

            A sad tale repeated many times. Medicaid is a state program with much waste, fraud and abuse the governors won’t correct because all totaled it brings much federal money to balance their budgets. Start your political campaign in your state capitol to make changes you suggest. As for Obamacare, we can guess you are in a red state with governor opposing federal money and regulations, but causing you grief. Depending on your income, you may not pay the penalty for dropping it. Higher income means your healthcare costs are not rising as fast as they would without ACA. Eventually with expansion, cost savings will materialize better and bigger. Most insurance including Medicare has deductibles; maybe you should raise yours to cut the cost. That’s why even my Medicare requires a supplemental insurance so now I pay nothing for copays. I DO say ACA is better than 1. people rejected from any coverage, 2. people dropped from coverage for their high expenses, 3. hospitals stopping revolving door ‘cures’ that aren’t, 4. very sick people able to get insurance at all, and much more in benefits. You make too much money, live in the wrong state, have a poor governor, have unreasonable expectations for costs getting older, or something I don’t know. I think it’s an improvement considering congress could fine-tune it with hearings but don’t care about your troubles.

          8. Linda Duliin says:

            I have MEDICAID not Medicare! There are no deductibles in Medicaid! The deductibles I was talking about are friends and some co-workers of my husband. And regardless of there income levels all of them have said that the deductible for their policy is so high that they can’t use the insurance as many of them don’t spend enough to fulfill the requirement for the deductible in any one year!

            So tell me what good is insurance if you can’t use it? Yeah the statistics look great with more people enrolled – but if you don’t enroll – They fine the heck out of You! Boy, knowing that My insurance payment is a tax really makes me feel better!

            For all the problems that Medicaid has not paying a tax for my enrollment is a real blessing! And we know it is a tax because The Supreme Court said so!


          9. DrBillLemoine says:

            Yes, you said Medicaid. The multiple sources of healthcare could be combined for bigger savings with single payer like Canada has. That’s Bernie’s goal.
            Meanwhile get some professional advice on coverages. I don’t know enough to help you. And remember these are basic programs in case you aren’t rich enough to self-insure. Join the middle class; just stop voting/supporting the fat cat republicans who stymie all improvements–have for 50 years, won’t hold hearings today. The issue is obstruction, not ‘taxation’.

          10. downdraft says:

            Thanks, Dr…but I find still I’m not able to evaluate how “Progressive” politics has yet to resolve our problems…may it has been the cause of some of it???
            But I’ll keep working on it and decide how I CAN MAKE A RESPONSIBLE VOTE…one that might help from whomever I vote for…and support it with performance I guess….politician just don’t demonstrate a concern for the country…just the party…

          11. DrBillLemoine says:

            Trump is pretty much the same every rally, with a free wheeling train-of-thought presentation like improve theater. There isn’t much meat to them like policies for anybody. It’s all about him, who is running to enhance his personal brand, not the nation evidently.
            But Hillary has aims and plans backed by white papers on every subject developed over years of experience foreign and domestic. Nixon, the crook, did the same and steamrolled to victory in 1968. Despite his personal failings, the country advanced. Hill’s the one.

          13. downdraft says:

            Nice answer Dr,,,keeps you from assuming any responsibility if things “go south”…I have to remember that ploy…

            but just what is a “progressive”?


          14. CharlieSeattle says:

            Stalin and Lenin are dead. I am curious also.

        3. Luke says:

          You know the fat cats aren’t going to foot the bill for the socialist in this country who want free stuff and to live off of them like parasites, they’re not as stupid as those who believe that bullsh*t..
          And BTW, you never mentioned how hillary was going to help the working people and increase capitalism to support that…I know of NO liberal policy that ever favored the working people in this country..

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            Not willingly will fat cats give up what they have already bought. It will take Bernie’s idealism and Hillary’s progressive pragmatism to get back Eisenhower’s 90% taxes on them. BTW workers don’t want free stuff, just paying jobs, disposable income and respectable living/retirement. You are confusing welfare deadbeats with middle class Americans. Drill down and get to reality and truth.
            Simply improving infrastructure that also benefits the fat cats will get good jobs and upgrade the nation’s old roads, bridges, while hardening utilities from cyber attacks. Private industry with public support fundswise is common practice in the past, a boon to capitalism.
            Kidding about liberal policies for workers??? Your party stifles wages, benefits and opportunities, all formerly secured by unions.

          2. Luke says:

            You’re wrong if you think the rich will part with their money and even if they did it would not be enough..These people can protect their money from 90% tax, they’re smarter than the liberal thief..
            And I’m not confusing the working people with deadbeats, the deadbeats want free stuff, it’s the reason you want a 90% tax rate, for them, not working people. But what you don’t seem to understand is that jobs for working people will disappear if you try and tax the rich..Your confusion no doubt.
            liberal policies do not help the working people, not one bit, only conservative policies of capitalism promote growth and income..

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            If the rich are Americans and enjoy all their rights and responsibilities, they will pay; Ike taxed them at 90%.
            Smarter fat cats still have only one vote per person.
            More taxes are for infrastructure, sustainable power expansion, living wages and other laws to promote the general welfare or pursuit of happiness as promised by the Founders.
            Tell me how higher taxes means less jobs. It never was like that before.
            I’ve just mentioned several things that help working people. You have no rebuttal of substance, just lies.
            BTW it was your fat cat capitalism on Wall St. that crashed the economy in 2008 and killed the middle class worker. Try learning the facts.

          4. Luke says:

            You’re wrong and I’m tired of explaining to you. And BTW chump, you never posted one policy the liberals have introduced the past 40 years that would help the working people and taxing the rich is stupid to even believe you could do it..
            But JICYMI, raising taxes has always hurt jobs but helped the liberal trash for a short time until the country could be restored by a Rep., IE, Ronald Reagan replacing that loon jimma carter..

          5. DrBillLemoine says:

            Minimum wage raises are a basic progressive (the correct term, not liberal) action. Even Grover Norquist, the no-tax pledge guru, would agree congress can deal with taxes and did. Unless they pay more workers can hardly improve their lot. Is that what you want, ye of little faith?
            Raising taxes on the super rich with tax rates, or surcharges, has not hurt jobs. It’s small business that creates American jobs FYI. Big corporations create jobs abroad today and that must change too.
            It’s your idol Reagan who killed liberal policies including wage increases that have stagnated for a generation. Congratulations buying the conservative propaganda; too bad if you are a worker. Everybody has good and bad points, if you just look.

          You know where thinking like Hank Johnson’s, the belief that an Island might capsize due to over population! or Nancy Pelosi who, though given the awesome responsibility of Speaker of the US House, believes that the proper procedure for legislation is to pass it, then read it, is the standard thought process!

Never Happen, but the Liberals, Progressives, Marxists, (or whatever phony title they utilize), Paint America, and Americans as “the Bad Guys”? Be careful what you say, if we’re lucky Dr. Bill can move there and “solve” all of their problems! America is not perfect, but it is the BEST the world has to offer, bar none, those that don’t agree with that need to go “Transform” some

      Hildabeast a Capitalist? You must be delusional. The Hildabeast hates Capitalism.

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        Nonsense. It’s only through capitalism that people and corporations and nations have enough disposable cash to fund her foundation, keep our government going and create donors to campaigns. Nonsense.

        1. studi30 says:

          Funny! Hillary and her far left liberal cohorts are always attacking corporations, big business and so on. So which is it? What you posted is what the right believes.

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            We are all capitalists AND liberals–just read your Constitution’s preamble. Life is complicated; you should think more about it, especially politics.

          2. studi30 says:

            I’ve been thinking about politics for a long time. Life is only complicated if you make it so. I was living in London in 1974 when an IRA bomb blew up Madame Tussaud’s waxworks. The explosion shook the flat my cousin and I were sleeping in. I arrived in Israel in 1973 eight days after the Yom Kippur War started. I lived in South Africa during apartheid. As an American I have seen more than any thousand Americans combined. The framers of the Constitution were far from liberals. The Constitution was almost not written as the northern states wanted the southern states to give up slavery. Many weeks were spent until both sides agreed to put off the discussion for another time. The most important thing at the time was a Constitution.

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            You are the very reason, by your ‘complicated life’ rejection, why inexperienced Trump must not be elected. The world is infinitely more complex than you like or want and I’m seeing by his vagueness he doesn’t have a clue.
            About the founders, they were complex to the max, a trait today of ‘liberals’, but not you. Actually T. Jefferson, a southern slave holder, wrote the Declaration which principles undergird the Constitution and set its aims, defense and general welfare (well being). You are confusing that document with the Constitution which was agreed by north and south because they wanted a stronger central government, not a slavery issue at all. You must retake your civics class from 9th grade; how did you miss these points?

          4. studi30 says:

            Numbnuts we were talking about the Constitution , not the Declaration. What I posted stands. Go to Williamsburg and learn something. My wife of 33+ years and I are comfortably retired living on two SS checks from over 40 years each of us working. I receive an IRA check each month from a 401K that I rolled over. Our house, two cars and 22″ travel trailer are paid off. You are the one who never took a class of any kind in your life. I know how complex the world is and know that liberals aren’t sophisticated enough to understand. Your support of the Hildabeast shows how gullible you libterds are.

          5. DrBillLemoine says:

            If you aren’t knowledgeable, resist learning every day, seek simplicity, you won’t know the links between our founding documents and today’s complexity which they cover generally. There’s a continuous thread.
            When considering capitalism of political parties and their leaders, I don’t omit crucial details. That’s where your lack of complexity kicks in and blinds you to options. Another lack of complexity by you is not seeing that liberals we call progressives are responsible for advancing the nation beyond Williamsburg to modern America. Simple as you claim to be, you enjoy your trailer home, government checks, regulation-protected alternate income source and classroom knowledge that bespeak of modern living thanks to progressives (liberals, if you prefer). Trump however represents extreme me-ism while Hillary represents the vast majority of Americans. Expect your simple votes in November for Hillary. Remember, to live like a Republican vote Democratic.

          6. studi30 says:

            You aren’t even intelligent enough to understand the simple language of the time. The Constitution was written so all could understand. Actually the Colonists were simple folk who had conservative ideals about God and country, not like the godless, anti gun morons you Hildabeast supporters are. Yes numbnuts I didn’t work for all I have, it was the Federal government who gave it to me. I know because Obozo said so right?

          7. DrBillLemoine says:

            Actually the framers were the most highly educated, well travelled and cosmopolitan members of their colonies/States. Their thinking and language was anything but simple including the background reading and philosophical understandings of their time. Colonials in the main were simple but not writers of anything, scrabbling to make a living like many poor Americans of today. And you also misunderstand that many of us progressives are quite devout followers of our religions, Gospel in my case. We are nothing if not thoughtful and seeking a better way in pursuit of our life, liberty and happiness. You still fail to see the significance of government in your life and lifestyle in retirement. Pity. If you thought about things instead of seeking mindless simplicity, you’d be a liberal yourself. Have a great time enjoying the fruits of American citizenship and realize it was liberals from educated founders through progressives like Hillary and me who made your 21st century life possible.

          8. studi30 says:

            Your long screed just repeated what I had posted. Did you get your education from liberal union teachers? That is your problem you want the government to control your life so it could be very simple. You libterds have lost the rugged American spirit that made this the best country in the world. If all it takes is being black or a woman to get into the WH how shallow you libterds have become.

          9. DrBillLemoine says:

            Why are you so tired of reading? I’m beginning to see you are simple minded. We aren’t so different except you think everything can be boiled down to a few words, a routine trip, a simple cashing of checks. Life is highly complex from cradle to grave if you simply burn a few calories and think about life. Who said, ‘the unexamined life is not worth living’? You are stuck in the distant past for some reason–TV documentaries, say-nothing news media, no inquisitive bones, worn out from work, beaten down by peers–and fail to engage a faster, smaller, more connected world. The ‘trailer’ surprises me as you appear the quintessential block dweller. Progressives weight options, analyzing their impact on our lives, planning what might be better and then doing it. The shallowness I encounter is the rote history, sloganeering, self-centered, anti-intellectual posters on this and other conservative blogs. Nothing is simply black or white. This isn’t the industrial revolutionary time, the manfest destiny era, the taming of wild west nation; it’s the information and automation age and requires adaptation by all of us, not reversion to colonial times in any way. Try taking a course some day and see the diversity of a finance class, a sociology professor, a psychology lab participant. Diversity make a man far from boring. Education, equality, fair play, social mobility, economic progression–those are some of Hillary’s aims–and mine.

          11. DrBillLemoine says:

            You are a prime example of propaganda–from whom? Probably your Fox (comedy) News, Rush, Hannity, Beck and local precinct captain on the far right. Watch how smart the Dems appear to be to voters in November.

          12. Patriot says:



          13. DrBillLemoine says:

            Get a grip, Mr. John Birch Society member. The civilized world is getting smaller, faster and more connected. No global agreement replaces sovereignty of any nation. Never has, never will; your thinking kept us out of the League of Nations after WW1 and helped precipitate WW2. You are out of step of most Americans.

          14. studi30 says:

            Do you even understand what you are posting? You just showed why we shouldn’t have made an agreement with Iran in letting them continue their nuclear program. You just posted counter to the liberal, far left Hillary’s and Obama’s agenda. Congratulations. The League of Nations was approved by the US. The balless League of Nations was just as impotent as the UN is today. The Japanese walked out of the League of Nations and attacked China and the US. I seem to remember that Hitler attacking Europe and Japan bombing Pearl Harbor brought us out of an isolationist state, not the other way around. You are out of step with reality.

          15. DrBillLemoine says:

            Check your history books. The USA was NOT a League member.
            Are you saying you would not negotiate away bomb-making capabilities to keep the middle east safe? Nonsense and very dangerous for Israel and the free world from the proliferation viewpoint.
            Guess you don’t know the large number of good programs and good things the United Nations does for children, education, peace, stability and so much more. It’s always better to talk about an issue that battle over it. You neocons seem to disagree. The League’s goal was to talk and show respect, some things republicans don’t do well. With League membership we might have headed off WW2 which emerged in part from our isolation.

          16. studi30 says:

            First of all I have family high up in the Israeli military. They told me that since the70s Israel has had nukes pointed at all major Muslim cities in the Middle East. If Iran launches at Israel the nukes will auto launch and take out the Middle East. Israel is the size of NJ and half of it is Negev Desert. Two Iranian nukes and Israel ceases to exist. I arrived in Israel 8 days after the Yom Kipper War started. I couldn’t join the IDF because I couldn’t speak fluent Hebrew and never had basic military training. You are correct, the US wouldn’t join the league because they didn’t want to belong to an organization that would involve them in any future wars. Nonsense, Hitler and Mussolini wouldn’t have been stopped by the League. The UN programs doesn’t include Israel, do you know that? The UN is controlled by Arab countries in the Security council. In 2003 the UN sanctioned Iraq for not cooperating with the international team of weapons inspectors. That was a surprise because the UN sanctions Israel 5 times to every one sanction they do against an Arab state.

          17. DrBillLemoine says:

            While there may be some truth to your Armageddon scenario, I doubt any reputable leadership would eliminate ‘all major Muslim cities’ as your informant said. It’s preposterous on its face. BTW 2 nukes is 2 cities, not New Jersey although I’ve investigated the prevailing winds in those parts.
            About the League, I like to believe that Harding, Coolidge and Hoover weren’t very good politicians and their stints as presidents were not stellar either, so no talking to anybody much.
            De facto as a member state, Israel is party to UN programs, even indirectly. What’s your point there?
            The Security Council is ruled by the big 5, not any arab nations no matter how numerous. The general assembly is another matter, but Israeli policy dictates what sanctions are in order typically. Your point?

          18. studi30 says:

            The Security Council rotates between all major counties, not just the big 5. UNESCO, the children’s part of the UN doesn’t even include Israel even though Israel gives to UNESCO. Just as the American Red Cross never included Israel, making Israel start its own Red Cross type organization Mogen David Adom or the Red Star of David. The telling point of your League comment is “I like to believe…”. What you believe is not even in the ballpark of this site. Your far left liberal musings and belief in Hillary are so far out of the normal range it is laughable.

          19. DrBillLemoine says:

            Just another Capt. Obvious trying to impress. . .

          20. studi30 says:

            The only Captain Obvious is you trying to sound like a superior, educated liberal genius. You’re falling flat on your face.

          21. DrBillLemoine says:

            If you detect ‘trying’, you are head and shoulders above the average poster here. But you have some partisan viewpoints I can’t understand via rational weighing of issues. BTW if I sound superior, educated and liberal, not to mention genius, just maybe I am.

          22. Lkfeinb says:

            You are! But what makes me worried is that in revolutions all the intelligent thinkers are eliminated.

          23. DrBillLemoine says:

            But that’s it! There is no revolution, just the pendulum of politics swinging back to normal from 2010 Tea Party wackiness. It manifested itself in the infamous know-nothing do-nothing congresses since 2010 which has now made people mad; but they think it’s dysfunctional government when it’s just the incumbent Freedom Caucus that Trump represents among the people. As Hillary assumes the mantle of power, with the stimuli of Bernie and Elizabeth, and Democratic Senate possibly House, and moderate Republicans find their voices and backbones again, the ideologues will diminish. Unfortunately the American elites aren’t listening to their people like Brexit. If the Repubs continue to heed fat cats, not the people, they will continue to diminish faster than demography predicts and make ascending Dems complacent again. Don’t fear for education, ambition, worldliness and assertive forward looking pols. Consider the opposite–Trump.

          24. ezekiel22 says:

            Better get to the doctor fast. That broken arm you gave yourself congratulating yourself must really hurt. You being superior shows a great amount of chutzpah without one ounce of humility. Don’t you know humility is a fruit of the Spirit? Educated maybe. Liberal no doubt but not a classical liberal by any means. As far as being a genius maybe as you have outsmarted yourself before.

          25. DrBillLemoine says:

            You’ve heard a broken clock is correct twice a day. I’m alive, absorbing everything, and ticking better than ever in semi-retirement. No ‘broken arm’ lol as you say, but kudos from all who come across me in person. You also should know, facts are facts, and truth is kin to humility. Well the numbers don’t lie, something you righties can’t absorb. Thanks for the left handed compliment.

          26. studi30 says:

            Your long, empty screeds show you have constipation of the mind and diarrhea of the keyboard. With so much crap in your head no wonder you can’t see life as simple. I’m amazed that you haven’t killed yourself from depression. You use strings of ten dollar words to make yourself appear intelligent. Your screeds make everyone else reading them think you are dangerous.

          27. DrBillLemoine says:

            Anti-intellectual and anti-American fellowship thinking.

          28. studi30 says:

            You’re the one who can’t make life simple. Your mind is filled with tons of minutia that is scaring you. I don’t need to take any classes anymore, especially classes given by far left liberals. My wife and I are Civil War re-enactors, Rev War and WW2. We are the educators now. It is horrendous to see that our modern school systems don’t teach American history anymore. Most have never heard of the battle of the Monitor and Virginia. Most don’t know anything about why the wars were fought. Most don’t know who the combatants were in any of the wars. Most don’t know that Hitler killed 6 million Jews and 10 million Christians.

          29. DrBillLemoine says:

            You should always remember it’s the minutia that is synthesized to make a valid big picture. I’m afraid of nothing; don’t know where that comes from.
            You’ll find that educators everywhere are consider the liberals of their societies by the hoi polloi. I get a lot of that in these pages. Maybe you can relate all your personal minutia to the topic.
            I’ve been an actor for Disney so it’s no big deal; just follow the script and emote.
            You unfairly indict public schools which are an arm of each State. Mine were the hard sciences, math and computers, so it was a relief to perform. But I understand how your boy Trump relates to the misfits, malcontents and un-self-disciplined ones. Fortunately they are always a minority unless you ‘stars’ and ‘historians’ and ‘connected’ ones go along with their nonsense. I sense you verging on a big mistake following that bozo. But my minutia impresses CIA operatives, top 100 school superintendents, national community schools leaders and more. Who do you impress?

          30. studi30 says:

            I don’t try to impress anyone. I don’t have the overblown ego you have. You don’t impress me either. Why are you working so hard to convince me that liberals are the only intelligent ones. The more you post, the more I am convinced that you are the least intelligent. Trying to baffle people with bull is the sign of a loser. Yup, the hoi polloi are the liberals who are the 1%ers, the very antithesis of what liberals claim to abhor.

  • gf says:

    Yes, a great vote, Regis Karlheim. Bernie Sanders? A guy, that has never created a job, or held one, other than begin a parasite, off the taxpayers. Dude, maybe now, you will vote for Donald J. Trump. I cannot see you, voting for Crooked Hillary. Hey, I think that if some produced a dart board, with Hillary’s picture on it.They would sell very well, in coal country.

    1. Worried Vet says:

      Every where except the east coast and California.

        I don’t think, that they could keep up with the demand, in Arkansas.

        1. Worried Vet says:

          Yes the Clinton’s screwed that state. If people would look at the corruption while the Clinton’s ran Arkansas no one in their right mind would vote for Hillary. It’s really sick what they have been able to get away with for so long. What’s sicker is the amount of people blind to it.

    2. downdraft says:

      gf…also ask the question: ” what is it about Bernie’s skills that attract you the most?”

  • Artemis says:

    History has shown that when our “enemies” show fear for a candidate that’s a pretty good indicator that we’ve got the right person! Reagan is a testimony to that! A really “cool” by-product of that is the fact that people who were’t even suspected of being an enemy or our nation suddenly expose themselves as to what they are!

  • Worried Vet says:

    Maybe they will figure out Hillary is a crook and vote for Trump.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Kinda makes U sick to know that half the country is so out of touch with reality that they would vote for a murderer and habitual liar, or maybe we just have that many socialist in this country!

      1. obama says:

        You mean the half of the country that is so out of it they would vote for a liar know nothing like Trump.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          If U compare apples, Trump has never told a lie when it comes to Hellary, we could leave off the habitual lying part and replace it with her death trail! Only the uninformed or dumbed down could vote for such a BEAST!!

        2. Worried Vet says:

          This is a typical response from a liberal. No debate, no research , no discussion of any kind. They refuse to debate because their way is the only way,no facts and just ideology. It’s like every liberal I meet or talk to is stuck on stupid. How they can’t see liberal policies have failed us all is beyond reality. They live in a lying bubble Instead of the real world.

          1. obama says:

            You are mistaken. It is Republicans then truth and facts are of no consequence. Most Democrats are concerned about truth and facts. And likewise, right wingers are all stuck on stupid and you can’t fix stupid

          2. Worried Vet says:

            Your nuts and blind. I vote neither way and try to pick an honest one. That’s very hard to do. Hillary is a full time lying crook. When she talks she smirks and grins thinking she is fooling everyone. If you don’t know with all the info out there then you really are blind and believe everything the media tells you. Liberals won’t debate anything, they lie and spin facts To fit their sick socialist agenda. People who keep voting like crooks like Hillary must hate America. It’s disgusting how blind idiots keep thinking she is so great. She has hidden so many crooked deals over that foundation or slush fund is a better name for it. She is two-faced saying she is for women’s rights and takes money from women hating oppressive countries. We’re not talking chump change she has taken millions and if you don’t think those donations don’t come with a favor attached your stupid. I voted for the crook in 08 I won’t again. I took the time to find out who she really is. Just finding out garbage covered up bills many affairs and rapes was enough for me. There are to many women telling what Willie did to him to be a right wing conspiracy. There are to many stories out about the crooked foundation. She will finish off this country for greed and power and we will suffer for it. The best we can do is try to elect honest people not elect known crooks and life time politicians. I will vote for Trump because he hasn’t abused political power. We owe him that chance instead of voting crooks back into office because we know the name and the media has trickles down their legs. Wake up.

        Yes your right. I am amazed at people who seem to think socialism is a good thing. If they would just research how it hasn’t worked. Margret Thatcher said it best. Socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money. This country had been going down that path a long time. I don’t get it. I’m a poor person by any definition but I understand basic math. You can’t keep giving away the store and expect to stay in business. I never will understand how anyone with common sense can think spending money we don’t have is a good thing? What will it take , another very bad depression for people to understand there is no money? That we can’t even afford to pay something like the electric bill for the white house. This debt makes a weak and very vulnerable to all the countries who want to see us fail. Bernie Sanders and his agenda is what is a part of destroying this country. It’s really shocking the people who think his ideas are great for America. The scary part is more and more believe him.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Most are the younger dumb down people for Sanders, these were raised by the system and don’t really know better! And we will have another great depression I believe, and much sooner than U think! The debt is said to be at 16 trillion, it’s more like 20, these White house thugs are great at fudging numbers! But Obama’s goal it to do as much damage to America as possible, no matter what it is!!

          1. Worried Vet says:

            The debt is close to 20 trillion that we know about. The unfunded debt for things like all the government workers for retired and going to retire can not be paid. When the dollar fails and it will if they keep doing this how will the people who depend on their retirement survive. The only retirement checks from the government will be for Obama and the elites. There won’t be for the working people. This is just common sense and simple math. People don’t get it and it will come back to bite all of us in the butt.

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            England is the starting point, they are fed up with their elite, big Gov, power hungry fools! And what our so called elites are not seeing is, without we the people, their is no THEM, they’re no longer needed!

        2. downdraft says:

          Those who drink the magic “Juice” offered by the Libs have not nor can produce anything on their own…

          …so they don’t contribute at all to get what is handed to them…by you and me!

          And this, therefore, defines the profile of the Hillary/Bernie voter…who outnumber the rest of us!

          There lies the “math” of the Libs…there lies the need to keep it alive with ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS…and Terrorists…

          Unrest from riots is just what Obama and Hillary/Bernie need to survive because they simply call in the military…

          NO MATTER what the dangers are to the rest of us.

          Hillary/Bernie don’t care about Democracy nor our Republic…when the rest of us finally wake up, and RIOT…Hillary or Bernie simply call in the “back up forces”…

          …that is also the reason Obimbo kicked out the strong and dedicated Generals and replaced them with “Yes men” whom he can handle with gifts and promotions…..

          The Generals left behind to replace the strong…can’t find their ass with both hands, and would not be intelligent enough to know when “their time comes to save this nation from the Obimbos…

          they would be frightened and not want to rock the vote!

          1. Worried Vet says:

            Your right and see the similarities between Obama and Hitler? Lots of yes generals if they don’t then their fired or locked up. I see why people worry about fema camps if there out there then we really need to worry.

    I loved it when the Coal Miners confronted her about her anti-coal comments boy did she squirm.

  • Artemis says:

    Hi Bob, what do you say we start a “We the People Party” where lies and their perpetrators are not allowed! “The Spin Stops Here”, only the truth be allowed. Our “Mission Statement” could go something like this: “If you emigrate to the U.S. and you feel that OUR Country needs to be changed to suit your intent and/or purposes, we will gladly assist you in finding the way back to wherever you came from!” That should eliminate all of the whacko’s that don’t belong here! Does that sound like a plan America? Let’s see now, we could start by eliminating “Gun Free (killing) Zones”. IMHO, that is already “happening”, if you know what I mean…feel free to draw your own conclusions! Most important of all, God IS welcome here, Evil IS NOT!

    1. Worried Vet says:

      Not a bad idea. Something needs to be done soon or were in trouble. These idiots along with the media will get Hillary elected. The story out today is Lynch will have from the FBI to charge Hillary. They say they will have an up rising worse than Watergate if she don’t. Well I lived through Watergate And the uprising was from liberals and the media. They crucified Nixon into giving up , he had the sense to Know he had to resign.

    2. downdraft says:

      Artemis…we might want to keep the concept of some “Gun Free Zones”…

      …the District of Columbia would be a good place to initiate one…

      It is not my intent to rile up the wackos in Congress and the Senate..
      …..just to encourage them to FULLY embrace their concept of “gun free”…

      …using themselves as “role models” living in a completely secure zone…a SAFE gun free society because no one there can own a gun…

      I haven’t figured out what would be the result if someone brought in a gun from the outside of the zone…secretly…???

      If any of you readers are members of Congress or the Senate…let me know what you think of this proposal…

      1. Artemis says:

        Not a bad idea, we could start by taking all weapons away from the Secret Service, and let the Politicians have a “Target” on THEIR Backs!

  • kathy diamond says:

    Bermie Sanders ??????????? A Socialist ?? That’s a hell of a way to vote. This man wouldn’t even own the land to grow his potatoes

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      They’re the dumbed down idiots from the school systems, they can’t even tell U what socialism is, but they all know what free means!

      1. Worried Vet says:

        Hell they did a survey and asked young women if they knew and if Sharia law was a good thing. The responses were shocking to say the least. Young people just don’t know what’s going on. Most of these women thought it was OK or didn’t have any idea what Sharia is. It’s a very sad state of affairs

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          The schools have done a great job for the Gov. haven’t they, just like Germany before the war, Brainwashed!

          1. downdraft says:

            Hitler’s educational minister said to Germany’s parents “the children now belong to the Fuehrer!” …and thus was born a “Super Race?????

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            Not a lot of difference are there!! 🙂 This is something that we have to do is clean up our schools, that’s a must to get our kids started out on the right foot!

          3. Retired says:

            The super Race Lives in the US and Obama is the fuehrer.

            do you realize just how close to the truth that is.

            Peddle your wares Elsewhere,Tara Tilton!!!

          6. Worried Vet says:

            Yep.I seen an article where Washington State snuck in rules to teach and accept gender identity. A parent found out by accident. This is what the liberals have done for decades now. Indoctrinate and brainwash our youth. This is why so many think socialism is a good thing and they have no idea what Sharia law pertains to. It’s sad that we have let them get away with this so long to the point it might not be fixed without a war like Germany. We’re letting the enemy come in our country and we’re letting a bunch of crazy liberals ignore the law. Maybe young people will wake up and start having common sense.

          7. BILL3000 says:

            No,that’s the Trump Campaign you’re thinking of. Like Hitler and Mussolini,he promises Economic reform whil Inventing Scapegoats and Manipulating his Conned Followers Fears and Prejudices.

          8. Rodney Steward says:

            So you’ve loved ALL the jobs that Obama’s created, and of course I know you loved his change, a free cell phone!! You had Sanders that openly said he was a Dem. Socialist, and then there is the whore of politics that promised to carry on the Obama agenda and push her NWO foundation, that has taken money from 4 different terrorist countries, and all Trump wants is like the rest of America, we want our Country BACK!! I still believe you’re kin to the Duggars!! Later Billy-Bob!

    2. downdraft says:

      Kathy…years ago during the Depression…this country came a heart-beat from becoming socialist, communist…etc., voting for anyone but Democrat or GOP…

      …in some instances rioting…and we are close to that now…

      Looking at his circumstances…they are the same as back then…and only a “heart-beat” away….

      Also, there are “free loaders” in any culture, but I don’t see anything like that in this man’s behavior…just worry and panic, so he does what he has to do…

      I have not doubt that Trump can come in there and turn that environment into a silk glove…

      1. kathy diamond says:

        Downdraft: If Trump can’t do it, No ONE CAN

        1. BILL3000 says:

          Yes,if Trump can’t become Fuehrer and make America the 4th Reich,No one Can!

          1. kathy diamond says:

            Bill3000. So, it would be better to have a person who LIES, is a THIEF, violates NATIONAL SECURITY AND A MURDERER in the White House. Get Real !!!!!!!!!

  • J.B. Young says:

    Just like obama, Hillary will destroy the coal mining industry.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Yep’ she’s already said it!!

    2. Juan Two Three says:

      Hey, Coal Mining Penn. Trump IS on your side, how many times does he have to tell you coal miners this!!?? ANYONE in PA who doesn’t support and vote for Trump are absolute fuking idiots and I know there are some big time ‘Dandruff’ Bernie and Killery! WTF is the matter with you people? You could end up with a fuking Communist Socialist taking your money for distribution around the U.S. or Killery, who has a fuking LIAR, Crooked, Scheming, Blackmailing, Fraudulent ‘Boar Hog’ who will make damn sure she shuts down you livelihood like Obongoloid is trying to do today! WAKE UP!!

      1. kathy diamond says:

        Juan Two Three, Like your screen name & your ideas.

      2. Worried Vet says:

        I hope your post changes some liberal minds. I have my doubts because they really are brainwashed to the point that the truth don’t matter. Their right no matter the facts and they won’t debate issues because their scared of facts, it don’t fit into their ideology.

        1. BILL3000 says:

          Says a Dipshit for Trump.

      3. BILL3000 says:

        Anyone who Doesn’t Vote for Fuehrer Trump is a sane Anti-Fascist.

        1. TeaPartyPatriot says:

          Vote in November
          TRUMP and Newt vs the TRAMP and fauxahuntus
          Use it yourself and pizz some liberal like Bill1500 off.

  • Bob says:

    Careful. If stories like this get out, the Obama Admin will pass a law that if you register as a Democrat, you must vote as a Democrat. You will NEVER hear stories like this on the “Main Stream” media because they only report defection from the GOP against Trump.

    1. Worried Vet says:

      You know I never have thought much about conspiracy theories except maybe how Kennedy died. I hate to say it but you could be on to something. The liberals want to use Rico laws to stop people who don’t agree with global warming. Free speech is going out the window with this type of crap happening and what’s worse is liberals are getting away with it. The media gets away with blocking free speech if it’s something they don’t like. They can whine and destroy someone who is conservative for saying something bad about for instance Hillary. It’s a sad time we live in .

      1. Bob says:

        Like you, I served in the Military, from the time of President Ford until President GW Bush, and the only time I was ever worried about whether we had support at the top of the COC was during the Clinton Admin. Even Carter treated us with more respect.

        1. Worried Vet says:

          Yes I went in during Nixon. I agree Carter had more respect for the military. Ford had the head of Japan visit the USA. I was stationed in Japan. Even the Japanese who were upset about Hirohito coming to the USA treated us better than Obama does now.

      2. downdraft says:

        Worried Vet, Bob…so what is your next move to make a impact on the terror we are experiencing now…from our own elected?
        Pn and Moaning ain’t working

        1. Worried Vet says:

          Well I hope people listen and vote those idiots out and better ones in. I think it’s time to start pushing term limits and when their out no benefits. These idiots in office 8 years or 80 get benefits when they are kicked out. Something is wrong with that picture. They vote them selves benefits like that and wonder why so many voted for Bernie. That is inequality. We don’t get benefits like that in the real world. This is why people think socialism is good. The politicians have made it very unfair for all of us but the elite. The only way to fix it is get them out and start over hopefully with better people.
