EPA Chief: Yes, We're Fighting a 'War on Coal'

Gina McCarthy, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, was on Bill Maher’s show and clarified the department’s position on coal:
Bill Maher: “Some people called it a war on coal. I hope it is a war on coal. Is it?”
Gina McCarthy: “That’s exactly what this is.”
For some perspective, a Heritage Foundation analysis of anti-coal policies found that they will destroy more than 500,000 jobs, slash the income of a typical family of four more than $1,400 a year, and increase electricity prices at least 20 percent. Price spikes could be much higher in states that depend heavily on coal-fired power plants, especially in the Midwest. Coal still produces 37% of the nation’s electricity.
One wonders if the consequences of winning this ‘war on coal’ are actually understood. We don’t have a replacement for coal that is anywhere near as cost-effective or as efficient, so this will end up being an extremely expensive fight.

Karma, Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

I know some of the players left over from WWII who are behind all this mess.

This is definitely a repeat.

Gene, look for a friend request.

RE:"

GOD HATES THEIR BEHAVIOR PROBABLY MORE THAN ANY OTHER SIN.

OBAMA IS A QUEER."

I love your comment.  Short, succinct and CORRECT.

PS-"OBAMA IS A QUEER," and that's just his good side--he's also a despot, a murderer, and a devout psychotic.

PPS-I really don't think that there is anything vile and repulsive he hasn't done.  Yet, we allow him to keep his job, keep his pretend citizenship and steal and kill all he wants.  Why is that?

Germany had PLENTY of queers in the government with Hitler.

In fact, There is a part of their army called "The Pink Panthers".

I've read the Bible cover to cover about 70 times

Queers brought down MANY nations.

GOD HATES THEIR BEHAVIOR PROBABLY MORE THAN ANY OTHER SIN.

OBAMA IS A QUEER.

obama's War on Coal is intended to cause electricity rates skyrocket and bankrupt the middle class. We are quite capable of building highly efficient coal burning power plants that are less polluting than cars are. The place for a War on Coal is in china where the air is often the color of sulphur

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
