First of all, the link to the SourceWatch page is not an article, it appears to be more of a wiki - and there is a big difference. The page was last edited on Nov. 27, 2017, when Ted Nace added an...

You misquoted The Hill article and you continue to so. I distorted nothing. I used the same source as The Hill used. Anybody who claims that 104,000 coal mining jobs have been created since October...

Repeating a lie ad nauseum will not transform it into the truth. Absolutely nobody claimed that 104,000 coal mining jobs have been created since Oct. 2016. Nobody that is, except for you. The Hill...

That is not true. The BLS estimates that there are about 54,000 coal mining jobs in this country. There are many more jobs related to coal mining but those folks are not coal miners.

Then you agree that nothing you posted about high sulfur coal being burned in Moundsville, WV, is going to help eastern Kentucky coal miners, except maybe keeping their electric bills low?

I agree...

The House passed the bill by a 219212 vote on March 21, 2010, and Obama signed the bill into law on March 23, 2010. Democrats lost their filibuster-proof majority when Scott Brown won the seat that...

Neither was a mistake. President Trump's mistake was in not firing Comey on his first day in office. Comey is a criminal who should be the target of a special investigator, not a good friend of one.
