    From The West Virginia Clean Air Forum newletter. – ‘An important component of Governor Joe Manchin III’s legislative agenda in 2009 was a bill to implement an Alternative and Renewable Energy Portfolio. The portfolio requires large utilities selling electricity in West Virginia, such as Allegheny Energy and Appalachian Power, to include alternative and renewable energy sources in their generation mix. West Virginia utilities currently use coal for 99 percent of their electric generation and hydro power for 1 percent. The legislation requires that 25 percent of electric sales in West Virginia be met by alternative and renewable energy sources by 2025. The interim goals are 10 percent of sales by 2015 and 15 percent by 2020. 90% of the 25 percent reduction CAN NOT COME FROM NATURAL GAS.’
    Manchins bill read the same as Obama’s Cap and Trade bill that didn’t get passed. After he was successful he was given nationwide exposure with Obama,Reid and Pelosi. All hugs and kisses look it up in the videos on UTUBE
    Joe Manchin’s daughter is the CEO of Mylan the company that priced the Epi 10 life saving drug from $79.00 to $700.00. The WVU Board of Governors appointed by her father (Joe) awarded her an unearned MBA to qualify her for that job. This was reported by a Pittsburgh, Pa newspaper as West Virginia newspapers favored any Democratic rep.
    The only good thing for the Republican party as related to Joe is that he can be used by anyone and will do anything to keep his position. Relating to the story about the lady picking up the freezing snake, saving his life and then being bitten by it most correctly identifies any relationship with Joe. Beware
    We now have our first Republican lead legislature since the 1930’s. The FIRST thing they did was to get rid of Joe’s Cap and Trade bill.

    Anyone who doesn’t feel like watching the game tonight, I was watching the final episode of The Circus on-demand. Oh, that was so richly satisfying, watching all the self-proclaimed “smart” people being fed a s@!*-burger.

    (Or, do what I do — if you get ESPN Classic, they have the game without any commentary, just field mikes, you don’t have to listen to the commentators yakking away…)

      Snake oil salesman, trying to figure out what he needs to say to keep the customers coming back afte they figure out the stupidity of oiling a snake.


      • Beck calls Clinton the worst candidate ever and that she was dishonest. Funny…he never mentions that Cruz forgot to tell Texans that he, Cruz, was Canadian. Cruz lost also because he was dishonest, tried to circumvent our Constitution.

        Says that his business is fine financially. Wonder who is paying him off. Soros?

    The left wing extremists are not collapsing in grief en masse because they lost an election.
    No, it’s because they thought they HAD US.
    It’s the grim realization that they will never control our thoughts and actions which has caused the communal mental breakdown.

    I don’t believe anything Josh Earnest says because he lies for the lyingest president ever, but did anyone read/hear his comment about Air Force 1 today?
    “It is obviously tradition for the former president to take one last flight aboard the Presidential aircraft at the conclusion of the Inauguration.”
    Something tells me that this is not a tradition, that this is something the Obama regime made up. My understanding has always been that the outgoing president cedes all powers and attributes which would include AF1 upon the conclusion of the swearing in of the new President.
    I don’t trust anything coming out of the Obama regime and don’t put it past them to eke out more freebies, or to insult/denigrate President Trump by hanging on the AF1 at which time Obama would be ex-president. I always thought the outgoing president was entitled to Marine One out of town and that was that.


    • Michelle says:

      Where the heck would he go? And I thought Obama is all about climate change so why would he add air pollution etc for no useful reason? What a hypocrite!!!


      • I’d be afraid of what his lackeys might plant on the plane. I wouldn’t set foot in it or the White House until the thing has been gone over with a fine tooth comb. What kind of mischief and criminal activity is Barry capable of? Just about anything.


    • webgirlpdx says:

      No. they don’t fly in the real AF1 but another like it. But that was for Presidents who actually had a home or life to go back to. Unlike these two losers.

      Just call an Uber driver to take them to the rental across town.


    • SteveInCO says:

      One of the two physical aircraft is indeed used by the Ex President to go home, just as they are used to pick up the incoming president elect. That’s not an Obola invention. (It does not, however, have the Air Force One call sign.)

      It’s the last time that particular pilot flies that plane; the pilot stands down the same time his President does.


    • SteveInCO says:

      To clarify, there are two identical aircraft, for redundancy. They even fly together to the destination, just in case one breaks down. But only the one the President is on is call signed Air Force One. (It’s not AF1 if he’s not on it.)
