The People’s President

By Patty On February 16th, 2017

President Trump continues to make good on his campaign promises, this time with the beleaguered coal industry in West Virginia.  There is a nice moment at the end when he brings a coal miner forward to say a few words to the press.

  1. The problem with the coal industry isn’t with regulations.

    The problem is that a vastly superior product ( natural gas ) is cheap and abundant, and that alternatives are growing fast.

    The problem with WV / PA coal is that it is not as clean as Wyoming coal, so people prefer the coal from out west.

    The problem with coal jobs is all this, plus automation.

    Tell that to the Trump.

  2. Tell that to the Trump.

    Tell that to the miners whose jobs are now secure, the bastards! Yes, more bad news for Phantom. It’s dreadful when Trump saves or creates real jobs.

    Do you know how to read?

    Coal is yesterday’s fuel, natural gas is totally cheap, totally plentiful, and burns better.

    Why would people want to burn more coal than they do now when a better product is out there?

  4. Donald Scargill

  5. I appreciate the optimism Mr. President. MAGA.

  6. Who thinks that there will be an increase in coal jobs over the next decade, and why?

    Serious answers only, none of this ” regulations ” horse shit.

  7. Allan, Patty, Troll, Pete – is a sub room-temperature IQ required to be a disciple of David’s?

  8. A beautiful moment.

    The President actually does what he promised, and acts in the interests of his compatriots, putting his people first.

    No wonder the Left hates him. The Left hates the working man. It hates marriage, families and strong communities. The Left is evil. Never forget it or ever underestimate how evil they are.

  9. What the President did was overturn a regulation that put much of the country off limits to coal production.

    Phantom is correct that natural gas is a clearly superior product, which Texas has plenty of, but let coal live or die according to need, and not regulation.

  10. Obama and Clinton: “The Russians hacked our election!”

    Obama and Clinton in 2012: “Hack the French election!”

    CIA espionage orders for the 2012 French presidential election

    I love wikileaks.

  11. If Margaret Thatcher were alive now she’d be turning in her grave.

  12. Yes.

    Love her or hate her, she was intelligent and principled.

    She would not have been in lock step with this donkey.

  13. Phantom is correct that natural gas is a clearly superior product, which Texas has plenty of, but let coal live or die according to need, and not regulation.

    Let’s just burn the premium fuel in power stations? The premium fuel should be for domestic use and coal should be used in power stations. Of course natural gas is the superior fuel – so why waste it?

  14. Allen, Tx also mines coal. We have older power stations in this country that do run on coal. One third according to my research:

    What is U.S. electricity generation by energy source?

    In 2015, the United States generated about 4 trillion kilowatthours of electricity.1 About 67% of the electricity generated was from fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and petroleum).

    Major energy sources and percent share of total U.S. electricity generation in 2015:1

    Coal = 33%
    Natural gas = 33%
    Nuclear = 20%
    Hydropower = 6%
    Other renewables = 7%
    Biomass = 1.6%
    Geothermal = 0.4%
    Solar = 0.6%
    Wind = 4.7%
    Petroleum = 1%
    Other gases = <1%

  15. Coal is a dirty fuel. It’s use has been banned I believe in New York City for some time.

    There are coal power plants in upstate NY, but the governor I think wants a timetable to close those plants and replace them with less polluting natural gas plants.

    If you took a deep breath of the filthy air in Beijing ( as I have ) you would know why coal is so very unpopular.

    You can’t have it in heavily populated areas. Its prime days are over.

  16. The Left is evil. Never forget it or ever underestimate how evil they are.

    No question about it – they are evil, and utterly twisted. These leftists welcome their own destruction as a species and work to hasten their end. Think about that for a moment: it has never happened before in nature anywhere that a species would actively work for and welcome its own destruction yet these leftists do exactly that, and they hate those who wish to save their own and their future.

    SAVANT,

    More of us (Americans) are waking up to the fact that Trump is merely a proxy: the insane, deranged hatred directed at him is really meant for us Christian, traditional, predominantly white Americans.

  17. Phantom of course there will be an increase in coal jobs. The Obama administration shut down a third of our power generating grid. That grid will be brought back on line as natural gas is fitted for operational industrial capacity. Those plants burn coal we need them for at least 20 more years. There is your market share.

    Bringing natural Gas online is what we want in Pa we want to pump it, refine it export it, and build the ships to carry the exported products all made with Pennsylvania Steel.

    The only thing in our way is yuppie Democrat Cult members like our governor and every granola munching wackjob with a ban the pipeline sign in their yard.

    No State in the Union can enjoy more of a boon from Fracking and Natural Gas than Pennsylvania.

  18. The Obama administration shut down a third of our power generating grid.

    Well surely there must be blackouts all the time then?

    Why that dastardly demon Obama

  19. An exporter of coal would not use American ships when the ships can be built for far cheaper in low wage nations

    Pennsylvania coal is dirty, not ideal for export the way that western coal is.

    And good luck getting the locals in PA to accept a dirty filthy coal export facility.

  20. The stock market sure is happy with Trump.

    MAGA!!

  21. no not export of the coal export of the natural gas you twit….

    Coal is a dirty fuel.

    That’s why electrostatic particle removal systems are fitted – to remove the particulates

    http://www.iea-coal.org.uk/site/ieacoal/databases/ccts/electrostatic-precipitators-esp

    Removal efficiency >99->99.99%

    Particle size range 0.01- >100 µm

    There – now it’s clean

  23. Allan

    Good

    We will place a nightmare coal plant next to your house, right by the park.

  24. the coal is a short term need of 20yrs of supply for domestic power plants.

    Phantom before you insert your foot in your mouth… ooops to late,

    Google how many coal power plants shut down by obama.

  25. Phantom – just fit the systems to clean the flue gas. It’s very simple and not difficult to grasp

  26. The Left hates the working man. It hates marriage, families and strong communities. The Left is evil. Never forget it or ever underestimate how evil they are.

    lets take this apart, nuttiest thing I’ve seen you write Mr. Moore
    the Left came about originally as unions to fight on behalf of the working man
    nazis and fascists imprison unionist leaders, and then ban unions.

    Families/ strong communities are hallmarks of the Left which Thatcher destroyed in the UK

    the rest .. blabber that the Left is evil is completely unhinged
    Hard to believe you wrote that, are you serious ?

  27. Ronseal does exactly what it says on the tin. Not a hair product.

    Politician does exactly what he promised he’d do.
    The evil truth telling git.
    The nerve of the man.

    Come on Twitterati keyboard warriors let’s get him…

    Yada Yada Yada.

    Meanwhile the Donald just gets better.

    Wish we had a strong leader. Not Sharia May.

    Go Donald!!! Keep knocking em out the park!

    The stock market? Patty, over the Obama years, the Dow index jumped 150 percent, over 12 percent annually. It was the second longest bull market in US history. (the longest was under Clinton).

    But of course that was under Obama, so it was different. Then the performandce of stocks didn’t count, we were told. The US economy was constantly “tanking”, was it not?

  29. Obama was a dictator, and under him the stock market increase was a bubble.

    Trump is a shirtless man on a white horse, like Putin, and under him a rising stock market is evidence that all business barometers are looking up, now that the dicatator is the hell out of there.

  30. jude – this is your lot…. the libtards

  31. YAY! Let’s all go to work in federally tax subsidized dirty, dangerous last century industry coal mines that clean, cheap natural gas handily buried due to current market forces.

    That sounds like a great conservative initiative.
