Two Illegals Arrested in Ohio County

WHEELING — 130….that’s the total of illegal immigrants caught by the Ohio County Sheriff’s Department since 2005.

Two more were arrested early Friday morning after a traffic stop on Interstate 470, and one was already a wanted man.

Ohio County Sgt. Nelson Croft pulled over a tractor trailer near the Elm Grove exit because of missing lights and speed.

Sgt. Croft found two men illegally in the country from Guatemala and the man driving was a German National.  More HERE

The Evolution of Liberalism

J. D. Pendry

I just returned from a two-week trip to Korea. My jets are still lagging, which might explain why I was wide-awake at 0300. If my jet lag runs its typical course, I should be sleeping soundly somewhere mid-sermon.

Korea is an interesting place and an interesting lesson. My history there goes back to 1972 when I was an Army Private in I Corps stationed at Camp Red Cloud in Uijongbu, Korea. Uijongbu is just down the road a piece from communist North Korea and the world’s most heavily fortified and defended border along the 38th latitudinal parallel north, which if your curious about such things also passes through Wild Wonderful West Virginia where I sit this early Sunday morning. Although today’s average public school product probably could not tell you this, the Korean War never ended officially. There exists only a cease-fire. In 1972, dirt streets and roads were common to many areas. Most Koreans had neither a telephone nor a car. Women wading through the flooded paddies mostly planted rice by hand. In the countryside, thatched roofs were common and many rural areas still had no electricity.  More from JD Pendry HERE

Obama Wants to Bankrupt the Coal Industry

RUSH: If you happen to live in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Colorado, and even parts of Indiana, Barack Obama wants the coal industry in which you work to go bankrupt.  He intends to bankrupt it.  He also intends to cause skyrocketing energy prices.  He made these comments earlier in the year with an editorial board meeting that was recorded, the San Francisco Chronicle.  The Chronicle says they reported it.  They put it on their website.  The newspaper story they did on this did not comment on any of this.  You get the point, though, people voting for Obama, I don’t think they care anything about it.  I don’t think that the substance of who he is is relevant, otherwise he wouldn’t be above 30%.  He’s a symbol of something to a lot of people, and he’s a blank slate and they are making of Obama whatever they want him to be.  If he wins this, there is going to be some severe buyer’s remorse, and we see these guys in the media, they’re covering their rear end because if this guy goes far left, they don’t want any blame for it, “We didn’t know. We didn’t know who Obama was, only written two books, aspirational (sic) speeches, don’t know much about him, don’t know who his heroes are, don’t know who his mentors are, we don’t know anything about him,” after they’ve pushed him all of this time.  Here is Obama, this is in January of this year in an editorial board meeting with the San Francisco Chronicle.

OBAMA:  What I’ve said is that we would put a cap-and-trade system in place that is more — that is as aggressive if not more aggressive than anybody else’s out there, so if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

RUSH:  He’s gonna bankrupt ’em, he’s got a cap-and-trade program, Algore, this is to save the planet.  He’s going to bankrupt ’em, by definition, they will bankrupt.  But that’s not, by itself, the single most damaging aspect of what he said.  This is.  More from RushLimbaugh.com

High diesel costs lead state to extend truck registration

West Virginia trucking firms will be able to delay purchasing new registrations on their vehicles for two months because of the high costs of diesel fuel.

Gov. Joe Manchin’s office made the extension announcement today, saying it will give state-based trucking firms until Sept. 1 to be re-registered, rather than July 1.

“The cost of gasoline has had a profound effect on our economy and is hitting everybody’s wallets,” Manchin said in a news release. “But to our truckers, the cost of diesel fuel is even higher and it’s directly affecting their ability to stay in business.”  More from the Sunday Gazette Mail

Thanks, West Virginia….  every little bit helps at this point…
