Manchin Stunned by Deb Haaland's Confusion on Pausing Oil Permits
"So Joe Manchin's like hey listen a Deb I'm a senator here for the state of West Virginia here And I don't want my citizens to get dead And I'm trying to keep oil and gas prices down So we want to make sure we increase oil and gas production in the United States So why are we shutting down permits here So the hilarious part about this is Deb highland's office issued a letter about not issuing new permits right before she got up there and she's like I don't know anything about it How is it that a U.S. senator knows more about the office of the interior secretary than the interior secretary itself The answer is it's a Joe Biden appointed That's how Here check this out This secretary hall and I don't know Did you all just put out a statement Here's the department of interior just by out of statement And the statement basically says a proposed program is not a decision to issue specific leases or to authorize any drilling or development This is from your office So it looks like you are on a shut everything down Did you know you all put this I am sorry I am sitting in this hearing and not My God somebody shuts it down It shows what you're in ten years This is a mansion sitting there stunned He's holding the memo her office put out And he's laughing like this is this real How is it that I have the interior secretary in front of me I'm asking her about a impactful memo shutting down a lot of leasing and she has no idea what I'm talking about How is that
Is Biden on the Verge of Losing Hispanic-Black Base?
"Interim, we've been doing some research here about the black and Hispanic voting base, there's an article here from Paul bedard, Washington secrets columnist for the Washington examiner. It's headlined. Biden on the verge of losing Hispanic black base. So there's some new polling that's out of McLaughlin and associates, which is a GOP polling firm. But they are very good at what they do. So, you know, the pieces of fairly good job here in Paul bedard is a great columnist with the examiner. But starting at a former president Trump, we started seeing this erosion of the blue collar Hispanic and black voters. Now, much ink has been spilled much cable time has been devoted to the erosion of the white working class base. This is the if you want to say it's a JD Vance voter in Ohio and West Virginia, Indiana, in the Midwest, right? These are the former union die hards that would vote Democrat, the blue dot Democrats, but they would stick with the Democrat party. We saw that erosion with Trump. Now, much has been made of that move. But what's happening right now is I would call it a tectonic political realignment and we're seeing it because blue collar working class Hispanic and black voters are starting to trick, not even trickle, but to gush says Bernard. Giving Republicans not only a good chance, but a probable, likely slam dunk chance in both the houses of both houses of Congress to quickly lock down their own ruling
John King: Trump Is the Dominant Force in the Republican Party
"It prompted CNN's John King to report that you may hope Trump goes away. You may wish he'll go away, you may think he's not influential, but you would be wrong. That is at the top. A lot of people at home say stop talking about Trump. Donald Trump is the most dominant force in one of America's two leading political parties. And he is proving it again in this year's primary campaigns. And so for the people out there who want to stop talking about Trump. That's not up to us. We have to cover these races where Trump's endorsement is clearly making a difference in West Virginia tonight justice didn't Ohio last week. We're going to have the Nebraska governor's race later tonight as those results come in. And then Pennsylvania Senate race, Georgia, both the governor's race, the Secretary of State's race there, the Arkansas, there are some Trump factors as well. So he is a factor in the party. For a lot of people at home who don't want to talk about him and wish he would go away. He is not going away. And he is the dominant force in the Republican Party right now. He's right. No way around that.
DNC Chair Jaime Harrison: Not Playing Fair Is a Good Road Map
"Because we're so awful, our side is so awful that we're not going to play fair and you got to hear the chairman of the Democrat National Committee agree with him. Let's talk about the fascists on the other side. So I hear that, but I do think there are a lot of people, because we were just talking about you and I, we consume 8 papers in the morning. We look at the minutiae of politics. And most Americans are not doing that. And there are still a lot of people who feel disconnected from the party or maybe even disappointed in the party fair or not. I want you to take a listen, we have Roland Martin on. At the beginning of the show. Brother ro ro is never shy about giving his opinion. So he had a lot to say about what he thinks Democrats should be doing. I want you to take a listen and get your thoughts. Sounds good. You've got to have president Joe Biden stop being scared of senator Joe Manchin and go make the argument in West Virginia and go to the red parts of Mississippi and Alabama and say, this is what we have done and these folks voted against it and this is how we have delivered. They've got to be willing to engage in war. You can not play fair with people who don't play fair. There are no rules. The other side has shown that they will do whatever is necessary in order to win so you've got to say America when they didn't care about you, we did. What are your thoughts? I felt like that was a good road map. Well, it is a good road map and rolling. I want you to know, I'm going to Kentucky and Arkansas. I'm going to be in Mississippi and Alabama. We're going to all across this country. The chairman of the DNC says on national television not playing fair is a good road map.

Twitter Employee Mutiny Rises Amid Elon Musk's New Role
"Of an explosive issue as we go into next month. Let me repeat that title 42, which has been in place since March 20 20 by the Trump administration. It will be repealed, I believe the date is May 23rd. So everybody's gearing up for some big challenges. You know, look, it's possible. It's possible that maybe the Biden administration will say, huh, that's not a good idea. Maybe we should put it back in place. I mean, you do have a lot of Democrats, including Maggie Hassan, at a New Hampshire John tester at a Montana. Joe Manchin out of West Virginia, along with Christian cinema, who of course is Arizona saying, you know, this isn't really going to work. And we can't actually have an end to title 42. So the drama lives on. Lots of news speaking of drama going on over at Twitter, Elon Musk of course, as we reported the other day, has taken a 9.2% stake in the company and that has a lot of employees. All you know is kind of nervous, kind of mad, kind of upset, threatening to quit, there's kind of a mutiny if you would going on over there at Twitter because Elon Musk is now joining the board. He's been asked to join the board and people are upset about that. They shouldn't be. They really shouldn't be, but nonetheless, this is such the world in which we live. And so according to a Washington Post article, the CEO of Twitter had a kind of ask me anything conversation or is going to have an ask me anything conversation with Elon Musk he had one himself Elon Musk is apparently going to address employees to address some of their concerns, but fundamentally, I think the problem here is ideology, right? For some reason, the left has thought it was absolutely okay to trample over any viewpoint that they didn't agree with. And that's what's been permitted on Twitter that's been permitted within the culture and it's gotten so out of hand that Elon Musk is coming along and saying, okay, this isn't working. It's not working for society. We can't even have humor anymore. Don't forget badly on B, which is a fantastic site. I encourage you, I encourage you to go and look at it, started by a great group of guys, Seth Dillon is running the company and the CEO there. And Elon Musk apparently loves
Biden Opts to Drain Oil Reserves
"Yeah, yeah, and now Steven, I do want to get to the energy issue because Biden is Biden is blaming everyone but himself. I mean, one third of the strategic oil reserve is going to be essentially released. It's been Trump filled that bad boy up, if you will. And now in this guy, a million barrels a day when we could drill here on federal lands if he would open it up. But it's Putin's fault. Well, well, put, you know, instead of taking out of the oil reserve, which is for national emergency, hey, why don't we drill for it? In Texas and Alaska, North Dakota West Virginia and even in California for goodness sakes. I mean, why don't we we were producing a million more barrels a day under Trump and I believe I really believe this, Carl, if Trump were president today, we'd be producing 15 million barrels a day, not 10 million barrels a day. Think about what that would mean to our economy, for jobs, for, you know, and what's really obscene about this and I use that word advisory, you know, we're now importing oil from Russia and helping fund their war machine.
Joe Manchin Says He Will Vote for Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson
"So don't forget west virginians are friends in West Virginia State I like a lot by the way Travel there incognito all the time My light great brother in law had a wonderful farm there and he's actually buried there And we missed him greatly passed away in October When you see Joe Manchin just ask him can you please define a woman That's a way of explaining to him that it's outrageous that he's voting To confirm kanti Jackson to the Supreme Court It's appalling
U.S. Senate Passes $1.5 Trillion Gov't Funding Bill With Ukraine Aid
"So I want to get into a story here that broke late last night. The United States Senate has approved the $1.5 trillion spending bill that expands the power of the IRS and dramatically increases the size and scope of government last evening, but also it sends $13.6 billion to Ukraine. We're going to get into that. Now Senate Republicans voted for this 18 of them voted for it. Senator barrasso from Wyoming, Roy blunt from Missouri. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Susan Collins from Maine, John cornyn from Texas, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, chuck grassley from Iowa. Kathy Hyde Smith from Mississippi, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. Senator Moran from Kansas, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, rob Portman from Ohio, senator Shelby from Alabama, John thune from South Dakota, Tommy tuberville from Alabama, a senator wicker from Mississippi and senator young from Indiana. Approved Nancy Pelosi's $1.5 trillion omnibus bill. What good are Republicans when we have Republicans doing the work of Democrats? So I want to focus on one part of this, which of course is us spending $13.6 billion to Ukraine. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not we should send the money. I've already made my position clear on that. I'm going to ask a couple of questions about this. How about leaders thought this through? What does success look like with this sort of funding appropriation? What is an acceptable result? So a rational way of going about spending money, any person that we have here at NRB would ask the question before you spend $13.6 billion before you embark on a mission, you just have to say if it's the right or wrong thing to do, but also weigh the reality of pulling off that task. And the track record associated with the entity or the organization proposing it. So I have a question for all of our listeners that support sending money to Ukraine. Do you have trust in the CIA? Does mark milley and Lloyd Austin give you confidence? Because that's who we just funded. Does giving foreign aid to other countries give you confidence or does it give you skepticism? So just to be clear, these Republicans and a lot of people that are pushing for sending a to Ukraine. And it might be the right choice, by the way. I have said I don't believe it is. I could be corrected, but it's already
As war in Ukraine intensifies, US gasoline hits record $4.17
"Gas prices have hit a record in the U.

Lawmakers Push to Ban Russian Oil Imports, Amid White House Resistance
"Reporting progression all Republicans and the Democrats support holding Russian oil imports to the US lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are calling for the bike did ministration too bad U. S. imports of Russian oil as a further punishment for the invasion of Ukraine Republican senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska this is actually something that can make a difference that can get Putin's attention house speaker Nancy Pelosi agrees I'm all for that band but White House press secretary job sake told reporters Thursday that would raise prices at the gas pump for the American people to which senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia responded for the sake of of human kind this is not right and
Carrie Severino: Does Ketanji Brown Jackson Have the Votes?
"Now mechanically speaking votes wise do the Democrats have the votes It seems likely at this point we're probably going to have some defections on the Republican side I mean Lindsey Graham you can't really count on Mitt Romney Murkowski Collins typical crew You're not going to get you're probably going to get a few defections The Democrats though do you see any Democrats who could be up in the air What about Manchin I would guess sinema would probably fold pretty easily on this But what about Manchin Well you would hope those are the two that have stood up the most to the left Particularly in terms of blocking the court packing that agenda that same dark money groups were pushing and left trying to add justice to the court They stood up for that So thanks to them for that However when it comes to appointing and confirming judges they have voted for every single one every Democrat has voted for every single one of Joe Biden's nominees And that includes some very radical nominees indeed Unfortunately I think it's going to be I'm not super optimistic We are going to be able to get them to vote But I don't think that means if you live in West Virginia if you live in Arizona or frankly a lot of other states where it's easy to vote for those appellate nominees and think no one's really paying attention right They're not going to see it This is a nomination that the nation always is going to pay attached to because it's at the Supreme Court level So I think it doesn't even have to stop at that Any state where you've got a senator that should be voting for someone who has a constitutional principles right At least who has a philosophy interpreting the constitution Certainly one that should be faithful to the words of the constitution not allowing it to just evolve So I think we need to be reminding them and reminding all the senators this is part of their job They take an oath to uphold the constitution and that means to confirm people who are going to be upholding that constitution

Is It Time for a Complete Overhaul of ATF? Erich Pratt Explains
"Is it time for a complete overhaul of ATF? You know, that's an interesting question that's been debated by a lot of Second Amendment activists, because you get rid of the agency, there's still the laws in place that require the job to be done that they're doing. So let me just argue. We don't do away with ATF, but there's another agency that I would like to see redone or reimagine. That's called the core of engineers, okay? The deals with our water and everything else. But is there a way to take the ATF, get it back to its core competencies and not have it be a lightning rod for the Second Amendment issues? Well, you know, I think one thing you were saying earlier, there are some good people at the ATF. I mean, there are whistleblowers that come out. There are some people that we work with. I mean, there are. But typically it's been corrupt from the top down. And that's one reason why we so strenuously, oh my goodness fought to keep David chipman who was just an anti gun zealot from being confirmed. And I'll tell you that. That right there shows that the American people voicing their concerns can make a difference because there's no reason why in a Democrat Senate. I mean, I know it's 50 50, but with Kamala, you get the tie breaker. There's no reason why he shouldn't have been confirmed. I mean, just look at every judge that Biden puts up. They all get confirmed 51 50, okay? This should have been no different except we raised such a stink. And it wasn't just us. Other gun groups too, but just rallying the grassroots made a huge difference. And so not only did we keep the squishy Republicans against camp, but we even pulled even people beyond Joe Manchin of West Virginia. There were some other senators who were also saying, I just can't go with

"west virginia" Discussed on Axios Today
"First today's one big thing how the opioid crisis is fueling. Hiv outbreaks and west. Virginia and beyond one of our listeners. In west virginia. Lucas from charleston. Texted me recently about a local outbreak of hiv in his town earlier this year. The cdc called this outbreak in kanawha county west virginia the most concerning hiv outbreak in the entire us associated with injection. Drug use this week. The cdc issued a report on how to manage this outbreak but their recommendations are almost impossible to implement because of current local. Laws look suggested we speak with mountain state spotlights public health reporter. Lauren piece has been covering. What's been happening in west virginia so we called her up. Hi laurin hey thanks so much for having me. So what does the cdc recommending in their report that they put out this week. They were called into town earlier this summer to address the outbreak in charleston in west virginia's capital city where seventy two new cases of hiv link to injection drug use have been identified to put that in perspective a city of charleston size and a county the size of cunanan. Typical year in the us would have fewer than one new cases of hiv link to injection drug use. One of the number one recommendations that came in this report was to increase access to sterile needles for people who inject drugs but because of the legislation that was passed. that's not currently an option lauren. Can you tell us when this hiv outbreak. I started so it's actually kind of the result of a closure of.

"Our partners at virginia public media have been covering the race to the governor's mansion. Vpn's ben pave. Your has more on former governor terry mcauliffe strong lead going into the primary call last term in two thousand eighteen now. He's angling for his old job with the backing from the current governor. Ralph northam at a stop in richmond out to continue democratic policies and bring in new jobs. This state will take off like a booster rocket. I got more energy today for this job. I had when i was born. Competition include state senator jennifer mcclellan and former delegate jennifer carroll. Foy both are aiming to become the first black woman elected governor. In the us the winner will take on glenn yung-chen a trump endorsed businessman with deep pockets. Republicans haven't won a statewide office since two thousand nine. Then pave your vpn news. There are the three statewide races and voters in alexandria will also cast a ballot for the mayor city council and house of delegates in arlington to house of delegates elections in the democratic race for county board are also on the ballot in dc. A new dc. Ps policy would require marijuana drug tests for new volunteers and contractors council member. Charles allen told me the new policy is in conflict with district marijuana laws and would create unnecessary barriers. So the council's letter refers to the implementation of this marijuana testing as bad policy. I know there is as usual. Some nuance involved here. But everyone seems to have the shared goal of making sure people under the influence of drugs or not around. So what makes marijuana testing in this case bad policy. Well everybody knows we want to have employees volunteers all working in our schools safely with their children. That's does not in question here but this test. They seem to be relying on a sixteen year. Old law that all of a sudden. They've decided they want to implement But also marijuana is legal in the district of columbia and so the testing doesn't seem to make sense. It creates a new barrier at a time when we actually are trying to invest in bringing in volunteers and mentors and others to help our students recover from this pandemic so it doesn't make sense under the law. We're trying to remove barriers. Not put more up so has responded yet in any way to the letter that you sent yesterday. We haven't heard anything back yet. I certainly hope that we will. I think when you have all thirteen members sign onto something it certainly sends a signal and so my hope is that we'll go ahead and make the right decision here. Clarify and change course and not require any type of legislation necessary so dc public schools as you mentioned said the new clearance process fulfil some requirements of a law. That was passed nearly two decades ago. You and your colleagues have different. Legal interpretation Can you explain what the differences here. What what they might be trying to do well to be frank. We're trying to figure out what they're trying to do. The law doesn't make any reference to volunteers. That's what they're expanding it to And it requires are broadly drug tests and and what it's time it is illegal substances and certainly anyone who is under the influence beate marijuana else they don't need to be in the school setting With our students but marijuana is is not tested for a real time impairment of measuring. Thc levels is something that you're looking back in time and in the district columbia being able to consume marijuana in your home it's perfectly legal and and so this test is going to throw up. Barriers is gonna stop people from being able to be mentors and volunteers. Schools is to stop parents from being able to go on a field trip with their kids. This was bad policy. Thanks for joining us for. Consider this from npr. Listen again next time. We'll make sense of the major stories happening in the washington region and elsewhere in your world. I'm jonathan wilson.

Mothman was part of the chief cornstarch curse you know so why not bring it up. I don't know man. 'cause we shall i guess exactly discovery dun dun jacked it up. We need to take over discovery and run that show. Yeah it's not discovery more. Just all go shit. So then they decided to activate the land in activate And say by bringing jump house in some carnival games on land and having to go sort of create. What do you know what you mean. What they call james that whenever they recreate the noise and the energy of an area what are they had a special name for. It was recreate noise. Yeah like they would like in like a big band house. They have a ban going to get the music going to help. Sort of like all like other words they go back and they try to repeat trigger trigger objects. There you go to. Yeah yes they do that with the carnival games they but the problem with this is again. It's episode each episode was two locations. So this is this episode. The shawnee park was only the first of two so They only gave twenty five minutes of the show And i'm sure they didn't have enough time but they bring in. This car will start to activate lend the try and contact the two kids that were killed at carnival however my problem with this that they completely ignore to klay children. That were killed way before that. So the knowing that. But as i said i couldn't find any any new stories about the kids that were killed to park but the claim massacre is historic fact and the two kids killed on the land. Historical facts will they could have also done a trigger experiments to try and reach out to Bartley and tabitha completely ignore any of that didn't even talk about the family massacre bastards. Well get an. It's it's it is what it is but they don't the they do end up capturing another ep of what's called the battlecry in here that right now in the same general vicinity just before the ep. You'll hear us talking about the carnival that is battlecry pretty clear battlecry kind of a sound whatever it is. It's angry so that you hear that. That cry at the in their hell. Yeah man down. Yeah so that's what they capture and that's pretty much it for the episode The other shows most terrifying. Don't really having investigations or recounting what we did basically just the massacre as well as the carnival. Other the the the rise in whatever's there's no investigation. There's no evidence to play. We haven't so. That is the story of the klay massacre and the little shawnee amusement park when it's still still there. The roger still there so again when we take this fantastic fucking field trip we've talking about. We've got to go in investigate the little johnny park. Yep we gotta make list all this stuff and check it out. Absolutely absolutely yeah. That was a pretty cool story. I had never heard of the park. it looks like a cool place from the pictures. It looks creepy as hell. So you know. I'm looking forward to eventually out there. Now yeah may creepy is good man creepy. Yeah so guys. I hope you enjoyed the episode Looking forward to wisconsin next week. Got some fun plan for that in the meantime. What can they do to support us james. Well my friend.

"Today's topic is on the clay massacre in little shawnee amusement park. I hadn't heard of this amusement park but apparently it's really small Rundown hark the was open for short time well probably a couple of decades or so but apparently had a couple of deaths on site and supposedly the haunting sounds of the park. Are those debts But we'll get into that later It's been on man like four three or four different shows including ghost lab with clean brothers We'll hear from them in a bit later we into the actual part but first we're going to discuss the klay massacre so mitchell klay moved onto one hundred three acres of land with his wife and fourteen. Fourteen here you. I say boy fourteen children in what was the seventy seventy five as well. Esther there's no tv. No radio no podcast. Nothing now doc. Dark rooms and lots of love going on the museum. Yes sir now. This plot of land that he moved onto was in the western section of virginia. Because at the time was virginia was just virginia. West virginia didn't become west virginia until eighteen. Sixty three so technically. It was virginia but it was in the section that would become virginia which is why still be included today store now. The family began to cultivate and live off the land and for the next eight years. They prospered through a mixture of livestock tobacco. We an orchard and a kitchen garden in august of seventeen eighty three. The clays wanted to build a fence around a recently harvested grain stacks in order to keep his cattle from accessing him while it was out in the field or while they were out maliciously so michael tasks his sons bartlett and ezekiel or he went off hunting for the day as bartlett. Zeki were busy building the fence. Their sisters were at a riverbank doing the family washing while their mother and younger siblings were at home doing housework. Unbeknownst all of them a small group of marauding shawny indians were making their way towards their land. They i reach bartley. Clay shot dead instantly the shot echo through the area reaching the girls down at the bank. Who immediately took off for home in their path led them to write where young barley lay debt. They ran into southern chinese indians. And one of the older girls tabitha watched as one of the shawnee attempted to scalp bartley damn being a rough frontier bad ass. She leapt into action in attack. Shawnee indian reaching reaching for his knife. Unfortunately she was or powered and stabbed to death. They were both scout. Damn yeah while all this is very gutsy. Oh yeah yeah absolutely well all this going down. Mrs klay watched helplessly from her house at the same time. A piece of shit named lincoln blankenship came the call on the clay house. Mrs clayton begged blankenship. Jump in shoot at the attackers and help save her daughter. Tabitha's life unaware that blankenship would be the prototype for the cowardly lion. He turned tail and fled to the nearest town of new river to report. The attacks on the clay history has not looked fondly on him since then. He's a puckett coward. It's punky now. He is pumped bitch. Yep he's definitely on bitch. I know pump bitch he's bondage. Meanwhile ezekiel was captured and taking his prisoner in the attackers fled into the woods. Now mrs klay also being a bad ass. Frontiers woman managed to bring the bodies of barclays habit. The into the house and laid them on a bed and despite being completely distraught gathered up her remaining children in rush them. All six miles away to the neighbor's home of james bailey to get help six miles six miles man man. Then were the days i mean. Yeah it's bad. it's bad when when you know critical things happen but that kind of spacing out nowadays because you're looking for that'd be desirable. Yeah that's exactly what i'm looking for. Mr klay eventually made it home and discovered his worst nightmare on scene is to children's bodies and no one else around. He assumed they'd all been captured in this homestead and headed to new river for help he managed to make it to new river the next morning and reached captain mark matthew farley captain farley gathered a posse together men including mitchell clay charles clay mitchell klay junior james bailey william wiley edward hale joseph hair. Is cole. john french. In captain james more the group went up to the klay residents to bury the to klay children. Gather clues and plan the next move now from what the hell wants to shawnee left. Shawny broke into two groups. One went down the west fork of the coal river over cherry pound pond. Mountain in the other group went down the pond fork of the river that went down the other side mount. The posse decided to follow the group that went down the pond. Route the pond fork. They caught up some at night position themselves. Both above and below the group on the hill. They and they waited until dawn to attack when morning broke one of the early rising shawny spotted edward and before he could warn the others and wood fired and shot the native dead however the gunfire awoke the rest of the group now in the chaos that followed two of the shawnee were killed in the final one wounded. The remaining native is said to have begged for his life. However of upon finding that ezekiel was not with the group and remembering what happened to his siblings. Twelve year old. Charles clay killed the survivor. A gallon kill my kill. My name is charles. Clay you killed. My brother prepares today prepared to die. That's right since the posse chose the wrong group detract bill. The group that had ezekiel made it all the way to chillicothe the ohio. Holy shit yeah Longer yeah they screwed the pooch. Oh let me tell you. They did because once they got there. They tortured ezekiel and then burnt them at the stake. Oh man was zeke. it'd be. I'd i'd be pissed. I will come back and haunt every member of my family that loosely relentlessly now the to klay children were just the latest to be buried on land. According to lower the land was once the site of a large native american settlement and burial ground thrive far before european settlers as many as three thousand native americans are thought to have been buried under the park. The land sits empty for the better part of one hundred years until the nineteen twenties. When conley t snot out. Not.

"And, you know, died. Obviously. Hindsight's always 2020 wish out of that bar Casey. All right, so let's go into the college football kit on when you make sure that I get your opinion and Andy's opinion on all these College games and pro games as well, West Virginia and are me and, you know, talking with Mark Lawrence. You know, we're both pleased that army did find an opponent for a bowl game. West Virginia minus seven pretty consistent year for the Mountaineers and and a program that's now trending back on the way up after the coaching move Total of 41 Liberty ball from Memphis, Tennessee. Brad Powers anything we can look at here. And is there an angle to where you see an advantage? One side of the other. I just lean West Virginia. I know the money's coming in on army on West Virginia did have a couple of key guys opt out on their defensive front seven, which is an ideal when you're playing. The option. To me. It's more of a fate against the Army team that I thought benefited from are really weak schedule. I mean, three FCS teams and the two best teams. They did play as far as my power ratings. Cincinnati into lane both beat Army by a least 14 points. And I think West Virginia's pretty good, So I do leave with the Mountaineers. All right. What about you and I I'm pretty much in agreement across the board. They're, um they're bred mention the key thing the of their games this year. Three of them were against Abilene, Christian, Citadel and Mercer. And then if you want to add in another game that sort of along the same level, they played Louisiana Monroe, who went over the season as well, Not a very good team in Army beat him rather Easily. I'm concerned about their offense going up against a very good West Virginia defense. Of course, Army very run them intentional. They did not pass for 100 yards in any game this season. In fact, they're high was 94, then their next highest, I believe was like 75, so they basically rely exclusively on the ground game. Which makes it even though it's a it's a tough one. Generate. Prepare for when You're not really respecting the past. Um, you complete a pastor to maybe in the game, but I'm concerned about their ability to score against their two biggest pose. Navy 15 15 Nothing Win Air Force 10 in a 10 7 win again. Defensively, West Virginia may be as good a team that they will have faced aside from or maybe right on par with with Cincinnati, and the numbers sort of suggest that yards per play up front yards per play. Uh, Offensively. I think you're going to see West Virginia with very, uh, slight edge, but I think it's style of play of these two teams. I think West Virginia is at some point big going to be able to get the lead on Army make it difficult for Army to come back, perhaps crossing Marnie to Army turnovers to increase that margin, So I'm on the West Virginia side. I'll see if it goes down. A little bit more tomorrow, and I also think the game stays under There you go. B P. Let's look at Mississippi State Mike Leach in a miserable first campaign over there for star Phil probably glad that the cowbells weren't in the stands because they may have been silent. For some of those games is how bad the coaching was at times with Mike Leach and got off to a bad start there before any games were even played as some of the players deciding to opt out and ending up transferring those several of them. Tulsa minus 1.5 gave Cincinnati a game and a half after it looked like the bear Cats could take care of business with a 10. Nothing first quarter lead. But also hanging in there and a very disciplined Tulsa team totals. 45 a half Mississippi State not used to seeing an SEC team getting points from a team out of the American Athletic But tell us is that 1.5 point favorite total 45 Brad Powers where we hear Lean with Mississippi State here in ads basically, you know, kind of a play against also losing their best player opting out. He's an all American linebacker. If you don't know his name is David Collins, so be called on draft day here in a couple of months, I'm anyone than a Girsky Award for top defensive player in the entire country. So ah, very key part of their defense, opting out of this game for salsa. It's only a Lino because the weather forecast looks like it's gonna be awful, especially for Mississippi State, You know, want to throw it all over the yard. I mean, 50 Mile an hour wind 100%.

"Our campaigns designed to change organize for change especially in the rural states are sharing in a time of lockdown we've got our next guest on before he is a democratic candidate for governor that is to say candidate in the democratic primary in West Virginia Stevens this is part of a group called West Virginia can't wait I will talk about their model of organizing for change in the state like that now the world has changed as we want to have him back to talk about that as well so Stephen Smith welcome back to the program thank you so much for having me I'm glad to be here well we're glad to have you and I guess my first question is the last time you and I talked in a park on the West Virginia can't wait our members very intrigued as many people are buying a model you guys have put together a community I would call a community organizing community based organizing so it's not just a political campaign one person or a bunch of individuals but it's actually part of organizing the state I think it's very interesting last time you and I talk to them and that might have happened so I guess my question over one forty is how do you how are you guys working on adapting that model to one where you can't go out have a neighborhood meeting community meeting meeting and I can A. R. and a township or village how's that how are you guys think but we're doing the best we can in some ways we were built for this kind of crisis that the argument we've been making for the last two years is that the people of West Virginia are the ones who always end up having to govern ourselves anyway so we should put ourselves in charge and that's especially true during a crisis right you'll get any crisis in West Virginia history and there are lots of them it follows the same pattern the working people of the state realize what's going on before the good old boys club do they they jump into action we jump into action organizing food distribution we show up with pickup trucks we buy show what's possible from the bottom up eventually the good old boys club understands what's going on and they try to figure out how to take credit for what we're doing or even worse they start profiteering and then the end of all of it we're the ones left I carried the bag left left to clean up whatever devastation has been rocked and so we weren't surprised when a crisis happens we actually talked about what do we do if it went some natural disaster happens because we're used to seeing those in West Virginia and what it looked like was that in about a seventy two hour period we completely reimagined the campaign so we put up our corona virus response website up before the state of West Virginia had their own within seventy two hours we convene all of our county captains constituency captains are candidates and stitched together an economic relief planet coronavirus response policy plan wild and ours was up and running while the governor was still telling people to go eat at Bob Evans the centerpiece I know it's it it we have to last sometime so we don't cry the it's no it's no dis on Bob Evans that makes a statement about Bob Evans followed back Bob Evans I he tweeted afterwards you courage people to stay home I mean this is this is what it looks like though when we allow people to govern who have never struggled right people for whom politics is just sport they usually show up there always following are lagging behind at best and trying to profiteer at worst but the centerpiece of our strategy after the pandemic yet with that we turn to our field operations into a covert response team actually just looked up the numbers this morning so in the last less than two months we have recruited trained and supplied three hundred and fifty nine neighborhood captains stationed all across West Virginia and each one of those people is responsible for a hundred of their neighbors so they're checking in on a weekly basis to say do you have what you need do you have food medicine unemployment benefits do you need help getting your absentee ballot that is an old fashioned community care organization built inside of a political campaign and we constructed that entirely new model the course of those seventy two hours simply by listening to our people who said you know what we now as a campaign have two responsibilities we still have the responsibility to try and win a people's government in West Virginia we got to keep doing that and we have a responsibility to use what power we collected to actually try to reduce the suffering of our neighbors and so you've got champagne volunteers delivering groceries and helping get people connected to their local utilities to renegotiate their electricity bills and on and on and on so it's it's inspiring because it shows what government can't be and it's inferior because yet again the people of West Virginia are left to govern ourselves while the state government lags behind and again we're talking with Stephen Smith who is a candidate for governor in that in West Virginia and part of West Virginia can't wait campaign when the co founder so Steven all let me ask you know you guys it sounds like you guys are doing great work organizing using your infrastructure to show people what can be done but at the same time it's more than worrisome to me to see and hear what I've been hearing about for example you know a lot of people thirty three million I think now is the official number probably higher much higher been thrown out of work hi this pandemic and you know too much I'm hearing terrible things about how this current administration and current government has responded to the crisis on multiple levels including I hear there are terrible problems with people getting their employment benefits so you're right I think the only thing I can say to that is that we're not surprised unfortunately that to give you the example of the scale of the problem we're up against and West Virginia this is true around the country more than three times as many people have applied for unemployment benefits in the last two months in West Virginia has applied for unemployment benefits during the entire two thousand eight two thousand nine recession that for anyone who is uncertain what we are on the brink of is something that came to the Great Depression we don't know how deep we don't know how long but what it does is it puts our entire country to a decision even more so than six months ago we're at a precipice where one of two things is going to happen in American history right now that we're going to find the next generation in the next six months either we are going to have lurch towards increasing authoritarianism and fascism and division or we are going to pull ourselves up into a new era of populism multiracial bottom left populism where we start to in a more fundamental way reorganize society because here's the thing here's the light it's being told it's being told at the national level it's being told in West Virginia the light is being told frankly by too many leaders in both parties is that right now the people of America have a choice they can either choose their health or they can choose their bank accounts but they can't choose both in West Virginia we know that's a lie it's the same choice they gave the coal miners a hundred years ago it's the same choice they gave our educators two years ago in West Virginia this is the wealthiest time in the history of the world the wealthiest country in the history of the world we should not and don't have to choose between those things but over and over you see mostly Republicans saying you better choose your bank account get back to work even if it kills you and you see Democrats saying you better choose your health sorry we can't help you more but you need to stay home and protect your health and unfortunately we're not seeing national leaders I'm certainly not a state government West Virginia giving be obvious a third option which is to say if we address wealth inequality at its root we actually have plenty of money plenty of wealth to make sure that no one who is at home because they're afraid for their health and their families health should ever have to go back to work until they are no longer afraid for their health that is the reason to be a wealthy society is to be able to whether these kinds of challenges and yet what's happening in America the fissures between the wealthy good old boys club and everyone else are becoming greater and greater in this time of crisis and again it does not have to be this way again we're talking with Stephen Smith candidate for governor West Virginia and I also represent a part of the West Virginia can't wait coalition so Stephen let me ask you an unfair question maybe which is it this way if we were in an alternate timeline Stephen Smith is governor of West Virginia already maybe with a friendly legislature maybe not you can decide for yourself what would you be doing differently in the governor's office it's not being done today well we have a very clear answer this and we had it up on our website the last six weeks people can go take a look at it WBKO wait dot com slash coronavirus they'll give you a handful of examples one is you've got a big government work faster and better so are you alluded to this before there are thousands of west Virginians who had not received unemployment benefits and so they're calling us to meet our organization meet personally our staff and volunteers are taking unemployment calls and trying to funnel them to the state unemployment office because people are calling two three hundred times in a day and not through so that's one and that is something you can do that's a matter of political will it's just that our governor does not have that political will you can also do what some states are doing which is to call upon the reserves of state government to make sure those payments are getting out as fast as possible rather than allowing yourself to be slowed down by the federal government so part of the answer is to have a government that's more effective part of the answer is to start now I know we were in office we would have

"Methodology was used in southern West Virginia. and so what we found out is that in West Virginia counties that have mountaintop removal. we have about a little more than a thousand statistical excess deaths every year. and and and does it look and those are people who do they have no reason to the to to to feel like they were sick but the fact of the matter is it is common to find out that someone you know in the sacrifice zone has contracted cancer as it is to find out that they've got the cold. and that sh and and and it truly is a a one of the most under reported public health crises in the United States today. because. what about future yeah go ahead go ahead well no I was simply go to say that when we were talking about the particulars the reason they are so pernicious is because these tiny grains and and and if you look at it under a microscope it looks like a little tiny piece of jagged glass and it behaves in your system the same way it just reeks havoc it tears hell out everything. and so. they teach their small enough they transit the blood brain barrier they transit the heart long bear here and most importantly they transmit the placental barely. so at that did it it may enter through the lungs but it goes all over and anywhere it goes it causes harm. and then what about the god of the people working at these places you know I'm there total employment numbers relatively low but how how well are they protected from the out the facts in the work they're doing well one of the more and more interesting aspects of the. of this of of working on this bill in the last year particular is the fact that there has been scientific research done and we're finding out that own these mine sites and particularly with the surface mine workers there numbers for black long and what's called coal workers pneumoconiosis and silicosis have skyrocketed in the last few years and it's not just black long it's the particularly virulent form that kills kills ugly and kills quick and so the United mine workers all a few months ago demanded changes to the regulatory scheme to better protect people working on these sites and I'm all for that let's be clear. but the fact of the matter is they also Leon the United mine workers have said nothing precisely zero about the harm that these operations due to innocent people who simply have to live nearby. and the end result all right one of the reasons why I asked that question end result is in the end nobody really benefits except the mine owners and right and so we're before I let you go Bob can Kate where can people go to find out more about the ache act and may be a let get some information to let the representative know how they feel about. well there's a website ache act dot org a C. H. E. A. C. T. dot O. R. G. there's also call river mountain watches website C. R. M. W. dot net there is their Facebook groups for both the ache act and for for colder for mountain watch simply searching at. will will will disclose that I tweet I tweet about it quite a lot I'm at Bob can Cade on Twitter. and those are the those are some of your better resources and and I can only I can only implore your your good progressive audience to please take note of this bill and please contact your member of the house and tell them to get on board and co sponsor it because the more co sponsors we have the better the likelihood the bill has of passing and and just as as as a sidelight Richard. the there's an added I guess of the value added benefit to this bill and that is the fact that if we can end mountain top removal that is still a whole lot of cold that we're going to keep in the ground and so the ache act becomes simply by its operation relative to human health a very potent piece of climate change legislation in fact one of the few actual pieces of meaning full of the carbon. not carbon neutral bit carbon reducing yeah reducing that's the word of the pieces of legislation that could get through the house. well all right now thank you for that information and Bob king K. thanks for your great work both broadcasting and in a pushing this bill to help the people in the land of Appalachia and thanks for coming on the program it's been an absolute pleasure Richard thank you so kindly for having me up I'll come back any time that would be our pleasure and we'll be right.

I know you talked about the what we called the heavenly sunset. Yes. It was taken right. That was one of three really sorta eerie stories that kinda were like divine intervention ask this week. The first one was about, of course side from the sunset. So I got the second one you'd say was a church fire in West Virginia. The freedom ministries church in the community of green view it. Just this tremendous fire gutted this church. And when the firefighters went inside afterwards to survey the damage, they found that not a single bible was burned up on the number two spot on the carousel. Right. Love it, really amazing stuff and oddly enough, I noticed that I've been doing this now for a while here with coast to coast.

And it's kind of like the old trick we you somebody on the wrong shoulder, you know, and they turn around, and and you're you're behind them, you're on the other side or something. Yeah. Exactly. That's what happened. So this guy turns around and just as he turns around a truck comes down the road and this big metal gates swings out from behind the truck and the guy ducks, obviously because he sees it. But if not for that man, having him on the shoulder, you know, it could have been a disaster. And have you ever wondered what it would look like a guardian angel intervening?
