We have verified documented evidence for slavery, Sandy Hook, 9/11, Holocaust, etc. There is none for impeachable crimes and climate change, which indicates hoax.

Republicans no longer believe in democracy. Today it seems they prefer oligarchy, government by a despot supported by the ultra wealthy. Sure, the rich know best, just look at how well Russia runs.

Our democracy is certainly at risk. If the president is allowed to barter tax dollars to help win elections when will we ever have another non-corrupt election? This is why Capito and Manchin must vote to impeach Trump. If they do not their oath is worthless.

I’d like to know when the last time was that the venter who complained about “special protections” because we are “all equal” was fired from a job for being heterosexual or denied an apartment rental because they’re white?

The Constitution provides that we are all created equal. If that is actually true then I believe it’s wrong to ever give anyone special protections because of who or what they are. When you give special treatment or protections to some we create a divide. We are either all equal or we are no…

If your job is outsourced you might’ve been forced to take SNAP or other safety net help from the government. If you are a wealthy farmer like Jim Justice you might get a $125,000 welfare check from the government. Talk about a welfare queen.

Hong Kong protesters displayed American flags. I think their trust in America as a defender of democracy is woefully misplaced nowadays.

Republicans aren’t “allowing Trump to destroy our government.” We are supporting President Trump trying to save it from the socialist Democrats.

Kate Mishkin’s article on the effects of climate change is outstanding in describing the effects of climate change on West Virginia and on the reasons for state-wide resistance to facing it. I pray providence and the voters find state leaders with the vision to make West Virginia remarkable …

Which came first. Chicken or the egg. People claim climate change is caused by fossil fuels. Didn’t climate change create the fossils that later became fossil fuel.

In response to Crouser’s editorial about the wall. If you were on a lake in a boat with 100 holes in the bottom and you had 90 plugs. Wouldn’t plugging 90 holes make more sense than letting all 100 holes flow freely?

My sincere appreciation and thanks to the three individuals that helped me when my wife fell last Monday in the Chick-fil-A parking lot. God bless you.

NASA reports 97 percent of actively publishing scientists agree that humans are causing global warming and climate change. The denial of 3 percent of scientists is not persuasive. Facts are not hard to find.

I support boys playing on girls teams for one simple reason — my liberal feminist pro-choice Democrat cousin that drags her daughter to rallies and protests will freak out the day her daughter has to share a locker room with a boy.

The entertainment is not supported by the taxpayer. The race tracks are subsidized by the taxpayers. They don’t need to shut down to be profitable, just adjust their payroll to be in the black and not depend on taxes to keep them afloat. Fix the roads!

Loud exhausts on these new Mustangs are not flattering to an otherwise good-looking sports car. They actually cheapen them. They remind me of those that have to wear a big belt buckle.

Congratulations to the folks who were instrumental in building the great sports complex in our area. Top notch and first class. Question — why have all the scoreboards and never have them operational?

I agree with Chuck Landon, we don’t need four sports classifications. Leave them at three and regarding football, only allow eight teams for the playoffs. That increases competitive games and also shortens the season for the students.

No one should be afraid of the truth. Why won’t the president allow knowledgeable people to testify? Why won’t he release the relevant documents? Why is he afraid of the truth?

Questioning the so-called climate change experts is not denying anything. It’s trying to make a informed decision. I did a search for scientists that support climate change and those who deny it or think it has a lesser effect. Believe it or not there are thousands of scientists on both side…

Why is that Suddenlink cannot provide decent cable service and internet in the Alum Creek area? The cable is constantly pixelated and the internet is never the speed you pay for. I’ve talked to several people in the area that have the same problems. When you call Suddenlink, time after time,…

Every senator and representative took an oath tho uphold and protect the U.S. Constitution. It clearly lists bribery as an impeachable offense. This is not a witch hunt!

You mention the Constitution but apparently haven’t read it. The House gathers evidence to decide if the president should be impeached, like a grand jury. The trial will be before the Senate, where the president has due process, including witnesses.

I hear that smoking pot has a lot of good health qualities such as easing pain and several other ailments. But what does all that smoke do to a person’s lungs?

In Tuesday’s article about the declining steel industry in the U.S., a quote about the imposition of Trump’s tariffs said “it seems like it kind of backfired.” Seems like a great summary of the whole Trump term of office.

If you live near a coal mine or strip mine, you are in danger of deadly water, air and soil pollution. If you vote Republican you are signing your own death sentence. Republicans, and especially Trump, are allowing our environment and our health to be destroyed so coal operators can make pro…

Yes the Republicans made a mistake four years ago by fielding so many candidates in the primary. Common sense voters corrected the mistake by picking the right man for the job. Sadly the Democrats are not only repeating the mistake. There is no right person for the job in their mix.

Hats off to Fred Dillon of St. Albans. He did a wonderful job in such a short letter to the editor. His views seem like common sense to me. I wish someone could explain the opposite view in the same fashion while offering indisputable facts like Mr. Dillon did.

Can’t make this stuff up. Oak Park, IL. Liberal town officials wanting to make a statement concerning town diversity. They’re fighting over which official is most oppressed and has the right to make the statement. Can’t just be a liberal. You have to be more liberal than the other liberal.

Trump said he didn’t tell Pelosi and other Democrat leaders about the military plans because of leaks, yet he could not mention one example of Pelosi leaking information. Most leaks about Trump’s administration come straight from the White House itself. People working in the White House want…

Alex Mooney is either ignorant or deliberately misleading his constituents when he writes that “this process is all very one-sided because the President is not allowed to have his legal counsel present, he’s not allowed to cross-examine witnesses, and he’s not allowed to offer counter-eviden…

In 2015, the Republicans had a nice group of potential presidential candidates. They made a mistake. What will it take to correct that mistake? The Republican party is a total disgrace. Anyone with any intelligence can see the fear of Trump that Republicans in Congress show by not standing u…

So President Trump abandons the Kurds and pulls our forces out of Syria. But then, he wants to backtrack and send in tanks and other armor to protect the oil fields. Is that not the height of the new Trump-Republican party hypocrisy? We were going to end our participation in a supposedly poi…

Thank you Republican Congressional Representatives for your childish demonstration of how to shut down government through mob action. It was a disgusting display of disrespect and, hopefully, it will not become the new “norm” for protesting legitimate activities of government.

I want to see a list which indicates whether these opioid abusers are on public assistance or not. There’s your answer right there. If they had jobs, they wouldn’t have the time or money for pill popping.

Is your reasoning faculty so flawed that you cannot perceive the difference between abruptly abandoning vulnerable allies on one hand, or slowly deliberately leaving after establishing an agreement with Turkey that would protect our allies?

“Conservatives” continue to ridicule the Democratic presidential contestants for their discussions on health insurance. Again you need to appreciate that they are talking about it whereas Republicans are not. I hope you realize Republicans want to destroy not only Obamacare but Medicare and …

Like no president ever, Trump has turned his back on a country of people that saved us from the daily torment of losing loved ones. Now the super dangerous criminals are free because of a very simple man who can’t govern.

I don’t think harassing a president with impeachment and investigations and not letting him be president, by a bunch of radical haters in the House is what our founding fathers had in mind.

It’s interesting to see the Christian right denounce liberals and talk about them as though they were the scum of the earth. If they would read their Bible very closely, they would find that Jesus Christ was the greatest liberal of all time.

Putin’s venture in Syria just went from a terrible mistake to a great success. Thanks to President Trump.

Americans are getting tired of Trump’s rant and rave lies at his rallies. Why do we need to see all of his anger and hear his cursing on TV news? Children watch TV! He does not impress people with his behavior anymore.

How low will our senators go to keep their power? We need new representation that will go to Washington to defend our values not just theirs and our economic interest.

Our democracy is certainly at risk. If the president is allowed to barter tax dollars to help win elections when will we ever have another non-corrupt election? This is why Capito and Manchin must vote to impeach Trump. If they do not their oath is worthless.

In a rally speech last night, Trump said Biden was a good vice president only because he knew how to kiss Barack Obama’s butt. Amazing, coming from a man who gets up each day demanding that everyone kiss his.

Trump is the worst president in the history of the USA. He is so narcissistic that he can’t think of anything except what benefits him, his family, and his wealthy acquaintances. He does not care about America or Americans. He is similar to a mob boss or a cult leader. He has no loyalty to h…
