Something that bothers me as much as the new virus is the ability of these news monopolies to control the truth or block different views out there. Freedom of our speech is being controlled today.

I’m a lifelong conservative Republican and an avid Trump supporter, but it’s time for us to send Justice back to Lewisburg to stay. The Ethics Committee may approve of him, but the voters make the final decision.

Obviously, everyone opposing a Bible class in school has no concept of the term “elective.” Let me help: No one would be forced to take a Bible class. Only those who choose to take the class would take it. I thought you all were avid supporters of “free choice.”

We knew it was only a matter of time before Trump would ride out the economic wave Obama left for him. Even with the huge tax cuts for the wealthy, he will manage to create another recession like most other Republicans have in the past. He still has no clue what a president should do for the…

The Legislature should pass a religion class instead of just a Bible class. That way our students could learn and be exposed to different religions in the world. Of course, the religious right may not want to admit there are other types of worshipping.

I just can’t stop laughing at the hypocritical Republicans who all of a sudden think what Schumer said about Kavanaugh and Gorsuch is troubling. Their president has said and did things from behind the presidential seal no other president has done and they want me to believe what Schumer said…

Dropping the interest rates to save Wall Street from pain is a bailout. The rates should be conserved until we see how bad this pandemic will get.

You know what? As a former 25 year registered democrat I say this. It’s long past time that Democrats accept blame for their actions during their decades-long control of our state. Under their watch, we lost our steel industry, our manufacturing industry, our chemical industry and our coal i…

It is time for West Virginia Republicans to stop making excuses and to stop blaming Democrats for their failure. Our roads are terrible and coal is not coming back. They’ve managed to make things far worse for West Virginia in the time they’ve had the majority.

When making up your minds about which side to vote for, do this: stop, look around and remember that we are either last or near last in everything and the Democrats are the very ones that put us there.

Yes, most of our elderly people on Medicare did pay into it. Same for social security. And yes they earned that benefit. But those that did not pay into it should not be entitled to the same benefits as those that did. Same for Medicaid which is a entitlement and not a benefit. Handouts are …

We should feel at ease now that Pence is protecting us from that virus. He won’t have to rely on scientist or career government workers. He can ask God. If God doesn’t know the answer he can ask Trump.

It was not very comforting to hear the president in a speech say that the U.S. is very, very ready to deal with a virus that he can’t spell or pronounce. Fortunately, he put Vice President Pence in charge of the task force.

I personally don’t know if Rush Limbaugh deserves a medal from the president, but he is an important force for balance in our politics, by pushing back on liberal dogma.

Katherine Johnson, who recently died, received the Medal of Freedom from President Obama, the nation’s highest civilian award for NASA space program and getting John Glenn safely back to earth. President Trump gives the same award to Rush Limbaugh. Awful he has no idea what that award means.…

I received a letter from Alex Mooney today asking me to donate to his reelection campaign. For what? Being the least effective member of the United States Congress? He never visits his district or interacts with his constituents. His picture should be on milk cartons so we could at least hav…

Hey Mr. Governor. Just because people are buying tickets to your girls basketball games doesn’t mean our economy is good. Spend some time in Charleston or any part of the state other than your hometown you might learn something. You make Earl Ray look like a good governor. Never thought that…

With all the money the DNR brings in from license sales why don’t they have outreach programs that teach outdoor skills?

Are the same legislators who are trying to bankrupt the state by doing away with property taxes the same who refuse to move the state forward by passing cannabis laws?

I’ve been watching the show on George Washington. In one episode they read the Declaration of Independence out loud. I then looked it up and read it several times myself. It made me wonder how these men, our founding fathers, would view the modern day federal government. I believe the answer…

All my liberal friends are employed by state/federal government. Or they’re in social work field and depend on government grants and funding. Maybe if they were in public sector they would understand how production, profits, pay and benefits work. Maybe then they would see things the way we …

Could anyone really believe that America could have reached the current state of technological advances were we not a free market capitalistic system? Most of the advances China has made they have stolen from us.

I own a AR-15 for one simple reason. I have a guaranteed Constitutional right to do so. I don’t mess with other people’s rights and they have no business messing with mine. Period.

I know of no parent who would allow their children to lie every time they speak. So why are we allowing it from the President of the United States. Such hypocrites.

What no one gets about gun control is that it is one thing in urban areas where you have police nearby (except for the fact that it doesn’t work, i.e. Chicago, Baltimore, etc.) but in rural areas police are a long way away and you have to depend on yourself for protection. Most liberals live…

If Trump stood up in front of an audience and tore up a document that he thought was full of BS, the Republicans would be clapping ...that’s the double standard! Trump’s BS and lies will never stop until he is out of office.

Sadly for the U.S. our credibility and respectability have been in decline for many years. With the election of Trump it might be damaged beyond repair.

We should all be unified in protecting all of our constitutional rights. They are all equally precious and many have given their lives to protect each and every right. I am not willing to give up or allow any of my constitutional rights. It’s up to the individual if they wish to exercise the…

I find it hilarious that the Democrats claim that Trump interferes with our elections. I believe that the Democrat party is trying to interfere with the Iowa election. They want to make sure that who they want to win will win. So obvious. Republicans had no problem with their caucus.

The Republican senators didn’t fail to try the President. The Democrats failed to find an impeachable offense. Failed to create a fake one. Failed to convince the senators it was their job to do it. The Republicans in D.C. are the only ones doing their jobs working for the people vs. their party.

Is Trump a wonderful guy? Probably not. But that is not a crime. He and anyone else have my vote no matter what as long as they run against liberals.

How in the world does an armored vehicle come up missing from the State Police? Someone really needs to look at that agency’s inventory practices.

The GOP-controlled Senate labels the House impeachment process a “partisan hoax.” Yet Mitch McConnell refuses to introduce any bill in the Senate that passed in the House. Refuses to even let any of the hundreds of bills be discussed or vetted in an appropriate Senate committee. That defines…

The State of West Virginia shouldn’t spend a dime more expanding traffic lanes in Cross Lanes until 1) they incorporate as their own city and 2) they put common-sense zoning in place to stop the uncontrolled and haphazard growth that caused that mess.

If the elected Congress members lie to the public and they know its an outlandish lie they also should be impeached. Republicans state the economy is great as a reason for not impeaching, just thank the bank robber.

There was no brutality in the Gilmore case. None. I don’t know anyone who thinks there was. What we all saw was a suspect refusing to comply and fighting with our police. She was the only party in the wrong here. The only one. The police were simply doing their jobs. End of story.

If Trump’s OJ-styled dream team of lawyers gets him acquitted, I wonder if he will go off to find the real perpetrators.

Going into the Senate, the House panel said they had enough evidence to impeach. Now for 48 hours they’ve been saying if they can’t get more evidence it won’t be a fair trial. Democrats are fools to think we can’t see through their lies.

Those who are the loudest advocates for term limits are also the most outspoken in complainants of government by bureaucrats. With elected officials limited in time in office the knowledge of government operations would automatically transfer to unelected experts.

To Department of Education, Superintendent Steve Payne, and President of the Board of Education Dave Perry: Thank you for listening to your public by keeping the present social studies standards as they were. We know how important the social studies standards are in the world we live in today.

There may be a disconnect between the liberals and conservatives in that if these ideas are brought to fruition, we all pay for it. Put all those ideas together for funding and government printing presses couldn’t spit out enough money to pay the bills. I was a liberal as a youngster, then I…

Bush said he wanted bin Laden dead or alive and then lost interest. Obama just finished the job. There was no public discussion about the general.

Supporting America First in no way makes you a nationalist. I believe in protecting our individual liberties and rights above all else. I blindly follow no man. I believe in holding the individual responsible for their actions. I believe in paying your own way through life. I believe that th…

More environmental regulations are being trashed by Trump so his billionaire buddies can become richer and our environment will continue to degrade. What a guy.

I guess Ms. Gilmore has blocked out the part of her arrest where she was actively resisting and fighting with the officers. She was the one in the wrong. Not the police. And the arrest was in no way brutal. I support our police. They did nothing wrong.

Note to Putnam county. Nobody is taking your guns. And, people are shooting each other in America because they have guns.

That standing invitation to Fredrick County to join West Virginia is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Talk about opening a can of worms, what if Virginia extended an invitation to Jefferson and Berkeley Counties or PA an invitation to Monongahela County?

I do believe Couch Huggins makes enough money to pay his own fine. There’s no need for a “Go Fund Me” page. Get real!
