There must be parallel universes. That's the only logical explanation. We live in one universe, and some members of the mainstream media live in the other.
How else to explain the discrepancy between what’s been reported and what we see with our own eyes?
When things look bad to us, they say they're good. When things look good to us, they say they're bad.
Take the last eight years and the present time. For the last eight years, things were terrible here in West Virginia. Now, all of a sudden, they're getting better. But that's not what the media tell us. They tell us just the opposite. Things were great for the last eight years, they say, but now it’s the opposite.
Somebody's blind or crazy, and it ain't us.
Ever since Trump was elected, we've heard nothing but doom and gloom on the nightly news. Over the past eight years, during the reign of his predecessor, everything was coming up roses, supposedly.
Time for a reality check.
One of Obama's weapons in the multifaceted war on coal and other productive uses of private property was the ludicrous expansion of the term “bodies of water” to include every inch of withered soil in America that ever was wet or ever might be.
Thanks to the efforts of West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and his peers from other states, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati issued a stay in 2015, preventing the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from designating whatever they wanted as “navigable waters” subject to their oversight.
Recently, Morrisey was present in the Oval Office as President Trump signed an executive order directing the EPA and the Corps to review the rule, prepare to rescind it, and suspend litigation regarding it.
That’s good news to us, no matter how it's reported in an alternative universe.
