McCarthy: Speaker Pelosi ‘scare should all Americans’

Pelosi is confident that you ‘speaker of the House,” if Democrats win in the midterm elections. On “America’s Newsroom, House majority Leader McCarthy says, the elections are over the results vs. resistance.’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., renew President Barack Obama, the so-called “war on coal” by the support of a radical initiative to shut down, the more than a third of American coal-fired power plants by 2020 — a line of attack, and the spectacularly backfires for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“Under President Obama, it went to pass the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act in the house. But we were stopped in the Senate of the coal industry,” Pelosi, the Global climate summit in California, said in remarks Thursday, according to a video obtained by the NTK network-an electrical outlet-supported by the right wing America Rising PAC.

“For this and other reasons, I am so grateful to [Former New York City mayor] Michael Bloomberg’s” Beyond Coal ” initiative, which is working with the Sierra Club. It is so important.”

The “Beyond Coal” website describes the coal as “an outdated, backward and dirty 19th-century technology.”

“The beyond coal campaign’s main objective is to replace dirty coal with clean energy by mobilizing grassroots Activists to be built in local communities, in order for the retirement of old and outdated coal plants and to prevent new coal-fired power plants,” the website says.

It is for the rest a third of the country-wide coal-fired power plants by 2020, replace the majority of retired coal plants with “clean energy solutions like wind, solar and geothermal energy” and “keep the coal in the ground in places like Appalachia and Wyoming’s Powder River Basin.”

It is the latest in a series of such statements for Pelosi, to be celebrated, to kill your own efforts, coal-initiatives in the last month.

“We are fighting some of the Democrats had to. Senator Byrd had a coal-fired plant supplies the power supply of the Capitol, you know, I was a speaker and the will to go,” she said. With all due respect, West Virginia, we are not gonna a coal-power plant in the circulation.”


Republicans and the coal industry, accused the Obama administration of a war on coal, environmental regulations, the limited emissions.

An aggressive stance on coal hurt the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who had to apologize, in West Virginia, when angry residents confronted her about remarks she made, about the coal companies out of business.

“Because we are still people of the mountain-and coal-companies outta business,” she boasted at a Democratic debate, before adding, “we don’t want to forget the people.”

“I don’t know how to explain it, except what I said was taken completely out of context, what I meant, because I have spoken so far, to help coal-country for a very long time,” Clinton later told an unemployed miner.
