Don't Mess With White West Virginians!

West Virginia GOP lawmaker calls for Hillary Clinton to be ‘hung on the Mall in Washington, DC’.
Friday evening a Republican lawmaker from West Virginia called for former Secretary of State and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to be publicly hung in Washington DC.
According to WOAY, Michael Folk, who serves in the West Virginia House of Delegates when he is not flying airplanes for United Airlines, posted a tweet stating: “@HillaryClinton You should be tried for treason, murder, and crimes against the US Constitution… then hung on the Mall in Washington, DC”
After receiving criticism, Folk posting a second tweet reading, “Sorry, I don’t mince words… read this story & watch this video & maybe you’ll understand” with a link to an article about the failed investigation into Clinton’s email server.
Note* There is no state that Hillary is more hated than in West Virginia for her uncaring remarks about coal mines and coal miners. She got slammed in the primary and most likely will get slammed in the general election as well.

West Virginia Senate Supports Convention Of States!

The state Senate has passed and sent to the House of Delegates a resolution supporting a Convention of States to rein in the federal government. The Senate approved SCR 10 18-14 following a lengthy debate Tuesday.

The resolution supports a national movement to exercise Article V of the U.S. Constitution to call a convention of states to restrict the power and jurisdiction of Washington.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charlie Trump (R-Morgan) said a constitutional convention is a legitimate exercise established by the Founders “as the final recourse when Congress will not act.”
Backers of the Convention of States are specifically concerned about the size of government and the growing debt. However, Senate Jeff Kessler (D-Marshall) said such a convention would be risky.
“This method has never been tried and for good reason because we don’t know where it will go because there are no constraints.”

If approved, West Virginia would become the sixth state to support a Convention of States. Article V provides when legislatures of two-thirds of the states approve a convention can be called and amendments to the Constitution proposed. Those proposed amendments would then have to be ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the states.
