Another contemptible editorial

With no proof, we are told that Hillary Clinton wants to "scrap the Second Amendment"

Here is the key paragraph from this morning's editorial:

Clinton has been accused of wanting to scrap the Second Amendment entirely.

Accused by whom? The NRA? How about just one source as evidence? And couldn't we see just one Clinton quotation that indicates that she wants to "scrap the Second . . .

Illegal immigration

The Intelligencer cherry-picks and distorts the facts in order to support Donald Trump

Is the problem of illegal immigration getting worse? Yes, according to this morning's Intelligencer editorial:

Statistics don't lie but . . . .

Some geeky stuff on the cost of electricity

The Intelligencer rewrites West Virginia history

celebrating West Virginia Day

From this morning's lead editorial in the Wheeling Intelligencer, "Celebrating West Virginia":

For much of our history, the coal, oil and natural gas under our mountains and the timber clothing them served us well.

The Intelligencer is rewriting our history -- most of West Virginia's history . . .

Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 3

Benghazi!

The front page of this morning's Intelligencer carried about 80% of the AP article on the likelihood that Hillary Clinton would win the Democratic Party's nomination.

On the editorial page, however, it was business as usual as we got Patrick Buchanan's anti-Hillary column from last Thursday. I'm sometimes amazed that . . .
