The mid-summer crickets are back

President Trump, Senator Capito, Congressman McKinley, and Ogden Newspapers have had a lot to say about executive orders; unfortunately, you have to go back to the Obama administration to find any of it

Senator Capito in 2014

On DACA:

West Virginia Second District Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito called Obama’s decision “unconstitutional and wrong.”

Hypocrisy is not confined to Republican senators

Our local papers can certainly relate to "failed leadership"

Trump wasn’t fiddling; instead, he was playing golf

Good thing there is nothing important happening

From the online edition of today’s Palm Beach Post:

UPDATE: President Donald Trump, back at his Mar-a-Lago estate Sunday afternoon after going to his West Palm Beach-area golf course earlier, defended his administration’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, then took a dig at a familiar foe, the New York Times.

A 17-year-old brings a loaded gun to a local high school and the Intelligencer finds that "worrisome"

It has had nothing to say, however, about the increasing likelihood that 18-year-olds will legally be allowed to bring concealed weapons to WV Northern and West Liberty campuses

From this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer editorial, "Keeping Firearms Out of Our Schools":

City police say that when they went to Steubenville High School to question a student about an armed robbery, they found a loaded .40-caliber pistol in his backpack. Later, that 17-year-old and a 16-year-old were charged in . . .

Yes, it’s another editorial telling us how the Wheeling News-Register is “obliged to no individual, organization, political party or ideology"

Readers need only look at the next editorial for evidence to the contrary

Last month it was the Wheeling Intelligencer, this month it is the News-Register -- the anniversary of their founding becomes an excuse for a self-congratulatory editorial. From yesterday’s lead editorial:

We do not slant our reports to favor anyone. We let the chips fall where they may.

Our responsibility is to our . . .

Today's Wheeling Intelligencer editorial tells us to "reject harassment as political tactic"

There's no mention of President Trump's rhetoric in the editorial, however

An editorial in this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer wants us to reject the use of harassment in politics. Not this kind:

But the Democratic Representative Maxine Waters' kind:

"If you see anybody from (Trump’s) Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out . . .

Sexual harassment (with 1/26 update)

According to the local papers, is it something only Democrats do? And is it all Obama's fault?

In a 17-day period two months ago, the two Wheeling “newspapers” carried 23 articles that mentioned John Conyers, a Democratic African-American congressman from Michigan. (See here.) In the same period, there were three editorials that dealt only with Conyers. Both the articles and editorials dealt with the harassment charges against Conyers . . .
