Dem Governor Switching Parties

WASHINGTON — Gov. Jim Justice of West Virginia, a Democrat who was elected last year even as President Trump carried the state by 42 points, is expected to announce Thursday night at a rally with Mr. Trump that he is changing parties, according to three sources familiar with the plans.

Speaking to reporters in the White House Thursday, Mr. Trump promised “a very big announcement” at a gathering in Huntington, W.V., that is expected to draw thousands of supporters from across Appalachia, a region that gave Mr. Trump some of the largest margins of his election.

Mr. Justice, a billionaire coal and real estate magnate, ran as a conservative Democrat and declined to endorse Hillary Clinton in 2016. But even as West Virginia has become a reliable Republican state in presidential elections and further down the ballot, a handful of Democrats have still been able to win office.

Mr. Justice, though, is said to have friendly relationships with some members of Mr. Trump’s family. And before entering politics he gave money to officeholders in both parties while variously registering as a Republican, Democrat and independent.

    1. It’s time for every individual to remove themselves from the traditional thinking of following organizations and administrations, that we now find, are intentionally causing further division, chaos, and the destruction of our history and ideals as a country.

  1. This guy is changing Parties? I just know he is not doing it while his can stays in the Gubber seat. I have heard of 2 Congressman who switched parties but didn’t have to give up their seats and I didn’t like it when either one did it. Forgot names but one was Dem to Repub, and the other was the oppose, Repub to Dem. I feel if an official wants to switch parties, they should resign and re-run under their new party. Id they are allowed to switch without doing that, it sets a bad precedent. What is to keep a politician from running as one, getting elected, then change parties after? They could do that to “sneak” into the seat of a state that is predominately one party, then circumvent the will of the constituency by switching to the other party. This should never be acceptable.
    Not to mention it looks like this guy jumps around the political landscape to whatever Party is doing the best at the time. From Dem to Independent to , now, Republican. He doesn’t care what Party he us in. He wants a government paycheck until he drops dead. He’d be a RINO of the worst kind. He’s like Linsey Graham. Hides under the bed until the smoke clears, then jumps on the side of the winner in a dispute and pretends he was there, fighting, the whole time.

    1. Republicans/Democrats IS as Rep/Dems DO, to paraphrase Forrest Gump. Don’t care what party name they attach to, but how they vote

    2. It appears that the PEOPLE of West Virginia chose him to be their Governor in SPITE of the fact that the state went Republican and supported Donald Trump for President! Maybe, just Maybe, he is finally seeing what ALL AMERICA needs to see and recognize — and the time is NOW!!
      Regardless of the “Party”, those that are currently in charge of and running the Democratic Party are bent on burning this country down, just as surely as if they could take every American flag and burn them all! In the process, they are TOTALLY DISRESPECTING every Veteran and every active military person, male and female, who have given their all to protect and preserve this nation and all that it stands for!!! Until the so-called “Leadership” of the Democratic party is changed and their personal agendas stopped, it is hopeful that more and more will finally see where their ‘leadership’ is taking them and will do what is necessary to preserve our country and our way of life, and remain a beacon of light and hope for the rest of the world!!! If that means changing political parties in order to accomplish that, so be it!!!

    3. If that were the case Dems would have had to run a lot of new elections in last midterms and at 2016 election. Many ran as republican and switched to a dem party after. What’s good for the good is good for the gander. Difference between repubs and dems. Even when it’s obvious there was interference in election. There’s been people charged in every swing state yet that’s not interference come on. We don’t burn down our city’s and murder friends and destroy community stores. Dems do this every election then day after election. News is happy and peaceful and the fires stopped the gov shut down autonomous zone. Funny huh. Eventually even the low iq Dems will see the politition Dems claim to want to share money just not there own. Google how many of the one percent is Democrates. Yet they claim they need laws to raise income. Lol. Lemmings e everyone that voted for president elect harris as Biden keeps calling her as we all knew he was just a puppet.

  2. President Trump’s Executive Order requiring Patriotism and American history be taught in school and his Executive Order canceling Racial training in government agencies and to the military are a start to return this county to its roots. He has promised to support and fund schools which are alternatives to public education. This is another way of combatting the racial socialist indoctrination. Plus we have to reelect Trump to bring Law and Order to this country. We cannot cave to the threat of more chaos funded by hate-filled leftists and Marxists like Soros intent on destroying the country through hate and greed. And if politicians change parties because they no longer see the truth in the party they have served for years, so be it. They have a God given right to change and no one should second-guess their decision. 

  3. Looks like some of the deep state children are crying foul as POTUS is not keeping the doors closed like the Obama era was.

  4. Governor Justice. Lets show President Trump that he does have a Clean Coal Solution and we want to put the American coal miner back to work and rebuild these coal mining communities. With Carbon Capture Utilization coal can be combust and put into the atmosphere less CO2 than what a natural gas power plant emits.
    The Time Of Clean Coal Is Now Here!

    1. How silly! 400ppm CO2 in atmosphere is like 6 people in a 15,000seat basketball arena. Without it goodbye forest and plant growth. Coal can survive on ts own and costs not burdened by the crack pot idea of burying CO2. The only gas to concern in soft coal mines is the CH4(methane) explosive potential and that has been controlled.

      1. Right on, Herb Heller: At a mere 400 ppm CO2 is a Trace Gas and no Man-Made Climate Warming Crisis is possible from CO2 increases! The Dems and Progressives simply lie claiming a Man-Made Global Warming Crisis when this CO2 Concentration DOUBLES to 600 or 800 ppm — When the typical Earth Atmospheric Concentration for billions of years have exceeded 1,000 ppm and have been as high as 7,000 ppm during very cold Ice Age periods. Also, CH4 (Methane, “Cow Farts”) are in extremely low concentrations despite the BS uttered by AOC & Al Gore, Dems.

        1.   Even the UN International Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC) claimed to be the “Gold Standard Scientific Authority on Climate Change” by the left, publically agreed with the Global Warming Skeptics: At the 48th Joint Working Session of the UN IPCC in October 2018, the UN IPCC announced that their own conclusions agrees with the Global-Warming Skeptic Scientists that Climate Change is Not Causing Extreme Weather!
        The UN IPCC stated that: “There is limited scientific evidence linking human-caused climate change to increases in extreme weather”. Thus, “Global Warming” Climate Change Factors and Man-Made Emissions are Not the Cause for increases in frequency or severity of weather extremes: Hurricanes, Cyclones, Droughts, Forest Fires, Floods, etc.
        [Note: These UN IPCC conclusions were also recently published by The Epoch Times, in the fall of 2020]
        The same conclusion is also supported by a recent Global Warming Policy Foundation report authored by retired Oxford Physicist Ralph Alexander which states: “The purported link between extreme weather and global warming has captured the public’s imagination and the attention of the mainstream media for more than any of the other
        claims by the narrative of human-caused climate change … If there is any trend at all in extreme weather, it’s downward rather than upwards”.

    2. Actually, Scientists now have solid factual evidence that CO2 & other Greenhouse Gases Do Not Drive Climate Change and that 97% of CO2 are from Natural Sources and only 3% from Man — Together, of all the Natural & Man-Made CO2, Methane (CH4) and NO2 emissions 98.5% are Reabsorbed annually and do not enter the atmosphere.

      Also, Scientists now know conclusively, despite false & unscientific propaganda by Democrats and Progressives: The Earth’s Climate is “Insensitive” to changes in CO2 atmospheric concentrations (i.e., CO2 is a Trace Gas & CO2 is NOT A PROBLEM, as falsely claimed).

      Dr. Roy Spencer is perhaps the most qualified climate scientist on the planet who received NASA awards of Excellent for his work on Satellite and Global Temperature measurement system in place since 1979 that provide the most accurate and fully-global monitoring twice a day of our Earth’s temperatures. Since the global warming peaked in 1998, these accurate measurements show no significant warming only “Natural Variability” of a moderate nature well below the Global Warming Alarmist invalid Computer Climate Model temperature predictions which grossly exaggerated to role of CO2 in the Earth’s Climate! 

      See the quote from Dr. Spencer’s book below:
      “It is often claimed to be part of the consensus that we see the human fingerprints of warming in the climate system. But there are no fingerprints of human-caused warming. … These are all features of warming due to any cause, not just a human cause. Again, this is an issue most adherents to the [purported, but non-existent] consensus are unaware of; they instead are aware of published research supposedly addressing “human fingerprints” of warming when in fact such papers cannot distinguish it.”

      Dr. Roy Spencer is both an eminent Scientist and Meteorologist of the highest caliber with extensive knowledge of our complex climate & weather systems and valid empirical data supporting his positions!

      Al Gore, nor any of his scientists, have dared to debate him on their presumed merits of the Man-Made Global Warming / Man-Made Climate Change hypothesis nor any of their Unfounded Claims for a “Global Warming Catastrophe” in the 21st Century.

  5. Many of us were once Democrats, but over the years the Party leaders became radical and corrupt, therefore we left the Party and either joined the Republican Party, or became an independent or a Libertarian, etc. All sane just Democrats should switch now. If you don’t hate God, Justice, or law enforcement, then leave the Party of chaos that is controlled by Satan.

    1. Too late, there are more liberals, Communists, Marxists and Socialists in the new Democratic party than there are conservatives in the Republican Party. They outnumber us and they will destroy the country soon. Enjoy liberty while you can.

  6. Well that is another one on the “side of the People”. Welcome aboard. A business man that knows exactly what that means.

  7. President Donald J Trump won the 2020 presidential election. DemonRATS have cheated lied and ruined the election with fraudulent votes. Schemes and techs and fakebook, and fake media’s with DIARRHEA OF THERE ROTTEN SHITTY MOUTHS OF LIES, LIES, again and again. WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE RULE AND ALWAYS WILL. WE THE AMERICAN PATRIOTS WILL PREVAIL. JOE BIDEN IS NOTHING BUT A CHEAP LIEING RUTHLESS RAT 🐀. GOD BLESS THE USA AND IN GOD WE TRUST AMEN 🙏
