Republican primary candidate in West Virginia, Don Blankenship AND White House Aide Kelly Sadler- Blankenship, who was reported to be “on a roll” the weekend before last Tuesday’s 3 am primary, came in third. He had just finished a one year sentence in federal prison for his role in the deaths of 29 miners in the Upper Big Branch coal mine in West Virginia that he essentially controlled. Safety violations were the reasons investigators determined the catastrophe occurred. Blankenship had been cited over twenty times by the federal government for safety violations, but skirted their orders to repair the mine.
WH Aide Kelly Sadler, defended the torture queen Gina Haspel saying the vote looked better because Sen. John McCain, a strong opponent of Haspel, is “dying anyway”. McCain was tortured for six years in a prison camp by the North Vietnamese.
About Beckel’s Bob Cast
After a successful 25-year stint over the airwaves, Bob Beckel wants more. He has seen the good side of politics, and the very ugly side as well. Throwing jabs and defending the Democrats isn’t good enough anymore. Calling out this administration as well as his side is the name of the game now. Beckel is back and better than ever with his very own and specially tailored podcast!
Nearly half a century in politics, Bob Beckel is and has the belly of the beast. A veteran in the field, on camera, and on The Hill, Beckel has seen it all. Calling it like he sees it, he has curated a name for himself in more ways than one with his charismatic demeanor and expertise as a pollster. He has appeared on networks such as CNN, Fox News, CBS, and ABC as well as authoring two books, “Common Ground” and his gritty, yet very enticing autobiography, “I Should Be Dead” . Starting his career as the youngest Assistant Deputy Secretary of State and then transitioning into the Carter White House, Beckel gained legislative experience early. In the early 80’s, he ran more than two dozen congressional campaigns, including Walter Mondale’s 1984 presidential campaign against Ronald Reagan. As one of the creators of “grass roots organizing”, he started “Bob Beckel & Associates” working closely with members of Congress again before fully moving into the media world in the early 90s.
