Don Blankenship Ruffles More Feathers with his book “Obama’s Deadliest Cover-Up”

Constitution Party Nominee for President Attacks Obama and Biden on Energy, Environment, and the Truth


Williamson, WV – Former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship has been nominated by the Constitution Party as their nominee for President of the United States for 2020. Blankenship stated, “I am running for President to let people know how dire the American situation is and what must be done to fix it. We cannot survive as a country if we do not stop the Republican and Democrat nonsense.”

Citing his displeasure with the corruption and ignorance in Washington DC, Blankenship says something must be done if America is to return to the country it once was. He has frequently spoken out about the insanity of our trade policies, the elite’s misplaced obsession with environmental extremism, misguided unions, and illegal immigration.

Blankenship calls is plan The Third Way Plan for America. Available at www.DonBlankenship.com his plan has three principles: Equality, Ethics, and Exactness. Said Blankenship, “Americans must stand up for right versus wrong, not Republican versus Democrat. If we follow my THIRD WAY we can get back to solving problems for ordinary Americans, instead of worrying if it makes the two major political parties and their corporate media sponsors happy.”

And Blankenship knows first-hand about legalized corruption. An unflinching look at corruption in America, his book “Obama's Deadliest Cover-up” issues a dire warning: Our government will do anything to "get what it wants."

In 2010, a mine explosion killed twenty-nine coal miners in Raleigh County, West Virginia. “Obama's Deadliest Cover-up” goes beyond the official narrative of the 2010 Upper Big Branch (UBB) Mine disaster to disclose the dark truth. In this daring exposé, Don Blankenship reveals how far the government will go to keep its dirty secrets, even if it means disparaging deceased miners and sending innocent Americans to prison.

Using government documents, witness testimony, and science, Blankenship pieces together the Obama-Biden administration's responsibility for the explosion. Blankenship explains how the government used prevarication, lies, and document destruction to bury the truth. Blankenship calls the American media "Pinocchio" and backs it up. Blankenship demonstrates that America's elite, America's media, and America's DOJ hid the UBB truth and says, "They all have blood on their hands."

Don Blankenship was "born into a poor house, dined at the White House, and spent time in the big house." Blankenship grew up in Appalachia, worked as a teenage coal miner, and later became CEO of Massey Energy Company, a then publicly traded Fortune 600 company.

Blankenship has been an active participant in West Virginia politics, and is widely regarded as the single individual who drove extreme liberals out of power in that state. During a speech at the Tug Valley Mining Institute on November 20, 2008, Blankenship called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senator Harry Reid and former Vice President Al Gore "crazies" and "greeniacs." He has also spoken out against media coverage and what he calls false attacks by liberal media. He has long cautioned that America’s dependence on China would someday come back to haunt Americans.

A graduate of Marshall University and a Certified Public Accountant, Blankenship still calls West Virginia home but spends a lot of his time in Nevada. He has two grown children and five grandchildren.

Constitution Party Chooses Don Blankenship as Presidential Nominee

The Constitution Party held its Presidential Nominating Convention telephonically on May 1 and 2, 2020. Don Blankenship from West Virginia received the nomination for president from among 5 candidates. William Mohr from Michigan was chosen as the Vice-Presidential candidate.

Don Blankenship just published his book, Obama’s Deadliest Cover-Up, about the 2010 Upper Big Branch (UBB) Mine disaster to disclose the dark truth. In this daring exposé, Don Blankenship reveals how far the government will go to keep its dirty secrets. Blankenship went to prison for a year on a misdemeanor. Since then a Federal Judge recommended that Blankenship’s conviction be voided for prosecutorial misconduct. www.donblankenship.com

“It is an honor to have been chosen to be the Constitution Party candidate for President of the United States,” stated Don Blankenship. “Americans now have an opportunity to truly make America Great Again.”

“As President, the American people and I will also Make Detroit Great Again, Make New York Great Again, Make Philadelphia Great Again, and Make All American Cities Great Again.

We will no longer spend American taxpayer money to police the world. Instead that money will be used to police our cities and end the opiate drug epidemic”, he continued.

“We will no longer allow corporations to use illegal immigrant labor to depress the minimum wage nor to take jobs away from American workers. We will end sanctuary cities, stop providing healthcare for non-Americans, and use that money to provide better healthcare for America’s poor and elderly,” Blankenship stated.

“We will no longer export our American jobs to China nor import their viruses into our homes. We will live by the motto that ‘charity begins at home’. We will end foreign aid until there are no homeless Americans. We will make our medicines, our cars, our beer, our cell phones, our steel, and our future here in America.”

“We will do all of this for the sake of our children and our country, while protecting and defending our Constitutional rights.”

“The simple reason you should elect me to be your President is that I will be exactly that—your President. Every action I take will be in the best interest of America and Americanism,” concluded Don Blankenship Presidential Candidate of the Constitution Party.

William (Bill) Mohr was chosen as the Vice-Presidential candidate. He is the State Chairman of the Michigan U.S. Taxpayers Party, the state affiliate of the Constitution Party. He has built a vibrant party in Michigan under his leadership.

‘“If you want the results you used to get, you have to do the things you used to do.” The foundations cannot be repaired using new ideas. It cannot be repaired by implementing “change”. It must be repaired by adhering to the principles upon which it was established. Anything short of that will result in continued failure, continued loss of liberties, continued loss of freedom, and progressive misery upon the American people,’ stated Bill Mohr, Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Constitution Party.

The Constitution Party National Committee also elected officers for the next four years including: National Chairman, James Clymer from Pennsylvania, Vice-Chairman Doug Aden from Colorado, Secretary, Paula Hospelhorn from Arizona, Treasurer Gerald Kilpatrick from Colorado. Regional Chairmen (listed first) and Co-Chairmen who serve on the Executive Committee included: Eastern Region, David P. Kopacz from Massachusetts, Nicholas Sumbles from Maryland, Southern Region, Thom Holmes from Oklahoma, Kevin Hayes from North Carolina, Mid-West Region, John Blazek from Missouri, Matthew Shepard from Michigan, Western Region, Janine Hansen from Nevada, Kirk Pearson from Utah.

was examinerIn the below article the reporter has confused China person with Chinese or Asian Person. The activities of Elaine Chao’s family do not concern me because she is Asian or Chinese. They concern me because her husband Mitch McConnell, the United States Senate Majority Leader, would perhaps benefit personally if “China” wins the trade and/or currency war with the United States.

Americans do not share that conflict of interest with Mitch. Americans want America to benefit from the ultimate outcome of both the currency and the trade war. If America wins they win. They do not want Communist China, nor Mitch or nor his in-laws to be the beneficiaries. The Chao family has benefited enough from the China American trade policy the past 50 years.

Someone needs to tell this reporter that China is a country and it will be America’s competitor for leader of the world throughout our children and our grandchildren’s lifetimes.

fake newsDear Friends:


Today Thursday March 14, 2019 my attorneys filed on my behalf a lawsuit against some of the fake news and Washington D.C. “swampers”. The fake news outlets include, among others, MSNBC, CNN and, sadly, Fox News and the guy Fox holds out to be their legal expert, Judge Napolitano. Amongst the swampers are the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), several of their operatives and possibly even some of their larger donors. At its core, the lawsuit is a defamation claim but broadly, it comes down to the swamp and mainstream media colluding to interfere in the 2018 United States Senate election right here in West Virginia.
 

The lawsuit also makes clear that the purposeful and illegal defamation was carried out as a result of collusion with and encouragement from Republican government officials.

Don 61. BLANKENSHIP RELEASES TWEETS SAYING CONGRESS AND MEDIA PUTTING POLITICAL PARTIES ABOVE AMERICA

2. You can tell that politicians are putting their Political Party above our country when all Dems say X and all Reps say Y.

3. America is going broke while Political Party fundraising skyrockets. Lies, waste, and corruption are the major growth industries in Washington DC.

4. Our Media which is suppose to defend Americans from the government is instead no better than a communist state owned media. It supports and defends government lies from American truths.

5. Only the mainstream media personalities, career politicians, and Americans whose voice cannot be heard have free speech rights.

Don 6My apologies up front for the length and complexity of this post and release. But we hope it will be of interest and concern to you. It will require that you read it carefully.

Last Thursday my attorneys filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump, Jr. The lawsuit has to do with slanderous defaming tweets Trump Jr sent out around May 3rd last year, ie a few days before the West Virginia Primary election. Essentially, Junior’s tweets said, “that I went to prison for actions that led to the deaths of twenty-nine coal miners”. This statement is totally false.

We drafted a press release Thursday night explaining why we sued Trump Jr. Our intent was to inform as many Americans as possible. We sent the press release to a company called PR Newswire. PR Newswire is a major distributor of news stories and articles throughout the country. PR Newswire charges a fee for distributing press releases and we were paying that fee in advance. However, PR Newswire refused to distribute our release. They sent us an email explaining why.

We then sent them another press release and again offered to pay them their regular fee to distribute it. This second press release simply said that PR Newswire would not distribute our first press release announcing the lawsuit against Trump Jr. We attached to this second press release their email to us.

As noted earlier, former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship filed a $12-billion defamation suit against multiple media companies and individuals. He based much of his suit on his claim that the federal government, specifically the Obama-era Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), forced his company to use inadequate ventilation of the Upper Big Branch coal mine. Within hours of implementing the MSHA-mandated ventilation plan, there was a natural gas (as distinct from coal bed methane) explosion that killed twenty-nine miners.

 

While his case moves forward, it is interesting to note that a suit filed by the widow of one of those miners, Carolyn Diana Davis, has been settled by the federal government. SRN News reported:

 

The widow of a West Virginia coal miner who was among 29 men killed in the 2010 Upper Big Branch mine explosion has settled a lawsuit against the federal government for $550,000.

It may be Spring according to the calendar, but America's dominant media outlets are heading toward a brutal winter season when it comes to accountability for the actions. Not just a reckoning for pushing a hoax about Russian collusion with a presumed treasonous Donald, but potentially gigantic judgments in courtrooms. Recently, two parties have filed notable defamation lawsuits against powerful press outlets. The most talked about has been the 2 (so far) filed on the behalf of Nicholas Sandmann, the young student from Covington Catholic High School. His attorney has filed in Kentucky. Given that the press is so unaware of the attitudes of potential fly-over country jurors that they failed to predict the election of President Trump and failure of the Mueller probe, they may not recognize the financial threat those suits pose to their future. Time will tell. The settlement prices are in the $250 million range.

 

But my personal interest is in the most complex and nuanced suit filed on behalf of Don Blankenship, the unsuccessful Republican candidate for the Senate seat now held by Democrat Joe Manchin. His suit asks for $12 billion! Talk about “the audacity of hope”! So, I spoke to one of his attorneys, Eric Early of Early, Sullivan, Wright, Gizer & McRae. We had a pleasant, but brief conversation. The core of his position is that they firmly believe that Mr. Blakenship has been defamed and that he will win at trial. He suggested that anyone with an interest in their position read their filing with the court.

Don Blankenship, a retired coal tycoon and former CEO of the Massey Energy Company, may well have unleashed the largest defamation lawsuitin history against dozens of mainstream media companies and personalities. The groundbreaking suit, filed on March 14th, targets dozens of news outlets and media personalities that allegedly referred to Blankenship as a “felon,” during his 2018 bid for U.S. Senate in West Virginia, after they previously reported he was found innocent on all felony charges.

 

Blankenship’s lawsuit accuses the outlets of launching a coordinated assault that robbed his chances of winning the West Virginia Republican Primary election. Blankenship was known for running a trailblazing campaign that sought to “drain the swamp” in Washington D.C., promising to fight hard against the establishment status quo.

 

The media companies targeted in the suit derived Blankenship’s “felon” epithet from his association with “The Upper Big Branch Mine disaster” which claimed the lives of 29 miners at the site. The explosion was later determined to have resulted from improper airflow, which was changed eight hours earlier by government mandate.
