The left's opposition to mining threatens its green dream

Environmental activists who oppose mining minerals in the United States are threatening the same green agenda they claim to embrace. Among those leading the attack is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, who proposes banning mining on public lands.

A partisan impeachment

Destroying is much easier than building. As his relentless adversaries file into the U.S. Senate Tuesday to judge articles of impeachment brought against President Trump, they open the door for irreparable damage to a system of justice founded on both the U.S. Constitution and American common sense. There can be no justice without fairness.

Senate must dismiss articles

Most fair-minded Americans, whether Republican, Democrat or independent, were aware of and disturbed by the unfair, partisan impeachment process that denied the Republicans and President Donald Trump witnesses or documents. The thing most harmed, however, was our Constitution's fundamentals of fair process, equal justice for all, and innocent until proven guilty. The House has attempted to have the legislative branch override the authority the president has under our Constitution.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seems to take great delight in stating that President Trump is now impeached and nothing will ever change that ("Nancy Pelosi's revenge: Trump is 'impeached for life,'" Web, Jan. 13).
