The new governor of Kentucky – a Conservative Republican – will tell the EPA to pound sand. He said he is a strict Constitutionalist and he will not allow Barack Obama to destroy the coal industry in Kentucky. One of the most powerful weapons he has as governor, he said is the Tenth Amendment.
The powers not given to the Federal government are the province of the States, he continued. These cases always come down on the side of the States.
Never in the history of the world, has there been such a demand for coal and Kentucky is sitting on an abundance of it. He will tell the EPA and other unelected officials who have no authority over Kentucky as a state to ‘pound sand’, Bevin said.
They have no legal authority and all they can do is sue and in the meantime, Kentucky will do what it wants, Benin told Glenn Beck on Friday.
