Trump protesters are mindless rabble organized by communists

I would like to thank the Donald Trump protesters who are inciting violence at Trump’s rallies. This has been invaluable to Trump supporters like myself. You folks have given us what monetary donations could not. Your actions are worth a thousand words. Your actions have convinced Americans that, indeed, we do need a no-nonsense president like Trump in the Oval Office. You have demonstrated to us that you are anarchists. You have demonstrated to us — Democrats, independents and Republicans alike — that you are mindless rabble organized by the Bernies, Bill Ayers and other assorted commies who have ventured out from beneath their rocks over the last decade, emboldened by the progressive spring that is now in its last days courtesy of your violence. I thank you for that.

Phillips 66 plan would make air quality worse

Air pollution from microscopic particulate matter coming off the Oceano Dunes can make it difficult for people with respiratory problems to breathe, especially on very windy days.
