Coal Mining Deaths Soars After Trump Removes Safety Regulations

Accidental deaths in coal mines doubled from the previous year in 2017, according to the most recently available statistics from the Mine Safety and Health Administration.

A more than 100 percent jump in fatalities — from seven last year to 14 in 2017 — does not correspond even remotely to the 3.7 percent increase in available industry jobs over last year.

By comparison, in 2015, the number of mining jobs was 69,000 — 30 percent more than today — but the number of deaths among those jobs topped off at 12.

Under Trump, the agency’s reach to issue citations for problematic mine management has been drastically reduced, suggesting recent death trends might be indicative of a bigger problem in how the agency is treating the conditions that could lead to preventable fatalities.

Now, rather than issuing official citations, the agency primarily relies on extra training sessions for operators at facilities found operating against code.

United Mine Workers of America issued a statement acknowledging that “safety suggestions” — like those issued by the agency this summer to help combat accidental deaths specifically among newer miners — do not carry the same weight as previous administrations’ use of hard and fast citations and fines.

Trump Proposes Budget Cuts to School Safety and Security Funding

Even after this last school shooting, Trump can’t do anything right. The Trump administration’s budget unveiled earlier this week contains millions of dollars worth of CUTS to programs designed to keep schools safe and combat mental illness.

As Politico pointed out, the fiscal year 2019 budget would slash $25 million from a program that promotes school safety and a $400 million grant program that schools can use to deal with bullying and mental health issues.

The budget would also stop funding the School Emergency Response to Violence program (Project SERV), which received $1 million in federal money last year. Department of Education spokesperson Liz Hill told Politico the fund still has $5.2 million in its bank account, however, which she said would likely be enough to cover its needs through 2019.

Former Obama administration official Scott Sargrad, who worked at the Department of Education, told Politico the programs and grants proposed to be cut “are the kinds of things that can help students, staff and teachers respond and recover” after a school shooting such as the one that occurred in Florida on Wednesday.

On the latest episode of “Celebrity Big Brother” cast member Brandi Glanville flat out asks Omarosa Manigault-Newman if she ever had relations with the Commander-In-Chief.

Omarosa answers, and despite her and Trump never hooking up, the controversial reality star said someone in the White House is.

Omarosa revealed that “there’s someone in the White House who’s sleeping with everybody”.

Brandi then claims that some of the women on “The Apprentice” hooked up with Trump behind the scenes. However, Omarosa assures us all that’s not her.
The longtime reality star turned former White House staffer has been spilling major tea on her brief experience as Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison. She recently told another cast member, Ross Matthews, that she was “haunted by tweets” sent out by President Trump. She also revealed that she would try to stop him but Ivanka, her husband Jared, and other members of his staff would keep her far away from him.

Omarosa told Matthews that things in the White House are really bad and she wasn’t successful at easing the president’s many worries. The 44-year-old reality star was reportedly fighting back tears while detailing her experience.

The White House didn’t release the president’s schedule ahead of the visit, but Trump tweeted earlier in the day that he planned to meet “with some of the bravest people on earth,” whose lives “have been totally shattered.”
