Is Hillary going to Flint for a photo op....or to roll a few heads?

Just wondering.....and will she pick up a check or two on the way?

February 6, 2016

Why for fours years did Hillary ask all of us to help pay off her 10 million dollar campaign debt?

while she was making millions speaking??? I'm just asking because I find it offensive, when you're making money like that, and you don't want anyone to know what you're saying to make that money, and you certainly know that you are running for president.

Again, just asking. I received many, many, emails asking for help from her.

Did anyone else here?

Would Hillary be going to Michigan if Ohio were getting all of the attention?


Dangerous Levels Of Lead Found In An Ohio City’s Water System

by Alex Zielinski Jan 25, 2016 4:47 pm

As all eyes are on the water contamination crisis plaguing Flint, Michigan, another U.S. city is grappling with similar questions about whether its public officials ignored warning signs suggesting its tap water wasn’t safe to drink.

It’s been two months since the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency first identified excessive levels of lead in the town of Sebring’s public water system. However, despite the EPA’s requirements to inform the public by the end of November, Sebring residents were only told of the contamination last week.

Coming just days after President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in Flint — where residents have been exposed to toxic levels of lead in their own water system — this news isn’t being taken lightly by Ohio officials. On Monday, the state ordered the suspension of Sebring Water Superintendent Jim Bates amid a criminal investigation into claims that he may have falsified reports on the city’s lead levels.


Well, I'll just bet the people of Ohio would like to know when she'll be arriving.

How 'Millennials' see the candidates

The Millennials consider Hillary Clinton to be Professor Dolores Umbridge to Bernie Sanders' professor Albus Dumbledore of Harry Potter fame. An establishment figure one cannot trust!

February 6, 2016

Why is Hillary going to Flint? They need things done now, and she's not in office.

So, why is time wasted here, when people have been poisoned?

I'm just wondering why those in office, and can APPROPRIATE funds are not invited??????

I find this strange, and smells like politicking still, with those city limits. What a shame.

Video: Clinton Voter Fraud In Action? What a 'fuster cluck'!


This is, apparently, what a caucus looks like in a Presidential race in America in 2016.
The footage is taken from precinct #43 in Des Moines, Iowa, where supporters of Clinton and Sanders gathered to determine the delegate count for the candidates.
The description of the video, posted on the C-SPAN website, claims “Caucus chair and Clinton precinct captain do not conduct actual count of Clinton supporters and deliberately mislead caucus”. Reports suggest that Sanders was winning during an initial vote, but when a recount was called, Clinton gained the lead.

One person who was at the event at Roosevelt High School took to Reddit to explain:
So basically in the caucus they have to hand count everyone depending on what side they’re sitting on. Well when it came time to do the second count the numbers were off. The first vote breakdown was like this:

FIRST VOTE: 215 Sanders 210 Clinton 26 O’Malley 8 Undecided 459 TOTAL
And this is the SECOND Vote: 232 Clinton 224 Sanders 456 Total
So somehow they lost 3 people but Clinton’s vote went up by 14.

So basically what had happened was Hillary’s team didn’t take the time to do a full recount instead she just added the new people who joined the second vote. Which clearly wasn’t an accurate count.

The footage appears to verify this with the Clinton camp admitting they did not do a second full count and that “they just added the (new) people”.

“Does that add up right?” one of the organizer is heard asking the caucus chair, who replies “I don’t think so.”
Nevertheless, a challenge by Sanders supporters for a third count was rejected and Clinton was handed a victory. This monumental cluster f*ck was just one 1,600 caucus sites around the state of Iowa. Who knows what went on elsewhere.

In another video, Clinton and Sanders supporters are seen remonstrating with caucus organizers in Ames who were attempting to move the caucus outside, refusing to start counting votes because their building was too full.

The incident led to much finger pointing and apparently many people abandoning the caucus and going home.
