60 Minutes: 80% of Flint MI children impaired by leaded water

Now New Jersey’s in the same boat.

Physician from the piece: (paraphrase) “If we cannot provide water for our citizens, who are we?”


My prediction:
Those affected are primarily inner city blacks who most certainly face future discrimination by being labeled “dumb” and/or needy. Systemic racism at its “best."

OH (Cincinnati) Democratic councilwoman pleads guilty to fraud


Shortly after 2 p.m. Monday, in a hearing that lasted about 30 minutes, Dennard pleaded guilty to accepting $15,000 as part of a scheme to exchange her votes for money.

Dennard, 41, had already signed a plea agreement ... to honest services wire fraud, meaning she schemed to defraud citizens and the city council of their right to honest services. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

NJ democratic councilmen-elect Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez charged



Two winners in Patterson’s recent ward council elections were charged with voter fraud—specifically the way mail-in ballots are supposed to be collected and filled out.

The six ward elections in Patterson were conducted solely through vote-by mail because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This is the second in several seemingly targeted arrests of democratic representatives in the past week.

OH (Toledo) Council ravaged by democrat arrests

Council members Larry Sykes, Tyronne Riley, Gary Johnson and Yvonne Harper were all arrested Tuesday morning. FBI officials say bribes affected at least three City Council votes over the last two years, ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per bribe from local business owners...
The federal complaint shows that one businessman allegedly bribed Riley at least $2,000 to support a special use permit.
Other bribes listed involved internet cafes on Holland-Sylvania Road, Central Avenue, Reynolds Road and Manhattan Boulevard, not being named by the FBI at this time, where at least $26,000 were given to all four council members and $2,000 to local attorney Keith Mitchell who solicited the payments.
"These council members are charged with federal violations, but they're also charged with violating the public trust and they did that for their own personal financial gain," U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said.
Harper is facing an additional charge for threatening to revoke one tenant's liquor license and bringing negative attention and protests to the location after a dispute unless the tenant compensated her with $25,000.
"The residents of Toledo deserve a city government where every elected official is deeply committed to serving the public rather than themselves."

"The political ramifications of this should not be understated. It's an election year, not in city council. Those members are elected in odd years. It's an even year but it's a presidential election so I think not just Lucas County democrats but democratic officials around the state are concerned about such a high profile scandal of not just one but four democratic elected officials in Lucas County," Miller said.

Twitler would rather get attention for his "white power"-shouting racist protesters than TRE45ON.

Fuck him. He doesn’t get to control the narrative.

Trump doesn't seem to like the military very much.

He’s:

⚰️sanctioned-by-silence Putin’s bounty on US soldiers.
⚰️killed hospitalized VA veterans using them as guinea pigs for his personal profit from hydroxychloroquine.
⚰️sanctioned firing navy Captain Brett Crozier for protecting his fleet from Covid.
⚰️undermined the military code of justice pardoning war criminals.
⚰️reassigned and blocking the promotion of Purple Heart veteran Vindman
⚰️attacked Gold Star families

Hope Biden or Lincoln Project expound on the wa$te.

Camille Cosby

I can’t with her.

Interview on GMA this morning she states that Me Too targets black men with no evidence whatsoever.

Total. Bullshit.

She’s blindly defended her husband throughout his ordeal which is somewhat understandable. What’s not okay is denigrating others in doing so.
