Snyder’s handling of the Flint crisis is being compared to George W. Bush’s handling of Hurricane Katrina
1/11/16 – You may not know about it, but a horrible crisis has been unfolding in Flint, Michigan. Protesters are calling for the arrest of Governor Rick Snyder (R) for negligence in handling one of the state’s worst man-made public health crises.
Here is the background according to MSNBC’s article from 1/11/16:
Even though Snyder’s office did not take appropriate precautions they told the concerned public not to worry and drink the water.
The result? Countless citizens including expectant mothers and children have lead poisoning which has serious long-term consequences and can cause irreversible behavioral and developmental problems.
Snyder has now declared an official emergency, but the residents still have no access to clean drinking water. But the State Police are now delivering bottled water door-to-door.
It gets worse.
The EPA warned the Snyder administration officials about rising lead levels, but the governor did not alert the public and state officials delayed action to address the problem.
FEMA is now involved.
The Detroit Free Press asks the question, “The poverty rate in Flint is 40%; 52% of Flint residents are African-American. And so we are prompted to ask: How would the state have responded to a crisis of such proportions in a community with more wealth and power?”
As I was reading about the water crisis I recalled something Alex Jones had said, that higher lead levels causes violent behavior. I looked it up. My stomach began to churn.
The Chicago Tribune writes, “For those who had been exposed to lead as toddlers, even in small amounts, the scans revealed changes that were subtle, permanent and devastating.”
“…a growing body of research is making it clear that the toxic legacy of lead has far more wide-ranging effects than previously known.”
“Last month, a Tribune investigation found that lead hazards are festering in the same parts of Chicago that have given the city a national reputation for violence and academic failure. In impoverished, crime-ridden neighborhoods like Austin, Englewood and Lawndale, more than 80 percent of the children tested in 1995 had dangerous lead levels.”
“Sampson recently added lead data to his existing research on poverty, education and crime in Englewood and other neighborhoods. The results, he said, were shocking. A map of lead poisoning rates among children younger than 6 in 1995, for instance, looks very similar to a map of aggravated assault rates in 2012, when those kids were 17 to 22 years old.”
Kevin Drum of Mother Jones has summarized all of the available research. Forbes concludes, “The bottom line, as Drum points out, is that ‘even moderately high levels of lead exposure are associated with aggressivity, impulsivity, ADHD, and lower IQ. And right there, you’ve practically defined the profile of a violent young offender.’”
George Monbiot of The Guardian wrote a great piece, albeit highly disturbing, on the subject. He concludes, “Is it really so surprising that a highly potent nerve toxin causes behavioural change? The devastating and permanent impacts of even very low levels of lead on IQ have been known for many decades.”
“African Americans have been subjected to higher average levels of lead poisoning than white Americans. One study, published in 1986, found that 18% of white children but 52% of black children in the US had over 20 milligrammes per decilitre of lead in their blood; another found that, between 1976 and 1980, black infants were eight times more likely to be carrying the horrendous load of 40mg/dl.”
“There is only one remaining manufacturer of tetraethyl lead on earth. It’s based in Ellesmere Port in Britain, and it’s called Innospec. The product has long been banned from general sale in the UK, but the company admits on its website that it’s still selling this poison to other countries(27). Innospec refuses to talk to me, but other reports claim that tetraethyl lead is being exported to Afghanistan, Algeria, Burma, Iraq, North Korea, Sierra Leone and Yemen(28,29), countries afflicted either by chaos or by governments who don’t give a damn about their people.” (Bold emphasis mine)
“In 2010 the company admitted that, under the name Associated Octel, it had paid millions of dollars in bribes to officials in Iraq and Indonesia to be allowed to continue, at immense profit, selling tetratethyl lead(30). Through an agreement with the British and US courts, Innospec was let off so lightly that Lord Justice Thomas complained that “no such arrangement should be made again.”(31) God knows how many lives this firm has ruined.”
“The UK government tells me that because tetraethyl lead is not on the European list of controlled exports, there is nothing to prevent Innospec from selling to whoever it wants. There’s a term for this: environmental racism.”
“If it is true that lead pollution, whose wider impacts have been recognised for decades, has driven the rise and fall of violence, then there lies, behind the crimes that have destroyed so many lives and filled so many prisons, a much greater crime.”

With all the instigating of racial division currently being conducted by the globalists, and I might add peddled by the forces of darkness, I couldn’t help but wonder: Could this disaster in Flint have been planned?
The EPA intentionally contaminated the Animus, San Juan and Colorado rivers in August! It was polluted with guess what? Lead and arsenic among other things.
A retired geologist tried to warn of the impending disaster, as reported in RT News:
“While the agency has maintained that the release of toxic sludge from the Gold King mine was an accident, one retired geologist speculated the EPA might have been setting the area up for a disaster in order to get more federal funding.
“Based on my 47 years of experience as a professional geologist, it appears to me that the EPA is setting your town and the area up for a possible Superfund blitzkrieg,” Dave Taylor of Farmington wrote in a letter to the editors of the Silverton Standard, published July 30. The paper confirmed the letter’s authenticity in a blog post on August 12.
The EPA’s grand experiment to plug the Red & Bonita mine might seem to work at first, Taylor wrote, but he predicted the water would find a way out and “exfiltrate uncontrollably through connected abandoned shafts, drifts, raises, fractures, and possibly from talus on the hillsides.”
Taylor further anticipated that all of the water flow would return to Cement Creek within anywhere from a week to 120 days and could even increase the contamination.
“Reading between the lines, I believe that has been EPA’s plan all along. The proposed Red & Bonita plugging plan has been their way of getting a foot in the door to justify their hidden agenda for construction of a treatment plant,” he wrote.”
Everyone knows about lead poisoning! For decades we’ve known that children in inner cities often have toxic levels of lead in their scalps from contaminated shower water! Everyone knows what happens when you erode pipes and water infrastructure that is already ailing!
Is that why there have been so many “delays”, and the delays continue in providing help to the residents? It certainly will stir up a lot of unrest…with an affected citizenry that is mostly black.
We talk about it a lot on this site, about the despicable goals of the NWO. And a major part of that is the credo “order out of chaos.” They create the chaos then use the chaos as the excuse to declare martial law or to set up false flag events or some other dastardly scheme.
While I have no evidence at this point that the Flint water disaster was planned, the longer I’ve watched these patterns and understand the agenda that these truly evil people have, I’ve discovered that more and more of these events we supposed were accidental were in fact designed; and not just to cause trouble, but designed to inflict unspeakable suffering and war and death.
Even if it was planned, we don’t know who knew, and it doesn’t mean that the Governor knew. He could have been a pawn like so many others.
Wow, I guess the Bible was right again:
“He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” – John 8:44
“The thief (the devil) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I (Yeshua Jesus) came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” – John 10:10
“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” – 1 Peter 5:8
I was so bothered by this that I had to pause to pray. I’m sick of the Lord of Darkness causing so much suffering and it makes me angry…that’s called righteous anger.
How do we combat these forces that seem to be gaining power daily?
We combat it by daily putting on the armor of God. Then do something! When Christians are doing what they are supposed to the forces of darkness cannot gain so much ground.
The Armor of God
10“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.13Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 15and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; 16in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.17And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints”
We have each been chosen to be born at such a time as this. You must stand up, put on your armor, and learn how to fight the forces of darkness: it is what you are meant to do!
We do NOT yield to minions from hell trying to divide us based on race, color, gender or background (Galations 3:28). Our savior died once for all (John 3:16), and we are all grafted in (Romans 11:24) to the same vine. We are all one body in Yeshua Jesus (Galations 3:28)! We stand shoulder to shoulder knowing who holds the victory (1 Corinthians 15:57)! And the gates of hell cannot stand (Matthew 16:18) against the Lord and His anointed!
If we stand together the way we were meant to we will live out our purpose which brings joy and fulfillment and victory in Christ! We will see great things in these last days. But historically the times of wondrous moves of God were in times of trial. Things will be very different, but we will see God move to show Himself strong, even in the midst of the judgement that is falling on the world…and especially this nation which has really wracked up a debt of rebellion.
Get your armor on and stand up for what’s right! We must care for what is happening to our neighbors and our brothers and sisters in Christ. If you don’t, what attacks your neighbor in his yard may soon be attacking you in yours.
