DEBATE TONIGHT!!

BTW, the Democrats are debating tonight for 3hrs on ABC (no paywall). Out of curiosity, those with interest in the future may want to watch. If for no other reason you are likely to see and hear the candidates make cogent cases addressing the pabulum espoused by the corporate media hosts. There may even be a few opportunities for them to speak truthfully to real issues known to be prioritized by the majority of citizens of these United States.

Get it now, as most of what we hear “about” them must pass through the for profit corporate biased interests. The winner must then pretend to engage in serious debate/banter with our liar cannon of a President. He will go to any lengths to misinform and distract the masses from issues of social and existential import.

from below - because the new plan required the construction of an expensive pipeline. "Genesee County and Flint authorities saw the new water treatment as a public infrastructure project to create jobs in an area which is why it enjoyed the **bipartisan support** of Michigan's Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, **Democratic State Treasurer Any Dillion** and Flint's **Democrat** city council. Once again the admitted racist & ISIS supporter anticorp bends the truth which from this chronic low class obnoxious hate monger gasbag is to be expected.

To help the admitted racist,hate monger hypocrite and ISIS supporter anticorp learn, lets look at some real facts about Democrat destroyed Flint and it's water problems. The problems were very old rust laden pipes long before any Republican Gov. When switching water sources years & years of built up lead was released. The decision to cancel Flint's 30-year-old contract with the Detroit Water and Sewage Department and switch to the Karegnondi Water Authority was made in part because the new plan required the construction of an expensive pipeline. "Genesee County and Flint authorities saw the new water treatment as a public infrastructure project to create jobs in an area that has never recovered after Michigan's auto industry fled to sunnier business climes elsewhere, The plan was pure fiscal stimulus, see above

It's what Republicans do for corporate profiteers:

WASHINGTON — "The Trump administration on Thursday is expected to complete the legal repeal of a major Obama-era clean water regulation, which had placed limits on polluting chemicals that could be used near streams, wetlands and water bodies."

Another example of NB/DOA blunderbuss of lies?

Republican Gov Snyder’s role

He said, "Government failed you at the federal, state and local level. We need to make sure this never happens again in any Michigan city."

To a significant degree, the buck does stop with Snyder, the state’s top elected official. And Snyder set the tone of curbing municipal overspending. "There was a lot of wishful thinking by which the tax-cutters dreamed that they could keep on cutting taxes without having any real consequences," said Charles L. Ballard, an economist at Michigan State University. "But tax cuts of this magnitude, some of which were passed during the first year of Gov. Snyder’s administration, were bound to have real consequences."

As if anyone didn't know NB was lying:

Crucially, Snyder also appointed the emergency managers who signed off on the switch away from Detroit’s water system and the decision to use Flint River water as an interim solution.

And two state agencies he oversaw -- the Department of Environmental Quality and the Department of Health and Human Services -- contributed significantly to the problem. Officials at those agencies were warned early and repeatedly by Miguel Del Toral, an official at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, that they were putting Flint residents at risk by not instituting anti-corrosion safeguards for Flint River water. Agency officials also initially dismissed warnings from Virginia Tech researchers and Flint pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha, even after being prodded on the question by a senior Snyder aide. As a subtext: This is a classic example of ignoring scientists.

"If the government were interested in stopping gangs - and as a result also stopping the major contributor of gun violence IN AMERICA - the gun laws would be more targeted. Yet most gun control legislation would do little-to-nothing to slow the growing gang problem. Most of the gun laws are aimed at a segment of the population that is mostly law-abiding and outside of the gang culture and would likely do little to stop any of the violence" JPFO News. Join the NRA today & protect your rights. "Liberals have ruined public and "higher" indoctrination "education" in the USA. "Liberals"/Democrats continue to destroy our cities. "Liberals" have destroyed 95% of REAL journalism & "media" reporting in the country. Final step. Get the guns. Mission complete. Like Khrushchev said "We'll take you without firing a shot- we will bury you" I sometimes wonder. Thank God for Trump!

Democrat ruined cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Cleveland, and New Orleans all have very high per-capita murder rates. Individual police estimates usually find at least 65% and often more than 80% of all murders in those cities are gang-related. Solve the problem of gang violence, and a huge chunk of the gun homicide and violence problem is solved. And what national gun control measures would slow the gang violence problem, when local gun control laws have failed in cities like Chicago? **If politicians were really worried about gun deaths, wouldn't they be specifically targeting where a majority of the problems exist**?

"To hear gun control advocates speak, one would be led to believe that gun violence is a widespread problem whereby the- mere existence of a gun- is as much a problem as the person who intends to wield it. But the reality is that gun homicides are overwhelmingly tied to gang violence. In fact, a staggering 80% of gun homicides are gang-related. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Ex. - gang homicides accounted for roughly 8,900 of 11,100 gun murders in both 2010 and 2011. That means that there were just 2,200 non gang-related firearm murders in both years in a country of over 300 million people and 250 million guns" THAT was in 2011 The percentages remain roughly the same today. see above

While "liberals" continue to run hide and lie - "There are roughly 32,000 gun deaths per year in the United States. Of those, around 60% are suicides. About 3% are accidental deaths (less than 1,000). About 34% of deaths (just over 11,000 in both 2010 and 2011) make up the remainder of gun deaths. Sometimes the 32,000 and 11,000 figures are used interchangeably by gun control advocates. Clearly, the 32,000 figure is a far more dramatic number and is often used for impact" - cont. above

NB, Don’t waste your time and anger at being outed for the crushing reality u and your ilk (REPUBLICANS) have vectored on all of earth’s mammals. We are living the beginning.

It is pretty much inevitable now, with 2 more years of the mentally incompetent in the White House. You might want to work on answers for your children and grand children, why u chose to support the profiteers over the scientists. I recommend you form a club and call it End time Handmaidens .

Oh, BTW,

Twit administration’s “Mulvaney is referring to the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which called for construction of 700 miles of fencing and enhanced surveillance technology, such as unmanned drones, ground-based sensors, satellites, radar coverage and cameras. Sen. Chuck Schumer and then-Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were among a bipartisan majority that voted in favor of the legislation, and it was signed into law by President George W. Bush. In a very general sense, the Democrats named by Mulvaney supported a bill to build more border fencing in 2006, and Trump is now asking for money to build a wall and fencing. But the scope and political context of the two efforts are quite different.” Facts from FactCheck

Can u imagine Greta Thunberg (Swedish) will be protesting Climate Change in front of the White House Friday 9-13 and none of the President’s administration or family will make overtures to this Nobel Peace Prize nominee?

Then again, they are anti-climate, science and climate justice.

Wonder if she would like to immigrate to the U.S.?

When will the admitted racist & ISIS supporter lying anticorp, ever stop lying? NEVER! Lol!! He can't. "The truth is that Flint, Michigan is an extreme case of what -always happens- to cities after --generations-- of Democrat governance, just like the Democrat Wonder City of Detroit, their peaceful Shangri-La of Ferguson, Missouri, their gun-free paradise of Chicago, hurricane-ravaged New Orleans or Washington, D.C., which had a water crisis similar to Flint’s a decade ago. We’re not supposed to piece together that every single disaster area has been Democrat-dominated for generations" (Breitbart)&(common sense)

Disgusting "liberal" slob & hypocrite, filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted, “Flint has voted for Dems for 84 straight yrs” and wanted to know, “What did it get us?” He’s actually on to something. Backtracking to Moore’s tweet. "Flint is indeed a Democratic Party bastion. Don’t its decades of Democratic dominance deserve some of the blame?" It’s the city’s "Democratic rulers," Reason magazine’s Robby Soave reminds us, who have "robbed city residents blind to pad the pockets of public sector unions." They’ve also been in charge as Flint has become one the country’s poorest cities (the second poorest, says the Census Bureau, for a city of its size), and a haven for criminals - it’s the most dangerous city in America. When will the running racist ISIS supporter anticorp ever stop lying? NEVER!

Wilbur Ross called NOAA acting administrator Neil Jacobs Friday night and told him the agency needed to take Trump’s side and say that Alabama was in danger, the New York Times reported, citing three people familiar with the matter. When Jacobs refused, Ross said he would fire the agency’s political appointees. Forbes - also reported on Fox

NB clearly those speaking the truth about Republicans, Trump and Putin are hate media. They are supposed to cover for Trump's method of communicating as a corporate promoter and then later denying or flip-flopping to keep everyone confused (or he is confused or without knowledge).

The CIA today blasted the King Of Lying/Fake News Networks - CNN for lying - AGAIN. The American people must find a way & the courage to demand honest unbiased reporting. Fake news hate Trump networks like "liberal" owned and run CNNABCMSMBC must be charged with hate crimes and fined millions per incidence, for false totally biased reporting which they do 24/7 concerning anything Trump. They all must be centrally controlled - when u flip between them on Monday they are -all- using the SAME negative word(s)script about Trump. Tuesday, different word of the day - BUT - ALL networks broadcasting the - SAME negative word script - all networks repeating it like good puppets. Wed.? same thing. Just a different word! This is way past scary to rational people that love the USA. Our "liberal" "media" & Democrat "liberals" have become true enemies of freedom.
