With respect to @rokhanna & progressive leaders who think $1 trillion to "state & local govt" is critical—the backroom/corrupt secret of our country is 9 x out of 10, fed money earmarked for states/cities don't actually go to the stated destinations 1/1
From the $170 million Congress passed to Flint to $10.5 billion to New Orleans for Hurricane Katrina...go ask the people of Flint or New Orleans (or local officials) how much of that $ actually went toward #FlintWaterCrisis relief or Hurricane Katrina relief. The SHAMEFUL.. 2/2
reality is federal money earmarked for states and cities often gets diverted to big donors companies/groups, big real estate developers, banks, non-profits (lot of them shams) and other totally unrelated destinations 3/3...

@NealRoth @RoKhanna @rpdandy @rustyhicks @CA_Dem @DNC @JoeBiden @AmarShergillCA Bernie & his supporters are for #Medicare4All, as it turns out, are majority of the nation. But Biden gets funded by the ins co's & wants to keep the waste of mega salaries & shareholder payouts in our health care (which leaves 10 mil w/o care). Bernie needs delegates to fight.
@NealRoth @RoKhanna @rpdandy @rustyhicks @CA_Dem @DNC @JoeBiden @AmarShergillCA Bernie & his delegates also want to #EndBigMoney to political parties which skews the loyalties of parties to wealthy individs & corporations, overriding both the will & the needs of working class Americans (the majority of us) & undermining adequate #ClimateChange response.
@NealRoth @RoKhanna @rpdandy @rustyhicks @CA_Dem @DNC @JoeBiden @AmarShergillCA Bernie & his delegates believe workers deserve a living wage and access to college w/o being slaves to student debt for up to the rest of their lives. The party will not take this up w/o being pushed hard to the left.

EXCLUSIVE: Audio shows ex-MI Gov. Rick Snyder's right-hand-man Rich Baird lying about Snyder/MI officials receiving warnings over Flint's toxic water early on during #FlintWaterCrisis—& allegedly paying off sick Flint couple.

cc @MMFlint @RepDanKildee

metrotimes.com/news-hits/arch…
Baird met w/ sick Flint resident Adam Murphy/then-wife Christina after Adam received media attention for popping off at a 2017 #FlintWaterCrisis town hall. Baird told them the governor/top officials had been told Flint's water problem was "under control" early on. This is a lie.
In October 2014—6 months after the water switch—Snyder's environmental advisor/lawyer Valerie Brader (magna cum laude Harvard graduate) pleaded w/ Snyder's chief of staff, right-hand man Baird & other officials on the "urgent" need to switch Flint off the Flint River. Baird..

EXCLUSIVE: Flint's Adam Murphy was removed from a #FlintWaterCrisis town hall by state officials. Weeks later, Gov Snyder's top adviser was in his living room.

You'll be my "lead poster child," Adam was told w/ the offer for MI-funded medical treatment. But there was a catch...
Richard Baird, who called himself Snyder's "best friend," offered Adam—who was sick w/ seizures & severe cognitive problems after drinking Flint's toxic water—chelation treatment. But Baird told Adam/then-wife they couldn't go to the media or reveal the state was paying for it...
Baird, known in MI government & in Flint as Gov. Snyder's right-hand man and "fixer," framed the state paying for Adam's treatment as a "pilot program." If the chelation was successful at removing lead from Adam's body, the state would make it available to more of Flint...

CALL OUT: Coronavirus is understandably top story, but there's ZERO credible reason why @freepress @detroitnews @flintjournal @AP_Politics @nytimes @washingtonpost @CNN @MSNBC @latimes & others haven't covered bombshell about #FlintWaterCrisis cover-up...
.@JennElizabethJ and I found evidence that ex-Governor Rick Snyder
1) Was Warned about the dangers of Flint using the Flint River a year before the 2014 water switch-and let it go forward anyway
2) Knew about the deadly Legionella outbreak 16 months earlier than he told Congress
3) His top adviser/right-hand man paid off sick Flint residents to silence their public outcries against the administration

4) His top adviser/right-hand man silenced/threatened a key administration whistleblower while there was still time to save lives

#FlintWaterCrisis EXCLUSIVE: Ex-MI Gov. Rick Snyder was warned about hazards of the Flint River a year before the 2014 water switch and became aware of the deadly Legionella outbreak much earlier than he told Congress. By me + @JennElizabethJ vice.com/en_us/article/…
In a 6-month investigation, we found evidence of payoffs of Flint residents, silencing of key Snyder administration whistleblowers, a shady financial deal, and "punishment" of Flint's ex-Mayor for not toeing the administration's line on safe water—all presided over by Snyder
the statute of limitations to press new felony misconduct in office charges related to the #FlintWaterCrisis runs out in 9 days (4/25/14 to 4/25/20). Some lawmakers have called to extend it from 6 years to 10 years...so far unsuccessfully.

If Bernie Sanders was a good person he wouldn't let his campaign staff run amok with lies and edited videos

If he was a good person he would have voted for the public option for healthcare that Hillary tried to pass instead of costing us millions of lives and 20 years
If Bernie sanders was a good person he would have voted for the Magnitsky Act sanctions on Russian individuals for attacking our country on his and Trump's behalf

If he was a good person he would not have voted against relief funds for #FlintWaterCrisis in 2016
If Bernie sanders was a good person he would not be attacking and alienating the party he wants the nomination from and lying to his supporters about Obama support for him in the next breath

He would not have tried to primary Obama

I'm unexpectedly spending extra/looking for a building to rent, because we had to relocate due to KKK activity in our previous area.

The garage is smaller at the new location, so I'm looking for a place to store water, shoe & clothing donations for Flint. gofundme.com/f/SaveFlintCha…

Dear everyone reading this. This campaign has drained me. For almost two years I've dedicated my life to trying to make people care about Flint, and the rejection is taking a toll on my mental health. Even after risking my physical health during research, nobody seems to care.
Sad to announce I might be ending our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign for Flint. Recently Democrats raised almost $5k in 4 hours to send cakes to GOP Senators. Someone raised $100k overnight for a Mariachi Band to play at the White House. Trump's border wall gofundme raised $25M.

These campaign comparisons are proof that America doesn't really care about Flint, Michigan. I'm disappointed in my country & every celebrity/influential voice who ignores Flint. For almost two years I've tried to make people care. They all gave up on Flint. #FlintWaterCrisis
It's traumatic having to finally realize that supporting people with racist beliefs, is now the guaranteed way of receiving dedicated funding for relief missions in America.

The most heartbreaking part about the Flint water crisis, is people were poisoned and died at the hands of their own government. And so many are too consumed with Trump's circus, they're forgetting about reaching back to help their neighbors suffering. #FlintMattersToMe

Social Experiment: Why do so many people seem to care more about animals than humans?

I'm curious to hear the responses. Retweet this and reply if possible.
Six years ago in Cophenhagen, the city’s zoo killed a 2-year-old giraffe named Marius with a bolt gun to prevent inbreeding. His body was dissected in front of schoolchildren, his remains then fed to hungry lions...
Despite 27,000 people signing a petition to stop the killing, and an offer of a new home, the zoo would not be swayed.

The story got international attention — and the public outcry was so extreme that the zoo’s scientific director received death threats.

The gofundme to build a racist border wall reached $25M in one year, all in the news. The gofundme for tall ladders to get over the wall, all in the news. While Flint, MI is struggling to get clean water through gofundme, no news coverage.

America is an embarrassment.
I'd like to also remind everyone of the fact that Flint residents are being ignored because the city is 57% black 41.5% poor. And the government/media doesn't really care about black people. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoWall
Disinvestment in city infrastructure, racial discrimination, political interests, suburban sprawl. All factors in this crisis.

Flint is a third-world country inside the United States, and nobody seems to care. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoWall

Look at these numbers real closely.

Please explain to me how a racist Trump border wall campaign gets 1 million retweets.

But a clean water campaign for Flint can't even get 50k retweets.
