The New America, in progress

I'm certain this disaster has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with the changing demographics of Flint, which has seen the Non-Hispanic Whites population fall from 70.1 percent of the population to 35.7 percent since 1970:
“The City of Flint has experienced a Manmade disaster,” said the city’s mayor Monday evening, as she declared a state of emergency over evidently staggering levels of lead in the city’s tap water. Mayor Karen M. Weaver has requested federal assistance to deal with the fallout from over a year’s worth of tainted water delivered to Flint residents and, allegedly, falsely declared safe by government officials.

In September, news broke that lead contamination was on the rise in Flint. Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha of the Hurley Medical Center concluded that since the water supply switched from the Detroit system to Flint River in April 2014, the number of infants and children with elevated levels of lead in their blood had doubled, from 2.1% to 4%. While the rise seems small, it is statistically significant. Even so, Attisha warned: “My research shows that lead levels have gone up. I cannot say it’s from the water. But that’s, you know, the thing that has happened.“

The World Health Organization says “lead affects children’s brain development resulting in reduced intelligence quotient (IQ), behavioral changes such as shortening of attention span and increased antisocial behavior, and reduced educational attainment. Lead exposure also causes anemia, hypertension, renal impairment, immunotoxicity and toxicity to the reproductive organs. The neurological and behavioral effects of lead are believed to be irreversible.”

The high levels of lead have been attributed to old pipes and plumbing, which researchers say rubs off more into Flint River water than it does other sources. Because the water itself is more corrosive than other supplies, it erodes the pipes it flows through, picking up lead along the way.

Flint River is one of the filthiest rivers in Michigan. Over the years, it has housed raw sewage, tires, old refrigerators — which residents have attempted to sift out — and lead. In spite of this, officials declared it safe to drink in April 2014, when they switched the supply to the tainted river.

The change was widely attributed to the city’s switch from Detroit’s water system to the Flint River under the leadership of the city’s previous mayor, Dayne Walling. The shift in supply was a result of failed procedures and negotiations to continue purchasing the water.

Shortly after the April switch, residents complained the water emitted a foul odor and was cloudy in appearance, but local and state officials insisted the water was safe. In spite of these assurances, in January 2015, MLive reported the State Department of Environmental Quality had “issued a notice of violation of the Safe Drinking Water Act for maximum contaminant levels for trihalomethanes — or TTHM — a group of four chemicals that are formed as a byproduct of disinfecting water.”

These chemical byproducts are linked to cancer and other diseases, and presented a separate issue from the lead.

The water was so dirty that in October 2014, General Motors announced it would no longer use treated Flint River water at its engine plant out of fears it would cause corrosion.
It's probably just Bad Luck. Or Evil Liberal policies, who are randomly adopted by various polities for No Reason At All. Perhaps they should consider importing some Magic Dirt to combat the bad juju in the water. Or sacrifice some albinos to appease the angry river gods.

Now consider the fact that the national US demographics have fallen to around 70 percent Non-Hispanic White already, then contemplate the 40-year projections.

Flint- Flint never changes. The water was about the only non- exciting thing during my time living there (GMI/ Kettering U); I remember the Flint River changing color periodically though. Never dreamed they'd actually try to drink from it. I guess this means a little spice to the diversity stew.

I bet buying from Detroit is expensive as all get out (and keep in mind that is a black city too so one can hardly vouch for that water quality). There was an article in a paper a couple years back stating 1/3rd of residents don't pay their water bill in Detroit. That is going to spike the prices for the towns, Detroit sells to.

Somebody has had to have done a study showing the critical point at which systems decay when the whites move out of a municipality. Probably dated at some point in the early 80's since the area of study would no longer result in tenure.

I gotta admit maybe i am not seeing the point being made here, but how does tainted water correlate to a demographic change? It would seem the only thing at blame here is a corrupt government failing to take care of one of the most basic duties it has in ensuring clean drinking water.

Anonymous A.B. Prosper December 20, 2015 1:12 AM  

Corey,

To sum up, different ethnic groups have different political styles and levels of corruption and incompetence.

Vastly White areas can be for example corrupt but once functional systems are put in place, they have no trouble maintaining them even with some degree of economic decline.

This is not the case with Black run areas , they simply lack the traits needed to maintain functional systems to the degree Whites do

Flint shifted from 70% White to 30% White and this was enough to take away the conditions that allowed for a clean municipal water supply.

Flint is the former home of Michael Moore, who made his name with the film Roger & Me.

"Moore chronicles how GM had previously defined his childhood in Flint, Michigan, and how the company was the primary economic and social hub of the town. He points out that Flint is the place where the Flint Sit-Down Strike occurred, resulting in the birth of the United Auto Workers. He reveals that his heroes were the Flint natives who had escaped the oppressive life in GM's factories" - Wiki

Michael CuckMooreCuck's heroes have also escaped the scourge of lead poisoning via the public water supply as a minor fringe bennie. I don't think he mentioned that in his famous movie or ever after.

"Film critic Pauline Kael felt the film exaggerated the social impact of GM's closing of the plant and depicted the actual events of Flint's troubles out of chronological order. Kael called the film 'shallow and facetious, a piece of gonzo demagoguery that made me feel cheap for laughing'" -Wiki

Alex Jones never tires of saying that those he claims pull the world's strings have a secret eugenics agenda. However, this is easily falsifiable, given that those in power such as Bill Gates actually promote policies such as Third World immigration and fighting malaria in Africa, all of which are obviously dysgenic in nature, not eugenic.

Your claim that the Rockefellers (who ain't what they used to be in terms of influence) et al. have a master plan to reduce the world's population is equally ludicrous, given that the world's population has more than doubled since it was supposedly formulated. Some conspiracy that is.

A Malthusian die-off need not be some dramatic mass die-off that takes place in a matter of weeks or months, or even over several years, like in an apocalyptic sci-fi story. A simple decrease in life expectancy from, say, seventy-five to fifty-five that continues for half a century might do the trick just as well, and recent history backs me up. Relatively few people might even realize that things were going downhill.

An interesting contrast is Grand Rapids. Forty years ago Fint and GR were battling it out for second largest city in Michigan. No contest today. There is no part of Grand Rapids that I'd be that worried about going into during the day.

Interestingly, one of the major deciding factors was charitable organizations and vibrant cultural life. GR had the Van Andel/Devoss families of Amway fame. They built new hospitals, stadiums and museums named after themselves.

And as yet have kept a sharp eye out for SJW intrusion. You can tell that by the fact that the local hipster crowd bemoans Grand Rapids as a cultural wasteland.

Assuming people care and don't just want to rant about blacks, this nightmare is only partly black in cause.

The city of Flint failed in every way possible, it lost a lot of population and the huge GM plants closed (two smaller ones left). 20k people used to work at Buick City alone, now the machines are all in China. So there is a huge series of oversized water pipes, many outdated with lead in them, and not enough return loops to keep the water flowing.

The city government was on the edge of being bankrupt, so state emergency managers were appointed. Even though the governor is GOP, Dems demanded a black democrat as manager. They got one.

The white Kildee family (Dem) owns the federal seat and has since WWII. They agreed to help the local water system, but part of that deal included shutting off Detroit supplied water so that their connected families could rape the federal funded contracts for a new connection to the lake. Because the Detroit bankruptcy case made it easy to move up the timetable, they cut the water from Detroit off early and started drawing from the emergency river intake. Turns out the emergency manager was too cheap and stupid to use the higher quality filters for the higher level of suspended solids in the river water, and to pay for and use the additives needed to keep the lead in the pipes from leaching into the higher acidity river water as the water lay in the pipes.

Yes, the black EM screwed up, but the disaster is as much the fault of GM of moving to China, and the fault of the white Kildee family and their allies trying to line their pockets with contracts.

I'm originally from that general area. It has some of the best farmland in the world, with rich black soil and a decent growing climate.

One thing you notice, driving into Flint, is that just outside the city, it's mostly rural, with big country yards and zero diversity. But then, just a few minutes South, it's totally different.

One thing about Michigan...the population trends older, mostly baby boomers and silent. The best and brightest young people tend to move away, in search of those crazy things called jobs.

In high school, I hung with the smartest kids in my class. Many of them, including me, live in the South now.

Michigan has a lot of problems, but a BIG one, IMO, is brain-drain. You could see where this would impact little things like water quality, even without the demographic shift.

Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck.”

The Rockefellers, Club of Rome, Strong, etc. pushed hard for global population control back in the 1970's when there were less than 3 billion hominids. They pushed things like Earth Day, birth control, PP, one-child, global cooling, pollution. It partly worked, but not enough.


Alex Jones never tires of saying that those he claims pull the world's strings have a secret eugenics agenda. However, this is easily falsifiable, given that those in power such as Bill Gates actually promote policies such as Third World immigration and fighting malaria in Africa, all of which are obviously dysgenic in nature, not eugenic.

I don't read Alex Jones so I wouldn't know, but just because someone (AJ) says something is true doesn't make it false, in fact that is a part of his game. Also, there are orthogonal differences between eugenics/dysgenics and population control, differences which eluded you and resulted in your following faceplant:

Your claim that the Rockefellers (who ain't what they used to be in terms of influence) et al. have a master plan to reduce the world's population is equally ludicrous, given that the world's population has more than doubled since it was supposedly formulated. Some conspiracy that is.

Soros is an identifiable funding source today for color revolutions from Kiev to Ferguson. That doesn't mean the revolutions will be seen to have been effective in the year 2055 (can you do the arithmetic?). Some conspiracy that is.

The Rockefeller Foundation WAS one of the identifiable funding sources for POPULATION CONTROL in THE 1970'S when they HAD MORE INFLUENCE. They put out all kinds of literature and propaganda films back then, which we were forced to read and watch in school. Population control, not eugenics and/or dysgenics, "PARTLY WORKED BUT NOT ENOUGH." Sheesh.

Ditto that, and thanks, Lawyer Guy. So the story is more complicated than presented in the article.

"So there is a huge series of oversized water pipes, many outdated with lead in them, and not enough return loops to keep the water flowing."

So the big intake pipes are now acting as water storage tanks, or continuous-process reactors. The water sits in them much longer, so more time to leach lead from the plumbing, so a higher concentration is achieved before the water moves on. Gotta wonder if the Kildee family's engineers would have thought of that ahead of time. Gotta wonder if the GM owners thought about the consequences to their own posterity of shipping the factories to China, too.

The entire water system is grossly oversized, the city lost a lot of population and the auto plants used an insane amount of water. Seven years ago Obama was going to pay to turn neighborhoods with just a few houses left into parkland and install bypasses and loops in the existing water system.

That got turned into a federally funded water authority and into city contracts overseen by the Kildee clique, losing a lot of the ambitious plan of turning sets of city blocks back into nature.

I know the EM in question, Darnell. He is an okay guy. We are not friends or anything, but he is fairly smart and not as dishonest as many people are in his positions. He would be great as the general manager of an auto parts supplier or a small machining company. He can't run a medium city, and he in no way can run the Detroit Public Schools (he was appointed this year as the emergency manager there). However, he is close to being able to do so, and is much better than most blacks with his experience.

I suspect this is a tautology, in that no human being without superpowers could run them well under their current constraints.

Given the general shortage of good talent for this in the US, he might well have been and be about the best that could be hired for these jobs. It's not like anyone sane expects anyone hired for them to really succeed, at best they can limit the bleeding.

1. Flint has very good reason to switch from the Detroit water supply -- Detroit was overcharging. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has done a TERRIBLE job in maintaining their pipes. It's estimated that DWS pumps 3x as much water as is actually used by its customer base, due to leaking pipes within the city of Detroit. There are some lots which have become small marshes due to leaky pipes going unrepaired for YEARS.

2: The City of Flint is absolutely incompetent. They renewed a 100 year lease on the "Buick City" property to GM, which GM shut down 15 years ago, and has NO plans to resume production on (the plant has been leveled). One of the Japanese automakers wanted to buy the property (TAX REVENUES) build a NEW plant there, (PERMANENT JOBS) but Flint turned them away --- why? Because NO U.A.W. in Japanese plants. The Japs only have about 5 labor classifications, to maximize flexibility and productivity, in contrast to the U.A.W. model of "Hey, you can't move your desk! I'm a Porter's -- that's MY job! I'm filing a grievance! No, I can't get to you for another 2 weeks!"

Now, as everyone who has had ANY chemistry knows, lead chloride is insoluble in water... And the presence of lead in the water can only mean... The geniuses in the Flint Water Department are too STUPID to chlorinate the water! Yes, I have contacted them, and they say that introducing chlorine, or even salt (which would provide adequate chlorine) is impossible. Impossible is a code word for "we don't wanna do it!"

What retards!

NO ONE AT ALL wants to know what's at the bottom of those machine pits soaking in the ground over the 100 years of operations at Buick City. Better to kick the can way down the road and let the liability only former GM shell corp hold the risk with no assets. I heard GM did bore tests, but had their lawyers on scene to make sure the results were privileged.

An Indian Tribe sued GM over their Bay City (Michigan) plant's waste, and it ended up that the canal to the river was so polluted GM paid to fill the canal with concrete and build a wall along the river. There was a chroming plant near Detroit that used a recreational lake as a waste dump, GM ended up paying to drain it and dredge it about 15 years ago because too many kids got cancer.

The GM bankruptcy did more than fleece the bondholders, it also cleaned off 100 years of environmental liability for the "New GM", which is China's aspirational car brand.

Jone is wrong. The Judeo-Masonic Globalist Bankster Elite does not have a eugenics agenda. They do have a long term depopulation agenda which is not the same thing. Their more immediate goal, though, is the destruction of Western, i.e. White, Civilization, for which they require the use of the 3rd World Hordes as weapons of mass social deconstruction. Once the West and Western Man is out of the way and their authoritarian One World Government is in place then they can openly implement large scale depopulation programs. Until then they'll resort to slow, silent killers and sterilizers like GMOs, BPAs, tainted vaccines and like.

There's a theory, heard it before. Not saying you're right but if it were not for all the inventions and advancements that Western Man created and freely gave to the world, there would not be 7+ billion various hominids alive today. That's the source. If you want to reduce the world population, then take all that "cultural appropriation" away. So in that sense the projecting-racist SJW is so far left xhe's jackboot right. I'm thinking of ingrates like the Jemisin (sp?) types, and for that matter all who do not acknowledge this basic fact of life. The nihilism of the SJW is a death wish for the world.

Unfortunately for The Theory, the power elite isn't monolithic. We are currently seeing various signs of internal strife at the 'highest' levels. Who gets to do what? Who owns what? Who screws up whose operation? It's long-knife, cutthroat anarchy at the top, always has been. Simpler, low-level example- if you're a DE A agent you don't talk about your current sting with your coworkers. One of them might snitch. This is one reason why their grand plans go awry. They can all pull together for awhile on something like the Federal Reserve, but not on who gets Uzbekistan.

Population control, not eugenics and/or dysgenics, "PARTLY WORKED BUT NOT ENOUGH." Sheesh.

Western birth rates began declining in the late 1950s, with the drop-off becoming sharper in the early 1960s, so it appears that the Rockefellers were late to the party.

Besides, as Steve Sailer has noted, once the initial concern over the Population Explosion faded in the 1970s, opinion-makers quit talking about the need to reduce birth rates in the Third World, although that is where women are having the most babies by far. That is inconsistent with your theory.

And to say that population control is neither eugenic nor dysgenic is nonsense. Such policies always affect some groups more than others, which make them de facto eugenic or dysgenic.

@83

Once the West and Western Man is out of the way and their authoritarian One World Government is in place then they can openly implement large scale depopulation programs.

Once Whites are out of the way, there goes the infrastructure that makes large Third World populations possible, like water supplies that don't have lead in them, not to mention modern medicine and industrial-scale agriculture. No secret program will be necessary to reduce number of "useless eaters" under such circumstances.

As conspiracy theories go, this one is really dumb.
