Ponchartrain Park New Orleans & the American Home Dream Which the Biden Administration Aims to Undermine; Comment Deadline July 12th

Mining Awareness +

Nothing like this had been done in the country. White people didn’t think black people could afford it. [But] They set records on paying mortgages. — Rosa Kellerhttps://cat.xula.edu/unmasked/articles/419/

The aim used to be for all Americans to live well. This meant access to single family homes. Ponchartrain Park was a first step in the right direction.

Developed in the 1950s, “Pontchartrain Park attracted middle- and upper-class African-American residents and became a symbol that the American Dream could be a reality for all Americans….”https://prcno.org/resources/pontchartrain-park/

Instead of aspiring for a good life for all Americans, the Biden Administration aims to undermine single family zoning so that no one can have the opportunity to live well.

Mississippi Man Pleads Guilty to Illegal Moonshine Charges; Interstate Travel (30 min away) to Buy Sugar in “Aid of a Racketeering Enterprise”

Mining Awareness – 

🤣 He was trafficking in a white powder called sugar, rather than cocaine: “The investigation revealed that, over time, Necaise traveled out of state and obtained at least 569,775 pounds of sugar, a primary ingredient for moonshine.” 🤣 Translation: He drove around half an hour from Kiln, Mississippi to Slidell, Louisiana, and bought sugar! 🤣 Did he buy coffee and crab boil too?

Willie Necaise, Jr., 77, of Hancock County, pled guilty Friday before U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden to Unlawful Production of Distilled Spirits and Interstate Travel in Aid of a Racketeering Enterprise.”  (more)

Disaster in Michigan: Record Rain; Boyce Hydro’s Failure to Address Dam Safety & Dow Chemical

This will come downstream – FC

Mining Awareness +

The Commission’s primary concern has been the licensee’s longstanding failure to address the project’s inadequate spillway capacity, which currently is designed to pass only approximately 50 percent of the PMF. Failure of the Edenville dam could result in the loss of human life and the destruction of property and infrastructure.“https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/02/26/2018-03821/boyce-hydro-power-llc-order-proposing-revocation-of-license

A stalled low pressure system and frontal boundary across the southern Great Lakes region brought record rainfall to southeast Michigan beginning the morning of May 17, 2020 and continuing into the afternoon hours of May 19, 2020. As a result, several rivers across the region flooded including significant flooding occurring along the Saginaw River and historic flooding along the Tittabawassee River in Midland county. The heavy rain in the Tri-Cities region resulted in the catastrophic failures of the Edenville and Sanford dams northwest of the city of Midland, resulting in the issuance of rare Flash Flood Emergencies…

The maniac doctor who helped write and pass three laws in Louisiana that offer immunity to health care professionals who kill their patients during a pandemic or other emergency

Mining Awareness The Deadly Choices at Memorial

” . . . in July 2006, nearly a year after Katrina, Louisiana Department of Justice agents arrested the doctor and the nurses in connection with the deaths of four patients. The physician, Anna Pou, defended herself on national television, saying her role was to ‘‘help’’ patients ‘‘through their pain,’’ a position she maintains today. After a New Orleans grand jury declined to indict her on second-degree murder charges, the case faded from view.

In the four years since Katrina, Pou has helped write and pass three laws in Louisiana that offer immunity to health care professionals from most civil lawsuits — though not in cases of willful misconduct — for their work in future disasters, from hurricanes to terrorist attacks to pandemic influenza.”

Bernie Sanders Strongly Supported Burying Vermont Nuclear Waste in Texas Despite Opposition; Poor Communities Beware (Includes Transcript)

Mining Awareness +

Please read this post carefully. If you find this behavior reprehensible, we urge Bernie supporters to find another candidate before it is too late, and for everyone to spread the word.

Bernie Sanders knows that nuclear is dangerous, yet he had no qualms about sending Vermont’s nuclear waste cross country to be buried in Texas. Rather he said: “I rise in strong support of H.R. 629. Mr. Chairman, the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act and its 1985 amendments make commercial low-level radioactive waste disposal a State and not a Federal responsibility“. Sanders then goes on to make false claims that Texas is geologically appropriate for burial, and that Vermont is not. When it helped him get shot of Vermont nuclear waste to Texas, he said it can’t be left on site: “Leaving the radioactive waste at the site where it was produced, despite the fact that that…
