As the Delta variant upended hope of returning to normal this summer, Mother Jones reporter Edwin Rios published a deeply reported story on Flint, Michigan, recounting how residents of this predominantly Black city have battled COVID-19 in spite of government distrust, neglect, and environmental catastrophe. But the pandemic isn't Flint's first crisis: In 2014, public officials implemented cost-cutting measures that led to dangerous concentrations of lead in the city's water supply. Up to 12,000 children were exposed to contaminated water. Then-President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency. And in 2021, nine people—including ex-Gov. Rick Snyder—were indicted on criminal charges in the matter. A few years later, when COVID-19 barreled across the globe and vaccinations became a political flashpoint, Flint already had an infrastructure of outreach and support in place. Their water crisis wound up being a crash course in how residents learned to band together in a catastrophe—and shows how one community used a dose of social medicine to close the gap between Black and white suffering during a pandemic.

This week on the podcast, we start diving into fresh water access. In the US, having access to fresh water is treated like a privilege, especially for poor communities. The clearest example of that is the Flint Water Crisis. aub did a deep dive into the timeline of what happened in Flint - its not pretty. The problem in Genessee County, Michigan hit national and international news in 2016. But by then it had already been almost two years since the water crisis started. aub shares the timeline of events because every step of the way show how severely mishandled this situation was from the start. It shows the blatant disregard for the Flint community. The Flint water crisis is seen as a political scandal now - but that feels like it doesn't do the situation justice. 100,000 PEOPLE DIDN'T HAVE CLEAN DRINKING WATER FOR FOUR YEARS. And the story is still unfolding in the aftermath. Corruption, mismanagement, and poisoning of an entire community of people, done for a pennies on the dollar savings venture. The government ignored and gaslit the citizens of Flint, they sidestepped culpability, and treated their city like it was expendable. Would this happen in a white community? In a rich neighborhood? In a low-crime city? No. Absolutely not. References: Flint Stats and US stats from the US Census Bureau.

The water supply has been poisoned––that's the kind of thing we depend on the fourth estate to report about. But where have they been? The national press was universally late in reporting on the Flint Water crisis, and quickly dropped the corruption, greed, and mismanagement that poisoned Flint's water and people. But the story continues, though you'd never know it from mainstream media. So is the crisis over? Jordan Chariton and Jenn Dize of Status Coup say no. In their recent article, they uncover mounds of corruption, finding the government guilty of a huge coverup with cleared text messages, piles of thrown away phones, and then-Governor Rick Snyder telling his staff: “Don't put anything in writing because emails are cannons for our enemies.” They lay out a real case against Snyder for misconduct, willful neglect of duty, and even involuntary manslaughter. But today, he's facing penalties equivalent to a parking ticket and a potential of up to one year in prison. And no one else is talking about it. In this interview, we examine the evil side of politics and the news that sadly can only be found in the reporting of independent media. Plus, Biden's no longer is going door-to-door to give you a vaccine, a tribunal for human rights abuses in Cuba, and two important messages: don't make guns that look like toys and if you're going to commit bestiality, please make sure the animal is bigger than you.

In 1960, the population of Flint, Michigan was nearly 200,000 people. It was a center of American manufacturing and economic prosperity. But in the decades that followed, manufacturers abandoned their Flint operations. Many White families left for the suburbs and the now majority Black city entered a state of economic decline. In 2011 then-Governor Rick Snyder appointed an emergency manager. This government official had the authority to override decisions made by Flint’s city council and mayor in the interest of reducing the city’s debt. In 2014, in an effort to cut costs, the city switched its longstanding water supply from the Detroit Water Department to the nearby untreated Flint river. This decision led to a public health crisis that will affect the city for generations.In this episode of Population Healthy Season 3: Race, Inequity, and Closing the Health Gap, we explore how the city of Flint faces a myriad of interwoven and complex public health challenges and how incorporating the voices of the city’s residents into research and decision making through the practice of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) can lead to more positive and meaningful health outcomes for the community.

After Flint’s Crisis, An Algorithm Helps Citizens Find Lead Pipes It’s been nearly seven years since the beginning of Flint, Michigan’s water crisis, when high levels of lead from corroded lead pipes led to water shortages and health issues for city residents. Since then, many other cities around the country have had their own problems with lead. Researchers estimate that millions of Americans are living with pipes that need to be replaced. As Wired reported earlier this month, Toledo, Ohio is one of the latest cities trying to get ahead of its legacy of lead plumbing, with the help of an algorithm created by University of Michigan researchers. The model was originally created to help the city of Flint more quickly—and less expensively—target which homes were most likely to need their pipes replaced. The same researchers are now working as a private company, called BlueConduit, to help other cities do the same work. And in Toledo, they’re working in close partnership with the city and community organizations. Ira talks with University of Michigan professor and BlueConduit co-founder Eric Schwartz, and Alexis Smith of the nonprofit Freshwater Future, about the work ahead for Toledo, and why deploying an algorithm effectively depends on community trust and input. Curious if your own water pipes contain lead? EPA-funded project Crowd The Tap has a free tutorial for finding your water service line—and determining the materials of your pipes. The organization’s mission is to ensure safe drinking water in the United States. By sharing what you observe, you can help identify areas for tap water testing and infrastructure replacement. Learn about your pipes, and how you can help at CrowdTheTap.org. Former Michigan Governor, Other Officials Charged for Flint Water Crisis In Flint, criminal and civil cases stemming from the city’s lead tainted drinking water crisis are converging this week. New criminal charges may be coming while many in Flint still question whether they will ever get justice. Nearly seven years ago, government leaders here pushed the button that switched the city of Flint’s drinking water source from Detroit’s water system to the Flint River. The intent was to save money. The result was a complete disaster. Improperly treated river water damaged pipes, which then released lead and other contaminates into the city’s drinking water. Eighteen months later the water was switched back, but the damage was done. Blood lead levels soared in young children. People were forced to use bottled water for drinking and washing clothes. The city was forced to rip out thousands of old pipes. While testifying about the Flint water crisis before Congress in 2016, former Governor Rick Snyder acknowledged the mistakes. “Local, state and federal officials, we all failed the families of Flint,” Snyder told a congressional committee. Snyder was not among the 15 state and local government officials who faced criminal charges for their handling of the crisis. Half of them pled guilty to lesser charges in exchange for no jail time. And in 2019, Michigan’s new Attorney General dropped charges against the remaining defendants citing problems with the original investigation. The investigation seemed over. Until Tuesday, when the Associated Press reported that several former government officials, including former Governor Snyder, would be facing new charges. If that happens, legal experts say it would be a difficult case for prosecutors. Read more at sciencefriday.com. How Soil Could Save The Planet There’s a scene in the 2014 film Interstellar that imagines the hypothetical impact of climate change on Earth’s food system. The film takes place in a dystopian future where a global crop blight is slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Corn is the last viable crop and dust storms threaten humanity’s survival. But it’s not just science fiction. Scientists are warning that if we don’t adopt more sustainable farming practices we’ll deplete the soil of vital nutrients and actually accelerate climate change. The Earth’s soils contain about 2,500 gigatons of carbon—that’s more than three times the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and four times the amount stored in all living plants and animals. And the soil—in union with the plants that grow on and in it—may have an unlimited capacity to suck CO2 out of the air and store it underground. Tom Newmark, founder of The Carbon Underground, joins Ira to discuss the potential of carbon sequestration through a farming technique called “regenerative agriculture.” And Diana Wall, professor of biology at Colorado State University, discusses the role microbes play in the carbon cycle. President Biden Makes Immediate Changes To U.S. Science Policy This week’s peaceful transition of power from one administration to another was a win for democracy, but it was also a win for science. Among his first acts in the Oval Office, President Biden signed executive orders allowing the U.S. to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement and the World Health Organization, and put the brakes on plans for the Keystone XL pipeline and drilling in the arctic national wildlife refuge. And there will be more policy changes to come, as the president considers signing a new set of orders designed to ramp up U.S. COVID vaccination efforts in the coming days and weeks. Umair Irfan, staff reporter for Vox, discusses the major science policy news of the week. Plus, an update on new variants of SARS-CoV-2 and what scientists have discovered about coronavirus immunity.

Welcome to Majority.FM's AM QUICKIE! Brought to you by justcoffee.coop TODAY'S HEADLINES: Joe Biden to the rescue? The President-elect last night previewed his first major policy package, targeting the pandemic and the economic crisis that has come with it. Meanwhile, dozens of white supremacist on a federal terrorism watch list were present for the storming of the Capitol last week. Investigators are looking into possible foreign financing behind the insurrection. And lastly, Donald Trump is having a hard time finding lawyers to defend him in his second impeachment trial. I guess Rudy can fail, after all. THESE ARE THE STORIES YOU NEED TO KNOW: They’re calling it the American Rescue Plan. President-elect Joe Biden, who will take over the pandemic response in five days, gave a speech last night on his plans to combat the coronavirus and address its economic consequences, the Washington Post reports. His remarks came as more than four thousand Covid-19 deaths were reported in the United States for the second day in a row. The plan is divided into three major areas, according to the Post: $400 billion for provisions to fight the coronavirus, while reopening schools; more than $1 trillion in direct relief to families, including through stimulus payments and increased unemployment benefits; and $440 billion for aid to communities and businesses. The legislation includes a number of priorities sought by top congressional Democrats, from increasing the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour to adding billions in funding for childcare. Biden said QUOTE We need more action, more bipartisanship, and we need to move fast ENDQUOTE. The measures are narrowly tailored in an effort to garner GOP support, Biden’s team told the Post. The overall price tag is below $2 trillion. It will be followed by a broader recovery plan with more expansive Democratic priorities. But after campaigning as a bipartisan dealmaker, Biden wants to give Republicans the opportunity to get behind his first legislative effort as president. You might say he’s offering them an off-ramp from the road to insurrection. That part sounds like a longshot, frankly, but this is Joe Biden we’re talking about. Foreign Insurrection Financing Investigated Don’t call them patriots. The Washington Post reports that dozens of people on a terrorist watch list were in Washington for pro-Trump events on January 6th, when a violent mob stormed the US Capitol. The majority of the watchlisted individuals in Washington that day are suspected white supremacists. Their past conduct so alarmed investigators that their names had been previously entered into the national Terrorist Screening Database, a massive set of names flagged as potential security risks, the Post’s sources said. The watch list is larger and separate from the no-fly list the government maintains, and those listed are not automatically barred from any public or commercial spaces. While the FBI is hunting hundreds of rioting suspects who have dispersed back to their hometowns, the Post reports, federal agents are increasingly focused on the Proud Boys. Privately, some federal law enforcement officials have described the group as roughly equivalent to a nascent street gang. But other officials have expressed concern that the group may be growing rapidly into something more dangerous and directed. Separately, Yahoo News reports that law enforcement is investigating whether a series of large Bitcoin donations were linked to the assault on the Capitol. On December 8th, someone made a simultaneous transfer of Bitcoins worth more than $500,000 to twenty-two different virtual wallets, most of them belonging to prominent right-wing organizations and personalities. Right-wing figures and websites, including VDARE, the Daily Stormer and Nick Fuentes, received generous donations from a bitcoin account linked to a French cryptocurrency exchange. The suspicious December transaction, along with other intelligence, has prompted law enforcement and intelligence agencies to investigate the sources of funding for individuals who participated in the Capitol insurrection. The government is hoping to prevent future attacks but also to uncover potential foreign involvement in or support of right-wing activities, Yahoo’s source said. The plot thickens! Trump Lacks Impeachment Defense Donald Trump, on the eve of facing a second impeachment trial, is having trouble finding a legal team to defend him, Bloomberg News reports. Allies of the outgoing president have been looking for representation but so far are coming up short. Lawyers who defended him in the previous impeachment trial, including Jay Sekulow, have said no this time. Other lawyers who have defended Trump, including Pam Bondi, aren’t interested. Some of the lawyers have privately said what Trump did was indefensible. Alan Dershowitz also defended Trump the first time around. He isn’t planning to represent the president now, Bloomberg reports. Rudy Giuliani is also unlikely to be on the president’s defense team, an administration official said. His conduct at the rally preceding the Capitol raid could be examined during an impeachment trial. Separately, ABC News reports that the Trump family is pulling up stakes. Donald and Melania Trump have made no secret of their impending move to Florida after January 20, but they won't be alone. The president's eldest son, Donald Trump Junior, and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle have been house-hunting in the Palm Beach area. Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, also plan to relocate to the Sunshine State in the coming weeks, having recently purchased a plot of land in the Miami area. In related real estate news, the Washington Post reports that the Secret Service detail assigned to Jared and Ivanka spent months searching for a restroom to use on the job. After resorting to a porta-potty, the agents finally found a toilet to call their own. But it came at a cost to US taxpayers. Since September 2017, the federal government has been spending $3,000 a month – more than $100,000 to date – to rent a basement studio, with a bathroom, from a neighbor of the Kushners. All this because agents were banned from using any the six point five bathrooms in Javanka’s mansion. Charming. AND NOW FOR SOME QUICKER QUICKIES: The New York State attorney general sued the New York City Police Department yesterday over widespread abuses in how officers handled Black Lives Matter protests last summer, the New York Times reports. The AG, Letitia James, wants a federal monitor to oversee the department’s policing tactics at future protests. She also wants a court to declare that the practices the department used during the protests were unlawful. Get ’em Letitia! Rick Snyder, the former governor of Michigan, was arraigned on misdemeanor charges yesterday in connection with his role in the Flint water crisis. The Times reports thatnhe was charged with two counts of willful neglect of duty. If he is convicted, he faces imprisonment of up to one year or a maximum fine of $1,000. It ain’t much but it’s something. Joe Biden plans to name Jaime Harrison as his pick to lead the Democratic National Committee, the Washington Post reports. A former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, Harrison last year raised $130 million in his losing race against Senator Lindsey Graham. Harrison is not expected to face a challenger, and his candidacy was promoted by Congressman James Clyburn, a close Biden ally. Puerto Rican police are investigating the death of a transgender man found with multiple gunshot wounds, NBC News reports. Samuel Edmund Damián Valentín, shot January 9, is the seventh known transgender person to die by violence in Puerto Rico since last February. Advocates say the police aren’t doing enough. Hopefully more awareness on the case will cause them to pick up the pace.

Is America Becoming a Techno-Corporate State, Verging on Martial Law?

John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute and author of "Battlefield America: The War on the American People," joins us to discuss the current perilous situation in the US. In his latest article, Whitehead argues that America has been reduced to "a violent mob. A nation on the brink of martial law. A populace under house arrest. A techno-corporate state wielding its power to immobilize huge swaths of the country. And a Constitution in tatters."Marjorie Cohn, professor of law at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California, and a former president of the National Lawyers Guild, joins us to discuss the state of the impeachment moves in Congress. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is caught between a cadre of angry donors and a base that still supports US President Donald Trump. McConnell released a public statement Wednesday in which he said, “While the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote, and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.”Jim Kavanagh, writer at The Polemicist and CounterPunch, joins us to discuss the actions of big tech companies after last week's Capitol protests. The last week has been a demonstration of the incredible power of such firms. While these companies argue that they are protecting American democracy, we recall that in 2009 Twitter postponed scheduled platform maintenance so that its platform would be available to protesters in Iran that were using it to coordinate actions to destabilize the government.Scott Ritter, former UN weapons inspector in Iraq, returns to discuss a report that Iran is producing equipment at a facility in Isfahan aimed at creating uranium metal. This is now being presented as a proliferation threat, with the Wall Street Journal arguing that “uranium metal can be used to construct the core of a nuclear weapon.” However, the uranium metal that the facility would produce would only be 20% enriched. In order to create a weapon, Iran would have to further enrich that uranium to 90% purity.Julie Hurwitz, civil rights attorney and partner at the law firm Goodman, Hurwitz and James, joins us to discuss the latest on the Flint water crisis. Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of willful neglect of duty for his role in the crisis that polluted Flint's water with lead. These charges come "in the wake of a report indicating Snyder was aware of a Legionnaires' disease outbreak linked to the emergency months before he acknowledged it in public," Common Dreams reported Thursday.Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, Lebanon, joins us to talk about Israel's opposition to a reinstatement of the Iran nuclear deal. Israeli Likud Minister Tzachi Hanegbi stated on Wednesday that he does not expect Trump to impose military action on Iran. He also said that Israel may initiate military strikes against the Islamic Republic if US President-elect Joe Biden elects to return to the nuclear deal. Also, Israel has increased military strikes against Syria, killing scores of Syrian personnel over the last few days.Chris Sorensen joins us to discuss his latest book, "Understanding the War Industry." We also discuss how Wall Street profits from war, and how censorship from big tech corporations in the aftermath of the Capitol riot is the height of hypocrisy because those corporations profit by selling to the most violent institution, the US military.Dan Lazare, investigative journalist and author of "The Velvet Coup," joins us to discuss the nomination of Samantha Power to head the US Agency for International Development (USAID). Biden's selection of a number of notorious war hawks for his administration, including Power, Antony Blinken and Avril Haines, has many international security analysts concerned that a major military conflict may be in the offing. Additionally, Kurt Campbell, a key architect of former US President Barack Obama's Asia “pivot,” will become the coordinator for Indo-Pacific affairs on the National Security Council as a deputy to Jake Sullivan, Biden's pick for national security adviser.

Dr. Clarence Lusane, author, activist and political science professor at Howard University, returns to talk about the recent reports about last week's protest in Washington, DC. An internal government document reveals that the FBI had foreknowledge of the potential for violence at the Capitol Hill protests, the Washington Post reported Tuesday. According to the outlet, the FBI's office in Norfolk, Virginia, reported that it was aware of calls for violence in response to "unlawful lockdowns," and the office sent the information to FBI officials in the capital within 45 minutes of receiving it on January 5.Dr. Yolandra Hancock, board-certified pediatrician and obesity medicine specialist joins us to talk about the latest news regarding the coronavirus pandemic. Another record was set Tuesday as over 4,400 people died of COVID-19 in the US, according to a New York Times Tally. The US currently has the highest death toll in the world and is rapidly approaching 400,000 fatalities. We discuss the action that needs to be taken as a new Congress and presidential administration come to power. Julie Hurwitz, civil rights attorney and partner at the law firm Goodman, Hurwitz and James, joins us to discuss the latest in the Flint, Michigan, water crisis. Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and a number of former state officials that were involved in the Flint water crisis will reportedly be indicted. The 2014 crisis led to at least 12 deaths and dozens of illnesses in the predominantly Black city where lead levels in water remain abnormally high to this day.KJ Noh, peace activist, writer and teacher, joins us to discuss China's interests in Afghanistan. China has had issues with Islamic terrorism and therefore has some concerns because of its proximity to Afghanistan. China has publicly endorsed the US removal of troops from Afghanistan but is also keeping a close eye on the dynamics created by the withdrawal. The Asian nation has a significant Muslim population and has experienced some level of participation in terrorism and extremism among that group. Nino Pagliccia, who has two master's degrees from Stanford University and is a retired researcher on Canada-Cuba collaborative projects at the University of British Columbia, returns to the show to discuss Latin America's response to last week's Capitol Hill protest. Additionally, Pagliccia discusses his extensive research and reporting on Canada's involvement in US regime-change maneuvers in Central and South America. William J. Astore, retired US Air Force lieutenant colonel who has taught at the Air Force Academy and the Naval Postgraduate School, and now teaches history at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, joins us to discuss his latest article. Astore argues that we are all prisoners of war because militarism has become deeply embedded in American life. He comes on to discuss what it will take to free America from a cultural paradigm of endless war.Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst and co-founder of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, joins us to discuss US President-elect Joe Biden's selection for CIA chief. McGovern asks whether diplomat William Burns will be able to change the culture at Langley and not be subsumed by it. Adam Eidinger, Washington, DC, cannabis activist, joins us to discuss cannabis legalization. Mexico is in the process of creating the largest legal cannabis market in the world. Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is arguing that cannabis legalization will raise significant funds to help address the budget shortfall caused by the pandemic.
