Emails Show Flint Govt Bought Clean Water for Themselves While Residents Drank Poison for a Year

flint-water-2By Matt Agorist

As the water crisis in Flint shows no signs of coming to an end anytime soon, one thing is clear — not one government official has yet to be held accountable for causing it.

As details emerge about how officials have known about the tainted water and simply allowed the public to consume it without taking action, newly released documents reveal that the state wasn’t entirely without action — for themselves.

A series of emails released Thursday, obtained through a FOIA request shows that not only did officials know the water was tainted, but they took action and began trucking in water to state buildings so they would no longer have to drink it.


The emails show that after concerns were raised about the levels of TTHM in Flint water, the Snyder administration chose not to wait for the results to come back in March of 2015, and instead took action in January.

“TTHM” is “total trihalomethanes,” a group of chemical compounds that form during drinking water treatment. The compounds are produced when organic matter in natural water reacts chemically with chlorine disinfectants.

In an email from the District Engineer of the Office of Drinking Water and Municipal Assistance, Michael Prysby sent out a notice to several members of Michigan’s Department of Environmental Quality.

“Appears certain state departments are concerned with Flint’s WQ [Water Quality]. I will return the call….” read the email. 

Instead of immediately notifying the citizens of the tainted water, the Snyder administration used taxpayer dollars to protect government officials only.

In a memo dated two days prior to the email mentioned above, which highlights the fact that officials knew about the water crisis well before now, the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) informed Flint officials that they would be protected from the dangers of the city water.

According to the memo, titled “Facility Notification: Flint Water Advisory,”

The City of Flint recently sent out the attached notice regarding violations to the drinking water standards. While the City of Flint states that corrective actions are not necessary, DTMB is in the process of providing a water cooler on each occupied floor, positioned near the water fountain, so you can choose which water to drink. The coolers will arrive today and will be provided as long as the public water does not meet treatment requirements.

Had the residents of Flint been afforded the same courtesy, of which their tax dollars supplied, the poisoning of countless children and adults alike could have been prevented. As the government officials were allowed to ‘choose’ which water source they wanted to drink, the poor residents were being systematically and knowingly poisoned.

“It appears the state wasn’t as slow as we first thought in responding the Flint Water Crisis. Sadly, the only response was to protect the Snyder administration from future liability and not to protect the children of Flint from lead poisoning,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan in a press release on Thursday. “While residents were being told to relax and not worry about the water, the Snyder administration was taking steps to limit exposure in its own building.”

    History shows us time and time again that the first rule of any government is to look out for itself.

    • Yet all governments will do this, because power corrupts!

    • Brett

      Thats true, friend. And, law enforcement officers were first bought in to protect the elite and gov eons ago. In the same way military was bought about not to protect the people or a nation, but to expand empires…fact.

  • Mick McNulty

    Protecting yourselves while leaving others to drink poisons is heads-on-pikes behavior. It’s an atrocity.

  • Well of course they did, this is the USA, capitalism, free market, conservative ideology, which all support the golden rule: “I got mine, not go f*ck yourself”

    • Undecider

      Capitalism is just a vehicle. What does conservatism have to do with it? How about Liberalism?

    When I and several scientists went up against our town council with compelling evidence to stop the neurotoxic fluoride in our water, they still voted to keep it. Immediately after the meeting they all descended on the water dept expert to find out how they could filter it out of their water. [www.fluoridealert.org]
    During the 2009 H1N1 false pandemic [ the head of CDC changed the criteria and then 6 months later went to work for Merck] the German govt was mandating everyone get the new experimental shot that had autoimmune causing SQUALENE in it. When the population found out that the Govt officials were not taking the squalene shots no one showed up to the clinics.Side effects tallied years later were Guillian-Barre paralysis, narcolepsy, encephalitis and 700% increase in miscarriages.
    WARNING the newly approved FLUAD shot targeted for seniors is the first time squalene has been allowed in USA. Used in lab animals to induce autoimmune disease it will be devastating for the elderly. Of course if we die quicker it will save on SS & medicare payouts….

    • AttackonElderly

      Not only does the “senior” flu shot contain squalene, but it is 4 times the dose (thus 4x the mercury content) of vaccines given to those under 60 as well. And they are also using Cipro, a very dangerous fluoroquinolone antibiotic (yes, with fluoride) on elderly even though it is known that elderly are more susceptible to severe and fatal side effects from this drug (which came on the market in 2001 and was initially an antibiotic of “last resort,” but is now being pushed for everything from ear infections to uti’s. Take a note, most doctors never even READ the patient inserts, ignore black box warnings (even well-intentioned doctors). Death by medicine … and the medical community has really expanded their efforts of late. Educate yourselves before it is too late.

      • Brett

        Good advice, friend. How many will listen before its too late though? We need to start punching people in the face to wake them up! They are like cattle being led to the slaughter house. unbelievable…

      • CAWS

        Not sure where you are getting your info but the newly approved FLUAD shot does not have mercury in it and the “senior shots” that still had Hg were doubled during the last two years not quadrupled. If you read the product package insert readily available online; [even though your local pharmacy will pretend they can’t find one] it mentions nothing about Cipro either.
        Granted; although Cipro, Levaquin,Avelox ,Factive and other FQs have been crippling people [including children now] for decades; it is not present in any new vaccines that I am aware of. Go to http://www.cdc.gov ,click on Vaccine Media & Excipients 2016. There are however many “TOPICAL USE ONLY ANTIBIOTICS” in several shots including Polymixin B, Bactracin, Neomycin, Streptomycin etc.
        The new FLUAD contains in addition to 3 types of flu virus & squalene; polysorbate 80,sorbitan trioleate,sodium citrate dihydrate, citric acid monohydrate, NEOMYCIN, KANAMYCIN, ,BARIUM, egg proteins , formaldehyde & CTAB.
        These are all alarming ingredients. Kandamycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic which inhibits protein synthesis. It’s side effects include hearing loss, kidney damage/disease,toxic effect on brain or spinal cord function,giant hives,inflammation of skin, itching, rash, redness of skin; also possible clostridium difficile & nerve function blockage that affects muscle action!
        Sodium citrate dihydrate [and most citric acids] are mostly made from GMO corn not orange juice as they would have us think. Even though Novartis claims no preservatives this product is a buffering agent used as a food preservative.
        Polysorbate 80 & sorbital trioleate are sufacants [detergents] that help the vaccine to penentrate & stay in suspension.i BARIUM is an alkaline METAL & when made soluble [ by surfacants] becomes poisonous & is often used as rat poison. INJECTED EGG proteins can cause allergies to eggs even if you don’t already have them. FORMALDEHYDE [embalming fluid] has been classified by the CDC as a CARCINOGEN.
        All this synergistic toxic soup is wrapped up in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide [CTAB]. This is a halogenated antiseptic [bromine is a cumulative poison that blocks absorption of iodine needed for thyroid ,breast & prostate health] that kills bacteria & FUNGUS . It is used in cosmetics to make NANOPARTICLES because it extracts DNA by braking down cell membranes.
        Remember the vaccine companies have immunity from prosecution thanks to Congress & can change the formulas anytime they want because the FDA & CDC are all in bed with them. Now they want to make this mandatory for everyone before we find out the truth . WAKE UP . Spread the word & support NVIC.org & other organizations fighting this!

          I had replied to you earlier, but my comment has disappeared. Thanks for the info. I sub’d to the org you mentioned.

      • Cat411

        OMG. Now I know why my doctor ASKS me if I will use Cipro for various infections, of which I have many at present. I have Crohn’s Disease, an auto-immune disease, and I’m a magnet for any and every bug out there. I will never use Cipro again!

        • CAWS

          Read the study on low dose naltrexone healing Crohn’s ulcers. Also check out Mega Spore Biotics and you tube videos ” How to do your own fecal transplant” Prednisone may reduce inflammation but destrotys your immune system.

          • Cat411

            Prednisone… I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken that. I will check out the Mega Spore Biotics. But the self-transplant fecal thing.. I don’t know about that! I will check out the videos though. Thanks for the info!

  • FiverPrometheus

    It would be great if these monsters were forced to drink the contaminated water for the rest of their miserable lives.

  • niles

    And don’t forget the Colorado river system that is ruined for the rest of our lives!!! That was caused by a Gov entity.

  • toodorky

    My Gawd….I do believe they (?) are trying to kill us….Of course, there is no such thing as Fukushima radiation, Chem Trails, Gulf coast corexit, GMOs, HAARP, Agenda 21, Smart Meters, Ebola scare and now GMO induced mosquitoes creating ZIKA ….naw, it must be all our imagination.

    • Brett

      Yep. I cant believe how asleep people are to whats happening around the world. EVERYONE knows how gov tells lies and create problems and work for the elite, yet, they STILL follow the command! Unbelievable, really…

  • Brett

    Control water AND food and you control the world? This is global…

  • Jason P

    Dr. Hanna-Attisha and others who have studied lead poisoning have a sharply different view of lead exposure, for which there is no cure. “If you were going to put something in a population to keep them down for generations to come, it would be lead,” Dr. Hanna-Attisha said.

    What about the entire Boomer generation? The people who now write policy and make our laws were born into a toxic environment of Leaded gasoline and paint. Their blood lead levels were from 12-30. Anything over a 5 nowadays gets a visit from the health department. It was banned in the 70’s but the mental damage was done. What the boomer generation considers normal aging, is in fact not, but caused by lead. Perhaps its time for them to go before they damage the country further.

      Add to that over 100 years of amalgam fillings with brain destroying mercury, vaccines, and 70 years of fluoride which we now have 50 studies showing lowering of IQ even at lower levels. CDC admitted two years ago that 40% of city water teens have fluorosis & oops they have been overdosing us. Of course none of their calculations considered the levels of F, a cumulative poison, in food, air & pharmaceuticals. Hitler used it in the concentration camps to quiet the prisoners & destroy the thyroid rendering them infertile.

  • Freedom

    From the Govenor on down these people need to go to jail.

  • BanishedJester

    One simple solution: HHO. These folks, were they free, well-informed, and empowered, can all be building small and simple HHO generators. Separating water molecules creates a combustible gas that, when burned, becomes water again. Pure H20. So at the same time they are both producing fuel and filtering their water in the same process providing pure, unfluoridated water.

  • stupid is as stupid does

    And the lamp posts are still empty with no decorations ????????? They poisoned you and your children..and had no problem doing it……and you LIKE IT I guess…..

  • CAWS

    You are so right. Our water is so polluted from industry , farming & fracking now that most water systems are using chloramines & 70% have fluoride for that combined effect you speak of. Our infrastructure is so old that most cities have lead & other leaching metals in the pipes. Unless it turns color, smells or tastes bad you will never suspect you are being poisoned. F is odorless ,colorless & tasteless & very acidic.
