Gretchen Whitmer’s Regime Sued to Keep Water Levels High in Months Leading Up to Michigan Dam Break

Whitmer’s regime contributed mightily this crisis.

Published

A lawsuit filed by the administration of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer stopped water levels from being drained not too long before this week’s catastrophic flooding that has much of the city of Midland underwater.

Owners of the dam are blowing the whistle on the state’s Democrat leaders, noting that they were forced due to a lawsuit by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel to maintain high water levels in Wixom Lake, which flooded the Midland area after a dam collapse. Nessel reportedly was worried about the affect draining the lake would have on the mussel population.

Boyce Hydro Power LLC released a statement explaining the situation after the administration attempted to throw them under the bus for the catastrophe that has displaced about 10,000 people in the mid-Michigan region.

Boyce and the state were involved in dual lawsuits due to the water levels of Wixom Lake in April. The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) wanted to keep water levels high to protect fresh water mussels that are considered an endangered species.

Boyce explicitly requested permission from the EGLE to lower the water levels “due to concern for the safety of its operators and the downstream community.” EGLE along with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources denied the request. Boyce lowered the water levels anyway in November “believing its safety concerns were paramount.” They filed a lawsuit against the state on April 29 in federal court in an attempt to lower the water levels further.

Nessel filed a counter-lawsuit against Boyce arguing to keep the water levels higher because it could cause the “death of thousands, if not millions, of freshwater mussels.” This pressure from the state regulators ultimately led to the water levels in Wixom Lake being elevated, Boyce has argued.

“Defendants wrongfully exerted dominion over the freshwater mussels and caused their death, which denies and is inconsistent with the State’s rights to them,” the Michigan Attorney General’s Office wrote in their May 1 lawsuit to keep water levels high.

“The state agencies clearly care more about mussels living in the impoundment than they do about the people living downstream of the dams,” said Lee Mueller, a part owner of Boyce Hydro LLC, which owns the Edenville Dam.

In typical fashion, EGLE is denying all culpability in their behavior to push for the water levels to be raised.

“There has been some misinformation about what transpired between Boyce and the state,” said EGLE spokesperson Nick Assendelft. “The narrative by Boyce that somehow when the state was handed regulatory authority we pivoted from concerns about the infrastructure to concerns about clams is neither accurate nor fair.”

“Boyce Hydro’s desire to save money did not outweigh the natural resource damage an extended, winter drawdown would cause,” Assendelft added.

However, EGLE inspected the dam and claimed it had “fair structural condition” shortly after the feds revoked its license considering the dam unfit to generate power.

“There were no observed deficiencies that would be expected to cause immediate failure of the dam,” the 2018 state report said about the dam.

Whitmer and Nessel will of course try to deflect blame, but it is clear that their actions led to this nightmare that could result in an environmental disaster as well with Dow Chemical being headquartered in Midland.

EMAIL LEAK: Nashville Dem Mayor’s Office Colludes to Hide Data Indicating Restaurants and Bars Were Not COVID-19 Hotspots

Leaked emails have shown the Dems are deceiving on COVID-19.

Published

Democrat leaders of Nashville, Tenn. have been exposed for colluding to hide data showing that bars and restaurants were not major transmission points of COVID-19 despite the fake news hype.

Some of the top advisors of Nashville Mayor John Cooper have been indicated in a plot to hide information that might alleviate some of the mass hysteria related to COVID-19, which has crippled small businesses including bars and restaurants.

While Democrats have looked the other way with regards to mass protests featuring violent communists and anti-white thugs, they have incessantly demonized restaurant owners and bar owners throughout the pandemic. The contents of this email leak suggest that Democrats are targeting restaurants and bars to punish the American people and hurt the economy to hurt President Trump’s re-election chances.

The controversy stems from findings by the state’s contact tracing team. They determined on June 30 that nursing homes and construction were major hot spots for the spread of COVID-19, with each category logging over a thousand cases of the virus. However, bars and restaurants accounted for only 22 cases. The Mayor’s officials schemed to keep this information away from the public.

“This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?” asked Leslie Waller of the health department.

“Correct, not for public consumption,” senior advisor Benjamin Eagles added.

This created the de facto policy of keeping the information under wraps by the Mayor’s office. The health department refused to confirm the numbers when they were asked about them during the summer by the press.

Tennessee Lookout reporter Nate Rau asked: “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a very big problem?”

Health department official Brian Todd said to five health department officials: “Please advise how you recommend I respond.”

The whistleblower, whose name was redacted from emails, reportedly responded at the time: “My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site. We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.”

Nashville Councilman Steve Glover is up in arms about the Democrat officials plotting to keep the people scared and in the dark regarding COVID-19 numbers.

“We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments…and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal,” Glover said to FOX 17 News about the Democrats omitting this crucial information from the public.

This is not the only instance of the COVID-19 numbers being fudged to keep the panic alive with the beleaguered public. There has been constant subterfuge from globalists to convince the public that the lockdown is necessary.

Big League Politics has reported on the staggering overstatement of COVID-19 case numbers by reporting facilities in Florida:

The Florida Department of Health is scrambling after fraud was discovered in how COVID-19 testing rates were being reported across the state.

After the health department released a report showing a stunning statewide positivity rate of 11 percent, analysis of the numbers revealed severe irregularities. Many labs reported 100 percent positivity, meaning that every test came back positive.

In addition to the labs reporting 100 percent positivity, there were other testing facilities that reported abnormal levels of positive tests. FOX 35 found that Centra Care reported that 83 people who submitted tests were all counted as positive. The Orlando Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center reported a 76 percent positivity rate, NCF Diagnostics reported tests at a 88 percent positivity rate, and Orlando Health reported a 98 percent positivity rate.

Orlando Health has admitted that the results from the health department’s report are dubious. They said that their positivity rate was only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as it was shown in the report. This casts major doubt regarding the accuracy of the total cases that have been reported in Florida.

The fake news has used Florida as an example to bolster their COVID-19 mass hysteria due to all of the supposed cases that were popping up throughout the state.

There have been reports of COVID-19 case numbers being faked in Texas as well:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced last week that the number of new COVID-19 cases was erroneous, with an artificially high number of cases, due to system upgrades and coding errors with their reporting system.

Abbott explained that the Texas Department of State Health Services brought in a data team to review the suspect numbers. The positivity rates reached a stunning 24.5 percent last Wednesday, which caused the media alarmists to create more hysteria among the beleaguered masses.

DSHS press officer Lara Anton said that this happened because of a computer update that occurred on Aug. 1, resulting in positives being uploaded into the system multiple times. Coding errors were also discovered in one hospital lab and another commercial lab that resulted in additional positives being counted to the total.

Dallas County Director of Health and Human Services Dr. Phillip Huang made excuses for the glaring errors which are being used to shutter certain businesses throughout Texas.

“We are still dealing with paper faxes of lab data and lab reports – hundreds of those a day that we’re having to deal with,” Huang said.

“The systems have not really been designed to handle this many numbers,” he added. “It’s an unprecedented situation we’re dealing with.”

While the so-called experts would like to make it appear as if this some kind of honest mistake, irregularities in the reporting have steadily occurred throughout the country.

Democrats have engineered this scamdemic and cannot give up on the lie because they would be held accountable for the needless damage they have caused to the American people for political purposes.
