CIRCLE OF LIES: Dodging Blame for the Flint River Disaster

As the tragedy of the Flint water-contamination crisis leaks out to the world, Gov. Rick Snyder and his staff have worked hard to downplay, spin, ignore and outright lie about the problems, which stem from disastrous choices by the state and the governor’s emergency manager appointee. This short film by the ACLU of Michigan exposes the truth behind Snyder’s waffling, the emergency manager’s horrific decision to abandon clean water provided by Detroit in favor of using the corrosive Flint River as the city’s water source.

Eddie Munster look-a-like elected U.S. House Speaker

The Chicago Tribune reports, “Splintered Republicans elected Rep. Paul Ryan House speaker on Thursday, turning to the youthful but battle-tested Wisconsin lawmaker to mend the party’s self-inflicted wounds and craft a conservative message to woo voters in next year’s elections.

“The House is broken,” Ryan said in his first remarks to the chamber, seemingly referring as much to a GOP civil war between hard-liners and pragmatists as to the House’s usual partisan divisions. “We are not settling scores. We are wiping the slate clean.”

In a slow-moving roll call that mixed politics with pageantry, 236 Republicans called out Ryan’s name as their pick for the job. That put him second in line to the presidency and atop a chamber that has been awash in tumult ever since defiant conservatives hounded Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, into announcing his resignation from that post last month.

Hastert pleads guilty, but ‘so much unsaid’


Editorial: “Was the longest-serving Republican speaker of the U.S. House a sexual predator? Who were his victims? How many were there?”

I didn’t watch the “debate” but apparently here’s what I missed: it was long on chaos and short on facts…
