Americans watch in horror as a train derailment scares the town of East Palestine, OH. Thanks to no-show head of the Department of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, a train carrying hazardous chemicals derailed outside of town. And the geniuses in the government decided it was better to burn the chemicals, just to get the tracks cleared.
That has led to one of the worst government-led disasters since Flint, MI. Pete Buttigieg was MIA for nearly two weeks. Thousands of Americans fear going back into their homes, even as the government dismisses their concerns. As you’d expect, Ohio requested aid from FEMA. But now, Biden is turning his back on them.
From The Post Millennial:
The Biden administration has refused requests from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine to provide help via the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to aid in the cleanup and recovery from the February 3 50-car train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio that released toxic chemicals, including vinyl chloride, into the area.
This is really unbelievable. Biden can give away over $100 billion of our money to Ukraine. Kamala can pledge hundreds of millions of dollars to countries sending us illegal aliens. But when actual Americans are in desperate need, the White House refuses to lift a finger.
Keep in mind, this is largely the Biden administration’s fault. The Department of Transportation is supposed to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen. And officials were the ones to decide to burn off the toxic chemicals, putting many lives at risk (beyond just Ohio). Yet Biden denies this request?
This was the administration’s weak excuse.
From Fox News:
A Biden administration official told Fox News Digital that it has provided extensive assistance to surrounding communities following the chemical release earlier this month in eastern Ohio. However, the official said the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the agency that usually provides relief to communities hit by hurricanes and other natural disasters, isn’t best equipped to support the state’s current needs.
Bull. FEMA is literally called the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This is an emergency. A train derailed, releasing harmful chemicals into the community. People can’t go back to their homes. The water might not be safe to drink. Hell, the air might not be safe to breathe.
Yet FEMA is slamming the door on Americans? This is the same administration that refused to help Florida after Hurricane Ian destroyed countless homes. So, don’t tell me FEMA has other things to worry about.
What this really looks like is a politically-driven agency refusing to help a Republican-led state. Ohio’s governor is Republican. Is Biden denying aid, because DeWine’s a conservative? Biden seems to have the cash to help illegal aliens, criminals, foreign wars, and China.
But he can’t scrap together a few bucks to help Americans? We see how it is, Joe. And we won’t forget this.
- The Biden administration is refusing FEMA aid to Ohio after the train disaster.
- The White House claims FMEA is not “best equipped” despite being a disaster relief agency.
- The train derailment was due to a lack of leadership on the part of Biden’s DOT head, Pete Buttigieg.
