Just one day after the Brandon regime rejected a plea by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine for federal assistance with the Norfolk Southern train derailment situation in East Palestine, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) suddenly decided to go ahead and provide the “assistance teams” after all.
DeWine tweeted that after Brandon said no, FEMA suddenly said yes to “deploying federal resources to East Palestine,” which was stricken with what some experts guess is the largest dioxin plume in history.
Together with FEMA, DeWine released the following joint statement about what is now happening in the town:
“FEMA and the State of Ohio have been in constant contact regarding emergency operations in East Palestine. U.S. EPA and Ohio EPA have been working together since day one. Tomorrow, FEMA will supplement federal efforts by deploying a Senior Response Official along with a Regional Incident Management Assistance Team (IMAT) to support ongoing operations, including incident coordination and ongoing assessments of potential long term recovery needs.”
Before this, FEMA Ohio had informed the state government that East Palestine was not eligible for any disaster assistance to help clean up all the toxins that were intentionally burned off from the wreckage by the government.
J.D. Vance, a Republican, and Sherrod Brown, a Democrat – these are Ohio’s two senators – had both separately asked DeWine to declare a disaster in East Palestine, which is described as a “small, blue-collar town.” Vance specifically called for Norfolk Southern to be held accountable for any and all damages.
The train crash in Palestine, Ohio is an ECOLOGICAL atom bomb. Why are details being hidden? Why are they LYING to people?

After visiting East Palestine, Vance visited a small creek bed and filmed what appeared to be toxic chemicals emitted from the wrecked railcars – watch below. This is after other officials declared to the public that the “air is clean and water is fine.”
Visited a local creek in East Palestine today. These waterways are still very polluted. It’s time for Norfolk Southern to finish the cleanup. Check this video out: pic.twitter.com/4lsHBmrMJj

Why did the government decide to intentionally burn off wrecked railcars loaded with noxious, cancer-causing chemicals?
There is still no clear indication as to why the government decided to ignite the crashed train’s railcars in the first place, knowing that they were filled with vinyl chloride and other dioxin-laden, cancer-causing chemicals.
By doing this, the government exposed potentially millions of people to persistent chemicals that are likely to sicken them and their families in the coming months and years, not to mention all the air pollution that will land on nearby farms.
According to some, the decision to blast the railcars and send their contents up in smoke essentially “chem-nuked” East Palestine and surrounding communities, which may not be safely habitable anymore.
Area residents are reporting chronic headaches, strange smells, and lots of dead fish and other animals ever since the explosion occurred. Some of them are also calling the Ohio toxic train derailment “the Brandon regime’s Hurricane Katrina.”
“Clearly, Brandon has not been mentioned as acting in any significant capacity for Americans dealing with this disaster,” reported Legal Insurrection.
“Even though the citizens of this region voted in significant numbers for President Donald Trump, they are still suffering a disaster that is truly worthy of full emergency management support.”
