NV Candidate Worried About Fluoride and Chemtrails

A Republican candidate for the Clark County Commission in Nevada named Cindy Lake, who has been endorsed by none other than Ron Paul, went off at a recent event about the evils of fluoride in the drinking water and expressed concern about the dangers of chemtrails.

Then the moderator asked her about fluoride in public drinking water.

“That is another one of my passions,” Lake said. “I’m completely anti-fluoride.”

She said toothpaste tubes warn against swallowing, and she said that was reason enough to remove fluoride from the water supply.

“It costs us just under a million dollars a year to add what is a toxic industrial waste chemical to our water, and we’re paying for that, when if you want it, you can certainly buy your own toothpaste that’s fluoridated,” Lake said. “I don’t want to give that to my family, and I don’t want it in my water.”

An audience member took the microphone and, gesturing toward the sky, warned that the greatest public health hazard came from chemtrails.

“Who’s polluting the county? How do we stop it? I don’t know,” the man said. “But they’re doing it all over the world, this geo-engineering. For who? What are they trying to do to the human species?”

The moderator tugged his leather jacket, and the video was edited at that point and then resumed as the man walked away from the microphone and took a seat.

“I do think an investigation has to be undertaken by the county commission and find out exactly what our role is there,” Lake said, without specifying how the investigation would be conducted or funded. “I don’t know who’s doing it; it’s a secret operation. As far as chemtrails go, I don’t want to be poisoned as much as anybody else, so I would vote no.”…

Lake told the man they should discuss the issue later, and related an anecdote about inventor Nikolai Tesla’s so-called “death ray” that is widely shared among chemtrail conspiracy theorists.

“I’m not 100 percent sure what’s being sprayed up there, and why, if anybody was spraying us — aren’t they spraying themselves, too?” Lake said. “I do think that there’s some validity to it. I don’t have the science to prove it, but as with drones, I think things can be used for the good and for the bad.”

“Unfortunately, the government, when they are given any kind of tool, tend to use it against the citizens to control us, so my perspective is, I wouldn’t discount it without further investigation because there is some proof to (it), from what I understand in my research,” she added.

I’m sure her “research” was very thorough. I bet she stayed on the Alex Jones website for a good 5 minutes.

    Not to long ago, I was foolish enough to get into a conversation with someone about “chemtrails.” After explaining why it would be a poor method for spreading mind control drugs (yes, that was her thesis) and getting nowhere, I noted that there was a MUCH more effective way: car exhaust. The cost of gas was going up because the cost of the mind control drugs kept going up, thanks to the effort of people in the know, and the end product was close to the ground where people could breath it. Occasionally, it gets so thick that you can actually see the drugs in the air.

    Oh, the look of shocked horror on her face was priceless.

    But she doesn’t say anything about the pervasiveness of dihydrogen monoxide in our society. It’s in almost everything we eat, it is added to almost every canned food, it corrodes metals, it is the major component of acid rain, and directly causes thousands of deaths each year. Perhaps she should be worried about it too.
    Though NV is one of the safer states as regards exposure to it.

    If she is elected, she should be appointed as a committee of one to go out to McCarran International Airport and stand as close as possible behind the jet engines on all the planes with an open mason jar to collect samples. The study should last at least six months … if she does.

    “I don’t know who’s doing it; it’s a secret operation. As far as chemtrails go, I don’t want to be poisoned as much as anybody else, so I would vote no.”

    Umm … vote no to what?

    Rethugs are really going for quality candidates in their next intake I see!

    It would seem anyone that votes for such a fatuous dim moron, well they deserve all they get…not sure that is fair on the remaining rational contingent, but seems they are not exactly imbued with top quality in their likely choice of opposition either…nope from every angle…yous dudes is goosed’ ….

    It used to be that chemtrails were ways of getting rid of toxic waste cheaply. That, or CIA mind-control drugs. Now they are claimed to be some sort of geoengineering. They rarely specify what kind because, I suspect, there are numerous versions of this conspiracy. I would guess that there are two main categories – causing global warming (so that Swedish climatologists could get rich off carbon taxes, I suppose) or preventing global warming (recklessly).
    .
    Their belief in the possibility of conspiracies of hundreds of thousands of people, and their appalling scientific illiteracy allows them to embrace the most astonishingly arcane, obtuse, and mind-staggeringly stupid ideas.

    Nice to know that *Doctor Paul* is endorsing a scientifically illiterate moron running on unfalsifiable conspiracy theories. Glad to know I have options other than the *good doctor* for health care.

    I think Clark County should investigate the chemtrail problem as well. Why not?

    !. They won’t find anything.

    2. The negative findings won’t change her mind anyway.

    I’m sure Cindy Lake buys into all the conspiracy theories, an anti-Vaxxer who is looking for the 50 million Moslems stashed in the National Forests, while the UFO’s land and take off at Area 51, which is either in or close to Clark county.

    At this point I’m just assuming that anyone from Clark County NV is a right wing, tea party, conspiracy theorist moron. All evidence so far points in this direction.

    There are numerous ways to investigate geoenineering or stratospheric sulfate aerosols for the stated purpose of solar radiation management. OK. There you go. It’s pretty simple to get started. Go to your Google search box and type in any of those words I just mentioned. Keep an open mind. Do your own homework. Did you know that millions of people have been slaughtered by governments and dictators throughout world history? These events can be searched as well. Here are some examples: Pol Pot, Stalin, Hitler, Concentration camps, Gaza OK. There you go. It’s pretty simple to get started. Go to your Google search box and type in any of those words I just mentioned. There are numerous ways to investigate. Finding out the truth while it’s ongoing is difficult. Most world leaders don’t publicize their evil deeds. As it turns out most evil done in our world is done in the dark. Except Chemtrails that is. Wake up!! but, to do that, you will have to do your own homework.

    Hmmmm let’s see…. Googling…..
    ‘unicorns’ gives 5.17M hits & ‘toothfairy’ gets 2.41M hits!
    Both must be TOTALLY REAL !!eleventy-one!!! We’re through the looking glass here people!*

    Also – all these passenger jets fitted with special outboard wing-tanks for sulphur dioxide, I hope those tanks are thoroughly desiccated otherwise it could turn out to be – well – unfortunate in so many ways.

    @ dingojack #14
    I read #13’s comment and have been following his method for some time and the inescapable result is that the topic is utter nonsense and that that was the point. What I couldn’t figure out is what the second part was all about since that is true. Then your comment showed me that he was a believer and then it made sense. Thanks for the help. Though I think the miscreants he listed could all articulate a reason for their actions but I can find no rational reason for poisoning everyone with chemtrails.
    I did go and reread the MIT study on aluminum helmets and as I remembered their conclusion was that aluminum actually concentrated the frequencies trying to be avoided and the whole aluminum hat idea may be a government ploy. I think tin foil helmets, though, are serviceable. Provided, of course, that it is real tin foil and not government aluminum foil in a tin foil box. I suppose you could have it tested and a government lab….

    In fact, in order to create a SO2 cloud one wouldn’t need a jet aircraft at all. I calculate that at a height of 6532m (21434ft) would be sufficient (assuming a ground temperature and pressure of 288.16K and 101.325KPa, respectively). Of course, if the ground temperature is less than the boiling point of SO2 (at STP) , that is 263.06K (-10.1 Celsius)*, you could do it at ground level.
