Fracking Trump Country With Eliza Griswold | Why Is This Happening? - Ep 10 | MSNBC 1


What does it look like when fracking comes to town? For folks in poor rural areas, parts of Trump Country before we had Trump Country, fracking can mean opportunity, wealth, and autonomy for some, destruction and ruin for others. Journalist Eliza Griswold tells a story that begins in the Niger delta and brings her to the doorstep of a family farm in Southwest Pennsylvania in the midst of the energy boom. There, in the towns of Amity and Prosperity, she learns about the intimate and complex reasons why people chose to bring fracking to their town, and the crisis they face when mysterious illnesses begin to appear.

  1. What is the hardiest thing to find at a Trump rally?

    A full set of teeth

    Please add your own punchline

  2. It’s happening because we’ve let Republican’s subsist on whataboutisim. They do the most insane, immoral, borderline illegal stuff and then blame the other side for calling them out on it. After the civil rights movement, we became afraid of calling Republican’s what they ALL are, (R)acists. Also, didn’t this lady win her Pulitzer because of nepotism, straight up handed it by her husband who was on the board.

    If MSNBCannibals are talking about Tectonic plates and attacking fracking.. What they mean is they are setting off underground nukes to blame on fracking.. MSNBCannibals are HYPER evil.

    • @She’s my President I did not vote Hilary, however I never voted for the traitor in the White House either. But I will say this; after everything I seen and heard, I could never vote for traitor Trump. I care about my country’s future. It is obvious you do not!

    I had leased 2 separate offices over the past 8 years. The county sent me a tax form indicating that I needed to pay taxes on the contents of my office.

    The first time they called me, and I thought it was a prank call. Then I started to receive annual tax bills from the county.

    I told the guy when he called me: I said that I found some of my furniture in dumpsters, and then whatever else I have isn’t worth much, and I also didn’t have a lot in my office.

    I was told if the value of my office contents is below $x.xx, that I wouldn’t owe taxes.

    I told this chap: this makes me want to remove everything from my office. I totally don’t understand this taxation; I’ve already paid taxes when I purchased these items.

    The American energy department gives the oil and gas industry eight billion dollars a year in subsidies so they can dump gas overseas and keep oil prices high in America to spur investment, so your tax dollars go to pad the pockets of the rich to make them richer and you pay in your bills and taxes, American corruption 101

    Hitler, Stalin and Mao were socialists and killed millions who disagreed. The Nordic countries are not socialist as proclaimed by AOC and Bernie Sanders.

      With the prominence of the company, president of General Motors, Charlie Wilson said it best – “What’s good for General Motors is good for America”.

  8. *Trump supporters are one dimensional thinkers;* He represents their inner core beliefs, bias & identity, so tarnishing Trump in any way, diminishes them and hurts their tiny little feelings. Ignorant Sycophant believing the fake Russian corruption is over, so now it’s fake news about The Ukraine, or Turkey, only exhibits their willing & gleeful ignorance. Unable to understand the complexity & web of corruption in this administration. Conceptually only able to add 1 + 1 or connect two close dots, in a clear line of sight. No concept of other mathematical principals or common sense conclusions.

    • You are describing only a small percentage there. The vast majority of so called Trump supporters are actually virtual illusions created by a team of Russian led spies that are well paid with money from organized criminal operations that have involved Trump and his organization for a long time.

    • @Donovan, Wow!
      – With your massive brain and your ability to I’m sure multi-task and think multidimensionally I’m sure you can explain to us all why historically there has never been a period of economic prosperity or an expansion of World Peace due to Liberal policies?

    • Said by a perfect example of the tolerant and inclusive left. We are all welcome to believe and live how we want. As long as the leftists allow it.

    CNN and MSNBC wanting their viewers to “keep trusting” them is like The Watchtower telling their Jehovah’s Witnesses followers to “keep trusting us” even though every single date setting prediction they have given for the end of the world has come and gone.

    All their laughable “moments of reckoning.”

    Russian collusion
    Michael Avenatti
    Robert Mueller
    E. Jean Carroll
    Stormy Daniels

    So much more of their laughable LIES TO COME in their “days of reckoning..”

    The chances of Democrats impeaching Trump, overthrowing him in some coup, or in beating him in the 2020 election is like throwing shaving cream against a brick wall hoping the bricks will break.

    Sure liars sure. C’mon! TRY HARDER!!!! Form all your lying weapons!!! LETS SEE WATCHA GOT!

    Lets see you “get” President Trump out of Office!!!

    The Father, Son and Holy Spirit have chosen President Trump for 2 Full Terms and NOBODY AND NOTHING CAN OR WILL STOP IT!!!!

    C’MON!!!!!!!!! TRY HARDER!!!!!!!! HARDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      @S T like the look above said kid…try harder. 😉

    • Hahahahahhaha, said by a true Fox News viewer and believer in superstition. As if Fox News with the fake Seth Rich Story, Clinton e mails, Bengahzi stories and caring water for the pathologically lying Trump is telling the truth. Hahahahahaha. Just compare the number of Bill Clinton, Obama and Hillory Clinton people indicted and convicted (zero) with the number of Trump people indicted and convicted (TEN and counting)

    Nevada ranks #1 in highway infrastructure. Thanks Harry.

  11. “The department said it found a total of 588 violations involving information deemed to be classified..and concluded “that the use of a PRIVATE EMAIL SYSTEM to conduct official business added an increased degree of risk of compromise as a private system lacks the network monitoring and intrusion detection capabilities of State Department networks.”” LOL Clinton2020 ..Russians!

  12. Your view count and comments clearly disagree with this statement “MSNBC delivers breaking news and in-depth analysis of the headlines, as well as informed perspectives. Find video clips and segments from The Rachel Maddow Show, Morning Joe, Hardball, All In, Last Word, 11th Hour, and more.” LOL total garbage. Click bait.

    Today I prayed for world peace, protested the patriarchy and marched for free menstrual products for women, and for those who identify as women. I’m a wonderfully enlightened and compassionate person, who overflows with empathy! I’m totally non-judgmental but I hate people who don’t struggle against oppression! They can drop dead!

      @Ken Fields I’m a loving and compassionate Progressive! I want to make the world a better place! I follow in the footsteps of compassionate freedom fighters, such as Mao, Che and Winnie Mandela! Also, using lots of profanity adds gravitas to my statements.

      @bingo_fuel My dear beloved, I send healing violet energies of the universe to you! We have absolute moral authority, as compassionate Progressive thinkers! Remember to build community, spread loving-kindness and overthrow the misogyny of the evil patriarchy! Submit to Gaia! Pray to Saint Greta of Thunberg! Repent for the original sins of this corrupt nation, which has only brought violence, misery and privation to those who lovingly struggle for equality, in the name of justice! Have no mercy, destroy everything! Guilty until proven innocent! Hate Has No Home Here! Kindness, Always! #VegansForLove #DetachDismemberDiscardUterineParasitesNow

  15. There’s no downside for the Republican Party dumping Trump. As zealous as anyone thinks his Base is, the moment Trump falls they’ll disavow ever supporting him.

    If you doubt that remember you couldn’t find anyone who would admit they voted for GW Bush after 2008. And Bush once had approval ratings in the 80s.

    When Trump is removed they’ll say he was just Hillary in a dark suit, a sham pretend Republican, an East Coast elitist con man, and truthfully a criminal.

    • And how is the deporter in chief Obama doing in Progressive, leftist, and liberal circles. The Reps got rid of the Tea Party, Proud Boys, and Alt Right. Dems still have weekend flings with ANTIFA.

    Fracking is a pathetic way of getting stuff done, change my mind

  19. just to be clear, every town in America is Trump country lol. even in Los Angeles, Trump got votes

  20. I decided Trump shouldn’t be President early. When Trump failed to tell David Duke publicly and loudly to get off his side. We all have to deal with racism in the United States but we don’t have to vote for it!

    • There are actually very long videos of Trump disavowing Duke. You should also watch the full video of his “very fine people on both sides” speech for Charlotte. MSM edits his statements A LOT. Usually the real meat of his statements comes a second or two after CNN and MSNBC cut out. CNN has actually been caught dubbing in the reporter over the parts they do not want you to hear.

    • @SPZ Aruba He said this but he meant that. He didn’t say that the liberal media is editing his statements. He said that but he was joking around. Really? It’s the deep state. It’s Hillary Clinton… Trump supporters and Trump himself have to invent fantasy after fantasy to justify Trump.
