Sara Carter traveled to Palestine, Ohio to give an exclusive report to Fox News’ Sean Hannity, on the aftermath of the train derailment carrying toxic chemicals. Residents remain concerned about the chemical residue in the air, land and waterways after numerous reports of dead animals and fish being discovered. Residents say they want answers, particularly pertaining to whether or not it is safe to remain in their homes and community.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg did not respond quickly and ignored the crisis for days. Ultimately Buttigieg tweeted a lackluster message: “I continue to be concerned about the impacts of the Feb 3 train derailment near East Palestine, OH, and the effects on families in the ten days since their lives were upended through no fault of their own. It’s important that families have access to useful & accurate information.”
Reporting from Ohio, where Buttigieg “should have been” Hannity stated, Carter spent time with the local community members. “They are very worried” and “want answers” Carter explained standing in front of caution tape, explaining workers have been tirelessly trying to clean out the creek bed with running water.
Carter also spoke with Chief Stephen Szekely of Mahoning County Hazmat Team; the first person on the scene when the explosion took place. “The gates of hell were open” stated Szekely, as he described fighting the fire.
One local resident told Carter he has put out bird feed but “has yet to see a sparrow.”

Electric Vehicle company with Chinese ties awarded $500 million of taxpayer money for 2nd U.S. plant
With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.
Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.
The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.
In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.
“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.
“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”
Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.
“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
