1850-2010 Hurricane hype

PRAYERS! Prayer is so important. Hurricane Irma is in the ocean now. Please pray it dies out or redirects and doesn’t hit Texas, Louisiana, or Haiti!!

2017_08 39 Texans line up to volunteer

I need a tissue! Maybe I’m just being whelmed by the fact that my own flesh and blood was involved in this rescue. Or maybe it really is a story you’ll be glad you took the time to read in full. The thumbnails on the top right go to the rest of the photos Capt Nigrelle took of the rescue of a paralyzed man and his wife that ultimately involved Texas National Guard soldiers, Texas Task Force 1 and Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Service swift water rescue technicians, the U.S. Coast Guard, and local volunteers.

BE CAREFUL HOW YOU DONATE TO HARVEY RELIEF! Anti-Israel, Sharia law loving activist Linda Sarsour sparked outrage after she asked her followers on Twitter to donate to help Hurricane Harvey victims, but the link takes you to a political activist group.

This Monster Known as Harvey

We’ve been in touch with our relatives in the area. Their opinion is: “This is WAY worse than Katrina!” Eighteen counties have been declared disasters. It’s hard to fathom.

We claim two households in the area. One family home is fine and the inhabitants are helping with relief efforts. The other family was out of state to view the eclipse, so they’re safe, but their house is flooded, so they are staying where they are for now.

OF COURSE! THE FIRST LADY WEARING STILETTOS AS SHE LEFT THE WHITE HOUSE!
On Tuesday far left hacks attacked First Lady Melania Trump for wearing heels to board Marine One in the South Lawn on the way to inspect the damage the in Texas.
Leading the charge was Lynn Yaeger from Vogue Magazine.
“No, Melania Trump, You Cannot Wear Those Shoes to a Flood Zone”
Here’s the Fashion Editor Who Trashed First Lady Melania Trump on Tuesday. I can’t decide whether she’s the Queen of Hearts from Johnny Depps Alice in Wonderland or the result of a bizarre genetic experiment gone horribly wrong.


Yaeger and Vogue later softened their title on the First Lady:
“Melania Trump’s Hurricane Stilettos, and the White House’s Continual Failure to Understand Optics”

There’s A Simple Reason Women Journalists Attacked Melania’s Footwear, Guest Tells Tucker: ‘They’re Harpies!’

Those who criticized First Lady Melania Trump’s footwear when she traveled to Texas are just jealous “harpies,” radio show host Tammy Bruce said Tuesday night on Fox News.
“Clearly a lot of sexism going on there. But you know what it’s really based in, they’re harpies. They’re jealous and they’re envious,” Bruce said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday.

Shoes? Michelle Obama DIDN’T GO with Barack to NJ After Hurricane Sandy

What shoes did Michelle Obama wear when accompanying her husband to Atlantic City to meet with local leaders and comfort residents? The answer is, she didn’t technically wear any shoes at all to go to New Jersey, because she didn’t go to New Jersey.
I’m sure Melania is thinking, “I never asked for this.” Indeed, she did not. Unlike her predecessor, for example, she has not established her own taxpayer-funded fiefdom in the East Wing, cutting the first lady’s staff from the 24 Michelle needed to just five.
But no one will thank her as long as she’s in heels.

My Brush with Celebrity

Shortly after I started on Facebook I became friends with a brilliant writer who is a columnist for a major political blog. I don’t want to mention the name; it could cause irreparable harm to his reputation having friends like me. Anyway, we were discussing the wretched, slimy reptile known as the governor of Virginia. As we were waxing poetic about what a steaming pile of toad excrement he was, Kathleen Willey — yes,THAT Kathleen Willey — joined the conversation. We echanged a few thoughts and when I lamented how frustrating it was that these two felons have never and WILL never pay a price for their crimes, she told me not to be too sure. Maybe there’s something she knows that we don’t.
It was clear the assault she suffered at the hands of former president Ben T. Penis may never fully heal. At least there is some solace that she, Paula Jones, Juanita Broadrick, and all the other victims of this soulless sociopath got to see Hillary Rotten Clinton get humiliated last November. As they say, revenge is a dish best served cold.

How The Left Gets Away With Unlawful Discrimination

In the United States of today, only liberals and the far-left are allowed to discriminate without fear of penalty and do so with a vengeance.
For the last 40 years-plus, liberals and the far-left have not only come to dominate the media, academia, and entertainment, but have systematically engaged in an effort to limit or outright eradicate Republican, conservative, libertarian, independent, and even Christian thought.

Judge Rejects Palin’s Lawsuit Against New York Times

YOU CAN SLANDER PUBLIC FIGURES AT WILL AS LONG AS THEY’RE CONSERVATIVES. JUST SAY YOU DIDN’T MEAN TO IF YOU GET CAUGHT. COURTS ARE A FORGIVING LOT.
Judge Jed Rakoff said Tuesday that while the offending editorial contained a few factual inaccuracies, they did not rise to the level of defamation of a public figure, the Associated Press reported. He also noted the Times subsequently issued a correction.

Hurricane survivor rips CNN for exploitation
IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THIS, IT’S WORTH WATCHING. THE MEDIA ARE PRESSING EVERYBODY TO TRY TO GET A NEGATIVE OPINION OF THE PRESIDENT THAT THEY CAN FEED OFF OF.
Did CNN wander through the shelter and corner her when she was clearly still reeling from what she went through or were they stationed somewhere inside the shelter where people who wanted to talk could approach? There’s a fine line, as Harry Enten said, between humanizing the disaster and exploiting it. It’s not obvious from this snippet which side of the line CNN was on.

MONDAY:
Coalition of Leftists Begin 10-day “March To Confront White Supremacy”
Among their demands is Trump’s removal from office
Activists are set to start a 10-day march from Charlottesville, Va., to Washington, D.C., on Monday to confront white supremacy and demand President Trump’s removal from office.
“The March to Confront White Supremacy,” is set to start in Charlottesville Monday, Aug. 28 and end in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Organizers say the march will be followed by an occupation of Washington with daily nonviolent demonstrations.

YESTERDAY:
It Only Took A Day For The March To DC To Lose Nearly All Of The Marchers
The March to DC from Charlottesville, Va., started with nearly 200 marchers Monday, but by Tuesday morning there were only 35 marchers.
The overnight rains were enough to keep all but “about 35” from marching Monday morning, the day after the pep talk when police escorted the group from Emancipation Park downtown Sunday

Box Office Bust: Revenue Down 70% Compared to August 2016

THEY BLAME IT ON THE HURRICANE, ON THE ECONOMY. THERE’S AN OBVIOUS ANSWER THEY WON’T ADMIT: THEY CALL TRUMP HITLER, CALL US NAZIS, FASCISTS, RACISTS, BIGOTS, WE’RE STUPID, WE’RE EVIL, BLAH BLAH BLAH. THEN THEY EXPECT US TO SHELL OUT $30 TO GO TO ONE OF THEIR STUPID MOVIES AND SPEND ANOTHER $20 ON POPCORN AND A SODA.

GOP Rep’s Proposal Would Defund Mueller Probe After 6 Months

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) has proposed an amendment to the upcoming federal spending bill that would “severely curtail” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump after six months.

The congressman’s amendment stipulates that no funds from the spending package “may be used to fund activities pursuant to [the special counsel probe] later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act.”

THIS COULD BE DONE UNLESS RYAN TELLS HIS PACK OF RINOS THEY NEED TO KEEP THE INVESTIGATION GOING

Houston Police Nab 14 Armed Robbers and Looters as City Struggles with Harvey Aftermath
If convicted, those arrested could face heavier than average sentences due to laws that provide stiffer penalties for such crimes committed during a crisis. The average penalty for home invasions or robberies is two to 20 years, but under crisis conditions, the penalties jump to five years to life.
Chief Acevedo warned lawbreakers that the city would not “tolerate people victimizing others.”

They Just Can’t Help Themselves

Yesterday, President Trump (I STILL love typing that!) held a joint press conference Monday with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto. Like Pavlovian dogs, whenever the press gets a chance to harass (Arkansas is the only state where “harass” is two words) the president, they can’t resist. They jumped on him about issuing a pardon to patriot Sheriff Joe Arpaio. There is not another man in Washington who would have responded the way Trump did. He proceeded to rip them a new one about all the sleazebags, terrorists and felons that were pardoned by Obama and Clinton with nary a peep from these howling jackals.

Trump addresses Houston flooding: The people of Texas have really persevered

I THINK THE MEDIA ARE SO FULL OF THEMSELVES, THEY DON’T REALIZE THE FUN HE HAS PISSING THEM OFF.

Donald Trump calls Chelsea Manning ‘he’ while comparing her to Joe Arpaio. Ms Manning has undergone a very public transition from man to woman.

Ms Manning, who was convicted on criminal charges for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents, has undergone a public transition in recent years to become a transgender woman. She saw her sentence commuted earlier this year by former President Barack Obama.

In addition to Ms Manning, Mr Trump referenced Marc Rich — an investor who received a pardon from former President Bill Clinton on his last day in office — and Oscar Lopez Rivera — a Puerto Rican activist and militant whose sentence was commuted by Mr Obama.

CRUZ HITS BACK

After MSNBC Host Broadsides Ted Cruz With ‘Gotcha’ Question About Hurricane Sandy, He Drops the Thunder

“But a lot of people are pointing out that you voted against aid for Sandy after that catastrophic storm up in the Northeast, that package back in 2012. They’re pointing at you and they’re pointing at you and saying, ‘You’re asking for money now when you weren’t willing to help the people in the Northeast.’ What do you have to say to them?” she asked.

“Well, look, there’s time for political sniping later,” Ted Cruz said before Tur cut him off. “I think our focus needs to be on this crisis and this disaster….  The problem with that particular bill is it became a $50 billion bill that was filled with unrelated pork. Two-thirds of that bill had nothing to do with Sandy. And what I said then, and still believe now, is that it’s not right for politicians to exploit a disaster and people are hurting to pay for their own political wish list.”

Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church Closes Doors to Displaced Harvey Victims

HIS REASONS ARE HIS OWN. I SUSPECT HE REMEMBERS WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THEY OPENED THE SUPERDOME IN NOLA TO DISPLACED PEOPLE. THERE WERE RAPES, MURDERS AND THEY LEFT IT IN SQUALOR WHEN THEY FINALLY LEFT. MAYBE HE DIDN’T WANT THAT HAPPENING TO HIS SANCTUARY. JUST A GUESS.

[CtH: Or he’s just showing his true “money first” colors.  IMO, this man’s “prosperity theology” preaching has nothing to do with what Jesus Christ taught. http://www.thebiblicalworldview.org/is-joel-osteen-a-false-prophet/%5D

Joel Osteen is facing a public relations nightmare as his 17,000-seat facility, Lakewood Church, is keeping doors closed during the overwhelming crisis caused by Hurricane Harvey.

New Security Footage Shows Looters Robbing Houston Store Amid Historic Flooding

As The Gateway Pundit reported Sunday, an eyewitness named Isabel Torres uploaded a video to Facebook which shows looters making away with televisions.

Looting Begins In Houston

Cajun Navy members met with gunfire by apparent looters, group says.

Members of the Louisiana Cajun Navy, a group of Louisianians helping Tropical Storm Harvey victims in Texas, were shot at Monday by apparent looters, the group said on Facebook.

The Cajun Navy has become widely known across the state for its response efforts during natural disasters and is made up of different groups. The group of first responders previously provided assistance to Louisianians during last year’s historic August floods.

One group of rescuers are in Texas already and more are expected to be on the way. Those who have arrived have brought their own boats to aid in the rescue efforts.

Houston Dem Mayor Told Citizens to “Think Twice Before Trying to Leave Houston” — Now They’re Dying

SHADES OF RAY NAGIN, THE FORMER MAYOR OF NEW ORLEANS, NOW A CONVICTED CRIMINAL, WHO DREAMED OF TURNING THE CRESCENT CITY INTO A “CHOCOLATE CITY.” HE LET HUNDREDS OF BUSES SIT IDLE WHILE PEOPLE WERE TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM KATRINA. THEN HE BLAMED GEORGE W. BUSH. THERE’S A REASON WHY EVERY BIG CITY TOILET IN THE COUNTRY IS RUN BY DEMOCRATS.

The Houston mayor told citizens to “think twice before trying to leave Houston” before Hurricane Harvey hit.

Now Houston is flooded, the city is expecting more rain, looters are ransacking stores, and people are dying. And it’s only going to get worse.
On top of that, Mayor Turner is not taking the governor’s calls:

A Virgin Mary Statue Was the Only Thing Standing After Hurricane Harvey

THIS WAS TOO GOOD TO HIDE IN THE REPLY SECTION:

A family in Texas lost their home to a fire during Hurricane Harvey, but they’re finding comfort in the only thing left standing: A statue of the Virgin Mary. The Rojas family of Robstown, Texas, had boarded up their home and left town ahead of the storm, but an electrical fire broke out and quickly spread in the winds of the storm, destroying their home as well as two others.

Message From Hurricane Harvey: Americans Helping Each Other

For once, cable news is not dominated by talking heads shouting at each other, but by images of volunteers, black and white, arriving in flat-bottomed boats to rescue neighbors from flooded buildings. Journalists are helping to direct emergency crews to save stranded drivers rather than encouraging enraged mobs to riot against the police.

Houston vs. Berkeley
I FELT COMPELLED TO INCLUDE THIS FROM DIANNY AT PATRIOT RETORT

Yet the news media has spent the last two weeks trying to convince us that those violent, disgusting thugs are “standing up to hate” and “preserving the fabric of America.”

It’s hard to watch those videos and not think, “What the hell is wrong with people?”

The Antifa cretins marched through Berkeley chanting, “No Trump, no wall, no USA at all.”

How someone could watch video of these animals and believe they are “anti-hate” or “peaceful” is anybody’s guess.

But they are not America.

This weekend in Houston, we witnessed the true spirit of America.

The guy with the Confederate flag on his boat is saving everyone. Blacks, whites. Everyone. #Meyerland #Harvey

I know it’s difficult to watch the violence Antifa is bringing to our streets and not grow discouraged at the sight of such madness.

But they are not America.

And they don’t want to be.

After all, they’re the ones chanting “No USA at all.”

But the American spirit is greater than this.

And there are more of us than there are of them.

We are America — where neighbors help neighbors.

And strangers drive in from great distances to come to the aid of others.

This is the America Antifa despises.

This is the America Antifa seeks to eradicate.

But they won’t win.

There is something more powerful than the evil of Antifa — and that’s the true spirit of America.

And the true spirit of America transcends race or national origin.
