Houston Mayor Told People There Was No Need to Evacuate for Hurricane Harvey

Despite Texas Governor Abbott declaring a state of disaster from the effects of Hurricane Harvey last Wednesday, the mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, advised citizens to stay where they were.  Many areas were more than 20 feet underwater, and rescue operations were required, particularly for senior citizens. A Houston resident, Rebecca Reisig, posted a Facebook comment that the Houston City Council knew Hurricane Harvey was expected to do greater damage than was being reported to the public, and her report went viral. In response, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett advised worried citizens that the Facebook rumor was false and that people should get their news from official sources, a line that was parroted by Mayor Turner. Facebook removed Reisig’s account. –GEG

A Houston-area woman set off a firestorm in the hours leading up to Hurricane Harvey’s landfall when she wrote on social media that local officials and the mainstream media were misleading the public about the severity of the incoming storm.

Resident Rebecca Reisig said the Houston City Council knew Hurricane Harvey was expected to do far greater damage than was being reported to the public.

Hey guys, I’m not trying to start a panic, but as some of you know, I work for a law firm here downtown. One of the lawyers I work with has a friend on the Houston City Council. The news is not telling the whole truth. The storm is expected to be three times worse than what the news is saying because they don’t want a panic on the freeways like Hurricane Rita. The City Council and Harris County Flood Control had an emergency meeting this morning. Evertything sound of Katy is predicted to be devastated. They’re predicting 50 inches of rain, not 24 like the news is saying, and 100,000 homes destroyed. Theyre expecting all of Houston to be without power for three days. If you guys live in a flood zone, you need to get out of Houston or try to stay with someone further north of Houston. I hope they’re wrong, but that is the latest I’ve heard from what the news isn’t telling you. Stay safe everyone.

Canadian Professor Reveals the Danger of Google Censorship

Dr. Jordan Peterson was shut out of his Google accounts but then was restored after his Tweet about it went viral. It is suspected that he was censored because he spoke out against the Canadian law that prohibits the use of biologically accurate gender pronouns to describe transgenders, He also has spoken against the teaching of Marxism in schools. Peterson says he is worried that we are building an ‘unconscious mind’ into the internet that will automatically censor things before they can be written, and will block information about events before they happen. In this area, Google is more powerful than government. [They are both run by people of identical mindsets.] –GEG

 




President Trump Pardoned Controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Arizona Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, was pardoned by President Trump on his conviction for criminal contempt after he defied a court order and refused to cease traffic stops of  vehicles suspected of carrying illegal immigrants.

Arpaio became controversial for constructing outdoor tent cities for prisoners, reviving chain gangs, serving bad food, and making the inmates wear prison stripe clothes and pink underwear to humiliate them. The intent of all that was to discourage crime and to stop illegal immigrants from entering his county. He says he was prosecuted by Obama holdovers because he conducted an investigation into Obama’s birth certificate and declared it a fake.  Arpaio endorsed Trump before he was taken seriously as a candidate.

The big rumor — emphasis on the word “rumor” — ahead of President Donald Trump’s trip to Phoenix for a campaign rally tonight is that he might issue a pardon for Joe Arpaio, the controversial former sheriff of Maricopa County.

“I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Trump told “Fox News Sunday” earlier this month. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot, and I hate to see what has happened to him.” Trump later retweeted the article about his comments.
The “will he/won’t he” speculation will run all day — right up until Trump takes the stage in Phoenix around 10 p.m. eastern tonight. So, it’s worth asking: How did we get here with Joe Arpaio?
Arpaio first came to national prominence in the early 1990s when, as newly elected sheriff of Maricopa County, he pushed the construction of Tent City — an open-air jail he viewed as not only a solution to prison overcrowding but also a way to burnish his tough-on-crime persona.
“We’re going to do it, and it’s time to get tough around here,” Arpaio said in 1993 when Tent City was unveiled, according to the Arizona Republic. “And to get tough, you have to have a place to put the bad guys.”
Arpaio also made prisoners wear pink underwear and pink handcuffs as a way of shaming them (and to stop them from stealing each others’ clothes). In the mid-1990s, he reinstated chain gangs — including for women and juveniles. He pushed for every mug shot to be posted online. He cut down prison meals to two a day — no lunch! — and banned the use of salt and pepper to save money.

In the half-year financial report for Rit Capital Partners, Rothschild explained the companies significant exposure reduction to U.S. assets.

Rothschild also gave his opinion that he believes quantitative easing programs employed by central banks, such as the Federal Reserve Bank in the U.S. will no longer be implemented. Rothschild was quoted in the written report as saying, “The period of monetary accommodation may well be coming to an end.”

Trump’s Economic Advisor Gary Cohn Described Antifa As Citizens Standing for Freedom

President Trump’s National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn said in a recent interview that members of Antifa are just concerned citizens ‘standing up for equality and freedom’.  He criticized Trump for blaming both sides for violence in the streets and said the administration must do better to condemn pro-white groups. [Another leftist mole shows itself in the Trump administration. Makes you wonder why Trump appointed these people and, even more important, why he keeps them. Who is calling the shots in the White House?] –GEG

National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn claimed that militant “anti-fascists” (or “antifa”) are just concerned citizens “standing up for equality and freedom” in a Financial Times interview that ran Friday.

“Citizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK,” Cohn said of the recent violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. “I believe this administration can and must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups and do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities.”

Cohn’s comments were a clear shot at President Trump, who took heat in the media for acknowledging that “both sides” engaged in the violence in Charlottesville.

Cohn drew no distinctions between peaceful counter-protesters and militant groups whose stated political goals go well beyond inflicting violence upon white supremacists. (RELATED: In Their Own Words: The Radical Political Goals Of ‘Anti-Fascists’)

As The Daily Caller has reported, “anti-fascist” groups are open about the fact that they aren’t interested in protecting America’s system of government — they’re interested in destroying it.

Christian Ministry Sues SPLC for Hate Map Listing

D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM) is suing the Southern Poverty Law Center for listing DJKM in its infamous ‘hate map’.  The lawsuit includes Amazon and Guidestar, who dropped DJKM from their services because of the listing. –GEG

A Christian TV ministry announced Wednesday that it is suing the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for labeling it a hate group, like the Ku Klux Klan.

Dr. Frank Wright, president of D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM), said he was suing the SPLC for listing DJKM in the infamous “hate map,” according to Christian Today. The SPLC’s hate map lists DLKM, as well as several other Christian and conservative advocacy groups, alongside the KKK and neo-Nazis. Kennedy claimed that the SPLC “illegally trafficked in false and misleading descriptions” of DJKM.(RELATED: 5 Groups Included On ‘Hate Group’ List Published By CNN Are Not Hate Groups)

“We embarked today on a journey to right a terrible wrong,” Kennedy said in the announcement of the lawsuit. “Those who knowingly label Christian ministries as ‘hate’ groups, solely for subscribing to the historic Christian faith, are either woefully uninformed or willfully deceitful. In the case of the Southern Poverty Law Center, our lawsuit alleges the latter.”

A domestic terrorist actually used the hate map in 2012 as the inspiration for an attack against the Family Research Council. The FBI ceased using the group’s list as a legitimate source after the attack.

“These false and illegal characterizations have a chilling effect on the free exercise of religion and on religious free speech for all people of faith,” Kennedy said. “After having given the SPLC an opportunity to retract, we have undertaken this legal action, seeking a trial by a jury of our peers, to preserve our own rights under the law and to defend the religious free speech rights of all Americans.”

Kennedy said the lawsuit included Amazon and Guidestar, who allegedly dropped DJKM from their services, which included the AmazonSmile Foundation’s charitable list, because of the ministry’s listing on the hate map. Kennedy claimed that DJKM’s removal from Amazon’s charitable list limited the methods by which the ministry could receive donations.

Apple Asks Users to Fund Alt-Left SPLC Group that Targets Conservatives

Apple iTunes users are being asked to fund the alt-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to ‘fight hate’ even though the SPLC already has $320 million in assets.  In the wake of Charlottesville, Apple CEO Tim Cook donated $1 million to the SPLC as well as another $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League, and he says he will match employee donations.  The SPLC labels traditional Christian groups as hate groups because they don’t go along with LGBTBBQ-progressivism.  JP Morgan is also donating $1 million to the SPLC and ADL. Fox’s James Murdoch, one of two Trump-hating sons of Rupert Murdoch, has also donated $1 million to the ADL. –GEG

From NewsBusters:

Apple’s openly gay CEO Tim Cook sent an email to employees on Aug. 16 announcing the tech company would give $1 million to the SPLC and match employees donations two-for-one through Sept. 30, Daily Caller reported Aug. 17.

It didn’t stop there. An iTunes ad released on Aug. 20 asked users to “Support the Southern Poverty Law Center’s work fighting hate, teaching tolerance, and seeking justice.”

“This is not about the left or the right, conservative or liberal. It is about human decency and morality,” Cook’s email claimed. But the SPLC itself is a left-wing organization that attacks conservative organizations as “hate” groups. And those labels have had real, violent consequences.

kill as many people as possible.” The man told investigators he targeted FRC after finding it listed as an anti-gay “hate group” on the SPLC’s “Hate Map.” In 2017, FRC is still listed on SPLC’s website.

SPLC lists other conservative groups as hate groups on its website as well, including Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), American Family Association (AFA) and ACT for America. These groups are ranked as “hate groups” right alongside organizations like the Ku Klux Klan and Nation of Islam.

The nonprofit tracking organization Guidestar was the center of controversy in June 2017, when it decided to add “hate group” tags to all the profiles of groups listed on the SPLC website. Nearly all of the flagged groups signed a letter demanding the tags be removed because “SPLC’s aggressive political agenda pervades the construction of its ‘hate group’ listings.” Two days later Guidestar removed the tags.

Despite the SPLC’s left-wing bias and history of labeling conservatives “hate” groups, companies and organizations like Apple still support it. According to Foundation Directory, SPLC received more than $10 million in donations between 2013 and 2016 — even after the FRC shooting.

Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Alec Baldwin Foundation, The Gill Foundation, Newman’s Own Foundation and the Tides Foundation are just a few of the 853 groups that have donated since 2013.

Twenty-one of those groups — mainly community groups and private family foundations — gave more than $50,000 in that time frame.

SPLC also partnered with the Soros-funded ProPublica, Buzzfeed and Univision to launch a “Documenting Hate” project in Jan. 2017. The project claims to “build an authoritative data on hate crimes and bias incidents.” However none of the partner groups are conservative.

also donating $1 million to the SPLC and the ADL. Fox’s James Murdoch, one of two Trump-hating sons of Rupert Murdoch, has also donated $1 million to the ADL.

Not mentioned is the SPLC has some $320 million in assets, which is an obscene amount for a “non-profit.”

Germany: Facebook Deletes 10,000 Accounts Ahead of National Elections

Facebook in Germany deleted 10,000 accounts prior to the national elections next month, claiming they are eliminating disinformation and fake news. Earlier this year, Facebook banned 30,000 accounts in France just ahead of the French presidential election.  A former Stasi agent of the secret police in Communist East Germany now is heading an Internet patrol of Facebook looking for hate speech.  Many Germans have had their homes raided and received hefty fines for alleged hate speech on social media. – GEG

Social media giant Facebook has deleted thousands of German accounts ahead of the German national election next month, in a major crack down on facilitators of “fake news”.

Around ten thousand “fake accounts” were taken down by the company who claimed to have done so in order to protect users from “disinformation” ahead of next month’s national election.

The mass-banning of accounts is the latest crackdown by the company on what they deem to be the spread of “fake news”, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports.

The move by Facebook is also nothing new for the company who recently banned 30,000 accounts in France earlier this year ahead of the French presidential election.

Interracial Panel of Trump Supporters Blames Media for Racial Tension

CBS interviewed three women (one white and two black) who support Donald Trump and who believe the media is causing racial discord. They blamed Obama for aggravating racial tension over the past eight years by pursuing identity politics. –GEG

ATLANTA — With the president under fire for remarks about Charlottesville, CBS News checked in with some Republicans who voted for him. Janelle Jones, Ellen Diehl and Lucretia Hughes say their support for President Trump has not lessened.

“I don’t look at him as my pastor or my moral leader,” said Jones. “I look at him as the leader as it relates to governmental issues.”

“We are not looking for somebody charming,” Diehl said. “We are looking for a man who knows how to turn things around and he’s got a track record of turning things around.”

When she saw the violence in Charlottesville, Diehl said, for her, “it wasn’t necessarily a complete black-white issue. But I think the media is turning it into a black-white issue. It’s definitely a left-right issue. But its left fringe and right fringe.”

As for the Confederate monuments, Hughes said they are “history.”

“I wasn’t born back then you wasn’t either,” Hughes said. “So why is that affecting us? If anything we should grow and learn from it.  Just like Martin Luther King said, you don’t judge people by the color of their skin. You base that on their character.”

As for the criticisms Mr. Trump has faced about his reaction to racial tension, Hughes and Jones said that does not change their support.

“I think for myself. Period,” Hughes said. “Nobody is going to tell me what to think or how to think. I am not gullible and I am not blind. It’s my decision if I am going to support someone or not. Not go by what other people has to say and to me what I have seen and what I love, he is not going to lose my support any time soon.”

Armed Antifa Group Calls for Revolution, Stealing Property, and Attacking Police

Philadelphia: A new, armed Antifa group, the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, is calling for attacks against police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection. Additionally, they seek to abolish recognition of gender.

An armed Antifa group is launching a new cell in Philadelphia, with support from the “alt-left” alternative media.

The group currently hosts anti-police workshops called “Our Enemies in Blue.” The group draws inspiration from convicted murderers and calls for violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection.

Antifa websites like It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News have been promoting the group, which calls itself the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, calling on their readers to donate to a Fundrazr account for the creation of the new cell.

The press release the group published in far-left media is filled with hyperbolic claims about how “mosques are being ruthlessly bombed” and how “LGBTQ are being battered.”

“The destruction of black life continues unabated as millions languish in the plantations of the modern day slave system,” the group states.

Taking pride in the “legacy” of “Philadelphia’s rich revolutionary tradition,” RAM cites Mumia Abu Jamal, the Black Panther activist who shot and killed Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981.

It also cites Russell Shoats, who shot a police officer in the back five times in 1970. Similar to Antifa, the actions of the Black Panthers have been described as having a “very undefined purpose of assaulting police officers.”

Like other Antifa groups, RAM claims to oppose the usual -isms and white supremacy, but a quick look at the organization’s “Political Foundation” page, as highlighted by Far Left Watch, notes the inclusion of several alarming points, including the “Abolition of Gender,” and the “Expropriation and the Cooperative Economy.”
