    Houston is now in the throes.. My initial post has been correct. The 610 Loop area is inaccessible – flooded. Most of the suburban flooding has been in the southeast side – I saw they have gotten the brute of the rain yesterday afternoon and overnight.

    Here is the SECOND PHASE.. The ADDICKS RESERVOIR on the West side.. roughly bordered by I-10 on the South and Hwy. 6 on the West.. the whole park area. It is a basin for floodwater coming down from the surrounding counties. IT IS GOING TO GET FULL.. When that happens the SUBURBAN WEST SIDE WILL START TO FLOOD..

    This is a warning to all on the West- Northwest side of Houston., In many areas your first floor of your house will be flooded.. Only the higher terrain areas north of Tomball will be spared.. If you want to leave now, head north on Hwy 249.. you still can make it, but soon 249 will have flooded low spots.. If you stay, just tie a knot and hang on.. It’s probably gonna be until next Friday or so before you can venture out into Houston proper..

      And if Addicks dam breaks? If it is topped it will be a true catastrophe. They were worried about that issue during Allison.

        Yes. It could get a whole lot worse – and it will. This is a learning incident – many new arrivals will have learned their lesson and become hurricane prep battle-hardened. Prep for at least a couple of weeks of home camping. After this week, there will be long lines of people in grocery store parking lots to have a chance to get meager basic staples. Same goes for gas.. Sad.. Don’t be one of “those” people.. Shoulda woulda coulda.. gotta prep for Gulf hurricanes folks..

        Yes, I am near Houston, it is an essential hub for business and pleasure. Was in town a week or two ago.. had an enjoyable time. My wife and I love Houston.. it’s where we met.. good times and a lifetime of memories there. It was a great ride..

          Government will provide MRE’s Meals ready to eat………not bad actually ….used by military also will provide bottled water and ice. The major concern will be turning on the power because of fire hazards so some will go without power until each home is individually approved or area is approved …….Of course going without a paycheck or being able to open your business up is a big problem. We received small weekly disaster assistance same as unemployment which in Alabama is next to nothing. Friends who owned small business had to take out a Fema loan to keep the doors open……no freebies for the folks that have to keep their business afloat. Funniest thing I remember about 1979 when Hurricane Frederick hit was the free liquor festival. Because the ABC liquor store was blown away unopened liquor was was all over the place. It was a race between locals and State officials as to who could get to the bottles first. Grocery store opened it doors to give away free refrigerated and frozen food. Thank goodness my husband and I were young and rebounded quickly many were not so lucky. Prayers for all in Texas…..

        It’s up to someone who’s clean and unaffiliated with the swamp to expose the truth. What if Pres Trump could leverage the information, to bring Congress to its knees? I know it sounds awful, but perhaps that would be the best political outcome. The Awan blackmail and stupidity situation (or something more nefarious) should not be simply dismissed as “business as usual” in the swamp.

    Please look at this item it is a stuntman head stand brace.Then Look at the head of man in the crash still shot. There is what looks like a version of this brace right at Red Shoes Knee and Headstand man is pressing against It . Any other ideas what that strange Item is?

    https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=YTGBq%2bbD&id=462F3593C5C434C6B084919214C58FE382F272FF&thid=OIP.YTGBq-bD8JuYuNm_GIkuqAEyDM&q=images+charlottesville+crash&simid=608034553251105573&selectedIndex=8&qpvt=images+charlottesville+crash

    Here is the still shot

    It has already been determined the Still shot was staged or Photoshopped , none of the Signage In the Still shots in front or the car, show up in the video , many have mentioned that it is a high resolution camera and focused maximum on The two acrobats.

      • The best way see the see the stunt belt on the Man who did the handstand on the back of the car in the Still shot is to go to the next video in the Sequence , the video that starts with the black truck .Mr HeadStand is the one in khaki shorts Grey shirt who falls to the right .He is sitting for about two seconds ,then gets up and walks away .It is obvious Headstand Man has one.
        Mr Red Shoes who also appears to have one on is sitting on the hood of the Toyota truck .

        That was an amazing recovery for men hit by a car hard enough to go over the top and Mr Headstand who was hit hard enough To knock his feet about 8 feet in The air And somersault about ten feet up the road .
        The other thing that gives away the Still shot is Man In blue .If you look at the angle of the car and the wheel, you realize that if the car was in motion there is no way the Man in blue could be there,if he was there he would have either been hit or brushed back Most observers believe it is either staged or shopped. and everything was done stationary .
        They then just Loaded everyone on and they Rolled them off the sides of the car Stunt people do this daily .Many have commented on the light and believe this was all done in advance,they say light is different ,that could be the cameras.
        If you look closely at headstand man,in the still photo you can see that both arms are in a perfect headstand position ,but the real kicker is the stunt head brace ,he has his face pressed right up to it .
        No one has been able to tell me it is anything else all Day .I have not found that model but I have seen similar ,There are two or three bars up in a three finger configuration and you can See The bar going down From it on this side The ones online had a bar that went down the other side not visible, and a base bar connecting the Base( not visible) in a triangular base configuration .
        I believe it is a brace unless someone could tell me different.
        I am convinced that is a still setting with the wires to RedShoes and Fly boy shopped out
        The photo is obviously shopped or stage as none of the signs are showng either in the video or the still shot where the driver brakes as someone is running in front of him

        The multiple stop signs in the background are rather strange you stop and then you pull one car forward and stop again a car length later.crosswalk maybe ,strange
        ,not likely The background appears to have Trees in the upper right and I saw no trees in any video
        And my god look at the background it looks like a World war two Russian enlistment poster

        agree. All these protests groups are on the LEFT including neo-nazi’s.
        And always have been from the left.
        None of these are right leaning groups.

        The left is just trying to run away from their creations and blame somebody else.
        That is what the left does best – blames others for their messes.

        The left OWNS all these groups. They created them. The left needs to disavow all these left groups including neo-nazi’s.

        The right neither created or owns any of these groups.

        Many on the left know they are bad and evil, so always try to make the right seem evil. Almost all evil comes from the left. Almost all criminals are on the left.

        Bottom line:
        This letter is totally bogus. It means nothing and would do nothing. The President has already clearly and to the cameras said all those things. It matters not how many times PDJT says these things, the MSM and Left will still call him a racist. That is all they have. The left is racist, so they project racism on PDJT to try to make him look bad.

      Sorry, but I don’t think the President has to do anything else to “prove he’s not racist.” I’ve got a feeling Star Parker is the kind of person to whom one can NEVER prove one is not racist. No amount of disavowing will ever be enough. Instead, she should start focusing on actions and not words, and she would see that a lot of people have nothing to defend when they conduct themselves in a just and impartial manner THEIR WHOLE LIVES THROUGH. Also, one cannot demand the unquestionable right to define the symbols and narrative of one’s own heritage without granting the same right to others. It is about what defines another people to them, not what offends YOU. If you feel ‘uncomfortable’, you should turn off CNN, take a look around and see what’s really going on, and quit being so thin-skinned and paranoid. And quit looking to coerced apologies to give you a sense of power over others.

      1. The President has not a racist bone in his body. If Ms Parker isn’t aware he received an award for black outreach from Jesse Jackson and used to date a biracial woman, perhaps she is unqualified to be a pundit.

      2. President Trump has enough on his plate with a war, a major hurricane and flood, and trying to get tax cuts through Congress.

      3. If the statues are SO offensive, why wasn’t anyone agitating to take them down when Saint Obama was president? Did everyone just come out of a coma or something?

That Parker would suggest that he would need to go on national television and say that he is against it is ridiculous because it is OBVIOUS! Perhaps Star Parker could have penned an article asking then president Obama to tell the American people he was against islamic terrorism, that he was not an enemy to Christians and that he loved America, because those things were certainly not evident!

        Charlottesville was as staged as the supposed Russia Collusion. They did not count on the death occcurring, but then again they did take that risk. Shameful. And it has been a big red flag that while the white supremists were condemned Antifa was not — except by POTUS, who condemned all sides that were violent. Common sense.

        The red flag is not the Dems, from whom that is expected, but people like Coh, Tillerson, and the usual garbage out of the mouths of McCain, Ryan et al. POTUS has absolutely nothing to apologize for about this idiocy. But those hypocrites that are sanctimoniously virtue-signalling instead of speaking truth do.

Yet they keep on with it, even while saying that this should not be politicized, they proceed trying to do so, hoping that someone will finally say something anti-Trump that they can then play over-and-over agan and have a panel disect it ad finitem.

    I am so proud of President Trump – wonderful reaffirmation on Friday with the pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio – it is even good that the usual suspects – McCain, Flake and Ryan have to reaffirm our opinions of THEM –

    Fridays are getting to be great again – always something now –

    My wish for one of these Fridays – or any other day of the week would be fine – if it is feasible to do so:

    Announce a plan as part of the tax overhaul to NOT tax bonus checks that employees receive – let’s say you make about $2,500.00 a month but if you exceed certain metrics, you receive a bonus check of $1,000.00 from time to time – but when you get paid your paycheck, it actually doesn’t result in very much more because they take so much out – sure, maybe if you have a home and at the end of the year on your taxes, you can get some kind of break – but I would like to see NO taxes AT ALL on performance bonuses – and furthermore, roll back any taxes that were put on your bonuses that you earned since January 20, 2017 –

    would that be a horrific toll on the national debt to do that? I think it should have a positive impact – those people who might be able to come up with a down payment on a house more quickly or who can then purchase things they need that will help the economy – or of course, they could save their money – maybe have this in line with a new initiative to have Americans SAVING MONEY FOR THEMSELVES and not having it flushed down the toilet by wasteful government bureaucrats.

      • Loop Hole???
        Maybe we can look at it this way.

        One of your natural rights is to work, to earn, to keep ALL that you earn. That’s not up for discussion. However, the federal government took the exercise of that right away from us via the 16th Amendment in 1913.

        That “loophole” is just rightly letting us keep more of our earned money and rightly pointing the government (federal and state) back in the direction they were created to begin with and that was to protect our natural rights, not take them from us.

        In other words, it’s not a loophole if it should never have been taken away. The government created a political law to circumvent a natural law.

    I am so tired of all the swamp creatures that have made their way into the White House. I’m disgusted with all of them. I’ve never been particularly impressed with Rex Tillerson, and my opinion of him is even lower now. He seems like nothing more than a globalist and a politically correct hack. If you can’t support the president, then resign and let someone more able take your job. It’s as simple as that. I cringe when I see people here gloat over Tillerson, fondly calling him “T-Rex.” I’d like him to resign and take the other swamp creatures with him. It’s amazing to me how these people think nothing of undermining (and insulting) our President. All of the cabinet members and staffers are at-will employees, which is something that they seem to forget.

    Interesting conversation earlier with a guy in my bible study group. He is currently a City Councillor and running for the AL senate next year. I’ve known him for about 18 months and have heard his opinions as well as seen his actions. I like and respect him. With him being on the inside, so to speak, I asked if he had any comments regarding the Strange/Moore run off and what he thought about PJT’s endorsement of Strange. He said the endorsement was a show of good faith to McConnell that give and take can be a mutual thing. Since then our president has been advised to distance himself endorsing either candidate. He also said the lobbyists had been breaking down his door over Strange and he didn’t like that at all. He had worked with Strange recently when Luther, true to his word, took a letter from our City Council to the president, but he doesnt want to vote for him. I asked about Moore. He said he is the most rigid, opinionated, intransigent and uncompromising man he has ever met, and he has met him on several occasions. He said he has no regard for his fellow man, only for his own opinions. He does not negotiate. It is his way or nothing. He doesn’t want to vote for him either. So who else is there, I asked. Nobody, was his reply. We don’t have a good choice of a candidate who will support and work with our president in Alabama. Rock and a hard place. Do we support a man who nobody can work with that will be no help at all to the president unless the motion passes his purity test or do we support a man that we might have a better chance of working with if McConnell is removed at some point? I don’t know right now. Just have to see how things start to shake out as we get closer.

    A primal fallacy many people are making.
    1) You cannot and never will be able to reason with or apply reasonable arguments with an irrational person.

    many people try to say what the President should do to PROVE he is not a racists. Thinking that once he provides the “proper” proof and documentation, they will believe that he is not a racist.

    See rule #1 above. Never will happen.

    Many on the left, Dems, and MSM are totally irrational people. And can only be handled like you would handle a 2 year old.

    2 year old’s do not understand logic. To them it is always Mine Mine Mine. Do not get what they want Whine Whine Whine. Do not get the answer they want. Ask the same question Again and Again and Again.

    1) You cannot give in to a 2 year old.
    2) And they often need a time out – silence to think about what the have done.

    So any time you hear somebody saying what the President should do to stop the racist calls, Russia calls, etc. from the left. Forget them. It is a fail.

    Bottom line:
    1) All rational people already know President Trump is not a racist.
    2) All totally irrational people that hate Trump can never be convinced he is not a racist using logical arguments.
    3) those who are rational part of the time, may be convinced if you get them when they are not ranting and have gone to a quiet corner to reflect and listen. That time is not now.

      This guy is a liberal and is complaining that Antifa is shutting down “regular” liberals who want to protest President Trump peacefully. I hadn’t thought about that, but can see that Antifa is a problem for people like that.

      So what I learned here is Antifa might possibly help bring “regular” liberals and President Trump supports to some kind of common ground. That wouldn’t be a bad thing, if it should happen.

      The second (or third?) speaker made good points. He asked his fellow “regular” liberals in the Bay Area to stop pointing fingers at President Trump (and the federal government) because they (liberals) can fix their local problems — they have the resources. All of that is true! It was a pleasure to listen to this guy. I sure hope more people like him will start speaking up.

    Good news:
    1. Just got back from a week-long family beach vacation on the outer banks of NC.
    2. Due to apolitical family and cute grandkids, we were having too much fun to get in more than 15 minutes of news/blog time per day.

    Bad news:
    1. Settled in this morning with my tea to catch up on CTH and was shocked to find an anti-Gorka, cushy-Cohn vibe floating around. At least we all agree that the mayor of Houston is an absolute idiot! I am of the “TrustTrump” club, so I do not question the firings. However, I like Bannon & Gorka because they were were great defenders of POTUS & MAGA, and I will continue to like them until they would betray POTUS. The interviews they gave do not even approach that line in my mind. I have great belief that they will slaying the dragons from outside and will not do a single thing that is not in the best interest of MAGA.
    2. Disgusting, but not surprising to see the ilk of Ryan & McCain disagreeing with the Arpaio pardon – what truly evil creatures these two are. This, and other signals from the likes of McConnell, deflate my hop of a productive legislative session (tax reform, H/C).

    Thanks for the space to rant. Now, back to being positive. Glad to be back on my branch!

    Folks, we need to be very circumspect with some of the recent Charlottesville VA conspiracy theories being pushed through social media. I have a strong hunch that there is an effort to discredit any narrative suggesting the C’Ville violence was a set-up, or in legalese, a conspiracy to commit a number of criminal acts in violation of federal and Virginia laws. The motivation to discredit this narrative is simply this: There was sufficient evidence to immediately commence a federal investigation which included conspiracy to violate civil rights. From what I’m hearing, investigators continue to gather substantial electronic evidence (video, social media forensics, etc.) and are likely to request production of documents and later, persons for interviews. In short, the left is very worried because they know they left a trail.

    Making matters worse were the three deaths that day which has kept this sordid event in the news way past its expiration date. So doubling down, we see and hear of a “Zapruder tape” and we read of the two Virginia State Troopers walking from the site of their crashed helicopter. This is the type of crap that will get played by the un-American media over and over again to discredit the C’Ville investigation.

    Sure we all want answers fast. It’s very likely we know who the primary actors are behind C’Ville and the ‘Resist’ scumbags. Remember that there has been so much corruption in government and media over the last thirty years, with an exponential growth spurt during the bastard president’s reign, that answers will not come quickly. But they will come in due time. Wariness and patience is needed, not re-tweets and reposts of fake news.

There are some real questionable hinky stuff going on at CV including the lack of bystander vids, voices heard not to video tape the scene, largely muscular looking victims rolling over being hit by a slow moving car and then one seen sit casually on a car texting soon after.

    Bannon and Breitbart are ideologues with a distinct purpose of destroying Globalism.
    Trump on the other hand is a practical business man who hires people based on their statistical and past accomplishments. So you have the best General (Mad Dog) over defense, the best negotiator (Tillerson) who managed the largest multi-national corporation successfully, the most genius exonomic mind (Chon) from Saches for econonomy. Etc…
    If it was up to Bannon you would have Nationalist which no background of accomplishments at key positions.

Think about it, who would you listen to about Afghanistan, a journalist (Bannon) or a General who commanded the forces in Afganistan before and understands the consequences of a sudden withdraw ? I used to not understand why Trump doesn’t hire his friends (like Rudy Jiuliani ). Well, he wanted the State Department whose job is negotiations. Tillerson is a world class negotiator who managed the largest multi-nation corporation in America.
