An excerpt from an article concerning protest action.
Police figures show that between November  and January , 2947 service delivery protests took place across the country, most of them in KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng and the Western Cape. In contrast, between January 2009 and August 2012, 3258 protests took place.The protests, the police figures show, are also becoming increasingly violent. In all provinces except the Western Cape, significantly more violent protests took place in January than in the previous two months.November saw 115 violent protests take place across the country, but by January, the number had risen to 180.

Three examples out of thousands:
LIMPOPO – The R37 road between Polokwane and Lebowakgomo has been reopened after members of the Thogwaneng community blocked the road on Thursday morning. “The R37 road is open and traffic is flowing as normal. The reason for the protest is still not clear,” says police spokesperson, Col Ronel Otto. Motorists [sic] were earlier [sic] cautioned to use alternative routes after vehicles were damaged due to the protest. Public order police members were on the scene to monitor the situation.
DURBAN – Protests closed two of Durban’s key highways during peak rush hour traffic on Monday morning. Police spokesman Major Shooz Magudulela said that protests closed of Durban’s N2 near the Lamontville township while another protest closed off the M19 highway near Reservoir Hills. Magudulela said that at the M19 protest about 300 people from the informal settlement started gathering from about 2.30am and blocked the road with burning tyres and rocks. He said police used stun grenades and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters and that by mid-morning on Monday the highway was still closed with motorists being diverted to use alternative routes. “The reason for the protest is unknown at this stage. No arrests have been made and no injuries were reported,” he said.
CAPE TOWN – Western Cape traffic department says the N2 near Knysna is now open to traffic. It was earlier reported that residents from Nekkies were demonstrating, but the reason for the protest is unclear. Police responded to the protest which had forced the road closure. Resident burned tyres on the roadway, forcing traffic to turn around. Motorists were urged to use alternative routes. Provincial traffic chief Kenny Africa says the roadway was opened for traffic a short while ago. “The crowds have dispersed but there is still a large presence of traffic and police officers in the vicinity, but otherwise everything is back to normal.”
Award-winning author and playwright Zakes Mda says South Africa is heading for a bloodbath if the ANC loses the 2019 general elections because the president is unlikely to relinquish his grip on power. A long-time ANC supporter, Mda fails to see how the party will garner more than 50% of the vote with President Jacob Zuma at the helm. Neither does he believe that Zuma, who Mda believes is petrified of facing imprisonment, will voluntarily step down before his term draws to a close in 2019. “Many people think that Jacob Zuma will go. Oh no, Jacob Zuma will not go … he knows that if he goes all those [corruption] charges and all other nuances pertaining to the Guptas will come and he will end up in prison. “He wants to stay in power because, [for] as long as he is in power, he is able to manipulate the system, such as the NPA [National Prosecuting Authority], by planting his own people there who are going to protect him. [If he were to step down,] he becomes vulnerable and therefore he ends up in prison. He is going to fight to the death if anybody tries to put him out.” Mda said.
The link between the lavish refurbishment of President Zuma’s Nkandla homestead with its bunker and the passing of the Protection of State Information Bill and Cabinet’s threat to transform the Judiciary should not be under-estimated. It is a portent of things to come. The building of the bunker should not be our only worry, but its link to underground tunnels that connect it directly to a helipad, should fill us with horror. Political rulers, with life-long ambitions to stay in power, build bunkers. Ditto Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Robert Mugabe and many dictators who have gone before.
As South Africa President Jacob Zuma is forced from power, a growing water crisis is overtaking South Africa and escalating threats of white land confiscation without compensation have increased racial tensions to disconcerting levels. Simon Roche joins ((((((((((((Stefan Molyneux)))))))))))) to discuss the on the ground situation in South Africa as the country braces for what can only be described as outright civil war.

January 5, 2018
It appears that Tony Blair (of all people) is a reader of the Daily Stormer and is woke on the coming race war.
Now he just needs to name the KIKE behind this diabolical agenda.
More countries could break away from the EU in a wave of populist revolts, says Tony Blair. The former UK PM has called on EU countries to “seize the moment” and to deal with underlying Muslim migration issues.
Blair told German newspaper Die Welt that the same migration concerns that sparked Brexit aren’t issues faced solely by the UK, and other EU countries could face backlashes down the line.
“Let’s be clear: the anxieties of the British people that led to Brexit are not confined to Britain,” he said.
“With strong leadership we would seize the moment of Brexit also to deal with those underlying issues which are not only the preoccupation of the British people but are the preoccupation right across Europe. Because otherwise, this populism will get fueled.”
Blair made a clear distinction between EU migration – a problem that he believes is only an issue in certain areas of the UK – and non-EU migration. He said tensions occur from non-EU migration “when people aren’t sure the people coming are sharing our values” – particularly from majority-Muslim countries.
Blair believes this is already an issue in Holland, Denmark and Sweden.
At the end of December, Blair’s think tank, the Institute for Global Change, released a report warning of a populist uprising in Europe as voters become frustrated with European immigration issues.
Last January, the former Labour leader poured a whopping £10 million of his funds into the Tony Blair Institute, another step in forwarding his anti-populist crusade.
So he’s basically saying “whoa, you guys are going too hard too fast.”
This is not a regular liberal position, but it is said by people exactly like Tony Blair – people who were heavily involved in politics and then moved out of politics and are now commenting on politics. Several retired politicians from mainland Europe have said it.
Ultimately, all of these people know that Europe will be Islamic. No serious person can deny that. Even if you closed the borders yesterday and didn’t let a single one of these monkeys in, if you did not remove the ones that are here you’d still be looking at an Islamic Europe by 2070ish.
So apparently, these people don’t care about that. Honestly, I don’t think any of them who are not Jewish care about anything that happens after they die. Most of them don’t even have children, and those that do, like Blair, are so narcissistic and boomerish that I don’t think they can process the idea that life will exist after them.
But none of them want to see the whole thing come crashing down in front of them and then get blamed for it. Blair is only 64, so he’s got another decade or more left. And if a race war breaks out, that isn’t going to reflect well on him after he was the one who opened the gates.
The anti-white seminar (which takes place monthly in Santa Monica CA… California which is ground zero for the race war) about white privilege took place yet again however we weren’t there this time. They are getting the jewish journal and ADL after us now. The Santa Monica mirror is reporting fake news about us and put out this video…
There is ONLY one way all this is going to end:
What we are about to read is really retarded beyond belief. It basically represents a demand of surrender to an enemy invading force – it cannot be interpreted as nothing else. What I shall point out immediately, as if the title of this article didn’t reveal it, is the “spiritual” connection these demands have with Christianity – which was, is, and always will be – yet another invading force into the European lands. It is remarkable how one can see the Jewish fingerprint in all of these movements; they haven’t really changed anything in the groundwork of their strategies – they merely change the mask of the movement, that is to say, the main theme of it. What yesterday was the Biblical Sin, is today the Sin of being born White. What the New Testament demanded by selling all your property and giving it to the poor – is today social justice towards non-White people. Only an outright imbecile, at this point in time, cannot see the same patterns unfold in front of our eyes.
I always return to this crucial paragraph within the New Testament, as this mind sickness was spreading into our homelands – 1 Corinthians 1 : Brothers, consider the time of your calling. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were powerful; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly and despised things of the world, and the things that are not, to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast in His presence. It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”
If one were to link this statement to the universal idea of God having Chosen the Jews – then God chose the least wise, least powerful, non-noble, foolish, weak, lowly and despised people of the world, namely the Jews, in order to nullify everything that is wise, strong, healthy, noble and that makes sense. If this is the purpose of the Jewish God, of the Biblical God, then this God has no other mission but to destroy everything just, beautiful and natural. It tells you right here, right in these few sentences, what that motherfucking god is all about. And this has been the main characteristic of every Jewish “social movement“. They always pick up the most stupid people, round them up, heat them up, engage them against Aryans and destroy them through such a strategy. The idea of only “boasting in the Lord”, is equal to the current theme of the movement. In case of BLM, you are only allowed to boast in the name of Black, Brown and – in general – non-White people. Everything else is not permitted and is regarded as hateful, hate speech, and against the Will of the Jewish God. Imagine a Jew speaking to Black people, a Jew who is financing the BLM movement :
And those who had nothing, never developed anything, never could or would be able to pose a threat against the Jews – would end up being used to destroy those who did have something, who did develop almost everything, who were a direct threat to the Jews. After all is said and done, all that would remain are lunatics with no organization, no skills, no mind, no reason – and the Jew ruling over them. The main mission would be accomplished : No one would remain who would be able to “boast against the Lord“, which is to say – against the Jews. The present “pleasures” which the Jews are giving to the non-Whites while exterminating us are exactly that – passing moments which mean nothing the grand scheme and design of the Jews. Give the non-Whites money, give them pleasure, abuse and use them by luring them in through various desires – it means absolutely nothing in the long run, in the Jewish timeline. What matters is that White people go extinct and that Jews can afterwards rule supreme.
And while the Jews control and manipulate the Black Africans, just like they do – mind you – many of the Whites among us, they have quite the different agenda with them in their own military base called Israel. Banning Africans is not just one measure the Jews have in mind. There were many such news articles about “immigrants” trying to enter Israel. Many Africans were simply shipped to Sweden and European Nations. Others, alongside many Muslims, were shipped to Australia. Other routes include Canada – and yet no one seems to notice, no one seems to care when one is capable of pointing out Jewish hypocrisy. The Jews have been slave-trading black Africans for the last thousands of years, yet managed someway, somehow, to make Whites look as the source of Slavery upon this planet. Having Slavery as a commandment from God written in the Jewish Bible is simply again not important, it is not something that we must discuss, it simply does not exist.
The natural European life style of “do it yourself“, “help yourself“, “be self-sustainable“, “be self-reliable” – simply does not include the idea of slavery. It came from the Middle East with the rise of the Jews and their Arab cousins. I have yet to see a “Black Lives Matter” movement attack Arabs for still, to this day, having tens of millions of Black Africans slaves. The Sun would sooner explode than for Africans to stop enslaving one another in Africa – or eating one another – for that matter. If the Jews could, they would have used Australian Aboriginals for their global agenda, they would have massively bred them into existence and would be sending them all over the planet instead of the Africans – but – the Australian Aboriginals are simply too different, too primitive, and impossible to even control on such a scale and level. It would take far too much controlled race-mixing with several specimen in order to create a breed of mixed Australian Aboriginals that could be easily controlled and still ruin everything around them. Thus, the Africans were used. Thus, the Africans were mixed with White slaves and the modern day “African-American” was created.
Chanelle Helm, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter-Louisville, came up with a list of 10 commandments for White people. In general, Whites are to give up pretty much everything they have, their entire existence, because, as she claims, they are bound to find a way to earn money due to being “privileged”. I assume the White Europeans in South Africa are also finding ways of becoming healthy, wealthy and strong again after having given up all their rights, all their land, all the property their ancestors worked for hard. The Africans are killing them by the millions, looting, robbing, raping, every single day – how is it, one might wonder – that those White Europeans down there just haven’t found another “privileged” way to rebuild a Civilization despite of these African marauders? How is it that a small pack of lions is unable to defend their young against thousands of hyenas? Meanwhile, as many of you know, the Africans are unable to produce food on the farms they have stolen from the Whites. Who helps them survive? Jews primarily, but through the monetary help from Whites. White Europeans, primarily from Europe and America, are sending to Africa billions of dollars in cash, food and medicine in order to help the Africans who are killing their own European racial brethren.
What a circus of a planet we live on. How can the European race advance into Space, research the wonders of the Universe, of Life itself – how can we invest time into philosophy, into science, into spirituality – when we are surrounded by Jews who wish to conquer the planet, by Blacks who wish to rape our women, steal our possessions and then return it all back to the stone Age, by Muslim who wish to conquer the planet and leave it in a never-ending medieval state of existence? It is remarkable how at the same time we are talking about creating AI machines, while having Jews talk about being God’s Chosen idiots. It is remarkable how we have the Internet while Muslims are still going down on their head 5 times a day because a Jew wrote that in a book they deem holy. It is remarkable how we can identify races, how we are deeply invested into the research of genetics – and we still have Jews and various other Social Justice imbeciles talking about equality, one human race and that we all just simply bleed red.
It is remarkable what we have achieved despite of these lunatics surrounding us. The hard work it took from being random tribes to creating beautiful societies. Mobile phones must be growing on trees because everyone can get one for free nowadays. They drive cars, use electricity, use the internet, take the train, go on airplanes, use PC’s, receive high tech medical help – and all of it – must simply be taken for granted. In the Jewish worldview, everything is happening for them, everything we develop – was God’s Will so that Jews might have it as well. In the Jewish Worldview, Nikola Tesla came into existence only for the Jews. So, Chanelle Helm, a Jewish brainwashed puppet, has the following first demand :
For those of you who might now be familiar with the term, a generational poverty is defined as a family having lived in poverty for at least two generations. You might as well give your stuff to the poor South African Whites, or to Eastern Europeans who earn barely 500 dollars a month for working a minimum of 50 hours a week. Those god damn privileged Europeans. But hey, this statement rings a bell, doesn’t it? Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me”. You can only be “perfect” in the eyes of both the Jews and the BLM people – if you simply give your property to one of them. Nothing else will ensure your entry into the New World Order, into the Heaven on Earth system which the Jews and non-Whites will establish and run.
It should also remind you of the Church and the spreading of Christianity among us. Nuns were created, women who would have no children, who would have to take vows of poverty and celibacy in order to “enter the kingdom of God”. If a woman had any property – she would all give it to the Church, and on top of it – would never have any children of her own. Talk about an ideological genocide. Many priests were required to do the same as well. Many men cut of their penises and balls in order to follow yet another set of words of Jesus : For there are eunuchs who were born that way; others were made that way by men; and still others live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it. Yesterday it was nuns, priests and eunuchs, today the message is to either have no children to save the ozone layer, or to race-mix yourself in order to redeem yourself from the sin of being White.
Not only were those man unable to have children, not only would they have to leave everything they might have had to the Church, but they would also become faggots due to the drastic hormonal change they would experience. Forget not the psychological impact the idea of “hell and heaven” also had on people – what better victim than an old man or woman – to destroy his mind with some made up vision of guilt, while offering him the option of giving all he has as an inheritance to the Church in order to redeem himself? Is that not what this entire non-White movement, led by Jews, is demanding of White people as well? We continue :
One would even find it reasonable if they demanded to be educated on how to build their own house, but in their materialistically mad-driven mind, houses are not built, they are simply bought with money and a fairy drops them from heaven with a parachute. You are to invest your money into creating residential areas for non-Whites for free, who will then also demand free food, free education, free medicine, free cars, free welfare, more money and eventually, when their numbers grow, will demand the right to take over areas, have political and social power and make decisions about even the most important things – decision that will only benefit them. You are to simply continue to help them destroy you, you are to make them believe that living as a parasite is a natural state of being for humanoids – it is, after all – the Jewish way of life.
The cost of electricity, internet, water, heat – all of that is simply irrelevant. They want it and they want it for free. And once they have it, they don’t want you to have it. I have said it many times before : A mind that cannot grasp what it takes to get clean water, to get electricity, to develop a computer – is a mind that has no respect for any of those things, a mind that has no respect, no understanding for the civilization that Creators create. Such a mind has no reason and it is simply futile to try and have a discussion with it. It will never get it. For it doesn’t see the path, the road, it only sees the end result.
There are no White families, you see – there are only a bunch of still-alive White people whose only last purpose in life is to uplift non-Whites. Do notice, all of these demands work wonderfully if there already exists a Christian foundation within the society. What can the Christian say in defense against these demands? He can only submit to them. His life is meaningless, his nation means nothing, he only has Jesus in his life and Jesus told him to sell everything anyways, to help and love even your enemy and those who wish to destroy and kill you – why should the Christian deny these demands? What does it mean to the Christian that White people will go extinct – all humanoids, after all – are simply One in Christ Jesus. The Christian feels pity for other humanoids for not having discovered Jesus, why he lurks around every corner, with open hands, waiting to accept the next idiot into his secret club.
For some of the Whites who still didn’t get it – you just have to leave everything you have to non-Whites. Any White person who wishes to preserve his people, his nation, his very existence – is simply a heretic in the eyes of the Black Lives Matter Church. When the Christian Church, led by Jews, grew enough in power to really persecute non-believers, they tortured them to death in the most gruesome and disgusting ways one can imagine. What do you think would the BLM Church do to your people, your wives and children, if they had an unstoppable power of such magnitude financed by Jews?
The Jews achieved one major thing : They really and truly are creating a Social Welfare Planet. These “children of the future”, these non-White race-mixed people, simply want free stuff. Free stuff which the Jews will gladly give to them – for the price of their soul. In our modern day times, such a future planet is called a “self-sustainable society”. How it will work without the people who created it, remains a mystery.
But, of course. One just couldn’t forget the monthly taxes one has to pay to the Church. In old times you were promised eternal life after death in the Jewish diverse and multi-cultural welfare system of Heaven; today you are promised a wonderful diverse, non-White, multi-nonEuropean-cultural, brown, race-mixed future. You might as well get a T-Shirt while you are at it for free : “I’m White and I committed Racial Suicide”. A trophy of the most delicate kind. Truly the Christian martyrdom spirit.
You have to motivate the followers of your faith to destroy the enemy. Destroy their buildings, monuments, heroes, idols, legends, stories, culture, race – everything. Get them fired from their job, kill them if you can, seize their property, give it to the Church and its leaders. You might believe in the faith, but if you are not really pro-actively living its spirit, then you are also basically a heretic. If there still existed a king in the past who resisted the Christian lunacy, you would have to kill him or remove him from power. For those of you in the knowledge, this should remind you of the last Pagan Roman Emperor who was back-stabbed and killed by a Christian soldier among his own ranks. In our modern day money-dependent Jewish societies, this is done by character assassination, which is the equivalent of death today.
The same shit Jews did with the French revolution. The same shit they did with the Bolshevik revolution. The same shit they did and still do with Communism. The same shit the Jews do with their controlled AntiFa puppets. But, of course, it just could never ever be the Jews behind it all. And if you do notice it, it is a conspiracy and you are a conspiracy nut. You are probably imagining things, you might as well be delusional, you are simply anti-Semitic, Xenophobic and Racist. If you directly quote Jews and use their own words to explain their agenda – that is simply pure anti-Semitism.
We might be laughing at this, but this is the reality we live in. These people are allowed to say these things because we live in Jewish operated nations, we live in Zionist Occupied Governments, we are not free, we do not have our own freedom within our own Nations. There is no way in hell a single white person may say stuff like that in the public. This alone means that there is no such a thing as “White privilege” or “White supremacy” – because if there were such a thing – then there simply would be no non-Whites who would be able to speak such stuff. There would be no Jews running Hollywood, all of our media, newspapers, TV stations, Politicians, the Senate, the European Union, the UN, the FED, all of the Banks, etc. We are enslaved. And our only current purpose in life is to remain silent slaves who are not to ever wake up from their enslavement. The Blacks, even though they don’t get it either, are also slaves of the Jews – up to this very day.
It wouldn’t be a Jewish run organization if there wasn’t violence involved in it. The point of course remains always the same : Make the gullible Goyim believe that the ideology or movement which the Jews have sold them is making them righteous, is somehow divine, is bringing about justice and truly makes them right about everything they do and say. The danger behind all of this is that there will always be a number of self-hating Whites who will join these Jewish ideologies. It happened with Christianity. It happened before. It will happen again, and it continues to happen. Let us give another simply analogy here : If the only Whites who care about preserving White people and their interests on this planet are labelled as “Racist”, then what are these non-Whites who are talking just and only about their own preservation and interests? But, White interests exist on their own, without the help of anyone else – whereas all these non-White interests entirely depend on the help and sacrifice of Whites, which this BLM leader further emphasizes in the last commandment :
White supremacy defined as simply any and all White interests, White nations, White neighborhoods, White farms, etc. If there are White people in it – you have to destroy it. This is the obsession of the 21st century – destroy any and all White groups. If there is a group which consists of only White people – it must be “diversified“. One could read this commandment as follows : Commit to two things : Fighting Heretics and Pagans where and how you can, and fund Christian and Church interests and their work. You get the same when you apply Democracy, Communism, Bolshevism, Liberalism, Feminism, or any other Jewish -ism. You can’t miss this pattern. You can’t miss this simple Truth and Realization.
To sum up the demands of the BLM leader : Give up everything you own Whitey. Give up your existence. Give it all to us for free and while we live for free and get everything for free, you should find a non-Racist, non-Supremacist, non-Privileged way to keep the society you created upright and running so that we may benefit from it for the coming generations. All this of course has nothing to do with our direct hatred of everything European, all this is not of course financed and led by our Jewish masters, this all is simply an act of Equality, Diversity, Liberty, Fraternity and Universal Brotherhood. It has nothing to do with White Genocide and the Extermination of your Race and People.
It is simply pay-back time for those 1% of White people who owned Black slaves during the Jewish slave trade era of America. The fact that 40% of Black slaves were owned by Jews and over 20+% of them by other Blacks, is irrelevant. Those 1% White people who had slaves are the representation of the rest of the 99% White people who had never any. It doesn’t matter that our own Black people sold us as Slaves to Jews, who then took them to the “New World” on Jewish ships and sold them at Jewish auction houses. It doesn’t matter that these same Jews were shipping White Europeans, especially the Irish, as Slaves into the New World as well – those are simply not important, these facts simply are not important, these facts simply do not exist.
We simply wish to take over your Nations, live for free, have a self-sustainable European futuristic society which will run without you. You should finance our cause which is cohen-cidently the death of everything you represent. You should not have children, sell everything you have, love your enemies, tolerate and not resist evil, you should look at your fellow Europeans as Heretics, just as in the old days you looked at those European Pagans as heretics who needed to be burned at the stake for refusing to submit to a Jewish invasive ideology. Your daughters and sons should race-mix, should avoid having White children – but, believe you me – all of this has nothing to do with White genocide. None of it. Nothing. It must be your imagination.
There is only one way this is going to end.
I’ve seen a lot of bullshit about hurricane Harvey saving America from a race war, that’s utter nonsense, anyone who believes that a weather phenomenon can change peoples minds and what they think of each other in the days and weeks after, is fooling themselves. The crack down on the internet is still on going, white people are still waking up in numbers we didn’t even believe was possible, blacks are still doing what blacks do, so its not over. This is just beginning, and war is still coming, whether you want to admit it or not, NONE of the problems in the west have been solved, as a matter of fact the billions spent on the Hurricane clean up will further destabilize the system. Early estimates place the cost of clean up and damages, to be $200 Billion dollars, and the economic effects to Texas and the surrounding region will be felt for years to come.
Do you remember what Hurricane Katrina did to New Orleans? Well, now we are watching the same thing happen to southeast Texas. On Friday, Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a category 4 hurricane. It is the first hurricane to make landfall in the United States in 12 years, and it is the most powerful storm to hit the state of Texas in at least 50 years. One meteorologist is saying that what we are witnessing is “worse than the worst-case scenario for Houston”, and another stated that this storm “could easily be one of the worst flooding disasters in U.S. history”. (Read More…)
It is now being estimated that the total amount of economic damage caused by Hurricane Harvey will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 190 billion dollars. It is a disaster unlike anything that we have ever seen before in all of U.S. history, and federal officials are already admitting that they are literally going to be dealing with the aftermath of this storm for “years”. At this point, more than 100,000 homes have been destroyed, “up to one million vehicles” have been ruined, and many retailers have already been caught engaging in extreme price gouging. But this could be just the beginning, because this storm has already rendered many areas along the Gulf coast “uninhabitable” for an extended period of time, and as you will see at the end of this article another hurricane may be arriving early next month.
What we just witnessed in Houston is being called “a 1,000-year-flood”, and many basic necessities are now in extremely short supply. So of course it was inevitable that this would lead to price gouging, and this is reportedly even happening at some of the largest retail chains. For example, at one Best Buy store cases of bottled water were being sold for 42 dollars…
On Friday, a Twitter user shared a picture of cases of bottled water being sold at a Best Buy in Houston. One of the cases was being sold for $42 when it normally retailed for about $15.
A Best Buy spokesman later apologized, saying it was a ‘big mistake’.
But that water was quite cheap compared to prices in other parts of the city. According to CNN, one convenience store in Houston was actually charging 20 dollars for a single gallon of gasoline and 99 dollars for a case of bottled water…
Texas officials say they’ve gotten hundreds of complaints about price gouging and scams in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
One convenience store in Houston reportedly charged $20 for a gallon of gas, $8.50 for a bottle of water and $99 for a case of water, according to the Texas Attorney General’s office.
The state has received 684 complaints in all, according to Kayleigh Lovvorn, a spokeswoman for the office.
It is inexcusable to take advantage of people during a crisis in this way. So many are running low on food, water and other basic supplies, and to try to make a quick profit by engaging in price gouging just isn’t right.
In the end, many people are going to have to leave Houston and never look back. To this day some parts of New Orleans still have not recovered from the devastation that Hurricane Katrina caused, and we are facing a similar scenario now with Houston. According to AccuWeather president Joel Myers, it will be “weeks and possibly months” before people can even get back into certain parts of Houston…
Hurricane Harvey could be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history with a potential price tag of $190 billion, according to a preliminary estimate from private weather firm AccuWeather.
This is equal to the combined cost of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, and represents a 1% economic hit to the gross national product, AccuWeather said.
“Parts of Houston, the United States’ fourth largest city, will be uninhabitable for weeks and possibly months due to water damage, mold, disease-ridden water and all that will follow this 1,000-year flood,” said AccuWeather president Joel Myers.
Large stretches of the 4th-largest city in the United States have been destroyed. Millions that were living comfortable middle class lives have now lost everything that they worked for. Large numbers of people did not have flood insurance, and so they will be leaning on the federal government for assistance. Many did have flood insurance, and a significant number of insurance companies may end up going bankrupt because of all the claims that will be suddenly pouring in. Houston was one of the most important hubs for economic activity in our entire nation, and the economic damage from this crisis will literally stretch on for years.
But despite everything that has happened, many are being very bitter and very cruel on social media and on the comments sections of major news websites. Apparently many on the left do not believe that compassion is appropriate because this storm hit a conservative state like Texas. Not everything has to be politicized, and it has greatly disturbed me to see just how cold many hearts in this nation have become.
And what is truly frightening is that another hurricane is potentially heading toward the Gulf of Mexico. It is still way too early to project exactly if it will make landfall or where, but it is being reported that Hurricane Irma has already become a category 3 storm…
Hurricane Irma continued its rapid power grab Thursday, with wind speeds increasing by more than 55 mph since Wednesday to become a major Cat 3 storm.
In their 5 p.m. advisory, National Hurricane Center forecasters said sustained winds had climbed to 115 mph as the storm headed to the west, northwest at 12 mph. Irma remains in the far east Atlantic, just over 1,700 miles east of the Leeward Islands. Up and down changes in intensity are possible over the next few days, forecasters said, but the storm is expected to remain a major hurricane that could become a Cat 4 storm in four days.
I am proud of how the Trump administration is handling this crisis, and when I win my race for Congress I look forward to working with Trump to make sure that our nation is always prepared to handle this sort of event.
And please keep praying for Houston, because if another major hurricane were to hit that area it would be a nightmare beyond anything that any of us would ever want to imagine.

Authorities are now telling us that Hurricane Harvey may end up causing more economic damage than even Hurricane Katrina did. We already knew that some parts of southeast Texas are going to be “uninhabitable for an extended period of time”, but the latest forecasts are calling for about 10 more inches of total rain than had previously been projected. At this moment 15 trillion gallons of water have already been dumped on Texas, and the rain continues to fall. You can get some idea of the devastation that has taken place in Houston by watching this drone footage. Essentially, some communities along the southeast Texas coastline have been totally destroyed.
It would be bad enough if 15 trillion gallons of water were dropped anywhere in the continental United States, but for it to happen in the Houston area makes it a disaster of unprecedented proportions. Houston is our fourth largest city, and that means that millions upon millions of people are being deeply affected by this storm. As I mentioned above, some experts now believe that this could end up being the most expensive natural disaster in our history…
Tropical Storm Harvey has dropped more than 15 trillion gallons of water on Texas, triggering catastrophic, unprecedented flooding in the Houston area. The rains have broken all-time records, exceeding the rainfall totals seen during Tropical Storm Allison in 2001.
There may be no parallel available to any other rainstorm in U.S. history, based on the number of people affected, amount of water involved, and other factors, meteorologists have warned.
Due to its wide geographic scope across America’s 4th-largest city, the ensuing flood disaster may rank as one of the most, if not the most, expensive natural disaster in U.S. history.
And 15 trillion gallons is just the current number. Meteorologists are forecasting that another 6 trillion gallons of water will fall on Texas before this storm is over.
Just yesterday, authorities were warning that some areas may see more than 40 inches of total rain, but now many forecasts are calling for “as much as 50 inches of rain” before Hurricane Harvey finally leaves Texas…
As the water rose, the National Weather Service issued another ominous forecast: Before the storm is gone, some parts of Houston and its suburbs could get as much as 50 inches of rain. That would be the highest amount ever recorded in Texas.
FEMA’s Long predicted that the aftermath of the storm would require FEMA’s involvement for years.
“This disaster’s going to be a landmark event,” Long said.
If these forecasts are accurate, the rainfall levels will exceed any previous record.
In fact, the amount of rain that has already fallen on southeast Texas would be enough to completely fill the Great Salt Lake in Utah, and then fill it all the way to the top again.
FEMA officials are already saying that they are going to be in the Houston area for “years”. Tens of thousands are already using temporary shelters, and it is being projected that 450,000 people will ultimately file for disaster assistance…
U.S. emergency management officials said on Monday they were expediting federal resources to Texas to help with rescue efforts after Hurricane Harvey swamped coastal areas of the state and forced 30,000 people to seek refuge in temporary shelters.
Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long said more than 450,000 people were expected to seek disaster assistance due to flooding after Harvey made landfall during the weekend before weakening to tropical storm status.
Of course whenever there is a disaster such as this, bad people are going to try to take advantage of the situation.
According to Houston police chief Art Acevedo, a number of looters have already been arrested…
Acevedo also said officers are focused on protecting the city from looters as floodwater recede.
“We’ve already arrested a handful of looters. We’ve made it real clear to our community we’re going to do whatever it takes to protect their homes and their businesses,” Acevedo said. “And when people come from the outside to Houston, Texas, know we’re going to be out in the city, we’re not going to rest as a police department or law enforcement community until people restore their lives.”
I am proud of how the Trump administration and the authorities down in Texas are responding to this unprecedented crisis. The loss of life appears to be minimal so far, and thousands of people have been rescued from their homes and vehicles.
We never give emergency responders the credit that they deserve. Day after day they are saving lives in the most difficult of situations, and I am so thankful for all of the wonderful people that are working so hard to help Houston pull through this.
Please keep the people of Houston in your prayers, because this is truly the worst crisis that city has ever seen.
