  • Yes Cruz does not care about people

  • Stop whining! Start surviving! Texans were NOT PREPARED. Y'all prep for hurricanes and floods, but forgot about other possible disasters then want govt to bail you out? Having to pee in the toilet more than four times before you flush it is not a crisis situation. Take responsibility for your own survival! The longer you wait and wait on government aid and not handle it yourself somehow some way, you just die a little more everyday with disappointment in the processes. I am not without compassion, just live on my own, watch the weather, plan accordingly. And decisively know that if I don't do it, it don't get done.

  • We all know that HARP sent this weather in to the good people of Texas. But the wicked ones are falling down one by one. The same ones who sent in the storm Katrina .....order out of chaos. Wake up people. We are removing the lower vibrational entities of reptilian bloodlines and their advocates and bringing forth a heaven on Earth as intended. Trust and have faith that God always keeps a promise 🙏. Stay safe and protected and warm and know that you are loved unconditionally! Say no to vaccines that are not good. The wicked ones are trying desperately to introduce Artificial intelligence into your DNA. The children are being removed from the tunnels under the White house and the other tunnels around the world. From Vatican's leaders straight to the puppets on a witch hunt to try hide the truth from humanity for greed power and control. We are winning the good Lord's battle and removing the wicked bloodlines and their advocates from getting out of jail that have been using the money to traffic children and families and use them as sacrifices. Hollywood is falling. And the true stars are coming together and helping raise the vibrations of Mother Earth to remove the past lower vibrational entities that have not had the best interest of humananity at heart. #warroirsforlove,peace,lightandtruth and the truth shall set everyone free at last !

  • The scientists said we needed to upgrade our grid all the way back in 2001. They did do SOME stuff, but South Texas had 100+ hours under 20 F, the wind turbines froze up, and my bff and her dude had to come in and crash with me for multiple days because he's on home dialysis and while *I* never lost power they definitely did. (I'm in San Antonio, and basically mine stayed on because I'm about four long blocks from a power station and five from Lackland.)

  • I have been watching a lot about what's going on in Texas, and it just saddens me. My heart goes out to all those people. I do have one question, and please correct if I am wrong, it just really confused my friend and I. We were looking at the slideshow pictures in this video of the damage and flooding, from the younger gentlemans apartment and my friend noticed what we would assume is the date the picture was taken, now, I am NOT implying anything, we were just confused and curious and thought just ask rather than assume. Nevertheless, our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people being affected by this tragic crisis...

  • I will tell you what we all need. We need to be BORN AGAIN AND BAPTISED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. This is the only way to get saved. ....JOHN 3: 5 Jesus answered , Verily Verily, I say unto thee except a man be BORN of WATER AND OFF THE SPIRIT HE CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!!!!!You must save yourselves and your loved ones.Because all HELL will break loose When the RAPTURE happens and OUR LORD GOD ALMIGHTY take us to meet him in the clouds. The left behind on earth will suffer so much every second of the day and night, People will do what ever they want, as there will be no one to stop them. There will be no police to phone for help .It will be the survival of the fittest. Evil people will run rampaging . They will rape the children, and much worse.....I pray to my LORD GOD ALMIGHTY that I make it to heaven....( please GOD )...we have to help one another..............Yeah directed energy. can make these terrible weather conditions and all the fire that has been going on all over the world...Its those evil pricks that are causing so much devastating ...They are just continuing the depopulation agenda, They want the number of people in the world down to Five hundred million, as they...( The new world order and the Illuminati ) they reckon that amount of people will be easier to control......Its just to much.

California gov to they make laws to make money that is treason. They are in my opinion racist neo nazi kkk. This is to creat war. Fema will murder people. We need to stop them. The injections thos "shots" is code fore kill them. And they have shooters aka nazi gun squad. They giving them zombie shots to murder our people. Stop them!!!

  • Can someone tell me exactly what Cruz was supposed to do to keep people warm? My boss goes south for the winter and that's bad? We did without power or roads for 2 weeks last storm. Always looking to blame some one for anything, when there is not 1 thing he could do. That's what comes for depending on others for every thing , then when you're not ready to fend for yourselves and something happens, you can blame some one else. So why isn't Ted Cruz here helping me cut fire wood, shoveling snow, out getting food. Don't worry the government will help, maybe, probably best if you stay put and wait on them, though Biden hasn't done shit, but that's ok he's a Democrat, they get great praise for not doing shit.

Chris ! What about NY- MOTHER FKR ! How come you dont report on how bad off NY is because of YOUR BROTHER ! NY is like a BATTLE GROUND after WW2.

EVERY city should have a preparedness plan/project.

  • You probably think this information is harmless and informative but it's all a set up conversation. The electrical entities in Texas purposely outsourced their energy instead of easily producing their own at a cheaper cost. Unbelievable? Wake up! Who gave them the order? Biden! It's all a set up and they knew the weather would take this turn and were ready for it! Why? FEAR, CONTROL, NARRATIVE, PANIC! They have to have panic or segregation or confusion or distraction! If it seems like I'm conspiratorial you're probably asleep or willingly ignoring the world around you.
