Texas Bills Threaten to Strip ‘Texans’ Right to Practice Biblical Teachings’

Some conservatives are worried that the liberal Left and some upcoming Texas state bills may try “to ban Christianity in Texas.”

Erick Erickson, a conservative blogger and radio host, writes in The Resurgentthat some half a dozen bills will ban Christianity “in all but name.”

This continues a long line of thought first advocated by the Obama Administration, which sought to restrict the ‘free exercise’ clause of the First Amendment to a ‘freedom of worship’ standard. In other words, be a Christian in church on Sunday, but nowhere else,” he says.

“Christianity is not a religion of the church pew, but of the town square. Texas progressives are trying to ban it from anywhere outside the church,” he added in his column.

Erickson was referring to Texas bills, including HB 224, HB 254, HB 850 and SB 151, all which would prohibit the discrimination of sexual orientation or gender identity by businesses, including Christian-owned ones. Previously, Christian businesses have claimed they have the right to refuse service based on their religious beliefs.

Two other bills are also being considered. HB 517 would require Christian counselors to affirm transgenderism and SB 154 would force doctors to create birth certificates retroactively for patients who gender transition.

Dave Welch, president of the Texas Pastors Council, also said the bills could mean less rights for Christians.

“The mad dash by some Democrat House and Senate members to push false narratives that sexual behavior is the same as skin color and that mental illness deserves the same honored status as religious belief is ominous evidence that the criminalization of religious faith and common sense are on the horizon,” he said.

Texas Values, a state conservative advocacy group, has also mounted a campaign to show that the house bill #BanTheBible.

“#BanTheBible doesn’t have to mean confiscating physical Bibles yet,” the group said in a statement, “but it does mean something even worse — stripping Texans’ right to practice biblical teachings out of their lives.” (Click to Source)

Is the UN Planning to Occupy the US Following an EMP Attack?

un-war-vehicle-768x432

Mike Adams recently wrote an article in which he reported what is now sinking in with the rest of the media, namely, North Korea has a hydrogen bomb and advanced EMP weapons. Allow this to serve as a backdrop for the following article, which makes the case that the UN is operating on US soil, in places like Rawlins, Wyoming and Hagerstown, Maryland, and they are prepared to survive an EMP attack prior to asserting their authority over the people of the United States.

The United Nations Personnel and Vehicles Are Seemingly Everywhere

The United Nations is clearly on the move across the United. I am getting reports and photos from Georgia, Alabama and Texas. However, the most interesting photos are coming out Rawlins, Wyoming and Hagerstown, Maryland.

Rawlins, Wyoming: UN Command and Control with EMP Proof Communications

Over the past 18 months, the small town of Rawlins, Wyoming has come to my attention because of its intimate association with DHS and the UN. Further, this small town of under 10,ooo people has played host to some very large scale bioweapon response drills as well as testing the efficacy of the Federal authorities to be able to respond to a terrorist chemical attack.

I have taken the following photos to military personnel who tell me this is an United Nations operation. The particular equipment you are looking at is designed to operate and persevere through an EMP attack. Most recently, Paul Martin and myself have received an identical communication from the Rawlins area. Please take note the following photos: (Click to Site)

Hurricane Harvey Disaster for America, Fuel Prices, Economy Sinking into Recession

1a-2-300x218

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 299 9.1.17)

Hurricane Harvey has ravaged Texas and Louisiana, but losses will spread across the United States. Everyone will feel the impact in some way.  Hurricane Katrina losses totaled $175 billion, and Harvey could be twice that or more.  (Texas Rep. Pete Sessions: Harvey Impact Could Reach $1 Trillion.)  Oil prices will spike, and banks and insurance companies, ultimately, will face big losses on flooded housed and vehicles.

At least 25% of refinery capacity has been shut down by Hurricane Harvey. Experts say that this will cause fuel and petroleum product prices to spike.  How high will prices go?  Will there be shortages?  It will take weeks and months to find this out, but higher prices are locked in now.

The latest figures from ShadowStats.com are out, and economist John Williams says it looks like a recession is “imminent or one is already underway.” (Click to Site)

Two explosions at flooded Texas chemical plant: Fifteen police officers hospitalized after blast at facility that will get MORE dangerous as the water rises

  • Two explosions were heard at the Arkema Inc plant in Crosby, Texas, early Thursday morning
  • The chemical plant lost power and backup generators amid storm Harvey’s deluge
  • It left the plant without refrigeration for its organic peroxides, which will burn as temperatures rise
  • The company said there is six feet of water at the plant and they have lost critical refrigeration of the materials
  • Plant officials warned that more explosions could occur and said they would let the fire burn itself out 
  • Arkema manufactures organic peroxides, compounds used in pharmaceuticals and construction materials
  • The company shut down the Crosby site before Harvey made landfall last week
  • Local officials established a 1.5 mile evacuation zone around the plant on Tuesday after it lost power  
  • Meanwhile, about 150 miles west of Houston, almost 30,000 gallons of crude oil and about 8,500 gallons of wastewater spilled because floodwaters from Harvey toppled two oil storage tanks

Two explosions have rocked a flooded chemical plant outside of Houston just hours after the company warned a gas explosion was imminent.

Despite 30 to 40 foot flames and black smoke spewing from The Arkema Inc plant in Crosby, local officials have insisted the explosions produced no toxins and said the community was not in danger.

Fifteen police officers were hospitalized as a precaution after being affected by the smoke following the explosion just before 1am on Thursday. Some of the officers complained of dizziness and headaches.

The explosions came after The Arkema Inc plant lost power and backup generators in the wake of Harvey’s days-long deluge. It left the plant without refrigeration for chemicals that will burn as temperatures rise.

The Harris County Emergency Operations Center reported the explosions at the plant and about 40-feet of black smoke rising from the facility in the early hours of Thursday morning.

At a news conference in Washington DC on Thursday, FEMA administrator Brock Long said he considered plumes from the explosion ‘incredibly dangerous.’

Local officials refused to refer to the incident as ‘explosions’ and instead called them a series of ‘pops’ and ‘chemical reactions’.

Arkema have warned that more explosions could take place in the coming hours or days and urged residents not to return to the area until it has been cleared. (Click to Site)

It looks like Harvey might end up in Carbondale, X marks the spot, “Little Egypt”. According to NOAA (pronounced “NOAH”), this deluge will extend northward with its furthest reach encompassing the X marks the spot location of the two eclipses. Probably nothing, just a mammoth coincidence. Coastal Watches/Warnings and Forecast Cone for Storm Center

Hurricane Harvey prepper update: Sh#t just hit the fan in South Texas… non-preppers hurting badly as food, water, power and emergency services FAIL

hurricane-harvey-texas-mike-adams3

(Natural News) News from inside Hurricane Harvey:

Local towns are experiencing so much flooding that some are cutting off municipal water supplies.

This is on top of the power grid outages, cell phone outages, store closures and widespread road closures that have taken place here in the last 12 hours.

For the time being, everyone is on their own, with little available outside help. I’ve seen tweets of people pleading to be rescued as their homes flood, and those are the lucky ones who still have bandwidth access. Many people are completely cut off with no services at all: No electricity, no municipal water, no 911 response services, etc. As much as I want to help these people, I can’t even get to them (and neither can anyone else).

Hurricane Harvey is a strong reminder that prepping is the best insurance you can buy. While surrounding areas had no power, I cranked up my John Deere tractor with a PTO generator, providing power to my entire property for the cost of about two gallons of diesel per hour. This tractor-generator setup is virtually EMP-proof as long as you’re using an older tractor, like the one shown below. I call it the “ultimate backup generator” arrangement, and it’s mobile by design (photo courtesy of Steambrite.com) (Click to Site)

Nuclear Worker: “Imminent flood coming” near nuke plant from Hurricane Harvey… “Potentially catastrophic”… Running out of food… Working tirelessly to manage problems… Area turned “upside down” — Nearby river forecast to rise 50 ft and overtop levees, “Major Flood Stage”

Toronto Star, Aug 27, 2017 (emphasis added): Canadian engineer Raihan Khondker said his family safely left their home in southeastern Texas, but he was forced to return to the Bay City area as part of a support team at a nuclear power plant. For three days, Khondker, who is from Toronto, has been working tirelessly to manage “one thing after another,” driving through water-choked streets to bring supplies to engineers at the plant who are running out of food. Khondker said houses in his neighbourhood have been turned “upside down,” and rising waters in a nearby river threatens to send a potentially catastrophic flood into the area. “Every single creek in the neighbourhood is full,” he said. “There is an imminent flood coming to Bay City, we just don’t know how much water we are going to see.”

Bay City Tribune, Aug 27, 2017: National Weather Service: Rainfall predictions for Matagorda County… Total county precipitation estimated through Friday, Sept. 1 will be 15 to 25 inches. Possible “unprecedented” rainfall through Friday. Catastrophic flooding is ongoing with flash flood emergencies remaining in effect. The threat for continued additional catastrophic, unprecedented, and life threatening flooding continues today and into next week… Harvey is drifting southeast towards Matagorda Bay… Tornado threat continues with rain bands coming onshore and moving inland.

In Four Hours, Houston Supermarkets were totally SOLD OUT; Those who didn’t get food – CAN’T – – – – Will this be YOU when the Economic Collapse or Civil War Happens?

Are You Prepared for Any Kind of Disaster? The people in Houston weren’t.

 Hal Turner Commentary: “The masses are asses”  is a quote attributed to Alexander Hamilton.  He was speaking about majority voting versus an Electoral College, but the sentiment was evident in Texas over the past 48 hours.  Despite days and days of warning, people waited to the last minute to do what they NEEDED so as to survive the inbound Hurricane.  The day before Hurricane Harvey struck, in FOUR HOURS, supermarkets sold out of water and most food.  Those who got, got.  Those who didn’t . . . .

Now, a Hurricane comes with warning, but the masses waited.  What if what’s coming arrives WITHOUT WARNING?  What if it’s an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) attack by a rogue country like North Korea, wiping out all electronics and Bank records?  What if it’s an earthquake?  A Tsunami?  Civil War? Here’s a likely one:  What if it’s economic collapse?  All the Credit and Debit Cards stop working because the banks have gone under.  ATM’s don’t work and Bank Branches get locked because panicked people are taking out all their cash.

What will YOU do in any events like that?  How will YOU eat?  Where will YOU get water?  How will YOUR FAMILY survive?  If you’re one of the “asses” you won’t think about any of that until it’s too late.  Here’s how NOT to be an ass . . .

Hurricane Harvey results in at least one death, up to 14 injuries

latest

Authorities in Texas confirmed Saturday that at least one person was killed as a result of Hurricane Harvey and up to 14 people were injured.

Charles Wax, mayor of the coastal city of Rockport, said one person died in a house fire as the hurricane came ashore Friday night. Aransas County Judge C.H. “Burt” Mills Jr. told the Austin American-Statesman that 12 to 14 other people were injured.

“It’s pretty sickening,” Mills told the paper. “Lots of emotions are involved when you see your community destroyed like this, but we’ll bounce back.”

Harvey came ashore as a Category 4 hurricane about 30 miles northeast of Corpus Christi, packing winds of 130 miles per hour. It weakened overnight to a Category 1 and then to a tropical storm. By early Saturday afternoon, the storm’s maximum sustained winds had fallen to about 70 mph, and the storm was centered about 60 miles southeast of San Antonio. It was moving north at 2 mph, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said.

By dawn, nearly 300,000 consumers were without power in the coastal region, and nearly 20 inches  of rain had fallen in some places. (Click to Site)
