Houston Chemical Fire Prompts “STAY INSIDE” Warning for Residents

Despite the obvious danger to the public, authorities waited until Thursday to warn residents.

The people of Houston, Texas are in trouble.

On Sunday, a massive chemical plant in the Texas city went up in smoke.  Alarmed social media users in The Lone Star State took to Twitter to share the harrowing images of a dark plume of who-knows-what smothering the sky over their homes.

Houston residents were told that there was no need to be concerned about possible health concerns, despite the noxious plume having spread far and wide.

Suddenly, and frighteningly, authorities have backtracked on that assessment, and are now warning residents to stay indoors.

National Guard troops have been called in and residents were told to stay inside after elevated levels of benzene were detected early Thursday near a Houston-area petrochemicals storage facility that caught fire this week.

Harris County officials said the Guard and hazardous materials teams have established perimeters around the Intercontinental Terminals Company in Deer Park, which is about 15 miles southeast of Houston.

The Texas Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday that benzene levels near the facility didn’t pose a health concern. But authorities issued a shelter-in-place order Thursday following “reports of action levels of benzene or other volatile organic compounds” within Deer Park, according to the city.

Several school districts also canceled classes for the day, citing “unfavorable air quality conditions.”

Residents near to the fire have reported a range of strange symptoms, including headaches and nosebleeds, according to local environmental groups.

REVEALED: McCain Family to Support Joe Biden In 2020, Hoping He Kicks Trump From Office

SERIOUSLY!?

Late Senator John McCain (AZ) is a war hero who served his country with honor for the vast majority of his life. By refusing to leave his fellow soldiers behind during the Vietnam war and enduring endless amounts of torture, McCain put his true character on display. While it is evident that McCain swung violently left on certain issues (even refusing to repeal Obamacare shortly after Donald Trump became president), every American owes him a debt of gratitude. Let’s be honest: Trump was entirely wrong when he said of McCain in 2015, “I like people who weren’t captured.” That was pretty bad. McCain and Trump never saw eye-to-eye, prompting the senator’s outspoken daughter, Meghan, to constantly attack POTUS in defense of her father. Now, it looks like the McCain family will support former Vice President Joe Biden over 45 come 2020. From Washington Examiner: The late Sen. John McCain’s family plans to support former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid, backing the Democrat not only in his party’s crowded primary race but also in a general election matchup with President Trump, the Washington Examiner has learned. In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him even after his death last August at age 81, the McCain family is preparing to break with the Republican Party. McCain represented the party in Congress for 35 years and was chosen as its presidential nominee in 2008, losing to Barack Obama. Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on “The View,” will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020. McCain apparently regretted choosing Sarah Palin as his…

Trump Makes Complete Fool of Ocasio-Cortez, AGREES With Her On One Very Key Issue

BULLSEYE!

Rookie lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) recently said about the Department of Veterans Affairs, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” What’s weird is that everyone seems to agree, for years now, that the VA is wildly broken. In a surprising twist, President Donald Trump actually agrees with AOC. Well, he agrees with her in his own way. LOOK: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is correct, the VA is not broken, it is doing great. But that is only because of the Trump Administration. We got Veterans Choice & Accountability passed. “President Trump deserves a lot of credit.” Dan Caldwell, Concerned Veterans of America https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1121095181690974208?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121095181690974208&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Ftrump-makes-shocking-announcement-agrees-with-ocasio-cortez%2F From Daily Caller: Trump touted a measure he signed in 2017 in the Wednesday tweet. The legislation fixed long-running accountability issues and ensured that incompetent individuals failing to adequately serve veterans did not remain on the VA payroll. Trump has repeatedly touted the measure, even using a famous catchphrase from his “The Apprentice” days. “It’s called VA accountability,” he said at a June 2018 rally in Minnesota. “Now, you bring the person into the office and you say, ‘Jim, I’m sorry to tell you, you are fired. Get out of here.’” Ocasio-Cortez’s poll numbers are in the garbage. In fact, she’s far less popular than President Trump…and even Hillary Clinton. It’s not hard to see why. AOC constantly finds a way to stick her foot in her mouth. What’s even sadder is that she routinely doubles down on her mistakes, which only serves to exacerbate the situation. During a recent town hall in her home disrict, Ocasio-Cortez (NY) was heckled. From New York Post: Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recalled how her public-school teachers thought she needed “remedial education” because she had grown up speaking Spanish at home. The freshman lawmaker, speaking Saturday at a packed town hall organized by…
