When You See Who’s Managing Panama City, Florida in Devastating Wake of Hurricane Michael, Your Heart Will Swell With Pride

If Captain America were real, he’d be this guy.

Panama City, Florida was absolutely devastated by Hurricane Michael, a category four storm that left a wide path of destruction all over the city. Almost all of the city’s water, sewer, electric and cell services were wiped out. No doubt when this horrific natural disaster unfolded, many folks wondered who was going to step up and help them rebuild. Who would get their city back on track?

Well, it seems the citizens of Panama City are in good hands.

Maj. Gen. Mark McQueen just recently retired from the Army, having served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and has now started his job as city manager.

Despite McQueen having no municipal experience and having been on the job only two weeks, city leaders said the two-star general is exactly the man they need for the long recovery ahead.

“I believe the Lord sent him,” Panama City Commissioner Billy Rader said. “God knew this was going to happen before we did.”

McQueen, 58, was a rare choice when commissioners picked him out of a candidate pool of 80 people, and not just because his experience was from the military.

When McQueen accepted the job six months ago, he asked the commission for a grace period to wrap up his military service and end his a civilian job as a church’s business administrator. There was another pressing matter, too.

“There was a gentleman who needed a kidney,” he said casually.

Yes, you’re reading that correctly. McQueen not only retired from the military, started a brand spanking new job, and organized one of the largest hurricane responses since Katrina, but he also saved a man’s life — a stranger — by donating his kidney.

If Captain America were real, it seems highly likely he’d be Mark McQueen.

“What am I going to do for the second half of the game, the game of my life to contribute, to give back, to secure victory, to get the win?” he told the Panama City News Herald. “I want to commit myself to that life of continuing to be a service leader, to being one who is giving back to the community. I am standing before you today not only because of the great opportunities I have had in my civilian career but also my military, and I was able to have that military career right here in Panama City and become a senior leader in the United States Army because of the investment this community made in me. It’s my time to give back to this community.”

We’re at a time in our nation where true blue American heroes are in extremely short supply, which is what makes McQueen’s actions so important. We need to spread this story around, show people there’s still good in the world, right here in our own backyards.

Once again, “Project Veritas” continues to prove that it is one of the only reliable investigative arms in the media world. They expose the truth. Now that liberals have completely infiltrated Hollywood, big tech, the mainstream media and the education system, it is imperative that “Project Veritas” remains alive and well and free to operate. James O’Keefe’s outlet has, again, exposed CNN for the anti-Trump goons they really are.

Details: Minneapolis City Council Is Attempting to Defund the Police With $8 Million Cut

How ridiculous!

It takes a special kind of (insert own curse word here) to call for defunding police departments. You have to be incredibly politically challenged to think doing so is a good thing. We know, beyond any reasonable doubt, that less police presence equals higher crime rates. Fact. But that’s how the left likes to live: backward. From The Daily Wire: The Minneapolis City Council is trying again to defund the Minneapolis Police Department, after an initial effort to eliminate the city’s existing law enforcement apparatus and replace it with a “community-oriented” solution failed. Minneapolis’ CBS affiliate reports that three members of the Minneapolis City Council, all of whom supported a drastic plan to defund and disband the city’s police department following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, are offering a “follow-up” solution that involves slashing the police budget and drastically cutting the number of MPD officers. CONTINUED: “Minneapolis City Council Member Phillipe Cunningham saw the mass protests following George Floyd’s death in late May as an imperative for something new,” the outlet reported Tuesday. “He and council colleagues Lisa Bender and Steve Fletcher have co-written a budget plan that proposes moving about $8 million out of the police department. For context, the current budget allocated nearly $200 million to MPD.” Bender is the force behind the City Council’s initial effort to defund and disband the police, and famously told interviewers, over the summer, that fears about a rising crime rate were evidence of “privilege.” Liberals need help. If they don’t get it, the entire nation will continue on a downward trajectory.
