Mercury One Partners With 6 Organizations to Help Victims of Harvey

Suzanne Grishman, Executive Director of Mercury One, joined the panel on today’s Think Tank to discuss how Mercury One is saving lives and aiding various organizations throughout southeast Texas to help those affected by Tropical Storm Harvey.

Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane on Friday before weakening to a tropical storm. Mercury One and its partners began preparations to assist with humanitarian aid as early as last week.

The storm left areas devastated including Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Houston, Louisiana, and the Gulf Coast as it dumped catastrophic amounts of rain while the storm stalled killing at least eight people. Businesses, homes, and freeways have been destroyed, and many are estimating it could be years before the areas affected return to normal.

Mercury One’s partners on the ground include Operation BBQ Relief, Team Rubicon, CitiImpact, Somebody Cares, Gleaning for the World, and The Provisions Project.

Operation BBQ Relief will be feeding first responders and those affected by the storm and need volunteers and donations.

Team Rubicon, an organization made up of veterans, deployed Monday with boats to assist those trapped in flood waters.

CitiImpact will be assisting with food, water, and basic needs and necessities needed by flood victims.  This organization was originally setup in a church by the bayou in Houston. However, due to flooding, they are now moving to a new location to assist with disaster relief.

Somebody Cares and Gleaning for the World are setup on the ground also providing food, water, blankets, hygiene, and supplies in Rockport.

The Provisions Project, who is supporting the Cajun Navy, is also deploying trucks of supplies, food, and water.

The Texas National Guard has been deployed, all airports are closed, hospitals and news stations are flooded, and rescue efforts are currently underway.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
