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.

In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

I promise: We're on it."

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.
