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.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

'Welcome to Anarchism, Glenn' | Michael Malice | Ep 121

Buckle up, this one is a wild ride. Author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and podcast host of "Your Welcome" Michael Malice wants to burn it all down, peacefully and with a smile. "My rights are NOT up for discussion," he tells Glenn. He explains why his version of America will save America. He and Glenn also discuss why corporate media is shrinking, why Boomers love Martin Luther King Jr., how Trump earned the spite vote, and why gun control is officially solved. But how does anarchism solve the China problem or potential nuclear threats? Somehow, he has the answer. He also tells Glenn how a concept like Blaze Media brought down the Soviet Union and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…
