Local Friends Donate $3K in Supplies for Mega Shelter in Dallas

Multiple facilities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area have opened their doors as shelters in the wake of Hurricane Harvey's devastation. Thousands of people are expected to head north, seeking refuge for possibly months on end. Five thousand people alone are expected at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas within the coming days and weeks, with a similar number anticipated in Fort Worth and surrounding suburbs. The need for supplies will be huge --- and local schools, city governments and residents have stepped up to help their fellow Texans.

Supply drives, collection locations and transportation services have popped up all over the DFW metroplex. Social media has exploded with the efforts of local citizens to gather, sort and deliver essentials like food, clothing, diapers and cribs. One such story took place in the centrally-located suburb of Keller.

On Monday, Leslie Horn rallied about 50 friends on social media to donate via Venmo and PayPal.

"I'm heading to Walmart today to pick up supplies for donations to one of the soon-to-open mega shelters in Dallas. If anyone wants to contribute...you can Venmo or PayPal me," Horn posted on Instagram.

Although Horn actively volunteers in the community, this time the mission was personal --- she and her family lived in Houston for many years.

"My own neighbors and friends were suffering, and I had to do something. I couldn't just watch the news and feel that helpless anymore," Horn said.

The response to her request was immediate and overwhelming, with donations climbing to $3,000.

The "Keller Mom Brigade," as Horn dubbed her group, blossomed into 10 women and five SUVs. Within a few hours, they collected shopping carts full of toiletries, socks, underwear, diapers, wipes, formula, clothing, non-perishable food items and portable cribs. Thanks to generous discounts and coupons offered at local stores like Walmart and Target, their dollars went farther than expected.

"❤️❤️ People are good," Horn posted.

The group delivered their haul to the Greater Keller Chamber of Commerce where it was transferred, along with donations from other locals, to mega shelters in Dallas, awaiting evacuees as they arrive.

Horn posted a final thanks to friends, including a message of hope.

"Thank you to everyone who donated to our little collection we started yesterday! It grew to $3000!! This is going to be a very long road for literally millions of our fellow Texans, but based on what I saw here today, I believe that every single last one of them will be taken care of. People are incredible. ...We got hugs and teary-eyed thank yous everywhere we went. People want to help so much," Horn posted. "More to come, Houston friends! We are ready to help."

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
