Houston Hospital Chief of Medical Staff Successfully Used Ivermectin to Treat COVID Patients

KTRK news, known as ABC13 in Houston, Texas is reporting some local doctors have been successfully using Ivermectin to help treat their COVID-19 patients since last year.

According to the report, “Dr. Joseph Varon, chief of medical staff, said he has proudly been using it, off-label, to treat thousands of COVID-19 patients admitted to United Memorial Medical Center.”

Dr. Varon

“I have used Ivermectin in a few thousand patients,” Varon said. “I cannot tell you the exact number, but I know that it’s been quite a large number of patients and I have not seen a single significant side-effect. Not one.”

“He and his colleagues began touting the drug last December, holding a press conference to implore the medical community to use it as part of COVID-19 treatment,” ABC13 reported.

Varon told ABC13 that his team began using the drug last summer, saying “people were dying.”

“We were in the middle of a pandemic,” he said. “You have to try things. You have no choice.”

For cattle and swine.

He said based on his data, Ivermectin, in combination with COVID therapies, saves lives.

“It’s not just Ivermectin,” he said. “That’s where people get confused. Ivermectin helps you, but it helps you when you are giving it in addition to other components of treatment protocols that are out there.”

Ivermectin was developed to treat parasites in both humans and animals.

Ivermectin is an FDA-approved drug developed to treat parasites in both humans and animals at a very specific dose.

“But a recent surge on animal feed stores, where the drug is sold as a de-wormer for cows and horses, has the FDA sending out a warning, saying Ivermectin should not be used to treat or prevent coronavirus,” the report warned. “It is not approved for that use.”

Houston-area specialty pet store owners indicate they are running out of the product.

One Bandera, Texas rancher informed CleverJourneys that,”We have some cut up into small pieces to use just in case one of us gets it. We have a friend who swears it helped him last spring.”

The animal version of the drug, according to the FDA, is different than the human version, saying in part, “animal drugs are often highly concentrated because they are used for large animals like horses and cows, which can weigh a lot more than we do-a ton or more. Such high doses can be highly toxic in humans.”

Current News Mainstream Media Didn’t Inform Us About

Why did news outlets ignore these?

🔹When the caskets of the fallen marines arrived back in the United States from Afghanistan, no one from the Biden administration bothered to show up to honor or greet them.

Update: Sources on the ground in Dover indicate at the last minute, the plane transferring the caskets was delayed because Joe and Jill Biden were persuaded to go after all on Sunday. The current White House residents needed to be there first to greet the plane.

Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has choice words for the Biden tragedy.

“In many ways, I think of John Kennedy and the Bay of Pigs, you know?” Panetta said. “It unfolded quickly and the president thought that everything would be fine and that was not the case. But President Kennedy took responsibility for what took place. I strongly recommend to President Biden that he take responsibility and admit the mistakes that were made.”

🔹Dominion lost their lawsuits against Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell.

🔹43,907 absentee votes counted in DeKalb County for 2020 presidential election out of the 61,731 deposited in drop boxes violated the lawful chain of custody rule. If all news outlets would investigate according to the caliber that the Georgia Star News does, President Trump would likely be in the White House making America great again.

🔹Germany, Denmark, Ecuador, Singapore, Italy, France, Spain and others are backing down on vaccine mandates or suspending use of some  vaccines.

🔹The chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, Haruo Ozaki, held a press conference last week announcing that the anti-parasite medicine Ivermectin seems to be effective at stopping COVID-19 and publicly recommending that all doctors in Japan immediately begin using Ivermectin to treat COVID. India recommends it.

🔹The creator of the PCR test, the inventor of mRNA technology and the former chief scientist at Pfizer are all screaming at people to stay away from the vaccine.

🔹A major analysis relying on the database of Maccabi Healthcare Services (which enrolls about 2.5 million Israelis) was barely mentioned by most news outlets.

The study, led by Tal Patalon and Sivan Gazit at KSM, the system’s research and innovation arm, found in two analyses that people who were vaccinated in January and February were, in June, July, and the first half of August, six to 13 times more likely to get infected than unvaccinated people who were previously infected with the coronavirus.

In one analysis, comparing more than 32,000 people in the health system, the risk of developing symptomatic COVID-19 was 27 times higher among the vaccinated, and the risk of hospitalization eight times higher.

🔹Ballotpedia’s analysis of rejection rates in last year’s general election determined that 0.8% of the 70,550,699 absentee/mail-in ballots cast were rejected.

By comparison, 1.4% of the 30.4 million absentee/mail-in ballots cast in 2018 were rejected.

1.0% of 33.4 million such ballots were rejected in 2016.

Their analysis of turnout and absentee/mail-in data is based on the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s (EAC) annual “Election Administration and Voting Survey” and state-level data.

🔹Over the next year or so, 59% of voters say it is at least somewhat likely that there will be a major terrorist attack in the United States. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 22% consider it unlikely, and 19% are not sure.

Those figures include 26% who consider an attack very likely and 4% who say an attack is not at all likely.

Seventy percent (70%) of Republicans worry that such an attack might happen. 52% of Democrats and 51% of independents report the same.[1]

Texas Hospitals Require Over 8,000 Contract Workers to Replace Those Laid Off From COVID Mandates & Surges

Hospitals in Texas are being aided by more than 8,000 contract workers who’ve been tapped by the state to help short-staffed units facing a surge of patients and fill in vacancies caused by hospitals terminating staff choosing not to get experimental COVID-19 jabs.

The extra staff will help hospitals relieve some front-line workers from grueling workloads as well as expand capacity in a state that’s nearing its winter record for hospitalizations.

Some Texas hospitals have been stepping up their recruiting efforts to compensate for their loss of personnel due to mandates to force employees to take the jabs. It’s backfiring.

Originally, 5,600 medical personnel, made up of mostly nurses and respiratory therapists, were going to aid Texas. However, that number was recently bumped up to 8,100, according to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s office. 

“This operation follows the Governor’s directive on August 9th that DSHS utilize staffing agencies to provide out-of-state medical personnel to Texas health care facilities to mitigate the surge of COVID-19 cases in Texas,” a press release indicated. “The additional deployment of personnel will be fully funded by the state through September 30.”

At the height of the state’s winter surge, nearly 14,000 additional healthcare workers were sent to Texas.

Hurricane Ida 2nd Only to Katrina in Intensity for Louisiana

Hurricane Ida is now the second most intense hurricane to strike the state of Louisiana on record, only behind Hurricane Katrina.

Ida’s strength tied for the strongest landfall in the state by maximum winds with Hurricane Laura in 2020 and the historical 1856 Last Island hurricane.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said that the damage is “catastrophic,” and the death toll would go up “considerably.”

“The damage is really catastrophic,” Bel Edwards told NBC on Monday morning. “This storm packed a very powerful punch. It delivered the surge that was forecasted, the wind that was forecasted, and the rain.”

As it approached and made landfall on the Louisiana coast, Ida reached its peak intensity with winds of 150 mph and a minimum central barometric pressure of 929 mbar.

“Well, we have one confirmed death. I don’t want to tell you what I’m hearing, because what I’m hearing points to a lot more than that. They’re not yet confirmed, and I really don’t want to go there,” Bel Edwards said. “I’m certain that as the day goes on, we will have more deaths.”

An Ascension Parish man was killed when a tree fell on his home.

Nearly 600,000 people in New Orleans urban area lost power, and 400,000 more in the wider Louisiana region with a total of more than one million out.

The French Quarter in New Orleans experienced severe damage including destroyed roofs and building collapses. The historic Karnofsky Shop collapsed.

Severe damage was recorded across the coastal areas of Louisiana, including in New Orleans, Golden Meadow, Houma, Galliano, LaPlace, and Grand Isle. 

An emergency flood warning was issued for Braithwaite when one of the levees was overtopped.

In Houma, whiteout conditions were recorded, with flying debris and many houses damaged or destroyed. 

Many homes were destroyed in Galliano, with many trees uprooted, cars overturned and power lines brought down. The Lady of the Sea General Hospital in Galliano was damaged, losing a significant amount of the roof.

One of the ferries used on the Lower Algiers-Chalmette route across the Mississippi River broke free of its mooring during the hurricane, drifted up the river, and then ran aground.

A section of the Gulf Outlet Dam was overtopped by the storm surge. 

The Mississippi River was decided near Belle Chase flowing in reverse due to the volume of the surge. The St. Stephen Catholic School in New Orleans lost its roof.

An anemometer in Port Fourchon recorded a gust of 172 mph when Ida came ashore.

Major damage was reported in Jefferson Parish, where nearly every home reported missing or destroyed roofs. A major power transformer tower in was twisted and destroyed, leading to widespread blackouts. 

Four hospitals in the state were damaged, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

Ida was downgraded to a tropical storm Monday morning.

How CDC Omitted Data and Misrepresented Facts Reports to OK Vaccines for Teens

Remember when mainstream media downplayed voter fraud after the 2020 Presidential Election by using the buzz phrase “with no evidence” anytime President Trump made a statement?

This media manipulation season’s new buzz phrase is “vaccines benefits outweigh its risks.”

The obvious problem with these buzz phrases is that they are propaganda and opinion, not facts. The “data” or “news” used to make such statements are tainted.

Today, most Americans realize Donald Trump did an extraordinary job of running the country with the media trying to destroy him every day than Biden does with the media largely propping him up with excuses for his destructive administration. Biden, at his best, follows a script.

In a study published July 30, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledged nearly 400 reports of children between the ages of 12 and 17 who experienced heart inflammation after receiving the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.

The CDC study also included 14 reports of deaths after vaccination in teens. Among those who died, four were between the ages of 12 and 15, and 10 occurred in 16- to 17-year-olds.

Deaths reviewed by the CDC included two reports of pulmonary embolism, two suicides, two intracranial hemorrhages, one report of heart failure and one rare blood disorder.

Overall results for 12- to 17-year-olds

Overall, the CDC study reviewed adverse events among 12- to-17-year-olds reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) between Dec. 14, 2020, and July 16, 2021. VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.

The FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer vaccine for children 16 years and older on Dec. 11, 2020. The FDA expanded the authorization to children 12 and over on May 10.

For the life of me, I can’t understand why more Americans are allowing these jabs for their children. They blindly follow the lying media. Just turn them off!

The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (marketed under the Janssen brand) vaccines are authorized for emergency use only in people age 18 or older.

According to the CDC study, as of July 16, about 8.9 million U.S. adolescents aged 12-17 years had received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. VAERS received 9,246 reports after Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination in this age group — 90.7% of these were for non-serious adverse events and 9.3% were for serious adverse events, including myocarditis (4.3% or 397 reports).

Controlled by the CDC

The CDC also reviewed adverse events for the 12 – to 17-year-old age group reported during the same timeframe to V-safe, a smartphone-based safety surveillance system controlled by the CDC and private partners.

According to the study, 129,000 U.S. adolescents aged 12-17 years enrolled in V-safe after Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination. They reported local (63.4%) and systemic (48.9%) reactions with a frequency similar to that reported in preauthorization clinical trials. Systemic reactions were more common after dose two.

The study stated that a small number of V-safe participants reported they were hospitalized after vaccination, however, V-safe does not record a reason for hospitalization, and it cannot be determined whether hospitalization was related to vaccination. Though run by the CDC, V-safe data is not accessible by the public.

Many physicians and other public commenters accused the CDC of exaggerating a low risk to young people of COVID, and minimizing the risk of the vaccines with the help from the Advisory Committee of Immunization Practices (ACIP) and a very public presentation aided my mainstream media.

Significant Flaws

Dr. Meryl Nass, an internal medicine physician, pointed out several flaws in the data used during the ACIP’s presentation:

🔹“As of now, two major ways the rate of myocarditis were minimized was to lump people from age 39 and down –– even though the highest rates [of myocarditis] are in the youngest kids. This waters down the rate.”

🔹”The other method was to only include a very narrow window of time after vaccinations started in the 12-15 age group, thus omitting the vast majority of second doses, which is when about 75% or more of the myocarditis cases occur. Also, the genders were sometimes mixed. And rates in girls are much lower than boys.”

During the presentation, Dr. Megan Wallace stated the overall efficacy of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine in the 12 to 15 age group is 100% and Moderna’s was comparable. Wallace then did a risk/benefit analysis comparing myocarditis cases versus hospitalization rates for COVID in people between the ages of 12 and 29.

“The problem with her analysis is that now the myocarditis rate used is too low. But the risk from COVID is magnified,” Nass said.

🔹Nass further questioned why the ACIP did not include any of the almost 6,000 deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in the risk pool when determining risk and benefits.

The ACIP did admit there is a “likely association” of “mild” heart inflammation in adolescents and young adults after vaccination with an mRNA COVID vaccine and a warning statement was warranted.

According to a report by the COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Technical (VaST) Work Group, the risk of myocarditis or pericarditis following vaccination with the mRNA-based shots in adolescents and young adults is notably higher after the second dose and in males.

“Clinical presentation of myocarditis cases following vaccination has been distinct, occurring most often within one week after dose two, with chest pain as the most common presentation,” said Dr. Grace Lee, co-chair of VaST.

Officials at FDA followed up warning of a rare but serious neurological disorder linked to Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine.

Temporarily paused.

Since then, over 150 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome have been reported among people who received J&J’s vaccine. The FDA then changed its fact sheets on the vaccine for providers and patients.

Guillain-Barré syndrome

“Reports of GBS after receipt of the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) are rare, but do likely indicate a small possible risk of this side effect following this vaccine,” the CDC noted recently. “These cases have largely been reported about two weeks after vaccination and mostly in males, many aged 50 years and older.”

The FDA said 95 percent of cases were hospitalized, and at least one person died. Supportive care is generally recommended for any case of GBS, as patients are at risk of developing neuromuscular respiratory failure, and requiring a ventilator.

Some of the first symptoms of the syndrome can include a tingling in the feet or hands. Others include difficulty swallowing, speaking, chewing, seeing, or facial paralysis.

The muscle weakness prompted by GBS can often make it difficult to walk or climb stairs, a tell-tale sign many people use to know to seek care, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Blood Clotting

In April, US health officials halted use of the J&J vaccine after more than a dozen people – mostly women under the age of 50 – developed a rare type of blood clot after getting the shot.

Three of the cases were fatal, showed data shared by the CDC at the time.

Regulators allowed vaccine distribution to resume on April 23, with a new warning attached.

The cause of Guillain-Barré isn’t fully understood. A 1976 version of the flu vaccine, developed to fight a potential pandemic strain of influenza, was linked to a slightly higher risk of developing GBS.

Most common reactions related to myocarditis

CDC did admit that in the 12- to-17-year-old group there was heart inflammation and the most commonly reported serious adverse events in that age group included chest pain, increased troponin levels, myocarditis, increased c-reactive protein and negative SARS-CoV-2 test results.

Fauci with Gates

According to the CDC, the findings were consistent with a diagnosis of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle that can lead to cardiac arrhythmia and death.

🔹According to researchers at the National Organization for Rare Disorders, myocarditis can result from infections, but “more commonly the myocarditis is a result of the body’s immune reaction to the initial heart damage.”

🔹According to Mayo Clinic, severe myocarditis can permanently damage your heart muscle possibly causing heart failure.

The CDC’s Hause said the study was subject to several limitations, including:

  • VAERS is a passive surveillance system and is subject to under-reporting and reporting bias.
  • Documentation might be delayed or unavailable for medical review.
  • A lack of statistical safety signal in planned monitoring does not preclude a safety concern.
  • The study was not designed to identify all cases of myocarditis –– only those reports that listed the MedDRA term “myocarditis” were included.

The study also noted that V-safe is a voluntary self-enrollment program that requires children older than 15 be enrolled by a parent or guardian and might not be generalizable to the overall vaccinated adolescent population.

Eric Clapton, People’s Hero, Releases ‘This Has Gotta Stop’

Including video and lyrics to his new social justice anthem against government mandates on the eve of his American tour.

Eric Clapton has become more than a legendary rocker and guitarist with the debute his new track, “This Has Gotta Stop.” Now he is an American hero.

Predictably, mainstream media were quick to downplay this social justice song upon its Friday release. It’s a catchy tune with lyrics and visuals that portray what is on most people’s mind: These COVID, masks, lockdowns, vaccines bullish!t lies have to stop.

Only the most indoctrinated propaganda victims would dare find fault with “This Has Gotta Stop.”

Clapton said he had a “disastrous” reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine and blamed “propaganda [that] said the vaccine was safe for everyone” after he was left fearing he’d “never play again.”

“I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days. I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one,” Clapton said in a letter to architect and anti-lockdown activist Robin Monotti Graziadei, which was shared with Clapton’s permission.

Clapton, who received the AstraZeneca shot in February, added that he was later offered the second dose after six weeks, which he accepted only because he had “a little more knowledge of the dangers.”

“Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again,” Clapton wrote.

Clapton noted that he “should’ve never gone near the needle” because of his “peripheral neuropathy” but added the “propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone.”

“I continue to tread the path of passive rebellion and try to tow the line in order to be able to actively love my family, but it’s hard to bite my tongue with what I now know,” Clapton wrote.

“I’ve been a rebel all my life, against tyranny and arrogant authority, which is what we have now,” Clapton said of the song. “But I also crave fellowship, compassion and love … I believe with these things we can prevail.”

Lyrics to “This Has Gotta Stop” by Eric Clapton

This has gotta stop
Enough is enough
I can’t take this BS any longer

It’s gone far enough
If you wanna claim my soul
You’ll have to come and break down this door

I knew that something was going on wrong
When you started laying down the law

I can’t move my hands
I break out in sweat
I wanna cry
Can’t take it anymore

This has gotta stop
Enough is enough
I can’t take this BS any longer

It’s gone far enough
If you wanna claim my soul
You’ll have to come and break down this door

I’ve been around
Long long time
Seen it all
And I’m used to being free

I know who I am
Try to do what’s right
So lock me up and throw away the key

This has gotta stop
Enough is enough
I can’t take this BS any longer

It’s gone far enough
If you wanna claim my soul
You’ll have to come and break down this door

Thinkin’ of my kids
What’s left for them
And then what’s coming down the road

The light in the tunnel
Could be the southbound train
Lord, please help them with their load

This has gotta stop
Enough is enough
I can’t take this BS any longer

It’s gone far enough
If you wanna claim my soul
You’ll have to come and break down this door

This has gotta stop
Enough is enough
I can’t take this BS any longer

It’s gone far enough
If you wanna claim my soul
You’ll have to come and break down this door

(This door)
(This door)
(This door)
(Break down this door)

(This door)
(This door)
(This door)
(Break down this door)

The official music video for “This Has Gotta Stop”, released on the 27th of August, 2021, was directed by Machine That Eats and Dave Kaplan and animated by the former.

It has the following in its description, “The song was written by Clapton, produced by his longtime producing partner Simon Climie and is performed by Clapton, Sonny Emery on drums, Nathan East on bass, Sharon White on background vocals along with Nick Ingman as the strings arranger and conductor and Perry Montague-Mason as strings leader.”

Tickets to Clapton’s upcoming tour in the United States are selling strong. He will only play in venues that do not enforce COVID-19 vaccine restrictions.

Urgent Safety Tips if Near the Path of a Hurricane

With Additional Emphasis for RVers and Campers

How much wind would it take to blow you away?

Depending on what you weigh, the strongest sustained winds a large man might be able to withstand without getting blown away is near 70 mph. The maximum gust he could stand without getting blown away is roughly 95 mph.

Severe Weather Events

The following weather events are the most common while camping.  Knowing what to do can make you more educated in case of an emergency.  If you are camping in high-risk areas for hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, and flooding, be sure to have your alerts/radios activated during your stay.


There are no reliable warning signs that lightning is going to strike.  If you are outdoors when a lightning storm occurs, your first thought should be to get to shelter to a building or inside your camper as quickly as possible.

If that is not feasible, the next thing to consider is crouching down close to the ground until the lightning passes. 

Make sure you are not the tallest thing around or close to a lone tree or tall object during a lightning storm. 

Generally it’s a good idea to unplug your power at a campground when a big storm is coming. If lightening hits the ground, even on the other side of the campground, it can cause a surge of power through the line into your RV and cause things to burn out. You are usually safe to run your built in generator.

The 30-30 Rule is an easy way to determine the threat of lightning in your area: 30 Seconds: Count the seconds between seeing lightning and hearing thunder. If this time is less than 30 seconds, lightning is a threat. Seek shelter immediately.

Over 60% of lightning fatalities happen when people biking, boating, hiking, camping or fishing.

Most lightning victims are close to safe shelter but don’t head towards it.

Lightening kills more people each year than Tornadoes and Hurricanes combined.

Tornadoes and High Winds

Tornado Watches are issued by the Storm Prediction Center for counties where tornadoes may occur. The watch area is typically large, covering numerous counties or even states. 

Tornado Warning: Take Action! A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar.

If a Tornado Warning is issued get below ground as quickly as possible.

Get to the nearest storm shelter or basement. If that is not available, try to find a small interior room on the lowest floor the closest sturdy building.

Be sure to leave vehicles as they can go airborne in a strong tornado.

If you are caught in the open during a tornado, lie flat on the ground or try to find a ditch or culvert and roll into a ball to protect your head and torso.

Avoid highway overpasses as a place of shelter, they become wind tunnels during a tornado.

There are several atmospheric warning signs that precipitate a tornado’s arrival:

A dark, often greenish, sky  

Wall clouds or an approaching cloud of debris  

Large hail often in the absence of rain  

Before a tornado strikes, the wind may die down and the air may become very still  

A loud roar similar to a freight train may be heard  

An approaching cloud of debris, even if a funnel is not visible

Despite great strides made in meteorology that help us understand and predict tornadoes, there are still many unknown variables. Advance warning and proper precautions are the only certainties.

Tornadoes can occur at any hour but usually strike during the late afternoon and early evening (3 to 9 p.m. although I had a friend who his lost his life to one at 10:30 a.m.). Most move from southwest to northeast but can move in any direction.

High winds knocked train off bridge in New Mexico, 2019.

They have an average speed of 30 mph, but speeds can vary from nearly stationary to 70 mph.

Normally a tornado will stay on the ground no more than 20 minutes, however, one tornado can touch the ground several times in different areas.

 Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph for one hour and/or frequent gusts of at least 45 mph are occurring or expected within the next 36 hours. These winds make it difficult to drive high profile vehicles. 

Winds ranging from 55-63 mph are classed as storm winds, and often result in significant structural damage to RVs, buildings and structures. as well as uproot trees.

Thunderstorm winds of 60-75 mph can overturn unanchored mobile homes (many are unanchored), blow over moving tractor trailers, destroy the average sized shed, and rip some house roofs off. Even worse, these winds are capable of downing trees large enough to easily kill a person.

One study indicated the minimum overturning wind speeds needed to overturn an 18 foot travel trailer was 53 miles per hour (MPH) from a  perpendicular direction to the RV.

For a 29.5 foot motor home: 65 MPH.

For a 29,983 lb. semI-trailer: 73 MPH.

For a 16.4 Class B camper van: 101 MPH.

If you have time and can do it safely when heavy winds are imminent, point your rig in the direction the wind is coming from. This will greatly reduce the impact compared to if you are getting hit broadside.

Put slides and awnings in and stabilizing jacks down. 

Stay hitched up to your vehicle if possible, or hitch-up. Being attached to another large object could lessen impact some.

If motorhome has air bags release the air so that you have less bounce.
If possible and it looks more safe, park next to a wall or hillside to potentially lessen wind impact and even hail damage. (We recently parked to the exterior wall of a trash compactor at a Wendy’s during a sudden hailstorm. Because we were on the side away from the direction the hail was coming down at a strong angle, we had no damages).

It’s vital to move your rig if you are parked under trees. Branches and limbs often go through roofs and windows, causing severe damage or total devastation.

Bottom line: if possible seek quick and more reliable shelter (restrooms, caves, basements, etc.). Variousness in materials, type, weight and conditions will cause different results.

Don’t try to ride out any severe storm in a RV.Even if they may seem sturdy, they do not have a suitable foundation and can be blown over by strong winds or swept away in the event of flooding. Look for the nearest solid structure if a tornado or high winds are present.

Avoid driving in high winds. A motorhome or trailer in motion has far different aerodynamics and dangers than those stationary.

Flash Floods

A flash flood is a flood with a rapid onset, generally less than six hours. 

You may not know a rainstorm 6 miles away happens until the water rushes and fills reservoirs where you are. Be aware if you are camping in a low ground area that is subject to flooding before you camp there.

If you are in a flood zone and get a warning, get to high ground as soon as possible.

Be especially cautious at night when you are driving. Don’t cross flooded roads.  It only takes 18 – 24 inches of water to float an average vehicle. If you are surrounded by water that is not moving, abandon the vehicle and move to higher ground.

If there’s enough time and conditions are safe enough before a storm, drive away from the area.

Otherwise, store the RV in a secure facility as far away as possible from the predicted path of a storm.

If you must park your RV in an open area, make sure it’s on high ground and away from large trees.

Severe Thunderstorms

Know your weather terminology:

Watch: A Watch is when conditions are favorable to become a problem. Be on Alert! Have your weather radios available to receive warnings.

Warning: A Warning is when a weather event is occurring or is expected shortly. If one is issued, it is time to take action.

Severe Thunderstorm: This is a storm that produces one or more of the following: a wind greater than 58 mph, hail resulting in 1 inch or larger, or a tornado.

The 3 A’s of Camping

Years ago, before the days of cell phones, I was tent camping at Garner State Park in Texas with friends and had no way of knowing danger was ahead.

Lightning, strong winds and heavy rain were our only notice in the middle of the night. Concerned of flash flooding from the Frio River, we bit the bullet, grabbed what we could and drove to higher ground.

Others weren’t so fortunate.  We lost a tent, blankets and lawn chairs. Some lost their lives.

Even today, because of that experience, I stay alert of weather conditions.

The Three A’s of Campground Weather Safety


Check the forecast before you travel or set up camp.  Once you are in camping mode or vacation mind, you are planning for fun! But weather can change that quickly so know what the weather is going to be like over the next couple days so you can make good decisions about your activities and destinations.  Use a reliable weather information website like NOAA  or the National Weather Service.

If you are in an area that has cell service, then a weather appwith emergency weather notification is a great thing to have set up.  They have a free and paid version.  The app will send you a notification when there are watches and warnings for the area you are in.  Be sure to have your app set up to notify you even if your other notifications are off and also have your location setting turned on.


Have your weather radios set up to alert you when there is a threat.  There are different kinds of weather radio options. We have one we can crank if all the other options (solar, batteries, electrical outlet plugin) fail or are unavailable.

Having a radio that doubles as a walkie-talkie can be a good choice to make the most of small space storage.

Frio River near Garner State Park, Texas.

Have a weather contingency plan.  What will you do if the weather suddenly changes and you are in danger?  Everyone on your trip should have a job to do and know how to do it in case of an emergency evacuation.

In case of an emergency, how will you make contact with help?  What is cell service is lost? Using emergency radios can make the difference in campground weather safety.


Have a plan on what to do if there is threatening weather that may put you in danger.

Know where you are – use a GPS to help identify your location in case you need it.

Know your evacuation plan:  If you need to evacuate where are you going?  Are you going to stick it out?

Use your weather radios to keep abreast of changes in weather in your area.

If advised to evacuate, do so immediately. “It may be too late the second time,” Texas Park & Wildlife Department officials said. “The first time we can get them out by land, the second time it will be by boat if we can get to them at all.”

Don’t attempt to drive through flooded roads, even if the water looks shallow. “If you can’t see the road, don’t try it,” the Texas Park and Wildlife official said. “It’ll be a deadly mistake.”

Watch out for downed power lines and do not go near them, even around residences.

If you get a weather notification for an approaching storm of any kind, start to clean up your campsite and put things away that could potentially become airborne in a wind gust situation.  Your RV windows, motorcycles and your camping neighbors will love you for it.

A few things to remember:

Have flashlights ready in case of power outage and you don’t have RV house batteries.

Have a weather radio and/or weather app set to alert you when there is a weather event

Have activity appropriate apparel and shoes for your outings in case of unexpected weather.  Dress in layers to avoid discomfort in changes of temperatures.

Keep a positive attitude!  You can’t control the weather but you can wait out bad weather by planning to have games and activities to do when bad weather strikes.

If your plans have to change because of weather, be sure to have some alternate activities planned.  A stash of games and cards can turn a disappointment into another kind of fun!

How Barack Obama Controls the Biden White House

Days before he lost a second term in the White House, I interviewed President Jimmy Carter behind the Alamo.

Although young, I could sense his answers were basically canned responses and that he wasn’t certain about the upcoming election outcome.

Carter in front of Alamo. Jack Dennis 1980

During this 1980 campaign, an observer noted, “If you ask Jimmy Carter what time it is, he’d tell you how to build a watch but if you asked Ronald Reagan what time it is, he’d say it time to get this country moving again.” Reagan always knew where he was going and where he wanted to lead the nation.

Among the accomplishments, he emphasized to the crowd from the stage set up for him in front of the Shrine of Texas Liberty moments later, were advancements in government bureaucracy and education.

🔹The Carter Administration created the powerful Senior Executive Service (SES). Have you never heard of them? You will below.

🔹The Carter Administration created the Department of Education.

Six months after Trump declared his candidacy for presidency, the powers behind the Obama White House realized the threat to their agenda. They began moving into action and on December 15, 2015, Barack Obama signed an executive order virtually no one talked about, or God forbid, report on.

The executive order was purposefully secretive. Why? It is likely treasonous.

It was the beginning of a secret government force, that in retrospect we now know was intended as coup d’etat of a duly elected president and the ongoing “complete transformation of America.”

Obama’s executive order put into action a complicated and destructive plan to change the political structure of America.

The current White House puppets are dictated to by this premise.

The Deep State Purge

Immediately, Obama began an accelerated removal of thousands of American patriots from virtually every government agency began.

The purge was massive and was particularly harmful to our intelligence services and military.

Those expelled were replaced with only the most loyal party loyalists.  Political operatives were specifically placed in key posts to circumvent the Constitution and change our government towards Deep State globalists and their progressive-socialist agendas.

Trump called them “The Swamp.” Although Trump had been draining these operatives, it was discovered Obama had actually begun the purging since the beginning of his first term. The executive order hastened it when they realized Trump could be a threat to their takeover and his rising potential of defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016.

If Clinton were to be defeated, these actions would ensure a massive army of operatives waiting for Donald Trump.

Two Missions

This army of political operatives have two missions:

🔹The complete political, cultural and economic transformation of America.

🔹The overthrow of a Donald J. Trump.

Deep State = SES

The Deep State army would be the “Senior Executive Service,” the SES. Have you ever heard of them? If not, it’s by design. Below is their official flag and emblem.

SES was created on September 19, 1979 during the Carter administration for the purpose of professionalizing career civil service. It would “improve and modernize the management of the federal bureaucracy.”

From the government website:

“Members of the SES serve in the key positions just below the top Presidential appointees. SES members are the major link between these appointees and the rest of the Federal workforce. They operate and oversee nearly every government activity in approximately 75 Federal agencies.”

Today, a position within the SES is considered the equivalent to general officer or the flag officer ranks in the U.S. Armed Forces. By the time Obama’s order began the purging, these operatives were being referred to as “civilian generals.”

Known in Washington as “Obama’s Army,” these operatives were given the best jobs in the federal government that require no experience, no skills, and yet get the highest pay of anyone. If you’re the boss of your department, it’s hard to fire yourself.

The civilian general pay scale starts above the top level of civil service (GS-15), with base salaries ranging from a minimum of $127,914 to a maximum of $192,300 (2019 figures).

On the day Obama signed the executive order these civilian officers jobs changed from implementing policing to massively changing it.

Although Trump quickly began a purge of his own, especially with the FBI and DOJ, his administration was faced with enormous obstructions. Partly because of the massive changes by Deep State operatives but primarily due to the difficulties of firing SES civilian generals.

“To say Obama’s transformation of the SES into an army of political operatives was effective would be a gross understatement,” stated one observer.

Although Trump was able to eventually rid many of these operatives out of their positions, the task was too massive for just one term.

Imbedded Operatives Are Deep State

Today there are more than 2 million federal government employees. Most of the leaders of these employees are about 8,000 SES managers. Obama replaced over 6,000 of those managers with these Deep State operatives during his eight years in the Oval Office.

It’s important to note if you are doing your own verification research that “officially” they are not in the FBI, DOJ, and State Department.

There are “look-alike” senior management systems inside some federal agencies that fill the exact same purposes and those systems are directly connected to SES. Even the Department of Defense has these Deep State appointees, though they officially claim they do not. 

You cannot find their names on official lists. Remember they are imbedded in the DEEP state. SES is a system of controlling power through secrecy, and acting with complete impunity.

On the day Trump began his first day as President, 821 operatives were in place at the Department of Justice.

It wasn’t just the DOJ. Obama placed 639 operative managers at Homeland Security.

When former Texas Governor Rick Perry took over as Trump’s Energy Secretary, he faced 490 new operatives.

Here’s a list of other Departments (as Trump left office):

Department of Education – 86

Department of Housing & Urban Development – 115

Department of the Air Force – 182

Department of Labor – 200

Department of State – 204

Department of Transportation – 231

Department of Interior – 258

Department of the Army – 261

Department of the Navy – 326

Department of Veterans Affairs – 357

Department of Agriculture – 361

Department of Commerce – 425

Department of the Treasury – 458

Department of Health & Human Services – 468

All Other Agencies (all non-Cabinet level agencies) – 1,796

National Security

President Trump, learning the vulnerability of our nation’s military deterioration,  knew his team had to quickly act. Obama’s purge of the military was damaging to national security, as he literally gutted the command structure of the U.S. military.

Retired high ranking officers have told me of being subject to radical policies of social engineering and intense political correctness. The demoralization of the ranks was enormous.

An account of Obama’s purge
included the replacement of nine Senior Commanding Generals, two Nuclear Commanders, 197 high ranking Senior, General and Flag Officers, along with thousands of non-commissioned officers.

The FBI and Homeland Security Takeover

Trump learned that at least equally threatening was the Obama operatives takeover and transformation of the Department of Justice, the F.B.I. and the Intelligence Agencies. It’s obvious now to millions of Americans that FBI Director Christopher Wray, Supreme Court Justice John Roberts, William Barr and so many others are part of this Deep State.

One observer described these operatives as “the defacto 4th Branch of Government” who have been “dictating and carrying out their own policies, while openly subverting and sabotaging those of a duly elected president.”

The most important point to grasp is that Obama (with operatives such as Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder…) continues to be the man in charge of carrying them out as the Deep State and Shadow Government’s placeholder.

The purpose of Joe Biden is to be a symbolic frontman, but the public is catching on.

The Deep State and Globalist threw everything they had to make certain Trump was America’s last true president. No one, but their chosen and controlled puppet can be allowed to be president. All sheep must obey: getting vaccinated, staying home, believing mainstream media and remaining fearful help their cause.

Carter’s Department of Education

Critical Race Theory (CRT), postulates that all White Americans are born evil and that all Black Americans are born victims. While on paper CRT is supposed to teach “diversity and inclusion,” in reality it’s undoing the sacrifices of the Civil Rights pioneers who wanted us to not see color or race.

Biden’s Department of Education is actively funneling grant funding to schools that implement programs that teach the tenants of CRT. The initial program only provides a few million dollars in funding, but if implemented, the administration will enact billions in similar funding. Indoctrination at all levels are paramount.

In retrospect, Carter wasn’t such a good president but he wasn’t a bad man. Biden is a bad president and a bad man.

Carter never at his worst ever contemplated the things Biden is doing, such as revoking Trump’s protection of American statues from the evil of BLM and Antifa. 

Carter, had good intentions and was never un-American. Biden is a radical leftist and a tool of the forces who want to destroy our country.

Biden came to Washington promising the world to his Leftist base. Time will tell, but unless Republicans get their act together and take back Congress and the White House, then our country’s trials have only just begun.

Family, Residents Mourn Loss of Young Navy Medic Killed in Kabul

Residents of Milan, Ohio and patriots across the country are mourning the loss of one of their own, a young Ohio Navy medic who was killed in the Kabul terrorist attack Thursday.

One of the 13 U.S. service members (and more than 100 Afghans) killed, Max Soviak graduated just four years ago from Edison High School.

Soviak’s body was among the dead after the terrorist group ISIS-K bombed released gunfire at Hamid Karzai International Airport.

Edison Local Schools released a statement Friday on Soviak’s passing.

“It is with deepest sorrow that I am sharing this news,” the statement read. “The Edison Local Schools was informed this morning that Max Soviak, a 2017 graduate of Edison High School, was killed in the suicide bombing at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan yesterday. Max was a good student who was active in sports and other activities throughout his school career. He was well respected and liked by everyone who knew him. Max was full of life in everything he did. Our schools and local community are mourning the loss of Max. He and his family are in all of our thoughts and prayers.”

The statement noted that Soviak’s family has asked that everyone respect their privacy at this difficult time.

Soviak’s sister, Marilyn Soviak, expressed her sorrow for the loss of her brother on Instagram, writing in part, “I’ve never been one for politics and i’m not going to start now. What I will say is that my beautiful, intelligent, beat-to-the-sound of his own drum, annoying, charming baby brother was killed yesterday helping to save lives.”

Eighteen U.S. service members were also wounded in the attacks, marking the deadliest day for U.S. forces in Afghanistan since August 2011.
