    1. Meanwhile Ted Cruz is in Cancun with electricity. All I can say is Texan Republicans can thank themselves for this problem. Republicans run the entire show down there. So what boogeyman are they going to blame this time for their deadly failure in leadership?

    2. @David Alexander They have already decided on the strategy – they are blaming the wind turbines!! Makes so much sense, considering they only contribute 30% of the state’s electricity. If you want a good laugh, watch Tucker Carlson try to explain it. It would be funny if it wasn’t so tragically wrong.

  1. News: “Millions of Texans are without power, heat, water and food.”
    Tex Cruz: “I’ll have another margarita.”
    Texans:

    1. @Rui Ferreira No Rui. When there is a deadly natural disaster in your state, an official should not just go off and have their vacation. Especially when the disaster is large enough to require federal assistance. I hope Texans remember this when it is time to vote.

    2. @Lillian Matthews G O P IN A NUTSHELL—– ( Proverbs 6:16 through 19 -“these 6 things the Lord hates; indeed, 7 are an abomination to him: 17 a proud look [the spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, [Psalm 120:2, 3.] 18 a heart that manufactures wicked thought and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 a false witness trees out lies [even under oath], and he sows discord among his brethren.… The Amplified Bible —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–) —-Proverbs 6:16 – 19 “these 6 things the Lord doth hate: yea 7 are an abomination unto him 17 a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that sh4ed innocent blood, 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief, 19 a false witness that speak as lies and he that soweth discord among brethren.… King James version
      Proverbs 6:12 – 15
      “a useless and wicked man walks about with crooked speech 13 he winks with his eye, signals with his foot and motions with his fingers. With a perverted heart, he is always scheming evil and spreading contentions 15 therefore his disaster will come suddenly in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.
      Ec. 8:11 “11 Because sentence against a bad deed has not been executed speedily, the heart of men becomes emboldened to do bad.” —————————————————————————————————————————————————— (Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, the hearts of the sons of men is fully set to do evil.” ..The Amplified Bible
      Proverbs 11:5, 6, 19 “in his own wickedness the wicked one will fall… By their craving, those dealing treacherously will themselves be caught….. The one chasing after what is bad is in line for his own death.’
      (5 the righteousness of the blameless shall rectify and make plain his way and keep it straight, the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness. 6 the righteousness of the upright their rectitude in every area and relation – – shall deliver them, but the treacherous shall be taken in by their own iniquity and greedy desire. 19 he who is steadfast in righteousness – – uprightness and right standing with God – – shall obtain life, and he pursues evil does it to his own death.” – – – The Amplified Bible)
      Proverbs 1:19 “thus are the paths of everyone making an unjust profit. It takes away the very soul of its owners.”
      ———————————————————————————————————————————————— proverbs 22:3 “3 ”The shrewd one sees the danger and conceals himself, But the inexperienced keep right on going and suffer the consequences.”
      ———————————————————————————————————————————————-Romans 1:28 – 32 “God gave them up to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting filled as they were with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, injuriousness, being full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malicious disposition, being whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, insolent, haughty, self assuming, inventors of injurious things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, false to agreements, having no natural affection, merciless. Although these know full well the righteous decree of God, that those practicing such things are deserving of death, they not only keep on doing them but also approve those practicing them.”… (And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of him consider him worth the knowing God gave them over to a base and condemned to mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome; 29 until they were filled – – permeated and saturated – – with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous grieve, DC and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, 30 slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and dutiful to parents. 31 ] backspace [they were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. 32 though they will are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and of others who practice them.” – – The Amplified Bible
      The Amplified Bible
      2nd Timothy 3:1 through 5
      “but understand this that in the last days there will set in perilous times of great stress in trouble – – – hard to deal with and hard to bear. 2 for people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an imported and (greedy) desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffers], disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, and profane. 3 [they will be] without natural (human) affection (callous and inhumane), relentless – – – admitting of no truce or appeasement. [They will be] slanderers – – false accusers, troublemakers; intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fears, haters of good. 4 [they will be] treacherous (betrayers), rash [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God. 5 For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it – – – their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession. Avoid [all] touch people – – – turn away from them. 6 from on them are those who worm their ways into homes and captivate silly and weak natured and spiritually dwarfed women, loaded down with [the burden of their] sins [and easily] swayed and led by various evil desires and seductive impulses 7 [these week women will listen to anybody who will teach them]; they are forever inquiring and getting information, but are never able to ride at a recognition and knowledge of the Truth.
      2nd Thessalonians 2:9, 10,11,12
      The lawless one’s presence is according to the operation of Satan with every powerful work and lying signs and portents and with every unrighteous deception for those who are perishing.” 2nd Timothy 2:9, 10 (9 the coming [of the lawless one, the Antichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of [pretended] miracles and signs and elusive marvels – – [all of them] lying wonders – – 10 and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all we could deception for those who are (going to perdition,) perishing because they did not welcome the Truth but refuse to love it that they might be saved.11, therefore, God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false 12In order that all may be judged and condemned did not believe – – refuse to adhere to, trust in and rely on – – the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness. – – – The Amplified Bible)
      and what can these people expect by being lawless, in their future? There is a certain expectation that they will perish at some point for their unrighteousness.——————————dan 2——- 44 “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom+ that will never be destroyed.+ And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people.+ It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms,+ and it alone will stand forever,+ 45 just as you saw that out of the mountain a stone was cut not by hands, and that it crushed the iron, the copper, the clay, the silver, and the gold.+ The Grand God has made known to the king what will happen in the future.+ The dream is true, and its interpretation is trustworthy.”
      Daniel 2:44
      God’s advice to people who want to please him and benefit themselves read Psalms146:3 “45 and his Followers—- G O P IN A NUTSHELL——– Psalms 146:3 “put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man,, in whom there is no help. 4 his breath goeth forth , he he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.”… King James version

      dem seem to do it to a lesser degree…..just sayin

    3. Good lord you need help. 2020/30330=06660 The number of the BEAST. Get out your calculator. And pray to God for forgiveness. I’ll pray for you

    4. @Lillian Matthews pray for discernment no need to pray for me I was a theology student for years….hehehehehe…. notice I said little , but God said a lot by means of book, chapter, and verse, and yet you attribute it all to me…hummmmmm.I guess it’s easier to go into denial if you credit it to me….what…he has said to you…..strange and sad both at the same time…….pray for accurate knowledge, any old kind just will not due

  2. We could divert power to them ,but they would rather do this,our state buys and sells power ,update or pay the price,vote these people out of office.

  3. People of Texas need to wake up and realize who’s running that show the Republicans for themselves and blame everyone else.

    1. @Carl Jito They showed a clip of a republican senator blaming.., okay its weird claims jeopardy! This republican senator blamed what for power outages state wide, A natural gas, B green power, C the democrats, D the republicans, E The people of Texas, or all of the above?

    2. And, since they want to keep things to themselves – i.e., unregulated – then let the state government bail them out NOT the feds who they thumbed their collective noses at. Screw them as they brought this on themselves.

    3. @Carl Jito It was all the above! Sorry that answer was incorrect (Though we didn’t have a prize because we didn’t have a budget)

    1. Numbers are in question. So are Florida’s for much more reason. No one’s perfect. Cuomo.tried.
      He is not like Florida sending vaccine to Rich Donors, or Texas who has suffered this twice before for same reasons.

    2. @Walter Machnicz You’re making excuses for a man that deliberately took action to harm others for political reasons. Cuomo is a sleazebag and you too for lying and making excuses for him. Vaccines are sent on a priority basis and decided by the health department and not by the Gov. Texas could have benefited from Trump’s EO 13920 for Bulk power protection but your cadaver in the WH just got rid of it. Please inform yourself before you post your drivel, chump.

    3. @panthera50 – Well, they voted for Cuomo and now over 15,000 are dead. Is your IQ larger than that of a tomato by any chance?

  4. Why isn’t this automatically used? Why would a patient need to know but a doctor doesn’t? This is ridiculous!

  5. It’s the same southern mentality that’s left over from the civil war era that basically says, “you can’t tell me what to do’.

    1. Preppers might be ready for this in Texas. the Republican government was not twice before, unlikely to change now.

  6. Experts: “You should take precautions to safeguard your energy grid.”

    Texas: “DON’T TELL US WHAT TO DO!”

    1. Exceed 3rd world countries don’t land rovers on Mars. This was successful and the pictures are already being sent back.

  7. So if the power companies were warned and advised repeatedly, yet failed to “winter proof” their infrastructure, will there be class action suits for manslaughter against the CEOs? And claims for compensation from businesses & householders?

  8. “Texans would be without electricity for longer than three days to keep the federal government out off their business” A quote from Rick Perry ,The former Texas governor! There’s your answer!
