No matter how many times they tell the public to accept the outcome and move on, people won’t conform. Conservatives really buckled down and stuck to their guns, demanding answers on the inconsistencies.
I’ve posted this video before but for the sake of the topic and how it perfectly illustrates the point, worth posting again.
The 4 things you should ABSOLUTELY NOT do during a tornado. Any one of these actions will probably get you killed,let alone all 4.
- he let his spouse fend for herself while he’s off taking video.BTW,she was killed during the event.
- standing in front of the window. Worse the tornado is heading directly towards them.
- they did not go to a safe space. It appears they are on a higher floor,probably a 2 story house or apartment.
- they had no plan in place.NONE. He made no attempt to take any actions other than taking the video.
Now, for what you should do-the exact opposite of what this man did-that will at least maximize your chances for survival.
Tornadoes are awesome. It’s easy to get mesmerized though the most distance between us and them is a really good idea. If a tornado looks like it’s not moving it’s probably heading DIRECTLY at you. If that’s the case you’re probably too close anyway. No picture or video is worth your life or the life of your family or spouse.
Stay away from windows. They are going to break. You can be killed by debris which is how most people are killed by tornadoes.
Go to your lowest level, the best place being a basement or a shelter if you have one. If you have neither be on the lowest spot YOU have in a closet or bathroom with as many walls between you and the tornadic activity as possible. Protect your head-a helmet is perfect if you have one. Stay put until you either get an all clear or you’re sure the event is over. There is likely going to be downed power lines. They’re live. Avoid them.
Have a plan and be sure you’re whole family has it down pat. “Don’t be scared, be prepared”. Panic isn’t helpful, planning is.
Allow time. Stay weather aware. Check the storm prediction center on a regular basis. If you’re structure isn’t safe give yourself time to go to a shelter that is-or make some kind of arrangements so if the time comes you have a place to go.
Look under Convective Outlooks: https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/
Again, allow time and the best way to do that is to be weather aware. i’m never that shocked by a day that starts out gorgeous, sunny and with the prettiest blue skies; people are caught off guard and cannot believe what happened. A tornado can take place anywhere given the right conditions.
A WATCH means look out, keep an eye peeled, stay tuned. A WARNING means you better be in your designated safe area and the plan is in place.
The sirens are probably going off-if your area has any-and the tornado IS on the ground or been spotted. WARNING means it’s there. A watch is when you have some time to get to your shelter or safe space. A warning means time’s up.
Two places NOT to be; a motor vehicle/mobile home.
Do not go into an underpass. It increases wind speed. It only looks safe. It’s a terrible spot.People have done it and survived but that was ONLY by chance.
Have a weather alert system. A weather radio is excellent and they’re fairly cheap. Midland makes some good models. If you have no radio make sure you can get phone alerts especially at night.
A storm chaser i know of recommends this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071HFV836/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=rkhtv-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B071HFV836&linkId=c79588f8caa6dd4e2b6b0e292c36d6c6
If it’s out of your price range just do a search. There are cheaper models.We have a weather radio. When the alert goes off,with the volume up,you can definitely hear it. Comes in handy. The reports are for the whole area from the National Weather Service.
Night time tornadoes are especially dangerous. For 2 obvious reasons; 1. you don’t usually see them 2. you could possibly be asleep so be sure you can get alerts.
The debris after the event isn’t visible either and by then you’ve likely lost power. Which brings me to my next point. Have your flashlights ready and be sure they are working. It’s like dead batteries in a smoke alarm. If the batteries are dead, they’re not going to work when you need them. Make sure your cell phone is charged. It may come in handy too. RAIN WRAPPED TORNADOES are especially dangerous. You can’t tell they are there. Spotters don’t like em either.
Your neighborhood may want to consider a buddy look out plan. It’d be great to have arrangements to contact by phone as a secondary alert system or in some cases it could be a first. Neighbors should be willing to look out for each other. Maybe 1 or 2 neighbors have a basement they’d be willing to have some company in for awhile. We always make the offer to people. We have a basement. All are welcome to come and no need to ask.
Keep in mind if conditions are favorable for one tornado they can still be favorable for more. Stay alert, stay prepared and don’t take for granted an event is over. Wait until the weather channel or your local weather reporters give you an all clear. I’ve seen instances where 1 tornado was quickly followed by a 2nd.
Prayers for the people of Ohio that just went through tornadoes. I believe Indiana also got hit. Prayers for all. It’s a terrible experience. Helpful to BE WEATHER AWARE & PREPARED. I’m going to keep saying it from time to time.
“We are being led very, very stupidly, and I said this during the debates and people didn’t listen,” Trump proclaimed. Yep. They’re lying.They know we know they’re lying-and they’re STILL lying.
“We gave a very big stage to Russia, and we got nothing.”
President Trump reacted to Joe Biden’s embarrassing performance in front of Russian leader Vladimir Putin Wednesday, noting that “it was a very good day for Russia.”
Appearing on Hannity, Trump noted “We gave a very big stage to Russia, and we got nothing.”
He continued, “We gave up something that was unbelievably valuable. I stopped the pipeline, NordStream II, and the pipeline was stopped, and it was given back [to Germany and Russia] and nothing was gotten for it.”
Trump also spoke about the four year obsession that the media and the left had over the conspiracy theory of Russian collusion, and noted that it damaged relations while he was president.
“Well, you just have to read the news,” Trump said, adding “For five years, from the day I came down the escalator, we…

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) issued a letter to FBI Director Chris Wray on Wednesday demanding information about federal infiltration of militia and patriot groups in the lead-up to the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol protest that turned violent.Gaetz said: “As the events of January 6, 2021, come to clearer relief many questions remain unanswered. On June 8, 2021, the Senate Homeland Security Committee and the Senate Rules Committee jointly produced a 95-page report finding problems ranging from ‘federal agencies failing to warn of a potential for violence, to a lack of planning and preparation by U.S. Capitol police and law enforcement leadership.’”He posed the following three questions to Wray, demanding a written response by Aug. 1, 2021:“1. In the year leading up to the events on 1/6 and on 1/6 itself, to what extent were the three primary militia groups (the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys, and the Three Percenters) infiltrated by agencies of the federal government (including the FBI), or informants of said agencies?2. Exactly how many federal undercover agents or confidential informants were present at the Capitol or in the Capitol during the “siege” and what roles did they play (merely passive informants or active instigators)?3. Of all the unindicted co-conspirators referenced in the charging documents of those indicted for crimes on 1/6, how many worked as a confidential informant or as an undercover operative for the federal government (FBI, Army, Counterintelligence, etc.)?”The letter comes after a powerful segment on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight where Revolver News publisher Darren Beattie explained possible federal infiltration causing the violence on Jan. 6 while connecting the incident to the phony kidnapping hoax of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.Gaetz posted the clip on his Twitter account:

Georgia Audit Documents Expose Significant Election Failures In State’s Largest County
Source:CD Media Staff
Documents thatGeorgia’s largest county submitted to state officials as part of a post-election audit highlight significant irregularities in the Atlanta area during last November’s voting,ranging from identical vote tallies repeated multiple times to large batches of absentee ballots that appear to be missing from the official ballot-scanning records.
The problems in predominantly Democratic Fulton Countypotentially impact thousands of ballots in a presidential race that Joe Biden was certifiedas winning statewide by fewer than 12,000 votes.
The memos reviewed by Just the News include the handwritten tally sheets for all absentee ballots counted by the county as well as a private report from a contractor hired by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to monitor theAtlanta-area election process. The report, which chronicled seven days of problems, recorded troubling behavior likethe mysterious removal of a suitcase of sensitive…

Earlier this week a Fulton County Georgia election official admitted that the chain of custody documents that are legally required per state law are missing from the 2020 election.
Brad Raffensperger, the corrupt Secretary of State in Georgia is ultimately responsible (see picture above). For the first time an elections official admitted the chain of custody documents are missing in Georgia per the Georgia Star.
Then today John Solomon and Just The News reported that an audit of documents found that more than 100 batches of absentee ballots are missing in Fulton County Georgia!
Is this why Fulton County officials recently hired top criminal defense attorneys to defend them?
Georgia audit documents expose significant election failures in state’s largest county. Records suggest more than 100…

“If they were willing to cooperate they would have done so a long time ago.”
In an appearance on Fox News Thursday, former State Department official David Asher, who was investigating the coronavirus outbreak under President Trump, declared that China already knows the origin of the virus and will continue to refuse to co-operate with fresh probes.
“You would have thought that if they didn’t know exactly where this thing came from they would ask us for help to try to figure it out — and the world community — like they did in SARS, MERS, and the avian flu,” Asher said.
“We’ll get zero answers out of Beijing in the future,” Asher assterd, adding “If they were willing to cooperate they would have done so a long time ago.”
“Unless we adopt a much more coercive strategy, unless we put on sanctions economically, civil litigation and…

nope Joe. Not gonna happen.
FraudulentJoe Biden’s administration announced their plans to create ways for Americans to report radicalized friends and family to the government, in an effort to fight domestic terrorism.
In aconversationwith reporters, one senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it started.
“We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said.
The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility.
“This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official said.
Biden began his presidency with a stark warning…
