New York Times has excellent coverage of Harvey

This is a page that shows side by side before/after short vids of areas.
https://www.nytimes.com/video/us/100000005394700/houston-flooding-is-catastrophic-as-harvey-lingers.html

Times also has maps of teh area, showing areas of flooding, all the rivers, bayous, etc. and even income mapping...most of the lower income is getting hit the hardest.

NYT has dropped the pay wall for all Harvey coverage.
I am impressed by the breath of it the reports there.

This is all beyond comprehension.

NWS has issued a Flash Flood Emergency for Catastrophic Life Threatening Flood"

for the first time in Houston, says Juanita Jean:
First time ever here, the NWS has issued a “Flash Flood Emergency for Catastrophic Life Threatening Flooding.”
The freeways are mostly underwater.
Thousands of homes are underwater.
The fire department and volunteers are actually running out of fuel performing water rescues.
The Coast Guard has announced it’s already performed 300 rescues.
The KHOU television station has flooded.

Investigation: Navy shipyard wasted $21 million building off-the-books police force

This is a hoot to read, side splitting details of how a bunch of shipyard guys created and operated
their own police and navy force for 7 years and NO authority noticed or intervened.


“These folks are not law enforcement, but they wanted to be, and all of their actions were done to become a law enforcement organization,” said Peter Lintner, the deputy director of investigations at NAVSEA. “The stunning thing is that this happened over the course of seven commanding officers, and not a single one of them put a stop to it or really even had any visibility on it. Everybody just thought, ‘Well, they’re the good guys. They’re the security department. They’re not going to do anything wrong.’ In actuality, they were doing everything wrong, and they knew it.”

Snip:
Navy regulations only allow one armed police force on any base — in this case, the Navy Police Department operated by the mid-Atlantic region of Navy Installations Command.

Nonetheless, they created their own on-base armory and stocked it with “illegally” purchased Berettas, thousands of rounds of ammunition, high-powered rifle scopes, night vision goggles and ballistic vests and helmets.

Snip:
obtained at least 92 vehicles and other equipment worth more than $4 million without any valid mission requirement — including a flatbed tractor-trailer to move the vehicles around.
To this day, all of that property is unaccounted for, according to the IG’s office.


And a boat!!!

So much more at link. I am laughing my head off. This has to become a movie.

Neo-Nazi Rally Canceled In Wisconsin As Spokesman Quits Group Due To Controversy

A neo-Nazi rally planned for September 16th in Eau Claire, Wisconsin has been canceled, according the Cory Klicko, a spokesperson for the National Socialist Movement organization who claims he quit the Nazi group in order to break away from anything that "may be perceived as negative".

WOW....CNN guy at close of rally:

Just heard a clip, CNN guy, at close of rally..
"What we just witnessed was a total eclipse of the facts.
Someone who came out on stage and lied directly to the american people".

.............

The whole country is turning against him. He lost the LA Times, the NY Time, WaPo, tv news.....

Been here before.........I remember...


There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Did Ben Carson speak at that rally?????

If so, that is Hatch act violation.
