From a friend working with citizen relief efforts in southeast Texas:

"I was on this Zello conversation as medical assistance due to me being a nurse…"

Wrapping up a long day day, thanking our awesome dev team:

Just so you know, we got a ticket, this morning, you might find interesting. The ticket came in as an extreme emergency from a mother. There was a 19 year old man that needed immediate rescue. He was restricted to his bed, on a ventilator, with only a couple minutes of gas left in their (oxygen) generator.

Emergency 911 refused to go out and help him, so our dispatcher got into our main channel on Zello and starting asking for help. Within seconds, someone on the channel responded, that he would find help. Within two minutes, the other guy was able to find a citizen with a private helicopter and a medic to go out there and try to rescue this young man.

As the helicopter touched down, sprinting into the house, the medic found a hysterical, screaming mother, watching her suffocating son dying in front of her eyes, because the generator had run out of gas shortly before.

Tonight, the man on the main Cajun Navy channel shared his secret as to how he was able to recruit a helicopter, in a matter of seconds. He simply called every phone number around the Lake Charles airport, asking if they had a helicopter. After about the third try, he found a man who said, “Yes, I have a bird, a medic and enough room. I’ll go get him.”

We later received a phone call from the mother, sobbing and in tears, that this young man was transported to the hospital, placed in the ICU and is in stable condition, tonight. She thanked the Cajun Navy for saving her son’s life, when nobody else, even 911, could or would respond.

This young man is alive, tonight, because os Ticket and the other devs in this team gave us the ability to field and respond to his mother’s request for help. You guys at os Ticket should know, even though you don’t have a single boat in the water and you’re in Alexandria, north of Ville Platte, the unofficial end of Cajun Country, you and the other devs, @fedaykin422, @alex are still a vital part of the Cajun Navy. Also I was involved in this call as medical assistance from *C.H.I.N.D.

*C.H.I.N.D. stands for Citizens Helping in Natural Disasters.

Another heart-wrenching story from southeast Texas:

I lost contact last night with a family of 5 in Port Arthur with a newborn. They put the baby in basket on the shelf.

Later, all 5 adults are confirmed dead. The baby survived.

Pray. There's a million others still needing help. Don't give up yet folks. We have only just begun.

Please help Texas! If you can’t physically get there to help, you can volunteer with C.H.I.N.D. and help verify those still in need of rescuing. 

If you need assistance getting rescued or know someone that does please fill out the attached form with all information. This helps responders track who has been rescued and who has not. Please don't submit duplicate requests. Someone will reach out to the contact.

Cajun Navy member talks about rescue efforts in Texas

More from today:

From a buddy volunteering with the Cajun Navy in Houston:

"Today, during a swift water rescue, one boat of two swift water trained rescue volunteers capsized.

Both volunteers have been found and are no longer with us. Please say a prayer for these two Search and Rescue volunteers and their families.

It wasn’t for nothing, they were saving lives at the risk of their own. All teams understand the inherent risk involved. This shows that it’s truly a dangerous situation and that brave men and women are willing (and VOLUNTEERING) to risk their own lives, vehicles, and boats in order to save others. When the police department chaplain announced himself over the radio, it became a very heavy moment. It’s a really difficult call to listen to knowing that it’s out of your hands while bowing your head for the chaplain’s prayer followed by a moment of silence."
-M. Miller

Let’s keep these first responders, many of whom are vets/LEOs, in our prayers, and keep the emotional and financial support coming.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
