  1. Could someone please explain why they keep having this darling little judge junior doing these press conferences like she's mayor of NYC? I'm dying like so many other Texans (to know).

  2. the normal amount of days you and your family should plan for in an emergency is 7 to 10 days, the FEMA website has the recommended amounts of water and food per family member on there web site. Also be sure to have a disaster plan in place for all types of emergencies

  3. It is not the states or the federal government responsibility to supply you with water and power, ultimately it is your own responsibility to make sure you and your family are taken care of during an emergency

  4. It seem like a Human Right Violation ! Pointing fingers to other country with lies. Negativity energy attract the like . Chang to a more positive energy for the people and the country.God bless America>

  5. OUR STATE OF TEXAS DO NOT NEED AOC COMING TO GIVE HANDOUTS TO US IN ORDER TO BRING HER HATE AMERICA MENTALITY TO US AND MUCH LESS TO PREACH SOCIALISM IN EXCHANGE FOR THE MONEY. SHE IS A HIPOCRAT THAT CAN CARE LESS ABOUT US AND LOOK HOW SHE RUINED NEW YORK BY NOT WANTING LARGE CORPORATIONS TO STAY IN NEW YORK. WE ARE NOT STUPID AND WE DO NOT WANT HER HIPOCRATE MENTALITY HERE. I WON'T TRUST AOC EVEN IF SHE COMES TO US WITH 20 MILLION DOLLARS. SHE HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT SHE TRULY HATES AMERICA, WANTS TO TAKE THE GUNS FROM US, WANTS TO CONTROL OUR PEOPLE AND IS LOOKING TO GET SUPPORT BY BRINGING AN AGENDA THAT WILL BRING HATE, DIVISION, LIES, CHAOS, VIOLENCE, ANTIFA, BLM TO TEXAS… NO WAY… GET OUT… WE DON'T NEED YOU!!!!

  6. Judge Hildago is amazing. She should run for office. So appreciate a Texas leader who is bright and efficient, unlike one vacationing senator.

  7. we all need to be thankful that the CDC has not told us that another "alleged" virus has come on the scene that causes people to lose control of their bladder + bowels. We already have to wear a face diaper at times, but they could mandate that we all have to start wearing an actual diaper to. The door greeter at Walmart will stop people at the door and ask; " you have your face diaper, do you have your other diaper to?" Lol's ( just 'cause you live in the South, does not mean that you may not have severe weather.) Lived in Arkansas for 7 years, after living in Wisconsin for 40 yrs, after 2 years in Arkansas we received 6 inches of snow on Christmas Eve…talk about people being unprepared??? if people in the South do not learn this valuable lesson and stock up on certain things , then they will only suffer again next year possibly

  8. Talking about this now is the way adults handle things. So…
    DEBUNKING REGULATION
    Texas is the worst in Healthcare, Education, Energy, Safety Standards, Institutional Racism, and more since GW Bush, Karl Rove, Jerome Corsi, Et al. GW Bush ushered in the ENRON group… remember that nightmare? Deregulation made a lot of people rich. It also made electricity rates triple for all of us.

    GW Bush destroyed medicaid and offered you the "freedom" to choose plans none of which you could afford. But he gave you a "choice".

    GW Bush destroyed the public school system to offer you "vouchers" to unacredited "private" schools. And Texas had the lowest rating in education of the country. But he called his plan the "No Child Left Behind" plan that left all children behind.

    GW Bush led us into a war for oil, remember? The country was fed up and didn't want anymore "Oil Men" in the Whitehouse.

    So now Republicans put a "Billionaire" in the Whitehouse to run the country like a business. Unfortunately, he did that but for his own business and not the country's interest.

    Nobody wants to be regulated. We don't make rules because we like doing it. We don't like it. But without rules chemical plants would blow up, drinking water would kill you in days, the walls of you house would release carcinogens that would kill you, the air you breathe would kill you, etc.

    We make rules because we want to do right by all the people. Because companies would rather make more money than to make sure their products and labor won't kill you. This is not an exaggeration… 
    LOOK AT TEXAS!!!

    So… BETTER DEAD THAN REGULATED? This is the ultimate example of the consequences of voting republican. This is the result of voting against your own interest. BETTER DEAD THAN DEMOCRAT…  eh Texas?

    Donald Trump bragged about all the regulations he destroyed as if he had saved the country. To Republicans deregulation equals freedom. It literally means the freedom to rob the working families and drive them into the ground.

    But Republicans bring out the flag and claim that Democrats are against freedom and therefore are socialists. Please understand this MAGA members. You all are shooting yourself in the foot by believing Republican propaganda. They are lying to you.

    Rick Perry says Texans would rather die than to have the energy companies regulated. Is that true? Do you only care about electric company's broker's profits?

    This is why regulations are needed.

    Free market good, predatory market bad.

    Republican Economic Policies:

    Tax cuts for the rich, supply-side economics, voodoo economics, Reaganomics, trickle-down economics have all been proven to be a failed economics approach. In 1981 David Stockman, the OMB director, wrote an artical published in The Atlanta that Reagan's economic program would lead the country into huge deficits. After his famous visit to the woodshed David softened his words a bit. But Senator Alan Cranston remarked that the country would be shocked if they knew that the budget was based on numbers pulled out of thin air. Why can't tax cuts for the wealthy be formally shown to be a failed strategy so we as a country can move on in a reality based economic system? Remember, GW Bush borrowed money from China to give to the wealthy as a tax cut. Republicans do not care about reducing the national debt. Republicans will do intellectual double back somersaults to explain their economics.

    What other tricks do republicans have to manipulate the economy? They can go back to creating Drug Wars https://youtu.be/MSQZoSm-8fk
    or they can go back to creating energy shortages to raise prices
    Enron energy https://youtu.be/e5qC1YGRMKI
    or they can bailout the banks again like in the crash of 2008

    These are the things republicans do… but now we have to add white supremacy gun violence,  Trade Tarrifs, Child Detentions Centers, etc.

  9. A man-made disaster from the lost of power due to old power structure and TX having it's own power grid ( not connected to the National grid). No state should be allowed to be deregulated, we are 1 country. Not state run.

  10. In other words, Texans should be willing and ready to go without for as long as it takes to keep his pockets lined. Hopefully people remember what their "leadership" did while they were suffering and dying in the cold.

  11. Weather warfare, Geo-terrorism, just like California, they are saying look, we can aim our weather weapons at you anytime, anywhere in the world, we can cut your power without warning and yes, even turn the deserts to ice and the ice to desert. We can give you rain, drought, crop failures, we can send you into the next ice age with the flip of a finger. They are getting agitated and desperate.

  12. Yes fellow the money who started it Go Green someone got big Pockets of the cash on this biggest Human Disaster in history to see People Freezing and freezing to death Why Because of Greed An Liars they make me sick

  13. Who's zoomin who is the real question. The majority of people need and rely on a leader and empower gov expecting that they know more

  14. Well they better have a long conversation with their long time solo power supply grid so that this doesn’t ever happen again to anybody else especially in the state of Texas

  15. Here is for all of the US and the entire world to see first-hand: Texas is an under-developed region. That is the fault of the government – of course it's republican. They must leave, because they are unable to guarantee the safety and welfare of Texans, as is abundantly clear by now. You are cold at home, you have no water? Well, it is a republican disaster.

  16. I haven't trusted the government or the house of cards "supply chain" for a while now. Got my woodstove, propane, camping gear, water supply, and 4wd, so I'm comfortable in this snow storm.

  17. Did I hear "A lack of regulations is a huge reason for this emergency" ?
    Hhhmm ….. I wonder where that came from?

    Said no one with a functioning brain.

  18. Why hasn't Biden sent in the troops to help in the southern sates? Is it because they are red states? So much for unity and having a good response plan for emergencies. Biden is 100% responsible he is president now why isn't he acting!

  19. Ted Cruz flew to a resort in Cancun with his family to relax while his constituents are suffering and dying. Must be nice to be a Republican.

  20. #ERCOT AUDIT & ACTION REQ’D.
    Power Providers, facilities, equip, pipelines, power lines, processes & protocols, methodologies, and quality.

  21.

  23. These are the things that happen in a GOP run state. Hurricanes one after other and now ice storms. And COVID-19 on top of it. It is like God is punishing them for their stupidity.

  24. SOMETHING'S WRONG HERE,''NOT RIGHT,OR,MABY IT'S ME.THE JUDGE IS TALKING ABU A POWER SHORTAGE,BUT IF YOU LOOK OVER HER SHOULDER,''THERE'S A CITY ALL LIT UP..''WHY IS THAT.? IT DONT SEEM RIGHT.MUST BE ME,UGH.
