    Lone star state is the only state not on the national power grid, That's where States feed each other power,but Texas State government blocks them from getting power, feel so bad for them, hope the State government steps in , at least Ted Cruz The emperor of Texas got out with his family. You guys should Pat yourself on the back, while you freeze to death, he and his family are having a good time in a Mexican resort,Where as the same Mexicans working there are not allowed in this country that he comes from,.It must be nice to Have that type of privilege.

    BioWarFare is the longest war. WeatherWarFare is for the Georgia Guidestones. Microwave the snow and watch it spark with the metals the Navy sprays in chemtrails on Planet Gates.

    And make mention of Mary in the Scripture, when she had withdrawn from her people to a chamber looking East,

    And had chosen seclusion from them. Then We sent unto her Our Spirit and it assumed for her the likeness of a perfect man.

    She said: Lo! I seek refuge in the Beneficent One from thee, if thou art God-fearing.

    He said: I am only a messenger of thy Lord, that I may bestow on thee a faultless son.

    She said: How can I have a son when no mortal hath touched me, neither have I been unchaste ?

    He said: So (it will be). Thy Lord saith: It is easy for Me. And (it will be) that We may make of him a revelation for mankind and a mercy from Us, and it is a thing ordained.

    And she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a far place.

    And the pangs of childbirth drove her unto the trunk of the palm- tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died ere this and had become a thing of naught, forgotten!

    Then (one) cried unto her from below her, saying: Grieve not! Thy Lord hath placed a rivulet beneath thee,

    And shake the trunk of the palm-tree toward thee, thou wilt cause ripe dates to fall upon thee.

    So eat and drink and be consoled. And if thou meetest any mortal, say: Lo! I have vowed a fast unto the Beneficent, and may not speak this day to any mortal.

    Then she brought him to her own folk, carrying him. They said: O Mary! Thou hast come with an amazing thing.

    O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a wicked man nor was thy mother a harlot.

    Then she pointed to him. They said: How can we talk to one who is in the cradle, a young boy ?

    He spake: Lo! I am the slave of Allah. He hath given me the Scripture and hath appointed me a Prophet,

    And hath made me blessed wheresoever I may be, and hath enjoined upon me prayer and almsgiving so long as I remain alive,

    And (hath made me) dutiful toward her who bore me, and hath not made me arrogant, unblest.

    Peace on me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!

    Such was Jesus, son of Mary: (this is) a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt.

    It befitteth not (the Majesty of) Allah that He should take unto Himself a son. Glory be to Him! When He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is.

    And lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So serve Him. That is the right path.

    The sects among them differ: but woe unto the disbelievers from the meeting of an awful Day.

    See and hear them on the Day they come unto Us! yet the evil-doers are to-day in error manifest.

    And warn them of the Day of anguish when the case hath been decided. Now they are in a state of carelessness, and they believe not.

    Lo! We, only We, inherit the earth and all who are thereon, and unto Us they are returned.

    And make mention (O Muhammad) in the Scripture of Abraham. Lo! he was a saint, a prophet.

    When he said unto his father: O my father! Why worshippest thou that which heareth not nor seeth, nor can in aught avail thee ?

    O my father! Lo! there hath come unto me of knowledge that which came not unto thee. So follow me, and I will lead thee on a right path.

    O my father! Serve not the devil. Lo! the devil is a rebel unto the Beneficent.

    O my father! Lo! I fear lest a punishment from the Beneficent overtake thee so that thou become a comrade of the devil.

    He said: Rejectest thou my gods, O Abraham ? If thou cease not, I shall surely stone thee. Depart from me a long while!

    He said: Peace be unto thee! I shall ask forgiveness of my Lord for thee. Lo! He was ever gracious unto me.

    I shall withdraw from you and that unto which ye pray beside Allah, and I shall pray unto my Lord. It may be that, in prayer unto my Lord, I shall not be unblest.

    So, when he had withdrawn from them and that which they were worshipping beside Allah, We gave him Isaac and Jacob. Each of them We made a prophet.

    And we gave them of Our mercy, and assigned to them a high and true renown.

    And make mention in the Scripture of Moses. Lo! he was chosen, and he was a messenger (of Allah), a prophet.

    We called him from the right slope of the Mount, and brought him nigh in communion.

    And We bestowed upon him of Our mercy his brother Aaron, a prophet (likewise).

    And make mention in the Scripture of Ishmael. Lo! he was a keeper of his promise, and he was a messenger (of Allah), a prophet.

    He enjoined upon his people worship and almsgiving, and was acceptable in the sight of his Lord.

    And make mention in the Scripture of Idris. Lo! he was a saint, a prophet;

    And We raised him to high station.

    These are they unto whom Allah showed favour from among the prophets, of the seed of Adam and of those whom We carried (in the ship) with Noah, and of the seed of Abraham and Israel, and from among those whom We guided and chose. When the revelations of the Beneficent were recited unto them, they fell down, adoring and weeping.

    Now there hath succeeded them a later generation whom have ruined worship and have followed lusts. But they will meet deception.

    Save him who shall repent and believe and do right. Such will enter the Garden, and they will not be wronged in aught –

    Gardens of Eden, which the Beneficent hath promised to His slaves in the unseen. Lo! His promise is ever sure of fulfilment –

    They hear therein no idle talk, but only Peace; and therein they have food for morn and evening.

    Such is the Garden which We cause the devout among Our bondmen to inherit.

    We (angels) come not down save by commandment of thy Lord. Unto Him belongeth all that is before us and all that is behind us and all that is between those two, and thy Lord was never forgetful –

    Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them! Therefor, worship thou Him and be thou steadfast in His service. Knowest thou one that can be named along with Him ?

    And man saith: When I am dead, shall I forsooth be brought forth alive ?

    Doth not man remember that We created him before, when he was naught ?

    And, by thy Lord, verily We shall assemble them and the devils, then We shall bring them, crouching, around hell.

    Then We shall pluck out from every sect whichever of them was most stubborn in rebellion to the Beneficent.

    And surely We are Best Aware of those most worthy to be burned therein.

    There is not one of you but shall approach it. That is a fixed ordinance of thy Lord.

    Then We shall rescue those who kept from evil, and leave the evil- doers crouching there.

    And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them, those who disbelieve say unto those who believe: Which of the two parties (yours or ours) is better in position, and more imposing as an army ?

    How many a generation have We destroyed before them, who were more imposing in respect of gear and outward seeming!

    Say: As for him who is in error, the Beneficent will verily prolong his span of life until, when they behold that which they were promised, whether it be punishment (in the world), or the Hour (of doom), they will know who is worse in position and who is weaker as an army.

    Allah increaseth in right guidance those who walk aright, and the good deeds which endure are better in thy Lord’s sight for reward, and better for resort.

    Hast thou seen him who disbelieveth in Our revelations and saith: Assuredly I shall be given wealth and children ?

    Hath he perused the Unseen, or hath he made a pact with the Beneficent ?

    Nay, but We shall record that which he saith and prolong for him a span of torment.

    And We shall inherit from him that whereof he spake, and he will come unto Us, alone (without his wealth and children).

    And they have chosen (other) gods beside Allah that they may be a power for them.

    Nay, but they will deny their worship of them, and become opponents unto them.

    Seest thou not that We have set the devils on the disbelievers to confound them with confusion ?

    So make no haste against them (O Muhammad). We do but number unto them a sum (of days).

    On the day when We shall gather the righteous unto the Beneficent, a goodly company.

    And drive the guilty unto hell, a weary herd,

    They will have no power of intercession, save him who hath made a covenant with his Lord.

    And they say: The Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a son.

    Assuredly ye utter a disastrous thing

    Whereby almost the heavens are torn, and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall in ruins,

    That ye ascribe unto the Beneficent a son,

    When it is not meet for (the Majesty of) the Beneficent that He should choose a son.

    There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave.

    Verily He knoweth them and numbereth them with (right) numbering.

    And each one of them will come unto Him on the Day of Resurrection, alone.

    Lo! those who believe and do good works, the Beneficent will appoint for them love.

    And We make (this Scripture) easy in thy tongue, (O Muhammad) only that thou mayst bear good tidings therewith unto those who ward off (evil), and warn therewith the froward folk.

    And how many a generation before them have We destroyed! Canst thou (Muhammad) see a single man of them, or hear from them the slightest sound ?

  10. how about you not get rid of fuel, don't put all your solar panels in one basket, and chill with the wind power. that's why it's not good for this country. we get snow, we gave snow. get out of the sheep mentality and DO NOT LISTEN TO GATES SAYING GO TO LEGIS AND SAY NO MORE FOSSIL FUEL. WE WILL ALL FREEZE TO DEATH. #WAKEupTEXAS #WAKEupUSA

    The Story
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.[28:1]
    Ta. Sin. Mim.

    These are revelations of the Scripture that maketh plain.

    We narrate unto thee (somewhat) of the story of Moses and Pharaoh with truth, for folk who believe.

    Lo! Pharaoh exalted himself in the earth and made its people castes. A tribe among them he oppressed, killing their sons and sparing their women. Lo! he was of those who work corruption.

    And We desired to show favour unto those who were oppressed in the earth, and to make them examples and to make them the inheritors,

    And to establish them in the earth, and to show Pharaoh and Haman and their hosts that which they feared from them.

    And We inspired the mother of Moses, saying: Suckle him and, when thou fearest for him, then cast him into the river and fear not nor grieve. Lo! We shall bring him back unto thee and shall make him (one) of Our messengers.

    And the family of Pharaoh took him up, that he might become for them an enemy and a sorrow, Lo! Pharaoh and Haman and their hosts were ever sinning.

    And the wife of Pharaoh said: (He will be) a consolation for me and for thee. Kill him not. Peradventure he may be of use to us, or we may choose him for a son. And they perceived not.

    And the heart of the mother of Moses became void, and she would have betrayed him if We had not fortified her heart, that she might be of the believers.

    And she said unto his sister: Trace him. So she observed him from afar, and they perceived not.

    And We had before forbidden foster-mothers for him, so she said: Shall I show you a household who will rear him for you and take care of him ?

    So We restored him to his mother that she might be comforted and not grieve, and that she might know that the promise of Allah is true. But most of them know not.

    And when he reached his full strength and was ripe, We gave him wisdom and knowledge. Thus do We reward the good.

    And he entered the city at a time of carelessness of its folk, and he found therein two men fighting, one of his own caste, and the other of his enemies; and he who was of his caste asked him for help against him who was of his enemies. So Moses struck him with his fist and killed him. He said: This is of the devil’s doing. Lo! he is an enemy, a mere misleader.

    He said: My Lord! Lo! I have wronged my soul, so forgive me. Then He forgave him. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.

    He said: My Lord! Forasmuch as Thou hast favoured me, I will nevermore be a supporter of the guilty.

    And morning found him in the city, fearing, vigilant, when behold! he who had appealed to him the day before cried out to him for help. Moses said unto him: Lo! thou art indeed a mere hothead.

    And when he would have fallen upon the man who was an enemy unto them both, he said: O Moses! Wouldst thou kill me as thou didst kill a person yesterday. Thou wouldst be nothing but a tyrant in the land, thou wouldst not be of the reformers.

    And a man came from the uttermost part of the city, running. He said: O Moses! Lo! the chiefs take counsel against thee to slay thee; therefor escape. Lo! I am of those who give thee good advice.

    So he escaped from thence, fearing, vigilant. He said: My Lord! Deliver me from the wrongdoing folk.

    And when he turned his face toward Midian, he said: Peradventure my Lord will guide me in the right road.

    And when he came unto the water of Midian he found there a whole tribe of men, watering. And he found apart from them two women keeping back (their flocks). He said: What aileth you ? The two said: We cannot give (our flocks) to drink till the shepherds return from the water; and our father is a very old man.

    So he watered (their flock) for them. Then he turned aside into the shade, and said: My Lord! I am needy of whatever good Thou sendest down for me.

    Then there came unto him one of the two women, walking shyly. She said: Lo! my father biddeth thee, that he may reward thee with a payment for that thou didst water (the flock) for us. Then, when he came unto him and told him the (whole) story, he said: Fear not! Thou hast escaped from the wrongdoing folk.

    One of the two women said: O my father! Hire him! For the best (man) that thou canst hire in the strong, the trustworthy.

    He said: Lo! I fain would marry thee to one of these two daughters of mine on condition that thou hirest thyself to me for (the term of) eight pilgrimages. Then if thou completest ten it will be of thine own accord, for I would not make it hard for thee. Allah willing, thou wilt find me of the righteous.

    He said: That (is settled) between thee and me. Whichever of the two terms I fulfil, there will be no injustice to me, and Allah is Surety over what we say.

    Then, when Moses had fulfilled the term, and was travelling with his housefolk, he saw in the distance a fire and said unto his housefolk: Bide ye (here). Lo! I see in the distance a fire; peradventure I shall bring you tidings thence, or a brand from the fire that ye may warm yourselves.

    And when he reached it, he was called from the right side of the valley in the blessed field, from the tree: O Moses! Lo! I, even I, am Allah, the Lord of the Worlds;

    Throw down thy staff. And when he saw it writhing as it had been a demon, he turned to flee headlong, (and it was said unto him): O Moses! Draw nigh and fear not. Lo! thou art of those who are secure.

    Thrust thy hand into the bosom of thy robe it will come forth white without hurt. And guard thy heart from fear. Then these shall be two proofs from your Lord unto Pharaoh and his chiefs. Lo! they are evil- living folk.

    He said: My Lord! Lo! I killed a man among them and I fear that they will kill me.

    My brother Aaron is more eloquent than me in speech. Therefor send him with me as a helper to confirm me. Lo! I fear that they will give the lie to me.

    He said: We will strengthen thine arm with thy brother, and We will give unto you both power so that they cannot reach you for Our portents. Ye twain, and those who follow you, will be the winners.

    But when Moses came unto them with Our clear tokens, they said: This is naught but invented magic. We never heard of this among our fathers of old.

    And Moses said: My Lord is Best Aware of him who bringeth guidance from His presence, and whose will be the sequel of the Home (of bliss). Lo! wrong-doers will not be successful.

    And Pharaoh said: O chiefs! I know not that ye have a god other than me, so kindle for me (a fire), O Haman, to bake the mud; and set up for me a lofty tower in order that I may survey the God of Moses; and lo! I deem him of the liars.

    And he and his hosts were haughty in the land without right, and deemed that they would never be brought back to Us.

    Therefor We seized him and his hosts, and abandoned them unto the sea. Behold the nature of the consequence for evil-doers!

    And We made them patterns that invite unto the Fire, and on the Day of Resurrection they will not be helped.

    And We made a curse to follow them in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be among the hateful.

    And We verily gave the Scripture unto Moses after We had destroyed the generations of old: clear testimonies for mankind, and a guidance and a mercy, that haply they might reflect.

    And thou (Muhammad) wast not on the western side (of the Mount) when We expounded unto Moses the commandment, and thou wast not among those present;

    But We brought forth generations, and their lives dragged on for them. And thou wast not a dweller in Midian, reciting unto them Our revelations, but We kept sending (messengers to men).

    And thou was not beside the Mount when We did call; but (the knowledge of it is) a mercy from thy Lord that thou mayst warn a folk unto whom no warner came before thee, that haply they may give heed.

    Otherwise, if disaster should afflict them because of that which their own hands have sent before (them), they might say: Our Lord! Why sentest Thou no messenger unto us, that we might have followed Thy revelations and been of the believers ?

    But when there came unto them the Truth from Our presence, they said: Why is he not given the like of what was given unto Moses ? Did they not disbelieve in that which was given unto Moses of old ? They say: Two magics that support each other; and they say: Lo! in both we are disbelievers.

    Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Then bring a scripture from the presence of Allah that giveth clearer guidance than these two (that) I may follow it, if ye are truthful.

    And if they answer thee not, then know that what they follow is their lusts. And who goeth farther astray than he who followeth his lust without guidance from Allah. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.

    And now verily We have caused the Word to reach them, that haply they may give heed.

  17. AliSakurai

    Oh no these poor celebrities. How else are they going to survive in their million dollar homes? Cute but it was of terrible snow storm that caused a lot of problems for us here. My neighbors who had power were gracious enough to let houses that didn't have power plug in extension cords. The electric companies here are only prepared for extremely hot weather not cold weather because this snowstorm happens every 10 years I am not even joking.

  18. taytoe cheeps

    Yes, he's out looking for firewood like how instagram models solve racism.

  19. tomkrzyt

    Go and ask Ted Cruz. Maybe he won't give you his middle finger.

  20. Adrienne Bodry

    Well it's not like these people who are so much better than the rest of us common folk cant just jump on a plane to Hawaii like mr. Ted Cruz going to Mexico. Nothing pisses me off more than seeing rich pampered celebrities crying about problems their bank account can fix. Shut the hell up Hollywood. You dont live off minimum wage and really struggle. Go cry in your fur pillow.

    Comstock Resources JerryJones is selling gas at prices ranging from $15 per thousand cubic feet to $179 per thousand cubic feet, a markup of between 600% and 7500% over pre-crisis levels. The idea that people might desperately need the gas and can’t afford this has probably not even occurred to him. The church of market worship has a narrow definition of sin.

  22. Truman Powell

    This cold spell happens about every 10 years. We had plenty of advance notice from weather folks. News people need to quit being malicious gossips and get the facts, report facts, not their biased opinions. "News" is not news it is propaganda for radical left. They play the blame game constantly.

  23. Ken Konard

    How is AOC’s ‘Green New Deal’ working? Free wind power… unless the windmills freeze up.

  24. Maybe Biden should stop punish Americans for not voting for the Democrats party.
    And actually do something like play President, at least a little bit, And help some people in America.
    Of course what dose his puppet master Kamillion Harris want him to do.
    Help destroy America that’s what the Democrats want, so if you’re in a country that’s not America you’ll get all of America’s money.
    Congrats, Biden is proving he didn’t legitimately win the Election.
    Places keep going I love to see Libtards trip over there imaginary world they think they live in.

  25. Texas Gal

    Big thank to Ercot… Glad our gov. is investigating them.

  26. JuCon

    Ok I feel bad for the people in Texas, they have been done wrong by their government but come on they are not the only people hit by this winter storm. I am posting this days after it aired and the snow in Texas is gone melted away and we got hit not once but multiple days of snow sleet and freezing rain single digit temperatures and today I still got stuck trying to get up my driveway because of the snow covered ice. Texas doesn't have a weather emergency they have a government emergency.
