dangerous. Preparations to protect life and property should be
rushed to completion.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are
expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life-
threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Harvey was
located by a reconnaissance plane near latitude 23.8 North,
longitude 93.0 West. Harvey is moving toward the north-northwest
near 10 mph (17 km/h). A track toward the northwest or
north-northwest at a faster forward speed is expected for the next
48 hours. On the forecast track, Harvey will approach the southern
Texas coast on Friday.

An Air Force Reserve aircraft reports that the maximum sustained
winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and
Harvey is expected to become a hurricane by Friday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
from the center.

The minimum central pressure based on data from the Air Force
Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 986 mb (29.12 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
RAINFALL: Harvey is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
10 to 15 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches over the
Texas coast through next Wednesday. During the same time period
Harvey is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 9
inches along its outer radius including parts of south, central, and
eastern Texas and the lower Mississippi Valley. Rainfall from Harvey
may cause life-threatening flooding.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water is
expected to reach the following heights above ground if the peak
surge occurs at the time of high tide…

Port Mansfield to San Luis Pass…5 to 7 ft
San Luis Pass to High Island…2 to 4 ft
Mouth of the Rio Grande to Port Mansfield…2 to 4 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to
the northeast of the landfall location, where the surge will be
accompanied by large and destructive waves. Surge-related flooding
depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and
can vary greatly over short distances. For information specific to
your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather
Service forecast office.

WIND: Hurricane conditions are likely within the hurricane warning
area late Friday or Friday night, with tropical storm conditions
expected to first reach the coast in the hurricane warning area
Friday.

SURF: Swells generated by Harvey are likely to affect the Texas,
Louisiana, and northeast Mexico coasts by Friday. These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Please consult products from your local weather office.

Tropical Storm Harvey threatens the Gulf Coast with a biblical flood disaster

The storm has the potential to drop colossal amounts of rain from Corpus Christi, Texas to Lafayette, Louisiana, with the flood-prone city of Houston in the middle of the threat zone.

Rainfall totals could exceed 20 or even 30 inches in some places, since the storm is expected to meander along the Texas coast once it makes landfall, moving less than 500 miles from Friday through Monday morning. Some computer models even loop the storm back out over the Gulf of Mexico, only to make a second landfall in northeastern Texas or western Louisiana early next week.

Such a scenario, with a juiced up hurricane making landfall and stalling out, is the stuff of nightmares for flood forecasters, since the number one killer from tropical cyclones is inland flooding.

Origins of Trump Dossier – It Was Compiled By Company Hillary Clinton Hired To Dig Up Dirt On Trump – FBI Involved

 

I have known through study that the Trump Dossier is a fake, and I am thrilled to see that the respected WASHINGTON EXAMINER and author Byron York is questioning it. In his article, York explains that Republicans are also suspicious of the same.  How could they not be?

We know that the firm FUSION GPS is deeply buried  in this.  This same firm was hired by Clinton to dig up “dirt” on Trump, the DNC to examine the so-called “hacked server”, and it was actually taken seriously by the FBI.  In fact, it is alleged that the FBI was involved in hiring the fake spy Christopher Steele to create the fake dossier.

This is, in fact, very difficult for those of us with an intellect to believe.  We simply don’t believe a word of this concocted story by those, who had the goal of setting President Trump up for failure.

The following has been taken from: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/byron-york-republicans-skeptical-about-origin-of-trump-dossier/article/2632351?utm_campaign=Washington%20Examiner:%20News%20From&utm_source=Washington%20Examiner:%20News%20From%20-%2008/23/17&utm_medium=email  QUOTE:

The Trump dossier is one of the most important and least understood elements of the Trump-Russia affair. It is important not just because its allegations are, as former FBI director James Comey said, “salacious and unverified,” but because it:

  1. It appeared to offer evidence for some of the most sensational accusations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians;
  2. It involved a pro-Clinton organization paying investigators who paid Kremlin-linked Russians for allegations about Trump; and
  3. It set Comey and Trump on a collision course when Comey chose to brief Trump about the dossier in a one-on-one meeting when Trump was president-elect.

One key talking point whenever the dossier is discussed is that it “started with Republicans,” that is, it was originally commissioned in fall 2015 by a GOP donor who hired a dirt-digging firm called Fusion GPS to look into candidate Trump. The story, now widely told, appears to come from what a “person familiar” with the dossier told the New York Times in January of this year:

The story began in September 2015, when a wealthy Republican donor who strongly opposed Mr. Trump put up the money to hire a Washington research firm run by former journalists, Fusion GPS, to compile a dossier about the real estate magnate’s past scandals and weaknesses, according to a person familiar with the effort. The person described the opposition research work on condition of anonymity, citing the volatile nature of the story and the likelihood of future legal disputes. The identity of the donor is unclear.END OF QUOTE

I knew from study that the report was created by the firm FUSION GPS, but I had read Clinton had hired it done. The above is not naming her directly.  They are using the word, “donor.”  Not only that, they are saying “a wealthy Republican donor” actually originally hired it done.  This is nothing I have read before, and it is very troubling.

The NEW TIMES SAYS THIS:  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/11/us/politics/donald-trump-russia-intelligence.html?mcubz=3

QUOTE:  After Mr. Trump emerged as the presumptive nominee in the spring, the Republican interest in financing the effort ended. But Democratic supporters of Hillary Clinton were very interested, and Fusion GPS kept doing the same deep dives, but on behalf of new clients.END OF QUOTE

 

The article goes on to say, and this is very troubling to me that “the GOP-begun dossier originally was conventional opposition research involving Trump’s business dealings — it was not about Russia.”

“At about the same time, Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee was in the news, and Glenn Simpson, the former Wall Street Journal reporter who runs Fusion GPS, shifted the Trump dossier project to Russia, hiring former British spy Christopher Steele for the job. So the Democratic part of the dossier story was the attempt to dredge up information on Russia.”

Further, I did not know that Fusion GPS was owned by Glenn Simpson formerly of the WALL STREET JOURNAL!  This more troubling as more characters are involved than I had previously thought.  Here we are seeing party lines blurred, and it is becoming more difficult to distinguish between “trusted” and “non-trusted” parties.
