Chris Hayes interviewed Gov Chris Christie about the flooding in Houston and his experiences having dealt with the flooding from Sandy. Part of the conversation dealt with the Texas response and members of their delegation’s opposition to aid, Senator Ted Cruz the most visible among them.
Hayes plays a clip of Cruz standing in an evacuation shelter in Houston in which the Senator stated that the New Jersey bill became a $50 billion monstrosity that was filled with unrelated pork. It starts at approximately the 2:00 mark of the video.
Cruz said, “Two-thirds of that bill had nothing to do with Sandy, and what I said then and still believe now is that it’s not right for politicians to exploit a disaster and people are hurting, to pay for their own political wish list.”
Those comments were not well received by Governor Christie, who said, “What was wrong was for Ted Cruz to exploit the disaster for political gain and that’s what he was doing. The fact of the matter is that is an absolute falsehood, that two-thirds of the $50 billion did not go to Sandy aid. It is an absolute falsehood. It was untrue when it was said then and listen, let’s remember what Senator Cruz was trying to do at the time.”
Christie continues, “He was trying to be the most conservative, the most fiscally conservative person in the world. And what I said at the time, as you might recall is, some day it’s going to come to Texas. It just does.” He promised Cruz that when their time came New Jersey would stand with them.
He says this is what the federal government is there for, asking, “If you’re not there for this, then what the hell are you doing?”
The libtard Hayes tries to blame Hurricane Harvey on “climate change,” making the claim that “we know there’s more flooding, there just is.” Actually, Hayes, there just isn’t and we know that. He forgets California just came out of a decade long drought and the lower Mississippi River floods every few years and has throughout recorded history. The worst incidences in recent history occurred 44 and 90 years ago, in 1973 and with the Great Flood of 1927. Those were both before the super villain of climate change had been invented.
He establishes the false “facts” of “Sea level rise, huge water events,” as Christie just sits there like and nods acceptingly as he’s being played. He then attempts to target President Trump for dropping the phony climate change mandates from flood preparations, as if there is any real science upon which those would be based or the fairy tales in any way impact the reality. They simply were propaganda that attempted to legitimize the hoax.
Hayes’ is animated as he says, “You’ve got the climate models,” false and inevitably wrong as they are, “this isn’t some kind of crazy voodoo works casting here.” Actually, Hayes, that’s exactly what it is. You’re either an idiot and a tool or just a tool.
Hayes nods in approval as he scores a victory by pushing Christie to agree and state, in typical establishment vague and uninformed terms, “I think what we’ve seen over the course of the last number of years, with Sandy (weakened to a post-tropical cyclone before making landfall along the coast of southern New Jersey, not a hurricane), Katrina (August 29, 2005) and now Harvey tells us that it has to be taken into account.” He then goes on to say that why “mistakes” like this are made “is because they get overly politicized.” There’s been a record twelve years, 4,324 day major hurricane drought in the United States over that period, a fact which both of these two “objective experts” totally ignored in their effort to push the globalist apocalyptic, control-grabbing, climate narrative.
Christie may be right on the his debate with Cruz or he may not, he’s wrong on the topic of climate change creating Harvey; his motivations are subject to debate.
