NOTE: Texas winter storm costs could top $200 billion — more than hurricanes Harvey and Ike -
The Biden Administration’s major actions that will and/or could affect Israel as Uri produced an all-time record-setting event in Texas and the southern U.S. that arrived on Presidents’ Day weekend
Our focus in the coming weeks will be the alignment of nations in the Middle East and the World Economic Forum re-set activities.
Obviously, based on the following activities by Biden and his administration, they are doing a lot of things that are worrisome for Israel.
What a contrast between President Trump’s Israel and strong region focuses versus Biden’s appeasement of enemies of Israel and the United States as he operates from weakness.
The only good news is the further acceleration of final day events and nations prior to the Lord’s return.
Below the political articles is the weather news that came on the heels of the Biden Administration activity.
As events pertaining to Israel came into focus, Texas was hit with a 100-year weather event. A few meteorologists have said that Uri was a 500-year event. This fits the Eye to Eye record-setting patterns when the land or people of Israel are put at risk.
Texas may have more Israel supporters than any other state. Nonetheless, it was devastated. Unfortunately, their leadership had allowed the green energy people to use wind turbines to have provided up to 42 percent of the power generation (according to the Wall Street Journal), not fully benefitting from their coal and natural gas. Additionally, the natural gas infrastructure that affects utilities and the overall power grid wasn’t reinforced and impacted by record cold.
Texas has its own power grid. Hopefully, this will have motivated them to reinforce the electrical grid in the event of future record cold or heat events and/or an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) event.
