    If you are east coast Florida, be vigilent and be ready to execute your escape plan at any moment. There is nothing certain about this hurricane and several meteorologist are now stating this. West coast should be a safe place to go. If you watch the animals, they are all acting strangely- no small birds, canadian geese are gone, turtles everywhere. Its just not right. And then theres the people...

    You have to wonder.....A few days ago, President Trump met with the globalist's minion scum in France and made them look like fools, then announced that he wanted Russia back in the G7. He also said he might insist the next meeting be held at his facilities in Palm Beach, FL. Now, we have one of the biggest hurricanes ever, headed directly towards his property.....It's just a coincidence, I'm sure.
