Houston rescue workers: ‘Red Cross and FEMA were virtually nowhere to be seen during Harvey’

HOUSTON, Tex. (INTELLIHUB) — Anna KhaitBrian Richmond, and other volunteer rescue workers helped to hand out emergency food and supply kits to hundreds of people who were displaced by Hurricane Harvey’s devastating winds and floodwaters offering the group an opportunity to traverse various parts of the city during their efforts where they claim that both the Red Cross and FEMA were virtually “nowhere to be seen.”

“Red Cross was nowhere to be seen,” Khait explained on a recent Leak Project videocast hosted by Rex Bear. “You didn’t see Red Cross out there [at all].”

Khait and Richmond told Bear that FEMA’s presence was lacking as well which begs the following question: Where in the hell is all of the disaster money going?

To put it all in perspective, the CEO of Red Cross Gale McGovern appeared on CBS News last week where she explained that 91% of the donations that the Red Cross receives goes to “Red Cross services.” Whatever that means.

“Like I said, on average ninety-one percent goes to our services,” the CEO said. “I am very proud of the fact that we are good stewards of our donors’ dollars.”

But a little research shows that Red Cross CEO Gail McGovern’s base salary is $500,000. Does that sound like good stewardship to you? Not to mention that over $4 million yearly is paid out to members of the upper echelon of the organization. Again, does this sound like good stewardship?

So what else did Richmond and Khait encounter in Houston after Harvey hit?

Khait told Leak Project that during the crisis their group was “armed up the butt” and was prepared to deal with any situation in which they may have encountered but realized in retrospect just how dangerous and intense those few days really were.

Richmond said at one point they were in a strip mall with a heavy National Guard and State Police presence where they were asked if they would be willing to run private security.

“The police actually inquired with us to be a private citizen security team on the ground there,” he said. “Even with of that police and National Guard presence in that small strip mall they were still wanting more armed security and they were inquiring with me because we had small arms.”

On a good note, Richmond said that their team planned the “citizen” operation so well that in most cases people wouldn’t even have to exit their vehicle to be loaded up with food and other goods they needed.

I’m tired of this shit.

    Fuck you – Gale McGovern

    Like I said before, stop giving money to the Red Cross. There were questions about donations after 9-11, like where did the money go. Give to Salvation Army, Samaritan’s Purse, and Operation Blessing. They will get the job done. You will see them on TV working in the disaster areas.

    I wonder if red-cross-gayle is as frumpy looking when she isn’t wearing her “work outfit”, I doubt it. I’ve heard her speak before about mobilizing to give out buckets and mops to flood victims in La. Hey red-cross-gayle, we live in the 21st century, not the 1800’s. I wonder just how many buckets and mops billions of dollars can buy???
