Puerto Rico's Untold Story

Main stream media coverage of the federal government's response to the recent natural disasters, including hurricanes Harvey, Maria, Irma and Jose, focused on feel good stories of neighbor-helping-neighbor trying to avoid stating the obvious: the federal response was the best one we have seen in the history of the nation.

That all changed when Puerto Rico took a direct hit from not one, but two hurricanes, within ten days.  Criticism levied by democrats and anti-Trumpers used identity politics claiming that the federal response was not as good because the government saw Puerto Ricans as second class citizens. 

The  San Juan Puerto Rico mayor went even further taking direct hits at President Trump & FEMA administrator claiming that federal inaction was responsible for dying children. On any given day, the mayor appeared on 1/2 dozen TV shows instead of worrying about the recovery efforts.  In one case, she complains the island does not have enough potable water, while behind her, there are pallets and pallets of bottled water.

Prior to the hurricanes, Puerto Rico had a 3rd world infrastructure, with the power grid build using toothpicks.  Puerto Rico was also on the brink of bankruptcy and incompetent/corrupt government.

FEMA's Brock Long explained that FEMA had to decide the level of assets before the first hurricane, to make sure the assets were not damaged. Whatever disaster recovery plan was put in place by the governor of Puerto Rico and the rest of the mayors is not immediately obvious.  What is obvious is that it should have included plenty of back up generators, perhapa the Tesla equipment.   Also, recently Tesla's  chief Elon Musk said his company can solve Puerto Rico's energy crisis using solar panels and batteries  

Communications back up also needed to be beefed up so that an effective command and control center could  have been assembled on short notice. Recently, the Federal Communications Commission gave Alphabet an experimental license to use its balloon-powered internet service, called Project Loon, to restore service in Puerto Rico.  This should have been tested prior to the hurricanes.  

An argument could be made that a disaster recovery plan for the power grid and communications was not done because of Puerto Rico's precarious financial status, it's leaders lack of vision, or a combination thereof  

But wait, there's more. Media coverage of disaster recovery in Texas, Louisiana and even Mexico.  In Puerto Rico we hear of the truck drivers union chief demanding three times the salary as a condition to distribute supplies.  We even hear stories of government officials hogging supplies for their own personal use.

ISIS Destroys 2000 year Old temple - Democrats are the New ISIS

in Auguist 2015, ISIS destroyed a 2000-year old templein Palmyra in Syria because in the view of the Islamic State, the  ancient temple is an affront to Islam.

Earlier this week an angry mob pulled down a statue honoring “Confederate Soldiers” at a court house in Durham, NC they found offensive.  Nancy Pelosi and Cory Booker

After close to three decades as a politician, Nancy Pelosi who  said that “The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible “ and I “call upon Speaker  Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately.”  Makes you wonder where she was for the last 30 years.

If indeed Nancy Pelosi and Cory Booker find white supremacists & slavery symbols offensive, pehaps they should drop the Democratic Party, the party that brought you the KKK AND fought for slavery.

President Trump is a Racist! Spinners Tricksters on overdrive

Not since Susan Rice when she went on five Sunday Shows to blame the Behgazi Massacre on a Youtube video to deflect any ressponsibility away from president Obama/Hilary Clinton,  have we seen the Spinners work so feverishly.

The Spinners for the most part ignored president Obama refusing to call Radical Islam by its name.  President Obama often cautioned against jumping to conclusions, while jumping to conclusions:  Remember the "stupid" Boston police or the  November 5, 2009, when mass shooting took place at Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas when Nidal Hasan, fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others and Obama called it workplace violence.  

Do not forget how Obama invited the Muslim Brotherhood and members of the Black Lives Matter to the White House.  Not to mention his mentor Reverend GD America Wright, or race baiter and advisor Al Sharpton.

This is just a sampling to show a pattern.  

President Trump by deed an action has denounced white nationalism.  But it does not matter wheat whe says, when he says it, how he says it, whom he says it to, it will not suffice.  It is not rational.  But what is rational about CNN's commentaro Navarro calling the president sub-human?

Worse:  GOP Establishment, Never Trumpers and Fence Sitters have jumped right it claiming a higher moral authority than president Trump.  Surprising?  NO! - this is what the Trump Presidency will be like.  Get used to it  Fight for it!

NATO Alliance on North Korea? Cricket Street!

The Main Stream Media (MSM) and the NATO Alliance hammered President Trump because he did not explicitly refer to  Article 5  - the principle of collective defense, which  is at the  heart of NATO’s founding treaty, despite most members not paying their fair share, including Germany.

So, where is the NATO Alliance now that North Korea has threatened to attack the United States"  Except for Australia, Japan and South Korea, Crickete Street!
