The hateful mayor who picked a fight with President Trump after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico last year is at it again. She’s the one who suddenly had ‘Nasty Woman’ t-shirts made while her people were suffering the results of a massive hurricane. She, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, was posted on outlets such as CNN bashing the president. The devastated island was without power and water for months and officially and 64 died due to the storm. Governor Ricardo Rossello is now suggesting the number of deceased is much higher.
Regardless of what you hear in the media, President Trump sent aid immediately. Some of the aid took awhile to get to its destination. It was poorly managed and sat in docks unused for some time. Trump signed a $36.5 billion aid package to help the struggling nation recover. The left can blame this on the Trump administration all they want, but the truth is the responsibility lies with the leadership in Puerto Rico. They know they are prone to hurricanes and they can hardly be surprised when they get hit by a monster one. They didn’t harden their infrastructure or mandate the sturdier building of homes and businesses. They didn’t stockpile food and supplies and provide enough shelters. Basically, they didn’t do their jobs. Of course, Cruz accused the U.S. government of turning its back on them which is not true.
Cruz went on a non-stop attack against Trump, saying he “speaks out of both sides of his mouth.” In other words, she called him a liar. “On the one hand, he says he wants to help Puerto Rico. On the other hand, he imposed a 20% income tax on every good and service that comes from Puerto Rico into the United States. On the one hand, he says we will be with you for the long run. And on the other hand, the [Food and Drug Administration] is trying to convince pharmaceutical companies to leave Puerto Rico,” she told CNN.
“He says he cares and he came here and threw paper towels at us,” she said, referring to Trump’s visit to the city of Guaynabo last October. “And on the other hand, he doesn’t provide his administration with a clear set of goals to help Puerto Rico.” Exactly what has Cruz done for her constituency other than whine on liberal media outlets? Nothing. She should not have been elected and shame on Puerto Rico for doing so. The media ate it up though. She was invited to late night talk shows where they love to smear the president. She felt it was her duty to address his policies, but now she’s facing some trouble.
Cruz and Trump met face to face in Puerto Rico. That seemed to quiet her down a bit, but not for long. She was right back at it. New reports are suggesting that corruption in San Juan prevented critical supplies from reaching Hurricane Maria victims. The FBI has been called in and karma has officially arrived on Cruz’s doorstep. They are investigating suppliers and Cruz’s administration.
According to a local news report from El Vocero de Puerto Rico, the FBI is investigating several suppliers for alleged corruption in San Juan. That could mean a number of things, but the details were not clear at the moment. This particular investigation was launched when former procurement director Yadira Molina filed a lawsuit claiming she faced punishment for reporting illegal activities to the local comptroller. The investigation has spread to a number of contractors and I’ll bet, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. “On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto,” the report says.
Molina claims she was blocked from trying “to report wrongdoing in her capacity as a private citizen, not as a public employee.” She was fired for trying to do the right thing here after reporting an allegedly rigged system, corruption and a slew of other claims.
It’s amazing that Cruz accuses Trump of what she was allegedly doing. There were many reports following the hurricane that U.S. supplies were stalled in the ports, with local corruption preventing proper distribution. The claims were largely dismissed by news outlets as conspiracy theories and were used to attack Trump’s relief efforts. The Trump administration later bypassed local officials and the U.S. military began delivering the goods directly to Puerto Ricans. Carlos Osorio, the FBI media representative at the San Juan field office, said that the FBI received several complaints of alleged corruption in the distribution of relief goods and that the FBI is required to look into criminal complaints.
What should happen with the Cruz situation?
Infuriating Report Comes Out About ‘More Than Half’ Of All Foreign Refugees In America
Exactly what the Democrats ordered
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Geller Report
Exactly what the Democrats ordered. Votes — paid for on the backs of the American worker and all in the cause of anti-Americanism.
MORE THAN HALF OF THE ANNUAL INFLOW OF FOREIGN REFUGEES ARRIVING IN THE UNITED STATES ARE ON FOOD STAMPS, A GOVERNMENT REPORT REVEALS.
Since 2008, as Breitbart News reported, the U.S. has permanently resettled more than 1.7 million foreign nationals and refugees through a variety of humanitarian programs like the Special Immigrant Juveniles and the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act. This is a foreign population larger than Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — a city with more than 1.5 million residents.
An annual report by the Office of Refugee Resettlement was analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Jason Richwine, in which the analyst revealed that about 56 percent of households headed by foreign refugees who arrived in the U.S. between 2011 and 2015 are using taxpayer-funded food stamps.
Nearly 30 percent of refugees received cash welfare of some sort, while 34 percent of refugees 18-years-old or older said they had no health insurance. Of the refugees who said they did have health insurance, about 50 percent said they were either on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance, both of which are taxpayer-funded.
The education levels of foreign refugees coming to the U.S. are also remarkably low. Roughly half of refugees 25-years or older said they did not have a high school diploma before arriving in the U.S.
Additionally, only 16 percent of refugees 18-years or older said they were currently seeking some kind of degree. The most common degree sought by refugees is a high school diploma.
As Breitbart News‘ Michael Patrick Leahy noted most recently, President Trump’s administration has historically reduced the annual inflow of foreign refugees. Under Trump’s “America First” agenda, the U.S. is on pace to accept less than 23,000 refugees for the Fiscal Year 2018. This would be the lowest yearly refugee admission in three decades.
Obama-Appointed Judge Gives Black Lives Matter Free Pass To Take Out Cops – Baton Rouge Officer’s Life Destroyed [OPINION]
Liberals are rejoicing
East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Tullier was critically injured in a vicious ambush that left three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers d-ad. He has filed a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter and five of its most prominent activists, including DeRay Mckesson. The lawsuit was not for money but to get some form of justice here. Black Lives Matter has ginned up cop-hatred for years, inciting violence against officers that at times allegedly result in their deaths or grievous injury as in this case.
The lawsuit charged that the activists’ criticism of law enforcement after a white Baton Rouge police officer fatally shot Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old black man, resulted in 29-year-old Gavin Long’s July 17, 2016, attack on police officers outside a convenience store and car wash near Baton Rouge police headquarters. Unfortunately for Long, who was a black military veteran from Kansas City, Missouri and deeply disturbed, there were police officers there that didn’t hesitate to take him out permanently. He was fatally shot at the scene.
Now, an Obama-appointed judge, U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson of Baton Rouge, ruled in favor of Black Lives Matter and dismissed Tullier’s suit for failure to state a plausible claim for relief. A federal appeals court has since ruled that the Baton Rouge judge correctly dismissed a lawsuit filed by Tullier. In effect, negating the premise that the national Black Lives Matter protest movement was responsible for the incident and his injuries during the deadly ambush two years ago. That is not justice… it’s social justice from the bench.
A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans affirmed the judge’s decision in a one-paragraph ruling late Wednesday. “After consideration of the complaint, district court opinion, briefs, and applicable law in this matter, we conclude that no reversible error occurred,” the panel said in an unsigned order.
I am not surprised this particular judge ruled this way or that an equally liberal appeals court backed him up. It is a travesty of justice and this liberal judge just gave a free pass to Black Lives Matter to hunt down, ambush and k-ll police officers by implementing such a verdict in my opinion. Tullier’s life was destroyed by the attack. How many other officers have to fall before we label Black Lives Matter as a domestic terror group that kills cops?
Liberals are rejoicing over this verdict as though it lets Black Lives Matter off the hook for their violent hatred towards police officers. Donna Grodner is Tullier’s attorney. She won’t comment on their next move but she did note that the appellate court panel’s ruling was unanimous, and she said asking the U.S. Supreme Court to consider a case is an extremely expensive proposition. That does not sound good for Tullier.
DeRay Mckesson has been in a number of incidents involving Black Lives Matter and violence against police officers. He was arrested during the protest that followed Alton Sterling’s shooting but he wasn’t charged by prosecutors. Time and again, despite his hateful rhetoric, McKesson has been allowed to walk. Dead and injured police officers are afforded no such leniency. He made sure to thank the appeals court for their ruling against Tullier. “This lawsuit was an attempt to silence me for speaking the truth and I will never be too afraid, to tell the truth,” he said. It’s not him ‘speaking’ that worries Americans, it’s his hatred of police and Black Lives Matter’s violence against them that scares us to death.
Tullier, who was identified in the suit as John Doe Smith for obvious reasons, but whose injuries were described in detail, alleged in the lawsuit that the Black Lives Matter movement and its leaders are liable for his injuries. I certainly agree with that but a liberal legal system didn’t. The lawsuit accused Black Lives Matter activists of negligence and it also claimed that they were responsible for Long’s deadly attack because they “knew or should have known that violently mentally disturbed persons would be aroused by their call to violence and retribution to police for the deaths of black men.” I find that statement unassailable in its logic and truth.
It is interesting to note that after Long’s ambush attack McKesson did condemn it within hours. He said the Black Lives Matter movement began as a call to end violence and remains so. Of course, in my humble opinion that is simply hogwash. He denounced Long because of the blowback that was surely heading towards Black Lives Matter over the incident. And as far as I have seen, Black Lives Matter has never called for an end to violence. In fact, it has been just the opposite of that.
Protesters in a Black Lives Matter march held outside the Minnesota State Fair in August of 2015 were captured on video yelling “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” a statement that some law enforcement members viewed as targeting police officers. And it did. Does that sound non-violent to you? “I don’t think chanting or singing what’s basically promoting killing police officers is peaceful,” St. Paul Police Federation President Dave Titus said. I absolutely agree.
The death of Sterling in 2016 spurred protests in Baton Rouge and across the country. Most of those were led by Black Lives Matter activists. The violence followed in the wake of those protests.
Gavin Eugene Long, who killed three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers and wounded three others, left a suicide note before he went on his rampage.
From The Advocate:
“…unfortunately, I see my actions as a necessary evil that I DO NOT wish to partake in, nor do I enjoy partaking in, But must partake in, in order to create substantial change within America’s police force and judicial system,” part of the note read.
“…I must bring the same destruction that bad cops continue to inflict upon my people, upon bad cops as well as good cops in hopes that the good cops (which are the majority) will be able to stand together to enact justice (and) punishment against bad cops (because) right now the police force (and) current judicial system is not doing so.
“…A sacrifice for my people and a sacrifice for the people.”
Long’s ambush killed East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Brad Garafola and Baton Rouge police officers Montrell Jackson and Matthew Gerald. The attack left Tullier and two other officers severely injured. Tullier was shot in the head, stomach, and shoulder. It almost cost him his life. He is still receiving treatment to this day for those injuries.
From Irish Angel:
“UPDATE ON DEPUTY NICK TULLIER:
NEED YOUR PRAYERS EVERYONE
“Last week, Nick went back to the hospital after his oxygen levels turned up a little lower than normal. Then last Tuesday, Nick had a seizure, the first one since July 1st. Add to the mix coughing and Nick has been moved into the ICU now. His fever did go up to 104, but it returned to normal. Over the weekend however, the fever has been up and down. Nick has been on and off a ventilator, as needed. X-rays showed his lungs were starting to clear. That was Friday. Over the weekend though, they clouded back up. Today, Nick remains in ICU and not sure on how long he will be there. He’s continuing to have problems with his lungs due to recurring pneumonia. Doctors continue treatment but the family asks one things you all can do, say a prayer for Nick…please! Nick Tullier Strong”
Grodner also represents an unnamed Baton Rouge police officer who claimed in a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter and Mckesson that he was hit in the face by a chunk of concrete thrown during a protest in Baton Rouge after the Sterling shooting. Judge Brian Jackson also threw out that suit as well, saying Black Lives Matter is a social movement and therefore can’t be sued. That’s like calling ISIS a social movement – just my two cents. I detect a definite liberal trend from this judge. The officer’s appeal is pending at the 5th Circuit, Grodner said. Yet another judge who should be removed from the bench for political bias in my viewpoint. Just shameful.
