‘Your silence and amnesia are complicity. … Kirstjen Nielsen, meanwhile, sat looking smug and arrogant throughout Senator Booker’s impassioned speech. And for the record, claiming, under oath, not to remember something, when you do in fact remember is considered perjury.’
My heart took a tumble and I wondered … Am I seeing right? Some push back from a Democrat? That was beyond classy … more of this badly needed!!
More than once in recent months, I have pondered who would make the best democratic candidate for president in the 2020 contest. Elizabeth Warren? Probably a bit too controversial, but certainly qualified. John Lewis? Sadly, too old, for he would be nearly 81 years of age when he took the oath of office, though he would otherwise be my first choice. And then I keep coming back to Cory Booker. I have a project list, and Senator Booker’s name is on it, but I just hadn’t gotten to him yet. Today, something happened that raised him even higher in my esteem and I have bumped him up on the list.
At a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, claimed that she couldn’t remember what word Trump used to describe Haiti and African nations in an Oval Office meeting last week. Now, we…

~RINCON BEACH RESORT~
Whenever we travel to Puerto Rico to visit family and friends and to get away from the daily hustle and bustle, we land in Aguadilla. We drive to Rincón and check in.
The resort is our base. We drive from the base to surrounding towns to see friends and family.
As a matter of fact, we were due for our next trip before Hurricane María nearly flattened Puerto Rico 118 days ago.
Prior to that, Hurricane Irma also grazed the island.
BEST INLET EVER
AERIAL VIEWS OF THE RESORT
BEAUTIFUL SHORELINE AND SANDY BEACH
AWESOME, PERFECT RELAXING ATMOSPHERE
*(just what the doctor ordered)*
HURRICANE MARIA PATH OVER PUERTO RICO
*(the red “*“ marks the spot where the resort is located)*
NOTICE HOW BIG MARIA WAS
It engulfed and swallowed Puerto Rico.
According to the National Hurricane Center, hurricane-force winds extended up to 30 miles from Hurricane María’s center, while tropical storm-force winds extend outward for up to 125 miles.
Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is 100 miles long X 35 miles wide.
There was no place to hide!
NOTICE THE STEP DOWN WHERE THE BEACH USED TO BE
*(compare to the ‘before’ pictures)*
It’s all gone. My heart is hurting.
The friend who sent me the pictures told me that the beach lost its shore, the trees and the palm trees are gone as you can see.
The beach itself is deeper and not safe for swimming.
THE SOFT SAND IS GONE, REPLACED BY ROCKS AND DEBRIS
THE SOFT BEACH IS GONE
CANNOT WALK TO THE POINT ANYMORE
INCREDIBLE BEACH EROSION
THANKFULLY THE INNER COURTYARD SEEMS ABOUT THE SAME
Thank you to my friend Héctor

There’s no need to say anything else.
The meme says it all.
Your time will come: silence, inaction, support, complicity, tax scam, health care scam.
There’s nothing worth of the great “American Nation” left with this out of control governance.
You are part of the problem!!
