DRUMPF AND PUERTO RICO

~Late Night Tackles Trump and Puerto Rico~
Jordan Klepper visits Puerto Rico, finds the upside in Drumpf’s post-hurricane ‘trickle-down responsibility’

RedLineB

This is my country.

Puerto Rico is my homeland.

As Jordan very well found out on his own, the people of Puerto Rico are indomitable.

The Boricua spirit won’t be squashed.

The ’10 ouf ot 10′ goes to the people of Puerto Rico!

That’s how Puerto Rico will recover: neighbor helping neighbor.

It’s been a ‘do-it-yourself’ affair since day one!

“So-called President’ Drumpf declared his response to the brutal hurricanes in Puerto Rico a “10 out of 10,” so Jordan Klepper at Comedy Central’s The Opposition flew down to the island with purportedly high hopes.

Klepper mostly kept up his faux-alt-rightish character in his interview with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz and other Puerto Ricans, but he declared Drumpf’s recovery effort a sub-par 6.5 (“if you round up, that’s a 10, baby!”), given the huge numbers of people without power, phone service, drinking water, shelter, or working schools.

Still, he found the upside in this federal dereliction.

“I think I’m starting to put it together,” Klepper said. “When Drumpf said it was a 10, he wasn’t talking about his response, he was talking about the response he inspired. See, he’s always thinking a couple of steps ahead, so many steps, often, he’s behind. Something I like to call ‘trickle-down responsibility’ – people in the community, well then they’re the ones who step up, they come together and they fix the problems, they move forward as a people and thus become that much more united.

And we all know, Drumpf, he’s a uniter.” After awarding perfect 10’s to Puerto Ricans doing it for themselves, Klepper also brought back a gift for Drumpf himself.

Maybe Drumpf should accept him (or her).

THE AWFUL AFTERMATH

(I FOUND THE VIDEO)

~AMERICAN CITIZENS IN CRISIS~

Last Sunday, November 5, CBS 60 Minutes reported on the aftermath of Hurricane María. I watched it and my heart continued to sink.

I was looking for the video to share it with you. I found it through Facebook.

Today is the 53rd day after the hurricane hit. 

Progress has been slow and the spotlight of the main stream media has moved on to other events.

Let the video speak for itself!

(I don’t agree with all the provided in the video. The visual are all true).

BLine60MinBLine

Puerto Ricans in the island have endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane Maria. Due to a multitude of factors, some say the lights won’t be coming back on anytime soon.

It’s safe to say that of all the places in the country, the one that is suffering the most right now is the hurricane-ravaged island of Puerto Rico.

Most people probably don’t think of it as being part of the United States, but the people who live in Puerto Rico certainly do. It’s been a territory since 1898, and its 3.4 million people are U.S. citizens.

For the past 53 days, most of them have been without power, the longest blackout in American history.

FEMA says it has distributed more food and water there than any disaster its ever been involved in. Damages could reach $90 billion and Puerto Rico is already bankrupt. There has been some finger pointing about the speed and effectiveness of the relief and recovery effort, but the misery there has much more to do with nature.

When Hurricane María arrived on the morning of September 20th, it was largely unheralded and never projected to hit the continental United States, which was already suffering hurricane fatigue. But the storm tore into Puerto Rico with sustained winds of 155 miles an hour and then began a slow 12-hour crawl across the countryside, with the center of the storm enveloping the entire island.

“I think the majority of people will hope to have their power up in — in January, maybe February.

I would predict there’s some people on that last mile that are gonna be close to spring or summer before they get those very, very last houses.”

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

CBS 60 MINUTES OVERTIME

This past Sunday, November 5, CBS Television had a special segment detailing information about many Puerto Ricans, American citizens, having endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane María. I’ve been looking for this special on YouTube to share it with you.

The situation in Puerto Rico is still dire. 

It seems that the segment presented in the regular show isn’t available yet. I will keep looking and share it when I find it.

During my search, I found this 60 Minutes Overtime presented on November 5 by Brit McCandless Farmer.

Take a look, please!

Forty-eight days today, after Hurricane María hit the island, ‘60 Minutes‘ found its citizens trying to make do without water or power – and frequently losing hope

Every day and night in San Juan, there are blackouts. But having electricity at all is a privilege, since most of the island is still without power.

“At night, it really quiets down because it’s dark,” says 60 Minutes associate producer Jack Weingart.

“The street lights are out, and most homes and businesses are also dark. So at night, you just hear this constant humming of the generators.”

Weingart, along with producers Graham Messick and Michael Karzis and associate producer Vanessa Fica, recently traveled to Puerto Rico with correspondent Steve Kroft to report this week for 60 Minutes.

As they traveled throughout the island, the dire status on the ground surprised them most.

“It’s really still in an emergency mode,” Karzis says.

“They haven’t graduated into a relief mode or recovery.”

But what does this exodus mean to an already crippled island?  

“It means a territory, which is already fiscally circling the drain, having the tax base erode even further,” Karzis says.

“It does not help that you’re losing otherwise qualified professionals or a labor force that is dwindling. And what you’re left with are folks that are older, and are collecting pensions at this point or young kids.”

Almost seven weeks after the storm, producer Graham Messick says, it feels like some Puerto Ricans have given up.

“They’d lost hope,” he says. “And it’s like a state of suspended animation. People were just waiting for the power to come on. There’s just nothing to do. It’s boring. It’s hot. It’s uncomfortable.”

“And there are no answers. “

The video was produced by Will Croxton. It was edited by Will Croxton and Sarah Shafer Prediger.

MEET BADASS PUERTO RICAN WOMEN PROVING HIM WRONG

By Lisa Marie Segarra 

(September 30, 2017)

So-Called President Donald Drumpf‘ criticized Puerto Rico Sunday morning on Twitter, claiming there is “poor leadership ability” among officials and that they “want everything to be done for them” after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

The series of tweets against Puerto Rican officials began when Trump said Mayor of San Juan Carmen Yulín Cruz has been “nasty” to him after after allegedly being asked to act that way by Democrats.

CARMEN YULIN CRUZ

~MAYOR OF SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO~

IT TAKES A WOMAN

I wasn’t aware of this government official in Puerto Rico until after Hurricane María when I saw her Facebook and Twitter postings, when I saw her pictures of wading in waist deep water, carrying a bullhorn, trying to check on her constituents.

It seemed to me that in additions to speaking for the people of San Juan, she was standing up and representing all the people of the Island.

I knew there was a male governor and remembered wondering where he was.

I had been disconnected from the politics in my country for a long time, didn’t know much but general details.

Needless to say, she’s made quite the impression on me. I have heard that she has plenty of detractors and critics. I have started following Ms. Cruz and have immense respect, appreciation and admiration for her. To me, she has become the champion for the people of Puerto Rico.

Many say that she’s doing all of this because she wants to run for governor on 2020.

In my opinion, based on what I’ve seen, she would be a considerable contender, in spite of what anyone else says to the contrary.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz to Drumpf: You Can’t Handle the Truth
by SUZANNE GAMBOA

WASHINGTON, DC

Denied her chance to testify before Congress Wednesday, November 1, the mayor of Puerto Rico’s largest city used a Capitol hallway to heap criticism on ‘so-called President’ Drumpf, saying he “can’t handle the truth.”

Six weeks since the monstrous hurricane hit the island, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said the island remains in a “life or death” situation.

“The Drumpf administration can’t handle the truth,” she said, adding that “survival cannot be our new way of life.”

Cruz was supposed to testify Wednesday, November 1, before the House Committee on Homeland Security, but the hearing was abruptly canceled. Cruz got news of the cancellation after she had already headed to Washington. Brock Long, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency testified on Tuesday.

“I am here to say what I was going to say at that hearing, that they seemed not to want to hear,” she said. “Mr. Trump, do your job. Lives are at stake. This is not about politics. This is not about your ego. This is about the people of Puerto Rico and the people of the U.S. VI (Virgin Islands).”

GoldSwirlCYC2GoldSwirl

Ticking off a list of demands, Cruz said the administration needs to treat Puerto Rico with dignity and suspend the Jones Act for four years. The law restricts shipping to the island to U.S. ships with U.S. crews.

Puerto Rico needs a comprehensive “reform” and “restoration” plan that “touches on energy and education and health care, but it can’t be a plan that takes us back to the 1950’s,” she said.

“No longer will we be able to hide inequality and poverty behind palm trees and piña coladas,” she said.

Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, D-New York, organized the news conference, which was held after the caucus met. He was joined by Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who is the ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee and other Democrats.

THE DAY TIME STOOD STILL IN PUERTO RICO

MASSIVE MORAL FAILURE!!

It’s been 39 days since María battered and shattered my country, Puerto Rico.

Many stories have come out after this natural disaster.

Still, on this day, mot much has changed.

Why?

The answer to why is multi-factorial. 

However, there’s no denial that his has been a

MASSIVE HUMANITARIAN FAILURE.

Let this video do the ‘talking’.

What is happening in Puerto Rico?

Since the storm made landfall on September 20, Hurricane María has wreaked havoc on the island, causing a level of widespread destruction and disorganization paralleled by few storms in American history.  Thirty nine days after the storm abated, most of the island’s residents still lack access to electricity and clean water.

From a meteorological standpoint, María was nearly a worst-case scenario for the territory: The center of a huge, nearly Category 5 hurricane made a direct hit on Puerto Rico, lashing the island with wind and rain for longer than 30 hours.

“It was as if a 50- to 60-mile-wide tornado raged across Puerto Rico, like a buzz saw,” Jeff Weber, a meteorologist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, has told Vox.

Maria has many elements of a “catastrophic event,” and not just a disaster, says Tricia Wachtendorf, a professor of sociology at the University of Delaware who studies disaster relief.

~~HURRICANE MARIA~~

Video captures Hurricane María’s terrible impact on Puerto Rico.
On Tuesday afternoon, 34 days after the hurricane made landfall in Puerto Rico, the National Weather Service in San Juan posted an unassuming YouTube link to their Twitter account. I’ve never seen anything like it posted by the National Weather Service before.

The video is an 11 minute tour of the island, complete with drone flyovers and somber piano music. It shows the enormous scale of one of the worst humanitarian disasters in US history, as thousands of people continue to struggle for survival.

There’s footage from all corners of the island, showing washed out bridges, flattened homes, and broken infrastructure. The camera flies over a wind farm in Naguabo and a solar farm in Humacao – both destroyed in the storm. In nearly every shot, there are twisted trees, stripped of their leaves.

Though this video was intended as a visual chronicle to accompany a meteorological report, it’s striking on its own.

The Forgotten Puerto Rico …. “😥 El Puerto Rico Olvidado …. Things are NOT on way back to NORMAL 😥 …. “!!


~~October 28, 2017~~ 

THE FORGOTTEN PUERTO RICO

I’ve been keeping tabs on the ‘official death toll’ in Puerto Rico.

During Drumpf’s shameful visit to the Island, the ‘certified number’ was 17.

Keep in mind, most of the recovery activity is centered in the metro area.

The mountain towns are forgotten.

Puerto Rico is mostly mountainous with large coastal areas in the north and south. The main mountain range is called “La Cordillera Central” (The Central Range).

The highest elevation in Puerto Rico, Cerro de Punta. 1,339 meters (4,393 ft), is located in this range.
