Puerto Rico Cop Says Mayor Of San Juan Sabotaging Hurricane Aid For Political Gain

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico has been accused of withholding food and supplies from residents of the island’s capital in order to milk maximum publicity and political capital from the disaster, according to a caller to a New York City Hispanic radio station who identifies herself as a Puerto Rico police officer from the San Juan suburb of Guaynabo. The officer reported that San Juan mayor Caren Yuliz Cruz is guilty of “staggering negligence and dereliction of duty in the wake of Hurricane Maria,” GotNews.com reports.

 

Via GotNews: 

The police officer begins by pleading with the U.S. Military to go directly to the people of Puerto Rico with its aid, as current efforts to work through Governor Ricardo Rossello and Mayor Cruz are proving futile. “What us Puerto Ricans need is the U.S. Armed Forces to come in and distribute the aid. And that they stop the Governor, Rossello, and the Mayor, Yulin, from continuing on doing what they’re doing. It’s an abuse; it looks like communism, in our own island.

There are dozens and thousands and thousands of food [boxes] and when people ask, we cannot give anything away because Carmen Yulin says that we cannot take anything out, because everything is a soap opera here – everything is a show,” the caller explains. “There have to be cameras here and there because, you know, they are just looking for votes for the upcoming years.”

Carmen Yulin won’t move unless there is a camera behind her,” the caller continues. “I need to speak for the people because the people are suffering. Because I, as a cop – along with other police partners – we are seeing it.

Meanwhile 

Mayor Cruz, who praised FEMA just five days ago before remembering she’s a Democrat – turned around on Friday and told CNN that FEMA and President Trump had offered no help in front of a giant stack of US aid pallets.

“We’re dying here, and I cannot fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world cannot figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long. So I am asking the president of the Untied States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives.”

If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying. And you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy.”

 

Fox’s Geraldo Rivera pretty much shut that down:

UPDATE: Conservative Treehouse reports that San Juan teamsters didn't show up for work to distribute supplies. 

Puerto Rican born and raised, Colonel Michael A. Valle (”Torch”), Commander, 101st Air and Space Operations Group, and Director of the Joint Air Component Coordination Element, 1st Air Force, responsible for Hurricane Maria relief efforts, has the following comment:

…They have the generators, water, food, medicine, and fuel on the ground, yet the supplies are not moving across the island as quickly as they’re needed.

“It’s a lack of drivers for the transport trucks, the 18 wheelers. Supplies we have. Trucks we have. There are ships full of supplies, backed up in the ports, waiting to have a vehicle to unload into. However, only 20% of the truck drivers show up to work. These are private citizens in Puerto Rico, paid by companies that are contracted by the government”.. (link)

President Trump, meanwhile, responds:  


Sad!

And now, just like clockwork, when the truth about manufactured genocide in PR is starting to trickle out, a mass shooting to distract everybody's attention by a "lone gunman" (when you can hear two guns going off) who gets shot.  

Priceless.

Unbelievably, what some of you may have heard about trucker's unions NOT delivering aid to people in their own country seems to be true. I generally like industrial unions, by the way, but this is pure evil:

In times of disaster a lot of people in key positions to make a larger organization function properly, WILL JUST STAY HOME and look out for their own families.

I think this cop is spot on, the stuff is there and not being distributed out to where it is needed.  You can't expect all the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, National Guards and volunteers in the US to drop what they are doigngand SWIM to PR.  These people left their families to help the people in Texas and then again in Florida.  Helicopters and their crews are tired and need "maintenance" and you can't expect a helicopter to fly over the water from the Keys; their have to be air lifted.  The mayor is standing in front of supplies and doing a photo-op. Terrible of her.

Even CNN has YT videos of THOUSANDS of trucks just sitting there in the sun, many with generators running, and no one to deliver it.

"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." - Rahm Emanuel

Terrible for the people ..

Politicized, financialized, polarized .. 

The mayor is apparently just another self-aggrandizing talking head, whom has received her bulleted talking points .. Jesus this world is farce.

"All the world is stage ...

Last scene of all,

That ends this strange eventful history,

Is second childishness and mere oblivion,

Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything."

60 (!) years ago, by a girl named Anita:

Puerto Rico,
My heart’s devotion--
Let it sink back in the ocean.
Always the hurricanes blowing,
Always the population growing,
And the money owing.
etc.

(Ok, I must confess, this is from the film version of 1961 - so it's almost 60 years)

If only the cgi would save Puerto Rico like it did Haiti!!

fake news, fake president.

I'm not sure this Mayor pointed finger at the narcissist, but the narcissist  now has pointed back.

First he said everything was going smoothly with the Puerto Rico relief, now he agrees it's going badly and it's this Mayor who doesnt want her pussy grabbed by him's fault.

It doesn't matter what you show that sick fuck.  Nothing short of incarceration with a professional deprogrammer is going to make a difference.

Who would want to grab that dank pussy?? You don't become rich to befoul your hands with nasty shit like that. I doubt even Bill Clinton would've diddled that even when she was thirteen, that's saying alot!! 

drewster3's picture

Not an argument.  First of all, it was going smoothly because we were getting supplies to the region.  Later on in process, it has been discovered that the leftist mayor, and her leftist goverment truck drivers Union, are not distributing the food and supplies for political reasons. Hence, Trump then has to  state that it's now not going so good.  But then, I wouldn't expect you to grasp all this, because you are nothing but an anti-Trump troll.  We know what your message is, but it means nothing to anyone on this planet.

Rivera tweeted: "On the ground I see the suffering-but feel deeply that attacking @realDonaldTrump for the ravages of nature &neglect is politicizing tragedy"

Geraldo, THAT is what the Left does. That is ALL they do during a disaster or emergency. I have close friends who were in Haiti after the quake in 2010. Of all the aid workers there, overwhelmingly (99%) were Christians and conservatives. Not a fucking Antifa, Demoncrap, or Communist to be found. The only Leftists were the media whores who tried to spin everything being done as "not trying hard enough" and "lacking" while they watched other people work ... kind of like the crap those shit-stains pulled in Houston.

She's an obvious idiot... and most likely promised much, but will receive little... idiots never do.... she's not playing the game well.... a sure sign of her expendibilty.

Trump should declare Martial Law... send in troops, I mean fucking battalions.....and own this fucking mess. Arrest all the politicians, and throw them in a brig. If truckers don't roll...shoot the mother fuckers.

Make a point.

dchang0's picture

Makes sense to me. And it would be justified. PR is over $70 billion in debt, yet the people were by and large poor (prior to the storm) with a median household income of $19,429 (reported in 2012). So where did all those billions of dollars go? They obviously didn't give it to the bulk of the >3 million people on the island (would come out to around $20,500 per person if evenly distributed).

It MUST have been siphoned off by the politically-connected cronyists, which MUST include the politicians. Stealing that much definitely warrants arrest.

That works. It's obvious too.

So the question is: Why not?

You guys are way better at this than me.... why not?

Kindly send the vastly needed donations for Peurto Rico relief to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary will be happy to oversee the construction of two huts for, say, $500 million.

Christ, when I served in the Army, the PR's were a net loss for us.   Yes, they dramatize everything, and jibber-jabber in their weird Spanish, and have no self-control.  I can not imagine living on an island full of them.

You remember them too eh? What a worthless bunch of losers. Don't know who was worse. The Ricans or fill in the blank.

If this is in fact true, all the parties involved need to be arrested immediately.

But wait, Hillary is guilty as sin and there is no indictment. Most of Obama's cabinet broke the law in spying on Trump..and you guessed it; there is no indictment and yet they spread absolutely false unsubstantiated rumor about Trump and Russia and there is a special prosecutor.

My contention has always been that if Trump does not indict Hillary and the Clinton Crime Family, he will not survive his first term because he will be impeached. 

MaxThrust's picture

" if Trump does not indict Hillary"

Trump won't do anything. The deepstate has something on Trump and that's why Bannon left the WH. He knows that Trump is compromised and will not attack any of the agents of the Deepstate. It's possible that Sessions is also implicated in some embarassing activity. He was suppose to idict all the swamp dwellers, go after the Pizza eaters, investigate Comey, find out who killed Seth Rich and we have not heard a word from him.

I alwasy expected the deepstate would eventually control Trump. The vote for Trump was  much better than the other option of course. The world breathed a sigh of relief when the AntiChrist Hillary did not win.

Chupacabra-322's picture

Democrats and Puerto Rican teamsters have orchestrated a stand-down of essential supply distribution throughout Puerto Rico in an effort to make President Trump appear ineffective at responding to the humanitarian crisis.

The Puerto Rico teamsters Union called “Frente Amplio,” a group of private contractors working for the federal government, are refusing to distribute key supplies throughout Puerto Rico because they’re seeking revenge over policies they view as hurtful to their industry set by the Puerto Rican governor.

“It’s just not true,” said Col. Michael Valle, commander of the federal relief effort in Puerto Rico. “As a Puerto Rican, I can tell you that the problem has nothing to do with the U.S. military, FEMA, or the DoD.”

“The aid is getting to Puerto Rico. The problem is distribution. The federal government has sent us a lot of help; moving those supplies, in particular, fuel, is the issue right now.”

Valle says they have the water, food, generators, medicine, and fuel, but they’re not being moved across the country as quickly as needed, and there’s ships full of supplies that still need to unload at the ports which remain full.

“It’s the lack of drivers for the transport trucks, the 18 wheelers,” Valle said. “Supplies we have. Trucks we have.”

“However, only 20% of the drivers show up to work.”

She is supposedly in bed with DiBlasio and trying to make it look like her fellow Commie will ride to her rescue. 

 

These people who take advantage of misery for political gain should be strung up asap

 Mayor Of San Juan- It is time for your to be FIRED- PEOPLE OF PR WILL NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE . YOU ARE A MURDER OF YOUR OWN PEOPLE. YOU ARE WORSE THAN HITLAR TO KILL YOUR OWN CITIZENS WITH STRAVATION AND INFLICTING SUFFERING.

Just another example of why women probably shouldn't be allowed to be politicians. Almost every one of them seems to be an idiot.

Sweet Cheeks's picture

Shimmy,
I am a woman and have to agree with you, that by and large, women should not be in politics. I will go even further and say they shouldn’t even have the vote since so few nowadays take the time to learn and understand the issues.

Among my relatives, their rational for voting for Hillary was both sexist and juvenile. Furthermore, these Communist- Nazi feminists are spewing testosterone hate for men, especially white men, and warping young boys.

Salzburg1756's picture

I have said the same, bro. Women are hopeless in politics. they should not be allowed in government or have the right to vote.

Or police or military or firemen or linemen or Any men for that matter. Some do smell pretty good though.

Trump should order their arrest. He can then tweet about that for at least 3 solid days.
