Exposing Mainstream Media lies about Puerto Rico & The US Virgin Islands! The Alt-Left Media has no shame, no credibility. It is just a propaganda tool!

Dispelling The Myth That Trump Is Ignoring Puerto Rico & The US Virgin Islands

This is what real journalism looks like:

I’ll start off with the most credible source of this information; the Governor of Puerto Rico who served as a Hillary delegate at one point and is a Democrat. The Governor has been fighting back against this myth that Puerto Rico has been abandoned by the Federal government and praising Trump’s support for the territory. https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/09/25/puerto-ricos-governor-dismantles-media-attacks-trumps-response-hurricane-irma/

Trump was on Twitter as recently as yesterday trying to bring more attention to the fact that Puerto Rico, despite being a US territory, is way behind US states in forms of infrastructure and finances. They simply have too much debt to deal with to financially handle a disaster of this scale on their own. (For those that didn’t know, this is one of the chief reasons they are not a State.) https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/912478274508423168

FEMA has been operating on a 24 hour schedule in Puerto Rico and the USVI since at least 23 September.

FEMA is being supported by the Defense Logistics Agency, USNORTHCOM, US Navy, and USCG. Two USCG cutters are conducting port assessments of St. John and St. Thomas. The port of San Juan was reopened by 23 September. FEMA has been delivering approximately 100,000 meals per day to St. Croix, the SS Wright delivered 1,100,000 meals and 1,000,000L of water by 5am 23 September, Two more shipping barges delivered another 1,200,000L of water, 31 generators, and 6,000 cots to St. Thomas. https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2017/09/23/federal-government-moving-resources-support-puerto-rico-and-us-virgin

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an order on September 24 authorizing FEMA and DoD to install and operate temporary water treatment units to provide clean water in the U.S. Virgin Islands to address concerns about a lack of clean alternative water supplies.

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the DoD conducted medical evacuations for more than 150 patients from the islands to the continental United States. Medical evacuations from the islands will continue. A U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) mobile communications team arrived in Puerto Rico to help improve communications across the storm-impacted area.

Thanks to the Coast Guard’s efforts, the mission-critical port of San Juan has reopened (with restrictions and for daylight transit only). The port is a crucial lifeline for Puerto Rico, which gets most of its supplies from the U.S. mainland. Early reports indicate that about 80 percent of the island’s agriculture was wiped out in the storm, which will raise the importance of food aid and commercial food shipments. In the USVI, most ports on St. Thomas and St. Croix have reopened with restrictions, along with Cruz Bay on St. John. http://www.maritime-executive.com/article/recovery-effort-ramps-up-in-puerto-rico

Before Maria USCG assets and personnel were strategically positioned with relief supplies, including water, in areas near the USVI and Puerto Rico.

Air crews from USCG Sector Southeast in Miami are being deployed for search and rescue missions, and other resources will be delivered as needed by further assets and personnel.

Coast Guard personnel have been responding to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma and to Hurricane Maria for days.

Joke Of The Day: Cold Water Cleaning

Joke Of The Day: Cold Water Cleaning John went to visit his 90-year-old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of West Virginia. After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John’s grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.

However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, “Are these plates clean?”

His grandfather replied, “They’re as clean as cold water can get em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!”

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, “Are you sure these plates are clean?”

Without looking up the old man said, “I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don’t you fret, I don’t want to hear another word about it!”

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl, and wouldn’t let him pass.

John yelled and said, “Grandpa, your dog won’t let me get to my car.”

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted, “Coldwater, go lay down now, yah hear me!!!”

Famous “Fake News” writer Paul Horner found dead outside Phoenix

Hillary Suggests Trump Might Kill Journalists. Next Day Paul Horner Turns Up Dead

Well, his first two cited “Fake News” stories may be true. Hmm. Where was Hillary’s death squad this week?

From the AP: A leading purveyor of fake news in the 2016 presidential election has died outside Phoenix at the age of 38.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Casey said Tuesday authorities discovered Paul Horner dead in his bed on Sept. 18.

Casey said the Maricopa County medical examiner performed an autopsy which showed there were no signs of foul play. He said Horner had a history of prescription drug abuse and that “evidence at the scene suggested this could be an accidental overdose.”

Horner was known for writing false stories and disseminating internet hoaxes that often went viral on Facebook and hoodwinked thousands of people.

They included a story falsely claiming President Barack Obama was gay and a radical Muslim, and another saying protesters were being paid thousands of dollars to demonstrate at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies.

Hillary Clinton Compares Trump To Putin: “Hopefully” He Hasn’t Ordered Killing Of Journalists

Yeah, you gotta draw the line at murdering journalists. Oh wait, does anybody else recall Hillary asking Obama, about Julian Assange, “Can’t we just drone this guy?”

This incredible footage shows the moment a huge bird of prey swoops in to pick up a fishy dinner from a boat.

 
Ashton Philips caught the moment an Eagle swooped onto his fishing boat. He was fishing in British Columbia when the daredevil bird swooped down and grabbed a salmon he’d caught and then flew away.
