Media Praises San Juan Mayor For Being ‘Helpless,’ Handing Out ‘Solar-Powered Lanterns’

Published

The Washington Post is out with a scathing rebuttal to President Trump’s tweet criticizing the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who has reportedly changed her tune about the effectiveness of Trump’s response to the hurricane.

“Trump called San Juan’s mayor a weak leader. Here’s what her leadership looks like,” says the Post about Carmen Yulin Cruz.

Want to bet the “her” in that headline is the word they meant to accentuate?

“Politics is a rough game, and sometimes as females we are taught that you have to play nice,” she once said in an interview. “Sometimes you can’t play nice.”

As a race for mayor in her home town approached in 2012, she waffled publicly on whether to enter as a candidate.

At first she denied any plans to run. Once she entered the race, she strung together small coalitions to form her base of support. Such groups included the LGBT community, students, Dominican immigrants and taxi drivers.
With such allies, she managed to beat her opponent, three-time incumbent Jorge Santini.

All right, we get it we get it.

Here’s the part that really stands out:

The mayor herself felt relatively helpless — only able to do so much for her exhausted neighbors and frightened constituents.
“I know we’re not going to get to everybody in time,” she said. But she would try.
On her way to the interview, she said, a man asked her for a favor: “To tell the world we’re here.”
As tears filled her eyes, Cruz obliged.
“If anyone can hear us,” she told the reporter, “help.”
A week later, signs hung in basketball courts of Old San Juan: “SOS.” “Don’t abandon us.”
As darkness fell Thursday, families searched for water by the light of the moon and cellphones with dwindling batteries. They passed through a tunnel beneath a city wall and found at its exit a water tank left there by the city — a godsend.
And then they found their mayor.
Cruz hugged them as they came to her. She handed to each family a small solar-powered lantern — “a box of blessings,” she called it.
“Now this is life,” she told The Post.

So, she’s a good mayor because she’s “helpless” and giving out solar-powered lanterns?

SOLAR-POWERED LANTERNS?

The establishment media wants to make President Trump out to be the hurricane, and it’s not working. Leaders in a time of crisis should not be sending messages to the public victimizing themselves.

BLM Supporter Charged With Attempted Murder After Driving into Crowd of Trump Supporters in Parking Lot

Vicious attack.

Published

on

A woman has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after driving through a crowd of Donald Trump supporters demonstrating in a Yorba Linda, California parking lot.

The Trump supporters had arrived in the conservative-leaning California city to counter a Breonna Taylor Black Lives Matter event. Conservatives and BLM protestors had opposed one another on opposite sides of a street, with the former hailing insults and some projectiles at the former.

The victims of the attack weren’t blocking a public roadway, a dangerous tactic that ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter militants have frequently used. They were standing in a parking lot.

One man who was injured in the car attack suffered two broken legs.

The woman who was driving the white Nissan used in the attack was arrested by Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies shortly after the incident. Photography reveals she was wearing riot gear being used by nearby Black Lives Matter protestors who were active in the nominally conservative Orange County city.

The driver has been identified as Tatiana Turner of Long Beach. She’s been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.

It’s somewhat of a surprise that a leftist terrorist is being held accountable by the criminal justice system in California. It remains to be seen if Democrat-aligned prosecutors will attempt to drop the charges in the case, enabling Turner to get away with the vicious assault.
