Audio has emerged from a Puerto Rican police officer alleging that San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz is not allowing supplies to be distributed to the citizens affected by the nation’s hurricane.
Mayor Cruz is accusing President Trump of doing a poor job attending to the needs of the Puerto Rican nation. Trump says that 10,000 U.S. federal workers are on the ground in the nation of Puerto Rico and that Mayor Cruz is doing a bad job, changing her tune on Trump due to Democratic Party pressure.
Supplies are not reaching the people. A prominent truckers union linked to left-wing political parties across Latin America is reportedly intentionally blocking the deliveries from the Port of San Juan, according to multiple accounts.
A self-identified police officer currently in Guaynabo called into a Spanish-language radio program to describe what happened. Jennifer Puentes shared footage of the emotional, stirring interview.
The female police officer said, “I need to pass this information out because the stuff that is being brought from the U.S. it is not being distributed. They are not allowing the Puerto Rican people to receive the donations.”
“The mayor Carmen Yulin is not allowing anyone to distribute…We need…What us Puerto Ricans need is that the U.S. armed forces to come in and distribute the aid,” she said.
She said that people in Florida, and “artists” are helping with the relief efforts, but she does not know how many others are helping due to having “very limited communication” on the island.
“What else are we going to do? You tell me, what else are we going to do?”
“But 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,” she said.
“We want the U.S. to come in.”
“The governor is just doing a show, is all a show.”
The Times-Picayune confirms that “Mountains of aid for Puerto Rico languish on docks in San Juan after Hurricane Maria.”
The paper reports:
“Distributors for big-box companies and smaller retailers are unloading 4,000 20-foot containers full of necessities like food, water and soap this week at a dock in Puerto Rico’s capital operated by Crowley Maritime Corp. In the past few days, Tote Maritime’s terminal has taken the equivalent of almost 3,000. The two facilities have become choke points in the effort to aid survivors of Hurricane Maria.
“There are plenty of ships and plenty of cargo to come into the island,” said Mark Miller, a spokesman for Crowley, based in Jacksonville, Florida. “From there, that’s where the supply chain breaks down — getting the goods from the port to the people on the island who need them.”
“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,” said U.S. Col. Michael Valle, according to The Huffington Post.
“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”…
$1.9 Trillion Stimulus Package Passes the House With $15 Minimum Wage
The bill includes $1,400 stimulus checks.
The House of Representatives passed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus package in a near party-line vote on Friday night. Two Democrats deflected, declining to vote for the bill.
The bill includes a provision to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. This provision is likely to be removed in the Senate, with the Senate parliamentarian ruling that a spending and appropriations package can’t include a minimum wage increase.
Republican critics of the bill have alleged that the legislation is weighted towards ‘pork’ spending, with hundreds of billions delegated in the spending package that have little to do with the coronavirus. Senators such as Mitt Romney have pointed out that the bill provides billions in funding to state governments such as California, which incurred a budgetary surplus in 2020. Critics have alleged that a third stimulus package should be more directly targeted, with the federal government incurring the largest budget deficit in the history of the United States in 2020.
The package’s main provision is a round of $1,400 stimulus checks for all taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in their 2019 tax return.
Senate Democrats are determined to pass the large stimulus package using budget reconciliation, a process that would only require 50 votes to pass. Biden’s voter base have become increasingly impatient, with the Democrat having previously promised that stimulus checks would be issued immediately after his ascension to the presidential throne.
If left-wing pork projects prevent Biden from delivering on his game-changing campaign promise of stimulus checks, his presidency will be exposed as little more than a false bill of goods sold by the feckless establishment since the beginning.
