Michael is having the same devastating effect that Florence did
on the other coast, this summer's wildfires, media reports said, left equal measure of ruin & woe in their wake, as Florence/now Michael
hurricane season just about burned out -- jetstream patterns realigning, as they do every year

As Hurricane Florence hit the North Carolina Coast, the corrupt liberal media was running front page and multiple full-page articles trying to trash President Trump about Puerto Rico and Hurricane Maria response.

Those hit pieces failed to mention that FEMA has had and currently is running 7 disaster recovery operations in PR.

They also failed to mention that Puerto Rico is run by corrupt Democrat/Socialists and that a number of those politicians and government officials that have been arrested and are being prosecuted for corruption and fraud.


Okay:

FBI agents raid San Juan government offices as part of investigation into fraud, corruption

FBI agents this week raided the municipal offices in San Juan, Puerto Rico – rooting through documents and seizing digital records as part of a widespread investigation into fraud and obstruction of justice charges tied to the city government.

San Juan’s purchasing division was the target of the raid. And while FBI special agent Douglas Leff did not implicate Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz in the raid, he did tell local media that “we are going to follow the investigation where it leads us.”

Cruz tweeted Tuesday that she has instructed city officials to cooperate with federal authorities and said, “If someone has done something wrong, they should undergo due process and face the consequences of their actions.”

On Tuesday, more than two dozen agents entered the city’s Municipal Tower carrying briefcases, cameras and electronic equipment, Puerto Rican news agency El Nuevo Dia first reported.

Federal agents raided the third, fourth, 14th and 15th floors of the building, looking for documents related to corruption inside San Juan’s purchasing and contracting departments.

The raid was sparked by an anonymous tip called into the comptroller’s office over how the mayor’s office awards government contracts – specifically, a $4.7 million deal with construction company BR Solutions.

El Nuevo Dia claims the company is owned by a businessman who has made questionable political donations to several Puerto Rican politicians.

The raid comes a month after President Trump hinted at corruption in the U.S. territory and caused an uproar after questioning the number of people who died as a result of Hurricane Maria.

The bad blood between the two leaders often plays out on social media. Trump has called out Cruz’s management style while Cruz has hammered Trump on his response after Maria.

Earlier this year, local news outlets reported Cruz’s administration was being investigated for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of Hurricane Maria- a category-4 storm that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory more than a year ago.

The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated against for reporting “alleged irregular acts” to the local comptroller.

The report says Molina claims she was punished for reporting on the allegedly rigged system and that she was blocked from her right “to report wrongdoing in her capacity as a private citizen, not as a public employee.”

Shortly after Cruz became mayor, Molina claims a supply company was granted “preferred supplier” status which paid them more than three times what regular suppliers made. She also alleges that other city officials engaged in a corrupt scheme to steer business the preferred supplier’s way.

Concerns about Cruz are not new. There has been a growing backlash from frustrated residents who say they feel forgotten and charge the mayor’s personal political ambitions are coming at the expense of the very people she’s supposed to be representing.

“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto,” according to El Vocero de Puerto Rico.

Multiple calls to the Department of Justice’s San Juan field office were not returned.

Probably just as well - gotta get those pesky Puerto Ricans out of the way to build golf courses in "Puerto Trump" - good time to grab real estate there, rock bottom:

Donald Trump told a large, enthusiastic Keokuk, Iowa audience that he’s going to purchase the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in order to resolve its debt crisis and rename it 'Puerto Trump':

. . .Trump told his Keokuk audience, “One of the best things about being very rich is that you can buy whatever you want, and in this case, I want Puerto Rico.

“It’s a beautiful place, the weather’s great, and the people are already American, even though they speak Spanish.

“I have no idea how that happened, but so be it.”

'I’m buying Puerto Rico to make a point,” Trump told his Iowa followers. “You can speak Spanish. You can be an American. And you can play golf, too.”

After the rally, Trump told reporters that he intended to turn much of the island into a “really fabulous” 1,800-hole golf resort.

“We’ll have 100 courses,” he said, “stretching from one end of the island to another. I don’t think there’s really that much in the way. Maybe some chickens.”

Asked whether he thought that the Puerto Rican electorate would support his purchase of their island and turning it into a golf paradise for wealthy Americans, Trump snapped, “They don’t have a say in this. I’m assuming their debt. What happens next is up to me.”

President Trump does enjoy playing the corrupt liberal media. They are so easily Trumped.

It doesn't change the fact that the Democrat/Socialists that run Puerto Rico will be going to prison for corruption and fraud.

Just like his supporters, who believed every word. These comments were addressed to his followers, not the Corrupt Liberal Media, who simply reported what he said.

Your lack of empathy for the people of Puerto Rico who suffer because their Democrat/Socialist politicians are corrupt is noted.
The left just does not care about people.

Exactly how does mentioning some hot air bullsh!t Trump spewed denigrating Puerto Rico on the campaign trail show a lack of empathy?

Yeah, how dare anyone criticise Trump for his hurricane response, after he brought a roll of paper towels and everything.

Had you watched the speech you would know he was addressing/referring to "Fake News, you know those people in the back".

But no, you went headline trolling and picked a corrupt liberal media site.

You support the Democrat/Socialists who have caused the sever suffering of the people they are responsible for helping.

Ok ok , so you say his comments were purely bait for Fake News reporters. Even if so, how does that make this comment any less crass:

Trump: “It’s a beautiful place, the weather’s great, and the people are already American, even though they speak Spanish.

“I have no idea how that happened, but so be it.”

Or this one, if I posted something like this even totally sarcastic you would go for my jugular as a heartless lefty:

Trump: "I don’t think there’s really that much in the way. Maybe some chickens.”

Media bait or adlib provoca-crock, it is patently offensive and in grossly poor taste and displays the lack of empathy you are so sensitive to.

Then I make no comment of my own and post these callous statements by your cult leader and you attack me for lack of empathy! Unbelievable - you are totally brainwashed.

Are you selling flowers in airports to raise money for Trumptown? First in line at the KoolAid vat I bet.

Heads up y'all. Next weekend if things go the way they can go there will be a Gulf storm that crosses over Florida then heads up the Atlantic reaching N.Y. Sunday into Monday with Cat 1 winds and rain. North of metro NY would be the winds + snow.

This has got to stop.
