(((Bernie Sanders:))) Trump’s Pushback Against Mestizo Mayor of San Juan is Racist, “unspeakable”

You didn’t expect Bernie to praise Trump, did you?

CNN

Washington (CNN)Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday rebuked President Donald Trump’s decision to attack the mayor of San Juan on Twitter as Puerto Rico continues to struggle after being hit by back-to-back hurricanes.

“It is unspeakable,” Sanders told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

Sanders drew a contrast between Trump and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, saying Trump was “speaking from his fancy golf club, playing golf with his billionaire friends, attacking the mayor of San Juan, who is struggling to bring electricity to the island, food to the island, water to the island, gas to the island.”

Hey Bern, how is Madam Mayor “struggling” to do all the things you list? Is she pedaling away on a bicycle attached to a generator? Did she make a run for a grocery store in Miami to pick up groceries for the islanders? What the hell is her so-called struggle all about? Tell us, Bern. We want to know.

Sanders also said it would be fair for people to wonder if race was a factor in Trump’s response to the devastation in Puerto Rico.

“Given the President’s history on race, given the fact that he, a few months ago told us that there were good people on both sides when neo-Nazis were marching in Charlottesville, yeah, I think we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people of Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated the people of Texas or Florida,” Sanders said.

Haha, Bernie. I’m not going to do the research for you that should have done before opening your vile Jewish yap, but Houston and many areas in Florida hit by the recent hurricanes have more black folks than does Puerto Rico.

Furthermore, you dumbass, not everyone who marched in Charlottesville was a “neo-Nazi.” You Jews see Nazis everywhere. Who’s a Nazi, Bernie? Anyone who disagrees with you!

San Juan Mayor a “political hack” says ex-Puerto Rico Official, While Trump Hails “tremendous progress”

A new wrinkle has been introduced into the feud between Carmen Yulin Cruz, the Mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico, and President Donald Trump.

An explanation has been offered to shed light on why Cruz has attacked Trump’s response to the hurricane damaged island. That explanation goes beyond the usual blaming others for one’s own failures.

The Hill

Former Puerto Rico Attorney General Jose Fuentes on Sunday took aim at San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, accusing her of attacking President Trump and using hurricane relief efforts to lay the groundwork for a gubernatorial bid.

“The mayor of San Juan is a political hack,” Fuentes said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Fuentes accused Cruz of making an about-face, saying she supported Trump until her political adviser suggested the idea of running for governor.

“She is singing the praises of the president until her political adviser, [Rep.] Luis Gutiérrez from Chicago, got there and brought her the t-shirts and said, ‘Hey you want to run for governor, if she wants to run,” he continued until the anchor cut him off, pointing to audio issues.

The president launched a series of tweets attacking Cruz early Saturday, accusing the mayor of exhibiting poor leadership in the midst of the recovery efforts and claiming Puerto Rican leaders want the federal government to do everything for them.

His tweets came one day after Cruz issued an emotional plea for help, saying people are dying on the American territory and partially blaming stalled recovery efforts on the federal government’s inefficiency and red tape.

“I will do what I never thought I was going to do. I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency,” Cruz said during a press conference.

The Trump administration has come under fire from critics who say it is failing to help the island as it struggles with widespread power outages, collapsed infrastructure and ongoing shortages of water and supplies.

The president is scheduled to travel to Puerto Rico on Tuesday after Hurricanes Maria, Harvey and Irma tore through the region in the last two months.

MADAM MAYOR LOOKING LESS GLAMOROUS THAN ABOVE.

As this piece was being put together, The Hill published a new story that shows that Trump isn’t going to be tagged a failure without a fight.

President Trump hailed the “tremendous progress” in Puerto Rico as he returned to the White House on Sunday.

“We’re doing really well on Puerto Rico. I’ll be going there on Tuesday. Tremendous progress being made,” Trump told reporters, according to a pool report.

“We’re getting the roads open, we’re getting a lot of things done — really at a record clip. So we’re very happy with that. And I’ll be going there on Tuesday.”

Trump made the comments as he returned from a weekend at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Earlier Sunday he dedicated the trophy at the Presidents Cup golf tournament to victims of the recent hurricanes that have hit the U.S.

Trump’s administration is facing criticism for not doing enough to help Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria, which hit the island more than a week ago.

The territory is largely without power and more than half of the island doesn’t have access to drinking water. Residents are facing food shortages and a collapsed infrastructure, and local officials say the situation is becoming a humanitarian crisis.

Trump and officials in his administration have defended their response, saying they have sent resources and assistance to the island in response to the natural disaster.

In my younger days, my family and I weathered Hurricane Betsy, which hit South Louisiana hard. We were without power and water for two weeks. That was in a place where the officials were reasonably competent. We missed having our modest little home from being flooded by a couple of city blocks. Hundreds of homes were under water for a week. Our shingles were blown off the roof, though. Roofers from all over the south descended on the area, smelling work. They found it.

It takes time to fix hurricane damage. Having a publicity hound mayor doesn’t help get the job done.

Florida Man Has His “Gestapo” Moment of the Day

DON’T PICK UP THE POWER LINES, KIDDIES.

One of the universal failings of the American writer is the tendency to insert “Nazi” references into every piece that involves a tyrannical action by the State. How about giving Mao and Stalin equal time for a change.

Other than the Nazi references, this libertarian piece by Tom di Lorenzo is very revealing of the bad side of the American cop.

Lew Rockwell

It was a beautiful morning here on the east coast of South Florida, especially since the hurricane shifted west, and we are no longer even in “the cone of uncertainty.” We’re still supposed to have 50-75 mph winds tonight, but no “hurricane of the century.”

The state and local governments here are in full Gestapo mode, going on television to constantly bark out orders: Leave now! Don’t buy too much gas! Be nice to your neighbors! Curfew!! Get off the streets! Don’t pick up any fallen power lines! Stay away from the snakes and alligators! No liquor sales! Shut down your business — now!

Thinking that I was living in America and not Nazi Germany, I set out for a walk on the beach around 9 AM since I expected to be cooped up for a day or two. I couldn’t get to the beach, however, since the police had blocked the bridge over the intracoastal waterway, which is about a quarter mile from the beach. You could get to the beach by showing the constables the proper papers proving that you lived in a house at the beach, but no one else could.

So I walked elsewhere, and at the end of my walk I noticed that the Sunnoco station in my neighborhood was still open (all other stores are closed and hurricane shuttered). So I went inside to buy a bottle of water and, before I could pay, a local cop barged in and yells at the owner over the heads of the customers in line: “Shut down now! Curfew!” This was before noon and there is a curfew, but not until 3 PM. So all the customers who were making their last minute beer-and-chips/hurricane-party purchases had to leave and the proprietor had to shut everything down and lock the doors while the cop remained there to supervise.

Most people in my town are at home or have left, so walking around, it seems that there is a police car prowling every block. Talk about easy overtime pay.

American politicians barking the same orders over and over and over reveals their petty, do-gooder, despotic nature. It is disgusting how many times the same crap has been repeated over and over the last few days by mayors and police chiefs, as well as the governor of Florida.

We are not children, most of us. The dummies too stupid to not pick up downed power lines and pet alligators deserve what they get.

DO NOT PET THE ALLIGATORS, DUMMIES.

Mystery: Ocean Disappears as Far as the Eye Can See After Hurricane Irma (Video)

I’ve never seen this before. Have you?

Growing up in New Orleans, I’ve tracked many a hurricane, but never has the deep water simply vanished extending the shoreline far out to what used to be the sea.

Washington Post

As a meteorologist, there are things you learn in textbooks that you may never see in person. You know they happen theoretically, but the chances of seeing the most extraordinary weather phenomena are slim to none.

This is one of those things — a hurricane strong enough to change the shape of an ocean.

Twitter user @Kaydi_K shared this video Saturday afternoon, and I knew right away that even though it looked as though it couldn’t be possible, it was absolutely legit.

“I am in disbelief right now…” she wrote. “This is Long Island, Bahamas and the ocean water is missing!!!”

Basically, Hurricane Irma is so strong and its pressure is so low, it’s sucking water from its surroundings into the core of the storm.

Best comment I’ve seen: Hurry Moses! Get the Hebrew children over to Florida before Pharaoh gets to Nassau.

The wind on Long Island in the Bahamas is from the southeast to the northwest on Saturday. On the northwest side of the island, it would be blowing the water away from the shoreline.

It also may be experiencing the effects of what I call the hurricane “bulge.” In the center of the storm, where there is extreme low pressure, water is drawn upward. Low pressure is basically a sucking mechanism — it sucks the air into it, and when it’s really low, it can change the shape of the surface of the ocean. As the storm draws water toward the center, it gets pulled away from the surroundings.

In any case, this isn’t the sign of a tsunami. The water will return to Long Island, and it probably won’t rush back with any great force. It will probably be back by Sunday afternoon.

NY Times U.S. Map: How Long Would it Take for Your Location to Have 50 Inches of Rain?

Houston received 50 inches of rain from Hurricane Harvey. In many locations it would take a year or longer to reach that rainfall total. If you’re in the USA, what’s it look like in terms of rainfall where you are?

The wettest part of the U.S. appears to be along the Pacific Northwest coast.

France’s Charlie Hebdo Mocks Texas Flood Victims as Nazis

The French humor magazine Charlie Hebdo’s cover you see here shows how ignorant the left is. Houston, hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey’s flooding, is disgustingly diverse and mainly devoid of conservatives, much less Nazis. It’s a city of Nogs, fags, trannies, wetbacks, gooks, and other assorted nonwhite immigrants.

When Charlie Hebdo was attacked by Muslim terrorists America responded with “Je suis Charlie.” We take that back.

Townhall

French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is being criticized for its newest cover calling the people of Texas neo-Nazis. Its latest cover features an image of half-submerged Nazi flags and Hitler salutes, with the phrase “Dieu Existe! Il a noyé tous les néo-Nazis du Texas” as the caption.

The cover translates to “God Exists!” on the top, with “He drowned all the neo-Nazis in Texas!”

I mean, really?

Granted, this is Charlie Hebdo, and they’re not exactly known for kindness, tact, or any sort of respect, but really? This is low, even for a magazine that specializes in low.

People were quick to remind Hebdo that the world (including the United States) stood by the publication when their offices were attacked by Islamic terrorists, and that the U.S. military did a pretty good job eliminating the Nazis during WWII.

On its face, the cover makes very little sense. Houston is not a Republican city, the people of Texas most definitely are not neo-Nazis, and people of all races and creeds and colors were affected by the flooding and the storm. (Weather doesn’t discriminate!) This just is a cheap shot at a group of people who are already suffering, and it’s pretty tasteless.

Black Owners Condemned After Leaving Pit Bull to Drown in Hurricane Flooding

CBS Local DFW

SPRING (CBSDFW.COM) – A dog owner accused of abandoning his dog found frightened and alone atop a car surrounded by rising Harvey flood waters wants him back.

CBS11 reporter J.D. Miles shared video of the pit bulls’ plight, which quickly went viral. People were outraged by the implication that his owners left their 3-year-old dog named “Blue” behind.

But Blue’s owner Charles Rogers says rescuers are the ones to blame – not him.

DEY DINDU NUFFINS.

“My wife and I were thinking the rescuers were just going to go back and get him,” says Rogers, who feels like people are unfairly attacking him.

Rescuers gave the Rogers family only a few short minutes to evacuate their flooded neighborhood the day Blue was left behind.

“I just jumped into survival mode,” describes Rogers.

He says he grabbed one of his small dogs but agonized over leaving Blue.

Blue also jumped into survival mode and somehow found his way over an eight foot backyard fence, and atop the car where Miles found him, hunched over wearing a forlorn expression.

Blacks should not be allowed to own pit bulls. I hope that the rescuers fight to keep him until a new home can be found for Blue.
