Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez dismissed the island's director of emergency management after a warehouse was discovered with supplies dating back to Hurricane Maria. Video published Saturday showed a warehouse in the southwestern city of Ponce filled with supplies, including thousands of cases of water, believed to have been from when the hurricane struck the island in 2017. Hurricane Maria left 2,975 people dead and caused major problems in Puerto Rico for months, including power outages and shortages of food, water and medicine. "There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to bring help to the south, and it

It was more fun to blame Trump for no supplies than to actually distribute what was provided.

ABC must have been very unhappy to have to report that, once again, Trump is right and the Enemedia were and are wrong. Free PR! Let them go, and STOP subsidizing this 1890s ERROR.

In 2017 we met a National Guardsman who was returning from Puerto Rico during the hurricane recovery. His job was to stand next to a huge pile of telephone poles so that they wouldn’t be stolen. He told us that everything that wasn’t watched or immediately distributed was stolen. The thieves mysteriously knew the exact location and contents of every shipment.

A hundred semi loads, according to one estimate. A large warehouse in Ponce, where I used to work, filled with tarps, water, diapers, food, radios, blankets and much more - that never was delivered by the corrupt losers in PR. Again, Trump was right, the leftists and Enemedia were lying.

One of Barack Obama’s top advisers as president says voters have a ‘chilling’ lack of interest in the impeachment case, which he blames on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ‘cynical calculation’. David Axelrod, Mr Obama’s former chief strategist, met with a focus group of Democratic voters in Chicago on Friday in which he says impeachment “didn’t come up” until more than an hour into the discussion. When it did, the voters said they were “ready to move on” because the outcome of the Senate trial - in which Mr Trump’s team began his defence on Saturday - was a foregone

Elizabeth Warren hasn’t even lost yet and she’s already started the stages of grief. Denial. Those polls showing Warren getting her clock cleaned by Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in Iowa and New Hampshire are wrong. We’re gonna pull a John Kerry. Kerry’s campaign was written off in 2004, then he came back to win Iowa and New Hampshire, remember? Anger. Warren’s post-debate venting at Bernie Sanders — refusing to shake his hand and accusing him of calling her a liar on national TV — would certainly indicate she is mad at the Vermont senator for stealing the progressive mantle

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) surged ahead of his rivals to join former Vice President Joe Biden in a statistical dead heat atop the 2020 Democratic presidential primary field, according to a new poll. Sanders now leads the field with 27 percent support from Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, based on the CNN national poll released Wednesday. Sanders’s support jumped 7 points since last month, placing him in a virtual tie for first with Biden, who is at 24 percent. Sanders’s 3-point lead is within the poll’s margin of error.

SEATTLE - Seattle could see more tiny home villages pop up across the city. On Wednesday, City Council members will discuss a proposal to add dozens more sanctioned homeless encampments. The proposal would allow 40 sanctioned encampments, each having up to 100 residents. The city's legislation would exempt churches and religious groups from acquiring a land use permit, making it easier to set up the tiny home villages and run them.

OAKLAND — Following a unanimous vote by the city council Tuesday night, Oakland has now become the first city in California to ban criminal background checks on potential renters. “Indescribable emotions and feelings,” said John Jones III of Oakland, who got out of prison in 2012 and struggled to find a place to live in Oakland despite his well-paying job as an aviation mechanic. Jones said he’s among the many who left prison only to end up on the streets, contributing to Oakland’s homeless crisis.

Plame is running in the Democratic primary to replace Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, the highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker in the House, in the state's 3rd Congressional District, home to 15 Pueblo tribes and the Navajo and Jicarilla Apache nations, with a 41% Hispanic and 19% Native American population.

New York - The Pentagon has announced that 34 US service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries resulting from the Iranian missile attack on US forces in Iraq earlier this month, in spite of Donald Trump's downplaying of the wounds as "headaches". The strike came following Mr Trump's decision to kill Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, and the US said at the time that no American personnel were injured. Since then, Mr Trump has acknowledged that the Americans had been injured, but downplayed their significance. According to the Pentagon, eight of the service members were flown to the US from Germany for treatment, nine are still receiving treatment in Germany,

President Trump on Friday becomes the first U.S. President to attend the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., a march he previously addressed via video, a march sure to be ignored by the lamestream media or downplayed as a gathering of white supremacists. It reflects his belief that every human life begins at conception and is a gift from God and reflects the fear, an unspoken motive for impeachment, that Trump will get to appoint more Supreme Court justices forming a majority to overturn the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade, another SCOTUS decision which, like Dred Scott, declared an entire class of people as less than human.

The off-field spat began Thursday evening on Twitter, when Tennessee GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn quoted the commanding officer of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as saying that Vindman was a "political activist in uniform.”
