  • The Logistic Plight of Puerto Rico?

    THE CRUX OF THE PROBLEM FOR ALL HUMANITARIAN RELIEF AFTER HURRICANE MARIA DESTROYED PUERTO RICO WAS LOGISTICS

    President Trump and FEMA’s  humanitarian response to PUERTO RICO is and was the most logistically challenged disaster relief  in U.S. History.

    SOME 3,200 FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STAFFERS, NATIONAL GUARDSMEN AND OTHER EMERGENCY PERSONNEL WERE ALREADY IN PUERTO RICO WHEN MARIA HIT THE GROUND

    Top Story? Trump doesn’t get it on Puerto Rico?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP (R)  GETS LOGISTICS, I GET LOGISTICS, EVEN CONGRESS GETS LOGISTICS

    ——————————————————————————————

    THE CRUX OF THE PROBLEM, WITH THE COMPLAINT’S ON TRUMP’S SLOW RESPONSE,

     IS AND WAS  THAT  SAN JUAN MAYOR CARMEN YULÍN CRUZ IS A MEMBER OF THE POPULAR DEMOCRATIC PARTY

    WHILE TRUMP AND HIS PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO GET TO THE CRUX OF A MATTER OR THE CRUX OF A PROBLEM, AND FIX IT

    THE  LIBERAL MEDIA AND DEMOCRATS ARE ALWAYS TRYING  TO DISTRACT.

    OCT 1, 2017,  I AM SO DAMNED DISGUSTED, THE CRUX OF THE PROBLEM AFTER HURRICANE MARIA  WAS LOGISTICS,

    THOSE MAD, LIBERAL, DEMOCRAT DOGS, REPRESENTED ON THE PUBLIC NEWS MEDIA SHARPENED THEIR TEETH AND ATTACKED PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR HIS SLOW RESPONSE TO THE HUMANITARIAN PLIGHT OF PUERTO RICO. (They infuriated me to the point that  I must post this comment)

    PRESIDENT TRUMP (R) GETS LOGISTICS, I GET LOGISTICS

    SAN JUAN MAYOR CARMEN YULÍN CRUZ (D)  SAID, “I CANNOT FATHOM THE THOUGHT THAT THE GREATEST NATION IN THE WORLD CANNOT FIGURE OUT LOGISTICS FOR A SMALL ISLAND OF 100 MILES BY 35 MILES”

    And  CRUZ (D)  SAID “WE ARE DYING, AND YOU ARE KILLING US WITH THE INEFFICIENCY AND THE BUREAUCRACY,”  San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said Friday at a news conference. “I cannot fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world cannot FIGURE OUT LOGISTICS for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles,” she said. “If we don’t get the food and the water into people’s hands, we are going to see something close to a genocide,” she said later.

    And  CRUZ (D)  SAID “I am asking the president of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives,”

    SOME 3,200 FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STAFFERS, NATIONAL GUARDSMEN AND OTHER EMERGENCY PERSONNEL WERE ALREADY IN PUERTO RICO WHEN MARIA HIT THE GROUND

     ONLY 18 PEOPLE DIED IN PUERTO RICO ATTRIBUTED TO HURRICANE MARIA

    ———————————————————————-

    TRUMP (R) HIT BACK TWEETED  BACK EARLY SATURDAY, ACCUSING  CRUZ (D)  OF “POOR LEADERSHIP ABILITY” AND CRITICIZING PUERTO RICAN OFFICIALS.

    WHAT EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS DID ABNER GÓMEZ, DIRECTOR OF PUERTO RICO’S EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY, DO PRIOR TO THE LAND FALL OF HURRICANE MARIA?

    ————————————————————————-

    LOGISTICS WERE THE PROBLEM…

    PRESIDENT TRUMP (R)  GETS LOGISTICS, I GET LOGISTICS, EVEN CONGRESS GETS LOGISTICS

    FOR THE IGNORANT (D’s) THAT DON’T  GET IT 

    LOGISTICS IS YOUR VOCABULARY WORD FOR TODAY.

    THE DETAILED COORDINATION OF A COMPLEX OPERATION INVOLVING MANY PEOPLE, FACILITIES, AND SUPPLIES.

    USED IN A SENTENCE….

    “THE LOGISTICS, THE DETAILED COORDINATION OF A COMPLEX OPERATION INVOLVING MANY (3.4 MILLION) PEOPLE, FACILITIES, OR SUPPLIES.  REQUIRED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FEMA, FOR PROVIDING HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE TO PUERTO RICO AFTER IT WAS FLATTENED BY HURRICANE MARIA.

    “THE LOGISTICS OF DEPLOYING SUPPLIES ORGANIZATION, PLANNING, PLANS, MANAGEMENT, ARRANGEMENT, ADMINISTRATION, ORCHESTRATION, COORDINATION, EXECUTION, HANDLING, RUNNING AND DEPLOYING SUPPLIES AND SUPPLYING MILITARY TROOPS IN THE FIELD AND EQUIPMENT

    LOGISTICS FOR A SMALL ISLAND OF 100 MILES BY 35 MILES OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN?

    Complicated BY RED TAPE Let’s add The JONES ACT the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, mandating that all goods and passengers must use  U.S. ships and FEMA hindered by a sprawling Dept. of  Homeland Security.

    SO, JUST HOW COMPLICATED WAS AND IS THE LOGISTICAL CHALLENGE FOR HUMANITARIAN RELIEF IN PUERTO RICA BEFORE AND AFTER HURRICANE MARIA’S DEVASTATION?  

    President Trump and FEMA’s  humanitarian response to PUERTO RICO is and was the most logistically challenged disaster relief  in U.S. History.

    HOW COMPLICATED?

    MANY OF THE SAME LOGISTIC ISSUES STYMIED BOTH LOCAL AND FEDERAL RESPONSE.

    EVEN WITH SOME 3,200 FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STAFFERS, NATIONAL GUARDSMEN AND OTHER EMERGENCY PERSONNEL ALREADY IN PUERTO RICO WHEN MARIA HIT THE GROUND

    EMERGENCY RESPONDERS WERE TRAPPED IN PLACE

    LOCAL EMERGENCY VEHICLES WERE TRAPPED IN PLACE

    WITH NO COMMUNICATION, NO CELL PHONES, NO INTERNET

    WITH NO TRAVEL, NO PASSABLE ROADS, NO AIRPORTS, NO VEHICLES, NO EQUIPMENT

    WITH NO ROADS, NO AIRPORTS ALL CLOSED LITTERED AND/OR WASHED OUT

    WITH ONLY EMERGENCY GAS GENERATORS

    EVENTUALLY, WAITING IN LINE FOR  GAS,  FOR EMERGENCY GENERATORS, NO GAS NO TRUCKS NO TRAVEL, PLUS A SHORTAGE OF DRIVERS, CONCERNS WITH INADEQUATE SUPPLIES OF  WATER AND FOOD

    THE COORDINATED EFFORTS OF THE PEOPLE, LOCAL, FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STAFFERS, NATIONAL GUARDSMEN AND OTHER EMERGENCY PERSONNEL PROVIDED HUMANITARIAN NECESSITIES FOR SUSTAINING LIFE.

    ONLY 18 LIVES WERE LOST IN PUERTO RICO

    KEEP ON TWEETING MY DEAR PRESIDENT (The truth will out)

    Trump tweets….. Sep 30, 2017

    “We have done a great job with the almost impossible situation in Puerto Rico,” Trump wrote on Sunday. The president added that besides “Fake News or politically motivated ingrates” everyone is starting to “recognize the amazing work that has been done.”

    INDEED, PRESIDENT TRUMPAND HIS ADMINISTRATION HAVE DONE A TRULY AMAZING  JOB RESPONDING TO THE HUMANITARIAN RELIEF IN PUERTO RICO.

    Trump also thanked the governor of Puerto Rico and “all of those who are working so closely with our first responders.”

    ——————————————————————————

    Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to “get Trump.” Not fair to FR or effort!

    4:48 AM – Sep 30, 2017

    Remembering that SAN JUAN MAYOR CARMEN YULÍN CRUZ IS A MEMBER OF THE POPULAR DEMOCRATIC PARTY……..

    TWEET SAN JUAN MAYOR CARMEN YULÍN CRUZ (D) : on Puerto Rico relief efforts: “I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell.”

    2:08 PM – Sep 29, 2017

    ————————————————————————————–

    TWEET TRUMP response: The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.

    4:19 AM – Sep 30, 2017

    ————————————————————————-

    INDEED, MAYOR CARMEN YULÍN CRUZ AS A  MEMBER OF THE POPULAR DEMOCRATIC PARTY, IS AS MAD AS HELL AND SHE MUST BE NASTY TO PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    Snippets:

    She has been characterized  as a Venezuelan-style socialist. Ms. Cruz, meanwhile, stitched together a coalition of students; lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups; and people simply fed up with the status quo, and won the election in 2012 and She was re-elected handily in 2016 against a lackluster opponent.

     She supports maintaining the island’s commonwealth (a $74 billion debt) status, rather than statehood. While it is in the minority in both state houses, it includes centrist and center-right

    members. But Ms. Cruz is firmly ensconced in the party’s small left wing. She allowed for the unionization of San Juan government health workers,

    and this year she supported a strike led by university students who opposed strict austerity measures after the island, staggering under $74 billion in debt, was forced to declare a form of bankruptcy.
