What Was Left Sitting on the Runway of an Airport in Puerto Rico Should Make American Taxpayers Extremely Angry

Published

on

If you happen to be a leftist or someone who for some crazy reason thinks that the government is the best hands to be in during an emergency situation, here’s a story that will absolutely change your mind.

Right now, there are over one million bottles of water sitting on an airport in Puerto Rick that have been there since last year. The bottles were sent by FEMA to aid victims in the area of Hurricane Maria.

Now the water is presumed unsafe to drink. Talk about a waste. If you’re an American taxpayer who had funds deducted from your paycheck that went to help these people, you should be very angry.

Abdiel Santana, a photographer who works for the Puerto Rico police, said that he first saw the water in October or November 2017. There are, apparently, at least hundreds of thousands, and perhaps millions, of water bottles sitting at an airport in Ceiba, Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria had hit the island last September.

On Tuesday, Santana posted pictures of the water bottles on his Facebook page, noting that it was still on the tarmac a year later.

CBS News correspondent David Begnaud reported that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had confirmed to him that it had delivered those specific water bottles to Puerto Rico last year. Once delivered, the water bottles were reportedly turned over to the U.S. General Services Administration in Puerto Rico. It is still unclear what happened next and why the water bottles were never moved or distributed.

It’s clear that somewhere, a breakdown occurred and someone’s government is the likely culprit behind the whole screw up.

This discovery comes hot on the heels of President Trump stating that FEMA’s work in Puerto Rick was an “incredible, unsung success.”

Perhaps we have different definitions of the term “success,” because it seems that allowing a million bottles of water to just sit there at a time when people needed them kind of feels like the opposite of success.

And yet, people want government controlled health care. Crazy.

Beto Seemingly Calls for WAR Over Mueller Report Secrecy

The left just had to find some way to make the idea of transparency seem sensational, didn’t they?

Beto O'Rourke

As the nation patiently awaits the findings of the Special Counsel report, a debate is raging. On both sides of the aisle, we are hearing that transparency is key.  Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General and self-proclaimed “heat shield” for Robert Mueller, has expressed his concerns over tarnishing the reputations of those not accused of a crime. The rest of America seems fairly well convinced, and rightly so, that there should be unfettered access to the report. And while this is undoubtedly a widely felt sentiment, the radical left just had to find a way to make it seem sensational. Cue 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are not made public, saying, “This is an unprecedented attack on this country and on our democracy, and we are owed the facts. And if we do not receive them, 243 years in, there’s nothing that guarantees us a 244th.” O’Rourke is undoubtedly suggesting that a Civil War or revolution could take place over something that everyone already wants. Not only have a number of democrats parroted the “everyone should get to see everything” line, but they’ve done so in complete agreement with Trump-appointed Attorney General Bill Barr. For Beto to go nuclear in this statement is beyond bizarre, and sounds more like a coaxed soundbite than his true sentiment on the subject.

Mueller Report Findings Expected by Congress Sunday

Monday morning’s water cooler chit chat has already been decided.

Is our long national nightmare actually over?  Well, that depends on who you ask today. For many, the completion of the Mueller report on Friday, without any additional indictments being suggest by the Special Counsel, was a huge win for President Trump.  It meant that there wasn’t evidence sufficient to bring charges against the President…perhaps. We should remember that the DOJ’s longstanding belief was that a sitting President could not be indicted. On the left side of the aisle, however, a tense wait has begun, with the Attorney General expected to hand off a summation of Mueller’s findings to Congress any minute. Attorney General William Barr was expected to release his first summary of Mueller’s findings on Sunday, people familiar with the process said, on what lawmakers anticipated could be a day of reckoning in the two-year probe into President Donald Trump and Russian efforts to elect him. Since receiving the report Friday, Barr has been deciding how much of it Congress and the public will see. Of course, for some democrats, this simply wouldn’t cut it. “I suspect that we’ll find those words of transparency to prove hollow, that in fact they will fight to make sure that Congress doesn’t get this underlying evidence,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, chairman of the House intelligence committee, said on ABC’s “This Week.” His plan: Ask for information and if that’s denied, “subpoena. If subpoenas are denied, we will haul people before the Congress. And yes, we will prosecute in court as necessary to get this information.” For now, we will just wait and see. We do know one thing for certain:  Monday morning around the water coolor is going to be a happenin’ spot.
