Pols And Celebs Now Blame Trump For Puerto Rico And Las Vegas

Trump in Puerto Rico

Once again these singers like Lady Gaga and Rhianna and others along with these late night talk show hosts show they may be good at what they do, but when it comes to politics they think they are so smart, hip and cool when they are actually political morons. Their latest attacks on President Trump include his handling of the Puerto Rico Hurricane and Las Vegas shooting. They post pictures of Trump playing golf along with mean tweets accusing him of playing golf while people in Puerto Rico are suffering when nothing could be further from the truth. They are all getting their news from the Destroy Trump media which they are all a part of. Swamp dwellers all.

Reporter Tobin Harshaw of Bloomberg News recently interviewed retired Navy Captain Jerry Hendrix. Now a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security, Hendrix served for decades both on the high seas and in high-level staff jobs, including with the Chief of Naval Operations’ Executive Panel and the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy’s Irregular Warfare Quadrennial Defense Review on Trump’s response to  the hurricane in Puerto Rico. Few people know more about military history than Hendrix, who has degrees from Purdue, Harvard, the Naval Postgraduate School and a Ph.D. from Kings College in London. Little wonder that in 2012 was named the service’s director of naval history.

TH: So, it seems like everybody has blasted Trump administration’s response to the Puerto Rico crisis. Has that criticism been fair?

 JH: No, I don’t think so. First of all, there was a fair amount of anticipatory action that is not being recognized. Amphibious ships including the light amphibious carriers Kearsarge and Wasp and the amphibious landing ship dock Oak Hill were at sea and dispatched to Puerto Rico ahead of the hurricane’s impact.

These are large ships that have large flight decks to land and dispatch heavy-lift CH-53 helicopters to and from disaster sites. They also have big well-decks — exposed surfaces that are lower than the fore and aft of the ship — from which large landing craft can be dispatched to shore carrying over 150 tons of water, food and other supplies on each trip. These are actually the ideal platforms for relief operations owing to their range of assets. The ships, due to their designs to support Marine amphibious landings in war zones, also have hospitals onboard to provide medical treatment on a large scale. That these ships were in the area should be viewed as a huge positive for the administration and the Department of Defense.

So far the United States has sent:

14 Sea Vessels
10 total commodity flights

Furthermore, they have opened 11 regional staging areas in Puerto Rico and 6 points of distribution in the Virgin Islands.

There are also10,000  first responders and troops sent there from the U.S. helping out which Trump has acknowledged since the media won’t. When you include all the troops and FEMA people there now there is a total of 15,000 people helping out.

Not only has the Governor of Puerto Rico praised Trump’s response, but the Mayor of the town NEXT to San Juan is commending our President!

Ships have been waiting at the docks because they don’t have the truck drivers to deliver  the food. So you dumbbell celebs don’t go saying Trump is playing golf when he should be handling the crisis. Trump is handling the crisis and very well too.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) ripped President Trump on Tuesday after he appeared to joke that Puerto Rico recovery efforts had “thrown our budget a little out of whack.”

“Mr. President,  enough. Stop blaming Puerto Rico for the storm that devastated their shores, and roll up your sleeves and get the recovery on track. That’s your job as president,” Schumer told reporters during a weekly leadership press conference.

Schumer added he didn’t remember Trump complaining that Texas “threw our budget out of whack after Harvey. Or Florida after Irma.”

Trump noted the enormous cost associated with the hurricane relief and rescue mission in Puerto Rico during a meeting with officials in San Juan earlier Tuesday.

“I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack because we spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico, and that’s fine,” Trump said. “We saved a lot of lives.”

Now, these same celebs like Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, Stephen Colbert, etc are all trying to blame the GOP and Trump for the Las Vegas incident by not having enough gun control. There are over 120 gun laws on the books now including extensive background checks. How many more gun laws do we need?  This guy brought his guns legally and turned them into illegal guns. If you confiscated every gun what would prevent some nut terrorist from getting a truck and turning it into a bomb and ramming it into a crowd like they did in France? Like country singer Kayla Jones said in my last article on the night it happened, “Less guns does not mean less terrorists.”

I really believe the main objective of these libs is to take everyone’s guns away. The end game is to seize guns, restrict gun ownership … ie.  repeal the 2nd amendment, so they can more easily control America. Just look at Hillary, it wasn’t even over yet and Hilary had her gun control speech all ready to go, THANK GOD SHE IS NOT PRESIDENT!!!

  1. Here is my gun control speech.

    To the Government – you do not need to take care of me! It is my unalienable RIGHT and my responsibility – NOT YOURS – to protect my life and my property! Your job, your ONLY PURPOSE, is to protect my RIGHTS, including my FIRST right to protect my life and my property!! My Property includes the heritage of my Constitution and the VIRTUES my country was founded upon – and its HISTORY!

    Many principalities and tyrants have tried to disarm citizens – EQUALLY HUMAN to those self appointed demigods – and it has always ended BADLY. So if you want my guns “COME AND GET THEM!” “The TRUTH is gonna fall on YOU!!!”

    To all the PUSSY COWARDS who demand the government take away my rights – not given to me by the Government in the first place – that are part of my very NATURE of being human;

    It isn’t my responsibility that some wacko NUT job who was at the least a DEMOCRAT and was probably an Islamic terrorist who HATED THIS COUNTRY, flipped out, and killed a bunch of USA “Proud to be an American” Country Music lover. Disarming me because you don’t have the GUTS to stand up for yourselves is not only wrong but EVIL. If you have no more fortitude than to wahhh, waaaaaahh, waaaaaaahh while sucking on the government nipple – you need to STARVE to death! And if some bad guy comes and snatches all you crackers from you because you are too much of a pussy to protect what belongs to you – SUFFER! You want my guns? “Come and get them!”

    When you FOOLS start your “revolution” keep a keen eye on just how Rugged Individuals react. You think it’s gonna be 1917 Russia all over again? ROFLMAO! When you figure out you don’t have the motivators – the true destitution of being oppressed by an Imperial STATE and the burden of an unwanted WAR with another Imperial State, sucking away what little you still have, your vaunted “revolution” is going to be like smoke in the wind and you will be a consummated JOKE.

    But Gun laws or no Gun laws I will protect my life and my property – and RIGHTIOUSLY so!
