Dec 8 - Ben Carson Illegally Withholding Aid to Puerto Rico
 

 
EDIT: THE ARTICLE IS ADMITTEDLY BIASED BUT THE FACTS ARE STILL TRUE. I LINKED TO ANOTHER NEWS SOURCE AT THE END FOR A MORE UNBIASED, STRAIGHT FORWARD ANALYSIS

Cuz of course he is . fu*k these people

Donald Trump and Ben Carson are refusing to release the aid in direct opposition to the congressional mandate. HUD officials even told the House Appropriations subcomittee that they just won’t do it. Not only did HUD officials admit that they are willfully defying the law, but they also admitted that they have “no statutory authority” to miss such a deadline.

So why are they doing it? Because laws don’t matter in Trumpland, and Trump hates Puerto Rico.

Just as Trump does with California, another place he hates, where in the past two years raging wildfires have k*lled 87 people and burned more than 2.15 million acres. Trump is now threatening to withhold federal aid for firef*ghters for no other reason than his animosity towards the state and its people. The official reason Trump gives is that they wouldn’t listen to his brilliant idea of “raking the forests,” which is along the same lines of his idea of nuking hurricanes. It’s a stupid idea from an uneducated man. Yet the real reason is hatred.

HUD officials are parroting Trump’s ignorant claim that Puerto Rico is too corrupt to receive federal aid. Carson even had the unmitigated gall to claim that HUD isn’t releasing the funds because Puerto Rico is incapable of managing the funds. Yeah, the same guy who spent more than $31,000 of HUD money to buy a dining room table for his office:

The purchase of the custom hardwood table, chairs and hutch came a month after a top agency staff member filed a whistle-blower complaint charging Mr. Carson’s wife, Candy Carson, with pressuring department officials to find money for the expensive redecoration of his offices, even if it meant circumventing the law.

I don’t know what is more outrageous, that a dining room table can cost tens of thousands of dollars or why the f*** anyone needs a “dining table” in their office. Unlike Ben Carson, Trump’s own inspector general report cleared Puerto Rico of corruption charges. He found no evidence of widespread corruption within Puerto Rico’s housing agency. Trump has no legitimate reason to withhold the money, and certainly no legal standing to do so. Yet he’s doing it anyway because screw you.

Trump’s contempt for Puerto Rico is well known. He has mocked the survivors, made fun of their accents, completely lied about relief efforts, and back in March said he didn’t want “another single dollar going to the island.” Unfortunately, congressional Democrats have taken little action. They could threaten to withhold agency funds, or take Trump to court. Instead, they’ve essentially just pleaded with Trump to do the right thing:

These are Americans down on the island. Over 3.1, 3.2 million people who every day face the same indignation from your inaction, your anger against the island. It’s time to finally be Presidential and do the right thing for my brothers and sisters on the island.

—Rep. Darren Soto (D-FL)

If Democrats haven’t learned by now, they never will: Trump cannot be shamed into doing the right thing.

We are talking about a man who has no trouble taking brown children from their parents and putting them in cages. He holds Puerto Rico beneath contempt, and that indifference won’t change unless and until the island gets real political power. Democrats need to be focused on getting Puerto Rico statehood. Without political power, the island colony will continue to suffer at the whims of a bigoted president.

President Trumpís lawyer Rudy Giuliani met on Thursday with a KGB-trained member of Ukraineís parliament to discuss a possible investigation into Hunter Biden, son of former vice president Joe Biden.


Andriy Derkach, the Ukrainian lawmaker who was trained at the Dzerzhinsky Higher School of the KGB in Moscow, posted on Facebook that he had met with Giuliani and had urged U.S. congress members to investigate Hunter Biden further. Derkachís father Leonid was a KGB operative who later became the head Ukrainian intelligence, and who was fired in 2004 shortly before Ukraineís Orange Revolution.

No, you really don't. But like most things in life you've convinced yourself that you're right when you're wrong.



But just to humor myself a little more...


Why was trump trying to get Ukraine to announce they were investigating Biden? He didn't care if they actually investigated him, he just wanted Zelenskiy to announce it. Why do you think that was? And why didn't a single Republican or one of the many law professors use this treaty as a defense that trump was acting within legal limits?

Of course not, he doesn't give a fu*k about Hunter Biden. Trump's own kids and Giuliani's kid are guilty of the exact same sh*t.

its pretty simple common sense lets a*sume they actually wanted to stop corruption
so you question the integrity of their governance and the only way they can earn your trust is if they open an investigation into an american politician and his son ?

wait i thought they were corrupt why would you trust them to investigate a traffic ticket ?

no less have a foreign government investigate an american national
our government has a system to check for corruption before releasing funds and ukraine had already passed it. there is nothing you can say to a trumpsucker they are mindless sycophants

Who gives a sh*t about a ling time ago we are talking today. And that is not the case now.






While they do grow some fruit and veggies they are not a power house grower for the U.S and even if they were it is not like we get it for free. P.R does not exclusively grow anything we are not able to get from anywhere else.


All we do is continually throw money at P.R and get told we are not doing enough.


So fu*k em. Let them have it and run their country as they please and stop sending money to them.

Miss me with that they are akin to us. They are so important that they can not vote in our elections and have their own government. You got it right we colonized THEIR COUNTRY.

Give them a couple billion and wish them the best and let them fix their country. Because between their corrupt government and our corrupt government its a absolute waste of money and time.

In other words you realized what I said is true because you can't answer the questions I asked you. Everyone can see you once again avoiding answering common sense questions.
