No Water in Puerto Rico Meanwhile FEMA Forgot They Had 20,000 Pallets of Battled Water Stacked Away




20,000 pallets of bottled water left untouched in storm-ravaged Puerto Rico

By Bill Weir, CNN

Ceiba, Puerto Rico (CNN)The stockpile of bottled water stretches down an unused runway in Ceiba. Case after case, pallet piled upon pallet, blue tarps and plastic glinting in the sun. 
The emergency supplies were brought in by FEMA in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which smashed the island and left its residents without power, without roofs and without running water. 
Federal officials commandeered the area in the far east of the island last fall as a staging ground, collecting the water and containers full of blue tarps to patch damaged and destroyed roofs in surrounding neighborhoods. 
And there the supplies sat. And sat. Storm survivors were collecting spring water from the mountains for cooking and bathing, even with the threat of disease that brought

 Without running water at home, many people resorted to collecting supplies from mountain springs and streams, as here in Las Marias last October.

The water -- destined for communities in need -- will now be returned to FEMA, an official says.

    Man’s application rejected as authorities say he did not walk, dress or act like he was gay

    This story appeared on the Irish Times and written Derek Scally 
    An Afghan man seeking asylum in Austria because he is homosexual has had his application rejected because he didn’t appear sufficiently gay for the migration authorities.
    The 18-year-old man sought refugee status in 2016 because he said he faced persecution in Afghanistan. The application was refused because, in the words of the official, “neither your walk, your affectations nor your clothes give even the slightest indication that you could be homosexual”.
    The asylum case-worker noted that the man, who was living in a hostel with other underage migrants, had been involved in fights, indicating “a potential for aggression . . . that would not be expected from a homosexual”.
    Other reports from the hostel suggested the young man preferred small groups or his own company, prompting the official to ask: “Are homosexuals not more the sociable type?” A gay loner, the report adds, is not behaviour that “fits with an alleged homosexual”.
    The official goes on to dismiss as “completely unthinkable” his claims that non-homosexual youths could have kissed him. “If you had really done that with a non-homosexual youth, then you would have received a terrible beating.” 
    Finally, the official dismissed a claim the Afghan asylum applicant felt drawn to his own sex from the age of 12.
    “In an under-sexualised society like Afghanistan, in which there are no public sexual allurements through fashion and advertising, it is not very likely to have been ‘sexualised’ so young.”
    The final ruling of the official: “You are not homosexual and, on your return to Afghanistan, have nothing to fear.”

    Taboo

    Homosexuality in Afghanistan is largely taboo and often linked with prostitution and paedophilia. After their takeover, the Taliban criminalised all non-heterosexual relationships outside marriage and executed in public men and women accused of adultery and same-sex acts. 
    After the American invasion in 2001, a handbook for US marines noted that “homosexual behaviour is relatively common, but taboo, in rural Afghanistan, because there are no other outlets for normal sexual energies”. European and Austrian courts have ruled that homosexuality can be a legitimate reason for asylum if returning a gay man or lesbian to their homeland meant they faced likely persecution.
    Even Austria’s migration authority admits in its 118-page report that bisexuals, homosexuals and transsexuals in Afghanistan face “brutal rejection” by mainstream society.
    NGOs, the report continues, report of gay men being detained, robbed, raped and even killed. But the migration authority ends its report by telling the young man: “you are not homosexual, you just want to trick the authority.”
    Determining homosexuality as grounds for asylum has proven one of the trickiest issues for authorities in Germany and Austria on the front lines of the 2015-2016 migrant surge. But a leading Austrian gay group said on Wednesday that the report, leaked to Vienna’s Falter magazine, was “so filled with prejudice, stereotype and cliche” that it disqualified itself.
    The 18-year-old Afghan man has appealed the decision. The asylum authority is standing firm, saying that “viewed objectively, one cannot assume that the person in question is, in fact, homosexual”.

    David Hogg (Parkland Survivor) Rejects Fox News and Ingrahams' Shallow Apology After Advertisers Began Dropping Her as Damaged Goods





    Laura Ingraham's giving in to her inner feelings and salutes at the RNC

     A student survivor of a Florida high school shooting has brushed aside a Fox News host's apology after she mocked his university rejections.
    Ten companies have said they are pulling ads from Laura Ingraham's programme after 17-year-old David Hogg tweeted a call for a boycott.
    On Wednesday, she accused the activist of whining after he said four colleges had declined his applications.
    He has been a target of online abuse since last month's attack in Parkland. 
    Keeping up the pressure on Friday, David told the New York Daily News: "I would love to see her go."
    He tweeted on Thursday night: "I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and me in this fight. 
    "It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children." 
    The teenage activist - who has amassed more than 600,000 Twitter followers since last month's attack - told CNN on Thursday: "She's only apologizing after a third of her advertisers pulled out.
    "I think it's great that corporate America is standing with me and the rest of my friends."  
    He also rejected her invitation to appear on her show and discuss his gun control campaign.
    "I think it's really disgusting, the fact that she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing to me," he told CNN.
    TripAdvisor, Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Wayfair, Stich Fix, Nestlé, and Nutrish have said they will withdraw commercials from The Ingraham Angle.
    On Thursday night's show, Ms. Ingraham ignored the boycott.

    Soooo @IngrahamAngle what are your biggest advertisers ... Asking for a friend.

    TripAdvisor, Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Wayfair, Stich Fix, Nestlé, and Nutrish announced they would withdraw commercials from the presenter's show, The Ingraham Angle.
    On her Thursday night show, Ms. Ingraham ignored the boycott.
    Republican campaign strategist Steve Schmidt praised David Hogg as fearless. 
    "This kid's not scared," he said. "He's not scared of the NRA. He's not intimidated and scared by Laura Ingraham."
    The furor touched off on Wednesday when Ms. Ingraham posted on Twitter: "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it."
    David had mentioned to celebrity gossip website TMZ a day earlier that he had been turned away from four colleges in the University of California system.
    A day later - as advertisers joined a boycott - the Fox presenter struck a conciliatory tone by praising David's exam grades.
    "On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland," she said.
    But a TripAdvisor spokesperson said Ms. Ingraham's original comments "cross the line of decency". 
    Wayfair said, "the decision of an adult to personally criticise a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values". 
    "Maybe that's what happens after you've been down range of an AR-15 that kills your classmates and comes close to killing you," Mr. Schmidt told MSNBC, referring to the type of semi-automatic rifle used in the 14 February attack that claimed 17 lives. 
    "You lose all fear. Because this kid's not scared. He's not scared of the NRA. He's not intimidated and scared by Laura Ingraham."

    Roseanne Bar is Back on TV and Her Demon's Are Saying ..."She and We'r Back".....and more



    "She-devil was what the title meant" Hope you got it...
     Roseanne Barr on her movie hit 'She-devil"



    Roseanne Barr is quoted as saying the following (The Los Anges Times) about Trump:

    I’ve known him for many years and he’s done a lot of nice things for me over the years. And it was just a friendly conversation about working and television and ratings,” Barr, 65, continued.
    “He really understands ratings and how they measure things,” Barr said of the former “Celebrity Apprentice” star-turned-president. “And that’s kind of been an interest of mine too.”
    She likes Trump and according to her voted for him, mainly because she liked the way he fired people on the "Apprentice." Also because He talked to her(?)It seems to me by listening to her and I am not going to give an observation about the similarities between Barr and Trump but my question is which one of her personalities is the one who likes Trump? I mean She has been Pro-socialist and GOP Conservative, liking Hillary and calling her a crook. Saying she got gays in her show(?) and she is said nasty things about gays, she is proTrump now but He's been on her demon's hairline too.

    Which means she is all over the place like she is everywhere and that's where the different inside personalities come from. I just hope she is not thinking of running for President because until this new generation coming up can turn 18 and get the vote I could see the Republicans getting together with the Bernie people and give us" Rox, she President!"

    Now, maybe it could be all of them that like Trump now but with a person who has admitted to having dozens upon dozens of those popping noisy critters it will definitely make the news if all of them were for Trump. Since what Trump does except nuclear war does not directly affects her up at her Macadamia Nuthouse, at this point she still loves the guy. They (Trump, Barr) both like to yell more than talk and they never listen unless you are saying nice things about them but it could be that.

    I will go on a limb here and say it must be the "she-devil" personality. You know this is the one where she is not treated right as a housekeeper and at the end, it seems she sets the house on fire.  As I remember it it doesn't show her lighting the match but it shows the house crisply burning on the background while she seats relieved and exhausted  (the same way Trump felt after driving the Casinos to the ground and getting insurance pay for them, declaring bankruptcy and not being on the hook for the money he owed) at the same time  for "She-devil" is trying to figure out how she switches from she-devil to may be the one that at one point hated all men. This is what she said to the Los Angeles Times back in 2016 from her Macadamia Nut House in Hawaii (This all true, is on the tape):
    From her macadamia nut farm in Hawaii — sat down in her studio in El Segundo, a glass of bourbon in her hand, and reflected on her foray into presidential politics, this year’s race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, marijuana legalization and the impending end of the world.
    The first thing we see you say in this movie is, "This is not a publicity stunt." Looking back on your run, do you feel like people had a hard time taking you seriously as a candidate for the presidency?
    They were idiots. I say in the movie, "It's a bunch of clowns and one comedian and they prefer the clowns." You'd say what people hold in their hearts to be true and they'd go, "Nah."
    The citizens of this country don't really get that they could work this stuff to their advantage if they wanted, or they're not ready. I just want people to know what's being done to them. Because I hate stupidity. I want people to see this movie because they should know how it works.
    Notice that when she mentions "evil' she lowers her voice, like they are listening to her. Good luck to you in listening to this old taping originally from Los Angeles Times.
    Warning on language, You could be offended!







     They all ripped off my ...! Bernie [Sanders] ripped my whole ... off, 
    like men do in Hollywood from the day I set foot in here.

    Well, to be fair to Bernie, he has been talking about these issues for a long time.
    Nobody gave a ...! I knew it was there. I tried to help set it up. Now I see all three of them — Hillary, Bernie and Trump — they're all borrowing heavily from my 2012 campaign.
    Like what specific things?
    Well, socialism. Like, "Hey, bankers ought to pay back the money they stole — or at least not get a bonus for doing so." As soon as you start getting paid, then Satan's got you, and you're going to burn in that huge hellfire lake for all eternity with Satan right there with that pitchfork in your eyeball.



    On the one hand, you talk optimistically about the people taking back the system and bringing about revolutionary change. But you also have predicted a few times that the world is about to end.
    Yeah, well, it's always two years ahead of now. I know that.
    So the world will end in 2018?
    Yeah. I do believe we're on the edge of extinction and there's very little if any hope that we'll live through this .... It just seems so finite. They say it's going to be a meteor that takes us out. Well, I say let's party like it's 1999.

    A Space Cadet Congresswoman says There Are More Mass Dems Shooters Than GOP Shooters



    (CNN)Rep. Claudia Tenney, an upstate New York Republican who is up for re-election in one of the most competitive congressional districts in America, told a radio host in Albany that Democrats are more prone to be mass shooters.
    Speaking to host Fred Dicker on WGDJ radio, Tenney was discussing the shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead when she made the remark.
    "It's interesting that so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats," Tenney said. "But the media doesn't talk about that."
    Tenney, who is an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment, was responding to a point made by Dicker that the majority of gun victims come from the inner cities, not in mass shootings.
    Space Cadet First Class Rep. Claudia Tenney, a New York Republican
      Rep. Claudia Tenney, a New York Republican, looks on after President Donald Trump signed financial services executive orders and memorandums at the US Treasury Department in Washington on April 21, 2017.
      Tenney said she supports taking a look at the federal background check system and argued that the shooting should not change the dynamics of the debate over gun control in her district which encompasses cities like Utica, Rome and Binghamton. 
      CNN followed up for clarification from her office and asked specifically what statistics she was referring to, and her campaign later issued a statement.
      "I am fed up with the media and liberals attempting to politicize tragedies and demonize law-abiding gun owners and conservative Americans every time there is a horrible tragedy," Tenney said in the statement. "While we know the perpetrators of these atrocities have a wide variety of political views, my comments are in response to a question about the failure to prosecute illegal gun crime. I will continue to stand up for law-abiding citizens who are smeared by anti-gun liberal elitists."
      Democrats, who have the Tenney seat high on their list of potential flips, were quick to pounce on her remarks.
      "Once again Congresswoman Tenney has demonstrated how completely unfit she is to serve in Congress," Even Lukaske, a spokesperson from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said in a statement. "Tenney's comments are unhinged, shameful and disgusting, and show why voters will replace her next November."
      But in the radio interview, Tenney argued that her commitment to the Second Amendment will be a benefit to her run in a rural, upstate New York district. She pointed out that even her opponent, Utica Democrat and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi considers himself a supporter of gun rights.
      Brindisi, who holds an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association as a state legislator, which indicates support for gun rights, has yet to propose any significant change to gun laws in the wake of the Parkland Shooting.
      Tenney's 22nd District voted for President Donald Trump by 15 percentage points in 2016. But Brindisi outraised Tenney in 2017's third and fourth quarters — making Tenney the subject of more GOP grumbling than other New York Republicans who represent more Democratic-leaning districts, including Reps. John Faso, John Katko and Elise Stefanik.
      Another example came last week, when she questioned in a radio interview in the wake of Rob Porter's firing from the White House whether the two previous wives who accused Porter of assaulting them should be believed since charges have not been filed, saying that "it's so easy to line people up."
