Sunday Talks: FEMA Director Brock Long -vs- Pontificating Political Presstitute Chris Wallace

There were about a dozen moments within this interview when FEMA Director Brock Long could have easily broken out with: “I ain’t got no time for that“, as the insufferable Chris Wallace demands Long talk about the politics of disaster relief.

Mr. Brock Long and the entire organization of FEMA workers have been doing outstanding work with a ‘no quit’ attitude for months.  Great interview:

      Wallace is such a man-bitch. I watched the first 20 minutes of his pathetic show. A total false narrative, complete with a panel of douche bags, an obviously air-brushed photo of the Wench of San Juan, and predictable nonsense about tweet counts by topic.

      Politics doesn’t work the same way in Latin America as it does in the continental United States.

      The political system that dominates in Latin America is what is known as “patronage politics.” A description of how patronage politics works can be found in Mexican Americans: The Ambivalent Minority by Peter Skerry.

      In patronage politics, the patrón, caudillo or political boss is like a god. No benefits, no government jobs, no welfare, no social security, nothing is possible without the imprimatur of the patrón. In return for these favors, the patrón expects either pecuniary rewards or politicaly fealty in return.

      Chris Mathews clearly has not a scintilla of knowledge of how Latin American political systems work, and why the relief effort is so different in Puerto Rico than it was in Florida or Texas.

        I want to provide an example of how a patronage system of politics works. As a friend of mine here in Mexico described it to me in a message: “It is not just corruption, but a deliberate act to impede the self-organization of the people.” The patrón wants everyone to be completely dependent on her.

        Recently there were a couple of earthquakes that hit the southern part of Mexico.

        In response, my neighbors here in central Mexico (Queretaro, far from the earthquakes) collected goods to send to the victims of the earthquakes. Here are some photographs of my neighbors and the results of their efforts.

        https://ibb.co/doiBJw

        From here the comodities were moved to a central collection point, loaded on trucks and sent to the affected areas.

        However, when the trucks reached the state of Morelos, one of the earthquake zones, the wife of the governor of the state had the police confiscate the commodities. No help is allowed to reach the victims of the earthquakes except that which passes through the hands of the patrón.

        Gobierno de Morelos expropia apoyos para los damnificados
        http://www.jornada.unam.mx/2017/09/23/politica/003n1pol

        Here is a video recording of the Archbishop of Cuernavaca complaining of the actions of the governor’s wife:

        Towards the end of the video one can see a load of commodities collected by the students and faculty of La Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México being confiscated by the wife of the governor of the state of Morelos.

        This is what the Trump administration is up against in Puerto Rico, a political culture that people in the continental United States are not familiar with and have no experience in dealing with.

          It is a form of feudalism, too. Mexicans come to the US with this attitude that 1) the “patron” owes you something toward your life sustenance (hence the powerful entitlement mentality of most Mexicans, and lack of conscience about taking what they have not earned), and 2) resentment against the patron for the power he/she holds. Therefore, anything one can get over on the patron is fine, and a source of pride.

          In the US, the patron is the government/taxpayer/”rich gringo”. This is a deadly combination for the US.

          This is why the illegals can come here and expect and demand that we, the taxpayers, give them everything they want, and they can simultaneously give us the finger in hatred. And it is not just Mexicans, it is everywhere the Spanish colonized.

    I remember hurricane Sandy and the miserable botched “help” that came from the Obamesiah admin while Big Media just fawned over their Obamesiah and cooed sweet nothing into their microphones.

    Its not like anyone who is actually paying attention doesn’t already know what Big Media will try to do, using their 1000X Big Media microscope lens to magnify every incidence of suffering they can manage to get on camera and then do their best to lay all responsibility for any suffering at the feet of president Trump. Thats what they did for the evil Boooosh after Katrina and its just part and parcel of the libcult/democRAT playbook.

    Until Big Media is broken up and the power of a handful of Ruling Classers to dictate what the “news” is has been utterly broken, We the People will be fighting a needlessly uphill fight against the Machinery of Deception and Control, aka Big Media.

      News has always been biased and useful as a political weapon and dissemination of malicious gossip. The printing of a newspaper was started up by private individuals with their own agenda’s. I believe there are histories detailing Benjamin Franklin bashing the press and writing editorials under a pen name or Abraham Lincoln locking up journalists in the brig of iron ships on the Potomac River for sedition during the revolutionary war. The Hearst family shifted from mining to buying newspapers and owned a ton of papers where they played political games. Mark Twain bashed the media all the time. Since day one, the media has been corrupt and biased.

      You cannot believe anything you read and only half of what you see. That saying is as true then as it is now, even more so since what you see can certainly be manipulated. The only thing that has changed in the history of media is the speed with which information can travel. Ever since the earliest of days of mankind culture you still have to do your own assessment of information and determine truth. You must prove everything all the time.

      The Bible spends a lot of time instructing the faithful to study the word of God and to know it well as it will be necessary for them to prove all things all the time against the word of God. Not only to protect and preserve the Word but to know when you were being lied to and to know what is right and what is wrong.

The more the left attempts to besmirch the often heroic efforts coordinated by this administration, the more it simply shines a light on the cucarachas. It may be that even a few low-info voters will begin to notice. I love the way PDJT and his team handle these mendacious midgets.

  10. I was Brock Long I would have busted Chris Wallace in the mouth, he was only interested in hearing that the response was fouled up and inadequate and that is FAKE NEWS. In this kind of unprecedented situation progress will be slow and very incremental. It will take years before all of the damage is cleared away. I have dealt with much smaller unified commands and they are incredibly difficult to administer, the size of the unified command in Puerto Rico is astronomically more difficult and he and his staff are apparently making it work. They deserve credit for that and the fact that the Mayor of San Juan is not fully participating must make it much harder to make things work in a very public way. She should be ashamed of what she is doing to San Juan and Puerto Rico as a whole. The only thing most of us can do is pray for the people of Puerto Rico, I know that is what I will be doing for many months at least, please feel free to join me.

    Chris Wallace’s smug media privilege supremacy is on full display. Brock Long is a decent hardworking public servant who’s seen enough media and bureaucratic doubledoing and doublespeak to recognize the malarkey.

    Long, when goaded by Wallace deflected by making no comment on Mayor Cruz.

    Wallace, when shut down by Long’s level composure, lack of fingerpointing, facts regarding the good progress already made, and his knowledge of the situation, resorted to a cheap jab at Trump by closing with – “your job is tough especially having to deal with all the politicians in Washington.”

    Chris Wallace is a very flawed, weak, arrogant man riding on his father’s coat tails.

    The Federal sea and air lifts of supplies to PR was rapid and comprehensive. The goods have been sitting on the docks for days for the locals to distribute the supplies. The bottle neck in getting the supplies out to the storm victims is all on the head of the local authorities. If the Teamsters are refusing to truck the supplies to where they are needed then the authorities need to authorize the Feds to do so. This is a classic Cluster Fxxk caused by a corrupt Left wing leadership and a “no care” bureaucracy. Wallace is a Cuck news commentator who is a total zero and it apparent that he knows virtually nothing about how the “real world” operates.

      From WIKI:
      The Labor Management Relations Act of 1947 29 U.S.C. § 141-197 better known as the Taft–Hartley Act, (80 H.R. 3020, Pub.L. 80–101, 61 Stat. 136, enacted June 23, 1947) is a United States federal law that restricts the activities and power of labor unions. The act, still effective, was sponsored by Senator Robert A. Taft and Representative Fred A. Hartley, Jr.,

      ….The Act also authorized the President to intervene in strikes or potential strikes that create a national emergency, a reaction to the national coal miners’ strikes called by the United Mine Workers of America in the 1940s. Presidents have used that power less and less frequently in each succeeding decade. President George W. Bush invoked the law in connection with the employer lockout of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union during negotiations with West Coast shipping and stevedoring companies in 2002.{…}

    from New You Post (Sept 30, 2017):
    Jorge Rodríguez is the Harvard-educated CEO of PACIV, an international engineering firm based in Puerto Rico that works in the medical & pharma sectors. “Even before the hurricane hit, water & power systems were already broken. The $118 billion debt crises is a result of government corruption and mismanagement.
    When the hurricane hit we had experts from FEMA from all over the US on the ground and I was really proud of their quick response. The first responders and FEMA have all been outstanding in this crisis, and should be supported.
    I have 50 engineers that I have sent out pro bono to help FEMA and local companies.
    I won’t allow my people to work with the local government.”
    Rodriguez says:
    >>>>> I have a message for the U.S. Congress: Watch out what relief funds you approve and let our local government handle. Don’t let the Puerto Rican government play the victim and fool you. They have no clue what they are doing, and I worry that they will mishandle anything that comes their way.” <<<<<

    Most of us can relate in some way to Brock Peter’s situation (including sundance in Florida) where you exhaust yourself to help others in the best way you can and they not only don’t appreciate it but some low information jackass interjects themselves into the situation and demoralizes and irritates those that worked so hard solving the problem or emergent situation. If you add vitriolic partisan politics it’s even worse.

    The Dem show boating mayor is an absolute disgrace to humanity for playing “dirty trick” politics (ie. “We are Dying” T-shirt) during a crisis of this proportion and media jackals like Wallace are low level creeps trying to bolster their own credibility or ratings by engaging in “tough concerned questioning” of a very tired but incredible FEMA Director who along with all the others working with him have been sacrificing their own health and welfare in their tireless and stressful efforts.
    I just hope when these multiple crises are dealt with these people receive an abundance of gratitude and appreciation for their efforts and much rest. Brock Peter’s is an exceptional fellow as is Tom Brossert and the many others doing a fabulous job during a difficult time. I hope the majority of Americans realize it.

    Little Chrissy’s “interview” with Mick Mulvaney was equally telling.

    Chrissy and the vaunted Fox show prep team thought they had Mick re: government travel.

    Chrissy, in his smarmy way, took a dog leg left in his questioning to, out of the blue, tell Mick he knew Mick was in Canada for a conference. Chrissy, with his little smirk, told the Mick that he hoped he had flown commercial given that Mick was critical of Sessions’ transgressions. Chrissy and the Fox news twits thought they had Mick by the short hairs.

    Mick was prepared. He educated Chrissy quickly, informing the little twerp that not only had he (Mick) flown commercial to Canada but that he had paid for the flight out of his own funds. He did so because he was taking his son to Canada to visit colleges.

    Chrissy was embarrassed beyond belief. He had been skewered like he was a Junior High School JV debater. He quickly changed the subject.

    This will make for some uncomfortable times at DC cocktail parties for Chrissy. He may even lose his pocket hanky.
