Disturbing Video – U.S. Aid To Puerto Rico Thrown in Dumpsters…

There has been a great deal of political consternation and talking points about U.S. aid, or the lack thereof, delivered to Puerto Rico.  Indeed, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto has been a favorite of Democrats and liberal U.S. media as a spokesperson for claims the U.S. has not done enough for the island’s people.

However, a disturbing video shows Puerto Rico’s Secretary of State showing boxes and boxes of food, water and supplies being discarded by Puerto Rican officials in dumpsters, obviously not reaching the intended residents.

The FBI had previously opened an investigation into the level of fraud and corruption within Puerto Rico’s municipal authorities and reports of widespread theft of U.S. aid by officials of the local governments. This report on FEMA aid being corrupted by these same officials does not come as a surprise; indeed, unfortunately, it is the norm – not the exception.

(Puerto Rico) FBI agents in Puerto Rico have been receiving calls from “across the island” with residents complaining local officials are “withholding” or “mishandling” critical FEMA supplies — with one island official even accused of stuffing his own car full of goods meant for the suffering populace.

The accusations come in the aftermath of deadly Hurricane Maria, which devastated the U.S. territory last month.

“The complaints we’re hearing is that mayors of local municipalities, or people associated with their offices, are giving their political supporters special treatment, goods they’re not giving to other people who need them,” FBI Special Agent Carlos Osorio told Fox News.

Osorio, an agent with the FBI in San Juan, said the bureau was investigating the allegations.

“The U.S. attorney has made it clear if anyone is caught mishandling FEMA supplies, they will be prosecuted and could end up facing anywhere from five to 20 years in prison,” Osorio said.

Some of the claims have come by phone and others have poured in over social media, but the allegations stretch across the island. Osorio told of one allegation where a party official is accused of pulling his own car around the back of a government building and driving off after loading it full of FEMA supplies.

“We’re going out and investigating these claims,” Osorio said. “We don’t know yet if they’re accurate or not…but yes we have received many similar allegations from people in many different parts of the island.”

The allegations of misconduct come amid a pitched back-and-forth between island officials and President Trump over the federal response to Maria. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, a frequent Trump foil, reportedly accused Trump on Thursday of “genocide” for not doing more to aid in the relief efforts.

Cruz sent the accusation in a text message to Rep. Luis V. Gutirrez, D-Ill., who is of Puerto Rican heritage, The Washington Times reported.  Trump on Twitter has accused Cruz of poor management.  (more)

      What a load of BS. The only people in PR who have to file Federal taxes are federal employees. The rest, being that PR is not a state in the union, only file taxes with Hacienda (PR’s IRS). PR’s taxes are higher than combined Federal and state taxes and that is why PR is stuck. Sure, some tax breaks to encourage external investors have been recently passed but for the locals? Nada, zip, zilch, which is a cause for the huge underground economy.

    I lost my job to a couple of illegals. I signed up to receive SS benefits too early because there were no jobs and my savings were depleted. And now I have to look at these people wanting more, more, more.

    Music playing in the background must mean it is party time in PR! Our men and women have been killing them selves to get those supplies to the people of PR. Yet an entire dumpster full of food and bottles of water that have never been opened. People in Venezuela 🇻🇪 are eating Flamingos and their pets in order to live for another day. They would literally give a body part to be able to get their hands on the stuff in that dumpster.

    I hope and pray that some of those bastards get sent to jail for 20 years. What a disgrace!

    I just cannot imagine what a person could be thinking when they make their lackies do this. We know they sure as heck wouldn’t get their hands dirty. It’s someone with power who has access to this amount of aide.

    I just can’t wrap my head around it. I guess they must be the kind of people my Dad had always warned me about. Narcissistic to the nth degree, smooth liars who will look you right in the eye, suave, cruel in private, and would hurt their own mothers if it would save or benefit them.

    I pray they will get caught. Chances are slim, but our Creator works in mysterious ways. Would anyone like to join me? I want whoever did this to go down for a long time and for everyone to know their face.
    Man, this tears me up bad.

    Without a doubt, fraud (primarily Democrat-run) is rampant in Puerto Rico and predates the Hurricanes by a long time. But this video, to me, doesn’t appear to show fraud and potentially is propaganda itself. The thin-walled, plastic-looking “dumpster” in the video looks more like a shipping container that came in with neatly packed and stacked pallets of goods, rather than a sturdy metal outgoing trash container. Of course, the person recording the scene had to go and use the dreaded vertical orientation of the camera, so that the viewer is not afforded a greater contextual view of the situation.

      I agree. I work in shipping and receiving and this looks like shipment container to me. Like you said the person recording should’ve used the full view screen so that the whole situation could be shot.

      About recording the scene vertically, it would seem that, if he wanted to shock the world with a scene of abject delinquency in delivering goods, he would’ve recorded the scene horizontally and panned around to show us so much more neglect. Instead, we get a very narrow, almost unflinching view of one container purported to be a dumpster. I mean, is that it? A “dumpster” not very full and containing some neat stacks of packaging?

    In a typical thugocracy this is what you see. Those in charge always have more and do better than the ones on the street.
    Only capitalism makes it different. The funny thing is it’s because capitalism is impersonal. It doesn’t care who you are or what your grandpa did right or wrong. It only cares if what you are doing now has any value. If it does, somebody will find you and pay you for that with goods or services in mutual agreement where both of you are saying thank you to the other. It is awesome to behold.
    Every other structure just falls away. Turn the people loose and capitalism will rule the day.

    Did you know the Porto Rican power supplier is owed $700,000,000 because Porto Ricans do not believe in paying their bills? But You are a racist bigot because You did not dash down there and fix everything FOR them.

    It is not Our responsibility to fix Your house. That is a recurring act of Nature for which You should prepare. — Those LOCAL politicians should have had all supplies IN PLACE long before the storms hit. They did NOT prepare ….. They did NOT DO THEIR DUTY to the people.

    I had an epiphany while cleaning the wood burner chimney today. Why spend time collecting firewood, stocking food, insulating and sealing cracks, buying woolens & quilts. Why not just do what the Porto-Texa-flordicans do…….. drink rum, suntan, play inna water, “chill”, and when Winter/Hurricane hit ….. wait for GIFTS from the rest of the country and DEMAND help from the Government.
    Let the rest of the country load me up with firewood and food and weather proof my house for me.
    Those jerks get hit every 10 years and they act surprised. Like there have never been hurricanes before.

    I am not saying that the goods are not getting to the intended recipients, BUT – that is the back of an Army stake and pallet truck, not a dumpster.
