UPDATE: Puerto Rico Governor Fires Two More Officials Over Hidden Emergency Relief Supplies…

Updating a story we shared last night; and the latest information only makes the situation seem much worse.   To say this story is infuriating would be an understatement.

As an individual with some personal knowledge of how the recovery process works, the actions by these government officials in Puerto Rico are beyond tragic.  There are people in desperate need, and these stupid claims by officials do nothing to ameliorate ongoing suffering.  This is disgusting and heartbreaking at the same time.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Gov. Wanda Vázquez fired the heads of Puerto Rico’s housing and family departments Sunday in the latest fallout over the discovery of a warehouse filled with emergency supplies dating from Hurricane Maria.

The removal of Housing Secretary Fernando Gil and Department of Family Secretary Glorimar Andújar came a day after the governor fired the director of Puerto Rico’s emergency management agency.

[…]  Vázquez said she decided on the additional firings after meeting with leaders of her administration Sunday morning and officials were unable to provide information she requested about other collection and distribution centers.

“They weren’t able to personally tell me specifically where these centers were located, what they contained and whether an inventory was completed,” she said.

Vázquez did not elaborate on why Gil and Andújar were singled out, saying only that she had lost confidence in them. (more)

Inés Rivera, spokeswoman for the city of Ponce, told The Associated Press that the warehouse is owned by Puerto Rico´s Company of Commerce and Export. Officials with the company could not be reached for comment.  “The mayor of Ponce, María Meléndez, said he had not known about the warehouse and its contents.”

These are direct lies, demonstrable lies, and they only serve to make matters much worse.

[Hat Tip to Guyver1]  The discovered warehouse is owned by the government of Puerto Rico, through a govt. run ‘public corporation’ called the ‘Compañia de Comercio y Exportación de Puerto Rico’ (Puerto Rico Trade and Export Company), founded on December 23, 2003.

The Govt. owned ‘Compañia de Comercio y Exportación de Puerto Rico’ (Puerto Rico Trade and Export Company), is headquartered at the south end of the *SAME* warehouse parking lot.

As you can clearly see above, the government offices (above left) literally share a parking lot with the warehouse (above right) at the Port of Ponce. Any Puerto Rico government official, or Ponce local official, who attempts to deny they knew the location of these supplies and that warehouse is simply lying.

The blogger, Lorenzo Delgado, said he had received a tip about the warehouse but did not specify when. A group of people broke into the warehouse and began distributing supplies to those affected by the recent 6.4 magnitude quake that killed one person and caused damage across Puerto Rico’s southern region. More than 7,000 people remain in shelters as strong aftershocks continue.

Ponce Mayor María Meléndez said she was outraged, noting that she and other mayors were trying to find basic supplies since the quake.

“I spent several days requesting cots and water,” she said. “They sent me to Cabo Rojo for the cots and to San Juan for the water. If I had known that those supplies were there, I would have demanded that they be taken out immediately. ”

When asked how it was possible that she did not know about the existence of the warehouse, Vázquez replied, “That’s what the head of agencies are for … to inform the governor.”

Again, here’s the video.

.

My estimate as to the size of the warehouse was correct. It’s over 200,000 square feet.

The video shows thousands of pallets, double and triple stacked, of key and essential emergency supplies. Bottled water, shelf-stable food, diapers, baby formula, blankets, tarps, tents, propane grills, propane, emergency lights, 24hr candles, batteries, flashlights, emergency radios, portable charging stations, potable water cans, cots, mattresses, at least four industrial kitchens designed for mass feeding stations and much, much more.

To give you an idea of the scale, there’s at least 100 semi truck loads of supplies in this video, in this single warehouse.

Logistically each trailer would haul 22/24 single stack pallets, 44/48 doubles, or 66/72 triple stacked. With more than a dozen staged pallet jacks, this warehouse is holding serious money.

It is unfathomable these supplies were not distributed; and worse yet were likely being re-sold on the black market.

These emergency supplies and materials were delivered in 2017.  In January a magnitude 6.4 earthquake hit Puerto Rico and President Trump authorized an additional $8.2 billion in aid….  When inspecting the building for quake damage the hidden relief supplies were discovered.

I did a Twitter Thread [SEE HERE] with some more specific details of what is identified in that warehouse.   Also as a person who has invested a lot of my life in/around these relief efforts it is prudent to be very clear….

The people of Puerto Rico, the actual victims of these terrible disasters, are not to blame for the corruption by government officials.  When those in desperate need receive the basic supplies they need to reestablish their lives I have never witnessed anything except profound thankfulness, kindness and sincere appreciation.

That a government, any government, would intentionally withhold these urgent supplies is a representation of them, not the victims from whom those relief supplies are withheld. It breaks my heart to think of the countless families who have suffered at the hands of corrupt government officials.

There is a basic level of humanity and decency that connects all of us, regardless of our geography.  In the aftermath of natural disasters there is no class distinction.  I have witnessed the very best in people amid relief efforts and seen incredible acts of selflessness from those who -as a daily outlook- have the very least.

What has happened in this example in Puerto Rico does not represent the ordinary people who are doing the best they can each day to keep one foot in front of the other.

I pray those government officials will repent; however, in the meantime just get the supplies distributed…. and if there are more warehouses, get them open and emptied now; deal with the accountability issues later.

First things first – Get the darn help to those who need it.

      The Puerto Rican Democrats believed the Trump Administration would not send much aid after their hurricane. They started out hiding what they thought would be a small amount of aid. I recall the female mayor of San Juan (later charged for her corruption, I believe) standing in front of pallets of bottled water insisting that no aid was coming through. It was obviously their pre-conceived plan to deny Trump was assisting them.

    The Democrats’ solution would be to launch an investigation into what happened and immediately form a new task force. Not to distribute supplies, just to investigate.

    They would arrive at the conclusion that a new government agency should be formed to ensure that supplies are procured and distributed properly. This agency will be funded in perpetuity regardless of need and a separate government watchdog group would be announced to hold the agency accountable for any wrongdoing.

          This is what I’ve heard from several sources and it makes perfect sense.

      True, but it’s a matter of how low. Here they weren’t hoarding, they were selling and dispensing stuff as favors. Hadn’t heard? Just wait a while, many of the Municipality’s mayors (that position is like a Gov of a State mainland) were doing the same thing in the weeks after help started arriving when Maria hit in 2017. This is the same only larger-100 semi’s size. In an a/c’d warehouse. The Mayor of Ponce where the warehouse is says she had no clue. Please. There are 12 full time people employed, whether they show up is another thing, ghost pay rolling is a Nat’l Past Time as a matter of right. The Mayor knows everyone of them and their cousins by their first name. They all kept the secret because they all were in on it. It’ll come out.
      And don’t forget about the hidden warehouse on the other side of the Island discovered about 8 mos after Maria–loaded with 100’s of the power poles the electric line repair crews were desperately waiting for from the mainland. Had to get the FBI to let them in.
      If you’ve been to PR, you need not ask why 90% of their humble homes have wrought iron over the windows and doors–they steal from each other, also a Nat’l Past Time and matter of duty.
      FEMA didn’t know that so nobody looked for 100 truckloads of goods. The only Q I have about this warehouse is where was the FEMA oversight

    Plane loads of FBI, US Marshalls, forensic accountants, US FEMA, and assistant US Attorneys should be landing in PR tomorrow to take possession of these materials and begin distributing them, as well as examining the shipping and receiving documents to determine where they came from, what other warehouses were shipping destinations, and who gets arrested.

    We see Billions going overseas to Ukraine and other bottomless pit S___holes and we don’t think our politicians of BOTH PARTIES are there scooping out their share? We see “No-Name” delivering pallets of Cash to the Iranians for Obama, with Soleimani smiling in the picture, and we don’t think the Senators aren’t getting a kickback?
    We have heard for years that “we want common sense gun controls, but we don’t want to take your guns.” Now, look at the truth in Virginia, where they want to pass “Red Flag” laws at the same time their statements equate Gun Ownership with Mental illness.
    What we have asked but not made them answer is if you want to ban guns in your state, fine, let your people live like that if they are stupid enough to vote for you, but why do you want to come hee and ban ours?
    Now ask and make them answer the same question about abortion.
    I am telling everyone and won’t stop, when you think about abortion, look at gun control.
    They are not interested in YOUR right to choose.
    Otherwise they would accept turning this over to the states so that about 15-20 Big Blue States full of Liberal Progressive Socialist women would have the right to kill generations of future voters.
    That’s not their long term goal.
    These people are only interested in THEIR right to choose FOR YOU.
    They want to limit OUR future voters. It will be part of their global depopulation plan that people that value their freedom and guaranteed God given rights will be the ones they want to prevent from breeding.
    Until the places like New York who have significant enough suburban and rural population that they have in recent memory had Republican Governors and Mayors start going to the polls enough to stop this shift, then I am not sorry for them, I hope it only gets worse, until they get the same “snoot-full” we Southern Boys talk about that was described when the Israelites rejected God’s Manna. HE said “I’ll send them Quail until it runneth from their nostrils.” I hope every voter in these states has every kind of filth and injustice heaped upon them until it runs from THEIR nostrils. Then maybe they will change THEIR ways and things will be different for them and us.

    Interesting interview. At least two warehouses (though the contracted size doesn’t match the warehouse in Ponce). Some interesting information in this interview.

      Really nice interviewer, asked good questions. Thank you for this. This is a huge story. Can only imagine if Ukraine hadn’t come along the Dem’s would have thought to use the accusation of Pres. Trump withholding relief aid to PR as an excuse to impeach.

      Interviewer David Begnaud’s tweet,

      BREAKING: Ponce Puerto Rico's Mayor calls for govt officials to be prosecuted for not distributing aid that was sitting in a warehouse in Ponce. She said she's demanded the aid be distributed today. She claims she didn't know the warehouse was stocked, but the central govt did. https://t.co/iq2ZwCW6QU— David Begnaud (@DavidBegnaud) January 19, 2020

      The PR Government owns more than half a million square feet in Ponce, divided into many units that it rents out.

      Scroll halfway down to see the total space available for rent:

      Here’s a listing of space that was available in 2018. The PR Goverment owns 5 buildings in SD’s photo. Here’s a listing of the available rental space. The space in yellow is office space in the Government admin building that SD pointed out. The rest is all warehouse space:

      The exact spot where the video was filmed was the western side of the northern wall that is shown in the video, which you can see here:

      Sundance, you are absolutely correct. Having seen the Ponce warehouse in the past with my own eyes, the size that is quoted in the ‘contract’ is an absolute lie. It is much bigger. Which brings up another interesting point… 🤔🤔🤔. Did they also lie in the ‘contract’ about how much the government of PR is paying to rent them 😠😠😠? Sounds like the ‘contract’ is nothing more than cover for a typical corrupt PR government money laundering operation. No document coming from the PR government can ever be trusted 😧. Not in total amounts of money, but in terms of corruption the depth of the swamp there makes the swamp here look like a kiddie pool…😧.

      Sounds Like part of this interview is to CY the Governors A.
      Meanwhile, when does @POTUS plan to exert control over this obviously corrupt US Territory, Fire all state officials and Mayors, and send in US Military Governance until the corruption is uncovered, prosecuted, and exposed to the people, certain people are banned from future government service in PR, and new elections are held.
      It may be time not to make PR a state, but to cut them loose and let them find their own way, if the insist on re-electing socialist kleptocrats. We can save the money going to that sink-hole for people that won’t insist on putting thieves in power.
      A GREAT question is “who signed these documents?”
      Those people (if they exist) need to be found, put under investigation, and made to in the legalese, “intestino expurgito” or in other words “spill their guts.”

    Those supplies were acquired with our tax dollars. Trump should empower FEMA to take control of the situation.

    Well, phooey.

    Recall all the trouble the former PR Governor was in, the island protested, the Guvner was removed, and then-Atty Gen Wanda Vasquez assumed the Guvner’s office?

    The rumors that the Feds/FBI was on the island asking questions?

    Apparently then-AG Vasquez knew about the aid in warehouses, and asked the then-Guvner’s Chief of Staff not to make a report.

    Vasquez knew. She knew the whole time.
    There are text msgs, and there is an investigation by the Feds currently ongoing.

      This is good expose’ work, but I have the
      feeling that he’s doing the usual presstitue
