‘This is a game changer’: Humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico

Published

on

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló put it very bluntly on CNN’s “New Day“:

“This is a game changer,” he said. “We need to prevent a humanitarian crisis occurring in America.”

Hurricane Maria devastated the island, which is a U.S. territory. No power, no phones, no Internet. It’s as bad as it could get for many. Hospitals are not operating. People will die, and power could take months to restore.

“Puerto Rico is part of the United States, and we need to take swift action,” the governor said. “This is a major disaster.”

I am also a contributor for The Resurgent, and today we were challenged to devote nearly an entire day’s production to Puerto Rico, which is in desperate need of aid. Here are some of the featured posts.

Dams, Cuomo, Israel, Generators and Hope in Puerto Rico | The Resurgent

A 90-year-old dam has cracked and could at any moment send catastrophic floods through the northwest part of the island.

Relief teams continue to pour in from many places in the world. Although Israel has sent resources to Mexico City to help that metropolis dig out from a 7.1 earthquake, the tiny nation has also send an Israel AID team to Puerto Rico.

The largest number of Puerto Ricans outside of the island itself live in New York. Gov. Andrew Cuomo personally led a team to the ravaged island, and didn’t just make it a grandstanding tour.

My favorite relief group, Convoy of Hope, has a team heading to Puerto Rico to assist. Convoy of Hope was one of the first groups on the ground distributing meals and supplies in Houston’s flooding. Unlike the Red Cross, this organization is lean, without layers of management and red tape to steal away the impact of your donation.

On Meet the Press, Chuck Todd highlighted the charities below as top rated and on the ground in Puerto Rico.

Please don’t forget about the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands | The Resurgent

“We are U.S. citizens that just a few weeks ago went to the aid of other U.S. citizens even as we’re going through our fiscal downturn and as we were hit by another storm,” said Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló. “Now, we’ve been essentially devastated. Complete destruction of the power infrastructure, severe destruction of the housing infrastructure, food and water are needed. My petition is that we were there once for our brothers and sisters, our other U.S. citizens, now it’s time that U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico are taken care of adequately, properly.”

In the meantime, we all have a role to play. Step up and donate. We have a list of orginaztions on our website that will help. The funds donated to these organizations go directly to aid.

Christian Charity Takes Charge of a Plane to Fly Supplies to the Caribbean | The Resurgent

When major hurricanes hit international locations, we deploy a disaster assistance response team (DART) to quickly bring in a variety of emergency supplies. We also leverage our Samaritan’s Purse aircraft, including our DC-8 cargo plane, to assist. Today we are working to help people on several devastated islands of the Caribbean, including Puerto Rico, Dominica, St. Martin, Antigua, Barbuda, and Turks and Caicos. We have already airlifted generators, food, water purification units, hygiene kits, and heavy-duty shelter plastic for thousands of families. Our distributions are ongoing. As we minister in the wake of Hurricanes Irma, Jose, and Maria, we share the Good News of Jesus Christ alongside local church partners.

Ben Shapiro calls out the utter hypocrisy of the U.N. for not condemning Hamas

Ben Shapiro calls out the utter hypocrisy of the U.N. for not condemning Hamas

There are two forms of terrorism in the eyes of the United Nations. There’s terrorism that should be condemned and terrorism perpetrated against the nation of Israel. The former is universally condemned. The latter has a mitigating circumstances that makes it impossible for them to condemn terrorists or acts of violence. That mitigating circumstance is the fact that it’s being committed against Israel.

Apparently, that makes terrorism palatable to a majority in the United Nations. As conservative commentator Ben Shapiro puts it, Israel is a “disfavored” member of the international community.

“Hamas isn’t hiding the ball. It is evil. It celebrates evil. It pays terrorists to commit acts of evil. But the international community isn’t hiding the ball either when its members refuse to condemn terrorism as terrorism when it is directed against disfavored members of the international community.”

Read the whole article by Shapiro on DailyWire:

The ‘International Community’ Isn’t A Community. It’s A Rogue’s Gallery.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/39304/international-community-isnt-community-its-rogues-ben-shapiroTake, for example, the United Nations’ recent decision not to condemn the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. This week, the U.N. General Assembly voted on a resolution condemning the group for “repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk,” as well as for using assets to construct “tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas.” The U.N., which requires a two-thirds vote to pass a General Assembly resolution, voted down the resolution — 87 nations in favor, 58 against, 32 abstaining. All in all, that means that more nations voted against ratifying the resolution — 90 — than in favor of it.

As Israel destroys Hezbollah's terror tunnels, Benjamin Netanyahu issues a warning

Hezbollah was caught red-handed building tunnels from Lebanon to Israel for the sole purpose of transporting soldiers, terrorists, and weapons across the border for future attacks on Israel. This isn’t disputed, but there still seems to be a false sense of outrage towards Israel for destroying them.

There’s no way to tell how Hezbollah expected Israel to react, but they have grown increasingly threatening as the fruits of their labors are being systematically demolished. Some fear retaliation for Israel’s efforts to protect itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it crystal clear any actions taken against the demolition process will be met by extreme force.

“If Hezbollah makes the mistake, and decides, in any way, to attack us or to oppose our operation, they will be hit with unimaginable blows.”

Thomas Sowell on #FakeNews

Thomas Sowell on #FakeNews

One of the great conservative thinkers of our time (or any time for that matter) is Thomas Sowell. He has been dishing out dimes of wisdom for decades, and though he is getting on in years he is still quite capable of breaking down the current status of geopolitics, economics, and cultural differences.

In other words, he’s the left’s greatest nightmare.

On the topic of fake news, which is near and dear to our hearts as a news outlet opposed to the machinations of mainstream media, Sowell breaks it down into a few simple choices. Either people in the media do their jobs or announce that they’ve stopped doing their jobs, in which case it’s up to the people to be discerning.

“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”
