‘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.

Chuck Todd Highlights Top Rated Charities to Help Puerto Rico | The Resurgent

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.

Van Jones on CNN describes the left's reaction to the Mueller report

For the last 22-months, a day hasn’t gone by in which CNN didn’t mention Robert Mueller’s investigation with a spin of hope for their leftist audience that any moment, the hammer would drop and Mueller would be knocking on the White House door with handcuffs in hand. Now that Attorney General William Barr has released a summary of the Mueller report, many in mainstream media are trying to reconcile what they now know with what they’ve thought they knew for nearly two years.

Many are saying, “wait for the full report.” Others are saying Mueller – their hero for the duration – was controlled or incompetent or paid off or threatened… or something. Others are looking to SDNY as the next great Trump-buster. CNN’s Van Jones expressed the left’s general feelings in one sentence.

When we break it all down, it just comes down to sadness. The left is sad the President didn’t collude with the Russians. It was their best hope to prove their unyielding support for Hillary Clinton wasn’t wasted. Now, they’re lost.

Mike Lee describes the American Conservative Movement in a nutshell

Mike Lee describes the American Conservative Movement in a nutshell

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) is considered by many to be one of the most consistent conservatives in DC. Some conservatives have been miffed when he supports the Presidents too much as well as his embrace of some left-leaning proposals. Meanwhile, some of the President’s most dedicated supporters have attacked Lee’s conservatism when he goes against the President.

Regardless of one’s perspective on the Senator, it’s hard to argue against this quote, which embodies a primary tenet of limited-government federalism and proper Constitutional conservatism.

“We ought to have more people who believe in constitutionally limited government. We have to have more people come to Congress with that mindset. I think we can make this a better place, if, when elections happen, we support candidates who share that philosophy.”

He may not have been speaking directly about the American Conservative Movement, but it’s definitely among our highest goals. Limited government is usually just campaign rhetoric for Republicans in DC. When the time comes to act in a way that actually limits government, very few are willing to put their power behind it. Lee is an exception. He usually acts in favor of removing powers, whether within the executive branch or even within his own legislative branch. He’s even spoken against judicial overreach, which is ironic since his name has been mentioned as a possible Supreme Court Justice.

Less government at all levels but particularly in Washington DC is imperative if America is going to reverse the trend of expanded powers across the board. The individual is the true seat of power. At least we’re supposed to be.

Lila Rose reveals the heinous statistics about Down Syndrome abortions

Yesterday was World Down Syndrome Day, and while many celebrated the wonderful successes and challenges overcome by those with Down Syndrome as well as their families, many in the pro-life movement highlighted a disturbing trend. With our ability to identify Down Syndrome from the womb, aborting babies with the condition has become so commonplace, the Down Syndrome population is non-existent in some countries.

Live Action founder Lila Rose took to Twitter to share some of these depressing statistics, including the horrible increased frequency in which it now happens in the United States. Anyone who knows someone with Down Syndrome must acknowledge their value and the fact that their lives should not be snuffed out because the scientific community says it’s a good thing.

Every life is a gift. Every single one of them. The “humane” murder of preborn babies because of their condition is one of the most mystifying stances of the “progressive” left.
