Well more news, a whole crew of fuel workers is heading to PR from the US as truck drivers are still no showing for work at full capacity to San Juan, some are showing to work but many are not.

This crew will take care of the most important places that needs to be protected like hospitals and first responders, they will provide flow of disease and gas for the generators.

Water is slowly coming back to the houses in land that are accessible to main roads, Gas stations are starting to open more in land still only those closes to main roads.

Trump is willing to ask for 13 billion dollars to congress to help PR infrastructure, not the debt

Direct access to water spring water that the Island has plenty is now been provided the people aree connecting tubes directly from water springs down the mountain sides so people can collect and take quick baths.

This is something that brings me memories from back in the day when on dry spells my father used to take us up the mountains to collect fresh water.

PR is a rain forest, water is available and plentyful when your are closes to the mountains, heavily populated areas depend on running water underground.

I wonder if the mayor will be able to keep her mouth shut. HAHAHAHAHAA!! Can't believe I was thinking that. When the President leaves she will be camera hunting big time.

Which, of course, is the virtue of ATS and the opportunity to create threads like this to compile and examine and evaluate all sources of information to find those playing politics!

Well now that PR is getting in track with the federal government now we most blame Trump of forgetting about the Virgin Islands because is his fault they got hit by Maria too.

It seems that the news media don't have anything anymore from PR now they will move to the Virgin Islands.

The media is in the US doesn't stop amusing and feeding the crowds.

I'm not sure the media even remembers that the Virgin Islands exist. For the past few weeks, I've only ever heard the MSM mention them as an afterthought in articles about Puerto Rico.

i know its a pipe dream and it would be a logistical and red tape nightmare but if UPS and the Teamsters could come to terms with the US and Puerto Rican governments they could send 1000's of qualified drivers to help.

Haven't you learned by now that Snopes is full of bull#?

It isn't the Teamsters that are refusing to work. It's a local truckers union called "Frente Amplio" that is being accused of stalling the relief effort.

Trust me today it was all about the Virgin Islands.


Is just amazing how the American media love to feed on whatever they can find just to make the Trump administration look bad.

Yesterday the union was asking 70 dollars an hour to work, so Fema got themselves their own equipment and a team to drive.


Now the Union will claim that the Gringos are taking away their jobs.

is like a no win situation.

source? are the truck drivers in that union civilians? civilians with proper licences willing to help should be allowed to but not forced to in my opinion. i'm not sure i could blame a civilian truck driver to not accept a job that could put his life in danger.

military truck drivers should be doing the majority of the work in my opinion, with volunteers and contract workers willing to take on the job making up the rest of the drivers.

I got the best source money can buy, my brother works for one of the agencies in the government.

The media will spin whatever they one, but will never report the truth.

Just like I said that the Major of San Juan la commandant wanted to be in charge of distribution of aid in San Juan over FEMA she is now doing just that, she is now creating her own center with donated relief supplies to give away to her people in San Juan to claim that she is been doing humanitarian work for her bid to the governors seat

The woman is a piece of trash and a politiquera.

In a meeting with the governor and the department of commerce of Hacienda, the union leader was throwing numbers to see witch one would stick like crap in a ceiling, he started with 50 dollars to 70 dollars while the people in the Island keep suffering

Report: Puerto Rico Truckers Union, “Frente Amplio”, Refuse to Deliver Supplies – Use Hurricane Maria as Contract Leverage…

The US press was in the meeting and they didn't report any of that.


The reason for truck drivers not showing up? The Puerto Rican Truckers Union, Frente Amplio, is refusing to move the product.

The older man in this video (below) is the boss of a very sketchy (corrupt and violent) Puerto Rico trucker’s union called Fente Amplio. The Union Leader’s name is Victor Rodriguez. The reporter is pleading with Rodriquez to set aside his political grievances with the Puerto Rican governor. Mr. Rodriquez (toothless) angrily shouts NO, and states the truck drivers have a right to be mad and will punish Puerto Rico to prove their union’s strength.


This the type of corruption going on in PR.

The soo call ply for the Truckers was the outrageous charges to move supplies around the Island.

In a time of need this son of a dog decided to do protest rather than helping their fellow PRicans in need


There is no question that drivers were ordered NOT TO TOUCH THE TRUCKS as a retaliatory measure against the Governor of Puerto Rico.

The Mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin decided to keep her mouth shut about the strike and insult President Trump instead. It was a foolish and unfortunate choice considering Puerto Rico is out in the middle of the ocean. President Trump doubled down his efforts and was preparing for the tragedy “even before” the hurricanes hit Puerto Rico.


She was behind supporting the strike.

To make the governor look bad and the Federal government too.

Soo now the media is showing nothing but la comandante and her now own club of aid help that she is organizing to get all the photo op for her run to La casa blanca in San Juan

It's my feeling that the PR of yesterday will be radically changed...

the nation, prompted by the spreading out of the rebuilding infrastructure plan (funding mostly by USA 'marshall plan 2.0') will go totally cashless & rely on digital monies, wages, transfers+payments, ...a new universal ID based on facial & fingerprint recognition tied in with welfare-SS$-food stamps, and introducing resource rationing per person....

the P.R. Nation will become the experimental~sandbox for the eventual remaking of the USA cashless-society to be set up before 2024...

the experiment is meant to stop the ever increasing deflationary dollar that is settling in despite the Fed Reserve frantic to create a 2+% inflationary economic environment

That is interesting, it could be, but knowing PR as I do, this will cause problems with the many groups that are a mix of immigrants from neighboring Island that come to PR with fake IDs and expired visas to collect Federal government benefits.

And That is one of the reasons for the stricter, more control environment of a tightly regulated 'CashLess Society' to be installed in P.R. by the Big-Brother USA....

all those trying to get a free-ride, without being citizens there in P.R. will be denied the progressive-socialism that will evolve there in that island Nation

Udio it sounds so grim, I don't think I can accept a cashless society, perhaps the new generation with the head in the clouds and mind in their mobile phones can, but hell I am old school, you know is hard to teach new tricks to an old dog.

I found this on Zero Hedge yesterday.

Puerto Rican Mayors Investigated For Hoarding Supplies For "Constituents Who Voted For Them"


As Metro reports, the U.S. Attorney in San Juan is now opening an investigation into whether or not local mayors around Puerto Rico have been withholding supplies from residents and/or only delivering them to "constituents who had voted for them."


"This morning we received information from a town on the Island where a person close to the municipal administration was asking one of our federal agents that the supplies that were there could not be touched because they were for his mayor," said Rodríguez, who then indicated that the case is already being investigated.

He added that he also received confidences from another islander whose official was also keeping supplies for "constituents who had voted for that person."

"This is not the time to do politics ... this is the time to help and to be kind to others. This is a tragedy and nobody should take advantage of the aid," said Rodriguez, adding that if they manage to prove the indications, the accusations will arrive" no matter which party, or whoever. "


They don't name the towns specifically, but the guy offers some clues:


While refusing to give specific names, the U.S. Attorney's office said that "the first is from the (area) north and the other is from the center; and another is the metropolitan area."


Anyone care to guess who that mayor from the "metropolitan area" might be?
