    New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will try to bait President Trump on Tuesday by bringing one of the commander-in-chief’s loudest critics to his State of the Union address — San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. “It is an honor to announce that Mayor @CarmenYulinCruz of San Juan, Puerto Rico will join me at the #SOTU. Throughout the crisis in Puerto Rico, Mayor Cruz has shown extraordinary leadership and fearless advocacy for her city,” Gillibrand tweeted Monday. “I hope Mayor Cruz’s presence at #SOTU will remind the president and my colleagues in Congress of our urgent responsibility to help Puerto Rico...

    San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz has been feuding with President Trump, who she says hasn't done enough to aid the people of her island who are suffering after two devastating hurricanes. The Trump administration says they've been doing everything possible, noting that tons (literally) of federal aid has actually been sent their way. Trump rebutted her by musing that the people of Puerto Rico want everything done for them as opposed to picking themselves up by their bootstraps. Like many of Trump's comments, this set off even more of a firestorm. But, it turns out, Yulín Cruz was fairly...

    Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Irma and then Hurricane Maria a category 5 monster hurricane two weeks later. Most of the leadership in Puerto Rico praised and thanked the government for the much needed aid. But the far left San Juan Mayor Caren Yuliz Cruz Soto decided on Friday the best way to help those suffering was to go out on all of the liberal mainstream news outlets and trash President Trump. San Juan Mayor: “I’m mad as hell because my people’s lives are at stake… We are dying, and you (Trump) are killing us with inefficiency” The San...

  • San Juan Mayor: Puerto Rican Statehood Like 'a Slave Becoming a Slave Owner'

    San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz gained national media attention after attacking President Donald Trump, sparking a war of words between Trump and yet another Cruz. The San Juan mayor has made some very dubious remarks in the recent past that have nothing to do with Trump, however. In a June interview with Britain's liberal The Guardian newspaper, Cruz compared Puerto Rico's current status as a U.S. territory to slavery and said that Puerto Rico becoming a U.S. state would be tantamount to a slave becoming a slave owner. "You don't fight injustice by asking to become part of the...
  • Fellow Puerto Rico Mayor SHREDS San Juan Mayor Cruz ‘She’s Not Participating in Any FEMA Meetings’

    Mayor Angel Perez of Guaynabo, Puerto Rico ripped San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz on Saturday after she attacked President Trump and accused him of doing nothing to help Puerto Rico after the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria. The liberal media is pounding President Trump over the suffering in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. The San Juan Mayor slammed President Trump for ignoring the suffering people of Puerto Rico. She said this while standing in front of pallets of US aid from the mainland. Now we know why the people have no aid. The Teamsters Union drivers did not...

    Democrats in Washington apparently got some bad polling data on the antics of the Crazy Little Marxist Mayor of San Juan late on Sunday, because the Mayor’s talking points related to the Trump Administration’s recovery and support efforts, and even towards the President himself, changed on Sunday evening. After spending 90% of the weekend complaining that the thousands of first responders sent to her Island were providing no help at all, she told MSNBC a late Sunday interview that great progress was suddenly being made. Also, after saying all sorts of nasty things about President Trump on Friday, Saturday and...

    Many of us are accustomed to working NFL Sundays around game time. However I understand that since many of us will be participating in the the #IHatetheNFL blackout today, they may find themselves with some extra time on their hands so I thought I’d tender a few suggestions as to what might be done with this unexpected windfall. Here are a few things I came up with: 1. Launch a countdown clock to O.J.’s release. Update: Rats, they already let the most dubiously innocent man in America out. Alternate game day  plan: develop an interactive computer game called “Where In the...

    (Full Title)‘The T-shirt Shack has reopened!’ Where did San Juan’s mayor get that custom-printed ‘Help Us’ shirt anyway? As Twitchy reported Saturday morning, President Donald Trump in a series of tweets slammed the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, citing her “poor leadership ability.” Trump’s tweets raised quite a few questions, the least of which was not, “Should the president be tweeting like this right now?” Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz has been all over the media this weekend inspiring some questions of her own. During a press conference Friday, she said she was “mad as hell” about the relief effort,...

    San Juan, Mayor makes a fool out of herself saying Trump wants to kill San Juan residents. Without further comment, this woman better come to terms with the fact that POTUS, Donald J. Trump is the best friend in the world that Puerto Ricans have. I simply state the following, "ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THEN WORDS"!!! And POTUS, Trump is doing everything possible in conjunction with the Governor of PR, trying to get this devastating "act of nature attack" under control. Fact is: San Juan, who is led by this incompetent, political, Mayor had no firm or positive action plans in...

    President Donald Trump accused San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz of playing politics in a tweet Saturday after she delivered an emotional speech accusing the administration of “killing” Puerto Rico’s people. “If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying,” she said during an interview with CNN on Friday. “And you are killing us with the inefficiency.” Trump appeared angry by the mayor’s dramatic accusations, especially after they were used by his critics and some members of the media to accuse him of failing Puerto Rico with recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Maria. “The Mayor of...

    On January 13, Robert González Nieves, archbishop of San Juan, revealed Pope Francis’ role in Barack Obama’s pardon of terrorist mastermind Oscar Lopez-Rivera. Speaking from the Cathedral of San Juan, Nieves announced that although the Holy Father made no public statement of his involvement, he had indeed worked behind the curtain on behalf of the unrepentant, bloody-handed Lopez-Rivera. The archbishop was pleased to say: “I know that there have been efforts made through diplomatic channels. The pope is very aware. We are grateful to the Holy Father for his support.” Papal complicity in this politically charged act received little notice...

    This Sunday, Gaudete Sunday, we light the third candle of the Advent wreath. The rose-colored candle and the priests’ rose vestments mark a change in the tenor of this penitential season. For those who have been using Advent as a time to prepare heart and home for the celebration of Christ’s birth, it is a reminder to rejoice in His approaching arrival. For all it is a reminder to get serious with the remainder of the season and use it profitably, to exercise not the feeling, but the virtue, of Hope. And we do need hope. I don’t know how...

    An Encana Corp. rig explores for oil south of Farmington. The company has drilled about 30 wells in the area. Encana Corp. plans to pour $250 million to $450 million into drilling oil wells on New Mexico’s side of the San Juan Basin next year, the company says. The Canadian company has aggressively pursued San Juan Basin oil, drilling about 30 wells to date. The drilling is concentrated near Huerfano, N.M., southeast of Farmington. “Our strategy really is to shift our portfolio more towards oil, so we’re really focusing on areas where we can do that, and the San Juan’s...

    Buenos Aires, December 2nd, 2013 ( – Extremely disturbing video footage from Argentina shows a mob of feminists at a recent protest attacking and sexually molesting a group of Rosary-praying Catholic men who were peacefully protecting the cathedral in the city of San Juan from threats of vandalism. The women, many of them topless, spray-painted the men’s crotches and faces and swastikas on their chests and foreheads, using markers to paint their faces with Hitler-like moustaches. They also performed obscene sexual acts in front of them and pushed their breasts onto their faces, all the while shouting “get your rosaries...
