    Carmen Yulin Cruz, the anti-Trump Mayor of San Juan who has used the national spotlight of Hurricane Maria to attack Trump, has a long history of supporting convicted terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, a Puerto Rican radical who ran a paramilitary group that waged war against the United States.

    Since May 29th, 2012, Cruz has used her official Twitter account 49 times to lend support to Lopez, a man arrested by the United States government in May of 1981 for seditious conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to transport explosives to destroy government property, among other charges. Later that year, Lopez was sentenced to 55 years in jail for his various crimes.

    Moreover, it appears Cruz is more than just a supporter of Rivera’s; she appears to be a personal friend of his. On May 29th, 2016, Cruz posted a tribute to Rivera, and wrote “for a great friend, a great patriot: for you Oscar Lopez Rivera.”:

    Indeed, Cruz and Lopez appear to be not just friends, but close friends. Several months after President Obama commuted Rivera’s sentence just before he left office, a decision so bizarre even CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t understand it, Cruz tweeted a selfie of herself with a man who closely resembles Rivera, with the caption reading “Welcome #OscarLopez”:



    However, this is hardly surprising, given her long history of using her political clout to advocate on the convicted terrorist’s behalf. On September 20th, 2012, Cruz tweeted a picture of herself posing with street art of Rivera, writing “Free Oscar Lopez Rivera.”:

    On May 29th, 2014, Cruz tweeted a picture of herself at a “national walk” for the convicted terrorist, sporting a shirt with his face on it:

    On May 27th, 2015, Cruz tweeted a picture of herself and a friend wearing shirts that read “FREE OSCAR LOPEZ RIVERA NOW!”:

    Apparently, she is so close with Rivera that he actually painted a picture of her from his prison cell, per this tweet from June 5th, 2016:

    On June 28th, 2016, she tweeted at then-President Obama that it is “a moral imperative for you to free Oscar Lopez Rivera,” and earlier called it a “human rights issue.”

    In addition, Cruz was an outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter during the Presidential election, tweeting the day before the election that Trump does not deserve to be president:

    What a bunch of crooks - is that Guiterras in the back? PR has been operating for years on our welfare system, free to move to the US anytime they want to be on the dole here and take jobs too, SSI etc. The island's politicians misuse funds and actually are commie/terrorists supporters - Oh yes, we pay for all of it! It should be a tourist island paradise as the other area islands are raking in the $$$$.

    Goofy obama pardons rivera and tried to make Cuba a friend when they are not friendly or trustworthy. Believe he intended to send cubans here enmass to be on the dole too. At least Cuba displayed a screw you attitude, leaving obama at the airport with no one to greet him in his cuba visit. Except for those with scruples, these people are using America! Take take, no give-give is their motto. And commie bernie is right there.

    Too bad she is such a poor leader; she can't help her people. Why didn't she capitalize on San Juan as a could be major tourist destination and rake in the dough? She was too busy posing for photos with terrorists. Did she make any provisions for such storms that are happening now and in the future? NO!

    Puerto Rico: Trump lashes out at San Juan mayor over Maria response



    Donald Trump has lashed out at Puerto Rico politicians over their criticism of US relief efforts on the island following Hurricane Maria.

    The category four hurricane a week ago killed 16 people on the island and left millions in need of aid.

    In a series of tweets, Trump said that Puerto Rican officials showed "poor leadership ability" and "want everything to be done for them".

    It comes after the Mayor of San Juan made a desperate plea for federal help.
    "We have no time for patience any more," Carmen Yulin Cruz said in a news conference.
    "I am asking the president of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives.
    "I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell."

    She then appeared in a T-shirt that said "Help us, we're dying" for a CNN television interview.

    The mayor, who is living in a shelter after her home was destroyed, said Puerto Rico is set to be without power for six to eight months after the storm damaged 90% of homes on the island.
    More bad weather is in the offing, with the National Weather Service in San Juan warning that a strong thunderstorm would imminently affect the east of the island, with torrential rain and strong winds expected.
    Almost half the island's 3.4 million population are without drinking water, the US Defence Department said on Thursday.
    Efforts are being made on the island to clear road access and restore hospitals to working conditions.

    In a series of tweets on Saturday morning, Trump suggested the mayor had been told "to be nasty to Trump" by his Democratic opposition.

    He also said he would visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday with the First Lady, Melania.

    It follows widespread criticism of his administration's response to the hurricane.
    Responding to Trump's tweets in an interview the mayor said: "I was asking for help. I wasn't saying anything nasty about the president."

    Image caption The San Juan mayor has been vocal about the island's need for federal aid "I will continue to do what I have to do, say what I have to say, compliment the people that I have to compliment, and call out the people that I need to call out.

    "This isn't about me. This isn't about anyone. This is about lives that are being lost."
    On Thursday the President announced shipping restrictions had been lifted to help provide aid to the island.

    The US military general in charge of the relief operation said on Friday that about 4,500 troops were already involved.


    The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) said 95% of the island remained without power and 55% of people did not yet have access to drinking water, but that most petrol stations had reopened.
    Concerns were raised on Thursday that thousands of shipping containers of aid were sitting in a San Juan undistributed. Ground transportation has been hindered by a lack of fuel and blocked roads.
    The US navy has deployed a hospital ship and has assigned engineers to repair the island's damaged power grid, the US Department of Defense said on Friday.
    Puerto Rico is a US territory but does not have direct voting representation.

    She's a silly DemoQuack way in over her head. "We're dying" as she stands in a warehouse full of supplies waiting for someone to come get them or deliver them to someone who needs them. The Puerto Rican people are perfectly capable of getting their own supplies. Disaster Relief isn't room service. She is in San Juan where the stores are open, the streets are dry, gas stations are open, people are driving on the streets, stores have supplies, banks are open.

    People need to get to work, show up at your job at the police station where you work, show up at the dispatch office where you normally get your truck delivery instructions, just get out of the houses with no roofs and go to work to fix your Island. The United States is there and has always been there to help you, the Army, National Guard, Navy, FEMA are all over the place helping you. But please help yourselves as well. This was how Texas and Florida got through their disaster. It was remarkable how well they did, helping each other, looking after each other, never complaining, so appreciative of every and anything anyone did for them. That's one of the reasons why they came through it as well as they did.

    Millions Of Water Bottles Found Rotting In Puerto Rico As San Juan Mayor Continues To Bash Trump

    Screenshot: CNN Video
    ByRYAN SAAVEDRA@REALSAAVEDRA
    September 13, 2018

    San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz has repeatedly attacked President Donald Trump over the U.S. government's response in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, even as 12 million bottles of water were discovered this week rotting on an airport runway in Puerto Rico.

    BuzzFeed News reports that "Justo Hernández, deputy federal coordinating officer of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), told reporters that the 19,841 pallets of water were left on the runway at José Aponte de la Torre Airport and that as a result, 'some of that water was spoiled.'"

    20,000 pallets of bottled water were left untouched in storm-ravaged Puerto Rico https://cnn.it/2COGP8W
    5:32 PM - Sep 12, 2018




    The revelation comes at roughly the same time that Yulin Cruz appeared on CNN to bash Trump and also attacked the president in a series of tweets this week.

    Simply put: delusional, paranoid, and unhinged from any sense of reality. Trump is so vain he thinks this is about him. NO IT IS NOT.

    Damn it: this is NOT about politics this was always about SAVING LIVES.
    8:38 AM - Sep 13, 2018


    Puerto Rico Secretary of State Luis Rivera Marin called out Yulin Cruz last night on Fox News as being one of Puerto Rico's politicians who has "politicized" the natural disaster.

    A June report from a local Puerto Rican news outlet — provided to The Daily Wire after it was translated into English — highlighted Yulin Cruz's absence from Puerto Rico as she politicked in the United States.

    "So far this year, the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, has been out of Puerto Rico for 52 days, tending to activities with different organizations and delegating the functions of her job that she was recently reelected to, to former vice-mayor of the capital, Rafael Jaume," NotiCel reported.

    "Subsequently, there have been 11 executive orders issued by Cruz Soto to designate Jaume as interim mayor while she is outside Puerto Rico."

    The media has also used the hurricane to attack Trump, often blaming his administration for any failures in Puerto Rico, even if the fault lies with Puerto Rican officials.

    The Daily Caller flagged a video clip yesterday of FEMA administrator Brock Long appearing on MSNBC and debunking many false or misleading claims that the media has been peddling since the hurricane.
