Op-ed:
Puerto Rico Is Devastated...Here Are Some Ways To Help
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS on American Political Radio

(Editor's Note: I was asked to run this article again as it gives the ways to help Puerto Rico...devastated by Hurricane Maria)

Puerto Rico is part of our country...and like this flag that would NOT surrender to Maria we stand with you and will help our fellow Americans.

As torrential rains continue to pelt Puerto Rico...rains leading to flash flood emergency warnings....the island of 3.4 million people remains shrouded in darkness as electricity remains out...and will so for many weeks and months to come.
 
And as Puerto Rico's Gov. Ricardo Rossello urges people to have faith saying, "We are stronger than any hurricane. Together, we will rebuild" ...he has asked President Donald Trump to declare the island a disaster zone, a step that would open the way to desperately needed federal aid.

Just a Thought...
Gen. McMaster...Flip-Flopper Extrodinaire 
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor

And Gen. McMaster flips yet again now saying that “The deal is fundamentally flawed.” and  “As the president said, he called it the worst deal of all-time. It gave the Iranian regime all the benefits up front.” This from the man who up until President Trump's memorable U.N. speech said over and over that he supported Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. Guess he saw the handwriting on the wall with that speech, and now will say anything NOT to be thrown onto the heap of those booted out of the Trump administration. I trust this Obama appointee NOT one iota at all.

DOJ Audit Reveals Errors in the Monitoring of Known Terrorists in U.S.
Sometimes the not-so-nice guys help the United States government catch terrorists and stop their plots. When they do so, they need to be given a new identity. At the same time, these people who have given the government vital information to save lives may have a "nexus to terrorism." They still need to be monitored by the FBI, National Joint Terrorism Task Force (NJTTF), U.S. Marshals Service (USMS), and the Office of Enforcement Operations (OEO), amongst other organizations.

The people who provide this vital information to the government have cooperated in "major terrorism investigations and prosecutions" over the years. The Department of Justice (DOJ) places them in the Witness Security Program (WITSEC Program) where they receive the label of "known or suspected terrorist (KST)." The DOJ's job is to closely monitor these individuals to make sure they do not carry out terrorist attacks or commit other crimes. Committing a crime is grounds for removal from the WITSEC program.

ICYMI: Facebook Has Been Drawn Into The Russian Collusion SagaOn September 6, The Washington Post reported that Facebook had become an agent of the Russians. Okay—not really, but the bar has been set so low by the Left regarding this whole collusion hysteria that the social media site might as well be considered an enemy agent by progressives.

This all stems from the ongoing investigations into Russian activities during the 2016 election. The Left thinks that Donald Trump’s associates colluded with the Kremlin to tilt the election. There has been zero evidence to suggest such activity occurred. We’ve had a lot of updates, none of which concluded that there was any illegal activity or evidence of collusion. The story has been so saturated with nothing burger updates that no one, but Democrats care about. No one cares about Russia, but alas—here we go again. The social media site received $100,000 from a Russian “troll-farm” to place ads during the election. Most of the ads were reportedly lost, according to Facebook. The Post added that it could rehash the conspiracy theory that Americans helped coordinate Russian activity.  Yet, those close to Facebook’s internal review noted that there’s no way to know if these ads were part of any coordinative campaign (via WaPo):

New York Times buries nationalities and omits refugee status of London jihadis
By Robert Spencer / Jihad Watch

 

The “Paper of Record” can’t have people getting the idea that there might be something wrongheaded about one of the Left’s central causes. “Media Criticism: NYT Buries Nationalities Of London Bombers And Omits Refugee Status In Report,” by Will Ricciardella, Daily Caller News Foundation, September 20, 2017 (thanks to the Geller Report): In a report […]

Defense attorney: Muslim who plotted to behead Pamela Geller an “idiot,” not guilty
He’s just an idiot. Got that? He plotted to behead me because he was “overweight, lonely and desperate for an escape from his bleak life.” See? No worries. Jihad murderers are just idiots. Stop wasting your time fighting mere idiots.

The public has been so systematically and consistently lied to for so many years about the nature of the jihad threat that the jury just might fall for this twaddle.

“Defense attorney: Man accused of terror plot a ‘complete idiot,’ but not guilty,” by Alanna Durkin Richer, Associated Press, September 20, 2017:

BOSTON (AP) — A man accused of participating in a plot to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller became consumed by Islamic State group propaganda because he was overweight, lonely and desperate for an escape from his bleak life, his defense attorney said Wednesday.

Federal authorities say David Wright conspired with his uncle and a third man to kill Geller on behalf of the terrorist group because they were upset she organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas. The plot was never carried out. Wright also wanted to conduct other attacks in the U.S. and encouraged his uncle to kill police officers, officials say.

Op-ed:
Puerto Rico Is Devastated...Here Are Some Ways To Help
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS on American Political Radio

Puerto Rico is part of our country...and like this flag that would NOT surrender to Maria we stand with you and will help our fellow Americans.

As torrential rains continue to pelt Puerto Rico...rains leading to flash flood emergency warnings....the island of 3.4 million people remains shrouded in darkness as electricity remains out...and will so for many weeks and months to come.
 
And as Puerto Rico's Gov. Ricardo Rossello urges people to have faith saying, "We are stronger than any hurricane. Together, we will rebuild" ...he has asked President Donald Trump to declare the island a disaster zone, a step that would open the way to desperately needed federal aid.

Many groups have started organizing donations to be sent to the island but what they need most at this time is generators and water. I ask that Lowes and Home Depot please send any and all generators you have in stock over to Puerto Rico now. They are also in desperate need of water so I ask all bottled water companies to please send stocks over there as well. Food stocks are also needed as all refrigerated items are now no longer safe to use. I ask Publix, Winn-Dixie, Albertsons... Florida's main grocery stores...as we are the closest to the island...to please send what you can over there now. To the pharmaceutical companies...please send any and all drugs you can, especially insulin for diabetics as most supplies perished in the storm, and those that remain are unusable as most insulin needs refrigeration which is obviously not possible at this point in time..

Here are but a few ways those wishing to help can do so:

Fundraising websites such as GoFundMe and Fundly have several active campaigns to help victims of the storm across the Caribbean.

The American Red Cross is mobilizing volunteers in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The organization is also asking for blood donors.
 
The Puerto Rican Leadership Council of South Florida is gathering donations and plans to send water, nonperishable food, diapers, clothes and medical supplies after the hurricane hits, according to Luis De Rosa, president of the local Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce. 

GlobalGiving at https:/​/​www.globalgiving.org is a 501 non-profit organization based in the United States that provides a global crowdfunding platform for grassroots charitable projects.

Unidos Por Puerto Rico: First lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, joined forces with local businesses to create this aid fund for survivors of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

Unicef: This United Nations fund helps children affected by disaster, and donations go toward everything from clean water to school supplies.

Save the Children will lead relief efforts for families and children impacted by the hurricane in the region.

Puerto Rican Hurricane Relief Fund: This fund is a group effort between a coalition of Los Angeles–based Puerto Rican groups, including Puerto Ricans in Action, The Ricans Food, I Am HomeMade, and El Floridita. This campaign has already found two local nonprofits to contribute to as they rebuild two towns on the island.

America’s Charities Disaster Recovery Fund – Hurricane Maria is a charity crowdfunding site that is attempting to raise $2 million to be used exclusively for local relief and recovery efforts. You can give here. (4/4 stars from Charity Navigator)

ConPRmetidos: The Puerto Rican organization focused on public-private partnership is aiming to raise $150,000 for relief and recovery. You can give here.

Oxfam: The nonprofit is focusing its efforts on the Caribbean islands that were devastated by Irma and Maria. You can give here. (3/4 stars from Charity Navigator.)

All Hands: This nonprofit was recommended to Vox by disasterologist Samantha Montano. You can give here. (4/4 stars from Charity Navigator.)

Salvation Army: The Christian charity is emphasizing its intentions to help with long-term recovery. You can give here.

Americares: The nonprofit focused on medicine and health is seeking to provide emergency medical supplies and other basic resources to first responders and others. You can give here. (4/4 stars from Charity Navigator.)

Like I said above, Puerto Rico is part of America and we Americans must help each other out.  "America and Americans First" as President Trump so rightfully said, but lets not forget those hurting throughout the Caribbean first due to Irma and now due to Maria, and also those affected by yesterday's earthquake in Mexico. Americans always rise to help those in need...lets keep doing so now.
