    Admiral McRaven resigns...

    ...

    Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.

    A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.

    Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.

    If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be.

    ...disgusting and deplorable...he is truly a reprobate!!!
    the descriptions you have been using have lost all meaning. CNN suing for Death records . both of these deaths they have highlighted are questionable as to directly caused by the storm. one Ramon Cruz Laboy, a 75-year-old, is obviously the guys own damn fault for refusing to go to the hospital, the another evidently didn't have headlights or if we are going to accept conjecture maybe he was drinking "Miguel Angel Maldonado Santana died November 5 after a car accident in which he ran off a bridge in a location where street lights weren't working because power was still out after Hurricane Maria, according to his nephew,"
    point being my storm is bigger than your storm is a disgusting proxy banter to be having period. The official Hurricane Maria toll matters in part because families of those who died in the aftermath of the storm are eligible to have some funeral expenses covered by the US government. Experts say higher death tolls drive more disaster aid.

    could the approximation by the guestamating and extrapolating is not very accurate , IE CNN is still citing a number nearly double what the final study determined for katrina. choosing to cite the most sensational numbers.
    These calculation complications are nothing new. Determining death counts after Hurricane Katrina, in 2005, was a similarly convoluted process. A study published in 2014, almost a full decade after the hurricane left huge swaths of New Orleans flooded and hospitals without power, attributed 1,170 deaths to Hurricane Katrina — 184 more than a widely cited 2008 study on the subject, thanks to new availability of autopsy data. Both of these numbers, however, were considerably lower than an initial estimate from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which initially cited the death toll at 1,833.
    http://ldh.la.gov/assets/oph/Center-...stedOnline.pdf

    It seems to me that its wise to question any numbers that have such a humongous spread

    The most objective way to estimate the number of hurricane deaths, he said, is to look at how many people died in a normal month in Puerto Rico -- and then compare that to the number of deaths during the month of the hurricane. By that measure, 472 more people died in September 2017 than September 2016, according to Puerto Rico's Demographic Registry.
    There is Obviously no agreement on what counts as a death caused by a storm , but seriously CNN its a stretch and seems desperate to attempt an argument that a suicide should be counted as well. according to the practical estimates about 500 appears to be the real number NOT a mythical and politically motivated 3000.

    and the biggest wtf is why is there public discourse over this subjective matter ? How is it being presented ? That's right as a political weapon.

    I am disappointed in Trump, not for his lack in awareness of the complicated means which storm deaths are estimated or defined as direct or indirect. But because of his constant capitulation to these baited traps and irrelevant fodder that distracts from the job of running the ship, but most importantly is his annoying habit of shallow half witted battles with petty news reporters.

    People who have held highly important positions in the past and are rich in institutional knowledge are sometimes, or even more often if it is more recent, contacted when those who have come on the scene later for information. If the person no longer has the clearance they can’t discuss whatever with them. The mere fact that a person has a clearance does not automatically make them privy to any or all classified information—there is always the “need to know” requirement. For about 6 weeks after I retired I kept getting calls from people at HQ asking about “this or that”...I had to tell them that when I retired I no longer had a secret clearance (I was not that high on the totem pole) and could not discuss XYZ, never mind that lots of things are constantly in flux and there may have been changes and/or newer info that I was not privy to. Finally the calls stopped...

    and Once again, shining a light on the label of deplorable has revealed that there is something to what he said.

    the Fuss and direct criticism of THE FEDERAL RELIEF EFFORTS , ORDERED BY TRUMP has its origins in the political ambitions of Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration who are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims .


    and the biggest issue of all ! the corrupt power company ! and if there is any political blame to be had, it falls back to the POTUS of 2014

    ARMED FEDERAL AGENTS ENTER WAREHOUSE IN PUERTO RICO TO SEIZE HOARDED ELECTRIC EQUIPMENT

    Mismanagement is not a new phenomenon for PREPA, which for decades has been Puerto Rico’s sole power provider. For most of that time, it had been self-regulated, with a board comprised largely of political appointees with little to no background in the electricity sector. The lack of oversight created conditions for corruption and disinvestment, with its generation and transmission capacity falling into severe disrepair over many years.


    In 2014, Puerto Rico’s legislature undertook a reform effort. That involved moving the board selection process away from its reliance on political appointments, as well as the establishment of the Electric Commission, a three-member body tasked with regulating PREPA and setting rates.


    Ramón Luis Nieves served in Puerto Rico’s State Senate from 2013 to 2016 and was part of the push to get PREPA’s house in order. During his tenure in the legislature, he chaired the Senate Energy Committee, responsible for creating the Energy Commission in 2014 through Act 57. “For the first time in seven decades of existence,” he told The Intercept of the board reforms, “PREPA had the benefit of having a governing board composed of non-partisan professionals.”


    “When the current administration was in the opposition,” Nieves says of Rosselló’s New Progressive Party, “they opposed all the energy reform bills. Now that they are in power, they have been trying to eliminate the energy regulator and the reforms that were passed.”


    When Rosselló moved into the governor’s mansion early last year, his administration quickly reverted back to the previous board selection process and replaced much of the utility’s leadership. Among those ousted in the process were the board’s three elected consumer advocates, who — as a former member told me in September — had to be removed via special legislation.

    Jan. 10, 2018, 7 p.m.
    Sen. Eduardo Bhatia, minority leader of the Senate of Puerto Rico, provided a statement to The Intercept on the hoarded electrical equipment:
    The news that has come out today about the discovery made by armed federal agents of thousands of electrical spare parts hidden in an PREPA warehouse borders on a criminal act by its managers. It is time for people to stand up and demand answers. Hundreds of thousands of families have been in the dark for more than 125 days, people keep dying, and businesses continue to close due to the lack of energy while the necessary spare parts were in the possession of PREPA. Lying about not having the parts to cover the inefficiency of PREPA is outrageous and those responsible must be taken before state and federal authorities to be criminally processed immediately.

    I wasn’t blaming trump for what happened in PR, terrible things are the result during catastrophic happenings—and there is always plenty of blame to go around. Just as I don’t blame Rudy G. for many of the deaths of the first responders during 9/11. One of the first documents to cross his desk after being sworn in as Mayor of NY in 1994, was the immediate and dire need for radios and communication equipment that was effective in the tunnels and communicated with the various other first responders around the city. It was not forthcoming in the numbers necessary. When humans are involved, funds are limited, decisions have to be made, it is future and unknown circumstances that prove whether or not the best decisions were made.

    My issue with trump is his constant and relentless show of lack of empathy and the tweets, comments and speeches of denial of anything that he thinks makes him look bad without any evidence or knowledge. As long as he acts in a deplorable, disgusting, dishonest and ignorant manner he will be labeled and known as being deplorable, disgusting, dishonest and ignorant.

    ...it is trump that should be replaced, not General Mattis!

    All of this BS about the hurricane in PR was brought about by a question. What was learned from the hurricane in PR was asked of DA. He decided to make it what it is now.

    Default Re: Trump's Milestones


    I realize that unless you subscribe to the Washington Post, if you have already viewed too many of their articles this month you may not be able to access this link; I think it is important for one to know what trump thinks of his supporters...

    Trump really hates apologizing for misogyny and racism. New reporting explains why.

    President Trump does not believe that people — that white men like himself — should have to apologize for their public displays of misogyny or racism. But this isn’t simply because he doesn’t want to give ground to critics out of stubbornness or a fear of displaying weakness.

    Rather, the refusal to apologize for these things is itself a political statement, even a statement of values. And you can bet that many of his supporters hear it in precisely this way.

    ...

    Trump’s aides believe this is largely rooted in his penchant for nonstop salesmanship and hyperbole, and his certainty that his voters will swallow whatever he tells them. As the Post piece puts it, Trump “tells senior aides that his supporters will believe his version of events.”

    This once again displays Trump’s seething contempt for his own voters’ intelligence. But beyond this, on certain occasions when this happens, something even uglier than that is at work. The Post piece contains this revelation:

    He has also complained that aides publicly admitted mistakes earlier this year over their handling of allegations that former White House staff secretary Rob Porter was emotionally and physically abusive toward his two ex-wives. “You should have never apologized,” he told a group of communications aides, according to two people. “You don’t ever apologize.”

    ... insight into Trump’s instincts in this regard. Trump’s highest profile offer of something approaching an apology came after he blamed “many sides” for the white supremacist violence and murder in Charlottesville. Under pressure from aides, Trump then gave a second speech condemning anti-black racism more directly, decrying the “KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups.”

    But as Woodward recounts, Trump privately chafed at doing this. When a top adviser showed him a draft of that second speech, Trump said: “This doesn’t feel right to me.” The adviser concluded, as Woodward puts it, that Trump didn’t want to “bend to political correctness.”

    This reluctance to bend to political correctness was also on display at another very critical moment: After the news broke during the campaign that Trump had been caught on the “Access Hollywood” video boasting of committing sexual assault with impunity. With his campaign in temporary collapse, Trump did release a video message apologizing, albeit in a tone that had the air of a forced confession.

    But Woodward’s reporting suggests that this didn’t remotely reflect his real sentiments. Woodward recounts a remarkable episode in which Trump and his advisers debated whether he should do a TV interview and reiterate his apology. His advisers handed him language in which he would admit that his vile language (which included boasting about grabbing women by the “p—y”) was “not acceptable for a president.”


    But Trump exploded. “I can’t do this,” he raged. “This is weak. You guys are weak.” Once elected, Trump even took to suggesting that the voice on the tape wasn’t his.

    ...

    Trump views racial discord as a positive — the more of it, the better. The whole point is the deliberate provocation of racial tensions, both out of genuine racist conviction and the belief that it tightens his political bond with his supporters. Trump pardoned racist Joe Arpaio as “a way of pleasing his political base.” He revived his attacks on football players for the act of protesting racism because this “revs up his political base.” After Trump deliberately stoked racial discord after Charlottesville, Stephen K. Bannon subsequently said it would be a political winner for the president.

    ...
    What Trump basically declares again and again, in one form or another, is that those who demand resistance to our basest and most divisive and hateful instincts should just shut up and stop ruining all the fun. Instead, by all means, go ahead and revel in them — without apology.

    Anderson Cooper shuts down a lying donnie trump jr. who accuses him of making daddy look bad...what actually happened is Cooper made donnie jr look stupid as well as a liar just like daddy. Why do they think someone has to make them look bad? They accomplish that expertly themselves.

    from CNN what else would you expect. Notice Anderson Cooper caught standing in a ditch to hype up flooding.

    He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check
    I flipped my channel back to CNN and I lit another cigarette

    Did you watch the video??? It was in Texas 10 years ago!!! — when daddy was just another sleezy lying whoremonger, just like he is today only now he is, regrettably, also president of this country.

    So, why in the world are you criticizing CNN for junior’s lying idiotic comments??? Really??? This is just another example of the value of the usual “defense” of things trump...trying to defend the indefensible...
