They pulled back their offer.

Mexico announced on Monday it is withdrawing its offer to send relief to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

As Harvey hit Texas last month, the Mexican government offered food, beds, generators, mobile kitchens and doctors. No formal American response was ever made to the offer.

On Thursday, an 8.1 earthquake struck southern Mexico, killing 96 people and causing a crisis impacting about 2.5 million people. Adding to the nation’s woes, Hurricane Katia hit the Gulf Coast of Mexico, causing flooding and stretching emergency services even thinner.

“Given these circumstance, the Mexican government will channel all available logistical support to serve the families and communities affected in the national territory,” the Mexican foreign ministry statement said.

The ministry said the U.S. had taken nine days to respond to Mexico’s offer and that “only certain logistical aid” was ever accepted.

Although government aid never arrived, Mexico’s volunteer Red Cross sent food and supplies to storm victims.

That assistance, however, has been overshadowed by political differences between Mexico and the U.S.

For example, former Mexican president Vicete Fox tweeted that President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was “on the top of the vilest acts” Trump has ever “pulled off.”

“You’re destroying the legacy of greater men before you,” Fox wrote.

“It is the worst action you have ever done against the ones that cannot defend themselves,” he said in a separate video. “This measure is cruel and heartless, worse than any machine.”

Trump, for his part, has recently criticized Mexico on trade issues.

With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.

“With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other,” Trump tweeted.

Mexican media also highlighted the fact that Trump has not spoken about the earthquake.

What do you think?

   I am sure that FEMA was grateful for the AID that MEXICO originally made for the American victims of the TEXAS and FLORIDA Hurricanes.

   But from what I hear, 20 Straw Filled mattreses,  500 soft Tacos, 200 PINIATAs (filled with cocaine) 350,000 illegal aliens, 2 Donkeys,  a signed Photo of  "Pancho"Villa, and a pair of stained underpants of Generalissimo SANTA ANA, after he was captured by SAM HOUSTON and thousands of TEXANS after The Mexican General slaughtered the entire AMERICAN male defenders of  "The ALAMO" ............... The FEMA people considered the intended donation was NOT  suitable  for the HURRICAINE RELIEF.

  Then came the MEXICAN EARTHQUAKE and Former Mexican Presidente Vincente FOX blamed it on President TRUMP !!!!!  TYPICAL !!!!   For that,...........we should build the "WALL" 10 Feet Higher than intended !!!!!

So good, both of you!

Screw Mexico! Build that Wall!

I'm surprised Trump hasn't made a trip to FL yet since Irma hit......  hmmm?

 From what I hear, the Runways at all the Airports in the area are still not functioning at maximum yet.  As a former Air Traffic Controller, I can tell you that a "HIT" to an Airport by a Storm such as IRMA, does NOT present itself well. safety wise, for a "JUGGERNAUT" of a Plane such as AIR FORCE ONE. Remember, the Cadre of Secret Service, and hundreds of support staff, vehicles, Press, and scads of others are to be considered on a visit by the POTUS. Cut him some slack..... He will make it in due time,........ the people are STILL digging themselves out as well too !!!

Maybe.  BUT............he has a helicopter too...  How many SS do you need when nearly the entire state was evacuated?

So far I think Gov. Scott has done a phenomenal job with directing services in this terrible time for Florida. Law Enforcement has been exemplary always siding on safety of the people and no gun confiscation following the example of the Virgin Islands, a US territory under the umbrella of the Constitution of the United States of America a impeachment of the gov. of the islands may be in order.
Trump will be along directly I think Florida is in good hands with Scott at the helm.
God Bless America!
It takes only one dumb a** democrat and the nation is at the half way mark with those critters.
It's sad that two natural disasters took place for us to be a little optimistic about our own countrymen.

I find it strange that 9/11 and these two disasters happened at the same time of the year..... hmmmmm

YES !!!!  You could say that God has a peculiar way of sending messages !!!!!!!!

AL GORE would say it was "GLOBAL WARMING !!!!!!




California Democrat Predicts
‘Widespread Civil Unrest’
If Trump Fires Mueller

California Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu predicted Monday there will be “widespread civil unrest” if President Donald Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller.

“If the president does go ahead and fire Robert Mueller, we would have people take to the streets,” Lieu told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

“I believe there would be widespread civil unrest because Americans believe the rule of law is paramount.”

“You think there would be widespread civil unrest?” Hayes asked.

“I do. I think you’re going have protests and marches and rallies and sit-ins. I believe Americans would not stand for the firing of Robert Mueller,” Lieu replied.

Trump’s tweets last week have fueled speculation he plans to get rid of Mueller, who was appointed May 2017 to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump called the Mueller probe a “witch hunt,” which “should never have been started.” 

The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired. How many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife’s campaign by Crooked H friend, Terry M, who was also under investigation? How many lies? How many leaks? Comey knew it all, and much more!


Trump lawyer John Dowd believes the Mueller investigation should come to an end, he said over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, which added fuel to the fire.

White House special counsel Ty Cobb issued a statement on Sunday, denying Trump plans to fire Mueller.

Trump would either have to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions or fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in order to shut down the Mueller investigation.

Rosenstein serves as acting attorney general for the Russia investigation because Sessions recused himself from the matter due to his involvement with the Trump campaign.

Sessions’ and/or Rosenstein’s replacements could shut down the Mueller investigation if the two were forced out of their positions.
