Donald Trump Has Yet To Visit Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria has knocked out all the power on the island of Puerto Rico, in addition to completely flooding it. Anywhere a person might go involves wading or swimming, and there is virtually no wifi or cell phone service. Could this be why Donald Trump has not bothered to visit Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria? President Obama would have bothered. Even while campaigning for president during 2012, he immediately cancelled his campaign stops in order to survey the damage caused on the East Coast by Hurricane Sandy. Many, many people in New Jersey and New York were also left without electricity, but that did not stop President Obama from responding to his constituents.

Anyone who needs to find out if a friend or relative in Puerto Rico is safe can or call the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration's Office in Washington DC at 202-800-8133 or 202-778-0710. The island's government radio station, WIPR, can be reached at 787-777-0940 and 787-766-0505. Puerto Rico's disaster relief team can be emailed at, and, of course, the Red Cross is accepting donations and training volunteers.

Maybe Donald Trump is waiting for electricity and wifi before he visits Puerto Rico. He is, after all, not accustomed to any sort of inconvenience or difficulty.

Lyon Sisters And Lloyd Lee Welch

Last week, Lloyd Lee Welch pleaded guilty to the kidnapping and subsequent murders of Katherine Lyon, 12 years old, and Sheila Lyon, 10 years old, both of Kensington, Maryland, in March of 1975. For forty years, their disappearance was a mystery, until Montgomery County Police in Maryland decided to look over the files and the composite drawing of a man who had been seen following them. From there, they realized that Lloyd Lee Welch had paid them a visit, in a vain effort to collect reward money for knowledge of their whereabouts immediately after they disappeared. He failed a polygraph, so they didn't take him seriously. This makes him the first person of whom I have ever heard to be turned loose by the police for failing a polygraph.

I thought I would feel better after Lloyd Lee Welch went to court to enter his guilty plea in the 1975 murders of Sheila and Katherine Lyon, but I really don't. The message from Maryland is sadly clear: child abuse, including but not limited to murder, is still okey-dokey with Maryland authorities. I have yet to see Maryland authorities actually care what happens to children, even children of the rich and famous. We still do not know the whole story, and we still have not recovered the girls' remains.

We Crashed The Cassini

We crashed the Cassini into Saturn, after it voyaged for twenty years. We didn't want it to crash on its own into one of Saturn's moons, which might support life, so we crashed it into the planet's atmosphere. We got quite a few pictures of Saturn and its moons over the years. Below is one of them.

Donald Trump Lied About The Wiretaps

Well, what else is new? Donald Trump lied about the character of a good person. As it happens, his claim that President Obama wiretapped his silly-assed phone conversations at Trump Tower was a complete fabrication. Yes, there was an investigation in progress. When people constantly involve themselves in fraud, money laundering, civil torts of almost all descriptions, and lie constantly, various law enforcement agencies tend to investigate. Especially when said people do those things with our nation's enemies. If Donald Trump cannot do the time, however it may present itself, he should not do the crime(s).

Visa Number 26698

Mary Anne MacLeod, mother of Donald Trump, immigrated to the United States from Scotland in 1930. Her visa number was 26698. She was, apparently, not in violation of any immigration laws that were in place at the time. She traveled in and out of this country, and married Fred Trump, Donald Trump's father, in 1936. The discrepancy that has raised a few eyebrows is the fact that on a 1940 census, she and her husband lied about her status here in the United States, claiming that she was a naturalized citizen. Mary Anne did not become naturalized until 1942, if at all. The documentation of naturalization the donald's mother is unclear.

Fast forward to today. Donald Trump, the so-called president of the United States, has ordered that Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, be reversed, deporting at least 800,000 young men and women who have been in this country since early childhood, and do not know any other home.Unfortunately, life is not always fair, and the illegal immigrant parents of these children, now grown, should not have put their children in such a terrible position. In light of the circumstances of Trump's parents, having lied to government officials about his mother's citizenship here in America; his first wife's questionable immigration, illegally immigrating to Canada from behind the Iron Curtain,before shacking up with Donald Trump; and his third wife's immigration crime of working for pay on a non-working visa, many, many people are wondering if Trump and his children born to foreign consorts should be deported along with all the people he wants to kick out of America. These are things that get immigrants deported instead of welcomed.

Here is the legendary Woody Guthrie, with a song he wrote for Fred Trump. One can clearly see how the donald was brought up.
