CURRENT EVENT COMMENTARY
By Fred Wickert


It is well known that our country is facing a highly unusual number of extremely large problems. We have unprecedented hurricane damage in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Some Americans are not even aware that the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are a part of our country, but they are.

We also have the threat of a lunatic in North Korea who is threatening nuclear war against us and our allies. We have an organization named ANTIFA producing violence everywhere they can and claim it is against Fascism. The trouble is, they don’t even understand the term. If they did, they wouldn’t be doing it. We have another organization called Black Lives Matter, advocating the murder of as many police officers around the country as they can.

Today we have a new problem to deal with that happened last night in Las Vegas where a nut case opened fire with weapons altered to make them fully automatic on a crowd of thousands of fans at the end of a music concert, killing more than 50 and wounding more than 500 innocent citizens before killing himself.

That ladies and gentlemen is a huge load that might collapse any nation but ours.

We also have a political situation that is the most sickening situation I have ever seen. We had an election for President of the United States. The Democrats cheated like crazy and played every dirty trick in the book, and still lost. They cannot accept it and have been behaving like a bunch of spoiled rotten children ever since.

Eighty percent or more of the news media in the country has become crooked and is behaving like an arm of the Democratic party. They spew lies of hate in a steady diet, and unfortunately we have a large segment of the population who actually believe every word they say.

Now, in Puerto Rico, after being creamed by two maximum sized hurricanes in under two weeks time, people are clinging desperately to life. This is a time and place where we all should forget politics and should work together in unison to help these people. Do we? Oh no, not us. Even this disaster, where human life by the millions is hanging in the balance, we have to have political fighting.

The federal government of the United States has moved huge quantities of everything one can think of to Puerto Rico to help. Local people are doing okay, but people in remote communities have had no aid at all. The Mayor of San Juan is blaming President Trump for not doing enough. Yet, today it has come to light that there are stacks and stacks of goods piled up on the docks in San Juan for distribution, but the Mayor of San Juan will not allow anyone to move them. Why? Because the Democrat party has told her to do what she could to make President Trump look bad.

Also today, 20% of the truck drivers showed up for work. There is a line of trucks as far as the eye can see, it is reported, loaded with supplies to be delivered to the people in need in inland towns. They are not moving and 80% of the drivers have not showed up. Why?

Frente Amplio, a group of private contractors that make up the Puerto Rican version of the Teamsters Union, claimed to take orders from the Democrat Party, are refusing to distribute the supplies in revenge for policies they view as harmful to them, set by the governor of Puerto Rico.

I say to you all, that this is no time for politics. This is no time for any politics, let alone dirty politics. There are many lives at stake! There is no place for politics in this.

This is a time for all Americans to put aside their differences. This is a time to save lives and to save the country from falling apart.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND FOR THE LOVE OF COUNTRY, STOP BEING ANYTHING BUT AN AMERICAN. STOP THE CHILDISHNESS AND GROW UP! SAVE PEOPLES LIVES. HELP YOUR FELLOW HUMAN BEING. Remember, next time you might need the help. Will it be there?
