Half of Puerto Rico Is Without Electricity – While Crucial Equipment Hides in a Warehouse?

What’s going on?

Months after Hurricane Maria, close to half the population of Puerto Rico still doesn’t have electricity. Now, the governor of Puerto Rico wants the island’s public utility investigated after federal agents reported crucial rebuilding materials stashed away in a warehouse.

Transformers, metal sleeves and other key materials for rebuilding Puerto Rico’s devastated power grid were in the warehouse. FEMA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers stormed the warehouse to seize the equipment in an armed operation first reported by The Intercept.

And their excuse is … ?

PREPA, Puerto Rico’s public utility, has denied that it purposely kept back materials that were needed to rebuild.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said in a statement: “At a time when it is a priority to restore the power grid in Puerto Rico, I have ordered a legal analysis of this matter so that the people can have the details related to these materials and their storage.”

Glenn’s take:

The federal government has been trying to help Puerto Rico, but sending supplies doesn’t help if they aren’t used properly. Corruption needs to be rooted out first.

“’America should do something’ – we did; it’s sitting in a warehouse,” Glenn said.

GLENN: The air was thick with tension as FEMA agents, U.S Army Corps of Engineers, and their armed security detail entered the warehouse.

They were on a mission to see if the rumors were true.

100 days after Hurricane Maria ripped through the island, half the population is still living without electricity, despite the relief aid and construction materials that were sent to restore the electrical grid.

There was speculation that the Puerto Rican Electric Power Authority (or PREPA for short) had been hoarding these critical materials.

Once inside the warehouse, it was easy to see this was true. It was filled to the brim with equipment and resources.

That explained why FEMA agents were always so perplexed by the lack of construction materials.

PREPA received the equipment to rebuild, they just failed to do anything with it.

So while the people of Puerto Rico are forced to get by without life-saving electricity every day, their salvation has just been sitting in a warehouse.

It’s just another example of government inefficiency and idiocy at the expense of its citizens. How many lives could have been improved or even saved, if PREPA just did their job and distributed the materials?

WATCH: Rudy Giuliani says he has PROOF Joe Biden was business partners with Chinese Communists

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

GLENN’S THEORY: This is why Hunter Biden allegedly abandoned his laptop

We don't yet fully know why or how Hunter Biden's laptop allegedly was abandoned at a computer repair store. But, Glenn has a theory: did Hunter Biden purposely leave his computer — which contains countless materials harmful to his dad's campaign — to make it all stop? Hunter Biden has a troubled past — he has a history of alcohol and drug abuse, and it seems like Joe Biden has used his son for years to enrich the Biden family. So, Glenn thinks, maybe Hunter knew what he was doing…maybe it was a "self-sabotaging" cry for help. It's just a theory, but Glenn thinks it's a theory worth pursuing...

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.
