America denies Puerto Rico request for waiver to bring vital fuel and supplies to island


The Independent has the story America denies Puerto Rico request for waiver to bring vital fuel and supplies to island.

The Trump administration on Tuesday denied a request to waive shipping restrictions to help get fuel and supplies to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, saying it would do nothing to address the island’s main impediment to shipping, damaged ports.

Naomi Klein has written a book to describe the type of thing Trump is doing. The book is titles The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.

I have written a number of posts about this book as far back as 2008 – The Shock Doctrine in 2010, The Shock Doctrine in 2008, Trump’s Shock Doctrine in 2017, Harvey Didn’t Come Out of the Blue. Now is the Time to Talk About Climate Change in 2017. You can search this site for Naomi Klein to find more posts.
