Horrors of FEMA disaster relief

"Exclusive: Chuck Norris applauds private efforts to help Hurricane Sandy victims"

Those wise and yet haunting words spoken by one of our nation’s greatest presidents couldn’t ring more true – especially today, as winter sets in on an estimated 130,000 of our fellow Americans who are still struggling without power. Many live without heat, hot water or inhabitable homes and question the government’s efforts to alleviate their condition.

Amid the election frenzy, several mainstream media outlets instantly praised the Obama administration’s response to the Hurricane Sandy devastation in the Northeast. But let’s look beneath the congratulatory headlines to see the real and horrifying picture of what’s happening.

Right now, homeless Americans are literally freezing, wrapped in blankets and trash bags as they struggle to survive in FEMA tent cities such as New Jersey’s “Camp Freedom,” which reportedly “resembles a prison camp.”

“Sitting there last night you could see your breath,” displaced resident Brian Sotelo told the Asbury Park Press. “At (Pine Belt) the Red Cross made an announcement that they were sending us to permanent structures up here that had just been redone, that had washing machines and hot showers and steady electric, and they sent us to tent city. We got (expletived).”

Sotelo said Blackhawk helicopters patrol the ......

Please stop calling the propaganda media the main stream media. They are not mainstream. They are propagandists.

Obama only had time for a photo op. After that, back to campaigning and then the golf course was calling a few days later.

Most of idiot America will never make the connection because they refuse to see it.

Remember Obama’s response to Sandy is credited to giving him the last minute win.

Obama and Fema have failed miserably on Sandy but this article was not released today. I remember reading this article either early last week or perhaps a week and a half ago. It is a re-print. I would like to read a follow up on it.

I'd second that.

Our candidate can kick the crap out of your candidate.

FEMA tent cities such as New Jersey’s “Camp Freedom,” which reportedly “resembles a prison camp.”

Once they were called "Hoovervilles". Now they are rightly called "OBAMAVILLES" and are the new normal for America under the Marxist regime.

Yep.. .oh yes; Obama handled this crisis beautifully.

He arrived on Air Force 1; got the 'New Jersey kiss' from Christie and off he went. No doubt the hardest part of his day; is having to 'pretend' to care. But then; no one ever said; being President would be easy. . .

That said; he got what he came for.

"our fellow Americans who are still struggling without power. Many live without heat, hot water or inhabitable homes and question the government’s efforts to alleviate their condition."

Reminds me of a place called Valley Forge during a certain Winter a long time ago... These people will will get through it and over it, just as others have in similar situations....

(these AREN'T intended to be accepted as words of comfort)

The victims are almost all white folks. There is no political hay to be made from seeing suffering white people on the tube.

Now if they were black people or some other minority it would be different. Of course the President would have to be a white republican.....for all he’ll to break loose.

Well, at least FEMA is getting practice and experience in running refugee, relocation and re-education camps. This will come in handy when the Food Stamp President and his Marxist conspirators crash the economy and institute Agenda 21.

This needs a lot more coverage than it is getting. The media has declared the FEMA effort a success and Obama's rhetoric has been accepted at face value.
