President Obama…the Pontius Pilate of Puerto Rico

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

 

On January 12, 2016, throughout a 58-minute State of the Union speech, US President Obama said nothing about Puerto Rico’s economic crisis.

He did not mention Puerto Rico at all…not even once.

This of course, is the Pontius Pilate maneuver.

During all of 2015, the White House repeatedly stated that there would be “no bailout for Puerto Rico,” but urged Congress to “consider a Chapter 9 bankruptcy amendment” for the island.

Now in a presidential election year, Obama renews his rhetoric. According to El Nuevo Dia, he recently “had a meeting” with Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, in which the Puerto Rican economy was on “their list of priorities.”

Obama also reiterated his hope that “Congress would allow Puerto Rico to re-structure its debt.”

A GROWING STENCH IN THE WHITE HOUSE

This “hope that Congress will act” increasingly looks like political posturing.

Obama knows that Congress will extend no Chapter 9 bankruptcy relief to Puerto Rico. He knows that the municipal bond industry is a $3.7 trillion annual business…and any bankruptcy relief for Puerto Rico would de-stabilize this business, because all 50 states would then demand expanded bankruptcy privileges.

And so, Obama strikes a pose.

 

 

For an entire year the Latino press, advocacy groups and elected officials have frantically contacted the White House…yet Pres. Obama does nothing about the crisis.

He doesn’t champion any Jones Act reform. He doesn’t order his Treasury Secretary to ease credit restrictions in Puerto Rico. He doesn’t tell his Secretaries of Commerce, Transportation, Energy, or the Interior, to make any infrastructure investments in the island.

Instead he sits back, and points the finger at a “Republican Congress” – knowing full well, that three dozen hedge funds are preparing to grab the entire physical infrastructure of Puerto Rico (water supply, electrical grid, highways, bridges, schools, airports, prisons) and turn it into one giant ATM.

With each passing week, there is a growing stench of political posturing…and it is coming from the White House.

THE DEMOCRATIC STRATEGY: DO NOTHING FOR PUERTO RICO 

There is now a growing rumor that Obama wants Puerto Rico to fail…because this will force more Puerto Ricans to move to Florida, and become Democratic voters in the 2016 presidential election.

Like a modern day Machiavelli, Obama and the Democratic Party may have decided on the following strategy:

  1. Do nothing for Puerto Rico
  2. Take political contributions from the hedge funds
  3. Increase the number of angry Puerto Ricans in Florida
  4. Blame Republicans for the entire mess
  5. Receive money from Wall Street, and votes from Orlando, FL

In other words, from a political standpoint, Obama benefits from doing nothing for Puerto Rico, and then blaming the Republicans for it.

THE PONTIUS PILATE OF PUERTO RICO 

The people of Puerto Rico are being squeezed by their own political parties, the Jones Act, John Paulson, Goldman Sachs, US hedge funds…and within a few months, a collection agency for those hedge funds called a “Financial Control Authority.”

In this chaos of capitalism run amok, Pres. Obama washes his hands like Pontius Pilate – allowing Wall Street to consume Puerto Rico, then “blaming the Republicans” for it.

This is an old game.

For Puerto Rico, this game has lasted 118 years.

Pedro Albizu Campos once said, “according to the US, owning one man makes you a scoundrel, but owning an entire nation makes you a colonial benefactor.” 

Barack Obama would never condone the enslavement of a black man. 

But he washes his hands, during the enslavement of an entire Puerto Rican nation.

  3. I say to Padilla, Don’t give a penny red cent to the Banks. The worst thing that can happen is Puerto Rico getting its Independence. As the Americanos say the ball is on Americas Court. Let the Banks fight America for the money, They hold the Deed for Puerto Rico.

    The last line of your comment was sheer poetry…from Patrick Henry to Johnny Cochran.

    What a dramatic inversion!

    With all the ambush of an H.H. Munro (Saki) and/or O.Henry.

    A droll and perfect statement of our zeitgeist.

    From die to sue indeed!

    I salute your craftsmanship, subliminal or not.

    I always had “hope” in the “change” this man was going to bring. i voted for this man twice. I always “had his back”. I defended/excused him because of the obstacles he’s faced with the GOP who have stopped him. I didn’t understand when a great friend, who felt similarly about him until “Ferguson” happened and black lives continued to be “lost” and Obama didn’t do enough.
    I’m upset at him and the Dems. Here’s why:
    “The people of Puerto Rico are being squeezed by their own political parties, the Jones Act, John Paulson, Goldman Sachs, US hedge funds … and within a few months, a collection agency for those hedge funds called a “Financial Control Authority.”
