Governor Garcia Padilla tells the United Nations: “Puerto Rico just became a colony!”

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


The Governor of Puerto Rico recently filed papers with the United Nations which complain of a “shift” in the US position toward Puerto Rico.

According to Gov. Garcia Padilla, the US, suddenly and without warning, now considers Puerto Rico as its territorial possession…in other words, a colony.


The governor was shocked at this “shift” in US policy. He drafted a highly agitated letter, which was delivered to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.!ixICKVpts6sZY/

This “shock” by Gov. Garcia Padilla is quite comical.

It reminds us of the moment in Casablanca, when Claude Rains shouts to Humphrey Bogart: “I am shocked…shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”

For the more classically inclined, it also reminds us of Hamlet, when Queen Gertrude proclaims: “the lady doth protest too much, methinks.”


Indeed, the lady doth protest too much.

It is difficult to take Gov. Garcia Padilla’s “shock” very seriously. The US Congress has been treating this governor like an errand boy, since the day he took office.

Wall Street is telling him what to do, when to jump, and how high.

A Financial Control Board – which he himself recommended in his own “economic development plan” – is about to take over his entire government.

Even José Trías Monge – the legal advisor to Luis Muñoz Marín, Attorney General, Chief Justice of the Puerto Rico Supreme Court, principal architect of the Commonwealth status, and draftsman of the Puerto Rican constitution – concluded his career with this book:

Puerto Rico: The Trials of the Oldest Colony in the World (Yale University Press, 1997).

Unfortunately for Gov. Garcia Padilla, there has been no “shift” in the US position. From 1898 until today, Puerto Rico has remained an “unincorporated territory” of the United States.

From 1898 until today, the US Congress has retained plenary jurisdiction over the entire government of Puerto Rico: the US can veto or ignore any “law” that Puerto Rico passes, due to the territorial and supremacy clauses of the US constitution.

ARTICLE IV, CLAUSE 3, SECTION 2 (The Territorial Clause):

“Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States.”

ARTICLE VI, CLAUSE 2, SECTION 2 (The Supremacy Clause):

“This constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land.”


In other words, according to the US constitution, Puerto Rico is a territory of the US. It belongs to the US, as a piece of property. The law of the US is the supreme law of Puerto Rico.

The so-called “Commonwealth” never changed any of this.


This “Commonwealth” arrangement was a lie. It enabled Luis Muñoz Marín, and 65 years of corrupt politicians, to get elected over and over in Puerto Rico.

Those corrupt politicians sold a MYTH to Puerto Rico, that only now is beginning to unravel.

For 65 years, the PPD sold a “commonwealth” that never existed.

For 65 years, the PNP sold a “statehood” that never arrived.

And now, after 65 years of selling, the game is finally over.

There has been no “shift” in US policy. That policy is written in black and white, in the US constitution.
It was always there, in plain view, for everyone to read. It has never changed, not one word of it.

Since 1898, Puerto Rico has always been…a US colony.

  1. Governor Garcia Padilla, seems that he has not been aware that Puerto Rico, is a possecion of the United States of America. And that the United Nations has no legal or moral standing, to interfere in the United States, territories and possecions.


  2. Pingback: The Governor of Puerto Rico cannot decide whether his country is a colony, or a superpower | WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

  3. The first thing that has to be done is the repeal of the Jones Act and secondly discard the name of Puerto Rico, reverting to the original name of Borinkén.


  4. I can clearly remember when my Dad settled in the Bronx, NY after military service (WW 2). The word was assimilate. He did not want us speaking Spanish at home and thought he was doing what was expected of him. It seems that he like many others have been let down. A Puerto Rican can serve in the US Military, suffer injuries or even die. But if he lives in Puerto Rico, he can’t vote in the Presidential elections of the US. I only hope in my lifetime that my brethren in Puerto Rico will be allowed to raise a generation in prosperity and not being shackled to existing treaties, failed economic policies and imposed laws that do nothing more than hold them motionless in a point in history not allowing for economic and social growth.


  5. This will never be fixed, unless we become State… And our people stop complaining and start producing.


  6. Unfortunately it seems that the “people” of Puerto Rico are literally being squeezed between the Commonwealth and the United States government. What is would like you to know is, we as citizens are completely tired of all of this and would just like to be able to live life in dignity, with jobs, education, and health.At this point schools are closing, hospitals are having electricity taken off (with patients ), our youth and educated are leaving this beautiful island looking for some type of opportunity to be able to live… Our veterans do not have the same as on the mainland. Our elderly are recieving less for medicare and Social Security even though we have been paying all our lives. We are taxed for anything and everything, we have extremely high costs for electric and water.I hope you don’t think this is a complaint it’s just me explaining our situation from the perspective of a regular person who lives here. Thankyou.
