In the same week – practically on the same day – all three branches of the US government attacked the island of Borinquen, under the guise of “helping Puerto Rico.”
The US Congress, US Supreme Court, and Pres. Obama all acted with perfect timing and coordination, to kick Puerto Rico into submission. Here is how they did it…
THE US CONGRESS
On June 9, the US Congress voted by a wide margin (297-127) to pass the PROMESA bill which creates a Financial Control Board in Puerto Rico.
The bill also enables a lower minimum wage of $4.25, for newly-hired young workers in Puerto Rico. This will be the lowest minimum wage – by far – in the entire US.
THE US SUPREME COURT
On that same day of June 9, the US Supreme Court announced a 6-2 majority decision in Puerto Rico v. Sanchez Valle.
In a strongly worded opinion, the Court made it clear that the US owns Puerto Rico as a territory of the US. A colony.
There was no ambiguity in its language: “Puerto Rico became a territory of the United States in 1898, as a result of the Spanish-American War.” It further stated that “U.S. territories are not sovereigns distinct from the United States.”
The decision was immediately and widely reported.
Just three days earlier, on June 6, President Obama announced a “Promise Zone” in the eastern edge of Puerto Rico, which favors billionaire real estate developers John Paulson and Nicholas Prouty, as well as the US developer of the 3,000 acre Roosevelt Roads “entertainment and resort” complex.
Unfortunately, this “promise” to US billionaires comes at the expense of virtually everyone else on the island.
I WILL SELL YOU THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE
If you think this massive re-alignment of all three branches of the US federal government…on practically the same day…is a mere “coincidence,” then there is a large bridge near the southern tip of Manhattan.
It is close to Wall Street and City Hall.
It is a very valuable property called the Brooklyn Bridge.
I own it, and I will sell it to you.
