The Governor of Puerto Rico declares: at last Puerto Rico belongs to us!

Book - 12-10

 

In a bizarre press conference on July 1, Governor Garcia-Padilla celebrated the pending arrival of a Financial Control Board (FCB) in Puerto Rico. 

According to the governor, the FCB will “liberate Puerto Rico” from U.S. hedge funds, and their strangle-hold on the Puerto Rican economy.
 

 
“As of today, Puerto Rico is protected from these creditors,” said the governor. “As of today, the creditors cannot sue us to take away our country, or sue us to shut down our government.”

The governor is technically correct…the creditors will not sue Puerto Rico to take away their country, because the FCB will do it for them. There will be no need to sue.

Also, the creditors will not sue to shut down the government of Puerto Rico…because the FCB will already have shut it. So again, there will be no need to sue.

In the end, the only explanation for this ridiculous press conference, is that Gov. Garcia-Padilla has hired himself out as the chief publicist for the FCB.

One week before this strange press conference, on June 24, the governor’s PPD party tried to “privatize” the beaches of Puerto Rico. Later on, the PPD tabled the “private beaches” bill in the Puerto Rico Senate…but the propaganda battle had already been won.

The Puerto Rican legislature put the beaches in play, and thereby eased the way for the FCB and U.S. billionaires – like John Paulson and Nicholas Prouty – to “privatize” those same beaches later on.

Gov. Garcia-Padilla’s press conferences are such an insult to the intelligence, that even a 5-year old can see through them. Garcia-Padilla is such a clumsy publicist, that he almost evokes pity.

But pity is a luxury that Puerto Rico cannot afford.

This governor is doing great harm…because his agenda is not to protect Puerto Rico, but to profit from it.

  1. O.K., now that we are on the subject of a national economic deficit of approximately 75 billion dollars, why has not these legislators and the public asked about the USA trillions of dollars deficits? Why has none questioned; “How do they do it?” How does the USA continue to function economically as if nothing has accord? Can you please instruct these little people and small island in the Caribbean, how they can also, make money and utilize it without questioning their amount of “Gold-Bars” in storage to justify the debt, and its value to our adversaries? The same creditors for examples such as China exploiting the entire planet!!!

  2. I am very Disappointed at his Statement, Puerto Rico will continue to be Slaves for for the United States the next 40 plus years and the people will feel the Pinch one way or another. The Rich will get Richer while the People will be working for less then 5 Dollars an Hour until that money is Paid off, Then What, there will not be any Happy Days ahead. Congress will still be in Control.( Padilla will you still be getting you Pay with Increases every Year Or are you Getting Payed Off for you to convince the People that its a Great DEAL.

  7. Puerto Rico was promised protection 118 years ago, as soon those pirates landed and started killing our people. Puerto Rico has been ptotected by first a military invasion, protected by stealing the land, protected by enforcing their Jim Crow laws, protected by bombing Vieques for many years destroying the land and poisoning the people, protection by not letting Puerto Rico buy other goods from other countries ( Jone’s act ) and charging higher tariffs. And now this clown says Puerto Rico will again be protected by this Financial Control Board ( FCB ). How much more protection can the people of Puerto Rico get? All this protection and now a bill of 72 billion dollars. Is there a SURCHARGE on this extra PROTECTION?
