A series of “rolling blackouts” have hit Puerto Rico over the past month, and the frequency of all the blackouts is increasing.
Over the past three years, electrical blackouts have increased by 449 percent throughout the island. 1,007 service interruptions were reported in 2013…and in 2015, the interruptions rose to 5,707.
This represents over 15 blackouts per day, in every area of the island.
This doesn’t happen only in remote rural areas. Just three days ago, in July 29-30, major areas of San Juan were thrown into darkness.
There is a bitter irony in this. The blackouts are occurring even though people are paying 300% more for their electricity in Puerto Rico than in New York City, and the rates are scheduled to rise by another 15-20% over the next six months.
Another irony is a recent announcement by the Puerto Rico Senate, that they would conduct an “investigation” into all of these blackouts. But the Commonwealth government itself, has been the greatest source of corruption with regard to PREPA.
OVER $100 MILLION IN POLITICAL KICKBACKS
According to current a lawsuit in Washington, D.C. federal court, a “Fuel Oil Cartel” in Puerto Rico poisoned the air and water in Puerto Rico for 13 years, from 2002 till 2015. This lawsuit charges that government officials received OVER $100 MILLION to “look the other way,” as illegal and poisonous oil was used throughout the entire PREPA power system.
The case is Rolón v. PREPA, and here is the entire 80-page complaint:
In the 80-page complaint, paragraphs 19, 23, 77, 80, 85, 102, 103, and 176 detail the main elements of the conspiracy.
In 1994, PREPA closed its oil testing lab, and started “out-sourcing” all tests to private lab facilities, which falsified the lab test results on oil shipments purchased by PREPA. This enabled the government to buy inferior toxic oil…then pass it off as premium oil.
The federal lawsuit asserts that just one laboratory hired by PREPA – the Caleb Brett Lab – falsified between 500 and 600 test results on this toxic oil, and reported it out as “premium” quality oil.
In this manner, foreign oil companies such as Petrobras made a criminal level of profit, and Puerto Rican politicians pocketed over 100 million in bribes, during the 2002-2015 period.
According to a top executive at Petrobras, Mr. Paulo Roberto Costa, about 3% of his oil company’s contracts were typically “re-invested” in bribes to local government officials.
If this “3% Rule” was applied to Puerto Rico, then the political class of Puerto Rico received over one hundred million dollars in bribes to poison their own people…and possibly OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS ! (see paragraphs 80, 77).
THE FOX INVESTIGATES THE HEN HOUSE
So now, supposedly, the government of Puerto Rico is launching an “investigation” into the thousands of blackouts that are plaguing the island.
But several months ago, the Puerto Rico Senate held an “investigation” into the decades of illegal and toxic sludge oil, the poisoning of Puerto Rico’s air and water, and the over $100 million in bribes reportedly received by government officials in Puerto Rico – in both the PPD and PNP.
What happened with that investigation?
Did anyone go to jail?
The answers are “nothing” and “no.”

The American Indian was practically exterminated off their land…I guess the United States plan for the people of Puerto Rico is to make them sick and starve them off theirs. History is repeating itself. The writing is on the wall. There is a thing called the UNITED NATIONS, but that’s all it is “A THING”.
