I do not support Donald Trump.
But this not alter the fact that Hillary Clinton – and the entire Democratic Party – are taking Puerto Ricans for suckers in the 2016 election.
Clinton took massive campaign contributions from hedge funds that own the “public debt” of Puerto Rico.
She lobbied for the PROMESA bill.
She perpetuated the conditions that forced hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans to move to Florida. And now…those Puerto Ricans will vote for “Hillary” next week.
Hillary hispandering in San Juan
They will swing Florida for Hillary Clinton…and this critical Puerto Rican vote…could put Hillary in the White House.
This is not a “theory.” It is being reported around the country, right now.
A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW
This is a painful irony.
It is further evidence, of the perverse position of Puerto Ricans in US society…a position which forces us to reward people, for kicking us in the teeth.
Hillary Clinton, Pres. Obama, and his administration pushed Puerto Rico into financial insolvency. They refused to offer any bankruptcy relief, Jones Act reform, Treasury Dept. solutions, or executive orders of any sort. They even lobbied for the PROMESA legislation, and for a Financial Control Board.
BAILOUTS FOR WALL STREET
Immediately after entering the White House, Pres. Obama bailed out nearly every investment bank on Wall Street – even though all of them had trafficked in subprime mortgages, and had knowingly created the mortgage crisis of 2007.
Within two months of taking office, in March 2009, Obama approved and presided over the $182 billion bailout of AIG, even though AIG had already been fined $1.6 billion for securities fraud, and criminal charges had been filed by the SEC against several AIG executives.
Everyone, including the top CEOs, received their Christmas bonuses at AIG – even as millions of people lost their homes.
Altogether, the 2008 taxpayer bailout of Wall Street cost ONE TRILLION DOLLARS.
CONTROL BOARDS FOR PUERTO RICO
But everything changes, when the island needs some help. There is a double standard for Puerto Ricans.
For nearly two years, Obama completely ignored the Puerto Rico economic crisis. His only advice was “talk to Congress.” The president took no action, and accepted no responsibility, for the economic meltdown in Puerto Rico.
Then on June 29, 2015 – after doling out one trillion dollars to white collar criminals on Wall Street – Pres. Obama announced that “There’s no one in the administration or in D.C. that’s contemplating a federal bailout of Puerto Rico.”
He was perfectly willing to let Puerto Rico fall into a death spiral…with no bankruptcy protection, no access to credit markets, and no ability to repay $72 billion.
In fact, it was the Obama administration that convinced the US Supreme Court – in the Sanchez Valle and Franklin Trust cases – that Puerto Rico is a territorial possession of the US.
PROFITING FROM THE ISLAND’S MISERY
More than one year ago, we warned that Obama and Hillary Clinton might want Puerto Rico to fail.
For a very cynical reason.
If Puerto Rico fails, this forces more Puerto Ricans to move to Florida – and to New York, North Carolina, Arizona, Texas – where they become Democratic voters in the 2016 presidential election.
In other words…Obama, Clinton and the Democratic Party would actually benefit, if the Puerto Rican economy sinks into the Caribbean.
The Democratic Party game plan for 2016
This is a brutal, inhuman calculus…the type that has been used in Puerto Rico since 1898.
It is so brutal, that many people scoffed and ridiculed when we issued this warning about the 2016 election.
“Stop the conspiracy theories!” they said.
OMG…IF TIME MAGAZINE SAYS IT…THEN IT MUST BE TRUE!
But now this warning is being confirmed.
One year after our analysis here in War Against All Puerto Ricans…
Vox published a major story on it, just two days ago. The headline of the Vox report says it all:
“Puerto Rico’s collapsing economy could win the election for Hillary Clinton”
It is sad to see Puerto Ricans kicked in the teeth, and taken for granted.
It is sickening to watch multi-millionaire politicians – with $10 million book deals and billion dollar foundations – as they engineer and profit from the misery.
For over a year, we’ve been warning about it.
Now that Time Magazine woke up…pricked up her ears…and wrote the story…OMG!…then it must be true.
For a history of the War Against All Puerto Ricans, read the book…
