WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

US Senator Elizabeth Warren is open to statehood for Puerto Rico

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

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) honored our website with a comment last week.

In response to our article about the obstacles to Puerto Rican statehood, the Senator left a detailed message. She supports a clear process for considering the statehood of Puerto Rico. Here is the Senator, in her own words…

Thank you, Senator Warren.

Despite our skepticism on the likelihood of congressional consent to Puerto Rican statehood, there is now another dynamic.

Sen. Warren has committed herself to a fair-minded consideration of the status issue…rooted in human principle rather than economic interest.

It is uncertain that a GOP congress and a Trump White House will follow her example…but we salute Sen. Elizabeth Warren, for her leadership and overriding humanity.

Oscar López Rivera is ALREADY in Puerto Rico!

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

Oscar López Rivera is no longer in Terra Haute federal prison. Yesterday, February 9, he was quietly transferred out of Indiana, and out of the US mainland.

Oscar is ALREADY in Puerto Rico!

He is not in a halfway house, or other penitentiary environment. He is in his daughter Clarisa’s home. This was accomplished with some restrictions…one of which is that, until May 17th, he cannot be interviewed by the press.

After May 17, huge celebrations for Oscar will occur in Puerto Rico, Chicago, New York City, and many other communities throughout the nation.

At 74 years of age, this quiet transfer of Oscar López Rivera made a great deal of sense. According to prior reports, Oscar will undertake a community relations position that was offered to him by Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, the mayor of San Juan.

If you’d like to learn more about Oscar López Rivera, he has written two excellent autobiographical books which are available on Amazon, and in the El Candíl bookstore in Ponce, Puerto Rico.

The first one is Between Torture and Resistance    

The second is Cartas a Karina

Both books contain personal stories and original art work by Oscar Lopez Rivera.

We wish Oscar great peace and happiness, now that he has returned to his beloved homeland.

Meet Oscar López Rivera

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

After 35 years, Oscar López Rivera will finally go home. Millions of e-mails, phone calls, and petition signatures…hundreds of marches and rallies…until finally Pres. Obama commuted his sentence. 

But many people don’t know about Oscar’s childhood, early years and family life. Or his community activism in Chicago, or his heroism in Vietnam. This excellent video pulls it all together, all in one place…

Oscar López Rivera, líder Puertorriqueño y preso politico

As the largest 501(c)(3) Latino TV broadcasting network in the US and Puerto Rico, HITN (Hispanic International Television Network) provides excellent research and information about our Latino community. This wonderful video about Oscar López Rivera, is a perfect example of HITN’s programming and community involvement.

In the future, HITN will develop many more programs and videos about Puerto Rico, Oscar López Rivera, and the history and future of our island.

Well done, HITN !

Independence or Statehood? Puerto Rico will soon vote on it…on June 11

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

In just four months, on June 11 of this year, Puerto Rico will hold a referendum on whether to become independent, a US state, or continue suffering as a “US commonwealth.” 

The ballot will provide two options: “Independence/Free Association” or “Statehood.” If a majority chooses the first option, then a second referendum will be held in October, to decide between “independence” and “free association.”

Historically, the island has already held four referenda on its political status: in 1967, 1993, 1998 and 2012.

Nothing changed.

It is highly doubtful that this 2017 referendum will be any different. In fact, every indication is that – politically, economically, socially – the US is not prepared to welcome Puerto Rico with open arms, as the 51st state.

“Colonialism is not an option for Puerto Rico,” said Gov. Ricky Roselló, as he praised this upcoming referendum.

We certainly agree…and after this referendum, when the US Congress refuses to extend statehood to Puerto Rico, we expect that Gov. Roselló will embrace the only remaining option…independence.

Will Donald Trump pull the US out of the UN?

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

 

Pres. Trump recently tweeted that the UN is “just a club for people to get together, talk, and have a good time.” Trump also stated that “as to the UN, things will be different after January 20th.” Now in early January, a bill was submitted to congress…which would pull the US out of the UN.

This raises two questions: is the US preparing to withdraw from the UN?  And what would this mean for Puerto Rico?

THE AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY ACT OF 2017

The congressional bill to withdraw from the UN, HR 193, is known as the American Sovereignty Act of 2017.

It is sponsored by a group of southern GOP congressmen from Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina, Arizona and Florida.

The bill is nothing new – in fact, this same bill has been submitted to congress every year, for the past 20 years. It has never come close to passage, and it is unlikely to receive enough support in 2017, either.

But that is not the point of this American Sovereignty Act.

CREATING CHAOS

The 2017 Sovereignty Act – the mere filing of it – signals a pending US retrenchment from the world community. Trump is creating elbow room, positioning himself and his government as a lone wolf.

This is consistent with his contempt for NATO, and his disregard for both the 2015 Paris Agreement and the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, regarding global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.    

This “elbow room” is necessary for the Trump brand.

Donald Trump did not play well with other children…and now as an adult…Trump does not play well with other heads of state. He wants to tell them when to jump and how high. And if they don’t do it, they’re fired.

In other words, chaos is Donald Trump’s friend. Chaos will offer Trump the opportunity to surprise and intimidate other world leaders. And so Trump will create…chaos.

It worked for him throughout his business career. It worked for him as a political candidate. Now he’ll do it as President.

HURRICANE DONALD HITS PUERTO RICO

If Trump continues to ridicule and subordinate the role of the UN, it will place Puerto Rico in a more difficult position, with regard to demanding its independence.

Whether or not the US secedes from the UN will be immaterial…because if Trump refuses to recognize the authority – or even the moral relevance – of the UN, then as President of the US, Trump will simply ignore anything the UN says with respect to Puerto Rico.

Pres. Trump will simply point to the Sanchez Valle and Franklin Trust cases, and invoke the Supremacy and Territorial Clauses of the US constitution.

He will play the “strict constructionist,” even as he violates the First Amendment and Equal Protection rights of half the nation.

In keeping with his America First philosophy, Trump will tell Puerto Rico to “stay in its place.”

He will back the Financial Control Board to the hilt, and after dozens of “Public Private Partnerships” have consumed Puerto Rico…

The island will look like Hurricane Donald blew right through it.
