- Puerto Rico - '110 Years Under U.S.

.
Puerto Rico 110 éve amerikai megszállás alatt

Mi van a népek önrendelkezési jogával?
Mi van a gyarmatosítás felszámolásával?

A Puerto Rico-iaknak nincsenek jogaik?
Ki az amerikaiakkal a karibi szigetről!
Szabadságot a bebörtönzött Puerto Rico-i szabadságharcosoknak!


Függetlenséget MOST!


Puerto Rico - '110 Years Under U.S.
By ED MORALES

We remember Now the 110th anniversary of the U.S.takeover of Puerto Rico, and, unfortunately, its status as one of the world's oldest colonies seems safe.

The United States invaded the island on July 25, 1898, and claimed it as booty after the Spanish-American War. Long since obsolete as a strategic outpost in the Cold War, the Caribbean island is America's best-kept secret: an unfree state within the land of the free.

The island, which had been a Spanish colony for 400 years, was never seriously considered for statehood. Ugly biases got in the way. For instance, in the early 20th century, Sen. Benjamin Tillman from South Carolina questioned whetherthe United States should take on "hundreds of thousands of mongrels of Spanish blood imbued with Spanish thought and action."

Instead, Puerto Rico is an "unincorporated territory," which means that the island is subject to the authority of the U.S. Congress, which can overturn any action by the island's legislature. Puerto Ricans were conferred U.S. citizenship as a result of the Jones Act in 1917, just in time for them to be conscripted as soldiers in World War I.
Some progress has been made in Puerto Rico's ability to determine its own destiny. An elected, native-born
governor replaced appointed U.S. military governors in 1952, and a constitution established that year have it a euphemistic status called "commonwealth" or "free associated state." Puerto Rico's commonwealth status was a dry run for the free trade practices of the past 15 years, where profit — and the potential for local investment — is extracted from a weaker
economy by rampaging multinational corporations.

Today, Puerto Rico is suffering from high unemployment rates,a fall-off in tourism due to the gas crisis, overdependence on government entitlements such as food stamps and a failing public education system.

Its governor,Anibal Acevedo Vila, has been indicted forcorruption by prosecutors from the U.S. Justice Department,something considered an intrusive act by many Puerto Ricans.

And the FBI, whose attempt to arrest independence leader Filiberto Ojeda Rios in his home in 2005 resulted in his death under questionable circumstances, continues to harass and indict independence movement members both on the island and in New York.

Puerto Rico has much to be proud of. It has produced many world-class entertainers, athletes, poets and thinkers. And the migration of many of its citizens to the United States has positively influenced the evolution of American culture.

But it's time for the question of self-determination to be settled once and for all on this paradisiacal island. After 110 years, the United States should live up to its stated ideals of freedom, democracy and self-determination.

WHEN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OPPOSES YOUR RIGHT TO BE FREE!!

Puerto Ricans, who desire to be free, must always know that the federal government, here in the States has no “subject matter jurisdiction” over the person, case or location and should be challenged to proof it.

You won’t be told this in court but: All jury members, judges, attorneys, and employees working in federal court, must reside in federal territory to legally be a federal juror or touch your case or they can be commercially sued, disbarred and financially ruined for violating your constitutional rights etc.

Your god given right to be free is not wanted by the USA, it will oppose your desire for independence and freedom.

The USA has been the biggest alien invaders the world has ever known. In order to win your freedom you must oppose them by knowing that their weakness lies in their violations to the Constitution and to the common law and common law remedies.

The Federal Government owns Puerto Rico, because it is a slave colony—whether you like the idea or not. But the Federal Government takes orders from those who own and run this Country, but are not of this country. The International Bankers, who really own the USA, will let PR be free, only if enough real men of Boricua blood wish to be free.

The answer to your freedom lies in your Constitutional rights --- To win --You must always reserve your constitutional, commercial rights and know what they are.

The majority of Americans have no idea that the USA has killed more Latinos, than Hitler Killed Jews, The USA has supported Traitors, Dictators, Gringitos, Butchers, Sociopaths, and Megalomaniacs who were supported and kept in power by these monsters, sucking up to the Anglo Alien Invaders.

Latin America has had enough of this form of genocide of Latinos. That includes other African, Asian etc. countries that lost millions of innocent people from USA aggression.

I want to vomit every time some ignorant fools says: “If you don’t like it here –go home”.

If the Alien Invaders would get out of each and every Latin Country and stop interfering in our affairs—it would make sense to say such a stupid thing. But unless the Snakes get out of Latin America-we have just as much right to be here!!! So, grin and put up with it—this was once our land.

A Puerto Rican without a desire for independence and/or freedom from alien control has no soul of a man.

The fact that the public does not know that we are NOT free, makes no difference, to the desire to be free. The PR that wants Statehood is a Gringito, who has no soul of a man left in his traitor's heart. Freedom is happening all over the world and yet we allow Gringitos to kill our right to be free.

A Gringito is a non-Anglo thing/person who internally is so inferior, that he desires to be what he can not be—thus Gringito means little gringo.

The Gringito is like an Uncle Tom to blacks or a collaborator and traitor to many others.

We allow the Alien Invaders to kill, harm, abuse, rape, and scam us and yet the Gringito wants to give our Country away.

This abuse must end. No man or woman is a real Man or real woman who is too scared to fight for their souls and be free. If you listen to the Gringito, you will lose your soul.

Thru out eternity Humanity owes its freedom from slavery, ONLY to brave souls who fought for your right to be free.

The fight will NOT succeed if you don't fight the Gringito enemy at home first. He is there next door and claims he is a real man and tries to give you many excuses of why PR can't be a free Country.

The fight for the independence of Puerto Rico is now non-violent and will be won in the hearts of real men around the World.

The Ronbothunter,

A proud freedom loving Puerto Rican.
