Moncho Reyes…the Stupidest Governor in Puerto Rican History

Emmet Montgomery Reily —- “Moncho Reyes”! Pres. Warren Harding to appoint him as Governor of Puerto Rico. Bad idea ….. the laughing stock!!


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

Emmet Montgomery Reily did not have much of a resume. He had been assistant postmaster of Kansas City, Missouri. But this was enough for Pres. Warren Harding to appoint him as Governor of Puerto Rico.

The trouble started almost immediately. Before he was even sworn in, Reily had already informed the insular press that:

  1. He was the boss now 
  2. Puerto Rico must become a state  
  3. Any Puerto Rican who opposed statehood was a professional agitator 
  4. Thousands of Puerto Rican children were abandoned and roaming the streets  

His inauguration speech went even further, with Reily proclaiming that:

  1. Puerto Rican flags were no longer permitted in Puerto Rico 
  2. Any public employee who lacked “Americanism” would be fired 
  3. Spanish would no longer be tolerated in the schools   

In lengthy letters to Pres. Harding, Reily wrote: “Every Porto Rican politician carries a pistol,” and “Porto Ricans are children,” and “they cannot be trusted.”

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
