“Puerto Rico is now a colony!” … Part 3! Did we ever doubt it!!! SMH …. shameful USA!!
The Governor of Puerto Rico continues to cry. He has just discovered that Puerto Rico is a colony…the personal property of the United States.
Gov. Garcia Padilla calls this a “shift” in US foreign policy: that until last week, Puerto Rico was an autonomous nation with its own independent government. With all due respect, the governor is either a moron or a liar.
In addition to the Territorial Clause and the Supremacy Clause of the US constitution, and in addition to the insular cases (Balzac v. Porto Rico; De Lima v. Bidwell; Goetze v. US; Dooley v. US; Armstrong v. US; Downes v. Bidwell; Huus v. New York and Porto Rico Steamship Co.) a succession of US Presidents, including Barack Obama, have issued executive orders explicitly stating the US position: that Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the US.
