Federal Judge Juan R. Torruella calls for a complete boycott of U.S. chain stores in Puerto Rico

“Puerto Ricans need to march. Consumers need to boycott US chain stores, and support the small business people of Puerto Rico.” …. will it ever happen??


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

Judge Juan R. Torruella, a Puerto Rican, is the longest-standing federal judge in Puerto Rican history.

He served on the federal bench for 41 years, since 1974.

For 31 years, since 1984, he has served on the First Circuit Court of Appeals. From 1994 through 2001, he was the Chief Justice of the First Circuit.

Judge Torruella is also a leading interpreter of what is known as “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.) and he wrote what many people consider as the definitive analysis of those cases:


Torruella is not a “radical” judge. He is not even a leftist…in fact, quite the opposite: he was first appointed to the federal bench by Pres. Gerald Ford…

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. 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!!!

    • JoAnn …. I really wish it would happen. That would send such a message … however, I don’t see it happening! 😦
      The mom & pops stores have all gone but out of business. The big American corporations have taken over. I don’t think that Puerto Ricans are even aware that they take such an action or even want to …. PR is a mini USA. Options for buying anything but American are very few. From buying all kids of products, entertainment and fast food chains.
      There are still Puerto Rican business but in the minority.
      All good have to come from the US ….. by law. Google “the Jones Act” … and you will see why.
      I do hope though …. that the last thing you lose: hope. Maybe the current dire conditions could be a motivator. Fingers crossed here!! 😦
