Sonia Sotomayor…either an idiot or a genius

I sure hope that Nelson A. Denis is correct about this …. Hope Sonia is s genius …. Hope all these potential laws would be written … and Puerto Rico could make these laws on their own w/o US Congress intervention. Otherwise, Puerto Rico is indeed a COLONY! All my fingers are crossed!!


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

On January 13, during the oral arguments in Puerto Rico v. Sánchez Valle, Sonia Sotomayor made some astounding declarations.

As reported in USA Today, she emphasized that Puerto Rico is not a colony, but “a free associated state…literally.”

In the hearing transcript itself, on page 47, she declared that “before 1952, Congress could veto Puerto Rico’s laws. It has relinquished that right.”

To many people (including this writer) Puerto Rico is still a colony, and the U.S. Congress has continuing jurisdiction over the island’s legislature through Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution, also known as the “Territorial Clause.” 

The Territorial Clause states that “Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States.” 

Buy maybe Sonia is right.

Maybe we should all put a finger to…

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!!!
