UNDER PRESSURE FROM WASHINGTON, DC

PUERTO RICO HAS STARTED A PRIVATIZATION PROCESS

Privatization and austerity are hitting a country rooted in systemic inequality

SHOCK DOCTRINE

This process was applied to Puerto Rico, my country, a long time ago.

It was progressing at a mostly unnoticed pace by those Puerto Ricans who weren’t ‘woke’ yet. There was a ‘hint’ of this process when the PROMESA Bill was signed into law.

The Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA) is a US federal law that established an oversight board, a process for restructuring debt, and expedited procedures for approving critical infrastructure projects in order to combat the Puerto Rican government-debt crisis.

Hurricane María accelerated the process.

How to stop it?

I don’t know. I don’t think anyone knows!

~The Shock Doctrine~
The strategy by the world’s economic elites of imposing an extremely neoliberal economic regime on communities they control, using some form of shock: a natural disaster, a coup d’etat, a war, a financial crisis, etc.

Once the community has been crippled by this first shock, the economic “reforms” are imposed suddenly, creating a secondary blow.

Then, as the community begins to recover and fight back, the authorities use torture and police brutality to literally shock the community a third time.

In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades.

The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world – through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries.

(Very interesting and gripping book. I highly recommend it.)

DISGRACED IN ALABAMA

Roy Moore Suspended From Alabama Supreme Court For Anti-Gay Marriage Order

~KARMA~

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore suspended over same-sex marriage order
By Ray Sanchez, CNN

(September 30, 2016)

Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay Friday, September 30,  for the rest of his term for directing probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

The state Court of the Judiciary, in a 50-page decision, cited Moore’s “disregard for binding federal law” as a reason for the suspension.
Moore’s administrative order to probate judges was issued in January – seven months after a landmark Supreme Court ruling legalized gay and lesbian nuptials nationwide.
Moore’s term runs through January 2019.

He is 69 and will be ineligible to run for re-election because of his age.

Friday’s ruling also cited Moore’s “history with this court,” saying it was the second time he had been brought before the judiciary court for “actions grossly inconsistent with his duties as Chief Justice.”
