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.)

TRIP BENEATH CONTEMPT

At a time when all efforts are focused on rescue, this visit was a total distraction. It was also an opportunistic event to turn this visit into a campaign rally and a self-serving activity.

After mindless tweets, the transgender ban and the Arpaio pardon, Drumpf decides it’s time to visit the disaster area … but not too close.

Never a tweet about the human suffering, loss or destruction.

“What a crowd! What a turnout!”

‘So-Called President’ Drumf Touches Down in Texas
Drumpf and Melania Drumpf arrived in Texas Tuesday afternoon, August 29,  to survey the disaster in Harvey’s wake. They avoided the Houston metropolitan area, which remains an active emergency zone and continues to be inundated by rain, rising floodwaters, and overflowing rivers and reservoirs.

Instead, he visited Corpus Christi, which is about 30 miles from the hard-hit Rockport, Texas, where the Category 4 hurricane touched down Friday, August 25.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.
Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.
He has posted installment #113.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.
Thank you!

EARTH SHAKES IN ITALY

Amatrice, Italy

There are no words.

A strong earthquake struck a mountainous stretch of central Italy early Wednesday, August 24, killing at least 241 people, trapping scores under debris and setting off tremors that awakened residents in Rome, nearly 100 miles to the southwest.

The earthquake, which had a preliminary magnitude of 6.2, struck at 3:36 a.m., about 6.5 miles southeast of the town of Norcia in the Umbria region, followed by about 200 aftershocks over the next several hours, including a5.5-magnitude tremor at 4:33 a.m.

The authorities said the quake was comparable in intensity to one in 2009 in the Abruzzo region of central Italy that killed more than 300 people.

“America” …. why do they come??


 

N1

~~August 2, 2014~~

I walked into my family room, the TV was on. A movie was playing: “The Jazz Singer” with Neil Diamond.

This brought back so many memories. This movie was one of my favorite ones. I remember playing the LP version of the soundtrack over and over and over again. This movie fascinated me because of the theme and the music.

Interesting to note that when I caught what was left of it, the last song brought to mind the current crisis with illegal immigration.

I don’t pretend to be an expert on this issue. However, I see and read about what is going on. This country was founded through immigration of many people from many countries.

Why do they come here? Catch the lyrics to “America”.

“America”

Far,
We’ve been traveling far
Without a home
But not without a star

Free,
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They’re coming to America
Never looking back again,
They’re coming to America

Home
Don’t it seem so far away
Oh, we’re traveling light today
In the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm

Home
To a new and a shiny place
Make our bed and we’ll say our grace
Freedom’s light burning warm
Freedom’s light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They’re coming to America
Ev’ry time that flag’s unfurled
They’re coming to America

Got a dream to take them there
They’re coming to America
Got a dream they’ve come to share
They’re coming to America

They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America
Today, Today,
Today, Today, Today

My country ’tis of thee (today)
Sweet land of liberty (today)
Of thee I sing (today)
Of thee I sing
Today, Today, Today
Today, today, today……

What else could be written to express the reasons and the feelings of those coming to America?

We’ve been traveling far, Only want to be free, Hang on to a dream, Freedom’s light burning warm, They’re coming to America ….

Map

Immigration is the movement of people into another country or region to which they are not native in order to settle there, especially as permanent residents or future citizens. Immigrants are motivated to leave their countries for a variety of reasons, including a desire for economic prosperity, political issues, family re-unification, escaping conflict or natural disaster, or simply the wish to change one’s surroundings.

Immigration to the United States is a complex demographic phenomenon that has been a major source of population growth and cultural change throughout much of the history of the United States. The economic, social, and political aspects of immigration have caused controversy regarding ethnicity, economic benefits, jobs for non-immigrants, settlement patterns, impact on upward social mobility, crime, and voting behavior.

This didn’t start now. It’s been the reality for many, many years.

~~Neil Diamond’s America~~

~~Uploaded on Jul 4, 2011~~

The song’s theme is a positive interpretation of the history of immigration to the United States, both during the early 1900s and today. Combining Diamond’s typically powerful melody, dynamic arrangement, and bombastic vocal, it ends with an interpolation of the traditional patriotic song “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee”.

In Diamond’s concerts, the song is a very popular number both home and abroad, with a large United States flag often displayed from the rafters on cue to the lyric, “Every time that flag’s unfurled/They’re coming to America.”
