Plena Puertorriqueña

~MANOLO AND OLGA~

It’s December 1.

The holiday season has already started.

It will be a bittersweet celebration in Puerto Rico. Yet, the Boricua spirit will never be vanquished.

This is a new song, dropping at the perfect time, with the perfect message. The Puerto Rican people shows their strength and resilience during difficult times.

“Que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, enamorao de mi tierra de mi cultura y mi pueblo … 

Sube esa bandera al son de una rica plena … “

#YoNoMeQuito

The plena originated in Ponce, Puerto Rico around 1900

It was first heard in the neighborhood Barriada de la Torre, whose population consisted mostly of immigrants from St. Kitts, Tortola and St. Thomas, who had settled on the island since the late 1800’s. Originally, sung texts were not associated with the plena, which was rendered by guitar, accordion and pandero, but eventually, in 1907, singing was added.

Plena was often called the periodico cantado or “sung newspaper” for the lower classes because it spread messages among people, similar to the corridos in Mexico. The traditional center of plena was probably San Antón, a barrio of Ponce, although the black neighborhood of Loíza is also mentioned as the heartland for the genre. Its popularity peaked in the 1920’s.

Cuando me preguntan que donde fue que nací, se me hace un nudo en la garganta y les digo así, nací donde el cielo mostró su primera estrella fue jugo de tamarindo mezclao con parcha, china y quenepa …

De Puerto Rico, Lelolelolelola, Borinqueeeen!

Que rico es poder decir que yo soy puertorriqueño, que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, enamorao de mi tierra de mi cultura y mi pueblo.

Post-storm Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 Still in Emergency/Survival Mode ….. 48 Days In 🇵🇷 …. “!!

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

CBS 60 MINUTES OVERTIME

This past Sunday, November 5, CBS Television had a special segment detailing information about many Puerto Ricans, American citizens, having endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane María. I’ve been looking for this special on YouTube to share it with you.

The situation in Puerto Rico is still dire. 

It seems that the segment presented in the regular show isn’t available yet. I will keep looking and share it when I find it.

During my search, I found this 60 Minutes Overtime presented on November 5 by Brit McCandless Farmer.

Take a look, please!

Forty-eight days today, after Hurricane María hit the island, ‘60 Minutes‘ found its citizens trying to make do without water or power – and frequently losing hope

Every day and night in San Juan, there are blackouts. But having electricity at all is a privilege, since most of the island is still without power.

“At night, it really quiets down because it’s dark,” says 60 Minutes associate producer Jack Weingart.

“The street lights are out, and most homes and businesses are also dark. So at night, you just hear this constant humming of the generators.”

Weingart, along with producers Graham Messick and Michael Karzis and associate producer Vanessa Fica, recently traveled to Puerto Rico with correspondent Steve Kroft to report this week for 60 Minutes.

As they traveled throughout the island, the dire status on the ground surprised them most.

“It’s really still in an emergency mode,” Karzis says.

“They haven’t graduated into a relief mode or recovery.”

But what does this exodus mean to an already crippled island?  

“It means a territory, which is already fiscally circling the drain, having the tax base erode even further,” Karzis says.

“It does not help that you’re losing otherwise qualified professionals or a labor force that is dwindling. And what you’re left with are folks that are older, and are collecting pensions at this point or young kids.”

Almost seven weeks after the storm, producer Graham Messick says, it feels like some Puerto Ricans have given up.

“They’d lost hope,” he says. “And it’s like a state of suspended animation. People were just waiting for the power to come on. There’s just nothing to do. It’s boring. It’s hot. It’s uncomfortable.”

“And there are no answers. “

The video was produced by Will Croxton. It was edited by Will Croxton and Sarah Shafer Prediger.

Hello!

My name is Heather Rooney.

I am an illustrator specializing in photo-realistic colored pencil and graphite drawings. Since finding my passion for portrait and figure drawing in high school, I have developed a technique focusing on high attention to detail.

I draw my inspiration from a broad range of cultural figures, such as sport athletes, media personalities, and entertainment professionals.

With each illustration requiring many hours of work, ranging from 30 hours to 100+ hours, I share my process through time-lapse videos on my YouTube channel, which has generated over 60 million views from a global audience.

Jeez, let it be!

It’s you who keeps bringing the topic up.

Could there really be kompromat in the Steele Dossier?

I’m really curious!

“Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?”

~Drumpf~

BLineKomBLine

In Russian politics, Kompromat, literally “compromising material”, is damaging information about a politician or other public figure used to create negative publicity, for blackmail, or for ensuring loyalty.

Kompromat may be acquired from various security services, or outrightly forged, and then publicized by use of a public relations official.

Widespread use of kompromat has been one of the characteristic features of the politics of Russia, and other post-Soviet states.

MY HERITAGE

WHERE I COME FROM

Hola, My name is Horty Rexach and just so you know, I was born and raised in Puerto Rico.

My parents met and married in New York City in the 1930’s.

They were from a Beautiful Island of Beautiful People in the middle of the ocean. surrounded by water.

Oh! … and we are Americans!!

Yes, American Citizens!
We speak Spanish and English as well as Spanglish!

Our little island, surrounded by big water, contributes more service members per capita than any other state in the union. We have astronauts, scientists, a Supreme Court Justice, Medal of Honor recipients, legendary sports figures, scholars, Oscar winners actors and actresses, internationally known musicians, and many, many more distinguished citizens who call our little beautiful island their Mother and Father Land.

We are a GORGEOUS and an interesting mix of Native Taíno Indians, Spaniards, African and other European blood that gives us our incredible drive to survive. 

I’m Puerto Rican and I’m damn proud of it!!!

Samantha Bee …. “🇺🇸 America’s 100-Year-History Of Screwing Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. Nothing New …. “!!

~~October 7, 2017~~ 

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SCREWING PUERTO RICO

NOTHING NEW

I must confess that I didn’t really know the complex history that exists between Puerto Rico, my country, and the mighty imperialistic U.S. of A.

I’m truly ashamed to say that I didn’t find out about this history until 2015 when I found out about and read the book written by Nelson A. Denis “War Against All Puerto Ricans‘.

I need to say that I grew up under the shadow of the ‘greatest country in the world’ and believed every word I was programmed with. The information provided in the book, very well written, researched and totally documented, wasn’t taught in the private school that I went to.

I went to a Catholic school in Río Piedras, somewhat a suburb of San Juan, ran by American nuns and priests.

Samantha Bee takes a humorous look at a synopsis of this history in light of the humanitarian disaster caused by Hurricane María and the response by the American government lead by the “Moron-in-Chief“, Drumpf.

Take a look!

HortyRex©

BLineSB2BLine

The American government’s slow response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria is actually nothing new.
On Wednesday’s “Full Frontal,”, October 4, Samantha Bee explained that the way Drumpf “helped” storm-ravaged Puerto Ricans followed a 100-year-old pattern.

“If you’re shocked by this, then you are not Puerto Rican,” said Bee.

“Truth is, we’ve been treating them like the unwelcome nephew under America’s stairs for more than a century.”

Aided by “Hamilton” star Javier Muñoz, who has family on the island, Bee then dissected the island’s history of “getting screwed with their pantalones on by the United States.”
