REFERENDUM WAS CONDUCTED

I don’t live in Puerto Rico anymore. I was born and raised there.

Politics is a national sport.

A referendum was held on June 11, 2017.

It was a ruse, a futile exercise and a total waste of money.

Get more information below and watch a short video which presents in almost a nutshell the reality of Puerto Rico, my country

Referendum on the political status of Puerto Rico held in Puerto Rico on June 11, 2017

The referendum had three options: becoming a state of the United States, independence/free association, or maintaining the current territorial status.

Those who voted overwhelmingly chose statehood by 97%; turnout, however, was 23%, a historically low figure.

(recalculating and using additional numbers, that number decreased to 18% turnout)

This figure is attributed to a boycott led by the pro-status quo PPD party.

Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Roselló, pushed ahead with his top campaign promise of trying to convert the US territory into a state, holding a Sunday referendum to let voters send a message to Congress.

His party has launched an aggressive ad campaign urging people to “demand respect” with their vote – to choose statehood so the island can obtain equal treatment from the federal government that some say would ease a 10-year economic recession that has spurred nearly half a million Puerto Ricans to flee to the U.S. mainland.

AMID ECONOMIC CRISIS, PUERTO RICO PREPARES TO VOTE ON STATEHOOD

Amid economic crisis, Puerto Rico prepares to vote on statehood

~Miami Herald~

“Sunday’s referendum is not binding.

It was more an exercise of electoral temperature-taking than a mandate to convert the island into an American state.”

Statehood should not be the equivalent of throwing a drowning swimmer a lifesaver.

Puerto Rico must ably address its economic distress and pursue statehood by assuring Congress and the rest of United States that it would be a strong and capable addition, not a chronically needy one.”

~~Should Puerto Rico Become The 51st State?~~

~~Published on Jun 4, 2017~~

There are 3.5 million US citizens currently facing one of the worst financial crises in this country – and they’re all in Puerto Rico.

The US government has an almost 120-year-long relationship with Puerto Rico – which is a territory, not the 51st state. But what has that relationship looked like? Why is Puerto Rico still a territory, and what do Puerto Ricans, themselves, want for their future? Explore these questions – and some others – with Sana Saeed, who starts the story at the very beginning: May 12, 1898.

PORTRAIT OF CHAOS

Time’s new cover is going to royally piss off Drumpf

When Drumpf was named Time Magazine’s ‘person of the year’, he used it as an opportunity to gloat.

The irony, of course, was that being ‘person of the year’ is not necessarily a compliment, and upon further inspection, even the cover photo held clues that Drumpf’s impending presidency was doomed.

Well, there’s no way Drumpf can spin Time’s latest cover as anything except what it is:

a mirror held up to his disastrous first month as leader of the country.

This is what will hit news stands on Feb. 27.

BOYCOTT INAUGURATION 

You cannot be at home with something that you feel is wrong!

Rep. John Lewis

I’m breaking my silence tonight because this new installment of The Resistance just came out.

It’s related to tomorrow’s inauguration.

I would like to share it before the event.

Keith’s video is totally self-explanatory.

Thoughts for today, #452 …. “Seditious Conspiracy: Oscar López Rivera …. not more than 20 years …. “!!

OSCAR LOPEZ RIVERA

Seditious Conspiracy

In other words, trying to harm the United States, right?

Conspire to overthrow, contrary to the authority …

The more I read this, the more familiar it sounds to me.

I think this is happening during our current times!

You know what I’m saying … by covert means.

Oscar López Rivera is an Independentista, a Puerto Rican Nationalist and member of FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation), an organization whose members declared themselves combatants against the US colonization of Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico was invaded and subsequently seized by the US in 1898, and has since been denied the right to self-govern. While Puerto Ricans vote in the primary, serve in the US armed forces, are required to register for selective service and can be drafted to fight in US wars, Puerto Ricans living on the island are not allowed to vote in presidential elections and have no voting representatives in the US Senate or Congress.

FALN claimed responsibility for more than 120 bomb attacks on banks, military sites and government facilities across the US between 1974 and 1980, which led to the 1980 arrest of 11 men and women for seditious conspiracy.

Although he was named a co-defendant in the case, Oscar López Rivera was not arrested until a year later, when he was picked up during a traffic stop, and also charged with seditious conspiracy, weapons possession and transporting stolen vehicles across state lines.

No evidence was ever found tying López Rivera to any of the bombings, and although he was not convicted of any violent crimes, he was sentenced to 55 years in federal prison. Later, an additional 15 years were added to his sentence for an alleged escape attempt.

He is now the longest-incarcerated Puerto Rican political prisoner, currently serving 70 years, including 12 in solitary confinement, even though the UN has condemned solitary confinement in excess of 15 days as a violation of human rights.

However, although there’s a growing movement calling for López Rivera’s release, the US government has classified him as a terrorist.

Puerto Ricans Push Obama to Free Oscar Lopez Rivera, Independence Activist Jailed for 35 Years

~~Published on Dec 23, 2016~~

Over 100,000 people have signed a petition urging President Obama to grant clemency to Puerto Rican independence activist Oscar López Rivera, who has been imprisoned for about 35 years, much of the time in solitary confinement.

In 1981, López Rivera was convicted on federal charges, including seditious conspiracy – conspiring to oppose U.S. authority over Puerto Rico by force. In 1999, President Bill Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, but López Rivera refused to accept the deal because it did not include two fellow activists, who have since been released.

We speak to Oscar’s brother José López Rivera and Melissa Mark-Viverito, speaker of the New York City Council.

“JUST LIKE FIRE”

From the Original Motion Picture “Alice Through The Looking Glass”

I went to the movies last Friday with Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter.

She wanted to see “Alice” and so did I.

It was a great movie, very well done and perfect for Angelika.

I guess I had forgotten that Ellen DeGeneres had P!NK on her show and mentioned that she had worked on the theme for this movie.

I’m so behind sometimes … and it’s Angelika who brings me up to date.

Enjoy PINK’s video.
