What is Promesa but an eviction notice from Wall Street (WS) to the Puerto Ricans?
The WS sharks own us and our island. Period.
As such, our politicians and governor must obey WS/Promesa orders. Who do you think cut Roselló’s head? Why do you think he was left hanging to dry like a wet dirty rag?
In the answer to those two questions is the key to the future of Puerto Rico, at least as I see it, of course. I discuss this below.
ROSELLÓ: THE MIRROR IN WHICH FUTURE GOVERNORS OF THE ISLAND MUST LOOK AT THEMSELVES
As I said on my previous post, Roselló was been chased by both the WS mafia and the furious people of Puerto Rico. I gave as evidence that WS had judged him and found him guilty of insubordination the article at the Wall Street Journal, the official voice of WS’s CEOs, written by the WSJ editor board, June 25. The subtitle of the article headline says it all:
Puerto Rico’s political melt down: The island needs leaders who will work with the federal control board
For those of you who enjoy deconstructing written material, I propose that the phrase ” who will work” implies that Roselló was not working with the board, and that’s the reason that the island is in a political melt down, because WS/Promesa can’t find a ‘leader’ willing to obey their orders to the t. That is in the article.
Accepting the reality that Roselló was kicked out by the combined action of WS and the furious people may be of help to the boricuas to get ready to the next phase of this struggle: defining the political status of the island. This phase will be accelerated by WS/Promesa as a consequence of the impossible position in which they had put themselves and the people of Puerto Rico.
WS/PROMESA: THE DOOR TO BE FORCED TO SOLVE THE STATUS
In so many years the Americans in Puerto Rico, only on two or three occasions were they near to lose the island to the independentistas. The last time was in the late 60s when the pro-independence party, el PIP, almost win the elections. To prevent this ‘almost’ from happening again, the US sent the food stamps to the island, and that took care of it. And yet, the US could hide the colonial status of the island to the world by simply claiming that the problems in the island were caused by a handful of communists.
But today’s political melt down in the island can’t be blamed on the communists: the colony is almost naked with Promesa.
The economic and political conditions imposed by WS on the island can be tolerated by NO NATION or people. But WS’ sharks disagree with me. They say that the people must follow their conditions as dictated by them in Promesa. Their capitalist arrogance will lead them to their own crossing of the Rubricon in Puerto Rico.
Any governor of the island, elected or not (from either of the two main parties) must obey WS/Promesa or have his/her chopped off, like Roselló. Even if the candidate has good moral intentions to protect the people, it can only be done by disobeying cut-throat Promesa’s rules. If the future governor obeys WS, the people will mince him or her; if obeys the people, WS will be doing the mincing.
There’s no exit: calle sin salida.
The US and WS can’t be putting and removing governors in the island as it pleases them; it’s bad optic. The only way of doing it is by manipulating public opinion using the newspapers, TV, Youtube, social media…just as they did with Roselló.
So you can expect a public war against the women in the island, for they are truly at the head of the movement. They should be ready to engage, for the war is for sure. And don’t expect a peaceful treatment by the police. I expect blood in the streets of San Juan. WS controlled the cops in the island during the marches to let the people do their part. But don’t expect that to happen again.
Another unforeseen problem for WS: the people of Puerto Rico have become heroes worldwide. Manipulating the people’s emotion with the intention of making sure Roselló would not be reelected had the surprise consequence of the people saying NOW, not later to kicking him. Now it will be more difficult for WS media to denigrate the people of Puerto Rico, not impossible, but not as easy as it has been up to now.
When Promesa shows its teeth, the world will understand that the problem here is the colonial status of the island. That debt can’t be paid; the colony can’t be repaired; it’s not the ‘communists’. It’s the colony, stupid.
The people will find themselves in a dead end street. They will be forced to make a decision about the status. Only and independentista in the government can force the status issue because independentistas are not looking to patch the colony nor will allow WS/Promesa to take our nation.
There’s no other choice for us.
