La administración del gobernador Ricardo Rosselló anunció recientemente su intención de privatizar la Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica. Concurro con el gobernador en que ha llegado la hora de tomar medidas drásticas en el caso de la AEE, pues ésta ha demostrado ser incapaz de reformarse ella misma y ha sido inmune a los esfuerzos de diversas administraciones para modernizar y reestructurar sus operaciones.

Esta falla se debe, en gran medida, a que la política partidista se ha imbricado en la cultura administrativa y gerencial de la AEE; de la misma forma que un virus maligno invade una célula y captura sus mecanismos de control para reproducirse hasta que la célula infectada explota. En el caso de la AEE podemos estipular que ese momento llegó con la petición para el ajuste de sus deudas bajo el Titulo III de PROMESA.

Habiendo dicho eso, sin embargo, hace falta obtener más información sobre el proceso de privatización propuesto antes de endosarlo o rechazarlo.

Primero, existen varias modalidades de privatización. El gobernador anunció un proceso mediante el cual se venderán los activos de generación de la AEE y el gobierno mantendría la titularidad del sistema de transmisión y distribución, pero la operación del mismo se cedería a un concesionario por un periodo de tiempo fijopor lo menos 25 años. No se nos ha explicado porqué escogieron este modelo y qué ventajas tiene sobre las otras modalidades.

Segundo, la experiencia internacional nos indica que la transparencia y la apertura son importantes para que un proceso de privatización logre sus objetivos. Si el proceso consiste en transferir una compañía corrupta del sector público a una caterva de corruptos del sector privado no hemos logrado nada. Por eso me preocupa que el proceso anunciado aparentemente será dirigido desde cuartos oscuros en La Fortaleza. Esto se presta para favorecer indebidamente a los sospechosos usuales, a los amigos de la casa, lo que sería un defecto fatal, ya que ese proceso no producirá los resultados deseados.

Tercero, ¿qué cualificaciones se les exigirán a las compañías que deseen participar del proceso? Aquí es importante prestar atención a: la reputación corporativa del licitador, su situación financiera, el desempeño que ha tenido en otras jurisdicciones, y sí ha tenido problemas legales por incumplimiento de contrato o corrupción, entre otros factores. En la lista de compañías cualificadas no deberíamos ver firmas fly by night incorporadas a último minuto para participar en la licitación.

Cuarto, ¿qué criterios se utilizarán para otorgar los contratos? Entre otros, es importante prestarle atención a la capacidad tecnológica de la firma, la experiencia del equipo gerencial, los costos estimados de producción y la solidez financiera para hacer las inversiones de capital requeridas. Sí los contratos de generación o la concesión para operar el sistema de transmisión y distribución son otorgados a compañías sin la experiencia y los recursos adecuados, por ejemplo, a los Mario & Luigis Power Company de esta vida, el resultado será el fracaso del proceso de privatización.

Quinto, la reglamentación del mercado es esencial para obtener los resultados deseados en términos de modernizar nuestro sistema eléctrico, incorporar la generación con fuentes renovables y reducir el costo por kilovatio-hora. El gobernador y su equipo de asesores parecen partir de la premisa que la mano invisible del mercado se encargará por sí sola de reducir la factura mensual. Nada más lejos de la realidad, no estamos en el mundo de la competencia perfecta de microeconomía 101.

La estructura de mercado que ha propuesto el gobernador es compleja: de un lado tendremos tres o cuatro productores de electricidad, lo que los economistas llaman un oligopolio; y del otro tendremos un solo comprador, la compañía que administre el sistema de transmisión y distribución, un monopsonio en la jerga de la microeconomía.

En la ausencia de reglamentación efectiva, esta situación se presta para interacciones estratégicas, legales e ilegales, entre los participantes del mercado. Los generadores, por ejemplo, podrían: enviar señales de precios a los otros productores para limitar la competencia; sobornar al operador de la red para que le otorgue preferencia a una compañía sobre otra, aun cuando ésta no sea el productor de más bajo costo; o pagarle al concesionario para que les haga la vida imposible a sus competidores. Por otro lado, el operador de la red podría extorsionar a los generadores para darle preferencia en la conexión al sistema.

Para evitar que los participantes en el mercado ejerzan poder indebido sobre los precios, es necesario que la agencia reglamentadora sea independiente y cuente con los recursos y el peritaje necesario para diseñar e implementar los incentivos correctos para asegurar que los precios que pague el consumidor sean los más bajos posibles. Puerto Rico ya cuenta con una Comisión Reglamentadora desde el 2014 y la diatriba en contra de ésta en la página 36 del nuevo Plan Fiscal de la AEE me hace pensar que la Comisión ha cumplido con su misión.

Las alegadas deficiencias que le impiden a la Comisión reglamentar un mercado de competencia parcial son fácilmente subsanables mediante enmiendas a la ley que creó la misma. La insistencia de la administración en eliminarla y fusionarla en un ente nuevo se debe, en parte, a que la Comisión fue creada por legislación del otro partido, lo que usualmente es un defecto fatal para una agencia del gobierno, aunque esté funcionando bien. Es hora de terminar con esta práctica dañina y contraproducente.

Además, parece que la intención es diluir los poderes de la Comisión y crear un reglamentador dócil, con pocas o ningunas garras, para que los participantes del mercado hagan y deshagan a gusto y gana. La administración no parece entender que la implicación de esto es que los participantes en el mercado manipularán las reglas para maximizar el precio al que venden y los consumidores no verán reducción alguna en su factura.

Y es que el little dirty secret de muchos empresarios es que éstos favorecen la competencia de la boca para afuera, pero no cuando les toca competir a ellos. Dicho de otra manera, favorecen la libre empresa, pero no la libre competencia. Por ejemplo, el Plan Fiscal de la AEE estipula que solamente se permitirán nuevos generadores si obtienen un certificado de necesidad y conveniencia, una manera clásica de limitar la competencia. Pero, este requisito es inconsistente con la política pública esbozada en el Plan Fiscal para Puerto Rico, el cual propone la eliminación reglamentos, certificados, permisos y licencias como una de las reformas estructurales que fomentarán el crecimiento futuro de nuestra economía.

Finalmente, quedan muchas otras interrogantes sin contestar. Por ejemplo, ¿cómo se va a reestructurar la deuda existente de la AEE?; ¿qué va a pasar con los subsidios a hoteles y compañías manufactureras? (no se necesitan subsidios sí el costo baja); ¿se les cobrará a los municipios por la electricidad que consuman?; y ¿el concesionario y los generadores pagarán contribuciones sobre ingresos?

En estos momentos no tenemos información suficiente para determinar de una manera racional si este proceso de privatización en específico es bueno o malo para Puerto Rico. Le recomiendo a los lectores que hagan su propia investigación y análisis, que se eduquen sobre este proceso, que busquen en la internet información sobre las compañías que desean licitar, que no les hagan caso a los relacionistas públicos del gobierno, ni a sus propagandistas en los programas de análisis y noticias, y sobre todo no crean nada, absolutamente nada, que diga la gerencia de la AEE.

Inconvenient Questions

The administration of Governor Ricardo Rosselló recently announced its intention to privatize the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority. I agree with the governor that the time has come to take drastic measures with respect to PREPA, as it has proved incapable of reforming itself and has been immune to several administrations efforts to modernize and restructure its operations.

That failure is due, in large part, to the fact that party politics have become embedded in PREPAs administrative and managerial culture, just as a harmful virus invades a cell and takes over its control mechanisms to reproduce itself until the infected cell explodes. In the case of PREPA, we can stipulate that that moment came with the request to restructure its debts under Title III of PROMESA.

Having said that, however, we need more information on the proposed privatization process before endorsing or rejecting it.

First, there are several modalities of privatization. The governor announced a process by which PREPAs generation assets would be sold off while the government would retain ownership of the transmission and distribution system, though the operation of that system will be ceded to a concessionaire for a fixed period of timeat least 25 years. We have been offered no explanation why that model was chosen and what advantages it has over other modalities.

Second, international experience indicates that transparency and openness are important if a privatization process is to achieve its objectives. If the process consists of transferring a corrupt public-sector company to a pack of corrupt private-sector licensees, well have achieved nothing. Thats why Im worried that the process announced by the governor will apparently be directed from what were once called smoke-filled rooms in La Fortalezathat is, behind closed doors. That situation lends itself to unduly favoring the usual suspects, friends of the family, so to speak, which would be a fatal flaw, since that process could not possibly achieve the desired results.

Third, what qualifications will be required of the companies that choose to take part in the process? Here its important to pay attention to the bidders corporate reputation, its financial situation, its performance in other jurisdictions, whether it has had legal problems due to breach of contract or corruption, and other similar issues. We should not see fly-by-night companies, incorporated at the last minute to participate in the bidding process, in the list of qualified companies.

Fourth, what criteria will be used in awarding the contracts? Among others, it is important to pay attention to the firms technological capacity, the experience of its managerial team, the estimated costs of production, and the financial strength to make the necessary capital investments. If the generation contracts or the concession to operate the transmission and distribution system are awarded to companies without adequate experience and resourcesto, for example, Mario and Luigis Power Companythe result will be the failure of the privatization process.

Fifth, market regulation is essential for obtaining the desired results in terms of modernizing our electrical system, incorporating renewable energy sources for the generation of electricity, and reducing the cost per kilowatt-hour. The governor and his team of advisors seem to assume that the invisible hand of the market will, in and of itself, ensure a reduction in our monthly electric bills. Nothing could be further from the truthwe are not in Microeconomics 101s world of perfect competition.

The market structure the governor has proposed is complex: on the one hand we will have three or four producers of electricity, which economists call an oligopoly; and on the other, we will have a single buyer, the company that administers the transmission and distribution system, a monopsony in the jargon of microeconomics.

In the absence of effective regulation, this situation lends itself to strategic interactions, legal and illegal, among and between the participants in the market. The generators, for example, might price signals to other producers in order to limit competition; bribe the network operator to obtain preference for one company over another, even when that company is not the least-cost producer, or pay the concessionaire to make its competitors life impossible. On the other hand, the network operator could extort the generators to give one of them preference over the others in connecting to the system.

To prevent market participants from exercising undue power over prices, the regulatory agency must be independent and have the resources and expertise necessary to design and implement the correct incentives to ensure consumers pay the lowest possible prices. Since 2014, Puerto Rico has had a Regulatory Commission, and the diatribe against it on page 36 of PREPAs new financial plan makes me think that the Commission is fulfilling its mission.

The alleged drawbacks that keep the Commission from regulating a partially competitive market are easily fixable by amending the law that created it. The administrations insistence on eliminating the Commission and merging it into a new agency is due, in part, to the fact that the Commission was created by legislation enacted by the other party, which is usually a fatal defect for a government agency, even when it is working well. Its time to end this harmful and counterproductive practice.

In addition, it appears that the intention is to dilute the Commissions powers and create a docile regulator with little or no real ability to enforce its rulings, so that the participants in the market can do pretty much as they please. The administration doesnt seem to understand that the implication of this is that the market participants will manipulate the rules to maximize the price they sell at, and consumers will see no reduction whatsoever in their bills.

The dirty little secret of many businesspeople that they only pay lip-service to the notion of competition, and never when it affects their own business. To put it another way, theyre in favor of free enterprise, but not free competition. For example, PREPAs financial plan states that new generators will only be permitted if they obtain a certificate of public convenience and necessity, a classic way to limit competition. But this requirement is inconsistent with the public policy outlined in the New Fiscal Plan for Puerto Rico, which proposes the elimination of regulations, certifications, permits, and licenses as one of the structural reforms that will spur the growth of our economy.

In addition, there remain many other unanswered questions. For example, how is PREPAs existing debt going to be restructured? what is going to happen to the subsidies to hotels and manufacturing companies? (subsidies will not be needed if electricity prices decrease as promised); will municipalities be charged for the electricity they use?; and will the concessionaire and the generator pay income taxes?

At this time, we do not have enough information to determine in a rational manner whether this specific privatization process is good or bad for Puerto Rico. I recommend readers do their own research and analysis, that they educate themselves about this process, look for information on the internet about the companies that enter the bidding process, that they ignore the governments public relations people and the propagandists on news and analysis programs, and especially that they believe nothingabsolutely nothingthat PREPA management says.

Pedro Rosselló denounces Washington’s “colonial and imperial” governance

mikenova shared this story .

Madrid – The former governor of Puerto Rico (1993-2001) and president of the Equality Commission , Pedro Rossello , affirmed that the territory “is a living example of how Congress is governing in a colonial and imperial manner over its unincorporated territories . 

In an article published in EFE signatures, Rossello recalls that Puerto Rico is “the most populated and largest of the US territories” and, nevertheless, Washington “has turned a deaf ear to the claims of democracy and civil rights of American citizens (Americans) that resides in their territory. ”

The representative of Puerto Rico in the United States Congress explains that, although the inhabitants of the island were granted US citizenship in 1917, “the Congress has ruled over the island with plenary powers, and the territorial government and its laws have remained subordinate to the caprice of Washington. ”

“This imperial subordination prevents citizens of this American territory from voting in national elections, which deprives them of having a voice when choosing the president, vice president and members of Congress,” he adds.

He also regrets that, meanwhile, many young Puerto Ricans “have fought and served honorably in every war in the United States since the First World War.”

Rossello denounces that this colonial situation is maintained despite the fact that most Puerto Ricans have spoken out in up to two plebiscites during the last five years.

“In 2012, 54% of the electorate voted against the current colonial status, and 61% chose statehood as the best option for their political future,” he remarks, adding that “these results have been ignored by the federal government “

On June 11, 2017, in another consultation, “97% of those voters favored statehood for Puerto Rico,” he adds, to state that “to top it all off”, the United States Congress imposed a Board of Directors on Puerto Rico. Fiscal Supervision, “with the sole purpose of controlling the finances of the island from the federal capital.”

“American democracy is failing in its own territories (?). The time has come for the United States to stop acting like an imperial power and look in the mirror to see the real image of its democracy,” says Rossello, to conclude that “the time has come for the United States to renounce its modern imperialism.”

Pedro Rosselló denounces Washington’s “colonial and imperial” governance

mikenova shared this story .

Madrid – The former governor of Puerto Rico (1993-2001) and president of the Equality Commission , Pedro Rossello , affirmed that the territory “is a living example of how Congress is governing in a colonial and imperial manner over its unincorporated territories . 

In an article published in EFE signatures, Rossello recalls that Puerto Rico is “the most populated and largest of the US territories” and, nevertheless, Washington “has turned a deaf ear to the claims of democracy and civil rights of American citizens (Americans) that resides in their territory. ”

The representative of Puerto Rico in the United States Congress explains that, although the inhabitants of the island were granted US citizenship in 1917, “the Congress has ruled over the island with plenary powers, and the territorial government and its laws have remained subordinate to the caprice of Washington. ”

“This imperial subordination prevents citizens of this American territory from voting in national elections, which deprives them of having a voice when choosing the president, vice president and members of Congress,” he adds.

He also regrets that, meanwhile, many young Puerto Ricans “have fought and served honorably in every war in the United States since the First World War.”

Rossello denounces that this colonial situation is maintained despite the fact that most Puerto Ricans have spoken out in up to two plebiscites during the last five years.

“In 2012, 54% of the electorate voted against the current colonial status, and 61% chose statehood as the best option for their political future,” he remarks, adding that “these results have been ignored by the federal government “

On June 11, 2017, in another consultation, “97% of those voters favored statehood for Puerto Rico,” he adds, to state that “to top it all off”, the United States Congress imposed a Board of Directors on Puerto Rico. Fiscal Supervision, “with the sole purpose of controlling the finances of the island from the federal capital.”

“American democracy is failing in its own territories (?). The time has come for the United States to stop acting like an imperial power and look in the mirror to see the real image of its democracy,” says Rossello, to conclude that “the time has come for the United States to renounce its modern imperialism.”

The representative of the New Progressive Party (NPP), José ‘Memo’ González Mercado, asked the secretary of the Department of Public Security (DSP), Héctor Pesquera, to report the exact number of active agents, as well as the number of police who have resigned from the month of January 2017 to the present.

The legislator for district 14, which includes the municipalities of Arecibo and Hatillo, also asked to know what is the plan that has the DSP to tackle the recent criminal wave and face the exodus or mass resignation of police officers.

“The reasons for such a dramatic reduction in the police force, the backbone of security for our people, are many. But the reality is that we do not know the actual number of police that have left the force since January 2017, what are the positions that need reinforcement, such as investigations and cyber crimes, to name a few. That’s why we’re requesting that data. We also need to know the reasons for these items in order to develop a mitigation plan immediately, “said the statistician legislator in written statements.

The request of González Mercado is embodied in a joint resolution that took place yesterday, Tuesday, which orders the DSP to deliver the aforementioned information during a period that will not exceed 60 days.

“Definitely, we have to conduct a police census. We have to do a comprehensive study of the positions that need more personnel, especially in these times post hurricanes Irma and Maria. This resolution is directed to these ends. Together we will determine how we can best serve our police and citizens, “the representative added.

Puerto Rico lacked leadership, communication post-storm :: WRAL.com

mikenova shared this story .

By DANICA COTO, Associated Press

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Federal officials on Thursday blamed a lack of leadership, money and communication in Puerto Rico for setting back hurricane recovery efforts in the U.S. territory.

FEMA Deputy Regional Administrator Ahsha Tribble said the island’s bureaucracy and the power company’s inability to pay for supplies it ordered after Hurricane Maria slowed efforts to restore electricity. Nearly half a million power customers remain in the dark more than four months after the Category 4 storm, which destroyed two-thirds of the power distribution system, killed dozens of people and caused up to an estimated $94 billion in damage.

Tribble said it was “extremely difficult” to work with Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority immediately after the storm to figure out what it needed to rebuild the system. She also said the company’s financial constraints led to a lack of trust among FEMA suppliers and that appointing an interim power company director in the middle of the disaster led to challenges with leadership. In addition, communication was strained, she said.

“In an emergency, when you have eight layers of approval to get something done, it’s not working for us,” she said. “You put all that together, and it’s a recipe for disaster.”

Tribble was among several officials who spoke before a federal control board that oversees Puerto Rico’s finances and is considering a plan to privatize the power company, which is $9 billion in debt. It would be the largest restructuring of a public entity in U.S. history.

Energy experts told the board that a lack of maintenance, heavily loaded lines and shoddy work done by Puerto Rico’s power company over the years contributed to the power grid’s extensive failure after the hurricane.

Sanjay Bose, an official with ConEdison who was helping after the hurricane, said his crews in Puerto Rico observed many problems, including poles that had been installed at a more shallow depth than industry standard.

“It’s not one single thing that I can point my finger at,” he said. “Maintenance would have prevented some of the damage.”

Power company spokesman Geraldo Quinones referred a request for comment to the island’s financial authority, whose spokesman did not respond.

Col. Donovan Ollar of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers told the board that only 61 percent of the power company’s transmission system is now complete. Part of the problem is that some of the equipment Puerto Rico uses is unique to the island and is no longer made by manufacturers in the U.S. mainland. In addition, Puerto Rico uses 200 to 300 types of transformers when the industry standard is three to four, he said.

Ollar also said that makeshift repairs done by the power company to keep the system running prior to the hurricane created more work for his crews.

“It makes it problematic to come back and do it properly,” he said, adding that he wants to rebuild the system to mirror those in the U.S. mainland so when companies fly in, they can use the same equipment.

Officials noted that Puerto Rico did not activate a mutual aid agreement with mainland power companies until Oct. 31, more than a month after Hurricane Maria hit. Meanwhile, shortly after the storm, the power company’s former director signed a $300 million contract with a small Montana company called Whitefish Holdings Inc. to help with restoration efforts. The director has since resigned and the contract was cancelled.

FEMA official Ahsha Tribble defended that contract, saying that U.S. power companies under the mutual aid agreement were not capable of repairing the transmission system given the extent of the damage.

“That’s why the Whitefishes and Cobras of the world are necessary,” she said, referring to another company hired to help restore power.

However, Tribble added that hurricane response efforts have to be improved.

“We’re still learning what needs to be done,” she said. “We need to do better.”

Making a crypto utopia in Puerto Rico

mikenova shared this story .

Until the Puertopians find land, they have descended on the Monastery, a 20,000-square-foot hotel they rented as their base and that was largely unscathed by the hurricane.

Matt Clemenson and Stephen Morris were drinking beer on the Monastery’s roof one recent evening. Mr. Clemenson had an easygoing affect and wore two-tone aviators; Mr. Morris, a loquacious British man, was in cargo shorts and lace-up steel-toed combat boots, with a smartphone on a necklace. They wanted to make two things clear: They chose Puerto Rico because of the hurricane, and they come in peace.

“It’s only when everything’s been swept away that you can make a case for rebuilding from the ground up,” Mr. Morris, 53, said.

“We’re benevolent capitalists, building a benevolent economy,” said Mr. Clemenson, 34, a co-founder of <a href=”http://Lottery.com” rel=”nofollow”>Lottery.com</a>, which is using the blockchain in lotteries. “Puerto Rico has been this hidden gem, this enchanted island that’s been consistently overlooked and mistreated. Maybe 500 years later we can make it right.”

Other Puertopians arrived on the roof as a pack, just back from a full-day property-hunting bus tour. From the middle, Brock Pierce, 37, the leader of the Puertopia movement, emerged wearing drop crotch capri pants, a black vest that almost hit his knees and a large black felt hat. He and others had arrived on the island in early December.

“Compassion, respect, financial transparency,” Mr. Pierce said when asked what was guiding them here.

Mr. Pierce, the director of the Bitcoin Foundation, is a major figure in the crypto boom. He co-founded a blockchain-for-business start-up, Block.One, which has sold around $200 million of a custom virtual currency, EOS, in a so-called initial coin offering. The value of all the outstanding EOS tokens is around $6.5 billion.

A former child actor, Mr. Pierce got into digital money early as a professional gamer, mining and trading gold in the video game World of Warcraft, an effort funded partly by Stephen K. Bannon, the former Trump adviser. Mr. Pierce is a controversial figure — he has previously been sued for fraud, among other matters.

Downstairs, in the Monastery penthouse, a dozen or so other expats were hanging out. The water was out that night, so the toilets and faucets were dry. Mr. Minor lounged on an alcove chaise.

“The U.S. doesn’t want us. It’s trying to choke off this economy,” Mr. Minor said, referring to the difficulties that crypto investors have with American banks. “There needs to be a place where people are free to invent.”

Mr. Pierce paced the room with his hands in fists. A few times a day, he played a video for the group on his phone and a portable speaker: Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 “The Great Dictator,” in which Chaplin parodies Hitler rallying his forces. He finds inspiration in lines like “More than machinery, we need humanity.”

“I’m worried people are going to misinterpret our actions,” Mr. Pierce said. “That we’re just coming to Puerto Rico to dodge taxes.”

He said he was aiming to create a charitable token called ONE with $1 billion of his own money. “If you take the MY out of money, you’re left with ONE,” Mr. Pierce said.

“He’s tuned in to a higher calling,” said Kai Nygard, scion of the Canadian clothing company Nygard and a crypto investor. “He’s beyond money.”

The force of Mr. Pierce’s personality and his spiritual presence are important to the group, whose members are otherwise largely agnostic. Mr. Pierce regularly performs rituals. Earlier that day while scoping out property, they had stopped at a historic Ceiba tree, known as the Tree of Life.

“Brock nestled into the bosom of it and was there for 10 minutes,” Mr. Nygard said.

Mr. Pierce walked around the tree and said prayers for Puertopia, holding a rusted wrench he had picked up in the territory. He kissed an old man’s feet. He blessed a crystal in the water, as they all watched. He played the Chaplin speech to everyone and to the tree, Mr. Nygard said.

That wrench is now in the penthouse, heavy and greasy.

Later on, at a dinner in a nearby restaurant, the group ordered platters of octopus arms, fried cheese, ceviche and rum cocktails. They began debating whether to buy Puerto Rico’s Roosevelt Roads Naval Station, which measures 9,000 acres and has two deepwater ports and an adjacent airport. The only hitch: It’s a Superfund cleanup site.

Mr. Pierce had fallen asleep by then, his hat tilted down and arms crossed. He gets two hours of sleep many nights, often on a firm grounding mat to stay in contact with the earth’s electric energy. Josh Boles, a tall, athletic man who is another crypto expat, picked him up, and the group headed back to the Monastery.

They walked past a big pink building in an old town square, the start of their vision for Puertopia’s downtown. Once a children’s museum, they plan on making it a crypto clubhouse and outreach center that will have the mission “to bring together Puerto Ricans with Puertopians.”

Colonialistas e imperialistas en Washington DC

Rosselló denuncia que esta situación colonial se mantiene pese a que la mayoría de los puertorriqueños se han pronunciado en contra hasta en dos plebiscitos durante los últimos cinco años.“En el 2012, un 54% del electorado votó en contra del actual estatus colonial, y el 61% eligió la estadidad como la mejor opción para su futuro político”, remarca, para agregar que “estos resultados han sido ignorados por el gobierno federal”.El 11 de junio de 2017, en otra consulta, “el 97% de esos votantes favoreció la estadidad para Puerto Rico”, agrega, para manifestar que “para colmo de males”, el Congreso de Estados Unidos impuso sobre Puerto Rico una Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, “con el único propósito de controlar desde la capital federal las finanzas de la isla”.La democracia americana está fallando en sus propios territorios (?). Llegó el momento de que Estados Unidos deje de actuar como un poder imperial y se mire en el espejo para que vea la imagen real de su democracia”, manifiesta Rosselló, para concluir que “llegó la hora de que Estados Unidos renuncie a su imperialismo moderno”.Pedro Rosselló denuncia gobernanza “colonial e imperial” de WashingtonEl exgobernador dice que Estados Unidos ha ignorado los reclamos de la islaviernes, 9 de febrero de 2018Por Agencia EFEhttps://www.elnuevodia.com/noticias/politica/nota/pedrorossellodenunciagobernanzacolonialeimperialdewashington-2397373/¿Imperialismo moderno don Pedro?

Yo no se cual ha sido el feedback a la Comisión de Estatus en Washington DC, pero sí se, lo que ha pasado en Puerto Rico desde el 1992 hasta ahora. 

Los estadistas ya votaron dos veces y hasta se autoconvocaron en una marcha el día deBarbosa con una participación de 10 mil personas, según la prensa, cabe destacar que esa convocatoria fue de puertorriqueños republicanos, no demócratas.

Hablar de Estados Unidos en general no ayuda a que los puertorriqueños entendamos porque el estatus de Puerto Rico es tan difícil de resolver. 

La verdad es, que los demócratas nunca han querido que Puerto Rico se convierta en un estado, su alianza con el Partido colonial es histórica y los republicanos, a pesar de que presidentes han respaldado la estadidad, se desentienden del problema porque lamentablemente los puertorriqueños nunca han tenido, ni el respaldo de la sociedad civil, ni de la prensa, ni una lucha activa en Washington, como sucedió en la batalla de los independentistas contra la Marina en Vieques y como ahora sucede con los Dreamers, estos issues fueron y son del ala demócrata.

Pedro Pierluisi hizo una convocatoria en las afueras del Capitolio en Washington, con la participación de doña Miriam, Ileana Ros Lethinen, José Aponte, todos republicanos, y otros muchos estadistas que viajaron a la capital para participar y lo que hicieron los medios fue burlarse.

Lo que me indigna sobremanera es, que el gobernador Ricardo Rosselló siga insistiendo en que conseguirá un apoyo a la isla con los demócratas boricuas y aliados de Carmen Yulín, que en este momento votaron en contra sobre la aprobación del presupuesto y usan como excusa que no se incluyó legislación para beneficiar a los Dreamers, que no son puertorriqueños.

Estoy orgulloso de los demócratas que defendieron a los dreamers en las primeras horas de la mañana y emitieron un voto muy difícil en contra del acuerdo presupuestario del Senado. Este fue uno de los votos más duros que he tomado porque hay muchas cosas buenas en el paquete para la gente de mi distrito y para el pueblo de Puerto Rico, a quienes amo profundamente. Pero muchos demócratas se mantuvieron en el principio e hicieron lo que se nos ordenó moralmente hacer para proteger a nuestros conciudadanos estadounidenses, los soñadores.Desde septiembre, yo y otros demócratas hemos retenido nuestro apoyo al gasto obligatorio, al techo de la deuda y a los votos tope para evitar la tragedia de ver a dreamers deportados. A medida que expiren sus protecciones legales, se perderán más, y mientras enfrentamos el resto del año, nuestra capacidad para hacer que los republicanos respondan a nuestros valores se ha desvanecido. Claramente, necesitamos un nuevo camino a seguir.Hoy comienza el nuevo capítulo en la lucha para proteger a los dreamers que crecieron en este país y son nuestros compatriotas estadounidenses. Protegerlos de la deportación no es solo un acto de misericordia o altruismo para ellos y sus familias, es vital para proteger la reputación de los Estados Unidos y su posición en el mundo. La imagen de Estados Unidos deportando a sus compatriotas estadounidenses no es algo que este país o el partido republicano quieran que se desarrolle todas las noches en las noticias nacionales y locales. Y cuando los doctores deportados, los soldados y los docentes aparezcan encadenados en países extranjeros y concedan entrevistas en un inglés impecable sobre noticias locales e internacionales, manchará la reputación de la nación que todos amamos.El 5 de marzo, el número de soñadores que se vuelven indocumentados e incapaces de trabajar y vivir aquí sin el miedo constante a la deportación comienza a escalar diez veces. Por lo tanto, el reloj avanza fuerte para un nuevo modo de avanzar.Si los republicanos en el Congreso y en la Casa Blanca se toman en serio la idea de evitar el desagradable espectáculo de deportar a los dreamers, deben tender la mano y acercarse rápidamente. Hemos elaborado legislación bipartidista en el pasado y soy un veterano de esos esfuerzos, así que sé que hay buenas personas en ambos lados del pasillo que quieren hacer algo. Ahora solo necesitamos el coraje y la decencia para poner fin a las disputas y legislar una solución al problema y proteger a los Soñadores, y a los Estados Unidos, de la pesadilla que nunca debería haber tenido miedoLUIS GUTIERREZhttp://www.elvocero.com/el-mundo/luis-guti-rrez-explica-por-qu-vot-en-contra-de/article_5cc7cca2-0dca-11e8-959d-d395cc65dbf0.html¿Los Dreamer son sus compatriotas estadounidenses?

¿Y qué carajo somos nosotros?

Y uno se tiene que preguntar, 

¿cuál es la prioridad de los demócratas?

La respuestas es, los votos de la diáspora y ciudadanos hispanos, para reelegirse porque en este año hay elecciones. Luis Gutiérrez hasta ha insinuado que se postulará para presidente en el futuro.

José Serrano apoya un proyecto de descolonización 

pero no apoya la estadidad para Puerto Rico.

Mire lo que dice Aníbal Acevedo Vilá…

En relación con Puerto Rico, el silencio fue ensordecedor. Nadie esperaba párrafos sobre Puerto Rico, pero tampoco un mero I love you. Lo menos que ameritaba era un llamado suyo al Congreso para que apruebe con diligencia las medidas pendientes que son urgentes para la recuperación de la isla.En mi programa de radio, el congresista Adriano Espaillat citó varios puntos de conflicto entre republicanos y demócratas que se avecinan, como otro cierre de gobierno, la reforma migratoria, la necesidad de aumentar el tope de la deuda pública y el reclamo del presidente y los republicanos para aumentar el presupuesto militar sin incrementos en las asignaciones sociales. Estos elementos constituyen lo que Espaillat llamó una tormenta perfecta para dejar desprovisto a Puerto Rico de acción congresional. El silencio de Trump sobre Puerto Rico nos deja sin protección presidencial en medio de ese nuevo huracán que se avecina.Los mensajes del mensaje de TrumpPor Aníbal Acevedo Vilájueves, 1 de febrero de 2018https://www.elnuevodia.com/opinion/columnas/losmensajesdelmensajedetrump-columna-2394842/¿sin protección presidencial para un nuevo huracán que se aproxima?

¿Es él meteorólogo?

Me asombra la memoria corta de Aníbal Acavedo Vilá.

¿Quién no se olvida del Kazaltaso?

Nancy Pelosi no apoyó a Pierluisi en sus proyectos de estatus.

En el 2012 la estadidad ganó el primer plebiscito con un 54% y ganó el PPD la gobernación…

¿y qué hizo Barack Hussein Obama? ¡NADA!

¿Y qué hizo Alejandro García Padilla?

Practicamente decretó la República de Puerto Rico.

Ahora los demócratas pretenden que los puertorriqueños creamos que Donald Trump nos deja sin protección presidencial.

¿En serio?

¿Qué hace un pésimo exgobernador, que llevó al cierre del gobierno en el 2006 para espetarnos el IVU a un 7% engañando a legisladores penepés, que convocó la marcha de las habichuelas para presionar al presidente de la Cámara José Aponte, acusado por corrupto por Fiscalía Federal y miembro de la Internacional Socialista como lo es Aníbal Acevedo Vilá, en Washington acompañando a Ricardo Rosselló como si fueran los más grandes amigos de partido y en el ideal?

¿Por qué Aníbal invita a su programa a Adriano Espaillat quien es un político de Nueva York de origen dominicano, que pertenece al ala socialistoide del Partido Demócrata, junto a Bill deBlasio y Bernie Sanders?

Porque le importa un pito la estadidad para los puertorriqueños y mucho menos hacer quedar bien a Donald Trump con relación al tema de Puerto Rico.

Voy más atrás en el tiempo, en el 1998, cuando Pedro Rosselló fue gobernador, BTW muy amigo de los Clinton, se hizo un plebiscito y Aníbal Acevedo Vilá fue el más mezquino adversario para engañar a los puertorriqueños e inducirlos a que no votaran por ninguna de las opciones viables, la excusa, el huracán Georges, junto a Sila María Calderón hicieron la campaña por Ninguna de las anteriores y lograron que en Washington no se tomara en cuenta el 46% que sacó la opción de estadidad.

La lealtad de Nydia Velázquez está con Rafael Hernández Colón quien fue su padrino político, ella en varias ocasiones ha declarado que no le interesa resolver el estatus de Puerto Rico. ¿Perdió el tiempo el gobernador Rosselló? ¡Sí!

¿Qué significó esto?

Que en Washington entendieran que los puertorriqueños no queríamos cambiar nuestro estatus porque no era prioridad, la prioridad era recuperarse del huracán. Para ponerle la tapa al pomo, como dicen los cubanos, la lucha de Vieques nos puso al nivel de ser anti-fuerzas armadas, o sea, antipatrióticos, el mismo Bush dijo que los puertorriqueños no nos quieren allí.

No hay duda que en el 2017, los huracanes Irma y María, vinieron como anillo al dedo, tanto para los populares, como para los demócratas, para no tocar el tema del estatus.

Por eso no entiendo por qué Pedro Rosselló dice ahora que en Washington, “La democracia americana está fallando en sus propios territorios, si los primeros que fallan son, loscolonialistas y demócratas, con engaños y mentiras, para que en Washington no pase absolutamente nada con relación al estatus. La Junta Fiscal es una consecuencia del mal gobierno del Partido Popular y la dejadez de Barack Obama en el caso de Puerto Rico, a última hora antes de dejar la presidencia, soltó al terrorista Oscar López, para acabarnos de fastidiar.

También le votaron en contra a los proyectos de estatus del ex Comisionado Residente, Pedro Pierluisi.

Y ahora tenemos una Comisión de Estatus, y a la misma vez, unos cabilderos antiestadistas pidiendo fondos federales, visitando a congresistas antiestadistas en compañía del gobernador que prometió en su campaña que adelantaría la estadidad con un Plan Tenesí, peor aún, que en el pasado, dividieron a los penepés en una lucha entre los seguidores de Pedro Pierluisi y Ricardo Rosselló, antes de esto, Pedro Rosselló y Luis Fortuño, ni hablar de otros disidentes que ahora gozan de altos puestos en la administración y ya están creando discordia porque no aceptan las críticas del Presidente del Senado, Thomas Rivera Schatz.

Antes teníamos a un Comisionado Residente demócrata que llevó a la Cámara dos proyectos de estatus con apoyo demócrata y algunos republicanos, pero los mismos congresistas LuisGutiérrez y Nydia Velázquezcabildearon con el ala más racista de Partido Republicano y le votaron en contra, Pedro Pierluisi pierde unas primarias porque medio partido no lo apoyó y lo acusaron de no haber hecho nada, esto fue muy injusto.

Roger Wicker y Jimmy Duncan, curiosamente dos republicanos y aliados del PPD, que Gutiérrez y Velázquez usan para que voten en contra de los proyectos para resolver el estatus de Puerto Rico, para luego argumentar que los republicanos no nos quieren.

Ahora tenemos una Comisionada Residente republicana, que apoyó a Marco Rubio, criticó duramente a Donald Trump, que todavía no ha presentado un proyecto de estadidad en la Cámara, lo cual fue una promesa de campaña, un gobernador demócrata que se reúne con personas en Washington que no apoyan la estadidad y uno se tiene que preguntar… 

What the hell is going on?

Señores, la culpa no es de Donald Trump, ni de los republicanos, ni de los Estados Unidos, la culpa es de los mismos líderes estadistas que, primero, se reunen con la gente equivocada, y segundo, actúan de forma errática, por eso es que entre los mismos estadistas han perdido la confianza, se ven más como que quieren seguir administrando la colonia que luchar por la estadidad, ni tan siquiera han convocando a los puertorriqueños a organizarse como hacen los independentistas. Tampoco tienen aliados en la prensa colonial, mucho menos en los medios hispanos Univisión y Telemundo, pero tampoco apoyan algún medio que sea justo con los estadistas republicanos como podría ser Fox News.

Podemos entender que el huracán María lo cambió todo, eso lo entendemos perfectamente, pero la situación es clara, si Puerto Rico no cambia de estatus, la isla jamás mejorará. Si los puertorriqueños no se deciden a exigirle a los demócratas, resolver este problema centenario, jamás se resolverá. Mientras los líderes electos sigan en la demagogia política y haciendo alianzas con enemigos políticos e ideológicos, jamás gozarán de la confianza plena de los ciudadanos, que al final de cuentas son los más que más sufren porque hasta han tenido que mudarse a los estados para poder sobrevivir, porque lo han perdido todo.

¿Qué pretende Univisión con esto?

Ahora pretenden hacer campaña en Florida y Nueva York para que la diáspora se inscriba, vote y apoye a los demócratas en las próximas elecciones, y que además, los puertorriqueños apoyemos a los Dreamers. 

¿Cómo vamos a favorecer a un partido que nos ha traicionado históricamente?

Con todo el respeto que se merece don Pedro, no podemos quejarnos de Imperialismo moderno si somos nosotros quienes año tras año nos han sometido a todo esto y ahora nos conformamos con una partida de millones en un presupuesto. 

Para los que luchamos contra el populismo, no podemos quedarnos callados, cuando vemos que a nuestros líderes les importa más su bienestar personal y político, que el futuro de los puertorriqueños.

Such is Life!

 

Colonialists and imperialists in Washington DC

 

Rossello denounces that this colonial situation is maintained

despite the fact that the majority of Puerto Ricans have spoken against it in up to two plebiscites during the last five years. “In 2012, 54% of the electorate voted against the current colonial status, and 61% chose statehood as the best option for their political future , ” he remarks, adding that  “these results have been ignored by the federal government ” On June 11, 2017, in another consultation,  “97% of those voters favored statehood for Puerto Rico,” he adds, to state that “to top it all off”, the United States Congress imposed a Board of Directors on Puerto Rico. Fiscal Supervision, “With the sole purpose of controlling the finances of the island from the federal capital.” ” American democracy is failing in its own territories (?). The time has come for the United States to stop acting like an imperial power and look in the mirror to see the real image of its democracy, “ Rosselló says, to conclude that  ” the time has come for the United States to renounce its modern imperialism. ” Pedro Rosselló denounces Washington’s “colonial and imperial” governance The ex-governor says the United States has ignored the claims of islaviernes, February 9, 2018 by Agencia EFEhttps: //www.elnuevodia.com/noticias/politica/nota/pedrorossellodenunciagobernanzacolonialeimperialdewashington-2397373/ Modern Imperialism, Don Pedro?

I do not know what the feedback has been to the Status Commission in Washington DC, but I do know, what has happened in Puerto Rico since 1992 until now. 

Statesmen and voted twice and even  self – summoned  a march on the day of Barbosa  with a  participation  of 10 thousand people, according to press reports, note that this call was not Puerto Rican Democrats Republicans.

Talking about the United States in general does not help Puerto Ricans understand because the status of Puerto Rico is so difficult to solve. 

The truth is, the Democrats have never wanted Puerto Rico to become a state, its alliance with the colonial Party is historic, and the Republicans, despite the fact that the presidents have supported statehood, ignore the problem because, unfortunately, Puerto Ricans have never have had neither the support of civil society, nor the press, nor an active struggle in Washington, as happened in the battle of the independence against the Navy in Vieques and as now happens with the Dreamers, these issues were and are Democratic wing

Pedro Pierluisi made a call outside the Capitol in Washington, with the participation of Doña Miriam, Ileana Ros Lethinen, José Aponte, all Republicans, and many other statesmen who traveled to the capital to participate and what the media did was mock.

What annoys me greatly is that Governor Ricardo Rosselló continues to insist that he will get support for the island with the Puerto Rican democrats and allies of Carmen Yulín, who voted against the budget approval at this time and use as an excuse that Legislation was included to benefit the Dreamers, who are not Puerto Rican.

I am proud of the Democrats who defended the dreamers in the early hours of the morning and cast a very difficult vote against the Senate budget agreement. This was one of the hardest vows I have taken because there are many good things in the package for the people of my district and for the people of Puerto Rico, whom I love deeply. But many Democrats stayed in the beginning and did what we were morally ordered to do to protect our fellow Americans, the dreamers. Since September, I and other Democrats have withheld our support for mandatory spending, the debt ceiling and the votes Stop to avoid the tragedy of seeing deported dreamers. As their legal protections expire, they will lose more, and as we face the rest of the year, Our ability to make Republicans respond to our values has vanished. Clearly, we need a new way forward. Today begins the new chapter in the fight to protect the dreamers who grew up in this country and are our American compatriots. Protecting them from deportation is not just an act of mercy or altruism for them and their families, it is vital to protect the reputation of the United States and its position in the world. The image of the United States deporting its American compatriots is not something that this country or the republican party wants to develop every night in national and local news. And when the doctors deported, Soldiers and teachers appear chained in foreign countries and grant interviews in impeccable English on local and international news, it will tarnish the reputation of the nation we all love. On March 5, the number of dreamers who become undocumented and unable to work and to live here without the constant fear of deportation begins to climb ten times. Therefore, the clock is going strong for a new way forward. If Republicans in Congress and in the White House are serious about avoiding the nasty spectacle of deporting dreamers, they should reach out and approach quickly. . We have drafted bipartisan legislation in the past and I am a veteran of those efforts, so I know there are good people on both sides of the aisle who want to do something.http://www.elvocero.com/el-mundo/luis-guti-rrez-explica-por-qu-vot-en-contra-de/article_5cc7cca2-0dca-11e8-959d-d395cc65dbf0.html The Dreamer are your American compatriots?

And what the hell are we?

And one has to ask, 

What is the priority of the democrats?

The answer is, the votes of the diaspora and Hispanic citizens, to be reelected because in this year there are elections. Luis Gutiérrez has even hinted that he will run for president in the future.

José Serrano supports a decolonization project 

but it does not support statehood for Puerto Rico.

Look what Aníbal Acevedo Vilá says …

In relation to Puerto Rico, the silence was deafening. Nobody expected paragraphs about Puerto Rico, but neither a mere I love you. The least he deserved was a call to Congress to approve with diligence the pending measures that are urgent for the recovery of the island. In my radio program, Congressman Adriano Espaillat cited several points of conflict between Republicans and Democrats who are coming , like another government closure, the immigration reform, the need to increase the top of the public debt and the claim of the president and the republicans to increase the military budget without increases in social allocations. These elements constitute what Espaillat called a perfect storm to leave Puerto Rico devoid of congressional action. The silence of Trump over Puerto Rico leaves us without presidential protection in the midst of this new hurricane that is approaching. The messages of the Trump message by Aníbal Acevedo Vilájueves, February 1, 2018https: //www.elnuevodia.com/opinion/columnas/losmensajesdelmensajedetrump-columna-2394842/ without presidential protection for a new hurricane that is approaching?

Is he a meteorologist?

I am amazed by the short memory of Aníbal Acavedo Vilá.

Who does not forget the Kazaltaso?

Nancy Pelosi did not support Pierluisi in her status projects.

In 2012, statehood won the first plebiscite with 54% and the PPD won the governorship …

And what did Barack Hussein Obama do? NOTHING!

And what did Alejandro García Padilla do?

He practically decreed the Republic of Puerto Rico.

Now the Democrats want the Puerto Ricans to believe that Donald Trump leaves us without presidential protection.

Really?

What does a lousy former governor, which led to the closure of the government in 2006 to denounce the IVU to 7% deceiving legislators penepés, who called the march of the beans to put pressure on the president of the Chamber José Aponte, accused by corrupt Federal Prosecutor and member of the Socialist International as is Aníbal Acevedo Vilá, in Washington accompanying Ricardo Rosselló as if they were the greatest party friends and in the ideal?

Why does Aníbal invite to his program Adriano Espaillat who is a politician from New York of Dominican origin, who belongs to the socialist wing of the Democratic Party, together with Bill deBlasio and Bernie Sanders?

Because he cares a little statehood for Puerto Ricans, much less make Donald Trump look good in relation to the issue of Puerto Rico.

I go further back in time, in 1998, when Pedro Rosselló was governor, BTW very close to the Clintons, a plebiscite was held and Aníbal Acevedo Vilá was the meanest adversary to deceive the Puerto Ricans and induce them not to vote for any Viable options, the excuse, Hurricane Georges, along with Sila Maria Calderon made the campaign for None of the above and achieved that in Washington not take into account the 46% who took the option of statehood.

The loyalty of Nydia Velázquez is with Rafael Hernández Colón, who was her political godfather, and she has repeatedly declared that she is not interested in resolving the status of Puerto Rico. Did Governor Rosselló Waste His Time? Yes!

What did this mean?

That in Washington they understood that Puerto Ricans did not want to change our status because it was not a priority, the priority was to recover from the hurricane. To put the lid on the doorknob, as the Cubans say, the Vieques fight put us at the level of being anti-armed, that is, unpatriotic, Bush himself said that Puerto Ricans do not want us there.

There is no doubt that in 2017, the hurricanes Irma and María, came as a glove, both for the popular, and for the Democrats, not to touch the issue of status.

That is why I do not understand why Pedro  Rosselló  now says that in  Washington , “American democracy is failing in its own territories, if the first ones that fail are, the colonialists  and democrats, with deceptions and lies, so that  nothing happens in  Washington. in relation to  status . The Fiscal Board is a consequence of the bad government of the Popular Party and the neglect of Barack Obama in the case of Puerto Rico, at the last minute before leaving the presidency, released the terrorist  Oscar Lopez , to finish annoying us. 

They also voted against the status projects of the former Resident Commissioner, Pedro Pierluisi.

And now we have a Status Commission, and at the same time, anti-statist lobbyists asking for federal funds, visiting anti-state congressmen in the company of the governor who promised in his campaign that he would advance statehood with a Tennessee Plan, worse, than in the past, they divided the penepés into a fight between the followers of Pedro Pierluisi and Ricardo Rosselló, before this, Pedro Rosselló and Luis Fortuño, not to mention other dissidents who now enjoy high positions in the administration and are already creating discord because they do not accept the criticism of the President of the Senate, Thomas Rivera Schatz.

Before we had a Democratic Resident Commissioner who brought to the House two status projects   with Democratic support and some Republicans, but the same congressmen Luis Gutiérrez  and  Nydia Velázquez lobbied with the most racist wing of the Republican Party and voted against him, Pedro  Pierluisi  loses some primaries because half the party did not support him and accused him of not having done anything, this was very unfair. 

Roger Wicker and Jimmy Duncan, curiously two Republicans and allies of the PPD, that Gutiérrez and Velázquez use to vote against the projects to resolve the status of Puerto Rico, and then argue that the Republicans do not want us.

Now we have a Republican Resident Commissioner, who supported Marco Rubio, harshly criticized Donald Trump, who has not yet submitted a statehood project in the House, which was a campaign promise, a Democratic governor who meets with people in Washington who do not support statehood and you have to ask … 

What the hell is going on?

Gentlemen, the fault is not of Donald Trump, neither of the republicans, nor of the United States, the fault is of the same statesmen leaders who, first, meet with the wrong people, and second, they act of erratic form, for that reason is that among the statesmen themselves they have lost confidence, they see themselves more as wanting to continue managing the colony than to fight for statehood, they have not even called on the Puerto Ricans to organize themselves as the pro-independence activists do. Nor do they have allies in the colonial press, much less in the Hispanic media Univisión and Telemundo, but neither do they support any means that is fair to Republican statesmen like Fox News could be.

We can understand that Hurricane Maria changed everything, we understand that perfectly, but the situation is clear, if Puerto Rico does not change its status, the island will never improve. If the Puerto Ricans do not decide to demand from the democrats, solving this centennial problem will never be resolved. While the elected leaders continue in political demagoguery and making alliances with political and ideological enemies, they will never enjoy the full confidence of citizens, who in the end are the ones who suffer the most because they have even had to move to the states to be able to survive, because they have lost everything.

What does Univision intend with this?

Now they intend to campaign in Florida and New York for the diaspora to register, vote and support the Democrats in the next elections, and also, Puerto Ricans, to support the Dreamers. 

How are we going to favor a party that has historically betrayed us?

With all the respect that Don Pedro deserves, we can not complain about modern Imperialism if it is us who year after year have submitted to all this and now we are satisfied with a game of millions in a budget. 

For those of us who struggle against populism, we can not remain silent, when we see that our leaders care more about their personal and political well-being than the future of Puerto Ricans.

Oruro (Bolivia), 10 ene (EFE).- El Carnaval de Oruro (Bolivia) brindó hoy al mundo uno de los mayores espectáculos carnavalescos de Suramérica, con un espectacular desfile de miles de danzarines y músicos declarado Patrimonio de la Humanidad.
Un derroche de máscaras, trajes, danzas tradicionales, folclore que durante todo el día convierte a esta ciudad andina en una de las capitales mundiales del Carnaval, ante los ojos de miles de turistas venidos del resto de Bolivia, de América y del mundo.
Una riqueza cultural que Bolivia, puesto que a Oruro acuden compartas de todo el país con bailes ancestrales, “pone a los ojos del mundo”, relató a Efe Victoria Abril, una de las participantes en el kilométrico recorrido.
