Update alert--House votes for Puerto Rico statehood


w ww.examiner.com

First, the U.S. House of Representatives, as expected, voted Thursday to 'allow Puerto Rico to decide on statehood,' although they already have such a right and have exercised it three times to turn down becoming the 51st state.

What the representatives actually did was to pull a smoke-and-mirrors bait-and-switch maneuver to appease the New Progressive Party of Puerto Rico, which is pushing relentlessly for statehood. The new bill will change the wording of the question on the ballot...

The change is expected to give statehood proponents more votes, as Conservative Examiner explained here. All of this is part of the grand scheme of Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats (and RINOS) to steal U.S. elections for the next 60 years by naturalizing as many non-citizens (illegal aliens) as possible, which will give upwards of 20 million people from Mexico the right to vote, and by granting Puerto Rico statehood, which will give them 2 U.S. Senators and 6 Representatives in the House.

It goes without saying the implications for this are enormous. The country is under assault from non-citizens, and the charlatans who are supposed to be looking out for U.S. interests in the Congress are helping them do it.

This is all the more reason to get rid of the entire lot and start over this November.


All of this scandal, right at the very moment where the SHTF is flying high and low, then comes this little gem of scandal...

Seems America may have to take to the streets of Washington D.C. to show how Americans can enforce their rights when oppressed by political thieves

Wow. I served with quite a few Peurto Ricans when I was in the army. Every single one or them, when the discussion turned to statehood, stated they did not want to be a state. They enjoyed, and their families enjoyed the association with the U.S. The benefits they received. The ability to hold security clearances within the military. The retirement benefits, etc. But to actually be a U.S. state? Nope. They declared their country had too much to lose by being part of the U.S., as in a state. Meanwhile they got the bennies, but had less BS than if their island nation was a state.
