1. . . The New Statehood Movement was created in April 2002 to promote love and respect for our American Flag and badly needed knowledge and information of our American Institutions and the English language.
. . . We should see Puerto Rico in a similar way as "The Ugly Dockling" fairy tale which, with the pass of the time, transformed itself in a beautiful Swam. At this moment Puerto Rico is and island surrounded with ignorance by all sides.
. . . The pro-independence, anti-american and anti-English movement has penetrated the pro-Commonwealth Popular Democratic Party and the supposedly pro-statehood New Progressive party at all levels and are dictating or at least, influencing in the every day decision making of the two main parties.
. . . The three political parties in Puerto Rico has a tight and complete control of the Puerto Rican society and a "the facto" monopoly of all electoral processes. The three share equal authority in the State Electoral Commission making democracy to works in acceptable terms between them because each one check upon each other. The NPP is the only one that provides some degree of democracy inside its party. The PPD provides esporadic and isolated democratic actions to choose some of their candidates and the Pro-Independence party never allow their followers to choose any officer in their organization. They reelect and reelect themselves year after year. Jose Julio Diaz, JJDiaz@usa.com
SABANA SECA AMBUSH: December 3,1979
Unsolved crime #1. After 35 year, nobody, was accused or processed for this crime. Politicians, Newspeople, Historians, almost everybody forgot what happened that day. This attack was an attack to our liberties and standard of leavin.
The school bus journey started at 7:18 AM with sixteen sailors aboard in its daily trip to a Radar Site about just three miles away. In the almost deserted, narrow and winding country road, one man in a Pick-up truck placed himself in front of the bus in order to "slow" the speed of the Navy vehicle.
Three others, in a Van, placed themself beside the bus and, after openning the side door, Juan Segarra Palmer (actually in Jail) and Filiberto Ojeda (actually death) opened fire with powerful assault weapons. The first think the sailors did was hit the floor, but the shooters kept firing at the floor level. The AK-17 powerfull bullets passed the side thin metal of the bus with no resistance at all. Almost all of the victims received their wounds while they were laying on the bus floor.
Killed in the line of Duty:
01. Emile E. White, Saint Thomas, VI
02. John R. Ball, Madison Wisconsin
03. Cynthia C. Edwards
04. Debra J. Whitehurst

THE GENESIS OF ALL THESES PROBLEMS.
Here is Fernando Martin, General Secretary of the "supposely Democratic" pro Independence party with Fidel Castro in June 2001.
The pro independence organizations are not different groups isolated from each other with different goals. The are one and only one were one of them play first base, other play second and others move to different positons depending on the circunstances and conveniences of the moment.
They are controlling "the Facto" the Popular Democratic party and are in important leadership positions inside the New Progresive party in the persons of Sen. Norma Burgos and Toa Baja mayor Anibal Vega Borges.
Note:Copy and paste this articles. They reflect the hidden reasons why Puerto Rico, after 107 years, is not a state of the union. "You can fool all the people some of the time and you can fool some . . . . ."
a. The San Juan Star- Readers’ Viewpoint- October 24,1994
Plots By Politicians
. . . Immediately the use of English as a language of instruction was prohibited in the public school system. Since then, teachers in Puerto Rico can teach English but they can’t teach “in English”.
There was no significant opposition from the local pro-statehood Republican Party at the moment.
. . . This 46 year-old political plot of the three political parties has been a discriminatory policy against the use of the English language in the public school system and it is still in effect today. There shall be no law under the American Flag that prohibits an American Citizen from receiving education in the English language.
. . . This policy does not affect private schools where 99% of high ranking government officials and legislators send their children to receive the education that they deny to the rest of the people of Puerto Rico.
. . . Another political plot concerns the U.S. Navy. The politicians of the three political parties have been making a political issue of this situation. They are making a simple mathematical equation; “getting the Navy out equals votes from Vieques residents equals good will for the party from the rest of the population. “In the political spectrum of local politics everything seems to be more important than national defense.
. . . They are not asking for the closing of the army post Fort Buchanan in San Juan or the Navy Base at Roosevelt Roads or the closure of the many National Guard units in Puerto Rico because they produce thousand of jobs and inject millions of dollars into the economy.
. . . Unfortunately, that is not the case for Vieques which is only a firing range. Because it does not produce jobs or money they should get out. What kind of American citizens are we?
. . . The return of 8,000 acres will definitely improve the economy of the island but not in the way and magnitude that the parties are trying to demonstrate. The rhetorical strategy is to blame the Navy for all the problems of Vieques. They are giving the impression that if the Navy goes, Vieques will become a paradise. People like to hear this kind of thing.
. . . We need to remember 15 years ago when the use of Culebra Island was a political issue promoted by nationalist forces. There were many demonstrations, marches, pickets, newspaper articles, speeches and all kinds of rhetoric to get the Navy out. Fifteen years later the Island of Culebra is not the paradise that it was supposed to be. Only on weekends does it receive some visitors, but never more than before. Only a few more people live on the island and a lot more garbage is produced.
. . . More than that, politicians and hundreds of followers do not visit Culebra because there is no excuse to go there. Now they go to Vieques and spend all their money there. If the Navy gives the land to the municipality, Vieques will lost its main tourism attraction in the same way Culebra did; politicians will not visit the Island anymore.
. . . The giveaway of those 8,000 acres of land will cause a lot more ecological damage to the environment in civilian hands than in military hands. If the commonwealth and the big cities of Puerto Rico with huge budgets can not handle their environmental affairs, why should we believe the the small municipality of Vieques will do it? Irreversible ecological damage will be done if the land is given to civilians. Jose Julio Diaz, Carolina

"STATEHOODERS WHO TALK LIKE INDEPENDENTISTAS"
San Juan is promoting the celebration of the Puerto Rican flag day. Something that pleases Independentistas a lot.
. . . The same speaker, together with many other New Progresive Party legislators, promotes the exclusion of Puerto Rico from the Jones act, which forces all states to use American flag ships between U.S. ports. If this is achieved, Independentistas will be very happy.
. . . The Speaker and many others also "recognized" that political prisioners do exist in U.S. jails. This has been a lie repeated so many times that even the speaker ended by believing it.
. . . Pro-Independence advocates were euphoric when NPP legislators, in August 1991, together with Populares and Independentistas voted in favor of a law that legalized what had been public policy of the Education Department since 1948, the prohibition of the "use" of the English language to teach in the public School System of Puerto Rico.
. . . I never have see an independentista doing anything to take Puerto Rico closer to the United States, but I have seen many times self-called statehooders who act and speak like independentistas by promoting Puerto Rican nationalism, as "Cucusa" Hernandez is doing now.
. . . I don't understand how the NPP will bring statehood to Puerto Rico by promoting pro-independence ideas. If the speaker believes statehood votes are already in the bag she is dead wrong. Puerto Rican nationalism is statehood's worst enemy and any person who really wants statehood should not vote in favor of a person who uses statehood votes to promote anti-statehood ideas. Jose Julio Diaz, Carolina

"LOW PRIORITIES FOR THE NPP"
. . . Only two things will not happen at the activity. Our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, won’t be sung and none of the musicians performing that night will play a single song in English.
. . . These two things, the “use” of the English language and the “love” for the U.S. have very low priorities in the NPP agenda. Maybe they have no priority at all. Jose Julio Diaz, Carolina
The San Juan Star-Readers' Viewpoint-Thursday June 20, 1996
. . . A party platform is a list of promises the party makes to the people which will be carried out if the party is elected. The platform, once approved, compels all party members to abide by its content. If approved, a party member that does not openly agree with a part of it could be labeled as “against the party,” a “dissident” or even a “traitor.” In other words, the party is deciding right now how its legislators will vote next year, giving them absolutely no choice.
. . . Believe it or not, the platform that will be presented contains a 21-year old Puerto Rican Independence Party proposal to change our two-chamber legislative system into one chamber. If the party’s goal is achieved it will result in harmful and permanent damage to our democratic system of “checks and balances.”
. . . The pro-independence party supports this option for two reasons. First, it takes us another step away from the United States by making us “more different.”
. . . Second, and more important, it gives small but militant, vociferous and aggressive minorities such as labor unions, teachers associations and the pro-independence party itself, "more power to promote, stop, or at least modify legislative bills".
. . . If you ask somebody inside the NPP leadership he or she will tell you that it is only a proposal to “let the people decide” when in reality the people’s decision is already made. The people’s decision is based on the information they receive and Gov. Rosello has already invested a lot of time and effort for the last 18 months paving the way for this constitutional amendment.
. . . The rest of the NPP leadership, reluctantly, has agreed with the unicameral idea. Inside the NPP nobody dares to criticize the governor openly, even if his actions-once more- take us farther away from statehood.
. . . In summary, with all pro-independence advocates, half of the Popular Democratic Party and the NPP leadership in favor of unicameralism, there is no doubt Puerto Rico will have a unicameral legislature at the beginning of the new millenium if this proposal is introduced and approved Sunday at the NPP assembly. The enemies of statehood will be very happy. Jose Julio Diaz, Carolina.

"PUERTO RICAN IDENTITY"
. . . In your last paragraph you wrote:
. . . “Today Puerto Ricans of all parties and ideologies are much more aware of, and proud of, and determined to protect their cultural identity than ever before in this island’s history.”
. . . I would have rather finished the article with these other paragraphs:
. . . Today, the pro-statehood New Progressive leaders are the only ones that can act and talk as anti-Americans and can’t be accused of wanting separation from the United States.
The NPP politicians are aware that, as long as Puerto Rico is not a state, they have a monopoly on the statehood votes and they are determined to please the anti-American movement as much as they can.
. . . By keeping the rest of the people of Puerto Rico ignorant of foreign languages (English), Isolated from foreign cultures (American), and keeping a separate Olympic team (to play against the United States), they become the saviors and protectors of the language, culture and the Olympic sports of Puerto Rico,
. . . With this policy, the NPP swept the last elections and got many votes from PDP followers and pro-independence advocates; and Puerto Ricans (you, me and all of us) have become, de facto, parasites of the United States.
