Puerto Rico’s Complicated History with the United States



In February 1898, Puerto Ricans had a lot to celebrate. After centuries of Spanish colonial rule, they had just become an independent part of Spain, complete with a Constitution and voting rights. But within only a few years, the U.S. would throw all that asunder, paving the way for Puerto Rico’s nonvoting territory status today.

It all started with the Spanish-American War, which began in the spring of 1898, when Puerto Rico was a Spanish territory. The U.S. invaded Puerto Rico not only because it was a Spanish territory, but also due to its interests in developing a sugar market there, says Lillian Guerra, a history professor at the University of Florida.

“When the Americans arrived, General [Nelson] Miles issued, very famously, a decree manifesto in which he promised to protect the life, liberty, and happiness of Puerto Ricans, and their property,” she says. “A lot of Puerto Ricans who were poor, who were working-class, who were peasants, took this as an invitation to side with the Americans in what was still a war against Spain.”

To support the U.S., Puerto Ricans began to attack Spanish-owned businesses and property. But “to their great shock and awe,” Guerra says the Americans did not keep their promises after they won the war, when Spain ceded Puerto Rico to the U.S. in the Treaty of Paris. The U.S. ignored the new, democratically-elected local parliament of Puerto Rico in favor of creating its own colonial system.

With the westward expansion of the 19th century, the U.S. established “incorporated territories” that could and did become formal American states—like the Colorado Territory. But in 1901, a series of legal opinions known as the Insular Cases argued that Puerto Rico and other territories ceded by the Spanish were full of “alien races” who couldn’t understand “Anglo-Saxon principles.” Therefore, the Constitution did not apply to them, and Puerto Rico became an “unincorporated territory” with no path forward to statehood.

In addition, the U.S. disrupted Puerto Rico’s coffee industry, implementing a sugar economy and creating massive poverty among the population. “Within the first 10 years of the U.S. occupation of Puerto Rico, U.S. sugar interests had pretty much taken over, and the Puerto Rican coffee class has been displaced entirely,” Guerra explains.

Puerto Ricans were outraged after the war. Instead of becoming citizens, Puerto Ricans were in limbo. “They didn’t even have a passport; they didn’t have any legal standing in the U.S. system until 1917.”

That year, Puerto Ricans became U.S. citizens under the Jones-Shafroth act—this way the U.S. could deploy them as troops during World War I (similar to how the Emancipation Proclamation legalized the Union’s use of black troops). The federal government believed that white people weren’t suited to fight in tropical climates because they didn’t have immunity to the diseases found there. Instead, the U.S. sent Puerto Rican “immunes,” as they were called, to defend the Panama Canal.

Although they were now U.S. citizens, Puerto Ricans could not vote for president or elect voting senators or representatives to the U.S. Congress. In fact, they still can’t.

Since 1901, Puerto Ricans have only been able to elect a nonvoting “resident commissioner of Puerto Rico” to the U.S. House of Representatives. Like the United States’ other territories of Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa, as well as the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C., Puerto Ricans have no real representation in Congress. And unlike D.C., which gained the right to vote for president with the 23rd Amendment in 1961, none of the American citizens in these territories can vote for the president of their country.

“They have a voice in Congress who has no vote, not even on legislation related to Puerto Rico,” Guerra says. “So the result of that is that nobody cares about Puerto Rico, and its government is basically only in control of local financial matters and the distribution of aid that comes from the federal government as well as its own tax base.”

During the 20th century, various Puerto Ricans have sought to win complete independence for their islands from the United States. However, Guerra says that the federal government quashed these attempts through overt censorship and the repeated jailing of revolutionary leaders, like the independence movement leader Pedro Albizu Campo who was jailed in 1936 for organizing Puerto Rican workers.

“It’s still a country that is dominated by U.S. investors,” Guerra says. “And you should know that most U.S. companies pay virtually no taxes to the Puerto Rican state.” This combined with the local government’s massive corruption has created an economic crisis. In September 2017, these economic problems worsened with the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria, which will require extensive rebuilding.

Is there any hope for Puerto Rico becoming a state in the future? After all, the reason they’re not is because more than a century ago, a judge said that Puerto Ricans were too racially inferior to be a part of the U.S. legal system. Today, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, whose parents were born in Puerto Rico, sits on the highest court of law in the United States—the Supreme Court.

Just a few months before Hurricane Maria, Puerto Ricans actually voted in favor of a referendum for statehood. But unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how many Puerto Ricans vote for it. The only people who can incorporate the islands into a state are the voting members of Congress.

“It’s very unlikely that statehood will ever happen, at least not in our lifetimes, unless something in the political culture of the U.S. Congress shifts radically to suddenly embrace Latin Americans, Latinos, and Puerto Ricans,” she says. “And I don’t think we’re going that direction.”

Mere Monuments or Ancient Enigmas?

When examining some of the ancient structures it seems inconceivable, almost incomprehensible the people who lived in our distant past could possibly have ever created such enormously impressive stone monuments and delicately tooled items, but somehow, they are there – and we’re not just talking about a couple of odd items here either, there are absolutely hundreds of them in all shapes, sizes and forms.

Ancient Monuments, Sunken ruins, Incredible Pyramids, strange and ‘out of place’ artifacts of a scientific or mechanical nature, and even odder things, in almost all countries, right across the entire expanse our globe.

Thankfully, in recent years a number of very reputable scientists, mathematicians and archeologists have begun to realize that things are quite simply not what they have seemed and are beginning to explore some of the more radical possibilities of mans beginnings that evidence has suggested. In this time several new fields of study have also opened up within the science community. Undoubtedly one of the most intriguing of these fields must surely be the study of ‘Ooparts’ or ‘Out-Of-Place-Artifacts’ though often the study of these Ooparts can present a good deal more questions than it can answers.

Before the study of Ooparts was recognized as a genuine (though still highly criticized) field of study, such items were usually considered merely as curio’s or archeological oddities. An out of sight, out of mind approach was invariably adopted towards any such artifacts and they were quickly locked away or, in acts of gross irresponsibility, dumped at sea before anyone noticed, so
as not to rock ‘the archeological, anthropological or historical boat’, so to speak. Many such artifacts are rumored to have been dumped off the coast of America by the Smithsonian Institute – after all, who wants to re-write all those history books? Such out of place artifacts were usually deemed ‘painful’ or ‘time wasting’ because they invariable provide evidence that is contrary to the orthodox tenet we are presented with, and they raise far too many questions for the closed minded. They can be the most intriguing questions too. All of these artifacts ultimately question our past as they simply don’t belong where they were found and definitely don’t fit in with in with what we “know” to be mans history.

Yet here they are, right before our eyes. For example:

How could ancient Jewelry bear evidence of electroplating?

How could a stone slab and set of earplugs from the Aztec era bear the signs of being machine cut at a time when there were supposed to be no machines?

How can there be ancient maps that accurately show the Antarctic coast and continent, free from ice, hundreds of years before it was even discovered?

How could a lump of coal have a delicate gold chain trapped inside?

How can there be numerous signs on earth that suggest ancient atomic or nuclear warfare?

How can ancient Indian texts contain scores of pages of complicated flight manuals?

How can ‘modern human’ fossils exist?
How could people in ancient times have moved 800 ton blocks of stone?

How could the Mayans have built have built those gap free Megalithic Fortresses?

How could a 500,000 year fossil encrusted geode contain a spark plug within it?

How can there be a computer code or algorithm encoded into the text of the Bible?

And that’s just a few of the examples. There are literally dozens more. In the ensuing investigations of such enigmatic riddles and artifacts there have been many amazing, and sometimes downright outrageous, statements made by people in numerous publications throughout the world; so many in fact, that it becomes difficult to distinguish truth from fiction. Theories have been put forth concerning vast armies of slaves, teams of craftsmen devoting their entire lives to the completion of one small object, Master stone masons, Alien Intervention, Beings from other dimensions, Time Travelers, ‘Gods’ from other planets.

All have been suggested as possible explanations, and the list goes on. At this point you may be asking, ‘But why should we really care anyway? What’s all the fuss about? The past is just the past - isn’t it?’

Well, interestingly enough, such may not always be the case, because the past may also be a good indication of the future and, (not withstanding the fact that it would just be awfully nice to actually know the truth,) there are many scholars who believe that there are certain routine events that occur on Earth that concern both mankind and the planet we live on significantly. Many believe them to be events that are, in fact, a normal part of our solar system’s rotational mechanism and that they happen in regular and predictable orbital cycles.

There also is real evidence to suggest that the people of Earths ancient past possessed some very detailed information concerning these events. Many of them based their entire cultures, sciences and religions on them! And there are also other more esoteric signs: Enigmatic references and hints of a hidden book or code with which we may be able to unlock these mysteries of our past and future.

The Mercedes-Benz Zetros is an off-road truck designed to operate in extreme conditions, but that doesn’t mean it can’t offer the comfort of a home, if that’s what the customer wants.

That’s the reasoning behind the Mercedes-Benz Zetros mobile home, a truck built in collaboration with Hartmann Spezialkarosserien (body) and Hünerkopf (interior equipment).

On display at the Caravan Show in Düsseldorf (August 30 – September 7), the Zetros truck carries a 5.6-meter (220.5-in) long and 2.4-meter (94.5-in) wide body painted in the vehicle color, which houses the living area.

The walls, roof and floor are made of one-piece, galvanized and plastic-coated panels, with a maximum wall thickness of 100 mm (3.94 in). The body features an electrically powered slide-out to the left in the direction of travel with a carbon-fiber outer skin and pneumatic seals which increases the living area to a length of 2.5 meters (98.4 in).

A passage allows the transition from the cab to the body, which features everything one would need in a house. An L-shaped seating arrangement with kitchenette is complemented in the central section by a bathroom with washroom and toilet plus a separate shower cubicle. A double bed completes the accommodation at the rear.

The materials used inside include real-wood veneer in bird’s-eye maple, lightweight natural stone and breathable genuine leather, among others. The Zetros mobile home has an entertainment system with automatic satellite dish and internet connection, while the living and sleeping areas are each equipped with an LED screen. A Bose sound system completes the package.

The Zetros mobile home is powered by a 7.2-liter inline six-cylinder diesel engine producing 326 PS (322 hp), mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Long journeys in remote areas are no problem for the truck, which is fitted with tanks holding 300 l of fresh water and 600 l of diesel fuel, a power generator, as well as a solar energy system with lithium-ion batteries.

Much of the physical remains of humanity’s ancient past has been swallowed up and hidden from sight by the vast oceans of our planet. With the use of our technological advancements, we’ve been able to survey the sea floor in different parts of the globe and have made discoveries that have altered what we understood about our ancient history. Through the curation of artifacts and the study of these ancient architectures, we have a more accurate mapping of the chronology of humanity than ever before.

In the waters of Alexandria, Egypt lies the long lost ruins of the palace and temple complex of Egypt’s last queen, Cleopatra. It is believed to have been submerged more than 1,600 years ago due to tsunamis and seismic activity causing it to slide into the sea. After thoroughly surveying the ruins, the descriptions of the city left by Greek geographers 2,000 years ago have been confirmed for true. Statues, coins, artifacts, and treasures have been recovered completely intact and in near perfect condition from this sunken site. The sculptures found in these ruins are breath taking depictions of Egyptian mythology and life style, the beauty of which is rivaled only by the sculptors of the ancient Chinese dynasties. Experts also believe to have located Cleopatra’s tomb along with an ancient museum in the ruins. Ancient literatures, documents and archeological information have all made claims that offered reason to believe that the region of Alexandria, Egypt was of great importance, though we did not have much physical evidence as to why this was. In 1992, topographical researchers began to study the region and its coast in hopes of discovery, unaware of the historical treasure trove to be stumbled upon under the sea.

Off the shores of Yonaguni, Japan lies fully submerged ruins that have been dated back to an estimated 10,000 years old. There are no signs of natural disaster that may have caused these ruins to fall into the sea, leading researchers to believe that these structures were built anywhere from 8,000-12,000 years ago when the sea level was much lower due to Earth’s most recent ice age freezing much of the Earth’s water at the polar caps. The depth of these ruins ranges from 20-100 feet below sea level. These structures are speculated to have been built by the Jomon, the pre-historic inhabitants of Japan. The architecture of these ruins features steps, archways, statues, pyramids, and an obvious understanding of stonemasonry. It is also believed that the Jomon were the first humans on the planet to develop pottery. It was not until 1995 that an underwater explorer by the name of Kihachirou Aratake accidentally swam too far off shore and stumbled across these monolithic structures.

In the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India rests an enormous ancient city that is roughly five miles long and two miles wide. The city, known as the ancient city of Lord Krishna, had existed only in myth until its discovery. It was found by chance in 2001 by a group of oceanographers set out to conduct a survey over the pollution in the area. Through the use of sonar, they stumbled across vast geometric structures 120 feet below sea level. Due to the treacherous nature of the waters that these ruins rest in, the strong currents and riptides made it difficult for divers to study the region initially. With samples recovered from the ruins such as construction materials, sculptures, sections of walls, and even human bones and teeth, researchers have dated this city and its civilization back roughly 9,500 years, predating the oldest known remains found on the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years. Until now, the oldest cities of this size that have been discovered were the ancient cities in Mesopotamia, which only date back about 4,500 years. It is believed that this city was submerged under water at the end of the last ice age, like the ruins near Yonaguni, when the polar caps began to melt. This discovery has altered everything we thought we had understood about human history; the amount of time between this lost civilization and the work of the ancient Egyptians is the same amount of time between the ancient Egyptians and today.

These ancient, subaqueous realms are only but a few of the dozens we have uncovered today and those dozens are likely only the cusp of all that our planet has to offer on the mystery of our past. As we continue to scour the depths of our oceans we will continue to discover the long lost remains of our ancients and may one day be able to complete the puzzle that is human history. A few more sunken cities of our ancients that would be of interest to anyone looking to learn more are the Lion City of Quiandao Lake, China, Olous of the Mediterranean Sea, Greece, Lapita Village of Mulifanua Bay, Samoa, Pheia of the Mediterranean Sea, Greece, The Dian Kingdom of Fuxian Lake, China, and many more.
