I didn’t hear Glenn Beck’s radio show today but I did see some of his TV show. The U.S. House will vote to allow Puerto Rico to become a U.S. state. This is a complicated matter but the video gives an excellent explanation of the coming convoluted action in the House of tomorrow, April 29, with a vote on the Puerto Rico Democracy Act (H.R.
2499). See a video below.
This involves a new political party in Puerto Rico – The Progressive Party – which has figured out how engineer the Territory of Puerto Rico into U.S. statehood, even though Puerto Rico has never wanted statehood in the past. There are sources that I cannot cite that say the New Progressive Party “advocates for Puerto Rico’s admission to the United States of America as the 51st state. Since 2008, I believe I am correct saying that the Progressive Party holds a large majority in their House of Representatives and Senate.
Important: Please call your Congresscritters on Friday April 29 – early as possible, as we don’t know the time of the vote. Tell them to vote NO on H.R. 2499.
The possibility is that Puerto Rico becomes a state, and the Democrats gain 6 Congressmen and 2 Democrat Senators.

Basically, what they’ll do is rig the questions so that most Puerto
Ricans wind up voting for statehood, especially because American
citizens with Puerto Rican heritage can vote. There are more Puerto
Rican-Americans than there are citizens of Puerto Rico and Puerto
Rican-Americans are in favor of statehood for Puerto Rico. Once Puerto
Rico becomes a state, there’s no doubt the Puerto Ricans will vote for
the Democrats. Their national median income is about a third what it is
in the US, so we’ll be adding about 4 million Puerto Ricans to the
Quietly sailing through the House this week is yet another piece of partisan stealth legislation aimed at manufacturing more Democrat power at the expense ofthe American people, the economy and the country.
Not only is Puerto Rico already a fully-functioning democracy, but it
has also repeatedly rejected attempts to turn it into a U.S. state, for
But still, desperate to create new Democrat voters and
elected officials, the left is now aggressively setting the stage for
the creation of a 51st state.
Due to its dense population of
poverty-stricken minorities, Puerto Rico can be counted on to vote
overwhelmingly for Democrats and all their handouts, and their
representation will also consequently outnumber that of 25 other
existing U.S. states.
Meanwhile, with Puerto Ricans having
an average income of less than half that of our poorest state, they will
instantly become eligible for dozens of our welfare programs. Truckloads
of taxpayer dollars will also have to be perpetually dumped into the
territory, by federal law, to bring it up to American infrastructure and

* The U.S. would transform, overnight, into a bilingual nation. At least
half of Puerto Ricans do not speak English, the language of our U.S.
Constitution and founding documents. The Washington Times article,
“Puerto Rican statehood,” analyzes all the implications of adding a
foreign language-speaking state to the Union.
