  • Haitians get word of Trump crackdown, slow flow to border by 97%

    04/17/2017 2:26:23 PM PDT · by ColdOne · 17 replies ^ | 4/16/17 | Stephen Dinan
    Sometime around November, word began to trickle back down the spine of Latin America: The U.S. was getting stricter about letting in Haitians at the border. Not only had the Obama administration begun deporting Haitians after a six-year humanitarian pause, but President Trump also had just been elected, presaging an even tougher policy. Many of those en route, such as the hundreds staged at migrant camps in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, figured they had gone that far and had little to lose by trying to finish the journey north. But for the tens of thousands of Haitians in Brazil, Chile...

    Worshippers dressed in white, sacrificed goats and cows, smeared themselves with blood and then danced in a sacred pool in an effort to bring forth loa - spirits that help to run the universe and can grant blessings.  Followers of voodoo, the unofficial religion of the Caribbean island nation, gathered in the holy city of Souvenance over the weekend to take part in one of its largest annual celebrations. Most voodoo festivals coincide with Christian celebrations because former slaves were banned from practicing the religion; holding their celebrations on the same day as their Catholic masters was a good way of...
  • How US Crop Dumping Keeps Haiti Poor and Dependent

    Foundation for Economic Education ^ | March 14, 2017 | Michael Kastner
    Crop dumping is one of the most pernicious forms of U.S. foreign aid. Crop dumping is the transfer of massive amounts of food into an economy for free or at a below market price to feed “starving children.” The intention is lovely, but the policy carrying out the intention is abhorrent. These farmers cannot compete with the price of zero. In May 2016, the United States Department of Agriculture was caught in the act of “crop dumping” when they shipped 500 metric tons of peanuts to Haiti. Haitians and aid groups pleaded against this act of crop dumping, as it...

    Starjuin Regent is still waiting for Haitian government aid to help him rebuild his fishing business, which was destroyed last year by Hurricane Matthew. In the nearly five months since the massive category five storm hit, residents are still struggling to rebuild shattered homes and businesses. All the more reason then, for the ire of Regent and many others over millions of dollars spent by officials on upcoming carnival festivities in his hometown of Les Cayes.

    Dozens of emaciated men with sunken cheeks and protruding ribs lie silently in an infirmary at Haiti's largest prison, most too weak to stand.  The corpse of an inmate who died miserably of malnutrition is shrouded beneath a plastic tarp. Elsewhere, prisoners are crammed shoulder-to-shoulder in cellblocks so overcrowded they have to sleep in makeshift hammocks suspended from the ceiling or squeeze four to a bunk.

  • The Clinton-Silsby Trafficking (Haiti) Scandal And How The Media Attempted To Ignore/Cover It Up

    Abstract: Contrary to reports in the media, the crowd sourced investigation labeled by some as "Pizzagate" did not begin with internet sleuths digging through the Wikileaks Podesta Files releases looking for pizza parlors and encoded language discussing human trafficking. It began with the shocking discovery that Hillary and Bill Clinton provided assistance to convicted child trafficker, Laura Silsby, resulting in a reduced sentence for child trafficking. Silsby was arrested at the Haitian border attempting to smuggle 33 children out of Haiti without documentation. Her sentence and charges were reduced after an intervention by Bill Clinton. In the aftermath of Silsby's...

    Over 150,000 Haitians have immigrated to the northern Mexican state of Baja California in the past eight months, with many hoping to reach the United States. El Universal reported Monday that the equivalent of 1.5 percent of Haiti’s population had immigrated to the Mexican state. Haitians receive amnesty through Temporary Protected Status and thousands who have migrated to Mexico have hoped to take advantage of this benefit or receive asylum. Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, announced recently that removals of Haitians to their home country will be resumed. They had been suspended following Hurricane Matthew’s October...
  • State Dept helped Clinton Foundation donors get contracts after Haiti quake (Cheryl Mills lauded)

    Emails released by ABC News show that the State Department assisted "FOB"---friends of the Clintons---in facilitating government contracts and aid groups in the aftermath of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Ten billion dollars in government aid poured in; Bill Clinton sent out letters from the Foundation requesting more aid. "Friends of Bill Clinton" were flagged for special treatment by the State Department, while others who offered aid were redirected to a general government website. One example is billionaire Clinton Foundation donor Denis O’Brien. When the 2010 earthquake hit, his Jamaica-based telecom firm Digicel wanted to fly supplies into Port-au-Prince and get...

    Hillary did her best to rake Trump over the coals over his charities, but she is the one Americans should have been asking questions about all along. Not only is the amount of money actually sent out minuscule, the Clinton Foundation has been lying about the care it supposedly provides to the poor in the form of prescription medicine, via While Hillary and company claim to provide much needed drugs to third-world countries, that duty is actually handled by a separate charity, the Clinton Health Access Initiative. But, as always, Hillary likes to twist the facts just to draw...
