The holocaust in Ayiti continues. The insane imperial narrative and custom of honoring rapists, murderers, torturers, degenerate pedophile maniacs, pillagers, plunderers, enslavers and poverty pimps, starting with Christopher Columbus, who set forth the most prolonged genocides and horrific terrors in recorded human history, continues today. Officialdom honors the UN and UN envoys to Haiti as "humanitarians" or "God" bringing security, stability, peace, law, Christian ethos and "Western civilization." Too many have jobs, egos, power and prestige invested in the profit-over-people system to see that the current saviors of Haiti extend mostly the same narcissistic, cultural blindness and denials as the initial "missionaries/humanitarians" brought to Haiti in 1492.
Until the lies that bolsters the current US takeover of Haiti is as recognized as Columbus himself ought to be recognize as a cannibal, terrorist and barbarian, Haiti will continue to be an evidence that must be annihilated. A nation the "discoverers" occupying Ayiti (Haiti) today must try to eradicate, or as they euphemistically put it, "save."
...[T]he Haitian people want the UN occupation to be over, therefore the people can't ask the United Nations to leave without also requesting Bill Clinton, the UN Special Envoy and his UN Deputy Envoy (Paul 'the god' Farmer) to also get out of Haiti, take their NGO/UN tutelage, sham elections and their World Bank/IMF death plans with them."--Ezili Danto of HLLN, Oct. 10 2011
Barrack Obama abdicated the easiest country to dominate to his democratic rival, the Clintons, accomplishing many things, including squashing internal party dissension, making the UN useful for the world oligarchy and US exceptionalism while deflecting charges of racism and imperialism in Haiti. The Bush/Clinton fund for Haiti gave Obama his first bi-partisan achievement/photo op. Obama's handlers use Bill Clinton --uhmm the first "black president?" (if you ask some retarded African-American opportunist from the Clinton Administration) to help run Haiti through the auspices of the UN in Haiti in the same way George W. Bush used Condi Rice and Colin Powell to help take down the democratically elected Haiti government in 2004.
Bill Clinton's chief of staff, Gary Conille, who does not meet the Constitutional requirements to be prime minister, is proposed and ratified as prime minister. As Conille becomes Prime Minister, Clinton gains a hand-picked Clinton chief of staff as his co-chair at the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC). The Haiti Parliament ruling that Gary Conille meets the residency requirements is clearly nonsensical and unconstitutional. If Raymond Joseph, a HAITI ambassador for more than five years under Latortue and Preval, did not meet the 5-year residency requirement to run for president in Haiti in 2006, why would an employee of the UN have more rights than a Haiti ambassador (defacto though he was) and be afforded residency in Haiti as a UN employee? This not only shows the mockery the number one superpower in the world makes of international and national laws but illustrates the power and strong arm of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Haiti as implementer of US neoliberal plan and colonial policies. It's merely the continued consolidation of the return of the Washington chimeres and Duvalierists to Haiti , exclusion of the masses, denial of democracy masked behind walls of disinformation and untruths. Haiti and Haiti's reconstruction is certainly not Haiti-led as trumpeted by the US State Department fact sheet on the Clinton-led IHRC.
In 2004, the Bush Administration used Kofi Annan/UN, Condi Rice and Colin Powell to peddle the US fake benevolence and "democracy" masking their re-colonization of Haiti. Now it's the surrogate "Black" president, Bill Clinton, who fulfills for Obama, the role Condi Rice and Colin Powell fulfilled in Haiti for the Bush Administration. The US forced Haiti into the UN proxy occupation of today through de-legitimizing the electoral process (in 1991 and in 2000 during the Aristide terms) when the vote brought to power the Haitian people's choice, not the US/World Bank/IMF choices.
Since the 2004 Bush regime change in Haiti, US large footprint in "poor?" Haiti keeps increasing. US Embassy in Haiti is the fifth largest US Embassy compound in the world, after Iraq, Afghanistan, China
The US, France and its allies, used their power to delegitimize or legitimize, at will, the electoral process in Haiti. With this power the US implemented their own macabre Wall Street interests against the human needs of the people of Haiti. Since the fall of the US-supported Duvalier dictatorship in 1986, the profit-over-people Internationals, led by the US, have systematically prevented grassroots democracy -- the one-person-one-vote principle - from taking root in Haiti.
The US and so-called International Community have not only created chaos, famine, insecurity, poverty and instability in Haiti through delegitimizing the electoral process but by funding NGOs instead of the Haiti government, by relentlessly pushing unfair trade, World Bank structural adjustment, export economy (sweatshops) ideologies, forced privatization of State assets, reduction of import tariffs and through forcing the democratically elected government to pay down illegitimate Duvalier dictatorship loans instead of investing these millions in Haiti's domestic health care, infrastructure, clean water and sanitation, agriculture/food sovereignty, housing, education and job creation.
But most notably, the US and to a lesser extent France and Canada helped destabilized, deprive, divide and take down Haiti's fledging process towards inclusion, economic development and democracy in 2004 through a massive propaganda war and vilification of the Lavalas Democratic Movement and by destabilizing and dividing Haiti's people through granting US visas, jobs, heavily funding -- [ through the National Endowment for Democracy (funded by the State Department) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) ] -- their lackeys, the anti-democratic forces, especially Duvalierist and their NGOs in opposition to the duly elected government supported through so-called "democracy enhancement" projects and humanitarian aid. It is well documented, that the Western policymakers abhor when the people of Haiti rule themselves and planned the ouster of Haiti's chosen popular leader (The Ottawa Initiative; Richard Morse said "It was a coup, I participated! I went to meetings in Washington" -; UN/MINUSTAH replaced the bloody Haitian army , says Richard Morse of the Oloffson Hotel, Haiti ; Matters for an International Tribunal to Investigate...; See also sidebar links and Notes 1-8, below.)
Recall, that on December 31, 2003, this author was there, in Haiti for the bicentennial in 2004, having a late meeting with Jafrikayiti who had Kevin Pina with him, when in the lobby of the Montana Hotel, Luigi Einaudi, the then Assistant Secretary General of the Organization of American States said to us that, "the problem with Haiti is that the international community is so screwed up, they are letting Haitians run Haiti." Then came the February 29, 2004 ouster of President Aristide by the US, France, Canada with the complicity of the OAS, UN and the Catholic Church. Today, Haiti is run by the US with the UN as military proxy fulfilling the old job of the Haitian army and is running Haiti, after the summary disenfranchisement of 10-million Haitians, the slaughter of Haiti's sovereignty, fledging democracy and tens of thousands of Haitian dissenters who, from 2004 to 2006 where all conveniently lumped together as "gangsters" in need of being eradicated by the UN/MINUSTAH "peacemakers." (It's Neither Hope nor Progress when the International Community is Running Haiti.)
Recall the Ottawa Initiative, the 2003 foreign gathering where foreign ministers of the Western powers met in Canada and indicated they saw Haiti as a "threat" to North American countries because Haiti might have, by some estimates, a population of 20 million by 2019.
Recall that Canadian foreign Minister, Dennis Paradis is reported to have said at this white gathering that the prospect of 20 million Haitians by 2019, is a "time bomb, which must be defused immediately. (For more "recall" items, see Note 6 below.)
The US not only helped fund, train and give logistic support to armed thugs, thieves, drug-dealers and convicted Haiti criminals in the Dominican Republic (giving them training within the Dominican Republic army itself in 2004) but denied Haiti humanitarian aid, loans and credit and on February 29, 2004, after US Special Forces had kidnapped Haiti's duly elected president deporting him to Africa, the US then brought in the UN/MINUSTAH mission as its proxy to "restore order." (See, Eyewitness account of the abduction of President and First Lady Aristide of Haiti by the United States Special Forces .)
(See UN, Uruguay and the Literal and Systematic Rape of Haiti. See, more links at Note 5 below)
After the January 12, 2010 earthquake especially, the command of the Brazilians of MINUSTAH was pushed aside, and the US government used former president Bill Clinton to further US strategic and commercial interests in Haiti through the murderous and depraved $860million UN/MINUSTAH mission and the mask of humanitarian aid. ( Why U.N./U.S. occupation of Haiti must end .)
The former president not only is the UN Special Envoy to Haiti, the co-chair of the IHRC but also directs the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative.
