Mercenaries, Arms, and Our Men in Haiti Our average news consumer knows much about current arguments for and against regime change in Venezuela and Syria. Conversely, when told that on February 17 eight mercenaries were arrested in Haiti with assault weapons, pistols, drones, several different license plates, and sophisticated satellite communication equipment, the same people will express complete disbelief.

The Stories People Tell About Abortion The stories we tell offer anecdotal evidence of the moral, emotional and sociological damages of abortion. Evidence-based medicine offers scientific reasons to expose political machinations as misleading and dangerous. More importantly, injecting politics into life and death decisions puts our spiritual identity at grave risk, no matter how the stories are framed.

Will Nikki Haley's Tears Flow into a River of Compassion for Congo? We can only hope that the recent bloody news from Goma, combined with Haley's emotional visit to the Mungote Camp in Kitchanga, translates into a river of compassion. News reports in the US mainstream focused on Haley's difficult visit with rape survivors and her first-hand look at the atrocious conditions in an IDP camp of 15,000 located 100 kilometers (60 miles) north of Goma.

Did Murdered U.N. Expert Unknowingly Tell Her Killers How to Find Her? The orders to kill villagers in Febraury came from high up the chain of command, and by his denials and blame directed at a "roughly edited" videotape, DRC spokesman Lambert Mende was introducing the possibility of culpability. Did Mende videotape and stage the killings of the UN experts.

While major media satellite trucks were lining up at the Highway 1806 entrance to Oceti Sakowin in Morton County in anticipation of the arrival of thousands of veterans on December 4, something was happening just a two-hours drive to the south.

Did Trump's Visit to Little Haiti Help Him Win Florida? It would be a denouement dripping with irony if voter analysis indicates that the Haitian/American electorate removed the shackles from closet Trump-leaning supporters in a Florida election. The verdict is still out, but it certainly appears possible that Haitians may have achieved some payback for an election rigged by Cheryl Mills and the Clinton State Department.
