TIME - Wyclef Jean: Haiti Should Evacuate Capital – Wyclef Jean, a man who is already embroiled in his own chairty corruption scandal, has come back from Haiti singing the globalist songs fed to him by Clintonistas. He is calling for “more security” in Haiti as well as the internment of over 2 million poor Haitians in “camps” outside of the capital. In other words, get those poor people stuck in refugee camps so that the government can bulldoze their homes (destroyed or not) and then build condos and hotel chains on the property. Fuck Wyclef Jean; a man who used money donated to his Haiti organization to create and fund his own recording studios. What a piece of shit.
Democracy Now -Doctor: Misinformation and Racism Have Frozen Recovery Effort at General Hospital in Port Au Prince - “There are no security issues,” says Dr. Evan Lyon of Partners in Health reports from the General Hospital in Port-Au-Prince in Haiti where 1,000 people are in need of operations. Lyon said the reports of violence in the city have been overblown by the media and have affected the delivery of aid and medical services.” (As I said before, fuck Wyclef Jean, a man who has made a career of ripping off the people of Haiti.)
Democracy Now – U.S. Accused of Militarizing Relief Effort in Haiti - ”The people of Haiti at this point have seen little aid, but what they have seen so far is guns… and lots of them.” “UN Peacekeepers aren’t here to help pull people out of the rubble they say, they say they are here to enforce the law.”
Washington Post – Haiti’s elite spared from much of the devastation – “There is an extreme, almost feudal divide between rich and poor in Haiti. The gated and privately guarded neighborhoods resemble a Haitian version of Beverly Hills, but with razor wire.”
Global Research – Haiti: An Unwelcome Katrina Redux – “President Obama’s response to the tragedy in Haiti has been robust in military deployment and puny in what the Haitians need most: food; first responders and their specialized equipment; doctors and medical facilities and equipment; and engineers, heavy equipment, and heavy movers. Sadly, President Obama is dispatching Presidents Bush and Clinton, and thousands of Marines and U.S. soldiers. By contrast, Cuba has over 400 doctors on the ground and is sending in more;”
Washington Post – FBI broke law for years in phone record searches “The FBI illegally collected more than 2,000 U.S. telephone call records between 2002 and 2006 by invoking terrorism emergencies that did not exist or simply persuading phone companies to provide records, according to internal bureau memos and interviews. FBI officials issued approvals after the fact to justify their actions.”
Truthdig – Face the Nation video with Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. “My mother calls him my fourth brother.” G.W. Bush. For years the “conspiracy theorists” have been saying that there was a very close relationship between the Bushs and the Clintons that went well beyond their political connections. In this interview, George W. Bush admits he would call the former president “often” during his 8 years in the White House.
AntiWar -Gitmo ‘Suicides’ Linked to Black Site Cover-Up “Though the official story has the three men hanging themselves in their cells as part of a plot to wage “assymetric warfare” on the United States by dying, the report suggests that the men may have actually died well outside the prison complex, at a secret CIA “black site” known colloquially as “Camp No.”
Prison Planet -PDD 51 and New Executive Order Gives Obama Dictator Power - ”The new order, which is entitled Establishment of the Council of Governors (PDF), creates a body of ten state governors directly appointed by Obama who will work with the federal government to help advance the “synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States”.
