If This Haitian Was Superstitious Like The Clintons

malè ou swete bèlmè, se manman ou li frape” – the evil you wish upon your mother-in-law strikes your mother, Haitian wisdom

The other day, I saw a video excerpt of an October 2012 speech in which Bill Clinton was telling an audience in New-York how his wife, Hillary, possesses the extraordinary psychic ability to speak regularly with the dead, in particular, with the spirit of former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.*

Today, some U.S. citizens who are still stunned by the election of Donald Trump may be seeking extra insights to help answer many troubling questions. However, I doubt the dead are in any way equipped to help them understand what is  happening in the so-called “land of the free and home of the brave“. If Harvard and Yale graduates could not see the Trump  train wreck coming, neither could the spirit of the dead help the Democratic Party and Clinton avoid this humiliating defeat they have just suffered at the hand of Donald “grab-them-by-the-pussy” Trump. Yet, a small group of New-York based Haitians had posted the writing on the wall, several months ago. The Haitians took their warning straight to Hillary Clinton’s headquarters in Manhattan. Unfortunately, few American citizens, from a population of 325 million, ever heard or saw – let alone welcomed – the prophetic message of KOMOKODA (the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti).

Had U.S. Democrats listened to KOMOKODA, they would have known long ago how election fixing (as happened in favour of Clinton and against Bernie Sanders) is a particular expertise of the Clinton clan. Ironically, in Haiti, Bill and Hillary Clinton’s electoral cheating was applied in favour of Michel “Sweet Micky” Martelly, a Caribbean-style Trump-like character who is infamous for his trademark “balls-grabbing” gestures. Below are some highlights on this peculiar Clinton-Trump/Martelly-Haiti story.
10452936_10152862522305631_8780484412312669995_o

Since KOMOKODA published the above track many years ago, there has been several investigative reports and Wikileaks which confirm their assertion that Hillary Clinton intervened personally in the 2010-11 Haitian elections to rig them in favour of Michel “Sweet Micky” Martelly. The latter went on to steal millions of dollars to enrich himself and his family over a five year presidency marked by scandalous debauchery by Haiti’s morally-repugnant 1%, while the Black majority continues to die whenever it rains on their environmentally-vulnerable third of island.

The Clintons profess great love for Martelly and it is reciprocal as, among other gifts, Martelly offered a very lucrative, once-in-a-century Haitian gold mining deal to Tony Rodham (Hillary’s brother) and his company CVS Mining.

Martelly who, while acting as “President of Haiti”, once yelled to a woman in the audience that she ought to join him “in the back bush, so he may do her”, was heralded by Bill Clinton as “Haiti’s most articulate leader of the past 30 years”. Slick Bill, apparently, has a very peculiar sense of humour. But, Haitians do not often laugh at his sick jokes.

Today, as Americans are trying to awake from the November 8, 2016 shock, many who are bemoaning the arrival of Trump and Melania to the White House may still not realize how lucky they, in fact, are. So, once again, rather than inviting our brothers and sisters to consult “Jesus” or to summon the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt we, Haitians, do encourage all Americans to courageously seek the answers to their questions in real life.

Dear neighbours, as bad as it is, your situation is still better than what it could have been.

  1. You had the luxury of electing your own bigoted, misogynist dictator. No foreign powers imposed him on you. He is yours, all yours. To do with, as you so please.
  2. You were fortunate to have uncovered the corruption that plagues the Democratic Party which rigged the elections in favor of the Clinton clan. Therefore, if you have the will and the courage to do so, you have here a perfect opportunity to discipline the guilty, abandon the 2 party oligarchy’s sham and adopt real democracy.
  3. Trump, unlike Haiti’s Sweet Micky, is already filthy rich before taking office. And, your beloved country can easily survive several days of rainfall at a time.

So, do not despair. Let the spirit of Eleonor Roosevelt rest in peace. However, as the Esquelito  character in Nacho Libre might have said in such circumstances: “I believe in science”. Although superstition is never the answer, there are natural laws of the universe such as “the evil you wish for mother-in-law shall surely strike your own mother“. *

“malè ou swete bèlmè, se manman ou li frape” – Haitian wisdom – from the same family of laws of science as “what goes around comes around”, “karma’s gonna get ya” etc…

Libya: From Africa’s Richest State Under Gaddafi, to Failed State After NATO Intervention
This article was first published on October 19, 2014. This week marks the three-year anniversary of the Western-backed assassination of Libya’s former president, Muammar Gaddafi, and the fall of one of Africa’s greatest nations. In 1967 Colonel Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; however, by the time he was assassinated, Gaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy on the continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands. After NATO’s intervention in 2011, Libya is now a failed state and its economy is in shambles. As ...

The US Aggression on Syria and the Principles of a “Just War”

A formal excuse for the aggression was based as many times before (from Vietnam, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya… cases) on traditional political false flags and mainstream media fake news used by the US propaganda machinery to sanction the Pentagon’s hegemonic policy of the Pax Americana.

How Kosovo Was Turned Into Fertile Ground For ISIS
PRISTINA, Kosovo — Every Friday, just yards from a statue of Bill Clinton with arm aloft in a cheery wave, hundreds of young bearded men make a show of kneeling to pray on the sidewalk outside an improvised mosque in a former furniture store. The mosque is one of scores built here with Saudi government money and blamed for spreading Wahhabism — the conservative ideology dominant in Saudi Arabia — in the 17 years since an American-led intervention wrested tiny Kosovo from Serbian oppression. Since then — much of that time under the watch of American officials — Saudi money and influence ...

One Hundred Years Ago, in the Spring of 1917: Why Did America Go to War in 1917?
1917 was not a good year for any of the belligerent countries, but for the members of the Entente – France, Britain, and Russia – it was nothing less than catastrophic. The main reasons for that were the mutinies in the French army, which made the situation on the western front extremely precarious, as well as the revolution in Russia, which raised the spectre of Russia exiting the war, leaving Britain and France bereft of the ally that forced Germany to fight on two fronts. Add to this the fact that civilians as well as soldiers in France and Britain ...

Five Times Corporate Media Got Caught Publishing “Fake News” Causing The Death And Suffering Of Millions
A now-notorious list of ostensibly “fake” news sites — created by a liberal professor, seemingly out of thin air — spread like wildfire online in the past two days and was eagerly reprinted by corporate media presstitutes hoping to vindicate their own failed reporting on the 2016 election. But branding perfectly legitimate outlets with the same scarlet letter as those devoid of integrity deemed the professor’s list a spurious attempt to defame alternative and independent media — anyone dissenting from the left’s mainstream narrative — as a whole. This is, in no uncertain terms, a hit list — or, at least, a laughable attempt — and ...

Ukraine Atrocities: The Illegal Use Of White Phosphorous Fire Bombs Against Donetsk Civilians
A report on August 15th from Russian Television alleged that the Ukrainian government that the U.S. installed in February of this year was resorting to internationally banned white phosphorous firebombs in order to help destroy the million people who lived in the now Ukrainian separatist capital of Donetsk. It lands super-hot and starts fires and burns to death almost anyone it touches. The Ukrainian separatists are the residents in Ukraine’s southeast, where Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian President, was elected overwhelmingly by the votes of the people in this region in 2010. They reject the government that Obama installed, and are therefore seeking independence from it. ...

“The Civilized World” Strikes Again: Donald Trump, a Complete Puppet of the Military Industrial Complex
It is apparent given the timelines and the lack of time given to verifying the validity of accusations concerning the gas attack in Homs, Syria, that plans had already been coordinated for such an attack. Watching the mainstream media the viewer receives the impression from the wording of the announcers reports and questions for the “experts” that the matter was already decided in favour of the U.S. military strike on the airbase. I see pictures of Colin Powell at the UN holding up glossy photos of supposed chemical weapons manufacturing plants. It demonstrates to a high degree how easily manipulated Trump ...

Native American Genocide
The term Genocide derives from the Latin (genos=race, tribe; cide=killing) and means literally the killing or murder of an entire tribe or people. The Oxford English Dictionary defines genocide as “the deliberate and systematic extermination of an ethnic or national group” and cites the first usage of the term as R. Lemkin, Axis Rule in Occupied Europe, (1944) p.79. “By ‘genocide’ we mean the destruction of a nation or an ethnic group.” The U.N. General Assembly adopted this term and defended it in 1946 as “….a denial of the right of existence of entire human groups.” Most people tend to associate ...

Ending NATO, a Monstrous Institution
Their anxiety about the future of NATO, recently on full display again when the American president was in Europe, could not be bettered as a measure of the incapacity of Europe’s top politicians to guide their continent and represent its populations. Through its provocations of Moscow, NATO systematically helps increase the risk of a military confrontation. By thus sabotaging its declared purpose of preserving collective security for the countries on either side of the Atlantic, it erases its fundamental reason for being and right to exist. Grasping these facts ought be enough to fuel moves aimed at quickly doing away with ...

The newspaper added that the right wing has chosen this time for the move ahead of the US presidential election; America, it is believed, will be too preoccupied to care about what is happening in the occupied Palestinian territories.

America’s Recent Achievements In The Middle East

Since Barack Obama came into the White House, the operations — Libya, Yemen, and Syria — have been, to a large extent, joint operations with the Sauds. ‘We’ are now working more closely with ‘our’ ‘friends’, even than ‘we’ were under George W.
