If this Haitian was Superstitious Like the Clintons

Hits: 789

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.

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…

M pa ka ri…pa kwè m ri…lè m ri ou wè dan m, ou pa wè anndan m”

(I cannot laugh… don’t you believe I am laughing – when I laugh, my teeth you do see, but not my soul) – song by Beethova Obas

The Legacy of Slobodan Milosevic
Slobodan Milosevic was faced with an extremely serious and deadly situation in the 1990s. Indeed, that applied to all Serbs at that time in the Balkans, and still does to this very day. Mr Milosevic was up against the West, led by America and followed by the European Union. After realising that the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia could not be saved, Milosevic did everything he could to safeguard the newly created Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and protect Serbs living in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo and Metohija. And because of that, the West imposed crippling and merciless sanctions on the ...

Hillary Comes Out as the War Party Candidate
On June 2 (2016), a few days before the California primary, Hillary Clinton gave up trying to compete with Bernie Sanders on domestic policy. Instead, she zeroed in on the soft target of Donald Trump’s most “bizarre rants” in order to present herself as experienced and reasonable. Evidently taking her Democratic Party nomination for granted, she is positioning herself as the perfect candidate for hawkish Republicans. Choosing to speak in San Diego, home base of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, on a platform draped with 19 American flags and preceded by half an hour of military marching music, Hillary Clinton was certain ...

World Conquest: The United States’ Global Military Crusade since 1945
GR Editor’s Note The following article by professor Eric Waddell was first published twelve years ago by Global Research in December 2003 in the immediate wake of the invasion and occupation of  Iraq by US and British forces, with a postscript added in 2007.  The article provides an incisive historical perspective on America’s “long war” against humanity, which is being carried out under a fake humanitarian mandate. Let us be under no illusions as to the intent of the US and its allies. We are dealing with World Conquest under the disguise of a “Global War on Terrorism”.  Michel Chossudovsky, December 24, ...

International Law? The Americans don’t give a Damn
The United States of America has sunk to a new low in diplomacy and civilized relations between nation states with its demand that Russia close its consular missions in San Francisco, Washington and New York, quickly followed by its order that the consular staff leave the premises while the FBI conducted a search of the premises and staffers personal apartments. To order the closure of a mission, or to order the withdrawal of a member of diplomatic staff, is within its right but a search of consular property is not. It is a flagrant violation of the Vienna Convention on ...

The Forgotten Postwar US-Nazi Alliance
As the Second World War advanced from its early stages, the United States was assessing which sections of the earth it would hold conquest over. American planners had to remain patient, however. A seemingly endless string of conquests for the Nazis had astonished the world – particularly those in the US – and led to Adolf Hitler being crowned as “the new Napoleon”. In the summer of 1942, under Hitler’s domineering command of the military, the Germans controlled vast swathes of Europe – from Warsaw to Oslo to Paris, and eastwards onto Athens, Kiev and Sevastopol. It was one major victory ...

Kosovo and Crimea: What’s the Difference?
The only discussion of principle emerging from the debates over Kosovar and Crimean independence is that initiated by Woodrow Wilson towards the end of World War One, about whether national minorities have the right to self-determination. Can a smaller group be compelled to be part of a larger state, or should they be permitted to secede? To what extent do minority rights amount to a freedom to determine one’s own sovereignty? In June 1999 an international military force led by the United States annexed Kosovo, then a province in southern Serbia with a population of perhaps 1.6 million people. Virtually all ...

U.S Military Bases Worldwide: 682 Military Bases in 63 Countries
The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists — Ernest Hemingway Military spending is the second largest item in the US federal budget after Social Security. It has a habit of increasing significantly each year, and the proposed 2019 defense budget is $886 billion (roughly double what it was in 2003). US military spending exceeds the total of the next ten largest countries combined. Although the US government acknowledges 682 military bases in 63 countries, ...

It is worth noting that 6 out of these 7 countries (with the exception of Lebanon) identified by General Wesley Clark “to be taken out” are now the object of President Trump’s ban on Muslims’ entry to the US:  Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, Iran and Yemen. All of these countries are on the Pentagon’s drawing board. These countries have been directly or indirectly been the object of US aggression (Global Research Editor). General Wesley Clark.

The Myth of Hiroshima
With rare exception, the question of whether the atomic bombs were necessary to end World War Two is debated only deep within the safety of academic circles. Could a land invasion have been otherwise avoided? Would more diplomacy have achieved the same ends without the destruction of two cities? Could an atomic test on a deserted island have convinced the Japanese? Was the surrender instead driven primarily by the entry of the Soviets into the Pacific War, which, by historical accident, took place two days after Hiroshima—and the day before Nagasaki was immolated? But it is not only the history of the ...

NATO’s War Crimes: The Crime of Propaganda
The NATO military alliance is a world encompassing threat. It is now conducting various forms of hybrid warfare against Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and most of Africa. They have destroyed directly or are largely responsible for the destruction of the socialist nations of the USSR, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and too many to name in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Destruction is the fate that each nation on earth can expect unless it pays homage and obeisance to these neo-feudal overlords who promise protection in return for national servitude, in return for the complete ...

Remembering Edward Herman: Explains the Role of Media Propaganda in Justifying War
On November 11, distinguished scholar, political economist, media analyst/critic, peace champion Ed Herman passed away at age 92. It was fittingly on the 99th anniversary of WW I’s end. Endless wars followed “the war to end all wars” – a legacy of mass slaughter and destruction Herman deplored, championing elusive world peace. Along with his friends and family, I mourn his passing, a valued friend and colleague, a contributor to my 2014 book, titled “Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III.” He and other distinguished contributors made the book successful, published in Russia and France.

Memorial Day is Based on a Lie

It is a message that will be heard in sporting events, memorial services, airports, churches, and everywhere else that Memorial Day is being commemorated. There is one big thing wrong, however. It’s a lie. None of those soldiers died protecting our rights and freedoms. That’s because our rights and freedoms were never being threatened by the enemy forces that killed those soldiers.

The Refugee Crisis and the New Holocaust
The world has suddenly realised that there is a “refugee crisis”. There are more refugees now than at any time since World War II. The number has grown three-fold since the end of 2001. The problem is treated as if it arose just recently, but it has been a long time coming. The pressure has been building and building until it has burst the dams of wilful ignorance. Death and despair has migrated to the doorsteps of Europe. But tens of millions of people do not simply abandon home and native land for an insecure dangerous future of desperate struggle. The ...
