From a Townhall.com article by Colorado journalist and author Joy Overbeck:
The group of Haitians demonstrating on the sidewalk at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia were furious with Bill and Hillary Clinton. A passionate Haitian-American named Joseph Mathieu frankly accused the couple of “destroying Haiti for the decades. They pretend to be our friends when in reality they are our number one enemies…the Clintons were running Haiti, stealing our money, our resources and we are out here, outraged for the crimes of the Clintons!”
Then Mathieu labeled the international power couple racists: “The Clintons don’t like black people,” he thundered. “All they do is more welfare, more jails, more food stamps — we don’t need that, we need more opportunity, more education!”
They have good reason to wave their “Hillary! Where Is the MONEY?” signs. Following the horrific 2010 earthquake that devastated the island nation, killing over 200,000 and leaving over 1.5 million people homeless, some 9 billion dollars in pledges and aid flowed in from sympathetic individuals, nations, and charities for the rebuilding. The Clintons together became the royal arbiters in charge of just how and where this vast treasury would be spent. Dubbed “The King and Queen of Haiti” in a Politico piece, like medieval rulers of yore, their majesties doled out favors to their loyal courtiers and nobles. In the case of Haiti, the nobles were the Clintons’ millionaire pals and relatives, and the favors amounted to billions in grants and contracts bestowed on them.
Those billions intended to rebuild the ruined nation instead disappeared into fantasy houses and roads that were never built, jobs that were never created, a national revival that never happened, and often private bank accounts never traceable. And a company with Tony Rodham, Hillary’s brother, on the board, somehow scored a lucrative 25-year gold mining deal.
Haiti is important because its colossal need and its suffering people gave Bill and Hillary a shining test case to demonstrate how much they love the less fortunate, to be the do-gooders they always claim to be. After all, for decades Hillary has insisted that her life’s work has been improving the lives of the poor and oppressed all over the globe.
We can learn much from the Clinton’s Haiti fiasco , only a sliver of which I have covered here. When they say they will bring jobs and prosperity because they care so much about us — that’s exactly what they told the Haitians. When Hillary brags about her managerial skills, her experience as a leader, and her competence at improving peoples’ lives, think of how those leadership and decision-making skills improved the lives of Haitians, most of whom are still living in makeshift plastic tents, jobless.
If the Clintons couldn’t make their promises come true in a tiny country with a few million population and $9 billion to spend, how could they even come close in a huge America of over 300 million?
Here is Haitian-American demonstrator Joseph Mathieu‘s warning, “What have the Clintons done with the foundation? Just enriched themselves, stealing! We cannot allow liar Hillary to be president — there is no justice anymore because American justice is crooked!”
If evidence does indeed exist that will stick as irrefutable proof of criminal wrongdoing by the Clintons — and which they won’t be able to explain away — it will probably be among stuff relating to the Haiti fiasco.
And no doubt investigators are busy searching for such evidence as we speak.
