Aid to Haiti Boomeranged Back to US

Study Finds Haiti Aid Largely Went to US Groups

A new report on American aid to Haiti in the wake of that country’s devastating earthquake finds much of the money went to U.S.-based companies and organizations.

The Center for Economic and Policy Research analyzed the $1.15 billion pledged after the January 2010 quake and found that the “vast majority” of the money it could follow went straight to U.S. companies or organizations, more than half in the Washington area alone.

Just 1 percent went directly to Haitian companies. . . . (more)

RSOE – Complex Emergency in Haiti

The United Nations said Tuesday that a growing number of people in Haiti are not getting enough to eat following a heavy storm season that damaged food crops. The humanitarian department of the U.N. mission in the Caribbean nation of 10 million people said in its monthly bulletin that a spike in malnutrition has been recorded in some areas since October. At least one in five households faces a serious food deficit and acute malnutrition despite efforts to reduce hunger, the study said. Malnutrition is worst in Haiti’s far western corner in the administrative department of Grande-Anse, the U.N. said. There have also been reports of acute malnutrition in southeastern Haiti. Widespread flooding damaged crops in the country’s south when Hurricane Sandy and Tropical Storm Isaac brushed Haiti last year. The U.N. said that more than more than 1.5 million of Haiti’s people are at risk of malnutrition because of crops lost in the hurricane. As much as 90 per cent of Haiti’s harvest season, much of it in the south, was destroyed in Sandy’s floods.

Citigroup’s Role in the Rape of Haiti

From Uruknet

It’s a story marked by military intervention, violations of national sovereignty and the deaths of thousands.”

by Peter James Hudson

[snip] . . . , [National City Bank of New York lobbiest] Farnham and National City worked to destabilize the Haitian government. They refused to pay government salaries over the summer, and in December they ordered the transfer of $500,000 of the republic’s gold reserves to National City’s vaults at 55 Wall St. The gold was packed up by U.S. Marines, marched to Port-au-Prince’s wharfs and shipped aboard the USS Machias to New York.


The bank argued that they owned the gold contractually and were bound to protect it from possible theft. The Haitians saw it as robbery, pure and simple, and indicative of a growing threat to the republic’s sovereignty.


Threat turned to fact on July 28, 1915. On that day, U.S. Marines landed in Haiti and initiated a period of military rule that would last 19 years. The immediate justifications for intervention included fears of encroaching German influence and a desire to protect American life and property – especially after a spate of factional violence that included the dismemberment of the Haitian president in response to a massacre of his political opponents.  . . .

The unusually focused ‘earthquake’ in Haiti seems remarkably spot on for destroying the government there.  It seems eerily similar to this bit I just read on

America was understandably most eager to hide the means by which it had wrought these disasters, what it had achieved by them, and the massive collateral destruction which had resulted in a most false, self-serving way to its biggest global challenger and its most self-assured ally. Beijing wanted a similar cover up to hide the process by which it had opened itself up to this most damaging strategic setback to its nuclear deterrent, the personnel responsible for making them, and the means of delivering them at the hands of the Americans, one whose consequences would plague the regime for years to come. The Burmese junta had been taught that its insulated relationship with China was a two-way street which could result in terrible consequences, and leave it with no recourse if it or its patrons stepped unduly on the toes of America’s empire.

Washington was eager to portray the cyclone and earthquake as simply natural disasters which neither Myanmar nor Beijing had properly anticipated and prepared for – unlike what Bangladesh and Thailand had down in the wake of Indian Ocean tsunamis, and Iran had done after the 1990, 2003 and 2006 earthquakes. The Bush administration concentrated on reporting the thousands of children killed in the disasters, especially those 8,000 or so killed when eight schools around Mianyang were simply crushed by falling rock. There was no account of the 80,000 others who died when their offices, living quarters, testing laboratories, nuclear manufacturing and storage plants, rocket launching sites, etc., were simply swallowed up or smashed in the ensuing collapse of the whole area. And these were among the most skilled people China had in making, testing and producing its strategic arms, the core of its whole defense establishment….(more)

Also it seems incredible that the US media ignores the prior US invasions of Haiti and the huge debt Haiti still pays for those illegal acts. Invasions, massacres, embargoes and election rigging are all absent in the “reporting” on Haiti.

Are they that sick? Did U.S. weather weapon destroy Haiti?

Immediately following the “earthquake” that hit Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010, I started seeing reports that the earthquake was not a random occurrence or happenstance. These were the same rumblings I heard following Hurricane Katrina.

After the devastation of Katrina I started seeing reports about HAARP, High Frequency Active Auroral Research. I did some research and discovered HAARP is an extremely high frequency radio transmitter military operation located in Alaska and Puerto Rico. HAARP is a military project both the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force have signed on to for conducting experiments and tests using high frequency electromagnetic waves. . . (more)
