    Default Clinton Cash book and Haiti

    If google is to be believed, it seems the famous "Clinton Cash" book has not been discussed in this site.

    One chapter is dedicated entirely to Haiti.

    This article summarizes this chapter in Spanish.

    You could try google translate or similar, if you cannot read Spanish. For example, you'd get something like:

    ========================

    The book consists of ten chapters, an epilogue. Below we will try to summarize what we understood the tenth chapter, entitled "Disaster Capitalism Clinton style: 2010 effort to relieve Haiti."

    On January 12, 2010 an earthquake of magnitude 7.0 on the Richter scale struck Haiti. Although such magnitude is relatively moderate, the earthquake had devastating effects on paupérrimamente built Haitian infrastructure, resulting in the deaths of more than a quarter of a million people, and the destruction of some 25,000 government commercial buildings or, and 100 thousand homes, leaving a million and a half people outdoors (by way of comparison, only weeks later in Chile it was an earthquake of magnitude 8.8 - which means five hundred times stronger than Haiti - and killed at least six hundred people) .

    Soon it was established the Interim Committee for the Haitian Relief (IHRC for short) under the co-direction of Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive and former President Clinton, who since 2009 served as special envoy of Nations United in Haiti.

    The IHRC was the important objective of reviewing the possible reconstruction projects and decide which ones would receive funding. According to the Public Accounting Office of the US, or GAO (the "Chamber of Accounts" US) IHRC functions included "coordinating donations, conduct strategic planning, approving reconstruction projects and provide accounting responsibility."

    The power of former President Clinton in the reconstruction of Haiti and the distribution of US funds was so massive that many called him the "viceroy" of Haiti. This power was evident when one of his closest personal assistants, Gary Conille, was named Haitian Premier.

    However, as expressed by the Economist, the mixture of papers of Bill Clinton as co-director of the reconstruction committee, special UN, former US president, husband of then chancellor of USA (now pre-candidate sent presidential), and president of a foundation in turn involved in reconstruction projects made it impossible to know what interests they defended, and who was subordinate.

    Unfortunately, after spending billions of dollars of US taxpayers, although some roads are in much better shape, and a lot of debris has been removed, the reconstruction of Haiti under the leadership of the Clintons has been a resounding and huge failure.

    According to the GAO, the IHRC ignored the action plan and priorities for the distribution of funds as had established the Haitian authorities and the donor countries. This resulted in the waste of a lot of money on useless projects. At the same time, friends, allies and even relatives of the Clintons have benefited financially from the failed reconstruction.

    Etc., etc.

    If Clinton wins buy all the gold you can get your hands on as fast as you can, because the U.S. will be going down and the dollar will be inflated to cover all the debt run up. If elected, she will go down as the worst President in U.S. History with Obama a close second. I was in Port a Prince two years ago and it was an absolute disaster, this after billions and billions of dollars of supposed help. I totally believe this report as I saw evidence of it with my own eyes...

    "Progressives" are the most corrupt, its well known.. The Left makes its living off of "class warfare" politics, "victimization politics" The left constantly cries "foul", yet its these progressives that are the reason the World is in such bad shape today, financially.
    And the Clinton's are one of the best at hiding left wing corruption in Haiti.

    "Hillary Clinton says that when she and her husband moved out of the White House 15 years ago, they were “dead broke.” Today, they’re worth more than $150 million.

    In the new documentary “Clinton Cash,” it becomes all too clear how the former first couple went from rags to filthy rich — with the emphasis on filthy.

    As the movie shows, the Clintons are political Teflon dons compared with another Beltway power couple, former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen.

    The McDonnells were convicted of accepting more than $150,000 in gifts from a businessman while the governor was in office. Meanwhile, the Clintons raked in 700 times that amount — $105 million — under the pretext of speaking fees while Hillary was in public office.

    Yet while the McDonnells face time in the Big House, the Clintons are once again aiming for the White House.

    The documentary is based on a book by former Hoover Institution fellow Peter Schweizer and was just screened during the Cannes Film Festival. It is set to be shown in major US cities, including Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention there in July."
