Bill, Hillary and the Haiti Debacle
Wall Street Journal, by Mary Anastasia O´Grady

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/19/2014 5:33:51 AM

The news website Tout Haiti reported last month that two prominent lawyers have petitioned Haiti´s Superior Court of Auditors and Administrative Disputes, demanding an audit of Bill Clinton´s management of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC). There are powerful interests that won´t want to see the petition succeed and it may go nowhere. But the sentiment it expresses is spreading fast. In the immortal words of Charlie Brown, Mr. Clinton has gone from hero to goat. Four years after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake toppled the capital city of Port-au-Prince and heavily damaged other parts of the country, hundreds of millions of

A timely question - are the people of that island better off today than they were 5 years ago, and if not - why not?

I´m sure whatever was left AFTER Bubba and The Beast skimmed their share was equally divided between corrupt folks in Haiti. Those two grifters run a better skim than Lefty Rosenthal/Ace Rothstein at the Stardust/Tangiers in "Casino".

C´mon, really??? History has shown us that Bill Clinton was nothing more than a draft-dodging, tax-evading, dope-smoking, pants-dropping, wife-cheating liar, rapist and thief, who was convicted of perjury, impeached and disbarred. His actions as a low-life bicycle seat-sniffing trailer park troll dragged our nation´s morality down to the level of an Arkansas outhouse while traveling around the world personally cashing in on the selling of the Presidency of the United States of America. No other President (and first Screetching Basilisk) in the history of this country has left so many real, tangible victims in the wake of their dishonest con games taking advantage of the over-taxed paying public with scams like Whitewater, Castle Grande, Madison Guarantee, Cattle Futures, Pardons for criminals, ChiCom infusions of under the table cash, Charlie Trie, the Riadies, Rich, Sandy (the thief) Berger not to mention the most convictions and guilty pleas, the most Cabinet officials ever to come under criminal investigation.
Anyone who wonders why he would go to Haiti and take advantage of a bad situation is not playing with a full deck, or go the short end of the gravy train, and is completely oblivious to the fact that the Clinton´s dishonesty is only exceeded by their unbridled greed!

We learn $6 Billion missing from the State Dept. and earlier saw millions of dollars raised for the Clinton Foundation are unaccounted for, and now this. And just last week in a drunken rant Slick Willy brags that the "far right wing extremists" that found Whitewater never apologized because no one (other than the 15 people who went to jail) did anything wrong! What more do people need? She is the presumptive next President?

Quite a timely question #12. Although Hillary was too concussed to testify about Benghazi, she was apparently OK to travel to Punta Cana, Dominican to celebrate New Year´s Eve. CNN reported that "doctors have grounded her from overseas travel for several more weeks." although CNN made no mention of the trip to the Dominican Republic.
Wonder if we can find images of her down there with her special head trauma glasses?

No question the grifters are guilty as charged but it was the perfect coup for the type of sub-humans the grifters are because you can´t really help the un-helpable. That´s the biggest problem in Haiti.

Q: How, in the name of the late "Papa Doc" Duvalier, could something like this ever happen in The Republic of Haiti?

A: How were ´Bonnie & Clyde" Clinton, at one time two relatively unknown small-time hoodlums from deep in Arkansas´s Ozark Woods, able to amass a combined present-day fortune now estimated in excess of $101,500,000.00, in just over twenty-two years?

The Clinton´s greedy default position is, like most liberals, to get their hands on as much of other people´s money as possible.

Much of America hasn´t forgotten all the things the Clintons removed from the White House after they left.

Haiti has always been a cesspool and the Clintons have only made things worse, which by now should clue in Democrats that throwing money at people in return for nothing is not a good idea.

When have any democrats actually fixed what they were tasked to do? They are incapable of doing what needs to be done because they have never done a days work in their lives. You have to understand the concept of hiring the most competent people for the job. You have to understand hard work, logistics, budgets, and scheduling. Most of all you have to understand the concept of integrity. These are foreign concepts to most politicians. They understand money under the table, cronyism, little oversight and no accountability. Put men like General Honore in charge of oversight on these projects and I guarantee results. It is all about integrity, results and accountability.

Just waiting for all the outraged celebrities to take to YouTube to rant about this debacle. Surely, they will claim that the negligence and incompetence has been purposeful as it is obviously racist (and, it is). I´m sure that George Clooney, Sean Penn, and Wyclef Jean will be making the media rounds to raise awareness about the continuing need down there.

Perhaps the Haitians should tweet out: #GiveUsBackOurFunds #Rebuild Haiti

WSH´s Mary Anastasia O´Grady !! A new name truth teller to reckon with! And UNO above, recites the most correct Bill
Slick Willie reminder. Another scandal is heard from.

The shocking news is really starting to break out at a new, high speed, at such a speedy rate, that the god like Sawyers,
Pelleys and Williams are going to look foolish, stupid and evil simply by their continued silence while this avalanche of corruptions increases to reach the public on FoxTV and all the amazing HONEST news sources that now seem to be everywhere.
Back in the Slick Willie Clinton Criminal Days, WSJ published TWO BIG PAPERBACK BOOKS, with the titles of WHITEWATER (representing one of many major Bill and Hillary scandals). WSJ has always been there for truth.

And now this new lovely name of O´Grady. The truth army is building!

And this is a preview of America if these Grifters are allowed back into the WH.
Why did the Bushes throw Clinton a life raft for " humanitarian causes"/s when he left WH in disgrace?

Imagine what a legacy Bill Clinton would have left behind if he really took charge of reclaiming this desperately poor country. With all the monies they were provided with, he could have done a complete turnaround with new schools (maybe cinder block but sturdy) and housing, health clinics and infrastructure. I´m sure most of the children there don´t have clean water to drink and indoor plumbing, and they had the kind of money which could have done it all and done it right, and he walked away. What a waste.

Those poor fools in Haiti, they actually thought the money was for THEM. It would be such poetic justice to see both of the Clintons spend their twilight years in jail and Chelsea deprived of her ill-gotten inheritance. I know, just a dream. After eight years of Obama hell, I would not be at all surprised if the PIAPS makes it into the White House.

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Jose Antonio Vargas and

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
