Haiti's Saviors

The same elites that have made life a hell, who else?

Readers, this article is a disgusting piece of happy horses***; however, it DOES SHOW YOU WHO the PAPERS WORK for and it is NOT YOU, readers.

"Much rests on Haiti elite; Stung by losses, the wealthy consider fleeing or rebuilding" by Maria Sacchetti, Globe Staff | January 31, 2010

PETIONVILLE, Haiti - Days after the powerful earthquake, the wide-screen TVs still flashed inside the exclusive walled estates high on a verdant hill in this suburb. Servants poured espresso into fine china, delivered glasses of water on silver trays, and tapped cupboards filled with enough vegetables and pasta to last for weeks.

Translation: The elite rulers were not touched by this catastrophe.

The eerie calm contrasted sharply with the devastation a few miles below in Port-au-Prince, a hot, dusty swath of collapsed buildings where hundreds of people scoured the rubble for food or gulped water from busted pipes.

Though the 7.0-magnitude quake left the rich and the poor mourning the dead, the cavernous gap in incomes in Haiti is even more pronounced in the aftermath. In the frantic days after the Jan. 12 quake, the wealthy spirited their loved ones overseas in private planes, sought refuge in armed compounds powered by generators, and even ordered pizza and surfed the Internet.

Oh, Lord, while ALL THOSE PEOPLE are WAITING for HELP!!!!!

The question now is whether the wealthy elite that controls the bulk of the economy will help rebuild Haiti and create a thriving middle class.

Why would they (unless there was a buck in it for them)?


Eighty percent of Haitians live in poverty, while a handful of often light-skinned descendants of the French, who ruled the country’s coffee and sugar slave plantations until Haiti declared independence in 1804, and other groups control most of the wealth.


The yawning gap has come at a cost for all groups. Many wealthy are prisoners in their own homes, traveling with armed guards and living in constant fear of kidnappings for ransom.

Oh, the POOR RICH F***S, can you BELIEVE IT????

At least they HAVE a HOME (with Internet and pizza)!!

Go try LIVING in a TENT and SLEEPING OUTSIDE before you LOSE YOUR HEADS, shitters!!!

Oh, man, is this ever BAD, BAD "journalism!"

Meanwhile, impoverished Haitians subsist in tin-roofed huts, with vast unemployment and, according to the World Bank, one of the lowest life expectancies - age 60 - in the Western Hemisphere. Only 56 percent of adults can read and write, according to the State Department. Public education is technically free, but parents have to pay for uniforms and supplies, making it unaffordable. Ninety percent of primary schools are privately run. Barely 20 percent of secondary school-age children attend school.

You know, with all the GLOBALIST LOVE and ATTENTION all these years, WTF?

The walled estates in the high hills above downtown Petionville reflect the divide. Petionville sustained collapsed buildings and numerous deaths, and had residents sleeping on the street. But looting was not apparent and the destruction was far less pronounced than in the capital. In the quiet hills above the city, destruction was even less widespread, perhaps because of the location or better-built housing. Near the top of one hill, the owners of a lemon-colored villa had a stockpile of fresh water and tomato sauce, plus three generators. The family’s servants said the residents had decamped to the United States almost immediately after the earthquake.

A few streets away, Abraham Farrah, a 72-year-old businessman, hunkered down in his white-walled compound, guarded by armed men. Framed art hung on the walls, news blared on the television, and a servant brought cups of coffee on a tray. The self-made businessman, who followed his father from Syria to Haiti when he was 18, said both of his supermarkets in Port-au-Prince collapsed in the quake. “I lost everything ,’’said Farrah, a gentle, white-haired man who wore a T-shirt emblazoned with a picture of his grandson. “I worked for 50 years and in one second I lost everything.’’

Welcome to life in Haiti for the other 80%.


Farrah said he misses the Duvaliers, the father and son who ruled Haiti for 29 years in brutal dictatorships. For him, though, life was safer. “Under Duvalier we had security,’’ he said. “You could go out at anytime and come back anytime you wanted.’’



Even the Caribbean Supermarket on a busy street in Petionville was a fortress; the parking lot was hidden behind soaring concrete walls topped with barbed wire, and protected by armed guards from a bulletproof tower. The four-story building collapsed in the earthquake.

Now the wealthy are mulling whether to rebuild. Farrah was unsure. He said his son opened a factory in the neighboring Dominican Republic because of Haiti’s instability....

Since the earthquake, some say, promising signs of cooperation between the rich and the poor have emerged....


The Petionville Club allowed the US Army’s 82d Airborne Division to set up relief efforts, dominating everything from the golf course to the tennis courts.

Oh, the Glob reporter is AT the U.S. BASE!!!

But the country club president, who is white, spoke sharply to some waiters, according to a translator. The staff gathered at the front door daily, hoping to go back to work, and said the club president did not respond to them.

Across the courtyard at the club, Nelly Boyer and her husband, Jean Claude, said they hoped the reconstruction would take Haiti in a different direction.

“We have to erase the blackboard and we have to start all over again with compassion, love, and to help each other,’’ said Boyer, a business professor at Quisqueya University, who was there to volunteer for the 82d Airborne....

Something ORWELLIAN there that I just can't put my finger on.



The HAITIANS TOSSED those f***s before and they will DO IT AGAIN -- no matter what
some propaganda outfit says!

Then again, THAT is what FILLS your SUNDAY GLOB, readers!

"Keeping up a united front for hope; US soldiers, refugees part of aid effort" by Brian MacQuarrie, Globe Staff | January 31, 2010

PETIONVILLE, Haiti - Evans Cybrien and his sister Marie managed to smile. They had just been given enough rice, beans, flour, and cooking oil to last a month, as part of a cooperative emergency effort by Catholic Relief Services and the US Army’s 82d Airborne Division.

The Cybriens were the latest beneficiaries of a five-day whirlwind effort to funnel food to tens of thousands of people who have turned one of Haiti’s most affluent country clubs into a place of shocking misery. Although there are an estimated 50,000 refugees in the camp by day, that number is thought to double at night, when tens of thousands of the displaced return from an arduous and often unfruitful search for jobs and money in the capital of Port-au-Prince.

This is humanitarian assistance at its most elementary, the delivery of basic staples to a people who otherwise might starve in the flimsy, unpoliced city they have built for themselves. And it’s an example of rudimentary adaptability by an aid group, the Army, and refugee leaders who have devised a striking, simple way to deliver that assistance. Helicopters made the green grounds of The Petionville Club - complete with golf course, handball courts, pool, and patio bar - the busiest landing zone in Haiti, outside of the airport. The aircraft have delivered 240 metric tons of food to the club, set on a hilltop with a spectacular view of the city, harbor, and nearby mountains....

Yup, it's all a GRAND SUCCESS -- and I CAN'T STAND IT ANYMORE, readers, sorry!!!

Catholic Relief Services, which provided the food, sent workers from tent to tent in the camp, handing color-coded tickets to female heads of households in an exhaustive, expansive effort to ensure that aid is fairly distributed. It’s a system that appears to have cut down on fraud and paced the effort, color by color, over five days this week.


That's why we are beat over the head with pedophile priests in the newspapers!

Also the fact that CATHOLIC POWER can STAND AGAINST THEM if need be!!!!

Therefore they are a THREAT that must be CHECKED by the TOOLS of POWER!


The patience of the waiting refugees was stunning.

NOT TO ME! And it REALLY MAKES you wonder about WHO those LOOTERS were!

Standing in line for hours in 90-degree weather, pressed hard against one another’s backs, the Haitians did not push, shove, or complain.

Aaaaah, this OLD MAN is IN TEARS!!!!


The nearby presence of American M-4 rifles might be one reason, but there also seems to be a profound sense of community at work here amid the shared, stunning, and staggering loss.

Yeah, they get GUNNED DOWN by the UN "peacekeepers" all the time, so I DON'T THINK the AmeriKan GUNS had anything to do with it!

I think the Haitians are just POLITE PEOPLE, that's all! Not the LOOTING MOBS and ANIMALS the AmeriKan MSM has made them out to be (all the better to occupy, right?).

“Every day, they come in here like this,’’ said Tiyeau Simon, 42, another of the volunteers from the tent city. “They are all grateful for the food.’’

The work appears to be a welcome change for the soldiers, many of whom are veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. “It’s good weather, and we’re doing a good thing for the Haitian people,’’ said Specialist Josh Larsen, 30, a native of Littleton, Mass.... The hill is used to strategic advantage. With food within sight of thousands of hungry refugees, holding the high ground helps the Army control the scene. At the crest, splayed on the ground or sitting in low-slung chairs, soldiers focus binoculars on the sea of people, trying to spot trouble before it happens....

After the food is delivered, the patient but blank unsmiling faces of people who have waited in line for hours suddenly turn bright, if only for a few minutes. Eighty pounds seems nothing for many of these refugees, whether balanced on the heads of elderly women or hoisted on the shoulders of skinny teenagers....

With a two-week food supply in each sack, the effort is a brief window in which the homeless and the jobless can focus on jobs and rebuilding in the time they otherwise would devote to scavenging for nourishment. And that, in a country hungry for a crumb of hope, is a small but important victory.

Oh, COME ON!!!




"Haiti is facing sanitation emergency" by Frank Bajak and Paisley Dodds, Associated Press | January 31, 2010

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Relief officials are scrambling to confront a sanitation crisis that could spread malaria, cholera, and other deadly diseases throughout the chaotic camps packed with hundreds of thousands of Haitian earthquake survivors.

Is this PART of the GLOBALIST'S GENOCIDAL PLAN, is that why they are taking such an interest?

It certainly isn't to help; otherwise, Haiti wouldn't have been the hellhole it was before the quake destroyed it.

Shortages of food, clean water, adequate shelter, and latrines are creating a potential spawning ground for epidemics in a country with an estimated 1 million people made homeless by the Jan. 12 quake.

Which is really weird, because the articles above mentioned none of those things.

Yesterday, a single portable toilet served about 2,000 people in a sprawling camp across a street from the collapsed National Palace, forcing most to use a gutter that runs next to an area where vendors cook food and mothers struggle to bathe their children.

I can't imagine it, folks.

And it makes me ill just thinking about it; they are LIVING IT!!!!

“We wash the vegetables first from water brought in by trucks, but a lot of times the water isn’t clean,’’ said Marie Marthe, 45, cooking a large pot of collard greens, carrots, and goat as flies gathered on her daughter’s diaper. “We don’t have any choice.’’

Survivors have erected flimsy shelters of cloth, cardboard or plastic in nearly every open space left in the capital. Women wait until night to bathe out of buckets, shielding their bodies behind damaged cars and trucks. Water is recycled - used first for brushing teeth, then for washing food, then for bathing. “My 1-year-old has had diarrhea for a week now, probably because of the water,’’ said Bernadel Perkington, 40. “When the earthquake happened I had 500 gourdes (about $15), which I was using for clean water for her. The money for that ran out yesterday.’’

Gee, the tone of the other two articles in my Glob was so positive. WTF?

The crowding and puddles of filthy water that breed mosquitoes have begun to spread diseases such as dengue and malaria, which were already endemic in Haiti. Some hospitals report that half the children they treat have malaria. Tight quarters also expose people to cholera, dysentery, tetanus and other diseases.

Is this the cover story for the introduction of biological weapons now that they have the Haitians in concentration camps, or are they just going to be left to flounder? Or is it another vaccine money-making boo$t, huh?

Dr. Jon Andrus, deputy director of Pan American Health Organization, said nearly three dozen organizations were joining a U.N.-led effort to build latrines and handle solid waste disposal. Authorities also plan to build more permanent resettlement camps with plumbing.

I don't like the sound of that.


And why not make it a hat trick of happy, huh?

"‘Luck’ leads survivor of Haiti quake to MGH" by David Abel, Globe Staff | January 31, 2010

Petit Homme was among the survivors, but his luck went beyond making it out of the rubble. Not only did he find doctors from Massachusetts to help him, he found a way to make it to Boston, on his own, one of the few earthquake victims in Haiti to receive care here.

Must have had connections like the rich, huh?
