The country of Haiti is convulsed by growing unrest, with thousands taking to the streets to demand the ouster of U.S. backed President Jovenel Moise. The issues are familiar to the impoverished nation: food and fuel shortages, a mismanaged economy, and rampant corruption. But also driving the protests has been the government's response to several severe storms and hurricanes that have ravaged the island nation. Destroyed housing and businesses have not been rebuilt and the frustration of the people in their government's malfeasance and incompetence has boiled over.

They should first consider going after former President Bill Clinton for not giving all money donated on their behalf from generous Americans. It's somewhere in the Clinton's clutches. Should been given to a few years of work to help the people devastated by the violent earthquake.

FTA: "Haiti needs leadership and an elite that won't rob the people blind." Fat chance. It seems to be in their genes to be corrupt. Blame it on climate! Ha ha!

,but, but, but...I thought Bill and Hillary were going to help rebuild Haiti. Billions were put into their hands to do just that. What happened to that money if they didn't use it to rebuild? Did the Clinton Foundation get several billion dollars richer about that time? That needs to be investigated!

Haiti is a sh**hole country. Period. But not because of geography or climate, but because the population refuses to do anything for themselves—and demand that others do everything for them. Sad, yes. Folks, it is racist and condescending to believe Haitians can’t do anything to help their own situation. Quit enabling his behavior and they might finally get off their butts.

That's why Haiti and many countries like it are known as the "Third World." You can't dress the uncivilized pigs in suits and expect them to behave as moral leaders. Most members of the animal kingdom treat their followers better. Most of the continent of Africa follows the pattern.

The current president, installed with the cooperation of the US, sounds like something the Butcher had her hoofs into. Probably another pay to play scheme. Oh wait, the Clintons stole money off Haiti from US taxpayer and donated money.

I hear this type of thing all the time from people I know: that Trump is a "dictator". I tell them: Really? Then why hasn't Trump had people dragged in for questioning at 3 AM or thrown you into a concentration camp? Of course, Krugman is the one who said the stock market would collapse if Trump was elected. And some people still take Krugman seriously.

If I were a Democrat, I would be afraid, I would be very afraid, after reading former Attorney General Michael Mukasey's Monday WSJ oped: "John Durham's Ukrainian Leads." The subtitle is "What the prosecutor has found may be quite different from what the Democrats are looking for." Mukasey begins: "Americans often boast that we are a nation of laws, but for the moment laws appear to play a decidedly secondary role in the drama we are living in and—hopefully—through " True enough, but the nub of the article, which returns us to the rule of law, comes further on:

CLEARWATER — For an elected body, the Downtown Development Board’s power goes only so far. It does not have authority to pass city ordinances or hire and fire staff. Its influence lies in helping shape how the world sees downtown. Its $267,000 operating budget, funded through a special tax on downtown property owners, is spent on items like festivals and holiday lighting. But this modest, volunteer board could make history next month with what might be the first elected body comprised of a majority of members of the Church of Scientology, downtown’s largest property owner.

NEW YORK—The master of the love letter to New York, E.B. White, eloquently described the city as a place that “can offer the gift of loneliness and the gift of privacy.” Like many of us he believed the place would last and would always matter. White was an optimist, sophisticated and thoroughly American. He was lucky to die in 1985. I say lucky because fate spared him from seeing the wreckage of what was once his dream city. It was also my dream place, an indelible part of my youth, a poem of steel and limestone majesty, of high-end shops, hotels, theaters, and nightclubs, of dandies and high-class women,

In late June of 1941, my father's first cousins Moshe and Dvora fled their house in the tiny town of Kameny Most, about halfway between Slonim and Baranavichy in what is now Belarus. Hitler had launched Operation Barbarossa days before, and their home stood almost on the German-Soviet line that had divided Poland in 1939. Now the Germans had marched into town. The boy and girl, then 15 and 16, reached the woods behind their house before the Germans arrived. Their parents and baby brother fled a minute later, but the Germans

Depravity: the state of being morally bad, or an action that is morally bad. Impeachment depravity: a campaign by Democrat politicos intended to excite the extremist Democrat base and simulate impeachment without the requirement of any grounds for impeachment nor any substantive steps that might trigger real impeachment proceedings. That’s where we stand in the wake of the fake whistleblower scandal and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s empty impeachment inquiry threat, although new developments break minute by minute. The day Pelosi leveled her toothless threat, Mike Huckabee, guesting on The Story with Martha MacCallum, spoke for millions

Stop me if this sounds familiar. An intelligence operative backed by a Clinton lawyer accuses Trump of an inappropriate relationship with a former Soviet bloc country leading to an investigation and calls for everything from imprisonment to impeachment. The political half of Washington D.C. is muttering quietly, “Didn’t we do this already?” After spending years accusing Trump of working with the Russians to undermine Hillary, they’re accusing him of working with the Ukrainians to undermine Biden. If Warren pulls far enough ahead, the Democrats will accuse Trump of working with the Poles or the Latvians to undermine her campaign.

Former Ambassador Joe Wilson — who found himself and his then-wife Valerie Plame in the middle of a political firestorm when he contradicted President George W. Bush’s rationale for the 2003 invasion of Iraq — has died at the age of 69. Plame, a former CIA operative who was outed in apparent revenge after Wilson blew the whistle on Bush, said the cause was organ failure. Wilson and Plame ended their marriage in 2017. A veteran, 23-year diplomat, Wilson had been assigned by the CIA as a private citizen to go to Niger in 2003 and investigate reports that Iraq had been sold uranium yellowcake by the African country

I had misread it. I had written that Zelensky first brought up Biden in the phone call when it was the reverse. Zelensky brought up Giuliani, which then led Trump to bring up Biden.

How many times do Democrats get to cry wolf before a rational body politic tells them to go fly a kite? Instead of retreating with tails between their legs over their failed Russia hoax, they're already at it again. Did any Democrats leading the false charge that President Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election ever apologize for putting the country through this nightmare? Did any of their media water carriers ever backpedal from their anti-Trump sensationalism? Of course not, because in their minds Trump is so evil and his presidency so bad for the country that even ignoble efforts to remove him

The week started off so full of hope, with impeachment in the air as the autumn colors turned. That was Monday. By Thursday morning it was all over but the shouting. Oh, and the lies. Lots and lots of lies. Over the weekend, news broke that a whistleblower had the goods on Trump, who had supposedly twisted the arm of Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky into a quid-pro-quo deal to investigate Joe Biden, Trump's potential president rival. The swamp-fever pitch reached such heights over the next two days, that on Tuesday

BIDDEFORD, Maine — Former Democratic President Bill Clinton and former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are pining for the days when the two parties worked together. The two appeared together to talk about strengthening America’s commitment to education on Friday at the University of New England.

One of the greatest public services President Donald Trump has done for the nation is forcing institutions and people to reveal their true character. While this has been the most valuable when it comes to the media, it has also been valuable when it comes to unmasking globalist Republicans. This was again on display this week, most notably in the revelation that Paul Ryan was inciting Fox News from his position on the board of Fox Corporation to "decisively break" with President Trump.

Have you ever sat down in a restaurant and felt instantly drawn to a particular dish on the menu? The reason might be something as simple as that you love the dish’s main ingredient, but it’s often more than that. It could be the item’s placement on the menu, its name, even whom you saw eating it as you crossed the restaurant. Understanding all the factors that attract us to certain foods is a growing area of research, with enormous potential for addressing something unexpected: climate change.
