    New York Times ^ | AUG. 18, 2018 | ALAN COWELL
    Kofi Annan, a soft-spoken and patrician diplomat from Ghana, who became the seventh secretary general of the United Nations, projecting himself and his organization as the world’s conscience and moral arbiter despite bloody debacles that left indelible stains on his record as a peacekeeper, died on Saturday. He was 80. His death, after a short illness, was confirmed by his family in a statement from the Kofi Annan Foundation, which is based in Switzerland. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001, he was the first black African to head the United Nations, and led the organization for two successive five-year...

    At the same time that localities across the country are in the process of erasing monuments to Confederates and slave-owners, New York City is preparing to honor a black man who ordered the murder of every white man, woman, and child under his control, resulting in 3,000 to 5,000 race homicides. Seth Barron reports at City Journal: In New York City, street co-namings – in which a thoroughfare takes on an additional, ceremonial name in honor of a distinguished figure – rarely generate much fuss, and their approval is typically pro forma.  But yesterday, a city council committee voted to co-name...
  • Federal Judge Gives Green Light To Lawsuit Against Trump’s ‘Racist’ Cancellation Of TPS

    The Daily Caller ^ | 07/24/2018 | Will Racke
    A federal judge in Boston is allowing a lawsuit against the Trump administration’s ending of temporary protections for immigrants to proceed on the grounds the decisions were motivated by racial prejudice. U.S. District Judge Denise Casper rejected Monday the government’s bid to dismiss the lawsuit, which a group of immigrants and civil rights organizations filed in February in response to the cancellation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti and El Salvador. Statements by administration officials — including President Donald Trump — make it plausible that “a discriminatory purpose was a motivating factor in a decision” to wind down TPS...

    During OZY Fest, a two-day event in Central Park this weekend, Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview with nonprofit leader Laurene Powell Jobs and shared that she plans to help reunite immigrant families by providing transportation options. “I’m going to be tweeting about this in the days to come, but if any of you work for an airline please direct-message me because these families will need vouchers and discounted tickets to be reunited over these thousands of miles,” she said on Saturday, according to the Associated Press. As a result of the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy at the border,...

    A Clinton Foundation grant went to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund — but the latter group had only an office address in Washington, D.C. So what happened to the money? Here’s a question for which Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, special counsel Robert Mueller, and former FBI Director James Comey may well know the answer to — but aren’t likely to want to talk about in public, under oath: Why did the Clinton Foundation send a $37 million grant for the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund in 2010 to a Baltimore post office box when the CBHF told federal tax authorities that...

    Shortened title. Full title: Clinton Foundation-Linked Designer Kate Spade Found Dead Of Apparent Suicide After Husband Posts Creepy Photos To His Instagram There’s always a lot of chatter on the internet when celebrities die that their deaths were odd or suspicious. And when wealthy, powerful, or famous people die it often does accompany unusual circumstances, but these people do live unusual lives, after all. As with anything on the internet, there’s a few compelling theories out there but there’s also a whole lot of nonsense, so most people probably don’t pay too much attention to theories of cover-ups or “sacrifices.”...
  • US Government Authorizes Evacuation of Non-Emergency Personnel from Haiti

    WASHINGTON – The United States Department of State authorized on Monday the voluntary evacuation of all non-emergency government employees stationed in Haiti and their families due to widespread protests in the country. The US government’s advisory comes after protests erupted in Haiti on Friday after the government decided to hike fuel prices by 37-50 percent, a decision which has since been reversed, but which has failed to quell the protests. “The US government authorized the voluntary departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel and their families. Right now, the US government has limited ability to provide emergency services to US citizens,”...

    On Saturday, the U.S. Embassy in Haiti warned American citizens, volunteers and missionaries in Haiti to stay in place and hunker down after angry demonstrators attempted to get past a barricade and security guards at a Port-au-Prince hotel. CNN reports that American Airlines, JetBlue and the Spirit Airlines (whose official slogan is: “We’re like a Greyhound bus with wings”) canceled all flights to Haiti following unrest in the country related to rising fuel prices, corruption and widespread poverty. When comparing them side-by-side, the story of the American Revolution ain’t got shit on the history of Haiti. For black people, Haiti...

    The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti has requested additional security personnel including Marines as the Haitian capital has been gripped by days of protests over a government plan to raise fuel prices and cut food subsidies, according to multiple reports. A request made by the embassy includes a Marine Security Guard Augmentation Unit consisting of about 13 Marines and other personnel to reinforce existing embassy security, CNN reported Tuesday. The request has been approved by Trump administration officials, the network added. Staff at the embassy have been instructed to shelter in place by State Department officials, and a travel advisory...

    The State Department on Tuesday warned U.S. citizens to avoid the international airport in Haiti's capital of Port-au-Prince amid continuing political unrest. "Due to the security situation, U.S. government personnel continue to shelter in place and U.S. citizens are advised to do the same. If you attempt to go to the airport, exercise extreme caution and only do so if the route is open," reads a travel advisory on the State Department's website. The department said road blocks and disruptions on roadways have been reported. "Do not travel to the airport unless you have a confirmed airline ticket. Contact the...

Demonstrators linked to various opposition factions marched on the parliament building but were turned back by police. Protesters also set fire to a tax office in the Tabarre area of the capital.

    Former congresswoman Jane Harman appeared on Fox News Sunday this week and expressed that she was troubled by the foreign donations received by the Clinton Foundation: “Yes, there was a process set up. All of the other contributions were reviewed, as I understand it. There was transparency. This was an unsolicited donation of $500,000 at a time when U.S. was deluged with help for Haiti.I guess it got lost in the system. I think it needs to be explained. I don’t understand why the money wasn’t returned, or after the fact, approval wasn’t sought.” She went on to say that, in the...

But the most terrifying words in every other language are, “We’re from the international community and we’re here to help.” In Haitian Creole that would be, "Nou soti nan kominote entènasyonal la e nou isit la pou ede."

    Bay State attorneys are suing President Trump and the Department of Homeland Security for rescinding the temporary protective statuses of thousands of local immigrants from El Salvador and Haiti, arguing that vulgar comments the president made last month suggest the order is racist and unconstitutional. “Today we are drawing a line in the sand and saying that governmental policy cannot be based on bias and discrimination,” said Oren Sellstrom, an attorney with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice, which filed the complaint.

    The confession by global charity World Vision will dismay supporters, including Prince Harry's fiancée, the charity's ambassador until last year. Desperate survivors of the disaster were forced by paid employees of World Vision -- which received £17 million from the UK Government last year -- to have sex or pay money for World Food Programme aid. The revelations -- brought to the attention of the MoS by a former World Vision worker -- will fuel concern over abuses by aid workers following the scandal over the use of prostitutes by Oxfam officials, also in Haiti. Last night, MPs demanded an...
