After the 2010 massive 7.0 earthquake that devastated the Haiti island, killing more than 200,000 people, leveling 100,000 homes, and leaving 1.5 million people destitute. The Clinton Foundation one of the most corrupt money stealing machine of our time, took hundreds of millions of donated dollars that they stated would support the Haitian earthquake relief fund . Instead, Bill “Slick Willie” and “crooked” Hillary Clinton pocketed what they stated was for devastating effects of the earthquake on a very poor nation provoked worldwide concern and inspired an outpouring of aid money intended to rebuild Haiti.
Very little of that aid money actually got to poor people in Haiti. Some projects championed by the Clintons, such as the building of industrial parks, rebuilding the island and jobs. The money the Clinton’s took in offered scarce benefits to the needy. The most devastated and hardest hit areas of Haiti was supposed to be rebuilt; it was never rebuilt. Projects the Clintons aimed at creating jobs proved to be disappointments.
Bill and Hillary’s initial expectations from the millions donated never reached its destination. The arrangement appeared to be a quid pro quo for filling the coffers of the Clintons. The world noticed the patterns involving the Clintons Foundation and the designation of how their so-called funds were used. Large donations to the Clinton Foundation never made it to the needs of Haiti.
What did the Clinton’s do to little Haiti?
The Clinton Foundation selected Clayton Homes, a construction company owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, to build temporary shelters in Haiti. Buffett is a big time donor of the Clinton Global Initiative who has donated charitably to the Clintons as well as the Clinton Foundation. The contract was supposed to be given through the normal United Nations bidding process, with the deal going to the lowest bidder who met the project’s standards.
However, the contract was never competitively bided. Clayton Homes offered to build Hurricane structurally sound trailers but what they actually delivered turned out to be a disaster. The trailers unsafe, had mold and fumes problems. The Caribbean heat inside the trailers made Haitians sick and many of them abandoned the trailers that were deemed unusable.
The Clintons direct $10 million from the Haiti relief fund to a firm called InnoVida, headed by Clinton donor Claudio Osorio, a former Clinton board member and past Democratic fundraiser Chris Korge who has helped raise millions for the Clintons. InnoVida’s, however never built any houses. A federal investigation revealed that Osorio had diverted company funds to pay for his Miami Beach mansion, his Maserati, and his Colorado ski chalet. He pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering in 2013, and is currently serving a twelve-year prison term on fraud charges related to Clinton ties.
Several Clinton associates showed up with Bill to a 2011 Housing Expo to stage construction of thousands of homes in Haiti. No homes have been built.
Contracts to remove debris from Haiti went to a Washington-based company named CHF International. The company’s CEO David Weiss, a campaign contributor to Hillary in 2008, was deputy U.S. trade representative for North American Affairs during the Clinton administration. The secretary of the board, Lauri Fitz-Pegado, served in a number of posts in the Clinton administration, including assistant secretary of commerce.
The Clintons claim to have built schools in Haiti. The Clinton Foundation’s contribution to the school was a government grant for an Earth Day celebration and tree-building activity.
In 2011, the Clinton Foundation brokered a deal with Digicel, a cell-phone-service provider seeking to gain access to the Haitian market. The Clintons arranged to have Digicel receive millions in U.S. taxpayer money to provide mobile phones which the State Department administered through Hillary’s legal aid Cheryl Mills, who in turned distributed Digicel phones free to Haitians. When Haitians used the phones, either to make calls or transfer money, they paid Digicel for the service.
By 2012, Digicel had taken over three-quarters of the cellular phone market in Haiti. Digicel is owned by Irish businessman Denis O’Brien, a close friend of the Clintons. O’Brien secured three speaking engagements in his native Ireland that paid Bill and Hillary $200,000 apiece. These engagements occurred right at the time that Digicel was making its deal with the U.S. State Department when Hillary was the Secretary of State. Coincidentally the Obama administration and the Clinton Foundation used tax-payer funds paid Digicel $45 million.
Now the Clinton Foundation has set-up the Harvey Hurricane relief funds for Houston.
