Haitian Sh*thole the Crooked Clinton Foundation Created
Haiti is a sh*thole, and has been for some time. But in sh*t there is opportunity. Thus, on Jan 12, 2010 the Clintons hit the Haitian lotto.
On that day, Haiti suffered a devastating earthquake. Thus, the Gold Rush began for the Clinton Cartel.
Within 4 days of the earthquake, Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived to survey the damage; the damage she would create.
2 days later, real trouble arrived in the form of former President Bill Clinton. He had been appointed UN special envoy to Haiti, so he knew the lay of the land.

Haiti set up the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission. IHRC. Bill Clinton weaseled his way to a position as one of the shot-callers in Haiti. Thus, the IHRC might as well had been called the Interim Hillary Rodman Clinton. The Clinton Cartel commingled Hillary Clinton’s role as Secretary of State with that of Bill Clinton’s and the Clintons were set.
Potential money to be made during a disaster is huge. And the Clintons can be found where the money is.
Here’s what we wrote about the Clintons’ profiteering:
Apparently Haiti has a substantial gold mine.
Here’s the rub. The Gold mine is run by Hillary’s Brother. Haiti also used to be pretty self serving. They grew their own rice, but no more! They buy their rice from Arkansas- and Bill’s brother. Graft has no limits, it seems.
The Haitian protesters noticed an interesting pattern involving the Clintons and the designation of how aid funds were used. They observed that a number of companies that received contracts in Haiti happened to be entities that made large donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Haitian contracts appeared less tailored to the needs of Haiti than to the needs of the companies that were performing the services. In sum, Haitian deals appeared to be a quid pro quo for filling the coffers of the Clintons.
But it’s far worse.
Politico wrote this of the burgeoning scandal in Haiti:
As the latest release of Hillary Clinton’s personal emails by the U.S. State Department Monday revealed, that perception was not an accident. “We waged a very successful campaign against the negative stories concerning our involvement in Haiti,” Judith McHale, the under-secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, wrote on February 26, 2010. A few weeks before, the public affairs chief had emailed newspaper quotations praising U.S. efforts in Haiti to Secretary Clinton with the note “Our Posts at work.” Clinton applauded. “That’s the result of your leadership and a new model of engagement w our own people,” she replied. “Onward!”
But one person even closer to the secretary of state was singing a different tune—very, very quietly. On February 22, after a four-day visit to the quake zone, Chelsea Clinton authored a seven-page memo which she addressed to “Dad, Mom,” and copied their chief aides. That informal report tells a continuing story of the unique brands of power and intelligence wielded by the Clinton family in Haiti and around the world—and of the uniquely Clinton ways they often undermine themselves.
Check out how fast and loose the Clintons acted, according to National Review:
For example, the Clinton Foundation selected Clayton Homes, a construction company owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, to build temporary shelters in Haiti. Buffett is an active member of the Clinton Global Initiative who has donated generously 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. UN officials said, however, that the contract was never competitively bid for.
Clayton offered to build “hurricane-proof trailers” but what they actually delivered turned out to be a disaster. The trailers were structurally unsafe, with high levels of formaldehyde and insulation coming out of the walls. There were problems with mold and fumes. The stifling heat inside made Haitians sick and many of them abandoned the trailers because they were ill-constructed and unusable.
And that was a good deal when compared to how things went with InnoVida.
The article continues.
The Clintons also funneled $10 million in federal loans to a firm called InnoVida, headed by Clinton donor Claudio Osorio. Osorio had loaded its board with Clinton cronies, including longtime Clinton ally General Wesley Clark; Hillary’s 2008 finance director Jonathan Mantz; and Democratic fundraiser Chris Korge who has helped raise millions for the Clintons.
Normally the loan approval process takes months or even years. But in this case, a government official wrote, “Former President Bill Clinton is personally in contact with the company to organize its logistical and support needs. And as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has made available State Department resources to assist with logistical arrangements.”
InnoVida had not even provided an independently audited financial report that is normally a requirement for such applications. This requirement, however, was waived. On the basis of the Clinton connection, InnoVida’s application was fast-tracked and approved in two weeks.
The company, however, defaulted on the loan and never built any houses. An 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 the loan.
If you think the Clintons didn’t know Osorio was a crook, then I have some Clayton Homes trailers to sell you…cheap.
In short, the Clintons went from “dead broke”, to a net worth well over $100 million. And that’s not from speeches. That’s from whispers, and pay-for-play.
