"One of the favorites to advance. And now, that's all in jeopardy. He said they didn't use Cathy killer. We've also been talking about Charlotte coral a lot on this show. She's not on that list. Remember what we said if they failed to qualify, leaving coral out would come back to haunt me out of the manager. It's interesting, 'cause I watched this game and I felt like there was a Mexico team under pressure and I was thinking, you know, why? It's pressure of their own making her van gotta came out and said two days before the tournament, you're gonna see a Mexico like you've never seen before. Clearly this team wasn't up for it. They were disappointing. You know what else was really disappointing her. Can I have to point this out? The attendance Adele volcan for all that we've seen that city support tigress, the women's team, you know what the attendance was last night. 5300 something. And herc, that's what they announced. That's what they announced. That's nothing. How do we explain that? No, you can't explain that because we've been hearing how great monterrey is and we're going to see crowds of 40,000 plus. I know it's a weekend opponent on paper. Maybe they were expecting that for the U.S. women's national team versus them, but this is still an opponent show your home team. This is still home soil and it's specifically put in monterrey because they wanted to showcase what rayada is what they've done. How good they've been. The support that they've had. But that's not translated. The international level. Yeah. Any way you slice it, it's a catastrophic result and listen here. Watch out for Haiti. Haiti can beat Mexico the way that Mexico played last night in the way that Haiti played last night. And if they do, Mexico could be looking at missing out on the World Cup entirely. Remember, the top two get an automatic spot at the next World Cup. Third.

"Zero against Jamaica. All right, herc. Time for calm or is it time for an alarm specifically a fracasso alarm? Alarm. Monica Vergara has some explaining to do. Montero Bernal, the two center back pairings, the pairing have never played together decides to experiment in this game. You've got players like licha cervantes probably your best goal scorer, Kati Martinez, who don't start the game. It doesn't even enter the game, they just cervantes comes on with like 20 to go. It's a case where you lose your first game ever on Mexican soil to the Jamaican national team. Quite frankly, you talk about the missed chances for Mexico. Jamaica just had as many if not more quality chances. They underestimated Jamaica. And for underestimating Jamaica, you lose the first game. Now you are behind V8 ball with Haiti and the U.S. women's national team up next. And what you were supposed to be.

"All right, Eric, let's get into our big takeaways from this match. I'll go first here. Because I will be honest, I can't really believe I'm gonna say this. My biggest concern coming into this tournament was the U.S. attack. And I know that sounds crazy. You got Mallory pew, Sophia Smith, Alex Morgan. You're starting front three. They're the top three scores in the NWSL. But I feel like I mentioned this on the U.S. broadcast the other day. There is a little bit of a pattern that they weren't clinical against Columbia, at least in stretches. There's Czech Republic in the she believes cup where they get shut out. They get shut out against South Korea last fall on a friendly and that's not even mentioning three out of 6 shutouts at the Olympics, okay? And yet for all of that, the player that solves all of those problems in 20 minutes is Alex Morgan. I'll remind you her, remember when we had the debate when Katarina macario was still healthy about who should be the number 9, you said makario and fair. I said Alex Morgan because you know you can trust her in those situations. She proved that, dude, I come out of this game really worried about the U.S. defense. This Haiti team is ranked 60th in the world, say what you will about the FIFA rankings. They.

You're gonna see me there with Alejandro pareja and our good man Richard Mendez. What a moment, a three man booth fitting of el trafico. All right, to the cocker cap, W championships down in Monterey, U.S. women's national team taking on Haiti, Alex Morgan getting the breakthrough early on. You love that finish. I do love that finish. That is a very sneaky, very intuitive finish, and this is even better for me. Look at that. Boom. I thought she was slowing down at the national team level. 7 minutes after scoring the first one Alex Morgan adds a second and just like that, the U.S. we've been a little bit vulnerable in that first half. We're in control of the game. Speaking of the vulnerability, here's a play, Emily Fox called for the penalty and Haiti will get an opportunity from the spot. No doubt about that, right? Last ditch defending can't do that, but oh no. Rose bourgeois from the spot slams it off the post Haiti missing a golden opportunity. Yeah, everything could have changed there off the post. Misses it. But got a second bite of the app will just couldn't get the correct touch. Oh, I gotta get your opinion on this. Late first half, bourgeois, by the way, the same player missed the penalty. Goes into Kelly O'Hara here and gets a red card. But wait a second, her. BAR is gonna say, you know what, why don't you check that out and after a review, it's a yellow. What? Yeah, the fact that VAR came in here and then the referee herself went and checked and said, yeah, don't worry about being raked across the side of the body. It wasn't enough for me is very interesting. Late in the second half, the U.S. finally gets their third. It comes from midge purse. Yeah, Mitch first with tons of time here. She really like, look at this. She gets a chance to get herself right, take a touch and then finish it. Purse, the Silver Spring, Maryland native. With a third goal is the U.S. wins..
Tucker Carlson: It's Not Civilized to Arrest Your Political Opponents
"It's wicked. This is evil stuff. As Tucker Carlson put it, the Democrats don't get to jail their political opponents. This is not the way civilized countries operate. Just because you control The White House in both houses of Congress does not mean you get to throw your political opponents behind bars. That's not what we do in America. That's what they do in Haiti. But that's what we're doing now. And Peter Navarro is not the first. Biden's Justice Department also arrested former Trump adviser Steve Bannon for a similar fake crime. Steve Bannon is awaiting trial this summer. So this is not something we've seen before. It's a huge step toward the politics of the third world. But the media whose job you thought it was to push back against power are not, they're in fact applauding because it turns out no punishment is too severe for those who disagree with the national news media.

The Left's Lawless Immigration Policies
"So I want to talk about three small wins and I also want to talk about a very telling admission by Mallorca himself. So here's the first win and that is that the big uproar about all those Haitians who were descending on American shores. Obviously, these are not people at the southern border. They're showing up from Haiti. And they're showing up because the estes poverty in Haiti, but there's poverty in many parts of the world. Our immigration policies are not based upon your poor, therefore you have a right to come to America. So here were the Haitians and they were basically being seen on mosque coming across the southern border huge public relations scandal horrific images for Americans. Who are these people and even though the Biden administration tried to turn the tables? Look at these Texas Rangers rounding them up on horseback cowboy style. Nevertheless, the Biden people realized this is a very serious problem, and so they began to then deport the Haitians. Expelling thousands of them in sending them back home where they, of course, belonged. Victory number one. Here's victory number two the Biden administration as I mentioned on this podcast a couple of times was getting ready was on the verge of making gigantic financial settlements to families that said, oh, we were families who were separated at the border, even if the separations were brief, even if they were temporary. Oh, they were so traumatic. Why not use to this at all? This is emotional hardship and pain. We need to be paid $450,000 each. Not even for family. Per person. And the biodiversity was like, oh, yeah, you know, this song's reasonable. Yeah, yeah, I think giving family is taking taxpayer money and giving America Mexican families a $1 million here a $1 million there so they can basically go hit the Mexican casinos. They thought this was kind of a fair settlement. Well, once again, the public outrage over this. Made it impossible politically for them to go forward with this. And so they have ended those court negotiations over these financial compensation, victory number two. Victory number three is a court victory coming out of Texas and Texas. I have to say, has been the center of the resistance to Biden's immigration policies just a flurry of lawsuits filed by taxes really by attorney general, Ken Paxton, who's been on the show, and this is forced Biden to reimpose, even though not fully Trump's remain in Mexico policy. It's even forced Biden to continue some border wall construction, which is to say to close some gaps in the wall not to build new sections of the wall which they flatly refuse to do, but at least to patch up the wall in places where they were sort of gaping holes. Now, let me turn to the statement by orcas. We have fundamentally changed immigration enforcement in the interior for the first time ever our policy explicitly states that a non citizens unlawful presence in the United States will not by itself be a basis for the initiation of an enforcement action. Now this I think is really significant, you've got a top Biden official basically saying, it is our stated policy that we will not enforce the law. If you've got a guy in the United States illegal, you know, he's illegal. He admits he's illegal. But he doesn't have other violations. He's not a gang member. He doesn't have a criminal record. He's just an illegal. Not by itself, is not sufficient to initiate return or deportation proceedings. So what we have here is a truly lawless administration in the clinical sense of the term, there is a law system says if you don't like a law try to change it, they can change the law they're using the technique of quote enforcement to say, we're going to enforce it here, but not over there in effect what they're saying is we're going to at least in these important respects,

New Migrant Caravan: 'Tell Biden We're Coming'
"Tell Biden we are coming. The new migrant caravan of border jumpers and line cutters and criminals, new migrant caravan marches through Mexico to U.S. border. We have to change the way that we talk about this. These are not migrants. These are criminals. They have the intent to break federal law and state law and break into our country. Migrants are people that move from Southern California to the central valley to try to get work. That's would be a migrant. And this is nothing more than the movement of people for an economic incentive. The migrants mostly from Central America, South American Haiti are taking the 2500 mile to 200 mile journey to Texas. I'm reading from the Washington examiner. This is interesting. The group was organized through a QR code that allowed participants to register starting October 15th, according to Fox News. Due to the Mexican government banning migrants from hitching rides from truckers, the migrants will have to take the entire journey on foot. Tell Biden we are coming, said one migrant named William from El Salvador, told the news outlet, wait, so they have QR codes that they're organizing with this thing? What is this a rock concert? Let's get QR codes and we can figure out how to illegally enter into the country. Do you know what a QR code is? Some of you might be listening. You don't know what that is. It is when you see on a poster or on television, bottom right hand corner, it's it looks like a barcode, something that you would use at the grocery store and you put up your phone to it, and it helps you join the caravan. You know, we should have a QR code to subscribe to the Charlie Kirk show. That'd be interesting. Not join a caravan. Tell Biden we are coming. The caravan left chula on the border with Guatemala on October 23rd. With hours beginning of their journey the migrants were greeted by a wall of Mexican National Guard troops. This was a joke. The Mexican National Guard should have held the line. But the migrants forced their way to the blockade, continuing their journey to the United States. The caravan is moving north before the reinstatement of the remaining Mexico policy. Border arrests have surged to an all time high, more than 1.7 million in fiscal year 2021. How many getaways have there been, by the way? U.S. customs and border patrol did not immediately respond to questioning for comment from the new the new
What Ever Happened to the Clinton Crime Family Investigation?
"Hey, Charlie, whatever happened to the investigation into the clintons. Do you think they're ever going to go to jail? Thanks so much Quinn from Virginia. It's interesting. Actually, Merrick Garland was asked about this and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton who ran or run the Clinton crime family. You don't hear as much from them lately, except that Bill Clinton was hospitalized, and in addition to that, we all know the crimes that the Clinton family committed in Haiti, we know that they basically ran an international money capturing scheme from foreign governments to sell access. And isn't it interesting how the Clinton foundation stopped being so popular as soon as they got out of popular life in close to political power. I thought they were doing such wonderful work to cure river blindness and get young people in power, but as soon as they're no longer in political positions of authority, it's all the donations start to dry up. Merrick Garland admits and cut 87, the investigation into the clintons is ongoing. Play cut 87. In September of 2020, press reports indicated that special counsel Durham's team was seeking information on the FBI's handling of the Clinton foundation investigation. And can you commit to allowing the special counsel Durham's investigation to proceed? You would know if he weren't continuing to do his work. I'll take that as a confirmation that the investigation is continuing. This Department of Justice is corrupted. It's in the midst of many different controversies. Merrick Garland has a lot of answers that he has to deliver. A lot of things he has to answer for, in regards to his children and his son in law, making millions of dollars off the critical race theory that he's trying to deploy shock troops off to try to prevent.

You can't but in terms of democracy it's such a different set of problems and hence a different approach needed democracy as you well know is a very long process. Takes a long time to build. A lot of elements are necessary including a lot of intangibles going to the very heart of the social contract in a given society between the people and their government so it requires a very different approach very different mindset very different set of tools and capabilities. One of the things. I liked that. I've heard you say is that the international community should not be dissuaded by the level of difficulty when we look at the political infrastructure in haiti. Can you. can you explain more about that and why we shouldn't be dissuaded. I don't think we can ever be dissuaded from this kind of work whether it's a meeting humanitarian needs of those desperately in need or it's the long hard work of building democracy. The people in a society they want it. They have the right to democratic governance i. It's the autocrats dictators who want us to be dissuaded in the haitian people are proud and strong and they've never given up and i don't i certainly don't think we as their arbor should ever give up when we look at at haiti again. In your opinion what should we look to as an indicator of democratic success. How do we evaluate that. So the the starting point is a new and good constitution. The current prime minister on re recently proposed one with a different model. Get rid of the prime minister. Have strong president vice president but also some pretty strong provisions dealing with accountability for government officials. I don't want to pass. Judgment is not for me to judge the choices that patients will make under constitution but clearly a new good constitution addresses issues related to power in roles and responsibilities in authorities of different state bodies is essential and related to data..

"I think was notable at the heart of all. These protests is general frustration with the sense that people's everyday concerns are not being earned address. These concerns like economic inequality government corruption crime and violence and certain parts of haitian society are also marginalized political life. And that's particularly women and young people who make up the majority of the population but the good news. Is that in response to these challenges. We're seeing so many levels of activism young people middle class members of diaspora ever turn home and are trying to make a difference in ways. We haven't seen before when you talk about enthusiasm. How does that. So itself in haiti. Do you see people more excited. You see higher numbers of turnout of of individuals interested in helping what. What have you witnessed your saint. More young people take part in political life sir taking part parts social protest movements there even starting political parties so this includes elements of the ancient middle-class university students of turning from studies abroad to make a difference back home roger. Your team at the international republican institute has created a university talking about all these students who have who've come back home from studying abroad in. You've done it. Directly to help broaden the voices across the country can you. Can you tell us a little bit more about this program and how it got started a horse and maybe this tackle some of what has already said. You know this program that we've done under under the consortium and the in northern haiti is a program that targets local grassroots organizations. These are groups. That are really just starting. That are maybe mainly composed of volunteers. And that i really at the local level in communities and arnor ship with local haitian We developed a curriculum. Of course that could benefit found that could help Increase their acidy in areas such as advocacy negations financial management monitoring evaluation and looking for additional. Resources be more sustainable. One of the success. I would say this program is the fact that he's independent groups. These ten fifteen different organizations in know each other at the beginning of the course and of course they were able to establish new relationships and form a a sorts of network and informal network would say and we're hopeful that and the future you can get changes to leverage those groups and not network on in order for greater collaboration take place between organizations in greater civic engagements love you both have remarked repeatedly to me in private and again in this conversation about the resiliency of the haitian people. Can you each take a minute to talk about what you found to be so hopeful. In this time of despair were saying no new elements of of patient society. Get involved in politics and these are new voices and they hold the promise to begin essential and perhaps incremental renewal of asian politics and political leadership.

Ross the republic of haiti often finds itself vulnerable to storms both natural and manmade but lately. The caribbean second largest island has suffered a string of catastrophes like the rest of latin american. The caribbean covert has been crushing. Then the tremendously shocking. Assassination of president. Chauvinism me happened in july and august just a few weeks later. A major earthquake claims more than two thousand lives. Prime minister aria said the quake put his nation on its knees and yet those who know haiti the best say that these islanders won't stay down for long because they told me their resilience is extraordinary and in the face of these challenges haitians will rebuild their home and reconstruct their democracy today. We'll talk to two haitians.

The fact that There's a lot of challenges in the country. There's a live on endemic our recurring Options such as poverty and what is missing. A lot of times is the positive stories that come out of eighty a lot of on resilience in the haitian people come. I think roger's right hideous face. The a series of seemingly relentless difficult challenges all from nature viet hurricanes or earthquakes and person may challenges football conflicts and crises and these tend to be the moments when haiti gets the greatest media which but unlike other countries in the region that are or even globally. They're facing some those same challenges when there are positive elements. they sometimes get overshadowed by these larger events. I'd say that there's there's tremendous culture in. Haiti is often overlooked on. There's also very large station desk for the. Us hasn't fun. I'm our own cultures. And i think that's something that can be sometimes overshadowed by the media.

"Press might be on the crisis in. Haiti is still raging after a devastating earthquake and a presidential assassination. What the people of. Haiti need to build a more certain future. We're asking people to donate to individual groups. In haiti that are local and already on the ground and who know what haitians need to know how to get what they need to them. The way forward for haiti coming up on a word with me. Jason johnson. stay with us. Welcome to a word a podcast about race in politics and everything else. I'm your host jason johnson. The island nation of haiti is just beginning to catch. Its breath after a massive august earthquake and that catastrophe struck just a few weeks after the assassination of president giovanelli maurice which left the government in a state of chaos while haiti could use international aid in its recovery. The country suffered from a history of colonial oppression and interference that leaves its citizens wary of efforts to help something that could complicate efforts to rebuild haiti's physical and political infrastructure. Joining us to talk about it. This morning is marlena doubt. She's a professor of african american and african studies at the university of virginia. She specializes in caribbean studies. And is the author of tropics of haiti race in the literary history of the haitian revolution in the atlantic world and professor. Marlena doubt joins us. Now welcome to a word funchal so much for having me. We're now a couple of weeks after the earthquake. What was the scope of the damage in haiti. And what do we know about where the recovery now. I think a lot of americans again we. It's not just that we have short attention spans. We have enough crises in this country. That a lot of people didn't pay a lot of attention to how bad things were in haiti. Yes so the earthquake hit the southern peninsula. Of haiti its epicenter was near the haitian city of lake high. And if you were to look at a map of haiti you'd see that the southern peninsula kind of extends out pretty far into the atlantic and so it makes getting to the furthest reaches of the peninsula pretty difficult given the status of roads. Unfortunately also a tropical storm hit the island. Only a few days afterwards complicating both the relief than disaster recovery effort and the ability to kind of find people who were still trapped under the rubble. One thing that was a little bit more fortunate than last earthquake in two thousand ten was at this one hit about eight twenty nine. Am so there weren't a lot of people kind of out and about but at the same time being inside wasn't necessarily the safest place to be either because of the way that buildings are constructed and our last episode we heard from an environmental leader about disaster capitalism. That's how in the aftermath of natural disasters millions and sometimes billions of dollars in aid distributed. But most of it never goes to the people who actually need it. Have we seen disaster. Capitalism play out in haiti after the most recent tragedy earthquake disaster capitalism has spent a part of haitian history for a really long time. I think it most visibly came into the frame in two thousand ten. When haiti suffered a seven point zero magnitude earthquake in the capital of puerto class. This is a moment when we saw millions if not billions of dollars of aid pour into the country supposedly through various aid groups. The most famous example of aid money that was donated for the relief and recovery effort in haiti but never reached. Haitians is the red cross the npr propublica report which is now sort of infamous that that half a half a billion dollars. Excuse me that was supposed to go towards building houses. We saw six houses built. The rest of the money was either funneled into their other projects because they were involved in development. They are disaster relief so they gave tents and t shirts but they weren't really able to continue with the effort in the years following when reconstruction needed to happen. And so this is the situation in the scenario that we would definitely like to avoid this time around and so we're asking people to donate to individual groups in haiti that are local and already on the ground and who know what haitians need to know how to get what they need to them. I'm an american and i live in central illinois. I live outside of dallas. I'm living in riverside california. How would i go about finding the local groups because even people were passionate about these issues. Like hey i've got five hundred dollars a donate. I've got one hundred dollars to donate. I've got fifty dollars to donate. How do they know the proper ways to send their money to actually help people on the ground. In haiti as opposed to having it funneled into you know some cfo's pockets. That's a great question. I would direct people to one website. They can use to find information which is fo cow. This is an aid organization. That's long standing haitian base. They've been in the country for a very long time. They are haitian run and work with haitians and on their web page they can also they also direct you to places in the southern peninsula particularly that could use help and assistance at this moment but i would say beyond that and i think this is sort of gets at the more difficult problem a sort of more theoretical problem that underlies the question. Which is that you know. Haitians for a lot of people are abstract people who live over there and so the because they don't necessarily know a lot of haitians they don't have people they can reach out to to say. Who are some people who i can individually help because in the moments directly following the earthquake the best way it turns out to help and get money to haitians was to send it to them individually to send people that you knew money who could then distribute things like water and food could purchase things there and so this is i think what compounds the the tragedy is that we don't wanna be giving our money to these huge organizations but as you mentioned most people in the united states don't necessarily have a contact in haiti. They don't know who they should reach out to who they should find it so i would say some churches hatian churches in miami and new york could also be other or in your communities because there are haitian communities in chicago in boston for example and to a lesser extent in places like houston in los angeles and so reaching out some of those churches that are haitian congregations and finding out what they suggest is. Well take a short break when we come back. More on the path. Forward for haiti. This is a word jason johnson. Stay tuned this. Is jason johnson hall civil word snakes.

"Katz is about to put all of the united states on blast over. Its treatment of haiti. So let me just come in here and say americans are also really generous. We've got big fix it energy. We funneled millions to port-au-prince when its ramshackle buildings came down after the twenty ten earthquake but jonathan. He thinks that big fix it. Energy can be problematic if you don't spend enough time considering just what you're fixing or why like. Maybe you're feeling compelled to send cash to haiti right now. If you're an american is sitting here thinking like okay. Well i guess. Should i give money to the red cross like. Would you do that. No that that that i wouldn't do because that. That doesn't really help anybody. Because the red cross doesn't address. The root causes of the problems in haiti and in fact has a history of of adding to the root causes. You know we. I mean specifically as americans have played a major role in causing haiti's poverty like a direct role in in baking haiti. As poor as it is today. So i would say that like if americans want to get involved in fixing haitian poverty that that is possible but it means first and foremost addressing the inequities and and the the extraction and just all of the the roiling that we have done as americans in the past. You can't just come in and say it's day zero you know. Haiti is in its natural state of poverty and i brave american. I'm going to fix. It really takes a lot more digging a lot more self awareness and that is it worth looking at the two thousand ten quake as an example of like. Here's where you see where the will is there. But the resources aren't and when the resources come in they come in in the wrong way. Oh hundred percent one of the funniest examples that i remember from twenty ten was that the fiji water company. They donated water that they flew in from fiji. If you look at a map of the world you'll see how far fi she is from haiti and that seems like a little extra yes very much. So he's also an island. Eighty has water it just needs and it has some water treatment. It just needs to stand up that that amount of water treatment. It didn't need to be like this like spring water from the south pacific. But when people remember if you believe in now remember the the quake eleven years ago. They often remember that. There were these sort of big proteomic. Figures floated about money often in the sentence or the question. Where did the money go. And if you actually look back at that money first of all much more was pledged than was ever delivered and the money that was spent the vast majority of it never went to haiti. Kinda just went in circles from from one hand to the next in the donor countries. One of the biggest figures was a half a billion dollars went to the department of defense. The us department of defense and the point of that money was to fund military response. That did do some things. I mean the the. Us military helped prepare the port in port-au-prince but the vast majority of that money the vast majority of time and resources were there to prevent social unrest and to essentially keep people from leaving haiti and coming to the united states. The risk of all of those things happening were extremely overblown. But you know the vast majority of us soldiers marines airmen coasties that went never left their ships they never they never set foot on haitian soil so they were there to do a job that they didn't really need to be doing exactly exactly so you mentioned the red cross. They also had a half billion dollars exactly. And they spent it internally. I'm not saying they pocketed. There's just like this is how an organization works like they have people. They have to pay their salaries. They have to pay their travel. And then they bought like a bunch of hygiene kits. they bought a bunch of tarps. They distributed those. But you know a vanishingly. Tiny fraction of all of the money was spent or talked about or whatever ended up in the hands of haitians. I mean it was it was. It was far less than one percent and much of that you know went to sort of the haitian elite. The vast majority of just ordinary haitians saw nothing got a tarp. They got whatever they got. A t shirt from an ngo. Maybe they got a bag of rice. That lasts them. You know a couple of weeks. And that was it. So they end up clearing the rubble themselves repurposing it and rebuilding their own homes and the way they rebuild. Their homes is as fragile and unsafe as it was before the last disaster struck. Yeah we talk about you know. Don't give a man a fish. Teach him to fish sort of things and it seems like this is what's happening in. Haiti is the opposite of what we tell each other. Were supposed to do when folks are in a bad situation. Yeah that particular phrase often comes up. It gets everything backwards. Haitians are by necessity the most self sufficient creative people That you know you will ever be in your life. This is a country where everything that you do. You have to do for yourself. If your house catches fire and i have been in a fire in haiti so i can tell you this firsthand if your house catches fire you're gonna put it out yourself. There's oh fire department. That's gonna come and take care of it for you if the road is in disrepair which all roads are in haiti. All the time. You're not gonna wait for like the state construction crew to come fix it. You're going to go and use whatever little money you have and by a like a bag of cement ra- bag of any kind of road filling material and then you'll sit out in the road and you will fix the pothole yourself. And just sort of flagged down passing cars and asked them to like chip in to help you pay for for the bag of cement. These kinds of things happen all the time. If any country in the world is full of people who could teach us how to fish. It's haiti. the problem isn't a lack of know how the problem isn't a a lack of desire or or will it is really a lack of material resources but understanding why those resources are.

"There are some very small things that you can do in terms of where you put the steel in your concrete structure to make sure that it's ductile. We say doctor want structures that can bend during an earthquake go back and forth flex but not break in as a way of doing that but you have to be educated in on really understand exactly what you place. The steel in connection areas to build that duck tape in many of the structures in haiti did not have that. The vast majority of the engineer structures didn't have that level of detail because they weren't designed that way and to tell me a little bit more about that process of figuring out what needs to change so we were pretty quickly able to realize what was wrong. What needed to change. And so you'll you'll see. There are a number of organizations that were in haiti and some of them are still there. Some of them unfortunately had to leave because of security issues in the country but they will focused on on teaching the masons. The one of the challenges in a place like haiti. And it's not just a sink to haiti. But many developing countries most of the structures are not built over ninety percent of not built by engineers or professionally designed built by local masons. And so and they don't have professional engineers engineering design and so you have to get on the ground in the neighborhoods in the communities and teach people. this is how you make concrete. That's going to be strong once. it said. This is the sequence of construction that you wanna use to make sure your structure has a chance of withstanding earthquake and those efforts have been going on since two thousand ten probably not enough but certainly. I think it's had some impact. They've been all over the country in the northern part of the country where we thought the next earthquake would occur because of the false structure and it didn't but there's been those efforts taking place throughout the country. I also think that there's been more conversation at least in the us recently about the history of colonialism in haiti and how that has really undermined some of the systems that could be in place to help people and especially in moments of natural disaster. So how do you think that legacy fits into this conversation about buildings and why they aren't strong enough to withstand earthquakes and hurricanes. That's exactly right. Hey what happened in. Haiti wasn't just something that's happened in the last ten or twenty years. It's really a dates back to history of colonialism. It is back to win. Haiti became the first free black black nation in the world and the subsequent events that happened because of that and the way he was treated by the international community. Those effects are still there to this day. If you look back. Several hundred years that when haiti obtained his freedom from france that everybody knows france imposed the debt on. Hey the debt. That haiti was paying really until last week's in decades and so because of that haiti was never really able to To recover as a country. Because they've been paying back the debt to france for for many decades and i think that all has implications in terms of how they're able to to rebuild things safely. We're seeing it play out today. Played out in two thousand ten with just a challenge to had in recovering from that event and responding to it is going to happen again. Now it's going to be even worse because of the recent assassination and obviously the other challenges they have with with a covert security issues that are eighty right now. It's going to be a really long road for them to recover from this event and do you think that he is better off in this moment. And they were in the aftermath of the twenty. Ten earthquake do you think that enough has changed in terms of the ways that buildings are designed and built that they are at least in a slightly better place not not like i slightly better certainly there in a slightly better place in in port-au-prince where they've made sure some of the major structures that are in haiti now were built using the right codes build using the right types of construction practices. I think the challenge is will remain in the rural areas like loci in northern part of the country. Where they don't have that same focus In haiti i think you're gonna continue to see Problems unless they really invest in earthquake resistant design invest in people on the ground being trained to be able to build these these structures to be much more safe. What do you think. The international community can do now for haiti multiple things in the short term. Right now. they're still in the acute response recovery phase of the earthquake and they need to do that as expedition csi care and there are a number of challenges with security issues and obviously coveted but trying to to to reach out and trying to help them in the short term remove all the debris and trying to get back to some level of normalcy in the in those communities and obviously treating bills that are injured and trying to help them recover. I think beyond that. We need to continue this effort of having organizations in haiti to build capacity around this. This is something that they will have to deal with forever. We may not have one in the near future but haiti will continue to have earthquakes. And so we need to figure out a way to.

Haiti is reeling after being struck by a new disaster the quake rocked residents of southwestern haiti into the streets. Buildings and homes collapsed into rubble and dust. so far. it's known that more than fourteen hundred people have died. The tremor claimed many hospitals that would have aided the injured and many churches that are at the center of haiti's social safety net as aid trickles in from abroad. Patients are trying to push their way into areas of shelter guarded by police. Eighty now fears. What may come from above as it reels from what happened below at a time when the political situation on the ground represented its own disaster. Poor haiti seems unable to catch a break. Sarah burke is the economists bureau chief from mexico central america and the caribbean.

Those problems of seem to come in particularly quick succession most recently with this earthquake. And where and when did the earthquake habit so it was saturday morning around eight thirty.

"Sixty Hundred dollars energetically knowledged and sixty thousand dollars of goods because you one million dollars plus four percent of its value. So that's why people take their money from the paper desalegn and exchange for bitcoin. Why because more and more people wants to bitcoin which increased this cassidy increase the value and also the fact that more people wanted more people will use it to Trade between between each other right so because more people are using it adoption. then it's value is going even more appreciative. The value increase even more so. That's the the value of bitcoin to answer. Your question is one bitcoin. Now what can you buy with it. That's when you go into how does this and i. It's sort of a rhetorical question. But i want you to answer it the how does this change how. The economy works in haiti in particular to go around these corporations that are controlling things. How do we get from People basically peer to peer Transactions as opposed to this middleman. That's controlling yes. This is what you're trying to do. This is what we ought to be doing right now. It's so exciting okay. It's a great question. Here's what we do to send money to haiti right now. It costs If i want to send fifty bucks is going cost me seven to eight dollars. Each gave twenty to twenty five percent of the value. That i'm sending over there. Wants the money get they're going to dig on to convert the american dollar to haitian dollars and they're going to take money out of it as well and once the person half the money you spin it as soon as possible because if you hold it too long is gonna lose value through inflation gay and not only that but because of sick you insecurities in haiti right. If you are known to have a lot of cash in your whole will you're exposing yourself to tap a a valid crimes kidnapping etc so mud had not having money's issue and having too much of it is a nation now crypto when i said one little haiti coined care. Which is our queen. When i send a coin from here. Little haiti to haiti. All i'm paying is the gas right now is the cousin paying is about two dollars right and it will be two dollars if i will transfer ten thousand words of a haiti quaint or i will send ten dollars worth of your haiti coin. All i would want to send Let's say a million dollars worth of little haiti quake to haiti. The cost stays the same. The reason is it's peer to peer and cauquenes card. Danell ecosystem is so marvellously built that it goes fast and also it attentive fis. The transaction through independent knows right knows which is dependent computers. That allows me to say Bob i'm sending you ten thousand dollars. Can thousand dollars worth of little haiti. When to your wallet right now once you receive it and haiti and your cell phone. All you need is an internet connection and you have it on your food. I didn't have to go to the money. Transfer office paid them. Twenty five percent up to twenty five percent of the value. I want to send. The person didn't have to risk their lives to go to the trend to the official transfer office. And get the money right. And then after that did he convert that money etcetera and the money is stays on their phone. The crypto stays on their phone and the government. That's that's another aspect if you ask any haitian you said you you tell any haitian joe. Enter tired of that dollar fifty. Didn't we xactly what you're talking about. Because the government of haiti is charging us each that. We send money to haiti. Did charge us a dollar fifty of additional tax. Nobody knows where money's going so we're sick and tired of paying the government for the right to feed our families families there. This is why crypto is such an enormous revolution economic revolution. That will help haitians over there to free. Themselves from the economic oppression. Totally understand it. You literally. it's you're doing a pure. it's pure money. There's no there's nobody else. Getting in there and taking their cut in why should the exactly and by the way they all so much money that they play with the with the currency over there right. They can buy american dollars. Sal american dollars whenever they want to so. The population is always Kidnapped by the situation. We are hostage so when we have little haiti coin. Our goal is to distribute by september seventh k. We have about a month. This to butte fifty thousand little haiti gwen to fifty thousand youth. And haiti why do we wanna do that. Because we want peace you to have an learn about cryptocurrency and also be a bridge to us that are here if you wanna send value to haiti so we can send it directly to their cellphone in his one. Key to understand about haiti. The median age and haiti is twenty four years old. It's a very young nation. Sixty one percent of haitians are under twenty five years old. That is ten years from now. Instead of if it stays the same it will still be a thirty four years old real nation when you know that europe. The i think it's a sixty four percent of europe is over sixty four years old. That is there is hope this one in hope there is a future always have to do is to equip them with the proper tools in order for them to the able light. We did back in the time to be able to start trading with americans that wants to help the best way to help. Haiti is not to send money. The best way is to send crypto and my mission is to make it easy for anybody to send crypto to haiti when but the way that we do it. I'm tired. I don't like that the like charity what. I don't like charities demand the hand that is giving is always on top..

"I actually want to stay away from thinking about these big historical moments. Because i think there's a way when we talk about haiti we focus on what has become a brief time line of haiti and here are the key moments we need to pay attention to. They tend to be moments of quote unquote. Upheaval you're saying that we cherry pick. Or maybe i suppose tragedy. Pick the news out of haiti. We only turn our lens to the country when there's violence or suffering or a crisis going on and that turn distorts how we view those events. You're a writer.

"Supremacy of the day could not allow there to be an independent black nation. The bulk of the nineteenth century. The us tried to isolate or ignore haiti. It only recognize haiti in eighteen. Sixty two which is you know more than half a century. After the actually won its independence. The french the former colonial country involved in the matter only recognize haiti in eighteen. Twenty five but they did so only after the military pressure. They forced the haitians to accept paying for their freedom. Haiti was required to pay france today. About twenty one billion dollars and to pay off that debt. It took them more than eighty years was the only time where the loser of award demands ransom for the winner. Haiti is the poorest country hemisphere because not despite for an intervention. The slaveholders punished haiti for their role in ending slavery. I kind of indemnity. That many experts stories believe permanently enfeebled katie's development for decades thereafter. Haiti only able to pay off its debt to france for its freedom in the twentieth century so from its inception. Haiti was saddled by kind of burden of history placed on it by these western powers. This history got even more complicated in one thousand fifteen. That is lenin. President woodrow wilson sent. Us marines to haiti as part of this effort to control haiti's political and financial interests. And this is the troubling precedent. Right the last time a haitian president was assassinated was in nineteen fifteen and that precipitated a political crisis which saw us troops go into the country. Prop up a kind of client regime and remain from nineteen fifteen to nineteen thirty four nineteen year occupation. That lasted almost as long as the current. Us presence and of coniston. But very few americans think about it or remember it when they think about their own history and their own committed war efforts. The us occupation installed lighter skin elite. It's made the us treasury fiduciary controller of the haitian treasury nation. National bank was ruled by the military end by citibank and there was a brutal counterinsurgency carried out by the us. At the same time you had major financiers. From new york's wall street's go about consolidating. The haitian economy for american interests a major efforts in the early twentieth century period of american imperium in the caribbean and in central america all sorts of american interventions in that region. Then it's a history that we don't often think about anymore and what kind of affected that almost twenty year occupation have on haiti going forward while it's now part of just a long history of intervention trauma Misdeeds mistakes haiti went on to have of course rather turbulent rest of his twentieth century most notably under the dynasty dynasty of delays who were kleptocrats murderous leaders. They were anti-communist so they were propped up by the us for quite some time if you fast forward to the nineteen ninety s where the us intervened on behalf of the democratically elected leader. Joan bitar steed. That was another moment where the us thought it was coming in to salvage and help and redeem the the haitian public and bolster is democracy. They didn't quite turn out that way at the same time. The clinton administration forced haiti to drop tariffs on american agricultural imports and as a result essentially played a role that bill clinton has since apologized for in state ing the haitian agricultural sector especially its rice farmers. So they're all sorts of political economic legacies linger. Of course haiti's problems are not only foreign imposed but at the same time you do have a pretty significant groundswell of haitian activists and civil society figures. Cry out for their voices and their ideas and their solutions get prioritized in whatever takes place in the coming months. I was find it really interesting. That these eras of history like the haitian revolution and how the us reacted to that or the fact that the us occupied haiti for almost two decades. The fact that we as a country forget about those parts of history. I think shape how we see haiti now. That people are very quick to write it off as chaotic or dysfunctional or just endemically troubled but that we don't really take responsibility as a country for our role in that absolutely. That's the kind of central tension when thinking through what happens next in that yes. Haiti is troubled. Country it's a country that needs all sorts of practical assistance at this point. But at the same time you cannot approach it as this place that you will come and redeem and save. Because haiti is a part of your at the american story is well. It casts a shadow on the american narrative. Its own independence and freedom and in the present day you have a major haitian american diaspora that is vibrant and vocal part of the american society. And rather than seeing this crisis as taking place in this benighted hopeless place that it's it's part of a shared hemispheric story that america does have to have some responsibility. And do you think that the way we talk about. Haiti is racist in interpreting. The we there you'll yes. It is racist. It's racist basic terms not the role that white supremacy in global racial capitalism has played in destroying haiti but also in ways in which this quote unquote superiority. That we're living in is built on literally the death of enslaved laborers you call it failed state Resistant to progress as david brooks have. You can look at french ambassador libra. It's a tragic country. I mean these are. These are discourses that are meant to make white majority society settler societies or former colonial societies. Feel good about ourselves. Yes i think there is a very real argument to make. The the approach will view that has dominated. American thinking about. Haiti is shaped by racial tropes. And this is kind of Cemented american understanding and thinking about haiti. You had then. Senator joe biden in the mid nineties seeing in a tv broadcast that as far as america's concerned it would make a difference of haiti's sank into the bottom of the ocean. God thing to save. Haiti just quietly sunk into the caribbean or rose up three hundred feet. It wouldn't matter a whole world. What does that mean. And why is it okay to think that way about a country. Haiti and not say other parts of the world where there are more explicit geostrategic american interests. It sounds like there's so much to be worried about right now in haiti. I'm wondering if there's anything that people are finding comfort in her anything that people feel hopeful about. If you come to haiti one thing you will hear alert. People talk about is the haitian with religion in its history. But i think it's symbolic as you have all these people with different.
