Whether voodoo or Roman Catholic, the priests of Haiti teach the people to sin, promote idolatry and worship of the creature instead of the Creator, and for their own personal gain (whether it’s financial, sexual, or otherwise) keep the people in gross thick darkness. Jeremiah 29:8-9: For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.
The voodoo priests don’t pretend to speak in the name of God. They and their rituals have a hopeless darkness to them comparable to the condition Saul found himself in, when he consulted with the witch of Endor in 1 Samuel 28. But the Roman Catholic whores pretend they are speaking in God’s name. They are responsible for the awful condition of Haiti, and the fact that the religious “leaders” of Doomed-america have not one time so much as mentioned that the people of Haiti need to repent of their filthy idolatrous manner of life and get right with God, puts them in as much trouble with God as the priests of Haiti. It is no coincidence that one of those killed in the great earthquake was the archbishop of Port-au-Prince, Msgr. Joseph Serge Miot (pictured here).
Haiti topped the world corruption table in 2006, and remains in the top ten most corrupt countries to this day. A report by the Transparency Institute in 2006 found Haiti was number one in the world, noting that decades of poverty, environmental degradation, violence, instability and dictatorship had left it the country with the least prospect of recovering. See http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/6120522.stm. And see http://www.iiep.unesco.org/fileadmin/user_upload/Research_Highlights_Corruption/statplanet/ showing Haiti is still the tenth most corrupt country in 2009. Foreign cooperation has contributed over 2.6 billion dollars to Haiti since 1984, with little or nothing to show for it. Donors point to rampant corruption in Haiti that has prevented the vast numbers of under privileged people from realizing any benefits from this development aid. The money, in short, goes into the pockets of a few corrupt officials, while the rest of the nation languishes under the wrathful hand of God. (You Doomed-americans are always demanding, “God bless you.” Own this fact: If he can bless you, he can curse you!)
The officials who run the government in Haiti are more interested in lining their own pockets than helping these cursed people, who despite their numbers, and lots of international attention, are incapable of responding in any way to hold the officials responsible. For instance, a report in March 2008 told of food stacking up in the nation’s ports because of “government red tape,” leaving tons of beans, rice and other staples to rot and be devoured by vermin. The report attributed this bureaucratic tangle to a government attempt to clean up a corrupt port system.
Drug trafficking is out of control because those benefiting financially reach to the highest levels. Haiti has been a crossroads for moving Colombian cocaine to the United States for at least 20 years, according to the Miami Herald in 2004. http://www.latinamericanstudies.org/drugs/hospitable.htm. The same story reports that the military junta that overthrew former president Jean-Bertran Aristide, was according to some “basically a narco-coup. The battle was over who is going to control the drug trafficking and the profits of the drug trade.” American officials claim that they are still rooting out drug connections which they describe as a cancer that affected every level of government. Aristide protected a central drug figure, Beaudoin Ketant, and only after considerable pressure from American officials, did he turn him over to drug enforcement agents. American officials say that at least 80 tons of cocaine was shipped through Haiti in the Aristide years, and officials estimate that today at least eight percent of the cocaine shipped from Colombia to Doomed-america still flows through Haiti.
Litigation is still underway to try and recover money Aristide is alleged to have stolen from the millions of dollars of foreign aid. A report in August 2005 found that $2.4 million went directly to charities tied to Aristide and his political party, letting him take political credit for humanitarian works. Also the report said the bulk of $21 million that was pumped into various private firms is unaccounted for. The elaborate scheme by which the money was moved led the reporters to conclude at a minimum Aristide was guilty of money-laundering. In January 2010, IPW reported that the “Justice Department” of Doomed-america was withholding an agreement to share assets seized from Haitian drug traffickers to finance litigation by the Haitian government against Aristide. The claim is that Aristide took hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks from the telecom company IDT. IDT’s former lawyer, Alice Fisher, now heads the Justice Department Criminal Division. Haiti’s officials learned from the best in Doomed-america. Aristide’s actions mirror those of former rulers, including Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier (pictured here), from whom Haiti has tried to recoup funds he is alleged to have stolen since 1986. In 2002 Swiss authorities froze millions, and it took five years for Haiti to present enough evidence from a criminal investigation to convince the Swiss Foreign Ministry to unfreeze the funds. The Swiss Federal Department of Justice ordered Duvalier (pictured here) to return the funds to Haiti on February 12, 2009, but a last minute appeal by Duvalier’s family stalled the process once more.
Today Haitians are dealing with corrupt officials, with poor performance by the current president, corruption scandals, kidnappings, escalating murders, and an ongoing struggle for power. Even though President Préval launched a major offensive against corruption in May 2007, labeling all those who engaged in corruption as traitors to the nation, major corruption cases continue to emerge involving judges, commissioners and members of parliament.
A 2008-2009 report by the United Nations Human Rights office said that arbitrary arrests, unlawful police custody, ill-treatment and excessive use of force continue to be reported out of Haiti. And, that a lack of technical expertise, poor communication, negligence and apparent corruption of judicial authorities, are reportedly the source of numerous unlawful arrests, prolonged pre-trial detention and a low number of court decisions. See http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Countries/LACRegion/Pages/HTSummary0809.aspx.
The judiciary in Haiti consists of four levels: the Court of Cassation, courts of appeal, civil courts, and magistrates’ courts. Judges of the court of Cassation are appointed by the president for 10-year terms. Government prosecutors, appointed by the courts, act in both civil and criminal cases. There are also land, labor, and children’s courts. Military courts function in both military and civilian cases when the constitution is suspended. The legal system is based upon the French Napoleonic Code. Until 1995, the Haitian armed forces controlled law enforcement and public security, even though the constitution called for separation of the police and military. Although the constitution also calls for an independent judiciary, all judges since 1986 have been appointed and removed at the will of the government and political pressures affect the judiciary at all levels.
Though there have been considerable efforts from various outside sources to reform Haiti’s justice system, it has not evolved, and ambiguity between the executive and judicial powers makes it impossible to secure any form of true justice. There is no civil service security for judges, who receive low salaries, which leads to corruption and disinterest in monitoring the conduct of judges. The quality of the lawyers is uneven, because lawyers have not received a uniform legal education, and there is no respect for the organization or set procedures for fairness or due process. Many people in Haiti do not turn to the courts for help, in spite of overwhelming rates of violent and organized crime. Instead, they turn to the informal justice system, practiced by traditional social and religious figures such as the voodoo priests, to settle disputes. Allegedly a plan for reform is to be completed by December 2010, which will call for ethics for judges, special courts for serious crimes, witness protection and better pay for judges. Meanwhile, the level of pressure by the government on the judges to extort outcomes that support their corruption was so intense in 2002 that the lawyers literally held a walk-out in protest against the conditions in which they had to function. Yet the “good” lawyers simply become adept at knowing who to bribe when, which perpetuates the corrupt judiciary. It is a great curse from God when your judges are corrupt. Job 12:17: He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools. 2 Chronicles 19:6-7 And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment. Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.
