Five years ago, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton imposed a criminal right-wing regime on the militarily occupied people of Haiti. Now the U.S. and its allies have rigged yet another Haitian presidential election. “The CIA and US government have been busy creating new gangsters, terrorists and drug dealers in Haiti, as they’ve done in Jamaica, Syria, Venezuela and Libya to serve U.S. goals and interests.”

“It's time for the Haiti authorities to justly apply the wishes of the people.”
"We will burn the country down before we allow ourselves back into a US banana republic slavery with Jovenel Moise," say the protestors to the Obama-backed November 20, 2016 electoral fraud. -- YouTube
Washington and the CIA works perpetually to put in a right-wing president and parliament in Haiti. They want Haitians who are like they are -- well versed criminals, assassins, money launderers, drug peddlers and gun-runners. Folks with no moral compass who make no bones about detaining and murdering dissenters and whistle blowers. Putting in a criminal parliament to validate laws, written in Washington, is the sole purpose of the current blackmailable Haiti parliament who come under the US-CIA rigged elections of August 9, 2015 and November 20, 2016.

All the Haiti resistance sectors to the US-Obama attempt to steal the November 20, 2016 elections and install another Hillary Clinton puppet president in Haiti have come together -- Moise Jean Charles, Jude Celestin, Maryse Narcisse.
This coalition against US-imposed fake elections to install more dictatorship and occupation are outraged at the newest Obama-backed electoral fraud. They denounce the Haiti billionaires, who along with the Obama administration, mock the Haiti voters by selecting the right wing candidate, Jovenel Moise, who is under investigation for money laundering, as their next Haiti puppet. The protestors say that the PHTK Martelly replica is imposed by the imperialist to further enrich the global oligarchs, plunder Haiti and keep the population in perpetual poverty. They say no: no to subjugation and exploitation. No, to the new “Banana Man.”
“They denounce the Haiti billionaires, who along with the Obama administration, mock the Haiti voters.”
But the two centuries of American destructive apartheid and neocolonialism continues just as this Haiti generation, like the ones before, resist. The morally challenged, super wealthy families, both in Haiti and in the international community, continue to terrorize the poor and outgunned.
"We will never agree for foreigners to give us our president, down with Martelly and Jovenel Moise --Haiti protestors, December 16, 2016
If there’s no respect for the Haitian people’s votes and voice, the Washington-backed Jovenel Moise will be shoved down their throat to rule with a new Parliament filled with criminals and DEA suspected drug-dealers such as Guy Philippe, who is said to have won a Senate seat. The CIA and US government have been busy creating new gangsters, terrorists and drug dealers in Haiti, as they’ve done in Jamaica, Syria, Venezuela and Libya to serve U.S. goals and interests. The ruthless imperialists, their top inbred bloodline families, media minions and neoliberal economic academia still have spiteful visions of a plantation Haiti; a Banana Republic run by a US puppet president called the “Banana man”— their white pearl, again. It sounds like twilight science fiction but it’s real.
The Haitian people disqualified Jovenel Moise from the race for president 2015. It's time for the Haiti authorities to justly apply the wishes of the people and the laws of sovereignty, self-determination, decency and civility. No criminals and electoral fraudsters should hold office in Haiti.
