Legacy of 1804 Haiti News and Blog Review #LOF1804

Apologies for not holding a show last week at the planned time. I have been testing newer, better sound options and was in limbo between two such options neither of which was working properly at our usual meeting time last Friday.

I did not announce tonight's show for fear that the new sound system was still not working. But I held the show and everything worked out fine. The resulting audio is below. It is now in High Fidelity, which I am very happy with. I was receiving routine complaints that my voice was too low in the former call -in format. Now I am using BlogTalkRadio HiFi Beta with a brand new Yeti mic. The audio is satisfactory and much better than before but can still use some minor perfecting so I will keep experimenting.

Tonight I discussed two articles:

  1. Clinton E-Mails Point to US Intervention in 2010 Haiti Elections | Haiti: Relief and Reconstruction Watch | Blogs | Publications | The Center for Economic and Policy Research http://cepr.net/blogs/haiti-relief-and-reconstruction-watch/clinton-e-mails-point-to-us-intervention-in-2010-haiti-elections via @ceprdc
  2. Trump to meet in Miami with skeptical Haitian Americans | Miami Herald http://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/election/donald-trump/article101796122.htmlvention-in-2010-haiti-election

The first is significant because we have held several shows here arguing that Hillary Clinton was instrumental in stealing the 2010 election for Martelly. At that time our sources were non-American. But now we find proof of this in leaked Hillary emails, namely in comments made by one Laura Graham, COO of the Clinton Foundation.

The second is interesting because Trump is doing outreach in the Haitian community in Florida that many lobbied for Sanders to do but to no avail. That omission on the part of the Sanders campaign was disappointing in light of the fact that Sanders was allegedly having trouble making inroads with the black electorate. I say allegedly because many believe Democratic primary results were in fact rigged.
