The Republic of Haiti is a Caribbean country. It was the first independent nation in Latin America and the first black-led republic in the world. Despite these facts, Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. On January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti and devastated the capital city of Port-au-Prince. Reportedly, more than 150000 people were killed and many buildings were destroyed and damaged in the quake. RT correspondent Aleksandr Luchaninov visited Haiti after the tragedy and here is his report.

While Bill Clinton was Governor of Arkansas. Bill and Hillary presided over the biggest cocaine importation program in US history. During that time they amassed a lot of enemies. And so as it goes with all mafia families, people started suspiciously dropping like flies. Many deaths were ruled suicides even though there were five bullet holes in the corpse or even if there was a single blast to the back of the head! Whether the Haiti earthquake was HAARP or not. One has to wonder why the United States and the UN appears to have been getting ready for this disaster long b4 it happened. The US government plans to expropriate and demolish the homes of hundreds of Haiti's most impoverished by expanding the UN military occupation force's outpost in the giant shantytown of Cite Soleil. The infamous US government contractor DynCorp, a quasi-official arm of the Pentagon and the CIA, is responsible for expanding the base named "Konbit pou lape" (Get Together for Peace), which houses the soldiers of the UN Mission to Stabilize Haiti (MINUSTAH) in the most bullet-ridden battleground of the foreign military occupation that began after US Special Forces kidnapped President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his wife from their home and flew them into exile on Feb. 29, 2004. www.haitiaction.net ...and if that isn't enough, right after the Aristide Coup the US went strait to work building a brand new Green Zone Compound.

And the UN Security Council is expected to approve the deployment of 3500 extra UN troops.

Haiti Earthquake & the HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) Induction Magnetometer - you will now see 3 images based on a time-frequency spectrogram, which shows the frequency content of signals recorded by the HAARP Induction Magnetometer. This instrument, provided by the University of Tokyo, measures temporal variations in the geomagnetic field in the ULF (ultra-low frequency) range of 0-5 Hz. The spectrogram images are produced by computing the PSD (power spectral density) of successive 102.4-second segments of timeseries data, and plotting these spectra as color/intensity slices along a 24-hour scale. Audio files are created by converting the raw 10 Hz sampled waveform (Bx channel) to a wav file at 44.1 kHz (resulting in a playback speedup of 4410 times), and then compressing the 1.7MB wav file to a 150KB mp3 file.

The extent of the devastation is still unclear but there are fears thousands of people may have died.
