President Trump triggered all of the lie-berals yesterday by asking why we are bringing people into the US from “shithole nations.” And this morning they are STILL going off! Why even Anderson Cooper came to tears over Trump’s question, poor baby. Quick! Someone get the cream puffs and teddy bears for these people.
FACT is there are shithole nations on this planet and one of the biggest shithole nations is in fact Haiti. These people live in horrendous conditions primarily because of their long, long history of corrupt governments who are interested in only padding their own pockets and who care nothing for improving the welfare of their own people. Slums are everywhere, the people are uneducated, health conditions leave much to be desired, and,basically, the corrupt government broke the spirit of the people long, long ago. The best thing that could happen in Haiti is for the people to rise up and violently overthrow their government and start over! They need a leader who actually gives a shit about them and who is willing to do whatever it takes to improve the conditions of the people instead of seeking to enrich himself. Poverty in Haiti is horrendous as are health conditions. Education, where it exists, leaves much to be desired and food is scarce in many places on the island. The people are dirt poor, have no vision, and their spirits are broken.
Haiti has consistently been ranked as being among the most corrupt and crime riddled nations on the planet! It’s estimated that President “Baby Doc” Duvalier and his wife stole over $504 million dollars from the treasury between 1971 and 1986. The police force is corrupt and the army was disbanded due to mass corruption. Former President Aristide also helped himself and stole millions from the treasury earmarked for natural disaster relief and rebuilding programs and he was also involved in….you guessed it…the illegal drug trade! Pyramid schemes are popular in the country and it’s estimated Haitians have lost millions in such schemes. Murder rates are high although low when compared to other nations in the region, surprisingly. It is one of the world’s poorest nations and is THE poorest nation in the Americas. Poverty, gross corruption, poor infrastructures, and lack of healthcare and education mark the country. Haiti got more than $4 billion dollars in foreign aid from 1990-2003 with the USA giving them $1.5 billion which mostly went into corrupt government officials pockets!
T-shirt manufacturing accounts for 40% of the economy with pullovers and sweatshirts accounting for 29% of the economy. If the truth were known the illegal drug trade likely accounts for MOST of the economy! Yes, Haiti IS a SHITHOLE nation all the way around!!
El Salvador is yet another shithole country! Located in Central America just south of Mexico historically it has had an economy based on farming. Coffee was one of the primary crops back in the colonial period of this nation’s history which in the early 20th century made up 90% of the country’s export earnings. In recent years El Salvador has tried to diversify its economy and expand its manufacturing industry. In 2001 this nation axed its currency and began using the US dollar. El Salvador has a history of political and economic instability dotted (frequently) with revolts, coups, and a succession of corrupt leaders. It has a high poverty rate and is notorious for being a haven for high crime and inequality. Frankly, the largest “business” El Salvador has going at present is the illegal drug manufacture and trade industry!
One of its more famous leaders was Jose Napoleon Duarte-Fuentes. He was supported during the Reagan Administration by the US and he, Duarte, occupied the presidency during the worst of the civil war in that country. His tenure was marked by brutal violence, human rights violations, and massacres of civilians by the military and police. Death squads were also linked to them and to Duarte! And El Salvador played a role in the famous Iran-Contra controversy during Reagan’s tenure as POTUS. US Army Colonel Oliver North testified before Congress and spilled the beans on that controversy including the CIA using USAF planes to bring illegal drugs into the US from… you guessed it…. El Salvador et al!!!
Many years of economic and political instability have made El Salvador into a SHITHOLE nation where poverty and crime are rampant and where the spirits of the people are broken. People here have NO HOPE! They live in gross poverty and sanitation in the nation leaves MUCH to be desired. Amnesty International has drawn attention to several arrests of police officers charged with unlawful killings, missing children, the gross failure of law enforcement to properly investigate and prosecute crimes, and the horrendous poverty in the nation. The country is prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes and official corruption is beyond rampant! In contrast, in Colonial times El Salvador had a thriving economy and export industry. It was once a paradise, according to some, but is currently a SHITHOLE just as President Trump says and the conditions in El Salvador PROVE it beyond ANY doubt!!
By the way, a look at the current economy of El Salvador reveals that its highest export is T-SHIRTS!! Yes you read that right! T-SHIRTS to the tune of 16% of its economy!! Sweaters and sweatshirt manufacturing account for 3.8% while coffee exports account for 5.1% of the economy which is a drop in the bucket compared to what the coffee export industry was in colonial times. Additionally, IF the TRUTH were told you would find that the largest part of the economy of this nation is the illegal drug trade as is the case with MOST nations in Central America thanks to their two primary “customers” known as the United State of America and Europe!!
Somalia in East Africa is yet another SHITHOLE nation and there’s no doubt about that!! This nation has been ravaged by ongoing civil war and conflict for decades now and is a haven for both pirates and terrorists. Yes I said PIRATES!! It’s economy is mostly based on livestock, money transfer companies (read drug and terrorism money laundering), and telecommunications. Few resources are made available for healthcare and, again, poverty is rampant in this SHITHOLE nation! The average life expectancy for males is about 47 years old. According to the World Health Organization in 2005 an astounding 97.9% of women and girls in this shithole nation were forced to undergo female genital mutilation!! Access to education is low and it’s primarily males who are educated when education is available. This is a Muslim nation and women are basically nothing more than property! This nation has no regard whatsoever for women’s rights or gender equality and being gay in Somalia is a death warrant, guaranteed! Chaos is a hallmark of Somalia and if this isn’t a SHITHOLE country then what is???
So, in short, YES there are shithole countries on this planet and most share the same M.O. So IF Trump said what it’s being claimed he said in that WH meeting yesterday then he’s absolutely right in his comments. Why are we bringing people into the US from these shitholes? Why aren’t we helping them in their own countries to improve their lives and eliminate their grossly corrupt governments? Why aren’t we helping them to develop industries that will give their people good incomes?
But…then….alas President Trump is claiming on Twitter that he never made the comment about shithole nations! To be fair I must point out that some of the LEGAL immigrants brought to the US from these shithole nations should NOT be sent back as their lives are in danger and they would most likely be killed should we return SOME of them to their homelands. That would be because some of these immigrants have worked with the US DEA, FBI, etc going after the drug cartels and criminal rackets. But OTHERS should be sent back because they are illegally in the US and contribute nothing to America. They simply SUCK off our welfare system! It’s time America face the truth. IF Trump made the shithole nations comment yesterday then he simply spoke what MANY Americans have been thinking for a long, long time! And the Lie-berals? They can go to hell frankly! They are NOT the majority in America even though they pretend to be and they do a great job at that because they control the MSM. But still the majority of Americans are NOT liberals or leftists and THAT is what will eventually save our nation and our own people from the COMMUNIST agenda trying to conquer our REPUBLIC today!!
