I sat down to talk to Haitian activist Theova Milfort, who recently passed out in front of the White House during his six day hunger strike.
Milfort was protesting for Barack Obama to visit his country Haiti and to apologize publicly for what the Clintons did to Haiti before he leaves office.
Theova was rushed to the hospital after passing out in front of the White House during a campaign for Barack Obama to visit Haiti before he leaves office.
Theova expressed that he wanted the betterment of his people, especially the youth. Theova runs an organization that helps the youth and other struggling Haitian residents to help get his people out of poverty. He spoke about how the Clintons raped his country of it’s resources and destroyed his country’s economy after the Haitian earthquake. Speaking about the Clintons mining deal, he called it an economic crime against Haiti.
“After 50 years to get a permit for Tony Rodham, to export gold in Haiti less than 2% of royalties, this is insane this is actually an economic crime against Haiti,” Theova said.
Theova additionally talked about the history of slavery in Haiti and Haiti’s history that influenced the U.S. and other countries, and how the Haitians were the first independent black nation in the world. This is a major reason he feels that Barack Obama should go over to Haiti before he leaves office, being the first U.S. African American president.
“We the people of Haiti have a slogan shut down Haiti to rebuild it,” Theova said.
“We beat up the first army the french and Napoléon army and we declared that Haiti was free and the first black nation in the world. Back in the 1820’s African American’s were in Haiti fleeing from racism and misery and slavery in America. Then back to 1920-30s-40s-50s-60s there was still slavery going on in the USA, then in 1979 some fifty hundred soldiers went to Sabadah to fight against the British for independence.
Then back to 1960’s we saw that blacks weren’t allowed to share the same bathrooms. Slavery didn’t end until Rosa Parks stood up and said I won’t give up my seat for you. A big time blow, that got inspired from the Haitian revolution because we are the first to say “Black Lives Matter” and were the first ones to say All lives matter. We helped South America get independence Brazil, Argentina, Panama etc.,” Theova said.
Theova also talked about how Haitians are seen as unskilled workers and paid less despite working for years for a manufacturing corporation.
“The main problem is the wages aren’t good and the government is taking wages out of those wages and they give only 1,000 – 3,000 people jobs.”
We also discussed the corruption of the current Haitian government, opening the market for foreign businessmen while selling out their own people.
Theova told me how it’s been an uphill battle, constantly facing hardships in trying to get his message across to help his county.
Thoeova helps run the non-profit organization FTMDhaiti.org, which provides micro-loans to help Haitians. Theova added “handouts don’t work in Haiti, we say that the best way to help people is teach them how to catch a fish not give them a fish daily, we do financial training, how to run a small business, how to run it, how to deal with customer service, how to maintain stocks and we give them a small amount of money to open up or add to their existing businesses.”
If you can afford it and want to help out the people of Haiti, you can donate and reach Theova through FTMDhaiti.org. Stay tuned to We Are Change.

Who was the single vote for keeping Obama’s veto you ask? None other then Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.
The White House responded to the vote, calling it “embarrassing.”
“I would venture to say that this is the single most embarrassing thing that the United States Senate has done, possibly, since 1983.” – Obama spokesman Josh Earnest.
Obama warned in a letter to Senate leaders last week that if the bill were to pass it would allow not only victims of terrorism in the U.S. to sue foreign countries, but also allow foreign countries to sue the U.S. military, and intelligence agencies as well as possibly subject U.S. government assets to seizure.
“The consequences of JASTA could be devastating to the Department of Defense and its service members — and there is no doubt that the consequences could be equally significant for our foreign affairs and intelligence communities,” – Obama wrote.
In February, Secretary of State John Kerry warned the Senate that the bill would put America in legal jeopardy — if the U.S. weakens sovereign immunity provisions, other countries could do the same, opening the door to new lawsuits against America’s government, corporations, and citizens saying –
“The 9/11 bill would expose the United States of America to lawsuits and take away our sovereign immunity and create a terrible precedent.” – John Kerry.
A float at the annual Tri-State Parade in Amarillo, Texas has sparked controversy, with an image that is quickly going viral through social media.
The float shows both President Obama and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a cage. The float was organized by a group called Stars and Bars that rode alongside the Confederate Riders of America.
The float was made of planks of wood and metal and accompanied by a “Make America Great Again” banner that a person on the back of the float held up supporting Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Not everyone agreed with the political message. One local resident, Rodney Darnes, expressed his disagreement by calling the float racist and sexist.
“A lot of people in the black and Hispanic community are saying, why would you put a black man in a cage? The fact that Hillary is in the float only sets the women’s movement further back.” – said Rodney Darnes.
The President of the Confederate Riders Of America responded to the backlash from the float by saying the float’s intentions were not racist, but to send a political message.
“It was in no way racist, there was a sign right next to them that said ‘Hillary for Prison 2016.’ We had no racial intentions at all,” said Michael Bateman, the President of the Confederate Riders of America.
A poll posted on the KXXV Channel 10 news website shows about 60 percent of those who voted did not find the float offensive compared to 40% who found the float sexist or racist.
Do you find this float from the Tri-State Fair offensive?
It is astounding that 40% of viewers could find such a simple message racist or sexist. The float has everything to do with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama committing various crimes and human rights violations and being held accountable for them to the fullest extent of the law – just like any other citizen. If you break the law, behind bars is where you belong. A few users on Twitter agreed, recognizing the float is basic First Amendment freedom of speech, adding that both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama should be in jail and that they were proud of the float.
“How exactly is this float offensive? That’s an example of the minimum they both deserve! Proud of that float!” Wesley Winters, wrote on Twitter.
“No, it’s not racist. Freedom of speech. Barack Obama should go to jail and so should Hillary. They are both crooks,” wrote Jonathan Mullins.
Some websites deceptively tried to edit out Hillary Clinton’s presence on the float, showing only Barack Obama behind bars, turning it into a race argument and not one about criminal actions.
The recently agreed to U.S./Russia truce deal wass good news for the people of Syria, as it raises hopes that future peace talks are actually going to have something to work with. Equally, it’s bad news for Saudi Arabia, the U.S. military industrial complex and the blood-drenched coalition in serious violation of international protocols are still financing and arming various terrorist outfits in Syria.
Unfortunately, and as usual, the new ceasefire has not amount to anything, as many foreign-backed terrorist groups, including so-called “moderate” rebels, will be violating the deal despite having negotiated it in the first place.
The US Syrian Envoy Michael Ratney warned those who continued to mingle with al-Nusra in its rebranded Ahar al-Sham form would have to deal with “dire consequences” for doing so. However, the Pentagon and others have proxies that can not only stage attacks, but fake attacks on themselves to claim Damascus broke the truce.
For example, at least 22 terrorist groups, mostly affiliated to the Free Syrian Army, announced that they would not abide by the truce agreement that went into effect on Monday night.
The first case of ceasefire breaching happened in the Southwestern districts of Aleppo city, when Jeish al-Fatah terrorists opened fire at government positions in the military academy buildings. On Tuesday, terrorists once again violated the temporary nationwide ceasefire brokered by Russia and the US after they launched mortar attacks on government positions in the Northern districts of Aleppo city.
Moreover, the colonial campaign to divide and rule Syria still tops the agenda for Washington and its client states. Just like in Iraq and Yemen, their key policy in the so-called Syria ceasefire is not to end the bloodshed and save the people. It’s just a shift in tactics.
The regime changers want to attain through ceasefire what they couldn’t in the battlefield: occupy and divide Syria; degrade the Axis of Resistance (Iran, Syria and Hezbollah) through a combination of international pressure and internal dispute over the terms of ceasefire or any future peace accord; continue Special Forces operations and drone strikes; resupply rebel forces, and create no-fly-zone over the Syrian-Turkish border areas on the pretext of humanitarian assistance.
Despite their assertions to the contrary, the new ceasefire has nothing to do with calming the violence and allowing humanitarian access to the besieged areas. The goal is to give rebels a breather, provide them new weapons and equipment, and maintain the continuity of the war.
Past truce efforts are a reminder that the dirty war on Syria will continue after the 10-day pause, as the United States has no interest in ending hostilities. President Obama’s goal in negotiating this ceasefire is less about relief for Syrian citizens and more about winning support internationally. It is his last straw in trying to entrench the status quo and save his face before he leaves office.
