Dominican Police Set-up Checkpoint to Arrest Citizen Wearing Hat with Cannabis Leaf as Irregular Immigrants Move About Freely

The police in the Dominican Republic continue damaging their credibility with those in the diaspora that hope to one day be able to return to a country that even remotely resembles a free and progressive state composed of ethnic Dominicans. 

Although most sensible Dominicans are busy calling for the police to help the military round-up foreigners who entered the country illegally, the authorities are instead busy wasting time and jeopardizing the future of otherwise law-abiding citizens.

According to Noticias SIN, police in the city of Bani set-up a "preventive checkpoint," stopping any citizen they saw fit, but not bothering to enforce immigration law. 

Although intense pressure from groups such as George Soros' Open Society have led to the Dominican government basically halting the deportation of undocumented individuals living on its soil, even as The Samaritan Foundation, a Canadian NGO, builds two city-sized slums with thousands of newly-arrived, undocumented Haitian migrants, there is little pressure raining down on the government for harassing citizens for what are otherwise free speech violations.

So far, the evidence seems to indicate that hats with cannabis insignias only reduce the risk of skin cancer on the face, while also increasing a rider's ability to see under the harsh sunlight of the Caribbean, thereby increasing road safety. 

Since cannabis is not widely-smoked in the Dominican Republic, there is a very real probability that the individual arrested did not even know what he was "promoting."

Dominican law 50-88 makes it a punishable act to promote controlled substances, even though cannabis leaves are not smokable. Perplexingly, however, there is no law criminalizing the spread of cholera by those who have illegally entered the country.

An individual wearing a hat on a motorcycle does not represent an imminent threat to the stability of the Republic or the survival of the Dominican people as a distinct group with its own culture and heritage, but a pregnant woman crossing the border and giving birth for free in a hospital does. 

Many citizens believe that instead of wasting resources on things that don't threaten the future of the Republic, authorities could better protect the border.

Supreme Court to Investigate Congressman Linked to Florida Arms Trafficking Ring

Dominican Representative Néstor Muñoz, who was linked to the trafficking of heavy weaponry into the Dominican Republic, is to be investigated by a magistrate of the Supreme Court of the Dominican Republic, according to the large-circulation daily Diario Libre.

Mr. Muñoz, speaking out in a session of the island's Congress, claimed that he had never visited Florida -- the state from where the weapons shipment to which he is linked was sent -- and asked the Chamber of Deputies (the DR's House of Representatives) that they investigate him.

Lucía Medina, President of the House, hushed Mr. Muñoz' request, claiming that it was in the hands of criminal authorities, subsequently shutting down the session of the House. 

Rep. José Laluz, responding angrily to Ms. Medina ending the session of Congress early, accused her of being a dictator, a job which she apparently shares with her brother, the current President of the Republic. 

The manner in which Ms. Medina ended the latest session of the House once questions were raised as to the speed and way in which her brother's Ministry of Justice has gone after a member of the opposition has fed speculation that Mr. Muñoz is the convenient patsy for the illegal funneling of weapons by individuals linked to the upper echelons of the current ruling party. 

Given the notorious nature of the Dominican judicial system, it is unlikely that Mr. Muñoz will be convicted of anything; the whole objective here, some say, is to distract from Dominican government complacency as Washington arms the next dictator of Haiti. 

Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Haiti's former democratically-elected president and subsequent victim of a US-backed coup, is currently campaigning for his political party, with Guy Philippe, the CIA hitman responsible for taking him down, publicly claiming that he has nothing to lose anymore and that he'll fight should he not be given a seat in the Senate, which confers much-needed immunity from prosecution from domestic indictments as well as from extradition to the US for drug crimes.

There's a group arming and acquiring uniforms on the island of Hispaniola; they seemingly have military objectives in mind, and there already appears to be a scapegoat to be blamed when the right spark sets off a prolonged, brutal conflict.

Dominican Citizens Decry Sovereignty Usurpation as Canadian-built Settlements Sprawl to Resemble Large City Slums

The large-circulation Dominican daily El Nacional just today published a scathing report on the unabated growth seen in two illegally-built settlements in the province of Puerto Plata, located on the north west of the Dominican Republic, next to the Haitian border.

The two settlements were built by the The Samaritan Foundation, founded by Elio Madonia, a Canadian citizen whose website refers to him as a "retired Toronto businessman."

According to his website, Mr. Madonia received a revelation of sorts in 1988 during his visit to the Dominican Republic. It seems that The Lord told Mr. Madonia to build homes for thousands of poor individuals in the Dominican Republic, something which he has apparently accomplished, even if those he is helping are undocumented new arrivals.

El Nacional reports that there are thousands of undocumented immigrants living in the two settlements built by Mr. Madonia's organization, with absolutely no sanitation system to prevent the spread of cholera, currently raging in Haiti.

Despite hundreds of Dominican citizens losing their lives to the occasional cholera cases imported from Haiti, authorities have done nothing to regulate the flow of people in and out of the two parallel societies built by The Samaritan Foundation in Puerto Plata. There are no doctors in the Samaritan settlements, meaning that the outbreak of a disease relegated to the pages of Dominican history could start among its residents and spread into the mainstream population, making containment nearly impossible.

According to El Nacional, the two illegal settlements serve as springboards for Haitians to migrate within the Dominican Republic, with many moving to Punta Cana and other touristy areas, leaving their homes behind to be rented by new arrivals. 

El Nacional's report has stirred up emotions among Dominican netizens, with some decrying that the Dominican Republic is no longer a sovereign nation, and that the government's inability to prevent a Canadian NGO from importing thousands of the Western Hemisphere's poorest and least-educated individuals into a country with a different language and culture will create fertile ground for future conflict between the residents of these parallel societies and the mainstream Dominican population. 

Some netizens have commented that perhaps the Dominican government wants a future conflict within the country, since the longer these illegal settlements are allowed to stand, the more difficult it will be to remove the individuals residing there.

There are many more small towns throughout the Dominican Republic like those built by The Samaritan Foundation, and in each one of them the seed of ethnic conflict is being planted, with the next financial recession almost certain to guarantee the mass spilling of blood. 

Open Conspiracy: Haitian Elite Want to Export 200,000 Migrants Per Year In Order to "Alleviate Poverty"

In years past, certain open border proponents would ridicule "far-right" Dominicans for alleging that the Haitian ruling elite were heavily involved in a conspiracy to passively invade the Dominican Republic. The preachers for open borders, however, no longer have the guts to criticize Dominican nationalists, since Haiti's own newspapers are now openly suggesting that the country export 200,000 citizens per year, with the hope that it can reduce the number of poor in the nation and increase remittances. 

Dominican hospital at the border; soon to be every hospital? El Nacional
The large-circulation Haitian daily, Le Nouvelliste, recently called for 200,000 people to leave Haiti, with the Dominican Republic serving as the most obvious relocation destination. 

As it currently stands, there are already more Haitians in the Dominican Republic per km² than there are "Brazilians in Brazil, Argentinians in Argentina, and Americans in North America," with the guaranteed certainty that Haitian emigration at a level as called for by Le Nouvelliste will result in the demographic death of the Dominican people in less than two decades. 

The population of the Dominican Republic is expected to peak at 12 million in the 2070s -- rising from its current 11 million -- after which point it is expected to begin a natural decline. The arrival of 2 million people over the next decade will completely derail every single long-term infrastructure plan which the Dominican government has in place, a derailment which will be exacerbated by the significantly-higher birth rate of newly-arrived Haitian nationals.

The United States, French Guiana, Suriname, the Bahamas, and multiple other nations have not only closed their borders to new Haitian arrivals, but they have also just started deporting those living in their territories in an irregular manner.

In criticizing the Obama administration's decision to begin deporting Haitian nationals who would have until recently been protected from deportation due to a hiatus established just shorty after the devastating 2010 earthquake, the oldest Dominican daily, Listin Diario, wrote that Mr. Obama was placing the Dominican Republic under grave danger. 

This past summer, the Dominican government was slated to begin deporting 142,000 people, mostly for failure to pay the 300 dollar residence permit renewal fee, but President Danilo Medina decided at the last hour that Haiti had not recovered sufficiently from the 2010 earthquake to handle the mass deportation of its nationals from another country.

The United Nations peacekeeping force in Haiti has just been given its last 6-month mandate, after which point the stability of the decade-plus failed state will be left up to its 13,000 police officers, a monumental endeavor for which they may not be completely up to the task. 

The hardcore criminals the United States will soon start sending to Haiti will simply cross the border and get jobs in the DR, hiding among the stream of the hundreds of thousands of destitute people which the Port-Au-Prince elite are openly plotting to ship abroad.

Future Dominican call center employee?
Among these criminals will be men like Jean Jacques, who served 15 year in jail for murder and should have been deported to Haiti, but the Haitian government refuses to recognize him as one of its citizens. 

Mr. Jacques would later go on to butcher a Connecticut woman, much in the same way that a thousand other Jean Jacques will butcher in the Dominican Republic, with the Haitian government also refusing to recognize its citizens, many of whom have recently started pretending to be from the Congo in order to get preferential treatment when traveling across the Americas.

The elite of most countries aspire to export advanced technological gadgets or great works of art, but it seems that the Haitian elite aspire to export misery and poverty, with the hope that it can solve the country's overpopulation crisis. Haiti may indeed lift itself from its current status as a failed state, but it will remain the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere even if it exports 2 million citizens over the next decade. In the process, however, the Dominican Republic will be knocked down a few notches, and could soon see itself bankrupt in the dark like Puerto Rico and crime-ridden like Nicaragua.
