Knife-wielding Mugger Tries to Mug Dominican Soldier, is Gunned Down in Broad Daylight

A trio of criminals in the Dominican capital of Santo Domingo attempted to mug a Dominican soldier using a knife, in what resulted in a bloodbath in broad daylight. The incident took place on Duarte Avenue, one of the city's poorer areas, which has in recent years become the scene of frequent muggings. The residents of the area are traumatized to the extent that they're often afraid to use their cell phones in public. 

Two of the muggers managed to escape the scene of the crime after the would-be victim shot one in the chest. Most muggers in the Dominican Republic use motorcycles and carry firearms, indicating that this trio was relatively new to the game. 

Had the muggers succeeded in disarming the would-be victim, it is likely that they would have taken his firearm and thereafter used it to carry out more elaborate crimes. Dominican soldiers and police officers are regularly gunned down in the country, with criminals targeting them to make away with their weapons. Black market guns in the Dominican Republic usually can be sold for 500 to a 1000 US dollars.

The would-be assailant seen bleeding out in the video was wearing flip-flops, indicating that this was likely a crime of desperation. A good Samaritan tried loading him onto the back of a motorcycle to take him to a hospital, but the victim was too far gone and succumbed to his wounds. 

As Predicted by Abreu Report, Politician Who Promised Return to Gold Standard Found Dead After "Apparent Suicide"

In 2016, Reinaldo Pared Perez was believed by many to be destined to become the next president of the Dominican Republic. At the time, he decided to begin promoting the idea that the Dominican Republic, having the largest gold mine in the Americas, should return to the gold standard and free itself from the clutches of international bankers. 

In 2016, we wrote: "The Caribbean island-nation had one of the world's most stable currencies, on parity with the US dollar, but after the US invasion of 1965, the very same characters who had been instrumental in the assassination of President Trujillo returned in the employ of foreign mining companies.

Among these characters was Richard Volman, a suspected CIA agent who worked for the Canadian mining giant Falconbridge, and who was deported after coming under suspicion of orchestrating another coup against the state.

Despite being deported, Mr. Volman managed to return to the Dominican Republic, and in the decades since, Falconbridge has essentially taken over the Dominican mining sector, stripping the country barren and only paying a meager few percent profit to the government." 

Gun found near his left hand, but he was a righty.
In 2016, we speculated that Mr. Pared Perez would become the target of international bankers, and just this past Thursday, he was found dead in his residence, with a gun by his side, indicating "an apparent suicide." Not following standard protocol during the death of a high-profile political figure, the Dominican coroner's office has, in less than 24 hours, released his body to be buried. 

According to the Dominican police, Mr. Pared Perez committed suicide because he had succumbed to a mysterious cancer, and thus there was no need to conduct an extensive autopsy. 

The Dominican police have decided to instead concentrate on the leak of his autopsy pictures, with many saying that the pictures were leaked as a message to anyone who may try going against the international bankers and the foreign mining conglomerates that dominate the Dominican Republic.

Using his right hand to write.
The Dominican police found the Glock that Mr. Pared Perez used to commit suicide next to his left hand, but everything seems to indicate that he was right-handed, so it behooves common sense that he would use his left hand to commit suicide.

The fact that the autopsy of Mr. Pared Perez has been rushed, that there's been no mention in the mainstream media that he was right-handed but that the "suicide" gun was found next to his left hand, and that he had made powerful enemies of North American mining cartels, should raise a few eyebrows among anyone who knows how the CIA has long operated in Latin America. 

Before Building Wall, Dominican Republic Should Launch Military Incursion into Haiti

The despicable tyrant Rafael Trujillo, who ruled the Dominican Republic with a bloody iron fist for more than three decades, decided, without consulting the people, to cede territory to Haiti. The provinces of San Rafael de la Angostura, San Miguel de la Atalaya, Hincha, and Las Caobas, which together represented 10% of Dominican territory, were ceded by Trujillo to his counterpart, Stenio Vincent, who received a large chunk of Dominican territory merely for agreeing to help Trujillo in dealing with dissidents to his diabolical regime.
Where the wall should run.
In Historia de la República Dominicana, Volumen 2, it is revealed in shocking detail how Trujillo engaged in a "quid pro quo" with Vincent, ceasing territory which was clearly established in treaty as belonging to the Dominican Republic. 

Although today the territory stolen from the Dominican people by Trujillo and his co-conspirator Stenio Vincent is largely deforested and most Dominicans have been violently removed, possession of this territory by Haiti represents a slap on the face to all of the Dominicans who shed blood to ensure that we remained a free and independent people. 

As it currently stands, Haiti doesn't have an army and is politically unstable, the very truth is that the central government cannot effectively control the very territory it is erroneously calling its own. 

The Haitians residing in the stolen provinces will welcome Dominican leadership, as it will mean a more secure and stable state able to guarantee the economic stability of its residents. The Dominican government will likely be able to launch a bloodless incursion to recover the stolen provinces. 

To finish construction of a wall with Haiti before regaining control of the stolen provinces would be a tragic loss for the Dominican people's future, and a devastating blow to its history, as Pedro Santana, our first president, was born in Hincha. 

Untreated AIDS and COVID in Haiti: Why the Dominican Republic is Putting Up a Wall

In recent weeks, the emergence of new strains of COVID-19 in South Africa and Brazil threaten to undo much of the progress that many countries have made in bringing the pandemic under control. Scientists who were at the end of 2020 excited to see the pandemic ending shortly, quickly saw themselves sink into despair as data began to emerge of what happens when someone with untreated HIV comes down afflicted by COVID-19 for long periods of time.

The Los Angeles Times recently wrote that a "scenario involving an immunocompromised patient somewhere in England may have spawned the mutations that distinguish the U.K. strain."

A preliminary study on medRxiv highlighted the alarming threat that untreated HIV poses to worsening the world's ability to bring the coronavirus under control. The study's authors wrote: "In South Africa, the country with the world’s biggest HIV epidemic, one concern has been the possibility of prolonged viral replication and intra-host evolution in the context of HIV infection."

At the start of the pandemic, then-President Danilo Medina shut down the border after receiving the shocking results of a study by Imperial College London which revealed that unmitigated spread of the virus would result in over 2 million dead in the United States alone.

We're more than a year into the pandemic and the situation has only marginally improved, with the President of the Dominican Republic receiving classified information that a new, deadly strain of the coronavirus is almost certain to emerge in Haiti, a nation where 1 in 50 individuals is living with HIV, many of them untreated/undiagnosed.

COVID's new first line of defense? Z101
President Luis Abinader, himself a descent of Arab immigrants, shocked the world after the announcement to build a sophisticated, expensive barrier with its poorer neighbor, not revealing the exact reason for the urgent necessity to make sure that everyone walking around the Dominican Republic could be accounted for and easily reached by health authorities.

The Dominican Republic is no stranger to diseases coming from Haiti which have crippled parts of the state, with cholera killing over 500 Dominicans in recent years.

As the Dominican Republic seeks to recover economically after the pandemic is brought under control, tourism dollars will become even more crucially important to the economy, something which could jeopardize Mr. Abinader's reelection should a new strain of COVID emerge in Haiti that could undo the country's progress.

The Dominican Republic may be the first nation to announce that it is increasing the security of its border to prevent the spread of a new COVID strain, but it's inevitable that other nations will follow.
