In October 2013, Hillary Clinton was paid $225,000 to speak at Goldman Sachs "Builders and Innovators" conference. The audience at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain Resort in Marana, Arizona was filled with tech entrepreneurs and investors. Some of the attendees said what Clinton said there was nothing controversial or memorable. If it sounds like a lot of money, it is actually roughly on the line what other famous public speakers receive per speech, for example, Donald Trump $1.5 million+, Bill Clinton $225,000+, George W. Bush $150,000, Condoleezza Rice $150,000, etc.
The price tag has less to do with the content of the speeches themselves. Hillary Clinton is the only woman in the U.S to become First Lady and held elected office herself-- even before her husband was the President. She was named one of the 100 most influential lawyers by the National Law Journal. It is a known fact to many that Goldman Sachs is almost like an extended family to the Clintons. When Hilary's son-in-law opened a hedge fund, one of the primary investors in the fund was none other than Lloyd Blankfein, the Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs. Hillary Clinton's top financial adviser is Gary Gensler; he is a former partner of Goldman Sachs who worked in Bill Clinton's administration.
Tony Rodham is the youngest brother of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He is a former repo man, prison guard and private detective who used to work to secure foreign financing for a company. In October 2013, Tony Rodham joined the advisory board of VCS Mining, a Delaware-based company that was planning a gold mine in the Cap-Haïtien and was awarded the contract for carrying mining activities. It was a both lucrative and controversial deal, because Haiti has an estimated gold reserve of about $20 billion and the permit for mining was not issued to anyone in the last 50 years.
In 2009, when Hillary Clinton was at the State Department working with U.S. corporations, she pressured Haiti so that its Parliament does not raise the minimum wage rate to 61 cents an hour from 24 cents. Some memos found from the Wikileaks strongly suggest that the U.S State Department aggressively blocked the proposed minimum wage increase. The U.S Embassy officials in Haiti clearly opposed such wage hike and met several times with the factory owners and in turn, the factory owners directly lobbied against the raise to the Haitian president. The motive behind this move to fix a slave wage rate (less than $5.00 per day) for Haitian workers was perhaps to benefit the big U.S clothing manufacturers like, Levi's, Hanes and Polo.
Even six years after the massive earthquake, many people in Haiti continue to hold that Hillary Clinton's State Department and the Clinton Foundation are responsible for a recovery effort that cost billions, but yielded a very little return. The Haitians often claim that earthquake aid money was mismanaged and lucrative deals went to Clinton cronies. To make room for Caracol Industrial Park, a Clintons' signature project in Haiti valuing $224 million, 366 farmers were evicted, valuable agricultural lands were acquired and as per late 2015, it created only 5,000 jobs instead of 60,000 promised jobs.
Hillary's State Department pressed the Haitian government to fix a slave wage rate per day (below $5.00)-- not to raise the minimum hourly wage rate to $0.62 from the prevailing $0.24 per hour.
One of the 4,368 documents released from presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's personal email server shows an email from her daughter Chelsea Clinton addressed to "Dad" and "Mom" explaining her concerns about the Haitian relief efforts.
Chelsea went on to say that: "If we do not quickly change the organization, management, accountability and delivery paradigm on the ground, we could quite conceivably confront tens of thousands of children's deaths by diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid and other water-related diseases in the near future"
The email is comprised of a seven page letter where she took her time to demonstrate the inability of the United nations to manage the recovery effort. The date this email was written is unknown; however, following the 2010 earthquake, Chelsea Clinton spent four days in Haiti working as a part of the relief effort.
This can't be good for the potential candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton for the presidency of the United States.
According to breitbart.com, the brother of former US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is a member of the board for a mining company that in 2012 was awarded a gold exploitation permit from the Haitian government. These permits that have not been to anyone for 50 years were given to only two companies.
According to the website, this is just the beginning of many revelations that are yet to come in a book by New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweize. The book that will be out soon is titled: "Clinton Cash" will describe the role of Foreign Government and the Clinton foundation in contributing to over $100 million that Bill and Hillary Clinton have in personal wealth.
According to Former US President Bill Clinton, Laurent Lamothe has done a really good job as Prime Minister in Haiti

One of the most important crops grown in Haiti is peanuts. The call for its increased production has led to a tripartite collaboration between the University of Georgia's (UG) research project, Feed the Future Innovation Lab; the Clinton Foundation; and the U.S. Agency for International Development.
Ex-president, Bill Clinton, and patron, Frank Giustra, formed the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP) to start Acceso Peanut Enterprise Corporation, which is developing a supply chain, to raise the living standards of 12,000-plus peasant peanut farmers. The first of a network of supply chains is beginning operations at the Acceso depot, based in Tierra Muscady, followed by 35 other centers. Acceso depots are all-purpose facilities for instruction, seed purchases, and other inventory-related tasks, storage, and distribution operations.
The White House of President Bill Clinton had faced problems regulating their remote approach message because of journalists' capability to act against each other, as we understand from new documents, which were discharged by the Bill Clinton Presidential Library on Friday.
Tara Sonenshine and Tom Ross of the National Security Council composed a 1994 memo saying that journalists were exploiting the absence of coordination between the State Department and the Defense Department. They wrote to Marl Gearan that too many things were happening at State and Defense that the White House didn't know about. And the communicators of the remote arrangement were not being furnished with regular material. They also stated that the foreign policy communicators were not adequately fulfilling the day by day briefing of the correspondents and analysts, to inform and educate them about the plans.
The Clinton Foundation, Virgin Unite and Yunus Social Business have teamed up to re-forest Haiti. The three entity's, backed by three of the world's most influential men, former US President Bill Clinton, billionaire Richard Branson and microfinance creator and peace prize winner Mohammed Yunus, seek not just to replant what has been lost over the past 500 years, but to provide employment, timber, and food while creating a model for programs that can bring positive change to the country. The initiative, called Haiti Forest, has the promise of ten thousand hectares of land from the Agriculture and Environment Ministries in the Artibonite and northern regions of Haiti, and is said to be a Social Business, promoting social benefit over privatized profiteering.
