TELEDJOL - The WMD of Haiti's Dagger-in-the-Back Politics...

HAITI - Teledjol Is the New CNN... LOL... Mezanmi... The Associated press released an article yesterday about how Haiti's national grapevine, the "teledjol", can quickly add yet more chaos to an already messy Haiti...

TELEDJOL - The Grapevine Adding More Chaos To Haiti
TELEDJOL - The Grapevine Adding More Chaos To Haiti

Read the article in full here...

Here is a clip...

"One senator warned of a panic. Another said things were going to be hot. Neither gave any details, but that didn't matter: Within minutes of their comments on the radio... Port-au-Prince, a city of 3 million people, abruptly shut down."

...another example of how Haiti's national grapevine, the "teledjol" -- Creole for "telemouth" -- can quickly add yet more chaos to this already messy country...

... Haiti has long been vulnerable to radio-fanned rumors, driven by the lack of reliable information... Now, there are new elements, including social media outlets such as Twitter adding to the fray, as well as what appears to be an orchestrated effort to undermine President Michel Martelly...

Pause...

What does it mean to Undermine President Michel Martelly?

Definition of UNDERMINE:
- To Erode the base or foundation of (a rock formation).
- To Dig or excavate beneath (a building or fortification) so as to make it collapse.
- To subvert or weaken insidiously or secretly (trying to undermine his political rivals)

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh... Ahhhhhhhhhh.... Hmmmmmmmm...

Continue...

The article talks rumors of Prime Minister Gary Conille's "sudden resignation last month because of behind-closed-doors sparring with Martelly" and how "Conille, a newcomer to Haiti's dagger-in-the-back politics, downplayed the disputes until he resigned four months after assuming the post."

Dagger-in-the-back politics... Wi Fout... That's a new word!

The article also talk about rumors that Aristide was going to be arrested, rumors that "Rene Civil, a longtime supporter of two-time President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, announced on radio last month..."

"The rumor proved useful to the Aristide camp," the article says

Read the article in full here...

"One senator warned of a panic. Another said things were going to be hot. Neither gave any details, but that didn't matter..." they are still senators and they have immunity from arrest under Haiti's constitution...

No matter what you do in Haiti, No matter what you say, as long as you are a Senator of the republic, you have immunity from arrest under Haiti's constitution

The funny thing is... this is the same constitution that the Haitian senate is using to undermine President Michel Martelly.

Rumors... rumors... more rumors... under mination... resig nation... revokation... Ah bon, men nation... se gwo koze...

To hell with the presidency... I have got to become a senator of the Republic!

Question:

TELEDJOL... Creole for "telemouth" as AP says, is it simply Haiti's national grapevine OR... Is it carefully being used by Haiti's dagger-in-the-back politicians as a weapon of Mass destruction???

Ever since Aristide set foot back in Haiti, it has been nothing but chaos.

Him and all those who refuse the country to advance should be arested and maybe executed for treason.

Not even one good in favor of Haiti has ever come out of their mouths.

The nation of Haitiens need to bring their hearts to God in heaven, to much demons are walked on that land. The funny thing is: these big wicked blood already have millions, they are not satisfied, they want more and more; may God in heaven deal with them. Tonton makoutes tried to give trouble in Haiti, where are tonton makoutes with the blue uniforms?

Now Jean Claude Duvalier and Jean Bertrand Aristide are out of politics.

Haiti need somebody like King David to give these corrupt nation massage terrapy (manyin membres yo), Haiti don't need a dictator anymore, but somebody who follow God in heaven to destroy selfishness and to take off these
