          Condenan a 30 años de prisión a haitiano por matar a su hija de dos meses      Cache   Translate Page      

EN SANTO DOMINGO, 06 Noviembre, 2018: El Tercer Tribunal Colegiado del Distrito Nacional condenó este martes a 30 años de prisión a hombre de nacionalidad haitiana por matar a su hija de dos meses de nacida, en diciembre del pasado año en sector Cristo Rey de esta capital.

El tribunal, integrado por los jueces Milagros Ramírez, Altagracia Ramírez y Deyvi Peguero, dictó que la sentencia condenatoria en contra de Robenson Pierre sea cumplida en la Penitenciaría Nacional de La Victoria.

En el escrito de acusación se indicó que Pierre ahogó a la bebé en un tanque lleno de agua, el  3 de diciembre del pasado año, en momentos en que la madre de la niña salió de la casa que ambos compartían.

La recién nacida fue hallada muerta por su abuelo, dentro del referido recipiente, cuando éste se disponía a sacar agua para bañarse.

Mediante un comunicado de prensa, el Ministerio Público afirmó que Pierre luego de cometer el infanticidio, emprendió la huida y fue arrestado en fecha 5 de diciembre en la provincia de La Vega, en virtud de una orden judicial emitida en su contra a solicitud de la Fiscalía de esta jurisdicción.

El comunicado detalla que durante la audiencia el Ministerio Público estuvo representado por la procuradora fiscal litigante Mereline Tejera, y en las investigaciones de estos graves hechos por el magistrado Waner Robles.

El Ministerio Público destacó que la celeridad de las investigaciones, “producto de las mejoras que se aplican en la institución para obtener mejores respuestas contra la actividad delictiva, permitió procesar de manera rápida al acusado y lograr que en el juicio de fondo le fuera impuesta la pena máxima”.

          Preocupa en Pedernales misteriosa desapariciòn de tres pescadores en dos meses      Cache   Translate Page      

EN PEDERNALES, (Repùblica Dominicana), 05 Noviembre, 2018: Con voz entrecortada Ángel Pérez recuerda la última vez que vio a su hermano Alexis Martirio Pérez Saviñon de 49 años, padre de cinco niños, el cual desapareció hace más de dos meses junto a su compañero de nacionalidad haitiana solo identificado como Wilfi , mientras pescaba en aguas del Mar Caribe.

Otro de los desaparecidos hace unos once días es Roberto Reyes de 65 años padre de tres hijos cuyos familiares están sumidos en la desesperación.

De acuerdo a una publicaciòn del portal Agenda56.Com, ambas familias aseguran ser extrañas las condiciones en que desaparecen sus parientes pues en ambos casos al parecer le cortaron las sogas que amarraba sus embarcaciones a la orilla llevándose también sus lanchas. Por igual lamentan que las autoridades de la comandancia de puerto Cabo Rojo próxima al lugar donde fueron vistos por última vez no han querido referirse al tema.

Los familiares de estos trabajadores del mar pidieron al Ministerio Público que sean esclarecidos los hechos mientras continúan la búsqueda de sus parientes.

          Chitwood Announced as Candidate for International Mission Board’s Presidency      Cache   Translate Page      

IMB CHITWOOD SPEAKSRICHMOND, Virginia—The International Mission Board trustees’ Presidential Search Committee announced Tuesday, Nov. 6, that the committee will recommend Dr. Paul Chitwood, 48, to be elected as the 173-year-old entity’s 13th president.

RICHMOND, Virginia—The International Mission Board trustees’ Presidential Search Committee announced Tuesday, Nov. 6, that the committee will recommend Dr. Paul Chitwood, 48, to be elected as the 173-year-old entity’s 13th president. The vote to elect Chitwood is scheduled for the Nov. 15 plenary session during the Nov. 14-15 IMB board meeting in Richmond. 

Paul Chitwood, currently executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, has been nominated as the 13th president of the Southern Baptist Convention International Mission Board.Paul Chitwood, currently executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, has been nominated as the 13th president of the Southern Baptist Convention International Mission Board.A former board chairman of trustees for the Southern Baptist Convention's global mission organization, Chitwood currently serves as executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the state’s largest religious organization with 750,000 members in 2,400 churches and 70 associations. He has served in the role since 2011. 

For 18 years, Chitwood served as the pastor of local churches of varying sizes: First Baptist Church, Mt. Washington (2003-11), where he is a member; First Baptist Church of Somerset (1999-2003); First Baptist Church of Owenton (1995-99); and South Fork Baptist Church in Owenton (1993-95). As a pastor, his churches averaged giving 18.5 percent through the Cooperative Program.

During his pastorates, he served as chairman of the IMB trustees from 2008-10, part of his tenure as an IMB trustee from 2002-10. His overseas short-term mission involvement includes work in Brazil, Peru, India, China, South Africa, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Kenya, England, Spain, Germany and Haiti.

“A decade ago, I had the privilege of working with IMB President Jerry Rankin, Clyde Meador, Tom Elliff, and David Steverson to pen the IMB’s vision statement,” Chitwood said. “While the wording was and is important, it simply captures the vision God has graciously given us in His Word. It’s His vision, and the culmination of the work that He has been doing through His church and, since 1845, through Southern Baptists. Our vision is unchanged: a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ.”

‘We need him’

“It is so obvious that God has been preparing Paul for this role in so many ways,” said Dr. Rick Dunbar, chairman of IMB’s trustees and a member of the search committee from Madison, Mississippi. “Examine his work history, denominational experience, trustee background, educational history, leadership and team-building history; hear his heart for missions and the Lord, to be shared with the entire world; listen to his wife as she eagerly anticipates this role — and I think you will agree: We need him.”

Dunbar said the more the search committee talked, prayed and thought about Chitwood, “the more the entire committee has come together united in knowing he is God’s choice for our next president. He has the biblical foundation, a heart for missions and a proven track record of leading a big organization.” 

Dr. Chuck Pourciau, chairman of the Presidential Search Committee and senior pastor of Broadmoor Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana, echoed Dunbar’s endorsement.

“Little did the Presidential Search Committee anticipate the meandering path that would be this search,” Pourciau said. “There were many twists and turns, but our commitment remained singular. It didn’t matter what path we took as long as we ended up in the right place. The right place is to locate and recommend to the trustees the person God had already chosen as the next leader of the International Mission Board.

“We are unanimously agreed that we have done just that in recommending to the IMB trustees Dr. Paul Chitwood as our next president. Dr. Chitwood is uniquely qualified to lead us into the next era of Southern Baptists reaching the nations. His missions heart and leadership acumen will serve us well in the years to come. I am eager to watch God work through him as he leads our international missions efforts. Yes, brothers and sisters, we did indeed arrive at the right place, and that right place is Dr. Paul Chitwood.”

‘Passionate about missions’

Paul ChitwoodPaul ChitwoodAs executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, Chitwood has led the organization to a greater focus on strengthening local churches, planting new congregations, evangelizing the unchurched, and shifting more funding to international missions. He identified the need to move more Cooperative Program funds from state mission budgets to the Southern Baptist Convention budget and, ultimately, to the IMB budget. Last year, the convention reported more churches planted and growth in the number of Kentucky Baptists involved in volunteer mission work in Kentucky and around the world.

In consideration of leading the largest denominational missionary-sending body among American evangelicals, Chitwood has stated that he is committed to the organization’s next executive vice president being someone with significant mission-field experience. Chitwood has traveled extensively overseas in support of the IMB and worked alongside IMB missionaries, Dunbar said, which gives him a view into the missionary life and task but also makes him realize how much he will depend on men and women who have long-term overseas experience.

“I am very happy to join with the rest of the Presidential Search Committee in recommending that Dr. Paul Chitwood be approved as our next IMB president,” said Duane Ostem, an IMB field leader from Asia who served on the committee to provide a field-based perspective. “Dr. Chitwood is passionate about missions. He understands the workings of the IMB. He loves missionaries. His humble but strong leadership style will enable him to work well with our Richmond personnel, our field missionaries, and our Southern Baptist churches. His vision for the future will inspire and guide the IMB as we seek to make disciples of all nations.”

By Chitwood’s request, pending trustee approval, Dr. Clyde Meador will remain in the President’s Office as interim EVP during the transition. Meador has served as IMB interim president since Sept. 27, 2018.

“I have known Paul for 16 years and have consistently been impressed by and thankful for his commitment to the spread of the gospel to the ends of the earth, as well as his excellent leadership skills,” Meador said. “When Paul was serving as chairman of IMB trustees, he became an integral part of the leadership team, even to the point of having a significant part in crafting our vision statement that continues as a guide even today.

“Paul’s keen insight, leadership strength, commitment to the Great Commission, humility, and understanding of the lost world that lies before us, as well as unusual knowledge of the SBC, all combine to make him the ideal next president of IMB.”

‘A proven leader’

Chitwood was Kentucky Baptist Convention president in 2005-06; first vice president in 2003-04; and president of the state pastors’ conference in 2002. He was chairman of the SBC Committee on Nominations in 2015-16, and he also has served on several other state mission committees and in associational leadership committees. He has served as a trustee of Crossings Ministries, Sunrise Children’s Services, Kentucky Baptist Foundation, Oneida Baptist Institute, Baptist Haiti Mission, and Bridges to Nigeria.

He is an adjunct professor of leadership at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He previously has been an assistant professor of missions and evangelism at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, University of the Cumberlands and Boyce College.

A native of Jellico, Tenn., Chitwood is a 1992 graduate of Cumberland College (now University of the Cumberlands), where he has served as a trustee. He earned a master of divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1995 and a doctorate from the seminary in 2001. He currently is pursuing a master’s degree in nonprofit administration from the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame.

“As I have studied our IMB history and our past presidents, it is clear that God continues to build on the foundation laid down by so many,” Dunbar said. “I have served as a trustee under Jerry Rankin, Tom Elliff, David Platt and Clyde Meador. They are all different, but I believe that each was called to this position with a unique perspective and giftedness, and we thank God for all of them. Paul brings a unique perspective also. He is a proven leader, motivator, and mobilizer, he is committed to missions, and he gives his all to the pursuit of God’s will.”

Chitwood and his wife, Michelle, have been married for 25 years. Their family includes son Daniel, 22, and daughter-in-law Derrika; daughter Anna, 20; daughter Cai, 12; and a foster daughter, age 6, who they hope will soon join the family through adoption.

“Michelle, his wife, is fully committed to this role, and we see qualities in her that will compliment Paul in the president’s role,” Dunbar said. “She is eager to be an active part and sees this as a calling for her also. She embraces the challenges this role presents. She sees their family’s role not as a sacrifice but an opportunity. She will be a great asset to the IMB. You will love her.”

Transitional activity

On Feb. 12, 2018, former president David Platt asked trustees to begin their search for the next president of the mission entity. The trustees’ presidential search committee accepted presidential nominations through May 15, and a committee of more than a dozen trustees plus a former field leader have worked diligently since February. Trustees will vote on the recommendation of Chitwood as president during their plenary session, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15, at 10 a.m. EST. 

Prior to the vote, Southern Baptists will honor the appointment of new missionaries during a Sending Celebration in Richmond on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. EST. Join the celebration via Livestream. Forty-two Southern Baptists will be presented as candidates for appointment at the Nov. 14 meeting.

Saturday, November 17 @ 11:30 am

Sunday, November 18 @ 3:30 pm
Room 8301 [Building 8, 3rd Floor]

In Haitian Creole with simultaneous interpretation into English

Individuals who migrate often experience the loss of cultural norms, religious customs, and social support systems. The adjustment to a new culture brings forth changes in identity and concept of self. In the case of Haiti, how do these changes affect the motherland – and the Haitian communities of the Diaspora?
In this panel, academics and experts in the literary field will speak to the issue of Haitian migration, racial, gender, and national identity, and ultimately, of life in the balance. With Pauris Jean-Baptiste (writer), Pierre Buteau (historian), Inéma Jeudi (journalist), and Claude Charles (ethnologist). Moderated by Marleine Bastien, Executive Director of FANM


#MeToo Movement in the Afro-Caribbean Communities
Sunday, November 18 @ 5:30 pm
Room 8301 (Building 8, 3rd Floor)

In many African-Caribbean communities, reactions to the #MeToo movement often reflect a lack of adequate thought about abuse; in fact, these reactions can even indicate increasing levels of gender-based violence as a norm. Women brave enough to come out with their ordeals are often silenced or made to face backlash for their choice to demand justice. Academics and writing professionals will discuss the blurry lines between abuse and what is considered “normal” gender relations and “natural”’ male behavior in Haiti and other African-Caribbean countries, and present ideas on ways that literature can support the women in impoverished/conflict countries. With Judite Blanc (research psychologist), Monique Clesca (UN Specialist), Marlene Chouloute-Hyppolite (writer), and Georges Bossous (human rights activist). Moderated by Anaïse Chavenet (literary publicist). [In Haitian Creole with simultaneous interpretation into English]

Haiti doesn't have large concentrations of whites, so a white president (as if that would ever happen) would likely do nothing for Haiti. Georgia, on the other hand.... However you feel about blacks and whites, anyone who is familiar with both groups knows how different they are. If I were to pick two groups to throw together with the intent of building a stable society, it wouldn't be blacks and whites. Btw, Voodoo isn't unheard of among blacks in Georgia, especially along the coast.

I know everything I need to know about what happens when blacks are in charge from Detroit, Haiti, South Africa, etc.
So, electing a black person as governor of Georgia will turn Georgia into Haiti, eh? Irregardless of that person's policies... merely the melanin the person's skin, I suppose.... Well, so, I guess if electing a black governor in Georgia will turn Georgia into Haiti, then Haiti could become like the U.S. by electing a white as president -- I suppose, not necessarily even a particularly intelligent one, just any white person would do, no? Magic melanin... or lack thereof, I guess... You know, all of these articles that are mirrored from VDare are such worthless crap. I would suggest to Ron (in case he's listening) that the line "republished from VDare" should appear at the top of these articles, not the bottom, just like word count is at the top.

CHICAGO – Republican Erika Harold conceded to Democrat Kwame Raoul in their battle for Illinois attorney general.

Raoul, who was appointed to the state Senate in 2004 to replace the U.S. Senate-bound Barack Obama, pledged to fight Trump as attorney general, saying the president’s agenda will hurt the environment and undermine a woman’s right to an abortion.

“We reject the hate that has come from Donald Trump ... [and] the policies that come from them,” he told supporters at a victory party in Chicago after winning the seat vacated by Democrat Lisa Madigan.

Raoul spoke about his immigrant parents, who came to the U.S. from Haiti, and recalled how his physician father sometimes accepted payment in goods such as cheese in exchange for his medical services.

“You better believe I am going to live out my father’s legacy and fight for access to health care,” he said.

Raoul, 54, boasts a variety of legal experiences, including as an assistant Cook County state’s attorney, and he criticized Harold’s lack of experience as a prosecutor.

Harold, an Urbana lawyer who used scholarship winnings as Miss America 2003 to get a degree from Harvard Law School, is a civil litigator who dismissed Raoul’s complaints and posits herself as an able administrator willing to take on public corruption.

Harold wished Raoul well in her concession speech.

“We need an attorney general who will be able to take the politics out of the office and to be able to bring us all together,” she told her supporters.

Raoul has built a record in the Legislature of fighting illegal guns and restructuring workers’ compensation laws to curb abuses.

He said the attorney general’s role has expanded in modern times to include defending taxpayers against federal overreach on issues such as the Muslim travel ban and keeping immigrant families together. He pledged to expand the post’s vigilance in fighting online sexual predators and fighting gun violence with better trauma treatment of victims who research shows sometimes become perpetrators.

Libertarian Bubba Harsy of DuQuoin also was on the ballot.


          Trump’s Plan to End Birthright Citizenship Has Been Tried Elsewhere. The Human Rights Abuses Were Horrific.      Cache   Translate Page      

Last week during an interview with Axios, President Donald Trump revealed that he would like to try to end birthright citizenship (jus soli) through an executive order. The implications of this threat, which would primarily affect children of undocumented persons and noncitizens, are incredibly dark. In establishing his desire to unilaterally overturn about 120 years of established practice—and the Constitution and federal law—Trump is adopting the playbook of some of the most vicious nationalists from other parts of the world. Stateless people are among the most invisible in the world. This condition has historically enabled the commission of atrocities with impunity. Trump’s xenophobic rhetoric, and his government’s actions, has created fertile ground for state-sanctioned abuse to flourish.

Burma and the Dominican Republic offer two of the most dramatic examples of what mass denationalization actually looks like in practice. Over the years, Burmese military rulers have used mass denationalization to target the Rohingya—an ethnic and religious minority, perceived by most Burmese as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. In 1982, the junta’s Citizenship Law stripped the Rohingya of their citizenship. Overnight, about 1 million people became stateless. In 2013, meanwhile, the Dominican Constitutional Court revoked the nationality of more than 200,000 people, primarily those of Haitian descent.

In the United States, mass statelessness is already not that far off. A study by the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan, nonprofit think tank, indicates that denying birthright citizenship to babies with at least one unauthorized parent would inflate the unauthorized population from 11 million to 24 million by 2050. Much of this population is unlikely to have ties to any other country. Many others have no proof of citizenship from their country of origin and so cannot pass nationality to their children. Trump’s executive order would cast hundreds of thousands into a self-perpetuating class of de facto statelessness.

If this happens, these stateless people will face the potential for severe civil rights abuses. Nationality is one of the main ways people are bestowed with political rights. Countries face little pressure to care for the stateless, meanwhile. Take the Dominican Republic, which abolished jus soli citizenship in 2013, with retroactive application. The court’s ruling that children born in the country to undocumented foreign parents after 1929 had never been entitled to Dominican nationality stripped 200,000 Dominicans—mainly of Haitian descent but without any connections to Haiti—of their citizenship. Activists and international organizations condemned the move as the culmination of a long history of anti-Haitian racism and xenophobia.

In the Dominican Republic, stripping these people of their nationality has served to solidify their “other” status and legitimize abuse. The Georgetown Law Human Rights Institute found that children without documentation in the DR have been denied access to schools and universities, despite a constitutionally guaranteed right to education. Consequently, they have had no access to the formal labor market and are unable to strive to improve their standards of living. They cannot vote and are denied access to public services like health care. They are also at high risk of arbitrary arrest and deportation. In 2016, a scorching report from Amnesty International revealed that more than 40,000 of these stateless persons—including children—were swept up in a wave of arbitrary, unending, and illegal deportations. In 2015, unsanitary conditions created a deadly cholera outbreak in makeshift camps, where thousands continue to suffer.

Nowhere has the horror of statelessness been more evident than in Burma. That country’s denationalization policy has affected at least 1.5 million of the estimated 2 million Rohingya, leaving them homeless and with no legal recourse. Statelessness has directly enabled human rights atrocities, including the widespread rape of Rohingya women and girls, and murder of Rohingya babies. This escalated into a genocidal pogrom that has claimed the lives of at least 10,000 Rohingya in one of the most appalling human rights crises of our time. Human Rights Watch reported in 2015 that about 8,000 Rohingya who have undertaken perilous journeys in attempt to flee the country were stranded at sea; hundreds died. Indonesian, Thai, Bangladeshi, and Malaysian authorities have been accused of pushing boats carrying Rohingya back. Today, nearly 1 million Rohingya continue to live in squalid refugee or internally displaced person camps in Burma and Bangladesh, malnourished, with no access to water.

In America, birthright citizenship has prevented the creation of stateless people. If it is revoked, Mexicans and Central Americans, who account for about three-quarters of all unauthorized immigrants, will be hit the hardest. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents already terrorize local communities with impunity. Imagine what they’d do if millions more people in this country were turned stateless. The U.S. does not have a good legislative or legal framework for recognizing or addressing the needs of stateless persons. The smallest infraction or interaction with police could result in expulsion. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has already indicated he intends to speed up deportation cases to ease clogged courts. With thousands more potentially on the dockets, immigrants’ due process protections will likely be stripped bare.

The stateless live in purgatory. They will have no right to vote or to a fair wage. They will have no access to health care. Their ability to travel will be severely restricted. Creating or validating the “outsider” status of people born in the U.S. will have calamitous effects on the integration of immigrants into society, causing generational damage, with profound psychological effects, especially on the young. U.S.-born children will be unable to sponsor their undocumented parents, tearing families apart. Atrocities do not occur in a vacuum. Trump’s nationalist dog whistling has surged in advance of the midterms, culminating in Trump’s racist call for an end to birthright citizenship. From “separating” babies from their parents, to disallowing survivors of domestic violence from seeking asylum in the U.S. (a policy that particularly affected Hondurans, Guatemalans, and Nicaraguans), to stoking hysteria about caravans of Latin American migrants, Trump has weaponized racism and xenophobia against immigrants in real and devastating ways. So, while the Rohingya’s and Dominican’s experience with statelessness seems extreme, there is far less reason than in the past to think that this horror can’t be replicated here. In June, Trump tweeted, “When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came.” Creating a class of stateless persons will expose hundreds of thousands—including children and infants—to the threat of such mass expulsions. With no “home country” to return to, they could easily languish indefinitely in camps or detention centers, without a right to counsel. (Trump has already promoted the idea of these “tent cities.”) We need only look at other countries that have gone down this road to see how antithetical to America’s purported values—and how truly ugly—that would be.

          Spiritual Keys to Open Windows of Heaven and Receive God's Blessings      Cache   Translate Page      

November is one of the most glorious months of the year! It is during this time of jubilant holidays we get to escape from work and school, and with Christmas bonuses we are encouraged to think about others and bless them instead of thinking only about ourselves. We see our favorite bell ringers and hear about all of the great work that is being done all around the world for those who are living without basic necessities. It is a joyous time for humanity to come together and celebrate life! And yet for some people, this time of the year has the opposite effect, and they are filled with dread because they shudder at any opportunity to give their money away. Instead of taking joy in the season of giving, they clench their fist tightly around their money and grumble. For these people, tithing is agony, giving is a veritable apocalypse and missions is Armageddon itself.

This kind of giving fear never seems to be connected to the lottery or casinos, both of which depend on people's faith not in God but in luck and chance. Instead of "agony" and "apocalypse," the world uses :"amazing," "astonishing," "awesome" and "awe-inspiring," power words to describe the $1 billion lottery jackpot. If the world can muster the faith to trust a gamble, why can't God's people trust Him to make good on His infinite promise to provide for their needs and to bless them abundantly?

The kingdom of God is full of people of light, love and life. We are the children of His promises, which include abundant living. His track record of faithfulness to carry out His Word stretches back millennia. And yet stinginess and the fear of lack is nothing new among people. Jesus addressed it head-on. He warns us, "You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money" (Luke 16:13b, NLT), and taught that "if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will commit to your trust the true riches?" (Luke 16:11, MEV). He got to the core of the matter when He declared, "for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matt. 6:21). Pastor Craig Groeschel puts it this way: "We give up things we love for things we love even more."

The truth is, God has money for anything He wants done, and He will channel that money through people. Trusting God with our tithing and giving opens up the windows of heaven to allow God to pour out blessings we cannot contain so that we can be a conduit for His provision. If we believe obedience to the Word of the living God can allow us to conquer any adversary; if we believe that being filled with the Holy Spirit and praying faith-filled prayers have the power to change nations, open up doors that no man can shut and release us to be God's witness to the ends of the world; and if we truly desire to live a life of epic, excellent and exciting power, we must understand what the Word of God has to say about giving. Then we must do what it tells us to do.

It is up to us to share with the world the power that can be gained through trusting Jesus Christ, God's Word and the Holy Spirit. But it is also up to us as leaders, servants, pastors and evangelists to correct people's misperceptions about giving. People may have chosen to block out the Word of God and all that it can offer their life simply because someone in the past presented the idea of tithing in a negative way. There are actual people in the world today who believe all God wants is their money and that there is nothing else for them in Jesus Christ or the church. We must be the ones to help eliminate this lie from the world and help people to understand the true nature and power of God's Word. God is not trying to take away from people; He is trying to open people up so He can bless their lives far beyond measure.

This season, it is also up to teach our congregations the importance of a heart-attitude that trusts God enough to love and bless those who are in need freely, as well as tithe into His kingdom. As we present the Word of God, let us be mindful of the power of our words and the effect they can have on people's perception of God. We must present tithing in appropriate terms. We must present salvation in appropriate ways. We must model for them that when we create a lifestyle of helping others to be blessed by God, He shall bless us in the process! As Proverbs 11:25b (NLT) says, "Those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed."

Be refreshed, be renewed and be blessed.

You are beautiful; I see Jesus in you.

          Senior Pastor      Cache   Translate Page      

Quisqueya Chapel is seeking the Lord for our next senior pastor to build on our past history of ministry as well as provide the servant-leadership needed to guide us in advancing the Kingdom of God in Haiti and around the world.

Quisqueya Chapel (referred to as “QC” or “the Chapel”) is:

  • An international, inter-denominational, evangelical church ministering in the English language in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  The term Quisqueya is the Taino indigenous term for the island of Hispaniola.
  • An independent body of believers made up of a wide variety of races, ethnic backgrounds, economic, spiritual maturity, and educational levels.  QC has Haitians, expats, missionaries, diplomatic personnel, professionals, students, children, short-term and long-term workers, all coming together to worship and build each other up in the faith.
  • Many QC attenders are involved with local schools, orphanages, and national/international organizations (e.g., Mission Aviation Fellowship, Christian Reformed World Missions, Free Methodist Mission, Church of the Nazarene, World Vision, Crossworld, Wesleyan Missions, USAID, Compassion International, foreign embassy staff, and local businesses).
  • Founded in 1971, QC is well known and respected in Haiti.
  • Owns 3.7 beautiful acres that are partially developed with several buildings.  These buildings have classroom space, a nursery, three offices, a library, three gazebos and a large playground.
  • 250 to 300 attend the contemporary worship service on Sunday mornings.
  • Sunday School for all ages
  • CrossFit exercise group that meets twice a week
  • Timothy Leadership Training (TLT) group
  • Thursday evening Bible Study
  • Several informal groups
  • Missions and Services program supports five missionaries, three in Haiti and two abroad, and manages a benevolence fund.
  • Employs one office manager, a security guard, and two groundskeepers.  While there currently no associate pastors, QC has employed a youth pastor from 2012-15 and hopes to hire one in the future.
  • Volunteers from the congregation lead worship, small groups, and other essential activities.
  • Congregational governance with a board of elders and deacons.

DID YOU SAY HAITI?

Yes!  Haiti is a beautiful, tropical, mountainous, vibrant country of eleven million people.  Haiti has many beautiful beaches, mountain get-aways, and historical sites.  Direct flights from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Montreal, New York, and Atlanta arrive in Port-au-Prince daily from many major airlines.  Haiti’s national protestant church is growing in both size and maturity.  

Haiti can be a challenging place to live and work.  There are major problems like unemployment, illiteracy, instability, corruption, and lack of reliable infrastructures.  While these are problems, Haiti is statistically the safest country in the region with a murder rate of less than half that of the regional average.  A major focus of ministries currently working in Haiti is to develop the maturity of leadership and sustainability of development programs.  QC is well positioned to encourage, guide, mentor, and disciple Haiti’s next generation of leaders.

There are over 1 million people of Haitian descent living in the United States and Canada and that number continues to grow.  For Quisqueya Chapel, this means that more and more people living in Haiti are fluent in English.  The English-speaking community is full of spiritually lost people in need of discipleship and a church community.

DESIRED CHARACTERISTICS:

  1. Servant leadership. Seeking to model servant leadership, leading by example and walking alongside the church as it seeks to fulfill it’s mission statement. 
  2. A talent and passion for preaching from a scriptural foundation with openness to the Holy Spirit in the selection of texts, focus of the message, and applications drawn from the text. 
  3. A passion for mentoring and discipleship ministries both personally as well as training others to disciple.  
  4. Values small group ministry
  5. Committed to prayerfully seek God’s will and guidance for the future direction and emphasis of ministries for the church. 
  6. A demonstrated ability to work with a variety of religious, cultural, denominational, and socio-economic backgrounds in one church family. 
  7. A warm friendly demeanor that sets people at ease and makes them feel comfortable and welcome. The successful pastor at QC will be warm and genuine in all his relationships.
  8. The ability to encourage Quisqueya Chapel to be a church family of ministers who take care of one another and from that foundation reach out to bring the world around us to Jesus. 
  9. Comfortable working with a small staff, elder/deacon board, and worship committee with a variety of volunteer lay leaders. This position is a hands-on ministry opportunity.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  1. A lively and growing Christian faith with a strong Biblical foundation.  Tolerance for denominational and dogmatic differences. 
  2. Ordained, preferably with Master of Divinity or equivalent studies and previous pastoral experience. 
  3. Experience in cross-cultural as well as pastoral ministry.  A disposition and aptitude to adapt successfully in a cross-cultural setting.
  4. A really good preacher with a good platform presence.
  5. Enjoys people, is quite pastoral, and has good social charisma.
  6. Proven leadership qualities based on a facilitating, serving style. Capable of acting as a visionary and values leader for a diverse congregation. 
  7. The candidate and spouse should have a sense of adventure, and enjoy other cultures.
  8. Articulate in English and having an aptitude and willingness to learn a second language. 
  9. Good at written communications. 
  10. Is in good health, with a strong work ethic coupled with self awareness to lead a balanced life.
  11. Has strong family relationships with full support of spouse and family to follow this call. 

MAJOR FUNCTIONS:

  1. To shepherd the spiritual growth of the Church at Quisqueya Chapel. 
  2. To give yourself in prayer, worship, and to the Word. 
  3. To articulate Quisqueya Chapel's mission, philosophy, and strategy, and to give leadership to the fulfillment of these. 
  4. To fulfill main pulpit ministry, retaining openness to other ministers as occasion arises. 
  5. With the Board Chair, facilitate the Board to fulfill its governance and ministry functions. 

What opportunities are there at QC?

In the last twenty years, QC has evolved from a church populated mostly by expatriate missionaries and aid workers to a international congregation made up primarily of Haitians desiring to worship in the English language.  Because of this transition, one of the major opportunities at QC is the integration of Haitians and expatriates into the life of the congregation.  

  • to help make QC a place where the English-speaking Haitian community and the English-speaking expat community grow together.  Gal 3:28: "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
  • to better utilize the Chapel’s property for Christian ministry.  Some ideas that QC has considered include sports ministries, offices of Christian NGOs, and providing space for a Christian school.
  • to rebuild a once dynamic youth ministry.
  • to grow QC through discipleship, small groups, bible studies.
  • to develop leadership both in QC and in Haiti to advance God’s Kingdom.
  • to better engage the greater English-speaking expat community including NGOs, embassies, and other groups.  Specifically, to become socially active in the expat community for both the sake of soul-winning and to add to the congregation additional leadership and financial support.
  • The expat community in Haiti is very large (i.e. over 45,000 US citizens live in Haiti), and church involvement is low with many expats forming small groups or home churches.  In five years, with the right leader, QC can easily grow to over 500 people.  With a corresponding rise in income the senior pastor could be fully paid and a youth pastor be brought on board.
  • Pastoring QC in Port-au-Prince is somewhat akin to a big fish in a small bowl. The opportunities to make an impact within leadership and upper economic strata in the community is substantial.

Trump is indeed a dangerous man.  Here is an op-ed by UTSA Professor Dr. Roberto DeAnda that succinctly makes the case. Folks need to see through all the smoke and mirrors and vote AGAINST the "instigator in chief."  Our democracy depends on it.

-Angela Valenzuela


Instigator-in-Chief

By    





Scrape away the buffoonery, oddities, and hyperbole, Donald Trump is a dangerous man.

Trump has presided over our country with a rabid nationalistic fervor, clawing away at a multitude of scabs that for long veiled deep divisions among Americans. One enduring feature that came out of the Civil Rights era was a degree of civility in the way people addressed each other. The racial epithets hurled easily and overt acts of racism in an earlier time became more subtle and nuanced with coded words as scabs hiding the deep gashes of the past. For much of the post-Civil Rights era, we have had what Duke University sociologist Eduardo Bonilla-Silva calls "smiley-face racism."

Since Trump campaigned for the presidency and particularly after he was elected to the office, the smile has given way to a menacing scowl.

Trump has spewed utter hate, virulence, and antagonism against individuals, groups, and countries alike. With boastful masculinity, he wants to lock up Hillary Clinton, describes Congresswoman Maxine Waters as a woman of low IQ, and refers to women as pigs and dogs. Trump publically airs his hate toward LeBron James, NFL football players who protest by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem, and he associates certain African countries, Haiti, and El Salvador with excrement. Trump hails his disgust toward Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos, refers to Mexicans as rapists, drug dealers, gangsters, murderers, essentially the scum of the world, and heartlessly separates Central American children from their parents as if they were cattle. Trump characterizes Muslims, Middle Easterners, as well as Mexicans and Central Americans as terrorists. He despises the mass media, characterizing it as the enemy of the people that generates fake news. In Trump's world, there are many enemies that he abhors.
Unfortunately, the hate does not end with Trump. He is a vehicle for carrying that virulence to his supporters, providing them a license to hate and do harm to these enemies. Put simply, Trump, the self-proclaimed nationalist, is the Instigator-in-Chief.

In the last couple of weeks, part of Trump's hate list has turned  into the hit lists of homegrown terrorists. Cesar Sayoc, a 56-
year-old white man from the Miami area has been charged for mailing 14 pipe-bombs to critics of Trump, including Barak Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Senator Corey Booker, Senator Kamala Harris, Representative Maxine Waters, and George Soros. Sayoc, whose van is covered with anti-media and pro-Trump stickers, possessed a hit list of 100 potential targets.

On October 24, Gregory A. Bush, a 51-year-old white man, sought his way into a predominantly black church in Jefferson, Kentucky, but could not enter the building. He subsequently drove to a local Kroger store where he started shooting, killing an African American man and woman inside the store and in ts parking lot. A witness reports that Bush said "whites don't shoot whites" during the melee.

On the morning of October 29, Robert Bowers, a 46-year-old white man, entered the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and unleashed a barrage of shooting that resulted in the deadliest mass attack against Jews in the history of the United States. Bowers killed 11 members of the synagogue and injured six others. Before the murder spree, Bowers made numerous anti-Semitic comments on social media criticizing a Jewish resettlement agency for bringing "invaders" to "kill our people." After being captured, he is said to have told a SWAT officer that all Jews need to die.

Over six days, 13 persons killed and six injured. An additional 14 persons could have potentially lost their lives.

Is Trump directly responsible for these killings and potential loss of lives? No, the three assailants are responsible for their own actions. The Instigator-in-Chief, however, is not an innocent bystander. We need to recognize the recklessness of Trump's words and deeds that prod others to take action.

Imagine, for a moment, if President Obama tweeted and spewed hate against whites and Republicans. Imagine further if ardent Obama-supporters took up arms and killed innocent people. No doubt, Obama would have been removed immediately from office.

          Spiritual Keys to Open Windows of Heaven and Receive God's Blessings      Cache   Translate Page      

November is one of the most glorious months of the year! It is during this time of jubilant holidays we get to escape from work and school, and with Christmas bonuses we are encouraged to think about others and bless them instead of thinking only about ourselves. We see our favorite bell ringers and hear about all of the great work that is being done all around the world for those who are living without basic necessities. It is a joyous time for humanity to come together and celebrate life! And yet for some people, this time of the year has the opposite effect, and they are filled with dread because they shudder at any opportunity to give their money away. Instead of taking joy in the season of giving, they clench their fist tightly around their money and grumble. For these people, tithing is agony, giving is a veritable apocalypse and missions is Armageddon itself.

This kind of giving fear never seems to be connected to the lottery or casinos, both of which depend on people's faith not in God but in luck and chance. Instead of "agony" and "apocalypse," the world uses :"amazing," "astonishing," "awesome" and "awe-inspiring," power words to describe the $1 billion lottery jackpot. If the world can muster the faith to trust a gamble, why can't God's people trust Him to make good on His infinite promise to provide for their needs and to bless them abundantly?

The kingdom of God is full of people of light, love and life. We are the children of His promises, which include abundant living. His track record of faithfulness to carry out His Word stretches back millennia. And yet stinginess and the fear of lack is nothing new among people. Jesus addressed it head-on. He warns us, "You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money" (Luke 16:13b, NLT), and taught that "if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will commit to your trust the true riches?" (Luke 16:11, MEV). He got to the core of the matter when He declared, "for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matt. 6:21). Pastor Craig Groeschel puts it this way: "We give up things we love for things we love even more."

The truth is, God has money for anything He wants done, and He will channel that money through people. Trusting God with our tithing and giving opens up the windows of heaven to allow God to pour out blessings we cannot contain so that we can be a conduit for His provision. If we believe obedience to the Word of the living God can allow us to conquer any adversary; if we believe that being filled with the Holy Spirit and praying faith-filled prayers have the power to change nations, open up doors that no man can shut and release us to be God's witness to the ends of the world; and if we truly desire to live a life of epic, excellent and exciting power, we must understand what the Word of God has to say about giving. Then we must do what it tells us to do.

It is up to us to share with the world the power that can be gained through trusting Jesus Christ, God's Word and the Holy Spirit. But it is also up to us as leaders, servants, pastors and evangelists to correct people's misperceptions about giving. People may have chosen to block out the Word of God and all that it can offer their life simply because someone in the past presented the idea of tithing in a negative way. There are actual people in the world today who believe all God wants is their money and that there is nothing else for them in Jesus Christ or the church. We must be the ones to help eliminate this lie from the world and help people to understand the true nature and power of God's Word. God is not trying to take away from people; He is trying to open people up so He can bless their lives far beyond measure.

This season, it is also up to teach our congregations the importance of a heart-attitude that trusts God enough to love and bless those who are in need freely, as well as tithe into His kingdom. As we present the Word of God, let us be mindful of the power of our words and the effect they can have on people's perception of God. We must present tithing in appropriate terms. We must present salvation in appropriate ways. We must model for them that when we create a lifestyle of helping others to be blessed by God, He shall bless us in the process! As Proverbs 11:25b (NLT) says, "Those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed."

Be refreshed, be renewed and be blessed.

You are beautiful; I see Jesus in you.

          The Legal Aid Society Hosts Annual Pro Bono Publico Awards      Cache   Translate Page      

 

The Legal Aid Society hosted our annual Pro Bono Publico Awards ceremony in October. Many firms, companies, and individual volunteers were honored for their work on behalf of The Legal Aid Society. Of particular note were the honorees presented with The Honorable Jonathan Lippman New York Pro Bono Publico & Public Service Law Firm Award and the Law Leadership Award.

In recognition of his exemplary leadership and dedication to the needs of the less fortunate, The Legal Aid Society in 2015 established The Honorable Jonathan Lippman New York Pro Bono Publico & Public Service Law Firm Award. The award is presented annually to the law firm whose exceptional pro bono commitment to the Legal Aid Society and its clients has furthered Judge Lippman’s goal of “Making equal justice for all not just an ideal, but truly a reality.” This year, the award was presented to Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP. Alongside the dedicated staff of The Legal Aid Society, volunteers from Davis Polk have been engaged in representing clients whose legal needs encompass every aspect of our work; championing the rights of children, defending the accused, and ensuring equal access to justice in every borough. For decades, Davis Polk has provided generous philanthropic support, outstanding advice and counsel, and zealous advocacy which has helped Legal Aid become the preeminent provider of legal assistance in the nation. But it has been the unwavering provision of direct legal assistance to the marginalized communities, families and citizens of New York City that has been the hallmark of Davis Polk’s renowned Pro Bono practice. Under the leadership of Legal Aid Board Member Daniel S. Kolb, Senior Counsel and Sharon Katz, Special Counsel for Pro Bono, the attorneys, legal assistants and administrative staff at Davis Polk have demonstrated a sustained commitment to meet the needs of the less fortunate in New York City.

Also honored at the ceremony was Jerri Shick of O'Melveney & Myers, who received the Public Interest Law Leadership Award for her extraordinary contributions as a leader of O’Melveny’s outstanding pro bono program, and for her constant support of The Legal Aid Society and its clients.

Jerri’s stewardship has allowed O’Melveny associates to work alongside Legal Aid staff and assist clients with disabilities, protect the rights of immigrants, advocate for marginalized youth and defend inmates from excessive force. An active member of the Association of Pro Bono Counsel as well as the New York City Bar Association’s Pro Bono and Legal Services Committee, Jerri co-chaired the Committee’s “Best Practices” efforts to provide forums in which pro bono professionals from the public and private sector can discuss common challenges and learn from one another. Jerri was honored by the New York Law Journal as a “Lawyer Who Leads By Example” in 2014 for her work assisting Holocaust survivors, earthquake victims in Haiti and New Yorkers recovering from Hurricane Sandy. Jerri’s dedication and passion for pro bono has inspired her colleagues at O’Melveny to provide hundreds of hours working on behalf of disadvantaged New Yorkers.

          Timberland Makes New Commitment to Green 500,000 Square Feet of Urban Space in Us Cities Over Next Five Years      Cache   Translate Page      

Known worldwide for its outdoor heritage and environmental responsibility, Timberland has a longstanding commitment to protect and restore the outdoors. Not only the great outdoors, but the city parks, community gardens and green spaces people explore every day.

In 2016, Timberland made a public commitment to create or restore green spaces in five U.S. cities over five years, equivalent to or greater than the brand’s retail footprint in those cities. With the completion of three urban greening events this fall, Timberland has met its commitment two years ahead of schedule – greening a total of 130,000 square feet of space, far beyond its retail footprint in those cities.

Today, the brand re-set the calendar and is upping the ante with a new goal. Over the next five years, Timberland has pledged to create or restore at least 500,000 square feet of green space in cities across the U.S. – equivalent to 11 acres and nearly four times the amount of urban space greened through its most recent effort.

“At Timberland, we are guided by a greater purpose -- to step outside, work together and make it better.  Urban greening is a powerful way to bring this notion to life,” said Jim Pisani, global brand president, Timberland. “Green spaces are the heartbeat of a community. They not only provide a place to play and explore, they also help enhance quality of life. Simply put, they make neighborhoods stronger. We are proud to make this commitment today, so these vibrant city spaces can be enjoyed for generations to come.”

This fall, Timberland partnered with the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and Journeys on urban greening events in three U.S. cities. On September 27, roughly 75 volunteers gathered in Chicago to transform the Blue Island Corridor in Ward 25 into an instant park for the community. On October 17, 150+ volunteers joined forces in New York City to restore a rooftop greenhouse, construct an outdoor classroom and create a living roof at the Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics in East Harlem. And this past Thursday, November 1, 100 volunteers teamed up in Los Angeles to create an urban farm in Little Green Acres Park, and provide access to fresh, healthy produce for local residents. 

“We were proud to partner with Timberland on these urban greening initiatives,” said Jaime Matyas, president and CEO of the Student Conservation Association. “We worked closely with each city to determine specific needs and opportunities. Then we pulled on our boots and got to work. Today we have a new park in Chicago, a green rooftop in Harlem, and a flourishing urban farm in Los Angeles. The response from the community was nothing short of inspiring.”

Timberland launched its urban greening initiative in 2016 in New York City, revitalizing an abandoned community garden in the Bronx. In 2017, the brand partnered with the Center City District Foundation in Philadelphia to help transform a portion of abandoned elevated tracks from the Reading Railroad into a new public green space for the city.

Timberland’s greening efforts are not limited to the United States. The company has a robust global tree planting commitment, with 9.6 million trees planted to date – everywhere from the Haiti and the DR to China’s Horqin Desert -- and a goal to reach 10 million by 2020. In Europe, Timberland has teamed up with the King Baudouin Foundation to support the creation, maintenance or improvement of greenspaces in five European cities in five years through a grant program called My PlayGreen.

There is a unique space where you can encounter everyone from developers of self-driving cars in Silicon Valley to city planners in Niamey to humanitarian workers in Kathmandu Valley: the global OpenStreetMap (OSM) community. It comprises a geographically and experientially diverse network of people who contribute to OSM, a free and editable map of the world that is often called the “Wikipedia of maps.”  

What is perhaps most special about this community is its level playing field. Anyone passionate about collaborative mapping can have a voice from anywhere in the world. In the past few years, there has been a meteoric rise of locally organized mapping communities in developing countries working to improve the map in service of sustainable development activities.

The next opportunity to see the OSM community in action will be the November 14th mapathon hosted by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR)’s Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI). Mapathons bring together volunteers to improve the maps of some of the world’s most vulnerable areas, not only easing the way for emergency responders when disaster strikes, but also helping cities and communities plan and build more resiliently for the future.

GFDRR’s engagement with local OSM communities

[[tweetable]]The 2010 Haiti earthquake served as a wake-up call about the need for access to better quality information for reducing vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change impacts.[[/tweetable]] In the years since, OpenDRI has turned to the OSM platform as an important way to bring people together to create open data, learn new skills, and support the human networks that eventually become key actors for resilience. We can gather people in a room around something exciting, like a mapathon, and start a conversation about sharing information for the benefit of everyone.

[[tweetable]]Any data, technology, or tool is only as valuable as the way and the extent to which people use it[[/tweetable]], and that’s why building sustainable mapping communities is so critical for this work. Even as we engage governments to promote the use of open data and open source tools, OpenDRI also strives to nurture local communities of OSM users and developers from universities, NGOs, and innovation hubs. To that end, OpenDRI supports local OSM communities and conferences like “State of the Map” whenever possible, particularly by funding scholarships for attendees who would not otherwise get to attend, learn, and share knowledge.

Participatory mapping in Asia and Africa

OpenDRI started its work with OSM by supporting the growth of local mapping communities in  Indonesia, the Philippines, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, including through the Open Cities Project. Many of these communities were quick on their feet to respond to the devastating 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. More than 6,000 volunteers helped add data to the OSM platform, mapping up to 80 percent of affected zones, an effort which continues to provide invaluable information to emergency response and preparedness efforts.In the years since, OSM communities across Asia have come together to exchange knowledge and build connections at a series of open source mapping conferences. The fourth “State of the Map Asia” conference will take place in Bangalore, India, this month.

In Africa, the stakes for OSM are even higher, because it is often the only digital map available for many locations. Recent years have brought a rise of participatory mapping communities across Africa, which now total more than 30 active local OSM groups. Africa’s first-ever “State of the Map” conference was held in Kampala, Uganda in 2017.

Building on that momentum, OpenDRI recently launched the Open Cities Africa project, currently supporting the development of teams in 11 cities across Africa. These teams are taking the lead in collecting data remotely and on-the-ground through participatory mapping, thus building mapping capacity in their local OSM communities. They are also collaborating with World Bank teams to use the new OSM data to help address a range of development challenges, from urban flooding in Kinshasa to coastal risk management in Senegal. Drawing on our experiences in Asia, we are incorporating novel approaches in our engagement in Africa, including online learning, gender integration, disruptive technologies, and design research.

What’s next for local OSM communities?

About this series
More blog posts


Local OSM communities are hopeful that the future will see a larger and more diverse population of mappers worldwide – this will be key to improving the “Wikipedia of maps” even further. As technology giants join the global OSM community, we are now exploring how new machine learning mapping techniques might complement and amplify the work of local OSM communities.

Over the past seven years, the OpenDRI team has been hard at work to create local communities around open-source mapping as part of our drive to promote open data for resilience, and that effort will continue.

To discover the OSM community for yourself and learn more about the benefits of using geospatial data for addressing the world’s most critical development challenges, join us on Wednesday, November 14 for the OpenDRI mapathon at the World Bank.

Dependencia tributaria de España reclama $1.8 millones a Mario Vargas Llosa
El pleito le ha obligado al escritor a pedir una hipoteca privada y a presentar las escrituras de la casa que posee en el centro de Madrid
Madrid - La Agencia Estatal de la Administración Tributaria española reclama $1.8 millones de a Mario Vargas Llosa, una deuda con la que el escritor no está de acuerdo, por lo que ha decidido mantenerla suspendida para que no entre en fase ejecutiva, informó hoy la web Vanitatis.
Una maniobra realizada por consejo de sus abogados y que le ha obligado a pedir una hipoteca privada y a presentar las escrituras de la casa que posee en el centro de Madrid como aval por la cantidad que le reclama Hacienda, según la citada web.
La casa en cuestión, que Vargas Llosa se quedó tras su separación de Patricia Llosa, no está sin embargo a nombre del nobel, sino de una sociedad holandesa de la que es el accionista mayoritario.
Según la web, Vargas Llosa recibió la notificación de Hacienda hace unas semanas.
Una noticia que llega poco después de que Vargas Llosa y su actual pareja, Isabel Preysler, hicieran público que todos los papeles del divorcio del escritor ya están en regla, por lo que podrían casarse en cualquier momento.
De hacerlo, sería el tercer matrimonio para el escritor hispano peruano -tras los de Julia Urquidi y Patricia Llosa- y el cuarto para Preysler -que se casó con Julio Iglesias, Carlos Falcó y Miguel Boyer.

POR ALFREDO VARGAS CABA
06 OCT 2018, 12:00 AM
En la narrativa histórica de los haitianos, el hecho de que su rebelión contra Francia se viera coronada de éxito en 1803, les dio el derecho de apropiarse de todo el territorio insular cuando fundaron el estado haitiano un 1° de enero de 1804. Así constó en su primera constitución.
Sin embargo, la colonia de Santo Domingo no formó parte del territorio que los haitianos conquistaron y que había pasado a dominio francés por el tratado de Basilea, en 1795, mediante el cual España le cedió a Francia los dos tercios orientales de la isla a cambio de Guipúzcoa, en el País Vasco.
Su primer intento de conquista, en 1805, culminó en una retirada haitiana que dejó un amargo recuerdo en la siquis de los cibaeños con los degüellos de Moca y Santiago de tristísima memoria.
La ocupación haitiana de 1822 culminó con la declaración de independencia y fundación de la República Dominicana en 1844, seguida de 12 años de guerra, hasta que el Imperio Haitiano fue vencido por las armas dominicanas en 1856.
Leyendo a intelectuales haitianos como Dany Laferrière, electo en 2013 a la Académie Française, resalta que la guerra de independencia de Haití fue un hecho de violencia y crueldad, a la par de la que por más de un siglo les impusieron los franceses a los esclavos africanos.
La población haitiana de 1804 era de un 98% de negros esclavos y 2% de mulatos, traídos desde mediados del siglo 17 y oficialmente a partir de 1697, cuando España le cede a Francia, la tercera parte occidental de la isla, a cambio de que Francia desocupara Cataluña.
Estos esclavos provenían de varias etnias africanas cuyas lenguas y tradiciones eran muy diversas y rivales entre sí. Haití ha sufrido del cáncer del racismo institucionalizado de negros contra blancos y mulatos. Los mulatos surgieron de los apareamientos de amos y negras durante más de un siglo.
El Código Negro de 1685, instituido por Colbert bajo Luis XIV, reglamentó la esclavitud y el trato que Francia impuso a sus colonos en Saint Domingue. Por ende, la experiencia de los esclavos rebeldes que fundaron la República de Haití en 1804 no tenía nada en común con los habitantes blancos, negros o mulatos de la parte oriental que hasta hacía poco estuvo bajo dominio español en la isla.
Los historiadores haitianos han querido apropiarse de la historia de toda la isla, para desconocer a los habitantes de la parte oriental que se establecieron desde el siglo 15 (1492-1522), comenzando con uno de los nombres aborígenes de esa parte: Haití.
Así como los haitianos no son “los franceses”, tampoco los dominicanos son “los españoles”.
Tenemos que cambiar la narrativa de nuestra historia desde la perspectiva de los pueblos que luego se constituyeron en los dos estados que ocupan la isla.
Las primicias que ambos países con legítimo derecho se atribuyen, deben ser objetivamente reconocidas por ambos, al margen de ideologías y teorías económicas del siglo 21.
Haití tuvo la primicia de ser la primera república de esclavos negros del continente, al liberarse de Francia.
La República Dominicana y el pueblo dominicano tienen las primicias de la época colombina de los descubrimientos y conquistas de Castilla y Aragón, y más allá, a través de medio milenio, de la integración racial entre blancos y negros. Es injusto que los haitianos se refieran a los dominicanos como esos españoles que trajeron esclavos a la isla y asimilarnos a los franceses, sin más.
Es sorprendente que, en el siglo 21, se le quiera enrostrar un racismo al pueblo dominicano, cuya población lleva más de 500 años mezclándose entre blancos y negros, cuando el racismo institucional forma parte del ADN del estado haitiano o el racismo que se le enrostra al estado dominicano es más bien importado por asesores extranjeros de ONG infiltrados en el Gobierno, en desconocimiento de la historia e idiosincrasia del pueblo dominicano.
Los castellanos, aragoneses, catalanes y andaluces que se asentaron en el valle de la Vega Real entre 1494 y 1514, que son los ancestros de los cibaeños de hoy, que nunca se fueron de la isla, no fueron los españoles conquistadores de México, Perú y Suramérica. El imperio español nace en 1516 con Carlos Primero de España y Quinto de Alemania (1519).
Sí, los españoles trajeron a los primeros esclavos africanos hacia 1520 y ya en 1522 hubo la primera revuelta. Los pocos cañaverales que se crearon alrededor de la ciudad de Santo Domingo desaparecieron para 1580 cuando ya había quebrado la incipiente industria azucarera.
La mayoría de esos africanos se volvieron cimarrones y libertos de facto, lo que favoreció que, a partir del siglo 16, en las regiones del sur de la cordillera central, se establecieran comunidades de negros libres con apellidos españoles similares a los que había al norte de la cordillera central (sierra del Cibao).
Toda la retórica de los intelectuales haitianos sobre la esclavitud es solo aplicable al territorio haitiano ya que los negros y mulatos del lado español de la isla, lo que hoy es la República Dominicana, no sufrieron la esclavitud ni remotamente como la impuso Francia en Saint Domingue, hoy Haití.
Por ende, es totalmente infundado pretender que la gesta liberadora de Toussaint Louverture o Jean-Jacques Dessalines tuviera que ver con las personas de color “aun esclavas” en territorio hoy dominicano.
La república que Dessalines, Christophe y Pétion fundaron en 1804 como un estado racista de negros contra blancos, fue pronto desmembrada con un reino y un imperio que reemplaza a los blancos franceses como los amos esclavistas de la mayoría negra, a nombre del estado. Lo que perdura hasta el siglo 21.
Los criollos de habla española, habitantes de la parte oriental de la isla, circunstancialmente bajo Francia en ese momento histórico, no tuvieron que ver con la esclavitud del pueblo haitiano.
El pueblo dominicano fue abandonado por el imperio español desde fines del siglo 16, dejando que la isla se despoblara oficialmente a partir del 1603 (siglo 17), y cediendo a Francia su territorio insular cuando la integridad de España peninsular se vio afectada en 1697 (Cataluña) y 1795 (País Vasco).
En ningún momento se consulta al cibaeño o al habitante de Santo Domingo si queríamos ser franceses.
En el siglo 20, el imperio americano ocupa a ambos países e impone al lado dominicano de la isla braceros haitianos en la reintroducida industria azucarera, en el sur, este y costa norte, no así en el valle del Cibao.
O sea, es una iniciativa americana, y de su lacayo Trujillo, que braceros haitianos vengan a trabajar en los cañaverales propiedad de americanos, con la complicidad de los gobernantes haitianos de turno.
¿Dónde está históricamente sustentado que los dominicanos hayan sido esos blancos racistas que esclavizaron a los pobres negros haitianos?
¿Desde cuando existe un régimen de apartheid en la República Dominicana?
¿Desde cuando son los dominicanos xenófobos, cuando en RD ser “extranjero” era casi una “profesión”?
Tan pronto la élite minoritaria que domina al estado haitiano reconozca que la independencia dominicana en 1844 se basó en la realidad de dos pueblos totalmente diferentes, que no son compatibles por ser de culturas e idiomas disímiles, se podrá llegar a un entendido con el estado dominicano, para emprender proyectos comunes que estimulen el desarrollo en Haití, excluyendo la exportación de su excedente de población a territorio dominicano.
Si no existe esa precondición de respeto a nuestra identidad y soberanía, el estado dominicano debe resistir cualquier intento de la comunidad internacional a ser el depósito de las masas de Haití que buscan en nuestro país un bienestar que no han sabido crear y estabilizar en su fallido país.
Los dominicanos debemos favorecer todo lo que favorezca el desarrollo de Haití en sus límites territoriales, pero oponernos a que los infiltrados haitianos gocen derechos en territorio dominicano que ni los mismos dominicanos tienen.
Debemos imponer a los nacionales haitianos en República Dominicana los mismos requisitos que ellos imponen en Haití a los nacionales dominicanos. Los haitianos que no cumplan y los dominicanos que los exploten y trafiquen deben ir a la cárcel. Si son extranjeros deportarlos.
Los dominicanos no se deben dejar amedrentar por un falso discurso de esclavitud, racismo y xenofobia que se basa en manipulación de la historia y en un neocolonialismo de extranjeros que pretenden hacer en nuestro país, lo que no harían en el suyo.
La economía dominicana no necesita explotar a haitianos o dominicanos, ni depender de Haití. Cuando se nos invite a participar lo haremos, pero es nuestro interés prescindir de Haití y de los haitianos. No hemos sido sus opresores, ni lo somos. Somos vecinos que nos debemos mutuo respeto.
Comencemos limitando la difusión de los mitos de la rebelión haitiana en nuestras escuelas, como si sus héroes y su pasado fueran parte de nuestra historia, en detrimento de los valores de nuestra república, de integración racial y apertura al mundo que caracterizan a los criollos dominicanos, cuyos ancestros llevan medio milenio construyendo un nuevo mundo de raíces occidentales y no tribales africanas como se estila en Haití.
Los haitianos no han podido sostener un estado viable pues se sustentan en valores negativos. El futuro se construye sobre valores positivos como Dios, Patria y Libertad.
Los dominicanos no se deben dejar amedrentar por un falso discurso de esclavitud, racismo y xenofobia que se basa en manipulación de la historia y en un neocolonialismo de extranjeros que pretenden hacer en nuestro país, lo que no harían en el suyo.
