Obama Bypasses Congress, Gives $1.5 Billion to Muslim Brotherhood
Big Peace ^ | 3/21/12 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 03/21/2012 6:04:50 PM PDT by Nachum

During a trip through Colorado in December of last year, President Obama spoke of his intention to implement his economic policies with or without the approval of Congress. Said Obama, “And where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves.” It now appears that such a mindset applies not only to economic matters but to the distribution of foreign aid as well--in particular, foreign military aid for the Muslim Brotherhood, who now hold the reigns in Egypt. Congress has restricted and, in fact, halted military aid to Egypt until

Term limits is the only way we are going to get congress’ that will do what they were actually voted IN for. As it stands now, once in, its all about re-election after that. Pretty easy to corrupt in my book.

For the author to blame Obama for this shows abject ignorance.

This is SOLELY the fault of the US Congress who authorized the money.

Sheesh. Talk about Bullsh!t. Does everyone understand who the US Dept of State works for?

...you can expect more of this S*** as the narcissistic little boy king loses power....
It is an attempt by the narcissist to turn from a passive sense of victimization to an active role in giving pain to others, while at the same time attempting to rebuild their own (actually false) sense of self-worth. It may also involve self-protection and preservation, with rage serving to restore a sense of safety and power by destroying that which had threatened the narcissist.

Throughout history when the citizens of a nation find that they can not and will not be accorded either justice or redress from those, Judges, bureaucrats, or politicians, tasked with administering justice and or redress, the citizens find they must correct these miscreants, quite often violently, by hanging, guillotine, or simply shooting.

From watching what is happening in our nation, a correct observation would be that judges, bureaucrats, and politicians, have failed to study or acquire any knowledge of such history.

The only things I can possibly say I have to self-delete.

If Congress and any Rs in the Senate do not shout, kick, scream, beat down doors, and stop this crap, then they deserve to get tarred and feathered and thrown out of DC next week.

I can’t believe we’re living through this and the media, “conservative” talkholes and all the Rs are dead silent.

Yes. Been wonderin’ ‘bout that myself.

Only thing I/we can think of here at the ranch is that 16 Trillion dollar Federal Reserve secret giveaway to banks, and cronies around the World.

Perhaps he’s using the Federal Reserve to go around Congress somehow, and if so that’s an ado that must be addressed, and stopped.

If you were not being such a smart ass I would be calling you an idiot right now.

Congress authorized the money with the proviso that Dept of State said everything is hunky dory.

Congress abdicated. They could have declined to authorize the money, or stated which conditions would cause them to vote to authorize the money.

Instead the gave the money to a drunk and a liar, telling him to spend it only on food.

What a nasty reply without backing up your claim.

From the article:

Congress has restricted and, in fact, halted military aid to Egypt until and “unless the State Department certifies that Egypt is making progress on basic freedoms and human rights.”

...

Nevertheless, the news breaking now is that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will soon announce that President Obama will “resume funding for Egypt’s military, despite Congressional restrictions and objections from human rights and democracy advocates.”

So, where is the "certification" from the State Dept. that meets the Congressional requirement?

Excerpt from article

Who knows; perhaps the Obama administration can also circumvent Congress and give the Iranians some nuclear materials or give Hamas some advanced weaponry? I know both ideas sound crazy, but they’re no crazier than giving $1.5 billion in military aid to the Muslim Brotherhood.

"So, where is the "certification" from the State Dept. that meets the Congressional requirement? "

There is no "Congressional Requirement" that has any force of law. POTUS simply acts and it becomes de facto certification. State reports to POTUS.

Once the money is allocated, nothing short of impeachment can stop POTUS. POTUS simply ignores the restriction.

It's ALWAYS been that way except in cases where the Executive chooses to show Congress the courtesy of sending them a letter.

Obama did nothing illegal unless Congress can prove a High Crime or Misdemeanor in an Impeachment proceeding.

Bad on Congress for trusting a Jihadi sympathizer. This is a completely constitutional move by Obama...but he certainly dissed Congress by not even giving them a "reach around" in the form of a letter.

"POTUS simply ignores the restriction"

Therein lies the entire point.

Congress states they require certification from the SoS for the funds to be spent...SoS says POTUS is going ahead anyway.

But EVERYONE in Congress knows their feel-good restriction has no force in law. They knew that when the wrote the appropriation bill.

That's the point.

It's not his money to give away. It's "our" money, and I want Congress and jughead to either give that money back to us, or fix the damned bridges that are falling down across our once great nation.

Damn our politicians and damn islam to hell. Call it tinfoil, but I genuinely believe that these creeps are aiding in building the final components of a planetary police state run by banksters who will use islam as a means to further control the little people.

When running a new world order it only makes sense that you make use of the most fascist cult you can find to help you keep order. That's why the media and our politicians are so soft on terrorists and so quick to bash Christians.
