Obama Sends $147 Million to Hamas-Run Gaza(Flashback to April 2012)
Breitbart.com ^ | 4-13-12 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 11/19/2012 6:59:24 PM PST by Revel

Against GOP objections, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced that the Obama administration is sending $147 million in funding to the West Bank and Hamas-run Gaza.

Despite a “hold by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla.,” the administration is arguing the money needs to be sent on humanitarian grounds. They did not, however, explain how they plan to force Hamas to use the money for humanitarian purposes.

And while “administrations generally do not disburse funding over the objections of lawmakers on relevant committees,” those associated with Obama have proven more than willing to sidestep Congress to place American tax-dollars in the hands of their friends throughout the world. It was, after all, just last month that the administration circumvented Congress and gave $1.5 billion in aid to the Muslim Brotherhood-run Egyptian government.

Yes indeed, it appears we are in for another 4 years of our tax money being spent to promote or arm or shove into power... Muslim terrorists and the Muslim Brotherhood etc, all around the world.

One thing he said that was, regrettably, correct....”Elections have consequences....”

You can buy a lot of rockets for that kind of dough ...

But I'm sure they spent it all on schools, instead.

So Obama pays Hamas to buy rockets from Iran to kill the Jews, that should give Israel the right to bomb Iran nuke sites.

The average American hasn’t a CLUE how much of our tax money Obama has sent down Muslim sh*t holes while he plans to slash the military, threatens to cut medicare and withhold senior’s social security checks!

BILLIONS FOR JIHAD!

Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.

Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 BILLION, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

$400 MILLION, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

AFGHANISTAN: $1.52 BILLION, $86 MILLION above the request
WEST BANK AND GAZA: $665 MILLION in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

JORDAN: $250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

EGYPT: $360 MILLION, $310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

PAKISTAN:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

IRAQ:$968 MILLION,$336 million above the request

Oversight:$20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq

Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 MILLION,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

REFUGEE ASSISTANCE:$343 MILLION,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance:$200 MILLION to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

Peacekeeping:$837 MILLION FOR UNITED NATIONS peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system
Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/... #
ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office-...

And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.

THIS will blow your mind!!

They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

They wouldn’t need the 147 million if they didn’t lob rockets into Israel. They are being rewarded for their evil and Americans are paying for it!

0bama pays Hamas to buy black market rockets and missiles from Iran, Syria and Turkey.....via Benghazi.

“First I have to get things done, like pass health care, and then I will show the Arab world how to deal with Israel....” (guess who)

Remember to look for keywords that 0bama and his body snatchers speak. A couple of years ago, he said one word in English, remember? “Courage.”

In Arabic, that word is “hamas.”

I believe he is using borrowed money to give to Muslim enemies to turn this country into a Muslim country. I believe he is Muslim and will hate this country until it is a Muslim country. When he made the statement he would stand by Muslims if they were threatened, that told me his one goal in life.

The House might as well save us their salaries and just resign and give all their power to Obama, as that’s what they’ve done, the Constitution be damned.

Ever notice that Hillary is no-where to be found anytime all hell breaks loose?

She was missing during this crisis and the up-risings in Egypt, Syria and Libya. Anytime anything something goes wrong in foreign affairs she is gone.

Did I tell you that the country is broke and so we have to raise your taxes and cut your future Social Security?

Its just one of those things. Nothing unusual. Don't think about it too much.

HA-HA, I was just thinking the same thing. She's gained a few pounds too.

Notice Hillary was on all the channels when they got Bin-Laben. I bet she led the operation.

This Marxist administration needs to be stopped, once and for all. The power of the purse clearly lies with the Congress; more specifically, the House.

Obama doesn’t care.....he continues to do whatever the hell his sick mind desires to...
