Posted on 03/03/2013 1:33:22 PM PST by tobyhill
Secretary of State John Kerry announced Sunday that the United States would provide $250 million in assistance to Egypt after Egypts president promised to move ahead with negotiations with the International Monetary Fund over economic reforms.
In a statement issued after his two-hour meeting with President Mohamed Morsi, Mr. Kerry said the aid decision reflected Egypts extreme needs and Mr. Morsis assurance that Egypt would reach an agreement with the I.M.F. after more than a year of talks over a $4.8 billion loan package.
The statement issued by Mr. Kerry noted that he and Mr. Morsi had discussed the need to ensure the fairness of Egypts coming elections, but it did not mention any specific political commitments the Egyptian president had made to receive the funds.
Parliamentary elections are scheduled for April. Some opposition groups have said they will boycott the vote because of what they see as an effort by Mr. Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood movement to dominate Egyptian politics.
American officials say that Mr. Kerry asserted that moving ahead with difficult economic changes in Egypt would require a degree of political consensus and was implicitly a promise of some political change.

For that, they will cut his head off last.
In the meantime let’s shut down the VA hospitals because of the sequester. These freaking azzhat politicians make my blood boil.
We now return to our regularly scheduled sequester calamity.
Sex and/or power
That's the only conclusion I can come to in modern politics.
It certainly has nothing to do with what's right or wrong.
Scripture says; "Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil"
No defense cuts for Egypt. Muslim Brotherhood rulz!
Borrowing money from China to give to Egypt.
Insanity= Borrowing money from China to give to Egypt.
Millions, Billions, Trillions, soon you are talking about Real Money...........
TERM LIMITS: One Term in Office, Two Terms in JAIL.
Tree, Long Rope. Tar, feathers....
Why are we providing aid money borrowed from the Chinese to the muslim brotherhood-led government of Egypt when we are furloughing people in the Defense Department? These politicians make me sick. Congress should defund this immediately.
Four nearly identical posts from four different people at the same time. That must be some sort of powerful kismit.
What’s next? Aid to North Korea for their missile programs?
How about the News Organizations titling it:
“US Spends $250 Million of Taxpayers Money after the Sequester to Aid Egypt”
i agree with you.
if you’re borrowing money from anyone, you’re not in the position to give money away.
basically, egypt borrowed from china, but the US is on the hook for it. yea, that makes perfect sense
If you are impressed by Santa Lurch’s generosity with American tax money (borrowed from China), remember with trepidation John F’n Kerry’s “service” in Vietnam (eagerly assisting the North Vietnamese of his god, Ho Chi Minh) just before cuddling up to the Viet Cong “representatives” in his Navy uniform at the Paris Peace Sellout.... er, Paris Peace talks. Wait and see what Santa Lurch has in his sleigh for his old pals and new gods in Hanoi!
more money and jet fighter planes for O’s MuslimBrothers pals....you know, the ones the newly-elected O went to speak with First, before even bothering to address the American people
(note that the antiAmerican terrorist Muslim Bros were illegal in Egypt at that time, but O twisted Egypt’s arm to permit them to attend O’s speech..(free of being picked up on arrest warrants....)
Fighter jet paid for by me: OK for Muslim Brotherhood.
Automatic Rifle paid for by me: Not OK for me.
Yeah, for Kerry, going to Vietnam will be like visiting long-time friends. The could compare notes about how each other’s communist takeover is going.
and for the $250 million did he also get some cover for Israel - don’t think so!!
and for the $250 million did he also get some cover for Israel - don’t think so!!
The muslim brotherhood can buy state of the art tasers now for their religous police squads. Arab Spring has sprung anew.
This aid allows Egypt to continue being dysfunctional. Without aid, they would have had to ensure they created an environment hospitable to foreign tourism and business investment.
I don't know where you would have gotten that idea.

Not many FReepers have posted more about that than I have.
What could possibly be wrong with that?
(1) “Sequestration” budget cuts.
(2) Various rebel groups have links to al-Qaeda.
(3) If the rebels overthrow Assad, the Islamic Brotherhood will take power in Syria.
Egypt is run by these people:
AKA The Egyptian Nazi Party, AKA The Muslim Brotherhood!
How thoughtful of us. Just the day the Egyptians announced the creation of their “Islamic Morality Police,” who will enforce sharia by beating people with sticks. They hope to get tasers soon, however, so this $250 million will come in handy.
John effin Kerry is in heaven-
he now has a job traveling the globe giving away the money of American taxpayers and being wined, dined and feted for it
I’m assuming The New York Slimes is reporting all this with a straight face.
“This is America, and in America, we dont careen from one manufactured crisis to another”.

And 250 million would keep the Blue Angels flying for how long?
Answer, until the next election, anyways.
And still no GOP noise about zero giving millions to the islamotrash while cutting Americans out with his siesta sequester.
Looks like a popped open Cranium waiting to happen.
Words just fail me on this one.
In the meanwhile, Teresa Heinz got the Ketchup concession for the Cairo bazaars.
Possible transcript of Kerry’s conversation with Morsi:
Kerry: “Brother Morsi: This reminds me of my meetings with the VC and North Vietnamese in Paris. We got all the problems resolved in a friendly spirit. Glad to work with you.”
How close do you think this is to reality?
Does this mean we have enough money to lock up the illegal aliens again?
Why the middleman? Can’t Egypt borrow directly from China?
A quarter of a billion for islamic radicals, sure pocket chance not like we need it right?
But wait, aren’t we going to ‘suffer’ from those deep 1.5% budget ‘cuts’ from the sequester? Isn’t the national debt over $16.5 trillion?

There is no shutdown of VA hospitals. The VA budget is not affected by this “sequestering”.
When it comes to Kerry yesterday the moribund socialist media made a sounds good big deal about him lecturing Morsi on the treatment of “civil” rights then he turns around and hands them billion$.
Kerry: Let’s give US taxpayer money for crucifixions.
One to ten million dollars per Egyptian Christian crucified.
[Does Kerry get to keep the videos, too?]
This IS insane to us, but perfectly logical to the kenyan muslim in the white house.
Kerry’s boss is obama.
He is a muslim.
He is rewarding his friends and punishing his enemies.
His friends happen to be muslim radicals and his enemies are us.
That would be the headline if a Republican were President. Followed by, “women and children hit hardest”.
I was responding to a report where a man prepped for a colostomy was told to leave because sequestration had stopped all non life threatening services. This a posting that was posted on FR. Whether that report was correct or not, I do not know.
