The State Department today announced that John Kerry would spend $10 million "to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in humanitarian emergencies worldwide."
"Secretary of State John Kerry announced Monday the provision of $10 million in funding for a new U.S. initiative, Safe from the Start, to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in humanitarian emergencies worldwide. Secretary Kerry emphasized that in the face of conflict and disaster, we should strive to protect women and girls from sexual assault and other violence," reads the State Department press release.
This initiative builds on the framework established by the U.S. National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security and the U.S. Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-based Violence Globally. It will be led by the State Departments Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau of Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance.

Somebody is about to get rich(er). You can’t steal the money until you loosen the purse stings.
Is any of this money going with the aid that we’re sending to middle-aged, middle eastern men who rape 8 year old girls to death?
The tea party opposes this bull****, just another outrageous waste of taxpayer money, so by their lights that makes us “anarchists.”
Thus the appendage to my tag-line.

This sounds like a pipeline for global palm-greasing funds. Makes sense, given that John F. can’t even get a meeting with many world leaders - unless he comes bearing gifts.
That’s very generous of Theresa for giving him $10 million for this little project. Oh, wait, it’s our tax dollars he’s throwing out the window again.
I should have read down the posts. Great minds.
If I remember right Hillary was going to make this her hallmark as Sec of State, too.
Maybe this is a way Kerry can go into a dangerous place with plenty of security in tow and then put himself in for another purple heart.
